7am is super early to expect teens to be up and enthusiastic on a Saturday. Already this is being set up for conflict.

Funny how KK took from church and now she's giving to a church.

kris said...

Why would she still have 6 car seats for kids that are 10 1/2? She could have gotten rid of them 2 1/2 years ago. Ms. Organization my arse!

Vanessa said...

Clothing, toys, books appliances, car/booster seats, furniture and MORE!
************************************************
What a POS. All those items could have been quietly donated to needy families in her area. IF it's being filmed, well talk about beating a dead horse. Really? can't come up with a new/original storyline? And it went soooo well the first time. Yes, selling things that were GIVEN to them.
A "portion" of the proceeds will be donated? Yup, agree, a can of worms has been opened. She is a snake

Millicent said...

All of the proceeds should be donated - what a cheapskate! Secondly, how old are those car seats/booster seats. I know the advice is to purchase new carseats, to be sure you are getting the most up to date/safest models. Some older carseats may be deemed no longer safe, could have recall notices, or could simply be worn out or have aging brittle plastic parts that could easily break.

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack · 16m16 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 Fr recent tweet it seems the young man had surgery 4 two broken bones N ankle..all of us here surely wish him speedy recovery!!

Gladys reads in this cesspool of hate. Someone posted last night that she should have said she hopes the kid will be okay, and wham, there it is!

If she's giving "portions" to animal rescue and is so concerned about helping homeless animals, then why did she go to a breeder for a registered pedigreed dog (dogs)? Why didn't she support her local shelter and adopt one there?

Ingrid -- the garage sale is being held at the church, not at her home.

We all know that the only reason why KK is doing is to get her ego stroked and to get attention.

The WOS doesn't have a charitable bone in her body.

She's selling car seats and booster seats? Car seats are only good for 5 years plus never buy a used one!

Seems like they can't come up with new story lines...

I would be tempted to go just to see how she interacts but we have a college visit that day

Julie said...

Wouldn't it be a better idea to give the proceeds to Jon? Jon is loved by everyone in that area and I am sure if they knew he would get the money a lot of people would show up.
Instead of selling the furniture she should give it to Jon.

Sherry Baby said...

Oh, no! Uggs tweeted the Daymond Dude that she will be in Miami on Saturday. Perhaps she will postpone her trip so she and her hot friends, and Junior Uggs can show up bearing gifts of flowers, candy corn, gift cards, hugs and kisses!.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

"Hi handsome" lol Brenda's so freaking creepy.

Yes they should have announced this much more in advance and the "portion" is just the biggest misstep ever.

That didn't take long

Sherry Baby said...

____________________
Of course they should. What celebrity gives to charity and then keeps a portion for themselves? If some of these were freebies, courtesy of TLC, and they are there filming, then she's double dipping. Getting money for things she didn't pay for, while being paid to film the sale of the things she got for free. She's got it made in the shade!

If Jon paid for some of these items, shouldn't the portion that's not being given to charity be turned over to him? Will she be selling the gifts that sheeple sent to her and keeping a "portion" of the proceeds?

Or, giving Kate the benefit of the doubt, maybe some is being donated to Animal Rescue, and the rest is going to the church. If so, I would think that she'd be quick to clarify this on Twitter.

An article about the yard sale

http://tinyurl.com/nyy9n3u

But at the end:

And apparently there is more Kate Gosselin drama going on. The mom of eight recently took her kids to Skyzone and tried to help when someone got hurt. While that’s all well and good, she was later accused of wanting to air the footage on an upcoming episode of Kate Plus 8. It’s unknown how much of this is true, but Twitter was alive with comments per usual.

That was my first thought. Donate the items. I have four kids and am not well off, but I always donate their old clothes.

Also, she deserves no credit for giving a portion of the proceeds for charity as she is getting PAID by TLC to do this yard sale. I am sure we will hear that she has been wanting to do this forever. But of course, she will never admit that she would never be able to do this without TLC doing all the work. We will also hear how ALL 8 kids LOVED cleaning out the house and getting ready for the sale. DId you know she has 8 kids??

Seriously though, the so-called new shows are all recycled ideas from old shows, carnival party, sky zone, yard sale. Yawn!

Sherry Baby said...

Sascha ‏@Sassccha 3m3 minutes ago
@TootyTa @mscatie @MiloandJack @Kateplusmy8 @skyzone Exactly. Kate's neighbors openly attest to wishing she'd moving away .. far away!!

They do? When did they do this? Henry, the Amish farmer? I haven't seen any of her neighbors being interviewed or having made statements to the media about this. It might be true, but where is this coming from?

Sherry Baby said...

I was thinking about Gladys. This 11 p.m. curfew is just too strange. I wonder if she really does have a husband and kids, but she lives in a rehab facility and those photos are taken when she goes home to visit. It certainly would explain why those lights (and computer) have to be out at exactly the same time every night. That's when the facility makes sure everything is shut down for the night.

Just one explanation. I could be way off base.

PatK said...

TLC needs to stop filming this repeated boring crap and find something else interesting to have a show about.

I can't imagine being paid for filming another yard sale, and then give... what?...maybe $100.00 to animal rescue and keeping the rest?

I wonder how many of the nutty super fans will be heading to the church to see Kate? I'm sure Uggs will be there.

Over In TFW's County said...

I can understand if she wants to get rid of unwanted clutter. I'd do the same thing. But why drag out the kids and make a spectacle of it? Why not have someone from the church load things up, take it to the sale, with no public fanfare about it? Do it quietly. No Kate and no kids...unless this is all for filming. What doesn't sell, donate to the area clothing and furniture banks. I'm sure they'd be happy to get it.

Admin, how much are you paying someone for a detailed report, complete with photos. No photos, it didn't happen. Better make sure that a back-up camera is taken along, in case Ratclaws decides to delete pictures or confiscate a camera. I'd go, but that would be punishment. Not sure I'm up for that, but I'll think about it. I might have something more interesting planned for Saturday, like sucking up leaves. I don't want to be accused (by the sheeple) of stalking.

Over In TFW's County said...

Don't the sheeple, and Milo in particular, ever wonder why Kate is so disliked/hated and needs so much defending? Do they ever ask themselves that? If she were respected, loved, popular and admired like some other celebrities (think Betty White), she wouldn't need someone jumping to her defense every minute. Kate's perfect, does no wrong, everything said about her are malicious rumors and everyone is just jellus? Is that their answer?

JoyinVirginia said...

TFMJG is boring as usual. My church had yard/bake/craft sale earlier this month. I hope the church is getting a hefty donation for use of their property.
Re Hannah Graham case: our local news is full of info and on top of details. Charlottesville police chief Tim Longo has been aggressive in the search. It was a volunteer police team from Chesterfield County that found remains on Saturday. The police chief asked for volunteers from other jurisdictions to have ” fresh eyes” on the case. And, according to the officer who found the remains, their team had finished searching the assigned area but something made him keep searching and do this area behind an abandoned house. He said ”God wanted me to find that”.
The best thing the police chief did was, when they first began to look for Hannah, to ask all the businesses around the area she was last known to be, to save their security video and let the police look at it. That gave the break in the case.
Jesse Matthew is being indicted today on an unsolved rape in northern Virginia from 2009. He will in all likelihood be charged with Morgan Harrington murder. This is Virginia, our state has a good track record in prosecuting serial murderers and getting the death penalty. The beltway sniper was prosecuted in Virgins instead of DC or Maryland because the police and prosecutors knew they could get a death penalty conviction here.
Its a nightmare for the Harrington and Graham families. Its a nightmare for the Matthew family that had no idea of what their relative was capable of. There is no happy ending. Hopefully there will be justice.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Millicent (#5), re: "aging brittle plastic parts that could easily break,"
were you talking about the car seats, or the woman selling them?
A few years ago TFW said she was "addicted to giving" -- boy,
she sure let a lot of time go between binges. Good for her for
conquering the urge to help others. And who remembers her
pledge to "pay it forward" to other families of multiples?

Starting the sale at 7am means the G household will likely have
to be up by 5am, so TFW can get glamorized for the camera. Just
a normal Saturday for a normal mom, huh?

Sadly, probably not. She tweeted that she will be in Miami that day, hoping to get up close and personal with her handsome Daymond:

Brenda Schuettler @sweetbren66
@TheSharkDaymond hi handsome. I will be in #miami one week from today 10/25 will you ?! I know one of your fav places #VisitingMySis 👍👏😜😊

High Sodium Content said...

It is possible the kids haven't been out of booster seats too long. They are fairly small for their age. PA law is "8-12 Years
Keep your child in a booster seat until he or she is big enough to fit in a seat belt properly. For a seat belt to fit properly the lap belt must
lie snugly across the upper thighs, not the stomach. The shoulder belt should lie snug across the shoulder and chest and not cross the neck or face." Typical Kate - a "portion" will go to charity. Well guess what 1% is a portion, so she can't be called a liar, just selfish. I don't think she's giving anything to the church, just using their yard or facility. And of course it will be on film, wonder if you need to sign a CA to enter. Will Steve be there, preventing pictures. Darn, I'd go just to sneak in a video camera in my purse, running the whole time. She must be getting rid of the junk so TLC can buy her new stuff. How exciting, right up there with another trip to Skyzone. By the way Skyzone broke their own rules, letting Kate play the dodge ball with the kids. I've read that parents pay up to $50 and can't play anything, until there is a game of people their own size, cannot play with your own kids.

Kate is a twit said...

This sheeple wasn't there, so how can she assume that the girl who tweeted about her friend was lying? It's amazing how whenever someone says something negative about Kate, right away they are labeled a "liar". Next thing you know, they'll be calling her a "hater sock".

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

I'll repeat what I said in the last thread. The dodge ball(gaga ball) game was not played at Skyzone. That was filmed at a totally different place called Body Zone.

But it is just another repeat of something that has already been filmed. Kate and the kids doing "sportsy" things just to show how Kate takes her kids to do "fun" things.

They're just repeating what they've filmed before:

•Back to school
•Fun day at sports place
•Yard sale

And of course, there probably will be the twins' birthday and Halloween. Anything that they can film when the kids are off from school.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

PJ's momma said...

What happened to "This is only the beginning of the Gosselin Give-back." This was three and a half years ago. And they went all the way to Tennessee to do it, during the kids' spring break. And Kate got to drive a NASCAR vehicle. But they were 'giving back.' As someone who works at a food bank every single week, I can say that people who come in and do this and want to take pictures for their one-off for the paper or whatever, sometimes get in the way of the mission and other volunteers who are there all the time, doing REAL work for no recognition, because we enjoy doing it. I promise none of us are wearing stilettos. Scroll down for the video.

Isn't there a time frame in the child labor laws that they can't film so early?
Starting at 7am is just not necessary, but, Kate needs to show that she's up before the roosters, cracking eggs and sighing.
Poor thang.

Wait...so, the kids earn the money, which Kate takes and in turn, uses it to support them.
How is that any different than the kids supporting themselves?

My parents worked and supported me. Not the other way around.

PatK said...

Kate would have never had this "yard sale" on her own. Has she had one over the last several years? Nope. Only when TLC is backing it, doing the transportation of the items and setting them up.

Kate probably took control of pricing the items, though... once the kids dragged everything down to the basement or out to the garage (or wherever TLC will load them from).

She's not fooling me.

High Sodium Content said...

The twins are most likely master manipulators of Kate now. You want me to perform on camera, well here's what it will cost you. I'm sure xmas will be huge for them, maybe a nice warm vacation with mama and Steve, what ever else their little hearts demand. Meanwhile, the little kids are brainwashed to think if they don't perform, they will be homeless.

So, Kate having a yard sale, BIG WHOOP! Selling furniture, must mean like some of us predicted, Kate did some redecorating, per TLC. And it is all filmed. The only way Kate would donate any money, and /or have a yard sale, if TLC was paying for it. I laughed at the article, Kate to use money for groceries, new clothes and things for the family home, what happened to the $40,000 an episode TLC is paying her?

WHO IS SHE KIDDING?

Formerly Duped said...

The kids have been shown in the car without carseats for a while.They seem to have grown so maybe they are way past that stage now- I couldn't believe how big little Joel is! Didn't Kate say though that they pass things down to another family or two? And she went on about recycling sports equipments in one of her bogs. Oh well, if the kids get as much stuff as she reports, they probably have plenty to sell. Wonder if she will sell her own hooker heels etc? A good bra? What a shame not to donate all the $ or give to a family in need.

Well, all of you can disagree with me, but I had said a while ago, that I think TLC & Kate are trying to show a changed Kate. Think about it, giving a portion to a animal rescue, trying to help someone who got injured at that sky place, poor hapless Kate, with the water in the basement, etc. TLC is trying to paint a different picture of Dorian Gray Kate. TLC it won't work!

-----------------------------------
And the problem was that TFW WANTED IT FILMED AND SHOWN ON HER SHOW! This in not her child, and she does not have the right to consent to filming him.

As for the "Yard Sale," she is selling stuff she received for free! Why not donate all of the money? Or give it to charity. This is why people can not stand her. There is not one single ounce of gratitude involved. Why couldn't she quietly donate these items from people who donated/gave to her without all the publicity. And why is it a the church? How much did TLC donate to the church so Kate did not have to have it at her own home?

What a selfish publicity whore she is? A portion to the Animal Shelter? How much is a portion?

I am sure TFW would NEVER do this unless TLC was involved. All about what she thinks will make her look good, but in this instance, she does not look good at all. The donated items she received, are now going to bring her more money, plus her TLC salary, so it is a win win for TFW.

Won't be watching; will read recaps. She simply is not capable of thinking of anyone but herself. Otherwise, she would have donated these items to the needy. No words for her.

TLC is trying to change Kate's image so they can make more money pimping the kids out. I will not be watching same old Kate crap boring.

@Aaliyah_Herb @Kateplusmy8 Not true & you know it. Why continue to spread lies? Kate is a nurse and was only trying to help your friend.

Is this the same one who lies about knowing celebrities and having them live in her basement; the one who had a hole in her heart for years, with a blood pressure of 500/300; the one who said that she graduated with a set of identical quintuplets; the one who faked something or other on her late husband's memorial page? I kind of get these sheeple mixed up. If so, wow...calling someone else a liar? That takes nerve, and lots of it!

rainbowsandunicorns said...

If I were to go to the garage sale, I'd buy a pair of her used hooker heels, fill them with potting soil, and use them as a planter for some Devil's Ivy. I wonder if Milo would like to have a pair, or if she'd be happier if I bought some well-worn good bras and shipped them to her.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think TLC might be more conniving than that. I think they KNOW the draw of Kate is her narcissism and everything that stems from that. But to mix it up all the more, they play like Kate has turned over a new leaf. The obvious reaction from everyone but the most gullible sheeple is of course Kate has not turned over a new leaf what a farce! This gets people worked up even more, which is what they are going for. The tried and unoriginal draw of Kate is the controversy. They got nothing else. IMO this whole thing is to stir the pot as much as possible in the hope that a few angry people will land on TLC and watch, nothing more.

By the way Kate never denied that the cameras filmed the injured child. She just backpedaled and said don't worry it won't air. Thus, she just admitted they DID film something. That alone gave credibility to the person complaining that the crew wouldn't leave until yelled at. By responding to that person in that manner, she is admitting the incident happened. By not disputing key facts in it, she gives their story credibility. She made a key mistake in that she didn't try to dispute the facts, rather she tried to dispute her motivations when her motivations really aren't relevant. She is not smart enough to know how to handle a PR crisis on her own.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Admin (#48), TFW is known for not thinking before she speaks, or
tweets. Also, her assertion that the footage won't be shown - how
the heck does she know? It's certainly not her call -- as much as
she wants to claim she has the last word on the final cut. She's
certainly contradicted herself on that one -- one time crying foul
over a bad edit, and another claiming she's a great producer
because she knows the best way to show her family.

Dmasy (#49)), I like your list of prospective shoppers at the yard
sale. I think Brenda would cancel her Miama trip to get a gander
at that group!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

If they're not going to show it why in the world did they film it in the first place? I just can't stand how she acts like who ME? Why would *I* ever do such a thing? Please. She wanted to film it and air it and only when they reacted negatively did she play innocent like OF COURSE we wouldn't air such a thing why would you even think that? Well maybe they thought that because you FILMED IT.

There is such a thing as ethics. If someone is that seriously injured, it's time to stop filming. Especially when this child in question had nothing to do with the Gosselins. Heck I understand filming the poor Duggar boy who fell and could have died. At least he was a "cast member."

She and her sheeple will never get it. They will just never get it.

Exactly. I'm not sure why she is even keeping up the license at this point. She obviously has no intention of ever going back to nursing ever again. What is the point other than bragging rights? I would have a heck of a lot more respect for her too if she were a practicing medical professional and at least making an effort to make some income on her own for this family. She is going to have a huge gap in her resume to explain if she ever tries to go back.

I'm a licensed professional and I'm guessing continuing ed is a lot like how it goes for mine. Most of my continuing ed classes can be done online and the ones you have to do in person nobody grades you or checks that you are paying attention. You need only be a warm body and you get your credit. Continuing ed is what you put into it and if somebody wanted to cruise through, they could. I learn the most about my profession by actually practicing it, and I'm sure that is the same for the medical profession.

Anyone have any idea how long a nurse can go on renewing their license without clinical practice?

Tucker's Mom said...

I can't imagine Kate has taken any Con. Ed. in person, and online, at least for me, you have to pass a test to get the credit.
It's not like you can just not read the hours and hours of material to pass it either.
There's no getting around the work.

The Jeopardy theme is playing while you guess!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

You know what would spice up this yard sale? If TLC slipped
Jon a few thousand bucks to show up! She would absolutely
go to pieces. She'd never admit it, but I think he has quite a
lot of power over her. As her children's father, he is the one
person on the planet she cannot ever completely kick to the
curb. And the fact that she still can't manage to be civil to him
this many years after their divorce -- while he's managed to be in
2 long-term relationships -- seems to show that she still hasn't let
go of him. Of course, I don't mean she's pining over him -- just
flummoxed by the fact that he continues to exist when she's
mentally erased him from her life.

So TFW could rant and rave and scream and yell and sic Stevie
on him, and then TLC could assure her #ItWontBeOnTheShow!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I have no idea but I bet you she could keep this license going forever. I bet they don't care if you practice as long as they collect your fees every year and you do enough to stay competent at least on paper.

I should clarify that there ARE some CE classes I could take that have quite difficult quizzes at the end but that is just one way to get a credit. You could also go to conferences two or three times a year, fill up on bagels and fruit and get all the credits you need without ever being quizzed on a thing. Some CE classes have quizzes some don't and there is absolutely no requirement you take a class that requires a quiz.

What an absolute waste of a license she is.

I can tell you why Kate had TLC film that poor kid. It was to show: Kate caring for a poor hurt child and showing her nursing skills. And give the impression that she is a loving and caring mother to her 8 count them 8 kids and to all children. To prove Hoffman and his book were wrong about Kate. Jon was wrong about her too. Everyone Kate tossed out was wrong about her. That is why it was filmed. Same with the donation to the animals, to show she cares for them, just like the recent pic of the dog and bird, we know Kate does not love animals, it's for this new image & change, her & TLC are tryin to put across. It won't work.

Kylie said...

My daughter has an RN degree but has been home raising her children for years. She has kept her license updated but in order to go back to work she would have to take refresher classes which are no picnic and would take a lot of time at this point. With someone like Kate and all of PA knowing her (and 95% despising her) no way a hospital would hire her.she has way too much baggage and risk for the hospital. As if she EVER intends to go back to nursing! She would have her kids standing on a street corner begging before she ever lifts her lazy ass again.

I still want to know what Kate was expecting to do in this situation as a "nurse". An injury this serious I don't care if you just won the nobel prize in medicine, you don't so much as TOUCH it until a doctor has taken a look at that x-ray. The whole thing is so silly since there was nothing she could do that anyone trained in basic first aid couldn't. In fact it seems to me it might actually be to the child's detriment to have someone so confident in their medical training they start interfering. The best thing to do is keep him still and call 911. The whole martyr for the cause is just silly. Meanwhile real celebrities have stepped up when needed. Harrison Ford once rescued a sick hiker, the Arnold rescued somebody drowning, and Dustin Hoffman saved a woman who goes to my church who was stun by a bee. His wife is also allergic and recognizing the signs he ran to his house to get her epi pen. The lifeguards later said it was a miracle he was there because she could have died before they got there. I don't think the bee thing ever made the news because he wasn't looking to make the news.

.....TLC keeps advertising "90 Day Fiancé" on other channels I watch like Food Network. I think it's the first show in five years I've seen from TLC that looks like it might actually be interesting.

Brilliant! Love it! Best idea so far!!!!

They could show him hauling off the sofa on his shoulders (cuz he has no truck to use). The kids running after him with the cushions.

Or they could show him negotiating with TFW on the price of a toaster or whatever. And her going ballistic while he just grins at the camera.

They could have the Palins show up to buy all the fancy camping equipment (only used once).

Hmm, Milo tweets this on her TL but not on Kate's. Is she waiting for Kate to say something about it first? Since Kate follows her she knows that Kate will see it, so why not tweet it on Kate's TL?

I'm embarrassed to admit that I watch Four Weddings. I have no idea why, other than it's fun to watch the very overweight (and I do mean huge) brides whine and pick at their food, saying that they have nothing to eat. You're the guest there. You shut up and eat it and you don't load up at the dessert bar with the excuse that you didn't like the main course. It's actually quite amusing, especially when they are voting, and say, "I'm giving her wedding only a three because it was too warm and there was no breeze."

Is this the same one who lies about knowing celebrities and having them live in her basement; the one who had a hole in her heart for years, with a blood pressure of 500/300; the one who said that she graduated with a set of identical quintuplets; the one who faked something or other on her late husband's memorial page? I kind of get these sheeple mixed up. If so, wow...calling someone else a liar? That takes nerve, and lots of it!

It's hard to define how PATHETIC Kate is these days. And TLC? How boring with the same plots for the Gosselins. Funny, though, that the days of long distance trips are over, LOL.

I am appalled that the crew would film a child who was injured. Thank goodness the parents are not fame whores like Kate and others. She is despicable. I hope this makes the Internet about her using a terrible accident to focus on herself.

The yard sale? Yep, it occurred to me how awesome it would be if Jon showed up. Now that is something I would watch, but I would want it not planned by TLC.

The yard sale will obviously be filmed because otherwise anyone else with her notoriety would quietly donate or do her usual consignment. I really hate how it's been twisted that the reason for the yard sale is that Kate needs the money. Is this the sympathy card she is going to play? This woman lives in a million dollar country estate, eight children in private school, nanny/housekeeper, millions made through TLC and we are to believe she needs the income from a yard sale or that she will make enough to donate a sizable amount to charity? Really, TLC?

I hope some folks tweet about this so-called yard sale and I'd like someone to reveal about the accident at Skyzone. If I were that kid's mother and my child was withering in pain and some camera crew with a Kate Gosselin was sticking her mug in my kid's face, I would do some yelling too. The nerve.

JoyinVirginia said...

According to website ce.nurse.com, Pennsylvania has a requirement that registered nurses must complete 30 horas of continuing education every two years for license renewal. There are quite a few online continuing education providers for nursing, so someone renewing could do it easily at home.
An aunt was an rn. Once she got married she stayed home with her children and never worked again, but she kept her license current for decades. She was always available to be the person with the first aid and CPR certification for the boy scout and girl scout camping trips, for school activities, things like that. Once you are licensed, if you let the license lapse you have to go back to school apparently. many people even switch careers at some points, but keep the license up. a person can always do a refresher course if they go back to active practice.

I really have to see her whole speech to know if she really, really, really did couch what she did as a 22-year old with a crush.
I vividly remember Monica and the scandal that broke out the moment she and her flip hairdo was plastered front page, top of the fold.
I worked in D.C. at the time, and I'll never forget the paparazzi camped across from the Mayflower, with binoculars that looked like double-barreled bazookas.
It truly was insane.
I hope that Ms. Lewinsky used the words and insight of a 41-year old woman in her speech. I hope she warned the listeners about consequences, and the aftermath of doing colossally stupid things.
Ms. Lewinsky didn't "fall in love with her boss". She perhaps thought it was love, which is a stretch, but in her very immature mind, she might have believed that the President would jeopardize everything for her.
How very "The Notebook", and how very stupid.

I hope she owns that, finally. What I heard was Ms. Lewinsky tell a room full of people that she was bullied.
No, hon, you got down on your knees and serviced the POTUS in the Oval Office, and like a little girl, you blabbed about it to someone you never should have trusted, and then the POTUS lied about it, and then...

It will be interesting to see where Lewinsky is trying to go with this.

The sheeple can bleep about TCFW being a nurse until the cows come home but she would never get a job today without some serious retraining. My older daughter, who is an RN, just found out she's pregnant. Yeah, grandbaby #3! She will take three months off and then go back to work part-time. She'd be the first one to tell you, you can't take an extended amout of time off in this field. She's constantly taking classes to keep up with all the new advances that are happening.

Now, I have to brag for a moment. My 6 1/2 year old grandson scored his first hockey goal on Saturday! He was grining from ear to ear. Too cute.

This has got to stop. It's an insult to children who are really suffering. You are not "bullied" because you chose to screw around with a very public figure in a very immoral way and some of the rest of the public had a problem with your choices and actions and said so.

Plus who even talks about her anymore? Nobody, unless she puts herself out there. It's not credible to suggest her daily life is so terrible if she has not given a real effort to just go back to obscurity. I really hate this.

So any guesses how long Steve has been hanging around? I say he lives there. She's been filming constantly so she must be in heaven. I used to think TLC told her to lay off tweeting but I think she doesn't do it much because Steve is there. Yes sir, she'll need his protection from all the violent yard sale shoppers.

Exactly. The vast majority of people who are the most active on social media dollars to donuts don't even know who she is. As a frame of reference, I BARELY remember this scandal and I was young enough that I was shielded from a lot of it. And I'm not exactly a spring chicken anymore. Nobody in my generation talks about it, ever.

I"m not sure when we became a society of victims, but it feels like it happened overnight.

I do think Lewinsky had the Wrath of Hell rained down upon her by the Clinton administration and people who were trying to protect the Clinton presidency.
What actually happened to Lewinsky was something out of the movies.
She was descended upon by the FBI, held, interrogated, threatened and generally scared out of her mind.
Linda Tripp used Lewinsky, got 15 minutes of fame and a new face (didn't help much).

In this context, I think what happened to Lewinsky is still relevant today.
The government should not be allowed to do this to private citizens.

I don't know if she was turned down at Glad Tidings, and I wouldn't place bets on it, but Hain's isn't her home church and I was wondering why it's being held there. I don't think that this is a church community garage sale, so is TLC renting out the church just for the Gosselins? This reminded me of the cruise, "Come watch the kids play on the beach" or something like that. It just reeks of another instance of putting those kids on display. Have a garage sale. Fine. Just leave the kids of it.

So Kate shrieks. Jaime shrieks. The kids shriek. Zorro shrieks. They shriek, we all shriek. What about Shoka, Steve, the nannies and the fish...do they also shriek?

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

I've wondered the same thing. I'm pretty sure it didn't happen overnight but I think that with the prevalence of social media and the internet we're beginning to see just how far reaching the victimization of our society has become.

Zero tolerance policies in schools, bubble wrapping our children (cause heaven forbid little Suzie scrapes her knee) and participation awards are huge contributing factors.

We've eliminated healthy competition, conflict resolution and natural consequences from our kids' childhood experiences.

For the last 25 years or so we've been teaching our children to always look to a parent or authority figure for answers, to not trust their own instincts or problem solving skills and to avoid personal responsibility with excuses and diagnoses.

I shudder to think what the world will be like in a few years with this trend of treating criticism like bullying...especially when it comes from grown ass people who should know better.

AuntieAnn said...

Patient Zero? Back around the time she was getting herself "patiented", both she and Kathie Lee Gifford were lighting up the internet message boards with some fairly scathing and sometimes hilariously funny verbal abuse so I'd say it was a toss-up who was "first".

But hey, if your only claim to fame is diddling around with the president of the United States then swallow it, so to speak, and own up to your stupid behavior. Don't make a bigger jackass of yourself by saying you were bullied.

Sheri I completely agree. I like the movie Rush about two formula one drivers who were rivals. At the end one says to the other you know what I am so thankful for you and your competition and all the times you beat me because you were my motivator to push myself harder, faster, longer. You made me better.

We need competition, we need to lose and we need to fail. It makes us sharper.

I don't know what exactly the government did or didn't do to Monica at the time but that was two decades ago. Time to move on and stop whining. What I do recall is a heck of a lot of people defending her saying even a president's private life should be private. She should be thankful for that.

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

I realize I'm probably in the minority here, but I'm going to go for it anyway!

I heard Ms. Lewinsky speak this morning on CNN and her message was well thought out, intelligent and very poignant. It's important to remember that she was just 22, enamored of her job at the White House and, well, young. That's not an excuse, but it's worth considering. Of course what happened was wrong and the blame should fall not just on her but on the President (whom I liked then and still do). Daily, we comment here on bullying - how it's wrong and needs to be halted, no matter which side of the Gosselin saga we're on. And yet why is it ok to do the same thing to Ms. Lewinsky? She's being trolled and hounded on Twitter and elsewhere for speaking up against a practice that's killed people - remember Tyler Clementi? A practice that's destroyed lives. Look at some of the non-fans and what the stalkers and bullys have done to them - outing family members, calling jobs, threatening law suits. I think it takes guts to come out publicly and speak about what happened and how it affected her, and she's not shirking blame - she owns what she did.

Of course, this all IMO : )

I have no problem with Monica Lewinsky becoming a spokesperson against bullying. The thing that bothers me is her calling herself "patient zero", as if she was the only one who was ever criticized and vilified in the media, whether in print or online.

Public figures have been vilified and criticized since time immemorial. I don't call that bullying, I call that free speech.

____________________________

Ms. Lewinsky did an interview in Vanity Fare Magazine in May citing the 2010 Tyler Clementi case as the reason she was going public with her cause. I find this completely offensive. Their situations are nothing alike. Tyler had a reasonable expectation of privacy; Monica Lewinsky did not.

Tyler Clementi was a Rutgers University student who found out that his roommate had used a webcam to spy on him in an intimate moment with another man. The roommate streamed the encounter live on the Internet and sent out Twitter messages encouraging others to watch. A few days later, Tyler jumped off the George Washington Bridge to his death.

Lewinsky, young or not, chose to engage in sexual relations with a married man who also happened to be the most high profile person on the planet. She was put through a ringer of investigation and public scrutiny and scorn and threats that is unfathomable, and some could characterize it as bullying, but it was all the result of a risk she chose to take.

For her to compare herself to others who have suffered at the hands of bullies simply because of who they ARE, and not because they willingly and knowingly engaged in shameful behavior, is the epitome of insensitivity. She is a victim only of her own bad choices.

Just for the heck of it, I did a ticket search. First one I did, on StubHub, showed that there are still 410 tickets left for this show. Sounds like she just wants comps, or just has no idea where to search. Maybe her buddies on Twitter should tell her to check Stub Hub. No wonder she likes Kate -- expects things handed to her for the asking.

I don't understand it either, especially since Jamie said she doesn't check twitter every day. Maybe it was just to give Milo something to jump in and comment about, because as she usually does, she was right there making a comment, acting like Kate and Jamie are her BFF's.

I'm only a year older that Monica Lewisnky and had my hands full at the time this all happened so I don't remember too many details about how she was treated during the fallout.

In any case, young or not, 22 is still old enough to know better than to get involved with a married man who also happens to hold the highest political office in the country.

Play with fire, get burned and deal with. Coming back 20 years later and blaming the fire just seems so immature and speaks of the whole victimization of society we are talking about.

Of course, that's just my opinion.

Jane-that's another problem I have with her. Why did she decide to open a twitter account? She complained about being "bullied" on social media, so why join the very media which would subject her to more "bullying"

As we see here daily, Twitter is the ultimate stage for bullies. I give her credit for being brave enough to join and state her case against bullying.

As for Monica Lewinsky, I do not feel sorry for her. She was an adult, and knew the rules, she choose to ignore them. She brought this on herself. She has no one to blame but herself, and Clinton is also not blameless. It takes to to tango(as my mom use to say). Her whining that she was bullied, is pure BS, she probably needs money and can make money by doing the talk rounds. Lots of women do/did things she did, they just did not do it with a president, they managed to move on, Monica, was a famewhore, as much as she claims she hated the publicity, she loved it. Just like Kate does, only difference, Kate admitted it, that any publicity is good publicity, even bad publicity. Long as it gets her name out there. Monica is no damn different.

It's not only the fans who stalk and bully the non-fans. Both sides are guilty. I've read some of the absolutely vile, horrible tweets to the fans, and this certainly is harassment. Neither side has clean hands. These are supposed to be mature adults. It's time they grew up and acted as such.

Well, all of you can disagree with me, but I had said a while ago, that I think TLC & Kate are trying to show a changed Kate. Think about it, giving a portion to a animal rescue, trying to help someone who got injured at that sky place, poor hapless Kate, with the water in the basement, etc. TL
*******
Actually, this concept has been discussed here at various times over the years. One of the long-standing jokes is "Can-Do Kate!" which was one of the incarnations that TLC tried when Jon & Kate were freshly divorced. The idea being that Kate, a newly divorced mom, suddenly had to "do" so much more than before (which we all know as a complete crock). Unfortunately, TLC was forced to privately acknowledge that the more accurate description would be "Can't Do Squat Kate".

And they already tried to depict a more giving, generous side of Kate with other episodes: The hospital visit where they donated books for the kids to read, dragging the kids to another state so they could pack bags at a food bank, etc. It's all simply for show.

All I can hope is that the ratings are dismal. But TLC is apparently not having much luck finding another winner of a show, so they are stuck bringing back former high-rated reality shows: Little People, Big World with the wedding shows; Kate and kids with the birthday show, the "back to school special" to air at Christmas time, and now a yard sale. Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Millicent said...

You know what would spice up this yard sale? If TLC slipped
Jon a few thousand bucks to show up! She would absolutely
go to pieces. She'd never admit it, but I think he has quite a
lot of power over her
******
Oh yes, that would be quite dramatic - I can only imagine that Kate's scowl would be something to see, the moment she caught sight of Jon. However, I think he could not be bothered to purposely interact with her.

I agree that he has power over her - but its power she gives him by being unable to let go of her anger, bitterness and hatred of him.

I'm not sure I understand this. I'm probably misinterpreting it. Are you saying that a public figure who puts his life out there can't be bullied? What is it? Harassment? What is the line between bullying and harassment? Are the two interchangeable?

-----

Which is probably why she did what she did. He was the POTUS, the most powerful leader of the Free World. At the tender age of 22 or whatever she was, how to do you say no to this, especially if you have your own issues of insecurity, lack of self-esteem? What an ego booster! It's kind of like the student who gets involved with an older, married very handsome male teacher. Of course they should know better but they don't. They are seduced by the secrecy of it all, knowing that the seducer is a person of power, so to speak, and the young person is enamored and totally caught up with such a person having selected her (or him) from all of the people there just for the taking. It's when your crush on someone becomes reality and you just can't believe it.

Is it morally right? Of course not, Both she and Clinton were to blame, but while I don't condone it for any reason, I can see that a young person such as Monica would be flattered to have caught his eye. At least she didn't catch anything else.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think lots of 22 year olds would say no to Clinton even those with low self esteem. You just don't do that and I hope and believe most young women know that.

I think bullying requires an element of imbalance and rarely is an adult truly bullied. I think the law allows a great deal of leeway in discussing celebs even very harsh criticism.

If it crosses the line to something criminal, like true criminal threats, law enforcement can and does get involved. Plenty of celebs before monica and kate have dealt with such incidents quickly and quietly without ever whining about bullying.

I tend to agree. At 22, a young woman should know boundaries and have developed a moral compass that would deter her from even coming close to acting upon flirtation and feelings.

What I will give Lewinsky is the fact that this wasn't just about the blue dress and a cigar. Clinton, much her senior on every single level possible, engaged in an ongoing relationship with Lewinsky.
He acted positively smitten, secretly, of course, but smitten, nonetheless.
Her head was probably telling her that this was more than just being the POTUS's piece of ass on the side, and I think Lewinsky believed that Clinton really loved her, and would continue their relationship "to the next level", at some point in the future.

Again, I don't think these facts comport with what she's trying to do now, at age 41.

That gaga ball game was a real eye-opener and I don't get how people couldn't see Kate taking joy in beating her kids (try competing with someone your own age, dear, and then do a victory dance), and her little girls getting physical with their brother.
It was appalling.

If I was their mother, and saw how quick those kids were to becoming pugilistic, I would get professional help.
Between the recent specials, and Katie Couric's visit, I never once saw Kate address the kids' violent tendencies.
Hitting and spitting were completely and utterly ignored.
But heaven forbid on boy tells a girl he doesn't like her hair, then he's called on the carpet and gets a dissertation.

Oops. that's spirit dinner! When you have the entire team and coaches over to dinner ( like a pasta & salad spread or BBQ) and the team 'bonds' over games and songs, talking, and fun. Usually one parent hosts and other parents bring food. But the onus is on the host to provide space, condiments, the main dish, maybe dessert, organize the events planned. So I doubt Kate would volunteer.

I agree. A public figure is open to having his/her actions commented on publicly and loudly. Freedom of Speech, absolutely. But when does it turn to bullying? Because someone is very open and public is it okay to bully them? Where does commenting end and bullying begin?

I don't know the answers but it's a conversation that's ongoing on many websites and blogs and makes for some interesting discussions!

All the kids boo-ed for the activities- was it really Kate who chose them all? None of them looked like they were too enthused. And of course she was the center of the tups' party in her clown get-up.Why can't she stand back and enjoy watching them have fun like most parents and grandparents?

Excellent article! Well thought out and he makes a good case. I think there's value in both sides of this discussion. And it's an important discussion to have…. but I think, after this, I'll get back to Gosselinland :)

Mel Robbins, a legal analyst and CNN commentator also makes some excellent points:

Sexual affairs are happening all over the world at this very moment -- with politicians, world leaders, famous actors and people you know personally. Yes, affairs and other indiscretions are disgusting and immoral, but you can hardly be surprised anymore when you hear about them (looking at you Vance McAllister, John Edwards, Anthony Weiner, Donald Sterling). After all, you don't publicly execute people for these everyday offenses between two consenting adults, and yet that's basically what the world did to Lewinsky.
In 2014, it appears that Lewinsky is finally claiming both her freedom and the new identity she deserves: survivor and crusader.

Yup, another free makeover. I'll be shocked it all of this wasn't for filming.
I wonder what company donated tens of thousands....

And yet, a "portion" of the proceeds are going to charity.

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

If "ALL MUST GO", why doesn't she donate it to places that can use it or donate ALL proceeds to charity? I'm sure she didn't pay the total cost of the remodel/makeover. I'm sure TLC paid, because after all aren't they using it as a filming set?

She really is something else. Basically bragging that they had a remodel/makeover done, and now she wants YOU to help pay for it by buying her stuff.

And in a not so subtle way, she's getting a dig in at Jon. Why doesn't she come right out and say "Jon lost his home, but I got my house remodeled. Ha ha!"

PJ's momma said...

Wowee; she got a free home makeover/remodel, is getting paid to air it, and she can't DONATE all the excess/used stuff to CHARITY? And she is using a church property to dispose of it - a church she doesn't even attend? Hopefully they are being compensated in some way, but if you look at their facebook page, they are very conservative and humble. Not at all the image that she portrays publicly. That is infuriating and sad at the same time.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Jane said...

TLC gave her another home remodel? I have to think they're doing this knowing it will infuriate so many, knowing it will generate a buzz. The woman's a millionaire and she gets her ginormous home redone. If she gets another new kitchen .... Grrrrrrrr. And since the last batch of furniture, toys, etc were free, why aren't they being donated and ALL proceeds given to charity. Disgusting woman!

PatK said...

I don't understand the need to have her home remodeled already. Did TLC pay for/chip in for the cost due to it now being a filming studio? Is she planning on remodeling every five years?

Gimme a frickin' break!

Tucker's Mom said...

Stanley's article makes some good points, especially when he points out Lewinsky's specious timing and cause celebre.
However, I find his (Hilary) Clinton apologist remarks repetitive and overly chivalrous.
She notoriously wears pants more fiercely than most men.
Hilary might have been too Shakespeare-esque in her proclaiming a "vast right-wing conspiracy", but I have no doubt that she wanted shit to rain down so hard on Lewinsky that she'd be sorry she was ever born.

Her hands are about as clean as Lewinsky's dress.

Ha! Jolie - yes, but I'll leave the interpretation um - wide open- for however anyone wants to take it.

I think Monica's campaign against bullying, cyber or otherwise, would be more valid if she'd exclude herself as a victim and admit her fling with Bill Clinton was a huge error in judgement (his as well) and a public lambasting was the result.

Getting slammed on the internet was happening long before her name was in the media. If she'd do her research she'd find out she was not the FIRST victim. IMO using that banner weakens her cause.

I don't really care whether what Monica says is disruptive to Hillary or not or whatever it means for Hillary. Monica can say what she wants without worrying about messing up somebody's election dreams which are all very speculative at the moment anyway (I mean look what happened to Hillary last time when Obama showed up.)

However what Monica said is trite, silly, immature, and really just ridiculous, fame-whorish, and she's being called out on it, rightly so.

I do think however that as a caring person, it would be nice to think about whether what your saying is going to pick at old scabs and bring something terrible up all over again to a family who has moved on. I don't like the Clintons, but I do have to give them credit for making a big effort to try to move on from this and stay united as a couple, and he either isn't having affairs anymore or if he is he's being much more discreet. Fair enough. They have moved on from it and they don't keep bringing it up, and now they have a new grandchild to dote over and other things on the horizon. Life is good, and it is kind of obnoxious, and frankly, rude, to have that other woman who keeps sticking her mug out there making comments and reminding everyone of it. For Chelsea actually especially. None of this was HER fault and I imagine she wants to look forward not backward right now. Monica is a nuisance in 2014.

In RH's first book, according to her journal entry from the second garage sale they made a profit of $760. Kate said she gave God his 10% for giving her some spare cash to spend.

I have nothing against tithing, it's a personal choice, but I did chuckle at what she wrote and wondered what he was going to do with all that cash. It just made me laugh after all the free stuff she'd been given and taken, she gave God seventy-six bucks. Does it relieve her conscience?

It will be very interesting to see how TLC and Kate spin this.
Every episode is carefully narrated to address every single anticipated criticism of Kate.
Just look at the last 2 specials and count how many issues Kate addressed:
Animal lover- check
Shoka alive and well- check
Kate actually has cooking skills (despite all evidence to the contrary)- check
Kate engaged with her kids- check
Kate has friends and "family"- check

They will have sufficient time and recon to tailor how this yard sale and renovation will play out in favor of Kate.

At least, they'll try, and it will be as obvious as the nose on your face.

I was reading some of the comments on sites blogging about this garage sale. I laughed at the one that said that she or he wouldn't buy anything that belonged to Kate because evil entities are thought to cling to some of the objects to which they were attached.

There is a DV shelter here that takes just about anything and everything, from clothes to kitchen stuff to furniture to toys. You can unload all your stuff there and write off the value. It is highly unlikely you would ever get anything close to the real value by trying to sell it to neighbors. You make out better by taking the write off.

She's too dumb though to realize she's picking the worst possible way to get the best bang for her buck. She has never been innovative or think outside the box. She's the type of person so simple minded that she never thinks to do something as obvious as to combine her errands all into one trip.

Kate has the power of TLC to help her donate everything she possibly can.
She could have shown the process of donation and highlighted a particular charity or two.

It's practically suicidal to have Kate sell her ill-gotten gains for pennies on the dollar, then pocket most of it.
Not that she paid any dollars for much of it, but that's the point here.

It's well known that she has a long history of getting her belongings for free- big, big freebies that she never deserved to begin with.

I think this story line is a really bad idea.

Tweeter asked a question about the garage sale...

@Kateplusmy8 can I take pictures or video

Sure. Kate's put them on display. Why not do a video of the 8-ring circus?

I don't know why this upsets me so much, but it does. These people are more interested in seeing Kate and being part of a media event than to actually make purchases to support a charity, no matter if only "portions" of it are going to animal rescue.

Once again, Kate didn't think before she pulled this little publicity stunt. I hope they call in extra security because old Rattie is going to have his hands full.

Milo, there you go. Your big chance. Two hours to Philly, non-stop. What's your excuse this time?

rainbowsandunicorns, please email Admin for my email, tell her I said it was ok to give mine.

Tucker's Mom said...

Does anyone else find it weird or strange that Kate's announcing this yard sale?
Kate notoriously tries to film under the radar, and when people do realize she's filming with the kids, she freaks out.
Remember the RV trip?
She peeled out of her skin every time people were in a position to snap photos and post them to social media. It would "give away" what they were filming for the show.


redbirdsings said...

Sounds like the radio station is going to do a live broadcast.

Wow! I wish Jon would show up, he has every right. His children will be there, so why not? Boy, wouldn't that be something if TLC paid Jon a big check to show up and then we could see her squirm. Remember when they broke up they were at the end of the driveway and how awkward it was.

YARDSALE! Join us this Sat 7-2 at
St John's Hains Church
591 N Church Rd
Wernersville
ALL MUST GO sale following r home remodel/makeover!

So TFW is selling items she got for free and replacing them with more items she got for free. Oh and donating a portion of the proceeds. What a truly charitable person! (sarcasm)

Tucker's Mom said...

I can just see Steve losing his mind, trying to shut down all of the photo snapping and video taking this Sat.!

I think it's going to be a gawk-fest.

I'm betting some sort of warning is going to be given about not taking photos or recordings.
The church lot is private, so I think maybe they can enforce a "no image-taking" policy while people are on the property.

Despite Monica Lewinsky peeping her head out of the gopher hole every so often, she's really quite an enigma to me.

Well, even she has to come up for air every once in awhile.

I wonder how long it will take for Monica to surpass Kate's # of Tweetees!

The radio station sounds like they are seriously reconsidering doing this broadcast after all.

The comments are scathing, and they are from locals, from people owning their first and last name and going on record, and they make good points. There is no reasonable defense of this one. She has eight kids or it's for charity (just a portion, mind you!) is beside the point, as she can do all this without exploiting her kids or flaunting her VIP lifestyle while the commoners get her hand-me-downs. Kind of reminds me of when Mrs. Olsen oh so graciously offered to donate Nellie's old shoes to Laura. Ma said thanks but no thanks.

********
And that right there is the optics that I can't fathom mitigating.

This looks so, so bad.

The very same community that everyone knows gave and gave and gave to Jon and Kate, with their time, money and donations is now being asked to buy the things that Kate no longer needs... because she's got more stuff (free) than most people can even imagine.

It's like a big FU to the locals. She and TLC know it and are playing on it. I hope it backfires. For once I hope it all falls flat on her face. Not that it would bother her. She's sitting on millions and that's what gives her the audacity to do it..

Anonymous where did you get the idea we weren't expressing our opinions on the Monica issue? I always assume any kind of discussion here is just someone's opinion. I don't require people to bog down their entire posts with "IMO" every other sentence. It's assumed, and quite frankly, obvious, it's your opinion. That said the negative reaction to Monica has been outright overwhelming, but of course that incredibly large group of people reacting negatively is just an opinion. I guess she must have some of her own sheeple somewhere out there, if you search every corner for them, who feel differently, like any celeb does.
