Discussion Thread: A Haunting at the Gosselins 7/10/2017

The Gosselins invite their friends over for a Halloween party and turn their barn into a haunted house; Kate stresses about party planning, food prep and costumes while trying to deal with guests arriving before everything is ready.

I'm tying to figure out a motive behind TLC's odd statement acting all concerned about the family and feeling obligated and invested to them. Everybody knows networks don't really care about their talent and will drop them just like that when need be. I wonder if they're putting out feelers the end is near but trying to make sure they get out of the severance unscathed, blaming it on schedules and things not working out.

The busy schedules excuse was silly. Kate will drop everything to film these kids and they surely know that. They KNOW scheduling is not an issue, but why pretend it is but for to distract and deflect?

Also I love their statement about Little People coming back, as if the audience clamoring for a return changed their minds. They must think viewers are stupid or at least not paying attention. They worked out the lawsuit, obviously, and that's why the show is back. Not because they finally realized the audience really wanted it back--what a whopper.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


Good luck with that. They were/are minors. Kate had the authority to sign any and all contracts. Even if they have standing, what evidence would they provide to show that their childhoods were usurped? It would be a long and difficult court battle.


&&&&

I'm a little more optimistic about this. There's always a way to argue a contract was not proper. At the very least I'm betting a good lawyer can work out some kind of lawsuit where they didn't get all their money. There's too much money changing hands not to figure out someone to blame. It could be coming, we'll see.

The statements sound eerily familiar. When TLC cancelled Kate Plus 8, they blah blah blah'd about keeping in touch and this won't be the end and we'll check in from time to time.

Sounds like another kiss off to me. Sounds like they don't want to come right out and say they've got no plans to film because they got a whole lot of blow back last time.

TLC is keeping their options open, probably knowing Kate will be available whenever they want.

We'll see if Kate gives a "see you next season" wink wink after the third episode.

Susan1956 said...

Surely TFMJG must be worried, on some very, very, very, very, deep level, about her future on the big TeVee. But I also bet she's pissed on so many other levels. I don't get the feeling that StevieBoy is around that much anymore.

He was probably around for the ski trip, but there's no need for him at the compound. Any PA would be capable of getting the non-disclosures signed and opening the gates.

According to the episode synopsis, some of TFMJG's stress is caused by the arrival of the guests before everything is ready. Did TLC open the gates too soon/set poor Schmoopy up like they did in the RV episode?

Layla said...

Admin,
from reading the interview, some things that stood out are the fact that they "hope" to follow the family and there's "nothing to announce". That means they are not filming and have not contracted for a new season. TLC has no problem announcing upcoming seasons of their shows, but there's nothing to announce with K+8. Also, the "8 against Kate" thing...shouldn't that be "7 against Kate"? Unless C is back home, but you'd think there would be some major hints being dropped in order to increase viewership.

It sounds like the last cancellation They weren't filming but would catch up with the family in the form of specials. That seems to be the same message, just stated differently. But the resounding message, although not directly stated, is that they are not filming and don't have any new seasons to announce. Wow. Can I just say--we saw this coming! The lack of advertising and the very obvious drop in production budget were dead give-aways. This show is toast.

GollyGee said...

If you're talking about Kate taking and spending their money that is supposed to go to them, then I would think that they'd have a case. However, just to sue them for taking away their childhoods, I think that would be difficult to prove, no matter who testified.

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

I am talking about abuse that TFW dished out day after day. Abuse that they very possibly witnessed. They had to have seen a lot of it. If she would bashed EMERIL with a red spatula on camera for the world to see, what did she do in front of the crew?

And what about Collin. Dear Lord, I hope he is in a safe place, happy and doing and eating well.

Many quit and went to other shows because of it.

I believe a lot of people that did sign a ND with her were threatened with hell and damnation if they talked and losing everything they have.

I remember someone years ago who was on Jerry Springer said that, If we had cold feet and didn't go out on stage and confront whoever, we signed a contract that we had to pay 80K to the production company for loss of whatever.

Layla said...

It will be interesting to see what Kate does if there is a prolonged period with no filming. Last time she went on the media rounds every couple months or so to keep her face out there. Now, it seems, nobody is interested in talking to her. Definitely no co-hosting gigs. People magazine didn't even cover the tups' 13th birthday, so it's doubtful there will be more covers in the near future. So, is there enough money to live on? If not, then what happens? The old "I can't work because child care is too expensive" argument won't work now. The kids are teenagers. They don't need day care. M&C are old enough to drive, so she doesn't really even need to be there for bus drop-offs and pickups. Things are about to get very interesting.

Tizzie said...

"TLC Hopeful for More ‘Kate Plus 8’ " WHY would they be "hopeful" for more?

They've bought back The Little Couple because people wanted them back. But apart from a handful of "fans", most people DO NOT want to see Kate Plus 8 back and yet TLC refuse to listen and keep filming and airing new episodes, even when there's NOTHING happening in the Gosselin family that's worthy of filming.

Dmasy said...

I don't recall how old Kate is. However, she is old enough that she should be embarrassed by 3 programs staged around her being stressed to a mess. Embarrassed.

It's a simple Halloween party not the loading of the Santa Maria as it heads for an unknown destination.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Susan1956 (#4), and what's so utterly ridiculous
about these "oh noes, the guests are early!" scenes is that she's on a TV show! It's not like if you or I were home getting things ready, not quite dressed, with the house not quite up to snuff yet, and suddenly some guests appeared.
TFW isn't some frazzled housefrau powering through preparations with one eye on the clock, worried about disappointing her guests. She is a surrounded by a HOUSEFUL of crew members -- most of whom have probably been there since the crack of dawn. It's the unrealest reality.

This really is the only "hook" they have now, isn't it? Watch Kate stress. Watch kids mock her. Repeat ad nauseum.

Dmasy (#10), agreed. And what makes it even more maddening is that the fans (well, one in particular) seem to hold TFW up as some paragon of virtue and strength.

Kate's bread and butter has been talking about the kids and her feud with Jon. That latter being a really big draw, when she was a tabloid queen.
Now, the kids are just sort of there. Getting older, but not more interesting. Collin is gone who knows where.
It's very off putting, really. Talking to Kate, trying to get some information, some assurances about her son, Collin, and all she ever is, is cagey.
Aloof, even.
Definitely not attached, affected or heartbroken.

I just don't know how anyone can have Kate on a show without addressing the elephant in the room.

I also don't know how anyone can sit across from her and act like it's not totally effed up!

&&&&

And this is where they are using Kate again. Invested in her? Bullshit. It's to their benefit to string her along, keep her on the back burner. They clearly see her as good filler, something "new" to fill up a timeslot and get a passing grade on ratings that they would otherwise have to plug in with re-runs at a loss. But if they tell her she's probably done, she MIGHT move on and commit herself elsewhere. They don't want to take that risk, in case they need her. A wedding and/or pregnancy could pop up in the next five years or so, and they'll want to cash in on that. This is a win-win for them, because it leaves them an out in case they need her last minute. They know her, and they know when they say sit, stay, come, she obeys.

It also keeps them on a month-to-month tenancy. No obligation to her, no contracts to worry about, and they can cut her off whenever they like, or pop back in to film whenever they like.

I called this a long time ago, she will never officially be "cancelled" even if behind closed doors, she's cancelled.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


With Collin gone, who would take care of them? I think this was actually the right thing for her to do, as you know no one else in that family would have been prepared to step up and do the work necessary to maintain the chickens.


&&&&


It was the right thing to do for the chickens, but I worry about the psychological damage to Collin. Even if he never comes home, he's going to eventually hear about the chickens being gone, and it could crush him.

I still am shaking my head at the producer saying the boys are never to be found when work is to be done, and Kate agreeing with him. Freaking asshats. Be a normal mother and defend your boys against comments like that for god sake.

Admin, I've meant for weeks to give you props for that picture of Boo from "Monsters Inc." with her glazed-over face in this post! And the "Back To

But what network would want her? If she'd had any talent at all, she would have made the jump years ago to a TV gig that didn't use her children as the main draw.

Formerly Duped said...

I just read Jon celebrated the tups' 13th birthday with a cookout for just Aaden, Joel, Hannah and Leah. No twins, no Alexis, of course no Collin. This is really really horrible and I feel worried for Alexis. I'm almost glad Collin is out of there . (Sorry if this is old- it was new to me. I've been on and off here due to many dog problems and house projects))

Layla said...

What network would want her? None of them did back in 2011-2014, when she was a lot more popular and relevant than she is now. She also has a long track record of low ratings from this run on TLC. She has nowhere else to go. She already failed at blogging, running, a coupon site, and her cookbook was a spectacular failure. She'll sit around and wait for TLC to call her. She has nothing else.

Kate is a twit said...

I just flipped over to TLC for a minute or so, and they actually have a count down clock to the premiere of Outdaughtered.

I don't recall them ever doing that for any series, even when J & K Plus 8 were in their prime.

TLC now has a preview of the whole(ha ha) "season" on their website. Kate bitching and moaning about the Halloween party, Kate fretting about the skiing and then during the birthday party apparently there's a snake or something in the grass and Kate doing her typical jumping and screaming freakout.

They show a "graveyard" and some of the "tombstones" have the kids' names on them. Surprise--Collin's name is on one of them. He isn't there for the party, but she can still exploit him by using his name.

But why take the risk of the SMALL chance she might find something else? There's no downside from TLC's perspective to string her along, even if they're only mitigating against a very tiny risk. I guarantee they want to be able to pop back in the second one of the kids gets engaged, which some of them are likely to do early given their host of issues. Abused kids looking for love for various reasons often turn to marriage early. They want to be able to pop in at a moment's notice, so they'll string along.

It is very, very sad that Alexis won't even go over to Jon's to see her father for her birthday. Another birthday with a card, present and empty chair.
One thing is for sure. It doesn't have to be this way.
Kate isn't enough of a grownup to put her foot down and tell her kids that their father loves them and they need him, too.

I made a simple comment that I think MAYBE she might be confusing the two social media platforms, and you decided to make fun of me in frankly, a rather nasty manner. I said nothing about her committing a grave sin, nor was I dramatic. Your remarks are completely unnecessary and certainly very immature. She is apparently now on Twitter, where she hasn't been since APRIL 10.

In fact, even one of her fans agrees about the odd lack of twitter promotion, and told her so nicely:

christiansnyderYou should tweet before the show starts so people know to watch 😜 can I be your head of marketing & advertising? 😂 after all that's what I'm studying in school! Lol kidding but I just want people to tune in!

I was not the only one to find this odd.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

The problem with four of these kids being estranged is that from what little we've heard them talk about, namely Mady, they have no good reason for it. This is a classic symptom of an alienated kid. They can't really say a reason. And unless Kate has given them a darn, darn good reason to estrange him (and not just, he tried to stop me from exploiting you), they will grow up and start thinking for themselves. And then the daddy issues start, and then they realize the estrangement wasn't righteous. And that's when some of them may very likely turn on HER and blame HER.

Again, the woman plays checkers, not chess. Sure, she's got four of the kids all to herself and screw Jon for these ten years or so. But we're talking 30-40 more years ahead where one or more of these kids may very well want nothing to do with her, nor will they want her to have anything to do with her grandchildren.

I don't know, Kate, sure you want to take the chance?

Nope, we don't all lose it. Please don't speak for everyone.

Being frustrated, upset, etc., from time to time is normal. You deal with it and move on. But if you find yourself losing it even just a few times, chances are there might be something very wrong with you. The way Kate reacts to normal ups and downs is NOT normal, NOT okay, and please do not try to rationalize it as normal. It's not.

Watching #KatePlus8 and can't help but always notice how rude and cringy most of her kids are. Apples don't fall far from the tree...😟😟😟😟

If #KatePlus8 is such a controlling self centered bitch when the cameras are rolling, what is she like when the cameras are gone? #bigbitch

And of course...
Who else remembers,,Hannah pooped in hannahs underwear #KatePlus8

These people definitely have her number.

If they had a 7am call time, and most of the day was going to be eaten up with filming, well, genius, get most of the work done the day BEFORE. Moms all over the planet work full-time jobs and still get things done. She's never truly happy or content, is she?

TFW would be a disastrous party planner. She's not a fun person. She's not joyful. A party planner has to tune in to the wants and needs of the guest of honor -- does that sound like something TFW is remotely suited for?

The only time TFW seems really, truly happy is when she is in the spotlight ALONE, getting attention and approval.

TLC put up a couple of more clips on the FB page. Comments are pretty scathing. I hope they're getting the message. It's time to pull the plug.

Seriously!

Is she like those people who blame being late to work every day on traffic? The traffic is always there, so.

Over and over she doesn't budget enough time. Over and over we see her seemingly planning major events at the last minute and expecting things to work out. She's 41 years old, time to grow up and realize last minute long term doesn't work and never has, for ANYONE.

For a major party, you add at least several weeks of lag time for any snafus. You also do as much as you possibly can ahead of time. I'm pretty convinced that she thinks she's got to run around like nuts for the plot of the show. Except, it's affecting other people, it upsets her kids. Grow up and be a responsible adult and stop living your life for 1.2 million strangers. It's really getting pathetic.

When I tracked the commercials shown during Kate + 8 last season, it seemed there were a lot more commercials for TLC programs as well as sometimes 3 or 4 commercials for the same product shown. This episode there were only 11 TLC commercials and non-TLC commercials were only repeated twice. However, I wonder if the non-TLC advertisers realize their ads were shown twice during this s***fest. Looks like Rattled is coming back so TLC must be looking for a family with younger multiples as the Outdaughtered quints are getting old. LOL.

I know nothing about how this works, but is it possible they were stacking the commercials during Kate Plus 8, so they could have less commercials during the other more popular shows sandwiching it? Is that allowed?

Everyone seems to have noticed the incredible amount of commercials.

I haven't watched. I like to only watch once, for the recap.

**********
That's a good point and something I will check out in the next few days. I just don't have the stomach to sit thru a rerun of Counting On.

I know that advertisers, usually thru an ad agency, usually buy 'blocks' of advertising which does not specify when/on what program the ad will be shown. But the advertiser can specify if they don't want their program shown during a particular program as we've all seen with the Duggar scandal and other scandals on other cable and even network shows.

Sad but true said...

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 88

If K8 was preceded tonight by the Duggars, that might explain why so many ads cropped up in her hour. There are comparatively few brands letting their ads run on the Duggar show, so maybe TLC is airing them during K+8. I doubt it's because many advertisers asked for her show particularly.

Layla said...

I am thinking about that Entertainment Tonight clip I saw, and the hosts saying that K+8 was cancelled last September. Now, having read the interview with the VP at TLC, I think the people at ET had it right. They knew before the rest of the world. Maybe the fact that they mentioned the cancellation is the reason why TLC spoke out to smooth things over. TLC doesn't seem to be into the idea of announcing or publicizing cancellations like they used to be. Remember when Toby Willis was arrested? TLC had cancelled his show months before but never announced it. With K+8, I think they already had the Halloween episode, they wanted to film the kids turning 13, and threw the ski trip in for good measure. I wonder how Kate reacted when she realized the new season she boasted about only turned out to be 3 episodes. I bet she lost it.

Sounds like this whole episode was a non-stop meltdown by Kate. Maybe that's why it didn't air with last season--they had to tweak it more. Too much of her freak-outs and tizzies would turn viewers off, and fast. So maybe they just went with what they had and filled the extra time with commercials. They just couldn't find anything interesting to add to it.

Sheeple Herder said...

I watched part of the episode and here are a few observations.
During the part I watched:

1. You wouldn't know Collin existed. Never heard a thing about him.
2. Kate's attitude sucks the fun out of everything.
3. At one point she says something about not being able to get everything done since she doesn't have "a house cleaner, a babysitter, and assistants". She goes on to blather that she does everything by herself. Teenagers need a babysitter???
4. Cara continues to be sullen and silent most of the time. I feel so bad for her.

I hope there is a therapy fund set up for these kids. They are going to need it. That household is a red hot mess. I don't think I could sit through an entire episode if I tried. Just more of the same. At least Kate admitted that the haunted barn was done by TLC people.

GollyGee said...

Hey, Layla, that makes a LOT of sense.

JustMissy said...

What a crap fest. Kate is such an ingrate. Just awful! I bet Kate heard there were only 3 episodes this "season" right before she did that riveting promo at the end of the first sneak peak - she was pissed!

Leslie said...

Did anybody notice during the promos for next week's show that one of the kids called out Collin's name? It was when they were on the snow. I took that to mean Collin was there skiing. Could he have been home for the Christmas break?

JustMissy said...

One more thing... That house is a mess. And not just because she was getting ready for a party. And the dogs are in the crates a lot and have to be let out. So sad.

Susan1956 said...

If K8 was preceded tonight by the Duggars, that might explain why so many ads cropped up in her hour.
********************
She was preceded by the Duggars and I saw a little bit of the public proposal to Joy-Anna. The preview of next week's show is a Duggar-style Newlywed/Trivia game. But with a non-family member as the host and it appears to take place in a studio. Oh, joy--TLC is definitely running out of ideas. Schmoopy will definitely be pissed when she sees the planning and expense that went into the Duggars' game.
**********************
I think a lot of Schmoopy's comments about the lack of hired help or any help at all is because she has had to make some cuts in household help and it seems TLC is not stepping up to take care of her as before. I know they put the haunted house together after she and the kids 'played' at cleaning the barn and provided the people behind the window, but they didn't step in to finish the party prep and she probably expected them to do that so she could spend hours primping. Yet she had time to make up her eyes. And were those little surgical booties she had on her feet when she went thru the haunted house?
*************************
If ET is right and the show was canceled last September, did they hold off telling her? Because I thought she was very full of herself, more than usual, in this episode. Like maybe she didn't believe it or the upcoming ski trip with StevieBoy pacified her for the moment. Then again, she was getting in little digs at the crew.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Ahhh I get it, they need Schmoops to pick up the slack for all the ads that refuse to support child molestors. So that's why they string her along, she's got to capture their problem advertising. Well, this is the first time I've ever seen her take one for the team. RBI! Well done.

I rewatched the promo for next week and I didn't hear anyone call out Collin's name. I did hear someone yell "Cara", but not Collin.

BTW, the skiing episode was filmed during their spring break this year at the beginning of March.

Tizzie said...

On the Kate Plus 8 FB page, a fan was gushing about how much she LOVES Kate. WTF???

Jon and Kate divorced in 2009 and it's now 2017. The fact that Kate is still single all these years later suggests that NO GUY wants to be with her.

But since she doesn't want to admit that SHE is the problem, she's keeping up the BS story about the kids wanting her to date. At 13 and 16 they'd have probably figured out for themselves that she's the problem.

And I'm sure that the kids themselves will not be in a hurry to date until they're 18 and out of Ms Gosselin's Home For Exploited Children where she will have no control over their dating and love lives.

NIOP said...

Flashback Friday, October 4, 2013 Schmoops (haha,love that handle for her) "wakes up dreaming every day for a second chance" Well her dream came true and she messed up again.

Young 17-year-old uber Canadian fan Paige went to see Kate when she was on two Toronto morning shows hawking her crook book and got to meet her idol it cost her more than $1000 on new clothes, manicure, pedicure, hotel and gas, Kate and Steve didn't even offer to buy her a cup of coffee. And still tonight she was on Twitter trying to get Kate to acknowledge her. It was actually painful to watch her get all excited and then ...nothing. Silly Paige sent out a video (why????) of herself sobbing when she went back to the hotel after the rush of meeting the woman she has idolized since she was 14-15 years old?! Sad.

kateplusmy8 Less than two hours until #KatePlus8 returns on @tlc ! New link in my bio with sneak peak of entire NEW season! 10/9c.. tweet and see you then! 😉

And the second one includes 4 of the kids and #Nookie. What a mess her room is, random gates leaning on furniture, dog bowl, dog toys. The clutter would drive me crazy. I really don't buy that she doesn't have some part-time cleaning help, but she must never let them in her room.

kateplusmy8 Just watching #KatePlus8 on @tlc and showering Nanuq with love in between 😍

Where are the other two dogs? How odd that this one animal seems to get all of the attention.

It's always about her! When has Kate ever given her kid a hug whenever THEY needed it most?I could think of a dozen times when the kids either had a melt down or were sad. But all they ever get is eye rolls, critical words, and just being plain ignored.


"One more thing... That house is a mess. And not just because she was getting ready for a party. And the dogs are in the crates a lot and have to be let out. So sad."

Me thinks Kate is cutting corners and her cleaning person/ people is either out or TLC isn't pitching in help pay for a cleaning service. I'm practically convinced TLC hired a cleaning crew for her in the past to help make her look like a neat organized obsessed single mom, but who really knows! Now we see the REAL unorganized messy Kate. As far as the dogs go, this doesn't really surprise me. I think dogs and pets still repulse her. No way did she do a 180 from the time Shoka and Naka made their appearance and we saw her freaking out over one of them peeing on her carpet.

As for one of the comments above about Cara being super silent and sad looking? You know that Cara is counting down the days till she's out of that house and then it's "see ya later". She did make a comment that she wanted to become a doctor and go o college "far far away"

Problem child whom she appears to not be bonded with and who is deterring filming and usurping her time and resources.

Get him out of the house and continue filming unfettered. Continue media blitz with tv appearances and People cover.
Unfettered.

Until...hey, where's your son been, Kate? Is he ever coming home? Does Jon know where his son is?
It's been over a year, Kate, where's Collin?

Wow. Just wow.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Gigi Be (#107), TFW is living a narcissist's dream life. She is all about meeting her own needs, and she's trained all her children to try to meet her needs, too. So there are 8 people in that house who are all about her. No wonder Jon didn't fit in anymore. He seemed to be the one person who was concerned about the kids.

Winsomeone said...

I really don't think I would host any kind of party in a barn infested with large rats. There was no talk about getting an exterminator. If some kid had gotten bitten, they could sue her since she knew the rats were there ahead of time and did nothing. Why did she need a costume anyway..let the kids do the dressing up, and be a parent hostess in street clothes.

"If you’ve been missing Kate Gosselin’s Kate Plus 8, then you’re in luck because the reality show is back, and we don’t want you to miss a thing! If you’re curious about what the reality star and her famous brood have been doing lately, then get up to speed with details about Kate Gosselin and her net worth of $200,000. (Yes …$200,000.) We’ve Got the scoop! https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.earnthenecklace.com/kate-gosselin-net-worth-now/amp/got the scoop!"

I remember when TFW made a special appearance on Rachel Ray's show where she made homemade ice cream and some kind of boat made with sticks out of Tupperware. I think Rachel was first starting out around that time. Kate still had the possum hairdo. But Kate was very condescending and rude to Rachel. She kept getting her little digs in and didn't want Rachel to talk over her. Never mind that Rachel was the host! Kate's arrogance was showing. I remember when both women made their homemade boats and decided to race them in a tub of water and how Kate just had to beat her! I could only imagine what R was thinking. The clip is still out there on YT. How ironic that Kate's supposed net worth is 200K compared to R's net worth of 75 mill. I guess Kate shot herself in the foot again!

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I've read some of the behind the scenes info about Amazing Race and it's really interesting to hear about how filming all works. Bottom line they spend the bulk of their breaks between legs filming segments about what just happened, and they're lucky to get five hours sleep. Production problems also frequently impact flow, and the race can often be artificially held up because of it. Most of this you never see. They also have to say a lot of things for the cameras, like "two tickets to Paris please" and then they say off camera actually four for our crew too.

Point being production would be very distruptive to anyone trying to live their lives and I would be surprised if one or more of the kids is willing to put up with this nonsense all the time.

Regarding that Instagram picture that she posted of them watching the episode… Why in gods name are they watching it in her bedroom instead of one of the family rooms? It's ridiculous that they're all crammed into her room watching it .

Why are there baby gates everywhere??

These dogs are long old enough to be trusted to have run of the house without sectioning them off from everything.

Poor training.

Formerly Duped said...

Maybe Kate was in bed with her one of many bottles-o-wine watching so the 'party' was in there. I agree, why were there so many babygates? Those dogs are at least one year, aren't they?

Layla said...

Sounds like Kate was hinting at dating as a new angle to keep the show going. Never mind that they already tried that and it bombed. She's grasping at straws, trying to come up with some magic idea that will make TLC want to keep filming.

She once said that people come to her all the time with ideas for reality shows and she can play them over in her head and see how the it would look. Yet she can't come up with anything interesting for her own show. It's all about the meltdowns. That's all she can come up with, and she thinks it keeps the show interesting. No wonder the show is failing.

Layla said...

Kate used to have an army of helpers doing all her work for her. There were people to clean the house, take care of the kids, do the yard work, cook meals and deliver them to her, maintain the pool. She even had Carla run her errands for her (in Robert's book he had notes Kate left for Carla--things to do, things to pick up at the store). All she had to do was show up for filming. No wonder she's complaining so much about going without help. She's accustomed to having someone else do everything.

There were rats in the barn and nobody thought to call an exterminator to get rid of them? Another sign of TLC's reluctance to spend money on the show. They should not have had a party in there with rats, or had food there.

The press is still saying that her net worth is $200K. I don't believe that. She has to have much more. If not, then she's horribly mismanaged her money. $200K won't last her 2 years without filming.

Leslie said...

I rewatched the promo for next week and I didn't hear anyone call out Collin's name. I did hear someone yell "Cara", but not Collin.

BTW, the skiing episode was filmed during their spring break this year at the beginning of March.

Thanks for the reply. I had my closed captioning on even though I hear fine. And I swear they had the word Collin on it. Thanks for the clarification though. It saddens me though that he will not be in any of the three episodes. Something is really wrong!

Formerly Duped said...

Couldn't Joel and Aaden look after the chickens? I know Collin was the 'chicken boss' but it was something special they did together. a recent episode had the two boys relegated to lunch-packing duty. What do the girls do? They used to do the lunches.Kendra had the kids switch duties on CWS

GollyGee said...

I was curious and wanted to know how old C's stalker was.

If I found the correct one, he graduated from HS in 2003.

So, he should be around 31.

Congrats, TFW! I hope C. goes far, far away to college and never looks back except for Jon, her brothers and sisters and extended family.

Kate's trying to say that if she had her own dating show or episodes, she's be afforded the opportunity to meet different people and date.
Otherwise, it's not going to happen.
It's crap, but that's the angle she's pushing.

Tucker's Mom said...

I think the kids still pile into Kate's bedroom to watch tv is because she never sits with them or spends time with them.
THEY have to spend time with HER.

GollyGee said...

I wonder if the scrub paper shoes was to avoid stepping in rat droppings and or old chicken, you know.

Why have the food in the barn? It is like putting food around a big petrie dish! Could of set up a tent and had the food under it, tables and chairs.

Yeah, she's done with filming!

That's my impression.
When J+K+8 was as its apogee, they really needed to keep anchored in their old life and not live beyond their means.
I think they both let all the fame and money and opportunities go to their heads and bought into the myth that being a reality tv "stah" is a lifetime career.
Now, Kate has kicked Jon to the curb, she has a huge compound, no family, no real friends and a whole lot of life ahead of her.

I think Kate wanted the whole chicken and coop gone. She was done playing "let's have chickens".
Collin was the main caregiver and Kate sent Collin away and got rid of the chickens right about the same time.
Clean slate.

Susan1956 said...

Found this on the Internet--even though it was written for urban chicken farming it's still relevant. Look at the histoplasmosis and rodent sections.

http://www.idph.state.il.us/health/infect/Poultry.htm

Kudos to production for having the family wear masks when scooping the chicken poop. However, that poop was thick and packed and the shovels appeared new. Had it ever been scooped before? Was Colin provided with a mask if he was scooping poop during his chicken duties? Doubtful. I hope he's had a good physical, wherever he is, and testing if indicated.

A couple things come to mind. There's Zorro, who needs to be kept safe and I wouldn't trust that none of those dogs would go after the bird in the cage. It would take nothing for dogs that big to knock it over and even get in.
Next, I'll bet that Shoka doesn't get along with the puppies, and/or vice versa.
A senior dog who's been an only dog for so long will sometimes not accept other dogs, especially puppies and adolescent dogs.

We have a couple gates up and that helps keep our dogs out of some rooms that we try to keep clean and don't use a lot.
We don't use crates anymore. We will put the dogs in a bedroom or our large mud/laundry room if we need to get them out of everyone's hair.
But in general, they are where we are and are really good with company.

Rae Barnes said...

I can not wait until Admin's recap. I put TLC on during the last 10 minutes of the Dugger show. It was so fake and set up, the proposal was pre-planned and she knew it was coming, then to put the pedophiles face up there to give his opinion on young love crap!! That show made me already not in a pleasant mood to see how the Kate and 8 crew are doing (which it is only 7 now). I don't even know why I watched it, it is like a train wreck you can't look a way from. My questions and comments: 1-Why are the dogs locked up and gates EVERYWHERE!!!!?? I can see the dogs being put up for having a bunch of company and kids over, they might freak out not being used to it. But they were never around when she was traipsing back and forth through the fields. 2- No mention of Collin? 3- Poor Cara had nothing to say! 4-The girl tups ALL seemed to be so full of of themselves and just so annoying! 5- Jamie is an idiot to be Kate's friend when she is such a user (and loser!) 6- Who waits until the day before to start party prepping when it going to be a major event?? NO ONE! 7- Did anyone notice Kate's hair (back of head) when she had it in pig tails at the barn? She had massive dark hair on half her head! How do you dye all the top hairs and not touch the bottom roots? Is it all fake hair? Well I can't wait for the recap maybe it will take the horror of actually watching the episode out of my head.

Tucker's Mom said...

This whole barn party is sounds pretty gross.
This is an unplumbed outbuilding that's been a chicken coop and has rats etc?
That is flipping gross!

Chicken and rat feces will throw crap into the air unless you have it industrially cleaned.
There's no way to make it safe to occupy, let alone eat in, if there's been years of feces on a dirt floor.
Holy hell!

Leslie said...

Did anybody notice when Kate was sitting on the floor pretending to do Leah's costume all the wine that was behind her. The furniture piece on the bottom row had at least 30 bottles of wine.

And Kate kept saying she had no help. What an insult to Jamie and her two teenage children. Not to mention her seven kids who helped her. And no doubt production staff had to have helped her too. And of course TLC would have had outside help with the food but she would not have it.

Kate bitched, moaned, complained, and cried repeatedly throughout the episode. What a total ingrate she is and what a horrible representation she is to her kids. You would think the large check she will receive for filming this episode would at least cheer her up some. Not a chance in hell. I truly think she does a lot of the bitching because it brings drama to her show and gives her audience something to talk about. After all all the promos show what...her freaking out and being bitchy of course. She isn't dumb.

And when I saw her run away screaming at the fence (in the promo of the kid's birthday sleepover) I thought NOBODY would be that afraid of a snake even if it was real. It was not in front of her threatening her. And we again saw her cry and breakdown on the ski slope. Gee, what else is new. NOTHING!

Leslie said...

It broke my heart to see that large dog in that crate. The dog could not move in that crate. And in the room right next to the kitchen she had a large pen (with dark colored bars) for the dogs. Those dogs do not roam that house. Why have the small crate when she has the pen and all the gates? I think Kate is fooling everybody with her staged photos how she loves these dogs. She still makes me sick and mad.

Ahhh I get it, they need Schmoops to pick up the slack for all the ads that refuse to support child molestors. So that's why they string her along, she's got to capture their problem advertising. Well, this is the first time I've ever seen her take one for the team. RBI! Well done.
****************************
Admin, I think you're right. I put on a rerun of Outdaughtered--the trip back to the NICU, the mother-in-law moving in--but could only make it thru the first round of commercials. The footage ran from 12:01 to 12:13. At the 1st break, they ran 9 or 10 commercials, then resumed the show at 12:18.

So I would agree with your theory, but I think the other shows are getting more usable footage. And why did one of the male guests arrive on the deck carrying a few cases of bottled water? Was the party a potluck or didn't production do the shopping?

Leslie said...

OMG! I just saw the photo on Instagram. The woman is a pig. And her room is a pigsty. No way she is organized and clean.

I was reading TLC's facebook page and one woman kept posting and defending Kate stating that Kate is a perfectionist and she has OCD. No way in hell does she have that.

Also three of the kids were not even watching their own show. They are playing with the dog. And it was not even during commercial time. On the screen you could see the barn.

Layla said...

Tucker's Mom (126)
She thinks having a dating show will give her the opportunity to date (and keep filming), but all TLC cares abut is ratings. People didn't tune in for her much-hyped date episode. Why would they film more of something that didn't work? It's their money, and they are a business. Businesses exist to make money. Putting the cash into a venture that is doomed to failure just doesn't make good business sense. But of course, to Kate it's all about her.

Golly Gee (128)
She had to have thought that the crew would clean out the barn for her. They were the ones decorating, so in her mind, they were also responsible for cleaning and getting rid of the rats. It just shows, once again, that she doesn't rate the perks that she used to take for granted.

BTW, have you seen pictures of the barn on Martha Stewart's property? It's amazing and spotless. She has parties and dinners there. I'd be thrilled to go to an event there. But Kate's dirty, rat-infested barn? Not a chance.

Leslie said...

I watched on OnDemand just now and at the beginning before the show started they had this long promo. On the ski slopes I heard somebody yell, Colly, Colly, and then two or three no, no. Then they showed somebody down and saying they could take an on-site x-ray. Then after the show I saw another ski promo and heard somebody yell Cara. But it was not the same scene when I heard Colly, Colly. Even closed caption had Collin, Collin, no, no on there. The no, no I think may have been before they called out his name.

Can somebody else who has on demand watch this promo before the show even starts and see what they hear. Thanks!

The bottom line is, SUCK IT UP, BUTTERCUP!. This is exactly what Kate wanted and got.
Kate CHOSE to focus all her energy on the show, her career and Steve. She let her marriage languish (I'm sure Jon added to this) and guess what? It failed.
Then, Kate CHOSE to make Jon the enemy.
Kate CHOSE to keep that enormous house and compound.
Kate CHOSE to keep the kids in an expensive private school.
Kate CHOSE to kick her family and friends to the curb.

No one should feel sorry for Kate. She has more than most people will have in 3 lifetimes and doesn't appreciate a fricking thing.

Every chance Kate gets, she plays the martyr and bitches about not having help, or enough help.

It's just old. We've heard it all before.

Everyone else has to figure it out, so why does Kate feel she's the only one in this world who has challenges and not enough resources?

She's disgusting.

I did notice the dark roots in her pigtails. She looked like an insane toddler tramping up and down that field talking to herself, bitching all the way. I've never had a barn, but I don't think that place has been cleaned since they moved in. They flashed back to the outdoor chicken coop and it was covered with poop. She is disgusting and definitely not a clean freak. Food wasn't served at the barn (although I did see bowls of candy) - it was served on deckster. And I think in the preview for the season one of the girl tips is saying "falling, falling" and it sounds like Collin.

kris said...

I don't think there was food down at the barn. It was all up on Mr. Deckster and when they were out there it was daylight. When it started getting dark, she said they'd all go down to the barn and go thru the H.H.

Susan1956 said... 131

The last million viewer episode was Kate's Blind Date which got 1,079,000 in January of last year.

This was the highest viewership since. The only other episode that came close was the twins 16th birthday which got 916,000.

Tucker's Mom - Bravo for the post: "Is it any wonder that a network-TLC- whose bread and butter is exploiting children is plagued by child abusers and sexual predators."

And let's not forgot TLC's editor, Blankinship. He was charged with 10 counts of sex exploit of a minor where he possessed photos and/or video of a minor engaged in sexual activity. He edited such TLC shows like Jon and Kate Plus 8, Kate Plus 8, 17 Kids and Counting and Table for 12.

Leslie said...

The last two shows of Kate Plus 8 in January 2017 were at 916,000 and 804,000. So she is basically at the same viewership as when she left our screens six months ago. I guess she is holding her audience so to speak. I think her ratings will decrease over the next two weeks.

Kate Gosselin's greatest trick could very well be convincing the masses that her son Collin would one day return home.

Sad but true said...

A number of the comments I read on FB claimed they didn't now the show was back on. That's all on TLC. Their lack of promotion is, I believe, intentional. They are ready for this show to end, and I think that has everything to do with Collin. The boneheads running the ship have finally woken up to the reality that you can't have Kate Plus 8 when it is, quite noticeably, SEVEN. The poor numbers she's had for the past dozen or so episodes give them all the rationale they need for closing down the circus. The questions people have about Collin are not going to go away; the longer he is gone, the more people will clamor for answers (I sincerely think this is why she had no interviews prior to Monday's show). TLC is not prepared to go there, regardless of what Kate wants.

Leslie - I believe she's saying "falling, falling".

I watched the show today and my observations are that she didn't make half the food because it was too professionally done (I guess they do have caterers for creepy food) and she didn't do a single thing to make the haunted barn other than shovel some real shit (as opposed to the BS she's been shoveling for years). TLC paid for a who,e team to come in and get that barn decorated and hired the people to jump out etc. If the sheeple believe that she and Jamie pulled that together in just a couple of days they are more stupid than I thought.

Anonymous said...

JR @ 173 - That doesn't sound stupid to me. It could very well be that some might doze off during the late evening hour without turning their TV off. That could account for some of the "viewers" last night. Most people who have actually worked all day (unlike TFW) are tired by 10:00pm. Your theory makes sense.

I think TLC collects a lot of viewers who are just parking there.

Just based on my own habits of often having the TV on, I imagine a lot of people are the same. I think a lot of people do what I do and "park" themselves on certain channels when nothing else is on. For me it's usually a news station, HGTV, or maybe AMC. I'm often doing many other things that have nothing to do with the TV, but the TV is on.

Certainly some of those people might choose to park themselves on TLC of all places, and I do think TLC seems like it could be a popular "parking" station, because you know you're not going to get much of any swearing or sex, or scary news stories, so if kids are around, it's an okay place to land. Personally I think its shows are full of things I wouldn't want kids to see, but it's a little more nuanced to see that, and the average viewer might not dive that deep.

Yowser. This is big time.

That is one crazy plea deal. Why would he agree to so much time? Why not just take your chances and go for it like Cosby did, who knows you could get a stupid hung jury too. I wonder when he's eligible for parole. Wonder if that's why he did the deal, a nice early parole.

NJGal51 said...

And before I forget....what was up with her witch costume that she bemoaned was still in the back of her closet! It looked like she threw on a black cocktail dress and a witch hat. The length and cut of the "costume" was maybe not quite appropriate for a kids party and treck through a haunted barn.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

The Willis' statement is humble and on point. Instead of insulting the DA like Mrs. Cosby did, they complement them.

The article I looked at said no parole. Why would he agree to go to jail until he is 87 years old instead of fighting it? He has nothing to lose here--what's worse, life? He's going to probably die in jail anyway. Is he being a martyr and taking one for the team to help the family move on? I mean basically, the kids will never have a father again. Not that he was safe around them, but geez.

"The Willis family would like to thank their family, friends and fans for the outpouring of love and support during this most difficult year. Additionally, the Willis family would like to thank the many members of law enforcement for their detailed and comprehensive investigation of this matter. Finally, the family would like to thank the District Attorney's office for their diligence and sensitivity in the handling of this case. The family has remained fully cooperative throughout the investigation. Although the criminal case has concluded with Toby Willis receiving 40 years for the crimes he committed, the impact on the victims will remain much longer. The family is appreciative and grateful that people have respected their need for privacy during this trying time and asks for continued respect as they seek to move forward."

The bottom line is, SUCK IT UP, BUTTERCUP!. This is exactly what Kate wanted and got.

In addition to all that, I think she sounds tone deaf when she complains about luxury things like housekeeping. Does she not understand it's a luxury? A want not a need? A rarity for most parts of the country??

Does she not understand that a huge number of people will never be able to afford a housekeeper? That a lot of people somehow manage to keep up with the cleaning in their home with full time jobs, overtime, kids, etc.

SHE doesn't work. SHE stays home. SHE has more money than most of us will ever see in our lifetime. Either fork over the dough for the housekeeper, downsize to a home you can afford in order to pay for a housekeeper, or STFU and do it yourself.

We've been saving for our first home for several years now, and one of the first things I cut several years ago was housekeeping to be able to save. Yeah, it's hard to keep up with it while everybody is working all the time and all our other obligation, and yeah, the house is not as spotless as I wish it were. But I also know I'm very blessed, and I'm grateful to have a roof over my head and an able body to clean the home with enough left over for a down payment. She has no such ability to be grateful. She just doesn't get it. If your biggest worry is boo-hoo I don't have a housekeeper, it's time to get a reality check.

Wouldn't the fans call her a great mommy for granting Collin's request?I don't know,i still think kate caught herself between a rock and a hard place with this whole thing.

I do think now it's a catch 22, and that she's really gotten herself into a pickle with no good way out.

But, initially, I think she did have a good out that most people would have been supportive of, and that is to say that the filming is not in Collin's best interest and so out of concern and love for Collin, they are taking a temporary, possibly permanent hiatus in order to best support him and his needs.

Sure there would be the odd steeple or two who couldn't get over it and would blame Collin, but they wouldn't be that common.

Regarding the comments about the nasty barn and the messy house - years ago I remember either Jon or Kate's ex-boyfriend talking about what a slob she is. Does anyone remember that? I always knew her OCD, super-organized mom of many schtick was fake.

Are you serious?

They put the camera in Josh's face so he could give his opinion on
Young Love? I want to hurl.

TLC, what the hello is wrong with you?

GollyGee said...

Remember at the yard sale and a lady wanted to buy the electronic screeching ugly witch? And TFW wanted it back and Mady kept telling her to sell it. TFW turned into a child and got her way and was triumphant in keeping the witch.

The witch.

What was so funny when they were leaving the yard sale, the toy witch was placed on the drivers side window and was screeching and red eyes glowing.

Good try, Steve. Even with that elaborate deflection, we could still see it was you driving!

She should of dragged it out to the barn to be part of the decorations.

She gripped about keeping it so bad. She probably doesn't even know where it is!

I came across a congrats, Jill and Derik baby video with Josh, Anna and their 2 boys and 2 girls. A boy is sitting in Josh's lap and the other son sitting next to him close. Anna is holding the youngest girl and the oldest girl is standing next to the love seat.

They all look like what happened, never happened.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I don't believe that TFW doesn't have household help. Not for a second. I don't care if the house looks like Tobacco Road. There is no way she takes care of that huge place by herself, or with only the kids to help.

JR (#180), isn't it absurd to bring up babysitters?
May I reference Greg and Marcia Brady, who felt demeaned and insulted when their parents wanted to call a sitter? They were 14 and 13 and said, "Kids our age ARE sitters!" TFW just cannot resist the opportunity to play victim -- it's like a reflex to her to complain, even when the thing she complains about is no longer relevant.

@Kateplusmy8: We said goodbye to our chickens around the time we got #Nanuq and #Mak. I know my limits 😉😉😉 @TLC

Isn't that also the same time that you got rid of Collin 😉😉😉 #whatsonelesskidbecausewegotPUPPIES

Well, I don't know what to think now as I just sat thru an hour and four minutes of Outdaughtered in order to log the commercials. I'm open to any theories.

From 8:00 to 8:02 the audience is treated to flashbacks of previous seasons. The show runs from 8:02 to 8:11, then a very quick 'coming up next' footage is shown.

1. Reddi Whip
2. Stitch Fix
3. Red Lobster
4. Aspercreme
5. Secret
6. Girl's Trip--Universal movie
7. Realtor.com
8. Oral B
9. Publisher's Clearing House
10. Home Advisor
11. Rattled

This 1st round of commercials ran from 8:11 to 8:16. *During the 1st 3 rounds of commercials, it was a split screen. The commercial was at the top of my TV screen, with footage labeled Outdaughtered Play Break running underneath--scenes which included the girls playing with bubbles, in the sprinkler, then coloring respectively.

The show resumed at 8:16 and ran until 8:24, followed by a 1 minute 'coming up next' preview. *During this portion of the show, there was "Are You Taking A Stand Against Bullying" running at the bottom of the screen. Subliminal message not to hate on the Busbys, perhaps?

The following commercials ran from 8:25 to 8:30.

12. Target
13. Quicken Loans
14. Subaru
15. Mattress Firm
16. Experian
17. Apoquel (dog itch treatment)
18. Connections Academy (local company)
19. Thoroughbred Ford (local company)
20. Beauty Brands
21. Counting On
22. 90 Day Fiancee
23. The Spouse House

The show resumes at 8:30 and runs until 8:40. There is no 'coming up next' preview at this break.

24. I Am Jazz
25. Hair Goddess
26. KFC
27. Reddi Whip
28. Off
29. Ebates
30. Secret
31. Gold Bond Diabetic Skin Relief
32. Massage Envy
33. Crest 3D White
34. Spectrum (local cable company)
35. Lego Batman Movie
36. Get Realtor
37. Diana: Tragedy or Treason

The show returns from 8:45 to 8:53. The last commercials started at 8:53 and ended at 8:58.

38. Rattled
39. Raid
40. Toyota C-HR
41. Red Lobster
42. Ebay
43. Progressive
44. Target
45. Primrose Schools (local company)
46. Crest
47. Humira
48. I Am Jazz
49. Preview of Outdaughtered season + a quick exercise clip from Danielle

The show resumed at 8:58 and the episode ended at 9:02. There was then another season preview that ran from 9:02 to 9:04.

When I sat down to do this, I expected a commercial count of around 40--I mean cute babies instead of sullen teens and a crazy narcissistic mother, right? But Outdaughtered only had 5 less commercials than Kate + 7. I think TLC is going to great lengths to show a kind, softer Danielle who is saddled with a wimpy husband, but are they having trouble getting enough usable footage? Do they pay the Busbys less than Schmoopy so they wouldn't need to run as many commercials? Production costs would have been less between the 2 episodes. I don't know what to think.

friendly reminder that it's 7/11/17 and @Kateplusmy8 still has an active television show that people watch on their televisions every week

You just gotta laugh! Do these people live under a rock? I don't see them sharing our veranda!

At least he's not holding the girls.

Just based on my own habits of often having the TV on, I imagine a lot of people are the same. I think a lot of people do what I do and "park" themselves on certain channels when nothing else is on. For me it's usually a news station, HGTV, or maybe AMC. I'm often doing many other things that have nothing to do with the TV, but the TV is on.

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

Same here. I fall asleep during Forensic Files, and I'll wake up to see Robin Meade and Morning Express. I wonder how much news I absorb via osmosis.

Nice work from the grassy knoll!

My working theory is that they have to stack commercials heavily in other shows because they can't put very many of them in the Duggars.

Well that's the other thing is I also think she has help. Why she thinks it's okay to lie about it only she knows.

A standard housekeeper doesn't really tidy up your shit. They'll work around it and kindly ask you to tidy up before you come. You have to pay a lot more money for a tidy-upper, and usually that person would be some kind of daily person who does way more than just a general house cleaning and knows you and your things well, like where things should go. Maybe she doesn't count a run-of-the-mill housekeeper who comes once a week or so as "help", because she used to have daily and more extensive specialized help. Little tear for her.
