Dr. Glass has weighed in on Mama June's "truth video".http://drlillianglassbodylanguageblog.wordpress.com/
Ha ha! Reading Eagle posted that?#mine all mine!
I see Steve in the first photo with his head turned. Wonder where he spent the night? Surely not at the film crew's hotel, LOL.Now that Anna has come out, as reported by TMZ, that she was the 8 year old molested, I have to ask...when did TLC find out about Mama June dating the pedophile? Who leaked it and was this just TLC covering their butts? I truly believe TLC has stepped on it this time. Good time for Jon to come out publicly he does not want his kids exploited even if he has no power to stop Kate. He could certainly now express his concerns regarding TLC. Fathers have rights too.
Kate's bleary-eyed and her smile looks forced. Her hair is stringy and she looks like she just rolled out of bed. @XXXXXXXXXXXXXYard sales with Kate Gosselin.. http://instagram.com/p/uk9De-FEOB/Not the face K8 typically presents to media types. But then again, it's "just" one of the locals.
Steve must be there to escort Kate to the ladies room at the church hall, LOL. You never know how dangerous the locals can be!
Things sure look helter skelter, like they just threw stuff randomly at the tables. Like they didn't even try to organize it. I hate that kind of garage sale.

Things sure look helter skelter, like they just threw stuff randomly at the tables. Like they didn't even try to organize it. I hate that kind of garage sale.*********************************************************Just more of what we've come to expect from her, a half ass effort.
Look! Is that the dresser with the saggy drawers in the Reading Eagle picture? #CanDoKate #DIYforDollars
Did you see the tup boys in the background when it was so dark? A was rubbing his eye. But in the All Mine Money Wad, a boy tup, J or C was standing to the left and he was smiling!Maybe he had just heard his dad was coming to see them there! I WISH!
Just more of what we've come to expect from her, a half ass effort. &&&She is a classic case of middle management. She'll do just enough to make it happen, but she will NEVER do enough to have a shot in the dark at being CEO. Going above and beyond is not in her vocabulary. The strange thing is most other celebs have the sort of drive, stamina, and work ethic of the CEO. She is an anomaly in the world of Hollywood.
The Kurse of Kreider! I paid dearly for making fun of the Kate Salads posting on here. I had for dinner last night a fruit/salad plate that wasn't really all that good and I decided to bring it with me today. Guy was holding it and he dropped it and it went all over the floor! He was profusely apologizing and I said, it is ok, you have no idea! I felt bad for him. Just glad he didn't drop my coffee! I would of been M.A.D.! haha
Now that Anna has come out, as reported by TMZ, that she was the 8 year old molested, I have to ask...when did TLC find out about Mama June dating the pedophile? Who leaked it and was this just TLC covering their butts?******************************************************************I'm thinking the story was leaked, but TLC knew for sometime. June says she was told to keep it hush hush by TLC. Just like when jon and tfw were separated and living apart but TLC was still writing the narrative of their happy blissful unity.You get what you deserve, you sleep with dogs, you get fleas. That goes for anyone who sells their souls and their children's lives for fame and money.June is trash, but so were the gosselins.
Hmmm, sounds like when TLC "got wind" of Jon bar hopping with college girls, living over the garage etc. Everyone's the bad guy/fall guy in Booboo's case. Who are they going to make the good cop here?? With tfw, Jon was the fall guy, and tfw was more than willing to dig his grave."U.S. network TLC, which airs the reality show, apparently 'got wind' of the secret shopping trips.Taking into account other 'compelling evidence' and a photograph published by TMZ showing June and McDaniel in bed together, TLC took steps to cancel the reality show.Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2807269/Honey-Boo-Boo-shock-claim-Mama-June-s-adult-daughter-victim-child-molester.html#ixzz3HAOnd5mw Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
Ha, it's a #Thing! In yet another picture, Kate's got one arm around a fan, and the other one's reaching for the cash box.@XXXXXXXXXkateplusmy8 Thanks for the picture and for helping the ARL. Had fun at your… http://instagram.com/p/ulB_QfzMuY/
I wouldn't pay over 10 dollars for that dresser! How plain Jane can you get? 5 dollars would be a great deal for someone who really needed it. Where are the pulls for the drawers? kate does look bad. She looks like she hasn't had enough good sleep, good food in a long time. She looks several years over 40 now.I meant to say in the All Mine Money Wad PIC. Couldn't they have put a big plastic tarp on the ground and placed the sleeping bags on it and had more room for the things you put on tables. I think they were several tables too short. Somebody didn't get enough tables. Another example of her flying by the seat of her pants of getting things done the right way! She doesn't care about anything except the MONEY and putting her mug on tee-vee!
Getting back to the HBB saga for a minute. TMZ posted recent pictures of June, the kids, McDaniel and his son, when June was looking at houses. The daughter, Pumpkin, who denied that her mother was seeing McDaniel is in one of the pictures with McDaniel's son.http://www.tmz.com/2014/10/25/mama-june-house-hunting-boyfriend-child-molester-photos/From reading various articles, my understanding is that McDaniel did not go to prison for molesting Anna, but was found guilty of at a later time of molesting another child and that was the reason for his imprisonment.However, he was charged with molesting Anna, but when the case was brought up to a Grand Jury they didn't indict him. ROL has a copy of the charges sent to the Grand Jury, but at the top it shows that the Grand Jury voted "No Bill", which means that they didn't return an indictment, and that case was dismissed.Here is the Bill of Indictment given to the GJ regarding Anna which ROL posted. It's in PDF format.https://amradaronline.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/mark-mcdaniel_redacted_honeybooboo_story.pdf I really wonder how much TLC did know before this story came out. I wonder if this was the real reason Sugar Bear and June split--not because of Sugar Bear's supposed indiscretions.I wouldn't be surprised if TLC knew all about this and still planned on going on with the show. They probably even filmed the house hunting stuff. Now that the real story is out there, they doing damage control, not only by cancelling the show but by reaching out to Anna and the other children. They got caught with their pants down, and they are working frantically to cover their asses.
@dmi11475: kateplusmy8 Alicia with Kate Gosselin. Thanks for the picture and for helping the ARL. Had fun at your… http://instagram.com/p/ulB_QfzMuY/========She's still got a death grip on the cash. Someone needs to get her roots done.
The photographer/poster of the first photo confirms that it's being filmed. How dumb - filming a garage sale of a wealthy person who could just donate all that stuff and be done with it. But they have filmed back-to-school shopping, movie night, etc., so it's not surprising.
Another pic of Kate with a fan. Notice how she can't even put the cash down to take a picture.http://instagram.com/p/ulB_QfzMuY/#KashKeepingKate

Where are the pulls for the drawers? ========One of the boy tups pulled them off!Than you RBS...I'd been looking at that one picture trying to figure out what those things were on the table. Sleeping bags! You're right, they should be laid out on the ground so,people can get a better look at them.

Gee, for a person so organized, the money was just thrown in the cash box, things on the table were not very organized by item. So much for Kate organization skills. Nobody I know holds the cash or just dumps it in the cash box like that. I think she did that so it looks like they were making a lot of money. And yes Kate looks terrible. Must have been a long night with purseboy(snark).
I wouldn't pay more than 2 bucks for those drawers. I'd put them in the garage and put tools in them.
I wonder if Kate still charges $20 a photo or if the price has gone up on that too. Why is she trying to hide her boobs?
Thanks for the pictures from twitter. Looks like a typical yard sale except not as nicely organized as the typical one.
She finally let go of the cash in this pic:https://twitter.com/alainakocsis/status/526026626614956032/photo/1Vanessa--I don't think she has clip-ons in. It's just that the length and weight of her hair is making the top part look thinner.Hey, at least she's not wearing the BoPeep look today.

They probably even filmed the house hunting stuff. &&&&I think there's a good chance they knew. Like I said, they only are backpedaling now because they got CAUGHT. A quick background check would have brought up all that criminal history just like that. It costs 20 bucks to do. I find it hard to believe nobody ever sniffed around.Sadly, lots of true cases of child molestation get dismissed. Especially if you have a young child who is having difficulty articulating what happened. By the way, most forensic exams for child abuse are inconclusive unless they happen right afterward and they can collect sperm--which never happens. It is very difficult to tell whether someone has been molested or whether it's just the normal presentation of an active young girl or boy. And no forensic exam is going to tell you whether a child was fondled or the perp exposed themselves to them. Those things don't show up on an exam.
Tina said... 126TLC is all about making money off kids. They could care less if the kids are abused or molested._______Sadly I think you're right.
I once served on a Grand Jury, and our last case was about a grandfather who molested his granddaughter. Both the grandfather and granddaughter, who was 7, testified. It was heartbreaking to hear the child's testimony, but we believed her and brought an indictment.The grandfather kept saying how the girl was lying and that she mistook his hugging her, kissing her and showing his love for her as molestation. We all felt in our gut that he was the one lying.I don't know what the final outcome of that case was, but it really affected me having to hear that child tell her story.
AuntieAnn said... 30Why is she trying to hide her boobs?_________I bet someone told her to cover them up.
There are a lot of kids' clothes there. Looks like those are snowsuits rolled up on the table.Maybe Kate is trying to 'fit in' with her new persona as 'like any mom' that she has been tweeting as: roots showing, hair straightened but greasy,loose top with jeans, no earrings.But if she has a bad reputation among locals who would buy her stuff?She has said a lot of insulting things about the area, professionals and merchants etc.
It's really sad that TLC is letting this happen same with Lifetime with Abby Miller.But at the end of the day these are companies who want to make $$ it's the parent who need to be a fault.

She certainly looks greasy and unkept. I understand it's just a yard sale and princess had to be there before the rooster crowed, but big difference from a few years ago. Even at the height of her "fame", short hair, no makeup, "pre" cosmetic procedures and extensions she looked 100xs better. She did NOT de-age. Put that mess up in a bun/pontyail and put a little powder, lipgloss on. And yeah, what's with the baggy shirt?

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but, I think she still has the cash in her hand. Either it is rolled up in her fist there or she has it in her hand behind the girls back. She ain't gonna let cash get away from her. Ever. I want to see a pic of the Kate Salads, and her "homemade" baked goods! This yard sale could of been a great success if a little more planning would have occurred! ALR could of had a few dogs and cats there to be available for adoption. They could of even gotten a direct donation to them and bypass that "small portion control donation" kate babble.Popcorn, she has a machine. Does it take a rocket scientist?
Wish I lived closer. Would have loved to set up a small table out on the public street outside of the sale & displayed a few copies of Robert's book. Or strolled through the sale with a copy of the book in my hand...hehehe.
Not focusing on my disgust for HBB's mother for just a second, I am wondering if she may be just the person to cause a major meltdown at TLC. She knows all the ugly secrets about reality show production, including the manipulation and deceit, and probably more secrets we are not even aware of. Given the fact that she has already stated that TLC told her to be "hush hush" on the scandal, I have a feeling she would be willing to squeal like a pig about lots of things, CAs be damned. I have never seen the show, so maybe others can tell me if she seems like the type of person who won't go down without a fight. Does she seem like a person who would think that if she goes down, others will go with her?TLC couldn't possibly sue her for breach of contract for spilling their secrets because they would look even more shameful than they already do. I wouldn't be surprised if all manner of backroom negotiations (aka payoffs) started going on to secure June's silence.
It doesn't look like theres many people there....I mean from the few picture I've seen
Good article in Variety about the HBB mess and TLC.http://variety.com/2014/tv/columns/is-anybody-really-shocked-by-honey-boo-boo-pr-mess-1201338629/An excerpt:"But honestly, why should anyone be surprised? The main reason these shows exist, after all, beyond the budgetary considerations, is precisely because of the combustible aspects of casting such personalities. So it’s hard to feel particularly sorry for anyone — producers, networks, etc. — when their “stars” wind up going off script.In many reality shows, however, the whole conceit is often built around the players ostensibly being larger-than-life characters. Being outlandish isn’t what they do, but rather, who they are. And even if a show like “Duck Dynasty” or “Honey Boo Boo” is as scripted, in some respects, as any sitcom, these programs are marketed and derive what distinguishes them from those unorthodox qualities, thus creating a delicate line between generating attention and ratings and providing days worth of juicy fodder for TMZ.So without diminishing legitimate concern about the safety of children, it’s not mere cynicism to view TLC’s statement about canceling the show as a pretty good impersonation of the character in “Casablanca” who was shocked, shocked to discover gambling is going on, even as he accepts his winnings.Having rolled the dice — and won, strictly in commercial terms — with “Honey Boo Boo,” TLC officials are no doubt feeling various emotions about having to abruptly part ways with a hit, but surprise can’t be one of them. Because by now everyone tilling these fields has to realize the occasional PR mess associated with reality shows isn’t a shock; instead, it’s just a calculated cost of doing business."

Kate is a Twit, that is a great article. I think what it boils down to is that people who are going to give you problems are exactly the sort of people who are good reality show fodder. People like you and me would make for one boring reality show. But then we wouldn't be a "problem" for a network. It is only inevitable that some, even most of your reality t.v. "characters" are going to end up in one big hot mess. But that's the whole point, that's why they were cast in the first place.
@hashtag1dmom: @hashtag1dmom she was filming the sale maybe that's why people were there========It's confirmed that TLC was filming. However, based on the pictures that have been posted I don't see the thousands of people that radiogirl43 predicted would be there. If there were thousands (or even hundreds) you'd see many more people in the background of the pictures. TFW really doesn't look healthy. Her fans will blame it on the early hour but I'm more inclined to believe it's due to poor eating habits to keep the skeletal look that she's got.
Ha haBrianne :) @cinnamonsticker · 1m1 minute ago I just crashed Kate Gosselin's yard sale and in doing so consented to be on TLC and I look like a lumberjack and it was a crappy yard sale.
I was able to open the pics on this post.I have never seen such a disorganized mess at a yard sale or flea market.Who starts a yard sale in the dark?I agree, tfw does not look healthy.And again: where's the salad bar?
https://twitter.com/alainakocsis/status/526026626614956032/photo/1In the bottom left in the above picture, don't those containers with the reddish lids look like the ones she froze cookies in? And there are some white containers with lids that might be the salads? Not very many of them if it is.

I don't know why this link works, but I'm glad it does. http://tinyurl.com/nvh23htA few excerpts:"I am looking forward to the show airing," Gosselin said during a break in the filming at the sale she hosted at the St. John's (Hain's) United Church of Christ, 591 N. Church Road. "I love being here and seeing my old friends and meeting new friends."I love hosting yard sales. This is just such a great time."About 200 people lined up to meet the Gosselin family and search for bargains at 7 a.m. when the sale began.Gosselin said that she is donating the proceeds from the sale to the Animal Rescue of Berks County, Cumru Township."Gosselin was greeting all of the visitors and getting her photos taken with them. During the sale, the crews from Figure 8 Films, based in Carrboro, N.C., were filming.Her children -- the 10-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Leah, Joel, Alexis and Hannah and her 14-year-old twins, Mady and Cara -- were helping out with the sale and playing with guests on a playground.Gosselin said she was hosting the sale to sell clothing, toys, car seats and television sets from her home because she need more space."We had the sale because we were running out of storage in our home," Gosselin said. "We are in the middle of of a renovation project. I love doing yard sales."Collin said that he was so happy to help his mother with the sale, which also feature baked goods."I am meeting so many people and have so much fun playing with the other kids," he said. "This is so great.""I did not put a price on anything that we are a selling," she said. "The price is whatever people want to donate."Gosselin said that she will donate the leftover items to a local charity."I called it!! Whatever is left over will then be donated to charity. Rather than just donate to a charity in the first place, they had to use this sale not only as an excuse to film, but to show Kate as a charitable person.
Collin said that he was so happy to help his mother with the sale, which also feature baked goods."I am meeting so many people and have so much fun playing with the other kids," he said. "This is so great."&&&&I'm disappointed the kids are allowed to give interviews to the media. I also think that line sounds very scripted. He was told what to say. It's too adult, articulate and specific. Kids don't usually talk like that.
I can't stand anything karrashian, but reading that Kim will be paid $500,000 to celebrate her own birthday is jaw dropping.http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2014/10/kim-kardashian-birthday-tao-fee-keeping-up-kardashians-kanye-west/

"I love hosting yard sales"Catch that? Not "having" or "doing" but hosting.
I'm disappointed the kids are allowed to give interviews to the media. I also think that line sounds very scripted. He was told what to say. It's too adult, articulate and specific. Kids don't usually talk like that. ===============Of course, it's scripted---they were filming!! I'm sure Kate prepped those kids beforehand, giving out severe warnings that they had to put on a happy face and gush about the yard sale, or else.Especially, since it was Collin who was quoted. Hey, at least he got to play with other kids--that's probably what made him the happiest.
"seeing my old friends" What does that mean exactly? Be specific lady
Why on earth do they need home renovations ? Just because they 'can' thanks to TLC? It is annoying to see the idle rich get richer, not a premise for a 'family' reality show. But they've done it before, no why mess with success ? *snark* Wonder if again Kate will be 'exhausted-ish' and flee to a vacation spot while the work is being done?I agree Collin's line was scripted- I also thought his line on the birthday show "Who would want to whack Mommy?' was. I loved when Joel said his om goes back to bed after the kids go to school.I'm sure Mady is having "no fun things" today!
Vanessa said... 58 "seeing my old friends" What does that mean exactly? Be specific lady ===============She's probably referring to the TLC crew.
Bet it's just killing her to have to pose for pics with the mediocres. I hope she's squirming. Again, who are her "old friends"???why are they "old friends"?
When I've held yard sales I wore a fanny pack to keep the money in. I would never put it in a cash box in the open.
But TLC stinks, were you trying to prove to your h8ters that you ARE as famous and a draw as you think you are;)Now there's photographic proof!!
I really think the show will take off again like wildfire. The teens that remember the kids as cute babies now will identify with the bratty kid and teen thing. TLC will showcase all the drama and meltdowns again. This is gonna be a big hit.JR
Kate is a twit @60Ha! You are right, didnt think of that
When I've held yard sales I wore a fanny pack to keep the money in. I would never put it in a cash box in the open. 62That's because you think things through and prepare, while Katie ends up clutching cash in her fist.
I'm a long time reader and check in at this blog nearly every day. I am neither hater nor fan, and I've heard stories of Kate from my friends who work at Reading Hospital. Since I live in the area and had never experienced an actual Gosselin sighting, my sister-in-law and I decided to trek down to the yard sale today. ( We are also die hard yard salers! ) We got to the sale around 10:00; I didn't want to get into the mess I'm sure was there earlier. There were maybe around 100 people milling around or waiting in line. The tents were empty and there wasn't much left to buy. One thing that caught my eye was a little pink rubber bracelet from the Australia Zoo. Kate did not look anything like I expected, in fact she looked freakishly normal. Steve was hovering around here and there and the kids were running around on the playground. I think it was Mady? was sitting near her mother. There were signs posted around stating that Figure 8 was filming and if you didn't want to be on camera, stay out of the direction the cameras were pointed. You had to go through the line to pay and that's where Kate was standing. The food table was off to her side. She was talking and laughing with everyone and taking pictures. You just handed her whatever you wanted to pay and she put it in the cash box behind her. She laughed and joked with us and seemed genuinely nice. I am a very cynical person and expected to snark on her but she was really pleasant. I will say it was weird because clumps of people were standing around just talking and staring at her. I don't think I could ever get used to that, it must be very strange for the kids. I took some pictures and had one taken with her. I actually bought a couple things, and was hoping to find the infamous globe, but didn't see it!
The Reading Eagle is soooo weak. What are they afraid of? This yard sale is a freakin' joke. And I mentioned the other day too...where are the adoptable animals? What a wonderful opportunity. But, sadly, I think little money will be donated. She didn't need one single penny from this yard sale. Is the radio show broadcasting today about it?Obviously the male film crew threw her junk on tables. There is no way she lifted a finger except for filming. Just like she drove that RV. I think she wears her hair long because she thinks it makes her look younger. Sorry, Kate, it's not. And remember, Steve's wife wears her hair long. I suspect that's the look Uncle Steve likes. And I'm going to take a guess that Cara and Mady are terribly embarrassed.
"Gosselin said that she is donating the proceeds from the sale to the Animal Rescue of Berks County, Cumru Township."Oh is she now. Don't tell me she's been shamed into handing the whole wad over or is she lying to the Reading Eagle again. "I love doing yard sales" Katespeak decoded: "I love getting paid an exorbitant amount of money to pretend I love doing yard sales."
JR I think it's fair to say that possibility cannot be ruled out, that it will be a hit.But the teen market is FLOODED with programming, some of it halfway decent. It has to compete with all that for viewers. Plus I really don't think their market would appeal to the majority of teen boys, so there's half of teens gone right there.Here's the bottom line, I don't care how cute the kids are or how much the drama appeals to teens. At the end of the day the programming needs to be QUALITY to last. I think this will tap out under 2 million and after the novelty wears off be right back to the low millions and under, where it was last time.
What was the backup plan if it had been a rainy day? Did TLC have a truckload of tents ready to set up over the tables?
My guess she does not stray from that cash box. I cannot believe people are just paying whatever they want. The fun if a yard sale is the haggling.Thanks for the comments, EllaK. When she was laughing and yukking it up, were the cameras on her?
EllaK---thanks for your review of the yard sale and I am glad to hear that Kate was nice to everyone.My only thought would be would she have been just as nice if TLC had not been there filming?
She laughed and joked with us and seemed genuinely nice. ===="Seemed" is the operative word here. She's a cunning as a fox and knows how and when to turn on the charm. Do not kid yourself, mingling with the mediocres and playing nice with them is the hardest work she's ever done.
EllaK said... 67 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Thanks for your report. I hate to say that Kate was being 'nice' because they were filming, but others who have met her said she was snooty and standoffish and wanting to rush people through the book signings etc. But I respect your opinion and glad you had a good experience. Btw what did you buy??
Looking at the pictures posted at the top of the page, it looks to me as though she should be more appropriately part of TLC's hoarder show.bm
I agree, tfw does not look healthy----------Oh, my gosh. What is with that hair? It looks worse than it ever has, and she pays HOW MUCH to have that done? A five-year-old could do a better job chopping at that mess.
I am a very cynical person and expected to snark on her but she was really pleasant.****************************I would expect that because she's on camera. It would be interesting to see her conduct a yard sale without the camera.library lady (couldn't log in)
I am convinced that Steve and Kate are a couple. This man seems to never be at home with his wife and children. I mean come on, it's a Saturday and he can't spend the day at home. There are no other "bodyguards" that TLC employs that could do the job for just ONE day. She can deny it until the cows come home but I for one will never believe her.
Nobody I know holds the cash or just dumps it in the cash box like that. I think she did that so it looks like they were making a lot of money.---------We've always just thrown it into a cash box, but have a designated person to be in charge and never let it out of sight. But we're not nearly as organized as Kate professes to be!
EllaK, glad you went and reported back. I know you said she was pleasant, but we have to remember that she is doing this for the cameras. If kate wasn't haggling the prices for the items and just taking the money and tossing it into the cash box, then the line would have been going a lot faster. TLC MAY HAVE told kate, don't worry about the money from the yard sale, you keep it, and we will write out a check to the ARL, making them sign a CA to not say TLC's name is on the account. We will let you know the amount.
There's a table with books on it. I wonder if Nicole's book is among them!I guess Gladys was a no-show. Too bad. I'm sure Kate would have sent her personal driver to pick her up at the airport. There is a reason she refuses to meet Kate, even though she's had many opportunities, and she most likely never will come face to face with her true love. I just can't figure out why.
EllaK: What are the stories from your friends at the hospital, if you don't mind sharing? I'm curious because I have never heard/read one nice thing said about Kate from a 'mediocre' person when filming was not involved.
Today's "acting" gig by Katie Irene just may be what wins her that reality tv emmy!Mingling with such a large crowd of the hated mediocre had to be her best theatrical performance yet.
terri said...79In total agreement. Steve and kate have been a couple for years! If the guy that had his head turned was Steve, he looks like he has aged and gained weight. Mady looked pretty in the picture selling cookies.
I would never put it in a cash box in the open._____Yes but she has her rat claws there to protect her and her money.
She laughed and joked with us and seemed genuinely nice. 67Thank you sharing your experience. I'm glad it was positive.I agree with those who said she was acting for the cameras and as Auntie said, it wasn't easy for her.I wonder if TLC has her on a short leash. At least they are not funding her globetrotting. Not yet, anyway.
So funny! The code I had to type in just now was:unfitness ageonme hahaha!I said up thread that she looks like she hasn't had good sleep and good food in a long time. Let me add stress, mental issues and the dogpile will get bigger and bigger. I have thought for a very long time if something were to happen to kate, and believe me I don't want anything bad to happen to her because it would crush the kids! I have always thought that she and Steve have an arrangement for him to take over her affairs and something about the kids. I remember Jon had to fight a couple of years ago to get Steve's name off something that involved the kids, IIRC. Does anyone remember? Steve is one Svengali.
Kate is a twit said... 35I once served on a Grand Jury,**********Thank you for sharing your story. That must have affected you profoundly.FWIW, I think you did the right thing.
Rhymes with Witch said... 50I was able to open the pics on this post.I have never seen such a disorganized mess at a yard sale or flea market.Who starts a yard sale in the dark?I agree, tfw does not look healthy.And again: where's the salad bar?*******You can't believe the early birds that come to yard sales! But, I get your point. It's not necessary to start the yard sale at 7. Sunrise was 7:20 today.But, hey, I bet dollars to donuts it's for filming."look at Kite, how early she rises... she's working hard before the break of dawn..."Hey, locals!!Anyone ever go or still go to Rice's Market in Lahaska?I remember going there with my flashlight!!
I remember Jon had to fight a couple of years ago to get Steve's name off something that involved the kids, IIRC. Does anyone remember? 88I recall it has something to do with Steve being named a trustee for them or something like that.
When she was talking to us, the cameras weren't really on us at all. There was a Mom and her son, who was about 10, ahead of us and he got his picture taken and was talking to her. The cameras seemed to really focus in on him. I think the line was taking long because she was talking to everyone and taking the pictures if you wanted to do so. There were times the camera crew wasn't filming, they were just standing around having coffee and stuff. I did see one young guy on the camera crew reach out and affectionately ruffle the hair of one of the tup boys as he ran by to the playground. That was nice.I bought a book for my niece, some ski carry thing for my sister-in-law and a Peace Love World silk scarf.The stories from my friends who worked at the hospital weren't good, she was apparently not a pleasant person to work with...I also have friends who have met and spent time with Jon, and they report that he is a really nice guy. This is all second hand, I've never met either of them until today.She may have acted differently if the cameras weren't there. I will say I didn't see anything at all mentioning the Animal Rescue group. I don't know if they had been there and left already since I only got there at 10? But there were no signs or anything..There was no cash box there when I was there, they were using a Tupperware container.She lucked out and had a beautiful fall day! My sister-in-law knows nothing about Kate, but she commented that Steve was cute!
I believe she was on her best behavior. Moat abusive narcissistic mothers are when need be. That's one thing I always hate is when people said and still say " your mom is sooooo nice"They can put on the charm at the drop of a hat. Even men who abuse their wives? How many friends, neighbors afterwards say " golly gee, he was always so nice!" Sheep in wolves clothes as they say. Sociopaths
Steve is one Svengali. 88She has been trying to minimize/eliminate Jon from their lives for years. Steve has been the one person she hasn't eliminated. They are either a couple or he stays for the money. IDK.
EllaK said... 67 I will say it was weird because clumps of people were standing around just talking and staring at her. I don't think I could ever get used to that, it must be very strange for the kids.====Kate loves the attention, she thrives on it but it has to be so awkward for them to be gawked at all the time. She could have held this sale with all her 'friends' and left them out of it, but they were billed as the added sideshow attraction at this circus so they had no choice. The show is their life and their life is the show for as long as she can milk it. Too bad you didn't mention this blog. If you had, you would have gotten the old stink eye from Kate and you might have gotten yourself personally escorted out of there by Ratclaws. lol
Kate's hairline has seriously "busted edges" (meaning, it's receding & looks chewed along the edges)---most typically the result of deferred maintenance, especially if you're overusing weaves/extensions. Maybe also poor nutrition.
C'mon Robert and sue buddy!.... Time to weight in on the "not a garage sale to benefit me" event....clearly a "rare" gosselin event! Lol
Kate please get a shot hair cut. You look gross in long hair like a witch yuck.
That looks like a bowl of ® Kate'sSalad © sitting on top of that woman's pile of things. http://readingeagle.com/storyimage/RE/20141025/NEWS/141029913/EP/1/1/EP-141029913.jpg

laura @adidasqt6 21m21 minutes ago@Kateplusmy8 cant believe how sweet u are kate, people judge u without knowing the real u! So happy I finally got to meet u!So this person "knows" the real Kate because she had her picture taken with her. What did she expect? That Kate was going to be mean and miserable and rude to everyone there when they were being filmed? People are so darn gullible that it's not even funny.
I had a feeling the Mama June's relative that was molested was her daughter. That poor girl!
Taco Charnigo @LawnGnomez 4h4 hours ago"Really, the kids were having a good time outside their compound" - mother, referring to Kate Gosselin's children
Hi. I read here but don't post often, maybe twice a year. I was at the sell with my daughter and kids. Jon was there on the playground with 2 boys and 3 girls. I am not sure which boy was not in the group. There were other kids playing as well. Jon was running around playing maybe tag. They looked happy and at ease.I did not see an adult with them other than Jon.My daughter purchased size 6/8 girls clothes and some very nice junior size 4/6 clothing. Abercrombie, Lucky, Aero, Hollister, Old Navy, LL bean, Lands End, Crazy 8 and Gap.I bought a food processor, blender, cookie sheets and a plastic pitcher.My daughter gave $30 and I gave $35. There really was no haggling at all.Carla took my money and Kate took my daughter's. I did not see the older girls.Steve was sitting in a blue fold up chair behind Kate and had sunglasses on. He had a coffee mug in the cup holder.Kate said thank you. Carla said looks like you got some good stuff.After we got through the line and were walking behind Kate's area, Steve got up and walked over to the playground and told the kids his mother wanted them to come back now. Jon told Steve and I quote, "you do not tell my kids what to do". Steve just walked away. We watched for about 10 minutes but the kids stayed and we left with our great deals.No one was being ugly to Kate and the kids were left alone.There was so much stuff to look through. It was unorganized but if you were willing to dig through stuff it was worth it. There were bikes, motorized cars, sleds, duplos, books and dvd's galore. If we had a bigger car and more money we would have bought more things.Native Pa Lady
If TLC knew about the Mama June mess for awhile, then it explains why they are ramping up TFW. They can just slot her right in.
localyocul, TMZ has photo's of JUne house hunting with the molester. June got caught in a big lie.
EllaK: Thanks for the details.Sounds about right- pleasant in public, a horror to work with, crew pretending to care abut the kids ( or maybe they are nice, but strangers, still), dressed 'down' to appear like a regular mom, Jon a decent guy....your purchases sound nice. Hope some $ makes its way to the animal rescue.Thanks for your objective comments.
Looks like someone has their extensions in again, now that she's back filming! Unbelievable and no I'm not jealous, incredulous, but not jealous. Those poor children, will they ever have any privacy?Now to Honey Boo Boo, TLC knew exactly what this family was when they signed them on. Much like most reality TV programs, don't look to closely or behind the curtain ... that's where the skeletons are. I read stories back when the show was beginning and their family history was being reported. Each of her children from different fathers, crap happens, okay, to each their own. Each father, at least those where she knows who the father is, also has a criminal record from theft to a registered sex offender. Now it's found out a former boyfriend, molested her child, was convicted for molesting another child and she's dating him again. REALLY!?! June herself has a criminal record for I believe passing bad cheques. Many have given her a pass as she set up trust funds for each of her children and says that all the money is split equally among them, like that should make exploiting her children better. We shall see ... however, the fact is she is no better than Kate and any other family that offers up their child's childhood for public fodder. TLC is directly complicit with what I'm afraid may be the downfall of many of these children. Some, certainly in the case of the Boo Boos may have had issues anyway, but being on TV and in the public eye certainly won't negate those, rather will, I fear magnify them. TLC is now trying to close the door after the horse has escaped, but I certainly hope they will be held accountable, although they seem to have escaped any with Bill Blankenship!

Native Pa Lady said... 104 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Are you talking about today's sale?? JON was there? Carla? Did I miss something?Ha! I thought they didn't "do" designers?
Okay, this is almost hard to write. I have been reading here for years, but rarely post. Thought I would go "take one for the team" as I only live about 30 minutes away. I have enjoyed being the wallflower on the veranda, just listening in. So, I figured I owe you all one!I headed over this morning, arriving a bit before noon. First thing I noticed was a police car parked on the sale side of the road, with parking across from the sale. Paparazzi were hanging out in the parking lot, and some people were taking pics from their cars. As I walked towards the road to cross there was a sign saying that filming was taking place & if you did not agree to be filmed then to stay out of the camera range. I crossed the street to the sale, or what was left of it. The tables were already bare, except for some very outdated printers, a few torn books, some pizza screens, and some other random items not worth looking at. There were a few people looking, but all of the real action was taking place over on the playground. I turned to look & almost bumped into Steve. I said "Hi", he said "Hi" back. He was taller than I expected (I'm 5'10" and he seemed about the same).Then I spotted her. I was determined to at least say "Hello". I was just about there when an elderly couple approached her at the same time. Kate screeched (yup, it really is a thing) and threw her arms around the gentleman's neck. She gushed her happiness at seeing him, and then the lady. She then pointed excitedly at the playground & said "the kids are over there" and led them over to greet the children. She talked to the couple for about 30 minutes. I did not take pics of her with them, nor would I ever dream of taking pics of the kids. Not everyone had those manners, as most people were pulling out their phones to snap pics of the kids as they happily played on the playground. Two of the boy tups called over to get her attention to look at their antics. There seemed to be several adults around them and playing with them on the see-saw and spinning them on the merry-go-round. One man was even pushing one of the girl tups on a swing. Not sure who one man was but couldn't have been too close to them if he had to ask if Collin's name was pronounced "Coll-in" or like "Colon". (Part 1)
I'm glad Jon was with his kids today. I wonder if TLC will show him playing with the kids? a guy on the radio station comments said he knows Jon and said Jon and Kate get along now who knows???. Kate would have had to invite Jon to the yard sale if he was with the kids..
(Part 2)Anyhoo, I finally got a chance to approach Kate. I said hello and asked if I might get a picture with her. She could not have been kinder, and said "Yes, but please no pics of the kids". Naturally that was fine by me! We took a pic & she made a comment about being sorry that there was not much left when we got there. I told her it was fine, but might I make a cash $ donation to the animal league. She said that they were all packed up & getting ready to leave, and not to worry about it. She also mentioned the couple who had just left explaining that they were old friends that she had not seen in some time, and that she had seen many old friends that day and she was very happy. As we were talking a couple of the tups came up for hugs. No cameras were in sight the entire time I was present.I must say that I witnessed her being kind and gracious the hour I was there. She looked pretty normal, like a mom having a yard sale. No heavy makeup. Mom clothes on with a light jacket over top. Pretty much how anyone would dress for a chilly fall day - it was 63 degrees and sunny at noon.The kids were playing nicely amongst themselves and any kids that joined in. I think one of the twins was there, someone called out to her & she barely glanced over with a weak smile. I could be wrong, but I think it was Cara. I felt bad for her. At that point they were breaking down all the tables & packing it up. Kate then turned her attention to gathering the kids up & into the BBB. So, that was my brush with reality fame. I know it was not exciting, but I just report it as I see it. I cannot say whether this is Kate's "normal" or not, but today she was in good spirits. That said, I hope that the animals benefit from this day. Please don't ban me from the veranda!
Native Pa Lady said... 104 -----Hi Native Pa Lady - Thanks for the candid post!
That's Mady is the Muskoka hoodie. She looks the same to me,maybe gained a little weight ( not in a bad way; she was always slight)
Native Pa Lady...104 Good for Jon!
Okay, I just had to prove I wasn't a robot. Weird.
Oh- Muskoka is in Northern Ontario- I wonder if the family was ever there or the hoodie Mady had on was a gift? Hmm
Well I'm glad to hear that she was being nice to everyone. Maybe she could head over to Giant and apologize to the checkout girl while she's still in a good mood. Snark. Nice to hear some tups ran over for a hug, although I can't imgaine my dd having done that in 5th grade which she was in at their age. She was a very affectionate and loving little one but by then I don't think she would have done that.
Hooray for Jon telling Steve to basically back off from telling his kids what to do!I'm sure Kate felt Jon had spent too much allotted time with them.
Formerly Duped said... 121 Oh- Muskoka is in Northern Ontario- I wonder if the family was ever there or the hoodie Mady had on was a gift? Hmm -------The twins just had a birthday, so it may have been a gift from a Canadian fan. Who knows?Glad to hear that Jon was there today. Good for him!
Winsomeone said... 51 I thought of her big baking spree that was supposedly for the kids for months to come. Obviously they were for this bake sale.
Thank you Native Pa Lady, EllaK and TookOne for your reporting. Who suggested the Emmy going to Kate? PatK? I totally agree. She must have rehearsed that nicey nice role for a month before the actual performance. No one will ever convince me that freon refrigerant doesn't run through her veins.I'm glad Jon was there to see his kids while Kate-the-Phony frolicked with the crowd and Steve-the-marriage-wrecker played cop.
I don't think even TMZ realizes it, but Alana (Honey Boo Boo) is in the picture on TMZ standing at the door of the house!!! Is he allowed to be that close to minors? I would think it would be part of his sentence/probation to stay away from minors.
I doubt (sorry) it was Jon with the kids or that he and Kate are civil. also, that Carla is in the picture. I may be wrong, but sounds weird, more like the previous yard sale.
The kids all left with Jon. ALL.
Well maybe Kate does have some acting ability. She acted like a nice person at her sale (all for the TLC pay check) She dressed the part of an every day mediocre mom to act like she is not the slutty witch she has been. She's realized that her witchy snooty ways hurt her continuing filming and is trying to make it look good now to get the viewers back. I bet Jon being there was only part of the ploy too.
What a hard working mom Kate is. Not. Guess who loaded up the unsold stuff and tables? Volunteers from the church. 2 guesses how I know.
Thanks to all.who went for reporting.Glad Jon got to spend fun time with his kids and told Steve to.stuff it.I still.wonder if TLC put their foot down and said we'll film but you (tfw) need to cooperate with our plan.
Jon was there playing with his kids having a great time. We watched him for quite a while. He was running around. Kids were chasing him. He was on the ground for awhile tickling 2 of the girls. Some other kids that were not the G kids joined in and he was playing with all of them. I saw Steve come over too. It was such an odd thing to witness. Steve didn't yell but his voice sounded authoritative, if that makes sense. Like maybe that's how he speaks to them all the time. But Jon quickly answered back. He was firm yet not hostile, if that makes sense. The kids didn't listen to Steve. They listened to Jon. There were lots of people around watching the kids and it was strange to see. I mean, I was one too. they are a spectacle.Cara was with Mady selling cookies but she was sitting on a blanket on her phone. She didn't make eye contact with anyone when I saw her. Mady was funny when a little kid went through and didn't have any money. The kid was 4 or 5. She said just take what you want and be gone! I LOL at that.Stalker for today
She's realized that her witchy snooty ways hurt her continuing filming and is trying to make it look good now to get the viewers back. I bet Jon being there was only part of the ploy tooSorry but I have to disagree. I think many tuned in to see her melt down and act like a bitch. I don't think there's much of an audience for "nice and normal" (you see how long Table for 12 lasted). I'm glad that she was being nice to people and I'm glad that Jon was there. I'm sure that she's civil to him but if they were really getting along she'd probably put a stop to the Jon bashing on her timeline. OK, so we've got vacation, back to school, twins' birthday/remodel, yard sale and that makes 4. If there are going to be 5 episodes we can probably look forward to Thanksgiving.
Well, it must have been a bitter pill for Jon if he was there, to see his kids filmed and Kate earning money from TLC, while he is out of a home and job. I wonder if he was hassled about the kitten or anything by Kate's fans and 'old friends?' Thanks to all who reported !
The RE added a few more pictures. Some of the links were changed from what I had in my post#55. This one is new although I had this link posted before. This one shows the cameras filming: http://readingeagle.com/storyimage/RE/20141025/NEWS/141029913/EP/1/3/EP-141029913.jpgI think they changed the link on this one which is what the previous link showed earlier.http://readingeagle.com/storyimage/RE/20141025/NEWS/141029913/EP/1/4/EP-141029913.jpgAnyway, again--here is the link to the whole article with the picture slide show:http://tinyurl.com/nvh23htRight now, there is a total of 8 pictures.
NJGal51 said... 132 --I think that is what I meant. It is all a fake act to film again. TLC may have told her to change before they would do more episodes. I don't believe deep down inside she has changed. It will be a boring show without her nastiness, drill sergeant rules, meltdowns.
Thanks to those who are sharing their first person accounts of today. On the plus side, Kate gives lip service to not exploiting her kids, and didn't allow pics of them (though they were there and fair game, such is their life) and the kids got a morning outside in beautiful fall air playing with their dad and other kids. A lot of people in the community got the opportunity to purchase great items for just a little money. The animal shelter got $ donated to them. Whether it was 10% or 100% of the profits, it was money they didn't have yesterday, and didn't have to lift a finger for. And people came away with a positive experience. I actually found Jon's "don't tell my kids what to do" childish. Clearly Steve was send by their mother or production to gather them for either leaving, cleaning, something that their mother wanted. Steve, regardless of what else he is, has been a presense in the kids' lives for 9 years, and has taken care of the family enough to have the right to gather the kids. I'm sure the production company often told the kids what to do - did Jon get churlish at them also? Teachers tell them what to do. Back when Liz was with Jon I'm sure she told the kids what to do. Putting the kids in the middle of two adults (should the kids have listened to Steve and prepared to go, thus upsetting their dad?) is horrible, regardless of who does it. Jon really does need to grow up.
I think it's hypocritical of Kate to say please, no pictures of the kids. While of course I would agree, you bet she would allow them if she got paid $20 a pop, and anyway, TLC was filming the children and the Reading Eagle was giving her publicity with some of the kids in photos This whole comeback of Kate is making me angry- I had hopes of her shriveling away underneath the McMansion ( now re-re-renovated!) like the Wicked Witch in Wizard of Oz.The kids sound ok with it from the reports on here.(except Cara?)
Kate tweeted after the yard sale and actually said thank you.Kate Gosselin @Kateplusmy8 · 3h3 hours ago We had a memory filled X at r yardsale! Met hundreds of THE nicest ppl &saw many old friends 2! PLUS raised tons of $ for ARL Berks CountyKate Gosselin @Kateplusmy8 · 3h3 hours ago Thank you ALL 4 coming out to meet us! My kids had fun w ur kids on playground! And thx 2 for your generous donations to ARL Berks County!
It sounds as if TLC & Kate are trying to paint Kate in a different light. The kind, nice, loving caring Kate we all know is an act. And now she is donating all the money to the animal shelter. After all she is making $40,000 an episode.We all know it's cause of filming. I also think the way she looks is to give the impression, she worked soooo hard getting the yard sale together, when we all know it is another act, and TLC had people take care of that. I am happy that Jon was there and told purseboy to MYOB. I think why Jon was there is: 1. Kate/TLC is trying to make it look as if Kate is turning over a new leaf, and trying to get along with Jon, or 2. it is Jons weekend, 3. TLC is trying to make Kate a caring person, and feeling sorry for Jon , cause he was evicted recently. TLC it won't work. Kate, good try in the acting department, you don't fool the rest of us. So, it sounds like Kate got rid of all the freebees she has receivced over the years , and has done some major construction. I notice in the article about 3 times Kate said I love hosting yard sales. What is this the 2nd or 3rd yard sale she has had in 10+ years. Is this going to be another of those traditions that was only done once or twice and forgotten, like the rest? BIG WHOOP!
I actually found Jon's "don't tell my kids what to do" childish. Clearly Steve was send by their mother or production to gather them for either leaving, cleaning, something that their mother wanted. Steve, regardless of what else he is, has been a presense in the kids' lives for 9 years, and has taken care of the family enough to have the right to gather the kids. 888888888888888888888888888Sorry, Jeremy, I'm going to respectfully disagree. I have a funny feeling it was Jon's weekend for custody and the only way to film was to get him on board. There is no other way he would have been allowed anywhere near the place if this wasn't the case. If it was Jon's custody, good old Steve can take a flying you-know-what. I have a HUGE problem with step-anythings disciplining children that aren't theirs. I know this wasn't discipline, but all the same, you don't order kids around when they are with their father. Especially when you are part of the reason he no longer sees his children on a daily basis. As you can tell, this is a hot button for me.PJ
Kate had named Steve trustee.Narcissists can be charming when they need to be. No one can convince me she has changed. Must be medication she's on, LOL, because if TLC wanted fireworks, apparently it did not happen.Steve is a jerk. No doubt they are a couple, glad Jon told him to buzz off.
Kate is not broke.. Karma Mama Drama @KarmaMamaDrama 1h1 hour ago@PRFANS @Kateplusmy8 @TLC I'm curious as 2 why would Kate claim dire straits &she's probably receiving pay now & film yard sale? #Bamboozled
P.S. Jeremy, Jon didn't put the kids in the middle of two adults, Steve did. He should have approached and spoke to Jon, not the kids. And no teacher I know would try to usurp a parent's rights. We have absolutely no proof that Liz told the kids what to do whether their father was present or not.PJPJ
Jeremy...136 Sorry, don't agree. If TCFW or the production crew wanted the kids, they should've gone and got them. Doesn't sound like anyone went to get them after Steve walked away. And I don't think Jon giving his opinion to Steve when Jon is with his own kids, is childish.
I wonder how TLC will spin the day into entertainment? It was just a yard sale and not very exciting.
Putting the kids in the middle of two adults (should the kids have listened to Steve and prepared to go, thus upsetting their dad?) is horrible, regardless of who does it. &&&&&&&&Yep, it wasn't very nice of Kate to send Steve over there when the kids were with their dad.
I have to disagree with Jeremy also. TFW denies anything but a working relationship with Steve. For all intents and purposes, Steve is the hired help. Jon is their father. Father trumps hired help. Was this Steve's attempt to show that his dick is bigger? Who knows but I'm glad that Jon called him on it and that Steve walked away.
Jeremy said...136No, no, no, no, no! I am proud of Jon telling Steve that he couldn't tell his kids what to do!!! Jon is their FATHER! It doesn't matter how long Steve the Shacker Upper has been shacking up with kate. It may have been Jon's weekend, idk, but I think it was great that Jon did speak up!Steve is not their father, or their step-father. Jon is.
Also the poster that said she wanted to make a cash donation at the end of the yard sale, kate said, aw, don't worry about it. Why would she turn down money that she was raising for the Animal Rescue League? I couldn't believe she said that.
Jeremy: your wrong. Jon is family, and for all we don't know is that, this might be Jon's weekend with his kids. Purseboy is there for security, therefore he is an employee, not a member of the family, he is not Kates boyfriend, he is an employee. Jon had every right to tell him to buggar off. And that is not childish. If Kate wanted the kids for filming, she should have went over there and got the kids herself, and as a person here said, after, Jon told him to buggar off, no further actions were taken. Since, Kate needed the kids for filming this weekend, I take it to mean that this is Jon's weekend, with the kids, the 2 of them must have come to an agreement.
I think that is what I meant. It is all a fake act to film again. TLC may have told her to change before they would do more episodes. I don't believe deep down inside she has changed. It will be a boring show without her nastiness, drill sergeant rules, meltdowns. 134I agree that she hasn't changed. I think the show is boring, meltdowns or not, but I'm glad there weren't any.And yes, Steve should have spoken to Jon, not the kids.
NJGal51 said... 147 Jon is their father. Father trumps hired help. Was this Steve's attempt to show that his dick is bigger? Who knows but I'm glad that Jon called him on it and that Steve walked away. ====Yes lol! That's exactly what that A hole was doing. And shame on Kate for sending him to fetch the kids back. Why couldn't she call them? I'll tell you why, she'd have to drop the nice-girl act right then and there because she hates Jon more than she loves her kids. She sent her guard dog to do it for her. I'm glad he had to walk away with his tail between his legs. His little tail.

OMG. Kate is such a phony! No words except hope her show is a major flop. #Kateisananimalabuser
Steve knew had no choice but to walk away, since he has NO authority over those kids. What was he gonna do? Call the police? LOL
I bet it was Jon 's weekend. She's a bitch.
AuntieAnn, one more metaphor and you're going to have to sitin the naughty spot. But I beg of you to write, as TFW famouslystated about her baby aspirations, "just one more!"If TFW had been filmed donating a kidney today, it wouldn't changemy opinion of her. Just like we say if her mouth is moving, she'slying? Well, if the camera is rolling, she's being a phony. Shewas wearing a "mom" costume today, playing a part. Dresseddown, casual, no Hollywood glam or hooker heels. Just aneighborhood gal, seeing friends old and new. Cue the themesong and the montage. Puh-leeze. She couldn't play "piecingand patching" wearing a designer dress, now, could she?If some day someone spots her at Olive Garden picking her kids up herself after a weekend with their father, I'll start thinking about giving her some credit. Of all the lousy ways she's behaved, suingthe father of her children was about as diabolical an act as she'sever done. Heifer's gonna have to go a long way to make meforget that.
I totally agree with Jon telling Skeeve to buzz off. He has no jurisdiction over those kids. He is not the father, not the relative and not a legal guardian. They are Jon and Kate's children. If she needed them she could have gone over and retrieved them. Finally, Jon has grown a pair. This is a start. Baby steps....
I hope it's true that Jon was at the sale and have a feeling he was. With all the cell phone cameras around, it sure would be good to see a photo of him there.
lol Flimsy. I think I've already been banned to the riff raff section for cheering on Jon. Wait. Make that "Saint Jon" - just to push the envelope.
I hit publish too soon. TFMJG's twit about the "cat" -- does she realize that she just proved herself a liar. She keeps saying the kids don't see Jon. If they don't see him, how did they become attached to the cat? If, indeed, there is a cat?
I can just hear what Kate whispered into Steve's ear. Go get the kids, it sounds like they're having too much fun over there with my ex-sperm donor. They're here to work, damn it. Go fetch, Steve. DO IT NOW!Steve: whatevah
Readerlady (#161), I said the same thing the other day! If TFW claims she is with the kids "99% of the time," that 1% they're withtheir dad is an awfully narrow sliver during which to fall in love witha cat. As someone said on the previous thread, TFW gets a bitcocky when she's filming, like she's got the world on a string. And that's when she tends to babble on and on and get herselfin trouble. And as cunning as she is, she doesn't really have the brain power to keep all her lies straight.
Gotta be honest -- I'm not sure I believe Jon was there. No offenseto any commenters. I've just been taken on too many wild ridesin this story.
Steve knew had no choice but to walk away, since he has NO authority over those kids. What was he gonna do? Call the police? LOL==================I remember on the plane trip to Utah, Steve grabbed the arm of one of the girls. I think it was Mady, but I'm not sure. She wrestled herself free and kept walking."She sent her guard dog to do it for her. I'm glad he had to walk away with his tail between his legs. His little tail."===================I wonder how often he wags it, and for whom."I doubt (sorry) it was Jon with the kids or that he and Kate are civil. also, that Carla is in the picture. I may be wrong, but sounds weird, more like the previous yard sale."===================Are you saying that Jon wasn't there, and those who attended and said that Jon played with his children were mistaken? I'm confused. Was he there or not?
getofftwitter said... 150Jeremy: your wrong. Jon is family, and for all we don't know is that, this might be Jon's weekend with his kids. Purseboy is there for security, therefore he is an employee, not a member of the family, he is not Kates boyfriend, he is an employee. Jon had every right to tell him to buggar off. And that is not childish. If Kate wanted the kids for filming, she should have went over there and got the kids herself, and as a person here said, after, Jon told him to buggar off, no further actions were taken. Since, Kate needed the kids for filming this weekend, I take it to mean that this is Jon's weekend, with the kids, the 2 of them must have come to an agreement.------------------------------------------I agree. Jon is the Father and has every right to say NO to Steve. And I too believe that it was Jon's weekend with HIS kids and Kate/TLC needed to agree to let Jon come in order to FILM and make the kids WORK.I also think that Kate was getting upset that while she had to put on a FAKE smile and act friendly to all the mediocre fans the kids were having FUN with Jon. So Kate got upset that the kids were not working and HELPING HER so she sent Steve over to get them and Jon said NO. So good for Jon that he made sure his kids did not have to WORK all day and could PLAY and have FUN.
TLC stinks said... 72My guess she does not stray from that cash box. I cannot believe people are just paying whatever they want. The fun if a yard sale is the haggling.______________________________She didn't need to haggle. Everything she made was 100% profit.

We all know Kate HATES Jon more than she loves her kids. She proved it again this week with her tweet about Jon and how he "abandoned" the kitten. That was a HORRIBLE thing to tweet and fuel the fire of all the negative press on Jon this week. Kate loves to kick Jon when he is down. There is no way that Kate has come around and mended things with Jon. I really believe he was ONLY there because he said it's ME or NO KIDS to Kate/TLC.And it must have been making Kate so angry to see Jon there playing with the kids, having fun, and the kids loving every minute of it while she had to make nice nice to the icky mediocre fans.
She didn't need to haggle. Everything she made was 100% profit.-------------------------She made no profit if she donated everything to charity, as reported.
And it must have been making Kate so angry to see Jon there playing with the kids, having fun, and the kids loving every minute of it while she had to make nice nice to the icky mediocre fans. 168I agree. More importantly, the kids had fun.
Am I the only one to think it's funny that "tons of $" was raised (now that the proceeds appear to be for the ARL) when just the other day she said yard sales "are not $ makers" (that of course was when a "portion" was described as being "donated").bm

I think everything that comes out of her mouth is funny, in a lying sort of way.PJ
I wonder what TFW will say on the couch when they show Jon showing up at the Katie of Sunnybrook Farms Yard Sale and going up to the kids! She will dab dab be reflective and they will show Jon playing with the kids and other kids! They will flashback when they were little and sniff sniff and then go back to Jon playing with the kids and having a ball.Yes, I believe she was starting to fume because she couldn't explode before the public and cameras, because remember when she stopped the pumpkin carving and how bad she went off? She couldn't stand it when Jon had them all sat down and he was carving their pumpkins and they were patiently waiting for THEIR DADDY to carve their pumpkin. She couldn't take it! She has a mental problem. This is constantly, every time Jon is around the kids, she throws monkey wrenches into everything he does with the kids to stop them and have control over them.She was getting mad because she had no control over the situation and thought that Jon would just melt under Steve's command and I am so proud of Jon to tell him that he was not going to tell his kids what to do!Jon has officially passed on the Stubby Award to Steve now and LONG MAY Stubby Steve REIGN!

We have to be careful here not to get into Rob Ford (mayor of Toronto) territory. He couldn't comment on a video because he hasn't seen it and it doesn't exist. When the video surfaced, exactly as described, he said he didn't remember smoking crack because he did it in one of his drunken stupors!
FlimsyFlamsy said... 164''Gotta be honest -- I'm not sure I believe Jon was there. No offense to any commenters. I've just been taken on too many wild rides in this story.''~~~~~~~~~~~I don't know why you've made up your mind that Jon wasn't there. How can you not offend those who WERE there and commented? Why on earth would those people lie? I join the ones who believe that Jon WAS there, playing with his children while the yard sale went on elsewhere. AND I got a real kick out of a bystander overhearing Jon telling TFMJG's employee to not tell his children what to do. Poor ole ''bodyguard'' had to go kick rocks without Jon's children!I also have a lot of respect for those who commented here about seeing Jon and his kids and did NOT take photos of them!
Kate had a yard sale and was pleasant while doing so because she was being filmed. That's it, nothing more. The kid's were there because thats what people want to see....the kids. As for no pictures of the kids? Turning a new leaf? PLEASE. The kids were being filmed by TLC so Kate could get a pay check. Again, this was all for show and a pay check.Kate is Kate and she is never going to change as long as she gets people to watch and has a camera crew with her.TLC cancelled HBB, Yet they film a Child and Animal abuser. As long as people are watching they are going to cash in as much as they can.
The yard sale started at 7am because almost every yard sale around here starts at 7am. Except for the ones that start at 6am. It must be some old warped Protestant work ethic that they have to start at the crack of dawn. If you're not there at the beginning, you get nothing. I do NOT do yard sales because I do not acknowledge the existence of 7am on a Sat.I did not try to go to the yard sale. I don't think I could have stayed polite. I hope no one was mean to the kids. For the person who said the yard sale was 100% profit, you are so right. She got everything for free and sold it for money.I wish I could remember details. A couple of years ago there was some bill in the legislature to regulate people selling food out of a home kitchen. There was an uproar and they made sure to exempt bake sales etc used by churches, little leagues, whatever to make money. I suspect she thinks she is covered by that exception. But I thought the exception only applied to organizations not individuals.
You guys know I really hate to say this but: I was thinking, OK, this is probably Jon's weekend, TLC did not care what weekend to have this yard sale, they have a filming schedule, so Kate & TLC or maybe just TLC paid Jon some money to let the kids be filmed this weekend on his custody time(he is strapped for cash & homeless) and that he also could be there with his kids. Therefore Kate could not prevent Jon from being there. That article about the eviction & cat, Jon said he was going to court, I wonder if he filed, about losing custody time? Cause, we all know, that Jon is not welcome to anything Kate does, and for her to have a change of heart, no way!
I actually found Jon's "don't tell my kids what to do" childish. ________Why?Jon is there father and Steve is to the kids-(?????) .
It would be nice if I could google. The law is almost 4 years old. Church bake sales are only exempt if you sell safe items: no refridgeration or heat required.http://www.eatsafepa.com/faqs.aspx
I don't believe the queen KK has changed she's still a b**h with her broom stick shoved up her bum with her flying monkey Steve.But maybe I'm wrong and the witch KK has turned into Glenda the good witch lol.
Brenda Schuettler@sweetbren66@helloross I am here to !! Where are you !???#Cleavlander Reach out sweety!!#LoveYou my fav gay !!! It looks like Uggs missed the yard sale because she went to Miami, but *now* who is she calling "sweety?" Where's the Daymond? Fickle, much? LOL!
If Jon was there, wouldn't that make him complicit with filming his kids? Something doesn't make sense here...
I wonder what TFW will say on the couch when they show Jon showing up at the Katie of Sunnybrook Farms Yard Sale and going up to the kids! She will dab dab be reflective and they will show Jon playing with the kids and other kids! They will flashback when they were little and sniff sniff and then go back to Jon playing with the kids and having a ball.--------------------I honestly don't believe that Jon's name or presence will be mentioned when this episode is shown.
chefsummer #Leh @ 181,I'm voting for a).
Therefore Kate could not prevent Jon from being there. &&&&Kate can't prevent him from being there regardless as long as it was his time. Between the two of them he sounds reasonable and accommodating. He knows they're going to film regardless what he thinks about it, so might as well make the best of it by saying sure I can't stop the filming but instead of creating a scene out of it, I'll just see my kids anyway. Can't beat em join em.Like Kate would ever show up to play with the kids on the playground so Jon could do whatever if it were HER custodial time. It's called going with the flow, and it's what mature adults do.

This is what she had been praying for, so sad it was so fleeting. Yeah right, she wishes he would just disappear.
I find it disgusting that Jon was there. So now he's approving of his kids being filmed? What a flip flopper. &&&Why does that mean he approves of anything?If it's his weekend, he has a right to see his children. The fact that he chose to see them at the yard sale in no way suggests he approves or disproves of anything.You don't deprive your children of seeing YOU because you're upset about something. That only punishes the children. (And yet I've seen parents do that, and it's really freaking sick, IMO)
The yard sale started at 7am because almost every yard sale around here starts at 7am. Except for the ones that start at 6am. It must be some old warped Protestant work ethic that they have to start at the crack of dawn.&&&Yes that must be a garage sale thing. Even the few we have here all start at 7am.There's a certain type of yard sale people who are not interested unless they can be there at 7am lol.
If it's his weekend, he has a right to see his childrenThis is my point. It's *his* weekend. He can see them where he wants. Is there no law in PA?
Jeanne, go to google and download the google toolbar for free. it will be on your page. I love it.
@MiloandJack: I know you have 2b very tired @Kateplusmy8 ..so I hope U have your feet propped up, relaxing & enjoying some fine wine! You deserve it! :)========That's right Milo, remind everyone that TFW likes her wine.
What kind of furniture did she have for sale?
This is my point. It's *his* weekend. He can see them where he wants. Is there no law in PA? &&&&Apparently he played with them for a bit and then according to somebody else, left with all of them. It sounds like it was his weekend and he's trying not to cause a Herculean fight, especially in public. It's a completely reasonable thing for a parent to do, especially when the other parent is an alienator. You don't engage, you don't cause fights, you don't quibble over the finer details. He knows he lost the filming battle. He knows they are going to film. You might as well try to make it as pleasant as possible for them by putting a smile on your face and just being fun and happy Dad when you go to pick them up. There is value in sending the message to the children you don't hate their mother and don't want to fight with her, as much as she has done the opposite. His fight should and has happened in the courts, not in front of the children. When he sees his children, there should be no indication there is any sort of battle going on.
There is value in sending the message to the children you don't hate their mother and don't want to fight with herOne could argue there's just as much value sending the message that he doesn't support their exploitation for another minute.
One could argue there's just as much value sending the message that he doesn't support their exploitation for another minute. &&&Sure, I happen to think that is a personal decision that is up to the parent, not the public with our limited information.
Therefore Kate could not prevent Jon from being there. That article about the eviction & cat, Jon said he was going to court, I wonder if he filed, about losing custody time?----------------------I thought the context was about the tabloids reporting perhaps libel in regards to the cat story, or something to do with the landlord's right to evict...NOT having anything to do with custody issues.
Narcissists can be charming when they need to be.&&&I agree.A skilled narcissist can turn it on and off like a light switch. They could be wonderfully delightful at some event, then the moment they jump into the car they're a bitch. It's not unlike anyone really. Most people behave themselves in public, and any discord happens behind closed doors.
