Jacob Roloff: "Noticing how the agenda of the crew doesn't work well with the health & happiness of our family is what made me decide quite a while ago that I would not be a part of it as soon as I was able."

Jacob Roloff of Litte People, Big World, one of TLC's longest running reality shows, is all grown up now and has been speaking out. Jacob has refused to film with the family for over a year now.

His latest statement addresses fans who keep demanding that he appear on the show again.

Jacob had this to say:

jacobroloff45I get comments on here all the time about how people 'miss me on the show' or telling me I should 'do a few more episodes' with the family; I'm posting this to say that that will never happen. For the sake of 'the episode' and ratings I've seen a lot of STORYLINES drawn up (loosely) about our lives, and when I was standing here, behind the scenes and watching it from an outside perspective I just couldn't stop laughing. Laughing at how hard the producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points, and at how ridiculous the talking points are. To misquote Chomsky, "the primary objective of any system is to preserve the integrity of that system", meaning, the primary objective I have felt and observed over the years of the 'crew' is to preserve their job and preserve the ratings, which is up to you to be right or wrong. That's not to say they are all soulless corporate shills or something, there are and have been good people involved but that doesn't negate the fact that they do have their own personal agenda. For me, noticing how the agenda of the crew doesn't work well with the health & happiness of our family is what made me decide quite a while ago that I would not be a part of it as soon as I was able.

.

All in all I appreciate people wanting me to 'be with the family' for a few more episodes, but the family that is filmed is not my family. They are the Roloff Characters and I have scarcely anything in common with them, nor do I want to be a character myself. As soon as the cameras drop however, its almost like they never played the part. 20 minutes after this picture was taken we all, plus friends, had a campfire late into the night. So, I am with my family and I love them I'm just here to say you'll never see that from me on TV again.

Thanks, Admin!

Thanks, Admin.
Again, I've never watched the show (a whole show-seen pieces and parts here and there) but know who the Roloffs are.
What an extraordinary thing to grow up being filmed and have your life put out there for public consumption, yet having such great poise as to negotiate life without the cameras and still maintain your relationship with family.
I also appreciate the courage to be an undisputed source which echos what most others are too afraid to tell, or incentivised not to tell: that there's nothing real about reality tv.
As Ron Howard said, (paraphrasing) the camera alters how people behave.

I think Asten Martin is one of those celebrity followers. A whack job. Steve may need to tackle him, if he really shows.

God bless you, Jacob! A lot of people are really proud of you for speaking out.

Great new thread, admin!

It's Austin Martin. Aston Martin is a car!; He really is into older women; he had a mad crush on Kirstie Alley and her "rack." Odd fellow.

Mel said...

I remember TFW saying something about being camera "unaware".

BS. How can you be unaware when they tell you not to start 'acting' until the scene is just right?
Telling you where to stand, what to say? You're not just living your life, you're waiting for "Lights, Camera, Action!" before saying/doing anything.

Remember on CA how everyone else was looking at whoever was speaking, but there was TFW sneaking peeks at the camera to see if it was on her? Really camera unaware that one. Not.

Mel said...

That picture above looks like men stalkers with cameras coming out of the woods. You'd think that might be slightly unnerving.

There are at least 5 camera people there, plus two big flood lights. Yeah, I'd really be unaware of the camera and just doing what I'd normally do.

Or not.

Roloff Characters. He got that exactly right.

Just like it's the Gosselin Characters. Oh wait. I forgot. It's the Van Gosselin Family Singers.

Katie's Mom said...

I think Jer and Auj, gawd, 2 of the most pretentious, shallow, inauthentic people I have ever seen, love the cameras. Especially the money. Their oh so full of themselves website about marriage is ridiculous. These 2 will have a baby for the sake of episodes. I cringe when I hear either of them speak.

Zach has gotten more on board with filming too. And while I think he has become more confident with himself as a result of finding a nice wife, she isn't camera shy either.

Jake's picture is still part of the opening and he conveniently left out if he still gets any money for the show.

I think he was in Hawaii for the family trip but not being filmed, so he is still "profiting" for the sake of filming. Matt said several times how great it was to have his entire family there. Maybe Molly was there as well.

I think the Roloff's are typical greedy reality tv people. I don't trust them or the story lines.

Katie's Mom said...

The Gardners, from Rattled who never fail to vlog their quads daily, frequently video them in the tub. Can you imagine filming your children every single day for youtube likes and subscribers. The mom says everyday, "look at the cute outfits" or some other shallow shit. She has reminded evey day of July that her birthday is this month. They have now started filming the girls opening presents from fans. Her makeup has gotten hideous and every vlog is a setup on its own. What an existence.

GollyGee said...

When Jacob talked to that little boy, Jack who is on the reality tv show, the Little People, you could tell by Jack's answers and his demeanor that he was very aware if the intrusion of the cameras, the crew, the invasion of privacy.

That poor kid and his sisters. The mother is another Kate.

________________________________________________________

What do you mean? His parents SOLD his childhood to the public. If his "likeness" or photos of him were sold by his parents to the show and TLC still has the rights to use his photos in the credits, etc he SHOULD get paid for that, if he is. Maybe he's not.

And if he's getting payments for his appearance in past episodes he SHOULD be. He wasn't given a choice as a child. Now he has a choice. He chooses not to film. However, it seems he still wants to get together with his family if they go to Hawaii to film a family get-together. He just chooses not to share his part in it with the public. Why is he being criticized for that?

Maybe he paid his own way to Hawaii. Maybe his family did. Maybe TLC did pay because it was part of the agreement for a FAMILY reunion.

I don't think Jacob should be criticized for accepting payment from TLC (IF he is) for his childhood that was taken from him, from a normal family life that his parents and TLC took from him. He is owed at least that much, if not more.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Admin, thank you for this new topic.

I respect Jacob's choice to not make TLC out to be just some evil corporation. His comments were measured, and I find that admirable from someone of his age. I'm pleased that he seems to have turned a corner from his recent angry-young-pothead phase, and is becoming an intelligent, articulate young man. I wish him well.

foxy said...

I think Zac's wife is getting totally on board with the cameras and loving every minute of it. Jer and Auj are disgusting. The only ones I can stand are Molly and Jacob. Amy is still rude and nasty to Matt and I think that is going on in the unscripted part of the life. You don't tell someone to shove it up their arse so freely as she did especially with a house full of guests.

Jeanne said...

Someone asked on the last page about kids contracts and working when they're sick. In the first Robert Hoffman book, he printed whole contracts and highlighted phrases. I don't remember the exact wording but it was something about Jon and Kate being required to produce all the kids on every day of filming. I think there was a penalty for them if they didn't. No sick time or don't want to film time. They signed away their lives.

As far as I can tell, in most of reality tv, the parents sign contracts for the whole family. The kids don't get their own contracts because they're not "actors". Depending on state law, the kids may or may not get any income. It could all go to the parents. I wonder about the Roloffs and if Jacob got paid anything.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Doesn't it just boggle the mind that people sit back and eat their popcorn, watching their kids, for their own entertainment? And send them money and gifts!?

I think I'm correct in recalling that Steve + wife and maybe even his kids went to Hawaii for the "we'll be married forever" episodes.
What the heck, right? What's another room at a 5-star resort in paradise?
If the talent are still making major scratch for the network, there are far more perks than Jacob tagging along.

Tucker's Mom said...

It's quite insightful for Jacob to understand that his ire should not be directed at the crew, whom he fully understands were NEVER there for his enrichment and benefit. They are there because it's their job.
To be fair, I bet the G kids realized very early on that the crew are much like dogs. They regard you the same if you are grumpy or happy, clean or stinky, talkative or silent. They don't punish you and always will try to draw you out.

Tucker's Mom said...

Ouch! But, I'm sure Amy, like Kate, knows darn well what the producers are looking for, and what makes for good tv. Especially highlight (or lowlight) reels and episode teasers.

foxy said...

TLC did not put Jacob in a very good light on his last appearances on the show. They made him look like a spoiled brat, pothead, quit school, and no direction in life. I am glad he is speaking out and is so articulate with saying what is on his mind. It seems he was really close tp that man named Mike on the show. Mike passed away and he was very upset about it. If more of these child actors spoke out, and that is what they are, it would make it so much easier on the rest of the kids who don't want to be filmed. Ozzie and Sharon never forced their oldest daughter Aimee to be on their show and I give them a lot of respect for that.

Tucker's 19.....Amy told Matt to shove it when they were filming the Thanksgiving dinner. I was stunned.

Sounds very like what they did to Kate right before they cancelled her. They're always going to have the last word.

Lanc Native said...

Well she excited that the Austinmartin is going to Chicago or so it seems by the number of !!!!!!!! That she used in her tweet. I wonder what he does for work because he always seems to be traveling somewhere. He either comes from money or he's got a really good paying job.

(((((((((((


I think that Austin and Emily are cut from the same cloth. I don't know if he graduated from college yet, but he flits around following celebrities and goes on various trips, taking pictures of expensive purchases. I really doubt that he has a job, but most likely lives on his parents' money. He also lusts after Leann Rimes.

Wait until he sees the objection of his affection up close and personal. I hope she has a really good make-up person there to pile on the spackle!

Lanc Native said...

It looks like old Gladys has her hands full these days, with pestering about IG verification and wanting photos of the new dogs and daily reports on their activities. At least it probably keeps her out of her family's hair for the time being. Right, Milo?

Dmasy said...

Admin, thank you for sharing Jacob's comments. He spoke well and clearly. Someday, the Gosselin children will be old enough to represent themselves also.

Lanc Native (#23), I assume that TFW's BFF Deanna will be tagging along on the trip to do makeup, and so that TFW won't be stuck looking after the twins if she and Steve want to grab dinner alone.

What is he supposed to do, not take part in family events? He is a young man who loves his family dearly and still wants to be with them. He shouldn't have to give that up because he objects to filming.

He does make a point. The crew is there to do their jobs and follow the labor laws, not take some moral stance on filming children. That goes much, much higher. To really, executives.

I think of all the kids he struggled the most having little people parents and to add to that not liking the public life. Just by virtue of having little people parents it calls a lot of attention to yourself and we know he is one who doesn't like that when the other children seem to enjoy it. It's like any child who doesn't like attention but by virtue of his parents or family, gets it. That can be hard.

Mike was a person of average height and father figure. His untimely death surely hit Jacob the hardest, that was clear.

It is BS. Jacob's giving us insight into a typical crew from TLC, and it involves cameras, tripods, boom mics, several crew, and in the case of night shots, elaborate lighting. It's a real set, not some guy with a handheld who blends into the bushes. It's absurd to say you're just living your life unaware of all that.

Or as the Church Ladies say, "the booshes!"

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Jacob really touched on well for someone so young this idea that what you see on TV is not his family. So when fans say they want him to be with the family, he's like I *AM* with my family all the time, you (the fans) are not understanding what you see on tv is not "my family." And that bothers him in particular when it might not necessarily bother the other kids.

After all this time the creepy fans still don't understand you're seeing something very manufactured and that there's this whole other life happening without cameras we never see.

I would think that two 15-year-olds could stay in a hotel room without being chaperoned if Kate and Stevie want to share some um...quality time together!

Notice how delicately I phrased that?

I don't understand why Milo is so excited and was so surprised by the arrival of Kate's new puppies. With all of their communicating, and since she knows everything there is to know about Kate, wouldn't Kate have informed her when these pups were conceived?

*************************************
What does his stature have to with anything?

$$

Read my post. I was explaining how Jacob needed an average height role model. He was in a family of little people and needed someone, an adult, more like him to relate to just like Zack needs little people role models. The average height kids have even talked about sometimes feeling left out because of their average height. Same phenomenon happens to hearing children in deaf families. Kids always do better when they have a solid role model they can really relate to. An average height adult, a hearing adult, whatever the situation. I think that's a big reason Mike's death hit him so hard.

That's what I don't get. Many of Kate's fans don't appear to be really all that stupid, and yet they can't get it through their heads that this reality is manufactured. Why they are so hung up on watching these kids paraded around on display is beyond me.

Apparently idiot enough not to realize why someone would point out an average size child felt close to his average sized mentor.

The trolls are very angry today, the last of the Bullyville court actions just got flushed down the toilet. He's now 0 for 3, and his long-time lawyer just bailed on him. All's well that ends well.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


Perhaps you didn't notice, but there are two other average size children in that family. Shouldn't Mike have been their mentor too since apparently you think being of similar height is of such paramount importance.


&&&&

I did notice.

I have watched this show since day one and am fond of this family flaws and obnoxiousness and all. I also stated that Jacob seemed to have the hardest time having little people parents, which apparently you didn't notice. I think we're beginning to understand that struggle so much better now. It's not them being little in and of itself that was wearing on Jacob. I think it's the attention that comes from being little that bothers Jacob. He's made it clear now, he doesn't like the attention, whether it's filming or attention in real life. He doesn't get strength from that like the other children do. That is perfectly normal. I would hate it too.

Jeremy and Zack are twins and much older than him, and Molly is the only girl, very bright and the golden child. The three of them and the spouses all love to film. That leaves Jacob, who struggled with school and behavior and valued privacy more than the three other children, the odd one out.

You must be a Kate fan. Children are individuals, not units. In situations where parents are "different" and some or all of the children are not different, some children deal with this just fine, others struggle. Some children may crave a mentor who is more like them, as I believe Jake did, others may not need this. It is undisputed Jake took Mike's death the hardest, everyone said so, so there really is no argument here about his closeness to the man. I am allowed to draw reasonable conclusions why he gravitated to him so much based on a decade of statements from Jacob himself, and his family about him. I have no idea why this would irritate anyone.

Jane said...

Serendipity, I believe that suit was thrown out by the court quite a long time ago. McGibney and Bullyville have hired several attorneys over the years and I've lost track of which one handled which suit. There's lots of information at viaviewfiles.net but it takes digging! Also, I think there were five suits filed by McGibney and he's lost all five. There was some talk of CJ being involved as she allegedly sent false information to authorities.

Maybe poor Mak is doing "wool sucking" to relieve some anxiety in his life. Living in that house would be stressful especially if there are too many strangers (read that as crew daddies) around with large scary equipment. Wool sucking could also be caused if the puppies are taken from their mom too soon. It's probably something that TFW might want to mention to her vet. Just my humble opinion but my sister had a dog who did this and got sick from residue from the dryer sheets.

That one particular troll has a chronic anger issue and it shows in every post. It must be horrible to walk around with such an attitude that you have to pick at people and be so rude and condescending. Life's too short. Talk a walk outside, breathe, and enjoy! I'm listening to one of my favorite song-writers singing "What A Wonderful World."

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day and the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people goin' by
I see friends shakin' hands
Sayin', "How do you do?"
They're really sayin'
"I love you"

That whole lawsuit thing was so confusing. I thought the lawsuit filed in Texas was the same as the one filed in San Jose, Calif.

And I could never understand why Retzlaff and Rauhauser were named in a lawsuit against the Jane Does which was supposedly a lawsuit about people maligning Kate Gosselin, wasn't it? How were Retzlaff and Rauhauser involved in that?

I tried to read through some of what's on the Viaview site but, with everyone calling everyone else a pedophile, I got bored....too much minutia and bluster to try and wade through.

I occasionally read some of the tweets from some of McGibney's sanctimonious supporters. I wonder how they're spinning total defeat. They were a nasty lot.

Usually civil suits are not born by taxpayers. BV will have to pay all the expenses of the suit via court fees and so forth. If running the air conditioning in courthouses and paying for copies of filings is how he wishes to spend his money, have at it.

----------
What about all the legitimate cases not being seen or heard whilst the court is entertaining endless motions containing nonsense? The costs in this regard are incalculable, IMO. And even though BV's in it for at least $450K (for just one case) at this point, no one's ever going to see that money---not the court, not defendants' counsel, and not the winning parties. So what was it all for?

All I know is McGibney is a scammer and a blackmailer. Looks like he is bankrupt from losing the lawsuits plus the huge amount of owed back taxes. Sounds like just the person Kate would hitch her wagon to.

I think Austin comes from upper middle class. He may still be a college student, not sure if he's worked at all.

On another not, I can't for wait for CJ for try and go back to her "teaching" career. One google search of her name and she won't be able to pick up trash.

Layla said...

My understanding of the Bullyville stuff is: CJ got the BV guy (McGibney) involved in the fights on Kate's Twitter. He also bought another anti-Gosselin site and said he was going to expose everyone who said anything negative about Kate. Meanwhile, McGibney has another website called Cheaterville where people can post nasty pictures and stories about their exes. The people whose stuff gets posted have to pay to get their info removed. So..someone posted pictures on there of the daughter of a guy names Retzlaff. Retzlaff found out and demanded that McGibney remove them, but refused to pay for removal. So McGibney decided that Retzlaff was in some conspiracy with all the Kate haters and also some guy named Neal. McGibney filed a defamation suit in Texas against Retzlaff, Neal, and 5 Jane Does (unnamed Kate haters). He called it his "St Valentines Day Massacre" since it was filed in February. He said they were all in a vast criminal conspiracy to destroy his company. Then he nonsuited, saying he was going to re-file as a Federal suit. But Neal filed SLAPP charges before it was non-suited.

McGibney refiled against Retzlaff in two different courts in California. He managed to get a temporary restraining order against Retzlaff in one of those cases. But the judge was removed from that one because he showed bias. So, McGibney lost the SLAPP suit in Texas and has huge sanctions to pay, one of his cases in CA was dismissed a long time ago, and just a few days ago the second case in CA was dismissed. I have heard about two other cases, but I don't know what they are all about.

Did I get that right? I was reading there last night, trying to figure out what all of it was about. It's confusing, and there are a lot of insults thrown around on both sides, but I think that's the most simple explanation of it all.

Actually BV's lawsuit did name two of the "haters" plus 5 Jane Does.

BV's really got a thing about conspiracies. I think he also convinced Kate there was a conspiracy by the "haters" and Jon and RH. Hence that ridiculous lawsuit of hers that went nowhere.


What a saga--over 2 years!

Here's a good article about it:

My understanding of the Bullyville stuff is: CJ got the BV guy (McGibney) involved in the fights on Kate's Twitter.

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

So it all can be traced back to CJ? Wouldn't you know it? I think I'd stay away from the CJ Curse!

Layla said...

I think the only thing linking the Kate haters with Retzlaff and Neal was the fact that they all traded insults with McGibney (Bullyville) on Twitter, so McGibney claimed that all the non-fans were in a big conspiracy with Retzlaff and Neal to destroy his business. Despite the fact that none of these people seem to know each other. Unfortunately for McGibney, none of the courts agreed with him.

Layla said...

You're right, he did name a few "haters", plus 5 Jane Does and Retzlaff and Neal. He was demanding a million dollars from each of these people in his initial lawsuit. He thought they would be too intimidated by him to fight back and he'd win by default. Boy, was he ever wrong!

Deliverence said...

Anyone who didn't like the Kate "haters" loved BV.

Of course, anyone who didn't like BV was loved by the "haters."

BV and the whole saga attracted some real sleazeballs, many who had nothing to do with Kate, probably didn't even know who she is.

@Layla The reason mcgibney went after the Kate critics keeps changing on mcgibney's side.Thats one of the reason i take anything the Kate fans say with a grain of salt.1st the fans say he went after the critics because one of them was "hacking"into their accounts and discovered stuff about their personal life.Then they claimed he went after them because they were threatening to murder and rape Kate.Another reason he claims to go after them was because they supported Thomas retzlaff.Now one of the newer ones,one of his supporters is saying is that he went after them because they found out who he was and started stalking both him and his family before any of the Kate critics even knew who he was.If the Kate fans who support BV can't make up their minds as for the reason he went after these women then why should we believe anything else they say?

Deliverence said...

Is there real evidence that CJ was behind this whole mess? Or is it speculation that became a rural legend? I certainly wouldn't put it past her. Based on her rants, i.e., that Thanksgiving Day meltdown a few years back, she seems capable of some weird-ass stuff.

There's an interesting blog that discusses CJ and her "work"
https://cjwhodunit.wordpress.com

Also, I thought I saw somewhere that she had sent a letter to a judge that allegedly defamed the defendant in the suit and gave erroneous information that caused a young man to lose a job and LE is now investigating. It's hard to keep up with the twists and turns so if I have this wrong hopefully someone will enlighten us.

CJ also appeared to be friends with some creepy Tweet guy named Captain/Captein Obvious something like that. He was a staunch BV supporter and flew jet fighter planes and was super macho, in some sort of LE capacity, had heaps of money. LOL Weird stuff.

The anti-Kate blog was sold to BV by its admin, Lisa McKnight. She claimed that BV had presented her with a legal order to turn over all the info on her posters. But Lisa was lying and BV used the information to post personal information about the posters on his website.

The information is still on BV except for Lisa's, which is very interesting. Supposedly she used the money to fund her candle business. She sells candles with jewelry in them.

The comments on her blog were very nasty. They viciously attacked all the fans as well as TFW. I think most of the nastiest twitter people are probably from that blog.

It's funny how they keep coming up with new stories about how McGibney was some poor victim of a bunch of evil Kate haters. Problem is, they can't come up with one that makes sense. Nobody attacked this guy. Nobody knew who he was until he started attacking people who didn't like Kate. Then, when they refused to sit back and let him bully them, he ran to court and tried to sue them. He was just so determined to pummel them into submission, and it backfired. Now he has lost in court over and over, reportedly is hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, his business is kaput, and he threw it all away over…what? A few people who wouldn't bend to his will? Imagine being so vindictive that you destroy your life and your children's' future over some grudge. He needs help.

My guess is that she threw a freakin hissy fit, threatened the dog with the stick she used to hit her potty training toddlers with, and screamed at Steve to harass the TLC gods to hurry up and air the shows they have filmed so she can get rid of those dirty, stinky puppies or they will be crated until they do!!!

And as for rewriting the dog history, don't be surprised if she is aided and abetted by TLC cutting out all that bad-dog-momma stuff from the Shoka/Nala days. With all they've cut out of past episodes in order to support her myriad "make-overs," I'm sure she's looking like Sybil to anyone who bothers to watch them in order from the beginning.

And btw, the world isn't looking that wonderful to the families of several Dallas cops and two black men gunned down senselessly. For all the criticism of Kate for not tweeting about Orlando, etc., this place sure has gone radio silent on the current issues of the day.

&&&&

Many people here have said, and shown, that they are very engaged and interested in current events. I'm obsessed, myself. I probably need to step away from all the news I read and watch. I couldn't be more engaged in recent events. I don't see any evidence Kate is like that whatsoever.

The problem is numerous posters here have said they don't enjoy talking about such things here because it gets too political. I don't recommend talking about shootings too much here since it quickly leads to gun control discussions which really is quite political and people get offended.

Sometimes we discuss less controversial current topics and that usually goes well, but discussing mass shootings really has no business on a blog about reality shows. It serves no purpose other than to alienate otherwise reasonable people.

If you would like to discuss it I'll happily direct you to some great places around the web that are better suited. But this is not a public celebrity twitter account where an acknowledgement of something this tragic is the order of the day and looks self-absorbed if you don't. That doesn't really make sense on a long, and often random, blog thread that isn't really watched by anyone but the regular posters and some lurkers. There is no purpose to me or anyone else posting here "RIP, blue lives matter" or something like that, although certainly people are welcome to. FB would even be better suited for such comments rather than this thread. Anyway, to try to suggest the loose separation of such things from this blog means people can't criticize Kate for not mentioning major events on her timeline doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Assuming you're a lurker, you'd know why and you'd know that it's been a conscious decision based on many posters being disillusioned with talk of politics etc.
It has absolutely nothing to do with being uninformed or disengaged.

That said, suffice to say that recent events have been horrific and traumatizing.

I have to admit I woke up this morning and really needed an emotional break. I suppose you could criticize that and say well all the victims and families don't get a break, but there's nothing I can do about it--it adds little to no value for average Americans to keep studying the minutiae of all this.

Aside from the obvious horrors, and without opening the door on more controversial issues, the way they killed the perp with a robot was innovative. That could be a new way to handle terrible crimes without risking further blue lives, or lives in general. If we could target mass shooters with robots or even drones, or even lesser crimes, and take them out (or detain them) with robots, we could save lives. The hours of tactical maneuvering that it sometimes takes to take these guys down results in more deaths. Although lately, the focus has been on speeding up that part of the sting, and it's getting better. Orlando though was way too long.

Think about it, if a robot could arrest someone, we wouldn't have to worry that the criminal might shoot and shoot them first (and risk getting it wrong or speculation they got it wrong). This could be a whole new door on fighting crime.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

This is not her first go around with puppies. It's amateur hour over there if her puppy is getting into things like sandals and serving plates.

These are REALLY little puppies. You have to puppy proof and be vigilant. True early stage puppy care really does involve watching them all the time or crating them when you have to shower or sleep. If you're not exhausted the first couple months of puppyhood you're probably not doing it right. I don't believe for one second she's making any effort to be a responsible puppy owner.

Jeanne said...

Having puppies can be like having little children. You puppy-proof, you watch them, you spend a lot of time taking care of them. Kate learned nothing from having children or from having the first puppies. To me that's evidence she never really did do the dirty work of raising kids. Jon did it or the volunteers or the nannies. In between, Kate punished them for acting like toddlers. She sent the dogs away rather than do the work. Now a puppy ate her sandal. Big surprise. Unless she's making up a Twittersode.

Absolutely! I hope, but highly doubt, that Kate learned from her other young dogs eating things when unsupervised, but again, I doubt it.
Kate's reaction to Nala's almost dying from ingesting something dangerous was disturbing. It just pissed her off to have to spend $$ for emergency surgery to save the dog's life.
Really?
There was no being upset with herself because it happened, or being grateful that she could be saved.
It makes me especially angry knowing how much money they had at the time, while still sticking to the story about how tough they have it financially, and still collecting "love offerings".
I don't know-I just don't believe Kate's gone from someone who couldn't care less about animals and abused her dogs, to this huge dog lover who has the required empathy, compassion and willingness to sacrifice for them.

Uh, that shouldn't even be part of the equation. How massively magnanimous of Kate to not have Nanook receive her wrath for just being a puppy. It's like Kate's pointing out how benevolent she is.
What a sane adult who really loves and cares about baby dogs would say is, 'OMG, thank God she's OK. I have to be more careful so I don't put my puppy in danger again".

Shortly after we adopted our lab rescue (she was about 18 mos old), she surfed my counter, found my eye glasses and proceeded to chew them up.
I was so upset with myself! I knew from her foster mom that she counter surfed, but I was lax and put my glasses down without putting them back in their hard case.
Haven't done that again!
They were my "good" glasses and $$$$, but my dog could have ingested pieces (she didn't) and been seriously injured or worse.
I was grateful and only upset with myself, not her.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Jeanne (#111), I agree that TFW's freak-outs over minor things seem to confirm that she wasn't the hands-on mom she played on TV. And that's why I think she's got full-time summer help with both the kids and the puppies.

I know tons of kids are going to be seeing "The Secret Life Of Pets" this weekend. Maybe the G kids will go with their friends, or their dad. I think the last movie TFW mentioned taking them to was "Paddington." And then we realized after she tweeted about it that it was some sort of promotion she was likely being paid for (as we'd seen aTori Spelling tweet almost the same thing). She used to claim she couldn't take the kids to the movies because there'd be pandemonium, or something like that. Those days are long gone. Yes, the argument might be made that she takes them and doesn't share about it. But I don't buy it.

Yep, she's upset at the pup.

She's not upset at HERSELF for being so careless and living shoes around for a young pup to get into. She's not grateful and relieved the pup didn't ingest something dangerous like a bead on the sandals or too much leather and has to have surgery that will be painful and scary for it.

Nope, she's just proud of herself for not going batshit on the pup for being what she is, a PUPPY. She's proud of her anger management skills.

Kate Stoltz

Doing a reality show was one of the worst decisions I made in my life. Everything on the show is so edited and out of context.

Tip to anyone that wants a good life: Go to school, work hard and stay in control of your life. Reality TV ruins peoples lives and futures.

Being on a reality show is like overhearing people talk about you, and they have their information all wrong. And you can't do anything.

It upsets me that people see someone like @KimKardashian and thing that reality TV gives people this automatic success. SHE created her life.

I don't want people to feel sorry that I'm on a show. I just wish people would know the truth.

Comments:

I don't mean this in a bad or mean way but shouldn't she be grateful for the show helping her with her modeling career?

Haha. Should be kissing the ground that she was picked to be on the show. Without it, she would most likely be struggling and unhappy.

They know that Amos King on their route gets feed supplies from x-company in Paradise, and that Emma Yoder has her fabric shipped from x-store in Fertility. I guess the Amish junk mail all ends up in Plain Sect Purgatory!

Makes sense to me!

Geez, Milo. Kate has a Shepherd. She doesn't need you, who doesn't have that breed, to tell her that!

Wouldn't it drive you batpoop crazy listening to Milo's advice, professional expertise, day in and day out? I can't figure out if she wants to be Kate's surrogate mother, or lover. She acts like Kate can't think on her own. On second thought...

Can you imagine Milo as a mother-in-law?

Well, I'm tired sitting on the LEATHER sofa, wearing my unchewed LEATHER thongs. I'm headed for the POOL. I haven't figured out yet what to put on the grill tonight. Maybe salmon with lemon and rosemary, and asparagus. Or I could just send out for General Tso.

Kate Stoltz

Doing a reality show was one of the worst decisions I made in my life. Everything on the show is so edited and out of context.

Tip to anyone that wants a good life: Go to school, work hard and stay in control of your life. Reality TV ruins peoples lives and futures.

Being on a reality show is like overhearing people talk about you, and they have their information all wrong. And you can't do anything."

What an amazing analogy. You're not really you on reality tv. You are the character that is created by the producers and editors.
I think it must be even harder as a child to be in the world where there are such widely pre-conceived notions of who you are.

I will say this-I'm kind of glad that Gladys is all over the puppies like white on rice. You can tell she's nervous about Kate raising those puppies, but she's never going to come out and say it.
I'm not a fan of antlers. I got one and watched my puppy with it and just remember thinking that he was either going to break his teeth, or poke an eye out!
I wound up tossing it. Not worth the worry.

Pool sounds great about now. We just got done making meatballs-they're done browning in the oven and about to take a dunk in the sauce for awhile.
I know-it's 90 degrees out and I'm braising meatballs! Ground beef was on sale at the Giant so I bought that and decided to go for broke and buy some veal and pork and make a ton of meatballs.
Salmon on the grill sounds nice, too ;-)

This is hard enough for many adults and most adults don't gravitate toward careers that come with overwhelming public scrutiny from strangers. But a child is in no way emotionally capable of dealing with the public.

If she had not locked up Shoka and Nala, she would not be surprised by a puppy chewing a shoe. Just wait until one of the puppies chews a chair or table leg. She won't be so chill about that, LOL. But we'll never know how she punishes those puppies, will we?

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Admin (#133), and that's why TFW's "family vote" about filming was so ridiculous. Her children were TODDLERS. How in the world could they make a cogent decision about something they were not yet old enough to grasp?

At least one of those 8 kids, if not several, will rebel sooner rather than later. Trips, money, and first-class treatment is no replacement for a healthy, balanced childhood. But TFW basically negotiated theirs away, and continues to do so.

I truly believe the Church Ladies are the real deal. They have lives just like everyone else and they live in small towns in West Virginia. They talk about their family and friends just like anyone else. They are not that worldly but love certain TV shows like Big Brother and have TV watching parties at their homes. I would love to know these gals in real life.

I agree, especially where children, who have absolutely no choice about participating and who do not have the maturity to deal with it, are involved. But, to play devils advocate, some might turn this around and say that the TFW we see on tv is not the 'real' her, that she's not the abusive, narcissistic, greedy, person we've witnessed for years.

Some might argue that TFW's reputation is the fault of the network and not due to her own words and actions. And, that's where I disagree with what Kate Stoltz is saying. Yes, I agree that many things are taken out of context and edited and viewer's perceptions may be skewed and it must be incredibly frustrating to not be able to address the many criticisms, but the words and actions seen on tv came from her and she and anyone in reality tv have to ultimately be responsible and accountable for them and not blame editing.

Just last week one of our resident trolls was chiding us for criticizing Kate for being outside with the kids while the puppies napped inside, insisting they must be locked up in their crates.

Well by this latest admission Kate has just proven that the pups HAVE been unsupervised without being properly secured in their crates. How else can you get into sandals and a dinner platter but for not being supervised or crated properly? Point us.

Exactly, Tucker's. The child is trying to figure out who she or he is, establish an identity, be his own person, only to be told that nope, for the show you must be this or that. My gosh...how confusing for a child not to know where he fits into the whole scheme of things (and life in general) or what is to be expected of him.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

. But, to play devils advocate, some might turn this around and say that the TFW we see on tv is not the 'real' her, that she's not the abusive, narcissistic, greedy, person we've witnessed for years.

&&&&

Yes that's true. I think for me it's less about whether it's true someone is really like that or not, and more about her point in that strangers get to judge you and you can't really do much about it. Whether someone is greedy or not isn't so much the point.

Now, Kate is an adult and can choose to be in the public eye. But a child cannot. And, even if a child's true personality trait is greedy (or whatever other negative trait), they are just a child and just developing. They have time to develop into a more well-rounded and kind adult. Many children go through phases where they are not very likable, and turn out to be very nice adults in the end. Is it fair their personalities are so exposed when they are still being molded? That's like presenting a half-baked cake for critique before completion. That then begs the question though, taking the case of Mady, might she not fully develop to her best potential because the public was so aware of some of her personality traits early in her life? In other words if she gets a reaction to certain traits might she actually not work through them and past them?

All that said, the public has a right to comment on public figures.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Blowing (#145), and imagine trying to establish an identity when your parents "define" you week after week during the opening credits of your show? While still in diapers, C was branded as stubborn, J as sneaky, and A as wild. Those weren't comments during an interview, or a throwaway remark on one episode. It was part of every single show.

True. It would be a valid argument if one didn't know her or witnessed her behavior OFF the show and know darn well how conniving and narcissistic she can be.

When she yelled at Jon in the Toys R Us episode, or flew off the handle on the RV trip, or whined and moaned in Alaska, that's the way that she is. Nothing about that was scripted. Walt (in his blog) had her pegged from the beginning. His observations were dead on. You can get an idea of the "real" Kate by reading the notes that Robert published in his book. That's Kate. Nothing scripted for a reality television show.

Over And Out (#153), give Gladys an inch, and she'll take a mile. She's high right now from all of TFW's attention, and the lines are blurring again. She's not a friend of TFW's, nor a relative, nor a spokesperson.
She has absolutely no business acting as good will ambassador between TFW and her fans. But she's feeling warm and cozy and loved, so she's getting cocky. I say soon enough she'll cross a more significant line, get razzed about it, and then will go off to sulk for a while -- hoping someone misses her. It's a fairly predictable pattern with her.

But I do hope Gladys will stick around until the Chicago event. We're sure to be treated to some passive/aggressive LOL tweets to the Twitter fans lucky (?) enough to attend!

Is there a clinical term for her illness, other than buttinskyitism?

Something is really, really wrong with her, and it's a shame that nobody in her family seems to care or even recognize it. I wonder if she gets no attention at home, and just feels like a 5th wheel there. Twitter is the only way that she can feel important, and Kate was the lucky person to whom Milo latched onto. It couldn't happen to a more deserving person!

NJGal51 said...

My puppy can sneak a shoe out of our bedroom and we won't even know it's gone until we find it on his "cave". He doesn't really chew them at this point just wants them for his collection. He's getting the hang of what it means to "go potty outside". We treat train and he only gets the good treats (cut up chicken or steak) when he goes potty outside. I would love to see TFW standing next to the puppies telling them what a wonderful poop they just did. I even take the hose and squirt every poop back to nature all the while checking to see if there's anything in there that shouldn't be (yup, some of that blue paper from the back of the puppy pads and a small piece of foam off the back of a rug). I'm sure that if I got down and looked closely I'd find puppy teeth marks on the table legs.

Lanc Native said...

NJ Gal -- I miss those puppy days. Our little Maltese is 15 years old. I remember how she would chase butterflies around the grassy area at the pool (where we have some buttefly bushes) tearing around and barking, thinking she could catch them, but she never did.

Now I carry her outside, put her in her favorite cool spot in the gazebo where she can watch the kids in the pool and the butterflies but is unable to swim or chase. She lets us know, though, if she wants to float around on the raft!

Those puppy and potty training days go by so fast. Looking back, they sometimes were a challenge, but I'd love to have just one more puppy day back again!

Lanc Native said...

I had some of that on in the background yesterday too and I saw Kate Coyne pop up. I had the same reaction.

Was she ever even a reporter on the royals during Diana's tenure or was she still in college? Sheesh.

It's clear Coyne is not really serious about celebrity journalism. Rather, she wants a career as a talking head. She's figured out that's where the money is. She is really popping up lately in a variety of places.

Which is why she's been such a staunch supporter of Kate. Coyne latched onto Kate early on and it turned out to be a goldmine for selling People magazine.
Coyne milked the Gosselin saga for everything it was worth, and it got Coyne major face time on major network programming.
I think it helped mold her career into what it is today.

I also noticed Coyne wrote a book about her various encounters with celebs and their fans. Granted I haven't read it but she frames it as awkward fan encounters, so I'm taking an educated guess it's about what she's observed hanging out with celebs.

Okay, I will make fun of Kate's fans with the best of them, but it seems rather mean girl to write down some of the encounters you've seen in actual book form then throw it on Amazon and make money off it. A lot of these fans are either young, or slow, or missing something in their life. It's one thing to informally tease and poke fun. Quite another to profit off it.

Although I'm betting Coyne is a better writer than Kate (and she's clearly more intelligent), I question her objectivity when she gushes over someone like Tom Cruise (of course he makes you feel special-its what he does).
At that point, you are clearly a fan girl and brainwashed by Hollywood culture.
There aren't that many Amazon comments on Coyne's book, but I imagine it did well this summer among people who love to read tabloids.

Yes, indeed. I've run into quite a few of those celebrity hanger-on-ers (writers) and could spot them a mile away. Celebrities need to create boundaries as to how chummy they get with that kind of "journalist" (and I use that term very loosely). The more you give them, the closer they try to become. They can also turn on you in a heartbeat.

I never ran into Coyne, though, thank goodness and knock on wood!

Her hair seemed like it was 5 feet long like it was at the yard sale but it was not as messed up as the yard sale.

But the look on her face. Looked like she was mad as hello. I just got glances of her, it was quick. I am going to try to find a video of it so I can pause it.

So now her kids are down to being a mention on a poster board. Reminds me of DWTS or CWS and their clothes were hanging on the clothes line with their names on them or on boxes? Can't remember.

I'm guessing most journalists who pursue the celebrity niche are mostly doing it just to brush shoulders with the rich and famous.
A glorified fanboy. I'll say this of Coyne, at least she owns it. I would have expected her to deny she's just a crazy fan. She actually admits that's her motive.

Shades of Milo and Uggs. Milo, though, lusts after one celebrity. At least she's true to Kate and isn't at all embarrassed by drooling all over her.

Uggs, however, has a few crushes, same demographics, but I imagine she would take whatever she could get.

You just have to wonder about the mindset of these people. Do they honestly expect to be invited to the homes of these well-known persons? I mean...why?

I don't have Twitter, but did Uggs go private?

Its just another thing to give the fans to kiss their butts and say they aren't bad people. http://www.tlc.com/tv-shows/i-am-tlc/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=tlc&sf30516683=1

You got it.
"A bad mother"...yes, I think Kate Gosselin is a bad mother for selling her children's privacy for fame and money.
She's not fat, or gay, or little, or suffering from a devastating disease, or trans, or, or, or.
Kate Gosselin monetized her HOM children from the time they were toddlers, and will stop at nothing to continue.
She's not empowered. Cut me a break. There's nothing to admire or be inspired about, unless you're like the vast majority if former fans who witnessed this shit show and have learned just how wrong-headed it is to film children's lives for "reality" tv.

Here's the link..scroll down to the video (red) on left to the 'I AM' Kate was acting (haha) The rest were acting "fierce" too. What was eyebrow raising was what she said.

Kate looks like the "after" in one of those make-up contouring tutorials. Plus botox. Plus face and neck tightening.

I kind of want to read this book now just to see how else she embarrassed herself.

The idea that she doesn't catch on Mariska was just saying that like lots of people just say stuff, and didn't ever seriously intend to invite her over.....sounds like Coyne has poor social skills like TFW does, unable to tell the difference between a sincere invite versus people who just say stuff. If it's a celeb, 99 times out of 100 they're just saying stuff and have forgotten about you 30 seconds after you left.

Her encounter with Mariska Hargitay is totally creepy. Mariska Hargitay is not going to invite you over for "game night". You're embarrassing yourself Coyne.
*******
Most celebs think of people like Coyne as useful idiots. Coyne seems truly flattered that any of them would give her the time of day, and truly over the moon that a mega-star like Cruise remember a conversation with her.
I bet we've all met charismatic people like that, who are remarkable at remembering personal details (more likely have their personal assistant prompting them) and make you feel like you the only person in the room.
That what they do, and you should generally be very, very wary of them.

Now that looks like the bed Shoka sleeps on. The photo op bed in the house is just too pristine to be a regularly slept on bed.

The flip side is that Coyne knew that Mariska was blowing smoke up her bleached arse, but thought it would be a good idea to bust her chops the next time she saw her.
Also...uncomfortable.

Thank you James and NOIP for the I AM video.

Wow, she said, Terrible Mother. She is saying that people think she is a terrible mother, but she really thinks that she is not a terrible mother.

That's nuts because whe reply is a terrible mother.

I paused a closeup of her face. A poster said that they wished she would have her face spackled and believe me it was spackled.

Her face does not look like a 41 year old woman. Much older.

Exactly. Oh, poor Kate. She's really just working her gel tips to the bone, like so many other single moms. You know, working 2 jobs, scrubbing toilets and floors, mowing the lawn, doing every single task all by herself, never getting a day off, trying to figure out how she's going to pay the bills.
Yeah, right.

I aw the "I Am" video on TLC (had to turn it on and look for it). She looked so pi$$ed off in every shot. Not the others, they all had the fierce face at first, then happy shots. She just had the angry look all the time.

While looking for the clip (Return to Amish was on. I don't like that show, but I wanted to see the "I Am" clip), was that there were lots of ads for upcoming shows in August and even one in September, but no mention of K+8. I wonder if they are postponing it because of the issues with The Little Couple. If they don't have a popular show to boost K+8, then why bother showing K+8? The show can't stand on its own, and ratings will bottom out.

It's very interesting that K+8 was supposed to be on almost 3 months ago, and yet there's still nothing on the schedule. Oh yes, verrrry interesting...

Does Coyne bleach her ass or is that just a figure of speech.

There must be a lower tier gossip rag writer who can investigate ;-)
Maybe Perez Hilton knows.

She's still batting for the team, so it's a head scratcher why her show's new episodes aren't being aired.
If she isn't lying through her veneers, TLC has been filming recently with the puppies.

In looking at Milo's IG account, I see that she refers to the dog she named Katie Irene as "Miss K." Why the name change Milo?
