The rise and epic fall of Honey Boo Boo

For as disorganized as Kate's house truly is despite her claims to the contrary, maybe he TRIED to find his video games and whatnot when he moved and couldn't.

Things have a way of turning up years later when you live in craziness.

Regardless why he didn't have his video game in his possession, whether it was because he wanted to leave it for his kids, couldn't find it, or abandoned it, the mature thing for Kate to do would have been to tell him ahead of time "hey, at about 5-6 am Saturday we're laying out all the stuff we found in the house for sale. You're welcome to come by early before anybody else does and make sure we didn't rummage up anything that you still want. Feel free to take it or if you want to sell it, leave it and we'll sell it for you."

But then, that's maturity.

Bringing this over from the previous thread....because I think it's important to note.

The Alana I saw on “The Tonight Show” set was visibly troubled: disrespectful, defiant, entitled. Of course, with a bit of editing, “disrespectful” becomes “precocious,” “defiant” becomes “sassy,” and “entitled” becomes “confident.”

Disrespectful, defiant, entitled. Visibly troubled.
And there you have an apt description of some of the Gosselin children.

PJ, I wish this was a tipping point, but viewers have long complained about TLC programming to no avail. As long as millions tune in whether out of curiosity or the train wreck factor, the network will churn out the most disgusting shows on TV. I do believe the child molestation charges scared off advertisers and so TLC cancelled Honey Boo Boo. This network cares only about advertising dollars. Unfortunately, it took Mama June being outed by TMZ for TLC to do something they probably did not want to do: cancel a popular show.

I am convinced the rumors regarding Kate wanting to fill the HBB void are 100% accurate. All she'll need is a couple of million viewers in December and she's golden. For whatever reason, she is still viable with someone at TLC. Maybe it's because she goes along with everything that they want for ratings (i.e., the breakdown of her marriage to Jon). Could it be we will see the airing of Steve's marriage dissolve because of his affair with Kate? There has got to be some hook being pitched by Kate to TLC to have the network airing her again. I have no idea what is up her sleeve, but she will do ANYTHING to relive those glory days. TLC does not do boring.
-------------------------------
TLC Stinks- I totally agree. Kate's life plan is to continue filming her kids through whatever means necessary to keep her mug out there. No one is banging on her door anymore; every time she does something solo - it goes south- ie DWTS, CA, Twist of Kate, etc....

Because she is the complete definition of a narcissist, she will do whatever is necessary to keep filming with the kids, as she always tries to make the show all about HER. On shows with the kids, she always makes it all about her. Lying on ground- tired; giving advice to Kendra; making herself the center of attention in a child's game; faking charity when TLC calls for it (yard sale) when she has been giving things donated/given to her to consignment shops for years for $$. Her initial statement about "giving" a PORTION of the proceeds from the yard sale to the Animal Shelter and then ALL proceeds to AS changed after TLC advised her she should do this so she appeared to be very generous.

TFW can't ever seem to make a good choice without TLC and I mean that both ways- she will go along with their antics to stay of TV but her first choice is always me, me, me. There is NO WAY all 8 kids still want to film (When anyone no longer wants to film; we will stop) to the show MUST go on.

This is one very disturbed narcissistic woman who will always put her own wishes first, and the varied reactions from the kids says it all. These are not happy looking kids; they have become robots to meet TFW's needs in order to get their needs met. It is simply a matter of survival. In the photo of Kate grabbing A's arm, it is clear that this is not A's first round in this type of situation. These kids are simply adapting to the narcissist's behavior and making choices that make their lives easier. And I totally understand this.

Not sure where this will end, but it is clearly not going to be good. Why both C children of all people do not see Jon is very disturbing at best. Regardless, I am totally disgusted with TFW and will not be watching the December episodes. I do say things about Jon, as it is so frustrating to see this continue, and some of his choices have been selfish as well. Just wishing the best for G8, but it has gotten worse for them over the past 10 years, and don't have much faith that things will change, as TFW holds all the power with having the $$$. Complete train wreck. Never was all about the kids, but rather fame, money and her selfish needs met first. So frustrating and disturbing.

Never one to miss an opportunity, Kate Gosselin has already contacted TLC to let them know that her, plus eight, are ready to start filming tomorrow if they need to replace the Honey Boo Boo show.


Hmmm. A rational person might call that groveling.

Yes, agree, and she also doesn't think that what happened to HBB could happen to her. She's incapable of thinking things through and realizing that she is just as tenuous as HBB was. She is the SAME as HBB. She doesn't realize it.

I don't mean it will be discovered she has a past like June, however there are a million and one reasons networks cut people off and it's just a ticking time bomb which one will apply to her.

She is nursing at the teat of the executioner. Sooner or later they're going to chop off your head. What a dumb and irresponsible life plan for a mother of eight.

JoyinVirginia said...

Say it isn't so, your comments sum up things very well. I am hoping all the publicity will have the appropriate agency in June's area looking carefully at her living situation and the safety of her children.
as for December, and ratings, who knows? I want to watch Christmas specials in December. Many scripted series show reruns during the holiday period, some curious folks might turn to TFMJG when there is nothing else new on they want to see. I will be busy with real life activities around that time. So i'm always glad hard working admin or some posters are willing to take one for the team and recap and share their impressions of new shows. TFMJG and all those extras in her life.

NJGal51 said...

I think part of the draw of Honey Boo Boo was the fact that they were rednecks and what you'd expect to see on the"People of Walmart" website. But just what does TFW+8 have to offer any more? Back to school? Birthday parties? Home renovation? A yard sale? How very mediocre and boring. Lets face it, the kids don't seem to have any special talents. TLC will use her and film specials until the next train wreck comes along. But another weekly series like she had in her glory days? AIN'T.GONNA.HAPPEN.

sayitisntso said...

I wish the Family Court Judge would ask each child individually if they still want to film, with no individual responses being reported to TFW. She totally reprimanded Collin re: the comment on Leah's hair, and he seemed to be disgusted with her response. He is the maverick, which makes no sense, since he does not visit Jon. Makes one wonder what the hell is going on?

I totally believe her "poison" comments and punishments have had a huge impact on some of the kids' choices to visit Jon. Could be wrong but Cara was close to Jon and I don't see how alienating the kids' from Jon is productive in any way. TFW seems determine to divide and conquer, to meet her own selfish narcissistic needs.

Trust me, the books will be coming out from the kids once this show ends and they are all adults. Right now, they are just trying to survive. Two tweens shut down on interviews on national tv, one who barely appears on the show, 1 boy tup has reportedly not seen his dad for a very long time. Why?

There is no way that TFW is trying to encourage her kids to have a relationship with Jon. This narcissist makes everything about her and it is disgusting that she, as a mom, never considers the needs of her kids, beyond herself. Not going to end well.

Admin, props to you for stating this:

She is nursing at the teat of the executioner. Sooner or later they're going to chop off your head. What a dumb and irresponsible life plan for a mother of eight.

Perfect explanation for her master plan of the filming of her kids to keep the river of flow of cash from drying up like Lake Mead.

They MUST be using her as filler while they go back to the drawing board. I think they're scraping the bottom of the barrel.

I think they know their schtick has a lifespan, and it's aging. How long can you really show multiples, little people, and cupcakes before it wears thin? The HBB fiasco was a ticking time bomb and was inevitable. They played with fire, and fire won. Now they've got to figure out where to go from here.

I would not be at all surprised if they're in crisis mode right now trying to figure out exactly where this network is going to go next. Whether Kate has any place in the new world order is probably completely up in the air at the moment. Kate should be SCARED about where she will fit in next. If there's anywhere for her to fit at all.

EVERYTHING on T.V. has a lifespan. Some are longer than others, but this multiples/little people/cake thing is not an exception. They too are all on a lifespan, it's just a question of when they will die. I think Kate's in total denial if this does not scare her sh&tless.

Call Me Crazy said...

But then, that's maturity.

And consideration and respect and kindness and common decency - all things TFW possesses none of.

It is so strange that 14 yr. old Lauren, Mama Junes daughter is so adamant about taking up for her! I wonder if Mama June is paying her to do this. She paid Anna 500 dollars a month to move into the house when she was pregnant to do the show. If she would do that, it wouldn't surprise me that she would pay Lauren to lie for her.
ROL is saying now that Lauren was forced to watch MMc molest Anna and that he also showed them videos. Someone even suggested that Sugar Bear do a GoFundMe to raise money to get full custody of Alana.

How that jack@ only got 10 years in prison is beyond me. For everything he has done, he should of got life in prison.

A lot of June's actions in this mess remind me so much of TFW. The cover up of another man, fake wedding ceremony, denying she is seeing him.

CC said...

I also wish someone could ask those children if they want to film. However, I also think they should explain to them what the question actually means.

Right now I think those kids see "filming" as traveling, doing fun stuff, going fun places, getting attention and getting freebies for marketing purposes. I also think they have been told by Kate that they will be penniless and out on the street if they don't film.

I'd like someone to ask them each individually if they could do all those things without having actual "cameras" present, and without having to stop for makeup and closeups and retakes, and without the burden of supporting the family, etc, would they prefer it.

AuntieAnn said...

====

A member of Kate's family did tell RH that Kate had been sexually abused by a family member. Apparently she didn't have a happy home life and was regularly beaten by her father. She said herself that she was overly disciplined.

You might think because of this she would be extremely sympathetic with HBB's family situation, but now I wonder if she'll invoke her past and say something as importune as it happened to me too and I got over it. I wouldn't put it past her. She wants to be back on tv that badly.

Ex Nurse said...

Since the news that Jon was at the yard sale, I began a list of speculations:

1-It was Jon's weekend, and since he knows he can't stop the filming, he was being a good guy and going along with it (aka if you can't beat 'em, join 'em

2-He was being paid by TLC to be there

3-Since it was a public sale, he showed up in order to keep TLC from filming by not signing a release

4-Since TFW is an alienator, it was the only way for him to see them

5-TFW made concessions for him to be there to improve her image

6-Reintroduction of a J&K scenario

7-Making the best of a good situation by giving the kids a positive environment

8-He wants his stuff back

9-He did it to annoy TFW

10-He wanted to observe the filming conditions first hand

11-He wants the kids to know that he doesn't hate their mother

12-Adding my own: By being there, he provided a break from filming (see below)

PA requires an exception for a minor under the age of 14 to work at all. Since the maximum hours worked on a Saturday is 8, with a 30" break after 5 hours for a 14 year old, I am assuming that under 14 would be less.

The post that talked about packing up came in at 1:42--that would be, I believe, PST, which would be 4:42 PA time. Not sure what is counted as "working". If it starts at the time they arrive on the "set", then, depending on how much time elapsed before that post came in, it could possibly been a 9 hour day.

I don't know why Jon was there--could be a combination of reasons. But, it does seem that a case could be made that the kids were not working when he was playing with them. Maybe Steve was telling them that the break was over, and it was time to get back to work.

Blowing In The Wind said...

I wish the Family Court Judge would ask each child individually if they still want to film, with no individual responses being reported to TFW.

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

But it's not up to the judge whether they film or not. The judge's role is in custody matters, not to determine if these children are happy about filming or if they want the whole thing to go away and give them privacy. Even if all of the kids said no to filming, what power would the judge hold over the right to film or not to film? Moreover, how would he know if these kids are being honest if, in fact, they are under Kate's control and know exactly what she expects from them and what answers to give? Any real feelings they have, or concerns they express might be subject to the penalty of severeness and I think that by now they darn well know this.

Blowing In The Wind said...

Just wanted to comment that the last word verification I had to type was Ipushed Richard.
Who in the heck is Richard? I didn't push him, I swear.

Ex Nurse said...

To add to my previous comment:
If the purpose of Jon being there was to provide a break for filming, then it would have to have been pre-arranged--IMO of course. What better way to prove that the kids were not working, then having them play with guy that is the poster child for not filming!

I didn't see any time that the sale actually ended. Since the poster that posted at 1:42 was a local, and was there expressly to report to this blog, I am thinking that it was probably less than an hour before she posted. Which would be an 8 or more hour day, depending on when "working" actually started. If they filmed them at the house, before leaving for the sale, then it would be that much longer. Seems to me that the only way to comply with PA child labor laws would be for there to be at least one long break, during which it could be said that kids weren't working. If there is someone designated to protect the kids on set, then they had to have some justification for the long day.

Millicent said...

I most definitely believe Kate has contacted TLC to let them know she and the children are "ready to go" with a replacement series for HBB. She must be drooling at the thought. As others have said, the only thing that matters to TLC is "can we make money?" and "will our advertisers agree to advertise on this show?" That's it. So they may be discussing the possibility of renewing Kate Plus 8 with advertisers, sounding them out. Hopefully advertisers will still be feeling skittish at having been bamboozled by TLC into paying big advertising bucks for HBB, and tell TLC hell no.

I watched part of a TLC show last night about a family that travels around in a big bus singing at churches. Of course, they are ultra religious and the teenage daughters talked about how their dad holds their heart until they meet their intended (blah!). Ultimately, I found the show boring after about 15 minutes. I can't see TLC getting enough viewer interest to generate an actual series. There's only so many times you can see people crammed into a big bus, or singing on a church stage, or discussing how doing laundry qualifies as a "date night."

It's such a shame that TLC doesn't want to put any real efforts into producing quality shows. They would have continued with HBB indefinitely if June's appalling choices were not made public by TMZ. (I really hope the children are removed from her care. The more I hear about every single guy she's been involved with, the more clear it becomes that she has not nor will not protect her children from a serious predator. I never want to hear how June is a good mother again - she clearly has some serious defects in her personality, to the point that she refuses to acknowledge the sexual abuse of her older daughter at the hands of her current boyfriend.)

TLC stinks said...

Her goal has been since the day TLC starting filming to keep it going until the kids reached 18. In her mind, she and the kids are not boring; they are unique and WHY would people not be interested to watch them year after year?

This Honey Boo Boo fiasco was bound to happen because TLC has pushed the limits of decency with their programming. Their film crews and producers are not "friends" or pseudo family members. They essentially spies for the corporation. I would bet you that TLC was fully aware of who Mama June was dating, just as TLC was aware of Jon and Kate's failing marriage. If they could have gotten away with it, they would have introduced Mama June's new boyfriend in an episode. That's how they roll.


Kate is a twit said...

I see where some of the KG fans are now attacking Paul Petersen and Rep. Murt because of the seminar scheduled for tomorrow. Are they worried that the truth might actually come out about how Kate and TLC cared more about the show than they did about the kids? The HBB situation seems to substantiate that.

TLC stinks said...

Some of the kids have told Jon they do not want to film, according to Jon. The fact that she continues to film all eight despite reluctance of some prove that she is in total control at this point. I cannot say if it's bribery or threats. Probably a combination with a whole lot of guilt thrown in. Even Cara, who is withdrawn, makes a dutiful appearance. Mady appears to me all in. The others are still young enough to follow orders and want to please mom. I believe Jon has no power to stop her. All he can do is love and support emotionally those kids until they reach an age to stand up for what they want. And that day will come. Any of us who have raised teenagers know that day will come.

10/24/2014
HARRISBURG—Rep. Thomas Murt (R-Montgomery) will host Jon Gosselin, who starred in the “Jon & Kate Plus 8” reality television show, and Paul Petersen, the star of “The Donna Reed Show,” at the Upper Moreland High School for a conversation on child labor laws within the Pennsylvania film and television industry.

The event will be held Oct. 30, at 7 p.m. The high school is located at 3000 Terwood Road in Willow Grove,

“We’ve made great strides in protecting our child performers, but much more needs to be done,” Murt said. “This event will begin the conversation.”

Paul Petersen, who founded “A Minor Consideration,” an advocacy group that supports reforms to protect child actors across the country, was instrumental in helping Murt rewrite Pennsylvania’s child labor laws.

In 2010, Murt hosted a Majority Policy Committee hearing on the “Jon & Kate Plus 8” show and whether the producers of the show had violated state child labor laws. That hearing led to a major transformation of the state’s child labor laws in 2013.

Gosselin will discuss his experiences on the show.

The event is open to the public. Call 215-674-3755 for more information.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gee, this is a perfect opportunity for Kate to show up with her flying monkey to plead her case. She's a 'single mom raising eight kids on her own' after all. Exploiting her kids is the only way to support HER.

I hope a local will attend and report back. I really want to hear what Jon has to say about this, especially now in light of the recent upheaval in TLC land.

*************************************************
I get what your saying, but are they capable of making a sound decision. This is why adults are in charge of children's well being and make sound decisions on their part. I feel is Jon gets enough evidence backing him up (Peterson, therapists, teachers etc) that filming is NOT in the kids' best interest (present and future) he can "again" bring this to a judge. Now with this hoopla over HBB, maybe right now is the RIGHT time

And apparently she handled all the finances, sound familiar? They're reporting that he has no money, living in a trailer that TLC bought for him when they split and that he's been borrowing money from friends...

fidosmommy said...

All these Honey Boo Boo allegations may spur a renewed interest in reality TV "life behind the cameras." As result, there may be a surge of interest in Robert's book. Sounds like a heartless response to a tragic situation, I know, but the thought did occur to me.

Secondly, I thought the TLC contract forbade any public pictures (during filming) of the Gosselin children - all pictures were the property of TLC.
Am I remembering that correctly?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I agree with Vanessa.

While the kids should certainly be allowed to share their thoughts and feelings, they are still far too young to understand and appreciate what filming really means for them.

I still think they are all too young to really grasp what "forever on film" really means. Kids that age can't, they have a very limited concept of anything other than the here and now. I think the twins are getting to the age where they feel filming can be very embarrassing and annoying sometimes, but that sort of feeling only scratches the surface of what it's all about. That's just ONE piece of it.

I have to recommend again Missy Francis's book about her childhood. It is very interesting to see exactly when in a child's development they can really appreciate their circumstances. She didn't REALLY start grasping what this all meant until she was 16 or so. And she's a very smart woman. A child's brain just isn't ready yet until then. That is when she started "embezelling" her own money to protect it from her mother. She literally opened a separate account and stole royalty checks out of the mailbox before her mother opened them. Had she been mature enough to understand what was going on before, she would have done that long before age 16.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Murt and Petersen's and Jon's timing couldn't be better though I'm sure this was planned before them.

CC said...

Vanessa/Admin,

I agree with you both!

I didn't mean to imply that the children should DECIDE if they want to film. I just wanted someone to ask them in a way that they understand what that question "Do you want to film?" really means. I'm not sure they get the question.

Kate insists they want to film. Mady and (I think) Cara both said in that horrid interview on The View that they want to film, (do the show, etc). I just think it might be important to see if they understand what is really being asked when they are asked by TLC or The View or the Today Show if they want to "film." I'm curious to know if they are asked the question differently (as I stated above) what their answer will be.

Even if they understand the question and say yes they still want the cameras there I'm not saying they should be able to make that choice.

So yes, I definitely agree, minor children should not be allowed to decide if they want to film, regardless of their reason, or if they even seem to understand the implications.

@RepTomMurt If Jon Gosselin wanted the children off TV so bad then why did he take Kate to court to get his HALF of the TLC money she earns?

Where the hell did this person get that information from? I guess that she not only believes all the negative stories about Jon, but is also making up new ones.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

And Admin (#22), I think Jon can be a very effective spokesman
for the dark side of reality TV. He has admitted doing wrong,
which has kept me supporting him through a few somewhat questionable choices. He was certainly seduced by the
money and the lifestyle, and it all vanished into thin air.
His relationship with his children has mightily suffered, and
with some of them, might be irreparably damaged. He's a
cautionary tale.

Oh, good grief. Now they are tweeting Tom Murt. I know him, and believe me, he's not going to take their crap seriously. In fact, it will have the opposite effect and show what nut cases they are.

It could be why TFW jumped right in and is ready to film 'tomorrow'. Gotta get as much in as she can before they make more of those damn child labor laws. They are such a hindrance to her.

If Jon is going to be speaking onstage somewhere tomorrow at 7,
I wonder if TFW will be tweeting. You know, to remind everyone
that she's home with her babies, doing it all, 24/7, while her ex is
out trying to glom on to some old-timey actor and Mr. Politics Man.
Maybe she'll save tomorrow night for the big reveal of how much
money the animal rescue place made. She'll need to do something
to divert attention from the father of her children shining a light on
the damage that reality TV has done to his family.

Their film crews and producers are not "friends" or pseudo family members.
************************************************************
NO, they most certainly are NOT!
There's footage of the G8 where the only adult present was the person filming. There is footage of HBB alone with the camera person as well. Why do pedophiles tend to have employment where they can have access to children?
-these guys could be predators
-Blankeship
-priests
-cub/guide leaders
-sandusky
-coaches
-Hollywood/Corey Feldman

NOT saying that predators are not EVERYWHERE
but why would you let strangers into your home and allow them to film your kids? If tfw's mamma bear instinct didn't kick in then, what's going to make it kick in now? Same with June? ESPECIALLY since one of your daughters was raped. Oh,right, never mind the crew, you knowingly invite the predator into your home.

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

I don't get it. I really don't. Why wouldn't anyone who cares anything about children want laws to protect them when filmed? I don't care who the kids are, Gosselins, or anyone off the street. In fact, you'd think that if they are parents, they wouldn't want to see a child, ANY child, subjected to long working hours, constant filming, and the devastating result of being put on display with no regards to privacy? What in the world is wrong with these fans?

I guess the only answer is that they are sheeple, totally incapable of any logical thinking that possibly is the result of drinking Kate's Kool Aid for such a long time.

And no, Joy, I have no memory of pushing Richard. I hope he's okay. ;)

foxy said...

You would think that TLC new June had 4 kids with 4 different fathers. The second girl's father was also a child molester and is currently in prison on unrelated charges. Nobody not even June knows who the father to the 3rd girl is. I must say though she has a lot of confidence and a very big ego. This is going to follow that family forever. One day the younger girls will wake up and realize what really happened in their lives. I am glad that show was cancelled.

Maybe they can go on Maury and figure out the family tree.

So happy for the couple that has 4 children, all single births, IIRC, and now she is pregnant with quints! No masterplan, no fertility drugs, no out of the country ovulation stimulator shots in a fake name, no just one more. Natural and God given!

The parallels between the TLC "mothers" are certainly there.

Both TFW and Mama June controlled the money. Both claim the children have trust funds. Both kicked the fathers of the stars to the curb, penniless (more or less) compared to what was coming in when ratings were high. Both willing to risk the safety and health of their children. Both sought fame on the backs of their children.

Yes, indeed it's only a matter of time before the MSM bring these pathetic mothers to the attention of the general public.

I'd like someone to ask them each individually if they could do all those things without having actual "cameras" present, and without having to stop for makeup and closeups and retakes, and without the burden of supporting the family, etc, would they prefer it.
-------------------------------
Is that realistic? Do you think K has enough saved to provide the McMansion, private school, college, plus luxury travel until the kids are grown? And could K Gosselin, ex-star provide the special treatment and special access that TLC can provide?

I don't think they can have all the perks that TLC provides without the filming, and it wouldn't be right to promise or imply that they could.

A skilled interviewer could of course ask them for more details about why they want or don't want to film, and perhaps get them to think more deeply about their own feelings, and that would be good.

I thought that when the kids were going to Australia or some distant location, Jon opposed the filming, but the Family Court Judge ruled she could travel with kids in order to provide for them financially?
She even made a big fuss about calling Jon on film once the flight landed. If I am wrong, someone please correct me : )

I'm doing the HAPPY DANCE that Honey Boo Boo is canceled. It was a terrible show, degrading, disgusting, the worst show TLC has put on. I tried to watch it once, managed halfway, had to change channels.

I was watching Wendy, today and they talked about JK reunion and now is the time, for Kate to call TLC and get the HBB spot. Which, I'm sure Kate was on the phone.

Don't anyone shoot me, but if ratings are fairly good in December, I predict Kates return to TLC line up. Cause at this point, TLC really does not have much of a line up. They keep replaying all the Duggar episodes, especially the current ones, some have been played about 6 times or more. TLC put on the Family who live in a bus, I watched BORING! The guy w/5 wives is also boring!

The only watchable shows on TLC is the Extreme Cheapskates, and Extreme Couponing, since they no longer run the Hoarders show. JMO

So how much did Kate donate to the animal shelter? Anyone?

I think Kate's situation is somewhat unique. The family had a show that ran for many seasons, then she got her own show which was cancelled and then it comes back in December. I first thought it was only going to be one episode, the going- back-to-school one. But now it appears that there will be more than one episode based on all the filming that is going on. Makes me think she is getting a whole new season. Most of us continue to wonder how it is that she gets cancelled then comes back on TLC. It’s because there is a need/desire out there in TV land to see her and the kids and TLC knows it.
People are so very polarized about Kate and that is the fuel that feeds this fire. She pops her head up every so often on magazine covers and rag sites and it keeps people in the loop about what is going on with her. I never thought she had a shelf life. I have always believed the fruitloops out there would continually want to know how those amazing kids and gorgeous Kate are doing even throughout their teen years and beyond. I think TLC has never had a situation like this where they get such a kickback from Kate based on who she is and how many people love to hate her. If their goal is to put her on TV then take her off for a while and then put her back on, I believe that is genius on their part. I’m starting to see a pattern here with TLC and Kate. As long as they get the viewers they need for the production they’ve sunk money into, and they usually do for some reason, it’s a win-win for all. Kate may not get the TV gigs on the Today Show and Inside Edition like she once did, but she can still make loads of cash being on TLC every now and then. That will be enough to feed her ego to stay on TV and to fund her lifestyle that she loves so much.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

much saying you don't believe there should be laws protecting kids?

If kate and her sheeple were smart they would say they support any laws that are designed to protect children on television as well as kate and TLC have protected the gosselins laws or no laws. However they are not smart. They're dumb, and by opposing laws designed to protect children they make themselves look guilty.

fade2black said...

I believe with every fiber of my being that TLC knew all about the HBB sordid backstory and had contingency plans to spin the tale long before it was ever made public. Can you imagine working in that slimy, soulless, money grubbing office? Ugh, what a moral cesspool. And yet, tfw can't wait to shove her children back in that grimy limelight. Such a sterling example of motherhood.

P.S. Thanks, FlimsyFlamsy, that was nice. :)

redbirdsings said...

I watched Wendy Williams today and I wish she would do more research on Jon and kate. She said he was homeless, has no place to live, how is he going to keep the kids.

He is not homeless! He has a small apartment.

Then on the Inside Scoop segment, they were talking about HBB. Wendy, to me was being a little dramatic for show, while sipping on her tea. She had and the girl from ROL, their info was weird too. IIRC, ROL published that Mama June got Anna to move in when the show started and she paid her 500 a month. The girl from ROL just said that she moved back in.

On the Talk, Mrs. O really was disgusted with HBB. She said it was getting worse and worse when they talk about it. She said it was getting more worse and twisted by the minute.

redbirdsings said...

This is just unbelievable. All that money that HBB made and Sugar Bear said this:

That he has no home, he is living with a friend, something about no money, he doesn't have the means to go for full custody of Alana, UNLESS she is harmed. So she will have to be harmed before he is able to do anything to help her?

Meanwhile, June hired a lawyer to help her. Where is all the money that HE made on HBB? I wonder if she convinced him to put all of the money in one account and she may have or may not of put money in for the 3 girls. Because WHERE would she get the money to plunk down 25K to buy 2 cars. Wait, she said she was buying a car for her daughter. Her daughter, Anna? Lauren, 14, Alana, 9? He should at least be able to get an apt. for them. They filmed for 3 years. Someone suggested that he go on GoFundMe to fund getting Alana and helping him with her.

What a mess!

Rhymes with Witch said...

I don't follow the twitter wars except what's posted on here from the odd sheeple's timeline (and when I say odd I mean odd lol).

What if anything are the sheep saying on twitter about the HBB fiasco?

Ex Nurse said...

Putting aside the ethics of the situation, but, I am wondering if a case could be made that Jon should get a share of the TLC paycheck. Given that the kids are the draw, and compose 8/9ths of the cast of the show. Filming is much more challenging now than when TLC began filming this family. They have to deal with added restrictions from those pesky, darn child labor laws impose, a school shedule, and, now, a custody schedule. At the very least, it seems that he would be entitled to a portion of any filming done during his custody time.

I am not advocating this, or saying that the story was true at all. Just wondering if he could be entitled to part of the proceeds.

TLC stinks said...

To a commenter upthread: Actually, although TLC has been filming off and on for months, I do not believe Kate has snagged a weekly show (yet). TLC has always filmed plenty and then the editor takes over. Lots of man hours and film go into a one hour show. I am thinking it will be the same setup as the last update, but TLC has not made any announcements. All in all, she's made good money this year. But, as we know, it will never be enough.

Sugar Bear and June are not legally married, right? What would he be entitled to if TLC was paying only June?

foxy said...

Redbirdsings 61. There are 4 daughters. Anna 20, Jessica 17, Lauryn 14 and Alana 9. I believe she bought the car for the 17 year old. June has an eye disease or glaucoma, therefore she cannot drive. Maybe she wanted a car in the family for errands, emergencies and just because. I am still glad the show was cancelled. Honey Boo Boo was becoming a very disrespectful and spoiled person. I hope this family can be healed and have a sane life.

Susie Cincinnati said...

But they NEED to see these children and like TFW, the sheeples' needs are primary.

Their priority is Kate. What they need to see is Kate and only Kate. Their dilemma is that without the kids, there is no Kate. The kids are baggage, but necessary baggage.

getofftwitter said...

I heard on ET, that June has total control of the money from TLC. Since Sugar Bear & June are not married, he gets nothing and that he is getting money from friends & relatives to fight for custody of Alana.

Someone here asked why they bring back Kate, same reason they brought back the Roloffs, they need money, and core fans are there and TLC has nothing else to offer, except old concepts.

Terri said...

Just watched Entertainment Tonight and they said that 1 month before the Honey Boo Boo show originally aired that Anna (the daughter molested) and the family wanted to seal the court documents about the case and TLC helped them with the legal end of it. They will do ANYTHING to protect their moneymakers and it makes me sick to my stomach.

Kate protects her own kids, so why should a sheeple worry? A law will just mirror what Kate already does, would it not?

This is for people other than Kate who don't protect their kids, is it not? You would think the support for it would be unanimous.

They just can't think anything through.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I don't think it's the court records that busted June. I thought it was one of her daughters spilled the beans. In fact I'm not even sure if they've been released.

What you can see and which I don't think they may have been able to seal is the actual rap sheet criminal record. Those apparently the media has pulled. So that proves it happens, but does not give you any details.

As far as the likely lengthy police reports and forensic exams and CPS reports go, I haven't heard that any of those have been released. Perhaps TLC helped seal those.

I really am dying to know whether TLC knew of this and tried to cover it up, and whether it will come out. This has the potential to bring down a whole network. Seriously. I think we are on the cusp of something huge here, if true. The zero tolerance policy for covering up sexual abuse is the new thing. I don't see why TLC would get a pass. We always talk about karma when it comes to Kate, but karma is going to come to TLC too eventually.

PA Dutch Mom said...

I honestly don't know how Kate would manage to pull off a regular series with the kids in school, especially with the twins. Their academics are so intense, and the amount of work they will have in Upper School will not allow them to take off on a whim just to film. If they do, there will be serious consequences for absenteeism and their education will suffer. They are advised to take five very challenging academic courses per trimester and one practicum in the arts, drama, music. With the amount of school work they have, plus a vigorous filming schedule, my concern would be that they'd be on overload and really couldn't handle the stress of it all. It would take its toll, and no kid should have to go through that.

If it comes down to which is more important -- their education or filming, sadly, I think we know the answer to that one.

I totally and completely agree.

Sure she could try to cram it all in on the weekends but that's only going to cause these kids to resent it and rebel. Not to mention besides school they have friends, activities, sports. They're getting old enough to realize if they refuse to film there's not much she can do about it.

I just don't find this sort of school realistic for having this outside filming life. This is why kids who have regular series rarely are able to attend school during the series. They have to get tutored both on and off set, or go to a special Hollywood school where absences are okay, which that area of PA I doubt has. Maybe Philly and def NYC, but that's WAY too far.

She is selfish, and I think she's offered them up to TLC for whatever and however TLC wants. I don't think she's even allowing herself to THINK about how this would all really work or be realistic about it. The Duggars have a regular series but they are homeschooled and even then most of the focus is on the Duggars who are adults now. The little ones do maybe a quick interview each episode and that's it. That's just not how the Gosselin show has been structured. Same with the Little People. Jacob who is in school maybe gets 2 minutes of airtime. It's all about Jeremy and Zach and the parents, none of whom are still in school. But for the Gosselins only one person of the cast of nine is not in school. It's not gonna work.

They are not toddlers anymore who can just be available wherever and whenever. And if you are going to make it like that, they're going to rebel. I'm willing to bet all this filming this fall has been a different beast for them than ever before. I'm willing to bet a lot of them are thinking about it in a whole different way than before, now that they are older and care about other things like friends.

High Sodium Content said...

I was never a big HBB fan, only watched a handful or two of the show. Mama June is gross. You can be a big overweight girl and not be gross. I do think Sugar Bear really cared for and loved all the girls and the grand baby. He had some serious health problems last year and was hospitalized more than once. Maybe that is why he is w/o a job now. He always worked in the earlier shows. Alana is not a dumb girl. In fact, she's a lost smarter and talks more educated than any of the Gosselin kids who are older. What ever is up w/ June is beyond me. I've never experience abuse or known anyone who has been abused. She needs help. I hate to say it, for sounding like I'm exonerating her behavior, I am not. But they really did come together as a family and do some very kind things for their community. At Christmas time, even in bad weather, they were out there w/o a light show, meeting with fans and collecting canned goods, etc. for the needy in their area. It is sickening she put a man/men ahead of her daughters. Most likely she was also abused, maybe she doesn't even remember it. Maybe this will be a big wake up call to TLC to think what families they are putting on tv. All of the gossips sights making a ton of money off of this tragedy should pony up and help Mike get set up in a safe place where he can take care of Alana and the other daughters if they want. He may not be of great intellect, but sometimes love and caring about others is tops. The girls can learn that they don't need to be the "class clown" to get attention. I'd like to see Anna get some $ from TLC and get herself a better education and stability. Didn't she and her husband move to live w/ his father?

I know, Pat. I was just thinking the same thing. Milo tweeted that LOM loves Kate's long hair and he wants her to grow her hair. lol! Of course, Gladys tweeted that Kate's hair is "clean, shining and windblown." I wonder if Milo really does have vision problems.

Why all of the fuss over Kate's long hair? Her hair has been long for some time, long and stringy, but long nevertheless. What set off the media (and the sheeple) this time? It's not like Kate suddenly appeared with long hair. Of course, maybe Milo and the sheep have been so busy checking out the good bra that they never really noticed that Kate's had extensions on anything other than her "girls."

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...


There is a difference between not believing that Jon Gosselin is a good spokesperson for the cause and not believing in the cause itself. Do you have examples of tweets where the "sheeple" indicate that they are against child labor laws overall or Murt's law in particular?

&&&

Why yes, yes I do. I vividly remember their reaction when Murt first said something. This was before Jon was involved. Here is but a small, tiny sampling:

"Can we say grasping at straws? What is the difference between filming for TV or the movies? It is a difference with no distinction."

"It just seems to me like more attention grabbing from politicians on the backs of the Gosselins. Yawn."

"It’s also pretty ridiculous to say, after they’ve been filming for four years, “Oops, sorry, you shouldn’t have been doing that,you have to stop. Start again next year, then it’ll be fine.”"

"I think is also ‘interesting’ that he always comes out with his ‘stuff’ when Kate is either about to be on TV in some significant way, i.e. DWTS, her show, etc."

"Seems a bit nitpicky to me and I wonder who is putting him up to this. Is the haters letter writing campaign so annoying that he must deal with this? Seems to me he would have more pressing concerns."

"if Murt was in political office in most states, people would vote him out for not taking care of the real issues . Most states welcome filming as it brings dollars to their states. Murt should concentrate why PA has failing schools, unemployment, taxes, etc."

As you can see, it's obvious many don't think child labor laws in general are a "pressing concern."

There are some sheeple who actually admit the laws need to be better, that is absolutely true. But many are against it in general, believing this is not important or pressing.

Oh and also I like the nitpicky comment.

Yes it's so nitpick to protect a child.

They are against it in general. Most of them.

I actually respect the ones who admit he had a point.

And these are old comments. Murt was reelected by a landslide despite their slam at PA claiming any other state would vote him out, and I assume he's up again this year.

I guess that can't grasp that this is not his only bill, that he does a whole host of other issues, and that the good people of PA think it's a good idea in the first place. As I recall there was also very little opposition to the bill either so what is the point of voting him out only to vote in another politician who also supports it.

Millicent said...

A sheeple argument:
"It’s also pretty ridiculous to say, after they’ve been filming for four years, “Oops, sorry, you shouldn’t have been doing that,you have to stop. Start again next year, then it’ll be fine.”"

What if this argument was used against putting health warning signs on cigarettes? "After people have smoked for so many years, it would be ridiculous to say "Oops, smoking has been proven to be a serious health risk, and you might want to stop."

Once you learn that something can be harmful, especially to minors, why would it be ridiculous to try to make a change to improve the situation?

There's some faulty logic among them and then there are reasonable sheeple who didn't have a problem with the concept of laws in general but thought this was just a witch hunt against the Gosselins or some sort of political gamesmanship. I don't agree, but at least it's a reasonable opinion.

I only posted comments because I find it easier to search than twitter. They were all over twitter too though. I don't see that it matters whether it's tweets or web comments, its all the same sentiment.

I also thought it would be more fair to show comments from one of the more reasonable sheeple sites, instead of picking some fringe nutty sheeple site, to show that it was indeed even reasonable sheeple who truly don't think child labor laws in GENERAL are a good thing. Some do, which I was very clear to say. But some definitely don't. They were very clear, this is not a pressing issue, he should be concerned about education, not child labor laws, etc.

Milo, you clown. How much easier would it have been for Kate to go to her local Goodwill store, or Salvation Army? They have racks and racks of Halloween costumes for five dollars. Five times eight is $40. I'm sure she could have afforded that (maybe less if the twins aren't dressing up). Kate makes everything so difficult for herself, and Milo just loves to build her up by pointing out how Kate is the Energizer Bunny.

LOL, she tweeted another year's costumes as if she recreated the Venus de Milo (pun!) when in reality she slapped a little duct (duck?) tape on some old jeans to make someone a hippie or hobo or something. Actually, I think she used some offensive word like hobo or homeless or something. I tried to find it and gave up. Not worth the two minutes.

Starz22 said...

Question
If TLC is linked in covering up the child molestation on HBB can't they be held liable? There has got to be some kind of charges that TLC can be charged with.
Now...what about TLC covering up Kate's child abuse? If the right people looked into,I'm sure they'd have no problems getting the needed evidence. Confidentially Agreements should be null and void when it comes to abuse on children. If people who signed these CA's were told they would not lose their jobs or be fined or fired over coming foreword I think many would.

As for the kids and contracts. The kids are minors and can not sign contracts. So they can't be held to anything.
So what's stopping the kids once they turn 18, from suing the shit out of TLC? Suing Kate wont get them much...most of the money will be gone by them. But if they sue TLC for turning a blind eye to the abuse they suffered could get them a pretty penny.

While it's highly unlikely, conceivably yes they could be held liable.

If June were charged with felony child abuse, and TLC knowingly and actively put the children at risk, they could be accessory I suppose.

However in seven years working in child abuse I've only seen a few people charged with accessory in child abuse, and it was when the child ended up dead or severely abused. Thank goodness it doesn't appear HBB was abused, just put at great RISK of abuse.

It appears that "Uncle Poodle" attempted to sell photos/stories to Fox News - they declined to purchase and I'm not clear on the timing...but if TLC knew this was about to hit the proverbial fan (because TMZ DOES pay for stories), it makes sense their quick reaction to cancelling and the PR blitz to blame this all on June. As someone up above wrote....what are they hiding about Kate Gosselin? Kate's own written words certainly would lead one to believe TLC knew what a monster is was.

---------------------------
I don't think she gives a damn about Halloween, it is all about filming. On the other hand, her kids probably want to be normal and do trick or treating and she is now trying to scramble and get some half-assed costumes together, as the priority is filming.

Likewise, the tups don't do any activities, as it is too much work for her, and she has to keep them freed up for filming. She should be ashamed of herself!

I really think all this stuff with Kate and her new look is a very calculated move on TLC's part. They are trying to "repackage" her if you will. I don't care what they do, make-up or no make-up, dressing down and trying to come across as a kinder gentler Kate will not pass the smell test in my opinion. She will still have the black heart beating inside her and short of a heart transplant they will never be able to change the nasty person she truly is.

If true, this shows complicity. Not good.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Terri (#135), I think TLC knew they might be pulling the plug on HBB,
and were already figuring out how to "rebrand" TFW. Hence the
yard sale, and the "just plain folks" version of her that they
unveiled Saturday. Smiling, chatty, philanthropic? If there's
a paycheck at the end of the day, she's in.

NJGal51 said...

My guess is that her hair is a big deal in the tabloids because the original stories were plants and many tabs just reprint other stories. It would be news if she'd announced that she was going to donate it to Locks of Love but we know that would be a lie because they don't take bleached hair because it dissolves in the process of making it into a kid's wig. TFW's hair is so overly processed that the only way for it to recover would be for her to cut it short and let it grow in. I'm convinced it always looks greasy because of the product she puts in it so it doesn't break off. You can't bleach, bleach, re-bleach and color, color, color for 3 or 4 years with hair that length and expect it to be healthy. We've seen pictures of her hair at its worst and sorry sheeple but once long hair has been damaged to that extent it just can't come back. And I don't care how famous your hairdresser is they can only work with what they've got. That's why she's got either a weave or wears the clip ins. Many of the stars who have recently gone short have said that all the processing "took a toll" on their hair so it was time for a change.

OK, my hair rant is over.

Wonder if she'll say how much in total they raised, or just how much she gave to the ARL.

TLC stinks said...

Her hair is gross. For some reason these stupid tabloids think long hair = young looking. Whatever is going on with how she looked at the yard sale, it was totally calculated. Normally she just crams her hair into a ball cap if it's not styled. And the no makeup was also calculated either part of the storyline or she wanted to show off her smooth face (thank you, Botox). I am pretty sure it was planned because I cannot imagine not putting on a little makeup if you are being filmed. I did not see any makeup on Mady either. I think they did a big scene about waking up late and having to rush to the church.

TLC stinks said...

I will guarantee you the Figure 8 film crew reported what they witnessed at the Gosselin home. TLC was at that point too invested in the popular show. There is a conspiracy of silence because nobody wants to lose their job. What has surprised me is that TLC is right back supporting her. They must think she can still draw viewers. Must be hard for them to let go of someone who gave them their highest ratings ever. They are opening a can of worms and maybe HBB will give them pause to pursue any new deal with Kate. TLC definitely had a hand in destroying Jon and covering up any abuse Kate inflicted on the kids and dogs.

Mel said...

I wonder if they're going to have their 'typical Gosselin Candy Sale' this year.

You know...the one wear the sextuplets don't get to go trick or treating, but the twins go with friends. TFW buys Halloween candy the day after (on clearance, saving herself $20), hides it around the house, and makes the kids find it, amid much squeals of joy. Then they trade amongst themselves.

I have a candy hunt throughout the house and let them collect their candy in their Halloween pumpkins!....
I was thrilled to find ALL the Halloween candy on clearance since it was a day after Halloween and filled a basket for only $21 instead of $35-$40!....
we all paraded to the basement for open season on candy hunting! What a huge hit! The squeals of joy emitted were so rewarding! Then up stairs for our typical Gosselin Candy Sale!


I think that was the year she went to NYC to be on teevee, making no arrangements for trick or treating for the sextuplets. The year before she went to Australia by herself, again making no trick or treating arrangements.

TLC must not have been filming those years, eh?

TLC really lives up to that saying: "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear." They must be desperate for a show of any kind to replace HBB if they are seriously considering re-packaging Kate in a more likeable form. Ultimately, this simply won't work. Kate cannot change her inner self and that will come through loud and clear. Sure she can be chatty and friendly for one day, if she thinks her chance at getting back on TLC hinge on it.

She has been without a regular tv show for quite some time. I think it has temporarily humbled her. But the minute she gets the opportunity to be back on tv on a regular basis, that old witchy self will roar back into life. Demanding, unappreciative, "I'm better than you" Kate will surface once again.

And the children appear to be average ordinary children, with a lot of sibling rivalry and teenage brattiness thrown in. How is that appealing to viewers? Why would back to school shopping and a rummage sale be riveting viewing?

If TLC signs her up again, they will only be proving that they are being run by amoral idiots. This I already knew.

Reported to whom? The top dogs? Not necessarily. I would think that it's possible that if they witnessed anything inappropriate that they would keep this to themselves rather than risk notifying the network. If they had reported abuse, it would seem that the network would have been running around trying to silence them and therefore their jobs would have been on the line. Moreover, if they had reported what they witnessed and TLC couldn't have put a lid on it, the show may have gone the same route as HBB, and the film crew would be scrambling to find other jobs. I think that if they did see something, they talked among themselves, but I seriously doubt that they went tattling to their bosses about it.

Like I said on last thread: TLC is trying to make Kate into a loving, caring, normal mom.

Which we all know Kate is not any of the above. Kate put on a good acting job!

Is this Kate's acting debut?

I agree with people here, this new acting , won't last, as soon as she get back into a regular TV filming, Kate will return to the way she was and probably be worse than before. I also think Halloween will be filmed.

Anna looks devastated on the E! crying, bless her heart. June Shannon is a lowlife beyond hades. How can she say on that self made hush hush video that the truth will come out when pictures of her and the child rapist house hunting and he is touching Alana. She is in bed with him in a motel room, buying him a car and it was delivered to the child rapists registered sex offender's home address.

Exactly. Kate's had long hair since Ted Gibson glued in a gazillion extensions.
Also, it's hair extensions, folks. You know how much that costs?
So, no, I don't see this as rebranding Kate as a "normal" mom. She's got incredibly expensive hair, tanning and nails, so what's relatable about that?

Also, her hair is blah. Stick straight and it just hangs with zero style.

AuntieAnn said...

This is rich: O'Neill's statement to the Television Critics Associated Panel (2009)

Over the last four years and through 100 episodes, we've captured this remarkable family's entertaining chaos. Viewers fell in love and the show developed a passionate, loyal following.
But this past spring, life intervened and the family's status changed. It was certainly something we never expected, nor planned to have happen. But this has resulted in unprecedented television.

Our approach to the circumstance was simple: to cover the family with great care and thoughtfulness as they dealt with a subject that is all too familiar to many American families today.

Jon and Kate have never said they were perfect, which has made them relatable and created an undeniable connection with the viewers. We will continue to capture this family's journey in a respectful and sensitive way.

The show comes back on Monday and most new episodes remain a work in progress. But I will tell you: the iconic couch is gone. Jon and Kate will now have separate chairs for their interview.

You're still going to see two parents that love their kids, but you'll be seeing them parenting separately. You'll see what it's like when Kate has to put up a tent for a backyard camping experience by herself. Or, you'll see Jon trying to cook up a pizza for the kids.

Viewers will see Jon and Kate date.

As far as new people and places that may be cycling into Jon and Kate's life, we are taking it on a case-by-case basis.

This is real life. It's important to remember that our cameras are only there for moments in time, and those moments have limits.


Here we are five years later and her pile of bs is still steaming away and getting bigger.

The camera are only there for moments and those moments have limits? Meaning: when it gets too abusive we turn off the cameras and take a vow of silence.

We will see Jon and Kate dating? lol. Kate's still running around with her flying monkey. When are they going to film one of their "dates"?

All This Is That said...

What the sheeple just don't understand is that this forum is about laws protecting children on reality television. It has absolutely nothing to do with Jon's employment history, nor his partying with Hardy, nor his private divorce/visitation issues with Kate.

They are just too darn dumb to get it, but heck, when they couldn't understand the meaning of "dismissed with prejudice," I guess it's no surprise that they don't understand why Mr. Petersen and Representative Murt are holding this discussion.

Yes, I remember that, but was it really ever confirmed or just word out on the street? We may never know.

" It wasn’t the right haircut for her so it took away from how pretty she is. Now you’re no longer distracted by the haircut. She definitely looks better. She looks a lot healthier.”

Who is this guy Wes Sharpton? Does he have any idea what kind of unhealthy lifestyle this woman leads?

Good grief she looks like the scarecrow in the wizard of oz. which is weird because a few weeks ago she had the cowardly lion extensions and she looked just as ridiculous as with this straight straw mop. Healthier? I don't think so.

MikeB said...

I think her picture on Yahoo looks better than she normally does. She is actually smiling which is what is making most of the difference. In most of her other pictures she either has the fake smile of someone posing for the camera or she is scowling.

Having said that, I do think the picture highlights the work she has had done on her appearance. The teeth appear to be veneers, the forehead is still baby-bottom smooth, and her chin is more pronounced. The hair also looks like extensions from the shoulders down. I think her hair is quite thin and you can pretty plainly see where the natural hair is feathered back over the extensions which drop straight down directly behind her right ear.

She is having quite a bit of help trying to look fairly normal.

I have no idea, but isn't it a sad state of affairs when it's a big "to do" when Jon and Kate are breathing the same air?
After 6 years, they should be at least able to interact civilly and even warmly, and not act like it's a bfd for them to be in the same place at the same time.

Much ado about nothing. I don't give Kate credit for acting like a grown up, although I'm sure this will play out with the utmost drama as Kate preens on her throne about what an amazing person she was, keeping it together as her children's father had the nerve to come within 5 feet of her.

Is it known what Steve said to Jon? Did Kate sic the flying monkey on the poor guy?

Math Girl said...

From the article linked in Bill's post:

After news surfaced that "Mama June" Shannon of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is dating a man convicted ten years ago of molesting her own daughter, TLC canceled the series effective immediately.

I thought the man had been ACCUSED of molesting June's daughter Anna, but CONVICTED of molesting another child. Am I wrong?

If I'm right, why would the author of an otherwise thoughtful article get it wrong? Can't be bothered to get fact straight? Or thinks readers are too dumb to understand what really happened?

I saved the picture to my photo app and then enlarged it and you can see right at the top of her right ear where the extension is knotted (weaved?) to her hair. And her neck and complexion? As Redbirdsings would say, oh my-lanta!

"This is rich: O'Neill's statement to the Television Critics Associated Panel (2009)

...[This is real life. It's important to remember that our cameras are only there for moments in time, and those moments have limits.]

Here we are five years later and her pile of bs is still steaming away and getting bigger.

The camera are only there for moments and those moments have limits? Meaning: when it gets too abusive we turn off the cameras and take a vow of silence."

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

What a load of BS indeed. The minute you set up cameras and start filming for public consumption, and a hefty paycheck, it ceases to have anything to do with "real life" whatsoever.

And like you say Auntie, and when it all gets "too real", we shut the cameras off and deny any culpability.

Regarding the decision to cancel HBB, TLC made the following statement (in part)...

"Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well-being.”

To me, this is the most hypocritical statement that's ever been made about children in reality t.v. and it makes me want to puke.

Remarkable kids? If remarkable means marketable, then okay...I see their point. After all, they're just protecting their investments, right?

But it feels like TLC is only trying to justify exploiting very average children who happen to be born into side show families with parents willing to sign contracts that sell said child's privacy for their own narcissistic need to be rich and famous.

(Sorry, bit of a run on but I was on a roll.)

In the end, I'm sure TLC can legally weasel it's way out of responsibility for the abuse suffered by the children featured in their reality shows.

After all, it was their parents doing the abusing...TLC just filmed the moments around it.

TLC stinks said...

In order for Jon to pick up his kids for his custody time, he had no choice (I bet per Kate) to come towards the end of the garage sale. I think it was deliberately set up because she knew there would be paps. It worked! I do not believe for one second Jon crashed the yard sale. I believe he was invited to pick up the kids from there. She probably played it up with those cold looks for the camera. She is very, very manipulative.

Tucker's Mom said...

TLC can try to paint themselves as socially responsible and caring, especially when it comes to kids, but they worship at the alter of the almighty dollar, and leave a trail of collateral damage in their wake.

I'm betting TLC knew that June was seeing that child molesting pig, and I think they knew and Jon and Kate's marriage was a sham.

They just react when it becomes public.

I just went and saw the picture.

OH MY-LANTA!! I blew it up to 400% and WHAT is that round pea size shaped ball sitting on top of her right ear? Is that some kind of hair holder or a tick, that is about to burst? You can see where those extensions were knotted into her head almost!

Bet she loves that away time from the kids at the say-lawn, sitting on her behind enjoying spending her money that she made off the kids back and dreaming of the new possibility of getting HER show back on TLC.

Shameful Vanity! She has spent enough money on the hair on her head it could of paid for all 8 kids to send everyone of them to a small community college for their associates degree. Enough money on her, quote Milo, her rocking body for cosmetic surgeries to get their bachelors' degrees and enough money that has and will be paid at the private school to pay for their masters and each a nice car.

All for her rocking body.

LaLaLandNoMore said...

TFW is still wanting people (TLC mainly) to believe that it is okay for the 8 kids to financially support the family. No one in their right mind believes that this is okay. It is the parents' responsibility to support the children. There is no interest in TFW alone and she must know this. Still using the 8 little money makers to claim the limelight. TLC needs talent. They need more than the same old stories of people traveling, cleaning house, cooking, shopping for clothes and pets, and traveling some more. Same saga, different day. It is boring to watch. Reminds me of viewing slides from someone else's vacation. Can't even imagine watching a film of a yard sale, can you?

redbirdsings said...

TLC is crying like they are shocked and that THEY CARE, dabbing with a Kleenex and then turning around smiling like the Grinch and laughing all the way to the bank!

Wow. I have always thought when it was time to unveil the Mark of the Beast marks to the world that the public would easily accept it better if celebrities, sports people, famous people to have one and be spokespeople for it. I can just imagine several famous people in a photo shoot modeling their mark. Right there amongst them is TFW, smiling with those paid with debit veneers.

---------------------------------
Only priority? Not producing television shows? If they had said "top priority", I still would have called baloney, but "only priority" is so over the top I'm surprised they expect anyone to believe them. Or maybe they don't expect anyone to believe it, but want to say it anyway.

It's a wonder they don't topple over when they try to walk, due to their enlarged Pinocchio noses!

((((((

They had to know the whole wedding vow renewal was a sham. If people in the local community knew it, I don't believe that TLC had no knowledge of it. Word around town at that time was that the marriage was over long before they did the whole Hawaii fiasco, and before they signed on the new home. I remember our jaws dropping when they settled on that property.

))))

Kate has always had a turkey neck. I'm really surprised she didn't get that fixed along with her other plastic work. Her complexion has gotten worse over the years, and she seems to have outbreaks every so often. I remember a few years ago thinking that she really did have nice skin, but there are times when she has adult acne (and she really can't help that). But if Milo thinks she has a gorgeous complexion, then it's time that she takes a very up close and personal look at her. I think she'd be surprised. Then again, how much can you see while you're on your knees groveling at Kate's feet just to be in awe of finding yourself in her presence?

Native Of Lancaster County said...

So . . . is Jon back filming now with Kate and the kids?

Marie (164)

No, Marie. He's not. He was at the garage sale on Saturday. That's about it.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

TFW has had to have spent thousands on those extensions alone
over the years, and she has the chutzpah to crow about getting
bargain candy a day after Halloween? How about getting your kids
candy on the day of the holiday -- a holiday that comes only once
a year -- and cutting a few corners with your own expenses?

Don't hold your breath Ziggy. We're she to do this the tabs wouldn't be able to read her every tweet and she probably can't buy followers to make herself look popular. She could achieve the same thing by going private but she'll never do that because she'll lose her verified (check mark) status. Face it Ziggy, it's the haters and the bots that are keeping her timeline alive at this point.

Is that a scar on her neck in the picture?

PCOS can give you adult acne- Jon said she had one symptom of it according to RH??? Not re-starting the debate on if she actually has it; whatever the case she fooled the doctors and bought illegal hormones and acted irresponsibly for her 'dream'.

At this moment he's meeting with Rep. Murt and Paul Petersen. I kind of doubt he'll be filming anything with Kate and the kids again. Ever. lol.

What about the boob job? Does she see zero signs of that, too? LOL! Not only is that person blind, but a blind fool as well. Talk about being dumb. Geez.

Sleepless In Seattle said...

Why is the hair on the right side (tucked behind her ear) a different texture from the left side? It almost looks crimped. Is that the extension? I know nothing about these things...

*&****

Wow. Wow. Wow.

I believe every word of her story. It sounds very credible. I must have read hundreds of forensic exams by now and a lot of her descriptions sound very similar to other things I have read. She appears to be describing both anal and vaginal sex, touching, and him peeing on her (that could be ejaculation). DCFS was involved! This happened before Honey Boo Boo was born. They should have run June's child services history at the hospital when she was born and investigated the current circumstances.

Those poor girls. TLC? Eileen? Did you know about this?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Yep, and it did.

June, this police report is disturbing beyond belief. No one who truly loves their child would EVER let this sick man around them or any other child ever again. Shame on you.

" It wasn’t the right haircut for her so it took away from how pretty she is. Now you’re no longer distracted by the haircut. She definitely looks better. She looks a lot healthier.”

Who is this guy Wes Sharpton? Does he have any idea what kind of unhealthy lifestyle this woman leads?

&&&

The party in front business in back haircut was terrible, but remember what she had before that? It was just sort of a pixie cut, and her hair was on the reddish side. I thought she looked good with that, and would have looked better once her makeup got better and she lost 15 pounds. She should have kept that style.

I think her current style, the baby Jane cut whether curled or straight, is worse than the spiked one, IMO. As someone said it's like the Real Housewives long hair. Very few of them look good with that Rapunzel cut.

That's just a silly statement even if it were from someone who truly does care about children.

You're a for profit network. You're not PBS. You're here to make money. I would believe you a lot more if you admitted that a strong motivation of course is money. Even most of the sheeple admit TLC's priority is to make money.

I agree. She looked cute and young with the highlighted pixie. There are not many people who could pull off that cut and look really nice. Kate did it. Now she looks like every other bimbo on the block, the older woman who is trying to look like Peggy Lipton, thinking that long straight hair makes her look younger. It doesn't. All it does is pull down her face, which is not good when you have a long narrow face as Kate does. The Cowardly Lion was bad, but this Mod Squad look is worse.

I'm almost reluctant to say this, but I think she actually looked better with the porcupine/seagull nest on the top of her head than she does now.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Mod Squad lol.

I'm going to remember that for future recaps.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

&&&

Yes. That's when I innocently went in liking her, because I usually don't start out hating anyone contrary to the "hater" label. Her and the cute pixie haircut seemed like somebody I would like, and so I thought I would like her.

Yeah I read that one wrong.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...


What the sheeple just don't understand is that this forum is about laws protecting children on reality television. It has absolutely nothing to do with Jon's employment history, nor his partying with Hardy, nor his private divorce/visitation issues with Kate.

&&&

It's a classic case of intentionally confusing the issues, and it's a weak man's argument. It's what politicians do all the time.

It's irrelevant whatever Jon is up to or not up to. It doesn't have any bearing on whether or not Murt and Petersen have a point. But then that's a sheeple for you. Don't debate the issues. Just confuse them.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...


TLC definitely had a hand in destroying Jon and covering up any abuse Kate inflicted on the kids and dogs. 142

ABSOLUTELY. Amoral cesspool indeed.


&&&

I am going to get this quote wrong, but I remember when Kate was discussing divorcing Jon, the way she spoke out it, she spoke about it in a passive sense. In that not that *I* decided, but it was decided I would....etc.

I thought that was an extremely telling comment. It was decided by WHOM? I fully believe TLC was directly involved with that entire thing. That may not be as heinous as covering up sexual abuse, but it's up there. You're talking about going after someone's FATHER for no good reason other than it benefits you and your motivations and finances. It's sick. I think the damage done to the children's relationship with him could be permanent, and TLC is in part responsible.

Take the CA form for Jon to sign and to continue to film.

Get a free Hawaiian vacation with a fake vow renewal.

On and on and on.

redbirdsings said...

Wow. They showed June standing outside and Alana was nearby and paps were asking her questions and all she could do was stand there with a huge smug look on her face, her eyes barely open, mouth widely rounded open and say, The Truth Will Come Out.

Honey, IT ALREADY HAS, YOU FREAK!

Sleepless In Seattle said...

Yes! I remember that. Didn't she also say that the decision to divorce was made on a plane? I don't remember where she was going, but it definitely was en route to somewhere.

Not sure if this is what you're referring to, but I thought her best haircut was the one she got when she was staying with the Glassmans' after the tuck.

redbirdsings said...

If June was a real mother, when this hit that she was seeing the child rapist, and if she really, truly wasn't, she would be SO upset that people would be saying that she is even seeing a child rapist, right?

She should be angry that anyone would even accuse her of such a thing. But, that is not what is happening!

She acts SO blasé about it, like it is No. Big. Deal. Well, as someone elegantly put it here, she stood there like a Giant Blob.
