Preview of Gosselin update special draws wrath from around the web

It seems we weren't the only ones horrified by Kate's treatment of Mady in the promo clip from TLC (warning, the video prominently features the children), which showed a two minute segment from the update special that will air at the end of June. The glee across her face when she described buying iPhones for the children for the purpose of taking them away was disturbing. The disrespectful manner in which Kate handled a relatively small disruption from the 13-year-old resonated negatively with bloggers around the web, and here are some of their thoughts:

"Well, Mady is still defying her mom and in this clip from their 2-hour torture piece of a special, Sergeant Asshole McPlasticFace tells her child army that she (read: the producers) have all sorts of “fun things” planned for Spring Break. Nobody makes“fun things” sound like the opposite of fun the way Kate Gosselin does." Michael K., Dlisted

"Last we saw Reading’s own Kate Gosselin, she appeared alongside her daughters for a stoically angry Today show interview that promoted their upcoming return to TLC with Kate Plus 8: Sextuplets Turn 10. Now, we’ve gotten a first look at the show, and it is similarly stoic and angry. Who would’ve thought?" Nick Vadala, Philly.com

"What TLC does not realize is they are showing Mady to be the normal one in the bunch; refusing to play along and act like everything is fine. Mady says; “we are not going to have fun." You can tell it is taking everything Kate has to not lose it.  Good job, Mady.  Let the world know how dysfunctional things really are." Miss Amia, Reality T.V. scandals
And finally a blogger at Kate's former employer, The Stir, called the stunt a "twisted trick":
"Kids test their parents' limits, and we need to set up boundaries and stick to them. It's GOOD to see Kate disciplining her kids without resorting to violence ('memba the wooden spoon incident?). That said, it seems a little odd to specifically buy something nice for your child with the intention of using it to punish them. For lack of a better word, it seems ... untrustworthy? It sounds like a Trojan Horse of parenting ... here kid, here's a gift, now I can use it to destroy you. Now, to be clear, that doesn't mean you shouldn't put limits on the use of gadgets because they are, after all, a privilege. But we are supposed to buy presents for our kids out of the goodness of our hearts, not with an ulterior motive! That's part of showing love and respect for our kids. And we all know respect is a two-way street." Jeanne Sager, The Stir
Great insight from all the above bloggers and that's only some of it.

If I had the motivation it would be pretty funny to make Kate black and white and photoshop her into a clip of Baby Jane.

Maybe someone else will take it on,

These children do not have a chance. Some say how good they have it with private school, large house, all the material things that they have worked for and earned. What this woman has done to them physically and psychology is absolutely disgusting. When will somebody rescue them so they do not live in fear.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...


So.....what happened to that money? Did Jon buy a house with whatshername with their combined $80,000? Holy shit, that's a LOT of money.

&&&

He already said what he did with it, he moved to be closer to the children. I don't think that's much money at all especially after taxes and after Liz takes her half. They have eleven kids between them. It's a paycheck for a month's work but nothing to write home about when you have that many kids. It's more than one could make at most mediocre jobs in a month, but not a CEO salary.

"They cheered like crazy," the 38-year-old revealed to the magazine." It was like I announced that it's Christmas tomorrow. Our crew walked in and it was like they had never left."

IF the kids are turning cartwheels when the crew shows up it's because it means the beatings will stop for the duration of their stay.

That's my theory and I'm stickin' to it.

OrangeCrusher1 said...

Oh my. I had not seen the full frontal of TFW in the clip, had not seen the totally faux curls cascading down past her shoulders, or the speckled on makeup. This is the image of a mom of 8? The world has seen her with her real hair stuffed under a baseball cap. The utter fakery is astounding, as are the images she wants to project of the kids squealing in delight when 'our crew' walked in the door. But as others have said, these kids have so little stimulation in their lives save school, reruns of the show and the pool. This 'special' is already unraveling before it is even shown.

AuntieAnn said...

The Baby Jane clip is eery.

I noticed Christina Crawford in the sidebar videos there , so I watched her interview with Bill Boggs.

Snippets from the interview:

...Although she spoke about her own past very little, the stories about herself were always sketchy and they changed over a period of time so that it was difficult to tell what was reality

...I think if I hadn't loved my mother and if there hadn't been good times between us, tender times, vulnerable times, close moments throughout our entire life I probably would have died in the process, killed myself or certainly never lived to a fruitful adult.

...It was no secret in the Hollywood community that we were abused. We had many servants who tried to intervene on our behalf and they were fired. There were numerous of her personal friends, her dates, even some of her husbands who tried to intervene on our behalf and were told flat-out that it was none of their business.

...The punishments had a very long duration to them, the punishment was way beyond anything that happened.

...(On the night Joan Crawford tried strangling her and someone stepped in to stop her)
That came out of some deep hidden anger where we had a confrontation. I was thirteen. Very difficult, the teenage years and I think it's perhaps simplistic to say that the hardest thing in the world is to be parent. There's no doubt about it particularly if you're a single parent and trying to combine it with a career that is so demanding. But at that particular time in her life her career was in poor shape and her alcoholism had increased considerably and all those things combined seemed to make it impossible for her to control her own inner rage and I, in most cases. was the object of her venting.

The juvenile authorities were called but they were unable to help me. My mother called the [them] on me, she wanted me to be declared incorrigible. The reason was she said she couldn't handle me anymore.

Off topic but it's so funny that Food Network has completely replaced Paula Deen with a similar gal named Nancy.

She lives on a farm and cooks good ole fashioned country food.

Same haircut, same wardrobe, same weight.... and I don't understand why someone living in upstate New York sounds like she's from the Deep South. Lol. This reminds me of that Jumping the Shark site. "Same character different actor."

I have seen those curly hair extensions at Sally Beauty Supply - around $130 or so. I wonder how much crazy Kate paid for hers.

She is nuts. This would be funny if she (or he) wouldn't be so creepy. That's not the case, though. There's no question that Gladys is off her rocker and keeps getting worse. She has convinced herself that Kate actually cares about her and the six sheep. No good can come of this...nothing whatsoever. I really don't believe that she is just a harmless obsessed fan. Whatever catfish this is, it's scary.

Imagine specials showing a day in the life of TFW...without showing/hearing *any* of the kids.

Here we have TFW waking up...at 10am. A yawn and a big stretch (to show off the new boob job), a shake of her glorious mane of hair.
Here we have TFW shrieking at the kids to bring her breakfast in bed (no problem because they were up hours ago and ate the breakfast the cook prepared).
Here we have TFW shrieking at the kids to go feed the chickens and get that )($*&% weeding done before she gets back!!!
Next up, we have TFW roaring into town, pedal to the metal, to get a massage and mani/pedi.
She calls the pap on the way to let him know that she'll be at Target in an hour.
The nanny does lunch for the kids while she's gone
She roars back home, after having a lovely lunch in town with her body guard. A "business" lunch. A long business lunch. Wink, wink.
The housekeeping is not up to her standards so when she gets home she fires the housekeeper. It's the third one this week. The agency is getting a little fed up with her so she lets them have it with both barrels.
Now we have her checking the internet to see what everyone is saying about her.
Then she spends an hour or so seeing what she can grift.
She checks to see what the cook is preparing for supper. Not good enough. She fires her, too.
She goes outside, kicks the dog just because, and then screams at the kids to get out of the pool where they've been all day.
They're not allowed off the compound or in the house.
The kids eat supper at the table, while she stays in the kitchen and monitors every.single.move with the alertness of a hawk. She wouldn't want to miss an opportunity to discipline.
Let's see...who still has their ipod yet this week? Time for them to have an infraction.
The kids silently eat, and then silently get up and begin doing their many nightly chores.
TFW goes to her room and locks the door. She'll be in there the rest of the evening, drinking her wine.
The kids fight among themselves, and eventually go to bed.

Tomorrow is groundhog day.

Time to repost a list of acronyms often used at 15 minutes. please everyone add to list as needed.
in interviews, Jon Gosselin refers to Kate as ”my former wife” and not by name. in one episode of K+8 Kate called the Grand Canyon ”a waste of space” = WOS, some use it to refer to Kate.
So Kate Gosselin = TFW (the former wife) = TCFW (the crazy former wife) = TFMJG (the former Mrs Jon Gosselin) = WOS (waste of space) = KK (Kate Kreider her maiden name) = Katie Irene Kreider (complete maiden name) and now we have Sargent Asshole McPlasticFace! Thanks Michael K.!
Also the home of TFMJG is sometimes referred to as The Orphanage since TFMJG had been so vocal about how much she enjoys getting away from there without the money makers =.children.
The formerly ever present Steve Nield, bodyguard or road manager, is also referred to as the Booby Guard (he advised her on implant size supposedly), Purse Boy (TFMJG is to important to hold her own purse), and as Rat Claws (see admin story about meeting TFMJG and Rat Claws at signing during filming of Dancing With The Stars (DWTS).
Hope this helps! Everyone, add your favorites, I have just scratched the surface!

NJ Gal, TFMJG would never pay to put on a proper Bat Mitzvah, if they were Jewish the only way the girls would get one is if tlc paid.

Milo is delusional. She thinks she and Kate have a relationship. When Milo becomes obnoxious Kate doesn't put her in time out. Milo puts herself in time out by pouting. Her last pout lasted two weeks because Kate wouldn't answer her about her challenge to walk as many miles as Kate ran. Sometimes Milo uses the face-saving "time out" excuse when she repeatedly tweets Kate and Kate doesn't answer her. And yes, she can get downright insulting at times, when she's angry she always ends her nasty comment with a fake "LOL."

Oh, shoot. I forgot about that. She was in self-imposed exile, playing the victim, the martyr about something, sulking and then returned exactly when Kate started tweeting. You're right. She was pestering the living daylights out of Kate about that challenge and Kate didn't answer her.

She really is a piece of work, not to mention a delusional piece of work! It would scare the bejeesus out of me to have something like that obsessed with me. I'd feel sorry for Kate, except that Kate could put an end to it but she doesn't. I guess maybe she really doesn't know what to do with Gladys. Ignore her and she might become dangerous.

Watch for it. It will be inappropriate. She is a clueless, unaware and unauthentic WOS.

Hopefully not for the girls sake.

When a tweeter person has been suspended, is that suspension permanent or can they come back using the same name? If they can't come back with the same name, can they just set up another account under a different name? I've never used Twitter, so I am rather clueless about how this works.
I noticed there are some who were suspended, but have reappeared under a new name.

Jeanne said...

Ok the hair is truly weird. That is obviously Kate's idea of beauty and so she asks for the extensions to be beautiful. You all are better at this than me. Who is she emulating? Farrah Fawcett? Kendra? It's confusing to me. I'm a little older than Kate. By this age, my friends and I have found the hair style that looks best and become comfortable with it. Long or short or whatever. I have no friends that add and remove extensions on a frequent basis like Kate. Forget the money. We like our hair the way it is.

The makeup is spackled on because she appears to have such bad skin. I had absolutely terrible skin as a teenager. Now my skin is normal. Not perfect but not bad. Her diet and booze make her skin awful. Eat a balanced diet, shower normally, don't overdo the booze or other bad habits and you'll look fine for your age. I also wonder if she thinks she knows better than the makeup people too and won't let them stop at normal tv makeup.

Speaking of which, this is a reality show but they are still tv lights. Do the kids all have to get makeup done?

Jeanne said...

I actually wonder what shape Kate is really in. We've seen glimpses but not the whole picture. Her hair line is receding because of the weaves. Does she have any bald spots from hair damage? What does her hair feel like?

Her face has acne as we've seen. Can she see the scars from procedures? Does it feel weird to have a different shape from implants? How uncomfortable are those large veneers? Is her skin rough or smooth? Her neck doesn't even seem to match.

I've never had breast implants. Is it strange to have such large implants on a not that big body? She must have scars from the tummy tuck and implants. Other surgeries? Who knows. I wouldn't be surprised if she had liposuction. I also bet there are other tattoos that we haven't seen. Again, is her skin reasonably healthy? Without proper hydration your skin doesn't feel good and loses elasticity.

Her feet don't ever seem to fit her shoes right. Are her feet painful? Does she have bunions or corns? Constant hooker heels can't be good for your feet.

I'm not sure what I'm saying except that it must be very strange to be Kate, to be alone in your room. Does she even recognize herself? Is this the look she wanted or does she always feel it's just out of reach? They say a woman's life is written on her body. Usually that means the stretch marks from your babies, the surgery you had because of illness, the time you were painting and fell off a ladder, all those things from living life. I can't imagine not even looking like me in the mirror. Esp when it seems that after all this she is still not ready to accept herself.

Nah. It means she's on the high end of her mood swings because she's trending doncha know. She has this special coming up, she's going to be seen on Celebrity Apprentice, seven and a half of her sheep are having orgasmic seizures over her and in all likelihood she and Steve celebrated with an extra bottle of wine or two. Her head is as big as the Goodyear blimp right now.

It's a pattern with her.

I was looking at Kate's TL. You know, a few of the non-fans are really nasty, and not just to Kate, but to the fans. It goes beyond the poking and baiting...the remarks made to others is really over the top. No matter what one thinks of Kate, or how much she is disliked, I actually feel sorry for some of the casual fans who tweet to Kate, only to have cruel insults hurled at them. There's no reason for it. I wonder if they are like that in real life, or only on the internet where they can hide behind anonymity. Kate needs to take down that Twitter. Of course we've been saying that for a long time, but she needs the die-hard sheep because she has nobody else in her court.

Ex Nurse said...

I just watched the clip, and have some other thoughts about Mady's comments. Her body language didn't look rebellious--she may actually have been trying to help The Wicked Witch of the East, by saying--oh, no we don't want fun things in a wink wink manner, not in a belligerent way. Similar to that comment (I can't remember it exactly), that TFW ruined her dramatic pause. Or she may have gone off script, throwing TFW off--this would explain M's comment on trusting her..

Of course, M should know by now that one must never upstage TFW, or the wrath of hell will be visited upon her. Maybe Dr Lillian Glass will weigh in on that, or we will get more context for what happened. Since TFW had the phone in her hand already, she may have confiscated it earlier. In any case, TFW's overreaction was shocking, to say the least. And that world-weary egg cracking scene just says it all. Do these kids ever get a welcoming smile and an encouraging word that doesn't somehow end up being about her? If so, I haven't seen it yet.

Hopefully, this special will be the last time that turd circles the drain before finally being flushed into the sewer, where she belongs. If she thinks she is worn out now, just wait until the tips are teens. Which, hopefully, we will not see.

So not a problem for our Kate - I imagine she has a basement full of autographed crapbooks, or perhaps a grifted Chipotle card or two lying around.

What I find astounding is that based on the clips from the special the six sheep are going to have to believe the woman with the greasy pulled back not so long hair morphs into Little Bo Peep with the long golden ringlets and speckled face for the couch interview. Insane.

Did Kate steal the "Growing Up Gosselin" idea from the Duggar girls?

The book they wrote is called "Growing Up Duggar", which was published in March, but was available for pre-order several months prior. The "Growing Up Gosselin" tag was first used on the Today Show.

Kate may not realize it, but she may have just provided the title for on of the kids future tell-all book.

We've been saying that for a few years, and somehow, some way, she manages to surface and keep it going. I don't expect this to be any different. Although she's not all that bright, intelligence-wise, she's cunning and she will find a way to wrap someone around her finger. She's not done yet.

My dh has no clue that I follow this mess. With TFWs silly putty face plastered all over the news lately, he took one look and said "wtf? When did she get Jay Leno's chin?" He also commented on her crazy eyes. I told him they were courtesy of Botox.

During her Ann Taylor Loft/chicken hair days, I'll give credit where credit is due, she looked very pretty during that time (even with the hair.) She looked younger than her age, her hair was thick and healthy and her skin was lovely. I'll never understand why Kate and so many in Hollywood think that streched, pulled, Muppet-like features and polyester hair are youthful and desirable looking. Cindy Crawford is a good example of good plastic surgery. First, she's up front about getting it. Second, she gets very minor tweaks and preventative procedures. She still looks just like Cindy Crawford. It's a shame Kate and others feel the need to morph into the cookie cutter plastic and frozen blond.

Didn't someone check about the trademark on "Growing up Gosselin?" I thought some random guy already trademarked it.

I went back and re-read Dr. Lillian Glassman's review of Kate and M/C on the Today & View show. Bottom line was Mady knows Kate's buttons to push and Mady pushes them when she wants to.

Mady's learned she can sass and be disrespectful with either no consequence or a consequence she can put up with just fine.

This is everything we predicted for years. Disrespect the kids their whole lives and they will soon dish it right back ten times over. Team Mady.

I wouldn't be surprised if Kate enforces they call her "Mommy," because it makes both the kids and her sound younger. As far as the rest of the tweet, there is usually some truth in every lie and I bet the truth is in what Mady said, but not in Kates response. Puhlease, like Kate would not only let her get away with talking to her like that, but would reprimand and correct herself.

person, but this kind of communication can and does backfire sometimes. Look at Gladys, who firmly believes she is an intimate friend, based on a few kind words tossed her way.

This "little bo-peep" look is just another example of the fact that Kate has no self-awareness. Plastered on make-up and that fake blond wig just look horrible. No self-awareness at all and no one can tell her anything. If I had been publicly fired by a coupon site like Kate was, I would still be in the corner licking my wounds. So embarrassing and it never seemed to faze the woman. Very telling, don't you think? She appears to be oblivious to anything we see as normal and doesn't care what anyone else thinks. That fact alone just adds to the fact that she is unlikeable, plain and simply, unlikeable.

I, too, was impressed by the Angelina Jolie quote regarding her children's future. She truly cares about her children. They do not financially support their mother and never will. Big difference from the Gosselin eight.

Her 60 Minutes interview she did some time ago was fantastic. The kids were off limits. She said you can film the dogs.

Another thing about Vivian is she never set out for Vivian to have a cameo in Mallificent. They had a bunch of other little girls to do it but they were all so scared of Angelina in full makeup they would all cry. Vivian knew her mom and wasn't scared so they said okay fine we'll let her do it. She really is a little darling. This is the difference between a time or two on camera is purely fun for kids versus "WORK." You can't keep claiming playing in front of the cameras after 100 episodes. That works for one or two times.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I actually believed Milo had kids at first but then a lot of little things started adding up that made me think she doesn't really understand kids at all and thus does not have kids.

There are just too many examples to name and I've forgotten most of them. A recent one, she said she took her son's phone away for a month. Thirty whole days? I don't know, that is a hell of a long time for even the most patient of parents to hold out on dealing with an older teen without a phone. If you have to take the phone away a month you may need to take something more than the phone away. I have a hard time buying a catfish describing punishments that actually just make the PARENT's job harder. I'm sure people have but it's just one of many rather unusual things she describes. And the toy truck of course was a huge red flag.

She's always taking pics of the kids from behind, like she's doing so covertly and they don't know (creepy). I think they could just be a niece and nephew or the neighbor kids. That's a common tactic for catfish is just sort of adopt the facts and figures of someone they know. The person exists they just don't play the role you say they do. This is exactly what Nev's catfish did.

This is a good point, Andrea. In parenting 101, all experts recommend handling discipline privately. Kid is acting up in a restaurant, take him out. Acting up at a barbeque, take her inside and speak with her away from other people, etc. The sheeple are trying to spin this like people are attacking Kate for discipining her daughter, they're not. They're speaking up because she purposely embarrassed the child in front of the camera and a soon to be national audience. Then reveled in it with sadistic glee.

If Milo is in fact catfishing, s/he has adopted an extremely odd persona. If she is for real, it's equally scary.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

OH another thing I found very ODD. Milo said her son got his own apartment the summer before college. She was making some joke about how he's so eager to leave her with an empty nest.

We're talking about that final wonderful senior year summer. Moving out would be extremely, extremely unusual. A kid needs the summer to pack for college, tie up loose ends, and have your personal laundry service for just a bit longer, and have them teach or refresh you on doing laundry when you're on your own. There's still a lot of house parties to be had in the backyard and fridges to raid for free.

So many things need to get done that parents help with, from getting a bunch of quarters from the bank to gathering your insurance cards and other documents to of course packing.

Even if a kid WANTs to move out the kid when they go to the leasing office won't want to when they hear how much an apartment really costs.

I found it just bizarre. The only time i've seen that happen is when a kid has abusive parents and they just want to get out ASAP. I don't get the sense that Milo has any gumption to even begin to be abusive with a 18 year old boy.

Others have pointed out Mady's "You never trust me" comment must be related to why Kate had her phone in the first place.

I think the best guess proposed so far was that Kate doesn't trust her not to play on her phone while Kate talks and that's why she took the phone, but who knows. I'm sure if Kate swiped it for no reason when Mady wasn't doing anything wrong, it sure as heck explains why Mady was so irritated.

Not that I can blame the kid that would definitely be a "pull out my phone and play" time.

chefsummer said...

FlimsyFlamsy said...

A big red flag with Gladys for me is that she can devote hours and hours to tweeting. How can someone who's married with 2 kids, and who has health problems, and meetings to go to, just drop everything and grab her smartphone at the drop of a hat?

Also, the full-court press of love for TFW doesn't seem like it's coming
from someone with a balance of real love in her life. It almost feels like a teenager with a crush - something so intense it's all they think about. But crushes usually burn out within months - this has been going on for years.

If he's going to college, that means he has college expenses already, such as the first semester's tuition, housing costs (usually your first year is spent in the dorms, but either way, you need to pay for housing), books, etc. Why would a kid with these big expenses staring him in the face, fritter away three months' worth of rent, when it makes the most sense to remain at home for those three months, rent-free?

No, that did not sound right to me whatsoever. She was probably just tired of having to make up stories about this fictional son, so she shipped him off (in her mind) to his own apartment, then he'll be off at college.

I used to think Milo was an alter ego of Kate, but now I think he or she is someone with a few screws loose, perhaps housebound or otherwise with very limited social contacts, and has become fixated on Kate.

I live in a small house, not a mansion like Kate. But, I have never felt the need to text or call anyone on their cell phone when they were in my home...am I unusual?

No, you are not unusual. But I have texted my son when we were both at home, but more to make a point in a joking way. He'll be watching a video or something on his phone with the headphones on and I (not realizing he's wearing the ear buds), will ask him a question. Usually I just get up and tap him on the shoulder, but I do get tired of having to do that, so I've texted him. While I'm sitting five feet away on the couch. LOL

Exactly, exactly, exactly.

There are obscure obscure exceptions to every rule of course. But these days, in 2014, I'm struggling to think of a single example of all the teens I've known of a graduating senior getting his own apartment BEFORE college. Nope, never happened. Moreover, you'd have to find a place willing to let you lease for an odd period of time, maybe 9 or 10 weeks because colleges start early usually in August. Making your search even more difficult. Kids this age don't want to bother. College is too expensive now and kids these days just live at home beforehand. They are not going to fork over hundreds of dollars for a crappy apartment when they can continue to live off mom and dad and their great food, laundry services and HBO. 'He is eager to flee the coop' is not a credible enough explanation for that. ALL kids are eager to flee the coop at that age but few actually do it or even come close to doing it especially when they realize how expensive it is to flee that coop. I was skeptical then and I am now.

Next Food Network starts tonight and Ross will be on!

I know not everyone likes her but the more she speaks the more I'm convinced this woman really does get it.
********
I think she and Brad Pitt are very committed to each other and truly do put their family first. Late night hosts and comics used to love making jokes about all the kids AJ was adopting, but it surely appears as if the children are loved, well taken care of, and most importantly, they seem happy. They have traveled all over the world, yet their parents have been fairly protective of them. I compare them to Will and Jada Smith's two children, and how they have been raised. I think the Smiths are loving parents, but they seem (from my outside view) to be over-indulgent and in a way, living out their childhood dreams through their kids. I mean, didn't Will Smith basically fund a movie so his kid could be the star, and then the world got to see that Jaden Smith isn't really a good actor? And their daughter, hanging out on beds with 20-year old male friends, she only 13? There is such a difference in the way the Smith kids are over exposed because their parents gave them free rein and think that allowing them to be in the spotlight at their young ages is okay.

I think AJ and Pitt's children have a much greater chance of growing up to be successful and happy in their own right, than the Smith's kids. Both are from high powered, very visible Hollywood couples, but their upbringing is so different.

&&&

They've done something that is relatively simple to do and I think they've given their children a wonderful gift for it. They simply do not tell us who their children are as PEOPLE. They've kept their essence private.

They don't or rarely say anything about their personalities, their likes and dislikes, who they are as people. We can infer that Shiloh is a tomboy and Vivian is the sweetheart and Maddox knows his own mind. But that's only based on photos. We're just guessing. No one is going to have much preconceived notions about them when they get out there. They will be able to be who they really are without pressure.

I happen to think that raising a child of a celebrity is more difficult than usual. I imagine it would be similar for anyone whose parent is a big CEO or other power player. Their children have a huge shadow they are under, and they have all these perceived expectations and pressures. In normal situations, the star in the room is the child. That is the natural order of things, that is how it's been since the beginning of time. We focus things downward toward the children and revolve things around the children in the room. But when someone like Joan Crawford steps into the room or name any celeb, she is the star not the children. That is an abnormal role reversal that I think children find difficult to deal with. It creates intense feelings of not being good enough, ever able to measure up so why bother, and pressure. They then end up acting out in horrific ways as they get older.

In this situation you have to be able to raise a child to find their own voice independent of the baggage you bring to the table. My narcissist clearly didn't have the first clue how to do this, and in fairness, there's not really many parenting books about this particular situation. They just kept on being the star, even at home, and the children kept on being the footnote "children of the star." Now, they're paying the price for not bringing the children outside of the "footnote" pages. But Angelina and Brad have found a way to get around this, have not made their children a footnote, and I'm happy for their children.

Fleecing The Sheeple said...

I just don't believe the many little facts about her life like her children. I think she's in a long term medical care facility somewhere with outdoor privileges. There's nothing wrong with that but don't lie to people.

=========

This would explain why she has never met Kate, although she may have had many opportunities to do so. I just don't buy the health issue. One month she was in a wheelchair (the cruise) and shortly thereafter she was walking three miles. She used the wheelchair as an excuse. You can't tell me that when one is as truly obsessed with a celebrity, and that person is anywhere near your neck of the woods, where Kate has been, that every effort isn't made to meet that person. There's a reason that, after all of these years, Milo hasn't come face to face with her queen, and it could be because she is somewhere in a facility and it
is not logistically feasible for her to travel.

All that is, of course, just conjecture, but there are so many things that just don't add up. Moreover, it's not just a coincidence that when Kate disappears, so does Gladys. I haven't yet figured that one out.

But whatever she or he is, it's clear that the person is over-bearing, annoying and very obnoxious and persistent. I really do hope that she is a catfisher in a facility because I pity any family that has to live with that.

Watching Next Food Network Star and there is a cook on it that has Kate's hairdo. I kid you not. Its the exact same hairdo. The only difference is the cook appears to be in early 20's and the hairdo looks cute on her. Kate has passed her expiration date of being 20 years old with her hairdo. Time to get a hairdo that fits a woman who is almost 40 years old. She's not young anymore, she's moving the midlife.

@beckybgrimwood for seriously??! I'm constantly fixing and repairing myself! It gets lots of use here obviously! Email me your details?:)

Kate was fixing and repairing herself? Obviously, her attempts were futile because she's still the same old Kate!

Then, of course, there are the many times when she begins her tweets with "me" as the subject, or uses "I" as the object of the preposition. She doesn't know the different between lay and lie, set and sit, or when to use who and whom.

No matter. Her sheeple think she's perfect and nobody is ever going to change that!

I really really really hope TLC only purposley shows TFW in a bad light and not the kids. There was no reason for Kate Curic to show them hitting and spitting or for TLC to make them out to be hyper, annoying idiots like the so often did. No more kids not knowing who the current president is, or being bullies to other kids or airing the medical problems of ten year olds.

lukebandit said...

RIP Ann B. Davis. Alice Nelson.

A couple of my favorite scenes with Alice. When she went out on a date from a guy from HS or college and they were at a very expensive restaurant. She was eating vichyssoise and she told her date that she thought vichyssoise was a really fancy name for cold potato soup! Aw, she was so pretty in that scene!

Also, when she was the secret buddy for Jan and she sent her a necklace. Alice finally confessed to Jan that the necklace was from her and Jan said, why? And Alice said, because I am a middle child. And your a middle child, so we are sisters. Very sweet.

From the Associated Press:

More than a decade before scoring as the Brady's loyal Alice, Davis was the razor-tongued secretary on another stalwart TV sitcom, "The Bob Cummings Show," which brought her two Emmys. Over the years, she also appeared on Broadway and in occasional movies.

Davis considered her ordinary look an asset.

"I know at least a couple hundred glamour gals who are starving in this town," she told the Los Angeles Times in 1955, the year the Cummings show began its four-year run. "I'd rather be myself and eating."

She said she told NBC photographers not to retouch their pictures of her, but they ignored her request and "gave me eyebrows."

Wow. Just ordinary looks kept her working for years and fed.

How humble and authentic!

Sleepless In Seattle said...

The sheeple go on and on about how kids should be disciplined. Of course they should. Nobody has ever said otherwise. They just can't get it into their thick heads that you don't do this on television. What is it about the way their brains are wired that no matter what you do, you just can't make them understand this? Their lack of comprehension and logical thinking is not only frustrating, but it's downright scary. What's worse is that many of them are parents.

Kate is a twit said...

Another article I found where Kate's parenting is called out due to the promo video.

http://www.canadianliving.com/moms/blog/hot-headlines/kate-gosselins-parenting-style-genius-or-twisted

"Kate’s parenting style has always been controversial. And for a long time I was a staunch defender of Kate. I mean, she has 8 children, including sextuplets. Can you imagine taking care of six babies at one time. Or six toddlers. What a nightmare. So I always sympathized with Kate and felt that her strict ways were how she coped with having such a large family.

But I find buying your kids electronics for the sole purpose of punishing them to be very twisted. I think you should buy your children things as a reward or because they need them. Many parents buy their teens cell phones for safety purposes. Or maybe as a birthday gift—13 is a big birthday in the life of a kid. But buying something to use as a punishment seems sick. I’ve never heard a parent use that rational, though Kate claims she’s not the only one who does this.

If I was Kate’s kid, I would wonder what my mom’s intentions were every time she bought me something. “Did I really do a good job or is she just playing another mind game with me.”

I don’t think there is anything wrong with confiscating phones and iPads, in fact I think it’s a very effective way of punishing a child. But spending hundreds of dollars just to punish your child seems stupid."

Silly me, you may shout it on twitter but I bet each and every one if you don't have the guts to take it to your community. If you are so sure, do my challenge or STFU and stop making up numbers that match your delusions.

Over And Out said...

I was curious about Milo's catfishing, the ages of her children, if the boy went to college, etc., so i went to Tweet Tunnel and looked back on some of the tweets. She has always called the boy the "oldest" and the girls "the youngest." Does she only claim to have two children? Wouldn't you say the "older" or the "younger" if there were only two? I don't know...maybe it's just the way she refers to them. I couldn't find anything where she mentioned about his going to college. Of course, she deletes so many tweets. She tweeted that she is 14 years older than Kate.

Anyway, I went to one of the last pages and read her tweets from when Kate went to Australia (November 2011). She pestered the crap out of Kate. Good grief...Kate, where are you, Kate, why don't you tweet, Kate, we worry about you, Kate, do you need help packing, Kate, are you on the plane now, Kate, did you take off, Kate, throw us a tweet now and then, Kate, ??????, Kate, where are you. I laughed when I read that she wonders if Kate gets a full body search at the airport.

Yeah, Milo would be interested in that!

What they are doing is straw manning, plain and simple. It's the elementary way out of a situation in which one side is making a valid point.

It's up or down, to them, black or white. This is when having a meaningful debate is so frustrating because they constantly play straw man.

When we say we don't like the way Kate disciplines the children they all for some reason straw man it that we must think the only other alternative to Kate's methods is NO discipline, and so our opinions are immediately dismissed because of course no child should go without no discipline Fresh Prince style.

It's bizarre. Nobody said that. Nobody. Grow up and have a meaningful discussion.

Too funny that Milo brought that up! Milo really shot herself in the foot with that one.

But,but,but....If it weren't shown on television, how would they learn how to parent just like Kate? Especially, her young fans? They keep saying they are going to be a parent just like Kate when they have children. They consider the show to be a parenting manual and they want to emulate Kate in every way.

Jumping In said...

I don't know if TLC ever scrolls through the entertainment websites, but if so, they must be salivating. This is exactly what they wanted; controversy over TFW and her conflict with Mady. Add to that, watch the camera pan to younger kids looking stressed (as shown in the clip), and you have a ratings bonanza!

TLC is about the bottom line, there is no integrity. Sure, they cut TFW loose but if they feel there is still an audience, they'll test the waters with this "update" show. The one thing TLC knows is that they can draw viewership because everyone loves a train wreck. Lost in all the marketing are 8 young lives who are being sold by a mother who cares little about their wants and needs.
