Kate's throwing the vacatiton out there either to confirm filming, or try to fool people into thinking they are, after all the talk about a 3-episode "season".

****


She also has to one-up Jon, who took the kids on a mediocre vacation to the Jersey shore.

Swept up the sand,ate ice cream snack, tucked the littles in, now watching Olympics w C&M &friends! Loving r X in peaceful beach house!

I would be mortified to still be "tucked in" at age 13.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

No, TLC allows people to post photos of episodes. The Little People do so all the time.

I think networks understand now that generally, the more social media promo you do, even during filming, the better.

Unless you're Game of Thrones, promotional social media is encouraged.

Go Barb!

barbgilmer1 Your on vacation? What's a vacation? It's been years since my family has had a vacation!

Kate does not know her demographic and never has.

Well, they were only 8 when she tweeted this (this was her one "I'm poor and alone" vacation, not filmed), but even so, it's all fakery.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I enjoyed time I've spent in North Carolina. I was in Elizabeth City in July....but it's RIDIC hot in July. OFF SEASON for sure. That sounds like something Kate would do, cheap out.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Who wants to watch someone else's kids learn how to ski?


&&&&&


Who wants to watch someone else's kids do anything?

Seriously, I'm never gonna get the appeal, if that is the appeal. I think something is wrong with you if you're watching this for the kids. I think most viewers at this point are watching because they cannot believe Kate. Like a train wreck and you can't look away.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


I meant to ask anyone who watched the Halloween episode, how did the boys appear? Either of them showing signs of not cooperating with the usual show b.s. like Cara?

&&&&

Despite their mother, the boys are great. Chill, easy going, good sense of humor. I think filming is not going to affect them much because they are very agreeable, with chip-in, can-do attitudes. They are both Jon's sons. Filming seems to have taken a much bigger toll on Collin and the more emotional girls.

Of note, both boys spend regular time with their father.

NJGal51 said...

Maybe it's a company house used for VIPs when they're in town and a mini vacation is a consolation (or cancellation) prize for TFW getting the bad news about her show.

NJGal51 said...

It's like booking a spa vacation in one of the Scottsdale AZ resorts during the summer.....dirt cheap because 118 degrees is not enjoyable.

Sad but true said...

Oh good god, the Duggars' NEXT season starts Sept 11. Really? They're not even done with the current one. TLC is a joke.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Admin (#1), of course! That makes perfect sense! Whether it's gaga ball or parenting, TFW's gotta WIN!

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I agree it could be a company house and it could also be part of the bribe. Cooperate with filming this year and we'll get a nice summer beach vacay.

Except with Jon they don't have to film, and still get a beach vacay.

The humidity in July in N.C.,.....woo-eee!

ncgirl said...

"I enjoyed time I've spent in North Carolina. I was in Elizabeth City in July....but it's RIDIC hot in July. OFF SEASON for sure. That sounds like something Kate would do, cheap out."

Yes, it's very hot here and humid. Kate seems to enjoy the heat which gives her an opportunity to flaunt her body. It's actually cooler here now. Last week was in the 100's heat index. It looks that way again toward the end of the week.

A connection to somebody with a vacation home at Figure 8 makes sense. Raleigh and Charlotte are a couple of hours apart.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Yeah, somebody at the company has an air B and B, didn't get any bookings this week because it's flipping horrible in July, and let them stay there.

No, that's Old England.

Funny, I swear she also said last time they went to Maine they had never been to New England before, and everybody was like, then how did you meet that creepy Em fan at the marathon in Connecticut then???

Sad but true said...

Kate is a twit said... 22

Obviously, "making memories" isn't doing a whole lot for her. She really is a dimwit. You'd think one of the producers might have mentioned it to her. Not like it was 25 years ago, it was 2014, FFS.

Sad but true said...

Fired Up 4 Kate‏ @MiloandJack
@Kateplusmy8 You got them color coded...who is who all dressed??

She had to color-code her kids? WTF? I guess Milo plans to asks unanswered questions the whole episode. I'm wondering if K8's absence tonight is just a big middle finger to TLC. It's not like she could be expected to handle it gracefully or anything.

NJGal51 said...

Uh oh, still no Kate....TLC is not going to be happy. Only a few diehards tweeting which means the bots probably don't chime in until TFW checks in. Milo's giving a running commentary of the action.

JR said...

Knowing her she fell asleep

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Sad but true (#21), and as usual, the fans have selective amnesia. TFW has left the kids at the drop of a hat many, many times since the divorce, when they were much younger and not remotely self sufficient. The best example of that was when she was in NYC for a MONTH doing Celebrity Apprentice. If she broke her leg tomorrow, she'd at least be home with her kids, and they'd get along just fine. I don't get the dramatics.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

She DID says she hadn't been to New England before back during the New England episode. Is she stupid or just dumb?

I said this about it in the recap: "Kate has discovered, Chris Columbus style, that they have never been to New England before, so that would be a great place to get TLC to pay for a trip to. Hm. But they all went to Connecticut in 2012 to run a race together. Maybe she thinks New England is its own state."

And that's how you can tell that TFW buys comment bots. If she's not there neither are they. She can't blame it on a time change because it's in the same time zone as PA. Major fail on TFW's part. She'll claim exhaustion from a day in the sun.

Friends and I have done that a couple times, in our younger days, because it's dirt cheap and so much of it is indoors.

We stayed in the MGM grand, shopped and ate, and when we were outside, we were at their giant pool area and lazy river just up to our neck in the cool water, drinks, and big sun hats.

The parking garage was an inferno. The drive succcckkked.

But, ya save big money.

Been there and done that. Now we go the week before Christmas. A room at the Paris is $49 a night and the weather is mild.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

She promised she would answer questions and she's gone mute on both Instagram and twitter. Lol, dolt. A lot of comments are negative, asking where Collin is and telling her she ruined the vacation.

Also, the photo she posted on instagram is so ridiculously far away, you can't even tell who anyone is.

Same here! I hear ya.
We stayed at the Bellagio and had a ball. It was newer then.
We saw shows, ate, lounged and did a little walking. We also took the free trolley around to other casinos.
It was fun, but next visit will be when it's cold here, and warm there.
Screw it. Life's too short!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Tucker's Mom (#49), TFW, 12-year-old that she is, made a commitment, and bailed when she found something better to do. Maybe she thought she was going to be stuck in the room with her kids, but found another activity for them, so she's out partying. She may be getting her foot licked as we speak...

Ya f*cked up Kate. You don't treat people like dirt and expect them to come back kissing your butt.

I wonder how TLC feels about Kate missing the tweet party. Last week, they were retweeting Kate's tweets as she was making them.

This week they were already to go when they tweeted this at 10pm:

I guess tonight's show was another raging success. From K8's FB page:

XXXXX 🙄. Dramatic much? "She hates fun things". How sad is that?!?

XXXXX The adult cry baby continues. She really needs a therapist.

How about scenario number four......she doesn't give a rat's ass. I didn't watch the show but enjoyed Milo's tap dancing as she tried to keep the twitter party going. There were only about 30 people there and less than 100 comments....most of them from Milo and the other regulars.

XXXXX Kate, seriously stop the whining, you are rediculous and such a poor role model. Quite sickening.

XXXXX She's not afraid to get nasty with her kids, but is a whiner to do something fun, like her kids...skiing. She should let the kids go with someone who likes to have fun, and she can stay home and shut up. Wah wah wah

XXXXX How come last week started and next week is already the season final??? I am so mad 😡

XXXXX Why did I think after 2 years of not seeing her I could actually tolerate her whining and crying down a snow ski slope!!!
Channel change!

Maybe she had a few glass of wine tonight and that's why she was a no show on twitter.

Even if she couldn't live tweet the entire show, she should have at least showed up on twitter and said something about not being able to live tweet. She could have said "Sorry, guys, won't be live tweeting. After a day of sun and sand I'm exhausted and going to bed. :("

FlimsyFlamsy said...

So she seriously didn't tweet once? Can't wait to hear her excuse. She'll probably say one of the kids suddenly took ill (like their Easter allergy attacks), and only Mommy could make it better. But it would be epic if someone posted a picture of her out frolicking somewhere.
But does anyone care enough to take her picture anymore?

At the end when she was saying that she was proud of her kids because they did such a great job skiing down the mountain.

There were only 7 kids that skied down.

She said that she was proud of the kids.

What about Collin? Is she not proud of him?

The adults that were trying to help her to me seemed like they were thinking that she was faking being scared.

Maybe she's pouting about TLC's recent announcement, and in her passive-aggressive way is hitting back by refusing to tweet. I'm sure TLC's not happy with this little stunt. She'll come back tomorrow with some lame excuse to smooth things over, but no matter what, she dropped the ball.

brighid.mcneilwhy didn't you invite collin on vacation

kitty62862 Momma Bear, maybe it might be good to talk to a pro about your fearfulness. Your kids are big enough to share safe adventures with you as you say goodbye to fear. Being concerned for safety is admirable, but you need to cut loose a little. At this stage, your kids will appreciate being a part of Mom growing past her fears. I have to congratulate you on not imparting the fears to your children. This was the first time I've actually watched your show. You have 8 teenagers. The thought of that both scares me silly, and makes me respect you enormously. I had one child, she's 24 now. I don't know how you do it, but you do. You clearly love your children. You're headed for the most difficult phase with your younger ones, and you have 6 going through it at the same time. YIKES!!! I wish you the very best. Wish I'd had a Mom like you.

brighid.mcneil that's kinda rude that you didn't even invite your own son on vacation

brighid.mcneil do you visit him

GollyGee said...

I thought the comment from the horrible mother was when all of the tups were racing on the tube tires down the mountain she said, Goodbye kids, HAVE A NICE LIFE!

I wonder if that is what she told Collin when he was taken away.

When she rode the tube tire down the mountain, she EASILY jumps and stands up and says really hateful, GOODBYE!
And stomps off back up.

She couldn't barely stand when she was on the skis.

Could you imagine being her physical therapist in rehab if she had to try to walk at the double bars?

Not that I want anything to happen to her, but her meanness and attitude is off the charts.

Um, huh??? Why didn't she pop in BEFORE everybody sat around waiting for her--to say OOPS looks like I'm not gonna tweet tonight sorry.

Besides what does having TLC have to do with anything? Shouldn't she know what people are asking about given that she was THERE?

This is where just how rude and uncaring she is comes out. She really truly doesn't see anything wrong with what she just did.

Well, you've only got one more episode to worry about.

It's also lame that she waited 20 minutes after the episode to end before she tweeted anything. Why didn't she tweet at 10pm when she "discovered" that they didn't get TLC?

I don't buy her excuse. I think she just didn't want to be bothered, especially since there's only one more episode left.

IMO, she made that IG post about tweeting just to get people to watch, making an empty promise she had no intentions of keeping. That's probably also the reason she posted the vacation post, so that she'd have a built in excuse for not tweeting.

For those not watching, there's a recap here:
http://www.celebdirtylaundry.com/2017/kate-plus-8-recap-71717-season-5-episode-10-kate-goes-skiing-sort-of/

"Kate kept chanting bedtime whenever they asked about something. Like laundry or what they had planned for the next day."

How immature. I'm sure she wouldn't like it if the kids were to start chanting when she asks a question or wants them to do something.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Her excuse makes zero sense. She wishes she'd been there to tweet? She was there -- she just didn't do it! TLC being available to her or not had absolutely no bearing on her being able to respond to fan's comments. She lived the ski trip -- it's not like she would have no idea what the fans were talking about.

Raise your hand if you can picture her sitting with her sons at 10pm playing cards. Much more likely she was playing with Jack Daniels and Captain Morgan...

Sue said...

Her no show tonight makes me believe even more that she's not filming on this vacation. Had she been filming she damn sure would have been at that tweet party.

Right, and she's full of it. Even if she is doing the card games and pool time, she would bring her phone with her. That's just what people do these days, ya bring your phone.

Again, I don't have a problem if she would like to spend time with her children instead of tweet, great. But, don't say you will host a chat and then just not show up. How is that okay? She's really unbelievable.

Susan1956 said...

Well, that was 2 hours of non-entertainment. But it was a gold mine as far as psychological studies.

So I’m still working on admin’s theory of Kate + 8 & other TLC shows having to show more commercials because a lot of advertisers refuse to have their ads run during Counting On.

For the purpose of tonight's recount, I am going to count a couple promos and a video baby announcement as commercials and will place a number behind any commercial shown more than once. If Khate watched Counting On, she must be spitting nails. The Duggars got a real studio instead of the basement in their house and an actual host for their trivia game (because this is what this episode and next week’s episode boils down to). The host/interviewer is Daphne Oz (one of the hosts of The Chew) and pregnant with her 3rd child. Present were Jana, Jessa (who talked the most) and Ben, Jinger and Jeremy, Joy-Anna & Austin, Joseph (Kendra is to join the group in next week’s episode—something I found interesting is that Kendra’s father is the Duggar’s pastor and it sounds like ‘church’ is located a fair distance away from the Duggars), John-David, and Josiah (I would say Josiah is the cutest of the older Duggar boys—the other boys look too much like JoshieBoy). There was some minor shade thrown at John-David/rewriting of history/care taken to let the audience know John-David has never been in a relationship.

The program began with a 1 minute intro consisting of scenes from this season of Counting On. I'm not going to recap the show any further, just list commercials.

*1st round of commercials

1. Outdaughtered
2. The Spouse House
3. Taco Bell
4. Haribo Gold Bears
5. Progressive
6. Girl's Trip--Universal Movie
7. Culver's
8. Local law firm--I prefer not to identify local businesses, but I will be giving them a call tomorrow.
9. Princess Diana: Tragedy or Treason
10. I Am Jazz
11. Hair Goddess
*These last 2 commercials were very short and at first I thought they combined them.

*2nd round of commercials

11. 'Sneak Peek'--Meet the Putmans, a new TLC show which will premiere on September 11th, about a family of 26 people living under one roof. Mom, Dad, 4? adult children and their children. So it looks like they, rather than Schmoopy, will follow Counting On next season.
12. Video announcement/congratulations from Jessa, complete with wt. & length, of Jill's new baby.
13. I Am Jazz (2)
14. Kind Nutrition? Bars (I've found these in the grocery store and they are good & affordable, so nah, nah Bella Bars).
15. The Emoji Movie
16. Car Max
17. Command Hooks
18. Spectrum
19. Hoover
20. Hair Goddess (2)
21. The Spouse House (2)

*These last 2 commercials were very short and at first I thought they combined them.

*3rd round of commercials

23. Counting On Season Finale
24. Kate + 8
25. Outdaughtered (2)
26. Haribo Gold Bears (2)
27. Bexsero--Meningitis B Vaccine
28. Milklife.com
29. Humira
30. Counting On Season Finale (2)

And we're done!! Up next Kate + 8. Another quick promo for next week's Counting On season finale. Guess who they show walking into the room!! JimBoob and Babykins, each carrying one of Jessa's babies.

I agree. It was a bait and switch. And she's too dumb to realize that bait and switch people enough and you've lost their good will and good graces.

She's just ....so....amateur. Social media 101 is to be on your best behavior with your fans. If you're going to do something do it, and if you have to back out, you let them know as soon as possible and offer sincere apologies and promises to make it up. Then you FOLLOW THROUGH.

She plays with fire with her own fans, and I believe she has lost many over the years over such similar behavior.

Kate is a twit said...

Like I said in an earlier post, why couldn't they watch the episode on TLCgo. They live stream episodes. In fact, right now they're streaming the repeat of the 10pm show.

I'm they brought at least one Ipad or perhaps a lap top with them. And TLCgo has a special sign-in for Discovery employees and guests, and I would think Kate would have one of those special sign-ins.

So I definitely do not buy the excuse that she didn't tweet because they weren't able to get TLC.

I wonder if any of the fans find it funny that TFW finally showed up right after the show was over.

KIAT (#89), maybe she put all the kids to bed at 9:30 and was off getting some "TLC" with a spa massage.

It's been mentioned within the past few days that she hasn't had any TV interviews or much press touting her new (ahem) 'season'. I wonder if tonight's no-show at her own party was her way of getting the attention she craves and hopes this will create a buzz in the entertainment industry.

The way she has handled or mishandled this no-show is just so strange, it makes me think she was working with her own twisted motive in mind. It's bound to get a lot of notice.

I think it was a combination of TLC's announcement and the professional approach to the interview/trivia game on Counting On which preceded her show.

Her antics have a few of the sheeple going, but I think it will only get a laugh and another black mark against her in the entertainment industry.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


She should have known before now if they didn't get the TLC channnel and should not have promised the tweet party. Lame.

&&&&

She should have turned the T.V. on close to 10pm, and she would have realized right then there was no TLC, and logically would have tweeted right then oops, we don't have TLC. But why not say oops we don't have TLC but I can still take your questions about the trip, because well, hell, I was actually THERE. Lol.

And, she has two excuses that don't seem consistent. One is that they got too caught up in playing, the other is that they don't have TLC. So which is it, you were too caught up playing, or you turned the TV on and there was no TLC? Because both excuses don't really work together.

And where is her tweet to Time Warner or whatever, hey we're staying down here in N.C. and there's no TLC! What gives?!

The diabolic part is that she never.intended.to.tweet. This is where I really think this woman is a sociopath. Not all sociopaths are serial killers.

Susan1956 said...

Something like this might make you have a little more compassion for Jon. He still has this mental illness to contend with on the regular. I imagine many times she's just reneged on plans he may have made with the kids, just to deprive him (and them) of the pleasure. It's about power and control -- her weapons of choice.

I wonder if the bright and shiny Busbys have gotten under TFW's skin and she's trying to send an eff you to TLC. And who knows -- the yay be waiting for just such an opportunity to cut her loose.

GollyGee said...

What gets me is no lifejackets. I don't want anything to happen, BUT...bad things do. And she can't blame Jon for not providing lifejackets. Even if they pitched a fit and refused to wear them, she should of told them that if they don't wear one, they can't go out on the lake.

This is all on her.

It will be HER FAULT for once.

xxxxxNo life vests on anyone...very dangerous! Even the best swimmers can get into trouble and drown. You really don't take care of your money makers, do you! 1 down 5 to go. Who's next to get rid of?

=========
With less than 30 people attending the twitter party I doubt that this will even be a blip on the radar of any entertainment news program. If it does happen to make the news I can't see the comments being anything but negative. I think she may have gone on vacation because she didn't have any press junkets planned and this will give her an excuse as to why if questioned.

pandapandaOnly Kate could ruin Killington.

xxxxx@kateplusmy8 where is collin during these episodes?
carleneigras1Oh @kateplusmy8! Come out, come out wherever you are! #MIA on Twitter tonight.

xxxxxOh no Kate, they didn't ALL do it. Not Collin.

xxxxxHow can you go on vacation and exclude your son Collin? Really? Wherever he is, it couldn't possibly be better than spending a little time with his brothers and sisters. I can imagine what he must feel like when he watches this episode.

xxxxxWhy do you freak about everything. You ride horses. They can be very dangerous no matter how well trained. Just an act to get all the attention away from the kids.

xxxxxYou invite people to a 'tweet party' so they can "#AskMeAnyQuestionsWhileWatching" and you don't skow up!! How rude of you!! As it happened only 6 die-hard fans did show up and the rest of the 6 -8 were drive bys. You probably saw how empty your Twitter feed was and bailed as a host. Or you got smashed again and lying drunk as a skunk on the floor...again! Remember when Mady and Cara hard to pick you up that time you got drunk & fell downstairs? LOLOLOL glass everywhere they cleaned up too. Go awn Kate, open another bottle.

xxxxxBy the way...you house has lost at least $350, 000 in value. Time to cash out some of those bonds Steve's been "looking after" for you.

xxxxxI know Collin is in some boarding school but they also have spring break at the same time... I know he's there to get better, but that he must feel even worse missing all these fun times and his OWN two birthday parties these last years. It'll own make him feel worse. Whatever special needs he has, discluding him from family vacations isn't very fair. If it's to keep him from being on TV, he can still join and just not record him.

xxxxxKate doesn't want Collin home. Doesn't matter if he wants to go home or not, she won't allow him. He was very brave and told autorties about Kate severely busing him. He told teachers and anyone who would listen. His sisters otld teachers Kate was beating him and they ereafraid for his life. Because he told, she won't let him come home and maybe he doesn't want to go live with a mother who hates him and beats him every single day. Plenty of 'helpers' and sitter have seen her do that and reported it. Don't know why she isn't in jail.

Most of the speculation here about the future of K8's Krapfest is based on this fairly obscure article that doesn't seem to have been picked up by any other outlets:

http://www.multichannel.com/news/content/tlc-hopeful-more-kate-plus-8/413879

Wendy Douglas is a producer at TLC, has not apparently worked on K+8, so why she was chosen to make these comments is also unclear.

There is also a recent ET segment (I don't have the link to that one) where the hosts are talking about the show coming back for a very limited run and they mention how the show was actually cancelled last September. (Oddly, last September People ran a story about the show being cancelled again; the headline is still there, but the text of the article is from 2011.)

Something smells about the whole situation, frankly. No idea why TLC and everyone else needs to be so cagey about it.

I really enjoy reading everybody's comments about last night show.

It got me to thinking at what point in this saga did Kate "jumped the shark". For me it was after she kicked Jon to the curb and became Kate plus 8.

Admin, I really appreciate the recaps you do. I must admit I tried to watch last night. Gave up after 3-4 minutes. It was too painful to watch.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Turtle (#130), nice to see you!

As a former fan, I think the scales fell from my eyes when they moved to the new house. Instead of helping her 8 still-very-young kids get acclimated in their new environment, TFW cleaned a fridge for 4 hours. Then yelled for one of the twins to wipe her brother's behind while she continued her busy work. "Mine all mine, as far as the eye can see." I finally got her number.

Layla said...

Kylie (123)
The VP at TLC announced last week that they would like to check in with limited runs with Kate and the kids in the future, but they don't have any announcements right now. Sounds a lot like the cancellation announcement back in 2011. In that one, they said that they were not renewing K+8 for the next season, but hoped to check in with Kate and kids for specials in the future (I went back and checked--they never said the word "cancelled" in that announcement". If you go back to the last thread, the recent statement is printed in its entirety. Especially coming right at the beginning of this "season", which everyone is questioning (a "season" with only 3 episodes???), it sounds like they aren't planning to film, at least for awhile.

This failure to show up for the tweet party--after she just said, a few hours before, that she would participate--is incredibly passive-aggressive. Then popping up 20 minutes after the episode with a lame excuse? Yep, she's trying to irritate someone. No doubt she's trying to get to TLC. Maybe she's hoping that her fans would flood TLC's twitter feed with inquiries about her, showing them how popular she is. Or maybe simply thumbing her nose. Either way, It was childish and nasty, and of course TLC noticed. They retweeted some of the fan tweets, so someone there was keeping an eye on her feed. They know.

The sheeple were SO angry about that Coupon Cabin letter! They couldn't understand why he just didn't let Kate finish out her year and leave quietly instead of a public firing. But then when her second blogging job was quietly cut short, they were able to make all kinds of excuses about her leaving. That's why Scott at CC put that letter out there. So there was no question about what happened and why. No opportunity for fake excuses from anyone. She sucked and she was fired.

I think this recent announcement from TLC was carefully worded to avoid any ugliness from her fans. Remember last time, fans were tweeting that "TLC ruined my life", etc. They don't want to deal with any of it, and they don't want to have to film a "goodbye" episode. Just tell them there's nothing to announce, dangle the carrot of possible future filming to keep everyone on their best behavior, and fade away. Nothing to see here, folks!

havent seen the ski episode yet, perks of not having cable and will nwver get it. i just wait till someone uploads it some place.

the lake picture looks familiar my uncle has a beach house near a lake like that. i will have to see from my photos if that hoise in the back ground is there. probably not. but i bet its someone beach house from tlc c.o. i remember her mentioning when the puppies were pups this is a rental or sort and we have to make sure the pups dont make a mess plus didnt they drive. Its only a 7 hr at the most.

i have to laugh someone under her instagram photo said something about her being mia during the episode she was supposed to be twittering through. guess someone got ahold of the wine box to early.

poor little kate her empire is crumbling maybe she should call her old boss donald for some help. they both are alike in many ways than another.

I think you're right. But what I don't understand is why the f*** you to TLC now? I thought the TLC announcement was made last September? Did it finally dawn on her that they mean it or did TLC reject her ideas for future epiodes--you know she tried to get a summer vacation episode out of them--and sat her down saying no, means no Kate?

Loved how she rolled her eyes and had that "I smell a fart" face she wears whenever she has to spend time with her kids (charades). She was shoving that pizza in her giant maw and washing it down with that big ole glass of wine. Yeah she loves being a mother. Lol

It was really boring.

Such entertainment...gah.

I finally watched last week's episode yesterday, and caught the monstrosity last night. While Admin's recap was highly entertaining, I just could not believe the amount of whining and tantrum throwing by the queen herself. How embarrassing!

&&&&


The timing of it seems to fit. I don't think they have any unused footage left out there after this 3 episode run. It's about to rap, and Kate the producer probably had a lot of summer fun episode ideas that involved free trips she was peddling on TLC. TLC declined, and sent a nicely worded Dear John letter to the public to save face and slip away without fanfare. As a consolation prize, Kate got to stay in somebody's air b and B during the off season because after all she is TLC "family" Cough.

She sent an F-you back by refusing to tweet during the episode as promised, which is childish but classic Kate.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


I do.
Companies pretty much have to offer access on all platforms these days.
Kate has no excuse and she'll just go on like she farts rose petals.

Most do. A couple will block you when you leave the zip code like mine does, which is annoying. I can watch it on my ipad at starbucks nearby, but not at starbucks ten miles away. But, there is a work around. I can still go directly to the network themselves and stream what is available, still signing in to access it through my cable provider. In other words, TLCgo should have worked for almost everyone.

Layla said...

Susan 1956 (136)
I wonder--if they told her in September that they weren't going to renew, but had already contracted for another season, she must have assumed that the season would be 8 episodes. Then they cut it down to 3 and she didn't get her usual filmed vacations this summer. That would have ticked her off. Maybe this vacation was already booked and paid for, but she assumed she'd also get a big paycheck for going, and then she had to go without the paycheck. Could have been her resentment coming to the surface. Of course she can't attack outright because she wants TLC to film at some point in the future, so she chose the passive-aggressive route. Very typical of her. Imagine having to go on a free vacation with your kids and not be able to collect a $40K paycheck for it! Wouldn't you be furious too?

Wendy Douglas is a producer at TLC, has not apparently worked on K+8, so why she was chosen to make these comments is also unclear.
---------------

She's listed in the credits for Kate plus 8. The credit says:

For TLC
Executive Producer
Wendy L Douglas
Amy Doyle

According to this article, posted in August 2014, Wendy is VP of Production East Coast for TLC.

http://www.c21media.net/tlc-revamps-east-coast-team/

"Douglas has launched and manages shows including Long Island Medium and 19 Kids & Counting and will now oversee production of series including the specials of parenting show Jon & Kate Plus 8."

So since she works in East Coast Productions, I would think she would definitely know what's going on with Kate plus 8.

For the blog historians, what's been the lowest numbers for the show?

I was googling TLC last night and came across an announcement that they have 7 new shows in the works for the 2017-2018 season and Whitley--never watched, could barely tolerate the commercials--of My Big Fat Fabulous Life has not been renewed yet. At first glance, this new show, Meet the Putnams, could be a contender to replace even the offspring of JimBoob and Babykins. Big extended family--check--lots of kids--check--big house (already built)--check & check. I'm sure religion plays a part in the story, but one of the SIL's is a physician so I doubt there would be any home births.

TV, even reality TV programming is always changing and JimBoob & TFMJG would do well to accept this.

Even allowing for people away on vacations and/or being busy with family/summer middle of July activities, that figure of 781,000 represents 416,000 people tuned out after the Duggar show. It's also 137,000 fewer than last week. Good news for people who care about the Gosselin children and the way they have been exploited by TLC with the full approval of their mother; not good news for TFW.

Susan1956 said...

Khate's little stunt last night may have far reaching, permanent, consequences on her bottom line.

I'm not a fan of TLC, but it seems they were willing to revisit the Gosselins periodically at the time of their announcement last fall. Yes, they did the Haunted Barn and the upcoming sextuplet birthday (both filmed on the compound) episodes on the cheap, but so far they hadn't shown Kate behaving really badly as she did on the R V trip. So her failure to show up for her tweet party last night, whether it was a contractual obligation or not, may be the final straw for TLC.

Coupon Cabin must have repeatedly tried to work with her and her final f*** you to them may have been just barely obnoxious by Kate standards, but it was enough to make Scott realize the business relationship would never work.

I think she hit the lowest last season, what was it, 560K for the Space Camp episode? The lowest prior to that may have been in her 2011 season, shortly before cancellation. I recall something in the mid-600K range a couple of times there.

I wouldn't be surprised to see better ratings next week, IF it is well advertised that it is the tups' b'day episode. Let's see if K8 herself---and TLC---actually does some work to promote it. Seeing as it may be the last for a while.

From the sound of it, TLC is showing the "real Kate", just like in the RV episodes. All the tantrums and meltdowns and ugliness, ruining what should be fun activities--the gloves are off. Didn't she declare herself to be a new, improved, mellower Kate when the show came back? And now they are showing everyone that her claim to have mellowed was a complete lie. She hasn't changed at all, and she never will. I don't think she's capable of change. She thinks her dramatics are what makes good TV, but all she's doing is ruining her show and scarring her kids for life (and setting a terrible example for the kids to follow). They never see to just have a pleasant time, they never get to just enjoy things. And I noticed from FB comments that even fans can't understand why she doesn't just let the kids enjoy activities rather than butting in and making it all about her. No way should she have gone to space camp, for example, That should have been just for the kids. But she just can't let the cameras roll without her in the frame. She is that narcissistic. Her claim that she doesn't win, it seems, applies to camera time and attention. She feels like she needs to compete with her own children--and defeat them--for all the attention. That's what two-year-olds do . Parents know when to take a backseat and let the kids shine. She just can't let that happen.

Layla said...

I wonder what the execs at TLC are thinking right now. First Kate bailed on her own tweet party last night after telling her fans she'd be there, and then the poor ratings for last night's episode. K+8 hasn't broken a million viewers for any episode for the last 18 months. They must be breathing a sight of relief to be rid of her, at least for awhile (I do think they will do some catch-up filming in the future).

I saw on the TLC Facebook page that they are starting a new mega-family show in the fall. I guess trying to recapture the audience of the original Duggar show. They are moving forward, and none of their shows is centered around a shrieking banshee of a mother. If they had any hesitation about cutting Kate loose, they should be feeling certain about it by now.

Someone on FB really has Kate's number. "Fans" have a better memory than Kate. How stupid can one woman be?
XXXXX She should go back to grammar school. "Never visited NE before"? Really. Is she really that stupid or just self centered that nothing around her matters. Remember when she used to claim she was a "marathon runner". Never mind her cheating/lying/riding her way through the Las Vegas Marathon. She participated in a "run" in Connecticut where she met her "old family member friend" Emily. Visit #1 to NE: Kate and kids to run in Rod Dixon's Kid's Marathon in Connecticut June 2012. Visit #2 Mass. and Maine. August 2014. This is where she hires "old family friend Emily" to help w/ the overdosed, medicated kids. http://radaronline.com/.../kate-gosselin-steve-neild.../ (Guess Steve the "body guard" isn't good at handing out drugs. Special friend "Emily" did a little too much communicating via direct messages w/ a Kate "friend" and Kate hasn't spoken to her since. Told too much of how the kids, C and A were medicated. Low and behold, the woman who has never before been to any New England states "takes" the kids to Vermont. Of course not one of the trips would have ever happened if Kate wasn't paid to be there, all expenses paid courtesy TLC, along w/ Kate getting a little pay check. Is she really this stupid? She is just like Trump, his followers will believe anything.

Over And Out (previous post) your "Close To You" reference reminded me of a Carpenters documentary I just watched. Most of us of a certain age remember that Karen suffered from anorexia, and died at 32. But this show delved into the roots of Karen's eating disorder, according to the friends interviewed: an impossible-to-please mother who thought the sun rose and set on Karen's older brother Richard, but couldn't even tell Karen she loved her.

Hey, TFW, before you joke about skeletons, go to YouTube and find footage of this talented, spirited, lovely young woman who seemed to have it all, but who starved herself to death. Eating disorders aren't funny. And, heads up -- boys can have them, too.

Ya know, at this point, K8 should be ready to just 'fess up about Skeve. I mean, he's accompanied them on endless TLC trips, and clearly on non-TLC trips as well (the book tours, LV marathon, CT run event, Celebrity Apprentice, Celebrity Wife Swap [not confirmed, but does anyone doubt it?]), why not just SAY what's going on? Her kids HAVE to know, and at some point, someone's just gonna blurt it out. If they don't say it now, one of them is certainly going to say it later.

It just seems so juvenile to pretend you DON'T have this constant companion, who looks an awful lot like a consort, and expect everyone around you to act like he's not there. I get it, he's PAID to be under the radar. I guess the question at this point is, is he paid to be under the covers? Anyone who's paid any attention to her and this show over time HAS to be asking this question.
