Rest in peace, Lorna Tuck Colbert

When your son gives a eulogy like this, you know you've done a good job.



Stephen Colbert's mother had eleven children, mostly boys. When Stephen was 10, his father and two of his brothers were killed in a plane crash. This single mom didn't let tragedy bring her and the rest of the family down. Colbert describes a demonstrative mother who, despite a gaggle of kids, was not afraid to let her hair down around her children. "Hugs never needed a reason in our house," Colbert says. Singing, dancing and even pretending to faint on the kitchen floor were encouraged.

"She was fun," Colbert says. "We were the light of her life, and she let us know it 'til the end."

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

God bless her lovely soul.

Kate take note- she raised her all her children without shoving them in front of cameras,
without exploiting them, and without having a t.v. show.

It CAN be done.

And contrary to what Kate and Deanna implied on CWS, an authoritarian, military style parenting for large numbers of kids is not only not necessary, but could even be detrimental. Lorna did just fine raising these kids with lots of hugs, play and FUN. They are children, not soldiers.

Dmasy said...

His eulogy is touching and authentic.



Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Authentic, that's the word!

Kate is a twit said...

Mrs. Colbert truly defines the term "single mother". Here is a tribute to her from a Colbert fan site:

http://www.colbertnewshub.com/2013/06/18/remembering-lorna-elizabeth-tuck-colbert-1920-2013/

Here is a quote that his sister said about their mother:

Said Elizabeth Colbert Busch, “People always say to me, ‘You must be so proud of your brother.’ And I tell them I am proud. But the thing I’m most proud of is being Lorna Colbert’s daughter.”

Will the Gosselin kids ever say that about their mother?

Mel said...

I don't get this dog thing....Kate & Jamie are such good friends, and she's never met the dog, which Jamie has apparently had for some time?

You're that good of friends, and yet you've never been to her house? WTF?

Jumping In said...

When I watched Stephen Colbert's tribute to his mother the other night my heart ached for him and his family. The clariy of his priorities shone through his grief, the strength of his family meaning more to him than the fame he has achieved. A true expression of love.

@Kateplusmy8 Will your cookbook be translated to dutch? I live in the Netherlands and like your show very much. :)

Of course! Kate is a world-famous celebrity, and I'm sure that the book will come out in 88 languages, including Swahili, and she'll do it all herself!

Was it confirmed that the friend Kate visited was Jamie? Did I miss that?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

On another note, she took a trip halfway across the country, apparently to Ohio and then to Michigan, and this is all she can come up with?

That entire trip and there was nothing else interesting to write about?

Either nothing interesting is happening to her or she is just God awful at recognizing what good blog fodder is to write about.

JoyinVirginia said...

I cried when I viewed Stephen s tribute to his mother. Even near the end of her life, she encouraged her son and told him how much she was looking forward to his show. ”I wouldn't miss it” is what he said she told him. How proud she was of all her children. And she had ELEVEN, count 'em, ELEVEN children!!!!!!!!!!!

NJGal51 said...

@Cato_Cat: @Kateplusmy8 great read and so happy for you! Dogs are a great extension to any family. Maybe @cesarmillan could use a new helper :-)

@Kateplusmy8 The color of dog staggering. I love dogs!!!

Staggering? Good grief. It's a grey Great Dane! Apparently this person has never seen a "speckly spotted" grey dog.

Kate is a twit said...

NaughtyButNiceRob is one of the hosts of VH1's show called The Gossip Table. Today, they were discussing Kim Kardashian's baby. Jon called into the show. It seems like it was set up yesterday, because one of the hosts said that she spoke to Jon last night. Some of Jon's answers were a little hard to hear.

Nothing earth shattering that we didn't already know. He's busy with kids, work, family and friends, lives in the woods, etc. He also said that things "are different from 2009 when he was partying, getting sued, getting divorced. Things have calmed down and he's taken to the normal life.

He did say he would tell Kanye West not to put the baby on TV.

Here's the video. Jon's call starts about 2:13. You might have to refresh the page in order to get the video to start.

TLC stinks said...

Mrs. Colbert did a tremendous job raising her family after the tragic death of her husband and two sons in the Eastern Airlines crash of 1974. What a wonderful person she must have been. I grew up with many large Catholic families and they were close, loving, and definitely not rich in money, but rich in love. I guess that is why I am so appalled by Kate Gosselin.

Midnight, I bet Kate did not visit Jamie recently and even if she did, no way would she cuddle up to a dog. I totally believe she photoshopped herself in that photo because the whole blog is a bunch of BS. I think the whole purpose is to portray herself as an animal lover (although she expressly said on TV she does not like dogs because maybe Robert has some more dirt on her treatment of the Shoka and Nala. I don't know, but she is in damage control, that I can tell.

TLC stinks said...

From Ted Aranda's website (the dog trainer). A testimonial from Jamie (oh, she's in the picture she submitted with the dog):

Ted is a great trainer! I was a bit nervous at first. But after spending a few minutes with Ted, I felt relaxed and confident that I would learn all I needed to know about training our Great Dane. I was blown away by Ted's knowledge. On Our first appointment with Ted, I was given the first rule of thumb.When it comes to training Kisa, we were not to try to communicate with her like a child or human. I learned the psychology of a dog and how to communicate with Kisa in a way she instinctively understands! wow! Glad I was taught this important piece of information, because that is exactly what I would have done. However,Ted also said that their is still room to spoil our dogs a little. After all that is why we got them!

Our Great Dane is a wonderful addition to our family...My husband and I and 3 small kids are very happy with the training that Ted has provided us with! She is a huge dog and we really needed to know how to handle her before she became an adult! We have taught her many tricks and many obedience skills, thanks to Ted!

Thanks Ted!!!
Dr. Kirk and Jamie Stubbs, Reagan Brooke and Clay..
and of course Kisa the Great Dane!

Mel said...

Why does Kate always think that she is a xxx-Whisperer?

There's gotta be some weird psychology there.

What a testimony from Mr. Colbert, and the nice things that all of her children said about her. He often spoke of his mother on his show with so much love in his heart for her. I cried all the way through reading this.

Jill P said...

To the person who has Norton and is experiencing pop ups/attacks on her computer:

This happened to me after I downloaded the latest Norton Update about a month ago. There is a major glitch with the update. It is probably nothing to do with the sites you are visiting/Bullyville.

Norton walked me through a fix when I phoned. It seems to be working, so far, but I think I'm done with Norton.

Hope that helps.

foxy said...

This is going to sound wierd, but could the picture of Kate and the dog on her blog actually be Jamie hugging the dog and just Kate's head photoshopped? Jamie has the same hair style, french manicure, etc. as Kate. I cannot picture Kate touching any dog, let alone having her hair touch the fur. And the hair in the coffee? Yeah right, she kept drinking it.

PA Dutch Mom said...

It is so thoughtful of you to post this, admin. Thank you. They have experienced a mother's love in the most blessed way possible. The memories they will have will be of her hugs, and just being kids. It's not about trips, being kid celebrities or expecting material possessions. That family has everything that money can't buy. That could have been a tribute spoken about my own mother. In fact, she even looked like my mother!

I did have a problem with the link provided (it wouldn't play), but there are several others online that I was able to view. It was so touching, unrehearsed and straight from the heart.

Ingrid said...

brought over from last blog because I forgot which one I was on...
============

Kate decided to use Kisa as fodder for her bog, and spun it for the dramatic effect.
----------

Boy we have some great detectives here!!

She is so good at lying and exaggerating that I believe most of her bog was made up. I think Jamie told her to go ahead and make up whatever she wants. I could picture them both working on it and laughing about how Kate would be pulling the wool over everyone's eyes. CC knew she wrote bullcrap and "inauthentic" was the nicest or safest way of saying she is a liar.

If she went to Jamie's that means she must have just stopped in Ohio to see her sister. Jamie is in Michigan. That is quite a drive if she didn't fly. I am surprised she didn't brag about traveling all that way with no one to help her. (or did someone?)

As for the growling, Kisa may "growl" yet not be a mean growl. I had a Rottie once who when she wanted attention would look at us and do a low deep growl noise that sounded scary but it wasn't a bad growl. (we got her as an adult and once we knew what it meant it wasn't scary)

I have always wanted a Great Dane since the time I watched the Disney movie "The Ugliest Dachshund" (way back in the 60's I think)

That eulogy from Steve is beautiful. It is a shame she never got to hear it.

PA Dutch Mom said...

Kate did go on a trip, probably to visit Jamie, and Kisa is Jamie's dog. Why would she photoshop herself into the picture? It doesn't make sense.
Did Kate say that it was Jamie she visited? She was always talking about her bff Jamie, took photos of her cleaning her oven. Why wouldn't she just come out and say that she took a trip to visit Jamie? Why the big secret? She spills everything else...

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

He does indeed have lovely memories. Have you noticed none of his memories involve trips or money? There is no price for a hug, a song, a dance, or even pretending to faint. Lorna's legacy is showing her kids what fun and happiness really is. I am not surprised she raised such a brilliant comedian.

chefsummer said...

What Stephen Colbert said about his mom was very sweet and loving.

And you can tell how much he loves and respects her and miss her.

He did a wonderful job.

I was thinking the same it makes no sense for her to photo shop.

But then again Kate does a lot of thing that don't make sense.

I hope Colbert writes an autobiography some day. Sounds like he has had quite a life, I'd love to read about it.

PA Dutch Mom said...

I don't think that there's any conspiracy going on with the photo. It's not Jamie's body. Jamie's arms are much heavier than that. There's no reason why Kate wouldn't have been lying next to the dog if she wanted a photo like that for her bog. She would have grinned and beared it, if only for a second!

PA Dutch Mom said...

I must be losing it, or I am looking at a different picture. Are there two photos of Kate and the dog? In the one I saw, there is nobody between Kate and the dog, is there? The only weird thing I noticed are Kate's arms. The left arm, underneath her, appears to be a different color than the right arm, but it could just be the lighting.

I need a Rumspringa.

Allisstair
@kateplusmy8 Is that Steve lying between you and the dog?? Just wonderin'. U need a bodyguard even at a friend's

Tucker's Mom said...

Kate, the lying liar who lies.
She's not a dog person. She's not an animal person. She did nothing when she saw that her dogs got off the compound. They were running around in the middle of the road and she did nothing.
Nothing would stop me from getting my dogs back in and safe.
Also, teasing the dog is so not funny. Kate gets her kicks out of others' discomfort. It's not the cruelest thing, but if a guest in my house was making my dogs anxious, I'd tell them to knock it off.
Good to hear from Jon. Sounds like he's really roughing it in the woods!

TLC stinks said...

All I can say at this point is that if the photo is not photoshopped (and Kate does have "man hands"), then it was a set-up by her and Jamie. I think the whole story was concocted in Kate's brain that she is a "dog whisperer". She needed a topic for The Stir, and there you go. Hell, I'll take a picture of me hugging my cat and call myself a "cat whisperer".

Oh, and the other big lie was Twitter Jail. Obviously she travelled to see her sister in Ohio and Jamie in Michigan. I tell you one thing...I don't see her making the drive or flying there by herself.

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

I don't understand what you are saying that it was a set-up. Aren't all of her blogs "set-ups?" She decided she would write a blog about the dog and someone took a photo of her with the dog. Who knows if the rest of the story was true, or just fabricated. For all we know, the dog didn't like her. Then again, maybe it did become attached to her. The problem with Kate is that it's a case of the Boy Who Cried Wolf. One of these days she's going to write (or say) something totally legit, and nobody is going to believe her.

Twitter Jail may also be true. Maybe she had trouble tweeting, but since she was away, why would she bother trying to fix it? She's away having fun...those lowly sheeple weren't worth the aggravation of trying to tweet to them. Would Kate drive to Ohio and Michigan with the twins and without Steve? Who knows, and does it really matter? She ignored her bestest tweeties for a week and now she's back. That's all they care about. Oh, and obviously Irish fan cares -- he's off this weekend to buy a men's cologne that he believes will impress Kate. Good luck with that.

Juliana said...

I listened to Jon and it is hard to understand in parts. He either stated he wants to be on DWTS or he is going to be on. He also said that he thinks he can get further than Kate did. He still lives in the woods and the house does not have an address.

@Kateplusmy8 What a Sweet Story!! I think yall need to get yall a Great Dane!! Shoka needs a dog buddy!! 🐶

Oh, geez, Leigh. That's all Kate needs. Shoka lives outside, gets bored, breaks loose and eats wild animals. We have a Dane, and Harley is a gentle giant, but I can't even imagine Kate dealing with a dog that size, plus Shoka.

Shoka doesn't need a dog buddy. Shoka needs someone to love him, care for him, hug him, and give him more attention than he obviously gets now.

Kate is a twit said...

Hmmm-someone's been working on changing Kate's website. It looks like it was transferred to WordPress.

The tabs have changed somewhat, and there's now an archive section. It still needs updating though. The only tab that actually opens to posts is the "Mom Blog" tab. Otherwise, you have to do a search or click on an archive date. Although there is a "Contact" tab, there is nothing there.

I am assuming, for now, that it is a work in progress.

And of course, the counter still doesn't work correctly.

Millicent said...

I watched Stephen Colbert's beautiful, moving tribute to his mother and cried my eyes out. It truly is a testament to her upbringing that all of her surviving children have turned out to be wonderful adults, most quite successful in their chosen fields. Stephen Colbert is so generous with both his time and his money to a whole host of worthy causes. I'm so sorry for his loss. I remember when his mother had a close brush with death a year or so ago, but pulled through. He abruptly left off filming his show to be with her and his family. On his return, he didn't say anything about it, except I believe one line: "Apparently having 11 children makes you tough as nails."

Through Mrs. Colbert's deep love for her family, she was rewarded with a circle of love in return for all of her days. That's the best any of us can hope for.

TLC stinks said...

Hi, PA Dutch Mom. Ok, let's think about this. A dog attached to Kate? The woman who caged Shoka and Nala for so long they chewed the bars and defecated in the cage? Shoka who is terrified of going for a ride? Oh yeah, she's a dog whisperer all right. All her blogs reck of rewriting history and covering her butt because of bad publicity. The great dane has been trained and is probably very sweet (most are), so she laid down next to her for a nano second, ol' bbf Jaime took the picture and there it is...a made up story about the dog and Kate bonding. I do believe Jamie must have been concerned about Kate getting along with the dog, not the dog getting along with Kate which is what Kate wrote.

silimom said...

I found it interesting that Jon seemed to say at one point that he didn't have television. He was saying that he hadn't heard about Kim K. having her baby. He did ask if they were married and since they're not, Kim would have primary custody so it would be up to her to decide if the baby was filmed or not but he advised against it.

They did ask if they'd see him on reality television again, like DWTS. Jon said he was definitely up for it and thinks he could go farther then Kate.

I doubt DWTS would have him on but you never know. It could be interesting to see if he could get farther. I bet he'd have a better attitude about the whole experience.

Dmasy said...

Great sleuthing by someone to find the link to Jamie and her Great Dane. I read her testimonial.

Did anyone else notice that she does not always have a space after her punctuation. She also made a grammatical error that I have seen in pro-Kate posts. (Their vs there)

It is probably just a coincidence. Things that make you go humm...

Virginia Pen Mom said...

Beautiful eulogy! Thanks for this post, Admin.

So if Lorna were Kate, besides selling her children on TV, she'd have to work the number of kids into her name as a signature sales pitch: 11orna. Obviously, Mrs. Colbert knew nothing about marketing larger families for fun and profit. Right, K8?

I would think if the squirrel was laying on the yellow line, it was already dead.

What's with this "dear" stuff she's been doing lately? She tweeted "Dear Diesel Gasoline", "Dear Teachers", Dear@josh groban, and now "Dear Mr Gray Squirrel".

Seems she is avoiding any direct contact with her tweeties, and just tweets random stuff.

Emily is graduating from HS today, and has tweeted Kate 2 pictures. Is Kate going to respond to her? I'm surprised Emily didn't invite Kate to the graduation.

I read about Pauler Deeeen and her troubles and her strange apology video on tmz. The folks at TMZ said it seemed like it was an ” apology by committee” and they thought it was heavily edited. They had all sorts of advice on how it could have been beret, on how her initial explanatory statement could have been better. Poor Pauler. I like her, I have been to her restaurant in savannah and my oh my they make fabulous fried green tomatoes! But I think she is so clueless about all the n word stuff. Pauler, just say you are old and forgetful and you would never use the n word but you are old and so very very sorry for being so inappropriate. And things are a lot different than when you grew up. And did you mention getting old and forgetful? She could promote the Gullah heritage trail or some other African American historical cause in her local area. Instead of consulting lawyers, she should have just talked to people on the street in savannah. Oh, Pauler, what will become of you. Le sigh.

OrangeCrusher1 said...

To be accurate, Paula Deen has not been fired, her contract expires next month and Food Network is not renewing it. I know, potato, potatah. The real test will be with her endorsements. The woman makes a fortune, has made a fortune and will not be destitute without the Food Network. I would not be surprised if FN had been considering this before the latest embarassment, however. And I think it is the right decision for them to distance themselves from her at this point, as did TLC with KG.

JoyinVirginia said...

OT Happy Solstice day! Our virtual Stephanie whose ad to talk to someone has shown up numerous times, is now apparently a virtual fictitious bride. What would be perfect for someone who had always been 2.5 miles from whatever user of the interwebs? Why, a virtual wedding reception. Did Stephanie get married today or last week or last month? Doesn't matter, she is made up anyway.
Pauler Deeeen will be our caterer. She needs to pick up extra work y'all. Music will be provided by the No BS Brass Band from Richmond VA, really they are a fun party band. Imported rumspringa for all! Imported from Pennsylvania that is. Luke bandit is guest of honor virtually. Since the bride is fictitious and all. Anyone know the fictitious groom s name?
Help yourselves to some rumspringa or lemonade or ice tea while I finish fixing up the place!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think it was gracious and kind to let her contract simply expire. That is more than many people would get. Maybe they felt that the majority of her behavior deserved a gracious send off.

IMO though, she was fired.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Joy you are too funny. Paula Deen as the caterer. I guess she wasted no time getting a new gig!

Hm i just listened to both of Paula Deen's apologies. A couple sentences were awkward and unpolished, suggesting it was unscripted. I can't decide whether she looks caught or just sad.

Dmasy very innnteresting about Jamie's tendency to forget a space between sentences. This is a hallmark of one of our resident trolls who just posted a couple days ago, although we didn't publish it. Could she be Jamie?

This particular troll usually isn't angry, and is usually reasonably respectful of the blog, and will often say "insider-ish" things no one could possibly know for sure. Things like all these kids are well fed every day by Kate, etc. May or may not be Jamie, however if it is Jamie, I feel very sorry for her. She is the very definition of a doormat and deserves better friends than this. No woman, or anyone, should keep a friend who treats them like Kate did in the R.V. episode. Have some respect for yourself and for the word friendship.

How come you weren't complaining and keeping the kids off TV WHEN THE $ was pouring in?


I'd love Jon to answer this. It's a comment from RadarOnline. It's just too convenient for me that he wanted to stop filming only when he knew the show, as he knew it, was over.

Judge Judy was already asked to officiate. Maybe she and Nancy Grace can arm wrestle for the privilege. Dr Drew and Dr Phil will be coming by to provide some premarital counseling. They will referee any awkwardness. That guy who hosts the bachelorette will circulate to make sure no fights break out amongst all those who dated Stephanie. Saint Tony Dovolani of the Ballroom will come by to teach us all a line dance. That adorable Jeff Probst will stop by to host a session where we critique everyone else and find out who was the best reception guest. Then Julie Chen will be over at the end to invite a few of us to the Big Brother house! Bring your packed bags! Andy Cohen is coming over - he's here already! - with cute bartenders and he will snark about celebrities with us!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Did Jon mention filming of his own kids when he called in? I thought he was giving a warning to Kanye and Kim not to film their kid. The show was at its absolute peak when Jon left. They were on every tabloid cover. The divorce episode got millions of viewers, so I don't understand that comment the show was about to be cancelled. Not really, it went on for a couple more years after that just named Kate Plus 8. It was the same show, different title. I would however be curious if Jon could explain what he meant when he has talked about not ruling out the kids being on T.V. He said at one point, it's different now, but I don't know if that means he would have more control of filming or he and Kate have a different understanding of what limits or who knows what. In any case it's a moot point since I doubt these kids are ever going to be filmed again or if they are it's going to be rare....which may be exactly why he isn't stomping around all day long shouting no more filming. Why cause conflict?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Wow, thanks for the transcript. I'll read it with interest.

Why did Paula Deen's husband move her around so much?? What the hay? 23 times just moving around GEORGIA? Apparently she hasn't been living in the same place for more than 4-5 years her entire life. She has money now. Don't you just want to live in one place and stop moving at some point?

Where is her brother in all this?? Seems like he helped to get her into this mess.

This should be quite a read.

How is he trashing Kate?

Cause he said he could beat her if he got on DWTS?

Have you forgotten all the time Kate has publicly trash Jon over and over the past 4yrs?

So Jon got them off Tv and wants them to stay off TV.

Kate wants them to stay on TV so she can be rich.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

That wasn't Carol saying that she posted a Radar comment. And I think Jon 100% owns that he did trash Kate briefly when they got divorced as did she him. They were both upset and both saying things they shouldn't. He said he despised her. That kind of talk is somewhat more understandable during a divorce. It's unforgivable however if it happens four years later.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

The fact that he is warning Kanye not to film says exactly how he still feels about filming. Don't even START, basically. But that comment shouldn't antagonize Kate as much as if he kept going on and on about how he regrets letting their own children be filmed.

I think Stephen Colbert should give the toast.

Tucker's Mom said...

Jon didn't leave the show because of bad ratings, that's just ignorant of the facts. The show died because he left and the dynamic changed. The fact is that Kate started acting entitled and starved for attention. Her outfits got skanky, she acted like she was manic and so pithy and it wasn't watchable.
Her confessionals became near nip slips, as she gestured strangely with her French tipped nails.
Oh, and she lied all the time. Jon kept it real.

One thing that stands out to me in reading Paula's testimony is that she calls people jealous. If someone doesn't like her, they're jealous. Sounds familiar.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I saw that! JEALOUS.

She said people were jealous and people would try to sabotage. While I have no doubt that sometimes this happens, not every single person who dislikes you, disagrees with you, doesn't like your language or your jokes, or is causing problems for you is "jealous."

In fact I'm guessing a great many people wouldn't want to be in her shoes, and stuff like this is exactly why. Not everyone wants to be CNN.com's top story and they think about this when declining to pursue a public life. A mistake like this as a private person is almost always easier to recover from. But she's a public figure, and there just aren't any missteps allowed.

Since this is a virtual reception we will all stay 2.8 miles away from each other the entire night while being in the same virtual venue. Its a Solstice Mystery!
Almost ten pm eastern time. The No BS Brass Band is striking up New Orleans style jazzy music. Here come the parents and grandparents of the bridal couple down the 2.8 meter wide aisle! There is the groom, I still didn't catch his name, but he looks like a pool boy who has been to one of our parties before! Shhh,, don't tell Stephanie. And here is the bride accompanied by a vaguely fatherish figure.
Judge Judy presiding. Nancy Grace lost the arm wrestle. Nancy will do a reading about the importance of being fruitful then she us gonna talk about her twins and how she almost died and then she will cry. Bless Andy Cohen, he just stood up and told her to give it a rest!

Meagler said...

DPSL #633 from the previous post! great catch about Jamie and her dog. How do you find these things???

That would have been from a few years ago. For some who wondered why Kate would never have met this dog before, Jamie likely always came to kate's house.

I also agree what a bad connection to now have been made between kate's likely not so accurate bog, and the training this professional did. Wonder if we will see any kind of retraction.

If she didnt want Jamie to be identified, she shopuldnt have given so many identifiers...dog.. breed.. and name!

Also, to my neighbors, my prayers are with you! 160 millimeters of rain in 48 hours with more to come in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada area. Flash flooding and the largest Canadian weather related disaster in history. Four now presumed dead. This water will also be making its way into the United states at some point. Montana may also see some flooding!

The weather we are seeing lately in Canada and the tornadoes in the United States is just so devastating! Its unfathomable!

Some of the comments are funny:

"Been up there so long....she's 70 years old now"

"I dont know I kicked her out ages ago & she keeps coming back"

"it's really 2.8 miles. I went driving around looking for her house but there weren't any houses with lights on so I didn't stop. There are only 7 houses that close to me and I know who lives in 5 of them so it is pretty easy to figure out which one it is."

"She better not be. She just moved in with me."

"So, I must ask, can you tell what my speed is AND where I am at any point in time? I must know."

And an excerpt from a letter (snark) to "Stephanie:"

"And as for any 'romantic interest' you may have in me, these days I'm like a dog that chases cars. I can run and chase them no problem. But if one day I catch one, what the hell would I do with it?

So please curtail your online harassment of me. "

s said...

Joy by name and Joy by nature, I'm on my way. Save me some sangria. Although I have never met or even seen Stephanie I wish the happy couple all the best.

On the subject of weddings, I would like the opinions of some of the wise women here. Recently there has been a story in the news about a bride who berated a guest over their choice of wedding present. Apparently money was the preferred gift. I have noticed this a lot myself: guests are expected to give a cash gift equivalent to the amount that their presence costs. For example if the cost per plate is 100$, the gift should be 200$ per couple.

I think guests should give what they can afford and if brides and grooms cannot afford lavish expensive weddings they shouldn't have them and expect others to pay for them.

Weddings have become fund raisers rather than occasions to celebrate a joyful day.

I do know some cultures expect the cash, but I absolutely abhor this custom. I would like other viewpoints (but really I just want validation of my own). LOL

Layla said...

There was some discussion on the last thread about TLC paying Jamie and Ashley for the RV episode, yet Kate referred to them as paid help. If Kate being on the show is "work", then aren't Jamie and Ashley also working when they are on-camera? And shouldn't they also be paid for it? But Kate obviously didn't care what anyone else was being paid to do. She expected them to wait on her hand and foot.
Remember when she was loading up the RV and told the crew that it's time to "stop playing we're filming a TV show" and do some real work, because she's really done? They were doing their jobs--filming a show. Their jobs were not to cater to her. But to Kate, she is the only one working, and everyone else is just playing. The kids were just playing in front of the cameras. The crew was just playing. And, apparently, so were Jamie and Ashley. J and A were filming, too, plus taking care of the kids while Kate was having her hair and makeup done, or sneaked off with Steve for hours to--ahem--buy chicken. When Kate was cooking chicken over the fire, and bitching non-stop about it, J and A were amusing 11 kids. But to Kate, sitting there in her chair and letting the chicken burn, nobody is working but her.
I really hope that being dumped by TLC and losing everything they provided her is teaching Kate a lesson. Other people have work to do, too. They are not put on this Earth to wait on her. Nobody owes her anything. Yes, she had sextuplets. That was her choice, and she is responsible for them. She is not entitled to money or fame or help because of that choice. The RV episode served to show us that Kate really needed an attitude adjustment. Let's hope she got it.

Wow, just read this story this morning. Let's see what comes to mind... tacky, entitled, ungrateful, BULLY, immature, bitter.
I can say that these 2 women deserve one another and I truly think what the wedding guests should keep in mind is, thank God it's not you. What miserable, sour and joyless people. I'd hate to have to go through life with that chip on my shoulder.
At first I'd be offended by the bridezillas from Hell, but then I'd feel pity, and move on.
Reminds me of a unique wedding present DH and I received. Another couple gave us several bottles of wine in a straw-filled wood crate. Apparently, California Cabs were spectacular in the years just prior, and we got 3-4 bottles, and lined up at the end of these amazing wines was a bottle of Wild Irish Rose with a Post-It that read, "drink very cold, or not at all".
Brilliant.

Layla I agree. In her mind not only is no job more important as doing exactly what she wants you to do at that moment, but I don't think she even sees other people as doing a job. To her a sound person is not doing all the various checks and rechecks and monitoring sound does. Rather in her mind, a sound person is just "standing there" not "helping." We have proof of this when she was complaining in her journal that the sound person was in her garage and it ticked her off. I am betting a million bucks the sound person was looking for a quiet place to check something with sound. However this thought never even crosses her brain. Same with her nanny. There was no value in Ashley playing with the kids, staving off boredom for them, keeping them happy for the cameras, keeping them corralled. Rather Ashley was just playing and having fun. I can assure Kate it is hard work to travel as a nanny like that and even if you are doing a good job putting on a front of total fun and happiness, inwardly you are likely exhausted. Besides I bet it Ashley held back on the fun, Kate would complain she wasn't entertaining the kids. Ashley was stuck. It all goes to just the complete lack of awareness. A completely self centered world view.

S I agree with you that I think you should bring what you can afford to a wedding. You know what, even if that's just a card. I think it's awful to expect things of people like that. These days with people so spread out you're also asking people to pay for a hotel and travel. Weddings have gotten out of control lately.

It's been interesting one of the blogs I follow rotates writers. And the current writer is a single mom with ex-husband problems. She has been complaining a lot about her ex and it's gotten worse, and she's been doing petty things like refusing to give him information he needs for the kids when she feels he's "wronged" her and she's been complaining for months about a vacation he wants to take with the kids (how dare he!). Wouldn't you know it, some of the readers, who are normally very kind (I've followed this blog for years), have started to lose it on her, calling her petty and telling her she's being a jerk.

This morning my feed burner had a post from her saying she was leaving the blog because the comments were really getting to her. She said she will NOT tolerate anyone telling her that she is the problem in this ex-relationship.

Sadly, I think this is exactly what she needed to hear. She sounds like a nice person who is slowly getting sucked down the path of parental alienation and I think readers were trying to call her out on it. Besides she didn't have to share anything about her ex, this is not a divorce blog. Anyway, in a way I'm glad to know that other people saw what I saw and that other people see this bitterness as a problem, but I'm also sad for her and her kids and hope she can find peace with this man.

JoyinVirginia said...

Hi s, hope you enjoyed the virtual reception for our nonexistent bride and groom. I agree with you and Miss Manners about weddings. Couples and families should plan the wedding they can afford, and guests should be invited because their presence will be meaningful to the couple and/or family.
I have been to weddings that took place at church with a reception in the church hall and most of the food made by the bride s relatives. I have been to weddings with a photo booth, special lighting, elaborate catering at a ballroom, and open bar. You have fun because of the people there. You want to share the happiness of the couple and their families. You give a gift that is meaningful.
My mil has very limited income. She gives a modest gift to the grandchildren for all occasions. That's what she can afford. No one is leaving her off the guest list for weddings because she can't ” cover her plate” our give a large monetary gift. She doesn't have it to give. The grandchildren love her anyway.

Wow, Kate actually made a plug for her cookbook yesterday! I thought that was odd--she doesn't promote anything, as we all know. but looking at Novelrank this morning, she only has 203 total pre-orders. That's in the US, Canada, and the UK combined. Of course, the book is also available on Barnes and Noble, but they didn't have it available for order at first, so the first rush of people had to order from Amazon. Plus, B&N just isn't as big as Amazon. But let's be generous and give her 400 total pre-orders. In 3 months. Yikes! If I were Kate, I'd be panicked. Where are all the thousands of people she claimed were waiting for her cookbook? She publicly claimed thousands, but if this book comes out and only a few hundred sell (the numbers are already slowing), then this could be a huge public humiliation for her. It shows how big her real audience is. Most people can afford a cookbook, if they really want one. So, why wouldn't Kate's legions of fans all buy them? Many of the fans on Twitter claim to have bought multiple copies. If so, then how many fans does she really have?
Kate can play with the counter on her website all she wants, but if anyone in show business wants to see if she is really marketable, well, the real numbers don't lie. She couldn't maintain the interest of even a million viewers on her last show. They only watched when there wasn't anything better on TV. IJWYTK only sold 11,000 copies. And now this cookbook may not even sell 1,000 copies. There are the numbers, ugly as they might be. I foresee cases of unsold cookbooks sitting in Kate's basement, joining the cases of unsold copies of her other books and DVDs that are already there. I foresee a garage sale in her future.

I think it's creepy to think of someone getting joy out of it. BUT, if you have had formal dog training, all the more reason to recognize a problem here.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

It doesn't surprise me that she would tease a dog. She probably gave no thought that you don't do this to an animal. You just don't. She thought it was cute and funny and would make good blog fodder. That she chose to actually write about it, thus admitting how really clueless she is about the treatment of pets is unbelievable. She just doesn't THINK!

My 3 dogs are barkers. They feel that it is their job to WARN us in the most persistent way when someone has arrived. We have worked with them to train them to relax once we have been made aware of the "burglars". We praise, give treats and have always socialized our animals.

If any friend of ours decided to prank or tease our dogs, they would be stopped immediately. We probably wouldn't even keep friends who thought it was funny to upset our animals.

PS: I really wouldn't want friends who choose to talk in a Scooby Do voice either. Maybe I am just too picky!

Wow, Kate actually made a plug for her cookbook yesterday! I thought that was odd--she doesn't promote anything, as we all know. but looking at Novelrank this morning, she only has 203 total pre-orders. That's in the US, Canada, and the UK combined.... But let's be generous and give her 400 total pre-orders. In 3 months. Yikes! If I were Kate, I'd be panicked.

Many of the fans on Twitter claim to have bought multiple copies. If so, then how many fans does she really have?
------------------------
And don't you also think that Kate herself is ordering her own book too? I think every few days, Kate herself places orders to try to show there is an interest in her cookbook when none exists.

It just makes sense because it is known that Kate has stockpiles of her other books in her basement. She pulls them out to try to sell or give away anytime she gets invited to appear (like the Zumba fundraiser when she accepted all the gifts for her so-called no-fee appearance).

We all know the few hundred pre-orders for her book already include MULTIPLE purchases by a few fans but I really believe that number also includes Kate buying them for herself.

Kate needs to get real and move on from her delusion that she is still marketable.

Kate also thought it was a great anecdote to relate the story of her puppies chewing their way out of a cage. I think, to make matters worse, that 2 dogs were sharing a crate. WTF?

Thanks for the Paula Deen quote up there. I was looking for the exact quote about the wedding. It's hard to fathom in this day and age.
I think sometimes, well, probably many times, when people suddenly get wealth and power, they think they're invincible. Like "yeah, what are you doing to do about it?"

Ours too. It is probably up there in the top 3 problems that people have. To get the dog to the point where they are calm with knocking and entering is a VERY BIG DEAL.
My 2 larger dogs bark like crazy and we have gaits set up to keep them back. It takes minutes sometimes for me to get the dogs squared away so I can open the door peacefully.
At other times, when I get annoying solicitors wanting to sell me something, I let the barking go unchecked to they either go away, or give me a reason to say "sorry, can't do this now!".

Anonymous said...

Interestingly enough, I've been to a few weddings where it's been a ceremony followed by cake, punch and some finger food in the church fellowship hall lately. It's been a nice change of pace.

I think weddings should be a time of celebration with family and friends and you have one based on what you can afford, just like any party you might throw. People marry later in life now and don't need the housewares and appliances they once did.

I like weddings as well where the couple ask people to make a donation to a charity in lieu of gifts.

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

That's what makes me want to bang my head against the wall. First of all, she's too dumb to know that you don't do this to a dog, and she just proves how stupid she is when she writes about it.

I wonder about how her brain is wired. No snark here. I really do. Is she stunted at a middle school level, or is there some chemical imbalance or other mental issue that just doesn't allow her to carry on the reasoning process that one would consider "normal." I really don't believe that some of these idiotic things she does is because she's mean, nasty and vindictive. I think that there's an organic cause for it. Or maybe I just have a hard time believing that anyone could be such a witch.

TLC stinks said...

ITA about ringing the doorbell. She is immature and totally unaware. I got to wonder about Jamie, too.

We saw on the show that Kate has a cruel streak. She keeps trying to change that impression, but then she just sticks her mouth in her mouth time and time again either on Twitter or blogging. Money doesn't buy you class nor common sense.

Also, ITA on the wedding discussion. If someone invited me to a wedding and said cash only, I'd not go. That is greedy. I've heard of weddings where you are asked to contribute money for the honeymoon. I had a very small wedding. The solution is to do what you can afford and stop worrying about what other people think. It's a celebration, not a shakedown.

Her writing samples on her bog aren't doing her any favors either. If her cookbook is filled with family vignettes (as I suspect) as opposed to strictly recipes,her plebeian, mundane writing style is enough to turn off any prospective buyers.

Yes, it is mentioned that her family traditions and anecdotes etc comprise part of the cookbook. You know, those 'typical traditions' and 'rare' treats' that are mainly lies from TLC days and recent bogs.

In addition to the Jon-bashers and those who make inane comments ("do your kids like summer brake (sic)" and "you're (sic) kids are growing up"), and those who "miss her desperately" (the charity lady), she has the occasional "I Love you madly -- please get a new show" tweeters, as well as a couple of die-hard "haters" who just won't give it up. In my opinion, they're just as addicted as the sheeple in keeping the Twitter war alive.

She's a fake like many others. Few can live up to the image the public creates. The pressure must be enormous. Yet another reason not to be famous. There are plenty of pressures in private life alone.

Nancy!
I am glad you are safe, and with the stories of people driving thru what they thought would be a "bit of water" and then having their vehicles lifted up and taken into the Elbow river, it is only by grace that more people have not been found dead or missing!

MY city was in the flood zone for this spring but it was not as bad as it good have been. However, we were affected in the fall of 2010 of a big storm with sewer backup, and I know how not having access to our basement for 1 year affected us, so I can only begin to imagine the devastation people who have lost their homes and everything but the clothes on their back, are feeling right now.

But Alberta is STRONG and will rise to the challenge. You all make tough look like a walk in the park.

The picture of the Fire Man carrying the older woman has gone viral. I hope he doesnt end up having issues. That picture reminded me of the picture of the rescuer of baby Jessica who was rescued from the well many years ago. he struggled with the instant fame.

Take Care!

I would think someone planning to sell a cookbook would be very diligent about only tweeting pictures of food that looks truly appetizing.

I used to play a game with our dog. I would sneak out of the room and go hide in a closet or the shower and then call him. He had no idea where I was, but I would keep calling him.
He always found me within a few minutes, there were lots of Good Boys! and then one-on-one play time. The next day I would sneak out of the room and go hide.... I don't think he got anxious, at least I sure hope not. He seemed to like it. But I think it's a whole different game than what Kate and Jamie were doing with Kisa. I found that to be appallingly mean.

Children First said...

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

But here's the thing. The ones who will buy her cookbook are sheeple. They don't know the difference between food that looks appetizing, and food that looks like dog food on a plate. These are the needy ones who want a recipe for home-made pizza, or directions how to freeze cookies. They worship her, and to them, any photos of food are wonderful and they want to make the same thing!

True. But you put out a cookbook hoping that more than your friends will buy it. You want it to reach a larger audience. Tweeting pictures of a luscious chicken pot pie, or a
lovely Dutch Apple Pie will lure in more potential buyers. You have to have a wider audience in mind than just your own little circle. I really dislike Paula Deen, but I saw one of her dishes hot out of the oven on a TV
show and I wanted to go get a fork and dig in. So, I bought her cookbook. I still dislike Paula Deen but I have her cookbook.

This person tweeted in reply to Kate's tweet to go to her website to see pictures of the kids. She must have clicked on the tab "News & Events", which still has the post about Kate going to the Australian Zoo for Steve Irwin Day, which actually happened back in November 2011.

In that post Kate didn't mention the year, so one would assume it was current. Another way she misleads her fans.

The only reason Kate responded to Milo's tweet was it gave her an opportunity to bash men!!

" You saying men are like dogs?"

That is exactly what Kate thinks about men...except when she needs them to do something manly-ish for her that she cant do because she might break a nail!

Kate has never said anything to Ms goody abuot her tweets so obviously Kate has no concerns about what her kids will soemday see .

I will always recall that time when Kate was videoed walking past a bunch of models dressed as brides, she made the comment saying. " never get married"....

I never realized it, but he's a lot like Kate because it's all about HIM! The avatar is himself making his growler face.

That made me so sad.
I've been divorced and it wasn't pretty and I had trust issues after, but never bile and vitriol like Kate. I would never advise anyone to never get married, my God.
Kate was in one of her NYC manic modes and she was doing up fronts (?) for her new show. The "brides" were there to present "Say Yes To The Dress" and Kate walked by asking if any were really married in real life. They all said, "no" and she told them "good, keep it that way" with a big thumbs up and shit eating grin.
Men hate that and they can suss it out at 500 paces. They know when a woman has contempt for men, and there's nothing that turns a guy off more than to be send the message that he's simply not necessary, ineffectual and all together disposable.

Gee...I wonder if it was delicious!

Does she ever make anything that isn't delish or yum? Wonder why she didn't tweet a picture.

Meagler said...

Chicken and veggie casserole? Uh thats a lazy day/chef recipe.

Tell me something you make that doesnt involve a small amount of chopping and then throwing everything into a dish with some cream, et al.

So teenagerish first recipes kind of stuff. THATS what you should do Kate, make a cookbook for the BEGINNING cook, and aim it at tweens!

Meagler said...

I wonder if the reason Kate posts so many pictures of her pizza ( which doesnt look very appetizing to me. I make my own pizza too, so I know what it CAN look like) is because she believes she is the only one who makes it from scratch?

Everyone else always orders take out, dont they???

Congrats Kirkland. I hope you really enjoy it. I'm not a camping "purist" - roughing it in a cabin has become my style. Tents were
great in my younger days, though.

Sandi said...

Kate is always posting pics of her "homemade" pizza. It's always two pizzas and taken at different areas of her kitchen. I do believe they are the same pizzas and she took different shots of them. Some on the counter and some in the oven. One is always burnt. I could be wrong, but knowing Kate!

OrangeCrusher1 said...

Everytime she uses the word casserole, I see a dish of leftovers, not everything 'fresh' in the fridge,held together with cans of beans, soup, all laced with cheese. Fresh you grill, steam, saute. So delish, and no leftovers? Uh, doubt that too.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Do most people even eat casseroles anymore? You rarely see such recipes and I don't see them much except at church pot lucks, even then they're becoming more rare. I have a feeling given they are so often high calorie, they've fallen out of fashion. Sales have been falling for Campbell's cream of mushroom and other similar building block basics of the dish. Would it really be that much extra work to maybe prepare the veggies steamed on the side instead of mushed up in a casserole drowned in cheese?

OrangeCrusher1 said...

Actually most young kids I know are highly suspicious of casseroles, mac 'n cheese being an exception. They do not like seeing food all glumped together. Kate is, at heart, a church potluck cooker, save her own rabbit food meals lightly spraye with chemicals.

Melissa NV said...

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Adults, not so much. But maybe the kids like casseroles. I would think it would be preferable to her sloppy Cacciatore and undercooked grilled chicken.
No @Chipotle tonight?

Tucker's Mom said...

Casseroles are an easy way to feed a crowd, or have lots of leftovers. Nothing wrong with it, but it's a heat an eat. No skills or technique needed. I'm not knocking them. I make them occasionally and tonight, I'd argue that my jambalaya would probably qualify. I also adore tuna noodle casserole from time to time. There's something so comforting about it.
But, it's far from ambitious and I don't think I could claim to put any special twist on it, or that it's so, so special!!!!!!!!!
As Admin eluded to, it takes a lot more work and skill to make separate components that marry on a dish than to make a casserole.
I think certain areas of the country favor casseroles made with canned soup mixes. Maybe once I'll make a "hot dish" with tater tots on top!
