Discussion Thread: Kate Plus 8 'School Prep'

Kate Plus 8

School Prep10:00 PM on TLC, 1 hr 2016 TV-PG
The end of summer means it's time for the kids to go back to school, so Kate takes them shopping for clothes and supplies, and they all work together on one more seasonal project.

Just want to move this comment from the last 1.This person deleted this twit but it seems her fans think that Kate calling the magic show lame was a joke.I guess Kate calling collin's gift off the wall was a joke to.Sad part is that if Jon said something like this,these fans would be all over him and call him a disgusting father who should have his custody removed.SMH

Someone tweeted that they hope the State of the Union address will end on time so that they could watch Kate plus 8. The tweet was later deleted, maybe because Milo responded:

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack · 8m8 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 HaHa..love this choice! My bet Mom & the #TeenDrama shall prevail over Obama 2night! :) 10pm @TLC > https://twitter.com/dlh0404/status/687061451006021632 …

For one the SOTU is on a 9pm, and does she really think Kate's ratings are going to beat the SOTU?

PatK said...

OMG, she's still at it about the deck.

Maybe I've only seen bad angles of her property but it never struck me as particularily stunning. It's a big grassy long and a line of trees from Home Depot.

There are many parts of Pennsylvania that are just stunning, with gorgeous navy blue mountains and flowing hills. I don't see that their view takes advantage of the best that area has to offer, but I could be wrong.

TLC stinks said...

Shanin, desperate times call for desperate measures. Next we'll be watching the boys cleaning the bathrooms with a toothbrush.

Kate just tweeted:
That moment when u realize the only way the laundry will still get folded 2day is if u pile baskets on2 ur bed obstructing ur ability2sleep!

I thought she had a laundry person? She said she did.

Here we go again, she is obsessed with The Sound of Music HINT, HINT, TLC. She wants that free vacay and she wants it bad.

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

Didn't she end up in Australia when she thought she was going to Austria? lol!!

Kate's fans actually watch the State of the Union address? Do they know what it is? I don't know that the address would have any effect whatsoever on Kate's show. Different demographics.

So Crazy Gladys thinks that the ratings for Kate's show will be higher than those for Obama's address? Milo really is out of her ever-lovin' mind. Since the SOTU is scheduled for 9 to 11, ET, and Kate's show is at 10 p.m., then everyone who watches the address will switch over to Kate's show at 10. Sure they will.

TLC stinks said...

Kate's property is pretty but not stunning. Milo acts like she'd like to be sitting on that deck. She's in heaven tonight with Kate answering her tweets. This is what I mentioned on an earlier post about Kate encouraging the platitudes from Milo and making her feel like she's included in the inner circle. As long as Milo kisses Kate's behind, Kate will respond.

jamezvader1194 said...

@TLC stinks 1 last thing about Gladys for me today.All i have to say is,regardless of who he/she is(unless paid PR)its definitely a cause of celebrity worship syndrome.I still can't grasp why Kate would give a shout out to her of all fans and not someone else or other fans?Why just Milo?

I don't remember all of the circumstances at that time. KIAT most likely does. I think that Milo had told Kate about her poor health (that she had a progressive disease), Kate felt sorry for her, and gave her a shout-out.

One of the slowest fans on Twitter asked why Beth should have gone along to the book signings because nobody was interested in her. Someone said that Hoda's co-author was on national television with her. Should she have not been there since nobody would have been interested in hearing what she had to say? Gosh, Hoda, the nerve of you to have her with you!

How do the Twitter sheep know how much Beth was paid? Did Kate disclose this, or did Kate tell Milo and Milo told the rest of the flock?

NJGal51 said...

More book discussion.

MsGoody2Shoes21 (@@msgoody2shoes21): @LaniganMartien @Kateplusmy8 Kate doesn't have a biography w/ her very own words. It's a bullshit book based on a STOLEN & MODIFIED journal

RunnerPa (@@runner_pa): @Kateplusmy8 @msgoody2shoes21 @LaniganMartien Beth Carson wrote Multiple Blessings. Now you don't speak to either of the coauthors.

MsGoody2Shoes21 (@@msgoody2shoes21): @runner_pa @Kateplusmy8 @LaniganMartien Y'all act like Kate is the ONLY celebrity to have HER WORDS/LIFE written by a professional writer

Fired Up 4 Kate (@@MiloandJack): @msgoody2shoes21 @Kateplusmy8 Beth said she wrote Kate's words..it was Kate's story! Other book #IJWYTKnow was written totally by Kate ONLY!

Gee Whiz (@@GeeWhiz__): @MiloandJack @msgoody2shoes21 @Kateplusmy8 Exactly! She took dictation and compiled a book.

Fired Up 4 Kate (@@MiloandJack): @GeeWhiz__ @msgoody2shoes21 @Kateplusmy8 She WAS PAID SO WELL for taking dictation basically! Was generous of Kate to share as she did!

Gee Whiz (@@GeeWhiz__): @MiloandJack @msgoody2shoes21 @Kateplusmy8 Yep. Can't believe Beth thought she should go on book tours. No one was interested in her.

Gee Whiz (@@GeeWhiz__): @MiloandJack @msgoody2shoes21 @Kateplusmy8 There are many celebs who have ghost writers that stay in the background.

OR here's an idea... fold them when she takes them out of the dryer right there in her two-of-everything laundry room.

But then she wouldn't be able to send out a tweet about how she's just like every mom except that she's got X8 kids so it's harder on her than anyone else in THE WORLD.

Gaaa. She's most sickening when she's warming up her twitter audience. I'm sure right about now they're all having little tiny sheep orgasms in anticipation of tonight's episode.

It's one big corral jerk tonight, especially since Kate's trotting out Mady for live Tweeting ("through her").

Kate is a twit said...

Milo tweeted Kate and asked if Cara and Mady were going to watch the show with her.

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack · 1h1 hour ago
@Kateplusmy8 Will Cara & Mady stay up to watch tonight? You could tweet some of Mady's live commentary! LOL

So Kate tweeted:

Kate Gosselin ‏@Kateplusmy8 · 1h1 hour ago
@MiloandJack lol I actually thought of that..She'd love it but they have TONS of homework &need their sleep #9thGrade #HardWorkers #NextTime

So of course, that gave Milo the opportunity to praise her:

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack · 1h1 hour ago
@Kateplusmy8 Aww...I get that! #SchoolComesFirst But it would have been double the LOLs!

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack · 1h1 hour ago
@Kateplusmy8 I respect you for making sure your kids set their PRIORITIES correctly! That's why they will be successful in life!

Well, I guess Kate had second thoughts about and realized that she could use Mady as bait because she just tweeted:

Kate Gosselin@Kateplusmy8 · 5m5 minutes ago
Wait. What? I think Mady's done w/ her homework & is going to commentate #KatePlus8 at 10pm & tweet her thoughts thru me! #KatePlus8 @TLC

Kate is a twit said...

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack · 4m4 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 @TLC OMgosh...what is "commentate" Kate? Let the humor begin! LOL

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack · 1m1 minute ago
@Kateplusmy8 @TLC Be sure & tell MADY...you said she was going to "commentate"...I'm waiting 4her response on that? #KateSpeak #Majic LOL

Apparently Milo doesn't realize that "commentate" is an actual word, not #KateSpeak

Oh, and apparently Shoka ran in front of Kate's car again today, and it's sooooooooo funny!!!!!!!!!!!

No doubt Mady will get special privileges for this. "You're either with me or against me."! If any of those kids start to pull away from Kate's gravy train, I suspect they'll be shunned.

Fleecing The Sheeple said...

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

I thought the rumbling was due to Gladys thumping up and down on her sofa in anticipation of seeing her love interest! Move over, LOM. You will have to wait your turn tonight!

Kate is a twit said...

One of the sheeple wants Kate to video Mady's responses and then tweet the videos. Does she want proof that Mady's really there?

Denise ‏@Mydmaxx · 49s49 seconds ago
@Kateplusmy8 @TLC Can you video a few of her responses and tweet them out? That would be fun. She's hilarious just like you Kate.

Jamesvader1194 said...

@KIAT Next thing you know Kate will say all 8 kids wanted to watch the show in her bed.SMH why does anyone believe her?

Fleecing The Sheeple said...

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

I think that as I get older, I don't deal well with stupidity. Milo is dumber than a box of hair, but I find her to be interesting because I don't know if she really is this much of an idiot, or she just appears to be one because it generates attention on twitter.

Kate is a twit said...

Hmm, maybe Kate does have names for her countertops. After all, she named her deck:

Kate Gosselin‏@Kateplusmy8 · 4m4 minutes ago
@JeanneKaye yes and I'll have you know. My 'Deckster' as I call it (man, I loved that show!) just got snowed on for the first time tonight:(

And she just had to inform the Deck Dude, too.

Kate Gosselin‏@Kateplusmy8 · 3m3 minutes ago

One sheep wants Kate to film Mady's responses to the live tweet, and broadcast them.
Offering up her kids as bait like this is a really bad idea.

Fleecing The Sheeple said...

Gaaa. She's most sickening when she's warming up her twitter audience. I'm sure right about now they're all having little tiny sheep orgasms in anticipation of tonight's episode.

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

Milo has been kissing Kate's butt for years, and recently there have been weeks, even months that Kate hasn't responded. Milo has tried all kinds of platitudes, cute animal pictures, praises, questions (to set the record straight) and Kate has responded to other tweeters and ignored Milo.

Kate is a twit said...

Oh Lord, now they want her to tweet a picture of the deck with snow on it.

Angela Amick ‏@MommyAngela3 · 5m5 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 Post a pic! I watched w/my 9-yr-old & he'd love to see, too!

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack · 4m4 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 @TLC @TheDeckDude Aww...could you look out & take a pic of #Deckster w/his first snow? Seriously...it's an event! #memory

It's an event? Maybe today should be designated a national holiday next year to commemorate the the first snow that fell on the deck. Next, Milo will be telling her to freeze that snow and put it in a special container so they can relive that memory for years to come.

Kate is a twit said...

Well, bigger than usual anyway. Kate's finally been responding to her so there's that extra excitement.

Blech.

TLC stinks said...

LOL. Stressful? She makes it stressful for the cameras. She certainly does not have to worry about paying for the stuff. That woman can ruin anything.

I still believe that.

Fleecing The Sheeple said...

Next, Milo will be telling her to freeze that snow and put it in a special container so they can relive that memory for years to come.

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

Lord is right. What kind of containers do you use? Press and seal baggies, or ones with zippers? Tupperware? Would you slice it into cubes to chill a good Scotch and soda, or wait until it semi-melts and make slushies to commemorate that special Deckster moment of your life?

We knew that someone would tell her to take a picture of the deck covered with snow. Sheeple are so darn predictable that it's not even fun anymore.

Milo has only seventeen minutes to eat her vanilla ice cream. Can she multitask...eat, tweet and watch at the same time?

Tucker's Mom said...

Reading the influx of FB messages, it seems like Mady is once again in rare form during this episode. The rest of the girls to a lesser extent.
Sounds baaaaaaaaaaaad.
(see what I did there!)

reader said...

So basically Kate is using Milo. ignores her fordays, but since there are so few fans and Kate needs a live tweeter.....sick. Reminiscent of let's pretend to be happily married...it's all about tv for her.
And what about baiting fans with her daughter? Twisted.

@Reader and this is what we mean when Kate's show is on and responds to her tweets.She gets very insane and just throws the very last bit of dignity she has in her.She takes everything on show as proof and starts calling out haters and she digs even very deeper into Kate's butt.Just look at her tweets just tonight.

swimmermama said...

Hahahaha! I noticed TLC is retweeting TFW tonight. I guess the intern got in trouble for not retweeting her last week!! lol

I watched POTUS and the Republican response instead. Much more interesting and informative.

TLC stinks said...

Mady Tweet: 'Loved that store��' #Eaves @TLC #KatePlus8

Any locals...is that boutique expensive?

Sherry Baby said...

Snow on Kate's deck is one of the Seven Wonders Of The World. It's different from all other decks with snow because it is THE DECKSTER, not to be confused with The Terminator. It will make the front page of the Reading paper, and people will come from far and near to behold its glory.

Now, if she could just find an image of Jesus or the Virgin Mary in the coating of snow, she could charge an admission.

swimmermama said...

Love the way that TFW doesn't tweet Eaves. Guess she is to lazy to look up their Twitter name.

Kate is a twit said...

Looks like there will be only 7 episodes not 8. Someone tweeted that they showed next week is the season finale.

Christian Snyder ‏@csnyder5 · 2m2 minutes ago

Kate tweets:

Ok, another jab at Jon. Women use power tools whether there's a man around or not, Kate.

TLC stinks said...

Asked if Mady and Cara will share a car when they drive, here's Kate's response:

@GACfan22 yes I think so. They want to split the cost and the driving responsibilities. Smart girls! @TLC #KatePlus8

@@@@@@@@@

Been waiting for this to come up.

reader said...

When you see Mady (normally complaining) kissing up to her Mom, I think of the one episode from the early years, Kate and Jon in the kitchen, kidding around and Kate slaps Jon's face, almost as if she had no control. But then demanded he not be upset about it.

TLC stinks said...

Looks like from the tweets this was a shopping and modeling clothes extravaganza for mother and twins. And her dumb tweeties say she deserves to spurge, like she does not already.

I read on the Facebook page that Mady said I don't do anything unless it benefits me. Nice going there, Kate. She's just like you. BTW, Mady must have been in rare form because the comments are scathing.

Today's political roundup was so much more interesting than K+8. Biden and Hillary had a little spat this morning, Kim Davis secured anonymous tickets to the SOTU because no one wants to go on record anymore when it comes to her, and Obama nearly spit his coke when only one random person clapped at something he said. Lol, that tickled the professor's little funny bone.

Yeah Milo, those of us that work full time never have time to do anything with our kids. I guess all the memories that we've got of traveling around Europe while stationed Germany were just dreams. I guess the dresser that we refinished was just a figment of our imagination. I guess everything we did because we saved for it doesn't count as much as anything TFW grifts. I am an army wife, a mother AND I've always worked full time.

Wow, Milo. That's just ignorant.

I think it's more quality than quantity. Kids do fine when parents work as long as the parents spend quality time with them. It does a child no good to have a stay at home mom if they are emotionally absent. You might as well go to work.

They might just learn something about work ethic, too.

Stay at home parents many times say they actually end up not having nearly as much time as they thought. After all the chores are done around the house, shuttling around kids, doing errands, and all the other things working people either do over the lunch hour or pay someone to do, there isn't much time left over for the kids after all.

I haven't watched the show, but I fast forwarded to the preview for next week. Deanna and Kate are sitting together doing the couch interview and Kate says that "this is the first time anyone has ever sat in this chair with me".

Didn't Jamie also sit with her for a couch interview when they did the clubbing episode?

Maybe it was the first time anyone shared that particular couch with her, but it's not the first time anyone did the couch interview with her, since the show became Kate plus 8.

I just found a tweet that Kate tweeted about filming interviews with Jamie.

Kate Gosselin‏@Kateplusmy8 · 28 May 2011
Day was good! Did interviews for show(just me AND Jamie!)& swam and played. Made gift with kids 4 a friend Great weather. Good day!
GN all!

The clubbing episode aired a week after that tweet, on June 6, 2011.

TLC stinks said...

Milo has no job otherwise she would not stay something so stupid.

And it did not work out with the blind date because it was not supposed to...he was paid to film since Jeff Millionaire bailed. Jeff must be thinking he dodged a bullet, big time.

Alberta Girl said...

Milo is an ass.

I left my full time job 3 yrs ago to spend more time with my kids. It is a struggle to spend quality time with them as they get older and have more interests. When I was working full time, I had a cleaner, we ate out more, and I would forgo doing some things around the house, because I felt guilty about being at work.

Now that I am not working full time, I clean the house myself, we rarely go out, and I tend to stretch errands out, because I feel as if I have more time.

I make a concerted effort to spend time with each one typically while the other one is at his chosen activity, or at a friend's house.

Oh, and Milo - I don't have special, curated experiences planned by others to spend time with my kids.

Dumbass!

NJGal51 said...

I was just watching WW HL and the mazle of the day went to FLOTUS for looking great at her husband's last SOTU . Andy said that the dress she was wearing (named the designer but I didn't catch it) sold out online before the speech was over. He then said "however, this ensemble is still available" and they showed a picture of Kim Davis.

Kate is a twit said...

I guess Milo got a special dispensation from LOM to stay up past 11pm. She tweeted this at 11:19pm:

Fired Up 4 Kate ‏@MiloandJack · 24m24 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 @TLC Quit tweeting & go to bed! You need more than a few hrs of sleep! Take care of yourself! :)

She probably had to go to bed and she didn't want Kate to keep tweeting if she wasn't able to reply.

Exactly, and I know many people have said that because they are down to one income when they are stay at home they have to cut back on the time saving things they did as a working mom like grabbing take out on the way home and paying for cleaning.

It's hard to pay attention to your children when you are in front of the stove or cleaning. But if you don't do take out anymore or hire help, you're going to spend a great deal of time on those activities. Time not with your children.

Being a stay at home parent is a great thing but it is NOT a guarantee you will have more *quality* time for your children than any working parent does, Milo. There is nothing Kate does that is superior to a working period. Plus, she doesn't have to work because her children have paid her way, and that's just wrong. At least the working parents out there don't make their kids do their jobs for them.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

NJGal51 (#63), preach it, sister! And all the things you did were on your own dime. Most importantly, those memories are for you and your family alone to cherish.

I feel like I keep repeating this, but it bears repeating: if we are watching the special G family moments, then they are NOT special G family moments, because they are taking place in front of a TV crew!
And, no, they wouldn't be taking place if they weren't being filmed. TFW's track record of frugality (read: cheapassery) shows she doesn't pry open that wallet, nor her tiny little attention span, unless there's a big ol' carrot dangling at the end (and AuntieAnn, get your mind out of the gutter -- I'm talking about money and perks!).
There's only time and money to burn when Mama
needs a cosmetic procedure, or needs her monthly
spa getaway, or a fish-and-paper day in NYC to get her hair done.

Good grief, the fawning over this so-much-less-than-mediocre mother is positively nauseating.

You know I actually believe that. It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to find folks out there who aren't going to do a good vet. Google, people. Google. Put an intern on it, at bare minimum. I do like though how they put her in the back and didn't give her a chair. Yeah, stand up through the whole damn thing. Gets tiring after awhile don't it?!

Why was old Kimmy wearing three different outfits combined into one? As the great Robin Williams would say, look at this Dances With Wolves motif!

Nikki Haley did amazing! One of the best rebuttals I've ever heard.

All This Is That said...

Margaret Meade ‏@DonutsForCollin 34m34 minutes ago
@Sassccha @Kateplusmy8 @TLC Kate a single mom you see .."piecing N patchin' 8 kids to support. Unemployed but loves to shop. 4 cars, decks,.

Four cars? Did Kate get another car? When did that happen?

Milo has alluded to having a job, going to the office, visiting prospective clients. I guess, then, she doesn't have special times with her kids or a chance to make memories because she is not a stay at home mom.

Leslie said...

I am watching the second showing now and Kate's fillers are uneven. When she is sitting on the couch narrating her left side of her face (right side on screen) wrinkles in several places around mouth and total cheek area when she talks and especially when she laughs. But her other side as zero wrinkles and zero movement when talking or laughing. It is weird.

I didn't watch the show, but I think the program on "Prostrate Problems" would have been more exciting.

Did Mady really say that she doesn't do anything unless she benefits from it? Were the fans rolling on the floor in uproarious laughter over that one?

I read some of the FB comments, and wow, just wow. It must be very painful for Jon if he sees those remarks about his daughter.

The kids are learning their entitlement and attitude from Kate. I am afraid that it's too late to do anything about it now, and sadly, the younger ones may emulate Kate and their older siblings. As Lady Macbeth said, "What's done cannot be undone."

If someone told me to go to bed, I'd block that person so fast that her head would spin. Why is Milo so obsessed with Kate being in bed? Oh, wait...never mind.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Sherry Baby (#84), I think Kate Is A Twit called it:
Gladys doesn't want to miss any fun while she has to go to bed, so she tells a complete stranger to go to sleep. Pretty darn narcissistic, huh? And how the eff would she know if TFW needs sleep? She might've spent the entire day in bed after dropping the kids off at the bus stop in the morning -- if she even does that every day. And I think the "take care of yourself!" sign off was her version of a good night kiss. She passed "girl crush" about 500 tweets ago. She is in love.

Re: Kim Davis picture. She couldn't have dressed any more patriotic if she tried. Red white and blue striped wrap over what looks like a navy top with white stars.

I hope she was wearing very comfortable shoes. That's a long time to be standing in one square foot of space.

Although, things did not get off on such a great start. Hannah got another one of her stress headaches right before they went shopping so the little girl had to rest for a few in the backseat of the car until she was feeling better. And once she was, she ended up being another daughter that Kate couldn’t seem to please....

But everytime they see a water bottle, the kids ask for it. Then they wear their mom down with their joint pleading. So that’s what ended up happening. Kate said they could have water bottles and the kids all got upset because they wanted their own and the bottles only came in one color.
So again the younger kids gave their mother a headache. Though they at least were appreciative of her efforts while the older girls hadn’t liked being told that they hadn’t said thank yet. Therefore, they made it a whole big issue about how Kate could always thank herself.
Mady had actually been the one to say that and, like Kate says all the time, Mady comes by her outspokenness naturally. Kate herself is outspoken but she didn’t think she was as blunt as Mady is when she was her daughter’s age. But Kate does admit that she could be wrong.


And later on in the day, Kate decided that she hadn’t gotten her fill of torture and she came up with a nice family project. It seems she’s been wanting to refinish the family’s picnic table so she did some research into it and believed she could pretty much do it on her own if the kids were willing helping her out on the smaller things. So she went and got everything that a website said she needed and refinishing the table turned out to be a tough job.
First there came the sanding part and then using another tool to blow off all the sawdust which would have been easier if Kate hadn’t been terrified of operating it. And then that’s when the project finally drew her kids in. They all helped to repaint the table and they had enjoyed themselves.
So Kate got what she wanted in the end. She got to make a happy memory for her kids but following that one glorious moment – Kate had to take her teen daughters shopping for High School. Apparently it was going to be the first time in their lives when they didn’t have to wear uniforms so Kate knew they had to get outfits they could wear at school and on weekends but the girls were so indecisive that Kate soon began to look for things for herself.
And therefore all three went home with bags of their own.

Kate has some wisdom. "Being fair wastes money." In other words, not everyone can get everything they want, and you can't get something just because your sibling did. Kate's fans on Twitter certainly backed her up, or at least seemed to empathize with her multi-child plight.

Kate is certainly a hustler, and we know she worries about money, so her attitude toward fairness most likely is motivated by financial prudence, but it also might be a sound parenting strategy. After all, in the actual real world, (as opposed to the "real" one on TLC), things aren't fair. You don't get something just because the person beside you got it, things aren't balanced or allocated reasonably, even if you are a TV star, and probably the sooner these kids learn that, the less likely they are to become spoiled monsters. It is a little weird to hear Kate imply that she thinks fairness is overrated, considering all the flak she gets for being a type A personality, but her parenting skills are constantly being called into question, so maybe she's at least trying to appear less controlling. (Honestly, I don't know how someone who's been through such an ugly and public divorce and is raising eight kids could be anything but type A.) It's not the worst thing in the world to let your kids know that life isn't fair, even if your motivation does have to do with money. Do what you have to do, Kate. And while you're at it, can you teach me how to extreme coupon?

The person writing this article obviously does not understand Kate Gosselin, LOL.

Terri said...

I bit the bullet and watched the show last night. I had to laugh out loud when Kate said that Deanna came along on the shopping trip because she just "happened" to be there visiting for a few days. Not that it would have anything to do with the fact they were filming and Deanna is listed in the credits as the make-up artist for the show. She must think that we are as dumb as a box of rocks. Also, why would she even feel the need to explain her presence.

TLC stinks said...

http://radaronline.com/celebrity-news/kate-plus-8-season-4-kate-gosselin-kids-shopping/

In an unexpected power reversal, the sextuplets finally use their teamwork to boss around their mother, who seems surprisingly out of her element at the mall. Like daughter Leah on a boat, Kate looks like she’s on the verge of vomiting while shopping.

In confessional, Alexis discusses the phenomenon matter-of-factly, telling cameras, “We just use the power of six.”...

After navigating through brightly colored backpacks, shorts, and tiny sneakers with minimal fighting, Leah, Joel, Collin, Alexis, Aiden and Kate stop to have a snack. Over pretzels, the reality star mom tells a story of her shopping yester-years while everyone zones out, staring at their lemonade and waiting until it’s over.

For good measure, Kate fits in a home improvement activity into their excursion so viewers and the Gosselin children get a reminder of who’s boss...

In the big finale of this episode, Kate takes Mady and Cara shopping at a few funky boutiques. While the trip was meant for Mady and Cara, Kate — of course — steals the spotlight, trying on super trendy outfits and squealing things like “Oh yessss!” or “This might be a problem!”

She must have learned that kind of talk from old episodes of Sex and the City or Will and Grace....

Meanwhile, Mady rolls her eyes to the camera, “When did this turn into mommy shopping trip? It’s not a surprise everywhere she goes she gets stuff.”

Tucker's Mom said...

http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/kate-plus-8-recap-kate-gosselins-kids-mock-her-fashion-tips-w161542

Sounds riveting. Not.
The FB comments are scathing. Mady is being targeted and I don't think she needs "Mommy" to tell her people thinks she's mean.
They think she should be played by Chuckie in a made-for-tv-movie.
It also sounds like Kate finds Mady's behavior amusing and thoroughly excuses it.
If TLC films again, they need to rename the show Kate + 8 Kids In Therapy.

I was just watching WW HL and the mazle of the day went to FLOTUS for looking great at her husband's last SOTU . Andy said that the dress she was wearing (named the designer but I didn't catch it) sold out online before the speech was over. He then said "however, this ensemble is still available" and they showed a picture of Kim Davis.

The lovely Kim Davis did have a seat at the SOTU speech. Maybe folding chairs were brought in the place in the back of the room. It looks like she her hair is darker and she has gained as lot of weight. Her face still looks as hard as ever. Pictures on the Huffington Post.

Facebook comment
XXXXXX I've watched this show for years and watched these children grow up, but it's no longer enjoyable to me because of Kate's cynicism, negativity, and harsh, sarcastic tone of voice coupled with Mady's disrespectful and ungrateful attitude about EVERYTHING. Mady's demeanor is beyond that of being a rebellious teenager. Sadly, she seems to have some deep-seated anger issues, and makes no effort whatsoever to be kind, compliant, or respectful to ANYONE. As a medical professional and a parent of now adult children, I know firsthand that behavioral issues need urgent, consistent, and loving interventions. It's incredibly heartbreaking to watch children headed down the wrong road. It's also gut-wrenching to see how much of Mady's behavior (including eye rolling and snippy speech pattern) is beginning to to be modeled by the younger children. I would suggest an immediate reconsideration of your discipline strategy, as well as spending some more one on one time with each of the children, especially Mady, before you end up with a show renamed "It's too late, Kate." Praying for your family and success as a diligent parent.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

TLC stinks (#100), I have to admit that's a pretty
clever nickname from M -- Deanna/De-AUNT-a!

Great question about the real aunts and uncles.
How confusing for the kids. Mom pretends our father doesn't exist, yet we have "crew daddies." And Mom's makeup lady is kinda like family, but Mom
pays her. Does she really care about us, or is
she nice to us so she'll keep her job? Will she
be disappearing one of these days, like Beth and Aunt Jodi? Relationship trust issues will probably plague them in their adult lives.

***************
This is a snippet of an insightful FB comment by a medical pro and mom of now adult children.
Kate's kids are a runaway train. I have a feeling that Kate is checked out when the cameras aren't around. I really wonder if she just ignores everything, because we've seen this really clearly.
When the kids are fighting and hitting, Kate just shrugs her shoulders and let's them go all Lord Of The Flies.
It's alarming that a mother would be unperturbed by her children's maladjusted behavior, let alone showcase it on television.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

It also really concerns me that there could be a serious disincentive to help the children with their behavior and correct them. She's dumb but she's not stupid. She knows this conflict creates good TV. She damn well knows it. If she has eight quiet, obedient, respectful children, the episodes suddenly get a whole lot more boring. Imagine, a conflict of interest with your own children.

I took Deanna's comment to mean every tweet helps Kate's show. Sounds like they're worried about getting renewed and want to show there is buzz around them. It seems to me TLC is going to look strictly at the ratings. A million tweets aren't going to help anything if no one watches.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Tucker's Mom (#107), TFW showed the world how she parented when she let toddlers settle their own disputes. These children had no tools -- how could they have done that? Then her stupid hug-it-out and apologize and then it's like it never happened. So what did they learn? They could continue to hit, bite, screech, punch, kick, and grab from each other, as long as there was a phony apology at the end (which, by the way, I don't think she gave a rat's butt about when the cameras weren't there).

Those children needed guidance and discipline as well as love and kindness. Well, we know she had the discipline covered, but that's about it. She herded them downstairs like cattle for hours
to keep them out of her hair without so much as
a video monitor to let her know how they were.
Then she shoved them out of the way with 3-hour
naps. When exactly was she, oh, I don't know,
WITH them? Teaching them, enjoying them, reveling in them? So much neglect and poor treatment.
And now the Gosselins have come home to roost.

Having watched Mady on the show since the beginning, I believe what you see on the screen is Mady. I agree Kate allows the behavior because we, and others, talk about it. I'll even say Kate almost sounds proud her daughter is outspoken, just like mom.

TLC stinks (#115), it was telling last night that a request was made for M to tweet, and at first TFW said she was too busy, but then said, "Wait. What?"
and that M was done with her homework, and could tweet through TFW. That child doesn't owe America anything! Even if M was dying to do it, it's opening a can of worms. But TFW knows exactly what the draw is this season, doesn't she? So she was ready to serve the kid up on a golden platter to gain some extra attention.

Even letting M win the Chopped competition: I think TFW was trying to pitch M as a future cooking show star. And last night's Sound Of Music tweet? It all reeks of desperation.

I completely agree. Kate sees herself as outspoken vs. verbally abusive and insensitive, and her stubborn nature as "strength".
Mady is building a terrible reputation. If the goal is for Mady to become the next Omarosa Queen Reality TV Villain, then her resume is shaping up just fine.
In the real world of competitive college applications followed by competitive job markets, Mady is not helping her chances of success.

Yes. Homework and sleep took a back seat to the show. I don't think we even have to guess what Kate's plans are for her future. To hell with pursuing any other career.

That was just a throwaway line -- an 11-year-old's chronic stress headaches? Do any of them have

I am not surprised to hear that Hannah had another stress headache. Anyone that watched care to explain how Kate spinned that? Hannah has appeared this season distant and is not the chatterbox like her sisters. She seems to be tuning out like Cara.

Tucker's Mom said...

The K+8 FB page has a clip of Kate and the twins shopping in that boutique.
Mady is calling Kate, "Kate", "Katie", "Katie Irene", "Kit Kat"... and Kate just stood there and took the disrespect. I assume for the sake of filming, instead of stopping the cameras, warning Mady to knock it off or they'll go home. Oh, then a whole day of filming would be down the tubes.
What a clusterf*ck.
Mady seems to be pushing Kate way over the line, because she can. Kate needs Mady for ratings and knows the much needed controversy now revolves around her. So, Mady is the inmate running the asylum.
From what I've read, Mady's behavior got even worse.

When Mady calls her mother by her given name, Kate, Katie, etc., that is a serious sign of distancing/disrespect IMO.

I was thinking the same thing! I'm betting Jon's mom was thinking the same thing.

The poor lady must have cringed when Jon brought her through the door. I'm sure her reputation preceded her even back then. Now it's her granddaughter(s). She must weep when she watches the show, if she even watches it.

The collateral damage of Kate's greed is far-reaching.

It's sickening.

He must feel helpless.
I hope the last episode is just Kate, no kids and especially no Mady.
This storyline and strategy is only hurting Mady.

Kate is a twit said...

During the show last night, TLC ran a promo for next week's episode. The voice over said it was "the most anticipated event of the season" and showed some clips of Kate getting prepared for her date, and some clips of the date. It ended with the voice over saying "Make a date with the season finale of Kate".

I just checked my cable guide and there is a new episode on Jan. 26. It's called "Kate's Advice" and the description says "Kate sits down to watch clips from past seasons and gives advice to her younger self".

So TLC is promoting next week as the finale when there is another episode the following week. Guess they expect more viewers to turn in if they say it's the finale, and then they'll surprise the fans and say "we're not done yet!!".

Talk about false advertising.

What is so interesting about Kate going on a date?
The woman herself said she hates being asked about her love life, and now it's the event of the season?
What season is that? The season of watching paint dry? Or a tortoise race through binoculars?
The finale of M.A.S.H. was an event. Maybe Seinfeld. But Kate being primped and pampered?
Yawn.
I wonder if Kate will tweet with her stunt date like she did Deck Dude.

It could be, but if it is, it's backfiring, making Kate's horrible parenting look even worse because she just shrugs off Mady's behavior and lets her get away with bad-mouthing her.

@Kateplusmy8 @TLC @TheDeckDude Aww...could you look out & take a pic of #Deckster w/his first snow? Seriously...it's an event! #memory

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

Wow, snow on a deck in January is a photo worthy event?

&&&&&&&&&

It was a snow squall, Milo. A snow squall, not two feet of snow on a deck. It blew through faster than you could blink your eyes and left a coating on sidewalks and lawns. Nothing to get excited about; no reason for Kate to haul out her snow thrower, plowing her way down her driveway; no loss of trees; no getting snowed in; no blizzard leaving her without power for days.

Forecast is for rain this weekend. Do you want pictures of rain on the Deckster?

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Nothing to get excited about

&&&&


I know Milo's not from here but when you are born and bread in the Northeast it's pretty rare that snow is going to catch your eye. It's just a normal part of life, happenes every year. No big deal and rarely even photo worthy. That's like a southerner getting excited every time it breaks 90 degrees.

Blowing (#148), too bad TFW has been so emphatic about their dad not really being in their lives.
She could blame it all on him, like in the old days.

TLC stinks said...

First off, Kate will lie right out the gate that this is her first date. We saw her with Jeff Millionaire at dinner and the casino, but that was business (not). She has been alone with Steve on trips multitude of times but that was business (not). I think TLC is trying too hard with the buildup. People know she's been around the block since the divorce.

PA Dutch Mom said...

We'll see if Kate pouts about a'piecin and a'patchin.
I think that ship sailed a long time ago, or circa a year which included 2 enormously luxurious vacations, a deck, 3, count 'em, 3 hair and makeup artists and an all-expense paid date in NYC complete with stunt suitor, helicopter ride and a limo that would make Theresa Guidice jealous.

&&&&&&&

They should have just gone to the Peanut Bar for the 1/2 sandwich and cup of soup special with a pitcher of Chesterfield ale, followed by "Buy one, get one free" bowing at the local alley. At least fans could relate to that!

We could have watched her freak out at the peanut shells on the floor, lamenting over her OCD, and then making her date pick them up.

MikeB said...

The best advise the 40 year old Kate could go back and give to her younger self is to not focus on fame and instead focus on her family and her nursing career.

At a minimum she should watch the vow renewal ceremony and tell her younger self to take the vows seriously and not just be for the TV show. They should have walked away from the series after that show. Everything from that point forward just chronicled the destruction of the family for the entertainment of national TV.

Whether she realizes it or not the TLC series has left a long trail of hurt feelings, tattered relationships, developmental issues (both educational and emotional), the alienation of the kids' father, and a totally broken family. The only beneficiaries of Kate's greed are Kate herself and TLC.

If she doesn't see that now, maybe she should wait another decade when all the kids are out on their own and see what their feelings are. I think she will be surprised how damaging her lifestyle was on the kids.

Well said, Mike. It's also left the kids with fame they might not be able to shake very easily, and if they are lucky, some money to collect as adults.

But all or some of the kids may look at that small, or if they are lucky medium pile of money one day and find themselves thinking it really wasn't worth it at all just for this.

I guess good for Kate for getting TLC to whisk her off to NYC to blow her nose.
Sure, there will be sheep who will praise Kate for "getting back out there" and tell her how much she deserves it, but it's so out of touch that most will reject the notion as ridiculous.

So true. The amount of manure that will be in Kate's "retrospective" is going to be staggering.
For sure, she will make is sound like the best thing to happen to "the 9 of them" was getting Jon out of her life and out of her kids' lives to the extent she's been capable of.

MikeB said...

Ratings are out. 1.289 million viewers and a 0.40 share compared to 1.186 million and a 0.35 share last week. Those are the highest numbers of the season so far.

The Little Couple managed 1.730 million and a 0.46 share. It is pretty obvious that they are providing a strong lead-in that Kate is able to capitalize on. When Kate was in the 9:00 slot she averaged less than a million each week.

Next week’s ratings will be interesting. I look for TLC to promote the dating episode very heavily on their sister channels like Velocity. I’m sure she is going to be on pins and needles with anticipation the ratings will go up. If she can break 2 million next week it will be a sure bet TLC will order more episodes revolving around her dating. Less than 1.5 million and I think she will be stuck doing just the limited number of specials like she has the past couple of years.

TLC stinks said...

Interesting that Kate will be commenting on her younger self for that last show. She has been on this line that she is the NEW, CALMER Kate this whole season. Reinvention is not going to work. Gaslighting 101. Most people do not repeat their mistakes, but I don't think she believes she has not done anything wrong other than not yelling as much. I believe it's about damage control because Jon may finally have a case to wring custody of some of the kids from her.

Instead of doing a show on reinvention, she should privately reach out to all that she has shunned over the years, then I would believe she has changed.

Anne Taylor. White House Black Market. Aldo shoes. That designer in Florida.
Just to name a few.
The kids have had clothes given to them for YEARS. Expensive clothing.
All worn on episodes and tv appearances.
Hey, fans, wouldn't it be great to have Anne Taylor (and Gymboree) on speed dial to refill your gift card whenever you wanted?

This reminds me of a story told by my aunt when she was teaching in Central Florida years ago. A freak line of snow showers went through and school was dismissed early, not because of the road conditions (there was nothing sticking to the roads), but most of the kids had never seen snow. They let them go home early so they could pick the flakes off the grass in an attempt to make tiny snowballs!

Milo tweeted that Kate is dating and is #happy. How does she know this? Has Kate confided in her during their private communications? I would think that if it's not true, Kate would go on record with "lies, all lies." She has done this before. I really think that Kate has red flags about Milo and might actually be somewhat afraid of her and what she could do if Kate blocked her or refuted any of the "facts" that Milo tweets. Therefore, Kate treats her with those proverbial kid gloves.

Sorry, kids. looks like you're going to have to organize of "power of 6" strike-maybe Shawshank your way off the compound-in order to get off tv.

I remember that Gymboree kissed her goodbye when she had demanded more and more. They had enough and cut her off. It was reported by a local whose friend was a store manager, so I would believe that there is some validity to the story.

Tucker's Mom, I think these kids COULD have been saved had TLC not started filming them again after the dry spell. Now it's too late and I believe most of them enjoy the perks of filming even more now that they are at an age to understand it all. I think even Jon knows it's futile to try to do anything about it.

It's sad to say, but I believe America will be saddled with Kate and her Eight for a good while longer.

I say this surge in social media activity is related in large part to how Mady is portrayed on the show. In fact, I've no doubt.
Her insolent behavior has become a leitmotif on the show, steadily escalating through this season's episodes.
To a lesser extent, how one of the boys appears to have changed in an upsetting way.
There seems to be a galvanization happening like never before.
Kudos Kate and TLC.

Yep. I think you are right. You can stick the fork in her, but at the rate she is going, an Oneida salad fork isn't going to make any difference. You'll have to use a commercial meat fork and even then, she will still be medium rare on that grill for months to come. Not done.

I don't blame Jon for the state of things now. Not at all.
I think many people have not spoken out, or waited a long time to say anything, is because of the kids.
Beth Carson said as much when she explained why she wanted to speak out about her broken relationship with Kate and the fact that Kate tried her best to erase any trace of her from the book she wrote.
Beth said that she kept her silence for so long because of the kids (that she loved and took such good care of).
Look and anyone who has come out and told the truth- Jodi and Kevin-for a prime example.
Kate and TLC went after them with the heat of a thousand suns, to scorch them into dust.
If anyone attempt to derail Kate's money train, she goes for the jugular.

I didn't see the show but, from the clips I've seen and the comments about Hannah having "another one of her stress headaches", coupled with Mady's bad behavior (and without even getting into Collin's problem, whatever that might be) it seems to me that now might be a good time for Jon to again bring to the authorities' attention the damage that filming continues to do to these children.

Eight is More Than Enough said...

Even if TLC and Kate had managed to bribe Jon &/or fully remove his soul the show would still be undergoing a change the past year. Producers are probably praying to their gods that more of the kids become lippy and that everything just holds on until they have sextuplet teenagers to write storylines for.

Carole said...

Milo tweeted that Kate is dating and is #happy. How does she know this? Has Kate confided in her during their private communications? I would think that if it's not true, Kate would go on record with "lies, all lies."

******

I don't think Milo knows any more about TFW life than we do. I've never believed they communicate behind the scenes. TFW needs for the mystery to remain unsolved, for the fans to be left wondering whether she's dating or not, and to want to tune in to see for themselves what she's doing - as if what was filmed was spontaneous and natural.

IMO, TFW isn't saying anything to Milo because she's been a powerful promoter for her, she runs interference for her on twitter, she's backed TFW to the point of outright lying for her trying to make her look good. I think if TFW said something she'd be drawing negative attention to herself for getting into it w/her long time #1 big fan. So, no, I don't think TFW will ever say anything to Milo (unless what she said was damaging to her 'brand'). They're stuck with each other. Ha, and they so richly deserve each other!
