I know! I saw that, but I thought she got it from a tweeter who used it, who probably read it here. I didn't check the time on Kate's tweet.


&&&

Wow that expression really made the rounds today then. I had no idea Paradise was so, um, "loose."

I was in Paradise this morning, not too far from Intercourse!

Watching the show night. So far, yawn.

Suzy said...

Hope everyone is doing well today.

Okay, anyone figure out why in the world would 2 sick kids be watching the younger kids ANzd they offer to make dinner?!? Something's off. Plus you do not take a sick child to the dentist. Are they conganious by the way? These were strange comments she was tweeting today. A lot of stuff constraining each other.

From the previous post:

IMO, Kate's contradictory tweets insult her kids and her fans.
The sheeple will disagree and make up reasons, but that's what makes them sheeple.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Correct me if I'm wrong but mothers are supposed to cook for their sick kids. Why is Kate acting like she's the one suffering and needs a night off? Her kids are the ones who are ill. I get it, looking after sick kids is no picnic, but that's what all the other mothers do. It's part of the job description! Don't like it, you don't have to sign up.

Georgia Peach said...

Meant to add, they also make her sound stupid.

I notice that the happier Jon is, the more handsome he gets, must be so much stress gone from TFW idiotic lawsuit. And Liz looks naturally pretty, has such a fresh and natural look. As far as I know, no plastics or injections, no personal makeup artist, expensive hair, and she looks so much younger that TFW. Just my opinion.

Jeanne said...

I will read the updates but I cannot bring myself to watch Couples Therapy. Ick. I can't believe people do this show.

I just want to say about the antibiotics that at 13 yrs old some kids can swallow pills and some can't. It's very individualized. I learned pretty early but went to high school with kids who couldn't do it. I have no idea why there are 13 bottles. None of my addition works for that.

The twins can make dinner even though they're sick because Kate never eats what they eat anyway. She has no mothering instinct to make sick kids feel better. To her, her day WAS as hard as she tweeted and she deserves the night off. No thought of how hard it might be for sick kids to make dinner and take care of the "littles".

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Liz is a dead ringer for one of my best friends. She is genuine looking and just is one of those people that anyone would feel comfortable approaching, just like my friend. A welcoming personality. I hope she brings many positive things to the kids being in their lives.

Looks like they won't even get to jon tonight. But #couplestherapy is trending I on twitter

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Well, I don't know about you guys, with your dentist or orthodonist, but mine would have canceled the appointment or refused to see me if I were sick

&&&

Yes. Plus how uncomfortable for the poor child! If you're stuffy you'll have to breathe through your mouth with a bunch of instruments in it. If you're coughing leaning back like that in the chair probably makes it worse.

And, it's just freaking rude to take your sick kids out to public places unless you have to. She is NOT in a bind. This is not the one day off a year where she could possibly take care of this. She could take them ANY time or heaven forbid ask Jon to take them. Spare the dentist, the other kids, and the rest of the public the exposure to your germs. Be a considerate person for once.

Gayle said...

Paige tweeted earlierr about meeting TFW and another fan tweeted that she blew her chance to meet TFW at the LV marathon. TFW replied: @Kateplusmy8: @PatriciaChow1 @Paige_Kate8fan Argghh! Had you been at the finish line, I may have fallen on you! Omg I was half dead lol!

Wait, wait, wait! As I recall, she crossed the finish line fresh as a daisy and went right back to wearing heels. Are we to believe her latest revision of history or believe what we actually saw and heard? She really can't remember her lies.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I do like though that she scheduled these appointments on the weekdays. She doesn't work, and has all the time in the world to take care of these things on weekdays as long as the kids are off anyway.

If you don't WORK, it is just considerate to try to schedule appointments, shopping, and things of that nature on weekdays and save the weekends for those who do work and desperately need to squeeze in an appointment for the kiddos on limited weekend hours.

I remember Dmasy once talking about how she tries to schedule errands during the week and it strangely moved me. Lots of people do lots of big acts of kindness that we're very aware of, but it's the little things like that that go unrecognized yet help make the world go round. If everyone decided to just take care of things on the weekends cause that's the thing to do, the weekends would be even more of a packed nightmare than they already are.

That's a shame. What will the sheeple get all worked up about if he's not even on?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...


What school sports? Kids go back to school on Monday. There are varsity basketball games tomorrow, but not today. I seriously doubt that any of the 3rd graders are on the varsity team!

&&&

School sports are not just about games. She just said sports, not games. Surely there are practices before the game that are not public record? Our practice schedules were never made known except to those on the team and their families and even then sometimes we'd go off the schedule. Or does this public school advertise all their practices? Anyway I assume she meant practices.

Jeremy said...

Well, Jon was just in the previews of next weeks CT, and the clip was a therapy session about Liz's reaction to catching Jon masterbating. Kids will be so proud. I am disgusted by him.

Rhymes with Witch said...

You're also assuming that she is telling the truth


Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Eww Jeremy. Gross. What a mess, what a mess, what a mess, as Cody's grandmother from Country Boys would say.

I don't think I will even bother to recap this if Jon wasn't even on. Unless I feel like snarking this weekend. How did Farrah do? She's the one to watch.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Ha true! Well she could just say sports to mean she went to get Cara a new pair of socks for lacrosse. That's how much she lies. Or TWISTS. "Sports" could mean ANYTHING.

Tucker's Mom said...

I think we should collect hazard pay for Admin to recap CT.

lukebandit said...

Oh, how awful! Liz and Jon were sitting and talking, Liz was turned facing his side and Jon was looking ahead and Liz called him a P***Y!!! It is not puppy, I assure you. As soon as she said it, he took a drag off a cigarette.

THOSE POOR KIDS!!! I can't believe this.

If kate were ever brought into questioning for a crime that the police thought she was involved in, can you imagine the many different, twisted versions of her version of events that took place? She had to have known the kids were sick the night before! Then when you get up TFW you can very easily fix chicken noodle soup in the crock pot, even if it is canned. Add chicken that you have frozen in your freezer from leftover chicken that you have deboned. Add noodles when you come in, only takes about an hour to cook the noodles. Another crockpot with hot chocolate. Maybe grilled cheese, if they felt like eating those. I love to mix Campbell's Cream of Chicken and C Chicken Noodle Soup together.

Have plenty of Pedilite, popsicles and most of all LOVING CARE BY A LOVING MOM.

Oh, I forgot, you might have to trudge in the horrible ice and snow back to town to Target and buy a loving, caring Mom for your kids. They are on aisle 4. No batteries or assembly required.

Her crazy tweets are driving me nuts! The lying. is. what. gets. me.

We should at least chip in and get her an umbrella, raincoat, gloves and goulashes for the recap.

Dmasy said...

Admin, thank you. I am flattered that you remember what I said about weekday errands. I still try to make that my practice. The Saturday grocery store line is one person less.

Couples Therapy -- cringe worthy. Jon and Liz won't join the house until next week. They were seen in some quick preview clips. Suffice to say, they are not a classy couple. Another kind of "couch interview" -- Liz berates Jon and he talks about something the kids should never hear.

Count me in for next week!

lukebandit said...

I wonder if Jon told Robert about his experience on CT. I wonder if he told him what he said/she said.

When is the book coming out. We deserve an answer either way.

lukebandit said...

I forgot to add, I wonder what Robert thinks about Jon going on CT.

lukebandit said...

Isn't it strange that TFW is shuffling all the kids to the dentists, ortho and getting their meds while they are all sick and having to come home to cook dinner, but her girls feel bad for her doing it all and are going to cook dinner, WHILE Jon makes his debut on CT and what a debut it was!

Cursing, vulgar topics, destruction.

Her timing is impeccable to be doing it all for the kids while Jon is on CT acting like a nut.

THOSE POOR KIDS!

PatK said...

Let's put it this way. I know Jon does it, but I don't want to hear about it on tv. Eww.

Boy will this ever give the nutcase Jon hater sheeple more ammo.

True. but if they are not on the varsity basketball team, what are they practicing for?

abby said...

As a favor to me, and hopefully others, can we not go into vivid detail defending masturbation like was done while defending peeing outside?

Please. I implore us all! LOL

PA Dutch Mom said...

I didn't see Jon make his debut. I dozed for a bit, but didn't see him.

Speaking of acts of kindness, do we know who won her not-a-contest?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

&&&

I'm confused. There is sure a lot more to sports for kids other than varsity teams! Sports run year round in most areas, not just through schools but there's endless club teams. Just endless. You could go broke putting your child in club sports. There's aways something you could do sports wise, though it may not be 10 minutes away. In the winter it's often club basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, swimming, indoor football, hockey, etc. Any time you play it's called a practice. It's completely plausible to me the kids have sports opportunities/practices, I just don't know how much I believe they are allowed to take advantage of the numerous athletic activities out there.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Ugh, hazard pay please. I don't want to recap sex talk. Who would.

What happened to us? When did sex become something special and private between two people and something to share with the world? If your boyfriend masturbates, why can't you deal with it privately?

You know what? I remember that too, Admin. I think of it sometimes when I'm at the grocery store.

Nope, and in most states you are REQUIRED to make the names of the winners available. Another law potentially broken.

What's to stop Kate from not giving the prize to ANYONE and just telling everyone who entered sorry you lost thanks for playing? This is why the winners names must be made available.

They practice according to what they are playing in a particular season. Perhaps in public schools that have the sports you mentioned, they practice. However, at their school there is no football, no swimming, no volleyball, no hockey, no gymnastics, so I have no idea what they would be practicing right now. There is no indoor tennis or indoor lacrosse.

I just wonder how much of the nitty gritty details of their private lives actually happened, or if it's scripted and they were told to make it as graphic as is allowed on television -- all for ratings and drama. What I saw of the show was so bad, not even remotely interesting. Then again, it takes a lot to hold my interest in these darn reality shows.

Rhymes with Witch said...

I for one, have no interest in anyone's sex life but my own, which is private.
Tact and diplomacy, please.

I'm not sure that she knows either.

I think what Kate does in her blog posts and twitter could be called "mommy babble" which is kind of analogous to "psycho babble" but for mommies who are trying to sound like they are important and know what they're doing but.......

ncgirl said...

Kate addressed this in a tweet:

@Kateplusmy8 are the #bekindgetsigned winners posted yet?

'Friends'. The episode where Monica catches Chandler doing it while watching porn on tv and when she walks in on him he quickly changes the channel to a program about sharks, so Monica thinks sharks turn him on.

That's my guess. Next topic please.

I missed it, too. Did Liz actually come right out and say that she caught Jon being a master baiter?

You just know that Kate is going to bask in all of these "poor Kate" lamentations (is that the right word?) from her sheeple after this thing airs. They will all commiserate together.

Sleepless In Seattle said...

LOL!! Coming Soon? So are her inspirational posts on her blog from 2011.

Amy2 said...

Ewww. Some things should remain private.

Jeremy said...

are CT: they showed clips of next week, when Jon joins the house. Showed how excited the other housemates are that the J of J&K is there. Showed a therapy session. Liz ridiculed him. Cause that never happened in his marriage so he handled if well. They talk about her catching him enjoying himself and how upset she was. Therapist asks her why she didn't climb on instead of getting upset. How horrible for his children. No one can talk about Kate at the club getting her foot licked and then defend him on CT. They also showed the therapy excersiE of several couples smashing furniture and Jon talks about wasting 10 yeRs of his life. I'm sure his 9 year olds will love hearing that too. Even if they don't see the show. It will be a available on video forever. The show is already trending on twitter, TLC never had that exposure. And kate can throw it in his face, and to the kids, forever.

AuntieAnn said...

And it's no small thing either. Even if you enter a contest to win a chocolate bar the fine print is filled with regulations about who is eligible, how old you have to be, where it's prohibited...on and on. You need a magnifying glass to read them all in fine print.

Why does she always think rules don't apply to her?

OrangeCrusher1 said...

Oh please, she had a set back? She had plenty of time to square that nonsense contest away while her children were visiting their father after Xmas. Or while she tweeted away hours since then. Pathetic.

And while I have absolutely no interest in any details about Jon's intimate life with Liz, I will say he looks normal and happy in her company. As for Kate, has she even had a date since the divorce? They each may have a lot of problems, but only one is seriously screwed up IMO.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I missed it, too. Did Liz actually come right out and say that she caught Jon being a master baiter?

&&&

Are you sure she didn't mean he was caught looking at porn or something?

Nonetheless, ugh. Relationship issues are normal but it's not normal to tell the world. I don't even notice most people my age talking about sex at all, even with close friends. It's just private. With everything else about our lives that is so public these days, that's the one last thing we've kept relatively quiet and sacred.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

What does having no water (huh?) have to do with whether you can deliver on a contest like you promised?

She really needs to be careful with these not a contests. In some states they are considered contracts with the players, and if you don't deliver when and what you say you will, you could be in breach and potentially sued. Plus we know the kids, ALL the kids, were with Jon part of the break. Haul yourself awake at a decent hour one morning when you have the entire house to yourself and get your work done and out of the way then go on with your not-a-real-job life. Good grief how lazy can you be?

As so many have said she just likes the funs and games of things. She doesn't want to do the actual work. The fun was getting people in a tizzy about the contest and fawning over her grand idea, so that was easy for her to promote. The work of actually reviewing entry after tedious entry? She'll put that off as long as possible. Can you imagine if you just told your boss yeah sorry didn't get around to that project due DECEMBER 24 cause you know my kids were sick and I was out of water. You'd be fired. And yet she considers this her job.

Silly me. I didn't even think about "ped appt" meaning a trip to the doctor's. I thought it meant PEDICURE appt! Seriously.

Interesting you chose to bring up both the westboro church and phil Robertson today. This is why the DD clan is dangerous. They have supporters and fans like these.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I stopped worrying so much about Westboro when they came to something I was involved with to protest who even knows what. They never really explained. It was like 3 people and no one cared. Literally no one cared. They stood there whining for a few hours, the cops stood next to them more for their protection than anyone else, and then they left. It was truly nothing. They are a joke to most people. Actually they've oddly brought out the best in people. Photos of all the "angels" standing around whatever they are protecting are really moving. That's how it works. They have every right to stand there saying vile things, and others have every right to create a protective wall of angels around their targets. A free marketplace of ideas is what democracy is always about, even the most vile ones.

Fleecing The Sheeple said...

============

Did he say that he wasted ten years of his life (with his kids) or that he spent 10 years with Kate and for what? I only caught a snippet of it, and it sounded like he meant his marriage and being controlled. I think I'm going to wait and reserve judgement until I hear the context in which it was said.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Yeah I wonder about that wasted 10 years of your life comment. He could just mean he gave up a lot and put a lot on hold to get married to Kate so young. I have never heard him imply that the eight children that came out of that marriage are ever something he regrets. However, you have to be careful saying that because a kid could interpret it as directed at them when most parents would never dream of letting them think that. My friend who is divorced whenever asked always makes sure to say no I'm not upset or regretful. I have two beautiful children who are my life. Keeping it positive like that ensures kids won't feel like you regret them. They need some kind of therapist who is an expert on broken families who could help them learn to frame things in a manner that is positive for the kids.

Tammy said...

. It was truly nothing. They are a joke to most people.
)))))))))))

Were any of those Angels laughing? I don't think they are a joke to grieving families of dead soldiers. The Robertson have Westboro fans now? That is indeed frightening. Not amusing at all.

I think he wasted 10 years of his life comment might be in reference to how he was not himself and was a doormat and way too passive for the 10 years he spent with Kate.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

They are "a joke" is an expression meaning their views are not taken seriously by most people. No one was literally laughing at the protest I saw. I think what they do at funerals is horrific. Just horrific. Justice Alito was the lone dissenting opinion, and he agreed saying this: ""In order to have a society in which public issues can be openly and vigorously debated, it is not necessary to allow the brutalization of innocent victims like petitioner." 8 other justices, however, said they're allowed to do it by their interpretation of the law. Until we change our free speech laws or the whole basis on which this country was built, it will continue.

The school doesn't have football, swimming or volleyball at all? No hockey team either in chilly PA? That's sad. That would have eliminated four favorite sports at my school and left a lot of kids missing out.

In any case yes she did say school sports, so who knows. Maybe she's lying. I'd like to think the kids are actually involved in sports and on a regular basis, and more than just Cara. Sports, and music, were the best things that ever happened to me as a kid.

YES, nailed it! I detest most mommy blogging. Of all the Mommy blogs out there, there are probably only a dozen of them even worth the time of day. What happened is that there were a few good Mommy blogs out there and then everyone thought they could do it too.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Watched the extended preview of the season. Unless I missed it, I don't see anywhere that they are talking about Jon masturbating. Liz mumbled that he had slept with other people and he was in bed with someone. It's bad enough, no reason to hear things that never were said.

The therapist got it though, she said Jon is still rebelling against Kate even in his relationships. I think that's true.

Also I think Taylor is a flat out liar about her deceased husband.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Jon was also really, really upset when he said he wasted 10 years. Like in flat out tears. Whatever the context, he was deeply emotional over it. He wasn't messing around.

For all we know he was talking about the media and public eye in general, signing up for all this.

Rhymes with Witch said...

~~~~~~~~~~
You did miss it. No one used the word masturbate. Jon used the phrase ''beat it'', and Liz got angry when she discovered him...then the therapist asked why she didn't join him. So...things WERE said, just not the specific word masturbate.

Think About The Kids said...

It doesn't matter what anyone here thinks he meant by his wasted 10 years comment. It matters what his children think. And if anyone thinks that comment doesn't have the potential to harm his children, you are in denial. He should never have said that on national television.

url/URL said...

So...things WERE said, just not the specific word masturbate.
___________________________________________

And.....this is supposed to be in better form? 'Beat it'? My god. Those poor kids DO have to go to school and face their peers. This is just BEYOND crazy. How does Jon figure those kids will be 'private' when he puts his sex habits out there in the public?

AND this season of CT was trending of twitter?? Heaven help those kids. Jon's playing right into Kate's hands. Idiot! This is indefensible.

Jon and Liz appear to be the draw of the show, holding them off till the end. What I did see is a very crass Liz. Classless women don't do much for me. I wouldn't want my kids around a woman who behaves like that.

OT we recently saw movie Don John with Joseph Gordon-Leavitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza. The lead character is addicted to porn, but you do not see a lot of porn. There are discussions about porn. The story is very good, acting very good, really good film.
I forgot CT was on, but no problem, vh 1 generally reruns everything multiple times.

Happy New Year!

People were saying wait to see, wait to see...there is no such thing as a "classy" "reality" show on VH1. TLC can't even deliver! There was NO WAY they wouldn't air the salacious, the tacky and "the nasty". It's allll that sells with these types of shows. We know it, Jon knows it, his girlfriend knows it, whether it's staged or not. And he wanted to shed that dirtbag label? What's this going to accomplish? Just like Kevin O'Leary likes to say--MOOONEEEYYY. Hope it's worth it.
And don't tell me they won't be running to Google to read anything and everything that's being said about them. Talk about depressing!!

TLC stinks said...

Probably Jon meant wasting 10 years of his life MARRIED to a monster. I don't believe he regrets his children, probably that he was tricked into having so many. It's a shame he signed up (with Liz) to appear on a trashy TV show. He's either desparate for money or needs an ego boost. Why can't he just be a classy person with a classy girlfriend?

ITA Kate shared her tweets as an overworked single mom to rile up her fans while Jon is on TV. Typical manipulation of the facts. The woman has HELP. What a freakin' liar.

Both parents are a hot mess. The kids will be a hot mess if not already. It's so embarrassing this is all playing out publicly.

And Robert, I do not know what is going on, but there is absolutely no LEGAL reason why you are not providing an update on your book. Frankly, this is unprofessional. Not impressed. I was hoping we could finally get a fact filled, well-written book on this debacle. Your silence is suspicious.

About the not-a-contest winners...TFW's delay of the whole thing gives you a little peek into her soul, in my opinion. Going over heartwarming stories and pictures of random acts of kindness, for me, would be a pleasurable and inspiring experience, not a chore. Especially as it seemed like a holiday/end-of-year gratitude exercise. But TFW's making it sound as if it's just another thing on her neverending to-do list: "pick up antibiotics, photograph antibiotics for Twitter, judge stupid contest,..." Oh, and having sick 13-year-olds cooking dinner
for their poor mother? Parentification at its finest.

@davidgoehring1 hahahah I don't know! I've been SO bored, that I can't be bothered deciding which knitting project to start #hahaha #Iwish

Which is it, Kate? BORED or BUSY? Looks like she can't decide or is lying. BTW, if the kids are sick, why are they doing sports? Ped appointment? Her toes are very important! Ha. Know way to know the truth. Why are there 13 bottles of the same medicine?

TLC stinks said...

Fan asked if she was taking the kids to the PA Farm Show this week. Kate tweets:

@NoraSaysNo no. I went every year as a kid -- would be fun but no can do :(

Has she ever taken the kids there? Ever?

Geez, what's to say Mady and others of the kids might not sneak and watch this show on TV like Mady said she did Kendra's? Jon's solo activity should NOT be on national TV.

oh, and with regard to Hannah's Lego masterpiece, it's not too good IMO and surely they must have 'bodies' among all the Lego the kids reportedly have? Why post that?

getofftwitter said...

Admin: there was a lot of clips they showed, for this show during the commercials. I think there was a clip of Jon, smashing furniture and saying maybe 10 years of a (swear word) perfection, something about everything has to be perfect, and for what! and another of him saying something about the marriage & putting up with 10 years of crap or something like that, they did the clips fast. They were giving you a little peek. The Home & what ever Hallmark channel show,(today at 10am central, Comcast 131) Kate was on, it's the Kate doubleheader, surprised that her lackeys have not posted about it.

Well, Jon was just in the previews of next weeks CT, and the clip was a therapy session about Liz's reaction to catching Jon masterbating. Kids will be so proud. I am disgusted by him.

Oh, how awful! Liz and Jon were sitting and talking, Liz was turned facing his side and Jon was looking ahead and Liz called him a P***Y!!! It is not puppy, I assure you. As soon as she said it, he took a drag off a cigarette.

THOSE POOR KIDS!!! I can't believe this.
--------------------------------------------------
Lovely! Total snark. I expected more out of Jon, but once again, his head has spinned in a different direction. Kind of like a broken compass. Buy a new one Jon!

Jeremy 49- They also showed the therapy excersiE of several couples smashing furniture and Jon talks about wasting 10 yeRs of his life. I'm sure his 9 year olds will love hearing that too.

Umm, why did he do this trash show? Help a girl out.

: ) 99.9 % of the time, Kate is doing her Pedicure apptmts. Looks like she squeezed the pediatrician in for the .01% remaining time.

My apologies for stacking comments, but trying to catch up without creating multiple posts. I would also like to add that I am obviously very ignorant of the "Walt history" so if his comment towards Admin was derogatory, my apologies.

For the NE folks, what a snowfall! Be careful, very slippery out there with the very low temperatures!

Or a hazmat suit?

Yes. So funny. My aunt has a business that makes hazmat suits and coverings. I could grift you a suit and maybe a backup, just in case. But, she is not one of my favorite aunts. lol

Watching Home and Family. The counselor on CT is on this morning and she was going to answer questions from viewers. Then they said that CT debuted last night and that they had a clip. I gasped! Then the told the hosts in their ears that they didn't have the clip. Then they were saying, Oh, we don't have the clip. Then they went on to answer questions from viewers.

I also agree about Roberts book. I wonder if TFW had anything to do with it not being published. We deserve an answer! Either way, Print or Not to Print. That is the question!

On the Today Show this morning they showed amateur made videos for the Superbowl for Doritos. The winning video will be shown on the Superbowl. The budgets for the videos range from 300 to 5K. The funniest one to me is the one with the ostrich! I lol so hard. It was made for only 800 dollars. I guess the big high price ad agencies are cringing in their boots! They looked just like a normal ad.

I don't see that anyone said it doesn't have that very potential. That's what the whole conversation was about.

Farrah actually has gone to therapy before, a real therapist. It didn't do much. She really is so mentally ill though she may be beyond help. She is most likely a raging narcissist, maybe even a sociopath. In many ways she's worse than Kate in the sense that at least Kate manages to take care of the kids and look after the house and more or less be responsible, even if she relies heavily on passing off the duties on someone else. And she has her moments where she is kind to her fans even if it's fake. Farrah is just a fart in the wind totally inept and irresponsible. Every word out of her mouth is designed to hurt someone else. With Kate you worry the kids will be messed up, but with Farrah you wonder if her child will even SURVIVE.

Nonetheless, ugh. Relationship issues are normal but it's not normal to tell the world.
-----------------
Amen, but neither of these 2 have stopped with notions of reality TV, interviews, appearances, etc. Sell you soul to the devil, while you have 8 kids. It is not going to come out well with either of these 2 at the helm.
They both need to get NON CAMERA therapy, but not interested, as they will not make any money doing so.

Sorry but the "wasted 10 years" comment was not okay, IMO. I know he is referring to the 10 year marriage, but it is an immature, selfish comment. A lot of us have had bad experience, but we learn and move on. No pass for Jon, as he chose to go on TV (yet again)) and I don't think the term "wasted," was a good choice of words. Kids were all conceived during this period.

Why are either of these 2 on RTV after all of these years? Seriously. Move on with your lives. Selfish egotistical parents.

And.....this is supposed to be in better form? 'Beat it'? My god. Those poor kids DO have to go to school and face their peers. This is just BEYOND crazy. How does Jon figure those kids will be 'private' when he puts his sex habits out there in the public?

AND this season of CT was trending of twitter?? Heaven help those kids. Jon's playing right into Kate's hands. Idiot! This is indefensible.

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

I couldn't agree more and it's just as I thought. No shame, no restraint, no class. He bemoans Kate's penchant for twitter and making the kids' lives public but he goes on t.v. to discuss his masturbation practices? That's better?

What has become of our society that this type of exploitation is considered "entertainment" and worthy of our attention?

How long before our citizenry is made completely up of souless, lying, throwing loved ones under the bus for any amount of money, fame whores?

I didn't think it was possible but my heart just broke even more for those kids. Sad, sad, sad.

-------------------------------
I'm going to take a stab and say no, they've never been there. It's crowded and smelly. It's also a uniquely wonderful PA experience, rich in history.

The Farm Show would have been a very interesting and educational trip while filming are show. I would bet 10 failed Love is in The Mix cookbooks that TLC tried to make this happen and Kate refused. Not fancy or exclusive enough for her. Not to mention that closing it down for them to film would never happen.

Layla said...

Kate tweeted that she can't take the kids to the PA farm show? Are you kidding me? I have gone many times with my own large family, even when many of the kids were small, and had a great time. Her kids aren't even little anymore, so it's not like they'll get lost. What, is she worried that there will be paps there? HA! It's a farm show. They have livestock there. You watch the horses and the dogs herding sheep (my kids' favorite since we have Aussies). Eat way too much in the food court area, check out crafts. It's good, wholesome fun and there's no reason (other than laziness) why she shouldn't take the kids.

I don't get her tweets from yesterday at all. The kids were sick (she even said on NYE that some had fevers) so she dragged them out to the dentist, orthodontist, pediatrician, etc? The peds appointment was probably a sports physical for Cara, so she threw in the school sports thing to make it look like she was busier than she really was. And then she was so exhausted from her drive in the snow to the pharmacy that the sick, feverish twins had to cook dinner and watch the little ones. She needs to get over herself. Try navigating the DC beltway in rush hour traffic in the driving snow like I did yesterday, and then she has grounds for complaint.

Carole said...

Oh please, she had a set back? She had plenty of time to square that nonsense contest away while her children were visiting their father after Xmas.

**

Especially since it wasn't a *contest* (per TFW herself). And, since it wasn't a contest that means it must be a random drawing, right? And, if it's just a random drawing then what in the heck takes so long to put your hand into a pile of names/pics and pull out a few?

Just like with everything she does, there's little follow through, no priority put on it - especially if it has to do with her fans, and just because she's masterminded something, it doesn't mean it'll hold her attention for long.

It's typical Kate. Anything different would be unexpected.

I don't think he could have changed this month, he's probably always been like this. I seem to recall him being described as the really cool biker guy, too cool for school. Bad boy. With another girl he left for Kate.

Listen, she picked him. Surely she knew who he was before she married him. I think in her younger days she liked it, it was exciting. Now that she's grown up, *cough*, it is a nuisance.

Actually I really think she'd still be married to him to this day if he had just gone along with all her plans to exploit the children to death. I firmly believe that. She left the guy because he wanted to stop her gravy train, period. His bad behavior that she had no problem with before suddenly was a convenient excuse to tell the public why it was over.

Good grief, Kate just tweeted that she loves living in a farming community. Of course, it's because her farmer neighbor plowed her driveway for her, but didn't she complain about living in a farming community on one of the RV episodes? It was where they were doing laundry and she said she wanted to move to Wyoming, and that she asks herself every day why she lives in PA, if you've seen one farm, you've seen them all. And she constantly complains about the snow and cold. Now she says she loves it because she got something out of it. She'll go back to hating it tomorrow, I'm sure.

Carole said...

How did Farrah do? She's the one to watch.


Admin, if you believe the tabloids about Farrah, the boyfriend was a sham... someone who agreed to play her BF on the show to earn some money. If you watch CT with that in mind, Farrah's scenes are cringe worthy, pathetic, LOL acting.

I can understand this. The kids aren't feeling well. I wouldn't drive an hour one way to the Farm Show in sub-zero temperatures with sick children They should be home resting right now, not walking around in a crowd at the exhibits. The kids have school next week, and that leaves only next Saturday. Maybe that's their day with Jon.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

It's always struck me as odd where she chose to live because most of her interests seem to be city girl, Hollywood type interests. Strange. Why not move closer to NYC or LA? My best guess is TLC had a big hand in deciding where they would move.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

There are so many ethical regulations for the mentally ill, especially protecting their privacy. Yet there's no ethical code for reality T.V. It's this uncharted area that no one seems to be taking seriously. In any other context it would be deplorable to exploit the mentally ill, but on T.V. society has sort of accepted it as par for the course. What happened?

snowbird said...

It doesn't matter what anyone here thinks he meant by his wasted 10 years comment. It matters what his children think. And if anyone thinks that comment doesn't have the potential to harm his children, you are in denial. He should never have said that on national television.
____

I'm with the others and am withholding my opinion of Jon's statement until I can understand the context in which it was made. I think it's so wrong to judge one sentence without knowing the whole story.

***

What I did see is a very crass Liz. Classless women don't do much for me. I wouldn't want my kids around a woman who behaves like that.
____

I don't know Liz but I don't think it's fair to judge someone as classless and not want them around children from a few snippits of edited tv. I agree that she used crass language, but how do we know whether or not she is a great parent, very loving, caring, warm, a hard worker, good citizen, and responsible? SMH at how quickly judgements are to often made on people's character or fitness to parent with almost no info.

I makes me very sad that people are judging others based on so little and in this case, what is seen was edited and manipulated for the greatest impact to cause conflict/interest. Maybe it will turn out that many first impressions were accurate but jumping to conclusions isn't fair to anyone. I thought this group of non-fans waited to learn all the facts before passing judgement. Perhaps I was wrong.

I was the one who had to navigate the DC beltway traffic yesterday. I hate driving on the beltway anyway, but rush hour and blinding snow just make it a nightmare. I hope the weather is clear while you're here. I have to say, I love the perks of living close to DC and Baltimore. We can go to the theater, the ballet, the restaurants any time, but after battling the traffic and crowds, there's something so soothing about going up to PA. DH has family there, and there is one "family house" that is used by all of us as a weekend getaway. DH swears that his blood pressure drops 10 points every time he crosses the PA border. He is a type-A personality, always on the go, sleeps 4-5 hours a night, but in PA he even takes naps. Heavenly!

The same thing was said about Jon--that he was "shopping around" for a girlfriend. And, that he wanted Hailey because of the ratings. Since the clip showed Liz saying he had moved someone else in (that's what I heard, anyway), maybe they weren't together when the opportunity came up.

I agree. I think sociopath more than narcissist tho.
I noticed when Farrah was on Bethanny a couple of months ago, right before doing CT (basing this timing opinion on the way her lips looked that day when she said she'd just had them done. lol) that she'd obviously had a LOT of intensive media training. She's changed her whole demeanor (or tried hard to), her manner of speaking, her diction, even her choice of words. The change is startling and dramatic - totally different from her Teen Mom days and not typical of the way a 22 yr old speaks. She is scary. She tried sooooo hard on Bethanny to stick to her new image / script of a single woman enterpreneur but she couldn't pull it off. The look in her eyes when Bethanny challenged her was frightening. I really worry about her daughter Sophia, not just with Farrah's temper but also the crazy ideas she has of parenting. I think she's never more than a split second away from losing her temper and hurting someone if provoked.

I'm confused. What ratings? For CT? Jon made it perfectly clear in the interview what he thinks of Hailey, so I don't believe that having her on the show would ever fly. It's just too far-fetched for anyone to believe that they were back to being a couple, no matter how good the acting or scripting might be.

Snowbird, I get what you are saying, but there is something "not right" when Jon and Liz agree to participate in a so-called reality show that makes them appear crass and classless for MONEY. If either one of them had any intention of just living their lives quietly, the appearance on this show blows that up. Once again Jon cannot let the fame go away and his girlfriend is right there beside him just like Halley, etc. We bitch and moan about Kate and her "friends" who end up getting recognition through their association with Kate, but isn't this the same with Jon? Jon has been quiet, I totally believe, because of some legal settlement with TLC and now that the time constraint has passed, he is showing us the same ol' Jon who loves attention and the money. Other than he appears to relate better to his kids than Kate, they tasted fame and are addicted. I don't ever want to defend Kate, but I kind of get her frustration with him as the breadwinner before TLC. Seems to have been rather spoiled and not very mature so I suspect Kate realized that to achieve her financial goals, she had to plot some "hook" to make money. Jon may feel he wasted 10 years with his marriage but I seriously doubt he would trade that for the money he made and the fame he has achieved.

TLC stinks said...

Vanessa, you and I are on the same page regarding Jon and this show.

URL said...

My opinion of Liz is that she is a classless, possibly low self esteem woman with her pussy comment and Jon's masturbating and frankly Jon picking up and sleeping with women after a short break in their relationship is disgusting. I don't know why she is still with him. It appears when a relationship isn't going as planned with Jon's current girlfriend, the girlfriend has to endure a lot of garbage. He has two daughters who are 13 years old. One has already indicated that she has watched Kendra and I have to believe these girls will also have access to watch him on this show. It's just a disaster for these kids.

Radar also had an article regarding Farrah faking the entire boyfriend relationship because she just wanted the money to get on the show. Pretty pathetic, but not surprising.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Farrah has a strange utter lack of eye contact and very stilted body language. It's unsettling to say the least. If you google her name and sociopath it's crazy how many people are saying the same thing.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

If you read the article you would see the guy said he never signed anything. The paperwork would be done when he got to LA. So no, it's not a breach of contract issue. It's blackmail.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Jon said he and Liz were doing it to try to make it work after their split. I don't get where the sham is in that. Unless similar paperwork emerges like in Farrah's case, that's a pretty wild and baseless accusation.

I agree with snowbird about how you need the full context to be fair. For instance reports of Jon tearing up a room turned out just to be a therapeutic exercise everyone was required to do. However, on the other hand he of all people should know that a trashy reality show is only going to take bits and pieces of what you said and spin it in a way that is as controversial as possible. So to sign on to something that will do that to you and you have no editorial control is IMO extremely reckless.

And I was behind him all the way when he wanted a private life, that he regretted the show yada yada yada. I was judging him there too, I gave him kudos etc. I can't grasp why he'd take this on after the hell he went through with TLC and everything else. And again, you air your sh*t, expect backlash and opinions and judgement. Also, I think I mentioned in a previous post, you can blame "editing" (just like tfw) but they can't edit what you "don't" give them.

The Governor of Minnesota just ordered all schools and kid's activities closed on Monday. The temperature is predicted to have a low of -30 F to a high of -15 F. The wind chills will reach -50 F. At this temp, exposed skin will freeze solid in a few seconds; you can't leave a 1-inch gap between your hat and scarf to see through because your eyes will freeze. School buses will not even start.

Hotels, churches, and even some shopping centers will house the homeless that overflow the shelters because it will be deadly to remain outside for any length of time. Neighbors, friends, even strangers will gladly offer refuge if our heat or electricity goes out, and we gladly offer the same. This is where Minnesota Nice really comes in handy!

************
It's the thing now to have your hay certified as organic. My family does this and makes more money when selling it. Animals have to eat certified organic hay in order for the animal products to be considered organic, just as with feed.

It's kind of a pain to get certified, because of the records to be presented, but anyone who makes less than a certain amount from selling can say they are organic without being certified.

Despite Milo's claim of Kate's supposed special marvelous neighborly ways, that is how it works between land owners in any rural area. I can guarantee that Kate is reaping a financial benefit by leasing the hay fields/crop to the neighbor, even if minimal - the farmer plowing is the one who should be praised because he is being the "nice guy" in the neighborhood, that's just how it's done. :)

Was she "caught" again in 2013 for those offenses?

lukebandit said...

On the Facebook page, A Minor Consideration, Paul Peterson wrote this and it is wonderful!!! I don't know how to link that post to this blog so I brought it all here. hope this is ok.




A Simple Start…

I never got to go to Summer Camp because I was working on The Donna Reed Show (age 12 to 20). One day my neighbors who served the Gardena/Carson YMCA asked my wife, Rana Platz-Petersen, RN, to volunteer as a Camp Nurse in the YMCA facility in the San Bernardino mountains (Camp Whittle and Camp Round Meadow). Rana had never been to camp either, so the two of us got our Background Check and Fingerprints done and prepared for eight days in the mountains…she as Camp Nurse, me as a “Senior Counselor,” Uncle Paul some thirty years older than other “counselors.”


I meant to change the world. Imagine what I could do with eight days in close association with my wards, none of them kid actors.
There were fights and conflicts those first two days. Kids from our neighborhood, I found, did not have the tools for civilized behavior. They fought over pathway rights, places at the meal tables, even their places in the meal-time line-ups outside the chow-house. It seemed more than I could deal with.

Rana counseled me to get down to basics. Boiling down the lesson I learned, here’s what I discovered: When all else fails do your best to impart the following “short list” to kids: Teach them how to say “Please” and “Thank You.” Show them how painless it is to say, “Excuse Me” and “I’m Sorry.”


Four little things, I know, but crucial to civilized behavior.
After eight days our kids ceased fighting over crowded paths. Food was happily shared at table. The rough-and-tumble of crowded living conditions turned into generosity and forgiveness…and non-confrontational cooperation.

On the seventh day a nine year-old added to my list by explaining the additional value of saying, “You’re Welcome.”
Thank You. Please. Excuse Me. I’m Sorry.
Late in the week an under-sized eight-year old boy who shared my breakfast table had an accident…spilling his grape juice over our pancakes. His cowering look of fear stabbed deep into my heart for it was plain he had been harshly disciplined for this sort of minor accident in the home he came from. I quickly said, “Hey, wait a sec. Maybe you invented something.”


We both dug into our sopping pancakes, newly bathed in grape juice, and you know what? They were delicious! In seconds eight tables of eight young campers duplicated our happy accident…and a boy who’d been abused at home felt like a champion at the YMCA camp.


How little it takes to admit to past accidents we’ve all suffered. Who hasn’t spilled a drink?
You can fixate on clumsiness or you can take advantage of God’s unexpected gift. Believe me, the pancakes tasted great, and the relief on that small boy’s face when laughter replaced physical punishment was worth every day on the mountain. The added lesson I learned and cherished for the next seven years of volunteering at Y-Camp is to say “You’re Welcome” when even the smallest child thanks you for caring…and know that you mean it.

lukebandit said...

That story that Paul mentioned about the boy spilling grape juice by accident and turned those lemons into sweet lemonade, reminded me of what my dad did when I was a kid.

We were all starving one day and my mom was busy as a bee fixing cheeseburgers, all the fixings, French fries, side dishes. The smells were wonderful. My dads mother was there and she was starving too. My mom finally got it all on the table and we all sit down ready to eat and my brother who was about 5 or 6 accidently knocked over his glass of milk.

My dad went ballistic. He stood up and got his hand and arm and slung the food, everything off the table unto the floor. We all just sit there stunned. One of many. After all that hard work that my mom did to get it on the table and my mother was very sick. She has had cystitis since she was a teenager and has been in severe pain for decades and does not use pain meds. Then she had to clean it up and make bologna sandwiches for us to eat. My grandmother was so angry that she called one of her daughters to come and get her.

I told my mom that what you should of done was got the keys, me, my brother and my grandmother and we should of left and went to town to the dime store and ate.

Formerly Duped said...

Great article by Paul Petersen, thanks for posting.

I notice TFW makes the kids say thank-you for every single thing, which is fine, but makes you wonder if it's part of the adoration and compliments she insists upon. Remember Mady reading the hidden card on the show saying "we appreciate the delicious meals you make" or the like? Later she said she hated eggs!

I also noted TFW thanked some salespeople or tour guides etc but never looked them in the eye.I find that quite rude and demeaning .

Actually I think that's exactly what happened. Being married for ten years to a manipulating shrew from PA with the mindset of a tweenie and an egg fetish is enough to drive anyone batshit crazy.

But that was then and this is now. He came out on top of Kate's featherbrained lawsuit. He got employment outside the business of reality tv and he entered into a relationship with someone who appears to be fairly stable. So in the end I agree with Vanessa. What he's doing now is all on him.

rainbowsandunicorns said...

ROL has an article about stars who have been BUSTED in big lies. I thought maybe Kate would have been included, given her "good bra" fib (great pun), but nope, nothing.

I agree with the posters who commented that in regards to Jon and his disclosures, I'd rather wait and see exactly what was said before I pass judgment. Things are often taken out of context, such as his smashing up the room when others were encouraged to do the same. If, on television, he discussed his self-enjoyment, then (in my opinion) it's disgusting. I almost typed, "If Jon discussed his masterbating on television," and then realized it would have been a horrible misplaced modifier!

Layla said...

I have to agree with those who are disgusted with Jon for appearing on something so trashy. Between this show and his last interview, he just comes off as crass and opportunistic. He should have stayed private, passed up interviews and definitely passed on that awful show. The whole Jon and Kate saga is just so sordid on both sides. There is so much negativity and vindictiveness and ugliness involved with them that it makes you just grimace when either name comes up these days.

Let's hope neither one of them is holding out for reality TV as a career (okay, we know Kate is), because there are no positive connotations attached to either of their names. Time for both to fade away into obscurity and hang onto whatever dignity they have left, if any, for their kids' sake. Kate says everything she does is for her kids. Well, how about stopping the humiliation they have to be experiencing from their parents' behavior?

I think that enough stories about the unbelievably restrictive contracts signed for reality tv have come out that it seems a bit like selling your life away.

If it's on her property, kate will consider it hers whether or not she actually profits from the sale of the hay. She wants credit because it's organic. Farmers are a pretty savy bunch.

***

Profit? Kate doesn't sell the hay. It's a trade with the farmer who plows the driveway in the winter and takes care of the fields for her, which is where the hay comes from. The previous owners established this deal with the farmer and J&K said on one of the shows that it was a nice trade. Since they weren't using the fields for anything anyway and the farmer was doing them a favor by mowing the fields for them it benefited them both. I think the farmer also helps them with any egg overproduction when needed, too but I'd imagine she'd be paid for whatever was sold in his organic market/stand.

In our town you have to have your tree out on the roadside by your regular garbage collection day for pick-up. Some people go away for New Year's so maybe they take it down early? I agree it's kind of a waste but I still prefer a real tree since they are grown on tree farms and are returned to the soil. Still. I try to get 5 weeks' worth out of ours.

AuntieAnn: I get post-Yuletide blues, too. I find if I buy something for next Xmas like clearance wrapping paper or cards I feel better, knowing Xmas WILL come again lol. I also allow snowmen and other wintry themes to continue in home decor, socks, candles etc. I'm a case!

#####

Perhaps they bought it and set it up a few weeks before Thanksgiving (since Thanksgiving was so late this year), and they were tired of it by the time Christmas rolled around. It happens. Sometimes, too, if the tree wasn't freshly cut when they bought it, it isn't going to last. It's better to dispose of it than have it around the house and have to clean up needles. Often, too, it's tradition in the family to put up the tree Thanksgiving night (or the day after) and take it down the day after Christmas, just like your tradition is keeping it up until January 6. It's what works for them.

I've had live trees that absolutely refused to drink water. Instead of dropping needles, they petrified (like fossils). You couldn't pull off the needles. Those things would have stayed in the same condition until Easter and they looked like artificial trees.

Somewhere In Time said...

I don't know who she follows because I don't have twitter and can't see it. She does correspond with Deanna. In fact, she just tweeted her to find out where she is. Of course, Gladys always has her nose in Kate's business and worms her way in to Kate's conversations with other "celebrities," tweeting them about how utterly (udderly?) fabulous Kate is...

------------------------------
It sounds fair to me. I have about 2.5 acres of hay ground. Years ago my neighbor would cut and bale for me and keep half for doing it. I would sell the other half. It added to his supply for his dairy cows and it kept my fields trimmed instead of overgrowing with weeds.

The last few years the quality of my "hay" has gone downhill. Another neighbor is now baling it up for his horses for free so it keeps the weeds down for me. I think I win because I have never had to buy tractor, hay mower, hay rake, hay baler, hay wagon.

We took down our decorations NY day, BUT, I did a bit of holiday decoration shopping after Xmas, when it all goes on sale 75% off, so we're opening boxes like it's Christmas Day here tonight!

Thanks for the reminder! Some of our stores are having 90% off sales this weekend. There are often some really nice things left. You can't pass up a deal like that, especially on wrapping paper.
