Jacob Roloff: "Just because the adults say it's what's best, doesn't mean it's what's best"

The youngest star of TLC's Little People, Big World, who has been filming the show since he was about seven years old, has been speaking out more frequently about his dislike of filming and his desire to protect other reality stars from a childhood played out on T.V. screens


Jacob recently met Jack Hamill, star of Our Little Family. Jacob had this to say on Instagram about the encounter (click to enlarge): 



The post garnered more than 2,500 likes in less than fourteen hours. (On average, Jacob's Instagram posts get 800-1200 likes each).

Well done, Jacob, and keep speaking out. You have a unique perspective not many others can claim to possess

It is so infuriating that this woman does not have to work to make a living! She gets paid a ton of money to take vacation after vacation, while working people could barely afford one such vacation. Talk about entitlement!

Ugh, Florida in August. Have at it and ENJOY that!

I have to admit it is frustrating. How many vacations do you really need in one year? At what point are kids SPOILED by this? Anyone who travels a lot will usually say it gets tiring after awhile and the novelty wears off.

I wonder if it ever crosses her mind how many Make a Wish kids would enjoy a trip to Disney or Florida.

Oh I bet they're doing another clip show flashback to a previous Disney trip. Filler.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Looks like some of the kids finagled bringing friends along.

I wonder how long it will be before the younger six catch on and refuse to film without friends. One each, then two each? Haha, Kate and 18 teenagers. See how much fun a vacation is then. She deserves every bit of it.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Localyocul (#1), yes, the fact that she actually EARNS money
taking her 8 children on a vacation just sounds like the scam
of the century. And still contends that she's just an average mom.

Who's the lucky BFF of the week/traveling companion for TFW
this time? Deanna again? Jamie? Emily?

TLC stinks said...

They are flying to Florida??? Where did that come from?

LOL, TFM does have her big, black purse!!!!

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

She just recently said something too about never getting to leave her house. She is pathological.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

It IS the scam of the century, getting paid to go on vacation. You can't even say it's like she's on a business trip. Not at ALL. It's not like she has to spend all her waking hours--when the beach is calling---in board meetings and traveling to various offices and you never get a chance to see the sites. Not only does she get paid to travel but she gets paid to do normal vacation stuff.

localyocul said...

On the flip side, remember how freaked out she got on the RV trip because people were taking their pics? How upset she got at Jon for spilling the beans about going to "Korea" (heh heh)? They'll know where we're going!!!! Well those days are long gone. They are outed everytime they go anywhere and it's instantly tweeted haha

TLC stinks said...

Ok, missed the other tweet. Panama City Beach? With friends? Wow. Wonder what excuse she'll use to explain this free vacay. No doubt they'll be right on the beach in a big ass house. I guess she couldn't talk TLC.into the really expensive NC vacay she loves. But really? Another beach vacay??? It definitely looks like filming because some of the crew was there at the airport waiting to board. Freaking unbelievable. TLC is soooo dumb.

TLC stinks said...

More bikini shots, more boat trips yadda yadda.

Well, I hope people tweet all week long. Maybe this time she and Steve will get caught. They do like their alone time at dinner. There are tons of vacationers at Panama City. She'll be watched, LOL.

jamezvader1194 said...

I think its tiring bout how her sheep love to go on and on bout how because shes a mom of 8 she can't work a 9 to 5 job when there are real hardworking mothers out there that work their butts off to support their kids and leah in an episode has stated that "mommy never spends time with us."So we know Kate doesn't even spend time with her kids when they go on vacation.Kate never seems to even appreciate her kids,come to think of it,has she ever hugged,kiss or even say i love you to any of her kids in these specials?She rarely disciplines them and when they do act out she ignores it and whines about her life.I just don't see how because she takes a vacation with her 8 while filming makes her a hard working mother.

I was thinking the same thing, but last week when I checked the weather conditions in Florida, it was actually hotter here and more humid than in central Florida. Go figure! You just never know.

PA Dutch Mom said...

&&&&&&&&

Yes, you either see her in her kitchen or at Target or the grocery store (whatever it was). I guess wherever they are going, there is a kitchen and she'll be filmed there, as well as in the toilet paper aisle at Target.

Gladys! UGGS!

Or maybe that Austin fellow. Oh, wait...he's too busy chit-chatting and flirting with Kirstie about her "racks" and how sexy she is, and DM'ing Leeann. He's really strange. I wouldn't want him around my kids. He is the male version of UGGS.

Yep, she's at the airport.

TLC stinks said...

But Admin, remember that she may get to enjoy normal vacation stuff, but the kids only get to do fun stuff only during filming. Just think about the pumpkin patch and how they raced through that for filming. There is a production schedule to follow. The kids don't get to relax, but mommy does with all her helpers.

I am shocked parents allow their kids to go on this trip, particularly after that fiasco of a birthday party. Some of the Gosselin kids are out of control. I guess some of the parents are blinded by the idea their kid is going to be on a TV show so whatever.

PA Dutch Mom said...

I would like to know how she talks them into this. What kind of hold does she have over them?

I thought "her" show was cancelled way back when. It certainly doesn't look like it. Thank goodness school starts in three weeks.

PA Dutch Mom said...

lol!! Here we go with the cookies again! Do you freeze them? How many in a pack? How long will those last? Do you put them into their lunches frozen, or defrost them first? Are they huge cookies, or tiny ones? RECIPES PLEASE!

Kelsi Barton ‏@mkbarton13 43m43 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 How many dozens of cookies are you making for school this year?

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Another thing an average mom would have to worry about for a
vacation is the additional expense of pet care. Who's going to
watch Shoka while she's away? And Zorro? Not to mention the
fish and the chickens. Depending on how long they're away, that
could add several hundred dollars to a trip budget. But I'm sure
it's all covered by TLC.

Come to think of it, a nice mom might have neighbors and friends
and -- gasp! -- relatives who would gladly cover shifts for pet care.
But the mom in question doesn't fall into that category.

TLC stinks said...

As the producer, TLC is allowing her to come up with these show ideas. Of course she pushes for these vacations. She gets to be pampered, eat out, helpers watch the kids and she has her time with TFM. And it's free and she pockets $40k. Sounds like she's got it all figured out except for one thing...she has to draw in viewers. And how many times are people going to want to watch this entitled woman and her entitled not-so-well-behaved kids romping around on the beach doing the same damn stuff year after year? What is TLC thinking? Are they that desperate to fill air time? I guess the answer is yes.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Except for the next few hot days it's going to be high 70's low 80's in southern PA all week. Sounds beautiful.

It's going to be above 90 every single day in Florida, with massive thunderstorms expected every afternoon. The kids are going to have to hop out of the pool or ocean every day and go inside. Typical August weather. No thanks. Her fingerprints are all over this dumb idea. I think she is helping to decide what they'll do and her vacations are unoriginal and more and more of the same. Wow, another beach. If she wants to keep the show on the air it would be wise to start getting more creative. She is so new money I laugh.

I bet it's pretty simple. No fun, beach, vacations, unless you film.

That will work for now. It won't work when they get to be Jacob's age and realize there's more to life than beaches, and that it's not worth going through what they are just to get to some dumb beach. They're just not quite there yet--but they will be.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Reading tweets from people who spotted TFW and the kids at the
airport, I have to chuckle when I remember during an early J&K+8
trip how she made a point of putting tape over their names on
their backpacks for security purposes! That fool sold their
privacy, and in some ways their entire childhood, the minute
she submitted her audition tape to get a series. She truly
does not care about protecting them. Actions speak louder
than words.

Yep. I just heard the weather report for the rest of August and they are saying warm and comfy with a few days of thunderstorms, but that's to be expected. We have to get through the next few days, though. There's no question that Florida in August can be brutal, but remember Kate loves hot weather and they'll have the beach and swimming, and she and the Monkey can have beautiful nights together under the stars.

But another beach vacation? Watch Kate and the kids play in the waves! See Kate rock that bikini! Step right up, folks, but don't cross the security area that's blocked off with yellow police tape! Only twenty five cents, one fourth of a dollar for this sideshow!

I'd love to see a meet and greet with Milo and Kate's Florida buddies. TLC crew would be standing by with smelling salts. Milo's knees would give out and she'd sink into the sand. Now that would be worth watching!

Jane said...

I've been in Florida for a few days on a combined business pleasure trip and the weather is like living in hell with humidity. Beyond oppressive. There are monsoon-like storms at least once a day if not more. It's really not a great place to be, even on the beach. Isn't this near where she went when there was thought Milo lent her a house?

Sad but true said...

I wonder if Cara was forced to give up lacrosse this summer for the sake of filming. To say nothing of whatever else (nothing, most likely) the other kids might have had going on. I still can't believe that TLC/Kate is allowed to take these children out of state/country whenever they want AGAINST their father's wishes. There is something just so not right about that.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I hope not. It would be very hard for a child that age to participate in an intensive summer activity with this sort of schedule.

That's another thing that is going to start to annoy these kids. Increasingly they're going to be making summer plans of their own that might not work with filming. Then what happens?

It's dangerous, and it's like that all summer long.

I was there in late May once for a two week training. In Lakeland. Almost every afternoon about 5 there was a gigantic lightning storm. I saw lightning come down outside the conference room and hit the parking lot, bam. It was so close my hair stood up on my arms.

In my hometown the Northeast, Florida is very popular. In February. No one goes in the summer. There's no point to it. The weather is just as muggy if not muggier and the thunderstorms are much worse. Add into that the risk of hurricanes and it's avoided like the plague.

She burns easily and is pale. I've never seen someone so naturally pale love the sun so much. I'm very pale and burn easily and a lot of sun time makes me feel sick and uncomfortable. Northern Europeans are very sensitive. Does she really love the sun this much or is this just what she THINKS rich people do with their time? I suspect the latter. In many ways she's just like Milo, wanting to do things she thinks other people do, with little evidence she honestly has her own independent wants and desires. And she always gets it just a little bit off, which is amusing.

YooHoo sheeple! She's romping on the beach. No time for the lowly sheeple. TLC is giving her what she needs and she certainly doesn't need the fans right now!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I can't imagine she pitched Florida as the vacation spot. I bet she
started with London or Paris, or at least Los Angeles. At least somewhere out of that mediocre ol' PA time zone. She
may have been sorely disappointed that it was only Florida.

But for TLC's part, this isn't some ridiculously expensive
trip to fund, and they have some guaranteed eyeballs when it
airs, which they may not get with a new show.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Over And Out (#36), I think the fans read here and found out about
the trip, and are trying to be coy. So they're "yoo hoo"-ing their
dear friend TFW, hoping it was a mere oversight that she forget
to inform them of her super fun summer trip. She'll be responding
any minute now, when she realizes her error! #TrueFriend

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Oh she tried London or Paris first and the consolation prize was Florida. I bet they told her no going out of the country.

I was thinking this is a cheap gig for TLC too.

They can get group rates, and August is actually off season for Florida for all the reasons we mentioned including heat, storms, and hurricanes. You get the hurricane risk discount on many purchases! She might even be using some sheeple's time share, like Em, for extra savings.

They're looking for filler, and this is cheap filler.

+++++++++++++++++

She never did get her Caribbean cruise, did she?

We had a winter home on the Gulf Coast. Winter. August was dreadful, but we did go a few times during the summer just to get away. The last time we were there in August it was so hot that the poor take-out delivery guy could hardly make it from his car to our porch, and he was a native Floridian. It was *that* hot. Going outside during the day was self-imposed punishment. We dumped bags of ice in the spa just to cool down the water. I think it was the hottest August they had in more than a century! We were lucky, though. No hurricanes that month.

I think TLC and Kate have a love/hate relationship. I mean really, who likes her? Even those a-holes probably think she's a nasty pain in the butt so when they need some kind of special to film, they send her off to some place where they know she'll be miserable. In my experience, heat and humidity brings out the worst in people. And just when we think she can't get any worse, she surprises us. That's the lure that drags in viewers.

If I recall, that was Gulf Shores, Alabama, (Relax on the Beach vacations) west of Panama City, Florida, about three hours away, I think.

Thanks, KIAT! I actually went to JibberJabbers website looking for that picture, but couldn't find it. I love the magazine covers that she made with TFW, especially the one with the bikini. So funny!

I can't believe she is going on another TRIP!
Yes, Sheeple, she is romping on the beach, right now in her 40K pile of CASH that she is banking getting TLC to film the daylights out of the children before school starts.

I hope Cara hasn't missed any lacrosse!

redbird said...

I have a problem to talk to you about. I know someone who I love dearly who has 2 Australian Shepherd dogs that are so wonderful. She has gotten to the point where she cannot take care of them anymore. She is extremely highly allergic to fleas. One nit flea will bite her and she has to take a shower and it is very stressful and she is exhausted when she is done.

She has tried everything to stop the fleas but to no avail. She has not even petted them in about 2 to 3 years. They are outside dogs. She feeds them and they come to her back door and she will get close to the glass and blow them kisses and then they a girl and a boy will kiss on each other, then they run off to play in the creek in the woods.

She is heartbroken about this. But she wants them to stay together. The boy dog lost his companion and he grieved so loud she could hear him in the house. Her son brought a girl dog and they are just love bugs now. She is 72, on O2 and just not able to do it anymore.

They are beautiful and very smart. They make a great team and are outstanding guard dogs. Every time ya'll talk about your dogs and how you take such good wonderful care of them. Does anyone in here know of someone willing to take them? But the stipulation is they have to stay together. It would traumatize them to be separated. A big farm for them to explore would be wonderful.

She has called the breed's rescue and talked to the lady and she said they didn't have a rescue in her area.

Kate is a twit said...

They filmed the birthday special on Jun 5 and they filmed the back to school shopping on July 17, and now 2 weeks later they're flying off to Florida to film again.

Kate had also tweeted this on July 12th, which could have also referred to filming in June and possibly July 4th:

Kate Gosselin ‏@Kateplusmy8 · Jul 12
We’ve been working on some fun stuff here... Can’t wait to SHOW you... #PatienceIsAVirtue 😉

So it seems like the kids have been "working" for most of their school vacation. Seems the only time they get a break is when they're with Jon, and according to his instagram they were with him on July 11th and 26th.

What a "fun" summer!!

I'm sure in another week, Kate will be complaining about all the stuff SHE has to do to get the kids ready for school. She'll be baking the cookies, and complaining about the summer reading that hasn't been finished, etc. etc. etc.

Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Eight is More Than Enough said...

How old were the younger Kardashian girls before they were being used as sex fodder and romantic type drama? TLC might be looking at C and M for that. Or are they trying to stay wholesome and family oriented now that they don't have the Duggars to fill that spot. Will Katie and the G family be doing charity work in Florida? Other than the Katie Irene Gosselin Foundation for Poor Single Mothers of Eight Children.

How low do the ratings have to be for them to consider any more Plus 8 a loss? Or will that number never come because these are specials instead of seasons?

Is lacrosse a fall sport? I thought that was a spring sport; hockey, soccer and tennis are played in the fall.

jamezvader1194 said...

This is kinda like the Mexico trip,where they're going to the beach again.Seriously TLC,if they're just going to rinse and repeat then just give up on Kate already.@AuntieAnn It maybe possible that they keep her cause like some say shes filler until TLC find another new idea for a show or maybe the other NEW reality families will have more viewers and once TLC sees this,they'll kick kate to the curb.Like i said alot,her show was cancelled once because they were running out of ideas,its happening again,so i hope and pray for the gosselin kids that this maybe the end of Kate and filming.

Sleepless In Seattle said...

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

The thing is that she doesn't care if she's filler or if it's cheap. She gets to play celebrity; she gets a free vacation; and she laughs all the way to the bank while giving Jon the finger. She also has her adoring fans drooling all over her while she live tweets during the show and thrills them with "that's a follow." She also gets to be with Flying Monkey. What more could a girl ask?

God she makes me want to slap her.

Off in her goo goo land never a care in the world even the job she has to pimp her kids out gives her a house of luxury.

My husband and I are both professionals. We WORK unless I am sick. After about a month in usually all of my sick days are gone and I lose 300 dollars a day if I'm gone so I have to decide if I am sick enough to stay home and risk that money or go to work sick.

As a result, we have to down size. Going from a quad level home with 4 bedrooms, 2 bath and 2 living rooms with a complete basement is too much for my illness and if I miss days well, then things don't get paid....SO we are looking at selling our home that I absolutely love to an apartment.

I work my ass off and still may lose my life. That bitch does NOTHING and flits all over the country and lives in a mansion ....she does not deserve it. God DAMMMMM I am mad

Pam, I understand your frustration, and I'm sorry that you are not well. You said that both you and your husband are professionals. Is he employed as well, on the same salary scale? I'm not nosy Milo, but just curious if you could both live on his salary so you could take time off.

The day will come when Kate will reap what she sows. I know it doesn't seem like it now because she gets everything thrown her way. I've never seen anything like this, but one day she will find herself alone, playing Norma Desmond, and people will say, "Kate who? Never heard of her."

Her show was cancelled because the ratings weren't enough to sustain it. No viewers. No advertisers. No show.

Redbird--
There is a website called Petfinder.com that shelters use to list their dogs. You can search the website for shelters in her area that are no-kill, that will use Petfinder, which has a national presence to find new owners. There are many small facilities that will foster dogs until a home is found.

I found Conmet at a small shelter in Palo Alto. The woman who ran the shelter drove 6 hours to meet halfway from Seattle. I already had a Labradoodle, and wanted a second. she had many inquiries, but gave him to me because they wanted someone who had experience with the breed.

Another option is using Craigslist. I'm sorry she has to give up her pets. Aussies are an extremely popular breed, so hopefully she will find a good home.

Sleepless In Seattle said...

She has tried everything to stop the fleas but to no avail. She has not even petted them in about 2 to 3 years.

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

What is "everything?" Flea collars, sprays and powders generally don't work. I get once-a-month liquid applications from the vet. It also come in oral form. I haven't seem one flea in years.

Is the reason she wants to find homes for them because of the fleas, or because she can no longer care for them due to her physical limitations?

Most sports these days have year round travel teams or camps. Lacrosse is no exception. In fact if a kid isn't playing something at least two seasons a year he is probably going to be sitting on the bench while the other kids with more year round practice time play. A quick google search shows there is a huge summer travel league/college recruiting league in southern PA called Ultimate Lacrosse. I would be shocked if Cara didn't both know about that and want to take part.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I don't think the media has picked up on this comment, but in looking at the Minor Consideration FB page, a former child soap opera star just disclosed that he was molested on set. He was on a major soap, All My Children:

"Michael Bersell I worked for 2 years on a show. I went to work by myself every day and hung out with adults all day. I became a victim as well. I never really realized what happened until I was a grown man in my thirties. I live with the regret that I never told anyone and the reality that the predator undoubtedly did the same to others."

On a side note, notice how he says he didn't understand it until his 30's. When the Duggars keep saying the girls didn't even know what happened to them, that's because many children CAN'T process what happened to them at that young age. What does that have to do with how bad it was? In fact I wonder if the worse the abuse is the more they can't understand it. A little kid could probably explain well my brother put his hand on my private parts. But if something more happens, they might find themselves speechless and confused. And find their mother and father saying, see, they didn't even know!

TLC stinks said...

Interesting article in the Washington Post this morning about how celebs will not appear on info entertainment shows unless their talking points are strictly adhered to by the interviewer. Plus there are the connections between TV networks. No wonder Kate has NEVER been asked hard questions. This article refers to big name celebrities like Tom Cruise and how he is never questioned about Scientology. It's more important to snag the interview than be a real journalist. Shameful that the celebrities are protected. It's just as we always known, there are TLC's talking points and Kate has those answers memorized. Maybe the tabloids are serving a good purpose.

He was on All My Children, but he was only on for a few months. He played Bobby Martin, who in one show went up to the attic to get his skis and never appeared again. I was an avid watcher of AMC at that time, and my friends and I used to joke and wonder whether he would ever come down from the attic. Several years later, when Chuck Cunningham(Richie's brother) disappeared from Happy Days, we'd joke that he probably went to help Bobby Martin find his skis.

Michael Bersell later appeared on another soap "Where The Heart Is". He was on that show for 2 years, and is probably the show that he references in that post, not AMC. He was 12 at that time he appeared on AMC and when he started on Where The Heart Is.

Here's an article about him from 2011, the year that AMC stopped airing on ABC.

I have a problem to talk to you about. I know someone who I love dearly who has 2 Australian Shepherd dogs that are so wonderful. She has gotten to the point where she cannot take care of them anymore. She is extremely highly allergic to fleas. One nit flea will bite her and she has to take a shower and it is very stressful and she is exhausted when she is done.
***************
Althought there are highly effective topical flea and tick treatments out there, it sounds like these dogs would be best served finding another home where they can be with people who can love on them.
Find a no-kill shelter, like the local SPCA, and just sign them over.
There are no-kill shelters everywhere and no excuse to drop them off at al local pound.
Also, she should first work with her veterinarian to get any and all suggestions for good placement that will best position the dogs for adoption.

Interesting. Someone seems determined not to let this story fall to the bottom of the fodder file.

Cara played travel lacrosse last summer. There was one tournament where kids kept tweeting/instagramming about TFW being there. Someone else tweeted at the beginning of the summer that C was on her team. It was easy to see what club she was playing with..it was out of Lancaster County.

There was a big teen girl Lacrosse tournament near here last month with teams as far away as Long Island. I know because I got caught in traffic

Not trying to insult anyone but there is a section over near PCB that has a reputation of being called the Redneck Rivera . My husband grew up near there and that is what they called it.
Just struck a funny cord when Admin called Florida a consolation prize. From big bucks down under trips to the "Redneck Rivera "

Haha thats great. And behind door number three is....!

TLC stinks said...

Yep, I've heard it called that before too. Here's a definition:


Home of the best spring breaks, water parks for the kids, tattoo parlors, beer joints, crab shacks, burger barns and tee shirt boutiques. Plus more beach trash and trinkets than you can imagine. There are high-rise condominiums with beautiful drunk skinny girls on each floor. Panama City Beach makes tailgating at a NASCAR infield appear hoity-toity.

TLC stinks said...

The fans say Jon is lying about meeting Blankinship. Maybe, maybe not. The POINT is that this guy viewed all the stuff that was filmed, including naked young children. They are entirely focused on Jon, you know, the lying liar that lies. Nevermind that Kate is the biggest liar there ever was. At least Jon expressed outrage whereas Kate says "who?" Oh that is right. Anyone from Figure 8 is FAMILY.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Rednecks or Mensa members, it doesn't make a difference --
TFW isn't interested in interacting with anyone she meets.
Just give her a spa and a beach and some fancy meals, and
get her kids out of her sight. That's what a vacation is for her.

That's why her oft-repeated reasoning that trips give her kids
"culture" is so laughable. She has no intellectual curiosity, and
no interest in truly learning about the places they go and the
people who live there. For example, the Grand Canyon was
just a waste of space, and FDR is on Mt. Rushmore.

Anonymous said...

No way on god's green earth would I send a child of mine on that traveling vacation circus, nor allow them to be filmed during same, for a TLC exploitation experience. What a zoo. And yes, whoopie, a beach vacay in hot and humid Florida - same old, in spades.

Sue_Buddy said...

It's about time for lunch in sunny, humid Florida. Kate's probably famished after posing for a fucketyhundred hot body bikini shots and is in need of a couple lettuce leaves and an avocado slice at some trendy, overpriced sidewalk cafe that's been cleared of the mediocres so the Royal Family can be filmed for the usual screaming, hitting and pushing segment where Kate sing songs how she's now so mellow that nothing bothers her. She'll yell over the already chaotic scene asking what the kids want to eat then order what she thinks they should eat which will cause more screaming and hopefully some pouting and foot stomping. Then it's off to.......shop!!!!




I just can't wait to see it!

TLC stinks said...

TLC assigns their own photographer when they are filming, so yes, Sue Buddy, there will be photos of Kate rockin' that bikini with exclamations how young she looks.

Kate is a twit said...

I remember when Kate went to the Gulf Shores back in 2012. She tweeted up a storm and also tweeted pictures. They actually drove to Alabama instead of flying.

But now that TLC is paying, of course, she's on twitter silence. Maybe they don't allow her to tweet while they're filming. Can't give out any spoilers, can she?

I also remember(and double-checked) back in June 2012, some of her twitter girlfriends were trying to get together with her to either do a run or meet somewhere and go to a spa. Kate told them to make the plans and she'd be there.

However, when one of them suggested August, Kate tweeted:

Kate Gosselin ‏@Kateplusmy8 17 Jun 2012
@r3boz @saidbyjeannie @gypsi001 Aug is hard Bc my kids start sch so early...Ok dm/keep me postedviaemail.I don't always get to all my tweets

Yeah, August was hard for her to meet up with her tweeties, but not so hard for her to go on a beach vacay. Last year, they also filmed the NE trip in August. They were spotted at Plimoth Plantation on Aug. 11. This year, again, they're away in August.

Of course, in August 2013, they didn't go away, because she was busy getting ready for her book release and her lawsuit against Jon and Robert.

So the excuse she made to her tweeties about it being so "hard" due to school starting was pure BS. I've noticed that they never mentioned meeting up with her again.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I am curious about which HOOT (Helper On The Trip) has been
hired for this vacation. It used to kinda sorta make sense for
TFW to have an extra pair of eyes and ears and hands while
traveling with 8 little kids (although there was a TLC crew along,
as well as Steve). But for almost-15-year-olds and 11-year-olds?
And how come the helper is able to manage the 8 kids alone
when TFW goes off hither, thither and yon during these trips?

TLC stinks said...

I don't agree with those parents allowing their kids to be filmed, but I guess they figured it's a free vacay for their kid, so go.

Personally, I believe the only time Kate is with those kids is when they are filming. Period. The rest of the time it's the nannies who are watching them. I would love to know how many were employed for this trip. I really, really hope there are tweeters and instagramers who comment on what they witness.

Sad but true said...

Just a couple of weeks ago, Kate was still moaning about having turned 40 (3+ months earlier). And now we're to believe she "can't wait to be grandma"? At this point, I really wouldn't rule out full-blown schizophrenia. Or maybe just your garden-variety MPD.

There was a discussion last night about the August weather in Florida. Right now it's 91 in Destin. It's 90 here. If she likes it hot, she should have stayed around home and gone to a beach in Maryland, Delaware or NJ. TLC could have saved travel expenses.

BTW, several days ago, Milo tweeted this to Jamie:

@Pumpkinbottom3 You back home yet? I do believe last time we spoke...you were planning some traveling to meet w/sister & other family! :)

The last time she tweeted Jamie before this tweet was July 15. Sounds like Jamie was planning a vacation. Perhaps Jamie told Milo where she was going(with Kate).

I noticed that Milo deleted this tweet to Kate on the 31st:

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack 21m21 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 It's been 4days ago since Shoka kept U safe! Are you still hunkered down? :) It's Friday NITE! Movie nite?

Could be she deleted it because Jamie told her they were going away.

I guess it's only fair that if Kate took one BFF to Mexico, that she should take the other one to Florida.

Even if Kate would have met him, would she have remembered him? I imagine that she's met quite a few people in production and filming and he wouldn't even be a blip on her radar. She said that she doesn't see other people, and I believe it. She's all about Kate, and only Kate.

I would not be happy if a film crew showed up at the beach where I was trying to relax on my once-a-year paid-for-myself vacation. That looks just like the Food Network show I saw being fimled. The crew is right up their faces and make them do things over and over. FUN

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I seem to recall Jon saying he met Blankinship at a wedding. I buy that Kate might not remember that. It doesn't mean she didn't meet him. Regardless the point is not whether they met but rather the extent of his access to the children's footage. He doesn't need to meet anyone to have access to footage that someone with his problem shouldn't.

Exactly! Who cares if she met him or he met her or whatever? The fact is that he could very easily have worked with footage of those kids, and as a pedophile, the really frightening part is what he did with those clips and in whose hands they might have ended up. If I were Kate, or any other parent of kids who were filmed, this would cause me to lie awake at night.

Do you mean to tell me that they didn't clear the beach for them? How can that be? Steve slipping up on the job?

(Leslie)
Just catching up with past threads. I find Amy's apology insulting because I am certain Jacob made it loud and clear repeatedly through the many, many years of filming that he did not like it one bit. Even if he never said it verbally I am certain he showed it with his body language and facial expressions. Though I feel certain he did express his strong dislike numerous times to his parents and siblings. So therefore his parents knew throughout his childhood that he did like it at all. But did they care then? Hell no, it was more important to them to make tons of money filming their kids so they could drive Mercedes, buy lots of farm vehicles, enlarge their home, and buy plenty more farm acreage. They are as bad as Kate. And the only job that the father had was selling foot stools for small people in the beginning of their show. Also they ran a pumpkin selling business that other people basically did all the work. And the fighting that the parents did a few years ago was just as bad as the Gosselins when they were divorcing. But did they stop filming...NO! Again, the Roloffs are just as bad as Kate or even worse than she is.

These episodes will probably air during the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Last year's specials were originally supposed to be shown in December but they were pushed into January to coincide with Kate's Celebrity Apprentice appearance. December is a throwaway month since everyone is focused on holiday activities.

Hopefully this working vacation will be it for the kids filming this year and they can focus on their school work and after-school activities without the intrusion of TLC.

We thought that last year after they filmed the trip to Maine in August, but then they started filming again in September for the twins birthday, the room renovation and yard sale, with no consideration for their school work or activities.

The twins will be turning 15, and then they have Halloween, which I don't think they filmed last year. Maybe they'll even film Thanksgiving and Christmas, too.

As long as TLC cooperates, Kate will milk those kids for all their worth, to hell with what is good for the kids.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

One could make the argument it's actually more concerning she hasn't met him. Wouldn't any protective parent want to meet and be aware of every single person who has access to footage of their kids? Seems like a no brainer.

thuvia said...

If Kate and crew are in Destin, they should go up the road to Foley Ala and have a meal at Lamberts, home of the throwed rolls. Throwed rolls.com. At intervals a pitcher comes from the kitchen with a pan of fresh baked yeast rolls and hollers "throwed rolls" and if you put up a hand he will fire one at you. Kids might enjoy that, could do without the screaming that would come from their mom.
Good food and lots of it, fried shrimp especially.

This cannot possibly go on. It can't. Those girls have towels wrapped around them, how self conscious are they? They have to be somewhat embarrassed to be in the beach w a slew of camera people following them around. : (

Angie said...

We don't know what tlc is paying per episode, but wonder if tlc is now required to make the kid's part payable to a special account ? If so it would be great if kate couldnt access these funds.
Even if the funds are given solely to kate, whatever she's bringing in probably covers her mortgage, health insurance premiums,ect. Her living large comes with a higher price tag.
Some celebs make decent money from tv shows but the majority usually comes from endorsements-which kate has none of.
I bet she's barely meeting household expenses! (Which leads to a question i had last week-- what's she going to do when the kids grow up and filming stops?) -wait for lightening to strike twice? Lol

Just a reminder, when TFW is frolicking in her bikini on the beach,
it's not a private matter. Even if there was not another living soul
on the sand, the crew daddies were there. And this is being filmed. For posterity. Yes, TFW, your future grandchildren will be watching
you rock your 2-piece at the beach, while everyone else is covered
up. I suspect that at least some of the G kids cringe when they
think that Mr. or Mrs. Insert-Teacher's-Name-Here is going to
see Mom on TV spilling out of her bikini.

But if there are no background checks on the crew or editing, how would that help? I don't imagine that anyone at Trailblazer Studios saw any of that coming.

TLC stinks said...

Apparently Kate refuses to coverup her rockin' hard bikini bottom.

Angie, considering the pattern of Kate always wanting to film, it's highly likely she envisions filming à la Duggar with weddings and grand babies. It fits since already she tweeted about talking to the kids about their families all descending to the Gosselin hacienda for future Christmases. Nothing like starting a guilt trip early or brainwashing. Take your pick.

Over in TFW's County, you are right. Destin is very nice. The quote I gave you guys was about Panama City. World of difference. I've vacationed at Destin many times.

I wish someone would tweet if they are at a resort or a beach house. Just curious with all those kids, nannies (Jamie?) and Steve. Wonder where Steve sleeps since Kate always demanded at hotels adjoining rooms like someone was going to break in. Always sounded more like it made it easier to not get caught sneaking into the other's room. After all these years, the kids are probably very accepting of him as a surrogate daddy and mommy's companion.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Thuvia and Susan1956, those "throwed rolls" sound like a

pass it on to her.

Personally, I don't care if they are at a hotel or a rented beach house. I don't care if Kate rocks her inflatables in an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow bikini instead of a flattering one-piece in which she would look so much better. I don't care if Kate, Steve, Deanna, Jamie and Emily all sleep on top of each other on a sleeper sofa. I'll let nosy Milo ask those questions, hoping for an answer. She's obsessed with sleeping arrangements.

What I do care about is this woman has managed to grift yet another free vacation and continues to film the heck out of these kids. We thought all of this was over and done last year, but it continues and Kate's flipping the bird at everyone who said to stick a fork in her. She's not done and she knows it.

It appears that it will never end. I seems that TLC wasn't too disappointed in the ratings, or this nonsense would stop. Those kids are being used as nothing more than entertainment to fatten Kate's wallet, and that's despicable.

TLC stinks said...

If Kate was in Raleigh filming a pilot and the editing was being done right there at a studio in Raleigh, I personally think chances are good Kate was invited to that studio to watch the editing process of her filming in Raleigh. It would be a courtesy. If she's like me who is terrible at names but remembers faces, she could skirt the truth by saying she has no idea who he is. If we are to believe Jon who says he met Blankinship it just seems logical that Kate met him too. Bottom line: Kate is a liar. She has never spoken publicly once condemning TLC. And for her loyalty, she gets a callback for specials. She can never admit if she met Blankinship because then she's have to be outraged and that is never going to happened. TLC owns her.

Anonymous said...

I think TFW envisions years of 'Kate Plus 8 Teenagers' followed by engagement and wedding specials. She is hooked on the 'celebrity' drug she sampled years ago and that can't be replaced by anything close to what any of us consider normal.

angie said...

There's no way TLC will film this family forever. Ratings are already down from previous years, she isn't in their lineup, she's used as filler.

And face it, the kids aren't *that* cute or talented. Kate isn't cute at all, she's an unintelligent, plastic-shrew ball-buster with an extremely unpleasant personality.

She better figure out how to keep the money rolling it because every venture she's tried so far as been a complete failure. (marathon moma, clothing line, christian speaker, talk show host, dancer, couponer, cookbook author, just to name a few)....

I hope she doesn't plan on the kids siphoning her money from their mediocre career fields. Hopefully she'll marry rich and just.go.away. (She did say seasons ago (we don't live our life in seasons!) that when the kids hit 18 we'd never hear from them again.

I suspect that at least some of the G kids cringe when they
think that Mr. or Mrs. Insert-Teacher's-Name-Here is going to
see Mom on TV spilling out of her bikini.

&&&&&&&&&&&&

Locals, including Insert Name here, have seen her up close and personal in short shorts, hooker heels, bazooms straining to free themselves in halter tops. Nothing new here.

PA Dutch Mom said...

If Kate was in Raleigh filming a pilot and the editing was being done right there at a studio in Raleigh, I personally think chances are good Kate was invited to that studio to watch the editing process of her filming in Raleigh. It would be a courtesy

&&&&&&&&&&&

She may have been invited, but would she have shown any interest and have gone there? I doubt it. Would whatever have been filmed there ever made it to the studio to edit?

PA Dutch Mom said...

If we are to believe Jon who says he met Blankinship it just seems logical that Kate met him too. Bottom line: Kate is a liar.

&&&&&&

Did Jon say HE met BB, or did we say WE met BB? I don't remember. It's possible that Jon had been somewhere without Kate and met him. We just don't know, and to call her a liar because of this, well, I wouldn't do that, even though we've seen she's a habitual liar. There just is no proof here that she met him. There is no hard evidence, just circumstantial evidence and the possibility that she might have.

I'm just not sure what this even matters at this point. We know she lies through her teeth, so in the whole scheme of things, why is this important? If I were Jon and Kate, I'd want to know into whose hands that edited footage fell. That would be far more concerning to me than whether or not Kate met this guy.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

One could make the argument it's actually more concerning she hasn't met him. Wouldn't any protective parent want to meet and be aware of every single person who has access to footage of their kids? Seems like a no brainer.

**********

But if there are no background checks on the crew or editing, how would that help? I don't imagine that anyone at Trailblazer Studios saw any of that coming.


&&&&

It might not have prevented it at all. But it speaks to whether one is a good, protective parent.

This is the thing. Good parents don't allow people to access their children in any kind of intimate way unless they know them. For instance, when a good parent sends their kid over to Johnny's house to play, they meet their parents first. It doesn't mean by meeting the parents you can immediately tell they are child predators, but it does mean that you have enough care and concern to at least know in person who has access to your children.

If Kate did not insist on meeting everyone who would have close access to her children's nude footage, it says a lot about her. Regardless whether such a meeting would have prevented anything. She has not been protective of these children.

It's simply not the same as a child actor whose footage is exposed to a team of editors one might never meet. They are on a set and reading a script, and there shouldn't be any chance that nudity, diaper changes and other things of such nature would be available to editors. As a parent of a reality TV star on a show that allows a crew into your private HOME, you need to be much more careful. They were not.

I wonder if Cara was forced to give up lacrosse this summer for the sake of filming. To say nothing of whatever else (nothing, most likely) the other kids might have had going on. I still can't believe that TLC/Kate is allowed to take these children out of state/country whenever they want AGAINST their father's wishes. There is something just so not right about that.

jamezvader1194 said...

Admin the sad part is that Kate considers the film crew like they're still family when they aren't.TLC has shown that it doesn't care about any of these families and the damage they do to them,only the money they roll in.So im not sure why Kate acts like they're family when they don't even care about her.I don't think Kate would turn on them IF they cancel her because if she did,she'd of done that when they cancelled her back in 2011.Though i remember Kate kept begging TLC to bring her back by saying "The kids REALLY miss filming".So if they do cancel her again,i image she'd continue to non stop begging them to bring her back.Maybe she does have something we don't know about TLC and if TLC said no to her then maybe she'd bring it out publicly and thats why they keep her,i don't know.All i know is that despite the rating and viewers,TLC keeps her.

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

But if this were so, then why was he speaking out about it again just back in April, when we heard about Hannah's unhappiness--and specifically about filming as well as K8's "cruelty--and why would he have bothered even to try to take it back to court? (Of course, we don't know if that actually happened.) I think he's still very much against his kids' filming. And even if the court can't or won't do anything about it, you would think that TLC would have respect for the other parent of their little cash cows. Makes you wonder how many of them are divorced with children and trying to make it work with the other parent. They cannot be blind to what must certainly be a fair amount of unhappiness when these kids are working in front of the cameras pretending to have FUN.

I think TFW envisions years of 'Kate Plus 8 Teenagers' followed by engagement and wedding specials. She is hooked on the 'celebrity' drug she sampled years ago and that can't be replaced by anything close to what any of us consider normal.

Absolutely. I truly think the best way to describe this is an addiction. She is addicted to the fame, the money, to being on TV.

Like any addiction rationality is out the window. She can't think rationally about the best interest of her children.

Addiction really is the best word.

The film crew gathered around them on a public beach....at that age I would have been absolutely mortified by such a specticle. Ugh, just mortified. I can't imagine every single one of them finds it enjoyable to be making such a scene. It's just not normal for a young person to like that sort of attention. At that age you just want to fit in.

It's also possible she met him but doesn't remember it. This was years ago. She doesn't seem like the type of person to never forget a face. She seems rather out of it really, and wouldn't care much about some low-bit production member. It's possible they both met him but only Jon remembers it. I have to give her a pass on this one. I'll take her word for it she doesn't remember meeting him or never met him. What I can't give her a pass on is the fact that she thinks that is at all relevant. Whether you met him is not the POINT.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

And what in the heck could be interesting enough to film on the
beach? Eight kids and their mother - yawn. What passes for
entertainment in reality TV is abysmal. And those poor kids
were stranded there for as long as the director deemed necessary.

And at the beginning of summer, Kate tweeted that they were just hanging out, relaxing by the pool, with no schedule. Let's see, so far they've been filmed shopping for back to school supplies, and now on the beach in Florida. I guess all of this is schedule-free.

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

Yes. I'm giving her a pass on this one, too. We just don't know what she remembers, and I certainly wouldn't call her a liar. Not this time. Just because the two were in the same city (Raleigh) doesn't mean that they were introduced.

"Ugh, just mortified. I can't imagine every single one of them finds it enjoyable to be making such a scene. It's just not normal for a young person to like that sort of attention. At that age you just want to fit in."

Yes, but these are not normal kids. It's all they have ever known and I would think that they don't find this the least bit uncomfortable or embarrassing. This has been their life.

This is TLC. Do they even know the meaning of the word "respect?" I doubt it. It's all about the Benjamins. I don't think that there's any love lost between TLC and Jon.

Sleepless In Seattle said...

I don't think Kate would turn on them IF they cancel her because if she did,she'd of done that when they cancelled her back in 2011

I think that even Kate knew back then that you don't bite the hand that feeds you. She knew there was a possibility of specials and follow-ups, so why burn that bridge by alienating herself from TLC? She's dumb, but she's not *that* dumb.

Sleepless In Seattle said...

There's no way TLC will film this family forever. Ratings are already down from previous years, she isn't in their lineup, she's used as filler.

But it doesn't matter to her if she's filler. She's getting paid. She's getting a vacation. Her face will still be on TLC and her fans will still worship her. She's addicted, and she's getting her fix...she's still a celebrity (in her eyes). TLC is giving her that, and that's all that is important to her.

readerlady said...

Long Time L # 141 -- We know of at least one time that the kids were taken out of the country against Jon's wishes. He went to court to prevent TFMJG from taking them to Australia (on HIS visitation time, incidentally) and the judge smacked him down, saying it was for work so the kids could go.

Sleepless 151 -- Don't forget the filming of the birthday extravaganza. That was this summer, too. No schedule my Aunt Fannie! Those kids have been scheduled from here to kingdom come most of the summer.

lol! You'll have to give me lessons on that PA Dutch language some day. It sounds very colorful.



Kate does have ambitions to film forever, and it seems like she's getting her wish but what else is new? Even back in 2008 she wrote in an email to that Kirk character over at Figure 8 about it:

"Sorry, if I am going beyond being 'Kate' in the show, but I also want to secure a 'foreverness' for our family (house, college etc) that goes beyond our show so that when I look back when I am old and gray (and probably still filming- ha ha) I know without a doubt that we did the right thing."

So she's very willing to keep sacrificing her kids privacy until her old age to satisfy her greed. Incredible.

I agree. Standing up straight when your spine curves is like standing on

FlimsyFlamsy said...

AuntieAnn (#159), I'd never read that email before, and it is a real
eye opener. She'd decided way back then she was never going
back to nursing. She was a star and she was going to stay a star.
And TLC was going to give her and her family everything they
ever dreamed of on a golden platter. Her adorable (*shudder*) homemade word "foreverness" really creeps me out -- as if TLC
was obligated to have this family of 10 (at the time) at their teat
until the end of time.

Meanwhile, in the 7 years since she sent that email, what has TFW done to help make herself more marketable in the entertainment
industry? Voice lessons? Acting classes? Courses about TV production? Does she read Variety and The Hollywood Reporter
online every morning to stay on top of things in her business?
Heck, does she read any newspapers or current books or classic
books to keep up with what's relevant in society? She has all the
time in the world to do all of these things. Does she do any?

TLC stinks said...

Why keep Destin a SECRET? It makes no sense. With social media, there's just no way TLC can keep any filming under the radar.

TLC is sneaky. They'll cancel a series which should end permanently, but then work out a deal for these occasional specials. That's why I think the Duggars are not DOA with TLC.

And when you have someone like Kate, she'll jump on any offer to film. I guess a viewership of one million must be ok because she's out there still filming. So technically, in my mind, they only cancelled the weekly shows.

So we think that when those kids turn 18 it will finally be over. It won't. Kate has every intention of filming their entire lives if TLC hangs in there. The KEY is ratings. That is the ONLY thing that matters. Ratings draw the sponsors in who make money for TLC. If you are waiting for a scandal involving her, good luck. All the negative publicity that's been out there has not made a dent. Short of committing murder, I think she is here to stay. Those kids' futures were signed, sealed and delivered the day they were conceived.

No, she hasn't and she won't because she found out that being duplicitous works great for her. It's given her everything she's ever wanted. The only remarkable thing about Kate Gosselin is that she's gotten away with defrauding people as long as she has because she's not even a good liar.

If you want to know what a model kid Jacob is, hop over to Keeping Up With the Roloff Family blog. He has am ask.com acct with over 3000 q and a's about drug use, he loves his pot, the fakeness of filming, his anti-Christian stand (you'll like that Redbird) and more. Jacob is no saint. And I think Amy and Matt are no different than Jon and Kate. There show is just as scripted as any other TLC show. The kids are pretentious. Amy is just as much to blame as Matt. To call Matt a narcissist and not Amy is simply hypocritical. Amy benefited just as much as Matt. I think they both have a huge air of self importance and they ARE fliming their divorce for $$$. The clip of her telling her sons they were finally divorcing was heart wrenching. How much did she make off that clip???

I have wondered why the Roloff family wasn't held to the same morality clause as Jon. Matt has had 2 DUI's, sued a public inspector, Jacob has been open about his drug use since age 16 on twitter and posts pictures of himself high and in bed with his girlfriend. Jeramy and Zach have been caught making racial slurs about non white people and so much hate against homosexuals.

I think jer and auj (so pretentious) are fame whores. And they are SOOOO boring.

Yet TLC never shut Jacob down, and Amy and Matt checked out with him as soon as the twins moved out.

Sorry, I haven't been able to find anything either. It's possible Jon said something on his twitter account about where he met BB, but of course, there is no way of checking that now.

BTW, these are the tweets that Kate made about the BB issue:

This one was after one of her tweeties let her know about the BB story:

Kate Gosselin ‏@Kateplusmy8 28 Oct 2011
RT @TrippenIn @Kateplusmy8 Bill Blankenship http://www.newsobserver.com/2011/10/28/1600197/child-porn-effort-snares-25.html … NEVER HEARD OF HIM!

Then after ROL published their article with Jon's statement, she tweeted these. Here's a link to that article:

http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2011/11/jon-gosselin-jon-kate-plus-8-editor-arrested-sexual-exploit-minor/

Of course, the first tweet is a dig at Jon for speaking to Star Magazine. Notice how she covers herself though, by saying how she's dealing with it "properly".

Kate Gosselin ‏@Kateplusmy8 2 Nov 2011

1:15 PM - 2 Nov 2011

So she made a dig at Jon for speaking out, but then she "speaks out" on twitter. She was probably pissed that Jon got the first word in, and nobody picked up on "never met him" comment.

fidosmommy said...

I also thought Matt was kidding about his face on the labels. I think it's typical Matt, trying to get a reaction out of Amy. Amy is rarely amused by Matt's jocularity. (Thanks Father Mulcahey, M*A*S*H, for adding that word to my vocabulary!)

No, your recollection is correct, the fan was exaggerating. However, she was trying to point out that Kate completely ignored Paige's birthday, but found time to retweet another fan's plea for Kate to give her a retweet for her 13th birthday. Kate retweeted the tweet the day that she was travelling to Florida at 5:28pm.

I don't recall people saying Jake was a model kid. I think it's pretty well known he's a troubled young man who speaks his mind and doesn't often say the politically correct thing. It occurs to me that a lot of his behavior over the past two years could have been exasperated by his exposure on TV and dealing with that lifestyle. I tend to think what he's been through being on TV all this time is directly related to how he's turned out. All the more reason kids shouldn't be on TV.

Sorry, I haven't been able to find anything either. It's possible Jon said something on his twitter account about where he met BB, but of course, there is no way of checking that now.

I was beginning to think this thing about the wedding was something he posted on twitter.

I wonder if we commented about it here on the blog.....though lord knows where those comments would be.

I wonder if she has enough facts now. Read the blacked out portion of the post prior to this one, Kate Gosselin.

Do tabloids typically pay celebs to offer a simple statement in regards to a current event, Kate? (Answer: NO.)

Fidos, 186...I also thought Matt was kidding about his face on the labels. I think it's typical Matt, trying to get a reaction out of Amy. Amy is rarely amused by Matt's jocularity. (Thanks Father Mulcahey, M*A*S*H, for adding that word to my vocabulary!)

I agree. I thought the same thing. Matt's sense of humor has always been so low-key and he can say something he thinks is funny without even cracking a smile. I took it as snark, just to get a reaction from Amy.

Why keep Destin a SECRET? It makes no sense. With social media, there's just no way TLC can keep any filming under the radar.

Kate's contract with TLC possibly forbids her to discuss ANYTHING to do with upcoming episodes unless she is directed to do so.

Exactly. This makes total sense. I don't think that Kate is allowed to spill the beans until she gets the okay from TLC. It's not that it's a big secret, but rather that TLC will announce these specials when they're good and ready to do so.

What say you? What? Put down the margaritas and get to work! That's what we pay you for! LOL!

If Kate is not allowed to discuss anything, then why was Jacob allowed to post about his crossover with Jack's show? Obviously you don't reveal every detail but it shouldn't be a problem to post photos and small tweets as many other reality stars do about their shows.

Not buying it. She doesn't discuss it because she's getting her narcissistic supply and doesn't care to include the fans in anything. Nothing more nothing less.

Amazing about that dig towards Jon about the tabloid report regarding him upset about Blankinship. I assume a tabloid contacted him for a comment and he gave it. I doubt he was paid anything. She just cannot let it go. What a witch. You can't tell me she does not bad mouth Jon in front of the kids. Once you cross her, she holds a grudge with an iron fist.

I took it as he meant that Amy would love to throw things at his face.

In any case, it seemed like a lame thing to say. Needy humor.

She's obsessed wit Jon. Some sick-o might very well have seen footage of her kids naked and all she can think about is Jon. Who said NOTHING wrong about this. She's obsessed with the conspiracy theory that Jon is somehow making money in anything he says.

How much money does one make to simply say they're horrified. Man he's got quite the ring going on here! (eye roll)

Matt's the kind of father who would probably embarrass me at that age, but his kids seem to adore him.
