I am happy to say that I have something much more fun to do tonight, and it's not even my birthday. Going to a Giants game with my son, and I think Madison Baumgardner is pitching! It's a night game, so I'm bringing along my leather jacket and a fleece blanket to keep warm once that sun goes down :) Fooey on Kate turning 40.

I thought it was a mistake, but here are the ratings for the 3-hour "Decade of Kate" according to Showbuzz:

615,000 viewers and a 0.17 share, the 49th most popular show of the day.

That is surprising given the Mother's Day special brought in 1.24 million on a Sunday and the January specials were better than 1.4 million each. I know it wasn't advertised that much. We'll see how the new special goes tonight.

Thanks for the numbers. I'm surprised that the 3-hour tooth extraction, I mean, KateFest, lost half the audience.

Has there been a lot of promotion for the Mexico episode? I think I'd get travelers diarrhea just watching it.

Tucker's Mom said...

OMG, our heat index is 108 right now. It feels like a convection oven out there!

Jane said...

Let's Throw Tomatoes- I'm sorry you're still in pain. If the gel rxed for you is Voltaren, it's one I've used on and off for a year or so when needed. I've found that it works best for me if I use it 3-4 times a day and rub it in very well. And then let the area dry. It's time consuming but the gel does help. There are also some compounded creams that also work well but you need a good compounding pharmacy to put them together.

Kylie said...

Fantastic Mike B. Thanks for reporting!

Layla said...

MikeB,

Love those ratings! That's the lowest for any episode of K+8, ever. And of course, TLC said that ratings are up after the Duggar debacle, so nobody can claim it's due to a boycott. Let's see how tonight's show does. I hope it's just as bad.

TLC has put a lot of effort into shoving Kate down viewers' throats. The Mother's Day special was promoted to death. Constant previews, the marathon of K+8 leading up to it, and yet the ratings dropped. For tonight's show there was an 8-9 minute preview, a 3-hour special the night before, and a marathon leading up to it. And it's airing immediately after two episodes of The Little Couple, which is now TLC's highest-rated show. They are putting a lot of effort into reviving interest in the Gosselins. You don't see them putting that kind of effort into their other shows. I've never seen an 8-9 minute preview of any show, ever. Last night's show was lots of clips of the kids when they were younger, which was when viewers fell in love with them. It's a "Remember how much you loved those cute little kids? Don't you want to watch them again?" thing. I doubt that it will work, but we'll see.

Layla said...

I checked tvbythenumbers, and K+8 didn't even make their list. So, MikeB, I think your site got it right!

We are getting hammered right now. High winds, horrible thunder and lightning, heavy rain, and it is so bloody hot!

So Kate doesn't want to be reminded about dating. Then she needs to silence Milo, who just loves to tweet about Kate having a man in her life! Hear that, Gladys? Kate hates this, and you don't want to do anything to offend her.

Yeah, that sucks. But expect bigger numbers tonight, The Little Couple "premiere" is in the 2-hour block preceding her. TLC may be unethical, crass, and immoral, but they're not totally stupid. :)

NJGal51 said...

I'm glad tha the ratings are dropping and I think a lot of it has to do with the times that the show is on and what's on opposite it. I think that the other specials were on between seasons of the network shows but now she has to compete with AGT, SYTYCD, the Bacholorette, etc. AGT is the big summer draw and she's running directly against it in my area.

That 0.17 share is dismal. The teeny boppers and twenty somethings going on 15 didn't even tune in. I wonder how advertisers feel about that number. You could by the lack of activity on Kate's twitter that not many people had tuned in.

I hope TLC got the message that watching old clips of Kate isn't appealing to anyone. DUMP THE OLD CLIPS TLC, BURN THEM.

But the birthday show will get more viewers, of course.

Layla said...

I didn't watch last night's crapfest, but I'm wondering if Kate narrated it, or if someone else did. Anyone here know? If it's just a bunch of old clips and no narration or couch interview from her, she probably didn't even get paid for that one.

getoftweeter said...

Nonsense people, the show tanked cause it WAS TOOOOO LONG. Three freakin hours long. Geez, I can't stand Kate for no more than 10 minutes max, 3 hour was suicide.

Formerly Duped said...

I think if there was no new footage, some viewers didn't bother. ( I didn't watch but I assume it was TFW narrating old clips) Or maybe people will watch FOUR hours tomorrow night since TLC usually repeats the newest one before the special ! Or maybe...no one is interested.

gert said...

The conclusion that TLC must make is that Kate Gosselin is not marketable and that viewers are not going to tune in to see her shows. I believe that this 40th birthday party may very well be her goodbye party

getoftweeter said...

THANKS Mikeb: I'm doing the HAPPY DANCE to Chelsea Dagger! Now we have to hope and pray tonights rating tank too.

getoftweeter said...

Well, if TLC is filming for shows after the 30th, than TLC is using K8 as a filler, till they find out where they stand with their cash cow the Duggars. I would not be surprised if the Roloffs show up and the others.

PatK said...

Pretty obvious people are tired of watching clips of the past ten years of fakery.

I think we can all expect The 40th Birthday Extravaganza to garner far more viewership...especially from males (and of course Milo) waiting to see that bikini rockin' body.

Also of course next week's 32nd celebration of the kids' 11th birthday...because, you know, pre-teen birthday parties are such television entertainment.

getoftweeter said...

OH, I read a part from the article, in the UK rag, and they were saying that Kate is sick of people asking her if she is dating.

HEY KATE, you put your self out there TS!

Kates marriage was a sham. Kate used Jon as a sperm bank, she thought she could control him. During the marriage, Jon had no balls, but after the degrading and abuse, he grew some. Cause, he did Jon had no place in Kates BUCKET LIST, so with TLC help they almost castrated Jon. So everything Kate said last night, in clips was a lie, she only had those kids, for her own self gain, by saying: the last 5 years, since the divorce, have been the best time of her life, her marriage, and birth of her kids, during the previous 10 years, were a horrible waste of her life. Kate does not think before she makes a statement. Perhaps that is why the ratings sucked. Or people did not want to rehash old glories. And then listen to her go on about poor single mom of 8, doing it alone, and I'm sure the clips would make you think she did it alone, and all the things they got, and the trips they went on, it's like rubbing it in to the public, of which, I would say at least 85% are just making ends meet.

I'm not sure why anyone is so surprised by the ratings. It wasn't a new show. Repeats (which is what this was, packaged differently) always draw fewer viewers. Comparing these numbers to new shows is an apples and oranges comparison.

How many people, though, didn't realize that this wasn't a new show with current couch talk, new videos showing how the kids have grown? Believing that might happen, it is surprising that so few people watched the show, even though it was billed as a decade of Kate. I'm not sure anyone really knew what to expect and thought...wow! A three hour special!

angie said...

The crapfest is still showing on TLC. watched 1 segment.
She said when the kids were 2, she had two helpers. Nana Janet and some other lady (can't recall the name).
Then she started talking potty training. Did the girls first, because they are more mature and easier to train. (not always, Kate).
My ears perked up when she started talking potty training, because we know the abuse one of the boys went through after 2 DAYS of training. She said boys don't care if their diaper is dirty because they are 'like whatever'. And then TLC showed the Colin constipated clip, but ONLY the part where he says 'mommy change me;, and Kate says, 'he pooped!"
definitely some history re-writin' going on at TLC.

barf.
and all the while, she's yammering on and on, and tossing her manicured hands all over the place.
She's a piece of work!

Layla said...

Yes, this show was just old clips, but her last show of old clips (the Memorable Moments one, which aired in February) got 1.44 million viewers. People watch these flashback shows to see the kids when they were little, and this is the only one that has had really poor ratings.

Kate's kept very slim and has done a good job of maintaining what the tummy tuck gave her. I'm pretty sure she's had lipo, too.
So, yeah, she looks good, but she's had procedures from head to toe.
That, and perma-tans make people look more svelt.

I refuse to give her ratings....why do I feel evil and giddy at the same time???

Wow, just saw a commercial for the Roloffs. I am really surprised, that they would do more episodes, considering, they are divorcing. I really thought they would keep the divorce, private, but I guess TLC waved big bucks in their faces, and they went for it. Must need money! Another family ruined by TLC, Shameful!

Kates marriage was a sham.

))))
I don't think the entire marriage was a sham, at least not in the first few years. Watching some of those early clips she seemed to be genuinely happy, even when the twins were born. However, when she put her plan in place to have multiples, a light bulb went off and she saw that she could market those kids. TLC was interested, and after that, greed took over, she became part of the nouveau riche, and the marriage went to hell from there.

I know next to nothing about gofundme, but do these people actually believe that a total stranger like Kate (and TLC) would put money into an account of a stranger who is out of work and wants to get a new start on life?

Has anyone ever done research into how many of these accounts are credible and how many are scams?

There are different levels of I want to say scrutiny when it comes to crowd funding.
Go Fund Me is a pretty easy site to set up a scam (vs. say, Kickstarter).

Is Kate's birthday and Mexico going to be 1 episode? That's a lot of resources for just 40-some minutes.

Jeanne said...

I thought Kate was supposedly dating Jeff Millionaire in January. But in March she hasn't had a fun night out in forever? He must be a real drag.

I will agree with whoever said it on the last thread. I feel sorry for the poor worker who had to look at all that film and piece together the clip show. How awful.

Susie Cincinnati said...

She has to be a catfish. Nobody could be this insane over another person, especially an internet stranger she has never met. I just wish I knew if this is a man in a facility, a lonely woman who has no family, Steve, or a hired TLC intern. Will we ever know? I remember someone jumped on here quite awhile ago and said that Milo's identity will be revealed. Nothing.

Susie Cincinnati, you're right. She's a loon. And notice that Milo can't stand it that Kate responded to Barb's tweet of friendship (whatever it is since Barb is private). So Gladys horns in there to hog the attention away from Barb.

In real life, Milo must be THE most annoying person in the region. In all of Georgia maybe! (Gonna step out on a limb on that one.)

I lived in Georgia briefly, and there was a sweet phrase down there. As people were leaving, they'd say what sounded like, "I in jawd-ya." I don't know how to even write it phonetically, but it sounded like a Southern version of "I in Georgia!"

Finally we understood what it was: "I enjoyed ya!" Pretty sure no one has ever told Milo that. I'll bet when they see Gladys coming, neighbors RUN to the other side of the grocery store and hide inside clothes racks at the mall ...

Susie Cincinnati said...

(I was looking at the comparison photos of Kate in her wedding dress, and her "girls" straining to free themselves in her rockin' bikini top in Mexico!) Geeze, and the sheeple believe that she didn't have implants? Too much wool in their eyes, I guess. They need some serious shearing.

That's assuming she had any integrity to begin with, Milo. Deanna is participating this evening. Wonder if she's being compensated to do so. She's put old Milo into rare form.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

AuntieAnn (#70), TFW would never participate in anything which
would result in helping the earth! That whole "Go Green" bit
with Sara Snow didn't make much of an impression, if you consider
how many trees were destroyed just to keep her family in paper
towels and paper plates. Did you know she has 8 kids?

And I ain't no scientist, but I don't think those silicone implants
would decompose while she was in the compost pile.

Gosselin's Isle

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
A tale of a fretful ship
That started from this Gosselin port
Aboard this TLC ship

The mom was a mighty wailing man
The monkey brave and sure
10 passengers and film crew set sail that day
For a life time tour, a life time tour

Lightning Strike!

The weather started getting rough
The tups cookies were tossed
If not for the courage of the fearless daddy crew
The sheeple would be lost, the sheeple would be lost

The ship set ground on the shore of this preplanned desert isle
With Katie
The Monkey too
Jeff Millionaire
And his wife
Mady the Movie Star
The Pumpkin and Dee Ann
Here on Gosselin's Isle!!

C'mon now. She's the first mother of eight to ever reach the ripe old age of forty. Never been done before.

Sad but true said...

Watching her tweet TL, it never fails to amaze me that there are so many who just do not get that what they are watching is about as far from "reality" as it could be. I saw people saying how wonderful Kate is to take all those children on vacation. SHE had nothing to do with it! ALL she did was say, Yes, TLC, and would you please make sure their rooms are in another wing. She didn't spend a dime of her own on what they watched. And I am continually amazed that these people seem to believe that she does this by herself. Just like with most things in her life, she seems to think if she says it often enough, it will become true.

Finally! But she only picked up, at most, a few hundred over the past few days of many episodes. Nothing like what was happening during CA. No bulk purchases this time around? Can't wait to see what the ratings look like.

@Kateplusmy8 @TLC Oh no, I missed it! We were literally at Hershey Park from open to close! Thank goodness for DVR!

++++++++

I guess that's better than being illiterately at Hersheypark!

The show will be re-run at 1 a.m. Stay awake!.

Sheeple are amusing.

How long do you freeze them? Do you just put them into the freezer, or do you need trays? How long do they stay frozen once they are removed? Do they get freezer burn if you don't use them right away? Do tell and share your recipe!

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack 8m8 minutes ago
@deannatweeting @Kateplusmy8 We got to work on her 4getting abt this 40 number & just get out there & feel young & fun! :)
::::::

OMG! Milo's more focused on it than Kate is.

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

She is so much in love/lust with Kate that it oozes out of every pore in her body. All kidding aside, when you think about it, it's really pathetic. She needs help, but it's obvious that she's happy in her little fantasy world, and she will never accept the fact that Kate cares absolutely nothing about her. She is not Milo's friend, and neither is Deanna nor Jamie. I don't understand that her family, if she has one, isn't worried about her. I can't imagine that she's able to keep this obsession a secret from them.

Sheeple tweets are much more entertaining than any of the shows!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Why should TFW be encouraged to feel "young & fun," when
she is neither? No, 40 is not old, but she's not a kid anymore.
That's always been one of the sheeple's complaints about
Jon -- that he's some overgrown frat boy. And Ms. Picklepuss
wouldn't know fun if it was perched in her cleavage like Zorro.

If the fans (read: Gladys) want to rally TFW to a cause, how
about suggesting she take her 24/7 attention away from herself
and her needs and putting it where it belongs: on the 8
children she's brought into this world? C'mon, TFW - #DoIt!

TheOneWithTheSilverSpoon said...

Well done Redbird!!

All This Is That said...

Insomnia here. I surfed over to TLC to see what they were airing, and caught about 30 seconds of Kate. That's all I could stand. Oh, my gosh...that voice!

She was drinking a mojito, followed by a bubble gum martini. She said, "My kids will be so proud!" Huh? What the heck? For drinking a martini? Kids are proud of their moms when they do volunteer charity work, or overcome an obstacle in their lives, or a single parent who goes back to school, works, and still manages to provide a loving, stable home for their children.

But children being proud of a mother who drinks a bubble gum martini? Only in Kate's world! She just doesn't think about what comes out of her mouth.

Has anyone watched "Cry Wolfe?" It's interesting. Scripted, but interesting. Much better than watching Kate's eye rolls and hand flapping, and downing martinis..

http://www.wolfesinvestigations.com/about.php

I wonder how much Deanna gets paid as a loyal friend to accompany Kate on free trips.

Jeanne said...

Fun article. It lists the awful things Kate said about being 40. It's terrible she needs to forget she's a mother to have fun. Most mothers can just have fun for the evening.

Sad but true said... 85
Watching her tweet TL, it never fails to amaze me that there are so many who just do not get that what they are watching is about as far from "reality" as it could be. I saw people saying how wonderful Kate is to take all those children on vacation. SHE had nothing to do with it! ALL she did was say, Yes, TLC, and would you please make sure their rooms are in another wing. She didn't spend a dime of her own on what they watched. And I am continually amazed that these people seem to believe that she does this by herself. Just like with most things in her life, she seems to think if she says it often enough, it will become true.
******
Ah, Kate's little mushrooms. She will never disabuse them of the notion that she not only pays for none of it, but she gets a huge paycheck for it, and has a ton of paid help.
They probably think Deanna and the other helper are there for free!

I have to laugh at those telling Kate how amazing she cleaned up after the mud. Um, she travels with her make-up artist folks! Gets her wardrobe for free before each trip.

P.J. said...

redbird, you crack me up!

Molly12 said...

I didn't watch the show so maybe someone can answer this. Is Kate's newest "friend" Andrea just another TLC paid friend? I saw on Radar Online that she stayed back with the kids when Kate and Deanna went on their hunt for men. To me, that is called a babysitter, not a friend.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

How come when Jon drinks he's a barhopping loser and
a miserable role model for his kids, but when TFW does it
she's cute and fun loving? A silly name and an umbrella in
the drink doesn't make the alcohol any less potent.

My moratorium on watching she-who-must-not-be-named
continues, but I look forward to reading more of your
comments about last night's show!

BARF.
I wonder what kind of reception they received when walking into the restaurant. Takes a lot of arrogance, imo.

Looks like Anna got her teeth straightened, but Josh's are still crooked. What's with JB, he fixes the girl's teeth but not the boys? (idk if the boy's teeth were fixed,but Josh's clearly aren't).
I guess fixing the girl's teeth is for their future husband's enjoyment??

It's funny how, since TLC came knocking, the women dumped the prairie dress look and started slathering themselves with makeup.

And back to Kate. Gee, how this woman says she just got a new bra is incredulous. LOL
Yep, after several pregnancies, every mom's boobs grow like that and fill out on top....with no sagging!

Let's throw tomatoes said...

I watched two clips of Kate's vacation and it confirmed why I can't stand her. The rolling eyes, the faces and that oh poor me voice of how hard she has it. What the crap does does she do??? According to her kids she's always gone, and she does not do any housework. She is such a liar!

I've said this before and I'll say it again she talks, thinks and dresses like she's in her twenties. Deanna's dress at the bar was more age appropriate then Kate's. And the bikini she wore had her fake boobs hanging out, all while crying about being 40 and mother of eight. Kate is never going to grow up, she's heading in the same direction as 60 year old Kris Jenner!

Redbird your a hoot!!

What did Mady refuse to eat last night on the show "out of respect" for something she said was disgusting. I didn't watch the show, can't stand the sight of Katie.

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

The younger girls made Kate a cake and so did the boys. Mady said they were ugly and disgusting. She went on to make fun of the way they decorated them, and said she didn't eat any "out of respect" for how bad they looked.

I can't recall her exact words, but it wasn't one of her finer moments. She's not very likable, which I'm sorry to say about a child. The boys were so proud of theirs. They had decorated it with flowers as they thought Kate would like a girly cake.

Virginia Pen Mom said...

As the ET article pointed out, Kate gave the kids each 200 pesos to buy HER presents ... not, as most mothers would, to buy themselves souvenirs. And she kept going on and on about how NO ONE had ever taken them out to buy HER something, which was throwing Jon under the bus and backing over him, of course. As well as throwing her own parents under there--let's be real. Poor Katie, no one ever thinks about gifts she might want and how the kids are dying to buy her things but no one will take them out to do it.

Colin was so proud that he bought a bear with a little cub. I couldn't see it exactly, but I think maybe the cub went inside the mama bear. Kate made a sarcastic couch comment about not being sure what he was thinking and "where are the other seven cubs?" She's a freaking witch. She raved over some of the gifts, platters and servings plates and such.

Virginia Pen Mom said...

Here's another Kate quote from last night, which I'm sure the ladies of the veranda will have fun with. Damage control for the speeding mother driving with her lights out at night?

"It felt out of my nature to be driving irresponsibly and crazily with my kids in the car. I couldn't see being reckless for the sake of being reckless."

How about being reckless because you have an agenda? I guess that's okay. Witch.

Formerly Duped said...

We're nearing the end of June...anyone know anything abut the custody application by Jon for Hannah? I imagine it will be kept quiet for as long as it can be, but I knwo all of us here will be happy if at least one child breaks free...

JoyinVirginia said...

In more interesting tv show news, On Flip or Flop last night on hgtv, Tariq and Christina took a house with a laundry room and teensy bathroom in it (yeah, you had to go in the bedroom to get to the laundry room, weird), and got their contractor to change the entrance and move a wall. They ended up with nice laundry room that had entry off the hall, and a lovely master suite with really nice tiled shower. Of course, since this is flip or Flop and they buy the property without an inspection, in doing the demolition the termite damage and water leak was discovered in the wall. But all got fixed, and house sold quickly and even with extra renovation costs they made money.
Yes, watching someone repair termite damage on hgtv is way more interesting to me than tfmjg.

Localyocul said...

From the ET article

When I hang out with [her] I sometimes am able to forget that I have eight kids. So it was successful and fun and we will treasure it forever," Kate said to working cameras that broadcast this comment onto TVs that her children could presumably watch.

Virginia Pen Mom said...

I should add that Kate made the comment about driving recklessly because they were driving some type of mud carts. You can imagine it was very hard for Kate, the conscientious and safe driver, to feel comfortable driving a vehicle of this sort. How many speeding tickets do you have, Katie? If her nose grew every time she lied, she'd have to cart it around in a wheelbarrow.

Moley13 said...

@RitaWheater: Kateplusmy8 u treated Collin horribly and coldly when he gave u his gift. #horriblemother #narcissist #icequeen
========
I didn't watch but if this comment is true I really fell sorry for poor Collin.

Deanna gave each child 200 pesos to buy Kate a birthday present and also told them it was ok to bargain with the shopkeeper. Most of the kids picked out turtle figurines and Mady,Cara and Hannah chipped in for a platter. Colin saw a figurine and really wanted it for his Mom but it cost 550, he very nicely asked the shopkeeper if he could have it for 200 and the man agreed. Colin was so happy and couldn't believe he was able to buy it and kept saying thank you. The kids gave Kate her gifts in reverse birth order and she gushed over each one except Colin's. When she opened his she didn't even smile just said, "What where are the others?" Turns out it was a bear holding a cub and Colin said it's you and me, he was so proud of his gift and she didn't even say thank you. She later said that she received great gifts except for Colin's his was a little strange. My heart just broke for him.

redbird said...

I didn't watch the birthday celebration last night, but reading here, it sounds horrid. I remember the little party announcing they were going to Mexico and when Colin handed her his gift, she was very cold to him. Poor Colin looked like a robot. But when a tup girl gave her her gift, she hugged her.

She thinks that being better to the girls will assure her that she will have someone when she gets older. But she has written those poor, innocent boys off and that is just cruel and evil. They are such good boys. They have done nothing to deserve such cruel treatment. They all haven't.

I haven't seen it yet, but read that she was running around in a little bikini around the kids. I think that is terrible to have a bikini on like that around your 11 year old SONS. Ok with your girls, but not with your boys. Put a half robe on. UGH!!!

Wasn't that Andrea at the house at the Mexican party or did she show up with Jamie?

Susan1956 said...

OT. Don't eat or drink when you watch this. I can't get past his repeated use of the word "investment"--maybe that's what your kids' lives become when you're on reality TV.

I wonder if the sheeple realize that 200 pesos is just under $13 U.S. dollars. I'll bet that some of the presents the kids bought didn't go home with her. It was all for the cameras.

That's right. It was Deanna, not Kate, who gave the kids each 200 pesos. Of course, Kate was surely in on it. I also forgot Collin said, "It's you and me."

He's such a darling, intelligent little boy. It brings tears to my eyes to think about because he has so much love to give and he loves his mom so much, but she will not love him in return.

"It's you and me." But this little boy is part of a six-pack and his mother can't recognize him as an individual, much less see the love he put into that gift and how symbolic it was to him. I'll bet it goes in the trash.

Tucker's Mom said...

You know, if I flew my kids down to Mexico for a quick vacation, the last thing I'd sign them up for is baking a cake for ME!!!!!!!!!
How many baked goods can those kids slather to death with icing?

Snick Dog said...

Every child--singleton or multiple--deserves to feel they are loved by their mother. I'm sure Colin doesn't feel like part of a boxed set, he feels like a child who desperately desires his mother's unconditional love and acceptance for who HE is, and not for being one of 6 or 8. Hence the one mother/one child gift. But of course that's not how she sees it at all. He doesn't exist without the others, and from what it sounds like, he doesn't register on her radar much at all. This is seriously heartbreaking. Remember, Robert dedicated his book to Colin especially. There's something very, very wrong there.

Formerly Duped said...

Poor dear Collin. When is he going to stop trying? He loves his mother and craves her attention and approval, seen in other episodes, too, right from toddlerhood. How can she treat her own child like this? The gift sounds very thoughtful and sweet, more so than a platter, even if 'golden.'.

PatK said...

Now that Kate's "Me, Me, Me, My Milestone Birthday Extravaganza" is over (and no, I don't watch), everyone can look forward next week's "Littles' Milestone (lol) 11th Birthday Bash Starring Me, Me, Me, Kate Gosselin"!!!!

I await with bated breath to hear the reports of how Kate can't believe they are 11 years old already; how Mady manages to complain about something (with theatric emphasis); how the Littles complain, argue and diss whatever activity Kate's planned for the celebration, and how Zorro wows the viewers by being front and center on someone's shirt.

Yessir, that's some quality television entertainment!

Life is grand!

Although I don't agree with all that she wears, they (both BOYS and girls) are her kids and don't look at her that way. They're used to the way she dresses. I've got a son and yes I did wear a bikini on the beach in my younger days. Of course I'm only an A cup so there was not much spillage.

foxy said...

Thank you Virginia Pen for explaining things on the great 40 show. Just the thought of that evil biotch makes me sick to my stomach. She is so cruel to Colin. I hope he grows to be a fine young man as he is such a little love bug now. I am surprised Joel got blames for the equator "thingy" missing from the globe and not Colin.

Oh, yeah, you know she made the list.
************************
Ha, ha! Love the description underneath the picture...

In 2004, the Pennsylvania nurse and her IT nerd husband welcomed sextuplets into their family, which already included twin girls, and "Jon & Kate Plus 8" was born. Matriarch Kate proved to be as tender and empathetic as Godzilla making his way through downtown Tokyo. She assiduously berated her then-husband, Jon Gosselin, yet lapped up attention fame brought her family. They divorced, and her show was canceled in 2011. But Kate never gave up, and fought to stay relevant and get her family back on TV. In 2014, she trotted out her two teenage daughters on the "Today" show, where she demanded that her suddenly sullen girls "Spit it out!" when they wouldn't speak.

NJGal51 said...

To finish my thought on TFW in a bikini, the kids might be embarassed if she dresses that way in front of their friends, but again, she's their mom (for better or worse) and they're used to seeing her around the pool and again, the boys don't look at her that way.

Sue_Buddy said...

:::::::::

That's one of the saddest things I've come across lately. It gives me a huge lump in my throat. I remember when Robert said he'd brought a box of donuts for Colin one time and one of the "haters" made their Twitter handle "Donuts for Colin." That name made me tear up, too. That poor guy can't get a break from his mother can he? It's hearing things like that that make it very difficult to NOT detest, despise, hate that horrible, self-centered creature that is their mother. She'll say anything to get a laugh even if it hurts her children.

What are the people who think Kate is so great doing when something like this happens? Are they all taking a potty break and miss it? Do their minds shut off when they see Kate treat Colin in such a horrible way? When Colin sits on the couch and looks all spaced out, do they notice? Gawd, people are stupid not to notice such things and if they do notice they're terribly callous to overlook it.

swimgirl said...

I didn't watch the show and after hearing about Colin's treatment, I am glad I watched AGT. She truly is a selfish, cold witch! How could she treat a little boy so nastily? This just breaks my heart.

She has no filter, no awareness, no genuine feelings of love or empathy. Didn't see the show, but the description is all I need. She is evil, disgusting, revolting, self absorbed shell of a human being. Yes, I also hope Colin becomes a very successful, loved and admired adult. It would be the ultimate karma for that grotesque entity. She is vile. It's all these little actions that slowly yet surely chip away at her sons' souls and hearts.

Last night I saw several tweets on Kate's T/L about how sweet the boys were and how polite Colin was and how he said, "Thank you. Thank you very much" and wondered what was going on. Those same people tweeted about that but were deathly silent when Kate dismissed Colin's sweet gift in such a thoughtless way. Seriously, what is wrong with people?

I know! I thought that too about the globe. I think it's only recently that Joel has come into her 'favor' by being pleasant and affable yet speaks his mind in an understated way (Such as there is a dog heaven and animals have souls). Doesn't argue, does what he's told and lets things roll off his back .

I think Collin was more defiant and she 'put him in his place' as a toddler and tries to keep him down, knowing she has the upper-hand...for now.She has the power to withhold affection and to punish him and prevent him from joining in with the others in fun activities and seeing Jon

Who'd have thought Hannah would 'turn' on her so soon? I think Kate might be worried about who is next.

Dmasy said...

I didn't see Kate's birthday show.

Reading about Collin's gift squeezes my heart. That poor little guy.

I think of all the "strange" purchased and home made gifts I received from my son. His heart was in each one. (I still have the rock shaped like PacMan!)

She is cruel and insensitive and does not see the world through the eyes of her children.

It is a sin that she is allowed to run roughshod over their hearts and souls.

Wow just reading this makes me so damn sad.

My mom and I share the same birthday month so one day my nephew brought us stuffed tigers with his own money.

He was so sweet and excited when he gave to us..I'm not really a stuffed animal person but when it gave to me from his heart I couldn't help but to love it.

Kate is such and ass-hole Jon was right so glad I didn't want her last night.

I get my mom a singing card fro her b-day ever year and she loves it. Or pretends to lol.

Kate also said a on another special that Collin's style of dress was strange..he liked button-down shirts and ties. How many of us who have had boys would be pleased to have a son wear nice clothes for appropriate occasions rather than talk them out of jeans, grubby sneakers and a graphic T?

*************
It just strikes me that most moms (celebrating their birthday) on vacay with their kids (should they be so fortunate) would most enjoy watching their kids have fun.
Maybe a dinner to celebrate mom but really, having the kids spend so much time (which is to say, filming) on Kate and her cake and her presents seems so selfish.
I'd feel BAD if my kids wasted an opportunity at a gorgeous beach resort by being inside baking a cake and shopping for touristy trinkets!
Let's face it, it says more about Kate that NO ONE is there to take her kids out to buy her gifts than anyone else.
I'm pretty sure Jon continues to help the kids get her gifts, but even if he didn't, how about family and friends?
It's astounding that they are all gone and tells me that no, Kate doesn't let any family see the kids.

For everything Kate wants people to pity her for, there's either the truth that she's lying about her situation, or, a simple solution that she can employ, but won't.

I really don't get how anyone can watch these lavish vacations and think "Oh, no mom deserves this more than Kate Gosselin!!".

That was a cruel thing to do to any child. SHAME ON YOU KATE! This says a lot about your parenting skills: they SUCK!

This also shows that Kate does play favorites, does treat the tups as a unit/6 pk/team and joined at the hip/ and not as individuals.

Is Colin the one who likes to wear dressy clothes, like shirts & ties? Remember when they had to pick out clothes for their 10th birthday and one tup boy wanted to wear shirt & tie, and Kate thought he was goofy & strange for choosing that. So what did she want him to wear/ Ed Harding? Some sport team shirt?, which I don't think any of these boys have a team. If they do, I hope Jon encourages them.

I have a really hard time when parents, like all the rest of the other kids gifts and single one out for making fun of. As my Mother told me a long time ago: one day you might be a parent or will be around child, you encourage them not belittle them. If the gift they give you is a piece of clay with their fingerprints in it, and the rest bought you store bought, then you treat that gift, the same as the store bought. It is the thought, that counts. You say that is beautiful.

K8 scene from that episode, almost reminds me of the pilot episode of the Waltons. There is a scene in there in which MaryEllen want to put a birds nest in the Xmas tree, and one of the other kids tell her that is dirty & disgusting to put in the Xmas tree, and they argue and Johnboy says, it's beautiful, and puts it in the tree. That is how Kate should have handle it, say that is beautiful, and thank him, not shoot down/belittle the kid. SHAME ON YOU KATE!

Poor schmoopy, no one takes her kids out to buy her presents. I wonder how many times she's taken them out to buy gifts for their dad's birthday or father's day, or gifts for their grandparents or cousins. Yeah, didn't think so.

I was looking at the comparison photos of Kate in her wedding dress, and her "girls" straining to free themselves in her rockin' bikini top in Mexico!) Geeze, and the sheeple believe that she didn't have implants?
********************************
OMG, I actually watched this nonsense last night...it came on just after The Little Couple and I was preparing to change channels when I became curious.

Those watermelons trying to escape that bikini top are ridiculous and way, way too big for her body.

In addition to the fact that Kate hasn't changed (I don't have the energy to go into her psyche), I was blown away by Mady's absolute rudeness and intolerable behavior. It was hard to watch.

Prepare yourself for good ratings. Her twitter t/l was really busy last night, and the topic, Kate vacationing is Mexico and going to a bar and wearing a bikini...that's going to bring in a lot of the teens and 20 somethings.

What I find so appalling is that Kate doesn't even try to hide her disdain for Collin when it's being filmed and then put out there for the masses to see. It makes one wonder what kind of hell that poor boy has to endure on a daily basis when the cameras aren't around. This bitch is so vile, she makes me sick to my stomach.

OT-- True Detective
This is what television can be! I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it, but did you catch all of the clues to sexual dysfunction among all of the main characters? Did you see the books on Ani's coffee table? How many knives she has? Did you catch her Greek Mythological name? Antigonne does not live happily ever after.
What about the bird mask in the passenger seat? It's also a reference to Apollo.
Every exquisite sentence and screen frame is purposely riddled with depth and vision. Even the brand of the sleeping bag with a nod to last year! Nic Pizzolatto is genius!

If anyone wants to talk in depth about the show come to reddit where we scrutinize every moment. Such an intelligent program!!

Anyone who defends her treatment of Collin and his thoughtful gift is just as sick and cruel as Kate.

How long do you freeze them? Do you just put them into the freezer, or do you need trays? How long do they stay frozen once they are removed? Do they get freezer burn if you don't use them right away?

lol! Sheeple channeling.

Seriously though, if they're from Kate's bosom, they're already frozen from being so close to her cold, cold heart. It pumps ice through those veins.

This whole Collin thing brings credence to the reports that the kids have complained to Jon about how Collin is treated. She is evil

JudyK said...

Kate's treatment of Collin was despicable. Poor little guy just keeps trying for a smudgeon of approval and just keeps getting rejected.

As far as the relationship between Deanna and Kate, I don't believe it. I don't see any friendship chemistry whatsoever between them, and, frankly, Deanna seems a bit vapid to me. Well, maybe they do have something in common.

Anonymous said...

Just reading about Collin's gift of a bear and a cub and saying, "It's you and me" breaks my heart. It appears to be his way of saying, "You're my mother too, don't forget about me". The ungrateful bitch just dismissed his gift apparently which speaks to how desparately he must feel ignored.

About the bikini wearing in front of the children - the boys in particular - it's not just the bikini but the constant spilling out of whatever top she is almost wearing at any time that I consider inappropriate (to say the least) in front of all eight.

Looking forward to Admin's take on the show. In the meantime thanks to all who brought themselves to watch and comment.

I noticed how Kate kept her arms close to her body while on camera in her bikini to hide her lack of a waist, which was clearly evident particularly in one of the photos.

Sorry, I didn't watch. What did she do to poor Colin?!

High Sodium Content said...

I was flipping between TLC/HGTV. Two of the girls and 2 boys went to decorate the cakes. What I don't like is that again, Collin was left behind. He was seen alone on the beach. No one playing with him. Something is definitely wrong in the house where he is concerned. That poor boy needs rescuing. Kate was very rude about his cute gift. She is horrid.

Alberta Girl said...

She complains about all the chaos in her house, but as we all know, she's the one that creates and perpetuates it. Who in their right mind, thinks it's ok to play a joke on their kids, knowing they would get upset?? Kids stomping off and crying - you know this is a common occurrence in their house, as she didn't bat an eye, or even attempt to console them. Why did it have to be mean? ( I know why-she's a controlling bitch, but this is ridiculous!).
The cake could have easily said "We're going to Mexico".

If she's the best mom ever, according to the sheeple, I must have missed the part in the handbook that says to humiliate your kids for a laugh, or a quick buck whenever possible. Let's get on that moms!

She does that to push her bazoooooms closer together to further the look of abundant cleavage.

Let's throw tomatoes said...

Poor Collin! He's always going to remember her response to his gift. She's such a horrible person. Kate is never, ever going to change. If she's that bad in front of a camera can you imagine what she's like behind close doors?
My mother had many similarities to Kate. When I went to Hawaii I brought my mother a cute salad bowl and a box of candy. She takes the gifts and hands them to my sister( her golden child ) and tells her " I don't want them you take them". It took about an hour for me to pick up my jaw from the floor and that's after growing up in her household! Kate is never going to change.

Okay Tucker's Mom (160) I'll take the bite. What does " This. " mean??

chefsummer #Leh said...

Wasn't Collin the one who set up the books for the book sale and Kate knocked the all off the self telling him "do you think this is a good job"

Vapid describes her.

And you'd think since she's a make-up "artist" to the stars, she'd jazz herself up a bit. She reminds me of Mayim Bialik's character Amy on Big Bang Theory.

Maybe if she hangs out with Kate long enough, TLC will foot the bill for a good bra and a chin osteotomy for her because the poor woman is as homely as a mud fence.

FACT: I have absolutely no compunction for saying nasty things about anyone who caters to TFW.

Do you think that she HAD to take the kids with to Mexico to get it paid for and get paid for doing it? They sure wouldn't want to follow only her around for days and try to make an hour episode out of it.

Sandylove said...

A couple of things that stood out to me on last night's show (sorry, yes I watched).

1. The girls talk over each other while on the couch, constantly interrupting each other. etc. No respect for each other.

2. Deanna has the personality of a limp noodle. But she definitely looked younger than 40 to me, especially being next to Kate.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I am so saddened to hear that TFW teased C about that sweet
gift. That scene was filmed, so it really happened. It's not some
"hater" story invented to make TFW look bad. If it had appeared,
word for word, in the National Enquirer, the fans would've jumped
all over it, saying it was nonsense, and TFW would appreciate
any gift from her precious children, on whom the sun rises and
sets.

I'll say it again -- at least one of those kids will leave home one day
and never look back. The "Gosselin Kids: Where Are They Now?"
specials will not be pretty, I predict. I hope I'm wrong.

Let's throw tomatoes said...

Below the space where you can write a comment is an advertisement for the hotel where Kate stayed. It's freaking nice! They have a birds eye view where you see the hotel and the beach/ ocean. Very fancy dancy! I can't believe this horrible person/mother not only gets a free trip but a high end one. Makes you think why mean people are so lucky.

Talking about horrible people did anyone read on Yahoo about that ass hole from New York who beat his dog with a shovel and buried it in the snow. He was charged with animal cruelity and while in court he flipped off the judge. What?????????

TLC stinks said...

CLASSLESS. Why doesn't the bitch wear a sarong wrap??

getoftweeter said...

Ingrid: originally, according to the original clip, Kate said that Generations invited her to come to their resort.

I think Kate was grifting for a mini vacation, for her & one of the loverboys, or just her & Deanna, and maybe Jamie and a few others, you know a girls trip. And probably what happen, most of the others could not go. And then TLC came to film or Kate ran this so-call girls trip by them, and they said no, but if you take the kids with, we will pay you, and pay for the whole trip, so we can film.

I think this is what happened. Cause, Kate sure was not really pleased about taking the kids to Mexico. She was excited as watching the light change. The excitement was not there. They tried to put on a show, sorry did not work.

I did not watch the episode, only the clip. That was enough! nine minutes of my life I will not get back!

TLCStinks: yeah, the tabs might say that, but the comments don't. A few say, she looks great, but she had work done. Others say, she looks great for a 47 year old, who had work done. Some others said, nice to be able to have work done and not pay for it.

So, if Kates PR is putting this out there it is back firing.

Well, Deanna's an enabler and a "yes" person. Looks-wise, in her defense, I think she looks natural and hasn't gone for plastic surgery to enhance/fix anything.
Kate makes most people look like an albino next to her!
Jeez, I get some nice color in the summer, but that trip was filmed in March. I look like a bleached my legs in March!
Kate obviously hit the tanning bed HARD before that trip. Deep, tropical tan, no lines.
I noticed one fan seriously questioned if she fake bakes, and was quite concerned. Of course, Kate ignored that tweet.

JoyinVirginia said...

Granny in Nebraska, yes indeed we are watching the UVA team! I was flipping between that and flip or Flop. Very exciting! I have friends who are UVA alum and they are beside themselves with excitement!

Sad but true said...

According to this:

http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/showbuzzdailys-top-100-tuesday-cable-originals-6-23-2015.html

Kate had the 30th most popular CABLE show on last night, with just over 1mm viewers. Looks like the demographics for her pretty much suck, with greatest segment being over 50 (not the advertisers' target audience). The 9 p.m. showing of Little Couple, her lead-in, was ranked 15th and drew 600K more viewers than her. I guess they didn't give her much of a headwind, huh?

MikeB said...

And we have the ratings from Showbuzz: 1.077 million viewers and a 0.31 share.

Higher than the "Decade of Kate" special on Monday but still down a lot from the last specials. The January specials averaged 1.5 million and the Mother's Day special garnered 1.25 million.

Looks like Kate's rockin' bikini bod didn't do a whole lot to draw the viewers in. Of course Kate doesn't realize that she isn't the show's appeal. With the focus on her 40th birthday I think a lot of the fans of the kids watched other things. I'm betting next weeks episode of the tups turning 11 has higher ratings.

Call Me Crazy said...

My heart breaks for Colin. Her cruelty knows no bounds.

Let's throw tomatoes said...

Thanks for the clarification Tucker's Mom!!

Kate is such a liar. The hotel did not call her. What probably happened was Kate gave TLC a list of places she wanted to travel to and they have a department or person who sets up the trips. TLC representative called the hotel and made arrangements for Kate and family, friends, and crew to stay at the hotel for free or at a discount . In exchange for filming Kate+8, and free advertisement . That hotel is on my freaking iPad and I didn't even know it existed. The only reason I know about Carmen Del Rey is that it's been on House Hunters International a few times. But apparently Kim/Kourtney K. and other celebrities have stayed there.

I really do believe that Kate is to lazy to do anything. Everything is done for her.

What?? Kate's fake hanging out boobs didn't bring her high ratings. If Kate can not bring the high ratings with a trip to a beautiful location, turning 40 , showing a lot of skin and the kids that's a huge fail. I think the ratings are going to go down next week.

Kate is like a fly. Flying around is okay but if she lands on your food it's like YUCK get away from me! LOL

I would like to know how this guy gets his numbers. He has shows in the top 30 that TVBytheNumbers doesn't have in their Top 100.

Jane said...

Didn't watch the show - I just can't do it any longer - but based on what I've read here and elsewhere I have to add my disgust for what she did to Collin. Kids remember the hurt, especially when they've tried so hard to please their mom. It's just heartbreaking.

Robert called this one years ago. He knew Collin was the child she most disliked and he tried to bring this to the media's attention. If he has more information, now would be the time to release it. It concerns me that he remains silent and I waiver between wondering if it's a health issue (there was chatter that he was quite ill) or if he was paid to keep quiet. Or maybe he's just tired of accumulating legal fees for what seems to be no purpose.

Formerly Duped said...

What does Kate mean the first time the kids truly got gifts for her? They were given money, as they also were in Maine, although she says she saves their money in a bank envelope at home ( weird system) but she has bragged before that the kids really buy her gifts at Xmas and her b-day!?

TLC 'bought' those gifts and while it's sweet the kids selected things for their mother, don't push it, Kate.And don't demean your son's sweet choice
