Kate blasted by the hosts of 'The Talk': 'They didn't get a chance to choose it.'

Sharon Osbourne, Marie Osmond, Sara Gilbert and other industry experts discussed Kate on today's show. Said Gilbert: "Any time you're putting kids on T.V.--I was a kid on T.V. and I wanted to be there--but if you're putting eight kids on T.V. from the time they are tiny you don't know which ones want to be there and which ones don't. ... I chose it. They didn't get a chance to choose it."

Osbourne also explained that people in the business, like Gilbert's legendary family, have a much better understanding of how the industry works than ill-prepared and naive reality T.V. families from middle America: "It's our industry. We know what we're going to get, you know what you're not going to get. So therefore, it's a whole different thing."

I'm still not going to watch it, but in no way was it painful to watch this episode. I enjoyed it.

The things they say about the various stories are things myself and my girlfriends would say. The things they say are thought provoking. They seem to sincerely care. I have never felt like that when I've watched the View.

Kate is a twit said...

Bringing my comment over from the last thread:

I read an article about the Talk where the head of CBS daytime programming described the premise of the show.

"As a viewer, you are invited to join us at the table," said Angelica McDaniel, head of daytime programing at CBS. "You feel like you're meeting your girlfriends for lunch or going out together."

Like I said previously, I hadn't watched The Talk much before today, but after watching today's episode, I'd say Ms. McDaniel described it perfectly.

It was so different than the View and so much better. Nobody was shouting over each other like they do on the View. They definitely respected each other's right to speak and to have an opinion.

Did you notice how a couple of times when one of them jumped in excitedly, she would right afterward apologize to the woman she interrupted?

It was like a REAL conversation where a polite woman would say to someone oh sorry excuse me for cutting you off.

These are civilized, classy woman. This is what an all-woman talk show could really be. And their views are educated, insightful, and just have common sense. There was no sense of celebrity kiss up here. What does someone like Sharon care about that? She's a huge celebrity herself. The View is pathetic compared to this.

Kate is a twit said...

Admin-I'm glad you posted the link to the show. Just a reminder, the segment on Kate starts at 16:00(at the 2nd marker). However, I would suggest that people watch the whole show. I found it quite interesting.

Fleecing The Sheeple said...

LOL Actually I should take my own advice,I always use to tell my kids " always read what you write " when I use to help them with their homework. I'll try to do better next time, I promise!

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

lol, Tomatoes. It's "I USED to help them..."

Use (without the d) is correct when followed by "didn't," or "did," as in "Didn't you use to be a Kate fan?" :)

I wonder who sat down and figured out the rules of grammar. Did he/she just throw it all out there to see what would stick, or did that person have one too many kegs of rumspringa?

@Kateplusmy8: Another busy summer day...pool time, lacrosse picnic and summer (required) reading projects...let summer never end! #We'reHavingSoMuchFun
========
Deflect, deflect, deflect, she's right on schedule with her "we're all so special we shit Skittles" tweet. Pay no attention to the ladies on The Talk because the Gosselins are having a super fun summer. I do wonder if they ever read for fun because TFW pointed out that the reading they're doing is required reading.

Barb In Nebraska said...

What is. Kate doing Tweeting about the kids Summer reading project and letting us know that it is (required)? Looking at what is required, it's really not asking too much, 3 books for the younger kids, 2 books for the twins. Is getting her kids to read like pulling teeth? That's the impression I got from her tweet. Now waiting to see if she will tweet a photo of the kids reading. Let me know if she does!

Everyone ought to rewatch the video that was posted on Administrator's post of Tuesday, August 3, 2010 called "Daddy don't go..." It is heartbreaking. I don't know how to provide a link, maybe someone can.

After today's "The Talk" skewering of Khate, I think the Karma train is coming full speed ahead. Chugga chugga chugga chugga, chugga chugga chugga chugga, CHOO CHOO!!

Take that Khate. Was it all worth it? In her twisted brain, it probably was.

I haven't watched that show since the time when Sherri made the remark about blowing up Jon's car. I can't stand that woman. I don't know how really pathetic it had become.

I agree, and I rarely say that about this kind of stuff.

If you are interested it is not a waste of time to watch the whole show or at least the "talk" part of it.

Ian Ziering is going to be on tomorrow, probably to talk about Sharknado2. I think I'll watch just to see if they mention anything about CA. They probably won't, because no one is supposed to know that he was one of the participants, but I'll check it out anyway.

Remember a couple years ago Donny and I think Marie as well did an interview where they basically trashed their childhood? They said it was completely dysfunctional, they were never home or saw their mother, and mentioned terrible things like having to work when Donny had appendicitis.

I bet the fans don't care for that interview either. Nobody likes a happy child star who grows up and reveals their childhood was actually horrific.
&&&&&&&&&&&&

I remember reading an interview with Marie a long time ago, it really struck me. When she was in her late teens and doing the Donny and Marie Show, the network suits began badgering her about her weight. No matter how much weight she lost, they were never satisfied. She struggled with eating disorders for a long time. At the same time, she was completely exhausted from the non stop schedule and just wanted a break from time to time. Her father and network executives always said no, and then shamed her for even asking because so many employees were dependent on she and Donny to keep the show running. For that matter, Ricky Nelson was told the same thing when he wanted to move on from Ozzie & Harriet. Too bad son, 46 men and their families depend on this show for their livelihood, you're not going anywhere.

So to hear that Kate has allegedly threatened the kids with poverty unless they film always made me sad. It's too much responsibility to heap on a kid.

lukebandit said...

Wow! The Talk boiled, broiled, baked, skewered and grilled kate. When Julie first asked if she exploited her kids, huge outburst. Then Marie said loudly, Tell us how you REALLY feel! Oh my gosh! That was baaaad. Sharon kept on and I was going wow! Just wish they would of mentioned the book.

If I were ate, I would have a near complete embarrassing want to crawl under a rock deal. She has to be seething over this. This was bad. It is a shame that she tweeted that her kids have summer reading (required). Makes me think that they have to relax and read instead of Working like mules. That she has to pay extra for the help to do the kids chores while they do the (required) reading.

Never reading to them during the summer when they go to bed. She could easily do the her and the girls and her and the boys and just go and talk to the twins. She could do all of that in 30 minutes. 10 minutes. Start with a book where she could read for 10 minutes then lights out then the girls.

It is a shame that she has to say that it is (required) reading. This is something that she could do on her own and let them be kids and read. I would say they have a much much better chance that Jon reads to them than kate.

It's #fun,fun,fun at the Gosselin's this summer!!!!!!! Read: fun with mom, no fun at dad's.

Did you notice in the sleeping "maybe he's dead" Zorro picture that she has Hannah snuggled next to her?

Why in the heck would she post a picture of recovering those chairs? Whoop de do. I did all my dining room chair seats years ago. For someone who is big on keeping a clean house, those chair cushions were filthy. I can only imagine what all the grifted, free upholstery in the family room looks like now, LOL. Thing about it is, since shoes not allowed in the house and she and the kids are usually barefoot, all the floor dirt from those hardwood floors are transferred to cushions. Remember how black the bottoms of her feet were in those couch interviews??? LOL. And this is the woman who made the film crew wear hospital booties over their shoes!

Again with the "endless summer" vibe from TFW. If the kids are
in school 10 months out of the year, shouldn't she try to make the
best of that time, too?

Doing required summer reading for school wouldn't have to be a
chore if she encouraged them to read all year long for pleasure.
Or if they saw her curled up in bed or poolside reading on a
regular basis. What a wonderful hobby for kids to stimulate
their imaginations, and expose them to different ideas, and
give them insight into different emotions. Heck, sometimes
just to make them laugh out loud - a great way to let off steam
in their stressed little lives. And with a library card, this is all
free - perfect for a piecing and patching mom who has to sell
clothes to put feed her children's mouths.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

For any Bugs Bunny fans out there, a chant came into my head
when I saw there was a new Radar article on TFW:
"Dogpile on the rabbit! Dogpile on the rabbit!"

Seems to me it's "live by the sword, die by the sword" in this
tabloid world. If you're collecting a check one week for selling
a story, you can't clutch your pearls and yell, "Well, I never!"
when you're on the losing end of a story the next week.

But but but, Marie does not speak for these children!! whines our resident troll on a weekly basis on her way to the trash bin.

Question, if no one can speak for children, why would our treatment of children as a society ever improve? It's because people have spoken for children that child labor laws and other protections ever even got started.

Wake up. Look at their body language. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know something was off there. Thank you, Marie, for stating the obvious.

But their mother does-(ugh) and it seems when the kids can't speak or use their word as their mother said she speaks for them.

She is is worst self appointed mouthpiece a person can have.

It's also scary since she can barely string a coherent sentence together when out sound like a ditzy teenager.

OrangeCrusher 1 said...

So how much honest vitriol will Kare expose her children to before she accepts that her nasty demeanor has made her quest for a media career virtually impossible? I would crawl under a rock after yesterday's honest yet brutal conversation on The Talk. Her children are old enough to read tabloids, and I do not believe they are shut out of wifi with the number of devices she has in that house. All of this talk about mom has to be on the radar for the teens. Not that she will, but for their sake she really needs to go away, get off Twitter, take the rest of the summer off. She has one 13 year old sassing her in front of cameras, another nervously picking at her clothes, what does she not see that the rest of the world does? Yes, of course, the narcissist lives in her own world, but this is really getting harsh for the kids. And she goes on farting chair recovers, sleeping birds and all sorts of nonsense. It is was past time to give it a break already.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I was thinking about the common excuse the Kate apologists are putting forward lately that she has to feed the children somehow.

This is yet another response that is sort of an admission. In essence they are admitting well yeah you have a point BUT it's justified because she has to feed them.

Shouldn't their answer be, there's nothing harmful about this at all? Not, BUT she has to feed them, thus admitting it's bad but justified? lol.

How far do you take the "she has to feed them somehow" philosophy? At what point is behavior not okay even if it's the only way to feed the children? Where is the line drawn? They don't say.

And how does one update special in TWO YEARS feed the children? What about the other 23 months? If it only takes one update to feed the children in two years they should be good for another two years right?

All questions never answered.

That's why I am totally FOR more discussion, more opening of closed doors, more EXPOSURE. If nobody talks about what has happened (each and every time an abuse is committed) how do you stop it from changing, form happening again. Every single time we hear a victim come forth for whatever reason (rape, assault, child abuse etc) they say they want to heal but also prevent this from happening again. Like Chef said, those kids have the WORST mouthpiece speaking for them. She does not stop. Well time for someone ELSE to speak for those kids. Someone who is genuinely looking out for their well being. If it's the media, FINALLY, then so be it.Their situation is unique, they have an industry backing their abuser! It HAS to exposed, people have to question, dig further.

JoyinVirginia said...

A few more thoughts, about the View. I have always liked Julie Chen, ever since she was on CBS News shows and their morning show. She even embraced her critics who thought her hosting of Big Brother was robotic. She has said she IS the Chen Bot! Its fun when the pro is in on the joke and embraces it. I have been a Big Brother fan since the beginning, and the online fan sites were BRUTAL in their critiques of Julie in the early days. She took it and worked with it, and now fans can't imagine anyone else doing the job.
About summer reading for kids, every summer local library in my area had summer reading program with special free programs with story tellers, animal programs, etc and contests where kids could record the books they read and get special prizes, a gift coupon for ice cream, a cute pencil, an official reading program certificate, things like that. Good time for kids to get out of the house, get together with friends and make new friends, have fun. And all FREE at your local library! I have an e reader but still like to feel a real book in my hands.

And yes, her speaking in code. What "safety issues" were you so concerned about that your only recourse was to sue? Sue the father of your children? Maybe Jon should sue you for so carelessly throwing pertinent info in the trash? Robert said he hasn't even scratched the surface. Maybe there's top secret information about HER children that she just dumped nilly willy in the trash? It's because of HER hoffman got a hold of the stuff. It's because of HER that information was made into a book. Sue her ass Jon!! lol

JMO said...

So many great posts... so little time :)

First of all- on The Talk, several women spoke up about the children being forced to film. Sharon Osbourne clearly did not demand that her one daughter who did not want to film be on the show. Liked the "barfing" as well. Like them or not, both she and Ozzie have/had talent that brought them in the spotlight.
Sara Gilbert clearly WANTED to film as a child and noted her desire to do so, rather than assuming all 8 want to film, according to TFW.
Marie Osmond- Mother of many kids did not approve of Kate's "blanket" -THEY ALL WANT TO FILM rhetoric.

Recent articles about Mady NOT wanting to go to Alaska, the TFW's complete meltdown, as she had to share the spotlight with SP,the spying antics when kids wanted to call Jon with the nanny present, show how insane these kids lives have become. Her way or the highway. No way all 8 wanted to film- Mady pretty much made it clear she was not okay with the party, Cara barely if ever spoke, boys barely said a word. So I guess Kate + 3 girl tups thought filming was a grand idea.

The kids are old enough now that each and every one should be able to let the Family Court Judge know if they want to film.

Personally, don't care what TFW does herself (always about herself anyway) but leave the kids alone once and for all and get a career or job without involving your kids. That is what GREAT parents actually do. 10 years now!

I am most concerned about the boys. Robots - no good will come of this!

That's another thing I like. They look real. Most of them aren't out of this world pretty or enhanced. I've always loved the Gilbert family and every word out of Sara Gilbert's mouth was genuine. She looks like she could be your neighbor. Alison Arngrim had some great stories about sleepovers at the Gilberts. They were really rich and had nannies and housekeepers doing everything for the kids. It was funny because in real life Alison was the poorer one and the Gilberts were rich, lol. And yet Melissa always wanted to go over to Alison's place because Alison's family were hippie nomad types and lived in a hotel room.

If you're interested in a great celeb instagram to follow check out Melissa Gilbert's. She recently moved to Michigan after a lifetime in Hollywood and she posts lots of interesting stuff from her new country mediocre life.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Also how does a CIVIL lawsuit help with "safety"? Does she think people are that dumb. When it comes to her sheeple I guess she would be right.

A civil lawsuit is almost always just about money. How does draining someone of every last cent help your "safety"? Wouldn't that actually just antagonize the person and make them desperate, thus actually making your level of safety WORSE?

If she has a safety issue, she is welcome to go down to family law court and ask for monitored visitation, a restraining order, or a no contact order. That is where you address "safety." It was such malarky and her dumb sheeple fell for it.

&&&

Yes and there are many key differences. Like Sharon said they had been around the business for a lifetime and knew exactly what they were signing up for. A random middle America family does not. They were already very financially secure, lived in a mansion, and did not depend on the show for food. And their kids were much, much older, almost adults, and were in a much better position to know what they were getting into. Plus, they ended the show after a reasonable time. Four season I think. It had its run, now time to let it go. They didn't try to drag it out and really destroy their lives for decades.

I think it is called the "Beautification/GotaGoodBra" budget.

Kids need to diet quite a bit apparently with TFW's ongoing "budgets."

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

IF they're so hungry why did Kate, according to Kate, "relieve" Jon of child support?

Well that's sure dumb for someone starving. He works. HIs wages could be garnished and given right back to her for grocery money.

You'll make your kids work before you ask their father to support them? That's pretty pathetic.

Vanessa said...

And just look how she went after Jon for not continuing to film? Look how she set out to destroy him. THAT was the fire under her butt, the hate that consumed (still consumes) her. Does everyone actually think? THINK? that those kids are not FORCED to perform?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I'm pleasantly surprised Mady being forced to go to Alaska has struck a chord with journalists. Quite frankly that seems like a minor incident compared to everything else that has happened in this mess, but so be it. I guess people really didn't like the idea of a child dragged somewhere she didn't want to go. Why that bothers them and not the mountains of other things that happened I'm not sure.

And great catch about the kids crying and screaming for Jon shortly after they got home from that very same trip. I'll always remember "following" that trip live via random sightings and tweets and how it was apparent the children were without Kate for three or four days at a time. That must have been so sad and lonely. I'm not sure we ever found out where she went.

It doesn't. All about TFW's desire to lash out and try to stop the book. But you knew this, of course.

Sounds like the TFW "budget" is and always has been" about TFW's needs. Lawsuits, beautification, etc.. without a thought of giving her kids the half a sandwich (at 10 yrs old) or second helpings that they probably need at this juncture.

Her whole idea of salads and "not getting fat" is probably being passed on to her kids. These are growing children, they need to eat to grow - oy vey!! Sick.

I get what you are saying, but in the bigger picture, it clearly exemplifies that ALL KIDS do not want to film, while TFW has clearly said over and over and over again that they all agreed to filming. Lies.

The most recent filming, likewise, visually demonstrated the same. TFW's claims are clearly not truthful.

The half a sandwich thing continues to bother me. I have grandsons who are 5,4,3. When hungry, a normal thing for them after a morning of play, they can each eat most of a whole sandwich, 2 halves, either PB&J, or grilled cheese, sometimes a cheese quesedIlla, with two tortillas. The portion over control at the Kompound is frightening.

Yes. Though I'm not sure all kids don't want to film. I think it's clear some of them don't like it. Not sure about all. Perhaps they just see it as representative of the fact that Kate does what is best for Kate and cannot be trusted to honor and respect the wishes or her children. In fact will even lie about those wishes and exploit the children even when their body language suggests that they are mortified and terribly uncomfortable. It really is sort of representative of the big picture. I've always felt it was irrelevant whether the kids loved or hated filming, however. The point is it's not good for them, not at this level, not at this amount, not for this long. It does not matter if they love it or hate it, it's got to stop for their SAFETY, if we wanna talk about safety, TFW. However, it certainly makes a more compelling argument if they have been forced to do something they did not want to do.

I think TFW switched perimeters to meet her own needs. She always said, once anyone wants to stop filming, we are done. Jon wanted to stop, and poof, he was not only gone from the show, but from her life.

The kids are getting older and wiser. They know what she said, and Kate is not honoring her own words. There were only 3 kids (IMO) that were actually on board with recent filming, based on the footage.

The others - not so much. Not sure if she used bribery, guilt, or punishment, but if you view the most recent shows, most of the kids did not exhibit happiness at all. Actually the opposite. And I don't think TLC missed this nuance either.

As of right now, Robert has sold 1645 books, with 1073 sold this month alone.

From Mar. 2013 through Feb. 2014, Kate sold 1641 copies on Amazon. So Robert has sold more on Amazon in 25 days than Kate did in 337 days!!

As of today, he has only sold 315 less copies than Kate has sold total (1960) on Amazon since Mar. 2013.

Not exactly "fizzling"!

sparkle said...

“Kate’s not going to take any legal action at this time,” a source close to the reality TV star told Radar.
“She feels the book is already ‘out there’ and thinks that ‘even though a lot of things are fabricated and untrue,’ she doesn’t feel the need to drudge up old news and waste unnecessary money on attorney fees that could go to feeding her children’s mouths.”

&&&&&&&&&&&&

I still can't wrap my head around this. First of all, according to the sheep this book was never coming out again. They insisted that Kate made Robert and Jon cry 'uncle' in a super secret deal.

Oh, but it did indeed get re-released. It is selling steadily and has sold (or almost sold) more e editions than Kate's crookbook total, but Milo calls that "fizzling." Lol. The statement from the spokessheep is most confounding. They are claiming that this book is "fabricated and untrue" but she's not going to waste unnecessary money on lawyer fees." Any innocent individual would not consider defending their name and character a waste of lawyer fees. They would consider the vindication of these allegations money well spent. This was a bad excuse and bad choice of words. Again, no libeled person calls defending their good name a waste of money. The sheeple who came up with that steaming pile only made Kate look worse and even more guilty.

Kate has to feed the kids so that why she's not suing.

But she sued the first time so did they kids not need to eat during the first lawsuit?

Kate sued for the kids safely during the first lawsuit.

But she won't sue a second time so do the kids safety not matter now?
*******
What has changed now such that the children are safe and their futures secure?
I'd love to know, because Kate was adamant that she HAD to sue Jon and Robert in order to affect this.

Eh, never mind, there is no sane, logical answer.
Kate's timing was impecable, as usual.
She timed her divorce filing and inflammatory statement about Jon when 10 million sets of eyeballs were watching.
Kudos on that one.
Brilliant.
Next, Kate timed a baseless, hapless and vicious lawsuit against the father of her children just as her cook book was to be released.
Fantastic way to tease television shows in order to ensure they get Kate on their couches.
Interestingly, once the book was out and failing miserably, she didn't need to protect her bebbies.
No?
Not so much?

chefsummer said...

Does everyone actually think? THINK? that those kids are not FORCED to perform?

The sheep are blind and brainless followers that believe everything Kate tells or tweets them.

I bet if she said yes filming is very harmful the sheep will turn around an agree with her.

JTN said...

I have been thinking about Sara Gilbert's comment about wanting to be there and act, and I think it probably highlights a fundamental difference between her life and the kids lives. Her sister was on one of the biggest shows in America. According to Alison Arngrim's book, one of the reasons Little House worked was because Michael Landon treated the children like actors. She said that children are often treated like movable props, and he dealt and interacted with them like professionals. She and the other child actors thrived in the atmosphere of respect set by their boss. Sara Gilbert undoubtedly was impacted by seeing her brother and sister (her brother played Willie Nelson) work as actors in an environment where they mattered and were taken seriously. If they had horrible acting experiences, she may not have followed them into the profession, but that was not the case. That said, however, the Gilbert family didn't need their children to act and were apparently wealthy enough on their own to not use them as a support base.
The 8 children are largely used as props in manufactured situations to play out some contrived scenario. None of them can choose another path. They are the backbone of income in that family and are treated as cash generators. I have read alot about child actors over the year and in almost every. single. situation where the children support the parents, it doesn't end well. You can look back to Mary Astor's parents (they sued her for support and pretty much stripped her clean), Jackie Coogan's parents, and go from there to modern day. The Gosselin situation will not end well.

Granny in Nebraska (#69), great that your granddaughter is such an
avid reader! What a wonderful hobby.

There's a coupon blog I read which is written by a mother of 3. The
first post I saw this morning - right after I'd commented about the
lack of reading in the G family's lives - was this: "12 Books I Plan
To Read in July, and 3 Books I Plan To Read Aloud To The Kids."
And this is a woman who runs a marvelous blog, and travels a lot
to conferences and book-signings (she has an actual best seller),
and still manages to make time to read not only for herself, but
with her children.

It seems like the G kids don't have a lot of intellectual stimulation
at home. I sense a lot of electronic "babysitting" going on. TFW
has busted herself time and again on that one.

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

Who knows- guessing TLC may have paid TFW to keep her mouth shut. Every word out of her mouth was, "Can we sue??" Always about getting money not earned.

Likewise, raising an issue that has never been discussed, but is it possible that TLC agreed to pay for tuition for the 8 back in the hay days? Never minding paying for her "new set" at the McMansion?

I am talking back in the day, back to days of her high ratings? Reason I mention this is because TFW is always concerned about every penny she spends on her kids (Boys wearing shirts for 2 years down the road, chickens on property for tax break, consignment shops for clothing she received for free, many freebies, etc...

Don't know what to make of her greed, but I do think the tuition issue was addressed with TLC at the height of her fame. Pure conjecture, but she complains about the most minor of bills, but never any mention of the school tuition. Odd. And remember, she had everyone who gave her furniture, etc.. pay for the taxes so she did not have to put out a penny for any perks.

I am a glutton for punishment, I fully admit it. Attempting to find logic where there is none is futile, I know, I know, I know.

That said, here goes. For us mediocres, it isn't anyone's business what we choose to do with our children's hand me downs. Consign, Goodwill, give to relatives, we all have a preference.

A few months before Kate was photographed taking clothes she likely received for free to a consignment shop, the big push for the show was "Gosselins give back." Never mind that the Gosselins had to fly to Tennesee to give back, but hey, they were giving back. Kate publicly gushed that she was addicted to giving back and that from here on out she was going to be more charitable so her kids would know the joy of giving to those in need. She even flew back to Tenn. ON HER OWN DIME (she made sure we all knew this) to continue her addiction of giving back.

A few months later, her addiction must have been cured, because she's photographed taking her kids clothing to a consignment shop. Kate doesn't get it both ways, Milo. She doesn't get to do a mini publicity tour gushing about her newfound charitable ways, inviting the public to know about what a giver she is, then slink off to a consignment shop to shill clothes she got for free to squeeze a couple bucks out of them. If Kate is going to make these public declarations, she deserves to be called out publicly when they turn out to lies and stunts.

Marie Osmond is not a regular, on the Talk. I guess you can call her a free lance co-host. Marie still does the shows in Vegas and flys to LA to do the Talk. I think she should do the talk show, period, but perhaps she likes doing live performances,(good exercise, she can move) as to being a regular on a Talk show. I like her on the Talk. Marie comes from a family of 9 kids, and she had 8 kids. (some were adopted). Marie at one time had all her kids perform on stage with her(she had them do summer stock with her, years ago, she did Sound of music, one summer) I don't know how many are still performing, but she let them try it. Marie knows a lot about the music world, acting world, and stage. From what Donny said in an interview how he was pushed into the family business, how he would get stage fright, a lot, and as he got older it got worse. Both Donny & Marie and all there brothers would have like to had a normal childhood. Donny said later in interviews, how he enjoyed watching his sons play football in high school, and hearing all the fun his kids got to do, and he missed. He never encouraged any of his kids to go into the business. Unlike Kate, the G8 had no choice.

I'll always remember "following" that trip live via random sightings and tweets and how it was apparent the children were without Kate for three or four days at a time. That must have been so sad and lonely. I'm not sure we ever found out where she went.
***************
Purest speculation on my part, but I think that Kate became very un-nerved by her experience in Alaska. She was thrown up against Sarah Palin, which clearly made her very uncomfortable. I'm not a Palin fan, but Palin was chipper, enthusiastic, and tried to be a good host to Kate and the children. Kate's interactions with others only work (in her mind) when she has the upper hand, when she has control.

Tossed into a situation where she is expected to treat Palin as an equal, she clearly hated it.

The capper was being ignored while everyone went ahead and had fun without her. She was miserable!!! and no one dropped everything and tried to placate her (except perhaps for that money grubber, Steve).

We saw her basically lose it on camera and take flight from the campground. I think perhaps she really did have a sort of mental breakdown, and maybe she was off somewhere for a few days, self-medicating with booze. It was probably the first time in years where Kate was very publicly ignored, and she couldn't get anyone fired because of it. She came face to face with a situation where her presence was irrelevant and it probably freaked her out.

I think she is headed for some serious breaks from reality as the years pass and those kids get the hell away from her. She will have no one and nothing. She will be older and look older. She will have a hissy fit in a store and be asked to leave, rather than be catered to. She may foolishly drive under the influence and get arrested and her mug shot splashed all over ROL. No, it won't end well for Kate, and the saddest thing is she'll never understand that she was the cause of her own downfall.

I think most people appreciate that the Gosselins are not actors, but I don't know if the public "gets" that the show was highly orchestrated, and that the kids were not running in and out of frame all the time.
The schedule was rigorous, and while what you saw in an episode looked organic, it really wasn't.
The family had to meet deadlines, travel, be on mark, do activity, wait, do another activity.

One of the best first-hand accounts of this was Polly Kahl's observation of the corn maze filming.
To listen to Kate narrate (on the basement throne), you'd think that they were there all day long, and did the whole maze.
In reality, the came, they filmed, they left.
In 20 minutes.
Kate was completely unengaged with the children, other than yelling "don't step on the corn!!!!!!!", and the crew interacted with the kids to get action scenes; chasing and calling them.
Oh, Kate and her stiletto boots trampled all over the corn on the way to the BBB when they left.

So many great posts... so little time :)

First of all- on The Talk, several women spoke up about the children being forced to film. Sharon Osbourne clearly did not demand that her one daughter who did not want to film be on the show. Liked the "barfing" as well. Like them or not, both she and Ozzie have/had talent that brought them in the spotlight.
******************************
That's right - they had an older daughter who opted out of being part of their reality show, and her wishes were strictly honored. Also, Sharon and Ozzie are characters, but crazily enough, demonstrate what it means to be in a committed long-term marriage. What with Ozzie's drug use in younger days, wild times, etc. - yet they stuck it out and seem as deeply in love as ever. No wonder Sharon scoffs at Kate, who chased off a good husband and father, and has had an inappropriate relationship with her married money-grubbing "body guard" for years!

"Marie Osmond- Mother of many kids did not approve of Kate's "blanket" -THEY ALL WANT TO FILM rhetoric."
************************
I believe that the Osmonds' father did push them into the limelight, and I am not sure whether all of them would have chosen that path. However, they did have a very strong family and seem to have mostly positive things to say about being young singing sensations. However, Marie seems to have raised her own children very much out of the spotlight. I wouldn't recognize one of her children if I passed them in the street. Marie Osmond has worked hard all her life - she knows a phony when she sees one.

It's much better if you keep tweeting platitudes or your lust for Kate rather than denouncing this book and ROL as trash. It's not working for you.

sparkle said...

Here's another example of how Kate does make her business everyone else's business because of the way she shoots her mouth off. When Jon and Kate were relentlessly begging for their van and equipment, etc. they would always throw in that when they were done with the equipment they would pay it forward and donate it to other families with multiples. They publicly made the statement and that declaration. I'm sure with that in mind, some companies felt more inclined to help the Gosselins. Unfortunately, when the time came, instead of seeking out other familes of multiples to give the equipment to like they promised, they listed it for sale on their website and sold it. Shady.

Had they never said a word about what they intended to do with the donations they received, it would be a non-issue and truly nobody's business. But they made it people's business by publicly claiming they would do one thing, then reneging on that promise and doing the opposite. In fairness, they did sell the last of the equipment on the show at their yard sale and donated the proceeds to charity. It wasn't the initial promise to donate to other families of multiples, but at least the money went to a worthy cause.

In short Milo, Kate is a public figure and makes sure via her twatter and other outlets, that we know all about her business. When she's caught lying, it is only because she publicly told the lie in the first place.

Other than pursuing doctors (who wisely avoid her like the CLAP), pursuing a dentist's son, who provided financial support, collecting funds and having bills paid by locals, and listing a web site that requested donated items- including a 15 passenger van, sending videos to networks before the kids were even born, what has she ever done that would contribute to the finances, other than filming her kids?

I know she wrote 4 books, first written by Beth, 2nd and 3rd popular due to ratings';4th- cookbook-disaster. Failed show (with Kate alone), CC - fired, DWTS - disaster- you pick on Tony, you pick on him, you deal with me: );ARC photos, CWS- Way too smug to a mother of 1; treated Ashley and Jamie like crap on RV trip, Father of children left after being told filming would continue, when he clearly said, he wanted it to stop, Beth gone, Nanny Janet gone, family "does not know how to help her."

Sorry, but somewhere along the line, you have to realize the problem is you. And your demands were too much, even for TLC! Take note.

Tucker's Mom...yes, I realize that most reality shows are 'scripted', but my meaning about the kids depicting themselves is just that...they might be 'acting' out a scripted episode, but they are in fact acting as themselves.

here's another thought, and ya'll tell me what you think.
Ate copyrighted her journal. Robert paraphrased Ate's abusive parenting skills. (for the record, I have both editions of Robert's book. I do not plan on reading the second one. I simply purchased the second to support Robert)
So what happens if a PA mandated reporter reads Robert's book? Is it enough to open an investigation, although a complaint wasn't registered through an agency?
(I don't know if I could be a PA child welfare employee that could read this book and not feel some sort of responsibility to protect the kids).

It's frightening really. the thing is she KNOWS she is an abuser, she confessed to it in her own journal. But she has never seeked help.

NO DEAD EYES. She was abused as a child and was repeating the cycle. She genuinely wanted help. With POS, she will never be reached. She will never want help, therapy, do the hard HARD work that's required to change her life. What I don't get is she KNOWS what her childhood did to her, made her feel...why WHY? does she not want better for her kids. She can justify it til the cows come home. Would she want her abuser(s) to blame it on THEIR abuser (s)? I can't stand to hear my mother bemoan about what a rotten childhood she had, how she was treated and then turn around and do the exact same thing.

I agree with your take on Alaska, with the additional thought that Kate was uncomfortable with, and perhaps angered by, being in a somewhat patriarchal environment, where 3 generations of a cohesive family interacted in cohesion, without tension or acrimony.
Jealous? Perhaps.
Uncomfortable? Definitely.
Angry. I'm pretty sure.

Are you ladies talking about lunch sandwiches or the breakfast ones in the special? The breakfast ones are filled with egg, cheese, bacon and the bread she bakes is larger than average store-bought bread. Hey, I'm defending Kate??? But the lunch ones we've seen look very small, not enough, although she does fill up the packed lunch with various other things like fruit, veg, dairy, 'crunchy', dessert. As for the stale uneaten repacked sandwiches, NO!

I can't believe that anyone would think it's OK to SELL things that were given for free, especially by someone who has been given and has so much. Someone should ask these fans this question. If you sent Kate a gift and she didn't use or like it (and it didn't end up in the trash), would you be OK with her selling it? Not quietly regifting it, but selling it for cash, and very little at that, pennies on the dollar that YOU spent?

OT- Help! Had the outside of the house painted, so we (all humans & all pets), went away for 5 days. Unfortunately, I found a dead and decomposing mouse in my washing machine when I came back. Aaaccckkkk! So gross! I got rid of the carcass and wiped out the washer, and then ran it with lots of bleach, detergent, and hot water several times, then ran it w/ vinegar twice, but now it just smells like bleach scented dead mouse. Does anyone have any ideas? I should note that it is a up and down washer and dryer that fits inside a single closet, and not a side by side one. It is also on the main floor and not in a basement, so I have no idea now it got in there, and I haven't seen any signs of mice anywhere else. I am so grossed out by this that I cannot even tell you! For the life of me, I can't imagine why it would make it's way to the washer either, since I store extra bags of dog and cat food in a different closet on the same floor. So I guess I have 3 questions: 1. How to get rid of dead mouse smell and clean the washer completely. 2. How to know how it got it in, so it doesn't get it again. 3. Once clean, how to find the courage to use the washer again. I am totally skeeved out at the idea of it. Ugh! ICK!!!!!

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

You may now return to your regularly scheduled (and hopefully mouse free) program.

Good point, but these are sheeple. In their eyes, Kate is perfect. She does no wrong. They'd argue that if she needs the money to feed her children or pay bills, then it would be fine with them. She knows what is best for the kids, and they'd have no problem with whatever she chose to do.

That's how they think. It's the cult-like thing.

Lesson #1 when you receive gifts from fans...

If you don't like what you got, donate it to charity. There are MANY folks with children, who are truly in need. Having your "body guard" dump gifts/donations in to a dumpster(except for gift cards).... laughing about it...not cool.

I'm sorry for you! That happened to me once in my first apartment, a few times, behind the wall. All I could do unfortunately was try to close off the area, and wait till decomposition was complete- 2 weeks. Masking the smell with air freshener and what you have already done is all you can do, as far as I know. But remember, if there was one mouse, there may well be more...maybe call a pest control company. Could it have got in through the vent or other opening and traveled to the washer area- they can fit in very tiny spots. Look for holes or droppings.. Good luck! I understand how gross this is and so horrific an odor.

T - I use the stuff that Tide makes specifically to clean your washing machine. It cleans all the gunk out and leaves a vey pleasant smell. Other than that you could try filling the tub and adding vinegar with baking soda. Maybe the effervescent action will help.

Bitchy Pants said...

T-104 -- EEWW! ICK!! I'm skeeved out right along with you, just from reading your post. I can't imagine a nastier surprise to come home to. As for getting rid of the odor -- Try running it through with a whole box of baking soda. Then run it through again with baking soda and vinegar. That MIGHT help. You might also ask your vet if he/she knows of a way to get rid of the smell. Call a local cleaning company like ServPro and they might have some suggestions, too. Companies that do flood/fire/crime scene clean-up know all about removing nasty odors. No. 2 and No. 3 on your list -- ya got me. My prayers are with you because you'll need them. Yuck!

And great catch about the kids crying and screaming for Jon shortly after they got home from that very same trip. I'll always remember "following" that trip live via random sightings and tweets and how it was apparent the children were without Kate for three or four days at a time. That must have been so sad and lonely. I'm not sure we ever found out where she went.

44444444444444444

At the time, I ASSuMEd that Steve checked her into a luxury hotel while she had a temper tantrum for a few days, while he fielded irate calls from Discovery. I also thought at the time that we were witnessing the beginning of the end.

I'm not feeling well today but I just want to voice my concern for the G8. Kate must be getting angrier by the moment and I hope she's not taking out her anger out on those kids.

I hope Jon is keeping a close eye on the kids.

There's also Chlorox washing machine cleaner. I've had good luck with that, although I never had a bleached mouse in my washer, so I don't know if it would work on that.

Dmasy said...

T, be careful with a whole box of baking soda. You don't want to make a paste that will clog your drain. Sam's Club sells a product called OdoBan (that's close) in gallons. It does work, but it has it's own cloying smell.

Good luck.

When Kate decided to broadcast her family and demanded that the public PAY HER to observe her mothering, she made it everyone's business.

Also, I have a question for Milo: If Hoffman is riding a gravy train, implying he is getting paid for the handful of negative articles about Kate, wouldnt that mean that Kate likewise was paid for the billions of glowing articles about her for the past 8 years? If Robert is getting rich, didnt Kate get a billion times richer off of rag articles? Where is all that money, Milo?

Blowing In The Wind said...

Has Milo commented on Kate's travel rider? How about the Kobe beef and her planned menu for each day at the Essex? I guess every normal mom makes extravagant requests like this for her children. In fact, do sheep even know what Kobe beef is?

JoyinVirginia said...

T, this gets out cat urine odor whenever Kitty had an accident on the bathmat or towel. I washed the item in HOT water with Borax added to the detergent (usually use Tide) . I suggest run the washer with your usual detergent and one cup borax. Run the water and add the borax and detergent then let it go thru the cycle. After that you could maybe put an open small box of baking soda just in the room, or inside the washer without running it, to absorb the smell like in the fridge. Hope this helps!

It seems that Milo's rage is proportionate to Robert's book sales. The more he sells, the more vocal she gets.

Kate should really advise Milo to just shut up. I don't think she handling her PR job very well. Maybe Kate should tell her "You're fired!!"

Over the years, I have also donated tons of clothing, as well as furniture and other items, to the Salvation Army and Goodwill.

She wasn't have fun in Alaska so no one has fun she acted like a child and told her kids that they weren't Gosselin if they didn't get on the plane with her.

Thanks to everyone for all of your dead mouse cleaning tips. I am running it now w/both baking soda (not an entire box) and vinegar. I'll let you know how I make out. The only problem is that my machine is only a year old, so I cannot adjust the water level. To be energy efficient, it is adjusted automatically based on the weight of the items. So I am going to try to stop it mid cycle and add some boiling water. Can't hurt it right? Then maybe I will alternate cycles a few more times between bleach and the baking soda/vinegar combo....sigh....this stinks! Get it? Stinks??? Ha ha...maybe the fumes are getting to me!

The cat is off the hook this time, (since both he and the dog were away with me), but I will admit that he is missing that "killer instinct". He is an indoor cat, and when a live bat flew into the house a few years ago all he did was hide under the bed. Scaredy-cat indeed! I must of spoiled this one, since the cat I had as a kid could of taken down a gazelle!

T, I agree with the poster who said if you have one mouse, you have more. Most likely, it came through a water pipe and landed in there. Mice often come inside to get water, not necessarily food. That's why it's dicey to use poison, because if they eat it and drink water and hemoragge (sp?) to death, it may be in the walls since the water is inside!
Maybe you should was a rug in there to get the water level up. I've done that with an outside mat, so it didn't matter if it was a little smelly. It aired out on its own.

He was extremely interesting and giving the kids a wonderful lesson about Alaska's wilderness. Until their shrew of a mother had an adult tantrum and demanded they leave THIS MINUTE!

Well now I have to since you told us not to.

A couple of years ago I had a horrible odor exuding from the trash bin in the alley after someone tossed a dead bird into it. I was actually afraid to open the lid for fear there would be something bigger and maybe illegally placed in there (I watch too many crime shows). It reeked so bad the neighbor even commented on it. lol.

After garbage collection I filled it half full of water and poured about three cups of 20 Mule Team Borax into it, stirred it around with a mop and let it stew in the hot sun for a day before I dumped it. It removed most of the dead body smell.

We went through this in our house and it took several weeks to relocate the mice. And I agree with an up thread poster...if there's one mouse, they've got friends.

On the one of last or THE last episode that Jon was in which was the tups outdoor birthday party with the bouncy tent, Kate ordered everyone to sit down for the 'traditional' family photo. She yelled at JON to take his sunglasses off and then told everyone to smile and just like that everyone flashed their happy happy fun fun smiley face for the camera. And as soon as the photo was snapped almost all of them went back to their frowny faces. That's how well she has (had) them trained.

I agree. If as Milo tries to claim that Mady "was worried about not getting her shoes & feet wet not filming" than why is Mady standing so far from Kate and the others? There is plenty of room to move AWAY from any water if that was the problem.

And seriously, wouldn't it make sense that if Mady was really worried about it that she would be huddled up close to Kate for comfort? Instead Mady looks to be actually pulling away from Kate as if she is miserable and angry with Kate and does NOT want to be standing near her at that moment.

The logic of Kate's fans defies common sense.

I'm way too 'country' to ever even THINK of trapping a mouse and setting it free. After dealing w/the horrific smell of a dead mouse between the walls, I called the local 'feed store' for advice. The man said that the only thing he would ever recommend was Havoc, that it would kill the rodent and they would NOT smell. I bought it when I spied a female mouse, but couldn't trap her. I never saw another mouse, so I know that they were killed and did not smell. However, I have no small children or pets, so that might make a difference to you.

Wouldn't a normal mother in both situation go to their child and see if they're all right?
-------------------------------------------------------------------
YES and YES! Not only would I be comforting my child in any crisis, hurt, worry that they are having but they too would be coming and clinging to me for comfort.

Clearly, in that picture Mady does not view her mother as a safe comforting place to go to while she stands there crying and in visible distress.

No matter how the fans want to twist the story behind what is happening during the photo shoot, the picture does not show Mady turning to her mother for comfort. Quite the opposite, Mady is turning AWAY from Kate!

@MY_2BCOLLIES: @MiloandJack @Kateplusmy8 In Alaska photo Mady was closest to the creek & she was worried about not getting her shoes & feet wet not filming

Why would she be worried about NOT getting her shoes & feet wet? Shouldn't she be worried about getting them wet?

Be careful on rat poisons....just had a neighbor's cat poisoned. It was horrible...was found dying on front of my house, I am still upset.

When I want to get the smell out of our garbage can I dump in a bunch of charcoal (the regular kind not the match light). It does a good job in absorbing the smells and seems to work quickly.

RIP Elaine Stritch.
She was a real broad.

She was indeed Tucker's Mom. She's now with the ladies who lunch that have gone before her and saved her a place at the table. I saw her in Company and she was a show stopper. I'lllllllllllllll drink to that!

T, I heard that Ozium spray eliminates the odour of dead bodies so you might want to try that. It works great in general, but I've yet to have cadavers laying around my house. Available at Walgreen's and most hardware stores.

=========

I have to ask this. Did you google "dead body smell," or was this just a piece of trivia you picked up somewhere? lol!

I heard it from guys who work in smelly places. They said they'd heard it was used in crime scene clean up although I never saw them use it on CSI.

Oh, my, Gosh! I just saw a commercial for a new series with DARYL HALL! He is going to be renovating old houses. I love the name it is cute: Over Hall. I was going to name my youngest ds Daryl, because I have a crush on Daryl Hall. But, I named him after my great aunt's love that her dad ran off. My great grandfather. This was over 80 years ago.

NJGal -- I was privileged to see Elaine Stritch in "Company" too. She KILLED "Ladies Who Lunch". What a great broad she was, in the best sense of the words. RIP, Ms. Stritch and thanks for the indelible memories.

T-- Don't worry about the baking soda. It will NOT make a paste and gum up your washing machine. It dissolves in the water just like soap powder does. NilOdor is very good on animal odors and comes in liquid form. You might try that, too. You can buy it at most pet stores. I've used it on whole male smell and it takes care of it.

So it would work even better on half male smells?

Sleepless In Seattle said...

This Colllie person. Has she been around long? Is she really as dumb as her tweets indicate, or is she just pretending to be stupid so she fits in with the rest of the flock?

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

Is it just me, or do her tweets get more stupid as time goes by? I just find it difficult to believe that some of them are able to function on their own.

Anonymous said...

The Border Collie person is just one of many of her socks. Isn't she the one with the giant whole in her heart that was able to tweet from ICU years ago. She has several aliases, including names such as living and/or loving. She is crazy, just like the detective.

Okay I went to the hardware store and here's the deal. According to them, since I do have both a dog and a cat, they only reccomend a "live" trap, but no poisons. However, that will bring with it an entirely different set of problems, including keeping my pets away from both the trap and the live mouse. They also offered a trap that is basically a big pad of sticky goo. The mouse is attracted to the smell, then get stucks to the glue in the trap. Unfortunately, it has the same problem with pets. Basically, since I do not want any humans or pets to come in contact with any mice (dead or alive), I am just going to call an exterminator tomorrow and let them deal with it.

The hardware store is still a "mom & pop" operation and the helpful folks there suggested that the mouse got in because of the house painting. Apparently the power washing that is done before the painting really disrupts them and often sends any field mice that live outside to seek refuge inside. Then when they put plastic sheeting on the parts of the house that they are not spraying with paint, they get trapped in places that they shouldn't be. Does that sound right to anyone, or are the nice folks at the hardware store just trying to make me feel better? Ugh. I guess we'll just have to see what the exterminator has to say.

The baking soda, vinegar, and bleach trifecta does seem to be working on the washer. A friend came by and said that they didn't smell a thing, but I will be running it a few more times and then use the Tide washing maching cleaner as the final cycle. However, I am still skeeved out by the idea of putting actual clothing in the washer, so I guess I am still a wuss. It's funny because professionally, I can take care of the worst smelly wounds, blood & gore, gross bloodily fluids, and surgeries without batting an eyelash, but once it goes from alive to dead, I lose my nerve...Ack! If you have a gaping chest wound and your bleeding from the head, then I am totally your girl, but send me one dead mouse, and I totally lose my sh$t!

Gladys is an idiot, says some of the most stupid things, loves Kate with a passion, but this tweet is just a read head banger:

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack 5h
The Gosselin8 belong 2 @Kateplusmy8. She's sole provider/full custody! Haters..they ARE NOT YOUR KIDS! U have NO say in how she raises them!

The children DO NOT belong to Kate. They are not possessions. Milo actually tweeted this, but I wonder if she believes it. Are her children (if she has them) her possessions?

Gibran expressed it eloquently:

"Your children are not your children;

They are the sons and daughters life
longing for itself

They come through you but not from you,
Though they are with you they're not possessions

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts

You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls live in the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit, even in your dreams

You may strive to to be like them,
But seek not to make them like you
For life goes backward and lingers not with yesterday

You are the bows from which your children,
As living arrows are cast forth

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the Infinite,
And God Himself fills you with His Might that His
Arrows may go swift and far"

A good read, especially the section that says children are not possessions or projects on display.

I'm glad I don't have Twitter because I'm afraid I'd really go off on her. She's the most annoying person over there. If she's a catfish, she's an obnoxious specimen.

@radar_online @Kateplusmy8 @GosselinBook How much are you paying Hoffman to post this trash? He must be desperate for cash.

Right, nutso. They are paying him $500 per story when they can go to Amazon and get the book for less than ten dollars. Makes total sense to me.

Rhymes with Witch said...

This Colllie person. Has she been around long? 169

She's been around for quite some time and has changed her name a bunch of times. I can't remember all of them, but she's had a hope in her heart, ins. problems, kidneys working at 50%, known all sorts of important people, been there, done that (whatever that may be). She's just one amazing ph without the d. Her sister has the d. Or vice versa. Hard to keep up.
