Aunt Kendra: Kate has left a 'trail of hurt people'

In an interview with week with Dailymail, Kate's older sister Kendra Wilber went on record for the first time about her famous sibling. Kendra says she has been trying to reach out to Kate and her nieces and nephews for six years to no avail, which has been "very painful" for the family. "She wants a big life and we don't fit in," Kendra told reporters.

Shortly afterward, Kate's makeup artist and chief enabler Deanna tweeted that the article "lied" and that Kate misses Kendra  but just doesn't have her number. (LOL, oh that's great.)

As someone just said in the other thread, Lauren is a preview of what is to come. Lauren looks about 15. Right at the age where a kid is thinking wow I have a voice and thoughts of my own and I just want to say them and you can't stop me. Twitter and social media are a teen's dream.

There is no way all eight of these kids can be stopped. They're going to take to social media soon, and who knows what they'll have to say.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Here's another question for Deanna about how the relatives are just doing this for money. They had SIX YEARS to sell their story. Why wait all this time? Why not do it when they were on the cover of every tabloid and they could have made real big bucks?

I believe the family. I think seeing the twins on TV was deeply upsetting to them. If regular viewers like us were this upset, imagine if those girls were your nieces, your family. I think they feel that they have tried for six long years and that nothing whatsoever has ever worked. I think they too understand, as Jon does, that the only way Kate hears things is through the press. After six years, going to the press was obviously a method of last resort, and they appear to have suffered greatly for it being harassed by Kate's camp for doing so. It's not been any picnic for them going public just like it wasn't for Jodi and Kevin. So Deanna can put a sock in it.

getofftwitter said...

Sounds about right if Kates camp, tried to shut a relative up. Remember, Kate does not leak things to the media. And only Kate can make money or talk to the media. Yea, try Deanna, Jamie(if she is still a friend?). They always seem to blame Jon for all the media stories, especially the ones Jon never gave, which is most of them. The stories that favor Kate and try to paint her as poor mom etc. are probably the ones Kate put out there, or her lackey friends.

TLC stinks said...

Lauren resembles her mom. I bet when she innocently tweeted she had no idea it would stir up a sh*t storm. The sheeple are going to attack. Man the lifeboats!!

Blowing In The Wind said...

Deanna, you're an idiot and an enabler and I think you lied about that on your own. Or Kate is lying to you. Either one is pathetic.

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

Deanna needs to join Milo and shutupshutup, and stick to gushing over the butterfly sheets and makeup companies. She too immature to handle anything else. She's going to say something that Kate doesn't want said, nor have Kate's approval to say.

When I read the niece's tweet, the first thing I thought of is the "if" at the beginning of the statement. Does that necessarily mean that they did call Kendra, or is she saying ahead of time, IF they are GONNA (future) call (meaning it hasn't happened yet, but possibly could), then you'd think that Kate herself would call.

Localyocul said...

The niece seems to be a teenager . Her tweets are a mix of consecutive Christianity (which makes sense) and snarky teenager. She talks about babysitting and her mom confiscating her curling wand for leaving it on

Localyocul said...

Oops I reported my comment from the last thread before reading the post.

Guess TFW hasn't been slapped with a gag order (or she's ignoring it). I don't think the boys said http but I the did,.she has no cred. We saw her pulling the puppet strings in the twins even mouthing along to their rehearsed lines

Blowing In The Wind said...

I think that Kate's sister needs to take Twitter away from her daughter. Having a young teen in this mess isn't a good idea. She needs to stay out of it. She's liable to say something that isn't going to make the Wilber family look good. The interview was with Kendra, not Kate's niece, and even though her niece is part of the family, she needs to let the adults handle this.

getofftwitter said...

Admin: You know Jon said something on either WW or CT,about things Kate says or does, and he is the last to find out about it, or he finds out about it in the media. Perhaps Kates family also finds out things about the kids & Kate the same way through the media, and your right, her sister did this as a last resort. Knowing Kate reads all the media stuff, internet, rag mags, TV talk & shows. Kate is playing a game.

Berks Neighbor said...

Lauren sounds like a daughter who probably had enough of seeing her mom hounded by TFWs minions (PR people). I have no doubt now that TFW knew about the Daily Mail article, was asked for a comment and wouldn't give one, but then went on a rampage with her PR department to "CONTACT KENDRA" and tell her not to say anything.
Guess what TFW....Lauren didn't sign a freakin' CA (confidentiality agreement)...and she can tweet and talk until the cows come home.

Seems that all TFWs chickens are coming home to roost. (*haha...see what I did there...Chickens...TFW raises chickens*) ;-D

Hoosier Girl said...

Was Deanna lying, or just passing on the lies Kate told her? Regardless, it makes Deanna look foolish and like a liar ... neither of which looks good on someone who is supposed to be a professional make-up artist.

If her little tweet-fest of lies made it to the tabloids she'd be sunk. What celebrity wants someone like that around their inner circle? None I'd think. Deanna needs to grow up and think of her future.

And I'm sorry to hear about all the weather down south ... but SERIOUSLY!?!? I heard it was going to snow down there all the way up in Indiana. Did they miss is somehow? Why would you send kids to school with that mess coming?! Even Indiana knows when to call a complete shut down/no driving order. Sheesh!

Localyocul said...

Ok so TFW can point to Jodi and Kevin talking about child labor as a reason for estrangement but what did this poor sister do? PRIVATELY express concerns about the show to her? Classic narcissist to cut someone off who they perceive are criticizing you

Kia Ora said...

Loving this! I guess TFW forgot about nieces & nephews growing up!

Jane said...

One of the non-fans, as well as others, has been RTing and commenting on some of Kendra's daughter's tweets. I asked that they remove her Twitter name from the tweets and leave her be. But then I thought, she put herself out there and we don't know if she's 13 or 17 - big difference - are her tweets fair game?

Serendipity said...

Deanna must be dumber than a box of hair. This "she didn't have her phone number" is one of the most idiotic things I've ever heard. Before she even tweeted that, wouldn't you think that she would say, wait...I'll look her up in the white pages and see if she's there? Or at least stop and think, gosh, that's weird that she didn't have her phone number when there are so many other resources (such as Steve, or her mother, or her other sister whom she supposedly visited) that she could have asked? Heck, if her sister or her niece had Twitter, couldn't she have found her that way?

If Deanna would have thought about it just for a second, then she never would have tweeted anything that dumb.

I feel for them!

A few years ago my ex-BIL went on one of the talent shows and basically lied about his service to the country. I was getting phone calls from places like Inside Edition and another TV show, I think maybe E! I didn't talk, but geez people there was no need to call me! I was an ex-inlaw who hadn't talked to my exes side of the family in a few years.

I knew the truth, but why cause bad blood with the family?

http://www.realitytvkids.com/ Kate has NOT contacted us. My mom did not know they would publish what she said, plus some of it was false.

Huh? What did she think they were going to do with what she said?

********
I have a teenager, who has a smart phone. I imagine most teens have some type of similar cell phone. There really is very little way to "take Twitter away" or any other online access, except by taking away their cell phones. And that's really quite drastic, since that's also how I keep in daily communication with my son. I never know exactly when track practice might be over, or if he might stay after school to attend a basketball game, etc. So we text to keep our schedules straight.

Besides, even if this young lady's mom took her phone away, she could always just borrow a friend's phone, use her laptop, use a friend's laptop, use a computer in the library, ..... you see the difficulty of trying to control a teen's access to the world in this day and age?

While I agree that this young girl doesn't need to get into the fray, I would instead hope her parents simply talk to her and ask her to keep her internet activity to safer subjects.

cathyn518 said...

I am supervised that Kate still has someone in her camp. I mean Deanna and Milo make two. Does she still have people employed for PR?

Gabby2 said...

Guess second generation never signed those confidentiality clauses.

Many children grow up with a horribly abusing mother....BUT, I am tired of seeing TV media REWARDING child abuse. Tired of it!!!!!!

Nothing cripples a human being more than an abusing mother!!

Mel said...

You gotta feel bad for the extended family. Every time TFW or Jon do anything the extended family is probably hounded by 'reporters' to say something, anything. Just cuz they said no comment the first 100 times doesn't mean they're not going to say something interesting the 101st time.

That would get old real fast. Never knowing which day you're going to get bombarded with 1000 phone calls asking you to comment on something you have nothing to do with.

Maybe the family should consider a witness protection program.

MickeyMcKean said...

IIRC it was during the time Jodie and Kevin were testifying on behalf of the G8 that it came out that they never signed a Confidentiality Agreement. I'm pretty sure that because they were family it did not cross Kate's mind to get them to sign one.

This is why I always believed that Kate felt so betrayed ... and with no CA she had no recourse against her brother and his wife, i.e., lawsuit.

Now let's assume Kate does not have a CA with Kendra, as well as all her other relatives such as her siblings and parents. If they start talking now, Kate can't do anything about it.

BUT even if Kate has signed CAs with her siblings and parents, no way no how would a CA include all her nieces and nephews because they were (still are) minors and could not sign a CA.

Social media. As these nieces and nephews grow up with a voice of their own ... it is gonna bite Kate where the sun don't shine. Oh wait, it just did.

Sure hope Jon does contact Kate's family because if he can get declarations from them for the court that Kate is keeping the kids isolated not only from family but also from other activities so she has complete control over them, I would think it would only help his case.

PJ's momma said...

So of course Milo engaged with Kate's niece. Told her that now she has a taste of what Kate goes through every day, with people twisting her words.
Glad U said that...but in hindsight U see how twisted things get...how they misunderstood U...it happens 2ur AuntKate as well!

She/he/it is truly disgusting and unbalanced.

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

I didn't mean it literally. Texting and cell phones are necessary when you have kids. I don't know what we did without them, but as a parent, I think I'd be lost without that ability to stay in contact through phone calls and texting.

I meant that she should be instructed NOT to get involved in this Twitter mess, especially since the sheeple will come after her. This teen doesn't need that aggravation. Milo will no doubt insert herself into this, and Lauren's parents should tell her to ignore everything that goes down on Twitter regarding Kate and this article.

Gabby2 said...

milo trying hard to bring Lauren under her wing...LOL.

Mel said...

Another (relatively) innocent family dragged into the Gosselin vortex.

Jane said...

It's Lauren who's keeping the conversations going, responding to tweets from fans and non-fans. She seems like a nice, polite teen. If her mother made it known that her daughter should be left out of this, I'd expect her to say so. Maybe she's aware of what's going on and her silence condones it?

Katykat said...

I may be in the minority here, but Lauren is a minor. I feel funny about her being the topic of a post, even if she is dishing the info on WOS. Just my opinion. :)

localyocul said...

I hope she gives Milo a piece of her mind and the truth. Milo is assumin the Daily Mail twisted Kendra's words. I hope Lauren tells here there was no twisting and this is how it really is.

I wish those "haters" had not engaged Lauren. I mean, it was just a stupid cat joke. GMAB

TLC stinks said...

Milo is one sick puppy. Tweets to engage a teen girl after making nasty comments about her mother selling out to Kate.

I agree. When my dd was 13 I had her FB password and monitored it closely. Then came Twitter (which I monitor) Instagram Pinterest Tumblr and on and on. More sites will be constantly created. TFW is insane if she thinks she'll be able to control social media for her 8 teenagers one day.

grandee4 said...

Been waiting for this since 2008 when I started questioning some of the horrid things WOS did, even before she made it big.

I agree, the twins on Today really upset Kate's estranged family.
Kudos to Kendra and her daughter for recognizing that something is just not right behind the gates and have not been right for a while.

Hope Kendra does not stop talking and other family members talk up also.

Deanna must love having her head up WOS's ass. Cant be too comfortable with the stick being there also.

WOS's made her own bed when she allowed the People article and the teevee interviews. Comments are really negative on all.

Isn't there a FB page with K's mom and sister. Saw it once, it has to be fake. Both mom and sis talk about KK in a loving way.

To WOS's family, if you read here, please do not shut down. Those kids need you.

Thanks Hooser, yes the weather here New Orleans is really bad. We don't really know how to handle black ice, sleet and snow.

Got a small amount of winter mix yesterday with ice everywhere. Roads, schools businesses are all closed.

Have not been able to go to work since Sunday night. All the hospitals have essential staff on lock down until tomorrow. I had 4 days off but could have used the money. Paying time and a half 24/7. I may be called in tonight because there are a few that live close who want to go home. I live 5 min. away. Hope everyone is safe and warm, I know the snow storms are extremely bad and people have had enough in the areas that keep getting slammed with it.

Take care everyone, please be safe.

Serendipity said...

Since Milo believes that she's part of Kate's family, then I guess she thinks that Lauren is her niece. She'll be right there in the middle of it.

it's snowing here said...

Gee, Kate....you haven't seen a pic of your niece in over 6 yrs. did you feel any sort of pang of regret? did you see the family resemblance?

Shame on you for what you did to your kids and your entire family. Have any of your siblings had children since you tossed them away?How would you feel if one of our family members died during this estrangement? would you feel ANYTHING??
how do you feel right now? if the answer is 'nothing', then you are truly a lost soul.

I thoroughly agree with your comment. Plus why is it okay to post a picture of Lauren, when this blog specifically blacks out the faces of the Gosselin children?

This is my opinion, but I'm sorry, I just think this whole thread is going too far. Plus if someone hadn't published Lauren's tweets on the previous thread, would the haters and fans even know about her twitter account? We know they all read here.

This whole thing just leaves a bad taste in my mouth

Gee, think how nice it would be for Mady and Cara to get to know Lauren. Shame on Kate.

I wonder what Mr. Tuma thinks about these non-fans (and sheeple) who live on Twitter night and day, tweeting the same thing over and over again, baiting each other to come out and play.

Interesting article.

Math Girl said...

Thanks to everyone who weighed in on the time zone issue. To summarize:
- this blog is on PST
- twitter is on local time, so if you aren't eastern and are looking at K's tweets, you have to adjust to get when she tweeted (her time)

When people started saying the blog is on PST, I thought it was because admin is PST, not because google/blogger is. I looked around on the blog page to see if there is a way of adjusting time, and didn't see one. But I'm not registered, and there may be a way for registered users to do it.

When that loyal fan of TFW's hops on Twitter immediately to defend her honor, am I the only one who's thinking, geez, don't you have any other obligations in your life? You work, you have a husband, you have 2 kids, you have a household and pets to take care of, but the second there's a battle to fight, bam, you're ready to rumble. As many of us have commented, it makes TFW seem helpless, not supported. It makes her seem weak, not strong.

AuntieAnn said...

Milo we know you read here. Here's your learning lesson for today:

Kate trotted her twin daughters out on the Today show. By doing so, metaphorically speaking she threw a stone in the water, which created something called The Ripple Effect.

A ripple effect is a situation where, like the ever expanding ripples across water when an object is dropped into it, an effect from an initial state can be followed outwards incrementally.

In sociology, it can be observed how social interactions can affect situations not directly related to the initial interaction. (wiki)

Got it? Now go busy yourself by finding a platitude for your idol that corresponds with the ripple effect.

Then please, shut. the. hell. up.

OrangeCrusher1 said...

So apparently niece Lauren reads here, which makes me think her mother does too. My only comment would be that I hope Kendra has a conversation with her daughter about not engaging via social media with some of the crazies that are in love with her Aunt Kate. Yes, Milo, talking right at you since you have no moral boundaries when it comes to the love of your life. Lauren, block her and anyone else that talks like her, it will only bring you grief.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think it's important to know the Wilbers were harassed by team Kate. The tweets were already out there. She cries bully then bullies her own family. Lauren's not a baby, she's almost an adult. I'm sure the family knew what they were doing going public and I think they handled it well. Lauren also doesn't have a long history of being exploited which is why the Gosselins faces are blurred, because they've had enough. I've never blurred other minors.

Looks like Admin has removed the photo. If the Gosselin kids took to social media to discuss their life and times, would that also be off limits?

Formerly Duped said...

re: social media. It also makes kids privy to what others post. Others can be very mean and inappropriate. I used to be surprised what was 'allowed' on FB or what kids would put up at their own risk for future employers, colleges to see etc. Some mothers I knew would deny their kids drank underage, for example, yet I would see them doing so on my kids' FB.

=======

Milo's lust for Kate takes precedence over everything else. Her feelings for Kate are not only a state of mind; they are a physical need that she believes must be fulfilled no matter what. Therefore, she imagines herself not only as part of Kate's family, but one who must protect Kate from the evils of the world, i.e., the haters, the tabloids, her ex-from-hell, and heck,..anyone who would dare say anything against her.

She's really one unstable individual. Unfortunately, her own family lets this obsession continue and most likely knows that she's beyond help. I guess once you're a Gladys Kravitz, there's no turning back.

"Texting and cell phones are necessary when you have kids. I don't know what we did without them, but as a parent, I think I'd be lost without that ability to stay in contact through phone calls and texting."

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

With all due respect this comment just boggles my mind. Seriously, I mean absolutely no offense at all and I do get what you're saying Blowing. Though, personally, I'd say that about my washing machine or dishwasher instead of a phone.

So far only the most recent generation of children have had access to instant, at the hand ready communication.

What we did without cell phones was to wear a watch, carry enough change for a pay phone and bus fare. We also made sure we were home when we were supposed to be, or called if we were going to be late or needed a ride, if we wanted the privilege of going out on our own again.

I think the notion that cell phones are necessary creates a prolonged dependency on parents to time manage for their children and interferes with the natural consequences of being late and unprepared.

I believe it was merely clever marketing that created the idea that we are uncaring and neglectful parents if we don't give our child a cell phone to keep tabs on them.

One cell phone per child, one cell phone for Mommy, one cell phone for Daddy and just in case of emergencies, one for Grandma too.

Way to go Steve Jobs.

Just my opinion, as usual. :D

NJGal51 said...

I agree with everything you said AuntieAnn and let me reiterate what she said to Milo SHUT.THE.HELL.UP!

Unless TFW's niece is enjoying the twitter attention (which she just might based on her tweet where she said "Contrary to seemingly popular belief, I am not just some defenseless, young child. I have a way with words, yo. #Genetics ;)") she needs to go private. It's already getting out of hand.

Me too.

As to people who feel this entire post should be scrubbed, that's up to Admin, but I don't think it's necessary. So far, I have not heard or seen anyone here trying to interact with this teenager via Twitter or otherwise. She seems to be aware of this site however. This blog is a place where we have long talked about all things Gosselin - and the public tweeting by this young lady certainly falls into that camp.

However, if I were her mother I would be insisting she make her Twitter private for now, and to absolutely not respond to any tweets or other contact from strangers. My son doesn't use twitter but he does have FB and my requirement was that it be private, with only friends allowed to view posts/pics. He also knows not to allow anyone to "friend" him unless they are actually someone he knows. Common sense is so important in this day and age, so I hope this young woman's parents are helping her develop that.

____________

Milo tweeted her only once. She tweeted one other tweet to mscatie and LW's name was in the mention. Trying hard? I don't think so.

Just my two cents said...

I don't see that anyone has made her niece fair game here. She provided some information that she was contacted by Kate's entourage a few days before the article went live. Kate probably sent them in when she was asked to comment. I think the information is relevant. Who provided it doesn't really matter.

My opinion...this topic and the picture included are out of line. I thought kids were off limits.
*************
didn't we just spend the past week or so discussing the teenagers' appearance on The Today Show? Haven't we spent countless posts discussing our concerns re the children?

I know there has been agreement that Admin chooses not black out the children's faces if she posts a magazine cover, etc. However, how can you say discussion re the children is off limits, when that makes up a good portion of the comments? We worry about Colin, who hasn't seen his dad since August. We worry about Cara, because some think she appears depressed. We discuss how Mady seems to be a Kate mini-me.

It is up to Lauren's parents to tell her to put her Twitter on private, and to stop interacting/responding to stranger's tweets. That should have been a conversation they had with her when she very first signed up for Twitter.

A polite conversation on this blog about Lauren's public tweets does not make us creepy monsters. But do what I do whenever there is are posts that don't interest me - skim over them. I trust Admin to handle her blog in the same professional manner she has always done.

Millicent said...

Dear Anonymous Sheeple @ 45: While I appreciate the attempt to deflect and distract, it doesn't work on me. No one here is harassing or exploiting anyone, including Kate's niece. It is up to the young woman's parents to pay attention to what she does online and to instruct her in how to best behave online. I'm sure they will do so, if they have not already.

She says press. She means the press that follow Kate. Nobody called then on Kate's behalf to shush them.

So apparently niece Lauren reads here, which makes me think her mother does too.
============

One of the non-fans tweeted Lauren the link to this post, and most likely she came over here to see what was said. I highly doubt either she or her mother knew about this blog before today.

She says press. She means the press that follow Kate.

That's how I took it.
It's gotta be annoying to have the 'press' calling you all the time, just in case you say something that they can use.

You may be right:

@LaurenWilber: http://t.co/TNBfyMbLjg Kate has NOT contacted us. My mom did not know they would publish what she said, plus some of it was false.

Mel said...

I had the misfortune once to be involved in a story that was on the front page of the local newspaper for days. I remember being astounded at how much information they had wrong. Not deliberately, or maliciously. Just not caring enough to pay attention, I guess. They printed what they thought they heard/understood, didn't double check anything. Floored me.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Since a reasonable person could interpret the niece's post two different ways (even I read it one way first) I'm going to remove it from the post and also because some people don't think she should be in the post. If she says anything more we'll see.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Ah glad she clarified. Although how did Kendra talk to daily mail and not know they would publish what she said. Ummm what? So then maybe she wasn't paid? How do you get paid but not realize you're giving a story?

People being misquoted or misunderstood happens all the time in the press. She can always clarify what they got wrong. Certainly we saw many factual errors in the article.

Sheri said...

To Blowing,

I hope I didn't offend you, it was not my intent. I just reread my response to your comment and realized I may have taken it out of context.

I took it from the perspective of a child or young teen needing a cell phone. Of course, you could have meant older and adult children too.

In which case, I'd have to say that I totally agree that texting and cell phones are a great way to keep in touch with kids who don't live at home anymore.

I stand my jab at Steve Jobs though. ;)

********
So is LW saying that neither Kate nor her reps called them, as has been speculated here, but rather it was the tabloids (Kate's press) she was referring to?

Also, it sounds very much to me as if she is saying that while her mom talked to a reporter, she didn't realize what she said would be published and also that the reporter lied/made up some things in the article?

I think Kate's niece is trying to defend her mom, which I applaud her for and I think she is reading here right now. LW, my advice is to also step away from tweeting about this. There are people who will always love Kate and people who will always detest her and the rest of us in the middle. You will never change the Fans/Non Fans minds and frankly I think these are people who just like to argue, no matter what the topic.

Go give your mom a kiss and a hug, thank her for never putting you on reality tv and then go back to being an average teen.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

What happened before cell phones is we had to make our schedules known at the beginning of the day and there wasn't much easy way to change them. Cell phones have allowed us more flexibility without worrying anyone which I think is generally good and efficient. If you're going to be 30 minutes late now you can call mom instead of her waiting 30 minutes in the parking lot.

Also there were more pay phones back in the day and less fear of kidnappings, etc. They're a convenience that has sort of morphed into a need. I also am in full agreement that if kids want to get on social media they will find a way. You can take away their phone and close their accounts but they'll just go on another friends phone and set up new ones. The Gosselins will be next.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I guess I can see a sneaky reporter saying hey I'm not necessarily planning a story I'm just trying to get some info and context off the record between you and me. But if that's the case Kendra should contact daily mail and report that journalist. That is an outrageous violation of ethics.

I kind of suspect the niece is just trying to protect her mom which is how real kids show love instead of the constant I love you's you're the greatest.

Nancy said...

Ok I'm really starting to like this girl, as a Mom not sure I would encourage BUT having said that I raised my kids to speak their minds and really why the heck shouldn't she be able to say what she wants.

The absolute restraint this family has shown over the past 6yrs is astonishing in this day and age. Kate should have counted her lucky stars but yet again she is her won worst enemy!!!

Localyocul said...

@LaurenWilber: Hun, if you cannot find our number... There's a thing called phone book. If the paps can use it, so can you.

Sheri said...

As to the subject of this post...

I just think it's sad that an extended family member(s) are getting drawn into this mess. I feel for Kate's sister wanting to make it known that the estrangement was not their doing, it's important for the kids.

I have to wonder though if she doesn't now wonder if it was worth it. To be so torn between love for your sister and her children and having to protect your own.

Though I can sort of relate, it's no where near the same scale and I certainly can not imagine it all being played out in the media.

Thank you Admin - LW is a beautiful young lady (I personally didn't think she bore any resemblance to her Aunt) but I applaud your decision to remove her picture and tweet from the post. I do think it's fine to discuss the tweets of the niece and responses to them - but as "the niece". She's young, probably sees her mom missing her sister, nieces and nephews, but may have not realized the nature of her aunt's twitter timeline. Sadly, she does now :( Kate, please, fix your relationship with your family. It's not too late.

Glad to see Lauren closed her twitter. She can get a new one. She doesn't need to be drawn in to an adult discussion/mess. Hopefully she can be there as an older cousin to the G kids when they come looking for their lost family. Weren't Jodi and Kevin's kids or a least one of them a little older than the G's. They'll be on social medial soon.

Willowmom said...

Auntie Ann, LOLing (in a loving way) about your 87 YO mom & life alert. Tell her to put that thing on! My 94 YO mom has used hers three times & only once was she near her bedroom dresser. It has indeed been a life safer. She (my mom) would not know what to do with a cell phone.

On another note, all you great people in the South, stay safe!

Berks Neighbor said...

If TFW would just engage with her family there would be no need for adulation via twitter nor would she need her 'not-a-nanny's. She could have family coming in and out of that place, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. I just don't understand her thinking. She trusts her 'paid friends' more than she does her family. Paid friends will sell you out as soon as the money dries up.

lukebandit said...

OT: I came across a picture of Harry Styles, one of the One Direction boy singers. He is totally bombed and urinating out in a yard with his pants completely down and his entire backside exposed. No frontage, just backside. Also, there are pictures of the OD boys in a photo shoot and they are grabbing each others privates, fully clothes. Stupid!

If I had daughters and they wanted to go, they would not be going.

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

oh my! My mom had a cell phone but it was on her desk. She had a stroke but was able to roll near to desk but could not get up to reach it. (landline was a wall phone besides) She laid for 24 hrs or more before my brother dropped by and found her. She was in the hospital a month. She now has the alert necklace thing and her phone around her neck all the time. (she made a pouch to hang her cell phone in) Plus a cordless desk phone for landline. She doesn't want to go through that again. It was horrible for her to not be able to contact anyone and not able to get to bathroom too.

Tell her if she refuses to have alert on at least store it low to ground somewhere so if she is able to crawl or roll she can reach it!!!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think the niece should say what's on her mind if she wants to. I like her spunk. If her parents decide she shouldn't though, then they have the final say. It's a good reminder that young people are going to do and say what they want, that's part of growing up and finding your voice.

PJ's momma said...

lukebandit, One Direction are British and part of their culture is drinking. In fact, they call getting drunk 'getting pissed.' Their legal drinking age is much lower than here too. Along with throwing back all those pints of beer or ale comes some behavior which might be frowned upon here, but is not really thought of as a big deal there. I've seen guys in suits lined up peeing in an alley on a weeknight, because the after work overflow from the pub forced them outside and they didn't want to fight their way through the crowd inside to get to the loo. I doubt their UK fans give it much of a second thought at all.

I think that she's afraid that she's doing something illegal by asking for names, addresses and phone numbers and not publishing the "rules" of the not-a-contest; therefore, she's ignoring the whole thing, hoping it will go away.

What a coincidence -- the medical alert commercial is playing on television right now. I have to laugh at the woman who calls medical alert to tell them that she's feeling lightheaded. They ask if she wants them to dispatch an ambulance, and she tells them not to fuss, but they should call her neighbor. If she didn't want the paramedics, and obviously has the neighbor's phone number why didn't she just call the neighbor herself instead of medical alert? Instead, she calls the middleman.
Who writes these ads? lol!

capecodmama said...

Formerly Duped...52

My best friend's daughter is a senior in college and she took her FB page down last fall because she doesn't want it out there as she goes on job interviews. Even though she didn't have anything bad on it, she can't control what her friends put on their FB page and she doesn't want it coming up on hers. I don't have FB but I've seen what people post through my oldest daughter's FB page and my friends. It's appalling.

With regard to LW, she has TFW's number. And I'm not talking about her phone number.

Oh I fully agree with you. I'm glad to hear it has helped your mother.

LifeAlert keeps calling me to find out if mine is okay. Then I have to phone her to tell her to phone them.

She's very stubborn. She still lives in the same house she and dad bought 45 years years ago, drives, goes to church every Sunday and dances at the Legion. She makes her own grape wine rumspringa.

She also plants a not-a-garden. It has been a perennial not-a-garden for years.

Mom - I'm not planting a garden this year. Too much work.

Me - Oh good, I worry about you being out in that hot sun.

Mom - It's not hot at 6 am.

Me - Well, I'm still glad you're not putting in a garden.

Mom - I'll just put in a few potatoes. I like new potatoes.

Me - You'll put the rest into lawn then, right?

Mom - No. I'll put in a couple of rows of carrots. I like baby carrots. And just one row of beets. I like beets for borsht. And a few string beans. I like them with gravy.

Me - That's a garden.

Mom - No, it's not. It's just a few seeds. Oh and I might put in a row of lettuce. I like baby lettuce with cream and vinegar.

Me - Okay. I'm just glad you're not putting in garden.

Mom - Me too. Too much work.

Additionally and importantly, Kate's condition for entry was that she was sent physical evidence (photo, video) of the act, so if that person is a minor, man, that does not look good.

I'd guess her parents put the kabash on her twitter. She was excited to maybe get 200 followers, so I think she would have kept it going.

Too bad she got tweeted by Milo and others. That was uncalled for. Now the family will clam up again.

Well, Milo, since you read here, some day you will be found out. Why don't you and Deanna just butt out and let the deck of cards fall, because I do not understand the lying that goes on to protect Kate. What's in it for you? Has she ever met you? Invited you to PA? Asked you to babysit? Do you think she cares about some middle aged southern woman (if that's who you are)? You are being used as her mouthpiece to do her dirty work because she doesn't want bad publicity and it was shameful to contact Lauren after your comments about her mother. You're not a relative, you're not even a friend.

JoyinVirginia said...

Thanks for the news that the niece has shut down her twitter. TFMJG attracts the most extreme twidiots.
The lack of extended family is what first concerned me about TFMJG. My dd in college at the time came home raving about this show with the cute couple and their eight cute kids. I watched it with her and asked ” where are the grandparents?” That is when dd told me TFMJG said their families ”didn't know how to help them”. A friend who was a big fan at first said when Aunt Jodi disappeared is when she wondered what was wrong.
And this is where TFMJG and her advisers were way off the coming trends. Now the Duck Dynasty clan, the entire family, is featured on a show and still popular! The interaction between all the family members, people like to see.
TFMJG thought she was the star. Nope, fans liked to see the family interactions. People loved Aunt Jodi! The interaction between Jon and TFMJG was what folks tuned in to see, and wonder when he would finally get sick of it and stand up to her.
TFMJG on her own? Boring, esp after the forty second ” Set the record straight” tour.

******************
They are few and far between. I heard that law enforcement agencies would encourage their removal in certain places because they were used by drug sellers. Don't know how true that is, but I've had the same experience in looking for a pay phone.

rainbowsandunicorns said...

What we did without cell phones was to wear a watch, carry enough change for a pay phone and bus fare. We also made sure we were home when we were supposed to be, or called if we were going to be late or needed a ride, if we wanted the privilege of going out on our own again.

-----

Several years ago I would have agreed, but unless you've had a teen who had just gotten a drivers' license and was sitting alone along a rural highway in a car with a smoking engine, one doesn't know the relief that a cell phone can bring to a nervous parent who is sitting at home waiting for that child to pull into the driveway, and not knowing what happened or where that child might be.

My MIL (95) has this service and you don't have to call them, all you to it press the button (or whatever on the necklace) and they come on over the intercom. My MIL has done it just to have them call us when she doesn't think she requires anyone else.

PatK said...

Perhaps Milo or one of the other Ewes looked up Kendra's phone number and called to let her know about her daughter's Twitter interactions regarding Kate's fans and haters. Bam! Twitter account shut down.

In regard to Kendra not knowing what the reporter was going to do with what she said, does that mean she DID NOT get paid for speaking with him?

Anyway, I'm guessing this is the last we'll hear from Kendra (or her Tweeting Daughter). I expect that Kate's mom and other sisters will see to that.

I don't understand how people can still consider ANY of TFW's statements to have even a germ of truth. She is a pathological liar. Of course she reads here, as does her alter-ego Milo. I'm sure they're one and the same. If Shoka was in a picture, it was an old one...I can't even get started on all the lies...she does damage control, as someone else said...she comes here to find out what fires she has to extinguish. It's all so obvious. I read here to find out what travesty she has most recently committed, and hope she finally meets her Waterloo, as damaged as possible. I could care less if she received therapy: she is a hopeless case. The kids need therapy, and they need to be removed from her care.
Good on Lauren for standing up to the plate.

Millicent said...

Sheri - I can appreciate your sentiments re cell phones. Yes, back in "my day", we just made arrangements as to pick up times, etc. But if something changed last minute, there often wasn't a way to let either side know. And most recently, my sister traveled from the west coast to the east coast, right when a storm struck the east (again). So I did appreciate receiving some texts from her when her connecting flight got cancelled and she had to sleep overnight in Dallas, and again the next day to tell me she was safely home. She didn't want to bother me at work, yet I still wanted to know what was going on :)

AuntieAnn, your mother is a hoot. I can see where you got your spunk from. I love that she still goes dancing :) May I be as active and as fully enjoying life should I reach that age as well.

I have no doubt that the ROL story came from one of the sheeple. What's pathetic is that they used a picture of the family, including minor children along with the story. Sheeple will stop at nothing when it comes to defending their idol.

It's surprising that ROL never dug up that story about Kate and the hit-and-run. They like dirt and skeletons in the closet -- let them get the police report on that.

I started to read this post and all the comments, as I do most days, and started to feel badly. By all appearances, L-the-niece is a minor. Even if L cannot foresee the downside in stating interest in the K8 saga, we all know only too well that she has opened herself up to a mess.

I think it is incumbent on me to not participate in this one and I will bow out of this discussion.

I wonder if the Wilbers were threatened with this disclosure if the article was not canned? ROL should have not published. It has nothing to do with the MailOnline article other than embarrass a family. A real story would be if the info can be traced back to Kate.

localyocul said...

WOW What a bitch!! She had heard this through the grapevine and told ROL. WOW. No way would ROL uncover this on their own. So he had a charge dropped and got a fine for swearing? Ooooh Only in Lancaster County. Did I say bitch?

@AmberGoodhand @Kateplusmy8 It doesn't matter who did what. To sell info for $$$ about a family member is completely wrong on every level.

Amber Ryland ‏@AmberGoodhand 1m
@MY_2BCOLLIES @Kateplusmy8 Ur assuming she got paid, when I don't believe she was. Devil's advocate -- Kate gets paid 4 everything she says.

Although I think Amber's article about Kendra's husband was low down and mean, I do like that she is putting this sheeple in her place.

*********

And I bet Amber knows darn well that TFW provided the info for the article. Too bad she can't say so. Maybe she feels bad.

PatK said...

So now I'm thinking that it wasn't sheep contacting Kendra as being the reason the daughter shut down her Twitter account, but rather this latest ROL article. What a mess.

"I guess Kate got the hounds out looking to dig up dirt. This has got Kate's fingerprints all over it. What a witch! This is exactly why people are afraid to tell the truth about her."

It wouldn't be difficult to find. Even someone as dumb as Milo could do it. If they wanted dirt, all they had to do was search LancCo prothonotary under her name or husband's name and the docket would come up. It's a free search.

Not many pay phones left. But with so many people having cell phones with "unlimited" calling, it's pretty easy to borrow a cell phone these days!

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

Unless you're in a car by yourself, headin down the highway (lookin for adventure!) and your cell phone dies. You have to call to find out if your flight was delayed or cancelled, and there are no payphones, and nobody around from whom to borrow a darn cell phone!

LaLaLandNoMore said...

TFW's sister and family should be counting their lucky stars to be rid of such a vile person. That Radar article was just right out mean and we all know who was behind it. TFW doesn't work a real job so that gives her lots of time to "get even" and use others to do her bidding. What a sad state of affairs when the knife is inserted and twisted by TFW. Believe me, I do not condone anyone talking publicly about the Gosselins. Any attention, good or bad, feeds that huge ego of TFW's. We need to begin to starve it out! Having said that, I wish Admin and all bloggers here the best in life. I am taking a stand against anything Gosselin. Sticking a fork in it, done, done, done!

Oh, good lord...

Non-fans asked the author of this story how digging up dirt on Kendra's husbvand is relevant to the Kate/Kendra story. She tweeted:

I don't condone what he did, not at all. But he snuck around the homeowners house while they weren't home. Kate used to look people in the eye while she took their "love offering" while having a couple mil in the bank. Call me biased, I feel what she did was worse.

Keep digging that grave, TFW. You are now at such a low level of mental stability that you dont realize how unwantable you are in the public eye. And you just get worse.

localyocul said...

Wow what a mess. The "haters" are going at it with that Amber and she deserves it. Why hurt those kids by putting that out there? They may have known nothing about it...and now they have to go to school. She is claiming Kate had nothing to do with it. Bullshit. Then she had one of her people do it. She may have even emailed Milo and had HER or HIM do it. I'm just so angry at ROL for printing that because Kendra said she was hurt by her bitch of a sister.

That article was MEAN and has nothing to do with the matter at hand. It smells of sheep all over it.

Paula said...

Re: ROL article. Kate and her merry little band of sheep are beyond stupd. These types of articles coming from Kate's camp only further cement her reputation as a mean, vile, vindictive person. No one would want to work with such a person. She's putting the few nails left in her own coffin.

Someone up thread mentioned how easy it is to come by the info ROL released. It could very easily been BV and his thugs, the defective detective, Goody, Zigiot, even dumb as a rock Milo who sent this in. On behalf of Kate, of course.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Another thing about cell phones is back in the day if we got a car stuck in the snow or out of gas we'd wait for a motorist to pull over and help us out. I just don't think in this day in age that's safe anymore to do. You need the cell to call a licensed tow company like AAA, for safety reasons.

PatK said...

So, according to the sheeple way of thinking, ROL is an okay trashy tabloid once again (alongside PEOPLE, of course)?

localyocul said...

DI (dry ice!) ‏@LakeRat2014 36m
@RealZiggyFlo @Fly_On_TheWall @radar_online That's 4 sure & that info was easily found. I found it earlier & wasn't even looking for that.

Well there you go then. Her vile fans began digging dirt on the family for daring to be hurt by TFW.

localyocul said...

When we were in HS and our sports practice was over we would make a collect call. If we used our middle name it meant I'm ready to be picked up. Parents would not accept the call and they would come get us. If we used our first name it meant "I need to talk to you". Good thing ROL wasn't around to dig up this scam we had going.

Now is the time that Robert's book needs to be published!

TLC stinks said...

LancNative, I would not know to do that. Only someone with a vendetta would go to the trouble to do such a thing. And only someone who had knowledge about the arrest and where to find written proof would do such a thing. If Kate did not personally tip off ROL, it had to be her who told a sheep to do the deed. Kate is hands off when it comes to dirty work so it doesn't come back to bite her in the butt. She is behind it, mark my words. Like I said before, Steve had the investigative tools to dig up dirt on anyone who would open their mouth. I bet there is a compilation of dirt on plenty of family and former friends.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

And most of the charges were dropped, down to just a misdemeanor. Maybe he felt he was innocent but didn't want to drag his family through a big trial so just took the deal. Who knows, but none of it is any of our business or relevant to this discussion.

I hope this pisses off all the family enough that they come out now for a showdown. WTH does that arrest have to do with Kendra other than embarrass the family as punishment? Kate is a psycho bitch. She must have gotten Steve to compile a dirt file on all the family.

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

I agree with TLC stinks. TFW, I can see it now. She has a thick dossier on each family member and when the time is calling for certain information on a certain family member, BAM, calls ROL and GETS A CHECK for it!

She also got paid to allow the twins to call their siblings rabid and a wild animal.

TFW, who loves to hit below the belt, your pile of Blood Money is getting higher and higher everyday. But one day it will stop.

Can't believe ROL's Amber didn't do a little research and find out the information came from TFW. That's where the story is!

So glad LW took her twitter down. She took it down just in time, it is starting to get out of control.

Why doesn't ROL OUT MILO? There's a good story.

I think I will email Nev. He would know how to help us.

Nancy said...

Well I for one do not believe in coincidences, this is spite, hate and mental illness plain and simple on TFW part doesn't matter who tipped off ROL she is behind it.

Look at the timing seriously I am not the stupid or gullible

kids first said...

Whoops! Looked at the calendar wrong. She has two full days left to make this one of her more memorable months.

Mel said...

When people close to other 'celebrities' spill the beans about things, their whole family isn't investigated and pictures of the family published.

I guess publishing a photo of Kendra is possibly fair game, since she's the one who talked to a publication.

But it seems *extremely* unfair to publish photos of her minor children.

Or investigate the husband. *He* didn't do any talking about TFW.

(((((((((((((((

Oh, I totally agree. Someone tipped them off, and I can see the most vicious of the sheeple coming up with this. It's not a matter of public records in our local paper, as far as I know. They publish police reports, such as DUI, retail theft, etc., but unless this was a big story (which it wasn't) the local paper most likely would not have published the charges and the guilty plea. This came from searching the court docs. Lancasteronline has public records going back farther than this one, and it's not among them. If you search his name, what comes up is the Lititz school auction. Someone dug deeper than the online newspaper for this one.

localyocul said...

I know how to find the information in PA only because we use the same system at my job. I just went and did find it now. But you have to look for the information. Someone deliberately looked for it.

Lanc Native said...

I hope if the Wilber family has a dog, they keep him/her on a leash. ROL will grab a photo if the dog is caught watering the neighbor's lawn.

Anonymous I did not "harass" a teen. I had nothing but nice things to say about her spunk and honesty. We posted a tweet that was public and already reposted multiple times. Other people were harassing her on twitter. I'm not on twitter. I can't control what other people do on twitter but I can control what we post, so I took it down. You will never be happy no matter what I do. All I can say is I'm very sorry the family can't say what they want to say without feeling harassed.

**************************
For those of us who grew up in a major city, it wasn't safe to do "back in the day" either. When I was in high school 30 years ago, there was a serial killer on the loose in my immediate community. There is nothing inherently more dangerous about today's world. In fact, it's the opposite. Crime, including violent crime, has decreased over the last several decades, not increased.

Tucker's Mom said...

RE: phones losing charge-- get a portable charger. I bought one and would not leave home without it! This one is amazing. It can charge phones and pads/dvr players etc. with 2 different ports.
It charges better than a car charger, although I have those too!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Let me put it this way Alia we're more aware of the dangers of just waiting for a motorist to help regardless whether crime has gone up or down. Why risk it? Use a cell. And in a city you can walk a few blocks to a public store or gas station. But on the country roads I am used to you can go tens of miles before seeing some place public and safe like that. A cell is safer regardless of crime rates.

The way she's going, we're looking at TFW's Top 10 Worst Moments for January! And she'll easily have 100 notably bad moments for the year to choose from. Good luck, Admin!

It's snowballing exponentially, or as Auntie Ann said, a huge ripple effect.

Someone posted this earlier, and I thought it was a brilliant catch:

Kate Gosselin ‏@Kateplusmy8 Dec 31

It tells me Kate expected to rake it in BIG TIME on Growing Up Gosselin, beginning with the pro-Kate piece in People and then the Today show. THIS was going to be her big comeback year! She had no idea the crash that was coming.

________________________________

LOL!! Well, of course not -- at least not directly. The author of this story knows that a sheeple (likely Milo and her cohorts) tipped her off at the direction of Kate. Therefore, Milo and the author can say that Kate had nothing to do with it because it was one or more of the sheeple who did the dirty work for her.

What a convoluted mess.

localyocul said...

This part cracks me up though:

#SameGoal #NewYr

If you have the same goal every year, that means you don't meet it. Maybe it's time to give up and get a new goal

localyocul said...

See My Dreams Materialize!

That's what happened to her...she got lucky and had multiples like she hoped. Then she got lucky and got a special. Then she got lucky and TLC gave her a series with all that money and freebies. Her dreams just "materialized". It had nothing to do with hard work. It was just pure dumb good luck.

it's snowing here said...

TFWOJG's fast ambush of her sister sounds just like something she'd do to intimidate her family to shut their mouths. She's a real piece of work.
This info came directly from Kate. I bet she's had ol' rat claws dig up dirt on her family for years...
and when Kate needed it, it was right there.

She is SO OVER her family. I believe there is no redemption for Kate. she is rotten to the core.

Amy2 said...

So Kate wants to play the tit for tat game. Her family has been silent all these years but this may be the tip of the iceberg where they fight back. "Outing" a relative who has nothing to do with Kate is wrong, wrong I say. And if Kate wants to play this dirty, dirty game, I'm sure the family has lots of dirty things they can reveal about Kate. Time will tell on whether her family unleashes the comments they have been holding in for all these long years.

Paula said...

Sadly, I think you are correct.

Someone may have leaked the story for TFW but anyone with half a brain can figure out she was behind it. Not a good PR move, especially so soon after her other disasters. She just doesn't think about the ripples, yet again.

Math Girl said...

RE cell phones and fear of strangers.

At one time we regularly drove a stretch of highway that has no cell coverage for an hour and a half of driving, and one pay phone halfway through the "dead" zone. When we had a car breakdown, I didn't hesitate to take a ride to the pay phone with a passing motorist while my husband stayed with the car. The tricky part was that when I called AAA, they said that the tow truck would be coming from the other direction, so I had to hitch back to the car before the tow truck got there or risk being stranded. It was getting to be dusk, there was very little traffic on the road, and I practically jumped in front of the first car that came along. He couldn't help me, because he wasn't going far enough, but the second car could and did.

Thinking back, I wouldn't have been stranded. I knew what town my husband and car were going to, and could easily have hunted them down there. But still, my fear of being stranded was much greater than my fear of being attacked.

I think that because of media attention, fear of strangers has increased much more than the real dangers.

I do have a cell phone, and a car charger, but you can't always depend on them. If I had been really fearful, I would have locked my doors, snuggled down, and waited for a police car to come along. For that strategy to work, you should always carry a blanket, food, and a candle in your car.

Has anyone read Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers? Kate is an outlier. She happened to have multiples at just the right time that people were interested in multiples. Had she had them in 2009 no one would care. She happened to marry someone passive which made their relationship interesting. Had she married her high school boyfriend no one would care. She happened to be a mean person who creates train wrecks and people happened to like train wrecks. Had she been nice no one would care. Gladwell suggests that most people end up successful by accident, right place right time right birthday, and she is one of them.

Cesspool Of Hate said...

I'm glad the pic/tweets are deleted too. It's admirable that you can admit and/or change things when they might be wrong or some of us feel uncomfortable (not sheeple, they don't like anything you do.)

Sheeple blogs still keep up the information and photos of private citizens because they don't like their views on Kate. They have no consideration how those posts affect the subjects or their families. They would never take them down because it might be admitting that maybe slamming them publicly on a blog (so when they google their own name it takes them to their blog) is hurtful and unnessessary. It's preventing some from getting jobs and others from moving forward. They show everyday who the real haters are and where the actual "Cesspool of Hate" resides on the internet.
