@Kateplusmy8: December: That month that you inevitably end up MEMORIZING your credit card number/Info after using it online 3,000 times in a week!

She's tone deaf.

Remember (long ago) when Kate tweeted about eating a salad with dates, then specified that they were the fruit, not actualy "dates"--she didn't want to cause a media frenzy?
------------------------------
The fruit? It must be autocorrect again, but I'm darned if I know what this means.

-------------------------
Absolutely. Also, you'd think she'd have the oh-so-dangerous one-click shopping on Amazon.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Admin (#1), yep, she's just piecin' and patchin' for 9, but still makes it to her monthly spa getaway. Gosh, what mom can't relate to that? Meanwhile, her fans might be trying to scrape up a few extra bucks for the holidays after paying for an unexpected car and/or home repair, or a medical emergency.

If TFW admits to doing her shopping now, how will
we be expected to believe the "storyline" of her last-minute shopping frenzy 2 weeks from now?
Oh, wait, her fans will believe anything.

PatK said...

I believe Kate is hoping their "seasons" continue thru next Fall at least, so TLC can provide the twins with sporty little cars for their 16th birthday extravaganza.

Methinks the twins are going to make out like bandits and the sextuplets will get screwed, because I don't see the Gosselins having a show in another five years.

Call Me Crazy said...

That synopsis of the episode sounds positively riveting. Along with totally fresh and unique. I am on the edge of my seat wondering what kind of zaniness that wild and wacky Gosselin gang will get into next.

rainbowsandunicorns said...

From the previous thread...

"TLC must have faith that they can boost the ratings and I suspect they're targeting that group because the Gosselin kids are in that age range now. For sure they'll be playing up the teen angst angle."

-----
-----

There are also the middle-aged sheeple, the Denises, Carlenes, etc., who, for some reason, have a penchant for ogling kids on television. You'd think by now they would have matured, developed some critical thinking regarding the exploitation of children on reality television and Kate's obsession to put them on display for money. However, they take their places among those teenies/Beliebers in not being able to see the forest for the trees. The teens are young and still wet behind the ears. There is no excuse for the "grown up" sheeple.

"Gird your loins! Put on your athletic cup! Avert your eyes if you can!!!!!!!"

You talking about Gladys? Her loins indeed will be girded (and quivering), and she will dig around for LOM's athletic cup! Hey, Milo, how is the fit on that thing working out for you?

How much piecin' and patchin' can you be doing if you use your credit card 3,000 times a week? Come on, Kate, explain that one!

jamezvader1194 said...

@patK i agree however a part of me believes TLC will try to do what they did with the duggars and do spinoff shows.Can you image the Mady and Cara show.Although from the way the twins act.I doubt Cara would want to,maybe Mady.

fidosmommy said...

*******
A date is a fruit. A date is also the person you go out with for an evening. Kate didn't want anyone to misunderstand her - she was having a salad that contained dates, not salad with a male acquaintance.
All-too-cute Katie just had to point that out. Because she's a laugh a minute, ya know?

Tucker's Mom said...

I assume discussing the kids' heritage means their Korean heritage, which Kate surely can not think she can do a better job than their Korean dad and grandmother.
I wonder if Kate will deign to discuss their maternal heritage.

I wonder if she can convince TLC to take them to S. Korea, or you know, just Korea?

localyocul said...

So for some stupid reason while getting ready to go to my second job of the day I am watching The RV episode. They really did pull out all pretenses of this being reality in this episode. I missed the beginning but I remember she says "quit playing making a tv show". At Mt Rushmore (with "FDR") she goes OK were good let's cut this. Now, at Old Faithful Mady was raised her hand and said she knew something: "It's a volcano or a geyser and I always forget that part.." Then she yells at Hannah: "that was my fact!" (couldn't hear what Hannah said) but then Mady was whining that she wanted to "do it over" or start over. This is their "vacation". TFW hurrying them around because people are taking pics and tweeting (which makes me giggle because people do it even more now),going to an attraction, doing a short take, spouting some facts, and rushing out. Just like what was described at the corn maze.

I also saw the clip of Mady explaining about the boy at the beach. He wanted to know what show was being filmed. Remember it was reported they were roped off. Mady says, that's fine, we were prominent he wanted to know...this is NOT a family vacation

running mummy ‏@mumlvs2run
@Kateplusmy8 You have a marathon going now @TLC 😊 #KatePlus8

Wow. Thanks for pointing that out to her. I'm sure she didn't know.

You just have to wonder why the adult sheep, many of whom are parents, never managed to grow up and are still entertained by someone else's children frolicking on the beach, going back-to-school shopping and running around at birthday parties. Psychologically, it's an interesting look into what makes these fans "tick" and why they would spend an entire day watching a marathon of exploitation. Why are they so stunted in the Middle School mentality?

Anonymous said...

You know, at least with the Duggars, and as much as I really detest the idea that TLC is moving forward with the married daughters, they are actually moving forward in another direction. With Kate and her 8, it's just really same old, same old. And tonight, in December they are presenting the Gosselin summer. Who gives a rat's anything about summer, past summer at that, right now. And she's going to explain their father's Korean heritage to whom? The audience, the kids? That's just a major insult, unless of course she has convinced TLC their father is dead. I honestly do not understand who at that network gave the green light to this nonsense.

lol! There goes Jon's cover. He's been keeping it from them until they're old enough to understand biracialism.

Good grief. She hates him just.that.much.

As an aside, Mel, every time I read or hear someone say 'waddya mean' I think of the old Hermann cartoons by Mick Unger. They were hilarious.

Heritage???? From whom? They should have already learned about their heritage from Jon and his mother.

It would be heartbreaking to see the kids go to S. Korea with Kate instead of Jon.
With Kate, it will all about her getting attention as an American Barbie mom with 8 Korean kids.
Her ignorance shown in NYC's Chinatown was astounding.
Maybe she can point out the Asian writing in S. Korea, or maybe, just maybe, after an all expense paid free trip, she will realize Asia is actually a continent, not a language or race.

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

I wish I knew. I sometimes wonder if they do "get it," but are so caught up with being able to say that they are friends with a "celebrity" and therefore they continue to suck up to her. Speaking of being enamored with celebrities, The Doctors aired an interesting segment on whether crushes on celebrities can play havoc with your health. When you're as deep into the worship as Milo is, then yes, your health can suffer.

PA is cracking down on child abuse. Finally:

"A Leola mother has lost custody of all four children after being convicted in October for beating her 6-year-old son with a belt.

Rebecca A. Souden, 35, will serve one to two years at Lancaster County Prison, followed by three years of probation.

She was sentenced Monday by Lancaster County Judge Donald Totaro, according to court documents.


The sentence, according to Lancaster County district attorney spokesman Brett Hambright, is the maximum term a judge can order at Lancaster County Prison.

Souden, of 27 Ethel Ave., was convicted Oct. 1 for endangering a child and simple assault after the Jan. 16 beating, newspaper records show.

According to a previous report, “a social worker at the boy’s school discovered the abuse after noticing welts on his face. Larger welts were then discovered on the boy’s buttocks. Police alleged Souden beat the boy's buttocks with a belt.”

The district attorney’s office reported Tuesday that Souden no longer has custody of her four children.

Her guardian rights over the 6-year-old victim and another child are pending, the DA said. She previously lost custody of two other children due to investigations involving social services.

So the "little girls" are finally allowed to pack their own bags (read here much?) and they are helpless. Of course, the crew daddies are right there in their bedroom while their trying to pack, and while they're going into their bathroom trying on outfits.
WTF is wrong with this woman? Kate is nowhere around and there are men in her 11-year old girls bedrooms.
Mady was being a great big sister trying to help them pack, but do people really need to know Alexis likes to wear the same clothes over and over again, and that she's VERY self conscious?

Thanks for the ^^ link, Tucker's Mom.

Except for the flat screen tv on the wall in the tup girls bedroom, they're void of any photos, pictures, decorations - it looked like they at least, had some personal items on the small chests in the room.

Layla said...

This is supposed to be an episode about the end of school/going on vacation, right? School ended in June, but wasn't the trip to Florida in August?

Funny thing happened at work today--I stopped by the office to finish some paperwork, and when I left, the (bored) receptionist was clicking through channels on the TV. She paused at one of the reruns of Kate Plus 8, watched for a few seconds, then said, "You know, I used to love that show when the dad was on. Now it's just pathetic". Then continued clicking until she found Ellen (Degeneres).

Layla said...

Didn't they also have new luggage when they went to Maine? I think the kids' named were embroidered on them. How many sets of luggage do they need?

redbird said...

TFW said that she was going into room assignment mode, that she knew which kids could get along.

Whoa, NELLIE!

What about the Boston trip? The arguments, the hurt feelings, the snubbing of siblings on their room assignments?

She is certifiable and a history rewriter.

And you know what even if she doesn't want to stop filming, she does realize it's very easy to get twitter to take down fake accounts right? They are MUCH better now. Last month my friend did it for someone impersonating him, and all they had to do was scan their passport and send the PDF to twitter to verify they are who they say they are and that the account is fake.

Twitter had the account taken down within 16 hours. Take care of your children, Kate.

What happened to the days when she just told TLC to take care of it? I guess they don't know how to help her anymore. Heck, if she can't find a service person for her dryer, does anyone really expect her to know how to contact Twitter? I'm sure, though, those helpful sheeple will get right on it.

I just stunned.

Alexis asked her mother if they were French, or whatever and she said, WE'RE MUTTS! She said she was a mutt and the kids were mutts and Korean.

Why would you call your children MUTTS? They will be teased unmerciful at school.

Did you hear Mady screaming and talking so rude to Andrea? Wait in a year or two when Mady is worse and aims it toward her mother. They were all horrible in the panic room and TFW was the worst.

She is mentally ILL!!

Jane (#39), thanks for that Fish Wrapper link! Whoa, if she hasn't already, I do hope the woman who wrote it finds this blog. She will be among friends!

Sad but true said...

The numbers tell the story. Over the hour of her new episode, she got about 850 tweets (with, of course, many people tweeting multiple times). This is way fewer than we've seen when she's "live" tweeted a new show before this. And as for new twitter followers, she only added about 400 over the course of an entire 16-hour marathon of K8 Plus K8 today. I don't think any of this is a surprise, but it does suggest she's not attracting any new viewers.

But the biggest surprise of the "premiere"? Where on earth was MILO? Not a tweet the entire day.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I wonder if something happened between Em and the family. Maybe the reality of actually knowing them in person was not what she imagined. Maybe Kate didn't invite her back as much as she would have liked.

For Em to specifically say she's watching something else on TV tonight, a different reality show no less, seems like a deliberate snub. Not that I at all have a problem with it. She *should* move on.

Sad but true (#67), Gladys hashtagging her husband's

a narcissist as the object of her affection.

tbryant said...

I did not watch the entire show. What I did watch was a woman that spoke to the camera ( in front of her kids ) as if she were on a TV show and not reality.
As a mom of 6 and g-mom to 2 I could NEVER imagine speaking about my kids to anyone (let alone a camera) regarding my lovies downfalls or undoing in front of the whole world.
She had absolutely no respect for her family. It was like the kids were on a TV screen and she was the commentator.

I wonder if something happened between Em and the family. Maybe the reality of actually knowing them in person was not what she imagined. Maybe Kate didn't invite her back as much as she would have liked.

For Em to specifically say she's watching something else on TV tonight, a different reality show no less, seems like a deliberate snub. Not that I at all have a problem with it. She *should* move on.

((

Could she be miffed she wasn't invited on this vacation?

I just stunned.

Alexis asked her mother if they were French, or whatever and she said, WE'RE MUTTS! She said she was a mutt and the kids were mutts and Korean.

That was seriously the extent of her explanation to her children about their ethnic heritage?

college?

This is supposed to be an episode about the end of school/going on vacation, right? School ended in June, but wasn't the trip to Florida in August?

-----------------------
The FL filming was very early in June, I don't think they'd even been out of school a week. They pretty much filmed the entire summer and on through Labor Day. And I would bet there was more filmed in October (twins' b'day).

Thanks for the ^^ link, Tucker's Mom.

Except for the flat screen tv on the wall in the tup girls bedroom, they're void of any photos, pictures, decorations - it looked like they at least, had some personal items on the small chests in the room.

)))

I thought TFW said there were no tvs in the bedrooms???

I left the TV on for my dog while I went to work. Unfortunately I left TLC on so they got my dog's ratings. Anyway I got home about 9:50 and caught the end of a Korean Barbecue. But I also caught the preview for next week. Deep sea fishing (TFW LOVES deep sea fishing). She says "I thought maybe my kids wouldn't get sick this time". Then they showed a kid puking over the rail. That bitch played the puking card again. GIVE YOUR KIDS SOME DRAMAMINE

Home from a long trip in the 🌞 and the sand with kids.We had a BLAST & are sun kissed and happy! Now..time 2 unpack! #TheOnlyPartIHate ☀️🐬🐟🌴

They had 2 specials air in June, so of course the kids were working then too, doing the couch interviews. Plus Mady and Cara did the block party with her in May. So, yes, they've been working most of the time since school ended.

If I recall, Em flapped her gums to a nonfan. Something about the kid's meds? I'm guessing she was kicked to the curb after that little screw-up. The non-fan threatened to make the DMs public.

Meanwhile, on RHOBH, watching Yolanda suffering through some weird illness that may or may not be lymes disease is weird, knowing the she and David Foster are divorcing. In their scenes they're all kissy-face and I love yous are flying. Now, 6 months later and it's Hasta la vista, baby.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

TLC Stinks (#83), a 10-day vacation for 9 - wow.
Of course the obvious costs make this sort of thing laughably unreachable for the average family. But what about the additional expense of pet care? Didn't someone have to tend Shoka and Zorro for
those 10 days? Plus the chickens? And the fish?
That alone would be hundreds of dollars. But in this case, every cent would be reimbursed by TLC.
TFW is utterly unrelatable.

prairiemary said...

I did not watch, spent time on twitter tweeting things others did not know, a full time job when it comes to the saga of tfw! Someone posted the part of the book, word for word, about when she picked up a boy by his hair, threw them into the crib. It was a great idea to post that, people need to know. There was a picture of Jon at one of his gigs, think it must have been a selfie, but don't know much about selfies. Good to see him on the night his kids were on t.v..I hate that people think she looks so good after having 8 kids! Don't they know by now that with thousands of dollars (the Kid's Thousands) you can be chiseled and re-molded to have the body of a 30 year old? They sure must live sheltered lives, don't keep up with the times very well. I have very low self-esteem, but in the 8 years I have been creating my own anti-aging creams & serums, tfw has lines and wrinkles where I have none, and I am a lot older than she is. Those fans of her are very un-educated. She is not growing younger, or backwards people, it's the money she spends being recreated into who we see she is, after the work has healed.
And I sure hope that the 2 teens are talking to boys, and flirting a little, that means they are normal 15 year old girls!

She reminds me of a woman I used to work with. She blew the monthly allotment of petty cash on the most ridiculous, expensive crap, yet when it came to spending her own money she was so tight she squeaked.

I'm glad TLC has no problem fulfilling her demands. I guess this petty stuff is way cheaper than $250,000 per episode.

Sounds like the usual snooze fest. I watched my recording of the FX series "Fargo" last night. If you were a fan of the original movie, you have to watch season one and two on FX. It has the same flavor and dark humor of the Coen brothers as the movie with different characters. Love the accents!

Recap:

http://www.celebdirtylaundry.com/2015/kate-plus-8-recap-12815-season-4-episode-1-premiere-schools-out/


Kate says they can each have a piece of luggage they’re in charge of packing and moving around. She says they are very excited about that. Kate pulls up the mega van and the younger kids go shopping with her for luggage. She says Joel woke up with a backache.
He was excited to get new luggage since he loves to travel but he’s sick today. She finds him a chair while they find luggage. He has a headache and upset stomach too but wanted to come along and pick out luggage. They find the right department and start picking out things.

Mel said...

I think all of her commands are for the camera's benefit only. She probably does nothing with them if the cameras aren't rolling.

She barks all those commands, doesn't even bother to note if anyone is listening, which they aren't. She's just yelling into the air, yelling at the backs of their heads usually.

Interestingly, no one does what she says, either. And she doesn't follow through to make them do it.

They just continue doing whatever they were doing in the first place, as if she hadn't said anything at all. She's clearly just background noise.

Walk single file? I'm surprised she didn't make them hold hands, too.

Mel said...

I think her saying that they're mutts is because she just could not bring herself to say anything even remotely positive about *anything* to do with Jon.

It was yet another way for her to demean Jon. Heritage, shmeritage to her. Another opportunity for her to be dismissive of anything Jon.

I bet she *hated* that production idea. She probably got somebody fired over that one!

I clearly remember being 12, being waaaaaaaaaay more mature than the G kids, way more independent in every way.

I alluded to this yesterday- how will Kate address her own heritage, which is the kids' heritage, too. Or, will she at all.
It's astounding and a exercise in denial and hatred that she can not even discuss where the kids' maternal heritage comes from.
The majority of their heritage is not Korean, but of course, that's how their genes are expressed.
Which is to say, what is a big part of the draw, so play that up and sweep everyone and everything else away.

Oh, and I'd bet Dunkin Donuts to dollars that Jon has made the bulgogi all on his own.

My bet is that it was all Kate's idea to act like she has to take over everything, including educating the kids about their Korean heritage.
Because she does it all alone, Jon is dead and apparently so are all his KOREAN relatives.
As if Jon and his mom have never cooked them bulgogi or other Korean dishes as a way that many parents and grandparents do to pass along heritage, customs and food.

What a farce.

She has been directly observed driving beyond recklessly with and without her kids in the car.
It's all an act to make Kate the super mom.

Those kids do not understand their heritage because they have been kept away from relatives. I would think by now, they would have been curious before this show.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Mel (#119), it's always been my contention that TFW spends very little time alone with her kids. She's admitted to having an afterschool babysitter and/or homework helper. So the kids are away from home for at least 8 hours, and then someone else is in their house -- perhaps until bedtime. So I think that's why her authority falls on deaf ears during filming.
The kids are either used to paying attention to another adult (or teen) sitter, or just being left to their own devices. I sincerely don't believe that she enjoys being a mother, but she most definitely enjoys the perks of playing one on TV.

I just watched the end of the show where Kate is talking about the kids' heritage. Apparently, she thinks Hawaiian is a nationality. This is what she said in her couch interview when asked about Jon's heritage and if he was a 100% Korean:

"He's half Korean and so my kids would be a quarter, Korean Hawaiian. His Mom was born in Hawaii, his grandma came to Hawaii-so there's a lot of influences Hawaiian slash Korean".

Gee, next time I'm asked what my heritage is, rather than say Polish/American, I will say Polish/New Yorker.

She's dumb as bricks. I have heard people refer to themselves as "native Hawaiian" but if I'm not mistaken they mean Polynesian. If you just come there from N/S Korea and live there, you're not "Hawaiian." His mother is not Polynesian, is she? I really can't remember if any of his relatives looked Polynesian.

TLC stinks said...

Interesting. If Jon's mother was born in Hawaii, then it's even more strange she was not in attendance for the notorious vow renewal. You would think the mother-in-law would be present plus want to visit with relatives. Proves again everyone, except the viewers, knew the vow renewal was a shame and the marriage was over.

When Kate said that Andrea was coming along on the trip, she said that Andrea had gone with them to Mexico, and also said that she had going with them to Australia and New Zealand.

So she's not some "old" friend--she's obviously a nanny or a TLC employee.

Here's a picture that shows Andrea when they were in the airport in Australia. She's the one behind Aaden.

Mel said...

Yeah, it was very clear that TFW is not an authority figure in their lives. My impression watching that was that they're not used to having her around, and thus they paid absolutely NO attention to anything she was saying.

IMO, it appeared that they're used to someone else issuing them directions, not their mother.

She herself appeared to have no expectation that they were going to follow orders. She was just flapping for the cameras. Trying to make herself look like what she thinks a mom would do.

Once again, missing the mark.

Mel said...

A link to Jon's heritage. Who know if it's true.

http://www.tmz.com/person/jon-gosselin/

Gosselin's mother was born and raised in Hawaii as a second generation Korean American (his maternal grandparents emigrated from Korea), and his father is of French, Irish, and Welsh descent.

A link re: TFW's heritage:
http://www.answers.com/Q/What_is_Kate_Gosselin%27s_ethnic_heritage

Kate Gosselin is Pennsylvania Dutch, ... the Pennsylvania Dutch people are primarily descendants of immigrants from Germany)

It actually looks like she has less of a 'mutt' heritage than Jon.

Jon would be 1/4 Korean, right? Part Korean, French, Irish, Welsh.

That would make the kids 1/8 Korean, 1/8 French, 1/8 Irish, 1/8 Welsh, ... and 1/2 Pennsylvania Dutch.

Am I thinking that out right?

Wow. That is amazing, localyocal! 11 years old.

If TFW would of just taken the TIME a couple of years ago she could of taught the kids how to pack their suitcases. She could of took 15 minutes for the girls, another day, the boys, and way before that the twins. Just as she should have with shoelaces. SHE'S LAZY and just doesn't have the maternal instinct to teach her children what to do.

Female animals that have babies are more caring and loving to their young than she ever was. They teach survival skills, and when it is time to let them go, they lovingly let them go.

She is raising helpless, messed up kids and will kick them out in a heartbeat when she realizes she can't handle them anymore. She is that cruel.

Did you see all of the tup girls demonstrating how their mother reacted to something, I can't remember what it was, but wow they were telling the world that their mother screeches, screams and grips.

Uncontrolled chaos, just like at that hotel they all stayed at with the kids friends.

Ashley doesn't have a sister. According to Carla's FB page, she has 5 children, 1 girl and 4 boys-Ashley, Mark, Dillan, Eric and Devan.

Mel said...

Nope, I didn't think that out right.

Jon is 1/2 Korean, 1/6 each French, Irish, Welsh.
Kate is 100% German.

So the kids would be 1/2 German, 1/4 Korean, 1/12 each French, Irish, Welsh.

That could have been an interesting lesson. But no, she has to just be ugly about the whole thing.

Wow. That is amazing, localyocal! 11 years old.

)))

Yes! And she has anxiety and was terrifed to fly. We threw a going away party for her with leis and and a map showing her route. She had been going to her dad's house every other weekend since she was two and although he had some clothes there shoe would pack some, so she was used to packing. I remember her making her list haha. Of course I double checked her list and all, but she basically did it herself. And of course at 11 a steward keeps an eye on her but she did great!

localyocul said...

TFW could have done an Ancestry.com crossover and gotten TLC to spring for the DNA test they sell that shows your heritage. My sister got one for my mom who is 98% Irish with some Irish invaders mixed in.

@Kateplusmy8 what are you gonna do when they start having babies lol.

‏@Kateplusmy8

@MusicSoul18 babysit. Eight or more at a time. History repeats itself, don’t you know?

====

Yeah, sure. She couldn't handle her own babies without an army of helpers. What makes her think she can babysit eight or more at a time, or even wants to babysit. She might like holding babies for a minute or two and cooing over them, but it ends there. Who does she think she's kidding? Unless she can make money off them, they're nothing but a pain in her backside. Maybe her plan IS to shill the grandkids.

This show could go on forever.

Kate is a twit said...

Gosselin's mother was born and raised in Hawaii as a second generation Korean American (his maternal grandparents emigrated from Korea), and his father is of French, Irish, and Welsh descent.

Jon would be 1/4 Korean, right? Part Korean, French, Irish, Welsh.
----------

Both his grandparents were Korean, which make his mother 100% Korean. He's 50% Korean, getting that half from his mother. So thus the kids are 25% Korean( half of Jon's half).

Alexis asked if she was French, and Kate could've answered "well, yes, you also have some French heritage from your grandfather". Surprised she didn't, then she would have an excuse to take the kids to France to learn more about their heritage.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Localyocul (#156), I wouldn't be surprised if TLC tried to pitch an Ancestry.com story. But at some point, TFW would have to utter the words, "My parents are..." And that would bring attention to the fact that they don't seem to be a part of her life anymore. What with not knowing how to help her.

Tuned in last night just when they were going into the Escape Room and was wondering if it was mentioned why Colin was not with them.
================

I just played back that part, and when they show them walking to go into of the place, Collin is with them, but yet he is not shown anywhere else in that segment. No explanation was given.

When the boys were doing their couch interview about it, Joel and Aaden did all the talking and Collin just sat not saying a thing and looking very sad.



TLC stinks said...

I can see it now...grandma Kate...just like the Duggars. I think you found her out.

b said...

Interesting. If Jon's mother was born in Hawaii, then it's even more strange she was not in attendance for the notorious vow renewal. You would think the mother-in-law would be present plus want to visit with relatives. Proves again everyone, except the viewers, knew the vow renewal was a shame and the marriage was over.

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

Maybe she was there and just not shown in the episode, and perhaps she didn't want to be filmed. Was it ever said that she wasn't present at the wedding? Also, wasn't there a time when she was ill or injured or something (her foot or her leg)?

TLC stinks said...

I go with the theory that Andrea is a TLC nanny hire.

TLC stinks said...

b, I think in the back of my mind there was some explanation as to why the parents were not at the vow renewal.

Anonymous said...

I'm surprised that the kids know so little about their background; one would think that by this time, they would have had more than one school project on My Heritage. My K grandson just did one. Seriously, how does she help them with the Family Tree project? They goe to school with bare branches on their trees?

What a total idiot.

It was heart breaking seeing Collin. That poor little fellow not saying a word and made to sit on the couch with his brothers for entertainment purposes; very disturbing.

************
Poor Collin. In the back-to-school picture she posted in August, he looked so...vacant. He didn't look at the camera and his smile (if you could call it that) was so sad. There is something wrong there, and she doesn't even seem to care. As long as she can shove him in front of a camera and make some money off him, she'll dismiss anything else going on with him. He just seems so defeated and joyless, and he's just a kid!

It absolutely was. More boring than usual if that's possible. I turned it off after the panic room fiasco. The only thing that exercise in team building proved was that Kate is NOT a team player.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I remember spotting Steve all the time in the background of earlier episodes, and thinking,
who's this gray-haired dude who's always around?
So I guess this Andrea got promoted from lurking
in the shadows to supporting cast member.

Damn it....fell asleep before 8:00 last night...I missed her big return to tv....I don't know if I can live with myself ☺️.....any word on ratings?
I'm sure Gladys was glued to her show all day...can you picture it? doesn't that make you physically ill! I know I feel kinda sick...

I would not be one bit surprised if that's her intention. Hopefully most of the G8 will leave the nest with their own plans in life, not hers. Writing a tell-all book might among them.

Emergency! Life and death situation. She needs that recipe!

Good gawd, how needy/helpless are these sheeple and what will she do if Kate doesn't post that recipe? Google it, dumb-dumb!

Janice in Mo said...

As I recall, she stated that they took the kids tutor with them to Australia. This was during the time the 2 kids had been expelled. Maybe Andrea is working with Collin. It was heartbreaking to see that he was obviously left out of that activity. Maybe his choice, but probably due to the inability to handle stressful social situations without hitting. I just remember when the went to swim with the dolphins and she said we couldn't have Alexis be left out.

I think Alexis has her issues too.

I repeat:MADY AND CARA DO NOT HAVE TWITTER OR ANY social media..DO NOT TWEET ANY1 POSING AS THEM! SO UPSETTING!Wish twitter would end this!
----------------

I find it odd that Kate felt it necessary to make this disclaimer and to expressly order her tweeties not to tweet to the fake accounts. How would she know if they did? Unless, she saw some of the tweeties that she added to her following list tweet to a couple of the fake accounts.

I'm actually surprised that TLC hasn't insisted that Mady and Cara get public twitter accounts so that they could live tweet during the show too. I'm sure all there tween and teenage fans would love that.

But, of course, that would never happen because for Kate it always has to be about her, all her.

JR said...

why do I get the horrible feeling that those kids will always be in her grasp so she can continue to film forever...it just seems hopeless...I hope I'm wrong...it seems endless....I can't believe we're still talking about her episodes!🙄🙄

Blowing In The Wind said...

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

Gladys tends not to tweet much during "live" tweeting sessions. She knows that she won't be the center of attention, so she backs off until Kate appears on other days when Milo's auto alert goes off to notify her that Kate is on Twitter. Then she tries a plethora of ways to get a response from Kate. Kravitz is a Kharacter!

Fired Up 4 Kate @MiloandJack
@Kateplusmy8 I know this timeline is about 2 become a massive wave of tweets & best wishes! Have a gr8 nite!Thanks 4sharing ur sweet family!

KIAT (#175), as others have said, I bet anything M&C have social media accounts on the downlow that their friends know about, but Mommie Dearest doesn't.

Jon's parents? It would have just been his mother. His father is deceased. Kate's parents certainly wouldn't have been there, having been ousted from the family tree.

Jamesvader1194 said...

@Kate is a twit Personally im glad Mady and Cara don't have public twitter accounts.It would just be chaos from both Kate haters and the Kate fans that want Jon's children to hate him.The haters would send them tweets about the Gosselin book whereas the fans would send them links to negative stories and articles about Jon.I image Glady's would just try to kiss Kate butt by tweeting to the twins something like"You girls are so lucky to have a mom like @Kateplus8 who loves you and protects you #Happytwins."So yea,im glad the twins dont have public twitter or facebook accounts.

Those kids do not understand their heritage because they have been kept away from relatives. I would think by now, they would have been curious before this show. She sure presents these kids as very immature. They very well may be, but she treats them as much younger kids so she can show what a protective mother hen she is.

Another point that I'm gobsmacked that any adult sheep can't see.
Who didn't know what nationality their parents are as they grew up?
You'd have to be an orphan to be that unaware of what mommy is and what daddy is heritage-wise.
It's a conversation you have with your 5-6 year old.
If sheep can't see how clearly this demonstrates how Kate has estranged her family and is keeping her children isolated (like a typical abuser), I don't know that they'll ever wake the f*ck up.
What gives me solace is that I'd bet money that Jon is giving these kids normalcy with extended family and friends.
Thank God they have their dad.

Can you imagine the stuff Mady would tweet? It would be a ferschnop fest. (thanks for that word PA Dutch! lol) My guess is that's exactly why Kate won't allow them to have public accounts.

She won't be able to shut them up forever though. Her day is coming.

A link to Jon's heritage. Who know if it's true.

http://www.tmz.com/person/jon-gosselin/

Gosselin's mother was born and raised in Hawaii as a second generation Korean American (his maternal grandparents emigrated from Korea), and his father is of French, Irish, and Welsh descent.

A link re: TFW's heritage:
http://www.answers.com/Q/What_is_Kate_Gosselin%27s_ethnic_heritage

Kate Gosselin is Pennsylvania Dutch, ... the Pennsylvania Dutch people are primarily descendants of immigrants from Germany)

It actually looks like she has less of a 'mutt' heritage than Jon.

Jon would be 1/4 Korean, right? Part Korean, French, Irish, Welsh.

That would make the kids 1/8 Korean, 1/8 French, 1/8 Irish, 1/8 Welsh, ... and 1/2 Pennsylvania Dutch.

Am I thinking that out right?

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

TFW in every situation, ALWAYS comes out on top!

Kate wins again!

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

Gladys would pester the living daylights out of those kids. They would have to block her and you know what would happen if she were ignored. Hide the bunny. She inserts herself into tweets that Kate has with Deanna and Jamie and everyone else, so yes, she would be 'communicating' with the twins trying to find out personal information, giving advice, and just generally being an annoyance.

Tucker's Mom said...

Gee, next time I'm asked what my heritage is, rather than say Polish/American, I will say Polish/New Yorker.
******
Hey, I'm Polish Pennsylvanian!

redbird said...

The twins could easily have twitter accounts where the general public couldn't tell by their handle that they actually were M and C. But their closest friends do.

Maybe Mommy taught them a lesson and they, not her, got them to sign a non-disclosure. You know they know about it because of having children's parents sign them for the birthday parties.

redbird said...

What makes me ill is TFW's reaction to M and C just talking to 3 boys at the beach and her thinking it was so horrible. They were just talking for pete's sake!

I think she has the nerve to talk. She was living with different boyfriends at their parents homes before the age of 18 and they were waiting on her hand and foot. Did she sleep in a guest room or in the same room with her boyfriend?

There is a difference.

Kate is a twit said...

I checked the Kate plus 8 FB page and 90% of the comments are about how Mady is a brat, the kids are brats, etc. This one kind of sums up a lot of the comments:

"I was really looking forward to seeing the kids tonight....OMG....I am so disappointed actually shocked at the way those children act.
1. KATE sets no examples for those children. ..look at the way they talk to their mother...they actually called her stupid. And the way she talks to them. ..it's no wonder.
MADDY AND CARA: spoiled brats...it's can't believe how they yell at their mother and treat their little brothers and sisters. Sad
TLC...take them off the air...you only make them look worse. I wasted my time watching...hoping it would get better but all they did was fight and argue. I'm glad I know now...won't be watching the rest of the series. Very disappointed as I was looking forward to seeing the kids. ..now I know...they are spoiled rotten and don't deserve to be on TV."

Caught some of Law and Order this morning. They did a show about reality tv and the name of the reality show was Larry Plus 10!

The producer was on the stand and was asked about how they screened the people on the show. He said,
We WEED OUT THE UNSTABLE!

Looks like TLC didn't weed her out!

The producer also said that they take what's there and AMPLIFY IT!

TLC does that to distraction!

Ironic that this episode was made in 2009 when Jon and TFW split.

It's interesting to note that, if you look at the TLC FB page, there's no mention of last night's K+8 episode. They always post reminders to watch each night's show, but the last post was about "I Am Jazz" coming back for another season. That one was on Dec 7th. Nothing at all for Dec 8. I bet they didn't want to deal with all the negative comments on their page, in addition to all the negative comments they still get about the Duggars.

I wonder if Kate's siblings and family watch the show. It is very hurtful to so rigidly and completely dismiss them by eschewing her heritage and history.
I feel for their pain.

I know awhile back it was thought that Kate's mother, Charlene(?), was defending Kate on blogs. I don't know if that was true, but it lead me to believe that maybe she did still have a relationship with her parents.
But now, it appears not. None whatsoever.
Very sad.

Right? I remember when my dd came home and told me a 13-year-old classmate had lost her virginity and everyone knew it. The same girl had a baby at 16 but seems to be doing well; still with the dad and raising the kid in an apartment together at 19. But I digress, the point is TFW lives in a bubble.

localyocul said...

Oh, and I am sure that kids at M and C's school are into al sorts of things. Often it's the richer kids who are into drugs and alcohol. And I'm not talking beer pong and weed. My dd switched her college freshman room to get away from her percocet-sniffing, adderal and oxycontin taking roommate.

Hi missed you guys
And all I have to say I refuse to watch anything that has to due with Kate now.-(I won't give her ratings).

TLC stinks said...

Geez. Kate is such a liar. Jon said the twins are on social media and they are on their phones like mom.

chefsummer #Leh said...

When I saw that she was grilling the Korean bbq my thought were.
1.Hope no one gets food poisoning.
2.That's Jon's idea.
3.Why is she back on tv?

What would the sheep say? Kate just jealous.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I think TFW might truly be terrified about the twins
dating, because it is their first real step towards independence. She can manage bribing them to stick around for filming now, but once one of them falls in love, TFW may not be able to afford what it will take to buy their time and attention.

TLC stinks said...

I went to the Facebook page and read the comments. Mady is really getting hammered for her behavior and attitude. I know some people liked her spunk when she was younger, but an entitled teenager with anger issues should not be filmed for public viewing. Raising a teen with emotional issues is tough enough without putting it all out there. If Kate envisions Mady's lack of control will garner sympathy from other moms, she is wrong. Obviously the filming is stressing the kid.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Chef (#193), great to see you back!

The majority of their heritage is not Korean, but of course, that's how their genes are expressed.
-----------------
I've mentioned this before: the Gosselin kids look Korean to us because we are not Korean. To Korean people, they would look Caucasian. It's largely in the eye of the beholder.
