Discussion Thread: Game Night 1/10/2017

"Game Night"January 10, 2017
Kate and the younger kids have a family game show night, with Mady as their host, which involves them answering questions about past seasons and episodes of their show.

Bringing this over from the previous thread

Fleecing The Sheeple said... 57

One usually doesn't go to the ER for constipation, unless that child is in extreme distress and in urgent need of medical help, which I don't think that Collin was. Jon knew exactly what it was and took care of it. Kate didn't give a rat's patootie.

///////

I think we needn't forget that at that point, Jon dragged Collin to the store, for filming, just as much as Kate. Yes, he ultimately helped Collin more but I can't forget that Jon was as responsible as Kate for Collin's predicament that day.

TLC stinks said...

Just how many times must TLC and Kate rehash past episodes? The trivia game show is a roundabout way of presenting a clip show episode. This reminds me of hearing years ago of a Gosselin game Kate thought about marketing.

So like I said, I could only get through half of the episode on TLC GO. They spent big bucks, courtesy of TLC, to outfit the game show and Kate had the gall to mention, when she saw the cash register tape at Target, how expensive it all was (like it was coming out of her pocket). Of course, the whole time there was no looking at prices while they were grabbing stuff off the shelves. Same at Michael's.

Because those kids have grown up with TLC bankrolling their shopping trips, I suspect no one has learned about budgeting or shopping within their means. Mady was going around Target snapping pictures of items she liked, I assume to put in a wish list. Nothing worse than an entitled teenage girl.

FYI, while watching the Game Show on TLC GO, Blue Apron has commercials. Coincidence????

Yes, that is interesting. My daughter watches a British couple with a 3 year old boy. They vlog their daily life
^^^
Oh, God, why? Why do parents vlog and blog their children's lives as if they exist for fodder that will give them the attention they so desperately need?
I used to think some "Mommy bloggers" were really talented, with their writing skills and personal photos. But at the end of the day, they are just sad, sad, sad people who crave attention from strangers.
Moreover, they by and large have castrated husbands who are so ineffectual that they stand by idly and allow it to happen, fully abdicating their duty as a parent to protect their children.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

TLC stinks (#2), and nobody really needs clip shows any more because clips are so readily available to viewers. This show was meant to stir up nostalgia. Hey, America, remember how you used to love this family? Weren't the kids sooooo cute and tiny? Wasn't their poor mom soooo frazzled? With so many kids, who wouldn't be! Oh, the fun they had! And don't kids say the darndest things? Like, literally?

Except now we know too much. This wasn't a struggling family -- their lifestyle was subsidized by TLC. TFW wasn't that overwhelmed -- she had tons of help. And most significantly to me, there's the sickening knowledge that she used to beat those babies -- something we've read about in her own words. You can't unring that bell.

Tucker's Mom said...

Barbglimmer got in a bit of a dig..."LOL, but Nanuq is a true blonde (fawn) color...just saying!"

Yeah, don't pee on my leg and tell me its raining ;-0
Kate's a brunette that spends thousands and thousands a year to dye her lid yellow.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

TLC stinks (#2), another thing about that Target shopping trip. We determined it was shot at the end of last January -- a time when many real moms, and certainly single moms, were probably recovering from the financial strain of the holiday season, and sincerely piecing and patching to get by.
But there was America's Least Relatable Mother, loading her wagon with essentials like bedsheets for her family game show.

The pic of K8 lifting dog has picked up more comments, including these from Doofus #1 and Doofus #2. As you can see, K8 has the storyline for Nala's disappearance all worked out now--whew! BTW, I don't see any comment from #MountainGirl, so I assume she's been deleted/blocked.

kateplusmy8 Anytime anyone mentions wearing sweatpants as if you now have one foot in the grave, it makes me laugh too! Cold, wintertime, three dogs, eight kids.. I'd be nuts if I DIDN'T wear sweatpants, right? Guess I shouldn't mention that I have 2 pair of crocs --one at each front and back doors for 'doggy potty trips' or people will go straight over the edge??

miloandjack2016@kateplusmy8 LOL. Had to side w/you here! Being a real down to earth #SoMuchToDo mom. ..you wear whats comfortable...practical...and functional!! We cant look like we stepped out of #FashionistaMag & do what we have to do all day!!! �� Now lets see those #PottyRunCrocs?

miloandjack2016@kateplusmy8 So next time you do those #Nanuq weight lifting curls...be sure and put on your lil black dress! #DressAppropriately. #NoSweatsAllowed. LOL

nick_moy OK.. let's get serious now. And following the season finale theme of nostalgia, is lifting Nanuq remind you of carrying the septuplet for 30 weeks.. ha ha ha.. For all you went through you more than earn and deserve the right to DO as you please, ACT as you please SAY anything as you please. You have inspired many people who struggled just like you and hated by the ones who are afraid that they will FAIL misserable if they had to try. Don't let negative people and their comments poison your own view of life and your happiness. They are only hurting themselves because NOBODY care what they have to say... Hope to see MANY more seasons of Kate +8. ������

miloandjack2016@nick_moy This #MountainGirl is an #IG troll! She flies by and drops her cow patty negative nuggets to harass Kate. Like Kate is going to read that doom & gloom point of view and say "oh why didn't I think of that?" LOL. #NOT!! @kateplusmy8 remains committed to doing the best she can w/a positive frame of mind!

nick_moy@miloandjack2016 I wonder sometimes what contribution to the good of society or mankind when people make such stupid negative remarks. How does it make us a better species This is contrary to the belief that we are the intelligent species. I say that when these negative idiots speaks ONLY other negative idiots listens.. They can go take a long walk on a short pier...

nick_moy@miloandjack2016 seems like mountain goat is still a neanderthal and is trying to attract like minded neanderthal. Hopefully in time they will eventually join the evolution train and grow a bigger brain...

lifeasmeganmalone Whatever happened to Nala?

kateplusmy8 I was so busy with kid care when Shoka and Nala were little that I didn't realize how much like babies puppies are..I was in it with my kids. Now that they are older, I feel like I've gone back to the 'baby stage' again (picking up EVERYTHING bc it's a choking hazard, no sleep at first, meal and bed schedule etc) with Mak and Nanuq, but finally at almost 9 months, they are getting easier! Whew! We survived!:) You will too!:) @alylmoser

kateplusmy8 I had to be honest with myself, and at that time I couldn't do TWO dogs! The kids were heartbroken when they went back to the breeder to be cared for at the time (too much going on here and instability for two puppies. It was best for them) and so was I �� like I had let them all down... I promised we'd get one back and Shoka was the easiest of the 2... I still feel like I let a child (Nala) down to this day BUT she has a wonderful home and lots of land to 'patrol'! I had to think long and hard this time but knew we were ready to have three dogs now, years later. They aren't going anywhere! They are family members ..and so is Nala... :/ #ToughDecisionsHurtButAreBestSometimes @lifeasmeganmalone

Sad but true said...

Re the above IG comments (darn 4,096-character limit!):

I love this line, "I still feel like I let a child (Nala) down to this day." REALLY? As I recall, at the time the dogs went back to the breeder, wasn't K8 rarely home? And "kid care" was keeping her busy? Seems to me fame, fortune, and STEVE were her focus at the time. If only one had a detailed calendar for how she was spending her time in those days. The fact is, the constant repetition of her version of events is what keeps the blinders on the sheep. I do wonder how successful it is on the kids.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Sad but true (#9), I wonder...does TFW feel like she let C down? More sentiment and reflection expressed about Nala than I've heard about her missing son. Something is wrong with that woman.

Oh, and TFW, you keep getting your numbers wrong. It's 3 dogs and SEVEN kids. Perhaps if you stuck a Post-It reminder on your pink phone...

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Whoa, so much to digest from TFW's word salad. Nala is still family...but the kids' father isn't. Got it.

OMG, does lightning never strike this woman? Kate said that the terms of her getting the puppies included the kids would have to get up at night to let them out! Now SHE'S the one who lost sleep?

It's also a FACT that Jon was there when the kids were babies and toddlers. The sheep conveniently forget that FACT.
Jon parented more than Kate, period. He did.
Kate put those kids to bed for HOURS every single day and when Jon walked through the door at night, she clocked out.
So, at best, Kate was on duty (with TONS of help) from 8-6 M-F.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

A properly trained puppy should only be keeping you up at night for the first couple days because he's crying. Then, 1-2 potty breaks a night for maybe the first four weeks. But at four or 5 months he should be sleeping through the night, holding it after his "last call" the night before, and then being let out to go reasonably early the next morning. 6-630.

The idea that it has taken her 9 months for things to finally get easier with these dogs is either her exaggerating, or having no idea how to train a dog. No one would get a puppy if it required that much work and loss of sleep. People lose enough sleep with human children. It's a couple weeks of hard work that immediately pays off--way easier than a real child!

This is a fine breed of dog eager to learn who is going to pick up on good training quicker than scat. Lazy dog owner.

How about putting a leash on the dogs and taking them for actual walks instead of opening the door and walking away?

@Sad but true Is it me or does Nick moy sound like a milo sock?I still think the person running that account is one of the loyal fans thats been around for years.They sound like milo in the sense that they have that passive aggressive type of attitude but when a Kate hater pisses them off,they reveal their true selves.

TLC stinks said...

Who the hell is she kidding? We saw the puppy schedule and it was childish scrawl clocking in and out. Those boys are taking care of the dogs. Sheesh.

Also, it was amusing (I watched the first 10 minutes of the Sweet 16 on TLC GO) that it was definitely late fall and chilly (everyone in jackets) when they filmed the Gator driving with the twins. And there was Kate in flip flops?

After the driving lesson, Kate explained about the party planning with her and Mady in front of the Mac laptops. Now it was all green outside, LOL. Funny thing, as Mady was dismissing everything Kate thought was cute such as some pillows with a fox motif, those pillows showed up on the outside deck furniture in a photo I saw. So I have to wonder if Mady was instructed to say NO to everything Kate suggested to make her look insolent. Boy, the editing was so out of sequence in that episode.

And there was a tup during the couch interview snapping the clapper and it said November something. Seems the filming was very disjointed because of all that was going on with custody and Collin.

It was interesting that Cara said she was excited to get her license so she could drive to Lancaster for her sports practices but then she said she's not allowed to drive and sounded disappointed. So I don't think it's about these girls not being interested in driving, I think it's been forbidden as a means of control. God forbid these kids are ever allowed any freedom.

Kate is a twit said...

"I promised we'd get one back and Shoka was the easiest of the 2.."
------------

That's not what she said in March 2010, 7 months before Shoka returned. She said that BOTH dogs would be coming back.

http://people.com/celebrity/gosselin-family-to-bring-dogs-shoka-and-nala-home-2/

Interesting quote in that article:

“I realized if I had two difficult kids I wouldn’t send them away and ask for new kids.”

TLC stinks said...

Talk about gaslighting about Nala! We are aware those dogs were left in their cages for hours to lay in their excrement. Nala got aggressive and that's why Kate did not want her. She used to refer to the dogs on the show as "Jon's dogs" so there you go. The dogs were a gimmick and still are. Jon should have made arrangements to take Shoka and Nala with him but he was too much into his own lifestyle at the time. She keeps posting these ridiculous dog pictures to prove what a good pet parent (i.e. human parent) she is. BS.

TLC stinks said...

German Shepherds are some of the smartest dogs there are. There is no excuse other than her laziness to have any issues at this point.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Tucker's Mom (#12), and I am still convinced TFW had a ton of help when these new 2 puppies arrived. She has shown again and again how lazy she is, and how she will pass off responsibility to anyone and everyone.
Remember when they got Shoka and Nala and one of the tiny tups was seen with a spray bottle and a paper towel, wiping up pee? I can't imagine TFW missed 5 minutes of sack time to address those dogs' needs. So her brave tale of surviving their exhausting puppyhood? I ain't buying it.

She should feel horrible for not treating Nala with love, caring and respect. Those dogs were abused.
Funny how Kate feels she let Nala down, but Collin?
Eh, it's like he just went off to college, that's all.
He's not coming back either. Kate seems to have resigned herself to that and washed her hands of parenting him.
How sick do you have to be to hand your child over and institutionalize him, over at least trying to see if he thrives with the other parent?

KIAT (#19), thanks for that link. TFW can't keep up with her lies. But we sure can!

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

And the sad thing is some of these smarter breeds WANT to learn. Like a smart child who is not stimulated, half of her problems are probably related to a dog that just isn't being challenged. These dogs are happier, more well behaved, when given tasks to learn and master. It can be as simple as learning potty training, how to properly walk, and how to sit and behave when guests come over. But if she's not giving them enough to think about and learn, if she's just letting them wander outside and loaf around inside, you're going to have neurotic dogs. And unfortunately with a dog like that, neurotic can be very, very dangerous.

On average, a dog like this should be picking up on basic to more advanced training within hours, days, at most a few weeks. It just isn't normal to be struggling 9 months with this, it is NOT normal to not have a dog like this sleeping through the night within a few weeks, and then for her to brag about it? She's nuts.

-------------------
I think it's just Milo revealing her true self. She likes to present herself as a sweet little church meetings southern gal, but it's all a facade. You get her anger up and look out. I remember her talking about butting heads with LOM, so I think that she's very capable of doing the same thing when the haters get under her skin.

TLC stinks said...

Regarding the Sweet Sixteen party, I've never seen a house in such disarray! And if you changed a party's location the day of, why was no one assigned to call the guests? That would be my first worry. Kate was over-the-top nuts in that episode.

Regarding the Game Show, Mady was speaking so fast she was difficult to understand. She said she had homework to do so rushing through the game.

Blowing In The Wind said...

I think we needn't forget that at that point, Jon dragged Collin to the store, for filming, just as much as Kate. Yes, he ultimately helped Collin more but I can't forget that Jon was as responsible as Kate for Collin's predicament that day.

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

Maybe up to that point, when they went to the store, Collin wasn't in that much distress. We don't know how much time had elapsed between dragging them to the store and actually filming. Maybe Collin was just too timid about saying that he was really hurting when they went to the store. We just don't know, but I seriously doubt that Jon would have taken them if he had known that Collin was miserable. Kate would have said that he was just complaining and he'd be fine and that they needed to film. I think at that time you just didn't defy Kate. She was in control.

Anonymous said...

TLC Stinks (28),

In regards to the location change and the guests and in their defense, Mady and Cara could have had a group chat/message with all of their friends to let them know. That's just one option that I can think of.

That is what I have been saying and thinking, the words that this Nic Moy uses are not from a real person, they are carefully written (like a sock) and the person it is coming across as (to me)is not from a normal person being a fan, he/she is obvious pretending to suck up to Kate and so nice mannered and happy happy happy it is sickening! and he/she seems to come out of from nowhere but knows all the history (supposedly) of Kate HARD LIFE and sacrifices!!! Now I need to go think about something else, it makes my head hurt thinking about all the things I would like to tie her down and tell her off (with her eyes covered- don't want to see them rolling and her mouth taped shut- so you don't have to hear her speak!)

Kate's Fetid Soul said...

Eh- honestly, who cares? Kate's exhausting & exhaustingly boring.

I mean really, in the gran scheme of things, Kate's truly just a blip on mankind's map.

I think that she's probably relishing that people are hanging on to her every word, and action- giving her more importance than she will ever deserve.

As far as her "Game Night" episode- having read viewer reviews (here and on the internet), I'm guessing that people walked away with a bad taste in their mouths.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

TLC stinks (#28), c'mon, if TFW was AWNestly expecting a houseful of people, wouldn't she have had her housekeeper clean the place from top to bottom?

But the viewers were fooled into believing this was a same-day, last-minute decision. That the Jerky people told TFW to just come on by -- hosting a birthday party would brighten up their humdrum day! But TV is more complicated than that. A budget had to be approved for the location. A crew needed to be there ahead of time to map things out for their equipment. And if it was a crew other than the crew filming at the house, that additional cost needed to be approved. Releases had to be signed. There needed to be signage at the location notifying people that it was going to be closed for production, and during what hours. The place had to have ample
parking set aside not just for the guests,
but the production crew. And many more details we probably have no idea about.
All pre-arranged and pre-approved. And all of it the furthest thing from the realest reality.

How sick do you have to be to do this with your child child, and then turn around and bring in two 8-week-old puppies, as if that's somehow going to compensate either your other children and/or your viewers? Because that's ALL this was about, a distraction for the kids and audience alike so that Collin's absence would be less noticeable. Now that's sick, and very finely and ruthlessly calculated, too. I wonder if the concept was "tested" on audiences before she went ahead with it.

TLC stinks said...

LA, true, but it was all preplanned for the jerky place. It revolved around filming on a rainy day but amazingly it was not raining when they arrived at the jerky place. What a bunch of baloney story lines.

Looked catered so why those salmon burgers? Funny that she wasn't able to jet the twins for a vacay birthday. Besides, that party was NOT held in October but certainly during the summer judging from their attire. Looks like TLC has cut her budget.

The kitchen and dining room were exploding with messes. Ms. Organized she is not. I bet it's like that all the time except when her cleaning lady shows up.

Oh, and she just happened to reserve the ice cream truck and have Brownlow there to do an art project? On the day the party location suddenly changed? And again, where was that rain when the ice cream truck arrived? LOL, I think a crew daddy used a hose to wet the window to make it appear it was raining on an overcast day. The closeup of the deck was not even wet.

jamesvader1194 said...

@Tlc Stinks Regarding the twins driving,someone here pointed out a contradiction from Mady.In the PEOPLE interview mady said she had no time for a "toxic" relationship with her father and that she was busy with many activities such as learning to drive but in the sweet 16 episode mady said she had no motive to learn to drive because she just goes to school and back home.It was something along those lines.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Tucker's Mom (#40), I agree that observing this woman is fascinating, especially as she's getting faster and looser with the truth. She is really a piece of work.

Her desperation seems to be showing in the past few weeks. Tonight is the first episode of Season 3 of the Duggar girls' show. Jinger's wedding will be aired soon, and then both Jill and Jessa having their second babies. And I just checked tomorrow's TLC listings, and they've got an Outdaughtered marathon that lasts for...wait for it...20 hours. Will Gladys tweet to TFW and TLC about how much she misses TFW on Tuesday nights, and beg for another season?

Rainbirdie said...

-----
I do recall reading somewhere that their contract specifically said filming would not stop if someone was sick. (Am I remembering that correctly?) So I suppose, per the contract, they may have had no choice but to drag a sick toddler along on a grifting spree. So in addition to the parents, I also consider TLC responsible. Plus the camera crew who filmed the whole darned thing. Not one adult that day stopped the money train for a child in distress. Shame on them all.

Yes, you are right! But, Robert also said that JON was the neat freak! TFW reminds me of someone who runs around in circles (when she is not sleeping) trying to prove that she is doing things and making strides but really doesn't do anything and has nothing to show for all that effort.

GollyGee said...

Everyone who did nothing to help the children when they were sick or hurt and forced them to film will be held accountable one day.

Sickening the list of infirmaries those children suffered when being forced to film is as long as a criminal's record, a mile long.

Very telling when you are filming Family Game Night and your daughter's ankle is almost broken and you make the nanny take her to the drs. office and you stay behind to get your presence on film for eternity.

GollyGee said...

I always felt there was something weird about the nick moy tweeter. Came up out of nowhere overnight and knows everything about Kate, her hardships and no questioning it.

Something's fishy.

RoxyHelen said...

Has anyone pointed out here that Jon was the one who send the dogs away? Not Kate, Jon. He said that nobody was taking care of the dogs in his absence and since he was only there during his custody time(this all happened back when Jon and Kate used to take turns staying with the kids at the mansion during their respective custody time, while the other stayed at a hotel) he said it was for the best. It was around that time that the paps filmed the kids shoving and hitting the dogs(presumably also while Kate was home and couldn't be bothered). Maybe he actually couldn't take them, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one since back then he used to live in apartments, these were two big dogs,there may very well have been a no dog policy.

Remember Kate used this as a move against Jon when filming started again. She brought Shoka back and we all speculated it was a way to undermine Jon, basically saying "See, mean daddy send the dogs away but I, the mommy who cares about you, brought them back". I think Admin actually commented on this in the Gosselins Goblins and Ghouls recap.

jamesvader1194 said...

@FilmsyFlamsy Oh you bet that not just Gladys but also some other fans will be crying to TLC about how they miss Kate's show tomorrow.Apart of me is wondering if,TLC keeps her because they know the twitter fans won't stop pestering them to bring her back.Then again this would imply that the fans would be a powerful group if just a handful can convince TLC to keep Kate regardless of the under million view count.

RoxyHelen said...

#43 Rainbirdie I couldn't agree more with you, my comment was to show that I do not give Jon a pass on anything pre-divorce(and some post divorce things as well). Yes, he helped out Collin, eventually but let's not forget he's one of the adults that put Collin in that position in the first place.(not the constpation of course, the being in a store in huge discomfort and having to receive help in the back of a van)

Oh, but they WILL stop. Remember, when she was cancelled in 2011, she averaged many more viewers than she did this past season. And IIRC, very few were clamoring for her to come back. In fact, it was rather a surprise when she did re-emerge in 2014. Again, whether or not she is officially "cancelled," TLC doesn't have to say a thing to anyone. They just never give her an air date. And of course, we'll know, cuz K8 will be all over social media trying to whip up some support.

Sad but true said...

RoxyHelen said... 48

This is a great point, and I didn't recall that Jon made the decision. So all her bemoaning the loss of Nala on IG is just invented. Like so much else. Having such a detailed record of your past is quite the double-edged sword, ain't it?

TLC stinks said...

I believe Jon was living in that expensive NYC apartment right after the divorce. IMO, he did the best thing by removing the dogs from that environment. It would have been wonderful if he took them home but who knows what their temperament was after being abused by Kate. I don't blame him regarding Shoka and Nala. What does upset me is that Kate got Shoka back from that so-called breeder.

Kate succeeded in making the twins come off as giggling imbeciles driving that Gator erratically on purpose. I guess it was supposed to be funny, but I found it dumb. A Gator is incredibly simple to operate and I believe someone who lives nearby said the girls drive it all the time.

I am guessing here, but let's say TLC nixed the idea of a Sweet 16 car...could explain why Kate decided the girls don't need to drive yet. Before this episode they both sounded excited about driving. Instead, they get a dumb party with some friends and few kids they barely knew, parents too, with a surprise visit from a hairdresser. Then everyone was forced to watch baby videos. Sounds like good times.

I think the whole moving the twins' party was totally contrived. Mady went along with it and Cara just put up with it.

Did K8 give them a gift for the cameras? Or was the lame-ass party their "gift"? Like those girls weren't expecting (and didn't get) something much more major.

but I can't forget that Jon was as responsible as Kate for Collin's predicament that day.
-----
I do recall reading somewhere that their contract specifically said filming would not stop if someone was sick. (Am I remembering that correctly?) So I suppose, per the contract, they may have had no choice but to drag a sick toddler along on a grifting spree. So in addition to the parents, I also consider TLC responsible. Plus the camera crew who filmed the whole darned thing. Not one adult that day stopped the money train for a child in distress. Shame on them all.

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

I agree with all of the above. However, I have to wonder if Jon was the reason the cameras only filmed him helping Collin from a distance and not from close up. Given how much personal stuff was filmed right in the kids' faces, it wouldn't have been surprising to see this up close and personal too. Maybe Jon and Collin had to film per their contact, but maybe Jon said this is as close as you'll get. Just a thought.

If Kate said "we do the filming," then you better believe that he did as Kate said or his life would have been miserable. For Kate, filming was not going to stop because one of the kids was constipated. I can't imagine what it would be like living under the control of Kate the Shrew.

New comment to last IG photo. I have to ask: Is the average fan really this stupid? And is this what TLC counts on when deciding programming? "How do you do it financially"? Really??? Pretty much 100% of what this fan has described is courtesy of TLC paychecks and perks. FYI, "Ms. Fan," there IS no other visible means of support. She sells her kids and their lives, period.

XXXXX How do u do it all?!? Just amazing! Sometimes I hear people being judge mental but I say this....let them try and raise 8 kids by themselves! Is it rude for me to ask....how do you do it financially? You have a beautiful big house, take wonderful vacations all over the world and are able to cloth, feed and give the kids everything they need and you don't work (I mean besides being a Mommy to 8) I can barely do it with one kid! πŸ’—

Layla said...

I don't think TLC would make an announcement if they decide to cancel. When Toby Willis was arrested,it was reported that TLC had de died months before to cancel their show, but there was no announcement.

I think TLC will either take a nice, long break from filming the Gs, or will cut back to occasional specials. I think they might want to keep a foot in the door for the tups turning 13 and16, graduating, plus maybe weddings and future babies. Those events get big ratings for the Duggars and the LPBW family. But K+8 is not going to be profitable as an ongoing show.

I honk Kate has been reassured that there will be future filming, but I doubt that it will happen soon.

Kate will always be agreeable to filming. Her door will always be open.

C'mon everyone. You don't change the filter on the fridge. You get TLC to buy you a new fridge or break it and beg the mfr for a new one.

Since I'm not a dog person, I have a question. The dogs went back to the breeder, which I think is good if they were not taken care of. Then she supposedly got Shoka back and we have asked before why a good breeder would allow that. Question is: How do we know it's the same Shoka? If she got the same breed, fully grown, male, would we know? It would have been tougher to get two dogs to resemble Shoka and Nala.

There WAS speculation about that when the dog came back. A lot of people swore it wasn't the same dog. I don't pay enough attention to the TLC-sponsored pets to know one way or the other. But I wouldn't be at all surprised if the one who came back was not the one who left.

If so, why doesn't she and the kids simply after rinsing something put them immediately in the dishwasher. Or why not have a two compartment sink and keep the rinsed dirty dished in the other half. Anything to get that tub off the counter. Both the blue pitchers and the tub make her beautiful kitchen look so tacky.

Jon was an adult. Let's not make excuses for his part in the (early) children's exploitation.

RoxyHelen said...

Here's the video proving Jon send the dogs away. For anyone who wasn't around back then, the video also shows how the media crucified Jon, calling him an unfit father for returning the dogs to the breeder and for having an affair. Don't get me wrong, even if Jon did cheat on Kate(which I doubt), yes it would be bad but how does that make him an unfit father? It would make him an unfit husband if anything. Anyways, goes to show how far Kate was willing to go to continue filming.

Oh God, if you watch that video long enough, some moron claims the interactions between Jon and Kate(meaning Kate treating him like shit) is a NORMAL PART OF MARRIAGE. NORMAL. That's how far the press, TLC and Kate were willing to go back then to defend Kate and ruin Jon

RoxyHelen said...

Oh jesus. Now TLC has a show called My kid's obsession? What kid doesn't have an "obession" growing up? Why is it being exploited on TV? Is it me, or are things getting worse and worse in the damn world? Yes I realise I'm talking in cliche but really, I don't know what to say anymore. I think I need to once again step away from TV for a while. Between Collin, the duggars molestation scandal, the willis molestation scandal, the "my kid's obsession" and the YT vloggers exploiting their kids, I am really needing a break.

TLC stinks said...

Jeanne, I recall at least one of the kids did not recognize Shoka. Since puppy markings change, entirely possible Shoka is not Shoka. I posted years ago I thought this was possible. A reputable breeder would not return a mistreated dog.

Brita pitchers take up a lot of fridge space. Silly when your fridge already has a water filter. Didn't she use those Brita Pritchard in another episode to bring water outside to the kids? TLC paid for those pitchers.

And someone posted, and I agree, that if you are expecting company, the house would be as neat as a pin. I totally believe that kitchen freak out was filmed on a different day than the party. Why were the decorations in bins ready to travel? How could she have booked the ice cream truck so quick? Brownlow just happened to be in town on that day with art supplies? Where was the rain? It just goes on and on. What a crappy Sweet 16 Party. Cara did not even want one. And at the bakery for the cake...Cara was rude and on her phone the whole time. Yeah, those girls are not on social media.

Jon had no choice but to return the dogs. He wasn't in a position at the time to take them and he did what was best. He was always the one who was outside playing the dogs before the divorce, not Kate. I have never seen a photo or video of her actually playing with any dog. And she never took Shoka with her on her runs. Everyone in my neighborhood are always out with their dogs. She is NOT a dog person. Covering up a dog with a blanket is not showing love. She's an idiot.

Agree Jon had no choice, in fact, if Jon did pul the trigger on getting the dogs out of that compound at the time, it was absolutely the right thing to do.
Based on what Robert has revealed, no dog belonged there. I have my doubts now, but at least there's evidence the dogs are living indoors among the family.

Good breeders vet you pretty thoroughly. 2 puppies to a couple with 8 small children would be a non starter.

Several of us have remarked on her clutter for years. I know this is going to sound very zen-like, but I firmly believe clutter can, for many people, contribute to anxiety. It may very well be causing anxiety for some of the kids, too. The whole a clean home is a happy home is true for many people. It's not the only thing she can do to promote more peace in her household, but if she would clean up and PUT THINGS AWAY, it IS one small step she can take to try to reduce the constant tension in that house.

Not saying the house shouldn't look lived in, but pitchers sitting on the counter and random tubs next to sinks should be PUT AWAY OUT OF SIGHT.

Tucker's Mom said...

I also think about the kids' bedrooms and how for so many years, they were boxes with beds in them. Kate made no attempt to make the kids happy and comfortable. I couldn't believe I saw mattresses on the floor!
WTH?
There was not enough furniture, first of all. Just rooms with beds and one dresser. No photos, art or awards. No evidence of what they loved. No place to sit.
How about a bean bag chair?
Sheesh.
I thought it weirder that as the kids got older, there still was no personalization, as if they either had no interest in making the bedrooms cool, fun and personal, or Kate didn't allow it.
My bedroom had stuff on shelves and pictures taped to my door and a place to sit and be comfy.
The G kids bedrooms were sparse, at best.

TLC stinks said...

I totally agree clutter makes one anxious. I absolutely cannot abide clutter yet my house looks lived in. You would think with ALL the cabinets she has, she could put away much of the stuff in her kitchen. Her bedroom appears the same way with stuff. And remember that CLOSET mess on the date with Vann?! Wow! Just goes to show her organationalish skills are FAKE, FAKE, FAKE.

I did see that big note posted on that chair during the Game Show but could not read it. Can you imagine living in a home with notes posted EVERYWHERE??? Is that supposed to show that she is organized? The only place I keep Post It Notes is on my desk or on my desktop for IMPORTANT reminders, never on furniture.

And that popcorn machine is uber expensive, by the way, and they don't make that good of popcorn. We bought a smaller one and it ended up for show only. Microwave popcorn is the best and convenient. She sure knows how to blow TLC's money.

TLC stinks said...

He is a backyard breeder. The story goes he was hired as extra security for the show or some such and he approached the Gosselins that he breeds German Shepherds. I've always wondered if TLC paid him to take the dogs back and kennel them for the future. We really don't know what happened to Nala because I don't believe anything Kate says. I hope Nala was adoptable. Kate did not want her back because, if I remember correctly, she snapped at Kate (who wouldn't?).

Formerly Duped said...

That tub is what TFW called 'dirty dish bin' iirc from older episodes. The kids put their used dishes ( other than paper plates!) in there, I guess to be rinsed before going into one of the dishwashers. It is rather unsightly but I think TFW has used this system for years. In a newer episode she had a clipboard and was asking Andrea if the dishwasher was 'running efficiently' among other tasks. So I guess the helpers she doesn't have need to rinse the gross dishes before running the dishwasher.

Kate's bedroom in particular seems messy and disorganized.

Absolutely true Tucker's Mom! The thing that stood out to me was the fact that the puppies were in cages in the backyard and not in the house with the family being socialized. When we got out boy we had to provide the name of our vet and we had to let her know about our experience with bulldogs and sign paperwork that stated if we decided we didn't want him (fat chance after the first time I picked him up!) he would go right back to her. We got a boy and got a limited AKC registration because we got him for love of the breed and not to breed (he's already been neutered). With the females, my breeder retains co-ownership if they new owner is going to breed. This is a common practice to ensure that puppies are not used by backyard breeders because she has final approval on the stud. So yeah, IMO he was a backyard breeder especially since the king shepherd is not an AKC recognized breed.

kris said...

A few random responses, lol
**I think the kids recognized Shoka but one of the girls forgot his name
**Those Brita filters are bizarre bc in the home maintenance episode she had the water tech come out to check her water and tell her what to do so she can get rid of 'all these filtery thingys'. After he tested, he told her her water was good and she didn't need them. So I'm not sure why she keeps them.
**Lastly - the black tub on her counter. Those are SO gross! I use one when we go camping to do my dishes in and they get slimy along the inside and get all this gunk built up under it. In order to keep it clean, she'd have to wash and dry it daily, so what's the point?

She's very bizarre in the running of her household. It's like she makes it more complicated. She sure works harder not smarter instead of working smarter not harder.

Andrea said...

Does anybody remember Kate stating in one of the episodes that Andrea was there all summer? If so, how dare she say that she has no babysitter or helper.

TLC stinks said...

Dirty dish bin...why add the extra step? I think it's nasty looking and probably smells. And if you don't rinse and put in the dishwasher and run every evening, attracts pests too. The kids are old enough to rinse and properly put their dishes into the dishwasher! Does she leave this mess for the "not-a-helper"? Sounds like it.

RoxyHelen. Kate ordered Jon t get rid of the dogs. She left them in cages alongside their poop & vomit & urine. The Twins had to beg Kate to allow them to feed the dogs. Robert and Jon were eye witnesses to the filth those dogs lived in because of Kate. She a sociopath listening to thedogs howl and cry. Just like the kids used to howl & cry after she beat them. Here a video of her at some North or South Carolina women's show telling how & why she got rid of the dogs.

Jeanne said...

I give my nieces a hard time about the dirty dishes all the time. You walk past the dishwasher to put your dishes in the sink. Put them in the dishwasher! I am not your slave! Kate makes everything so hard. You need to scrape food off of dishes. But with newer dishwashers, you don't have to rinse off plates, silverware, glasses. The kids could each put their plate and glass in the dishwasher and half the cleanup is done. Instead they have to do the work of stacking it all in the tub just so the servant can put it in the dishwasher.

Jamesvader1194 said...

@Sad but true I remember that whole conspiracy theory about Shoka.There was a crazy hater who suggested that shoka died choking on an easter egg and Kate secretly got another dog that resemble shoka.Im not defending Kate but neither hoffman or anyone so far has found any evidence to suggest that Kate got another dog or that shoka got killed.

Jeanne said...

I hold both Jon and Kate responsible for what happened to those kids through the early filming years. They both knew those kids were filmed in private situations, Kate beat them but Jon knew about it, etc. But I don't buy the whole poor Kate, Jon cheated on her, he's awful she's a saint. That marriage was clearly over. They weren't treating each other like married people should. Did Kate or Jon sleep around first? Who knows. Does it even matter? Not really. When you decide to get a house with a separate apartment for the husband, no one is betrayed by an affair. But of course Kate's fans see her as pure and perfect.

It really is amazing to me how entrenched the "Jon cheated on K8 so she had to get a divorce" line is among the sheeple. You see it on her FB page all the time. And of course, because he's a cheater, he's also a liar, so whatever defense he tries to mount (such as The Truth about the end of the marriage), it all falls on deaf sheeple ears. I have to hand it to them, TLC and K8 really did a remarkable job of selling this fiction to the masses.

to giving back and paying things forward! She's so blessed! Maybe she'll sell the popcorn maker at the "cornsignment" shop. Tee hee!

So, will Gladys emerge tonight to pester TFW and TLC? Stay tuned!

Tucker's Mom said...

It really is amazing to me how entrenched the "Jon cheated on K8 so she had to get a divorce" line is among the sheeple
*****
Kate was portrayed as the poor, cheated-upon wife whose no-good louse of a man-child husband just up and left her with 8 kids.
Go back and look at the People magazine covers Kate got. This hausfrau from PA farm country somehow became a big "get" for the likes of People magazine.
They got America HOOKED on the Gosselin saga and the headlines just tugged at the heart and galvanized every man-hating, been-done-did-wronged woman out there.
Boy, they really whipped up the Jon hate, didn't they?
Of course, Jon was doing a lot of things wrong and looked like he was a man in mid-life-crisis mode at the age of 32.

Leslie said...

Wow! I watched youtube of Kate at the Women's Conference and boy her kicking of her leg is so obnoxious. Link posted above. Her leg never stops.

How far she has fallen. I read an article on yahoo about Collin and the game show. There were about 120 comments and I would say about 95% of those were very negative.

@Tucker's Mom Here's the thing when jon gave the interview talking about how he never cheated,no where did he ever blamed Kate or said how she was the one who cheated first.He simply said that he didn't cheat and that the marriage ended between them.When asked about if there was a relationship between Kate and steve he said something like how he had suspicions about him but he never accuse them of being in a relationship.

foxy said...

I just caught abut 5 minutes of the show Outdaughtered. The husband is so effeminate and whiny. Just my opinion and I know I will catch it, but I wonder if he is hiding his true sexual identity. He got angry about something and huffed off like a little girl and his wife told him not to be so dramatic. These people will end up divorced just like the others on TLC.

It may just be me but I don't rinse my dishes, silverware or anything else before I put them in the dishwasher. I run my dishwasher every couple of days and everything still comes out clean.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Tucker's Mom (#120), it's incredible how TFW emerged as the victim when she ended the marriage. Knowing full well the divorce was coming up (according to her own timeline), she participated in that sham vow renewal: scoring a posh vacation, and a crossover TLC episode to boot. And, worst of all, looked those sweet children in the eye and told them Mommy and Daddy would be together forever. She is a horrible mother.

I've always thought Jon's said the right things about Kate and Steve and has stopped short of accusations.
Even if Steve and Kate never got physical, they were emotional and inappropriate and for all the world to see, Jon was cuckolded.
Steve stepped in and usurped Jon's position as head of that household. I wouldn't go as far as saying that Jon abdicated, but he didn't have the maturity and manhood at the time to tell Steve to f*ck off and never darken the doors of the Gosselin household ever again.

It's my understanding that you should not rinse and clean dishes and utensils before putting them in the dishwasher, because the cleaning agent clings to the food particles and helps clean them.

Tucker's Mom (#128), if an outsider was trying to guess which one was having an affair, I think smart money would be on the one who completely transformed herself physically. Whether there was ever a physical relationship between TFW and Steve or not, I believe there was an emotional intimacy that remains today.
And I think she changed her looks for him.

Is is very whiny and spends more time on his hair than he does changing diapers. Todd Chrisley is an odd creature, but he is funny as hell. His daughter Savannah is beautiful. He's on Steve Harvey every once in a while. I do like that he expects the best out of his kids and doesn't put up w/ bs. But it is reality TV. So I take it w/ a grain of salt. He was very welcoming/loving of his mixed raced granddaughter and they took her into the home when the parent were not able to care for her.

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

On June 26, 2008, Kate received an email from a gentleman named Michael expressing how excited he and his wife were when they spotted some toys they had sent to the Gosselin children in the background of an episode of Jon & Kate Plus Ei8ht.

Michael said they were thrilled to see that the kids had received them and seemed to enjoy them. He then told Kate that he and his wife were celebrating the recent birth of their 3rd child “… same name as one of yours- Aaden.”

He gave Kate their phone number and said that if she ever had a spare moment, his wife would love to chat and introduce herself.

It is understandable that Kate should be extremely careful when dealing with strangers, but that certainly didn’t stop her from accepting their gifts. Her greatest annoyance was that the gift-givers spelled their child’s name the same way as one of Kate’s boys.

Kate complained, “These are the people that sent us the christian toys..... notice they used our spelling of Aaden... how annoying... fans naming their kids our kids names!”

Apparently, Kate thinks the names she chose for her children should have been retired, never to be used for another child again.

Outdaughtered seems to be the hot new show. They always get ratings over a million. And the babies aren't even 2 yet. Even Little People, Big World gets a million which is great for an old show.

Then there's six figures for Kate. Even if she does squeeze more shows out of TLC, she's long past her glory days.

&&&&

I called him as gay when I first read their how we met story. Read it. He makes HER wait while he gets ready for the date, and he does weird stuff like without warning her, introducing her to his family on the first date. The gesture itself may be fine but not warning her is very inconsiderate. It's like he doesn't have a baseline understanding of how to woo a girl, which someone gay might be missing. He's either just not that into her, or gay. If a girlfriend were telling me that dating story (read it, you have to see the whole thing) I would tell her dump his ass. Six kids later!

Other forums are overwhelmingly pegging him as gay. A shame. He's going to wake up 10 years from now and realize he wants to be with a man and leave her, and she'll realize her whole relationship was a sham.

On another note how did they find the money for the multitude of international trips they did before kids? They worked at Target.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


Dirty dish bin...why add the extra step? I think it's nasty looking and probably smells.

Agree, very unnecessary. Most dishes should go directly in the dishwasher. If there's anything left they can pile up in the sink. It's also very unsanitary. Her kids seem to get sick a lot. That may be why. Even trace amounts of food left in that bin can cause illness. Unless you are washing it and disinfecting it after every meal, you are harboring food poisoning in there.

And it will be a rating bonanza for TLC! Maybe the Buzz's will beat the Gosselin 10M viewer record when they filmed the implosion of their marriage and fracture of the family unit.
Good stuff!

Also, do the Buzz's have a nanny that they allow to be revealed on their show? The scuttle out there is that TLC gives them a full-time nanny, but they keep her off screen so that it doesn't appear they have help.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


It would suck the warmth out of a home to have instructions plastered everywhere.
After all these years, why would Kate have instructions everywhere if it wasn't for paid help rotating through like a revolving door?

&&&&

Notes like that are, as a rule, passive aggressive. No matter how lovingly you may say it, being bombarded with orders like that all the time, instead of just talking to a person in person about your expectations, is very rude. When I was a nanny, I spoke every day to the mother, father, the assistant or all three about their expectations for the day. Sometimes in person, sometimes over the phone if we weren't going to see each other. What they wanted me to do around the house, and what the kids would do where and when. It was all very clear, and if anything got too complicated, times and such, *I* would write it down if I needed to. I would be very uncomfortable to instead find a bunch of notes everywhere ordering me about. It's cold, it's inattentive, it's lazy.

Oh, and I wasn't asked to do excessive "chores" like Andrea is. I was the nanny, not the maid, and was treated as such, with the expectation my focus would be on the children, not the mopping and dusting.

I actually think a fair amount of people really are watching just to see where this goes. Everybody thinks he's gay, so this won't end well.

By the way I don't want to offend anyone, when I say it's a shame, I don't mean it's a shame he's gay. I mean it's a shame if he's gay, he's not with someone also gay. Instead he's taken up with a woman and brought kids into it. It's 2017, this kind of coverup is no longer necessary. Naturally they're uber religious. Figures.

I have a feeling she is trying to to cheap out on getting a maid, which with all those kids and that house is necessary if her lazy self won't do it herself.

That kind of treatment is completely unacceptable at any agency I know of. You either hire a nanny, a maid, or both. You don't try to get two for the price of one. Someone cleaning all the time can't possibly keep a good eye on children. For the agency it's more of a liability than anything else, but it's also what is right and fair, and shows respect both to the nanny and the children.

Outdaughtered's finale was last night, and they already know they're getting another season? Officially announced by TLC and heralded by a magazine article? If I were K8, I'd be pretty unsettled by this news.

TLC stinks said...

Flimsy, I agree Kate changed her looks for Steve. His wife has long blond hair. His wife is overweight so Kate made sure she was slim and trim. Hell, Steve even helped her pick out the size of her fake boobs. I think in the beginning they were hot and heavy. Just too many circumstances where they acted like a couple. Not so much anymore.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I didn't watch any of the episodes, but is it safe to boil down this past K+8 season to...vacations, fancy trips, a dash of volunteering while on a fancy trip, expensive activities, a birthday party, and a game show? Oh, and a missing child? Sounds like a warm, wonderful, relatable family show to me.

TLC stinks said...

When the twins and Kate were shopping at Michael's and Mady got frustrated with Kate, she did the exact same hand facial thing that Kate does. Her mannerisms and attitude are totally from Kate. I also noticed when Kate had her freak out about her missing cart with her purse (staged), they exited the store and the camera only focused on the twins with their cart. I guess we were to think there was only ONE cart jammed with stuff.

And as Kate would say "Oh my word!" with Kate's squealing about the lighted letters C & M. Is this a 42 year old woman?

The more I read on Facebook, the more the long time fans are fed up and no longer watching. Very few defend Kate or the twins. If this is the hook Kate is going for, she's failing. A 16 year old can be independent and self-assured without being rude and obnoxious.

Realtime Mom said...

I agree Kate changed her looks for Steve. No amount of cosmetic surgery can fix what's wrong with her. She's a nasty woman who constantly finds her children and family lacking. She is a miserable hag inside and it shows on the outside. Who would want that? This is my opinion based on what she spent years putting it out there. Terrible human being and the worst mother.

TLC stinks said...

Of course Outdaughtered knows they've been renewed. Like I said there is a production calendar many months in advance. Kate knows already. That tweet about "10 years and counting" was her way of acting like she doesn't have a clue and she wants her remaining fans to remain invested in the family. That's her only hope to convince TLC there is interest. It's over if they do not film during the long February school break.

TLC stinks said...

Oh, during a couch interview (cannot remember if Game Show or Sweet 16), notice how Kate's mouth looks when she speaks. Kinda numb on her right side. Recent injection??? She's definitely been keeping up with Botox for those frown lines. She's been doing this for years and those injections are expensive. The aging, though, shows in her neck. That's the giveaway of the cosmetic injections only in the face. "De-Aging" my sweet patootie!

Of course I'm not saying TFW shouldn't care about her looks. And it is certainly a part of her job as a, heaven help us, TV performer, is to present an attractive appearance. But it seems to have been at the expense of a lot of other things. She could redo her entire body from roots to toenails, and there would still be no there there.

I can't remember where I saw this. I don't get TLC and I don't read anything about the 600-lb show. But I think one of their big "hooks" this season is a pregnancy "scare." I don't know where to begin with this. First off, this woman is in a relationship with someone? Second, in this day and age, and with her obvious health issues, why would you not be on birth control? I can't imagine a doctor would let this pass if this woman is sexually active with a man. And third, how many people can really relate to this? I am at a loss to understand.

Maybe she needs to level the playing field and vie against kids in kindergarten. Perhaps the score will be closer.

How dare they sneak in behind her and steal her glory! Just wondering..........

A few have asked her on Twitter if she's watching it; one or two have even commented on how apropos it would be of her to give them advice (as if, lol). Of course, she never deigns to reply to these comments. Other multiples families are beneath her notice.

In Touch has a new article up about her strict demands when the kids return from visiting Jon.

There is a small picture of her on the latest cover over the caption: "Monster Mom Kate Hits New Low With Her Kids".

If only this wasn't one of the busiest years ever for me...I would so do it. Alas, wasting that kind of time on K Gosselin instead of focusing on my career right now, is downright insane. Maybe next year, if she hasn't completely disappeared from the media.

Aw, it was just rhetorical. So many more valuable things to do than that!
It just seems like Kate's bitching is getting worse. In the strictest of confidences, sure, go ahead and wish you could run away. But, to the media and broadcasting to millions? No!

Kate's advice to Mrs. Buzz?
Never, ever, every let your husband off the leash and for the love of everything holy, if he does slip the lead, make sure TLC circles the wagons around *you* and immediately begin the process of delegitimizing Mr. Buzz as a man, a husband and as a father.
In a nutshell, napalm the sh*t out of him!

From the In Touch website:

"Kate is especially unyielding when it comes to the kids visiting their father. “Kate says no clothing or belongings can be brought from her house to Jon’s house, so the kids arrive for visitation [at Jon’s] in their school uniforms and change into clothes Jon has for them when they get to his house,” the insider explains. “Then they put their uniforms back on before head­ing to their mom’s house.”

The insider also mentions that the star is vigilant about checking for cellphones, as none of the kids are allowed to have one. “So after they visit with their dad, she lines the kids up and pats them down for cellphones.”

“She has these insane practices and rules to ensure she has total control of everything her kids do,” the source adds.

My gut says they've got a real source here. The specifics don't sound out of line with what we've heard about Kate's control before.
Un-be-lievable that a mother would refuse to send her children with so much as a change of underwear.
The pat downs for phones? I totally believe this. Jon could easily get them prepaid cell phones, and I've wondered if he's tried to supply them.
Kate would never allow the tups such access to Jon.
I hope Jon gets a judge to order that each child may have a phone if they wish. It doesn't have to be an Iphone-just something to make calls to their dad whenever they want.

I wonder if TLC has anything to do with the slow drip-drip of negative K8 stories. Just more ammo if they're telling her she's cancelled. Not that I think they have to say anything to her at all, all of these reality people are "at will" employees.

Wetpaint's take on the InTouch article on constant surveillance includes "...she runs a very tight ship at home and has rules up the wazoo..."

I'm getting a good laugh at all the people commenting on the "Outdaughtered" FB page about the fact that the Busby's went to some sporting goods store to buy luggage for their trip to NYC and it cost a little over $200 per piece of luggage. Everyone is crying that they should have gone to Walmart or Target, lol. People, TLC pays for the luggage so why wouldn't they get the best? Ridiculous that as long as reality tv has been around that people don't realize none of this comes out of the 'stars' pockets, no matter how many times they'll 'complain' about the price or break out their personal credit card. Geesh.

Turn out the lights (#181), and no true couponer goes to a register at Target or Michael's without coupons. Michael's has coupons to cut from their weekly ads, or you can load them on your phone. And Target has their weekly Cartwheel deals, which can add up to amazing savings.

But what the heck did TFW care -- it was all on TLC's dime. Because realest reality.

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

But, but, but, coupons are like cash! lol!

I think that she had more than 500 dollars to spend at each store. I think 1K to 2K or may even more. By using a coupon, it would stretch the budget money so she could get more free stuff!

I think the 3 sheet sets cost with tax at least 200 dollars. That's just the sheets. The wheel, the wasted salmon burgers, the venue for the party, all of the party supplies, the cake, the money booth, the money, the items to purchase that you won in the booth.

With everything, including cost of production the whole ball of wax was 150K plus her pay?

Should of did a cross over with MTV and a Sweet 16 party.

You know you have hit rock bottom when you grab 3 sets of sheets and "use them" for the game show night filming and then put them to work as sheets for other beds in the house.

Wow, how the mighty have fallen.

Jon said years ago Kate didn't allow any stuff to go back and forth-- and that included GIFTS.

Come on Jon, let us know how the custody issue is coming along!

Kate's got to be one of the meanest most spiteful people I've seen.
Bizarre and scary.
She's fallen a longgggg way from her bible-thumping days.

About the Tub `O Dishes sitting on the counter.

Agree. Totally nasty. That is the first thing I thought of was it would have to be washed and dried every day to keep the germs at bay.

My mother has a 17 year old dishwasher that she bought showroom new and she has always soaked the dishes, washed them and then run them through the dishwasher.

She says it still smells like a brand new one. Not as strong as showroom floor, but still there after 17 years. She said, I don't intend to let any grease get my dishwasher!

Tucker's Mom (#193), every word of that piece rang true to me. And even if it's not true, how lousy of a mother are you that people would believe it?

Seriously, if you google your own name and Monster Mom and find, oh, more than one article about you, YOU ARE A HORRIBLE MOTHER.
