Recap: Celebrity Apprentice top moments and Episode 7: They think that we're through, but, baby, you'll be swell! You'll be great!

Before kicking off the final episodes of The Celebrity Apprentice, they treat us to a little clip show featuring, in short, their most "OMG!" momentsI could just skip this. But since watching this show is such a delicious guilty pleasure and these top moments helped make it so, it deserves a recap.

You would think Celebrity Apprentice is I-an what with how impressed they are with how wonderfully amazing they have been over the years. Look at all the celebrities, look at all the drama, look at all the crazy. Look at....Gary Busey. Just a warning, people like Gary Busey make the likes of Kate look like Dorothy Gale. Trump has never hesitated to put the true mentally ill on his cast, and predictably, antics always ensue.

We start with the top five feuds, and first up is none other than Geraldo getting into it with that chump of a Jonas brother Kevin. Lol, that was a good one indeed. Geraldo is ranting to Jonas about something or other and Jonas tells him there is a "five-second rule," you should wait five seconds before jumping into a conversation you just walked into. I thought the "five-second rule" is for when you drop your pizza, I think he's mixing this up. In any case, Geraldo feels lectured at, and storms out of the room still ranting and cursing. Hehe.


Next up, Nene, who surprisingly, I rather liked, and that idiot tool Star Jones. When Star Jones tried to tell Nene that Nene was going to be PM, Nene flipped out on her, accusing her of "playing her." Haha, I'd forgotten about Ivanka's face, which is basically like "ehhhh!"

At number three is Latoya Jackson and Omarosa, the original Apprentice villain and proof positive even the White House can make a hiring mistake. Things were going along just like a normal fight when Latoya made the fatal error of telling Omarosa to be quiet. Latoya's voice sounds the way I think a Precious Moments figurine's voice would sound. If they could speak.


I think what really made the fight so good was fellow contestant Lil John's commentary on it, explaining that when a black woman cocks her head to the side and puts her hand on her hip, which both women did almost simultaneously, you know there's trouble. Hehe.

Number two is Meatloaf vs. Garey Busey. I vividly remember this fight, and as I recall it was more frightening than funny, with Meatloaf about to burst a ventricle over this. The fight was over who moved my cheese, by the way. Or art supplies. Ultimately Meatloaf shed some man tears and the two hugged it out.

The number one fight was Omarosa again, this time versus Piers Morgan. When Piers said if Omarosa worked at the White House she must have been a cleaner, Omarosa walked over to him and calmly dumped an entire glass of champagne on his head. Hey, I have all the respect in the world for those who clean that particular house, that looks like hard work. The feud continued over the course of the season and even beyond, with Omarosa taking pot shots at his kids and making "your mama" jokes, and Piers calling her a tramp and making some snide remark about her natural habitat. Oy vey.

You know for all its trashiness, I don't think this is the worst reality show an older kid could watch. At least if your child watches one of these trashy feuds, you can say, now what do you think Jonas brother could do differently to collaborate with Geraldo? Or was Omarosa's reaction helpful or not helpful? Surprisingly, there's some lessons in teamwork to be found here. There's not much sex on this show or at least when there is it's all innuendo, and all of the swearing is bleeped out. Plus, consequences are shown for outrageous behavior. As in it often gets you fired, like Kenya. Those who keep it together, like Leeza, do well. It's one of those shows where the villain ultimately never wins, and that's good.

Next, we're going to look at some of Trump's favorite "fails." Hehe, hashtag failing!

Number four is our very own Kenya and her stupid King's Hawaiian buns on your buns campaign. The baby aspect of their campaign was super creepy and creeped out all the executives. While that was a really bad idea, I'm kind of surprised it made the top four. I know I've seen much worse on this show.

Number three deserves its spot. It's when Dennis Rodman signed off on misspelling Trump's wife's name, Melania, on all their graphics for a perfume campaign. He had it as Milania. Poor Brande Roderick had to present the screwed-up graphics to the panel, which included Melania herself. Funny how Brande acted like nothing was wrong nothing to see here, folks, yet you could practically watch the little bead of sweat dripping down her temple. I like the little "what-what???" double take Melania did when she saw the error, lol. Dennis must be joking trying not to get fired in this situation, not with Melania's husband in charge of who goes. He was toast from the moment he approved that little "i."

Number two is Clint Black's totally disgusting idea for a laundry detergent commercial. His video makes the suggestion that two parents would use the product as lube during sex. It's sort of a long story to get there that you don't need to know. Even Joan Rivers, who would not hesitate to make fun of pretty much anything, like even the deaf, thought the whole thing was "a disgrace." When Joan Rivers thinks you've gone too far, guess what, you've gone too far. Clint starred in the video, too. Ewww. The executives thought it was almost like porn, yuck. Which, it totally was.

The number one fail was Gary Busey's mechanical dog idea for an LG campaign, culminating in him barking at Trump in the boardroom. The biggest problem with this was it simply didn't make any sense. "I don't understand," poor Penn Jillette said, unable to control his giggles. Penn and Lisa Rinna, who are much smarter than the average contestant, tried their best to salvage this clusterfuck, but there was no turning back.

By the way introducing all these segments is Trump himself, looking less orange than usual, sitting on that silly leather red throne.

Next are the top four earners on this show. Ian vs. Geraldo collectively raised $600,000 on a wedding dress challenge. Ian lost by only $2,000, and because Braveheart and Mr. Peanut are gentlemen, they agreed to split the cash.

Out of the blue, Paul Teutul Sr.'s team raised over $332,000 selling sandwiches, with over $304,000 coming from Paul himself. Total dark horse. Paul gave the money to Make-a-Wish, and simultaneously put other reality stars to shame, proving even a D-lister can fundraise.

Number two is Trace Adkins's radical, though rather brilliant, idea to close their meatball shop to the general public and only open it to their big check donors. It makes so much sense I'm shocked no one else has done it since, although Geraldo has come close on his fundraising tasks. Don't waste anyone's time trying to schmooze and serve the general public, who may only bring in a few hundred dollars each tops. Everyone's efforts should be on working the phones and chasing down the high rollers. If the same amount of effort (or in some cases, less) is needed to collect $10,000 versus $100, it makes perfect sense to completely forget the $100's and only expend effort on the $10,000's. The plan worked, and over $400,000 was raised for the American Red Cross. By the way, that's what Brandi was trying to say when she complained about Kate spending so much energy schmoozing the general public at their pie shop. It doesn't help anything. In fact, it's a complete waste of time. The task was not to create the best pie shop restaurant, in which case what she did would be beneficial. The task was raise money, period. Unfortunately Kate skated by again that time, but Trace just proved that Brandi was spot owwwn. This was back in the days of two-hour episodes where they had time to actually show Trace presenting the check to the Red Cross right in the field, which was nice.

Number one is John Rich and my all-time favorite contestant of all, Marlee Matlin! For those who like to brush this show off as just a bunch of D-listers, stop right there. Yes, there are plenty of D listers filling in the gaps, but Trump's managed to book some real legends like Marlee, a brilliant actress and Oscar winner. Without a doubt Marlee is one of the greatest actresses of our generation, and certainly the greatest deaf actress there probably ever was. There are A-list celebs like Marlee out there who are not above doing this because it's for charity, any publicity is good publicity, and their ego isn't so inflated that they care about showing their face on a dumb T.V. show. (You can tell some people on this show are mortified they had to resort to this.)  Not only was Marlee sharp as a tack, but she was downright hysterical too, full of one-liners and zingers about her fellow contestants or the situations she found herself in, all delivered through her trusty interpreter and business partner, Jack Jason. As Stephen Hawking has an American accent that just seems to fit him, so too does Jack's clearly masculine voice somehow fit Marlee like a glove. Apparently, Marlee has been known to tell people, through Jack of course, that she can hear on Tuesdays. You know, just because she feels like messing with them. And who could forget her brilliant guest appearance on Seinfeld, in which George and Jerry ask her to use her talent for lip reading to spy on George's ex. "Sure, I'll do it!" Lol. For a deaf woman to have such a firm grasp of comedic timing without ever having "heard" a comedian deliver a joke, is really astounding.

Also, her face when that idiot Star Jones tried to whisper over her shoulder to her? Lol.
Rich proved he is a celeb who is sincerely interested in their charity by inviting a St. Jude patient to stop by. Little Collin was cute as a button. Together, Rich and Marlee raised 1.6 million dollars, with Marlee edging him out raising almost a million. With that, she became the celebrity who holds the record as most money ever raised by a celebrity in one sitting not just on this show, but any show. A lot of deaf children have state of the art hearing aids thanks to her. And that's a television legacy worth putting in the history books.

Next up is the top five boardroom backstabs, hehe. 

Naturally Joan Rivers's epic duel with Annie Duke is on the list at number five. Joan's insults were colorful as usual, stuff like, "this woman will spit and drown her mother in it" to get ahead. Heh. When Trump suggested Annie is nice, Joan retorted, "so was Hitler." Yipe! They don't show the best part of this feud that happened some time later, when Melissa eventually gets fired instead of Annie, and hobbles around in her walker boot because I guess she broke her ankle at some point, ranting and raving things like "whore" and such. Then Joan grabs her fur coat and gigantic purse and storms out in some kind of furious Mama bear rage. Joan Rivers had actually transformed into Rose Hovick right then. Good ole Joan, thanks for the best guilty pleasure cat fight ever and may you rest in peace.

Number four is Vincent Pastore vs. Piers Morgan. Wow, Piers is showing up a lot on these lists. I think he's quite good at getting under peoples' skin. He knows exactly what he's doing. Vincent was very upset that Piers made him spy on the women's team. It insulted his honor I suppose. And also it didn't help that Piers called him a fat Italian. This all ended with Vincent practically threatening to see to it Piers was offed, and I don't mean just off the show. I mean offed-offed. Well, that was a bit scary. I'd hate to see Piers have to be skirted away to Norway or something for his own protection!

Number three, Richard Hatch vs. David Cassidy. Well that alone is quite funny. I hope no one breaks a nail. It's a little confusing what this was about, but Richard says something about how he has been accused of picking on little people. What? Lol! That sends Nene, Lisa Rinna, and the rest of the women's team into absolute hysterics. Little people, lol! Hehe, that was funny. I think Richard meant picking on people more vulnerable, but little people is so synonymous with dwarfism these days I think that's the first thing most people think. Even Marlee can't help giggling. In other news, it's crazy how much that "I just wanna fly" guy Mark McGrath looks like Ethan Hawke. I bet he gets confused for him a lot in public, which I imagine is a blow to the ego.


Number two is from Kate's season, Kenya vs. Vivica. Yeah, that deserves a spot. Cell phone-gate, of course. Kenya took, sorry stole, Vivica's phone, tweeted about menopause, and then tried to pretend she had nothing to do with it. It took Vivica way too long to figure this out, especially given, you know, her phone was missing. When she finally solved the oh-so-complicated puzzle, boy was she ticked off at that "dirty-ass bitch" and "low-down dirty bird." Hehe, I guess Vivica really thinks Kenya needs a bath. Hard to imagine what will top this one, but here it is.

Piers Morgan vs. Omarosa again, of course. Omarosa said he was a terrible father, and Piers said she was trash. That fight was low I guess, but not nearly as interesting as say Rose Hovick vs. the Queen of Hearts or Vincent threatening to stick Whitey Bulger on Piers. Wow, Carol Alt is sheer elegance. I don't even think she's had much work done. She looks so out of place among these doofuses. Or doofi. She looks like how I imagine Duchess Kate will look at her age. You know, keeping it classy.


All these clips make me want to rewatch some of these seasons. I haven't seen them since they aired and some of them were so good!

Trump tries to explain he hates firing people. Please Trump, you love it. This show found its success on the "you're fired" tag line, remember when that was as popular as "hashtag winning!"?

The top five most memorable firings are:

Number five, firing that doofus Kevin Jonas. He made the absolutely suicidal choice of bringing a strong player into the boardroom, I-an, instead of who he should have brought back, the weaker Lorenzo. Except he made a huge mistake in assuming he was as strong as Ian. Oopsie. I guess this would have been an amazing strategic power play had he actually pulled it off, but since he didn't, it's nothing but a flat whoopee cushion.  This cherry-cheeked little doughboy couldn't have a bigger ego, and actually thought he could out-think Trump. You're fired!

Number four is what I consider an absolutely classic Apprentice firing. If you don't know why Celebrity Apprentice is the best bad show on television, this is the clip to watch. It's amazing how far Ivanka has come in just a few short years. What the hell is Ivanka rocking here? She's got her hair parted in these weird chunks on either side of her head, huge rectangle white earrings that look more like that missing piece to your blinds you've been looking for that fell behind the desk, and some sort of cape-like dark purple regal kind of ensemble. She's so much classier now, much simpler yet stylish. Girls, there is such a big difference in our styles between 25 and 30, can I get an Amen? Conversely, Trump looked much better back then, his hair a sort of brown shade the color a human might actually be able to grow on their own in the natural world.  Anyway, the crux of this is Trump practically told Gene Simmons who to bring back into the boardroom so that he could fire someone other than Gene, who for some odd reason Trump loves. Trump always loves the strangest people. But since Gene is Gene, instead he brought back two people who did nothing wrong on the task. Trump was so annoyed at the way Gene tied Trump's hands, you would think his eyes were going to squint right out of his head. Gene, I have no choice, you're fired.

The number three firing is kind of sad, in which Dennis Rodman admits he has a drinking problem which seems to be interfering with the game. The other contestants were rather supportive, which was nice. Hey, an Ed Hardy hat! Those were the days. Trump says Dennis let him down and lets him go. I quite like how Trump handled that situation, because I think it's usually better for addicts to hear that you really screwed up and I'm disappointed, as opposed to things like "I don't mind, don't worry, it's going to be okay."

Lol, number two is Ian's firing. Trump's reaction to his jingle was so funny just because it had to have been everyone's reaction at home too. Wtf, that's La Cucaracha! Lol. Ian gaslights so hard that you can smell it. I still laugh when Eric tells his dad yes Dad you're right, and Trump just replies, "Good son." You're fired!

Oh, number one is Melissa getting fired instead of Annie Duke, and hobbling around in her boot while Mom storms out behind her. No wonder they didn't include this epic clip earlier, that explains it. They were saving it for now! At one point there is so much cursing/bleeping going on all I can make out is ----- lying ----- horse------. They think that you're through, baby, but you'll be swell! In honor of Rose Hovick here, I give you the greatest stage mother of them all, Rosalind Russell as Rose singing "Everything's Coming up Roses."

Finally we do an overview of the winners, which are Piers Morgan, who was a high roller with no shame whose tactics were pretty aggressive. That's generally a sure way to get to the end on this show. The next winner was Joan Rivers. She didn't quit for good after all, she came back with an incredible focus and drive and used her wits and experience in all things showbiz to beat out her nemesis Annie Duke. I think Joan Rivers is just a classic example of how you don't need to be the prettiest girl in the room, or the smartest, or the tallest, or the most stylish.  But, you do need to be the hardest working if you don't have that. Fill up your calendar all day every day with work. And if you work damn hard at it, I mean writing-down-and-cataloguing-every-single-joke-you-ever-thought-of hard, you can get good at anything. In fact, better than everyone else eventually when it all shakes out. Malcolm Gladwell agrees.

Brett Michaels was the next winner. He was a bit softer spoken than most other winners, but he was darn determined. He beat Holly Robinson Peete, who is as sharp as they come. Apparently, she's a gem. I know one of her son's teachers, and she says Holly once invited the entire class all over to their mansion for a pool party, teachers and all. They're good people.

John Rich was the next winner. I was disappointed Marlee Matlin didn't win, but there's no denying that John was a tough, smart, work horse type player. It was quite possibly the hardest choice Trump ever had to make, given John and Marlee were easily the best players to ever, ever grace this show then and now. But for John on that season, it would have been Marlee.

Arsenio Hall won his season next, which I was pleased with for the simple fact that I didn't really like Clay Aiken that much. As I recall, Clay was very patronizing and not as good as he thought he was.

Trace Atkins won next, another softer-spoken winner but work horse and good fundraiser. He was willing to try some pretty risky ideas, and they paid off. He played the game to win, which is generally how you win, wouldn't you know it. See, good guy always wins. 

We're finally up to this current season, here we go! Last time on Celebrity Apprentice, Ian's nuttiness finally caught up, and their jingle absolutely sucked. Leeza and Vivica came up with a much better jingle, with a few lines from Geraldo that actually worked, the executives couldn't even find anything wrong with their jingle, and Team Vortex finally wins after five straight losses.

Trump fired the entire other team, Brandi, Ian and Johnny, which was bullshit, but I'm over it.

Vivica, Leeza and Geraldo are waiting in the suite to find out who got fired, and nobody is coming back. Leeza says it's been hours now.  I completely forgot about the fact that if everybody gets fired, no one will come back to tell them what happened. So they're sitting here thinking this must be the most agonizing decision of Trump's life, hehe! I guess a producer will have to tell them at some point.

Finally the phone rings. Leeza approaches it like she's about to dismantle a bomb, lol, she's so scared. "Team Vortex?" she says as she picks it up. Hehe, that's just adorable. If you're going to play this game, you might as well just get into it.

Trump's receptionist says he wants them in the boardroom. "At least it's not Vladimir Putin," Geraldo says. Heh, current events jokes. Welcome to the nerds club.

Poor things, they must be wondering if he's going to fire them too or something. They all seem pretty happy the other team got offed, which surprises me. I thought they all liked Brandi and Johnny and would at least miss them.

Trump puts them on the spot right there and then and says he's going to pick the final two now, and starts asking them questions like why they should be the next Apprentice. So in essence, four people will get fired in one sitting. I have a feeling this has far more to do with Trump being ordered by NBC to tighten up this season so they can streamline it into just a few short weeks, rather than Trump seriously wanting to off four people at once. A mass firing is a quick and easy way to cut things down without any fuss, done.

Can I just say that I hate this aspect of reality shows when it happens? You know, the interview. It's like watching a senior in college meet the boss for the first time at a real job. It's always so awkward and amateur. British Apprentice devotes an entire episode to the interview each season, and it's like nails on a chalkboard to me. Something awful or awkward always happens, always. Even if someone can interview well, they're so darn nervous and put on the spot it never ends well. I don't think I've ever seen a single interview under these circumstances go well.

Vivica says lame stuff like she has more to learn from Trump, and since Geraldo and Leeza are the smartest on this cast, they very slyly team up against Vivica to try to get her fired. Very sharp to team up after the weaker player.

Then Vivica does something completely nuts and says that Leeza is a better player than her, she can't lie. What is with this season? I've never seen so many contestants fall on the sword for each other, from Lorenzo to Brandi to now Vivica. There was clearly some kind of bizarre and intense bonding going on in the suites during production, with some of these people absolutely adamant they've come out of it friends for life. I've never seen anything like it on this show.

Even Leeza looks shocked and is like, what, no, don't do it!

Trump seems to accept Vivica's letter of resignation and even sort of respects her for it, and fires her. Sigh, I don't get that. There is so much more money to potentially win for your charity. It's one thing to quit when Lorenzo did, but you made it to the top three! Why quit now? That's crazy. I definitely put the odds that this was completely set up and scripted as just a quick way to get rid of Vivica, at about 60-40. It's that blatantly scripted. It's so hard to imagine Vivica doing that out of the blue, especially when she had no idea two minutes ago why they were even in the boardroom in the first place. She just thought of this as she was sitting there? Odd. Even if she truly did just decide to do this, this should not be something you decide in two minutes. It's too big of a decision to quit, and too much is at stake for your charity. She didn't think about this carefully, there's no way she did, and for that she disappoints.

For the final task Trump is sending them to Florida on his private jet (ha-ha, suck it, Kate) to make a commercial about Univeral. Okay, I am now convinced Geraldo thinks autistic is pronounced "artistic." He's said it that way about five times now. Malaprop confirmed. What a doofus.

Note that Trump said they should invite all of their celebrity friends. All! Aw, think somebody will invite Doofus?

Trump says the money raised is just going to be one factor, he will judge them on a bunch of other things too. I like that so much, it's so much more fair. Being a good fundraiser is a nice skill but an Apprentice should be much more well-rounded than that. Plus Leeza is screwed if it's only about money, and perhaps this was set up from the get-go for her to win, so they can't have that.

Leeza and Geraldo have sort of a journalist's code going on between them. Leeza emphasizes that they've known each other forever, which doesn't surprise me. They may both report on a lot of entertainment news and pop culture and perhaps aren't taken that seriously, but they are both among the pioneers of modern television journalism, and that's a small world. This is a gentleman's duel to them, and even if you end up shot you will still shake your opponent's hand and say good fight. Since when did this show get so darn civil?

All right, I'll allow myself to be "just jelluz" of this jet. Airplanes have become such disgusting cattle cars these days, how nice it must be to be the only two passengers on your own little shuttle. Leeza and Geraldo board and set off in style to Orlando. I find Geraldo's mustache really gross up close. It looks like a brillo pad. Ew, stop twisting it.

Geraldo seems to think his charity is the only one to have the idea of getting the mentally disabled out of institutions. He acts like everybody else must stay in a giant 800-bed hospital in the polluted part of town. That's not the case at all, not in 2015. There are group homes everywhere now. In certain communities like mine where zoning allows for it, you can find one on every corner and they often just look like someone's house. And in fact many autistic people live at home with family. I don't think it's that he doesn't realize this, or is deliberately lying. I think it's that he is one of those who just says things and lives his own truth without really being concerned with whether it's really factual or not. He's rather like a politician, actually. Only what is he running for? To be "the best," I suppose.

Woo-hoo, some of the fired contestants are back to help and it's not Kate, baw-hahhaha! I absolutely love that Kate is not included in this. Brandi, Johnny and Jonas brother will be on Leeza's team. Of course Jonas brother feels he has so much more to show and give. Well, we've definitely seen all sides of that silly little ego of his, I wonder what else he could possibly have in there.

Leeza has a good idea to do a "memories" theme, which ties in nicely with her Alzheimer's charity. She is going to try to get Olivia Newton John to come sing for her. Okay, Olivia Newton John is totally in the same group of friends I know who know Leeza. See, they really are true friends, and have been so for decades. I never met Olivia or Leeza, but I heard so much about them I felt like I had. Olivia was the type who preferred to have people over at her house instead of going to somebody else's, so people were always flocking over there. Of course since I was mostly friends with the "kids" in this family not the adults, us kids would end up staying behind while the old folks had all the fun off with the celebs. Olivia's daughter who is my age was trying to build her own music career. Some of my college friends who had videography experience helped her out with making some music videos and things like that. Chloe was a nice girl, I don't think she ever made it though like she wanted to. Like many children of celebrities, she doesn't have that same unexplainable spark her mom does. She is pretty and talented, but so are lots of people. It takes something more than that. It is tough to be in the shadow of someone like Olivia. Anyway, my two degrees of separation to Leeza is turning out to be good fun.

I guess the only worry I would have here is that Olivia Newton John, as nice of a woman she is, is kind of dated. I'm not even sure many younger folks know who she is. I don't know if she has the kind of broad appeal that would attract a broad audience. Leeza admits Olivia is a friend but doesn't disclose that Olivia is one of her best friends, nor does she have to disclose that, but I know that in fact she is, and I wonder if that is coloring her judgement.

Ian, Vivica and Lorenzo will be on Geraldo's team. Haha, that's two contestants fired before Kate who are back to help, Lorenzo and Jonas brother. Where is Doofus? How do the sheeple explain this oversight?

In the past, celebs have picked from a selection of former contestants, schoolyard style. I really wanted to see Kate have to stand there and not be picked and hobble herself home empty handed in coach. But I suppose it's just as much fun to imagine the producers not even giving her the phone call to show up for the pick in the first place. I wonder how long she waited by the phone for that call to never come like she does when the kids go to Jon's.

Geraldo is not so happy to have Lorenzo and Ian on his team since he didn't really get along with either of them. Ian says look, he was trying to get Geraldo out of this game since day one, but it didn't work out. That doesn't mean he's not going to work darn hard for him. That's how a mature adult handles such a situation, of course. That's a big reason why Kate flew under the radar for so long, because better players like Ian were much more worried about the big fish.

I do have to say Leeza has the much stronger team when it comes to brainstorming ideas. Geraldo's ideas are always lame, and they already sound lame here, with Geraldo acting as a reporter who leads the kids into the Harry Potter thing. He will even dress up as Harry. Geriatric Harry I guess? Oh, yeah, kids will love to follow after a creepy old Harry Potter growing an ill-advised mustache. Geez, Geraldo, think.

Back to Leeza's team, and they're hashing out their good ideas. Leeza is so much better than anyone else on this season's show it's embarrassing. She fits right in with the likes of Marlee and John.  She's using buzzwords like axis point and hook that smart people realize is important to hit on in a project like this. This is about more than just putting together a video. It's about understanding what makes a commercial work, and then executing that. Leeza gets that. Few other doofuses on this show would.

Jonas has a rather great idea of an over-scheduled Dad who finally learns to relax at Universal. It's simple and I'm pretty sure it's been done before, but it's completely effective. They meet with the executives who are going to let them film in the park.

Ian is extremely proud of himself for coming up with questions that Leeza's team didn't think of to ask the executives. Lol, he's a trip. Geraldo's ideas have to do with "inner hero" as a theme, buzzwords the executives actually used. Not bad either.

I'm shallow and notice Jonas brother is so pale and doughy just walking around, I wish he would just pick one and either grow a beard or shave it off, and his style is just downright dowdy with lots of sweaters and patterned pastel shirts. I can see him maturing into a completely ugly 35-year-old man and terrible dresser. And, he's proven to be a tool. The kids these days could do so much better.

I guess they are scouting a bit at a pool and Leeza's friend calls in with a big donation which excites her greatly. Wow, there are a fuckety-million (shoutout to Tucker!) fans everywhere staring and taking photos. I guess it's not every day you were just going to get on the Tilt-a-Whirl and you bumped into Leeza Gibbons and a Jonas brother instead.

Tee-hee, Brandi and Johnny play hooky to go get some beer and hot dogs. I love them. Jonas thinks he needs to get a leash for them like his parents did to him. His parents put him on a leash? That explains a lot. What's next, they killed his pet bunnies too? Geez. Leeza's kind of like whatever let's not worry about where they are. Because let's be honest Leeza is running this show and whether anyone else shows up to the party doesn't really concern her that much. I mean she appreciates the help but she could run it on her own too, so it doesn't matter to her. I find it interesting to see how differently Leeza and Jonas brother reacted to two teammates gone missing. Leeza doesn't let something like that distract her for a second. Certainly throughout her career lots of people have not been up to snuff but if she spent all her time worrying about them it would only hurt herself, and she's smart enough to know it. On the other hand, Jonas brother is young, naive, dumb, and a stickler for the rules. He is very concerned with others, what they're up to, and the kind of weight they are pulling, so hot dog and beer-gate bothers him so much more and holds him back from doing what he needs to do. I think it's obvious which approach is more successful.

Haha, Brandi and Johnny are actually in fact doing absolutely nothing, just chit-chatting and drinking. I wonder what led up to this. Were they just like, "Eehhh, I'm bored, you? It's not like we're getting fired so, fuck it, right? Hot dog?" Lol, so great.

Geraldo seems much more concerned with the selling/donation part of this task in which they have to sell vacation packages. This is kind of bad because Ian has already tapped most of his donors for ridiculous amounts, and Lorenzo and Vivica aren't going to be much help.

I think Geraldo would look so much better if he just cut about two inches off his hair. He's just so shaggy and it's not attractive. Geraldo goes back to his old standbys at Fox and such and seems to be making a bit of headway.

Over at Leeza's team, Brandi and Johnny have full bellies and are perhaps slightly tipsy but ready to work. Leeza is explaining that she is going to send them back to the park for something or other. Oh nice, they could go for hot dog number two. Lol, speaking of food, there's a huge half-eaten hamburger and fries in front of Brandi and Johnny, too. Taking a page from Kate there I see, hehe. You can tell how much more relaxed Brandi is now that she has nothing on the line. She's more like how she is on her housewife show, just sort of floating along kind of a hot mess. Apparently she really thrives when something is at stake. Not so much when all there is to do is eat the free food, get filmed doing so, and lend a hand if you can.

Leeza taps some of her previous donors and scores another big donation.

Brandi says she has never met a kinder person who never once has not given 100%. That is so lovely to hear. Leeza is exactly the sort of celebrity who benefits astronomically from a stint on this show in terms of their good will and image. People who know her know she is the greatest and they've told other people like me how cool she is, but news doesn't travel far in this case and other than that small group I don't think anyone else really had a clue who Leeza is other than that she can explain the entertainment news of the day to you in an orderly fashion. Now thanks to this show, millions know her as one of the nicest, kindest, most genuine celebrities there ever was. It has been nothing but good for her.

Conversely, Jonas brother is clearly a fool, and there is no way I would have realized that before this show or even thought much on him. I guarantee I will never be able to hear the surname Jonas again without thinking of what a doofus Kevin was on this show.

Leeza says she's not going to worry about Geraldo because her mother once told her to stay in her lane and do not look at the other horses running the race. That's wise. Bless her dear mother's wonderful heart and may she rest in peace. And that's another thing that makes Leeza great. She listens to Mom.


Jonas brother actually has a good point in that they're probably not going to beat Geraldo on fundraising any day of the week but that's okay because the task is also about the creative side, where they can smoke him. I give him credit for keeping Leeza focused on her strengths and not worry about the part of the task she's not going to beat Geraldo at. He's right, don't waste too much time on something that's a wash. Focus on where you can make the most difference and win that way.

Vivica and Lorenzo go off to scout Universal for Geraldo's team. I remember Lorenzo is a strong director so Geraldo may have more of an edge on this than I thought. This part is sort of like a mini commercial for Universal hidden within the show. It used to bother me shows did this but since this has happened for over ten years from now I think I've come to accept it. I get it, product placements are just a part of reality shows now.

Back in the war room Geraldo is trying to figure out who his entertainment will be. What, Ian who has a rolodex the size of a small country doesn't have any good rock bands up his sleeve? You mean he doesn't even know a guy who knows a guy....who knows another guy? Hehe.


That was a little shoutout to Better Call Saul, probably one of the best shows on television this spring. Even though I loved the character of Saul on Breaking Bad and appreciated the attention to detail, at the same time I felt it was one of the show's weaker points, just because it got a little hokey at times, silly, not believable. I expected his spinoff show to be like that, but thankfully it's really not. This latest episode exploring Saul's "guy" Mike's roots, and how his police career ended, almost plays out like a really good Breaking Bad fan fiction with overarching themes like fathers and sons and how far you will go to avenge a wrong against someone you loved. It's a show for fans, for sure, and it's very, very good. Dare I say they've improved on the memorable lawyer character by leaps and bounds.

Geraldo thinks he might be able to get Josh Groban, but he's not sure. And this is why Geraldo is such a bad-idea idiot, he says if they can't get Josh maybe they could sing themselves. Oh good, Lord. No, Geraldo. Just no.

Yep, Geraldo is just as creepy as I imagined dressed up like Harry Potter.

Lorenzo calls him the X factor. Yeah, pretty much.

Leeza nails down Olivia Newton John, who is ready to hop on a plane right now and come out. That's because she and Leeza are actually best friends in real life. They kind of play it like Leeza can't believe she would do this, but dollars to donuts I bet they had an arrangement Olivia would help her out on the last task if needed. It's too coincidental somebody who always has a full calendar would be so available.

Johnny and Brandi are supposed to be shopping but get bored again and decide to take a roller coaster ride, lol. I wish they cared a little bit more about focusing on helping Leeza, but they're funny just the same. This is also another mini commercial for Universal of course. Brandi is excited about how big her boobs look in the photo they took of them on the roller coaster. Yep, that's Brandi. They come back empty handed? Haha. Because Leeza is never stopped by anything going wrong, she just laughs this off and moves on. She has no time for this. That is because she is a rockstar who would never let antics like this stop her for a second.

Jonas brother, on the other hand, is quietly brooding over all this, getting more annoyed the more Brandi and Johnny goof off. What does he care? If Leeza is not mad what right does he have to be upset? It's not his project. See as I explained before, for him it's about keeping score and making sure it's "fair" and that everyone pulls their weight and petty stuff like that. You can worry about that if you like, but it's usually a waste of time and isn't going to change people who don't feel like stepping up. All it does is slow you down. What a shame he doesn't see that.

Over at Geraldo's team, Geraldo has already set up the first shot for the commercial, and it's completely different than what Lorenzo has meticulously planned out. Lorenzo can't believe he did that without him there. It's all wrong. This is where Geraldo's ego gets in the way. He doesn't really trust Lorenzo, or anyone, to do their jobs. He actually thinks it's just better if he does it. What a fool. Even Ian and Vivica can't believe the way Geraldo is ignoring all of the pre-production planning. That is super annoying, as Lorenzo and Vivica spent all day planning this all and now Geraldo is just scrapping it. They are right about this, there was no point in them going to all that trouble all day only to be ignored. If Geraldo had no intentions of using their pre-production work, he shouldn't have had them do that in the first place.

Hehe, Lorenzo does his impression of Vivica, holding up a finger and saying, "This is not somethin' that is on the shot list! Uh-emm!" Lol.

Leeza's team begins shooting their actor family, with that doofus Jonas as Mr. DeMille. Well that's one of the few bad moves I've seen Leeza make. What in the world does he know about this?

Back at Geraldo's team, they are setting up the shot where Geraldo acts as a reporter. Geraldo has given the reins back to Lorenzo fortunately, and things are running much smoother. That is until they can't find the child actors they've hired to be in the shot. Oops. Apparently the actors aren't even on site, they were sent to their war room to wait. They waste a lot of time trying to assign blame for this. That was a huge screw up. It kind of sounds like maybe it was Vivica's fault, but it also sounds like it was an overall communication breakdown. Who really knows, who really cares.

From now on I'm in charge of every shot, Geraldo announces. Oh, yeah, that will improve things, hehe.

Next time, the finale. Leeza vs. Geraldo with Doofus and the other contestants returning, Live!!!

Hulu is free for one month, offer ends the 23rd.

Jana Duggar is reportedly leaving the show, 19 Kids and counting, home and going to start applying to Christian colleges. I hope this is true!!!

It also said that Jim Bob has repeatedly tried to talk her out of it but she is not backing down. I remember not to long ago they sent her to an indoctrination camp for Gothard believers, because she was not wanting to court to get married and she turned down Zack Bates. It is time for Michelle to start raising her own kids instead of Jana who has been doing it for 20 years.

Would she take it?

Anonymous said...

Well good for Jana Duggar, if this is indeed true. With her sisters out and married, starting their own families, perhaps being the oldest Duggar daughter in charge of raising all those younger children has made her see the light. Or at least given her the gumption to have a life of her own.

Oh, Orange Crusher, I hope it is true. That girl has been Cinderella for years. Cleaning, cooking, changing diapers, sewing family clothes, babysitting, bathing and then not even have a bedroom of her own.

There is a boys room and a girls room. All the girls from when Michelle passes the baby on for the girls to take care of all sleep in one room. A baby to ages 25. Even Jinger said that she wanted to be a photographer and wanted to go to NYC. And wow, Jill jumped on that, like how dare you have thoughts of the Big City! Jill has an IV of the Duggar Kool-Aid.

That poor girl graduated from the School of the Dining Room Table at 16 and for the last 9 years has been a teen mom, plus all the housework. Since Jill and Jessa have left to start their own, Jana will have more responsibilities because Michelle doesn't believe in raising her own children.

Rhythm Of Life said...

Probably because her family ignores her, and her friends pull out in the middle of the night with no forwarding address or phone number. And yes, when you think about it, it really is sad. However, she's so annoying and obnoxious that she has nobody to blame but herself. Or is it a Catch-22? She has no friends because she's a pest, or is she a pest because her family and friends ignore her? Milo is a conundrum.

Whatever it is, she craves attention from internet strangers, and Kate is a stranger even though she considers her a best friend forever but has never met her.

I'm not sure I even believe Milo is as ill as she says or ill at all. I think we can probably guess why she doesn't have the family and friends she could talk to. It gets old. There are plenty of people who are ill or suffering. She is not special.

The constant desperation for attention is very annoying, even if you are legitimately ill. People on the internet don't want to hear it any more than her friends or family probably do.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Read about the narcissism study when it came out. It's common sense that the way so many people coddle children is ruining them, and it's not the first study to confirm it.

Anyone see Whiplash? Really loved that movie. The worst thing you can say to somebody is good job, so the movie says. Of course I think that teacher took it way too far, but in terms of pushing someone to be their best I think it's better to be harder on people than lax. What's funny is as nasty as Kate can be to her kids she is also a coddler, always amazed at their tiny milestones and claiming they are top of the class and thinks they're the funniest smartest kids ever when it's clear to any objective viewer they're just average. She also consistently brushes off their sometimes horrific behavior as just teens or whatever. She is doing them no favors.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Nobody is asking because nobody cares, that's the honest truth. That's actually narcissism too, for Milo to value herself so highly that she actually thinks a bunch of people on twitter would care what's going on with her. And then when they don't care, she pouts like a child.

Rhythm Of Life said...

Do people like Milo know how annoying they are, or don't they care? Is there no self-awareness at all? The psychology of it all is very interesting. This craving for attention is pathetic and even borders of pathological, manifesting itself in the butting in on Kate's Twitter, asking personal questions, begging for responses by whatever means she can use (platitudes, animal pictures, illnesses and pain), setting herself up as Kate's personal mouthpiece .Because she tries everything and anything to get Kate's attention, perhaps this is why her illness and severity of it may be questioned.

Or maybe we're over-thinking it. It could be she's just one of those people who are pestiferous and always will be!

Ph without the D isn't Milo. I don't think we've come up with any nicknames for Milo.

Ph without the D goes by My2BorderCollies (or something very similar) on Twitter. She's the pathological liar--went to school w/5 identical quintuplets, blew HUGE hole in her heart, etc. Some call her Marie, some call her Lexxi, some used to call her BeHappy or BDyin (because of her supposed heart problem) because of an old Twitter account she had.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Former contestants themselves have described extremely long hours on the set. It is certainly not 9 to 5. More like 16 hour days.

If he went home like he claims, he may have been skipping out on help with some of the tasks, like when Brandi stayed up all night memorizing facts about Trump's resort or Geraldo was contacting donors late into the night. And how did he go home every night when he was in Florida? Or did he fly down a four week old baby there? He's lying.

Jonas brother is a rich celebrity who didn't need this job. He didn't have to do it to see to it his family had food on the table. That's different.

Jeremy said...

Jonas lives about 40 minutes from the city. He probably stayed in the city on some late nights, but his commute is one that people in Bergen Couty, NJ do every day. And with a new baby at home to support, he probably needed the money and exposure of TV.

Whoa TFW! Breathe! This had happened to me before. I give the honkers the benefit of the doubt and assume the driver behind me or two or three cars behind can't SEE what I'm breaking for, as I have been the car behind someone stopped and couldn't see what they were stopping for. I doubt anyone is honking at you to plow someone over and commit vehicular manslaughter. Geez. More than likely, they didn't realize what you were stopped for.

Some of the best advice I got in drivers' ed class I've never forgotten is that if someone is stopped always assume they are stopping FOR someone or something. Never assume it's because they are zoning out or whatever, and do something dumb like go around them and slam into what they stopped for. I would add to that if someone is honking at you, assume they can't see what you're seeing and relax.

Tucker's Mom said...

Wow, this is great!
I'm watching Pioneer Woman (marathon on Food TV) and they're doing the "First Annual Drummond Ranch Games", and it looks like so much fun FOR THE KIDS (cousins ,too).
The KIDS are trying to collect bow tied ribbons from calf tails (different colors for different points) and bobbing for apples on horses (gallop to, get off and bob, gallop back), and Ree is cheering the KIDS on.
None of this "sorry, I'm bigger and faster than you so I won" bullshit.

They also did gunny sack races where Ree and DH competed, too, but there's absolutely no advantage to being full-grown for that game. They sort of all had a tie.

Roping the calf mock-up was all KIDS.

I just watch this and it makes Kate's need to compete with her kids all the more pathetic.
Oh, none of the kids was prideful or resentful, no matter who won.
It was just fun for all.

When Ree did compete, it was with her SIL, another adult, milking goats.
That wouldn't happen on the Gosselin compound. No, not because they don't have goats, but because there's no family around to have fun with.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Jonas brother should have multi-millions from his alliance with Disney and numerous other ventures including tours and a reality show of his own. He was one of the most popular bands just a few short years ago. If he needed the money that badly he has not properly saved and invested what he has already made, and that's his fault.

I'm glad he was only 40 minutes away and could get home to his two-week-old and his tired wife, thought it probably wasn't for long what with that filming schedule. Maybe that's why he couldn't comment on the Steve hotel thing if he didn't stay there.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Ree doesn't try to one-up her children. She lets them be the star, she gets them involved with a wide variety of activities that are good for their own growth and development. She is not in some kind of bizarre unhealthy competition with her children and certainly doesn't hold them back from spreading their wings. She understands at this age she's pretty much the driver and cook, and embraces that. If you don't like that, don't become a mother. It is obvious this dynamic has fostered an incredible bond between her and the kids you just can't fake. I have never seen the Gosselin kids look at Kate like Ree's boys look at her. They just adore her.

She is also a woman who has developed numerous interests other than her children, which is also healthy for everyone.

Of course I think that teacher took it way too far, but in terms of pushing someone to be their best I think it's better to be harder on people than lax. What's funny is as nasty as Kate can be to her kids she is also a coddler, always amazed at their tiny milestones and claiming they are top of the class and thinks they're the funniest smartest kids ever when it's clear to any objective viewer they're just average

When I read the latest Twittersode from Kate:

Kate Gosselin ‏@Kateplusmy8 3h3 hours ago
Last pm at bedX, we stated 'I love u with all my ❤️' which led to listing every body part we could each think of. List bc LONG! #GoodMemory

...it sounds very babyish for 11-year olds, moreover, 14-year olds, but I'm assume M+C weren't playing this childish game.

Am I being harsh here? Do 11-year olds sound like this (Kate tweets these juvenile things a lot)?

OMG, that's rich, just rich- from the woman who repeatedly parks in NO PARKING-FIRE LANE zones because she's too special to park in a designated spot.
Not to mention her dangerous and potentially deadly evasive maneuvers witnessed many times, including speeding, turning off her lights at night while careening around an exit at high speeds, and disregarding traffic signs and patterns.

Milo "surfaced"..maybe she tried to off herself in a bathtub.

Most likely she has the dread "fibromyalgia", OD'd on her pain meds and has been crying, depressed for the past week.

So sKate's nasty tweets about Leeza when CA started airing just shows ta go ya that she can't even see the obvious: That Leeza was going to be the winner or at the very least, in the final two. Heck, I've never watched the show before and I had Leeza down for a finalist after the first episode. Had she any inkling, she'd have been kissing her ass.

Sue Buddy (#24), I know which ewe is which! Sometimes I call
Gladys TFW's "biggest fan," just to deprive her of the extra thrill
I think she gets when she sees herself referenced here at the
COH (cesspool of hate).

I was trying to say that Gladys had gone off to pout in the corner, waiting for the groundswell of interest and concern about her whereabouts. But instead, Marie started getting extra attention.
So Gladys must've realized she was cutting off her nose to spite
her face, and decided to jump back in the fray -- with her own
medical issues to babble about (if only anyone would ask about
them).

Exactly, I think most people saw that she was headed in the fast lane for the finals.

But I bet a million bucks Kate never saw that coming. I think she thought it was going to be herself and Geraldo. Thus, Leeza was expendable.

It's amazing how obtuse she can be.

Plus, what did Leeza ever do to her?? Leeza was nothing but pure kindness to everyone on the show, never once was mean to Kate. Kate's tweets to her were so uncalled for.

Yes and instead of being a mature woman and saying thank you so much Leeza for your help you're a rockstar, like people like Johnny and Brandi did when Leeza's similarly helped them in a pinch, Kate slams her.

That's exactly what Leeza did to Kate.
Kate looks like an angered mean girl with her #tooscared bs.
Leeza is nothing but intrepid.
On top of that, Leeza's account was corroborated by Kate's team and Kevin Jonas, who made it clear that he did not lose to Kate Gosselin, but to Leeza Gibbons.
As a viewer, I don't think that it was just the edit that made Kate look ineffectual, at best, as PM of that task.

If I recall, she said she has a degenerative bone disease. I can't remember the name, though. Someone here has said what it is. She had surgery, though, a few years ago. That's when they couldn't tell her Kate's show was canceled or it would set her way back in her rehab.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Just read Kelly Clarkson's People cover story. She said this
about motherhood: "When the focus isn't on you, it changes
your perspective."

That eloquent statement gave me insight into why I think TFW is
a lousy mother: she only wants the focus on her. Once she
became pregnant with the 6, the spotlight began to shine on her,
and I think she's craved it ever since. She was waited on hand
and foot during her eleventybillion weeks of bedrest, while the
twins were being taken care of by their grandparents.

Whether she had 1 kid or 100, the focus would always be on
her. So many of us have commented on how she never looks
genuinely joyful or content in the presence of her children.
But put her on a red carpet -- alone in the spotlight -- and
she lights up like Christmas morning.

I'm remembering that it is something serious for which there is no cure. Avascular necrosis or Osteonecrosis?

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I just remembered something from one of the"special days"
J&K episodes, when each kid got some alone time with
his/her parents (except TFW bailed on the boys' days).

TFW was alone in the car with C, and said something
really sweet and tender, like, "I could just sit here all
day and look at your face." Kind of acknowledging
that they don't get much alone time. It was an intimate
moment. But in the end, it wasn't intimate at all, because
TFW wasn't really alone with C -- there was an entire
production crew present. And that tender moment was
essentially "sold" to TLC as part of an episode, and is
probably only a few clicks away for anyone's viewing
pleasure on youtube.

I think putting her children's private lives on display --
and relentlessly continuing to do so -- is going to cause
irreparable damage to their hearts and souls. TFW is
still in denial about that, but there will be symptoms and
consequences down the road which she won't be able
to ignore.

Orange crusher: Jessa Duggar has been wearing PANTS!, There are 2 pics of her wearing pants! I guess her hubby told her he wanted her to wear pants. After all, the husband is the boss in their world. I also noticed that Jessa's brother was wearing those baggy shorts, so was Ben. Remember how Jimbob ran a race with long jeans on, cause it ain't modest to wear shorts, cause some woman might get the hots. That Ben wears very tight t-shirts & pants. I think that Jessa is one Duggar daughter who has her own mind to a point. Yea! for her wearing pants!!!!!

Totally off topic. Feel free to scroll on by.Our little area made Yahoo news! An E-town teacher was impaled in her car for six hours and survived. A metal rod from a boat hitch when through her windshield, entered her side and lodged in the car seat. I know that road well, and it's not a deserted area way out in the boonies. I can't understand that in six hours nobody drove past her, saw the accident (the car was totaled) and never stopped or reported it.

Maybe it's different depending upon what area you live, but if I ever went to pick up my teen from a sporting event and he said, "Gotta go. My mommy is here" his friends would torment him about it until the end of time! I think, though, that girls hang on to the "mommy" thing longer than boys.

Flimsy, you asked what are you missing? ""#Good Memory?" Because her almost-11-year-olds can
list all the parts of their bodies?"

You missed that her kids were professing their love to her. I immediately thought it was a spin on the goodnight theme of the Waltons. They go around the house saying goodnight to each other. Well, according to Kate, their family: "Last pm at bedX, we stated 'I love u with all my ❤️' which led to listing every body part we could each think of." It probably started off with I love you with all my heart and then somebody else said I love you with all...fill in the blank. And being kids they probably ended up saying I love you with all my legs, etc. Don't try to make sense of it though. It is beyond stupid. But Kate had to tweet it to let the world know how much her kids professed their love to her in so many ways.

The first series order will be for eleven episodes and will star Jennings, who has been called "The New Face of Transgender Youth," as she enters high school, makes friends, and navigates the world that is around for a transgender teen."

The following is an excerpt from ParentDish magazine. It was linked on yesterday's Huffington Post along with a picture of Pamela Anderson and one of her teenaged sons (who rarely appears in public).

This snippet explains the difference in parenting between Pamela and Kate and a possible explanation as to why Anderson kept her distance from TFW during DWTS.


Until now, Anderson has worked hard to keep her sons out of the public eye. "I protected them. I did not drag them down red carpets," she recalled in an interview with Healthy Living magazine. "They had no desire to be famous. I was strictly against them being photographed. They weren't props.

Jon out on a Saturday night drinking and perhaps kissing a younger

home, leaving her children (one of whom was visibly upset), going
out to a club to drink some more, letting a stranger lick her foot,
and waking up hungover the next day -- all of this while the
cameras rolled? That gets my vote for which parent the kids are
unluckier to have.

Jon gets approached all the time for photo ops.
Personally, I can't stand when women throw themselves at any guy that's famous, but they do.
If Jon is in a bar, whether as a patron, or working in some capacity, this is going to happen.
I can't get worked up over Jon having a love/sex life.
I'm assuming said blonde isn't married ;-)

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

My issue with Kate taking off to NYC had more to do with how shocked and saddened the kids were that she took off on them than anything else. She didn't prepare them for it because apparently it was a "surprise," and Cara especially was horrified she was just abandoning them that weekend. What's more, they filmed the children being so upset and used it as part of the storyline. That was wrong. Terribly wrong.

Had Kate decided to go to a local bar on her birthday, prepared the children for this in advance, and left them with a babysitter they loved and trusted for a few hours with NO FILMING, and didn't exploit it for an episode, I wouldn't care.

I went to a lovely traditional pub on vacation and it was more like a community center. People brought their babies! It was more just a hangout. We often meet friends at this place that has pool tables and ping pong and serves pizza, I usually don't drink because I'm getting up early the next day or whatever. Most bars are just dive bars, hang out watering holes. I've never seen a bar fight, somebody so drunk they're kicked out, or anything else inappropriate. The sort of places you might see on TV that look skanky and inappropriate certainly exist, but you have to wait in a line the size of a small country to get in. I don't know anyone over 28 who bothers with that. No thanks.

I just don't expect a grown adult to swear off bars once they have children. I simply expect them to be responsible about their children when they leave them behind. Kate wasn't.

All This Is That said...

Collin always seemed to be the one singled out by Kate for whatever reason -- his head was too big, he was the one who was whipped into his crib...he seems to be the scapegoat in the family. I remember Kate humiliating Jon about his breathing. Was Collin the one who was sitting in the garage and Kate told him that she didn't even want to hear him breathe? I can't recall which boy it was, only that at the time I thought what a horrible thing to say, especially when you hear about so many parents whose children have passed away and they would give anything in the world just to be able to hear them take a breath.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Uh oh -- Gladys is complaining that she's "talkin to the hand" again
("#YourIgnoreMode"). The "LOL" doesn't make it sound any less
crazy. This isn't funny anymore. There is a manic quality to her
tweets, and I sense this will increase as the birthday gets closer.
This is not just a "girl crush," or a supportive, caring fan. She is
deeply in love, and this cannot end well.

Does no one care enough about TFW to tell her to get off Twitter?
Of course she won't do it on her own. How else would she be
able to survive spring break stuck with her kids if not for the
electronic stroking of her ego from total strangers?

Here's my point. If Kate had the kids she was tweeting all night. If Jon had them he was out. So either way the kids are ignored. And I have no problem with Jon dating. But it doesn't help him to pick up, or be picked up by young blonds who are happy to tweet out that they are drinking with him and going to make out with him. He should know by now the risks of being photo'ed with a young blond on a Sat night at a bar. There is always so much concern that the kids will be embarrassed by what Kate tweets. Wonder if M&C got asked about the hot blonde that dad made out with this weekend? Of course Jon should have a social life. But not on social media. He should have learned this by now. This is part of media training 101 - never put yourself in a picture that could be construed as compromising. A meet-a-fan-pose-for-a-picture thing is fine. A fan posted one from his DJ gig. Completely appropriate. A glassy eyed Jon tight next to a blond tweeted at 1:40 in the morning? Not so appropriate, in my opinion.

&&&&

The kids are 10 and 14. Not toddlers. I would hope their Saturday nights are filled with age appropriate things like playing with friends, watching movies, playing games, perhaps even going OUT, rather than with their mother the whole time. I mean I think Kate spends too much time on twitter over the years and it's no mistake she tweets the most when she's with the kids, but it's sort of become a moot point at this age. The kids probably prefer she be distracted by something so she's out of their hair. This is not an age where it's normal for a kid to want mommy to entertain them all night. I never remember any of our parents over our shoulders on a Saturday night when I was that age. They would say hi and bring some snacks or drive us places, hug us goodnight and give us the time they wanted us to have lights out, and that was about it. Completely appropriate and normal relationship for that age.

As far as either Kate or Jon goes, if one parent is ignoring the kids on their custodial time, what is the other parent supposed to do about it? Even if Kate is neglecting her children, if it's Kate's time, how does it help the situation for Jon to stay home and play board games? Same for Kate. I don't see what it matters unless Kate or Jon were TOGETHER.

Like I said I really don't care if a parent wants to go to bars or party as long as their children are well cared for. Some people are partiers. I'm not, but it doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it or I am more virtuous than the next person. Whatever floats your boat. There are some people who would say people who prefer to stay home on Saturday night and watch movies like we often do, are coach potatoes.

Ex Nurse said...

Given the fact that, for last several seasons, TLC never includes the G's in their lineup promotional tv or print ads, I think she is just filler, aka for the slot vacated by HBB. They may go back to her from time to time, because she does have a consistent 1,000,000 and up audience, and people are still interested in seeing the kids, especially when they have been gone for awhile. Maybe that will bring in enough cash to sustain her lifestyle. I just don't see that CA will bring her any new opportunities--she was a complete dud in terms of talent and drama. What can she do that any of the other myriad of D list reality stars can't do?

I think that a show that focused on the twins might get some traction, since that age group is her demographic. Mady can be counted on to bring the drama, and, when Cara speaks, she has a dry wit. And, they have a great dynamic between them, and they definitely have their mother's number. But, TFW would never cede the spotlight to them--not in a million years,

There were rumors about CA floating for years. What else is there? Not much out there for 40 year old Barbie dolls, who have zero talent. Maybe she will get tapped for a celebrity cooking show--that would be amusing, I guess.

I'm thinking that she has got to be pretty scared for her financial future right about now. I imagine her appoint book (or app) is like Joan River's in her documentary--blank as far as the eye can see. Oh wait, there is a hair appointment NYC trip every 6 weeks.

I think that they probably made enough money that, if she lived a reasonable lifestyle, would have ensured financial security for life. But, if she can't generate any new income, financing her retirement will come at the expense of the kids money (it probably already has). I think it is pretty certain that, in the end, they will get very little of the money they earned. The reported $40,0000 per episode, for just 5 or 6 episodes was quite a salary cut. I don't imagine that CA pays out much--does anyone here know?

Anyway, my point is, I think she is really done circling the drain. She doesn't even exist outside of the world of twitter and a few blogs right now. For someone who just had a "season" aired in the last few months, and co-starred on a network television show, there is very little buzz or evidence of the existence. Clearly, someone is trying to keep her name out on Radaronline, but it has all been negative.

I don't normally follow D-list stars--does anyone else know what might be next for her?

I think you're right about that. Remember that oh so touching commercial they had out that featured so many of their major players? Kate has never been a part of that. Nor do they do much promotion of her on their web site. Not anything compared to say the Duggars or some of their new shows.

I think filler is a good word for it. They want the flexibility to stick it here or there when needed, but don't want to commit to it really being part of their TLC family again. It's interesting to watch the way they use Kate. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but Kate acts like they actually care about her. Please. She plays right into their hands, jumping every time they command, waiting on standby the rest of the time without a clue what's around the corner. She needs to move on from this dysfunctional situation. This family may very well show up now and again over the next several years, but it will be purely at their discretion whenever they feel like it, and Kate's desires will have nothing to do with it. She is TLC's puppet.

If TFW attempted to have a social life like Jon does, maybe she
wouldn't need so much "stress relief" from being with her kids.
Does she think they aren't aware she finds them burdensome?

make her happy. That is not his job.

&&&&&&&&&

Exactly. If Kate spends time with them as their "besties," hovering over them, making them stay home, then she's criticized for being a control freak. But if she tweets while the kids are home, then she's ignoring them. I certainly would think that those kids don't need to be watched every single minute, and she wants to tweet, fine, let her tweet. They're probably happy to go off and do their own thing, even if it's at home. I would imagine that they like it when she's tweeting away because it means that she's not watching over every single thing they do.

"I'm sorry but Jon masturbating on TV was so much worse than Kate getting her foot licked."

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

Jon never did any such thing. There's more to that story than was revealed on national television, things like being scripted, editing and such, but I'm not going to get into that. It's over and done. Should he have even done that show? I don't think it was a wise choice and when I was told he was going to do it, my first thought was...DO NOT DO IT, big mistake, but hey, it was his own decision.

Kate's foot licking episode was as plain as the nose on your face. Kate getting drunk on television was obvious. The sad thing about that is that it was a family show, and by the sheeples' own admissions, their very young children watch it. How do you explain to a five-year-old watching the show that the kids' mother went off to a bar, got tipsy and had a strange man lick her foot? Is that kind of behavior acceptable? Regardless of what was shown or not shown on CT, it most certainly was not watched by youngsters, as Kate's birthday episode was..

PA Dutch Mom said...

And that's the problem with social media. He gave up his Twitter account. Should Jon make his dates sign C/A's to assure none of them photos or tweets after a certain time of night? Should he vet his dates to make sure that they won't sell photos to online tabs? How would any celebrity or former celebrity guarantee that none of that will happen? Yes, I know...don't put yourself in that kind of position. In a perfect world, that would seem to be the answer. However, no such place exists, and things will happen that can't be undone.

My issue with Kate taking off to NYC had more to do with how shocked and saddened the kids were that she took off on them than anything else. She didn't prepare them for it because apparently it was a "surprise," and Cara especially was horrified she was just abandoning them that weekend. What's more, they filmed the children being so upset and used it as part of the storyline. That was wrong. Terribly wrong.
*******
Big difference.
I can't imagine Jon telling Cara to basically suck up because he's got to film
Not so soon after the whole public divorce was broadcast for all to see.
That family was in crisis.

I agree with you. I have a neighbor whose granddaughter recently died in an accident, age 2.She would love to hear that little girl breathe again. Watching your small children breathe at night is something most parents enjoy doing and to ensue they are ok, if they've been ill, during the baby stage, or just because. I think it was Joel in that garage scene- also was that when TFW said he had a glazed-over expression? They're all icky boys, anyway.

Tucker's Mom, I can't see Jon saying that to Cara either.

With her telling Jon all those years that she can't stand to hear him breathe and then one or more of the kids, (even they were on breathing machines when they were born) that she didn't want to even hear him breathe is just asking for a trach ventilator.

Hope it doesn't happen. But when you tell people that you can't stand to be around even your own husband and your children, you will have to answer for it. My dad graduated with two girls. One was a bully to the other and made fun of her crossed eyes for years. The bully got married very quickly after graduating and got pregnant right away. The cross eyed girl went to college. Guess what happened?

When the baby was born, the nurse handed the baby to the girl and she looked at her new baby and was horrified that the babies eyes were badly crossed.

You reap what you sow. Hang on if you can, TFW, it is going to be a bumpy ride when you do.

After 3 1/2 years of Kate begging for a new show, it is obvious to everyone that nobody wants to take on her or the kids, except TLC. That puts TLC in the position of power when it comes to Kate's ability to make a living off reality TV. When K+8 was filming (2010 and 2011) Kate was very famous, and she called the shots. It was her way or the highway, and she made outrageous demands on TLC. Money, trips, home improvements, staff to wait on her hand and foot. Surprisingly, perhaps, K+8 did not bring in the ratings to justify that kind of expense. She was not willing to lower her demands, her behavior got worse and worse, and TLC had no choice but to let her go. A few years of begging and being rejected over and over shifted the balance of power. She now knows she has to take whatever TLC offers or she has nothing. She already showed the "real Kate" to TLC, and even if she got high ratings, they know to be cautious when dealing with her. They will use her and the kids as filler when they need it, but they know better than to allow her to feel like she's in charge again. And if TLC decides to move on an leave Kate and the kids behind, then their days of timing are over. The ball is in TLC's court and there is nothing Kate can do to change that fact. Every moment of the new shows makes Kate look bad, and she jet has to suck it up or TLC can say, "Don't like it? Fine, we won't film anymore". Just desserts, I say!

Ex Nurse said...

Whether or not Jon was masturbating, there was certainly the appearance of it. He was shown in bed, moaning, with something moving under the covers that sure looked like a hand. Maybe it was staged, and maybe it wasn't. It isn't a question of who is worst. They are both incompetent of providing for their children--instead they relied on their children to support them. It doesn't really matter what either of them have done or not done since the divorce, because, IMO, the original decision to sell their children's privacy was what did the most damage of all. And, that was a decision that they both made---twice!

getofftwitter said...

Admin: Kate stated that she does not tell the kids where they are going. Her explaination was if they don't know where they are going they can't object. Cause, Kate is the school of: put your fingers in your ears and go nah, nah, nah, can't hear you or turn up the mixer, or whatever. Very immature & childish. That is one reason she had, prepacked most of the kids stuff, for the last trip.

I would tell my kids where we are going, get info on where we are going, let the older ones read about where we are going, so then, they can ask questions. By Kate not telling them she gets off on the surprise factor. But, her kids were not that surprised. Even the RV trip. I think that made Kate a little mad. Kate wanted the attention and the mommie dearest crap.

Layla said...

PA Dutch Mom (129),
She is definitely circling the drain. It has been a month (tomorrow) since Donald T dissed her on live TV, and there has been no sign of her since. Compare that to when K+8 was cancelled in 2011--she was everywhere. There were several talk show appearances, a People magazine cover, and she went to the Emmys, all within a month of the show ending. This time…nothing. The final flush won't come until TLC decides to cut her off. They may give her a few more specials here and there…or they may not.

It's also interesting to compare this year to last year. Last year at this time she was juggling filming for CA and K+8. She spent an entire year filming, promoting, and waiting for her shows to come on. She must have thought she was back, in a big way. And then the cameras went away. This is spring break, a time when the kids are all home and ready to be filmed within an inch of their life. You know that's what she wants. But it doesn't seem to be happening. That's TLC's choice, not Kate's.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Layla (#142), I made a similar comment comparing TFW's career
a year ago to her career today. Remember how she disappeared
from Twitter for about a month, while other CA contestants
continued tweeting their followers? She was on top of the world,
and didn't need to get praise and attention from her mediocre
fans. She didn't even pop in to thank them for their birthday wishes.
What difference a year makes. If she really did have some work
prospect, I don't believe she'd be able to keep it under her hat.
There'd be hints and cutesy emoticons, followed by endless
questions from her 6 remaining fans.

So will she treat herself to a vacation (for 2, not 9) for her 40th,
or to some cosmetic enhancements? Or both? Stay tuned.

Yep. She insisted she was just an innocent little put upon angel both on CA and on the Wendi Williams show. She kept pointing her thumb over at Vivica and Kenya as if she knew nothing about such drama. Snort.

Making it your mission to make your parent happy is parentification, and yep at least some of the kids do it. Extremely, extremely unhealthy and detrimental to their own growth and development. Parentified kids spend years on the therapist's couch as adults. It is not normal or healthy for kids to worry about their parent's mental state and happiness.

By refusing to tell the children anything she robs them of both the fun of anticipation as well as an opportunity to research and read about the locations. I love reading literature and guide books from the places I've visited.

Well, not to debate it all over again, but that was pieced and patched so much I thought I was watching a jigsaw puzzle. Most of the dialogue occurred off camera, and there were so many cuts I got dizzy.

But sure, it happened. Men, and women, are allowed to relieve some tension, even in relationships. Dr. Jenn actually thought Liz's reaction was over the top.

It isn't the point for me either in any case. I don't care what adults do or don't do as long as they don't involve their children or exploit them, for me that's the point. What evidence is there, however, that Jon approved filming his children the second time around? None.

Totally agree. If somebody wanted her they would have jumped on it by now. Nobody wants the hassle or liability. Nobody wants to bet on kids not cute anymore, deal with a father making comments contrary to the agenda, or a family so much of the mainstream public has finally made quite clear they don't support. Every time shows like The Talk start talking badly about this situation it's like a nail in the coffin to other jobs. Networks see chatter like that as a good pulse of public opinion. They pay attention.

I doubt it was even a date.

More than likely it was a fan or someone who got a kick out of bumping into him. What's the alternative, go to a public place and tell fans to screw off? I imagine she approached him, he was polite to her and posed for photos. I doubt Jon really cares what she posts. What's she going to do, ruin his reputation? lol.

When you're a celeb, a lot of people make a fool of themselves around you. People get giddy and weird. I saw so much of that around the celeb I worked for I couldn't stand it. It was embarrassing. I heard a man making terribly inappropriate comments once, totally within earshot. I wanted to tell him to stop being an asshole, get some respect and leave us alone there are CHILDREN here, but of course I didn't. What's the point?

Other things weren't necessarily sexually inappropriate but were embarrassing. I can't remember specifically really, I just remember being embarrassed for people. Like get a grip type stuff.

My celeb never called security or whatever. You let people do their thing, what can you do? Don't like it, don't become a celeb.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Another thing about not telling the kids where they were going --
it makes them seem more like just the "talent" on a TV show than
TFW's own children. On TV shows and movies, there is a call sheet
posted with the names of all the actors needed that day, and what
time they're supposed to report for work (depending on which
scenes will be shot). It sounds like the G kids' individual tastes
and interests were not really taken into consideration during the
planning of these trips. They were just cast members. Just load
'em up in the car like cattle, and they'll see where they're going
when they get there. Eight different children, 8 different sets
of thoughts and feelings. Yeah, whatevs, we start shooting
at 8am. Be there. Aloha.

Celebrity Rehab as ill-advised as it is was rated TV-MA.

Adults are allowed to watch TV-MA stuff if we want to as long as they don't tell us it's TV-G then spring a masturbation conversation on us!

As you said, Kate Plus 8 has been completely manufactured as a fun family show then all of a sudden we see the matriarch in a bar, getting her foot licked by strange men, and waking up hung over, per their own admission. I remember discussing it here and so many of us wondering how in the world you would explain this to a child. She put parents in a terribly awkward situation and they resented it. A whole boatload of fans jumped ship after that and never came back. That's about the time she got whittled down to the six sheeple. I think she either forgot or didn't care that this woman amassed a whole ton of Christian fans from years back who had been sticking this out but who were on thin ice. They had finally had enough. Last straw kind of situation.

It's funny to see how many times Goody tweets about the lack of "haters" on Kate's timeline. Every day lately. Why mention it over and over and over? I can see tweeting about it once, then just enjoying the peace, but that't not what she's doing. It's continuous. I think because she's itching for someone to fight with, and she hopes to get a reaction out of them so they'll come back. The sheeple all know that Kate's timeline is dead and boring without the conflict. Constantly praising someone you'll never meet gets really old after awhile, I'm sure. Goody craves conflict.
I am still hoping that the non-fans will boycott Kate's twitter. The sheep will be desperate, just like the last time the non-fans left. I just wish that this time, it could be for good, or at least for a long time. C'mon, non-fans, they claim they want peace--give them what they claim they want! Then sit back and laugh when they freak out without anyone to fight with.

I would have thought by now that she would have put aside these silly girl crushes on aging stars. The longer this continues the more difficult it will be to cut the strings and get down to the business of being a mature young woman.

I don't know why in the world you would need to do such dizzying splicing if he in fact just sat there and did so "on camera." Why not just show it as one shot, or a few?

First get it room, yes lol.

Second, trial and error, learning as you go??? You are a 40 year old woman for gosh sakes. I would more suggest that sort of thing for your 25th birthday, or 30. But 40?

By 40 you should be mature, know your own mind, know how the world works and how you yourself tick. If you haven't gotten there by 40 that's just immaturity and you have no business having kids.

That just sounds like another convenient excuse to be made for Kate. Well, she's young. She's not young!

Newsflash, she's not young. She was not that young of a mother, and is still not that young of a mother, and will never be that young of a mother. Or woman. No excuse there. Stop with the excuses, Milo.

Susie, I tried to find the exchange so I could c/p the entire twitter conversation, but was unsuccessful. Sorry, because it was really funny! Goody even wondered if perhaps Milo was eating some sort of cheap Koi!!! Maybe someone else can repeat/repost it here?

If and when Gladys ever meets Kate, I'd pay good money to be there. Gladys needs someone to be there with water, smelling salts and to pick her off the floor after she kisses the ground that Kate walks on.

I guess Milo still hasn't come out of the closet. Isn't it about time...I mean this lusting has gone on for years?

Here's the "goldfish" conversation, or at least most of it. I think twitter left out a few tweets.

Susie (162): "The only problem is that the non-fans need this symbiosis and the sheeple know it. Both feed off each other and it's an addiction for both sides."

)))))))))))

You're right. There is a non-fan who sits on there 24/7 (how can a person do that, saying the same thing over and over and over again?) and some just need to continue the sheeple-hater feud. Unfortunately, It's not going to end as long as there are those who don't want it to end..

FlimsyFlamsy said...

So Gladys told TFW the first 40 years were just trial and error?
Who's the "mindreader" now? She's got chutzpah, trying to
sum up someone's entire life. She's blinded by love -- her
opinion could not be more biased.

As someone who's been following this saga, I don't think TFW
has learned a blessed thing. And I am basing this opinion on
the fact that she doesn't regret putting her kids on TV, and
continues to actively and unashamedly pursue opportunities
to air their most private moments for all the world to see.

I think Milo fancies herself sort of as Kate's mentor about growing older. The older wiser BFF.

No, Milo. Just no.

And this is just another example of Milo having no self awareness. Kate probably will just ignore her, but many 40-year-old women would be very offended by that comment. Um, excuse me, my life is not "trial and error," thanks for playing.

Thanks, Remona. I saw the tweets about the goldfish, but I didn't know why Milo is on the BRAT diet, which is usually advised for an upset stomach, or the gastro thing. I don't think it's recommended as a cure for delusion, lusting or mental health issues!

I did see a promotional type commercial on TLC that had a montage of different TLC shows on it. This was about a week or so ago and Kate was on it. It shocked me really. Anybody else see this?

Jonas didn't stay in NY during CA, he traveled home every day. He mentioned it in an interview along the way.

Teresa Guidice also said on an episode of CA that she traveled home every night to NJ to be with her four young daughters. So I guess it is possible. To bad she can't travel home every night now...prisons don't allow that!

TLC stinks said...

I believe Milo is an obese middle age woman who daydreams about having a body like Kate, thus the fascination. I think Milo is a lonely person, lives a solitary life but with a family that does not appreciate her. Her only friends are those on Twitter. When people attack Kate, she takes it personally because she wants to be like Kate physically and perhaps in all respects. After reading her Twitter comments for years, to me they are wishes for herself. Kate is ridiculous for egging this woman on. She is obsessed with Kate. That's my armchair analysis (for now).

After 3 1/2 years of Kate begging for a new show, it is obvious to everyone that nobody wants to take on her or the kids, except TLC. That puts TLC in the position of power when it comes to Kate's ability to make a living off reality TV.
*************
Of course I don't know if any other network is even remotely interested in Kate and the kids, but I tend to think not.
I read this article in the Washington Post Magazine this Sunday that highlights a local, young woman's quest to pitch her reality tv show. It. Is. Brutal. Competition.

Kate has no other platform other than being the harried mom of 8 kids (who hates their father with the heat of 10,000 suns).

FlimsyFlamsy said...

If any of us had made up that Twitter goldfish exchange, it couldn't
have been any funnier than the real thing! And meanwhile poor
Gladys didn't accomplish her goal -- to have someone ask why
she was on the BRAT diet. Maybe she should flounce off and
come back again.

I wonder if somewhere deep down, TFW is sincerely dreading
this big birthday because she knows she'll never again be the
media darling she once was. She hinted about it a few times.
She said she wanted another opportunity to "hit it out of the
park." And also said she thought "lightening (sic) could strike
twice." Both those comments sort of intimate that she realizes
she got lucky. Her fame was not the result of talent, skill,
hard work, or perseverance. And may be now it's starting to
sink in that she's on the long slide back to mediocrity. Just my
Monday morning two cents!

Tucker's Mom said...

Yep. She insisted she was just an innocent little put upon angel both on CA and on the Wendi Williams show. She kept pointing her thumb over at Vivica and Kenya as if she knew nothing about such drama. Snort.
*******
What I loved, loved, loved about Kate's firing that that she was so sure that The Donald was sitting there is awe of her restraint-so impressed that she wasn't participating the "girl drama" that he would NEVER fire HER!
The epitome of professionalism that she is!
Kate was so certain that either Vivica or Kenya would be hoist by their own petard that she figured she'd just sit back, "tsk tsk" their behavior, and laugh all the way back to the winner's lounge.
That's why she was gobsmacked when Trump fired her.
Loved it.

Tucker's Mom said...

DH wanted goldfish for dinner last night, but we were all out. So, I scooped the clown and angel fish out of the bowl on the kitchen table, and fried them up.
Yummmmm!!!!!!!!!!!
DH gave a 10 out of 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's funny to see how many times Goody tweets about the lack of "haters" on Kate's timeline. Every day lately. Why mention it over and over and over?
******
Boredom.
Itching for a fight and there's no one biting on Kate's twitter line lately.
It's just baiting.

Formerly Duped said...

That leads me to a question...why does Kate keep the fish & their food on the table as a centerpiece? Do many people do that?

Tucker: I was scrolling from the bottom and saw 'hoist by her own petard" and said to myself, I bet Tucker wrote this post, lol.So you did!

The fish on the table kind of skeeves me out.
Kate's table is not a "sacred" place for eating. There are no manners practiced, and food is not even honored with actual plates, napkins, glasses and utensils.
So, it's no wonder that fish live there.

Tucker's Mom said...

I wanted to add to the fish on the table-this is the same woman who allows a bird to perch on the kitchen counter as she preps food.
She is not ocd about germs, in fact, she has the dirtiest feet, too.

What evidence is there, however, that Jon approved filming his children the second time around? None.
-------
IIRC, there were at least 2 contracts signed for the original show. In Robert's book, there were some letters with some veiled threats that they would look elsewhere if TLC did not meet their demands. That is what I remember--I could be wrong. Don't really care enough to look for it, but, maybe someone else remembers this?

As far as Jon's masturbating, I didn't make any judgement about it. It was in response to someone saying that there was no proof that it happened at all. I thought that he admitted this in a session. Again, don't really care enough to look.

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

Exactly. That she can't even consider what her critics are saying as perhaps ringing of some truth is just evidence of her immaturity.

She's right simply because she's Kate. It's also very telling to how she views her children as "her" property instead of individual people. KateplusMY8 really says it all, doesn't it?

She's in for a big shock when those kids get big enough to start standing up for and defending themselves and/or each other. Perhaps not all of them will, but with eight children, odds are certainly against her in that regard.

I believe Milo is an obese middle age woman who daydreams about having a body like Kate, thus the fascination.

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

Milo has said quite a few times that she's very "petite." She was thrilled when she found petite "slacks" on sale via Kate's coupon site, and has tweeted that she's about 100 pounds.

Who knows what to believe, though, especially if it's a catfish.
