Discussion thread: Kate Plus 8 'Florida Fun'

Kate Plus 8

Florida Fun6:00 PM on TLC, 1 hr 3 min 2015 TV-PG
The gang is still in Florida, where some of the kids go deep-sea fishing, but their adventure is cut short by seasickness. Later, Mady and Cara look up recipes to cook the family dinner; and the kids have fun on their first trip to a water park.

Yawn. Deja vu, all over again.

Vanessa said...

Seriously, this is proof positive this "MOTHER" is not like the rest of us. Who does this? Who? Who would take these kids out deep sea fishing after the last time? An evil entity that does not have the DNA of a human being. She is EVIL. The spawn of Satan. There are truly evil entities in this world. You cannot explain it away with being a victim herself, or she really suffers from low self esteem, she's this, she's that. There is no excuse. Call a spade a spade. She is what she is. She hasn't made an effort to change or see her evil ways, she enjoys this PLUS the perk of MONEY!!

@joannetalebian1 @Kateplusmy8 I agree that disrespect is not good...but when I watched it...I wasn't sure who she was directing that to?


&&&&


Milo? What the F does it matter WHO Mady was calling stupid. "You're stupid" whether to Kate, the other children, the instructors, or the pope himself, was rude and inappropriate. As far as her excuse the game was high stress, so was Exit Game that I played and sometimes we got stuck and sometimes someone tried an idea that didn't work. But no one ever put the other person down. Lots of people face high stress situations without becoming nasty, I have no idea why Kate isn't one of them and I can only suggest lots of therpy.

Tucker's Mom said...

You mean Kate turned the boat around when the kids started to hurl? How kind.

I couldn't agree more, Admin. The point is that it doesn't matter WHO Mady was directing it to, it is something you don't do!! Very disrespectful, rude and chilling, because it sounds like she is talking just like her mother does in private.

OMFG! She's the same as skhate/kart/khate/bitch. She can use her word salads along with the best of the narcissists. It's a never ending cycle of mumbo jumbo. She's just as frustrating, she's just as much of a spinner. Ack! She loses people at the same rate as tfw. Different ends of the spectrum but the same ammo.

Redbird (#5), and if M was indeed stressed and frustrated, then that could have been a "teachable moment" for her mother. TFW could've acknowledged that M was uptight, but that they all had to work together to get out, and that they should remember to be kind to each other in the process. But TFW
is not that kind of parent, is she?

I believe the discussion about heritage and her fake attempt at the korean bbq was to address the "rumors" of her being a racist. The pic of her with the slanty eyes? Mr. Chocolate? THAT'S more of an image issue than beating your kids.

jamezvader1194 said...

Well it seems the twitter wars are on.Kate's trying to convince to someone she did bake all those cinnamon buns and now some fans are going after haters and vice versa.

Kate is a twit said...

Kate seems to think that one of the "haters" is Robert. The "hater" was being nasty to one of Kate's fans, so Kate tweeted to her:

That's right. Another opportunity blown. It's fine to feel stress during that activity but there are much healthier ways to deal with it. Mady is still a child who needs guidance on how to deal with such things. She is obviously not getting it from Kate.

Vanessa said...

"Contrary to popular belief,my kids' heritage IS imprtant to me"
Damage control? Why did Alexis ask at that particular moment to ask"what are we?" Yeah- not scripted at all.

I think both comments were nasty and uncalled for.

Which brings me to another point in that is that Kate esculates Mady and contributes to her stress instead of helping to bring her back down. That's inexcusable. Had Kate not said who died and left you in charge, Mady may never have barked, you're stupid.

Kate is a twit said...

US Weekly has a clip of tonight's show. It shows Aaden getting sick when they were on the boat.

http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/kate-gosselins-son-aaden-gets-seasick-on-kate-plus-8-watch-w159764

Kate tells the kids that if they don't think about it they won't get sick. She says "it's mostly mind over matter, honestly".

Then she says how she came prepared. She brought vomit bags, ginger ale, extra shirts and beach towels. WTF?

Why didn't she give them Dramamine or something similar?

She's really despicable thinking that the kids can just will away seasickness. It that what she's tell them when they're sick at other times, too?

That really is vile. It's not scientific either, you can't just will seasickness away. Geez. There is an element of when you see or hear one person vomit you then vomit, but that's not a "mind" thing, that's evolution. We are programmed that if one person in the tribe is vomiting, you all probably ate the same mammoth, so it was probably bad and you should all vomit. Any doctor will tell you this.

Even if it WAS mind over matter, what is the harm in giving them preventative medicine just in case? NONE.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Well, what with TFW willing herself out of post-partum depression, I guess she's an expert on mind over matter. She's a horrible excuse for a mother.

Oh, and I'm sure it was someone behind the scenes who told/reminded TFW to bring those supplies.
If Mama wants to fish, Mama's gonna fish -- her kids' needs always come second, if not third, or last.

jamezvader1194 said...

@Admin I can't see anyone defending Kate(except for her 5 fans)over this.I hope the "normal"fans see this and actually stop watching.I don't know how anyone can defend this?I hope the views will be lower then last.From the looks at her TL she did lose some fans over Mady's attitude last episode so we'll see.

Tucker's Mom said...

Just saw the clip.
There isn't enough damage control in the world to make that right.
She's an idiot for believing that you can will away motion sickness. The horizon helps, but it's cause is neurologically complex, which is why medication helps to mitigate.
Knowing the kids have repeatedly become motion sick, it's irresponsible to not provide medication prior to boarding.
Having a clean shirt is helpful, but prevention is key and the fact that Kate sat there as their mother and caretaker, telling them basically it's THEIR OWN FAULT if they get sick, is well, SICK.

The fact that these pre-teens are still being filmed and shown on television vomiting is abusive.
There's not way to make her allowing that to be shown anything less than abusive.
I don't care if the boys can laugh about it.

TLC probably told Kate to ramp up the drama the way she did with Jon. History will repeat itself. I can see it now -- Mady will pack up and move out on her and then Kate will prey on her next victim. As long as TLC keeps filming Kate will be all in for it.

Kate is a twit said...

Couple of comments from the US Weekly article;

"Kate is such a female dog. This isn't the first time she's dragged those poor kids out on a boat and they've gotten sick. It's not 'mind over matter'. It has to do with equilibrium. Buy them Sea-Bands or give them dramamine. Better yet, stop setting up situations you know will humiliate them just so you can have a 'talking point' on your stupid and undeserved show."

"Coming from a person who gets sea sick, it is not mind over matter, especially when you are that young. She lacks the empathy/sympathy gene. Ugh."

I wonder how her fans are going to react. They'll probably praise Kate because she came "prepared".

FlimsyFlamsy said...

When TFW was writhing in pain from sun poisoning on their Florida vacation, Jon should've told her it was mind over matter, and that she should have blocked out the sun with her mind.

Man, she's getting on my last nerve today. Thank goodness I don't watch the show. All the ginger ale and saltines in the world wouldn't help.

Jamesvader1194 said...

@Kiat i saw that and not many comments but all of them are negative and see right though her.I guess not many care about her return.Thankfully

fidosmommy said...

Sorry, I just can't bring myself to watch a clip of a child being sick aboard a boat. How any adult deemed that TV "special"-worthy is a mystery to me. TLC must truly be desperate for material. They KNEW those kids got sick on the ocean and chose to go that direction AGAIN. In this season of joy and peace, viewers got to see misery and disharmony. What a gift.

Jane (#36), I think TFW is trying desperately to sound philosophical and deep with that comment about being happy and peaceful on a boat. But she's about as deep as a puddle.

Yeah, it sure is happy and peaceful on a boat with a camera filming you, and a paycheck at the end. Oh, and your kids are hurling, but that's for their crew daddies to deal with...

prairiemary said...

Every time tfw fixes something, like her 'umming when talking, I believe it is due to what she reads us say on this blog. We give her ideas how to improve herself, so she does. Maybe we should stop doing that?

She is one sick dog. If I were Kate, I would block her or tell her in no uncertain terms to knock it off. It's not even funny anymore. Too bad if Milo's feelings would be hurt and she would go off on one of her pouting absences. Enough is enough.

Being seasick is absolutely the worst thing ever. It's like you want to die and are angry because you don't. If you've never been seasick on a ship or boat you have no idea how horrible it is. Ginger. Kate! Ginger!

You just know that she wanted them to get sick. What kind of a sadist does that to her children?

You couldn't pay me enough to watch that show! That woman is sadistic.

But I guess they needed someone to suffer to create drama, and it wasn't going to be her. She threw those kids to the dogs.

In the US video it does look like they're wearing SeaBands but really...if you know your kids are prone to being seasick, why go out to sea? Oh right, SHE likes the boat and vomiting makes for a good show.

Now she says she gave the kids dramamine. Now that she saw the immediate reaction to the clip of her kid violently puking on a boat (again), now she says she gave them dramamine.

Exactly.

She knows. She's on notice.

To know full well your kids are going to be uncomfortable to the point of vomiting and not provide them all the relief they need including meds or not making them go in the first place, is simply unforgivable and definitely sadistic. There is something very wrong with her.

And again, are the kids going along because they WANT to tough out the vomiting or because they fear making her upset if they say they don't wanna go?

Tucker's Mom said...

Kate carefully spelled out what she took; towels, shirts, ginger ale. No mention of dramamine during her couch interview (with as many takes to get it right as it took) or on the boat.
Nope, just mind over matter, not wait for the medicine to kick in (which anyone knows should be given beforehand) and it'll start to get better.
Just revisionist history for damage control.

Gaslighting.

That medicine should work. I don't believe it failed so miserably for all those kids.

She's flat out lying.

She's sadistic AND a liar. Not that this is news, but nothing about her mental illness has gotten better.

Tucker's Mom said...

Also, from the clip, I saw Kate sitting there telling the kids to will away their nausea instead of getting up and giving them the ginger ale she says she brought along.
So much of this is preventative. We all stayed hydrated on our deep sea adventures. Everyone. At all times. Tons of water and yes, beer for some hearty souls ;-)
The kids all had plentiful water, ginger ale and food.

Just because I know Kate will read this, get Gin Gins the next time and give the kids dramamine an hour before they board.
FFS.
Yes, they might get drowsy and yes, that might make lousy tv, but at least they might just get through the sea adventures without hurling.

TJ said...

Pretty sure it's Steve on the boat at 1:32 on the posted video on this website. when Kate goes to the cabin of the boat with the boy who got sick. You can just see him briefly try to hand something over to her..he has brown short and a blue t shirt and cap on..

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

If you could just will away vomiting, no one would suffer from morning sickness.

I would like to see Duchess Kate will away her vomiting so severe she was hospitalized.

Like so many have said there's so many things going on in the brain when it comes to vomiting (it's in your brain Kate, not your stomach), it's very unlikely you can will any of it away other than very minor, minor tummy aches. I mean you don't sit there and picture yourself hurling, that probably doesn't help, but to expect 11 year olds to have that kind of control is so unfair.

And she made no mention of Dramamine in her couch interview.

Let me guess. After the boat trip, the kids had to go back and pretend to enjoy the meal Mady and Cara had prepared for them? Smile for the cameras? How well does that go over after a vomit fest?

-----------------------------
As one who suffers from motion sickness, I absolutely agree. I was violently car-sick as a child, but have mostly avoided it in adulthood. Sitting in the front seat is good, driving is even better. And never, ever try to read in a moving car; even be careful about reading a map or directions.

My daughter is also prone to motion sickness, so we both get the front seat on winding roads. She has a X-terra, with "stadium seating" (back seats higher than front), and it's amazing how much of a difference being able to see out the front windshield makes.

Both of us have been sick as dogs on two-hour ferry rides, but fortunately not at the same time. Once, one of us was sick before she could even get out of the car and before the ferry left the dock; the car's springs exaggerated the motion of the ferry.

It is definitely not something that can be prevented by wishing it away.

Tucker's Mom said...

I don't care if the kids chose deep sea fishing. What the hell? Give them the meds they need so they don't get sick.
Kids ages 2-12 are most prone to motion sickness.
If I'm correct, they went from a stinking hot and humid as hell beach and sun to deep sea fishing?
Oy.

There is something really, really weird about the way she gets her jollies by watching her children suffer.

The more miserable they are, the more excited she is. She loves seeing them in pain, whether it's physical or emotional. She comes alive when she can make them hurt.

And she never wastes an opportunity to hurt one, some, or all of them.

I don't get it.

There must be a name for this disorder.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Prairie Mom, this is a totally crazy small world thing, but I dated the son of the screen writer of the Dolly movie.

He is now a dear friend. In fact, we played Exit Game together. His idea--he always has great ideas like that. A major topic of conversation was the DP movie and what a great gig it was to score. I am just thrilled for them that the movie did so well. That's the first time I heard that. So wonderful.

He was the one telling me during the game good job, you're doing great, keep it up! He never said who died and put you in charge, or shut up.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Sorry meant Prairie MARY not mom.

Sad but true said...

I guess maybe Kate (and/or TLC?) is no longer buying Twitter followers. Looks like she only gained around 50 from 8 p.m., an hour prior to her show, to right now (midnight EST). Unless Twitter is broken, I don't think that bodes well for ratings. Tweets were down by about 35-40% from last week, too.

Anchors aweigh, Katie, you just might be on your final voyage. Or so we hope.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

The 11 year olds might not be old enough to make a good decision about getting on a boat that's going to make them vomit.

Kids that age don't always have foresight or make healthy choices for themselves. It's much easier for a kid not to remember how bad their vomiting was last time they got on the boat. Or to just not think about the consequences. Kids that age are too in the moment. Kate, they have an 11 year old's brain, not a 27 year old's. It's not the same brain.

This is another decision that should not have been in their hands to make. They're just not old enough yet. An adult decides to tough out some vomiting and go to work. Not a child.

I have a question for Kate. Does SHE decide whether a sick child will go to school even if he wants to tough it out? Because she should be the one making that decision. She needs therapy and a parenting class.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

One last time, because it can't be asked enough, are the kids going along because they WANT to tough out the vomiting or because they fear making her upset if they say they don't wanna go?

I think these kids take on her burdens and are parentified, and I think many of them feel an unhealthy obligation to not upset her, to please her, to appease her. Any decisions they make are biased in favor of pacifying Kate. That's not a level playing field. I don't care how much a kid wants to go on a ship and vomit, if he's doing it for Kate, that was not a good decision.

We may have to wait for some of the G8's tell-all books to come out to find out whether or not it was their choice to film certain things or if they were threatened into it.

Kate has lied and lied again and even when she's caught in a lie, she'll lie to cover that lie. It's a bone deep disease with her. I don't believe a word that falls out her mouth.

If the movie is half as entertaining as Carrie Fisher s interviews accompanied by her dog Gary, it's going to be great! Carrie says it's a great movie and I trust her judgement! Cannot wait!
True confessions, in 1977 I was in college, saw Star Wars with friends and was mesmerized. It was like nothing I had ever seen before! I kept finding more friends to go with me to more showings. It was the first time I ever went to a movie alone, when I ran out of people to go with. I saw it seven times in the first three months. I still think the first one is the best one, and can passionately argue with those who favor Empire Strikes Back.
Reality tv does not have the capacity to make imaginations take flight and embrace all the fantastic possibilities life holds and all the optimism of the belief in a wonderful future.
Squee! Star Wars, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, New characters! Cute robots! Big explosions!
All I need now is a DVD of Mad Max Fury Road for Christmas, and life will be compete! Charlise Theron should get an Oscar nomination for her role as Furiosa.

Prairie Mary, the Dolly Parton movie was very well made and well acted. The young actress who portrayed young Dolly is so talented! I enjoyed it very much! I did need a whole box of tissues to get thru it!

chefsummer #Leh said...

I have a question for Kate. Does SHE decide whether a sick child will go to school even if she wants to tough it out?
______

I hope the kids let her deiced what kind of old folks home she'll go to.

Or the kids will let her deiced if she was to tough it out all alone in her mcmansion with-not-a-body guard.

chefsummer #Leh said...

Has much as Kate complains and whines when she doesn't want to do something. She should be the last person to tell someone to just grin and bare it.

@Kateplusmy8 Another enjoyable episode of Kate Plus 8. G8 kids!

Fans enjoy seeing kids getting seasick and vomiting? I guess whatever floats their boat (pun intended). Does a bad case of Montezuma's Revenge also amuse them?

They really are a strange flock, aren't they?

She forgot to add the Food Network on these tweets. She must be losing her touch because you know she wants the twins on one of the kid challenge shows.

Vanessa said...

One last time, because it can't be asked enough, are the kids going along because they WANT to tough out the vomiting or because they fear making her upset if they say they don't wanna go?
***********************
I think we all know the answer to that. And hopefully one day, one or more of he G8 will figure this out...sitting in some therapist's office.

I suggest that TLC set it up that sKate Gosselin be pushed off a building like at SkyZone, many, many times until she "conquers" her fear of heights.

Let's see her "mind over matter" that one. Then I'll watch.

She's sadistic and evil.

TLC stinks said...

Those kids do not want to anger mommy. It's as simple as that. There was no choice about deep sea fishing...it was go or make mommy mad, and we know what that is like, right?

Of course, Steve was there, blue shirt as always. Was she rockin' her bikini in front of him on this trip? You bet. Interesting that TLC is hiding him. Must be their attempt to make people forget there is already a man in her life, therefore the blind date scenario because the kids want her to date and she's soooooo lonely. Bleh.

Great recap

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Another cool thing about Dolly Parton is that she started a non-profit 20 years ago called Imagination Library, which supplies kids in Tennessee with a new free book every month. It grew to an international program, and has now supplied more than 60 million books to kids who might not otherwise have them!

Dolly knows the importance of books, and fostering the love of reading in children, no matter what their family's income level is.

reader said...

I think about how she chastised Jon for breathing too loudly, the punishments for climbing out of cribs. Gauging by her history of appropriate punishments (a very long list) what would be the punishment for an adult taking children out on a boat in rocky water with cameras for the world to witness - knowing they would vomit? And yes it is a very miserable experience. Willful premeditated abuse of her role as guardian.

Didn't Kate say that she was too busy to suffer from PPD, and that if you just didn't think about it, it would not happen?

I was thinking the same thing. Yes, she did. She was lucky enough not to have it, and concluded it was all her doing.

Tucker's Mom said...

Yawn.
Here's Kate. Here's Kate's eight kids who don't want to be here. Here's the fake situation to build the episode around.
See Kate yell. See the kids roll their eyes and upchuck.
See Kate make money off the discomfort of her kids.
Bad Kate. Run, kids, run.

^^
Comment from the Us recap. Too funny. So true.

goodwill gal said...

what was the whole " I hate to swim in dirty filtered water " blathering about ? they have a pool in their backyard which I am sure is about as dirty as water park water. I have been to many water parks in diff. states and they are family fun and clean. Then she has the older girls mimicking her thoughts...sheesh...and the lazy river is shallow..she could have stepped out easily and made it to shore.

Terri said...

Kate lies with such ease it's mind boggling. She tweeted that when the kids were getting sick on the boat and she was in the middle of reeling in a fish and didn't stop to care for the kids it was because "the fisherman wouldn't take the rod" and "she felt so bad". That is an outright lie. I live in Florida and my hubby and I have been on many deep sea fishing trips. The deckhands on the boat are more than happy to take over for you if you ask. I can't believe how she lies about things that are so easily proven to be false.

reader said...

From a "nurse" who had 3 coffee makers by her bed, multiple temper tantrums...sorry the adult phrase, melt downs; and no contact with anyone from extended family, her advice To her children prone to seasickness is "get over it."

FlimsyFlamsy said...

It sounds like last night's show was just the
G family doing water activities. That's not a
slice-of-life peek into the world of raising twins and sextuplets -- it's a freaking travelogue.
And, yes, she blamed the seasick 11-year-olds for making poor choices that she, a nurse, should have made for them.

Didn't TFW claim years ago that she wasn't "waterish?" And yet now she claims to spend her entire summer submerged in her family pool, and says she loves deep sea fishing more than life itself.

Winsomeone said...

I was so hoping the man holding the fish would bump it into Kate..bet the fisherwoman would have screamed her butt off. So her idea of fishing is reeling the fish in after someone else actually catches it and wears it out a bit?

TLC stinks said...

http://radaronline.com/celebrity-news/kate-plus-8-season-4-episode-2-recap/

Next, the Gosselin children venture out to sea on a fishing trip. Mady, Mystery Marley, Cara and Hannah (with a foresight well beyond her age) stay back to cook dinner for the rest of the family. Interestingly, Cara provides some accurate foreshadowing, explaining that she doesn’t want to go because “I know they’re all going to throw up.”

There's also a clip on Radar.

Admin (#111), at least she didn't say it was Jon's fault she got sick.

Why didn't the kids tell her it was mind over matter, and to look at the horizon, and sleep it off? My guess is, she had zero interest in that sand castle activity, and that's why she didn't
participate.

My thing is if their sickness is that bad why not leave them on shore with a sitter?-(she went fishing w/o them be for)

If it were me I'd just go alone and not punish my kids. I guess making money and shooting a show is more important then her kids comfortability.

redbird said...

Thank you FlimsyFlamsy for posting about the book program.

This is a wonderful program that Dolly Parton started. Over 840K kids are enrolled and so are my grandbabies. The kids get 1 book a month from birth till they start school. About 75 books. They are very nice books. I wanted to get my dgs the book Goodnight Moon, but Dolly beat me to it! lol

Did you see her when she finally laid back in the chair after catching the fish? Looked like she just laid back from TFM's lap after a wild ride.

Or ate a big plate of Risotto. (Seinfeld Snark)

No wonder she likes to go "fishing".

Tucker's Mom said...

The kids wore Sea Bands, but I think that's like trying to push back the ocean when you know damn well that your kids get severe motion sickness.
The kids' level of motion sickness is as bad as it gets. Not a little nausea. They need medicine PREVENTATIVELY in order to avoid getting so ill that they vomit over and over again, and then get so wiped that they pass out for awhile.
I really think Kate doesn't want the kids to be drowsy and sleeping during filming.
To wit- literally smacking a couple kids awake because they had the audacity to sneak to the back of the bus to pass out after an entire day of filming in triple digit heat.

Thanks all for linking the recaps. I don't know why this show is still on. Everyone has Kate's number and realizes the show is staged, the kids are spoiled, and it's basically The Kate Show.

But, sure, they're lucky to get one measly vacation a year. Poor bebbies.

Did last night's episode have the clip of the one girl saying it should be Kate Plus Kate? A fan was arguing with a nonfan on Twitter yesterday..the fan saying that the girl meant Kate DOES everything for the kids (a positive statement) and the nonfan saying it meant Kate makes it all about her and takes over everything. This was based on the preview clip. I am wondering if that was clarified last night.

chefsummer #Leh said...

I'm so glad that I didn't watch the show last night or last week ugh.

And what parent tells their child you're wasting my time?. That is so mean to say to your chil.

TLC stinks said...

Well, that's good although were they wearing a pair? Because you have to wear on both wrists to be effective.If she did give them Dramamine and they were wearing their Sea Bands properly, then something else is going on to make these kids so nauseous. Knowing that despite precautions they get sick, she still should not have taken them in the boat. The kids looked miserable in that clip.

TLC stinks said...

If over-the-counter remedies do not work, you get a PRESCRIPTION. What kind of a freakin' nurse were you??? She's either dumber than a box of rocks or coldly calculating and I vote for the latter.

I'm sure you're right I didn't watch, but it seems she has alienated travel guides across the globe. Would be interested in hearing the guide's side of the story. Not necessary of course because as Tuckers Mom stated, everyone's got Kate's number.

Aaaand the bus just backed up over Aunt Jodi




EXCEPT they were in the winter of their 3rd year. Somewhat of a difference. No doubt she blasted those kids for something that was not their fault. I wouldn't have given 6 3 year olds gum in my house unless they all sat around the table and chewed it.

Point is, they were not 2. Kate's history.

Janice in Mo said...

If I'm correct, they went from a stinking hot and humid as hell beach and sun to deep sea fishing?

Not correct. They clearly left from the beach house. If you are thinking they left from the sand castle making event, that isn't accurate. She had them all gathered in the kitchen.

Can you imagine at 15 years old being filmed on the beach, adult men, with your domineering mother..and your 6 younger siblings..and on a production schedule.

Yes, they were wearing a pair. You can see them on the US Mag clip.

Unless she woke the kids up after the show last night, or kept her home from school today, this is just another blatant untruth:

Kate Gosselin ‏@Kateplusmy8 55m55 minutes ago
After last nights #KatePlus8 on @TLC with 🐊‘Aldergators’🐊 I cried watching this precious memory with Alexis (3 X’s) http://youtu.be/LoDIOOmS7nY

The lies just fall so trippingly from her tongue, she really is pathological.

Interestingly, she seemed to indicate last week that the whole family sat down to watch "R show," but this week Hanny kissed her good-night (per her Twitter) well before the show came on? I would take nothing she says anymore as true. Not even---no, ESPECIALLY even---if it's on film.

Well, Cara is mentally three years Kate's senior, so she reasons with more maturity. There was probably a lot of whining and complaining from TFW until five of the sextuplets caved and got on the boat with her.

Now if only Cara could parentify her mother...

Vanessa in a wsy I hope you're right, the teens knowing this routine to be normal. On the other hand I hope not. Still I would think as they grow and witness behavios exhibited by other families...at 15 I began seeing myself more as an individual and less as a unit of the family. At the same time I was very self conscious about my appearance.
I just can't stand watching her.

She'll probably blame it on the debates last night, but here in the East coast the debates aired from 6:30-8, and then a repeat later. At least, that's what I recall from my listings--I wasn't home to watch.

But, of course, as Milo said, Kate is BACK!

Admin, some of us on the last thread were predicting that the numbers would fall into the 600 (thousands) this season. When (not if) that happens, I think it's a good time for a party!

Did anyone else see the clip of the mini golfing w/ the older girls? They showed and shot video up the girls short shorts. Do you realize that means even if it wasn't all shown in the clip, someone edited and got a full view of whatever. That is criminal for a mother to allow the abuse of her girls that way. What about the friend's parents. I would be an end to that friendship pronto.

Admin - do you have a way to notify Jon of this important information? As a parent, it is up to him to protect the girls, if she is not and she is creating these situations.

Do the numbers include those who DVR the program? Sorry if that's a stupid question.

I didn't watch the episode or any clips, but from reading comments here and on various sites, it sounds like she is getting more psychotic/pathological as time goes by. This woman needs more than a few parenting classes. No mother with an ounce of maternal instinct throws her kids out there, knowing that they are prone to seasickness. Dramamine doesn't always work, and I've found those bands not to be effective.

Motion/seasickness is many times worse than labor in childbirth! I've experienced both, and Kate has absolutely no clue how horrible it is to be sick on a boat. Something is seriously wrong with her, and I just wish that somebody could take the bull by the horns and demand that she get a psych evaluation and help with whatever is going on with the misfiring in her brain. I hope it's not too late.

The re-run of the Duggar show, which DID air at the same time as the debates, scored 901,000. And K+8 was #29 of the top 50 cable shows. Not even in the top half. The Duggars re-run was #19. Still waiting to see how Milo spins this.

They brought the show back after the ratings dropped in 2011. What were the ratings for the episode immediately before the cancellation?

I saw that; the shot on the stairs, and the shot from the golf cup. Creepy

She tweeted that when the kids were getting sick on the boat and she was in the middle of reeling in a fish and didn't stop to care for the kids it was because "the fisherman wouldn't take the rod" and "she felt so bad". That is an outright lie.
**********************
she didn't do anything because SHE.DOES.NOT.CARE.
No truer words ever spoken than "I don't see other people"
She sees NOBODY, least of all her kids. They appear magically when she needs her narc fix. She was in her glory with that rod in her hand and the camera on her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Absolutely! Steve was feeding her the risotto while she was reeling it in.

-----------------------
I didn't think it was that bad. There were no views of "whatever", including no underwear, and I don't see how there could have been, unless the girls took their shorts off. The shorts were so snug that it would be almost impossible to take video "up" them.

I checked back in the archives for the ratings of all the season 1-2 (2010-2011), and there were only 4 episodes out of 25+ that scored below 1M. There was one with 874,000, one with 681,000, one with 938,000, and with 907,000. All the others were between 1M and 3.4M. It looked like it averaged around 1.3 to 1.4M.

Of course, times have changed at TLC. They used to have several shows that pulled in 2M+ per episode, so K+8's numbers were low compared to the rest. Now, of course, they have very few shows that pull in that kind of audience. They probably figured that they would keep K+8 if it could maintain 1M, which it did up until now. This season, however, I bet there will not be a single episode that brings in over 1M. And this is a very expensive show for them to produce. You don't see the other TLC families getting so many expensive trips and home improvements. Low ratings and high production costs will sink any show.

What I don't understand is, why--when the ratings were dropping steadily and just barely above 1M, did TLC decide to shoot 8 more episodes? What moron decided that was a good idea?

---------------------
Yes, from ground level, or from the mini-golf hole. They didn't straddle it, and no crotches or underwear was shown. I was just watching figure skating, and the figure skating videos are much more "racy" and "revealing" than the video was. And yes, figure skating does involve 15 year old girls, and some teens who look much younger than their actual age. I think the TLC people were trying to be clever, not prurient.

where did you get this t shirt and who makes it? thanks ☺️

LOL This woman has been tweeting for MONTHS about this doggone shirt. For the love of all that's holy, Kate, tell her where you got it, how much you paid for it, and if it's available in her size! Perhaps Milo could find out for her. She is obsessed with this shirt. These people are nuts.

WOW! The ratings were down approx. 250,000. That is fantastic. I only hope it was not because of the debates. But I think the ratings were down because the show is not interesting and also the people who were reminded of her show before the first new episode (because of her TV interviews) forgot about her show this week. Of course, that statement does not include her fans who will always watch. Also the loyal TLC fans watched her just because that is the channel they like. And of course she always draws a crowd from her detractors who do not like her and tune in to see what a bitch she is. But as her downward ratings decline all those that tuned in yesterday are probably not enough to sustain a series of Kate Plus Eight.

I watched on demand. A few observations. First, it was nice to see Collin smile! And he and Hannah were partners in the sandcastle event and got along well. Sadly Leah and Joel had a fight.And H punched another boy. Mady was negative for most parts, but enjoyed making dinner, it seemed. She said she is good at making frozen food like pizza pockets, hmm. There was one odd couch scene where she had on a lot of makeup??

Kate made the kids go deep sea fishing because she enjoys it but only now has begrudgingly taken the kids to a water park since she dislikes them. (didn't they go to a kiddie one in J+K once ?) Anyhow, Kate took credit for that chocolate pudding painting they did back in OBX days and I think originally she said it was someone else's idea. Kate 'showered and changed" the younger kids. And said again life would be a beach if they lived on one. Overall quite boring and repetitive.

Amanda said that one of the girls kicked one of the boys (I did not watch) and acted like it was nothing. I think most if not all of those kids have behavior problems. And I think the root of it comes from the fact from age 18 months through their formative years (to year 5) it is a FACT that Kate was not home a lot at all or if she was she was home she was a FILMING a freaking tv show. And of course on weekends during their formative years she was on weekends going to churches to pad her wallet instead of spending time with her 8 very small kids. How could she or even Jon possibly discipline her kids during that time? That is when the kids learn the ground rules. Also the kids take after their mother who freaks out over anything and everything. They learned it from her. Then from age 5 comes the separation, divorce, DWTS, the paps, Kate admittedly being gone 50% of the time and more and more filming. What a mess. Than after the divorce we have the kids visiting Jon who had a totally different way of disciplining the kids and this happened with zero communication between the parents. Divorced parents need to communicate with each other. That is why all of these kids do not act properly. And by proper I am saying that Kate continually refers to them fighting with each other over the stupidest stuff. And we see it with our own eyes on our screens. That is not normal at all. Dang, Kate was thrilled that they had the same van in episode one so the kids knew where to sit and therefore they did not fight. WHAT? Eleven and fourteen years old siblings have to fight over who sits where in a van. That is crazy.

Also add in the fact that all of the kids are spoiled. PERIOD. They have been raised by TLC funding their lifestyle. Kate should have told the kids nicely that they did not need those headrests in the luggage store. But of course TLC was footing the bill so what does she care.

Well, I'm no pearl-clutching prude but what was the purpose of that camera angle at 0:44? I wonder who came up with that idea.

Midnight Madness said...

Thanks, but nope. Still can't see it and get the same message, plus "Video has not been loaded. Mini Golf is currently unavailable." I did see the photo of Kate grilling in the white shirt. Why is her right "girl" more inflated than her left one?

Midnight Madness said...

And of course on weekends during their formative years she was on weekends going to churches to pad her wallet instead of spending time with her 8 very small kids.

She wasn't away at speaking engagements only on weekends. During that time she was flitting to and fro and leaving her kids with a plethora of sitters.

I saw the golf clip and I didn't see anything wrong with the shots. Yes, they technically shot up the girls shorts but it showed nothing at all. The shorts were too tight to view anything. I think it turned out that way was they were filming the ball.

The most important thing is the clip was boring as usual. These kids are typical 15 years. In fact they are probably more boring than most 15 year olds. The only thing interesting about the twins at all is Mady being a bitch. I said "interesting" that is ALL. If Mady was behaved the twins would be 100% boring for TV viewing purposes.

I think TLC is still with this family because in a few years all eight will be in their teen years and that will bring tons of drama. How will Kate deal with that? Alot of people will be interested in what they have to say as adults and how they turned out. And of course they will be dating, proms, college, marriages, children, etc. The Duggar show really gained in viewership when their three kids (Josh, Jill, and Jessa) started dating, married, and raising kids.

Also I think they gave Kate 8 episodes because of the Duggars being cancelled. Who knows, I think Kate promised TLC she would date during this season and that is why they may have given her a season to explore that. But after viewing her "fake date" and Jeff bowing out they saw what a drag and uninteresting person she is as a dater and therefore only filmed that one dating show. In fact when TLC signed Kate up for this season she may have been dating Jeff and they wanted to explore that. Of course that never happened and they were forced to film the kids in 7 of the 8 episodes.

Jane said...

Apparently the folks at Nielsen ratings are now using Twitter unique tweets to rank television shows. Complicated but interesting. And Kate doesn't show up on any charts I could find.

Eee--ghads. I remember the first few times the show dipped under a million and most of us were predicting it was done. We were right.

But like you said, it's a different time. Will this be enough to keep her on the teat? I don't know, but I have a hard time believing it would be. Those numbers are awful even for cable.

I would be so embarrassed if I were Kate. This big comeback was an absolute flop. No one is interested.

And no, I don't think the debates played much of a role. I can't picture a sheeple being interested in civics.

P.J. said...

I think sKate was cancelled the first time because of her behaviour. I don't know that numbers factored into it. The numbers were a lot higher than they are now. I think she was just that miserable to work with. Maybe the crews were all refusing to work with her? They ended with the RV trip and everyone saw what a barrel of laughs that was.

She actually looked chagrined when she said later on that she'd like another chance to "hit it out of the park".

I think they fired her sorry ass because of her attitude. Now, she's back at bargain basement prices and she still slips up in the nasty department.

Yes, sKate, you've been marked down.
