No thanks!

TFW says her TLC contract is at its very, very end and that interest for a new show is huge. Okay, then, she should be announcing a new show any day now, right? She can negotiate the new contract with a new network, and sign the day after the old TLC contract ends. That should be any day, now. I'll give her til Christmas. If there's no new show by then, I call BS on her "interest is huge" story.

How pathetic that she constantly feels she has to put it out there that she and her kids want another reality show. Guess they're not knocking her door down with offers. How transparent can she be?

Lalalalala said...

Isn't that what she wore the last time she was on Katie??

localyocul said...

A fan got a book signed by the kids? Remember the day her books came Gladys said she should play book signing and she said she already had? She made those kids sign books to sell!! Shell never stop exploiting them.

I just checked. That IS what she wore last time. Weird...

Marie said...

I'm sorry, but a Kate Gosselin reality show would be so boring . . . unless of course they could sign up Milo! Make Milo the behind the fence, nosy neighbor that you never really see. Kind of creepyish. Is it a man or is it a woman . . . hmmm. That would make it somewhat interesting. Kate would be trying to dodge Milo as she goes to the grocery store or out running.

I think now we know that Uncle Steve was the pizza maker and the Honey Do list person Kate tweeted about. So a married man does some other woman's fix-it list and cooks for her family. He was also there for the millions of Easter eggs Kate supposedly filled (some sharp eyed poster noted the sneakers photographed had been previously worn by Steve in another photograph).

He is there for holidays, trips, repairs, business partner, boob sizer, etc. Sounds like a boyfriend to me. I am back on board that the relationship has been covert for years for image. After all, she can't be portrayed as a home wrecker. It would ruin everything!

Vanessa said...

God, she can't even do a quick little fluff piece without mumbling, rolling her eyes or have a coherent thought go from her brain to her mouth?
Also stop looking at the camera and stop flapping your hands. She is sooo uncomfortable it makes the viewer uncomfortable.Someone should show these last few interviews, "or whatever" to Barbara Walters.

You're so smart, yes that 's what she did!

So about 50 people showed up for TFMJG's book signing and it lasted about 25 minutes. That's 30 seconds per person. How generous of her! I've been to many book signings, and helped out with a few, and I've NEVER been to one that only lasted 25 minutes. The ones I've helped with were either scheduled for one hour with an option for the second hour, or were scheduled for 2 hours. The shortest one I've attended lasted for a little over an hour, but the author was elderly, not feeling well, and was just unable to last any longer. Most authors stick it out to the bitter end, even if there are no fans there.

========

Yes, yes, yes to everything you said, Bitchy Pants! 25 minutes is unheard of, and it's polite to stay even if it's dead.

The book store has advertised the author's event. If the author leaves even 5 minutes early, someone like Jennifer the tweeter (who was so excited to meet Kate) may come in. Then both author and store look bad, and the store has either an angry or disappointed customer on its hands.

To be fair to Kate, I never saw an end time advertised (that may have been deliberate on Kate's part so she could bail when she chose)--but an hour is a bare minimum and a courtesy.

"Take your books. They're not selling" --> I've never seen a B&N do that, either. That's akin to, "Take your *** and get out!" Usually the B&Ns keep the books on hand for a few days for those who missed the signing. The store will be very polite and say, "Oh, I'm sure the rest of these will sell in the next few days," even if that probably won't happen. It just makes everyone feel better about the low sales--saves face for the store (who may feel they didn't advertise enough) and the author (who was unable to draw them in).

B&N then quietly ships what's left back to the publisher a few days later. Why are they giving the books back to Kate unless those books are from Kate's own stash? Someone pulled a favor for Kate, getting her in there if she brought her own books. B&N has a certain way of doing things. I'm wagering someone called the store on Kate's behalf and talked her up--the Today Show, ET, Katie Couric--and promised a big turnout. Oops. Remember HCI's big plug about all of Kate's "millions" of fans based on the divorce show.

The curt comment about taking those books with her makes it sound like she ticked off someone who works there.

Vanessa said...

Yes, yes, yes to everything you said, Bitchy Pants! 25 minutes is unheard of, and it's polite to stay even if it's dead.
************************************************************************************

Couldn't she just mingle with her fans, just chat? Surely she could handle 15 people? bahhahahahaha

Dmasy said...

TFW keeps reminding us that the kids are all lined up for wanting another reality show. She asked them. They responded, in unison, that they choose TV for their future.

This is the ONE instance her children are allowed to have an opinion.

They can't enter the kitchen one minute early in the morning. They can't choose to fill their own plates. They must adhere to a gender influenced chore chart. "Penalty of severeness" hangs over the heads daily.

The 6 still aren't allowed to drink out of a regular glass -- check the Today video.

The children's freedoms is strictly controlled. Except -- they are able to make a life altering decision about being sold for the highest dollar.

Right.

Posted this on the last thread. It just reinforces to me just what Jon AND the kids have been going through and will continue to go through,

JoyinVirginia said...

TFMJG is just not very good at spontaneous rapid fire anything. when she was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen she had difficulty understanding the game they played.
The long hair is better than the weird short haircut she had. But the long straight hair seems dated now, definitely she could do with an updated hairdo.

Susantoyota said...

ROL can't get it right. Or maybe TFMJG doesn't care if they do since any publicity is good publicity. Love Shady K8ie's comment.

Layla said...

I believe the person who said there were only 15 people there for the signing. If there were 50 (30 seconds per person), you'd think she'd wait around for a few more to come in. But 15? That's embarrassing. She'd want to pack up and get out. No broom closet, just go!. And I can see B&N being ticked off and telling her to take her books with her if they were led to believe there was going to be a big turnout, and there were only 15 or so. Why should they get stuck with dealing with her unsold books? Let TFW deal with it, it's her problem.

A couple days ago I was at the local Books A Million. Shelves and shelves of cookbooks, but none of TFW's. I asked if they carried it, and the stock lady said no. Then she asked if I was interested in buying a copy. I said no way, and she smiled and said, "We only order the ones we think will sell". Funny how she wanted to make sure I'm not one of TFW's fans before she let the truth slip.

2 more days until the Baltimore Book Festival! I'll be there! I was thinking of taking pictures, but Steve might come after me.

Katykat said...

So for 15 piddly little books, she gave up putting her kids to bed, listening to their stories, etc. Bedtime is the most important/intimate time in my house. I would never put 15 piddly fans over this special time with my children. Never.

OrangeCrusher1 said...

I have never heard of the likes of this publicity for a book tour, and an "author", for a book that has sold, and is likely to sell, so few copies. While I truly think karma has come, the amount of attention this fame 'ho continues to wring out of the media is mind boggling. As for Katie Couric and Samantha Guthrie, I would almost feel embarrassed for them. But I cannot. Nor will I watch KG on any of these shows. It's pathetic.

Vanessa said...

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

Ok, really? Who is she in cahoots with there over at ROL? They're just as good as she is at warping the truth. If it was anyone but TFW I'd think there was an exchange of "favors" if you know what I mean...

NJGal51 said...

When TFW says that the interest in a new show is huge it's just her play on words again. What she's really saying is "My interest I. Getting a new reality show is Hugh. I've got tons of ideas on how to exploit my 8 and if you don't want them because they're not cute toddlers any more then look at MEMEME! I'm the star in the family anyway.

I don't think that she realizes that the salary she was getting at the end of her TLC run was a fluke and she won't command that salary again. Also, no network is going to send her family on all those elaborate trips. That's not reality. Let's see, reality tv that hasn't been done to death. A divorced mom with a lot of kids dating a divorced dad wit a lot of kids. Boring! A cooking show? Nope, Sandra Lee has the corner on cooking from boxes, cans, etc. and I doubt that TFW would be able to carry off preparing food and talking on camera for any length of time. Talk show host? Nope, not unless she's talking to herself in a mirror. Her eyes only come to life when talking about herself otherwise all you see is that soulless shark stare.

BTY - Is there a clip or something at the top of this thread? I'm not getting anything but blank space on the iPad.

You are within your rights to take a picture or two. If he touches you or your camera, you can take action. I'd normally not say anything like that, but I'm tired of them overstepping their bounds. YMMV :)

Bitchy Pants said...

Maybe the books B&N told TFMJG to take with her are the ones the kids had signed? Can a bookstore return books to the publisher if the author has already signed them, VirginiaPenMom ? Of course, if the kids signed them, then they weren't the store's books to begin with, they were TFMJG's, unless the kids were there with her. I haven't seen anything to indicate that they were.

Can someone fill me in on Kate taking off with her books? In a huff or was there some tension?

That IS the same clip from last time she was on (10/12). Same exact questions. There's no way she'd wear the same thing. I picture her clothes closet organized with tags by TV appearance.

As a client, you can certainly ask your attorney questions or ask to be very involved in your case, but a good attorney will tell their client, "I'm the boss. I make the legal decisions, not you." In the legal profession, it's called "client control."
-----
-----

I've never had an attorney who said that to me. It's mostly, "Here's the deal. Here's where we are, and it's your decision. You tell me what you want to do." They ADVISE, and if they disagree with my decision, they will tell me so and why, but I've never been told that they are the boss and I need to do as they say.

I don't think I've ever been to any other book signing but from what I've heard most authors stay for hours and hours, making sure every fan gets time with them and every book is signed, and then mingling. Twenty-five minutes seems absurdly short. Like why even bother for 25 minutes short.

Could this mean that maybe the producers at Katie Couric thought better about having Kate on because of all the bad publicity lately? This is getting curiouser and curiouser. I guess we'll see.

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

Considering what a short time Kate stayed at the book signing, I'm wondering if the teen (who Milo tweeted telling her Milo say hi) made it there before Kate and Steve left with their cart full of unsold books. She was so excited yet she never tweeted that they met. Poor girl if, when she got there, Kate was already gone.

Anonymous said...

I was there at the Staten Island "book signing" last night as an observer and the twitter person was correct not the SI article(they did have a photographer there to take pics) It was a joke. B&N staffers were very nice to her and PB stood to the side while K8 greeted her "fans" She sold tops maybe 20 books. The line had about 25 people, some couples, some moms w/ young girls but not even close to 50(media hype) FTW came out of backroom at 7:05, signed til 7:40 then went back in room. No other fans came....and one staffer said back up books and roll poster, she wants to leave. B&N staffer informed Steve if certain about of books are not sold they are to be boxed up and returned to publisher, Steve seemed quite shocked and kept saying, really, didn't know that. FTW came back out took pic w/ Steve and staffer and she proceeded to cashier to settle up( I assume) So all in all it was a bust. To me it seems that this all about living in the past and getting a few days of travel and away from kids. FTW was in calm mood and Steve took care of the business...She is very thin, no butt what's ever, she had on her signature strappy high heels on w/leggings and a cream colored top(kinda bland outfit) Today night at that B&N is NJHW Melissa Gorga's signing and over heard they are getting extra staffing for that plus I see the posted the time of when to start lining up. Not a fan of HWs but just wanted to give you a comparison. FTW glory days are over but she can not accept and will spend all of the G8s money to relive it...I pray some can save them

It was just TFW and PB(Steve) last night..She was out the door by 8:14, mind you most of the time she and Steve were backroom w/ B&N staffer going in and out...

Well Milo, it's back down to 422. TFW needs to buy more books to stack in the basement.

Based on the anonymous post @40 it sounds more like the employee told TFW and RC that the books would be boxed up and sent back to the publisher rather than RCA and TFW taking the books back with them which sounds more reasonable.

BTW Milo not one person came up to FTW to bother her or take pic, only the few fans who bought her book that was in line.....No one else seemed to care or even noticed her,lol!!!!

TLC stinks said...

Thanks Anon for your observation. I totally believe it. She does not like to mingle with the commoners, never has and never will.

The book tour is just a front for the Jon Bashing Tour. ROL's story today is the biggest joke ever. Jon has laid low and obviously has no deal with any pap. On the flip side, Chris Watts has mysteriously reappeared to "catch" Kate at the grocery store.

I wonder if Jon's attorney can find out who ROL's exclusive "source" was. Kate is desparately trying to make herself look good and Jon look bad all to bolster her lawsuit. It is not working. She's pulled these tricks too many times in the past.

Would love to see some pictures snd more eye witness accounts.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Pioneer Woman and the Goopster have both beat her in cookbooks and I wanna say Goopie's book has been out for ages.....yes, since April. A book on sourdough and another on home preserving also beat her. How many people are really buying obscure books like that?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Radar also keeps saying the pap plans to file a police report. I guess they didn't see that the pap already tried that and was told no charges would be filed because she was the one trespassing, according to a poster here practically all the way up to his front door, wow.

Anonymous said...

The twitter person was kinda of correct, a stock person did put all books are a cart and took them off the floor(about 100) so either they took them or shipped them back to McMansion or publish doesn't matter...the signing of the crookbook was a BIG BUST!!!!! Hope someone can get to the NJ signing tonight to compare...

Jane said...

Anon - 42 FTW came back out took pic w/ Steve and staffer and she proceeded to cashier to settle up( I assume)

Thanks for your comprehensive report!

I'm surprised that she settled up with the cashier. Does this mean an author (and I use the term lightly when referring to Kate) is paid on the spot for books sold? Maybe some of our real authors can enlighten us :)

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

She left to her utility closet at about 7:20 at the Santa Monica book signing. Everyone seemed very taken aback by it and there was a lot of muttering and for some of the sheeple disappointed faces. At that point the BN staff were saying they didn't even know if she was coming back, they had not heard. I felt so bad for her fans standing there books unsigned, including a little boy with a walking stick sight impaired people use. I felt like she was spitting in the faces of her fans. Thankfully she came back, but it sure looked like she might have taken off right there and then. Later on Kate's World we saw Steve talking her off the ledge and getting her back out there. I knew right there and then she doesn't care about the fans one bit, not even a disabled fan.

I know that Katie C's show comes on early in several areas. I've seen it on as early as 9 in the south. Have seen no comments on it yet. Wonder if anyone even watches that show much anymore. I've never watched it myself.

This makes sense. It seems to me that normally they have about 5-6 copies on the shelves of most books. For a book signing, they would need to bring in several hundred if not more. If a signing doesn't get through all the extra copies, they would have to go somewhere. I just thought they would go back to BN and maybe be forwarded to the next signing. Unless maybe Kate offered to bring them herself. I think this is neither here nor there, other than to say they had too many books on hand for the crowd there. But it's better to have too many than run out, which has happened I've heard.

Exactly what I think. Not only reasonable, but normal. I mean I would hope most signings would have extra books at the end of the night. It would be awful to have someone waiting in line all that time only for BN to run out.

I wonder if Kate will be following Teresa Guidice's footsteps in other ways too!

Who remembers waaaay back when she was going to the Emmy's and was gushing about how she hoped she'd be able to meet George Clooney? Now all of a sudden it's, "I'm not George Clooney'ish, sorry"....??????

And, she is way to sickly freakishly skinny. It's makes her looks so severe and harsh and old. She doesn't look healthy AT ALL. Does she think she'll get back on tv if she's skinny enough or something?
This woman makes my head spin.

Its like Jodi Arias, with client control. The lawyers do what they can with the case. But when they want out because they KNOW they are losing the battle ,the client has them roped into the case.

&&&

Yes that's because she had public defenders, I think. Public defenders can't just walk away from a case unless there's either some kind of threat, or a few other very rare circumstances like a complete breakdown in your relationship. So if you've got a client going rogue and refusing to do what you say, there's nothing you can do about it but keep ploding along. The profession is actually not a good one for control freaks, even though a lot of people think it attracts those kind of people. Because quite frankly a lot of it is completely out of the attorney's control. You can only give the advise you can give--after that it's really in the client's control what happens. I've heard a lot of attorney say, this is in your hands now. I'd laid the path for you what to do, and if you do what I say this likely will turn out a certain way.

I posted on the other thread this morning but didn't realize there was a new thread and it didn't transfer. I posted my review on Amazon for those that want to read it. About what I read in another thread I had to comment. Kate claims to make 19" pizzas. Well, a standard oven will not hold a pizza that size. It's too big. Most people have standard ovens. Anyway check out my review!

I just read PW's post about going into schools with her book about her dog Charlie. She's so passionate about this (or, really really good at faking it.) She was taking pics with all the students and the teachers, marveling at how dedicated the teachers are, and laughing at the kids' cute questions, and overall having a blast. And, she home schools, so it's nice to see her having such an appreciation for traditional schools too. She loves that dog and does all the typical things that REAL dog lovers do (putting funny sunglasses on him and taking pics, catching him reclining in a funny position and taking pics, etc etc etc etc).

The glaring difference I've noticed between PW and TFW when it comes to these public events is that PW is sincerely passionate about it. She likes meeting new people, she likes learning about new places, she can make small talk, she likes making strangers happy. Her face lights up and radiates at such events. She is either sincerely happy to do this, or one darn good actress.

TFW just doesn't seem to LIKE that kind of thing. She's out of there or in a utility closet before the hour is up. And the thing is, that's fine. I wouldn't like it either. Actually, it would be my worst nightmare to be forced to mingle and talk to strangers at a book signing. But then if you clearly hate doing this kind of thing why be a celebrity? Promotion and mingling with the masses these days makes up so much of what being a celeb is. If that's not what you like why are you doing it??

From one of the Amazon reviews...."But gosh really I bought the book to see the children."

How sad. Why would you get your jollies staring at someone else's kids?
Leave them alone. Let them have some privacy. Let them enjoy their childhood without random strangers staring at them. Poor kids.

Silimom said...

Having never had a breast implant, I don't know but if you have your breasts augmented to say a C cup, if you lost a lot of weight wouldn't it make your breasts stand out more or seem bigger, just by virtue of the fact that you wouldn't be really losing weight in your chest because of the implants? I guess I'm just saying she didn't necessarily have another boob job, she might just be so skinny her breasts seem larger. Again, not knowing much about breast implants, I wouldn't know.

Years ago, when I was making the rounds with my childrens books, I loved, loved visiting schools. The kids always had such great energy and were a joy to be with. They were interested and interesting, and had great questions. I think I learned more from them then they learned from me. I remember feeling overwhelmed when days after a visit, I would receive thank you cards and notes and drawings from classrooms of kids. It always made me feel like maybe my words had a positive impact on someone else.

Kate will never know the joy of feeling like you have made someone else happy. She is too busy focusing on making herself happy.

Layla said...

Not so long ago, a poster here wrote about the Multiple Blessings book. It was a "best-seller", but TFW wrote 500 copies (I think that was the number) into each of her speaking contracts, inflating the sales numbers and sticking the churches, conventions, etc with cases of books. Perhaps she brought along cases of books to B&N, thinking she'd stick the store with the extras, just like in the old days, and she (and Steve) didn't realize the store didn't have to keep them.The store told them to take their unsold books with them, and they didn't have any choice. I also wouldn't be surprised to find that, as a semi-self-published author, TFW paid for that huge first printing, and the money from book sales goes right back into her pocket. Hence her trip to the register to "settle up" at the end of the signing.

If TFW was thinking she'd pull her old MB tricks to unload piles of books on unsuspecting victims, she now knows she's wrong. The one who gets stuck this time is TFW. I'm curious to see whether she wrote a bunch of books into her appearance on Katie. Everyone in the audience gets a free copy! Whether they want them or not! Compliments of the Katie Show.

May said...

I don't think I've ever been to any other book signing but from what I've heard most authors stay for hours and hours, making sure every fan gets time with them and every book is signed, and then mingling. Twenty-five minutes seems absurdly short. Like why even bother for 25 minutes short.

************************
I have to say, I met Ann Rule at a book signing several years ago. The line was out the door. It was pouring rain and it didn't matter because people still waited. When I got up there she was absolutely delightful. She posed for photos, and the TV news was there...my mom and I were on the TV clip! Ann was so down to earth. Now that is what I expect at a "celebrity" book signing.

In addition, there was a short article in the Reading Eagle yesterday and the Robeson Township police department stated they would not be filing charges against Jon or the photographer. So take that, ROL.

Paper Plates Forever! Yay! said...

She's definitely had another boob job. She is going for that Kendra look. Skinny and very top heavy. Also, I was wondering why her mouth looked so different on the Today Show. First I thought it was more botox around her marionette lines but now I think it's because she has lost even more weight and her lips are starting to get thinner.

NJGal51 said...

I watched the cast of Breaking Bad on Conan and one thing that I found very interesting was when Brian Cranston said that he achieved the Heisenberg look for pictures by showing absolutely no emotion on his face. He had different people try it and it was kind of scary with the looks they achieved (before they started laughing). My point being is that's the look was what we see with TFW all the time. Absolutely no emotion on her face.

Yes, I posted that from RH's book. He also said that Beth wanted to go on the book tour with Kate but Kate wouldn't allow it because of course, she wanted ALL the glory. What a slap in the face. I guess that was the final straw for Beth.

Added to that, apparently TLC wanted to pay the Carsons for some of the filming that took place in their house, but like she did with Aunt Jodi, Kate put the kibosh on that idea too.

NJGal51 said...

Silimom - You'e right, if you've got an implant and you lose weight the implant looks bigger even though it's not because there's less of her. I can state this as fact becasue I've got an implant on one side due to BC and no matter whether I lose or gain weight it's always just there standing at attention. I'm glad you pointed that out becasue in an earlier post I said that maybe she'd gone back for more surgery. If she wanted them to look more proportinate with her body she'd have to have them removed and smaller ones put in.

I agree with you, I don't think that the anonymous poser (42) sounded rambling at all. I could be wrong but to me it sounded like someone who was there and was observing what was going on down to the fact of the employee explaining to PB that the unsold books would be boxed up and returned to the publisher.

I haven't read all the comments yet, so sorry if someone already posted this. There is an article in The Mail that has stills of Kate. There is a clear side shot of Kate, and WOWSER! Looks like beach balls strapped to her chest. I never comment on her appearance, but this is just so sad.

Layla, that's the only thing that makes sense to me. 50K in the first printing just doesn't make good business sense. Maybe VA Pen Mom can help, but I'd think that publishers are experienced at forecasting a book's potential numbers, and there's no way that 50K people want that book. Not even half of that.
So, if Kate fronted the money, it would just be in line with her tactics to proclaim her book as a "best seller". She's just not above deception-- just look at her never EVER interjecting that no, she did not write Multiple Blessings, Beth Carson did.
Nope, Kate sits back and smiles like a Cheshire Cat, taking in all the glory and praise for work she did not do.

LeeLee said...

Haven't caught up with all the comments and goings on, so forgive if I am rehashing already covered topics. PS- There are some VERY funny posters here. Lolling away at work.

So, after seeing pics on Daily Mail link, I have to say Kate's girls are growing and she is shrinking. I do not believe she eats the food she prepares (unless it's just going straight to her chest). As noted by so many others, all that sodium, cheese and canned/creamed soups would bloat her up. Not buying that she eats her own recipes. I believe she wrote about her diet before, and stated she eats a second salad or steamed fish for dinner. In fact, I also believe she tweeted pre-marathon that the kids were surprised to see her eating real food while in training. Anyone care to confirm or correct?

As to the #supershortbooksigning, what a baby for scooting out. The posted times were 5-7pm (per admin's thread on the book tour a few days ago). Stick it out for those caught in traffic, or those planning to come later thinking the crowd (cough) would have thinned out. My husband is in a band, not hugely popular, but with a great loyal following. When he does a show with low turnout, he always ends up having the best time. They make sure to give the people who did show up and buy thier tickets a fun night, and the low crowd can make for more of a party atmosphere. I know it's not the exact same thing, but the attitude should be the same. These people spent money and went out of their way- without a long line, she should take advantage and do a little Q&A, or a brief reading, or share a story or two related to the book. Selfish brat.

Hate to say this, because I know he likes his privacy, but I am enjoying the new pics of Jon. He's a little dishy, isn't he?


LeeLee said...

The more pics I see from yesterday the more I wonder, just how many good bras is she wearing?

Tucker's Mom said...

Sorry if this has been mentioned, but I just noted that Kate's book signing at B+N was in the children's section.
I don't know if this was the only open space (small store?) or if Kate's rebranding LIITM as a children's/Mommy book?

Thanks to Anon for the book signing report. Nothing seems fishy to me.
I'm glad someone will be at the Baltimore book show. Let's see just how chatty and food show host-like Kate really is.

I wondered that yesterday. It think it's because she was interviewed from the left, facing left, putting her right side to the camera. This is rare for Kate because her left side is her best side. Her mouth looks much better that way anyway.
Think back to her Kate + 8 confessional interviews-- she faced right.

All the time Mantracker and trusty sidekick Milo hot on their trail. (For nothing would provide her impetus to keep running more than a rabid fan) Yeah, I would watch that.

Kendra is truly a petite, small woman. She's thin, but not malnourished looking. I've never seen her look "skinny". She's just tiny.
Kate, on the other hand, isn't tiny. She's a naturally thin person and seemingly never fought being overweight, not including her pregnancy weight. Even then, I never saw her as big or fat. She was getting back in shape slowly and getting thinner slowly.
Kate's underweight for her frame now. She is damaging her health and putting herself at risk for diseases such as osteoporosis.
Her body is also looking beat from running without proper training, cross training and nutrition. It takes a toll and believe me, I know.
I had no ass and atrophied quads just like her, at one time. And like Kate, my running ran into a brick wall because I pushed too hard when banking miles and burning calories mattered most.

AuntieAnn said...

I just can't stop staring at her left eyebrow though. Down, eyebrow, down!

HA!HA!HA!

Now that I look again at her chest, I think she actually just hiked the girls up really high with that good push-up. They seem awfully close to her chin. Better than closer to her navel I guess. Then again her belly button is pretty high too. Maybe she's getting some kind of new treatment where they pull all the saggy skin up at the top of the head. Then they tie it off and snip the excess. That would explain the surprised look of eyebrows and the upright girls.

ok I'll stop now.

Yorkdale is a large upscale shopping mall (Armani, Ann Taylor, Ferragamo, Cartier, Rolex) but it is localed closer to the airport rather than more fashionable downtown Toronto where "real" celebrities usually appear when in town.

I agree she has a poor diet and she needs help.

I'm 5'1 and 115lb soaking wet I ran tack&feild in high school my coach made sure that his female runners had a good diet.

She just wants to be skinny no matter what and it's kind of sad that as a nurse and mother she can't do it the healthy way.

Jen said...

"So, if Kate fronted the money, it would just be in line with her tactics to proclaim her book as a "best seller".

First, publishers do estimate sales and come up with the first print run based on that. When I worked in publishing, there was rarely a first print run that large--the exception would be for huge celebrities (which Kate is not, no matter what she wants to believe).

Second, even if Kate herself paid for that print run, copies printed does not equal sales. So unless people are buying up all those copies, she cannot claim by any stretch of the imagination that it's a best seller. Those extra copies will eventually be remaindered.

Steve does not have the authority to touch you, your camera or anything else of yours. He can ask you not to take photographs, or not to take anymore, but that is it. So if you do attend, and you do snap a few shots - he cannot make you delete them.

If I were there, and Steve laid one hand on me, I would call for the store manager, ask them to call the police to the scene, and I'd ask to file a report against Steve. Steve uses bully tactics to get his way, and most people aren't sure whether he has the right or not. He does not. He is a private security guard (ha!), and has no legal authority over anyone who shows up. As long as you are being quiet, respectful, maintaining a proper distance - you are in a public place and you can take pictures if you want.

No Nick Fury, but we can hope for guest appearances. Even if you don't usually like scifi stuff, check it out. You can watch for free online. The dh and I have already decided to make this regular viewing. If you are an NCIS fan, I think you might really like Agents of SHIELD. Just check it out online.

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

I agree Silimom. I don't think she necessarily had another augmentation. About 6 or 7 years ago I put on a good deal of weight - which wasn't a bad thing because I was seriously underweight - and put on 40 lbs. Over the course of a year my cup size went from an A to a D, to Hubby's utter delight. With or without an augmentation weight loss and/or gain can seriously affect a woman's profile. But yeah, judging from the pics she appears to be too thin for those puppies. :P

BTW, I'm in the camp that actually likes the funky dress. I think it looks good on her. I still think she's a witch but I don't think she looks horrible. Lipstick on a pig and all that.

Millicent said...

rainbows and unicorns:
I should clarify that my statement about attorneys having client control stems from my direct work with attorneys handling personal injury and civil litigation cases. I cannot speak to attorneys who take criminal cases, divorce cases, etc.

My point being that an attorney who lets his or her client take charge of the case is not doing his/her client any favor. Most clients are not familiar with the legal process. So for example, if a client says "I don't want to have my deposition taken", that's not really an optional thing. If you are involved in a lawsuit, the other side has the right to take your deposition.

If you, as the client, say "I don't want to participate in the court-ordered mediation," again, that's not an option the client can choose. If the court orders the case to mediation, then to mediation it shall go.

If your attorney tells you, "don't talk about this case with anyone but me," and then you go to a party and start telling all sorts of details about your case, then later on an investigator hired by the other side speaks with other party goers and gets a lot of info from them - your attorney could well decide you are not worth their time and effort.

That is what I was speaking about. Also, arguing with your attorney is usually not a great idea. If you and your attorney are at logger-heads, then a parting of the ways is usually best.

I do agree with you that there are also many instances where a deal is on the table and your attorney gives you his/her advice on whether to take the deal, or counter offer, etc. In that case, of course the client gets a say. The attorney cannot force a client to accept a settlement or plea deal, they can merely advise on whether they think that is the best deal they are likely to get.

I would watch a Big Brother style reality show where Kate has to live with 6 of her biggest fans. I'd watch that.

Do you think they could round up six? LOL. I would definitely watch something like that. Kate, Milo, IrishFan, MsGoody. Would Kate even be able to last 10 minutes?

I have no problem with Kate trying to sell herself to TV execs for any show she does on her own. Just leave the kids out of it entirely. If some network exec is crazy enough to want Kate on her own, fantastic!

Formerly Duped said...

Isn't being interested in cooking and watching others eat while you don't partake a sign of an ED?

URL said...

What a joke. A book signing where she spent only a half hour with her few fans and the majority of time with Steve in some sort of closet. And then Steve was informed that the remainder of unsold books needed to be removed from the store. I wonder if Steve is still putting delusions of grandeur into her head at this point, provided he is being paid to do so. I personally don''t see her book signing at the NJ book store to be any different this evening. NJ doesn't care about her and most people probably don't even know who she is. IMO, this is just another failed book signing. But TFW has her alone time away from her kids and with Uncle Steve, her man. It appears to be all that matters to her.

And after seeing her recent videos, she's not nearly as attractive as she was two or three years ago. She's aged and is too thin. Her boobs look bigger because she's lost weight and when she first got the implants she had more weight on her and they were more in proportion to her body weight and frame. With the loss of weight, she appears top heavy and her face looks aged. Her hair and skin tone doesn't look healthy either. And her constant scowl just makes her look angry. Overall, it's not a good look.

I think so too Chef. As the rest of her shrinks her fake boobs do not so thr ratio incrases. In fact it would literally ibcrease her bust size

Silimom said...

It's kind of sad that Kate can't live a healthy life in many ways - physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.

I've been reading her cookbook and it just strikes me yet again how much time she wastes trying to be what she imagines a perfect person to be and repeatedly coming up short. Admin said her grasp on reality seems even more tenuous then usual and I'd have to agree.

If the contract with TLC is truly coming to an end now, rather than last year as we all thought, then it's highly probable that she really is in crisis/panic mode because as much as she claims that there are offers on the table, there probably aren't. I could be wrong and she could show up back on tv sometime next year, who knows? But I doubt it and I think she realizes that she's going to have to downsize or cut back and she's fighting it tooth and nail.

Sigh. I've also said those words before and she's still here so again only time will tell.

Thanks, Jen.
Oh gawd, I feel like TFW.. "I just don't get it!".

Silimom said...

So do you see what I mean about it not looking like a cookbook? It looks like a book. My husband pointed out that most cookbooks he's used to are either three ring binder types or rather big so they can lie flat and you can access the recipe as you're cooking. I have some WW cookbooks that size but they are paperbacks, not hardcovers.

Maybe it's normal, it just seemed strange to me.

2 more days until the Baltimore Book Festival! I'll be there! I was thinking of taking pictures, but Steve might come after me.

Steve does not have the authority to touch you, your camera or anything else of yours. He can ask you not to take photographs, or not to take anymore, but that is it. So if you do attend, and you do snap a few shots - he cannot make you delete them.
******
But, but, but.... he almost took a bullet for President Clinton!!
Seriously, he has misused whatever authority his position is perceived to have and has done it over and over again.
Kate thought nothing of sending Steve over to another RV to get some guy to delete his photos. Steve's also been reported to bar people from entering a public restroom when Kate was in there.
Heck, Jon even alluded to his bodyguard clearing out bathrooms so he could go alone (I'm guessing to protect from photos being taken, but still).
Steve harassed that Philly Chat guy at the Art Museum in Philly. He tried to block his photos, gave him a hard time and acted like he was so magnanimous when he "allowed" this Philly pap to snap some photos.

I think it's the smile. So plastic. So cheshire cat-like. She has that same frozen smile on every single photo. It never varies. It's like she has practiced in front of the mirror (or it's the only way she can smile because of the Botox).

White Organza said...

"The industry has been showing huge interest for a new Gosselin show." Well, maybe for TFW. Maybe. Just maybe. And most probably only for something like having fun putting TFW thru different kinds of sweet hells, like a diving show, a really, really, really badass "Survivors", or some sort of darwinian "survival oh the fittest" Big Brotheri-sh show. (By the way: Geaorgeclooney-ish? Really?! ) But I would doubt that producers are still interested in the kids. Not after what we saw on CWS. TFW thinks that those weirdly silent robotic kids standing in line to brush their teeth, sweeping chicken poop, presenting their plate for their portion of salty slop, etc., are cute and show how good a mother she is, but... no. Just no. They scare the heck out of most people. Way too much "Children of the corn-ish" That CSW show is just another of her bad PR moves that just backfired.

Watched Katie.
1. neck looks like it doesn't go with her face

3. Katie did not ask about lawsuit (though it looked as though the interview had been edited)
4. Katie said "he sees them every other weekend, right Kate"
5. Kate said she bites her tongue and keeps the peace (yeah right)
6. said she has 20 hours of help a week. Isn't that about how much they're home and not sleeping a week?
7. video of them at home: Kate dressed to the nines. Kids looked miserable when playing games. lots of arguing.

Jumping In said...

Just saw the Katie Couric segment with Kate. TFW seemed more relaxed and, dare I say, somewhat coherent. Katie threw out a few "tougher" questions, but overall, same old, same old.

When they did the piece from TFW's home, the kids looked both unhappy and uncomfortable. Katie certainly played up TFW's burden of raising 8 kids as a single parent.

I may have missed it, but I don't recall TFW begging for a new show which was refreshing. When Katie asked if she wanted to remarry, once again TFW blamed her brood for scaring off potential suitors.

What did come through again was her utter detachment from her own children. She views them as a pack, sees them in numbers only.
Katie offered up a lot of sympathy, which must make these kids feel
even less valued as individuals.

Oh, and based on what I just saw, I will not be tuning in again to witness Katie Couric toss her journalistic credentials out the window. The show is fluff, and having TFW as a guest certainly confirms that.

I think it's very sad and disturbing that an almost 40-year old woman has only ONE goal and that's to be on reality TV. It doesn't say much for her level of intelligence or maturity. You hear many teenagers and young children say they want to be on TV because they want to be famous. Most outgrow this dream.

I watched the Katie Couric show today. Nothing new, just lie after lie after lie, as usual.

Tucker's Mom said...

With or without an augmentation weight loss and/or gain can seriously affect a woman's profile. But yeah, judging from the pics she appears to be too thin for those puppies. :P
******
Yup, and the thing is, we women KNOW this! So Kate sitting there denying she had breast surgery and insisting that her enhanced bosom is attributed to a good bra is a flat out lie. Yet, even with direct questioning that is in no way nebulous, Kate lied.
Breasts will grow with weight gain. Breasts are fat (among other things) and after childbirth/ breast feeding, they deflate and sag. When a woman loses weight, the breasts generally decrease in size. Maybe they stay the same in rare cases, but they do not double in size with weight loss, especially in Kate's instance of near anorexia.

Meagler said...

So, the clip above is from her " Goodbye Tour" two years ago. After her comment about her TLC contract coming to the very,very,very end, makes me wonder if some of this " Now its my Really, really certainly my Goodbye Tour" is somehow sponsored by TLC. Not by money, but by the contacts onto some of the shows that she will be on this week.

As for TFW look, I think she is as thin as she has been since she took up the running, she just doesnt look as healthy.

On those ZIMBIO photos, you can scroll to pictures from the Rock n Roll marathon, and can see she is just as skinny there.

Remember Jamie saying on the final episode of Kate plus 8 that she could remember the “softer,” earlier Kate, but “now I see her, but [she's] more TV, more how-thin-can-I-be” — in short, more media-obsessed.

As for her forehead not moving, I wish I could find the clip where TFW says she has not had any plastic surgery put would never be opposed to it, and as she says that, she points to the II between her eyebrows.

I have always felt she got botoxed right before her photo op with starting Coupon Cabin, and may have had a botox touch up, or however it works, for this, her World Tour Finale.

As for her lipliner without lipstick,,,,r I think she's doing her own make up this trip, except for the TV appearances.

I think she would look better in classy dress pants , then the stripped dress, however I do think the shoes she had on were a bit classy and not the usual hooker strappy style.

Kate is trying to look like Barbie, and I have a funny feeling she may take a path similar to some celebs we know who go " under the knife" a few too many times.

Any links to any of todays interviews? I thot she had a few today?

Kate is a twit said...

Just watched Katie. These are the most interesting parts. The rest was about how hectic it is with 8 kids, how she does have help 20 hours a week, etc. They showed Katie at Kate’s house, making pizza, playing outdoor games with the kids-mostly fluff.

When asked what she thought about the Jon/gun incident, Kate said "I think I thought what any other mother would-the safety of my kids. I'm keeping their safety at the forefront of my mind. It's difficult because in the worse situation you don’t have control beyond your boundaries."

Katie asked a question from a person on twitter. This was the tweet:

@katiecouric how do paparazzi know when she will be shopping in rural Pennsylvania to get pics of her?

Katie said it seemed to imply that Kate was seeking publicity. In response, Kate said “I would not know how to contact…I have never spoken to any tabloids, called them, tipped off anyone. I know that there are those that do that regularly(with a look on her face implicating that Jon does). I have never done it. I would never put my kids in that sort of danger”

Then when asked about her relationship with Jon, “I only converse with him where the schedule is concerned. Then she said that after the divorce someone gave her good advice. “Just bite your tongue-just don’t give in. It’s still their dad. Because you don’t have a relationship, doesn’t mean they don’t”. Kate then goes on to say “it made me very aware and that’s the best thing for my kids.”

The lawsuit wasn’t even brought up. I guess Kate’s lawyers told her to STFU about it. Notice how she spoke about Jon today as opposed to her last two interviews. She’s now trying to act like she’s taking the high road by “biting her tongue”, yet at the same time she implies that he calls the tabloids, etc. Coincidence that the ROL story came out after her interview was taped?

This place is always good for a laugh--every day! The rugby player and #Steviepoops and then THIS-- (Thanks, AuntieAnn)

"Now that I look again at her chest, I think she actually just hiked the girls up really high with that good push-up. They seem awfully close to her chin. Better than closer to her navel I guess. Then again her belly button is pretty high too. Maybe she's getting some kind of new treatment where they pull all the saggy skin up at the top of the head. Then they tie it off and snip the excess. That would explain the surprised look of eyebrows and the upright girls.

ok I'll stop now."

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

It's this observation that strikes and you're right Silimom, it is sad. I mostly reserve my sympathy for the kids but as much as I resist it, I can't help but feel a twinge for Kate.

If this really is the beginning of the end, it is very much bittersweet, as Admin said.

It is a relief to think that maybe Kate will finally face reality and stop exploiting her children and focus on learning how to just love them and take care of them. On the other hand, no matter how it plays out it's going to be messy.

The only thing that keeps me from full out sympathy for Kate is that she insists on believing that getting back on T.V. is the end all. The longer she holds on to that idea, the harder it's going to be on the entire family.

So, a bit out there...but are the kids allowed to watch Mommy on T.V. while she does these interviews? I pray they aren't.

So she bites her tongue when it comes to Jon? So there are "rumors" out there? So she wouldn't know how to even get a hold of a pap?

What as with the bonzer around her mouth? Katie looks 10 yrs younger than tfw. She looks haggard. Stress does that to you too. I'm sure her stomach is in knots on a regular basis now. Soon after he ones she fooled will be well aware.

getofftwitter said...

Well, had the laugh of the day: When that Katie Couric says: Kate has no help: EXCEPT: 20 hours a week! Dumbest statement I've heard in a while. Yes, Katie you came on a day, when kids were not in school, poor kate can't take care of kids for even a short period of time. The rest of the segment was just pure BS on Kate's part. Katie couric, lost my respect for her, know wonder her talk show is tanking. Especially, someones question of: Kates part of not calling the pap to come to the Target parking lot or other places, Oh yeah, Kate these paps know(using ESP) where to find you in PA. I saw how Kate still does not let the kids chose their own food. At 9 & almost 13, they should be doing for themselves. The kids answers to Katies questions, sounded rehearsed. I also noticed that Kates skin was turning blotchy red, but with the orange top, it was hard to see.
As for the cookbook, finely saw it at BN, had a to actually look for it. Paged through it, Yeah, lots of pics, lots of professional photos of food, nothing like Kate, posted on her twitter site. Too perfect. And A lot of pics of the boys(all 3) and her favorite Hannah, a couple of pics of the older ones and a few of the other girls. The other recipes she uses a lot of canned, very few fresh anything. Waste of money. I did page through several other cookbooks, a lot had prep pics, before & after pics. Americas Test kitchen was one, America cooks, there was even a book devoted to lunch box food for kids.

I have not read all comments on this thread but I am commenting on a concept that has carried over from the last thread. Apparently, Kate is claiming she is at the end of her TLC contract and is now able to pursue the many interests in her and her kids?!? Really?? Does anyone else remember when Kate came out in April, 2012 (same time Jon was released of child support, supposedly voluntarily by Kate) and told us she was officially no longer under TLC contract. I do! So 18 months ago TLCs contact ended, (makes sense, 2 years after she signed for K+8) and now she is coming to the end of contract again?

This is her marketing ploy. Why has she not been working? She was under TLC contract. Now that she's off it, all those offers can be considered.... She is dumber than a box of rocks. How many times is she going to be "ending" her TLC contract. This latest one is bull. Also, TLC fired her. I doubt they would refuse to let her go to opportunities elsewhere if they were offered. Why would they care? They fired her. Also, Kate, ummm....remember that pesky litte show called, oh I don't know...Celebrity Wife Swap!

Kate's on Inside Edition tonight, and this article is posted on their website.

Interesting line-"Kate says life after reality TV is rough for her too. She misses the seven-figure salary she used to rake in, and all the attention she got on Dancing with the Stars."

Then about the gun incident:

"I'm doing what needs to be done with regards to a gun, and I'm following up on that. My priority is their safety," replied Kate.

This part seems that it might be taken out of context, but with Kate you never know:

"Four years after their divorce, Jon is now living in a cabin in the woods with no TV and no internet. He's supporting himself working as a waiter.

"Is Jon able to pay child support?" asked Alexander.

Kate answered, "I really don't pay attention to that. We've been divorced for four years now, and a lot of these reasons are why we're divorced."


Again no mention of the lawsuit.

LaLaLandNoMore said...

I really believe TFW is trying to make herself look like a different person and it isn't pretty. Seeing her tells me the issues she has have not gone away. TFW is self-absorbed and in no way does she want to leave show-biz. She will use anything or anyone to stay relevant. Quite sad she keeps popping up on television at all. Everyone in Katie's audience supposedly received a cookbook. Wow!

Hoosier Girl said...

My opinion only (not influenced by Robert's or Jon's or the haters' opinions!)

There may be some network willing to do an update or 2-hour special. Kind of like a - look at the Gosselin kids all grown up - type thing.

Where is that going to get her financially? That's a one-time paycheck.

And quite honestly, she shoots herself in the foot with her Twitter and website, to even have interest in that. She puts them out there! Anyone who reads her Twitter feed or her website sees the pics of her kids 'all grown up.' Yet, if she didn't put that stuff out there herself, she'd lose the few fans she has. What a catch 22?!

There just isn't any interest, from either the public or the industry, to justify the WOS ever getting more than a 'special.' WOS doesn't have any real talent that I've seen.

She's tried marketing herself in so many ways it's left everyone's head spinning. She's left the industry saying ... Who is she?!

Her kids (adorable and lovable as they are) are no longer at the marketable age, plus the 'having multiples' market has been saturated.

The draw to that show was initially the kids and a young couple struggling to raise them.

Once it was clear that they were being paid very well, and their family was being given so many opportunities not available to the average family .. the people who continued to tune in, were only tuning in to watch her treatment of Jon.

I honestly was, (and I think a lot people were!) just continuing to watch to see Jon finally lose it and give her one of those 'love taps' right back! I wanted to see him sit on that damn couch and tell her what a bitch she was, and that she was a horrible wife and mother! Sadly that didn't happen.

I'm so happy to see Jon at this place in his life, and though it would have brought BIG ratings, that he didn't let himself lose it on that couch.

It's been a long road for him, but it seems he's found a true peace. Some people never find that. I'm proud of him that he has, and that he is able to pass that on to his children if and when they are willing to hear him.

Jon has more in his life than Kate ever will, no matter how much money she makes or spends, how many fans she has or hasn't, or how many kids she can or can't turn against him.

Jon is at peace with himself. Kate will never be.

Wowser said...

I thought it was hilarious that TFW cooked ALL those pizzas when we KNOW all 8 have to share ONE pizza when she cooks for them and is not trying to impress Katie Couric.....also, did anyone notice how out of her element TFW looked while playing with the kids? She might also be losing weight and looking haggard because she knows Robert's book will be released soon and NOT pulled from the shelves less than 24 hrs. Later....stress can do that too....eventually lies are exposed and I think deep down Kate is hearing the TV death knoll

NJGal51 said...

If everyone in the audience at the KC show got a copy of TFW's book it would explain the jump in sales.

"Kate said she bites her tongue and keeps the peace (yeah right). I agree with your "yeah right" completely lalaland. I guess TFW doesn't really get the whole "bite your tongue" concept because she's done nothing but bad mouth Jon and throw him under the bus every chance she gets. Maybe the only way she'll "bite her tongue" is to go all Otto on her tongue. (10 points for anyo who gets the Sons of Anarchy reference).

westcoastie said...

If this has been mentioned please forgive me:

It is possible the ' settling up' TFW or PB was doing at the register was being paid out for books sold from HER supply. More than likely she is dragging around a box or boxes of books to have on hand at the signings since B&N will not have more than a handful available.
This is not uncommom for small print run books.

Well, had the laugh of the day: When that Katie Couric says: Kate has no help: EXCEPT: 20 hours a week! Dum
*****
What I wouldn't give to have help for 20 hours a week! If the helpers came only on weekdays, that's still four hours per day. They could go to the grocery store for me, do laundry, prepare dinner or do dinner prep, etc. That would leave me free to ummmmmmm, sit on my butt. Because that's what I do when I go home after work. Well, I guess I could get up off the couch to pick up my child from his after school sports. Come home to a prepared meal. Leave the dishes for the next day's helper.

Geesh - 20 hours a week! As if that's nothing.

Just saw the Katie Couric segment with Kate. TFW seemed more relaxed and, dare I say, somewhat coherent. Katie threw out a few "tougher" questions, but overall, same old, same old.

That's so sad.

I don't know if I saw it here or on her Twitter, but some sent a question for Couric to ask WOS that I thought was really good.

Went something like:

'Why would you want to keep Jon out of your kids' lives. With an emphasis on the fact that Katie Couric's kids lost their father to cancer and would most likely give anything to have him back, in any capacity. Katie Couric knows what it's like to REALLY be a single parent.

I thought Couric would at least be able to muster up the courage for that! I was wrong. What a sham ... and a shame.

I, too, noticed that some of the 8 kids looks miserable with no smiles on their faces. Especially remember Colin and Cara not looking happy at meeting Katie at the front door. Close-ups of the kids were not necessary! TFW is still using them at every turn. It's all she has going. I believe she sees those kids as her property and hers' alone. I have always felt that Jon was used for one purpose. Nothing I have seen or read has changed my mind about that.

Kate is a twit said...

TMZ has a new article about Kate with a video of her and Steve in NY. Notice how she stops to pose for the camera.
