Kate Plus 8 "Cleaning House": Discussion Thread

A plan for room renovations finds Mady and Cara getting their own spaces, while the younger girls move upstairs and the boys downstairs.

Has anyone called TFW out on twitter regarding the book incident? Wonder if that will be swiffered out of future episodes. I'm so thankful the kids will have access to YouTube so they can prove certain things happened despite TLC's attempt at 'cleaning up' her behavior.

Formerly Duped said...

I was sad to see the new Little Family show coming to TLC. They look like a nice bunch, but we know what happens to TLC reality 'star'

I agree with all the comments this morning even from the little bit of this last episode I saw and the previous ones. What is their 'real' life like if this is what is filmed? Isn't the producer shocked- the man who asks the questions, like 'is this your bed?' and other riveting topics.
I also find the passive nature of the boys disturbing, because they must be internalizing. "Mommy" is so mean to them. As for the girls, Kate can't handle any of them and they all seem to have her number.
There is little love in that household. Even the Hannah-Leah duo sometimes splits into fighting. I bet the twins have their moments, too, despite being best friends and how are they BFFs with Kate? I don't see any affection among those three, except when Kate went nuts over Mady's painting of Zorro.Leah is becoming just as loud and quarrelsome as Mady. The 'bad' kids really seem the nicest- Collin and Alexis.The other boys also seem sweet but troubled, defeated. I too wonder what they are all like in school.And I agree- what does Steve like about this craziness and ignorant Kate? She really is uninformed and dumb. Thinks she's the bee's knees- "there's enough to go around" re:her flirting with the contractors.And 'I'm all about education" and culturing the kids- gah.

I know what you mean KK, I think the very same thing about you every time you are on TV!

It's ALL ABOUT THE MONEY, MONEY ,MONEY! TFW could shut this nightmare down in a minute, but her ego is all about the money. She's not too smart.

Call Me Crazy said...

And then she very disrespectfully, with great big arm swoops (so he'd know how stupid he was) dumps every last book off of every shelf onto the floor.

This is horrifying. Just when I think she cannot treat those children any worse, she comes up with new sick ways to torment them. Her verbal, psychological and emotional abuse is beyond cruel - it is criminal. She is vile and twisted.

Flowers can grow in muck....181. Thank you for sharing your memories of what obviously was a difficult childhood. It is good to hear you and your siblings have survived and found healthy relationships. It was a pleasure reading your words.

Vanessa said...

And it was caught on camera for all the world to see. In all fairness though, she was not "shouting about how stupid that was". She asked him a bunch of questions (have you ever seen how books are stacked in a library? How would anyone see the names of the books?) while she was dumping the books back on to the floor. She didn't raise her voice. She probably considered it a "teaching moment". But it was unnecessary & unkind.
****************************************************
Agree, no yelling/screaming, but her message to him was clear "again, you lose, loser". He's just standing there, all quiet, hands behind his back.
Meanwhile the girls get the total opposite treatment from her. Talk about an opportunity for a teaching moment for those girls. Maybe it could have been, "see girls, look at the effort Joel is making"

For some of these kids to be this unhappy (Mady in particular), it really makes me wonder why 1 or more haven't moved in with Jon. 195

Threats, bribes and as someone mentioned, Stockholm Syndrome.

TLC stinks said...

We have no idea if what few details Kate has said about her childhood are true or not. Kevin seems normal. Kate may just be exaggerating to gain sympathy. No one had a perfect childhood and most don't end up as crazy as she is. She blames everyone else, including her silent parents, for any issues she has.

Kate is a twit said...

I'm beginning to feel sorry for Paige. Why won't Kate follow her?

Paige C ‏@Paige_Kate8fan · 42m42 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 Kate you're killing me... Plz follow me 😭😩

Paige C ‏@Paige_Kate8fan · 33m33 minutes ago
@Dunlapsisters @Kateplusmy8 I just got out my bf drove me it cost about a grand too... After hotel and food and gas$

So it cost her about $1000 to go see Kate when she appeared on those 2 TV shows in Canada, and Kate can't even give her the courtesy of a follow?

Maybe Paige needs to call her #SweetPea and keep telling her what a rockin' body she has, and she'll follow her like she follows Milo.

It could be just sex between her and Steve. He hasn't divorced Gina for her. Some guys just mess around.

Then TFW sweeps in and starts shouting about how stupid that was. She says to the kid, in a derogatory way...haven't you ever seen how the library does it? (Implied: you idiot!).

And then she very disrespectfully, with great big arm swoops (so he'd know how stupid he was) dumps every last book off of every shelf onto the floor.

I was horrified at how disrespectful she was. Horrified.

====

Did she demand they also be arranged by the Dewey decimal system? Bitch. Most garage sales I've ever seen have a table of books and by the first hour they're scattered all over the tabletop. It's a garage sale not a flipping department store. The emotional abuse she doles out to those boys is as demonic as the physical abuse she inflicted upon them when she yanked them up by their hair and threw them into their cribs. She is a stinking, vile, horrible person.

Another thing - How much stuff did they have that she had to take over the church grounds to put all of it out there. I can see combined yard sales where a bunch of families get together and hold a sale but for one family to take that much room speaks to her greediness. The woman needs to be hogtied and driven away to a padded room. She is certifiably nuts.

I guess I'll have to watch to see for myself, even though my better judgment is warning me not to.

Great post about how some overcome bad parenting, with a positive outcome.

Of course, we did not have a camera in our face non-stop, so I truly feel for the G8.

getofftwitter said...

I would like to point out, that Kates so-call basement, is really the lower level of the house. I watch a lot of Property Brothers and Love it or List it and House Hunters etc. When they showed the boys new room, for the first time, and the second time, they showed the windows, you can see the grass outside. That part of the house is ground level, not 3-5 feet below ground level. Which would makes it a basement. That house is a mulit split level. It is ground level in front, and mulit-level in back. So those boys can just climb out the window. Their room has regular size windows. Most basements have those little square or oblong, single hung windows.

My basement is 3feet below sidewalk level. My neighbors is 5 feet below sidewalk level.

For all of you saying she needs therapy, I couldn't agree more. However, there is no cure or treatment for Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

I really feel empathy for Kate. She had a horrible childhood and just hasn't had the resources to process it and break the cycle with the way she parents.
She needs HELP.

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

Angie, I appreciate that you feel empathy for Kate. I might too if I hadn't grown up with a mother who was just like her.

But to say that Kate didn't/doesn't have the resources to deal with whatever issues she has is ridiculous.

She's a bloody millionaire who barely spends anytime at all with her children. When she does, she's filming them so that she can SELL said "product".

She could very easily go into counseling and get therapy for herself AND the children if she wanted.

Yes, she needs HELP and could have an appointment this afternoon with a reputable psychologist if she really wanted one.

The issue is that Kate doesn't WANT help. She doesn't think she needs it. She cuts out anybody from her life who even suggests it.

Nope, I can't muster even an ounce of empathy for that narcissistic, abusive fame whore. The kids are the ones who deserve the empathy.

Blowing In The Wind said...

I haven't watched the specials. In fact, I don't think I ever saw any of the Kate episodes after Jon left. Does she ever show any affection for these kids? Does she hug them, give them kisses, playful hair tussling...everything that you'd expect a mom to do with her kids? I'm trying to remember if I ever saw her doing this, even on the very early episodes.

Mel said...

Flowers can grow in muck….yes. I understand. Meaningful post.

I agree that many of us came here because what’s happening with the Gosselin children resonated for us, and we hoped to gain some understanding. (And then we stayed because it’s just so much fun with all the other things we talk about.)

While my mom wasn’t abusive, I also think that she didn’t enjoy having children much. There wasn’t much in the way of nurturing. Like you, my brothers and I are all very close, we ended up ok, and like you, we always treated our parents with respect.

Later in life I read a book about how to take care of a parent who didn’t take care of you. It helped me tremendously to get past my childhood and enabled me to be the person I wanted to be with mom, especially when mom aged and needed my undivided attention and care. I have no regrets.

AuntieAnn said...

angie said... 195

And I find it interesting that the boys seem to be 'normal', despite how their mother treats them.

That's because they've been beaten into submissiveness.

The day is going to come when they realize they don't have to take her physical or emotional abuse any longer. She'd better start praying that those boys haven't inherited her malevolent genes.

Sara said...

Kate did say the shingles had been cultured. So I do believe she had them. She looked truly ill and stress can be a contributing factor.

Mady does not know how to behave. She can not control herself imo. I think she is quite ill.

Mel said...

To PJ #190 : YES!!!!
This needs to be in bold on the very top of every post.


To the G kids: If, someday you find this blog, please know that the people here cared for you kids and wanted nothing more than to never have had your lives exposed to us. We want peace and joy and love for all of you but we don't want to witness it. I hope someday that you all have wonderful relationships with each other. Please know that you are children and are not responsible for the things that happened.

I agree, TFW degraded him, who was helping, rather than praising him, as it appeared many of the kids were not helping. Has issues with the boys, who never seem to do anything right in her eyes. And she should own that.

Alberta Girl said...

Like many here, I couldn't really watch the entire thing, and turned it off mid way through the episode.

It is really boring TV. Kids screeching and Kate yelling about how exhausting everything is, is not compelling.

And why would you schedule a huge basement cleanup at the same time as the Twins' birthday party? It drives me crazy when people deliberately make things more difficult than they need to be. My SIL does this all the time, and it always throws the kids into chaos.

Oh yeah - she is SO scared of Shoka. Very evident in her body language, and you could hear it in her voice. Noticed one of the twins grabbed Shoka's collar so he wouldn't jump up on Kate.

Animal lover my ass!

Molly12 said...

I was just shocked last night at the people begging for Kate to follow them. I don't get the whole idea of the follow but I found it cringe worthy. It reminded me of Kate's contest to have people run out and promote her show because she needed the ratings. I have a feeling that she will unfollow all these people after next weeks episode...after she got what she wanted.

Terri said...

On last nights episode Kate acted as if she discovered this new thing called being a Mom. I couldn't count the amount of times she said "As a Mom". I wanted to reach through the TV and shake her. Being a mom is not something that is foreign to most. Well, maybe it is to her.

-----
The book debacle was pre-sale when they were cleaning the basement play area. The books were on the very bottom shelf of a cabinet. Kate had to get down on the ground to pull the books out. With the yard sale, Kate envisioned a "store" set up with an electronics section, book section etc. And she did not price anything...she said most people had figured out a price by the time it came to pay & also that most had a $20 bill in their hand. Also, she said they donated a little over $1100 to the animal shelter.

westcoastie said...

Has anyone else thought 'Stockholm Syndrome' in regards to the boys? Of course they love her.....how many times have they been threatened to 'be gone' to 'not be a Gosselin'. I don't doubt she tells them they 'are like their father' and she isn't smiling when she says it. Which is confusing as hell for a kid.

from wikipedia:
Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes "strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other."[4] One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome is based on Freudian theory. It suggests that the bonding is the individual's response to trauma in becoming a victim. Identifying with the aggressor is one way that the ego defends itself. When a victim believes the same values as the aggressor, they cease to be perceived as a threat.[5]

Alberta Girl said...

I also think the twins know more about how much their mother is despised, despite Kate saying she shields them from that. They have iPhones, they can look anything up.

I thought Mady's little "come and get yer popcorn" was an acknowledgement to the audience that she knows her mom was mocked for that - just a thought.

----------------------------------
I do agree with this 100%. Her bitterness, anger, and complete inability to be grateful for all of the help she received over the years, tossing friends/family and volunteers to the curb say A LOT about her.

Some folks (not too many) are bottomless pits, and the more they get fed (thanks TLC -snark), the more they think they need to be fed. Anyone hiring her should have seen the narcissism with her, but it was all about the ratings.

Counterpoint - I read yesterday that Snooki and JWOW of NJ Shore, were no longer going to film their show, as they felt it was not in the best interest of their kids. I know they are not a great example, but even they seem to get that their kids should not be filmed.

What does this say about TFW?

Karen Kaufman said...

This show will be viewed through different lenses when something terrible happens to one or more of those kids. It would be poetic justice if footage can be used against Kate.

I totally agree. Just wish Jon would get custody of the 3 boys, as they are clearly not a priority in TFW's life, and need to be valued as the good kids that they are. She has a lot of anger, and it should not be deflected at the boys.

-----
Sorry, I should have clarified...I meant Kate doesn't have the resources within HERSELF to deal with her past issues. She lacks some sort of internal switch or self awareness to realize that what she's doing to her kids is wrong.
And yes, I grew up with almost non-existent parenting and somehow managed to overcome those parenting issues and not inflict it on my kids.

I am amazed that the boys, as much abuse as they received when younger (re:journal) have somehow managed to escape the behavior that most of the girls emulate. Baffling!

I have watched only 1 episode, the one the lobsterishy one. Haven't had the stomach to watch the others. :(
I was amazed at how 'christian' Kate handled the 'do animals have souls conversation. She asked if he'd read that online somewhere (can't recall exactly what she said)..it was so incredibly stupid on her part, shows that she doesn't take an active interest in their faith.

I don't understand why Kate can't see how she's hurting her kids, especially the twins. I think Mady's very resentful of the tups existence--she and Cara were very young when the tups were born and they were shuttled to the sidelines too quickly. After the tups were born they ceased to be children and were then 'helpers'. The twins are the most damaged of the kids, imo.

And so many plead that that the filming stop, so the kids can have a normal childhood and for Kate to start being a mommy....my thought is, those cameras give them further ammo for later on down the road when they sue her sorry ass. Turning off the cameras means those kids are in that house of horrors with that crazy biotch...if she's not playing a good mommy on tv, she doesn't know how to be one in real life. It's a no win situation for the kids. I don't know how Jon and the kids stand it.

Haven't watched recently, but from reviews here, it seems all she does it blow her own horn, complain how hard it to parent, ignores the girls' bad behavior and treats the silent boys like crap, as usual.

Some people never know when enough is enough.

Suze said...

A few thoughts about last night's episode:

What a dumb azz to let Shoka eat the whole 8x8 birthday cake she baked him. Break off a piece, that's plenty. He must have had a tummy ache after eating it all at one time. Gaaaaa, she doesn't know anything about having a pet and she certainly doesn't have any common sense.

And, talking about common sense - what person, other than Kate who had to because TLC was coming to film it all, would schedule family photos in the midst of preparing for a yard sale?

How nice to dump everything at the site, then leave for the night only to return in the morning and have it all spread out so nicely on tables and racks! It didn't look like she was ready in the am - those poor customers who stood and waited for her to get ready to announce 'let the games begin' to get the sale started. SMH

Who drove her SUV with the trailer hooked to the back from the house to the church parking lot? Was it a producer or was it Steve because I'm sure she didn't do it!

If I was a yard sale customer I'd have dropped the stuff I wanted to buy if I had to wait in line (there must have been 50-75 waiting at one point) while she talked to everyone, explained to each person why she didn't price anything, and mugged for the camera.

She said her method of not pricing anything was 'proven' to always work. Exactly how many yard sales has she held to make this proclamation?

Did y'all notice the nice big printed signs TLC had posted on the tables welcoming everyone to the sale? And, then contrast those with Kate's scribbled signs for other things?

Ah, yes, Skeeve was there, holding up a tree!

OH, and the whole family supposedly rode in Kate's SUV. I don't remember what make/model it is to check the passenger capacity, but IIRC, it didn't hold 9 people and we commented at the time that it was an impractical purchase.

Kate mentioned a few times how she didn't expect to have a sale where she'd meet so many 'good, loving, wonderful people' in the community and I wanted to scream that those people have been there all along and many probably helped the family in the early days, but because of her attitudes she doesn't interact with any of them. If she were more friendly she'd have had those people in her life, and more importantly in her children's lives, years ago.

Blowing In The Wind said...

....That was condescending, mean, humiliating, arrogant, demeaning, degrading, shaming. The whole point was to shame the boy. And she did a fabulous job.

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

And yet the sheeple continue to support her. The very young fans want to grow up to be just like her. She inspires them. They are in awe of her. It just makes you wonder how they have been raised. It does make one question how we, as a society, could have veered so far off track when it comes to parenting, that these fans cry for more of this on television, more exploitation, more rubber necking into the lives of a dysfunctional family. They are enablers, with Milo at the helm, and when you stop and think about it, they are giving her exactly what she wants, even if it's contributing to her descent into some kind of psychological psychosis, with her kids following right behind her. As long as there is TLC and others out there willing to throw money her way, she will follow and greedily lap up anything that comes her way. Nothing is going to stop her. Nothing.

Has anyone read "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman? When I hear about Kate's behavior, her insecurity coupled with her narcissism and greed, I have to think that if she doesn't get help for whatever is eating at her, that this could be her in the next decade or so. Perhaps not to the extent as the protagonist in the story, but to some degree this could be what awaits her when she is alone and there is nobody to control or manipulate.

Is she getting professional help for her issues? Is she on medication? Who knows, but she needs to save herself in order for the kids to spared. The cycle needs to be broken.

Okay...that does indeed imply a whole other aspect of lacking and it is sad. Empathy though, for me, like I said, I reserve it for the kids.

And I totally agree...how she does not see, how she is able to ignore her children's pain when it is right there in front of her?

In the end, her denial is her worst enemy. As long as she denies there are problems, they will never get fixed. Don't really care about her at all but it is just so unfair to those kids.

****************************************
to clarify Auntie, this scene was at home when they're dumping shit all over the place to sell. He organized the books that obviously weren't going to the yard sale. During all this commotion and sorting, she has the effing time to, like Mel said, swoop in and throw all his hard work onto the floor to do it the "right" way. This is the kind of subtle, mind fuckery narcissistic mothers bestow on their young. Yes, she didn't hit, scream, name call, but the abuse was palpable.

Flower and PJ, I'd love to have you as sisters!! No denial for me either. One of my siblings insists that our mother was not an alcoholic (yeah right) BECAUSE then SHE would have to own up to her own alcoholism.

Agree.
Let's play make believe for a minute. If she never orchestrated the tup pregnancy and had only the twins, she most definitely would have pitted those 2 against each other. Cara was well on her way to being the "golden child" and Mady the scapegoat. The damage would have been less, IMO since the rest wouldn't have happened, but you can bet those 2 would have still had a crazy person as their mother.

I don't have Twitter, so I really don't understand this "follow" stuff. Is it an ego thing? So someone follows another person. Is this important? Doesn't it just mean that one Tweeter (the follower) can read the other person's (the followee) tweets? I can't imagine Kate wanting to read a stranger's tweets. Why would she care what a fan is doing when she doesn't have any idea who that person is? Some of these fans were absolutely giddy and wetting themselves over Kate's following them. I don't get it.

Dear Paige -- please stop and think for a minute. Does Kate deserve your "fan appreciation"? If you are looking for something from Kate, you should probably accept that it's just not going to happen. Maybe your youthful energy could be re-directed to exploring the world around you, getting out in nature, helping out in your community, spending time with friends, and otherwise enjoying your life. Forget about Kate Gosselin - she is not worth your time.

(Doubt Paige reads here, but how I wish I could talk some sense into some of these fans that should be spending their time in other ways than mooning after Kate Gosselin.)

Localyocal said...

Suze said...

I just don't understand how he can watch these episodes and come up with the word grace.

*****

I doubt Geraldo has watched even part of one episode of K+8. His background info is most likely based soley on blurbs he's read or heard about how much of a shrew she is. Because she flirted w/him, he didn't see the shrew in her. She tried to use her 'feminine wiles' (cough, cough) around the men but with the women she was passive aggressive. I think he saw what she projected to the men - the weak female who needs a strong man to help her wrangle her 8 wild children. If any of the strong women were asked about Kate's 'grace' (it makes me cough to even think about that word used to describe her) they'd probably say they saw right thru her inauthentic persona.

AuntieAnn said...

Vanessa said... 44

to clarify Auntie, this scene was at home when they're dumping shit all over the place to sell. He organized the books that obviously weren't going to the yard sale. During all this commotion and sorting, she has the effing time to, like Mel said, swoop in and throw all his hard work onto the floor to do it the "right" way. This is the kind of subtle, mind fuckery narcissistic mothers bestow on their young. Yes, she didn't hit, scream, name call, but the abuse was palpable.

====

Okay, thanks for clarifying. Still, if they were his books he should be allowed to arrange them in his own way. I'll bet her books are thrown helter skelter on shelves in her room. I agree mind fuckery is the only way to describe narc parenting.

I guess I'll have to watch this episode. Later though because right now I'm criminally low on rumspringa.

Anyone else find it odd that TFW made one of the girls promise to clean the bathroom so it looks just like the picture? Something tells me there are photos of how each room should look and all rooms must literally be picture perfect at all times.

Over And Out said...

OH, and the whole family supposedly rode in Kate's SUV. I don't remember what make/model it is to check the passenger capacity, but IIRC, it didn't hold 9 people and we commented at the time that it was an impractical purchase.

------
It's an eight-passenger Sequoia, but with kids, an extra one could easily get in there. Of course, there would be the issue of one of them not having a seat belt.

Vanessa said...

Did y'all notice the nice big printed signs TLC had posted on the tables welcoming everyone to the sale? And, then contrast those with Kate's scribbled signs for other things?

Hey, forgot to mention, but the signs on the trees advertising the yard sale had some lines blurred out. You could clearly read TLC and some other stuf, but a few lines were blurred.
Now why would that be?

Carolyn said...

I really feel empathy for Kate. She had a horrible childhood and just hasn't had the resources to process it and break the cycle with the way she parents.
She needs HELP.

===========

I agree Kate needs major help! but I don't think we know enough about her childhood to say it was "horrible". I've always had the impression that she had a pretty good childhood - she was able to pass off a lot of stuff she didn't care for onto Kevin. She seemed to be popular in school and was a cheerleader. She probably describes it as bad because she wasn't given everything she wanted or didn't always get her way and her parents may have been strict, but I'm guessing it was typical and average. If she was anything like she is now, she must have been a very difficult child to raise.

One of Mady's revealing comments during the episode:
"I'm not acting like this because I'm a teenager. I'm acting like this because you either did something unfair or the little kids are just really annoying."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mady is fully aware of her own behaviour. She has Kate over a barrel.
Her little sisters are learning fast, too.
------------

This is what happens when you have your kids over a barrel to film, treat the girls much better than the boys, and have lost total control of your children. My mom was a widowed mother of six at 40 and would have never considered putting any of us through filming for her own sake. Rather we all pulled together, supported ALL siblings, out of respect, older ones got jobs part-time, and did all of this out of respect for my wonderful mom.
******
What a heartwarming tribute to your mother, who held the family together in a very difficult time. My boss's father passed away when he was in high school. He remembers that times were very lean for a number of years, as his mother returned to college to complete her degree (after more than twenty years as a SAHM). He, his mother and his siblings pulled together after their father's passing and he had such admiration for his mom for getting her degree.

I often think of Stephen Colbert. I think there may have been 11 kids in their family, and then his father and two brothers died in an airplane accident. What a loss for the whole family! He gave such a moving tribute to his mother on her passing.

I cannot imagine any of the Gosselin children having such heartfelt and happy memories, and that makes me sad for them.

If Kate was abused or harmed as a child I do feel for her.

She didn't exactly 'write' a cookbook now did she? She took a bunch of recipes, doubled and tripled the salt and then compiled them into something she thought should pass as a cookbook. It got her a "book" tour which translates into a vacay with Steve and it got her a few appearances on teevee. Two of things she loves the most, besides herself.

Her cooking is the shits. Plain and simple. We have the photos to prove it.

No great conspiracy. I would imagine that it was the typical language when you are entering a place where filming is taking place indicating that you are consenting to be filmed. It would be blurred because that detracts from the "reality" aspect by reminding people that it's a television production.

Suze said...

When they showed the boys new room, for the first time, and the second time, they showed the windows, you can see the grass outside. That part of the house is ground level, not 3-5 feet below ground level. Which would makes it a basement. That house is a mulit split level. It is ground level in front, and mulit-level in back.

*****

What Kate has is called a 'walk-out basement' where part of that level is above ground, with a doorway to the outside. They're common on properties, like Kate's, that are on a hill. Whether all or part of a level is underground or not, it's still a basement.

Is Paige the fan who was singled out in the audience at one of Kate's book appearances (Canadian talk show, I think??)?

She looked like a very nice young lady, and I'm sorry that she feels so let down.
Hopefully, she has sane parent or other adults in her life that can give her some perspective on users, liars and abusers like Kate.

It's a hard lesson to learn- I had someone like that in my life, and when I fell out of her favor, it was beyond hurtful. I was left asking, "what did I do?".
It took a long time for me to realize it wasn't me.

Suze said...

And I find it interesting that the boys seem to be 'normal', despite how their mother treats them. What is going on in that house?!
*****

I think the boys are adorable and charming, but I get very sad when I see their reactions to Kate and their sisters. They've probably been beaten down and beaten so many times that they're afraid to respond and act out like their sisters are still doing. Yes, their behavior is what you'd expect for a well mannered 10 year old, but I doubt it was achieved thru proper and loving parenting and I wonder what price they had to pay for it to be achieved.

I don't have Twitter, so I really don't understand this "follow" stuff. Is it an ego thing? So someone follows another person. Is this important? Doesn't it just mean that one Tweeter (the follower) can read the other person's (the followee) tweets? I can't imagine Kate wanting to read a stranger's tweets. Why would she care what a fan is doing when she doesn't have any idea who that person is? Some of these fans were absolutely giddy and wetting themselves over Kate's following them. I don't get it.

Am I missing something?
******
Yes, it's an ego thing.
Kate doesn't give a crap what her fans are doing, as long as they are worshipping her.
This stunt was nothing more than a ploy to get Kate's Twitter busier with non-stop ass kissing and sucking up.
Everyone was sending treacly tweets to get her attention, in the hopes that they would become a chosen one, and have the bragging rights of being one of Kate's buds.
Like it meant anything to Kate. It was just another hoop for her minions to jump through.
At least her lickspittles could do this in private, unlike Kate's masochistically twisted task of telling them to post public signs and parade around with them even.
Kate must have been laughing her ass off that she could actually get people to do something so dumb and embarrassing.

Finally, you're not missing a thing!

To the poster "flowers growing out of muck" - thank you for sharing your own painful memories and about how you and your siblings grew up with a mother similar to Kate yet found a way to survive and thrive as adults.

This remains one of the great mysteries of life and Sheepdom. Milo, who is deeply and passionately in love with Kate, has never met her despite the fact that Kate was in areas on speaking tours when Milo certainly could have met her. What prevented her from getting on a plane, flying to PA to meet Kate at that garage sale? The plane trip would have been less than two hours.

Even Paige drove hours to see Kate. If Milo does live in the south as she claims, she certainly could have made the trip to Ft. Lauderdale for the cruise. Yet, she didn't sign up for the cruise. If, for health reasons, she couldn't go on the cruise, she could have arranged to meet Kate prior to or after the cruise but she didn't. There have been so many opportunities for the two of them to meet, but it never happened. Why?

M* does not know how to behave. She can not control herself imo. I think she is quite ill.

I disagree. I think she's a frustrated teen who needs a warm, nurturing mother, someone who will listen to her, will model good and appropriate behavior, and demonstrate that her children's needs are more important than her own. Considering how she's been raised, her behavior is expected and probably not as bad as it could be.

I think she's a loving, creative, intelligent child who is doing all she knows to be recognized. I think she's crying out for someone to notice she wants the nonsense and chaos in her life (the abusive and inconsistent parenting from Kate) to stop. I don't think she needs much more to flourish and be happy than to receive loving and calm parenting with firm, consistent, realistic rules and expectations. I don't see M* as the problem, but rather the cause is Kate and M* is just reacting. If the cause was changed I think her response/behavior would reflect it.

Suze said...

She lacks some sort of internal switch or self awareness to realize that what she's doing to her kids is wrong.

There is a bad switch. She's a narcissist. One of the characteristics is those affected don't think there's anything wrong with them and so they refuse to get help.

I thought Mady's little "come and get yer popcorn" was an acknowledgement to the audience that she knows her mom was mocked for that - just a thought.

Is Paige the fan who was singled out in the audience at one of Kate's book appearances (Canadian talk show, I think??)?
She looked like a very nice young lady, and I'm sorry that she feels so let down.
========================================================
Yes, I was at that taping. Steve came out and chatted with Paige prior to the taping. She was then brought up on the stage during the show to meet Kate and receive a "cookbook". Paige was genuinely excited but in a nice way...not over-the-top. It appears that Kate has thrown her to the curb. I sense that Paige is still a fan of sorts but not to the extent she was before. This snub may turn her off completely.

Oh, Gladys, you doofus. I am sure that TLC is just shaking in their boots because there might be some angry people if more episodes aren't scheduled.

She really doesn't give a rat's rear end about those kids, does she? What in the heck is wrong with these people? I just can't understand their stupidity and total lack of perception at not being able to see that this is a dysfunctional family and most certainly should not be put on display for the entertainment of sheeple who just don't get it and never will. Their lack of intelligence is frightening, and Milo and her lust for Kate is probably the scariest and creepiest of all.

getofftwitter said...

Kate's handling of the books on the shelf was disgusting. If Kate was as busy as she was complaining, then she should have, said to that boy, well, that is nice that the books are on the shelf, but, there is a better way of putting them on the shelf. I think you for your effort, and since we don't have a lot time right now. Later, I will show you a better way of putting the books on the shelf, but you you did a nice job. Not scooping all the books on the floor and making that kid feel like a nothing, that anything he does, is not good enough. SHAME ON KATE!

Same with the tup girls and the fighting about the wrapping paper. I would have done a Supernanny thing. A time out! I would have counted to 3, to get their attention, taken away the wrapping paper and had them sit on the same couch, for 10 mins, quietly, and for every sound I hear I will add time , and tell them to think about what you did, and how you won't do it again or I will take away stuff. Not act childish like Kate did by turning up the mixer, and letting them fight it out, and also remind the rest.

Even though it was in 2009 the menu proves the "realist of the real" was a big, fat lie. How many families have personal chef prepared meals on a Wednesday night? They had to be spending $1,000+ per week on just that luxury.

TFW thought the gravy train would never end. It is quite apparent that she spent a lot of the kids' money trying to live like the upper 1% with chef prepared meals, trips to NY for hair styling, etc. Remember her obsession with Fig & Olive for a while?

I wonder if Katherine is still around. It wouldn't surprise me if she still has three or four nights of meals prepared for her each week.

getofftwitter said...

Wow, just had a deja vu. Remember, Mommy Dearest: when Mommy threw all the closet on the floor, because of a wire hanger.

All This Is That said...

I wonder if Milo is frantically DMing or emailing Kate, telling her that Paige is begging for a follow, and it would be nice of Kate (for her "image") to acknowledge Paige and follow her.

If I had someone like Milo pestering me and nosing around my business on a daily basis, it would drive me to drink. Yet, Milo doesn't see what an obnoxious nuisance she is, or if she does, she doesn't care. Her behavior is just so off the charts, especially for a married adult woman with children. Clearly, something is off there, and I don't understand why her own family doesn't see this. Then again, maybe they are all like that, and this is just normal for them.

The cameraman asking the boys if they hug their mom seems really inappropriate to me (as if filming their entire childhood isn't bad enough). I find it creepy when they are filmed without a family member present and the voice of an adult male is asking them questions - especially the scene from the previous episode with the girl tups in their bedroom. He was asking about their stuffed animals; it really gave me the creeps.

People used to use the word intercourse a couple of generations back sometimes- I remember my mother telling us that someone at her college asked a professor if she had seen another teacher lately, and she replied, 'I haven't had intercourse ( meaning a chat!) with Professor Smith for some two weeks!'

MikeB said...

I found the info getofftwitter was talking about. It shows 1.44 million viewers watched. That is down from the 1.73 million last week but not as much of a drop as I would have expected now that we are into February sweeps and the broadcast networks are back to first-run episodes of series like NCIS:New Orleans.

The numbers so far have been 1.79, 1.32, 1.73, and 1.44 million. I think that is good enough to secure a spring break filming for another special or two, probably to coincide with TFW's 40th birthday, that will be broadcast this summer. I don't think she'll ever get back to a regular weekly show though. The kids are getting old enough and regulations on filming during school time are getting strict enough that it wouldn't make for a good series.

Of course. Kate acted all innocent, and said that "a nurse was needed".

I don't think she is either, but she won't openly admit it. During her tweet fests, Kate followed 18 people the first week and 14 last night, for a total of 32.

But she couldn't make one of her biggest fans happy and follow her? She followed one of the people who is among BV's minions--Indiana Anny, but she won't follow Paige?

I don't blame Paige for being upset. And of course, Milo's butting into the convo and trying to defend Kate. She shows no empathy at all for Paige, actually none of those fans seem to, otherwise, you'd think they'd be tweeting Kate to follow Paige.

Wonder how Milo would feel if Kate decided to unfollow her?

Kate is a twit said...

Oh yeah - she is SO scared of Shoka. Very evident in her body language, and you could hear it in her voice. Noticed one of the twins grabbed Shoka's collar so he wouldn't jump up on Kate.
=========================

I haven't watched the episode, but if Shoka tried to jump on Kate while she was holding his birthday cake, it's her own damn fault, because she herself said they were trying to teach him to jump for his treats.

Another comment about the kids' manners ( which is not totally their fault)

On the Maine trip, we saw kids spitting food back onto the plate, licking fingers, playing with expensive seafood, using hands to eat, chewing with mouths open (ha!) and making a mess on the table. Kate was saying how gross the lobster dinner was and stood apart while they ate.

As for her amazing blueberry cobbler, brown sugar & maple oatmeal packets and blueberries, sounds like one of the 'recipes' from her crookbook

Kate is not happy that she only got 5 episodes for this season. Tweeting TLC that people didn't like hearing "Season finale next week". Kate obviously wanted more filming. Remember the tweet when fan asked how many episodes there were in this season and Kate answered, "So far…5!!!" So far, huh? Kate wanted a full season. Heck, she wanted to replace HBB. But TLC stuck to just 5 episodes, and of course it was TLC who decided that next week's episode was the finale. She didn't want it to end. I do think that there will be more updates in the future, but it doesn't look like TLC is on board for any more than that. If they wanted to bring back the show, they would have. They went with another "little people" family instead. Kate must be livid. In a week her big comeback/second chance is over.

It seems like a lot of stuff was crammed and jammed into last night's episode (haven't watched).
Even the changing rooms episode seemed to crunch things together.
For any of these things, in the past, there could have and would have been an episode:
Kids' birthday
Renovations
photo shoot
Pumpkin carving/Fall/halloween

I wonder if Kate was expecting for TLC to stretch alllllllllll of that footage, over all that time, into more episodes.

TLC stinks said...

I managed to watch some tonight. Interesting that Collin was not included at Sky Zone birthday party. She said he was staying at a "friend's". Maybe Jon? It's not like Kate to allow a child not to film. It was very evident, in the kitchen, that Cara had asked not to film but Kate and Mady made a big show of giving her hugs after Cara brushed off Kate's hug. Poor child. Really, the show sucked.

LOL, they wanted it to appear that the kids, after the yard sale, went home with Kate by filming them sitting in the BBB. And putting that witch in the driver's window obscured Steve who was driving, so those two were alone that night.

She's been in Wernersville for six years and she is just meeting neighbors at the yard sale?

I posted previously that Jen Stocks was the supervising producer, i. e. the real producer. I think Kate managed to get the title of producer because she contributed filming ideas, i.e. TLC's dime for birthday party, photo shoot, etc.

I guess it was just speculation years ago that Jen left the show because she had a conscience.

And, though I find him a bit of a nut I respect Geraldo's hard work and have said numerous times he and Leeza are the best players, and he seemed to have no problem with Kate or at least tolerated her without issue. Why would I respect someone and peg them to be top two who was kind to Kate if your theory holds true?

I judge contestants based on their merit, not on who befriends or doesn't befriend Kate. I stand behind my comments about Shawn, and Kate has nothing to do with it. Shawn was an idiot even if Kate weren't on this season. She threw out a few okay ideas and that was it, and she checked out. Even the other contestants all but said she was lazy.

According to an interview Kate did last week with Mertz Jaffer (discussed on a previous thread on the blog) when she was talking about the kids wanting to visit Camp Barnabas, Kate said they're going to be doing more episodes. IDK if that was her dreaming or if it is a sure thing, but I get a sick feeling it was confirmation she's already signed the kids up for more work. I predict they'll film during spring and summer breaks - more vacation trips and back to school episodes (because who hasn't seen the G8 on the first day of school, right?) ugh

Because that is exactly what it was. A photo shoot for TLC so that TLC could have updated pictures for their website and FB page for advertising. They had been using old pictures from several years ago.

She's never learned that this really shouldn't be done, and one of these days the "ignored" may stage a revolt, and it could get ugly.

Regarding the ratings for K+8, the number that matters to the networks is the "adult 18-49" number.

Here's an explanation:

"If you see a 2.2 national adults 18-49 rating, that doesn't mean 2.2 million adults 18-49 were watching, it means 2.2 percent of the 126,980,000 adults 18-49 in the United States (up ever-so-slightly from 126,960,000 last season) who live in a household with a television were watching based on the Nielsen estimates for the 2014-15 television season."

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2014/09/02/what-is-a-tv-rating-and-who-is-it-dating-2014-15-edition/298788/ Charts are included at that link.

So Kate's rating was 0.5% of the 126,980,000 adults 18-49 (those who spend the most dollars) in the United States. That means there were approximately 634,900 in the target advertising category who watched. The largest number of viewers were above and below that number.

Her numbers in the 18-49 category fluctuated, but did drop from the beginning of this particular series, if I recall correctly. Too lazy to look them up right now. LOL

Whether that number is high enough to warrant more shows is anyone's guess, but, as we've said, most of her viewers (and followers) are in the teeny bopper age range, not the big money spenders.

I think her manic tweeting these days has to do with trying to get more of the 18-49 group by being more "friendly" and available and sharing. {gag}

I have seen tons of birds that get along with their dog house mates. Hell I've seen a bird riding a dog.

You have to socialize your pets.

I remember my mother telling us that someone at her college asked a professor if she had seen another teacher lately, and she replied, 'I haven't had intercourse ( meaning a chat!) with Professor Smith for some two weeks!'

haha!

That's the same dilemma Milo has with Kate when she doesn't respond to her tweets.

===========

Hahahaha! Now I fear you've given Milo an idea, AuntieAnn. Milo will be at the nail salon, saying loudly, "I haven't had INTERCOURSE with Kate Gosselin in 5 days! Kate Gosselin and I LOVE to have intercourse together. I'm Kate's favorite to have intercourse with! Did I say her name was Kate Gosselin who I have intercourse with?"
