Kate and the twins on The View

After their disastrous appearance on Today, what will their second spot of the morning look like?

The taping for The View must have gone much better, since Kate is tweeting to her fans to watch.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Why would Jon give up whatever to let them film then go around saying very clearly, as recently as a few days ago on Wendy Williams, he would fight any attempts by Kate to garner another reality show for the children? To massive applause I might add.

Sheep when coming up with a good deflection, at should at least make some sense.

localyocul said...

Is the view live today?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

They didn't necessarily tell the officer (or master or judge whoever) that it was in exchange for anything. They could just agree on it. That's how it went down with us in PA. I did agree to a slightly lower amount than that calculated to give him a break.

&&&

Oh I believe you but the judge still had to make a best interest finding. So if you agreed on some number that wasn't in the child's best interest the judge won't approve it. IF the judge gets a whiff there is some kind of back door shady exchange going on, he wouldn't approve it.

The bottom line whatever the situation for the Gosselins, the judge was obviously comfortable with making this finding whether the parties agreed or disagreed with it. Agreement is actually rather irrelevant only so far as it affects whether someone is going to fight it. The concern of the judge is that the children are secure and being provided for, and if that is being done, then best interest is satisfied.

Kate Gosselin‏@Kateplusmy84 mins
@MiloandJack @theviewtv oh yeah, they were awake and ready to go! They LOVE The View ladies! Got to meet them and 'hang out' prior! 👍

&&&&&&&&

Oh, I bet they WERE awake by that taping.

Here's the sheeple spin:

@Kateplusmy8 @MiloandJack @theviewtv So glad they took the time to make them comfortable before filming!

It was Savannah's fault! The video from outside the window shows the girls were plenty comfy before Kate clapped or snapped at M

OrangeCrusher1 said...

Thank you east coasters for watching and reporting as this unfolds. There is no way it could have gone worse, especially after happying up the girls in the limo ride post Today show; the fact remains this poor excuse for a mother is trotting her children out to talk about their parents' divorce and allow her to grift a new tv show. That is all any of this is about and it is disgusting.

PatK said...

Kate Gosselin‏@Kateplusmy81m
Watching together...the little kids are SO excited to see their big sisters on @theviewtv !!! :) #noschooltoday #MLK pic.twitter.com/BbJVMTTwI4

Now there's no doubt it my mind it went better. LOL

JoyinVirginia said...

Last thread, there was post talking about children from a NYC public school were on set Thursday taping MLK Day musical tribute, it was on teachers Facebook page. So I am assuming they taped Thursday

That's true. If the mom had no job and the dad were rich I can't see him approving of zero.

silimom said...

Re: the Radar article - I know that a judge has the ultimate decision regarding child support, but my theory has always been Kate agreed to no child support because as the parent with a higher income/assets, she was in a position to have to pay Jon child support once it was established with the court that he could not find work in his previous field, I.e. television, and command the salary he once had.

As for legal custody, that was determined back in 2009/2010 when the divorce was first finalized, as was his initial support obligation. The change to child support didn't happen until later. Kate always had the right to have the children filmed.

Ultimately, as Jon has said, his kids know the truth and so does he and that's all that matters.

chefsummer said...

Stupid auto correct.

I mean should it be Kate's job to make the twins feel comfortable and not strangers.

stacyintx said...

Watching The View now. In the corner it says previously recorded. The panel was discussing words they don't like people to use and Barbara said she can't stand when people use the word like all the time. She's in for a treat with Kate. They are on next.

Marie said...

Wow. Do the littles get to see the twins throw daddy under the bus this morning?

Marie

chefsummer said...

Looks like Kate is doing all the talking and kiss her twins a$$.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Ha, Whoopie told them DON'T LOOK AT KATE and after that they did a bit better and relaxed when they didn't have to answer to Kate.

Ha go Mady she sad look I was really little during the divorce I never saw anything upsetting and I saw both my parents I'm fine. YOU GO GIRL. Kate tries to paint a picture like Jon f-ed them up and it's simply not true.

Vanessa said...

Of course there's nothing "off limits" as far as what they discuss.
OH! SNAP!! There's the damage control!! Mady "you ruined my dramatic silence!!"
Excuse me while I go wash my eyeballs out
Wow, trained monkeys

Vanessa said...

Of course! Pukebook plug

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Wow they could't lie about seeing Jon. Kate wanted them to say they didn't see him and THEY WOULND'T LIE.

Vanessa said...

That was so planned. so so planned. She's the expert at lying by omission, she told them to do exactly that!

stacyintx said...

A complete puff piece. I did like when Mady said the divorce didn't affect them because they still saw both parents.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

It was a good minute before the twins first spoke. It wasn't until Whoopie told them to stop looking to Kate for direction and just answer the questions did they loosen up. It's like they needed permission not to turn to Kate.

Then Whoopie asked age appropriate questions about bands they like. Whoopie did a good job making them comfortable under Kate's control. I like Whoopie.

JudyK said...

This was obviously taped Thursday or Friday...same outfits for all as on TODAY.

Wow is all I can say. More relaxed interview because they asked them kid stuff and told them not to look at their Mom. So SAD in the end when asked if they still see their Dad and Mady looked at her Mom and just said, "Ummm"...wonder where she picked that up. Cara said nothing. At that point, the interview ended. Despicable.

Radar Online has an article today saying the twins have not seen Jon in 9 months...nice way to poison your kids minds, Kate. And I bet they haven't seen their grandparents in YEARS.

Anonymous said...

Once again, Kate did most of the talking. and once again, the twins wouldn't throw their father under the bus.

Alberta Girl said...

So the miserable bitch had the 6 lined up so they could hear how annoying they were to their older sisters.

Un-frigen-believable!

DanielleB said...

I am almost on the verge of tears!! I CANNOT believe that bitch! When they asked if the girls see their father, and Mady just went "umm", and Barbara said "That's almost my answer", Kate couldn't have been more thrilled. That was beyond ridiculous for her to encourage her kids to throw Jon under the bus like that. All I can say is I hope those girls start realizing the truth before it's too late.

And it does seem to me that there may be a new show with just Kate and the twins.

angie said...

well that was painful to watch. the twins are NOT tv material. they have no 'it' factor.
WOS is definitely pushing a twin reality show..the girls, when asked, said they would prefer a reality show versus other types of tv.
mady was more vocal this go round, but Cara is painfully shy.

I just don't see the appeal of a reality show for these girls. Yes, WOS, you are right...your girls are normal, typical, blah blah...which translates to AVERAGE, dare I say mediocre?

nothing special to see there.
and the last ? Barbara asked was to the girls...do you see your dad, or something like that....they sat there and didn't say a word.

there were a few questions where mady clearly disrespected her mother. it was hilarious.

Everyone seemed to take their silence about seeing dad as an answer that they DIDN'T see him.

You're a tramp, Kate.

Lalalalala said...

WHAT. THE. HELL. Usual slobber fest with the hosts. The last question was asked by Barbara, "Do you see your father"? Maddy looked at Kate and was silent. Neither twin said anything. Looks like Kate really laid the law down to those girls before taping. What a cluster F%#$ she is.

Vanessa said...

That silence at the end? Classis TFW! How many times has she done that in the multitude of interviews? Remember her speaking in "code" to Ellen??
Oh! and they see the crew sometimes! did you know that??
Oh! and it was pretty much the same crew! did you know that?

They looked at Kate for EVERYTHING. It was creepy. It was so bad Whoopie had to tell them to STOP LOOKING AT HER. Good Lord.

chefsummer said...

Good job Whoopie now Kate stop leave them alone let them be teens.

localyocul said...

Well, I do have to agree with this:

Eric ‏@Erocklee 1m
Jon Gosselin should probably shave his head at this point. his balding pattern is like a crop circle

Berks Neighbor said...

Haters gonna hate
Sheeple gonna baaaaaa
But the other tweets on twitter are not going in her favor.
TFW is still looking like a pimp and the consensus is that this was another 'awkward' WTF? interview.

May said...

Wow. Do the littles get to see the twins throw daddy under the bus this morning?

Marie

Yep she tried to make them. And when Mady wouldn't answer did you see Kate shaking her head no and she said "ANSWER" I really dislike this woman!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Same crew eh? That's not what Kate said.

How come you miss the crew if you still see them? Why isn't that enough? Isn't that bETTER anyway, since no one is working and you can just relax and talk?

AuntieAnn said...

Bitch Kate just had to say 'the nine of us' inferring that Jon either died or moved to Siberia after the divorce.

And there it is the twins both want a return to reality tv. Kate is happy now. She gave them a thumbs up.

localyocul said...

What do you do to help out?

She loads the dishwasher and I wipe the counter.

Yeah, caught that too. Bet she's laughing her flat ass off right now AT the tups!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Even though do we want another reality show the twins kind of hedged. A lot of ummms. Mady admitted she actually more is into singing. It wasn't a resounding YES that Kate would have preferred but close enough for her I suppose.

In any case we care whether or not they want another dumb reality show why? Is it on the table? Then why should the public CARE?

Anonymous said...

she can get a new show all she wants, it will tank just like her last one. She is 25 minutes over her 15 minutes that was way too long.

I am trying to think of something nice to say about Kate Gosselin. It ain't happening.

She is a Cow said...

Ugh, that wasn't much better than Today. May I just ask, what would a "Growing Up Gosselin" reality show be about.

Now if it were reality, it would be get up, eat breakfast go to the bus stop. Stop filming for 9 hours, pick up from bus stop, chores, dinner, chores, HW, showers and bed.....repeat until the weekend, where they will be filmed sitting on the Konpound playing with Legos, while Kate whips up yummy, delicious recipes in the kitchen...not. Now that is their reality. Not many outside interests, or sports.

Kate wants her reality to be freebies, trips, wardrobe, makeup, hair, traveling all on a golden platter. Neither scenario is watchable.

chefsummer said...

I so glad that the girls didn't lie about seeing Jon and Barbara shame on you for saying what you said.

Same on Kate for telling them to ANSWER the question.

localyocul said...

Again with the "they tell me what to do". She is in for it in about a year. If not less.

Whoopi is not buying this charade #TheView ... "stop looking at your mom"

She paid Maddie/Mattie off. #TheView

"You ruined my dramatic silence." Chile I would have got punched in the face saying something like that. #TheView

at this point, I think Kate Gosselin will take whatever she can get even if it means using her kids. #TheView” so sad

Barbara didn't have to put that little girl and her daddy issues on blast like that though. That was not ok. #TheView

Watching Kate Gosselin and her twins on #TheView. Love how the girls keep blindsiding their mother by NOT saying what she wants them to.

Nice to see Kate Gosselin on The View on MLK day. Who's next Octomom?#TheView

Virginia Pen Mom said...

Baba asks, "Do you still see your dad?"

Mady: "Ummmmmmm"

And before she can speak, Baba pipes up, "There's my answer right there!" and shuts the segment down.

That was 35 minutes of my life I'll never get back (including waiting for them to come out.) They talked about maybe doing a reality show "the three of them" and Kate pipes up, "Mady, you'll get to talk more!" (meaning if the sextuplets aren't there.)

Kate claims they are her left and right hand in terms of helping, but Mady says she doesn't help.

Cara had her head hung sideways. Even when talking, she looked highly uncomfortable. Hands hidden between knees.

Baba so botoxed she can barely move her mouth. She is definitely an old bat as someone said above. That was terrible to cut Mady off and let the audience assume Mady was going to say, "No" about seeing her dad.

And when they (Fantasia?) COMPLIMENTED Kate's parenting... Wonder how the View hosts felt after seeing and hearing about the Today Show?

May said...

Also, did you hear Walters when she said about the liking to be on TV, after allthey had been on TV and are going to be....yeah. That witch has something in the works.

Also she snapped at Mady when she didn't answer the question about seeing Dad. She said "Answer!" while shaking her head no...I'm sorry to be repeating myself but I am really uncomfortable!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I really laughed when Kate said oh everyone warns me about the teen years but here they are at 13 and it's great.

LOL! Kate, you have barely scratched the surface of the teen years! Barely. You have no authority to speak on the teen years and how it's going. See how it's going when they're 16.

Paula said...

Please dear Lord, let this be the end of Kate using her children. Let Mady and Cara go be regular teenagers.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I wish Wawa didn't cut her off, I want to hear Mady's answer to that because she COULD NOT LIE.

Berks Neighbor said...

Did you catch that "C" wasn't into 1Direction. *LOL*
"C" isn't playing the game, but "M" seems to know how to work the system a little better and get TFW to give her what she wants. (apparently including a $300 pair of boots that she was wearing).

PatK said...

Yes, give them another reality show so that the <1 million viewers can watch and it can be cancelled shortly thereafter. Because apparently Kate isn't going to get it through her head that she's a failure and no one cares to watch her kids act up/argue/whine anymore.

Anonymous said...

sounds like a reality show is in the mix based on how they do for the promo

I guess I can't envision just what type of reality show they would have that would be interesting to watch. I don't think I'm the only one having trouble with this.

Then Whoopie asked age appropriate questions about bands they like. Whoopie did a good job making them comfortable under Kate's control. I like Whoopie.

&&&&&&

I've always liked her. Of course, some of her political/social views are not in line with mine, but I like that she has the ability to see right through people -- she can read them like a book, and she tells it like it is. She's nobody's fool and she's not intimidated by anyone.

I'm not watching the show. Kate just rubs me the wrong way and I end up wanting to punch out my television screen.

The Empress Was Stripped Bare-Nekkid said...

I'm confused. So Mady said she saw both parents, when asked about the divorce, but later answered Barbara's question (about whether or not she saw her father) by saying "Ummmm"?

Did she seem to contradict herself, then, or…?

That ticked me off too, Danielle! I could feel the anger rising. I hate that a washed-up has been reality person (not star) can make me angry.

So there ya go, Milo. The media presents what it wants, just as you said. And it WASN'T live, Milo. Did they do a retake? When it was live, the truth came out.

If "Growing Up Gosselin" ever airs, I pledge myself to never watch it.

And then old Baba calling Kate a "reality SUPERSTAH." I'm glad I haven't eaten yet.

Vanessa said...

They're her right and left hand!

"Parentification is the trait in Narcissistic Mothers of expecting her daughter to look after her instead of the other way around.

This process of parentification is very abusive as the daughter, correctly judging this as the price of her mother's approval, and not knowing any better, tries to take on the burden of meeting those needs.
This means that she is not paying attention to her own needs and desires and attending to the important business of growing up. And it also means that she's trying to do stuff she's just not equipped for.

Parentification is a huge burden to put on a small girl, but one that Narcissistic Mothers put on without conscience.

This feeling of being burdened can keep us trapped in looking after her."

This is exactly what I saw this morning



swimgirl said...

Kate was still trying to prompt them during the interview. You can see her shaking her head at the girls and trying to set up their answers. She looked angry when Mady said she hates Justin Beiber. Also, I loved that Cara said she does not like 1D. I thought BOTH girls loved them!!

Much better interview. Kate says all the right words ( I am so proud of them, etc), but there is not much emotion behind them. I felt that way about the Today interview. She never touched them to reassure them that it was ok, Very sad.

MickeyMcKean said...

Just wanted to say THANK YOU once again all the 15 bloggers who love to find interesting links and tweets and post them on this blog which of course help those of us who are interested in what is going on but do not have the time to do so but we can quickly scan looking for links.

Again it is very much appreciated especially after the fiasco last week.

I'm sure that after today's View episode there will be once again a lot of comments made all over the Internet, and I look forward to seeing the links and tweets posted.

However before I see the episode on the west coast I want to say that it has to be a lose/lose for Kate because if the twins are talkative, people will assume she bullied her twins in more ways than one and if they do not talk it will just confirm that all is not A-OK in the McMansion.

BTW re the View's taping schedule, I believe they tape Friday's show on Thursday and since Kate and twins were in NYC on Thursday it is possible that they went from the NBC studio to the ABC one. It would be easy to pull it off as being filmed today as long as the hosts are all wearing the same outfits they wear on Monday's show.

Or Kate and the twins made two trips to NYC and since today is a school holiday the twins would not be missing school.

Which reminds me -- has there been any sightings of Steve in NYC or are you guys just assuming he was there? Just wondering.

Yes, Kate is what... several months into having teenagers and it's GREAT? Hang on, baby. You ain't seen nothin' yet. Thirteen is a cakewalk. Just wait until they have their learner's permits and are driving and boys come into the picture and tweeting.... If they think you're annoying now (and say it to you), just WAIT. Wait, Kate.

Someone asked the twins about social media but they never got to answer.

AuntieAnn said...

That must have been one hell of a bribery shopping spree between the Today show and taping at the View. The girls talked a lot more but Kate looked on edge.

I thought the whole thing was awkward. Give it up Kate.

Had to laugh when Mady answered the question Admin asked the other day..."I don't like Justin Bieber".

Ps. LOVED LOVED LOVED the way Mady contradicted nearly everything Kate said from the divorce to her love of 1D and helping around the house. #teammady&cara

swimgirl said...

One last comment I used to love to watch The View when it first aired with Meredith Viera. I had a very hard time watching it today, it is horrible. Barbra should have retired years ago and the show needs to be cancelled.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Did she seem to contradict herself, then, or…?

&&&

Her seeing her dad slipped off her tongue early in the interview, but I'm sure when faced with the direct question she suddenly remembered she was supposed to say she doesn't see him and was caught off guard. Hence, ummm. These are good girls who cannot lie. I liked Cara saying she doesn't like One Direction. I don't think Kate REALLY listens to these girls and their likes and dislikes.

Tucker's Mom said...

In any case we care whether or not they want another dumb reality show why? Is it on the table? Then why should the public CARE?
********
Kate is a selfish woman who is raising selfish kids.
Why should they get another show? Why not another family? That family has received more than most people in several lifetimes, and yet they want more, more, more.
Selfish, entitled and self-centered.

That was SO "see-through"...thanks for mentioning it. And Kate patting her little trained monkey on the knee at the end of the interview and giving Mady a thumbs-up. Looks like they passed the "wire hanger" test for the second interview.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Remember too we said when she got those expensive tickets for a concert that is not until THE END OF NEXT SUMMER (or maybe even the fALL??) and we all said oh Lord Kate they are 13 their interests are fickle what are the chances they will even still love this band next year?

Even one of the sheeple admitted that. What an idiot. And now Cara doesn't like them and it's only January.

*****************************************************
YEAH! WTF? Could she have kissed her butt anymore? What has she done that is just so wonderful that she is "proud" of her? What has she done differently than the millions of moms out there that you would be compelled to say you are "proud"?

M said the divorce didn't affect them it was much harder on her mom. Um, they shouldn't know anything about that. And they are still spending bonding time every night in Kate's room? She probably makes them so they can't go off and have a secret twitter account

PA Dutch Mom said...

So when this was taped, the ladies at the View still hadn't gotten wind of what happened on the Today show? It was still early in the game?

fidosmommy said...

May I just ask, what would a "Growing Up Gosselin" reality show be about.

No one has explained that. Ever.

The other show about nothing was a runaway success.

So far there were 2-3 positive tweets not counting the regular fans (only saw Milo and that Sparkle idiot). The rest are all negative. #awkward #controlling #pimping

chesterctymom said...

So now on twitter Kate is blaming the Today Show for not giving the girls time to warm up before the interview...really Kate, can't you ever take responsibility...

Paula said...

Wow, Andy Cohen really really doesn't like Kate. Milo...I thought everyone liked Kate when they met her? What say you?

silimom said...

I took the seeing Dad comment to be a reference to the time of the divorce. BW question should have been phrased "Do you see your Dad now" but it was implied and that's why Mady froze.

What I would hope for, is that a photo of Jon and the girls to come out dated for this week.

foxy said...

I think Mady's ummm about seeing her dad was a yes they do see him. She was afraid to answer as she looked at Kate for what to say. She is so EVIL! One day she will find out. The girls are ordinary kids, nothing that would jump out as super talented or awesome. Cara is painfully shy and how nice of Mady to ask her if she wants to answer the question. Then Mady answers because Cara is not comfortable. Kate says the three of them "hang out" every night. She is really mentally disturbed. The other kids must be out to bed at 7pm after doing all their chores.

Vanessa said...

I'm confused. So Mady said she saw both parents, when asked about the divorce, but later answered Barbara's question (about whether or not she saw her father) by saying "Ummmm"?

Did she seem to contradict herself, then, or…?
*************************************************************
She was talking about during the divorce in the first part, and then then the last part was in reference to now. She never really answered, it was all planned that way, so it's inferred that they don't see him now. Bet it's the twins because she can't rely on the tups to "try" and lie (not that twins are good at it) I think a couple of them would innocently contradict the bullshit she's trying to sell.

PatK said...

How soon will the sextuplets be invited on The View to rebut their sisters' comments toward them?

Good God, this could go on forever. LOL

getofftwitter said...

For those who thought it was live, it wasn't, they had on same clothes, as Today show. This was scripted. The girls would look at each other then at Kate, for guidance. Kate of course did the most talking, the way she see it. I caught that, when Whoopie said to them don't look at her(their mother). When asked about their father they looked at Kate first and said nothing, Kate said something like: tell them! in a command voice. The interview it self was still on the awkward, side, though much better than the Today show. But you can tell Kate had intervened, to make sure this interview went smooth. Since she did most of the talking, which if you watched the girls they did not like.
What is this crap about the girls not liking the young ones. We all know Kate does not intervene, when any of the kids fight, is Kate causing friction between all the kids? Does Kate think it's a game? By now most sibs, get along very well.
Another, That Fantastia or whatever her name was, what a Kate but kisser. Was it Sherry that asked about 1d, cause Cara said she did not like them. So could it be if Kate got tickets for 1d, it was cause Maddy wanted them, she is the one kid who wants to be an actor, now singer, and wants to be on TV again, who is right up Kates alley. Is that who she really got the ticket for? or did she ever get the tickets? Kate has never answered that question on twitter.
I still think they should not have been on TV at all.
And as for Jon preventing it, remember Kate flys under the radar. She will do it, silence the kids, and get it out there, then worry about it, when it is too late to do anything about it. Jon has his hands full.

Tucker's Mom said...

That was 35 minutes of my life I'll never get back (including waiting for them to come out.) They talked about maybe doing a reality show "the three of them" and Kate pipes up, "Mady, you'll get to talk more!" (meaning if the sextuplets aren't there.)
*****
Wait, what? I dvr'd and haven't watched yet, but are they saying that Kate and the girls want a show separate from their siblings?
wtf?
Talk about a narcisstic move.

Divide and conquer.
Wow, people here called it. Kate would give those kids over to Jon if she can't make money off them anymore.
First, the People article that makes a point of saying that the girls are bothered by the tups, calling them names. Now, they want to film without them?
If Kate condones this or encourages this, she's sicker than I thought.

angie said...

WOS answered a few questions for the girls, but each time she opens her mouth, you can just tell she's pulling a lot of bullshit out of her ass...incomplete thoughts and sentences, just a mish-mash of stupid!

When Whoopi asked the girls about social media, WOS's eyes almost popped out of her head...

I believe someone tweeted during the summer of seeing Jon out with ALL the kids, seems like it was to get ice cream?

Hey WOS, I hate to tell ya, but here's the cold, hard truth...there ain't nothing special about your kids. They are just mediocre. Hard to say, but, heck, you put your kids out there as a commodity. The public ain't buying what you are trying to sell.

Let's assume for argument's sake the twins ARE estranged from Jon. Even though despite Kate's alienation we know that's not true due to the numerous sightings and photos of them with Jon. Why is it so important to her the public knows this? Why is it the public's business??

If they were really in such a place that they were estranged from their father, a loving mother would deal with it in therapy, not on national TV.

It's kind of irrelevant what is going on with Jon, either way it's not appropriate to talk about in public.

chefsummer said...

Kate is a selfish woman who is raising selfish kids.
Why should they get another show?

I don't think the kids are selfish I believe Kate has driven the idea of having a show is the best thing ever. in their heads so many times that what they want doesn't matter.

The kids know that by saying they want a show or doing another show is the only way they will get them what they possible want.

KAte Gosselin is the poster mom for "How to Be A Parent Alienator" and "How Not to Handle Your Divorce." I pray there's $ left over for those kids for couseling. In the People article, it stated that KATE gave the kids the counseling. Nothing one-sided about that, is there?

swimgirl said...

Another good comment from The View board..

That interview was sad. It wasn't at all about the girls. It was to do damage control, further damage control, for Kate's image. Kate's problem is that the girls are getting old enough to realize all this. Getting them to do these interviews are going to be ridiculous because even if she threatens them into it, they're going to resent her in the long run. When those girls are in college, they're going to be so sick of "fixing what people think" of Mommy that they'll be ready to lock up Mommy in the old age home.

They didn't ask those girls one thing about their school, or their activities..just "what's it really like at home?"

Admin I agree with you about the question from Barbara. Ridiculous!

Whoopie looked at Barbara, and looked disgusted (IMO) at the end.

OrangeCrusher1 said...

Oh absolutely. What purpose does it serve, IF your children are really your priority, to let fools like Barbara Walters suggest estrangement from their father. She's shopping a reality show for 3, herself and her barely articulate 13 year olds. What pray tell would they even be doing on said show? Shopping, cooking, having slumber parties. If there is a production company out there foolish enough to offer her a show, how long will it last anyway? And the logistics - in the old filming days the focus was on the pre-school tups,I with the 'cute' factor. These girls are not home schooled, they attend a rigorous private prep school - doubt they want to put up with filming shenanigans. The whole thing is ludicrous. And now that her puppets have watched The View, will they be spending their holiday indoors watching Mommy wind and rewind? She's so pleased with herself, she'll be tweeting with Milo all day.

Dress them up, parade them around, still don't see anything worthy of a new reality show. She is an insufferable fool. Those poor kids.

Admin said: I wish Wawa didn't cut her off, I want to hear Mady's answer to that because she COULD NOT LIE.
+++++++++++
I totally agree. It made it seem especially after Barbara's comment that the girls do NOT see their father. Well, from both of the twins' interviews we know it takes them a long time (in tv time) to answer questions or not answer them at all. I would have loved to hear them answer it and not Barbara (who knows nothing about the family) answer for them.

The interview was better but still the girls have no "it" factor at all---none. Cara is too shy for the camera and Mady comes off as a talkative brat who bashed her six siblings in both print and tv. The tups are 9 years old and if they film again they will be filming their third reality show in those 9 years. If that isn't abusive, I don't know what is. And I can't believe that IF they did get another show that it would not include the tups. I think a lot of people may believe that just because they were not on the cover of People, The Today show, or The View.

And does anybody remember what Kate wrote about the twins and how they coped with the divorce in her book, "IJWYTK"? The divorce had to have affected the twins. I am saying Jon's dating affected them but the divorce must have bothered them. But I am glad Mady said they saw both parents during it. It proves that even though Jon may have lived in Utah, California, and New York he always kept his custody schedule. Even Jon said that he came home for his custody time. And his custody during the separation & divorce was more time than it is now.

MickeyMcKean said...

Re ROL Article ~

Keeping in mind that if Kate's lips are moving she must be lying ... I don't believe the ROL article at all. I believe the twins do see their dad and that the child support was eliminated for another reason(s).

In fact it is my belief that the reason Jon no longer pays any child support is because he had to prove to the court that he has to provide all clothing for his children during his custody times.

In other words: would Kate allow her children to bring their clothes from her house that she paid for to his house? HELL NO.

So I'm willing to bet that with Jon's new income based upon working at restaurants and not in TV or IT, and with him having to feed and have wardrobes for all 8 at his home since I'm sure that Kate controls what they could take on the weekends, this is probably why Jon and Kate and the Judge agreed Jon does not have to pay child support.

Guess what? Jon and Liz cook for 11 kids!

Kate needs to develop a social network with people her own age. She's way too bff with the girls and it shows especially with Mady. That child takes way too many liberties around adults and needs to be taught manners.

Math Girl said...

I know I'm late to the party on the ROL article (west coast, not a morning person), but I would like to reiterate what many other posters have said:

According to the Kate and "a source close to Kate", the kids love being on TV, Jon agreed to let them be on TV, and they're MAD at him for it? Logic sure isn't their strong point, is it?

Also, if Jon "sold" his kids, then Kate "bought" them. They claim one is pure evil and the other pure good? Logic again?

I looked at Andy (Bravo) tweets and he did not tweet about the Today Show interview. I think if Andy does not make her Jackhole of the Day it may be that the Today show on NBC and is sister networks to Bravo. Also Andy worked at NBC a long time ago. And he has Matt and Savannah on his show this week. Maybe they taped that episode with the Today hosts on the day or day after the twins' interview and Matt/Savannah may have asked him not to tweet badly about the interview. Or perhaps Andy may not want to address the interviews because it involves two kids. His tweet was not about either interview only that he has nothing good to say about Kate. other than her surgery looks good...Bam or should I say slam!

@Kateplusmy8 The one positive to take from the two interviews, is, your agenda and the disgust it's stirred has rendered you a media leper.

That about says it all.

"WOS answered a few questions for the girls, but each time she opens her mouth, you can just tell she's pulling a lot of bullshit out of her ass...incomplete thoughts and sentences, just a mish-mash of stupid!"

-----

She can't talk. I've never seen anything like it...someone who has been in front of the cameras for years, doing interviews, speaking engagements and she just can't talk. I wonder if it's because she has some kind of pathological speech disorder, she can't produce connective speech. Or, is it because she can't formulate her thought process quickly enough and sort out the lies from the truth and the result is that everything comes out disconnected?

The Today show/Gosselin snippet is on Access Hollywood right now. That stupid tweet from a sheeple "...I couldn't have done better and I'm 27" just made the screen. Geez. If a 27-year-old couldn't have sat on a sofa completely silent, then that person has some serious issues.

lukebandit said...

Oh yes, Babs, Whoopie, Sheri, Jenny, Fantasia are there. Babs just asked Fantasia, Fantasia, are you SUICIDAL?!!! What's going on with that? She was SERIOUS! What the heck? She's nuts! Sheri is all wound up about Gab Union on her show that her husband on the show is having an affair with another woman. Gab went and met her and asked her a bunch of questions. Sheri said she has dealt with that and that she would never go and do that. But it is okay for Prince walking on the View and for her to stand up and basically scream, I have wanted to make love to you ALL OF MY LIFE!

They just went to commercial and the announcer said TFW and daughters and tabloid headlines. Oh, my. lanta.

Ready, set, go, Whoopie just announced they TFW and her daughters, M and C are on next. I don't get a BP med till lunch.

All the hosts are on the couch. TFW is sitting next to Babs. Not sandwiched in between the girls. Of course. Kate is talking for them. Fantasia is wonderful to them. Fantasia said she talked to them backstage and Fantasia asked the girls if her nail polish matched her dress. They said yes. Cara speaks, but not before TFW points toward her and says GO FOR IT! Snap free. Spit It Out Free!

That witch won't even let them talk! She said the girls hang out with me in my room EVERY NIGHT.

WAY TO GO MADY! YOUR RUINING MY DRAMATIC SILENCE!

Jenny asks about the cook book and TFW said basically she has a RESTAURANT! Yes, she has a chef, Katherine. So she has a restaurant!

Fantasia said that she was glad or proud that TFW has been able to do this raising the kids? holding it down? Wow, the girls turned their heads and rolled their eyes and looked toward TFW but past her head.

Someone asked the girls about social media. And the TFW got a scared look on her face and her eyes got huge as saucers.

What I don't get is that the girls said that they want to do another reality show and Jon said all the kids have told them they don't want to. Also, Mady said that they had the same crew the whole time and they got really close to them and they see them all the time!

Mady said she couldn't stand Justin Beiber. haha She really likes a certain guy in One Direction.

We all know that is a lie! Many were swiffered away by TFW herself. Several left because of moral issues. I am sure they miss some of the crew years later because they remember that they played games and they talked to the kids. They were human to them, TFW not at all!

Sunny Anderson is on now and that food looks soooo good. No audience giveaway of the crookbook from TFW!!! And all the members of the studio audience will be going home with her book, Sunny's Kitchen!!! TFW, why didn't you do the same? Did you ask about it and they turned you down because of all the bad publicity surrounding your book? Did you not want to pay the shipping of the books to NYC? Maybe you wanted to save the shipping costs to pay for your root touch up.

The lady singer that came on is collaborating with somebody for gay rights and I looked and Sheri was not out there. Just Jenny and Fantasia.

I agree, a picture with Jon and the twins needs to come out. But, we know that he does not like to publish pictures of his kids. A compromise could be Jon and the girls sitting at a table and Jon is facing the camera and the girls backs are to the camera.

I replied to Andy Cohen's tweet about TFW. I asked him if I could nominate TFW for J H of the Day! And I asked him if he thought TFW looked better or worse since she was on his show. And for the cherry on top, I put TFW's twitter address on there! hahaha

I wonder if Jon will interview about the girls being on the View.

JudyK said...

Oh, one more comment and then I have to get busy and get some IRS stuff together which is due before the 31st.

Bawa needs to RETIRE now, not yesterday, not tomorrow, but NOW. I am so sick of looking at her botoxed face, her finger pointing, her talking over everyone. I'm not taking away from what she has contributed to journalism IN THE PAST, but she's no longer watchable and makes me cringe. I will NOT watch The View when she's part of the panel...today was an exception.

"Do you see your father?"
Well let's see now. Did your mother kick him out of the matrimonial bed? Did your mother kick him out of the house and made him live in the apt. over the garage? Did your mother kick him out of there too?
Did your mother stop allowing him to pick you up at the door of your home? Does he now have do all the picking up and dropping off and leave you at the gate? Did your mother refuse to go to therapy? Did your mother cut off all contact with your grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins?

I do get the sense that the twins skip visits with Jon. Jon has said as much.

Yes and it could be as innocent as they have sports or a friend's party that day. They are 13, other things are their priority and that should be respected. It's no different than leaving Kate on KATE's time for similar exploits. Jon respects their needs, and it's what they need right now.

Best Interest? said...

The bottom line is child support is about BEST INTEREST and can't be bargained away, so this is all just nonsense.

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

How is it in the BEST INTEREST of eight children to have their father relieved of paying child support?

Vanessa said...

The interview was better but still the girls have no "it" factor at all---none. Cara is too shy for the camera and Mady comes off as a talkative brat who bashed her six siblings in both print and tv
___________________________________________________

Marie, this is what I was referring to when I said on the previous topic that M. had no problem bashing her younger sister. I wasn't referring to the Today show interview, I was speaking about the People interview. Tried 3 times to respond to your post saying that what I said was unfair. Just wondering why they weren't posted. Will this one go through?

Hoosier Girl said...

Kate continues to let NOTHING be sacred in her children's lives. Not even their relationship with their own father. That information belongs to those girls and Jon. I'm sickened.

Carole said...

For someone who just appeared on a national tv show, TFW's twitter is awfully quiet. LOL

Carole said...

So when this was taped, the ladies at the View still hadn't gotten wind of what happened on the Today show? It was still early in the game?

They may have heard whispers about what happened but I doubt they saw a tape of it since they were busy doing their Thursday live show and getting ready to tape Monday's show but definitely the audience hadn't heard anything at all - unless they for some reason follow TFW on twitter

&&&

We have no idea what they've arranged. There are numerous scenarios where a judge could find this, and they do now and again. For instance if could be worked out that the father will pay for their medical, dental, schooling. He could have also saved the millions the family made to make sure they were provided for for years to come, as Jon says he did. Kate isn't paying for school, their educational trust is, he explained this very clearly to Wendy. He could also pay for all their needs when they are with him. Child support is not the only way to support your children, and I think that's what the sheeple fail to understand. There are many other arrangements that can be made for support other than cutting a check to a mother. Divorce Corp talks quite a bit about child support, how there's no accountability to the parent seeking it, how it perpetuates the old fashioned idea that the man must provide everything and makes many women lazy, and how other countries have other systems in place that work much better and are much more fair, and it results in a hell of a lot less animosity too.

Vanessa said...

According to the Kate and "a source close to Kate", the kids love being on TV, Jon agreed to let them be on TV, and they're MAD at him for it? Logic sure isn't their strong point, is it?
******************************************************8
Exactly what I said in the previous topic board. It makes absolutely no sense! If they have Jon's blessing to do another show, then watcha waitin' for??! OHHH, he GAVE permission and now he's saying NO...ahhh he made "the deal" and now he's backing out. Oh, I see...

That bitch, in her pea brain ASSumed that she WOULD have COMPLETE and UTTER control with their new arrangement. I'm sure that's what SHE thinks. The sheeple didn't come up with this on their own. She must have sock accounts.

Layla said...

Make no mistake about it, this was all planned to promote Kate's Growing Up Gosselin pitch. She did some filming, she came up with a logo, and then trotted out the girls to help her sell it. She still doesn't realize that she, Mady, and Cara were never the big draw. It was the tups all along. And the conflict between her and Jon. Perhaps having Mady and Cara trash the tups in People Magazine and then again on The View (what parent allows such a thing? Those 6 are her youngest children, but she lets their older siblings trash them in public--not once but twice???) was supposed to recreate the conflict angle, which would now be between he twins and the tups instead of Kate and Jon. The three of them were supposed to come off as talkative, bubbly, having an amazing mother-daughter bond. Instead, she was nothing but controlling and the girls were awkward and intimidated.
This was orchestrated to sell a show. Period. Throwing Jon under the bus was just icing on the cake.

I hope nobody picks up this horrid concept for a show. The last show with Kate and the kids crashed and burned. Surely the networks remember this. And there has been a lot more ugliness since then. I hope nobody is willing to take a chance on her again. What would they do now that they didn't already do? I suppose they want some network to bankroll expensive vacations, extravagant shopping excursions, trips to Ted Gibson and nail salons, etc--kind of selling a privileged lifestyle-type thing? With Mama Kate along for the ride, of course.

Does that translate into she throws the paper plates away and I take the plastic off the counter?

Also, I think that BW is as bad as the pimp.

Wilma said...

I'm wondering what Whoopi thinks. Often she says if you want to act, act in local productions - if you want to act that is not the same as chasing fame. Whoopi did ask the girls if they wanted to be actress or have a reality tv show. And they didn't want to be actresses - they wanted another show.
That never is healthy to be chasing just fame and I wish one of the View hosts has called them out on it.

Layla said...

Remember when Kate was on Andy Cohen and Milo gushed over her performance, and told her, "You rocked it!", and then Andy immediately named Kate as Jackhole of the Week? Good memories....

If Kate is ever on again, I don't think Savannah will be interviewing!
The Today looks complicit with this child abuse of Kate's. It was a very cruel segment for the twins.

Thank you to the person who took the time to find and then posted the link BEFORE the interview started which proves that the twins were "warmed up".

IMO Kate just looked so happy to be back on TV that she could hardly sit still and the twins did appear to interact with Savannagh ... that is ... until the real interview started.

It's very sad to see Mady following in Kate's lying footsteps. Kate and Jon both said Mady saw the divorce coming, yet , she really didn't know what was going on?
Also, Mady said on CWS that all she's ever known is work, Kendra cried at the cruelty of their chore schedule, but now, on The View, she does nothing around the house?
Lying always comes back to bite you in the ass, dear.

I think Cara and Mady enjoy a day without having their younger siblings. Mady said she had a lot of responsibility for them. A whole Tuesday without housemother duties might feel like a day at the spa for her.

The thing is - who would watch it? The scathing comments from potential viewers, the ridicule she's getting in the media, all add up to one thing: nobody wants to see her pimp out her kids to sustain the lifestyle to which she thinks she is accustomed. All she has succeeded in doing with this ill-fated media tour is to prove that neither she, nor the twins, has anything at all that the public wants to see. In fact, she's screwed up once again and has shown that this is the last thing in which anyone is interested. She's the butt of jokes, and even those who like to watch train wrecks aren't at all interested this time around.

silimom said...

Again, child support can be re-evaluated at any time and the request can come from either parent. We know Jon had a large support payment at the time the divorce was first finalized and that amount was based on his salary from TLC. He later petitioned the court to review that amount based on his current level of income and also to take into account his increased custodial time.

If it's such a problem, then given that he's able to now get television work, Kate could petition the family court to re-evaluate the support based on his increased income.

We talked about Jon cutting a deal with Kate before when it first came out he no longer had to pay child support. I believe the concensus was that he may very well had said "go for it", knowing the likelihood of Kate getting another full time show with the kids was slim to none,

It just frosts my cookies when reports like the one at Radar come out because Jon already addressed that in an interview. He said he sees the little kids regularly the twins not so much because they're busy with friends and school and he doesn't take it personally.

Are these the same kids that are up every morning getting ready for school to be at the bus stop by 6:30 a.m.? They weren't awake by the time of the Today Interview?

silimom said...

You know, I have to cut Mady some slack. She had just done the Today show and was probably ripped a new one by her mom in the limo ride over to The View. I think Mady said what she needed to to please and soothe her mom's ire.

If Mady saw the divorce coming then it may have been a relief to her when it was finally done. Yes, her parents still fight and that is it's own stress, but I have to believe that when Jon & Kate were together, the tension in that house could probably have been cut with a knife and the kids probably were always walking on eggshells. It probably was to some degree a relief for her. And I think she was truthful in saying the divorce was harder for Kate because Kate was squeezing every ounce of drama she could from the situation and Mady saw that.

Carole said...

Did y'all catch TFW at the at the tail end of the segment after the silence when Barb asked if they saw Jon? She raised her hands in a gesture to Mady as if to say WTH, why didn't you SAY what we'd practiced?!

Tucker's Mom said...

Agree. It's pathological to have your children conditioned to chase fame. Like I've said, why should they work? Go to college? Make due being mediocre? The Gosselin brand will bring opportunities to film, and my bet is that a few of the kids will continue down this route.

I meant to write that Jon's dating did NOT affect them. Sorry!

Also we know that The View was done with Kate because she has not been on there for a very long time. Nor has she a co-hosted in a very long time. Kate was in NY for her mini press tour for her cookbook. Don't you think if the View was interested in her a few months ago they would have asked her then to promote her cookbook?

The ONLY reason she was on today was because of the twins and she knows that in heart.

"Kate had been practicing with the girls do make sure they did not have another national TV disaster,” an insider tells NAUGHTY BUT NICE ROB. “The girls are very private but Kate insisted they do this interview.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I definitely agree with your comment about counseling but I think the reason why it may not have affected them that much is that TFW was gone most of the time anyway. So really, toward the end of the marriage, they were being raised in a single parent household. I'm sure they were used to not seeing one parent or the other for stretches of time. They do need counseling though for that and the many other issues that will come up as they get older.

Formerly Duped said...

Thanks for all the comments on the show. I didn't watch, until the clip became available. Yes, Barbara's question about Jon is not there now. It was awful to hear Mady diss her siblings the way she did. They also downplayed the 52 point chore chart.Why would TFW have the tups watch this?

Small point, but if C does not like 1D how was TFW making her kids dreams come true by trying to get tickets, and going to see the 1D movie. Fantasia made me ill.

If this was just hours later than Today, it was long enough to flatten Kate's hair and happy up the twins.No show is going to spring forth from this fiasco.
