Kate to be contestant on next Celebrity Apprentice

While we haven't heard "official" confirmation yet, Kate's twitter silence and spotting Steve sitting in the background of this video from fellow contestant Terrel Owens is enough to say this with confidence.

I swear in the second clip where Steve was shown again he was reclined on that coach but it was SO quick I could barely tell. LOL.

I almost feel sorry for TFMJG. She will be eaten alive by the real celebrities.

From previous thread:

So basically it looks like he's transformed from a bodyguard to a pity party?

Wow that's sad.

More pathetic is that she writes him a paycheck for this. Cannot wait to see her tossed to the sharks on CA, probably first episode. Tho I use the word see loosely as I would never actually watch this circus. She has absolutely no people skills, no language skills and reacts horribly to criticism of any kind. The only thing I am curious about is what charity would associate with this POS.

Alberta Girl said...

You know what will be hilarious? Seeing TFW try and speak with the intelligent, classy, and eloquent Ivanka Trump. She does not take BS from anyone!

Jeanne said...

Someone on the last thread seemed to imply that Jon's taste in women had changed since he was married and now he's with Liz who swears and smokes and Jon was seen on CT swearing and smoking and whatever. I don't think that men's taste in women ever changes to a large extent (or women's for that matter). Some have speculated that Kate smokes or used to and that she drinks heavily. She appears to have no problem appearing in public dressed like a slob as shown in the candid BBB photo. She was dressed for the Toys R Us photo but either she or TLC called the photog. So here's my question: Do you think that Kate always talking er...um...er is because that's the only way she knows how to take out her swear words? If you don't practice much and always go around yelling and swearing, it can be really hard to talk in a tv acceptable way.

The children look unhappy in pap pictures because she gives them horror stories about how the paps are out to hurt them and ruin their lives. Or else she spent the time in-store yelling at them. Or they are saddened from listening to her humiliate the cashier.

I have never been able to get through CA. I can only stand so much Trump and the celebs blaming each other. I'll have to stick to recaps. But she has to have Steve there. She can't even find the bathroom without his help.

prairiemary said...

I bet Leeza Gibbons will make friends with the, she seems to be so nice to everyone. F2f will do okay while she is still able to blend in with her group at the first couple of tasks, but when they thin out, she will not have anyone to hide behind.

My guess is on an anti-bullying organization. At which Brandi will roll her eyes into the back of her head.

sparkle said...

On the last thread, there was discussion about Kate's fake and paid followers and bots.

I read an interesting article a few months ago about fake twitter accounts. Last summer, twitter let an Italian company have some access and audit twitter accounts for fakes. Needless to say, there were alot of fakes. Twitter was going to clamp down on the paid fakes, but apparently chose to look the other way for now. However, when large companies are looking to associate with celebs with big twitter followings, they now investigate the accounts to determine the real/fake/inactive ratio. While Kate's bought and paid for 190k twitter account looks impressive to her 6 fans, it has zero worth as far as some legitimate company wanting to do business with her.

Uh Oh:

Brandi Glanville ‏@BrandiGlanville 11h

TLC stinks said...

I guess Donald decided it would be a publicity stunt and ratings grab to put her on the show and let viewers watch her meltdowns. Don't feel sorry for her. She is a narcissist. Just like her lackluster and whiney performance on DWTS, she will persist on thinking she is amazing and blame others.

The sighting of Steve sitting on his rear end looking bored is pretty funny. Actually, it reminds me more of a husband in a dress shop waiting while the wife is trying on clothes. She has to be the queen bee while her male servant waits quietly for his orders. It was the same with Jon, except I don't believe she verbally abuses Steve but actually respects him. I guess what causes all the speculation is that their relationship dynamic is clear: Steve, alone, is considered by Kate a beloved family member, a substitute husband and father, confidant, best friend, business partner, advisor. Body guard? Not anymore.

LaLaLandNoMore said...

Just goes to show that we cannot stop a train wreck! The woman will do anything to stay on television and make the big bucks. Looks like the silver fox is a waste of money to me. Sad for the kids, but at least they are not on CA with her. She is surely full of herself now.

NJGal51 said...

Alberta Girl I was going to say the same thing. Ivanka does not suffer fools gladly. TFW had better keep the stink eye in check in the boardroom.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I wonder who TFW will blame when she fails this time? Marriage failure - Jon's fault. DWTS - Tony didn't know how to teach her. Can you imagine how exhausting it must be to constantly look outside yourself for excuses? She has no self awareness - zip. That's why she's unteachable, IMHO.

TLC stinks said...

So they are filming but no formal announcement?

How long before she claims she doesn't have time to do the rubbing-elbows and networking because she's too busy being a mom?

TLC Stinks said...
" It was the same with Jon, except I don't believe she verbally abuses Steve but actually respects him."

Wait for it. It won't be long before she talks to him like she talked to Jon.

Winsomeone said...

If Jon has the 5 children who still visit him on a weekend, and he has a court order giving him first refusal if Kate is gone, can he just keep the kids until she returns? Wouldn't she flip if that happened?

NJGal51 said...

The reason there is no formal announcement of the cast may be that although DT was given the green light for another season no air date has been set for the show. It may be something they film and it never airs. I can't remember from past years but I don't think they announce the cast until everything is in the can and they're ready to air. This is not gospel just my opinion.

foxy said...

In the RV episode didn't Kate demand that Steve get in the RV so she could continue her ranting in private? I don't think she respects anyone and Steve is just there for the big bucks so he takes it. At least he can go home where poor Jon lived there.

Paper Plates Forever! Yay! said...

I wonder if she will volunteer to be project manager for the first task. Just do the opposite of what she thinks the haters will predict she might do. Normally, the contestants seem quite intelligent. It is therefore quite embarrassing that Trump has chosen Kate to be village idiot of the group. I wonder how Kate is with other women. Is she the caddy manipulator, the backstabber, oh the list goes on and on....I say she is the weak, shrinking violet who has an inferiority complex and can't fit in with the others because she is nothing more than a woman with 8 kids from PA. That's it folks. I'm squealing with delight thinking about her performance. Get ready though to see Kate glammed up like never before. They really do a good job with hair/makeup. She will be in her glory!!! Look at me! I'm back on TV!! Yay!!! #willnevergiveuphehheh

Kate is a twit said...

So they are filming but no formal announcement?
================

I did some Googling for when previous casts were announced, and it looks like they make the formal announcement only a month or two before the show airs. In the 3 seasons before the All-Star one, the announcements were made in January or February, and the show then aired in February or March. The cast of the All-Star one, which seemed to be the exception, was announced just before filming started.

According to this video by one member of the press that was at the conference, the new season will air in the fall. The shows are also only going to be one hour instead of two hours like it used to be, perhaps to extend the televised season, or NBC didn't want to give them a 2-hour block, due to the lower ratings the show has received.

http://www.tvmediainsights.com/video/43282/videocast-march-21-2014-celebrity-apprentice-the-100-queen-latifah-whose-line-is-it-anyway-american-dream-builders/

So I guess there will be no formal announcement until the summer. I'm sure though that there will be spottings of the filming mentioned in the press, as filming progresses.

Donald did announce on twitter that filming was starting next week.

"YOU"RE FIRED!!" Looking forward to those words and I totally agree that she takes no responsibility for her own failure .Ever. Always a deflection.

Never mind that the women are going to eat her alive. I think this show may actually punctuate what we all have been saying. : )

I have always had an interesting strategic idea about Celeb Apprentice......yes yes this is what I do when I watch my guilty pleasure, think up strategies. lol

I think it could be very wise to try to volunteer as project manager as early on as possible. There are more weaker players in the beginning and more people to throw under the bus and blame for your shortcomings. So for instance Leeza Gibbons could volunteer first then throw someone like Kate under the bus and get her fired, then Leeza can avoid PM the next 7 tasks because she's already done it, thus probably securing her spot on the show. I doubt Kate has any strategy in mind at all except did you know I have eight kids oh and they were premies! If she stays longer than the first firing she's toast. If there's one thing that gets your team to turn on you quicker than scat it's laziness.

It becomes harder to be PM later on with the better players who will hold their own and be very adapt at throwing you under the bus.

Adept I meant lol.

Alberta Girl I was going to say the same thing. Ivanka does not suffer fools gladly.

Ivanka is SHARP. This is amateur hour for Kate. There is no way her usual tricks that she always does for her sheeple are going to work this time. No way. This is really going to be fun, although I am disappointed it's only one hour now. I want the torture to stretch out for two hehe.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

One thing too about Ivanka is that she is always cool as a cucumber, but you can tell all over her face when she thinks that's the dumbest idea she's ever heard.

Then she'll say something to the camera like, the Magnum team members are dressing the models in foil and saran wrap. I'm not so sure that's what the public is going to consider high fashion, so we'll see how this plays out.

LOL she's great.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Many of us have said that though we don't think TFW is smart, she is cunning. But for this show, it seems you've got to be both. And on
top of that, you need people skills. Mylanta (as Lukebandit would
say), this is gonna be fun to watch!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

You know, why is it that BRANDI has no problem tweeting while she is on CA and not around, but Kate has thrown her phone out the window? Kate does this every darn time and it's SUCH an F-U to her fans. Oh great I get to be a celeb and do fun celeb things? Screw you fans smell ya later. It's so rude and unappreciative.

I see one tweet from Brandi this morning, several from yesterday, and at least one or two from every day before that. While she appears to be tweeting LESS, she is still trying to keep in touch with her fans and tweeting them every day so far.

Blowing In The Wind said...

While Kate's bought and paid for 190k twitter account looks impressive to her 6 fans, it has zero worth as far as some legitimate company wanting to do business with her.

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

Everything she does looks impressive to her six fans. They don't understand that you can buy followers. Her numbers jump simply because she's so loved and so popular. The hundreds of bots who have been there the past week or so are her devoted fans (where were they when she needed cookbook sales?) who are there one minute and never show up again.

Heck, after all this time they are still trying to figure out the custody issues, primary, legal, physical, parent's rights, judges in family courts, etc., and yet they still don't get it and never will.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Doesn't this mean TFW will be away from home on her birthday?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Terrel Owens also tweeted this morning, about a soldier he knows who just had to have her leg amputated. He also made that fan video the other way.

Leeza Gibbons is still posting three or four tweets a day as late as yesterday.

Why is it Brandi, Terrel Owens and Leeza Gibbons have no problem continuing to keep in touch with and show their appreciation for fans, even though they are MIA and very busy on CA?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

The poor sheep are also adamant that a parent without legal custody cannot have the right of first refusal.

Given I've drafted family law orders with just that situation, I can assure them it's possible.

TLC stinks said...

Yes, she did order Steve into the RV. I forgot about that. But here's the difference. She did not want the crew filming her rant with Steve unlike the joy she got putting a Jon down in front of everyone. And she wasn't ranting AT Steve anyway. She wanted to vent to him in private.

Mel said...

I don't think that men's taste in women ever changes to a large extent (or women's for that matter). Some have speculated that Kate smokes or used to and that she drinks heavily. She appears to have no problem appearing in public dressed like a slob as shown in the candid BBB pho

I think you're onto something there. I was thinking that in the BBB pic that TFW was looking remarkably like Liz. We've seen TFW like that before...that stupid baseball cap, dressed like she's going to clean the house (except that she doesn't clean the house, either the kids or the housekeeper does it).

The children look unhappy in pap pictures because she gives them horror stories about how the paps are out to hurt them and ruin their lives

Agree. She must threaten the kids like crazy to not smile at the pap or act like they know him. Which they kind of do, since he's been around for 5-6 years.

This must pose such a dichotomy for the kids when they personally know the pap (like Robert), or they have seen him around for years.

As a kid, you'd think that if someone was that much of a safety risk that your parent would have taken steps to make it stop. Since she hasn't made it stop, the unspoken message is that this is ok.

They're too young to understand the concept that the guy doesn't just hang out in parking lots around town hoping that the uber wonderful Gosselins might show up. Although maybe the twins are old enough to catch on somewhat.

One twin would think the pap thing is great, because she thinks she's pretty special; the other twin is probably thinking, 'please make it stop'.

NJGal51 said...

Admin you and I think alike. I'd want to be project manager early on when all the weak players are still there. If TFW pulls her fake crying during a task she will be called out on it. Rubbing my hands in glee and anticipation.

OrangeCrusher1 said...

So is she away filming for several weeks now, and this show will air in the fall? Quite the mom who can be away for this length of time, and paying Skeevio as well. Dragging him around makes her even more the fool, something she is quite blind to, always. By fall I predict she will have faded even farther from from the D-list, and this is not going to lead to anything beyond utter embarrassment. A solid meh.

TLC stinks said...

I wonder if she'll blame the editing when she looks like an idiot, because although I accept she is exceptually cunning, she is lazy and not so bright. I am sure there is a reason she was selected. How could Donald not be aware of what a disaster she is? Oh, I just answered my question, LOL.

Jeanne said...

Does CA do the little interview after they're fired? I know on Project Runway the eliminated person gets a minute to say I loved it here or the other guy made a worse dress. I'm sure she's already planned what to say but if they caught her mad enough to be more honest it could be interesting.

On many of these shows, when they get eliminated they don't get to go home. They have to go to a hotel and wait until taping is over. Maybe she wants to be eliminated to vacation with Steve in a hotel with room service. Ick.

Wouldn't she just freak if they filmed it and it never aired?

Localyocul said...

How many weeks of filming is it? Do they get a break to see family or not until they are fired?

Luke's Mom said...

-----------------------------
I agree.

But they also have to be hard working. Which Kate is NOT (even if she keeps trying to convince everyone that she does it "all").

Kate has NOT worked in over 8 years. The only work Kate has done is to HIRE HELP to do the work: nannies, cooks, housekeepers, laundry girl, pool boy, landscapers, nannies who grocery shop for her, and of course STEVE (who helps her deal with other people).

And during the RV episode, TLC very strategically pulled the curtain and showed that Kate even demanded the crew members to do all the work.

An when the hired help, Steve, or the crew are not around to do the work, then Kate orders the kids to do it all while she sits in her room and tweets about how much they love to help her (while she screams and yells at them to work harder and faster - "when you help me, you have to run and go faster!" clap clap, snap snap).

So what will Kate do on CA? No hired help to do the work. Steve may be around but DT and the other contestants will not allow him to do her share of the work. And she can't make the kids do it for her either. And there is no way that any contestant will let Kate "clap" or "snap" at them to run and work faster while she sits and yells.

So ...just as TLC did during the RV episodes, CA will show the real Kate:
LAZY
SPOILED
FAKE

And the other contestants will just love to make sure that DT and the viewers see how LAZY and FAKE Kate really is in person when push comes to shove and someone needs to be fired.

And just like Coupon Cabin's "You're Fired" letter, DT and the other contestants will NOT put up with Kate and her UN"authentic" facade nor will they let her "support staff" do the work for her. And of course, they will NOT let her "clap clap" "snap snap" at them to get to work.

Kate is hitting rock bottom with piecing and patching to get back on TV. I really believe that CA (just like DWTS) will not help her reputation in the media at all. Instead it will just add to proof of her being a FAKE and not likable.

So what is there next after CA? What Z list reality show will want her?

mamaK said...

This is awesome news!

Kate! Thanks so much for agreeing to let DT use you in order to make some trash television! Here you are, sitting at home, thinking that you've made it and you get to sit at the "cool kid" table in the lunch room, but really, everyone is just laughing at you.
I can not wait to see what you are made of. I look forward to the day when you have to wave byebye to mr. stevie and move into the trump apartment. No "bodyguard" to deflect for you, no kids to hide behind. Just you and what you can do. (which really isn't much!)
Your first day in the board room is going to be fun. DT doesn't suffer lazy people gladly, and he's gonna call you out on your games. This is, of course, why he's having you on the show. It's gonna make some great "television".

Blowing In The Wind said...

The poor sheep are also adamant that a parent without legal custody cannot have the right of first refusal.

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

I think that you'd have to sit down with them and carefully explain "right of first refusal" and they still wouldn't get it. Even if they understood the legal term, they'd still claim that Jon has no rights whatsoever.

"Why is it Brandi, Terrel Owens and Leeza Gibbons have no problem continuing to keep in touch with and show their appreciation for fans, even though they are MIA and very busy on CA?"

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

You'd think that for someone who loves and appreciates her tweeties as much as Kate claims that she does, she'd check in every so often. What the sheep don't get is that they are being used when she needs them. Right now they are of no use to her. When she needed them to parade around parking lots in a feeble attempt to keep her show on the air, she had no problem calling in the troops. Right now they are nothing to her and yet the sheep still defend her. Their loyalty (if that is what it is) surpasses their intelligence. Or is it stubbornness...refusal to admit that she doesn't give a rat's rear end about them? The psychology of it all is so intriguing.

JM said...

I've been curious about the legal custody issue; it all depends on the definition the court is using. What I've seen in the PA statutes says that person can decide schooling, physician, etc. It actuallly uses the "etc." so that is what I'm curious about. Does the definition the court uses actually include the right to enter the children into a contract for anything but most especially filming? Wonder if that is actually spelled out in an order in their case.
Admin, do you know, generally not specifically in their case, if that is included in a definition of legal custody? Could that be put in an order exactly what is included in legal custody? Thanks.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Because the right to film your child for reality T.V. is such a new concept it was not anticipated when custody statutes were written. That's what Tamara and Simon are fighting right now, exactly what does it mean in terms of filming our kids now that we're separated. Can Simon stop it just when they are with him or can he stop it when they are with her too? Does he have veto power because he shares custody?

So the answer is it's unclear. And the problem is the only way to test the waters is to go to court, spend thousands of dollars, lose, spend thousands of dollars more on an appeal, and have the appellate court judges decide what it means.

The irony is because so few people have the money for that or even the inclination to go through such a battle, it might not happen or it could be years. I don't think Jon is going to be the one leading the charge on that.

I suspect he knows like we all do that this is going to be one 42 minute special, mostly with Kate talking about herself, and it's done. TLC might not check in again until they are 16 or never. I don't know, is it really worth the aggravation?

PatK said...

TLC can make Kate look good on the update special, but CA won't. Oh, the meltdowns and crying will be glorious to watch!! I just wish we didn't have to wait until Fall/Winter.

And who will the six diehard sheepies blame? Jon? DT? The non-fans? And there's no voting involved! What WILL they do...what will they do?? Someone will have to hang for this! But not Katie Irene.

Yep, I can't wait.

Blowing In The Wind said...

This is, of course, why he's having you on the show. It's gonna make some great "television".

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

If she's smart enough to realize this, she doesn't care. The only thing that she knows is that she's back on television, showing the world (and Milo) that she's still relevant. The fact that she's put on there as the buffoon means nothing to her. Someone wanted her, and the reason is irrelevant. It's pathetic

JM said...

Thanks Admin. I agree.
On the twitter fans, I wonder if they are communicatin in other ways? since none of the main ones seem to be curious about her nontweeting. Just a though.

I swear in the second clip where Steve was shown again he was reclined on that coach but it was SO quick I could barely tell. LOL.

====

I find it kind of creepy how he's always sort of slouching around in the background trying to be all inconspicuous, like the first time he was filmed sitting in the back of the airplance on the flight to Utah in a 'I'm not here, you can't see me' way. He always seems to get caught though, like in this clip.

He needs to start wearing a disguise before his colleagues in the bodyguarding profession start making fun of him for having such a cushy job.

Beyond DIsgusted said...

Hey, Milo! Kate's no longer trending on Yahoo, having been replaced by prom dresses and lawn care!

OrangeCrusher1 said...

I so agree, fighting this probable one off TLC 'special' is not worth the aggravation. 42 minutes of fluff and TFW shooting off her mouth. Too bad the kids spent spring break with cameras in their home and in their faces, but we all know how much screaming with delight went on there.

So where will Skeevio go when the celeb-douches get sequestered together ? Eyes rolling.

-------------------------------
Another comment (I liked your post FlimsyFlamsy).

You are right, Kate does NOT have people skills which will be an absolute must in order to be a project manager on CA and to create allies/friends with the other contestants.

Kate has shown her short temper, bad moods (when she gets tired or as she claims "her blood sugar is low"), impatience, and attitude of superiority on film and other media. How is she going to treat the other contestants when she is forced to do work that she feels others should do for her? When she gets tired? When her nail breaks? When the others bond and she is left out? When she can see that they don't like her? When she is told she is not working hard enough? When she is told by others to work? When she has no one to call for contributions? When she fails and fails and fails while the others succeed?

She will NOT be able to hide her entitled and unpleasant self when she is on CA. It will show all over her face with her nasty looks and attitudes to the other contestants.

And there is no way that any of the other woman on CA will put up with one nasty look from Kate without giving it right back to her. Kate will not be able to hold her own with them because she will not have "bullyville", TLC, or Steve to defend her. She will be on her own.

And Kate has also shown that she can not forgive and forget. So as soon as someone calls her out on CA, that will be the end of that relationship.

If Kate is paying Steve to be around during CA, he will really earn his money when she is done sreaming and complaining how everyone hates her, wah wah wah.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Celeb Apprentice doesn't usually allow people to talk much about their home lives and so on so no matter how much she tries to invoke Jon or the kids as her excuse it might not even make the cut. No one gets a chance like on DWTS to talk about their personal lives, with rare exception and it's always quick, like when they are delivering a check to a charity that helps people with some disorder their brother has or something. Even if she tried I really think Ivanka and Donald wouldn't care.

It's basically going to be this is reality T.V. star and author Kate Gosselin and that's it, from there on out she will have to work hard, work smart, and work quick if she wants to have even a hope of making it past the first few episodes.

And it's going to be glorious.

NJGal51 said...

CA tends to bring out the worst in some people and apparently films just about everything AND takes great pleasure in showing the participants at their worst. Dionne Warwick is a good example of this. Icon figure in music however she came across as a spoiled, petulant, lazy, uber bitch on the show. I don't think doing CA did much for her career because after seeing her on CA I certainly had a different opinion of her. And Meatloaf and Gary Busey? Those dudes are certifiable. I think CA films everything and then edits it to show the worst because that's what people want to see. But the bad behavior has to be there in order for them to film it. If there's no bad behavior or tantrums I doubt that TFW will get much camera time because she's just not that interesting otherwise. I predict that she's going to start out trying to be a mother hen or organizer (because she's got 8 kids dontchaknow) but that persona probably won't last long as the others roll right over her.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Yes agree Orange.

In a perfect world with unlimited time and resources yes it would be great to try to take her to court over the special (and very likely lose when the judge says but Mr. Gosselin isn't this just one brief update special that only has a three-day shooting schedule with only 10 or so minutes devoted to the children themselves and the rest will be old clips or Ms. Gosselin?)

Plus now the update special can yammer on about CA so that will be some nice filler and take the heat off the kids.

I think if we're being resourceful here, it might be better for him to save his battle for if she ever actually tries to get a series with them again. THEN he's going to have a leg to stand on, but he won't be in a very good position if he blew all his money on attorney fees fighting all these other little things.

Never watched CA but this is how I imagine KK's introduction will go:
KK: Um, Um you may recognize me from my Teevee reality show. J&K plus 8, We brought in very high ratings for TLC.

When my ex decided to leave me, I continued with Kate+8 which starred me and my 8 kids traveling all over the world.

I am also writer, my books were on the NY Bestsellers list.(lie #1, Beth wrote them).

I was also on DWTS, I lasted for 5 weeks. My partner was Tony and he just did not know how to help me get the routine straight. (lie #2)

I was also on CWS, I swapped places with KW. She clearly does not know how to handle children, I had some very harsh words for her after spending time with her husband and child. Hank and little Hank loved me, everyone loves me when they meet me. (lie #3)

I also wrote articles for Coupon Cabin and The Stir, my contracts ran out but the comments were all positive. (lie #4)

I have lots of followers on Twitter and tweet when I have the time to all my friends there. (lie #5)

I have a bodyguard the is by my side for every event because you never know when someone may try to get too close. (lie #6)

I am here to win CA so everyone look out( giggles like a 12 year old).
I promise to put my intelligence and knowledge to good use and support for my charity of choice. (lie #7)

Then she gives everyone a big, huge smile and shows her sunken horse faced ugly teeth. Someone please throw that horse mouth a sugar cube.

The lying, liar that lies. When will Karma bite her in the ass?

So if she gets eliminated early, she cannot tweet about home because people will know she didn't last? I can see she would have to stay the whole time. Wow. A paid vacay in NYC with Uncle Steve to escort her. No wonder she was giddy.

AuntieAnn said...

CA might not allow Kate to blather on about her personal life but I'm willing to bet every time she's assigned to something, she'll say she has eight kids, so she knows how to organize, or she knows how to take charge because she has eight kids, or she knows how delegate because she has eight kids, she knows what sleep deprivation is, she has eight kids, she knows what hard work is, she has eight kids. She'll get it in there. She has to, she has nothing else.

I find it kind of creepy how he's always sort of slouching around in the background trying to be all inconspicuous

&&&

It's very "no-name husband of a B-lister"-y. If that makes sense. Always sort of lurking around in the background holding her purse, always being asked to step out of the shot on the red carpet. The press always mixing you up with someone else like one of the Beach Boys, or always spelling your name wrong. Most people know he's so and so's husband but he never says anything. It's weird, I guess in a sort of sexist way. I guess you expect the woman to be in that sort of shadow role.

...... she will have to work hard, work smart, and work quick if she wants to have even a hope of making it past the first few episodes.

--------------------------------
That made me laugh! Maybe she will work as hard, smart, and quick as she did on DWTS? Oh that's right, she didn't.

Also, funny that Leeza Gibbons (also will be on CA too) was on DWTS and had Tony D. as partner.

They got along GREAT - and to qoute from an article: When Leeza was voted off she said "I'll miss spending time with Tony, that's for sure." The feeling was mutual. "I think we went out on a high note because I really love the way Leeza danced the paso doble," said Dovolani.

And other comments: "I'm sad to see Leeza go. I cried," said judge Carrie Ann Inaba. "She's a great role model for women."

"She radiates positivity," said Ian Ziering, adding "she's charming, lovely, beautiful and showed that she's sexy as well."

And Leeza was 50 years old when she did DWTS!

Funny that Kate never received such comments from Tony, Carrie Ann, or the other contestants when she was voted off. Hmmmm, I wonder why? Did NO ONE like her?!?!

Never watched CA but this is how I imagine KK's introduction will go:

&&&

I don't think she's going to be allowed an intro that long. And now they're saying it's only an hour, so it will be even less likely. If I'm remembering correctly it really is very quick when they explain who everyone is. Model so and so, TV host so and so, reality T.V. star so and so. Pick the project managers and in two seconds flat you're doing your first task.

That's why I'm saying she's not going to get her usual chance to frame herself the way she wants to, and it's about time.

I suspect he knows like we all do that this is going to be one 42 minute special, mostly with Kate talking about herself, and it's done. TLC might not check in again until they are 16 or never. I don't know, is it really worth the aggravation?

444444444444444

He also surely must know that there will 14 seconds of new film devoted to each child and the rest will be Kate and Kate Plus Kate, with plenty of cackling, hand flapping, and ME ME ME, I I I , and "I threw my husband out 42 years ago and the prick had a lot of nerve actually leaving! Do you realize that *I* had to notice my children because of HIM!?!"
If it was going to be a show about the kids, he might be concerned, but the only mention Kate will make about the kids is how much each one strains her.

Admin - I flat out refuse to watch anything with that cackle bitchy voice, those horse teeth, or those hands flapping, but I will indeed look forward to your recaps.

Great post mammaK and oh so true.
-------------------------------------------
So true. Kate has been doing that for years.

One of the funniest times was when she called into The View (after she co-hosted) to LIE about how she had a purse full of bills to pay and she said to all the hosts that she missed them SO MUCH and they responded with silence...like "What? We're not your friend!"

Kate thinks because she meets a real celebrity during an interview or appearance that they automatically are friends and she is in with the "cool kids". She has no self awareness (thank you Carrie Ann Inaba) to know that they are just doing their job and have NO personal relationship with Kate nor do they want one.

Poor Kate. What table does she belong to? She thinks she is too cool for the "mediocre" local Pennsylvania table but doesn't realize that she will NEVER be cool enough for the Hollywood celebrity table. So she is that SAD girl that has NO ONE to sit with (unless she PAYS Steve) and it is no one's fault but her own.

Just like on DWTS, I think we will see how much she does NOT fit in when she is on CA!

It makes perfect sense to me. However there comes a point when they get tired of being in the background. Kind of like the Long Island medium's husband trying to make a name for himself now and grab some of the spotlight. He got tired of lurking in the background. Toward the end of the show Steve got himself more camera also.

grandee4 said...

Thanks Twit, everyone please feel free to add to list about how KK's words are all lies.
Admn, I know they would not give her that much of an intro. If so, I could certainly see all the eye rolls and DT himself taking his $1000 sock off, stuffing it in her horse teeth mouth while the others stand up and clap. KK would look around and think they are all clapping for her.

She gives the saying "dump blonde" a whole new meaning.

Meagler said...

I hope Jon does nothing this time around about custody...even if he didnt get first right of refusal. He will still get his Tuesday nights and weekends, and hopefuly have contact with the kids ( text/phone) to be certain theya re safe. No this isnt perfect...ut..

I want to see TFW fall flat on her butt without any excuses. When on DWTS, the child custody suit was presented and she used that as her excuse.

I am glad this is somthing the kids wont be filmed for, however they do end up without a parent, if Jon doesnt have them. This I am okay wit, as long as minimal harm is on the children. Many Actors have kids and are gone for periods of time. Its the filming of the kids I dont like.

I have never watched CA, but let me tell ya.. Kate is a master mind all right, in a perect world where she got to say " This is how it is" and people jumped to make it happen. She was able to walk over JOn because he lost his backbone...however...

The other contestants, likely have backbones. Kate has no idea how to walk over other people. It might get really really nasty. TFW's mean girl might really come out.

If Kate thought cooking chicken over an open fire, while Jamie and Ashley played with the kids, was too hard... this is going to BREAK her!

If the shot of her whining in the back of the limo at DWTS because she was soooo tired to continue on....this is going to BREAK her.

I think Kate might be in for the SHOCK of her life.

Wanna bet her charity will be the hospital her sextuplets were born at....

I saw this comment on a message board talking about the upd8 show and I thought it was quite funny. The commenter quotes part of the news release about the show, and then make her comment.

"The TLC special will get Jon & Kate fans "up to speed" on what has changed for the family since the show ended. The network also promises to reveal how much the kids have grown, and will also feature Kate's evolving life and career."

"So...this show is for people who don't have the internet?"

Evolving? I think she's still in the Neanderthal age. There's a ways to go.

Does CA do the little interview after they're fired?
_________________________

Every contestant (even the eventual winner) is pre-filmed doing a walk of shame out to a waiting cab. The footage is then used when the contestant is actually fired. Inside the cab, the fired contestant is briefly filmed reflecting on his/her experience/firing/other contestants.

Kate will be the team member who ends up as the gopher, because she has no valuable skills to help the team win. They will give her a list and send her to the party store, or the craft store, or the hardware store, etc., to shop for supplies because that is where she can do the least damage.

I really hope they DO make the mistake of allowing her to proofread materials for an ad campaign. I can just picture a men's "cologne" ad turning very quickly into a men's "colon" ad in her incapable hands!

Call Me Crazy said...

I just read an excerpt about CA from Penn Jillette's book (he was on the show twice). He has always acknowledged that show business is nothing compared to "real" jobs. Here is a little of what he had to say:

"The secret truth of “The Celebrity Apprentice” is that it isn’t very hard. The tasks are nothing. Makeup starts just after 5 a.m. and the show goes to about 10 p.m., but you spend most of that time doing nothing. Anyone who isn’t in show business could accomplish everything the show called for and have time left over to do their laundry, cook their supper and post pictures of their animal companion on Facebook. “The Celebrity Apprentice” is easy like junior high is easy. All the arithmetic, the creative writing and the history are super simple, but like junior high, you do that easy work surrounded by people who are full-tilt hormone-raging bugnutty. Everyone is panicked, desperate, yelling, swearing, attacking, backstabbing, failing to get laid and acting crazy. With all this drama, any sane person just wants to do more algebra. “The Celebrity Apprentice” is junior high with a better brand of acne cover-up."

I never knew that as I've only watched bits and pieces of CA in the past. So that explains why the fired contestants are wearing different clothing on the walk of shame vs. what they were wearing when they got fired in the boardroom?

The cab interview is the one thing TFMJG will have framed and ready to go. She'll start off saying she's proud of her effort on CA, the contributions she was able to get for her charity, etc. but she was ganged up on and the team wouldn't utilize her 'cough' unique talents. But it's ok, she's got to get back to her 8! kids, grifting, throwing their father under the bus, her hotel time with Skevee, and begging for her next opportunity to be on Tevee, etc.

&&&

Well, I don't think it's very hard for HIM. I think he is of superior intelligence, work ethic, drive, and all the other skills necessary to make this show "easy". I think he's an unusual specimen. That's like a physics professor saying physics is not hard because I can do an equation in a minute and a half. Physics is hard to most reasonable people. Just cause it's easy for a genius doesn't mean it's not hard for most people. Penn I'm sure is one of those people who can read a novel in a day, fix the kitchen clock in under a minute, come up with some new magic trick and perfect it in one afternoon, things like that. That's Penn. Life is easy for him, and you can choose to hate someone like him for it or just enjoy the treat of watching him.

I think from what we've read of most cast members is that it is very taxing, both physically and emotionally, and that the days are very long, and the people are very cutthroat.

I do agree with him though that like any TV show there is probably a heck of a lot of sitting around because other people are working on other moving parts of the show to make it happen and you aren't needed yet. Terrel's video just shows that it's sort of like, report to set at 5am, makeup wardrobe, sit around/stand around until 10am shooting the shit with the cast and crew or your fans on the internet. Eat. From 1 to 2 Rush-rush-rush take photos do this do that, sit around for another four hours, rush rush rush again, eat, sit around, then bed.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Terrel even said they were in an undisclosed location. I don't think Kate is in danger of a fan attack if no one even knows where they are. I'm sure production has their own security, go home Steve and stop cashing in the children's money.

TLC stinks said...

So will she send Steve to do errands? LOL. Even if she doesn't, she simply cannot navigate anywhere without Steve at her side. She'll have to sneak him like she did for the Las Vegas marathon ( I just know she cheated at that with him. No. Doubt. What a funny sight it must have been with Steve on the golf cart trailing her. Wow. That would have been a money shot.

I guess Robert has nothing to say about anything.

TLC stinks said...

Steve is not security. He's her MANager, male escort, dinner companion, purse holder, door opener, and partner in crime. It's gotten to the point where it's one big joke that you don't see one without the other. It must have killed Kate when he went on vacation with his "other" family. How dare he!

Didn't he reference "Pier something" or "Pier 50 something" at the beginning of the video? In one of the first links posted to the video, I think it even referenced a pier. No biggie as by the time any rabid fan made it down there, they CA contestants could have been gone/the rabid fans wouldn't have made it past security. Maybe Skeevee would have had to jump in with his awesome security skills!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Yes I heard him say they're at Pier 50 or whatever it was. Which is just a way to reference what part of NYC. There are a number of piers along the Hudson river, and to say you're in pier 50 area could cover at least several blocks if not more. There's no way of the dozens of buildings in that area anyone would ever know which one they are in, plus I assume both the building and of course CA itself has its own security.

In Los Angeles, it would be like saying I'm in the Manhattan Beach area or the Zuma Beach area. You get a general idea of the location but you'd never find someone there without more specific information.

The photo looks like it was taken at one of the golf areas at Chelsea Piers. They probably rope off or curtain an area when filming. Chelsea Piers is huge and I doubt they can keep people from seeing these contestants - sheesh, it's NYC and when word gets out there's a tv show shooting, fans gather. Mostly tourists, true NYers really don't care much. LOL.

Maybe Kate's been fired already! Personally, I hope she's there for a while; the more humiliation, the better!

Also, I was remembering that when it gets down to the final challenge, all the contestants come back to help the finalists and then they sit on the stage while Trump decides the winner. So, she'll be around even after she's fired. Oh ... it's coming back to me...I think I read that the contestants that live in or near NYC or have apts there don't stay in the designated Trump quarters. They can go home. Wonder if that will include Kate. Perhaps some of the locals can share any sitings?

I agree. Penn really is a brilliant guy. I think what he is saying, though, is that the manufactured "work" they are tasked with is just pretend, and them being fired is pretend, so it can in no way compare to the pressures of hard-working people who must work real jobs.

It sounds like the most difficult part of the experience is dealing with the trauma and fighting and egos, and what Penn describes as "panicked, desperate, yelling, swearing, attacking, backstabbing, failing to get laid and acting crazy" contestants. I'm convinced that these things, along with the 5:00 AM call times, the long days, the requirement to do even a small bit of work, her inherent stupidity and ignorance, and her sense of entitlement will lead to meltdowns of epic proportions from Kate.

I NEVER watch anything Kate is on, but I always watch CA so I will have to bite the bullet and tune in. I can't wait to see her eyes glazing over and hear her incoherent rambling. I am looking forward to some excellent recaps!

lukebandit said...

I love this song by Looking Glass.

The contestants say "Brandi, you're a fine girl" (you're a fine girl)
"What a good CA you would be" (such a fine girl)
"Yeah your eyes could steal Steve away from the B" !!!

Yeah, Brandy would watch his eyes
When he told his kate stories
She could feel the ocean foam rise
She saw kate's ragin' glory

But Steve had always told the truth, lord, he was her purse carrying man
And Brandy does her best to understand (while tweetin` to her fans)!

At night when the tasks close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves that kate who's not around
She still can hear her say

She hears her say " Brandy, you're a fine girl" (you're a fine girl)
"What a good CA you would be" (such a fine girl)
"But my life, my lover, my married man is the Steve"

I wonder if when kate is fired, will she do the walk of shame out the lobby of the hotel and get into the car and do the backseat commentary? Bet dollars to donuts Steve will be sitting in the back with her out of frame.

Can you imagine some of the women will know about her and that Steve is married. Can you imagine them talking about it when she is not around. Sorry kate, you can' get that signed on the dotted line on one of your life threating non-disclosure agreements! haha

Oh, My, LANTA! Thanks Flimsy-Flamsy!

Yes I think that's a fair statement. The tasks themselves are pretty high school. Come up with a new ice cream flavor, come up with an advertising campaign for a swanky new car. The challenge is the very long shooting days, regardless whether you are waiting around for a lot of it, and having to work with a bunch of nut jobs.

______________________

They usually only bring back about 6 of the most recently fired contestants to help the finalists. I can't imagine TFW making it far enough along to be a helper at the end, unless she is such a delicious train wreck that DT keeps her for the drama (ala Busey). They do bring back all the contestants to sit on the stage at the finale.

CA tends to bring out the worst in some people and apparently films just about everything AND takes great pleasure in showing the participants at their worst. Dionne Warwick is a good example of this. Icon figure in music however she came across as a spoiled, petulant, lazy, uber bitch on the show. I don't think doing CA did much for her career because after seeing her on CA I certainly had a different opinion of her.
********
I remember being so disappointed in Dionne Warwick. Like you, I've never had the same appreciation for her since. Some people should not expose their true natures to the public. Kate is one of those people.

So I am waiting with bated breath to see her implode right before our eyes. She does not have the capability of holding it together, of taking on unusual demands with good grace, or dealing with criticism. She's going to lose it and I want them to film it and show it.

But when she does - she'll cry crocodile tears and claim that she so misses her eight, count 'em eight, preemie children, that she could barely function. And her idiot fans (all four of them), will fall for it.

I too am wondering how much they will allow Steve to be involved. I have a feeling that she will need to keep him close at all times, but I'd be really irritated to see him in the background while she's supposed to be doing tasks, etc.

rainbowsandunicorns said...

I find it kind of creepy how he's always sort of slouching around in the background trying to be all inconspicuous, like the first time he was filmed sitting in the back of the airplance on the flight to Utah in a 'I'm not here, you can't see me' way. He always seems to get caught though, like in this clip.

Is that the time when nobody really knew who the Silver Fox (aka Mr. Gray) really was, and wondered who grabbed one of the girls' arms? If I recall, she turned and looked at him like, "Who do you think you are, and get your grubby ratclaws off me?"

rainbowsandunicorns said...

I was reading over at Kate's TL and it looks like the sheeple are under the impression that this is a new series, with their "OMG...Kate is coming back to television" comments. I wonder how many of them understand that this is a special containing clips of past shows, and will last less than an hour?

Has anyone told them about that, or should they just find that out on their own? :I think it's rather amusing, actually.

NJGal51 said...

TFW will only get money for her charity if she takes on the role of Project manager and her team wins.

She won't be able to sneak Steve in anywhere or have him step & fetch for her because there will always be production assistants, camera crews and other contestants around. She's on her own for this one and if she starts crying her famous tissue poke in the eye tears she will be called out on it.

I think Penn should have won the all stars CA.

Rainbowsandunicorns - Those that are still gushing about the upd8 on TFW's timeline are only twitterbots being paid to be excited about the show.

With Katie on the show DT sees dollar signs. I would have like to have been a mouse during negotiations with her and Trump to see if Trump gave into her demands. If she is on the show will Trump cut her some slack and leave the harsh criticism for the other contestants. Surely Trump won't make her cry but some show some compassion for this mother of 8 if she goofs up. We will have to wait and see but I wouldn't put it past Trump to use the compassion card to make himself look human and a good guy. These actions will come in handy especially since he wants to run for Guv'na of New York. We might see a kinder gentler DT instead of a hard ass which might get him some voters who think DT really cares about NY'ers. I also see Katie teaming up with Miss Brandi making fast friends because both are considered the bad girls of TV. I personally would like to see the Trumps take Kate down but I think she will be spared their harsh comments. It will all be in the contract.

Jeremy said...

Does anyone know who the guy in the purple shirt was in Terrell Owens video? I just did a twitter search on Kevin Jonas and they look nothing alike. Plus Kevin was apparently at the meadowlands in NJ today. Keesha instagramed a photo of her boarding a small plane to Syracuse, geraldo will be on Fox live from NY tonight, Gilbert G is performing a show. Maybe Friday was press photos and filming starts Monday? Or they have weekend evenings off?
I saw the TO video clip. The first shot could be kate, though her legs look to slim. The second sighting where she is coming behind TO and in front of Steve definitely looks like Leeza Gibbons. So I'm undecided. Also, if Johnny Weir was really planned as a contestant, maybe his imploding divorce caused him to withdraw, and caused the delay in announcing.

NJGal51 said...

Sorry D.Geary but I think you're giving TFW more credit that she deserves. When DT looks at her he doesn't see $$$ signs he just sees another D-lister for his show. TFW has been out of the limelight for too long to have any negotiation powers at all. Brandi is on a hit show and would have much more cachet with DT than TFW as would TO. The way I see it is TFW's people have been lobbying for a spot on the show for her for years and they were finally able to get one. Nope, TFW will get the same deal that ever other D-lister gets on the show. Nothing more, nothing less.

Formerly Duped said...

From Hollywood Gossip re: the special with the kids:

“They’re funnier, the conversations we have now are hysterical. They want to give me fashion advice and dating advice and all these other things. ' Apparently they "will play an even bigger role in the special, since they are much older now. ' Play a bigger role than Cara's silence on the interview? Or the boys on KC clip?

Jumping In said...

Millicent 98.....I thought the same thing! TFW will use her 8 kids every time she is overwhelmed by a task then tell her team how hard it is being away from them. I don't have kids, but would missing one child, or two any different from missing eight? If she uses them as an excuse, wouldn't other contestants who are parents be insulted? Of course, her crocodile tears begs the question, why be away from them in the first place? Oh, that would bring on a secondary round of pretend tears, because she is the sole provider of 8 kids and is doing CA for THEM. It's all about sacrifice for TFW.

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

Donald Trump stated on twitter that he is not going to run for Governor of NY. He also stated elsewhere that he would only run for governor if there was no primary for the Republican candidate, and he was the only candidate considered. Guess they didn't go along with him.

He always blows hot air about running for political office--NYC Mayor, NY Governor, and President, but he never does. Although he always states he would win if he did run. Talk about ego!!

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

Do you mean the one in the pinkish shirt that Terrell filmed right after he says "no, I'm filming HIM"? I've been trying to figure that out too. BTW, Kevin Jonas was mentioned and shown in the video.

I wonder if this guy was a last minute replacement for one of those rumored to be on. He doesn't look like any of the rumored cast. Gilbert Gottfried also was not mentioned in any of the casting rumors, so I wonder if he also was a last minute replacement for someone like David Hasselhorf, or Johnny Weir.

How do you tell the bots from the random fans? I don't have twitter, but I know that bots use keywords, and this time it seems to be "excited," and you can tell they are bots by the multiple tweets that say basically the same thing. However, with one like this, is it a bot or a not-a-bot?

LoveMyGrandsons said...

Just to add my 2 cents here: of course TFW will use the kids as an excuse why she can't concentrate, work hard, etc. She did that on DWTS. It was never her fault that she didn't put in the effort.

When she was on DWTS, she should have been cut alot sooner that she was, and she should have gotten much lower scores than she did. So I knew there was some kind of arrangement there, albeit TLC's doing.

TLC may not be involved with CA, but why is Steve there? Since none of the other people, that I am aware of, have "bodyguards" so close by, why does she? It makes me wonder if CA is in on this too. No, DT doesn't need the money, but by keeping the show on, he sure is looking for ratings. So would he give in to her demands, some of them, for what he thinks will be good ratings? I don't know, but he might. After all, with all of his money, he's still doing this show so he knows ratings are what keeps it on the air.

Lalalalala said...

Part of this show is becoming friendly and getting to know your co-contestants. Ya know, things like talking, having coffee together, sharing experiences and just generally getting to know the other people in the cast. I can't see Kate doing that. I think she'll spend every and any spare moment with Stevie. That's not going to sit well with anyone. That will be the first HUGE mistake she makes.

I can't wait for this season to start. It's like waiting for that train you know will crash and burn.

Jeremy said...

I think collectively we have examined Terrell Owens video more than the Zapruder film was analyzed! Still on the fence between kate and leeza. But toward the beginning, the woman who says "are you filming me?" Is the woman siting on the chair talking to Gilbert g. She is telling him something about a Today show appearance to promote CA and jokingly says to him " do what I tell you" at least I hope she was joking! And asks if she is being filmed. Then Jonas walks by in the black suit, and he is the same guy with pics tweeted of him in NJ today at Meadowlands racetrack. THEN the guy who makes an entrance in the pink (my mistake before, not purple ) shirt is Johnny Damon. TO make another video tonight, going back in a cab, alone, to Trump hotel. Confirmed his worst kept secret that he was on CA, but no details.

@ljohnson2006: So many people will watch this @Kateplusmy8 special. We genuinely want what's best for her and the kids. @TLC should give u a new show

Exactly, LMG.

She used rushing home to the kids as her excuse for doing 88mph. At 1:20am. Yeaaahh right. Fortunately the Trooper didn't buy it and gave her the ticket anyway.

She has blamed the kids numerous times for not dating at all. Jenny Masche found a new (cute!) husband right away.

She uses the kids as an excuse for not venturing out in public with them hardly at all, claiming there would be a panic. Jon takes all the kids out in public all the time.

This show leaves her very little wiggle room for her whining and excuses. She knows exactly what she's getting in to.

He finished his entree seven minutes early and then kind of stood there chewing on a piece of steak while watching Carnie Wilson and Lou Diamond Phillips run around in a panic to complete their dishes on time. He said something like he just wants to get his tasks finished early. lol! He was just so cool about the whole competition. Easy peesy, no sweat attitude. I love the guy.

So she's gonna be on? I won't watch. if you are wondering how her 6 fans are going to make a difference...they wont. All the haters watching will. We all know there are more haters than fans.
Why watch this crap? DT is only putting her on the show for one reason....guaranteed flow of responses on any story written about her on anything. RATINGS! and the haters are going to give him what he's after ten fold.
Yes I want her to fail and she will...But I don't and won't give her 1st hand attention. Really you cant find something else to do on the night the show is on? Make something out of her cookbook? Look up her driving record? Play the blame game? Read her books you didn't buy? ect ect... Sorry to be so mean ...but I thought people here were more intelligent than this.

lukebandit said...

The grassy knoll! I thought that when I first read that this video had been examined and analyzed thoroughly. Wouldn't it of been incredible if the guy with the camera had been on the opposite side of the street on the grassy knoll and turned around and got film of the man running away!

I didn't see Kate in the video, but it sure looked like Steve was once again, warming a couch for a living.
What a riveting job. Must make his kids proud.

lukebandit said...

Please, I am begging!

If anyone photoshoppes, Please! photoshoppe Steve into the group picture of the CA contestants. Hopefully, kate will be on the outside of the group so he could be placed right behind her, or if she is sitting in the middle of the group, place his head on top of her shoulder like a two headed monster they truly are! hahaha!

Also, one more request. Everybody has heard or seen the Vogue cover of Kim and Kayne. Disgusting. IMO, I believe Kayne paid AW to put them on the cover. Vogue was classic, and you don't mess with that. AW sold out. You don't put a woman who was in a sex tape getting urinated on and enjoying it and this was the start of her "career"!

After seeing the Vogue cover, Sarah Michelle Gellar tweeted that she was canceling her subscription and who's with me? Way to go!

Please photoshoppe kate in the wedding dress and Steve in the tux on the Vogue cover. This would be so hilarious and so much viral potential, Smashing!

2 guys on the Vogue cover, photoshopped! Seth Rogen and James Franco. They also recreated Kim K sitting on the motorcycle turned toward Kayne! hahaha

Please! Bwahahahahaha

Winsomeone said...

I think everyone is going to be disappointed as to how Kate is treated on CA. Everyone said Whoopi and Joy would tear her a new one, and they softballed her. DWTS, she was so terrible, and yet was given higher scores than she earned and kept longer than she deserved. I think this will be the same way..she will be treated with kid gloves like she always is. I think she has that written into her contract.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Here's a theory about TFW being on twitter silence (besides the usual -
she's getting her narcissistic supply from other sources). I wonder if she's intimidated by The Donald, and is trying to mind her P's and Q's? We know she's all about money and fame, and she may truly see this as her ticket to the next level of stardom. Could she possibly be on her -- if such a thing exists -- "best behavior?"

If not, I say it was Colonel Mustard in the conservatory with a wrench.

US mag did a poll asking readers whether they would be watching the upd8 special. Out of 17,500 respondents, 84% said would not. Only one vote can be accepted per IP address. So no sheeples, we didn't all go over there and vote no over & over again.

You are correct, NJ. The sheeple genuinely do not care whatsoever for Kate or her kids. They only genuinely care about hating Jon and thumbing their hooves at us. What kids? Kate has kids?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Celebrity Apprentice has never treated any contestant with kid gloves in the history of the show, including disabled contestants like deafness, legitimately brain damaged contestants (Gary Busey had brain injuries he never recovered from in a motorcycle accident years ago and this is well documents), and senior citizens.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

And they care about what they are getting out of the situation. How THEY get an update and peek into the family's life. The jollies they get out of it without regard for the children's wishes. They sound so selfish yet they don't see it.

Jumping In said...

Winsomeone....146...I tend to agree with you, and your thinking remains one of the great mysteries around Kate. Why is she never called out on what seems to be so obvious, the exploitation of her own children. Even when she appears without them, she is there BECAUSE of them. They are her vehicle, the reason she manages to wrangle these shows for herself.

Indeed, she stayed on DWTS either because the show was rigged for ratings or because people actually voted to watch a train wreck. But all the while, Kate maintained (through every embarrassingly awkward dance move) that she did the show for her kids.

How she'll use her children on CA remains to be seen, but I imagine she'll find a way to evoke sympathy by using them when she finds her back against the wall.

NJGal51 said...

Agree Admin. CA doesn't give special treatment to anyone. Why do so may think TFW will be treated with kid gloves? She just doesn't have the star power to have anything written into her contract any more. The other participants on the show don't care about what's in anyone's contract but their own and will not put up with her crap because it's all about winning. When you beg to be on a show, the show holds all the cards. As I said in an earlier post I think TFW's people have been trying to get her on the show for years and it finally worked. I sometimes think the worst behavior gets more air time because everyone loves a train wreck.

This is true, CA contestants have never gotten any special soft treatment.... but I tend to agree with Winsomeone.. somehow TFW will.

I just don't see her agreeing to do this if she was told she WILL have to work, she WILL have to be accountable for her actions and she WILL have to play on the same playing field as every other contestant. She is always handled with kid gloves and special treatment other real and talented celebrities and artists are often not given the benefit of. The only other scenario I can think of is that she is going in intending to work and toe the line, in order to repair her terrible image and become more employable.

Ok, do those people who thought DWTS treated her with "kid gloves" actually watch the show? They showed her narcassism in ALL of its glory - her unwilliingness to work hard and blaming her failure on Tony, Carrie Ann calling her "unaware", and oh, yeah, who can forget how they made fun of her with the horrendous makeup, costume and upclose pose on her "flying" dance finale. The woman was a laughingstock nationwide during her appearance on DWTS.

Maybe they didn't tell her that. I think they just wanted her to sign on the dotted line no matter how she wanted to think her experience will go on this. Now, like every....single....contestant in the history of the show, she will have to hold her own or face the wrath of the boardroom. Don't worry, it will happen. You really think Donald had some secret meeting with the other contestants and said now guys I know we're all playing for our charities here but we're all going to treat Kate special, with kid gloves, hand hold, and make sure she gets through this experience all positive, k? Yeah right, they'd tell him hell no my charity is at stake here and if I have to throw Kate or anyone else under the bus I'm doing it!

Donald doesn't care about appeasing her or anyone else. He cares about the drama. While he may have smooth talked her into this, he's not going to put in her contract she is to be treated with kid gloves, that's silly.

I think some of us are suffering from selective memory! She's not teflon anymore with anyone but a few outlets like People magazine. Look at how both her lawsuit and the Today show backfired on her. Most people have her number now. The fact that she has decided to just keep on trucking through it instead of crawling under a rock to die is just because she's a nut with no self respect or self awareness. That's really on her, not because the public isn't aware of her shenanigans. Any other rational person would have disappeared by now. Make no mistake, Donald put her on his show because she is a freak who might cause some good fights. Not because he likes her, not because he thinks she's talented, not because he doesn't know how universally hated she is. Because he weighed public commentary and what he's seen of her behavior and determined this could be a nice recipe for drama, period.

Somewhere In Time said...

You make good points and we can only wait and see.

Has anyone else noticed that the fans, while having their wool in a bunch and telling themselves that Kate's show has been renewed (ignoring the fact that it's a one-time 1 hr. clipfest) don't seem quite as enthused about CA? Could that be because Kate, her behavior and poor temperment will be on full display without Jon, kids or haters to blame for it?

TLC stinks said...

It's simple. She is Twitter silent because she cannot tweet her usual nonsense about the kids. She knows, either reading here or a sheeple informed her, that we know what she doing, where she is, and who she is with. Without the 8 she has nothing to tweet about. Nothing. And I agree she does not care at all about her few fans. Think about how callous she and Steve were to those fans that gave her cards and homemade gifts. Into the trash and they laughed about it. I am so sorry that sheeple did not get to download Robert's book because it would have exposed her for what she is IN HER OWN WORDS.

TLC stinks said...

ITA Donald is all about ratings, $$$ and drama. I still think she did negotiate because Donald wanted her. Remember, we read about her negotiations in Robert's book and she always demanded Steve be included (salary, air fare, accommodations).

Tess said...

The woman messed up his hair. I'm going with the idea that once she signs on, he controls her storyline, and goodness knows she'll give him plenty to work with! I'm not contributing to the ratings, so will be looking forward to the recaps here :)

Carole said...

... but why is Steve there? Since none of the other people, that I am aware of, have "bodyguards" so close by, why does she?

Some CA contestants have brought PR reps, assistants/managers with them.
IDK whether their support people stay for the whole CA or leave after the initial show PR but I'd imagine some of the big stars have their people stay to run personal and business errands, etc.

Oh absolutely. They're uncomfortable. They know that this show has a very firm reputation for exposing who people really are. Some people come off like the good people they are, and some people come off like the very bad people they are. She is very likely to be just like the infamous Dionne Warwick, her reputation destroyed by doing that show, and they know it.

They can use their usual excuses about missing the kids, drama with Jon, and editing, but the rest of the public isn't going to listen or care about excuses, and they know it. They also know darn well she is lazy, and they don't want that exposed. Want don't they give it up already and come join us here! :)

The best narc moment was Kate's dance to Paparazzi. The contestants pick a tribute- a touching story-and Kate's choice was to tell her story of woe, being hounded by the paps.
It was embarrassed for her. She looked like an idiot on every level.

Don't forget...her birthday is March 28. And who will she be celebrating it with? Steve and not her kids. Oh, right. That is nothing new.

I saw the Z. camera in D.C. last year, they had it in the Newseum. It's in perfect condition because apparently it was brand new when he first used it. I took an instagram like the good history nerd that I am lol.

As far as TO's film, it has been seized by the RBI and delivered to Kodak for further processing. Stand by.

Brandi will eat her alive. Piece by piece. Licking her fingers as she goes.

With the TFW we know, yes but I have my doubts with some of the CA contestants. If the celebs on CA (and even DT) believe the old TLC scripted version of J&K they may believe her story of the poor 'single' mom of 8 doing everything herself because her cheater ex-husband abandoned the family, etc.

If she bends some ears with her poor-pitiful me storyline some may feel sympathetic and protective of her. During their shooting down-time TFW and Brandi may even bond over similarities (in TFW's head) in marriages w/infidelity and ex's new loves.

Most of the celebs have busy careers (something TFW can't relate to) and haven't paid attention to the truth about J&K's show, marriage, breakup, aftermath and depending on the persona TFW adopts for CA she may be able to sway some to her side... until she shows her lack of skills and leadership and her nasty side to them, that is!

TLC stinks said...

ITA, this CA may finally get the word out to those folks who don't pay attention to Kate to finally see what we have seen all along. How ironic. Her narcissism and greed to be on CA may be what finally takes her down.

Carole said...

Re: CA celebs doing shows on weekends, etc.
In the past many celebs have maintained their appearance schedules during CA filming, some have even left for a couple of episodes at a time to do shows. If it can work for filming and they specify that in their contracts it seems to be something that is no issue for CA. PPL like TFW - heck, what obligations does she have that she'd need to miss taping an episode?! lol

Kate is a twit said...

Donald doesn't care about appeasing her or anyone else. He cares about the drama.

I wouldn't be surprised if Donald (or someone on his staff) watched the RV episodes, and used them as her "audition" tape. That's the Kate he wants on his show--the real Kate-Kate the bitch.

Confirms filming. It appears the excitement is about Brandi and Kenya.

PatK said...

Sparkle, I agree with your comment that Kate is probaly going into this with the INTENTION of working to repair her past image; however, she won't be able to maintain it and will crack. And I predict that will happen sometime around the third week of filming (the first two being a vacation scenario to her) -- should she even make it that far without being fired.

Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!

Kate is a twit said...

I found an article that had an interview with Clay Aiken about CA. He was asked if they were allowed to have any outside help with their tasks.

Q: When doing tasks, did you get a lot of help behind the scenes from assistants or did you have to do all that work yourselves?

"Oh no, you have to do it all. The only help we get, if there’s any help whatsoever, is right when we get our task there’s about 20 minutes not filmed where we’re given sort of a dossier and told what the task will entail and what benchmarks we need to hit. We don’t get any help hitting those benchmarks. We don’t get any help with ideas. We don’t get any help with anything."

I've noticed about her is that her fantasy of how things will go is often drastically different from reality. For instance, I will win DWTS, she probably thinks she will win CA too. She also surely thought the twins would awe and amaze on the Today show too and days later Disney would call with a contract.

She just doesn't live in this world. It's wonderful to be so positive and optimistic but there's also value in knowing your own limitations too. This kind of "I can do anything" attitude probably better serves a 15 year old who wants to be a tennis star or famous actress rather than a 39 year old woman with a family who had her chance at her dreams and has eight people to focus on supporting THEIR dreams now. That's not to say there aren't many things to be accomplished once youth is over, but most people have a more realistic outlook on life.

I won't be a tennis star, but I could really enjoy playing with friends every Saturday morning. You know, things like that. More mature thinking.

TLC Stinks - When TFW was on DWTS she had the TLC machine behind her. Now it's just her. I know that Admin and I are CA devotees but those of you who think she'll be treated with kid gloves have you ever actually watched the show? Have you ever actually watched a boardroom scene? The claws come out and it's every man for himself. Even the nicest participants go at each other and DT just sits back and lets it happen. We follow TFW as do a handful of twitter sheeple & haters but the rest of the viewing public will probably be more interested in Brandi. She's got a best selling book and is on a hit show. Their attitude about TFW will be why is she even on the show.

AuntieAnn said...

Has anyone else noticed that the fans, while having their wool in a bunch and telling themselves that Kate's show has been renewed

Speaking of which, I'd laugh if this TLC upd8 on Kate includes her getting canned from Coupon Cabin and the Stir, her failed lawsuits, the Bullyvillian scandal, the catastrophic cookbook flop, and the Today show backfire.

She's been busy alright. The kids are going to school and trying to live their lives while their mother has been out there stirring up shit and getting nowhere.

TLC stinks said...

I did know this. From TVTonight.com:

Who forgot there were two endings for Celebrity Apprentice?

By David Knox on May 7, 2013 / Filed Under News 11
Sometimes there are short memories in media.

Today, News Limited reports there were two endings filmed for The Celebrity Apprentice.

“The last two years it has been well known who wins, because the show is filmed so far in advance and people talk,” a source told the Daily Telegraph.

“In this (TV) environment there’s no time for that sort of leak.”

But of course Celebrity Apprentice has actually filmed alternate endings for the past two seasons.

Last year NineMSN leaked the ending with Dicko on the day of the finale. It was one of the year’s better blunders.

In 2011 Julia Morris told TV Tonight, “They shot 4 different endings because of Twitter and Facebook and they can’t control it. So everybody won and everybody lost. It’s so ‘Who Shot JR!’”]

“The cast don’t know, the crew don’t know. The only people who know are Channel Nine and FremantleMedia and even then I think it is locked down to an absolute skeleton staff.”

Morris had no idea who won in advance of the finale screening.

It’s also a little baffling that a Nine spokesperson told the newspaper, ”One has won, but they don’t know who.

“Only Mr (Mark) Bouris and senior producers know the outcome.”

Two weeks ago Bouris told News Limited, he would not decided on the winner until the series has run its course.

“I want to watch it like viewers and see who really deserves the title at the end of the series.”
More and more it is becoming obvious that outcomes are decided on how popular contestants are with the audience, rather than being based on their actions in the series.

Carole said...

built her a dance studio in her basement to practice and flew, at their expense, Tony to practice with her in PA. They treated her special.

No more special than what they do for other celebs who have obligations while doing DWTS. Just a few weeks ago Derek was flying to and from Sochi with his partner and since then is flying back and forth with her to her competitions. All of the pros do this with their celeb if necessary. The floor wasn't really that expensive anyway.

Carole said...

How do you tell the bots from the random fans? I don't have twitter, but I know that bots use keywords, and this time it seems to be "excited," and you can tell they are bots by the multiple tweets that say basically the same thing. However, with one like this, is it a bot or a not-a-bot?

‏@ers361
OMG #KATEPLUSEIGHT IS COMING BACK IN JUNE!!!! @Kateplusmy8


This one is not a bot. Some of the bots are obvious with what they tweet and include links to articles and videos. The only way to be sure is to go to the person's twitter page and check their tweets. This particular person is a HUGE Demi Lovato fan and mostly retweets about her but sometimes tweets something original. She's real.

That's the Trump Tower where they film many of the meet and greets with The Donald and the judges. Kate must think she died and went to gold heaven. The building is so ornate, so gold, so reeking of new money. Worth seeing (anyone can walk in and hang for a bit, there are stores and places to eat).

I disagree. If you live outside of LA or are working outside of LA they are happy to accommodate you. On Kate's own season that soap opera star had his partner flying out to NYC every week so he could still do his soap opera. There have been many times when celebs have other obligations around the country and their partners go with them.

Tony has also flown out to ENGLAND to practice before the show that week with one of his partners. That's a 13 hour flight from LA, one way.

TLC stinks said...

NJgal51, you are right. I forgot about TLC involvement. I haver watched CA because I cannot stand Trump.

Winsomeone said...

One thing, Kate will not be able to use her children as an excuse for doing poorly, as no one forced her to be away from them for 4-6 weeks. What real mother would or could leave so many for so long? Also, this time she can't say it's for the money to support them, as she is making so little, after she pays Steve, she most like will be in the red.

Formerly Duped said...

Re: sheeple: I think there are two kinds. One group is Kate fans, such as Milo, or Leigh, Paige, etc and the other group is the kids' fans. Remember the creepy person who tattooed Alexis Faith on her arm?Or the one who named her son Aaden to Kate's annoyance? So the second group might not want to just see TFW on CA, but want the special to become a series.

As for me, as many others here, I watched the original show to see the kids before I soon realized what TFW was really like. I joined this site to discuss mainly the negative impact of filming and the parenting of these children with the odd Kate snark.

capecodmama said...

I agree with Admin. and other posters that TCFW will not be treated with kid gloves on CA. Donald Trump doesn't give a rat's ass about anybody but Donald Trump. Okay maybe his family but that's it. He's not going to care how TCFW is treated and even if he did the other contestants certainly won't.

With regard to TFCW being treated with kid gloves on other shows, you have to remember she had TLC behind her. She was their star back then. They made damn sure she was protected from bad publicity. Unfortunately, they couldn't protect her from herself and then it started to unravel. With regard to her recent interview on The View with M&C, do you honestly think they were going to go after her with her two children sitting there? Baba Wawa is tata now and I don't think Whoopi thinks TCFW is worth wasting her breath on. The Today Show and View interviews with TCFW and the girls really sealed the deal with how people feel about her. People hate her, hate the fact that she uses her kids to promote herself and don't want to waste their time on her.

I think people are giving TCFW way too much credit for being a draw. People who like TCFW will watch the TLC special and the rest won't. People who enjoy CA will watch it despite the fact that she is on but if someone doesn't watch that show, I doubt their going to tune in just to see TCFW. Myself, I don't watch the show and I'll happily wait for Admin.'s hysterical recap.

Oh they'll believe that the first day or two. Then they're realize she's a lazy POS and that will be over, don't worry.

LOL!

Here we go again. Remember the Seinfeld episode about the grassy knoll/spitting? Hilarious.

Admin you could start a sit-com with your blog, "Sleuthing Out Kate".

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...


Some CA contestants have brought PR reps, assistants/managers with them.
IDK whether their support people stay for the whole CA or leave after the initial show PR but I'd imagine some of the big stars have their people stay to run personal and business errands, etc.


&&&

It looked to me like that was sort of a "press day" publicity day where they take a bunch of photos and doing the opening segments. They weren't actually doing tasks yet.

I suppose in that case he might allow them to bring their "people." But after that they will have to go.

Actually I have long suspected that the reason so many celebs on that show have crumbled is because they don't have their people and can't function without their people. Sad really.

Mary said...

I also agree somewhat with winsomeone. I'm not sure about Trump treating her special but the other contestants might. I feel that it has already been decided (by the producers) she will not be one of the first to go no matter how bad she is.

I also feel that most celebrities don't even know who she is or ever watched her show. All they will know is what she is now portraying herself as: a poor single mother of eight.....her husband cheated on her, doesn't pay child support and never sees his children. Of course they will feel sorrow for her. They won't know that the marriage was already over before he started dating, that he did pay support in the past and the current arrangement was agreed upon by Kate and that he really does see his children.

Some have commented on Ivanka being tough. Hard to say how she will be towards Kate. Didn't she recently have a baby? She could be in awe of a mother with eight. Will she be the first one to say "eight children, I don't know how you do it".

AuntieAnn said...

Before Apprentice morphed into Celebrity Apprentice, it was almost educational to watch. When the Donald turned to Celebrities, it became another reality show for entertainment purposes only, for me anyway. I like CA, but I don't take it seriously anymore.

So she's gonna be on? I won't watch. if you are wondering how her 6 fans are going to make a difference...they wont. All the haters watching will. We all know there are more haters than fans.

Why watch this crap? DT is only putting her on the show for one reason....guaranteed flow of responses on any story written about her on anything. RATINGS! and the haters are going to give him what he's after ten fold.

Yes I want her to fail and she will...But I don't and won't give her 1st hand attention. Really you cant find something else to do on the night the show is on? Make something out of her cookbook? Look up her driving record? Play the blame game? Read her books you didn't buy? ect ect... Sorry to be so mean ...but I thought people here were more intelligent than this.
____________________________

Starz22 - You give Kate too much credit. I will watch CA because I have always watched CA. And I will continue to watch this "crap" as you call it, not because TFW is on, but in spite of the fact that she is on. I'll be damned if I am going to let the appearance of a woman I find morally bankrupt prevent me from watching something I enjoy. I must also say that your post, while not "mean," is very condescending and judgmental. I think the posters here have proven themselves to be quite an intelligent bunch, so questioning that intelligence is out of line.

For anyone worried that Kate will get softball treatment, you can be assured that DT doesn't give a rat's ass about Kate or what happens to her. All he cares about is putting a cast of characters together that will hopefully create a lot of drama and catfighting. She is nothing special to him. The only "special treatment" she might get is that DT may let her escape a few firings if she is a big enough trainwreck and PITA to the other contestants. And as others have already pointed out, the other contestants won't give a rat's ass about her either. They are in competition with her, and each other, so they will in no way try to make her, or anyone else, look good. On the contrary, the others will be very pleased if she looks bad.

I don't know, I think by virtue of being celebs they are a bit more aware of what's going on with other celebs. My celeb was very plugged into the celebrity world, was up on all the news better than real news. I think many consider this part of the job to be aware of what is relevant and what is not, who are the movers and shakers, what circles I need to move in, how do I get in the magazine like she did, etc.

I base this opinion also on Couples Therapy. Every single celeb there knew exactly who Jon and Kate were, and moreover, they almost universally sided with Jon and felt like Kate was a harpy. First impressions.

They may not know MUCH about them other than oh that family with eight kids, but they had exactly the right idea and I'm sure most celebs have a good general idea to.

Yes absolutely. I love the non-celeb version too. For totally different reasons.

The first couple seasons were fantastic. That's how Bill got his start and he was a star! I remember I was in school and we actually would gather at our professor's house for snacks and to watch, it was that big of a show that we would even have "gatherings"!

TLC stinks said...

If you go to Tamara Tattles (I posted link previously), make sure you read the comments. Kate is called out for being " in denial", "A-hole" and a prediction she "will fly under the radar". I think this site will be an interesting read once the show airs.

I want to add this thought. When Kate was with TLC, she able to make demands because of ratings and filmed in her comfort zone. She got a very, very big head. With CA, this is not the case. And she doesn't understand that.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Even though she has a kid now I still don't think Ivanka is going to feel much for Kate. She may be very angelic looking but she doesn't really sympathize with people or their excuses. She is very fact driven, very much like her father. She's not going to want to hear excuses or much care. She is very by the book and very honest. She will just tell it how it is.

In fact she may think the opposite, I have a kid and I still do all these things and I don't whine about it.
