Kate to star in TLC's 'Kate Plus Date' about dating

A post shared by Whitney Way Thore⚡️ (@whitneywaythore) on


Kate's last date, with businessman actor Vann, ended with a painfully awkward kiss.

In a brief blurb today, People reported that Kate is nervous and excited about her upcoming show. People revealed glaringly scant other details, like how many episodes will be made or when it will air.

Has Kate breathed a word about this on social media other than her coy comments before? I'm wondering if TLC really authorized her to spill the beans about this. They usually seem to wait for at least a premiere date before announcing things. Her brief quote almost looks like something said in confidence to Coyne, like via text or something. Oh, I hope Kate gets in big time trouble with TLC for blabbing about this, haha.

a camera crew will be there! I’ll be safe!” she says. “And the person will have been vetted by a matchmaker.”

There is nothing inherently unsafe about online dating. The statistics are soaring about the number of couples marrying from online dating and the marriages being solid and lasting, and anything dangerous from online dating is no more dangerous than meeting someone offline. Speculation is you have a much bigger pool to choose from rather than just the local boy or somebody at your small church who maybe ultimately isn't right for you. You can really narrow it down and find your very best match online now.

If your judgement is bad in general, it will be bad online. If your judgement is good, it will be good online. Kate has terrible judgement, so any man she dates either online or not she will struggle to make good decisions about.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I swear all the Kate quotes sound like texts, doctored up by Coyne with grammar and all that to make it sound like something said live and in person. Lol, please.

Sad but true said...

I think that she’s still got some sort of contract with TLC and they’ve got to honor it or she will sue.
_____

I don't think that TLC has ANY contractual obligation to K8. Don't forget, she was off their air for nearly 3 years ("10-year anniversary" to the contrary, LOL), and I think she was more than willing to come back on any terms offered. The power is all on their side---and even more so when her ratings are in the toilet--- why should they accept anything less?

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Did the kids finally flat out refuse?


&&&

100% it has something to do with it. They got away with not filming Collin, barely, they kind of did camera tricks and all that to constantly make it hard to tell who all was there--but the exec's HAVE to be thinking if anyone else refuses now it's just embarrassing to film the remaining. They can't drop like flies, it just looks bad! You can only have so many excuses why various kids aren't around.

Negative. TLC finally posted a rehash of the People piece on "TLCme" (ugh) and linked it to both the FB page they run for her and their own. She's kept her mouth shut so far. I can only imagine the avalanche of comments to come.

Maybe because it will have a glaringly scant run on tv?

However, should it air at all, I'll look forward to your recap. (Note singular reference. How long can this show last anyway?)

I agree. Entertainment contracts just aren't written out this way. There is never anything that would say you HAVE to film, they always give themselves an out. I've seen some pilot/13 episode contracts before. There's a million outs. It would really be reckless to agree you MUST film. What if they get like 10,000 in ratings one episode? They HAVE to go on to film and lose money? That makes no sense. What's funny is they are almost always written the opposite, that KATE must film no matter what until TLC says she won't. They're in charge, it's just how all contracts are written.

It's just dollars in dollars out. If they can make something for a song with a known brand and cheap out like crazy on it, maybe it makes sense to them to throw some garbage together and let it air. What else they got going on, more fat people?

This stuff almost always coincides with a press release from TLC. Would they really just let Kate announce this herself? That wouldn't be her pattern!!

Oh God, I will die laughing if this was unauthorized. Haha!!!!

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...



ncgirl (#74), it's hilarious that she blames quitting running on her super-attentive parenting. The kids are gone 8 hours a day during the school year -- she could run a marathon every day.


&&&

I've given up hope on a real journalist actually asking her what the hell she does all day while the kids are in school. No, do NOT let her get away with claiming to do 8 hours of errands and chores a day. I want an accounting.

I would kill for 8 hours extra in the day. I'd be at the gym every day, work would get done around the house, and there would be plenty of time to relax too. If you're letting yourself go with that kind of lifestyle that's just sad.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Admin (#2), the whole thing about having someone vetted is just Schmoopy's way of kicking Jon in the nads once again. The subtext is very clear...she'll never make a mistake like THAT again!

NJGal51 said...

“And the person will have been vetted by a matchmaker.”
========
By “matchmaker” does she mean open casting call? Maybe all the rejects from “The Bachelorette” can apply.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


I'd rather see a TLC crossover show about Kate Gosselin dating Matt Roloff. That might pique some interest.

&&&

I'd go for that. They could cut to scenes of Amy trying to act like she's not jealous at all no sir, then casually just not inviting his girlfriend to her latest family gathering. Followed by cutting to the much happier and well adjusted, drama-free kids.

Tee-hee, I really do enjoy that show when I tune in.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


capecodmama (46) - I don't think much more information has been released yet, except that the bus had the right-of-way, so I'm sure the focus of the investigation will be on what occurred moments before the semi hit it. Such a terrible accident.

&&&

I just read the article, and it reminded me a lot of the Marshall University plane crash decades ago that took out practically the whole football team and some coaches and boosters. They were left with injured players who had stayed home and some second string guys.

They made a fantastic film, We are Marshall, that was about the slow, long recovery back from a team in shatters. Had me bawling the last half hour. You gotta get back on the field, do it for the boys.

Layla said...

How many times does TLC think people will tune in to watch Kate go on a date? Maybe some will for the first episode to see what it's all about, but after that--why bother? The one dating episode they did air--which was hyped like crazy--flopped. How can TLC justify signing up for a show that's a guaranteed failure? People can't stand Kate. They still tuned in to K+8 (in ever decreasing numbers) to see the kids grow up. And TLC thought it was a good idea to take the least-liked person on a failing show and give her a show of her own? They deserve the embarrassment that's coming their way. And someone (whoever it is who keeps pushing for that awful woman) needs to be fired. I'm just wondering how many episodes it will take before they shut this down for good.

Looking at the comments, I have yet to see anyone say they want to watch this. Even the "positive" comments are just people saying, "If you don't like her, then don't watch!". Was this the reception TLC was expecting for their big announcement? Or are they starting to realize they made a big mistake?

Jamesvader1194 said...

I have to wonder what TLC is thinking with this.It's not like her date episode got alot of viewers.Even if it did get over 1 million,it was one episode,so it's not like it was something special.@Admin,i think TLC and Kate are realizing that the show is pretty much done,mostly because without Collin and another season without him would be awkward.Who the hell knows if he's coming home at this point.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


"I won’t be just doing some scary online thing,” she says. “I mean, online dating, seriously — I put my profile in there and people will know who it is within 90 seconds. No, this is probably the safest way for me to date, let's be honest."

****

Actually, many celebs have done online dating without any issues at all. They can go on sites that only allow women to contact the men first, which is a very popular way to do online dating now because women prefer that.

Amy Schumer had a very successful relationship with a nice man for a couple years, she met him online. They parted ways eventually for unknown reasons and I don't believe she met her current husband online, but she hadn't nothing bad to say about her online relationship. Suffice it to say she is a thousand times more famous than Kate, her star power right now is insane.

Martha Stewart, Jenny McCarthy, Andy Cohen, and good ole Carrie Ann Inaba have all gone on record as using, and meeting, others on online dating sites. So no Kate, wrong again, you are not cut off from online dating because you are a celebrity. They can slum it online too.

As an aside to this tragedy, I learned today that my great-nephew tried out for that team (Broncos) last year, but wasn't accepted. I had no idea. It is a strange mix of emotions to think - what if, and then thank God, and then how very sad you feel for the families who have lost their loved ones in the crash. This accident has left everyone stunned.

Jamesvader1194 said...

@Layla Most comments i saw were the usual"She's a single mom of 8,don't judge her."the typical comments.To be honest,even if were all wrong about Kate,it really doesn't stop the low viewer count and like you,i seriously don't believe anyone will be interested in this,apart from her loyal fans.

It's crazy. Some of the boys were like, wait I sprained my ankle wasn't on the plane and that's why I'm alive....They struggled with it. It's like those I almost died on 9/11 people who missed their flight. Some chick from MTV's Real World was one of those, she was on the Boston flight but overslept.

Former Lurker said...

I still can't figure out what the heck TLC is thinking. There's no way this show would be interesting or a ratings grabber. Even if it's cheap to produce, I would think they would be better off airing reruns of some other more popular show than wasting time and money on this garbage.

I posted this on the last thread, but just want to put it here again for anyone who missed that dating episode a couple of years ago, or if anyone wants to revisit the comments from that boring episode as well as the mediocre ratings it brought:

Looking back on what a disaster her fake dating episode was when it aired on January 19, 2016, here's a recap of the awkward, scripted episode:

https://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/kate-plus-8-recap-kate-gosselin-goes-on-awkward-first-blind-date-w162086/amp/

And, here's our discussion about that episode:

On the second page of comments, here's the ratings report:

Sad but true said... 58
Ratings are out for Tuesday. K8's numbers went down, to 1.079mm viewers, and an 0.34 share. Almost 300K viewers tuned out after Little Couple.

From the previous thread:

NJGal51 said... 98
Well Milo posted a picture of her daughter (from the back) showing her long hair. Nick_moi asked her if she’d seen that TFW has a new show coming. Milo’s answer:

Yes... kind a new this was coming. Kids as teens and with one son absent... they need some privacy. Only natural that mom Kate would step up and take the job on on herself!

&&&&&&&&&&

Hmm, Milo's pic of the back of her daughter shows the name and slogan of a diner: Metro Diner, "Where the Locals Eat".

They have locations in eleven states, including where some of us have speculated is Milo's location.

Also, there are more comments on her IG conversation:

miloandjack2016@nick_moy Lets see if she will confirm it?? Crazy how TLC puts thst out there ahead of her??

nick_moy@miloandjack2016 well maybe she can finally find some happiness for herself, instead of just giving and sacrificing everything for her kids.. Just hope she find someone because of love and not because of loneliness.

Former Lurker said...

It really is strange how this story popped up in People today but TFW still hadn't said anything about it. Any other person would have tweeted a link to the story and made a comment there and in Instagram. She is so odd.

Former Lurker said...

By the way, where's Tucker's Mom? She hasn't posted in several days. Lol, she'll probably be surprised at how much catching up she has to do now.

Former Lurker said...

I just realized something about this paragraph from the People article:

In fall 2019, her two eldest children — twins Mady and Cara, both 17 — will go off to college, leaving Gosselin at home with 13-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Joel, Alexis, Hannah and Leah. (Collin is enrolled in a program away from home to help him reach his full potential.)

&&&&&&&&&&&

It appears that old Kate Coyne revealed she knows more about the situation with Collin. That paragraph is essentially saying that when M & C go off to college in the fall of 2019, only the five will be left at home. Coyne knows that Collin STILL won't be back home a year and a half from now!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

So which TFW will be on this show? The demure coquette who only let Vann the Mann kiss her on the cheek? Or the wild girl who was already drinking before she got to the bar, let some strange dude lick her foot, and then woke up hung over while the cameras rolled?

Rae Barnes said...

Can you imagine how embarrassed the kids will be with her showing the world her dating with strangers set up to make a show? If they weren't embarrassed/ashamed before from her decisions they certainly will be now. Dating privately is something special, dating for some ratings is totally FAKE!!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Any innocent guy thinking she's just an ordinary divorcee looking for love might be intimidated to know she has her own hair person (Uncle Ronnie) and makeup person (substitute spouse Deanna). And that she's been renovated cosmetically from roots to tattooed ankle.

TFW once claimed about herself on the show, "What you see is what you get."
Maybe she meant, "What I can pay for is what you get."

MikeB said...

This is going to be scripted reality TV at its worst. You know TLC has a plan for how it is going to work. My guess is she will be introduced to a new guy each week and she'll critique the date in her couch interview at the end. Season ending episode will be her deciding which guy was the best and hope to get a second season based on her budding relationship.

I think this will be a knock-off of NBC's show "First Dates" except instead of new couples each week it will just be a new guy for Kate. No way TLC just lets her wing it, they have a script and she is going to be sticking to it.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

MikeB (#33), oh, absolutely it'll be scripted. And there will be manufactured drama to keep it interesting.

Remember that nonsense with the twins' Sweet 16 with the "last-minute" venue change? But...tada...there was Brownie at the ready with crafts! And all the guests amazingly found the new location at the last minute! And...wait for it...here's an ice cream truck! Heifer, please.

Layla said...

awww, I haven't seen this story trending anywhere. It popped up on my homepage for about an hour, then disappeared. Poor Milo will be combing every site on the net so she can crow about how Kate is still newsworthy, but it may take some real work to find anything.

DWINDLE said...

I am here for you, ladies. G'mon on now, group hand hold. For those of you who dont know me, I am OG (google it) but I am back in your hour of hilarity.
Let's face it, the kids are ruined emotionally so if their mother wants to tramp around some MORE on TV, let's hope little more damage can be done.
What is she, nearing 50 now? Well, every woman should date and heartily, but this one thinks she is still all that plus a bag of chips. Expensive ones only, of course.
At least she has finally accepted that her soul is so foul, any male must be paid heartily to be near her for more than an hour.
hehehe. That Progressive Insurance commercial with Flo and her 'twin sister' who just bought a house and is on the cycle in her living room? I swear the sister is modeled after Kate. Next time it's on, try to catch it.
I havent watched anything Kate in years, so what is her favorite expression now? Will she go on these dates chomping on gum or with a big 8 stretched across the store bought chest? I challenge all 15-ers to a Rumspringa party: every time she chomps, cackles, says her annoying word, or grins her neon plastic teeth, have a virtual swig. It's on me!
Till next time!

DWINDLE said...

DWINDLE!!! Auntie Ann came back & now you’re here too. It’s a good day after all!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

DWINDLE!!! YAY!!! What a wonderful treat!!!
If I had known it was so easy to summon you, I would have tried much sooner!

Yes, the rumspringa will flow when this crapfest airs. I'm still physically unable to tolerate the sound of TFW's voice, so I shall continue boycotting, but everyone is entitled to follow their own hearts. And I'm sure the recaps will be comedy gold!

Kylie said...

'I'm forcing myself to do this' - LOLOL. What a load of crap. She's been begging for this for years. I cannot believe TLC is still interested in this inept, unintelligent, deadbeat and hated individual.

Kylie said...

Actually, when you think about it, it is because she is so hated that draws in viewers and that really is all TLC is about - controversy. She fits that bill perfectly.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Kylie (#44), yeah, what a martyr, right?
What self-respecting guy would subject himself to that kind of attitude...going out with a woman who has publicly stated she really isn't looking to meet someone?

And how incredibly silly is it to connect the twins leaving with her being all alone? When they go, there'll be FIVE 15-year-olds still at home who need their mother's love, attention and guidance, through what might be some of the most difficult social and emotionally challenging years of their lives.

Wowser said...

If it’s scripted, she’s hosed!! She couldn’t act herself out of a paper bag. It’s going to be cringeworthy-right up there with her daughters and their today show interview! Welcome back Dwindle!!

Wowser said...

And Mr. millionaire was smart enough to figure out she was using him for filming -not because she was genuinely interested in him as a person. She uses everybody -which is why she has no one -unless Tlc is paying them. He was smart to cut bait and run like hell right before filming was to start. And that’s probably why she only got a 3-show season. They should get that crazy bachelor from the bachelorette show who had a foot fetish. Kate’s big toe would keep him busy for hours. Lol!!!

JM said...

You know, this dating show concept really shows how she doesn't have many close friends from neighbors, church or other parents at the school, or still may not be close to her family. I'm older than her and still date now and then. I have family that have introduced me to co-workers or church members; I've met others through my church or people church members know; met some through co-worker connections; through friends I've met at exercise classes or working out. Alot of times its a group get together where I meet guys through friends. If she had all that, and she just now decided to date, she'd have some decent connections for meeting someone. She makes it sound like you have to go meet a stranger on the street to date and how scary that could be. I also don't think she really wants to date nor that the kids are pushing her (except for what someone said, to get her focus on someone else and not them, like the dogs do that for them too). She is just doing it for the money. I also think there may be limitations placed on the filming of the kids now.
And then there is her attitude about the kids and being so tired. She is just lazy. Look at this article - she is nowhere near this woman's attitude -

I feel particularly sorry for the twins.

How humiliating for them, they can't escape her.

James - I agree. I doubt we'd need two hands to count on our fingers how many loyal fans she really has. At first there might be curiosity viewers to watch that train wreck of a woman chug along for a few more miles but after that the numbers will probably drop. That is, if this show actually airs in the first place.

Former Lurker said...

JM #49, I had similar thoughts this morning and was just coming here to post about that. She really has no family or friends in her life, and doesn't get out for any activities at all. We've said it before, she leads a very isolated and boring life. Other than her toxic personality, that is the main reason why she's been all alone these last eight or nine years.

Like you've mentioned, I have friends and family members who have met dates, significant others, and even future spouses through their connections and activities. My husband's brother met his wife through his job. His other brother met his girlfriend at a neighbor's barbecue. I know people who have met at weddings, at school events, at sporting events, at the gym, through set ups by family or friends, etc.

TFW has absolutely no social life, no interests of her own or even things she does with her kids. She goes nowhere and does nothing, which is clearly illustrated on her Instagram. I've posted before about how almost every single pic she posts is inside her house or on their property, other than the pics that are from an episode. She really has no life.

Well, it doesn't even matter because this show isn't at all about her wanting a date or a relationship. It's a silly, scripted joke of a show for a woman who has refused to get a real job ever since she got TLC's attention and a taste of fame and fortune all because she schemed and manipulated her HOM pregnancy.

Layla said...

Vetted by a matchmaker? HA! I mentioned recently that the "random" guy from the DC Cupcakes episode was actually a model. I'd be willing to bet TLC will go to the same agency (THE Artist Agency) to get a steady supply of camera-ready "dates" for Kate. That way they won't have to have any casting calls or approach random men on the street to find victims...errr, I mean dates.

Sad but true said...

The story did make a few radio shows, based on some of her Twitter comments---I'm sure most coverage was of the "oh no not again" variety.

I don't think we have to worry about that. This new show is supposed to premiere this fall. By the time M and C go off to college in the fall of 2019, this joke of a show should be long gone.

Matt met his girlfriend at work, Amy met her boyfriend at a gathering of friends, I think some kind of pool party, through mutual friends. You have to put yourself in situations where you might meet other single people. If you don't ever go to work or accept invitations for bbq's and pool parties, you never will meet anyone.

It appears that old Kate Coyne revealed she knows more about the situation with Collin.

Oh yeah, I can just see the drool dripping out of the corner of her mouth when wrote that article. She couldn't wait to blab this story and and hint that she's privy to the whereabouts of Collin.. She's as despicable as that other Kate.

jamesvader1194 said...

@Former Lurker Can we be sure of that?Because i don't think anyone here thought TLC would be dumb enough to do a dating serious but they are and do we know if Mady and Cara are going to college?At this point,i wouldn't be surprise if TLC just decided to rename the show to "Growing up Gosselin"for the reminding kids who'd still want to film.If there are any that still do,that is.

Not sure why that horrible woman (Coyne) feels it is necessary to drudge this up. It does not make TFW or Mady look very good.

The woman has really angled a career as a celebrity talking head, only she rarely says anything substantial or significant, it's canned answers and it's clear she has no source on most of her comments. I see her big head popping up in the most random of places commenting! Jack of all trades, master of none. She pops up from time to time to say something about say, the royals, shit everybody already knows--Prince Harry at the end of the day just prefers a quiet dinner at home with close friends, roast a chicken and bake cookies.

Thanks, Coyne, super insightful. Like you have ANY source even remotely close to that guy or have any clue what you're talking about! LOL

She does seem particularly giddy about her "in" with Kate, but I really think it's because she has no such in with the vast majority of the other celebs she blah-blah's about. And as others have pointed out, she seems to have quite an edge to her, seems to be equally giddy to report on what at the end of the day is a terribly tragic estrangement between children and their loving father. It's not something to pop popcorn over, Coyne.

She gave up running because she became bored with it.

&&&

That's one of the biggest things I can't stand about her is how unauthentic she is. She DID give up running because she got bored of it, just be honest. I think she thought this was a way to get some exercise in and maybe some sponsors and freebies (she loves raiding those sponsor tents at events) but when they didn't pan out so much she lost interest.

Just.be.honest. It would be a lot more easier to handle.

Heck, people get tired of stuff all the time. I once was really into scrapbooking, but grew tired of it after a couple years. It's not that big of a deal, I own that I lost interest, and I moved on, packed the stuff away. What's the big deal? There is no need to lie about what happens to normal people, you move on from things you get sick of.

Why oh Why is People Magazine bringing up that old (and I think quite mean) comment from the twins about their lack of a relationship with their father? Are they desperately trying to create some relevance or interest in the tired,stale Kate had 8 boring saga. Who doesn't know, at this point, that Kate only wants money and fame in whatever way she possibly can get it. She will not move on from her "glory days" of Jon and Kate Plus 8. No one cares about whom she dates or doesn't date. TLC needs to get some new programming staff (along with People Mag).

In other words, someone who's never around...and who doesn't "suffocate" her. How about the other way around?
So sad how Collin has effectively been erased from existence in this family. Those pictures of the "happy family" without him will surely hurt him.

It's not so much what People's Kate Coyne might or might not know that I'm interested in. It's that this is quite a revelation in the article to already presume that Collin STILL will not be home in the fall of 2019 when
M and C leave for college.

That's the most newsworthy part of the entire article and I wish someone would have highlighted that in any other articles that picked it up.

If Collin is already presumed to not be back home by the fall of 2029, it's looking more and more likely that the predictions made here about him never returning to that house are correct. TFW should really be asked about that. How can she know now that Collin won't be back home a year and a half from now? The only way to know that now would be if she knew all along that returning him to the home was never a goal of whatever therapy or help he's been getting.

As usual, TFW has been lying all along. She's known from Day One that, for whatever reason, Collin was removed from that house and would never be returning.

I'm pretty convinced Coyne doesn't know diddly squat about Collin other than B.S. Kate may tell her (for all Coyne knows the kid's coming home tomorrow), but, I do think it's a rather interesting way to word things such that she's achieved buy in from others that he's out of the home, no questions asked. Quite remarkable, but she pulled it off.

That's exactly what she's saying, she doesn't even attempt to hide her true intentions. That's a GREAT way to start off a relationship, I'm used to being on my own so could you, like, not be around? Super healthy there.

The only thing I've heard about guys who travel for work is that it can be nice if YOU travel or are away a lot too because you understand each other. But not that you WANT time apart! Yeesh!

It's well documented the boys are ruthless about leaks. They don't allow it. They can and will sue the pants off you. They have even planted fake rumors among friends to see if someone will tell the press. If they do, they cut them off and sue. I don't think they're doing it to be jerks, I think they do it because they decided a long time ago the press was not going to beat them down like they did their mom. They wanted firm boundaries lie she was not able to establish.

If something truthful comes out about them it's only because they wanted it to. So yeah, Coyne's "source" on that is bogus.

Remarkable, frustrating and sickening.

If TFW does a little press tour in the fall to promote this garbage dating show I just wish that someone interviewing her would for once press her and ask her where her son is, how long he's been gone, and if he's ever coming home again. But, I realize hope is futile because they'll all softball it and stick to the TLC script.

It's so damn...fake.
It's sad.

It appears that old Kate Coyne revealed she knows more about the situation with Collin. That paragraph is essentially saying that when M & C go off to college in the fall of 2019, only the five will be left at home. Coyne knows that Collin STILL won't be back home a year and a half from now!

I think she thinks people are as dumb as she is, and won't keep track of and track things she says, so she can say what she likes and change things up whenever she wants. It's like she has no understanding that there's this thing called the internet and it's keeping a running log of what she says and does. It's VERY clear from history she has angled for a dating show for years, and if our blog historian was here I'm sure she would be cataloguing all the evidence out for us. It's there.

Her constant gas lighting may have worked in 1999 when nobody could document anything easily. It's a different world now.

Can you imagine just trying to have a normal everyday conversation with her? What do you think of this FB thing, for instance.

What do you think of all this Facebook stuff, is a question Im sure that comes up on a lot of first dates this week. How can one sit there and idiotically not know what their date is talking about?

I would ask the question just to make sure nobody is living under a rock, like a test.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

She tried with Van, she made a half effort to ask about him, but by the end of the date I had heard next to nothing about him (certainly little to nothing about his surely fascinating history at Anapolis), and mostly about Kate and how she made a mistake with Jon. Van doesn't know of any of that, he probably had little idea what the hell she was even talking about. Yowser!

A good dating tip I've read about is make a conscious effort to try to get the other person talking way more about themselves than you talk about yourself. When you both do that, suddenly it works out to be about 50-50 and it can really help smooth away the awkwardness and genuinely help start to get to know someone. When you're talking, you're not listening.

&&&

I think Coyne's exploded or done something wrong as to her own twins and wants justification for it as "just a mom of multiples." Kate gives her that justification, that kinship. She feels a weird kinship with her, even though having twins is nothing like having high order multiples.

Remember, she first popped up in the scene defending Kate as just a tired mom of 8 kids when everyone else was turning on Kate. All us women have been there where we just want to snap and maybe have.

No, no we haven't. Please don't speak for everyone.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


She works for People for god's sake, she's not a 60 Minutes reporter doing in-depth research.

&&&&

So, it's okay for a reporter to be trite and meaningless because you work for People? People used to be a thoughtful and intentional magazine, with meaningful articles that were factually accurate. They stayed away from rumor and focused on facts, and they broadened their articles beyond just celebrities, writing interesting and informative articles about current events, politics, and just generally interesting people. In particular, I vividly recall an article about 8 years ago about an intellectually disabled mother from the Chicago area who was keeping her child in her custody with the support of intensive services. I took great interest in it as I have spent my career in child welfare, and am a big supporter of maintaining children in the home and servicing parents in the home when it is safe to do so. I was surprised and pleased to see an article talking about all the positives of allowing this child to stay in the home, and that generally had a positive take on the situation. This from People! That article was meaningful, and a good use of any reader's time.

Somewhere along the way they strayed far from the good magazine they used to be, and Coyne is in part responsible for their diminished quality. She has done her part to contribute nothing of value to the publication.

My point is Coyne usually regurgitates information that has already been widely disseminated as if it's her own or original. Practically her only direct source is Kate, and she slobbers all over it. Whether you have personally seen information she is spitting out or care about it I haven't the first clue, nor do I care. The fact that a subject doesn't interest you does not make Coyne knowledgeable about it because you learned something you didn't know from her. You also could have learned it by googling.

Your claim was that "everyone knows" what Harry does at the end of the day. No, everyone does not. I'd venture to guess that 99% of the population does not know...or care. Speak for yourself, please.


&&&

As usual, you are being literal to an absurd level. OBVIOUSLY not evernote knows everything about every story out there. I was referring to to those who even loosely follow it or even barely follow it, it's common knowledge the boys have shaped out to be rather low key homebodies. I assume most people who are listening to Coyne blab on about the royals at least know a tiny bit about them. Anyway, it's not the POINT that Coyne may be saying something you don't know. The point is, Coyne says stuff that is common knowledge in that subject and therefore, trite and unhelpful. The point is, Coyne is not an "expert" nor does she have a "source." She is someone who reads internet articles.

However, judging by the ratings for the last royal wedding, it is far more than just 99 percent of the world that doesn't care. 23 million people in the U.S. alone watched, blowing the ratings for Diana's wedding out of the water. Interest in the royals is increasing, not decreasing. That's 23 times the ratings a Kate Plus 8 episode gets. In the Uk, about 27 million watched, which is about 41 percent of the entire population, which is approaching HALF the population, and that population includes babies and young children who wouldn't even understand it, so I take them out of the equation as not even counting. So frankly, you don't know what you're talking about when you throw out "99 percent don't care." You're simply wrong.

AuntieAnn said...

Admin and Former Lurker, thanks for the link back. I read it and oh gawd. If that night out with Van is any indication of what Kate Plus Date will be like, the show is doomed.

He leans in to go for a little kiss, and she turns away. She actually turns away! He lands on her cheek. I've heard of the Puritans but this is ridiculous. Why is she being so unnaturally prudish?


Ha! Now that's awkward. What was she afraid he'd do, stick his tongue down her throat? She wouldn't even let Jon cuddle her on camera. She's as cold as a salamander.

Kate's all talk when it comes to selling herself on the interview couch in her basement but falls short when it comes to delivering the goods and like everything else she does, dating will be no different.

She dedicated a post on her IG to it, posting a pic of a couple dancing at their wedding and on the pic it says, "My mom told me 'Make sure you marry someone who makes you laugh when you're mad' and that's some of the best advice I've heard." Then, Milo posted this:

That these "dates" will appear serendipitously without a casting call and script? Sometimes I am overwhelmed by the apparent stupidity of K8's fans.

If it's just one episode, the format could be like the old Dating Game. Three guys sit behind a screen. Kate questions them and chooses one.

I dunno, it's either a blow job or a snow job. Sometimes I think the people at TLC just like to make Kate look foolish, which isn't hard to do. I don't think Kate cares what she looks like just as long as she can keep her face out there and collect the cash.

Tucker's Mom said...

I also think that even though it appears this mess of a "dating" show is green-lighted by TLC, it's no guarantee it'll make it to air. Kate went full steam ahead announcing "Twist of Kate" and we know for certain she even filmed a bit, but it never saw the light of day.
I think a problem-well one of the many problems-TLC will have is that it will be difficult, if not impossible, to sell this show as authentic.
Audiences need at least some semblance of authenticity to buy into the premise of a show and the outcomes with regards to the cast of characters.
What with Kate assuring everyone she wants a guy around just sometimes, because he'll get on her nerves and cramp her style and OMG, he'd better travel or have his own apartment, because being with anyone (even her kids) all the time is just not for Kate.
I think TLC will have to go to central casting looking for men who want to hug a cactus.

I grew up where she's from. She was... not well-liked. My cousin is in the hair industry and knew her stylist, pre-fame. Part of the reason Kate's hair was so atrocious was that she designed and demanded it be that way - any professional advice was ignored and Kate threw her champagne across the salon more than once (they switched to plastic just because of her). Clearly TLC smacked that attitude and style right off her head, and now she's back to begging for money in exchange for... well, she's given up all her dignity. What's left?

I remember watching a program about that serial killer Rodney Alcala. He was a slimy creep and thankfully after that woman met him when he came around the partition, she got a bad vibe from him and cancelled the date. He's sitting on death row now.

There didn't seem to be much concern about vetting on that show back in the 70's, which in hindsight, should have been a priority. IIRC though, the dates were always chaperoned, so at least there was at that safety net.

TFW is the devil TLC knows, so her so-so numbers -- achieved with a fairly low budget -- are less of a risk than trying out a brand new entity.

I was just trying to figure how she might be looking at it? I agree it was an "odd" was to look at potential mate. But it's her life. She has her reasons I am sure. :)

"She has her reasons"??? Of course she does, this is not about dating at all, it's about more screen time for Mommy Dearest. The only thing that redeems this proposition for me is that she will hopefully be leaving her kids out of it for the foreseeable future. OTOH, TLC knows that Kate by herself is not a draw, so I'm sure the kids will be obligated to take part. I see a big mess ahead.

Her comment about the man traveling for business so she can be on her own said it all. There is no blood running warm in her veins for a true partner or healthy relationship. She is searching for an object that can cater to her needs, whatever those are, not a man. There was nothing at all in any of her comments about what may be right for the man or healthy for the relationship. Relationships where spouses travel can be perfectly healthy, but that’s not the point. As usual, she is a selfish and narcissistic beast.

Tucker's Mom (#109), yep, TFW typed with her own talons that "one week home, one week away" was what worked best for her family. She had 8 beautiful little children, and wanted to only be there for 50% of their lives. It's chilling, actually.

Anonymous said...

Wendy Williams talked about Kate's new dating show today on her show....saying things like (I may be paraphrasing...but very little): Kate has a terrible personality, it would be more fun "watching water dry on a linoleum floor"(rather than watching Kate date), "she's mean". Also Wendy said she is attractive physically but that her looks were purchased (which is fine according to Wendy).

@Tucker's Mom but that more then begs the question though.If this is going to be a TLC series,then why is TLC even bothering wasting time and money on a show thats more then likely going to fail?.TLC has cancelled shows in the past for low ratings but with Kate they refuse to get rid of her.Why?What makes Kate so special that TLC needs to film her to the point where they don't care about ratings but with other shows they've done that.It's the most bizarre thing ever,like there's someone there at TLC that loves Kate so much.It reminds of this one person from this one show i use to watch where everyone hated that character but for some reason the writers continue to shove that character into people's faces.

Tucker's Mom said...

Note not one thing Kate has EVER said about finding a man again (and I can't say finding love, because I don't think Kate's capable of even knowing what that is with a man/partner) involves what she can bring to the table.
No:
I want to make someone happy
I want to share my life
I want to experience things which bring us closer
I want to take care of a man and make him happy
I want to feel like I can be a special and positive part of HIS family

etc....

It's just me, me, me, me, MY kids, me, me

Tucker's Mom said...

Just the part about Kate moving on, thinking about herself and being alone makes me ill when I consider her 10-year old son was cast out of the house, all alone, never to return.
Look, I don't care that Kate films and have always just wanted the kids out of the spotlight and not beholden to filming and working all the time. But I have to say, I just do not get how Kate can do what she's done to her children, Collin especially, and accept that anyone would "root" for her and her happiness.
Not when Collin is in someplace that Kate and her mouthpiece can only refer to in euphemistic terms.

How can anyone watch this without thinking, "Hey, lady, where the F*CK is your son??".

Tucker's Mom said...

"TFW is the devil TLC knows, so her so-so numbers -- achieved with a fairly low budget -- are less of a risk than trying out a brand new entity. "
^^^^^
Exactly, Flimsy. Kate's been a solid bench warmer for years now.

I also think that even though it appears this mess of a "dating" show is green-lighted by TLC, it's no guarantee it'll make it to air. Kate went full steam ahead announcing "Twist of Kate" and we know for certain she even filmed a bit, but it never saw the light of day.
========
I agree and I think this may be why she hasn’t commented on it on either twitter or IG. That people article that “broke the story” may have been an unauthorized interview between Kate2 (Kate squared), or, as admin stated, text messages between Kate2 that KC turned into an article. Kate2 may have cooked this up between themselves to force TLC’s hand in announcing it. I wonder if TLC will run it by a test audience to see if it will fly.

Tucker's Mom said...

Wendy Williams ain't having none of Kate's b.s.
She can smell a fake a mile away.
Jon, otoh, she really liked.

Funny thing is, Kate's making this big "to do" about dating again and Jon's been in a relationship for a few years now, just quietly going about the business of living your life with someone else in it.
Kate acts like she's embarking on a mission to Mars.

It appears that the articles about this new disaster "dating" show, as well as the mention by Wendy Williams, has some people going to her IG and posting comments on her latest pic. I posted some yesterday. Here are the latest comments:

goldyierocksBoy did u get slam by Wendy

alwayshappyjoyBoycott sponsors of Kate plus Date. Why has this woman lived off her kids for so long? Is Collin still sent away? Now she wants a public dating show, that can NOT be good for the children. Dating for money, same old same old. Turning off TLC again!

alwayshappyjoySo the man is paid to date her? I knew her saying she wanted privacy was just another lie a long time ago. Everything she does it seems to be for money and involves someone else or making money off her own children. And she is worried about what Jon does with the kids? Look in the mirror at the user, Kate. Paying people to date her? That's stupid.

katileyyWhat a pathetic show idea. God id be so emabarrassed. How desperate to hold onto a sliver of fame. Gross.

Former Lurker said...

Milo's IG post with marriage advice for TFW that I posted last night in comment #104, has been liked by TFW. What a joke, as if this show is about TFW looking for a serious relationship and future husband. Her sheeple are so dumb.

ncgirl said...

"Kate threw her champagne across the salon more than once (they switched to plastic just because of her)."

She did this before becoming famous? How many champagne glasses did she throw at Jason and Uncle Ronnie? I know this story may not be true, but it sounds like TFW.

She was on Wendy Williams' show a while back so Wendy has met her.

JR said...

This will be the biggest disaster since the titanic...there’s no way this babbling idiot can carry a show by herself...this is a lot to do about nothing...I doubt it will ever get air time once they see this airhead in action. TLC is a glutton for punishment..

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Imagine...Jon managed to find a partner without a team of experts, or a camera crew, or a paycheck.

What kind of example is TFW setting for her children -- both the boys and the girls -- about dating? That the world is full of psychos, and you should avoid any relationships unless the person you like has been vetted by a professional? She is doing such profound emotional damage to her kids.

JR said...

Dating??? Such nonsense...it’s about money and nothing else...who the hell dates on tv?? She’s had years to date...that Milo can’t be this dense...can she???πŸ€”

JR said...

I can’t stand her!!! My heads gonna blow up! Please god make it stop!!

Wendy Williams also stated that Jon is now a stripper and part-time DJ. That was not fair or true about him being a stripper. I wonder how much the non-union actors will be paid to humiliate themselves on this love-fest.

We haven't heard from Joy for a while either...

Ingrid said...

She will expect a possible husband to be wealthy beside gone a lot. As long as she has a way to use his money she won't need him at home much. Of course there will be a prenup that keeps him out of her bank accounts.

She doesn't need camera men to keep her safe. She could have paid a matchmaker to find the guys, and Steve to protect her. She just wants the paycheck and her mug on tv again.

ncgirl said...

This is a Blind Item that could be Kate. I hope it's her because that means the show won't happen. But it could be someone like a Real Housewife.

"The greenlight for this reality show went straight to red when the female star of it stopped hooking up with the producer. He canceled the whole project. The show was a spinoff of a reality show that took the whole family from nobodies to C- listers."

Former Lurker said...

Lol, all this talk about dating. I'm now getting a dating ad on the bottom of this page: "Top Dating Sites 2018. Make love a priority and discover a better way to date."

There ya go, TFW! No need for TLC to act as matchmakers and screen the psychos out for you. No dragging a film crew around on your dates. You can actually try doing something all on your own for a change.

Former Lurker said...

Filming this fake date show will probably start soon. I hope people report sightings of this circus. I can't imagine where TLC will send them on a their phony, scripted date. They already did dinner in NY for the Vann episode.

Well, money AND attention. She's a narcissist. It's bordering on the ridiculous that there's even any discussion that the shrew is doing this for any other reason than money and attention. She's laughing up her sleeve because she thinks her sheep are buying this crap.

And she's in nirvana right now because her narc supply IV bag is bulging. It doesn't matter to her whether it comes from her fans or her haterz, people are talking about her.

Former Lurker said...

I still think it's SO odd that she hasn't commented at all on this new show. Who does that?! There isn't a reality TV person, or a real celeb, who wouldn't immediately tweet a link to the People article and probably also do an Instagram post about it. Why the silence? Does she want to act like it's no big deal, when everyone knows she's been dying to get her own show and must be thrilled to death to be back on TV.

Wendy also stated that Kate was 47 years old. LOL That's got to burn Kate.

RoxyHelen said...

If the kids aren't involved, excellent. I don't see why it matters what projects Kate does, alone. If she can finally make money without selling the kids' image, excellent, finally, it's about damn time.

I hope Collin is ok, wherever he is. I hope all the children are as ok as can be. They were born into a not so great family but so did lots of other kids and some managed to do well. I hope the G kids will pull through as well. I'm glad we don't know anything about Collin, current custody agreement,etc and I'm happy Kate rarely posts pics of the kids. They deserve privacy, here's hoping this is it, they're finally getting it.

It's almost comical the way she doesn't even try to fake good motives for seeking out a relationship. The mutual love and support that companionship brings, sharing life's ups and downs with a partner and best friend, the joy of making someone else happy. The satisfaction of the physical and sexual aspects of a relationship with someone you care deeply about.

There's just nothing warm blooded about her.

I'm betting the farm on this being an unauthorized leak. I'm not even sure Kate herself knew Coyne was running this article. No love fest tweet to Coyne thanking her? It's odd. It does not fit TLC's pattern to announce something this far in advance, and it does not fit TLC's pattern to let People do it before they run their press release.

This far out they don't have the first clue what their lineup is in the fall. I believe that they are noodling over a show like this and green lighting starting to piece it together and see what they can come up with under certain budgets, but I would be surprised if a single frame of film has been shot.

Watch the boys giggle when a man shows up at the door with flowers in his hand, ad nauseam.

Ha, here's another possible take on the secret dating show.... maybe she has decided that Steve has not stepped up and divorced his wife and proclaim his love for her! So she will date others to push him to make the move!

What could be more boring or unrealistic. I don’t think any kid that age wants to see their parent “hook up” with a bunch of different people. Jon was painted, by the sheeple, as a man-whore when he was dating different people but TFW is painted as a saint who is doing it all for the kids.

Will he be assigned to chaperone duties, or rode manager responsibilities? Or will he simply be there to select her clothing and dress her? Of course, BV, her Knight In Shining Armor, could volunteer to accompany her on the date and make sure that no haters are there to interfere.

Yeah, Jon got flack for dating.

What’s it called again when you’re paid to go on a date? Hmmm.

If TLC wants any type of draw from the 18-30 demographic, they would have to go the way of the Bachelor. That means alcohol will have to flow, showing Kate drunk and acting wild,, She would have to allow kissing, heavy flirting, nights swimming with bikini in a bubbly jacuzzi, and maybe an overnight date while Kate keeps saying I never want this date to end”.
Yeah, that’ll never happen!. Kate’s wound too tight. Kate doesn’t want romance. She doesn’t want to share her life with anyone. It’s always about what someone can do for HER.
This show will be a bore

ncgirl said...

Another blind item that sounds like Kate.

This looooooong time A list reality star all of you know has been raiding the trust funds of her kids to maintain her standard of living.

All This Is That said...

Is the premise of this show is that Kate finds true love, or is this just a scripted Kate on a date episode? Will it be revealed that she's found true love at last, and it's not Milo? I don't understand the purpose of this thing.

I hope the men are ball-less so that when these dates are over they really won't be missing anything.

I bet Jon is still laughing over the announcement of this show, saying, "Poor guys. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy."

&&&&

I was thinking that very thing about the oddity of just having some producer vet the guy you date.

First of all, the very fact that you're willing to date someone on a TV show is a red flag in and of itself, lol.

You know what the best way is to vet a boyfriend? Do it YOURSELF. With your own intuition, gut feelings, asking the right questions, listening carefully, meeting the people in HIS life, seeing how he lives, and it doesn't hurt to do a very cheap run of their criminal history and a free run on Megan's law. But a woman's gut often doesn't come out of nowhere. Your mother, grandmother, friends, teachers, and life experiences teach you how to vet. Kate has always had severe problems with judgment and the very idea her girls do not have a mother who serves as any kind of decent role model for making judgment calls about others is highly concerning.

Jerry Sandusky once had a clean criminal history too, but when you just have a bad feeling about things, go with it for gosh sakes!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I would love to hear TFW answer this question.

If you are genuinely, sincerely, truly looking for a partner, why not do it PRIVATELY? Why turn that decision into a TV show? TLC doesn't have any supernatural resources at their disposal for vetting potential dates. You could do it on your own. It's common knowledge that the presence of a camera immediately impacts the behavior of the participants. Not to mention the presence of an entire production crew. If you're "awnestly" challenging yourself to meet new people, why not give those potential relationships a fighting chance by doing it away from the public eye?

Let's assume for one moment giving her the benefit of the doubt she's actually trying to find the man of her dreams--one with lots of money makes Jon super jealous who is away most of the time. To meet, fall in love with and marry.

What if you meet the guy on date two. The show's over?

We had a tragic incident happen here on the Cape today. A 32 year old, eight year veteran of the Yarmouth Police Dept., K9 Officer Sean Gannon, was shot in the head and killed while executing a warrant for a probation violation on the 29 year old suspect. His K9 dog Nero was also shot but is ok. The kicker was the probation violation was for firearms. This asshole has been arraigned, as an adult, 114 times! Tomorrow will be 115. WTF was this guy doing on the street! Unbelievable. The officer was married so please keep his wife and family in your prayers. And say an extra prayer for all our brave men and women in blue who put their lives on the line every day. Thank you.

Oh my good God. That makes my blood boil!

I hope your community looks into exactly how many times he was released and whether that was appropriate. Last time this happened to us in Whittier, turns out the guy was a proposition release, never would have been let out but for the stupid voters voting for "prison reform" I.e. let the dangerous guys out.

You can't have it both ways! You can't just let all these guys run around free, but not want anyone to ever touch a gun again!

Keep the bad guys LOCKED UP and suddenly your problem with guns becomes a whole hell of a lot more manageable. Why on god's green earth no one talks about all the missed opportunities to incarcerate and keep incarcerated so many of these violent shooters is truly beyond my comprehension.

Are you talking about Proposition 47, which of course had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with letting "dangerous guys out?"

&&&

Oh my god! Are you dumb or just stupid? I am referring to AB 109, Prop 47 and 57. I see you have been brainwashed by the propaganda. You're wrong. It absolutely, 100%, has allowed guys out. Even on California's own courts web site they explain, in plain English "it authorizes defendants currently serving sentences for felony offenses that would have qualified as misdemeanors under the proposition to petition courts for resentencing under the new misdemeanor provisions." The LAPD has also spelled it out for the idiots if you still don't understand: https://www.lapd.com/sites/default/files/tbl_apr2017_sandoz.pdf

READ. It absolutely, 100 percent can and does let violent felons OUT.

I'm sure you voted for it. Keith Boyer thanks you for killing him in such a bloody and gruesome way. But by all means, please focus on gun control, the real problem. Perhaps we should ban people who have no idea what they're doing from voting, that's MY idea of gun control.

MikeB said...

If Kate were serious about finding a good match for herself she would be looking for a stable person who had established a life and ties somewhere in her area. She's 43 years old with six (well, five) kids for which she is responsible for at least the next five years. She's not a young, single, free person anymore and simply can't flit off all over the country while raising her children. Those kids need stability at this time of their lives.

This a a transparent attempt at getting TV ratings. TLC will have a casting call for potential dates and you will see a substantial percentage of narcissists and/or struggling actors who want nothing more than to get paid for being on TV. Nobody who is decent and would care for her kids like they were their own is going to respond to this call and she knows it.

MikeB said...

On an unrelated not, the DWTS cast was revealed today. Every one is an athlete and 6 out of 10 have competed in the Olympics.

In a twist the competition will only be four weeks long so I guess we'll have either two episodes per week or multiple eliminations each time.

Obviously current figure skaters Mirai Nagasu and Adam Rippon are going to be the favorites. Tonya Harding comes across as very angry, defensive, and in denial in her interviews about the Nancy Kerrigan incident; I wonder if that will spill over into her interactions with her partner and provide a bunch of drama. Jamie Anderson may be an upset surprise much like Paralympic Snowboarder Amy Purdy was four years ago.

Former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding is with Sasha Farber

Notre Dame basketball player Arike Ogunbowale with Gleb Savchenko

Retired NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is with Lindsay Arnold

Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is with Sharna Burgess

Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon is with Jenna Johnson

Olympic softball player Jennie Finch is with Keo Motsepe

Olympic luger Chris Mazdzer is with Witney Carson

Olympic gold medalist/snowboarder Jamie Anderson is with Artem Chigvintsev

Olympic figure skater Mirai Nagasu is with Alan Bersten

Former MLB player Johnny Damon is with Emma Slater

The Busby husband was dealing with a depression I think during their last season. He was going to be going somewhere for help. I was wondering if it came from the stress of so many kids plus being on tv and they decided to stay off tv and focus on just their family. I guess not. Maybe it took this long to come back while he worked through things.

Right, There’s no problem whatsoever with our education system that requires reform. It’s perfectly Acceptable for there to be huge disparities in outcomes based on socioeconomic status and race. Wrong with the system works for privileged white children, why would anybody want to reform it?

&&&&

Naturally, you completely missed what you were saying, reacting reflexively. Neither of us were indicating we are against school reform, or prison reform for that matter either. If it IS REFORM! What was said, is that something described in nice ways like "school reform" or "prison reform" is often nothing of the sort. I explained that measures that were disguised as nice ways to make prisons better were actually just putting dangerous violent felons back in the communities and has directly caused deaths, and I provided the links to prove it. Bullshit, it's a money grab, and unsuspecting voters who don't know any better and are being mislead are letting this happen. Then Tucker said yes, "school reform" is put through in a similar way. And I agree, what is often disguised as "school reform" is something completely different and usually can also be traced back to money.

Think critically about all these politicians and the measures they want you to vote for. (Though few seem to). Look for ulterior motives, and follow the money, you will usually find that to be the primary motivation. Thanks to excellent work from concerned citizens who would not give up, we finally figured out that all the big pushes to add bike lanes to our streets take away lanes and make our commutes hell is being funded by a big time donor overseas. We all started to wonder when we could find no such stats to back up cries of dangerous roads and bike deaths, or even that but a tiny, tiny fraction of people in LA even ride bikes. So I would also say "road reform" is also all bullshit.

Tucker put school reform in quotes for a reason. She followed the conversation, as you were unable to.

Kate's on the upper right hand corner of the April 23 People magazine. Mariah Carey has the main cover. Here's a link to the cover. The main article is not related to TFW.

I really cannot believe TFW got Coyne to swing her a pic on the cover of People, even if it's only that corner you use to put your used gum in.

I did hear about his poor officer and this is happening entirely too often. Our men and women in blue are fighting battles on all fronts and they need all of our support.
Awful.

I would not want to be a cop right now. Many jurisdictions are struggling to find cops, and that's really terrible. The last couple years before things have at last calmed down this year were disgusting, disgraceful, and outright misleading. What I find funny is people were so quick to call all cops racist, but you can bet your bottom dollar when they need help, they're calling the cops. Pitiful.

Seems like people moved on from that cause of the month and settled into the "me too" thing now, getting bored with let's hate on all the cops. Human beings who like to protest have proven to be a fickle lot.

Well, Carrie Ann says that Kate has no self-awareness, so it stands to reason that Kate isn't aware that she's not complicated!

Lol, she's such a tool. She seems proud of being "complicated", like it's cool to be a many layered onion.

"I'm complicated" is code for I play games and run my own program with or without any regard to you.

I think that she’s still got some sort of contract with TLC and they’ve got to honor it or she will sue.

I don't think that TLC has ANY contractual obligation to K8. Don't forget, she was off their air for nearly 3 years ("10-year anniversary" to the contrary, LOL), and I think she was more than willing to come back on any terms offered. The power is all on their side---and even more so when her ratings are in the toilet--- why should they accept anything less?
******

I fully believe that TLC has a lifetime contract on Kate. She won't/can't do anything that is not related to or sponsored by TLC. I think Jon may still have some obligations which is why he pops up from time to time and mostly to get HER back in the press, but he has managed to sever most ties. I don;t think she will ever fully go away, but it appears that TLC *owns* Kate. And the press/People articles have NOTHING to do with whether Kate Coyne *likes* her. Nothing. It's press/PR/paid for/handshake deals among media outlets. Kate Coyne has little to say in what goes in the mag, she can't just put people in because she *likes* them. It's all media deals. Not sure why people don't understand that's how it works.

Sometime Longtime

Admin (#194), maybe TFW's "I'm complicated" means "I'm a hypocrite and a liar who drives people who try to figure me out crazy." This is a woman who told her children not to hit, but beat them regularly (by her own admission). She's offered half a dozen reasons for filming -- not one of which ever rang true. She filmed a vow renewal, promising her kids "Mommy and Daddy will be together forever," when she'd already decided to dump her husband. She presents herself as the world's biggest dog lover, but when she adopted 2 puppies several years ago, she clearly wasn't interested ("Thanks, Mom!"/ "You're not welcome!"), and actually gave one up. And awn and awn...

I fully believe she doesn't. It would be unprecedented, no lawyer would allow either party to do such a thing. It's not the 50s anymore where you signed on with a studio and that was it forever.

It's not complicated. Don't overthink it. She's already on their roster and has done all the paperwork, there's just a few documents that need to be taken care of to put her fugly mug back on TV each time. Bing, bang, boom. You have three hours a night of prime time to fill. Once in awhile there's going to be an hour or two you can blow on a piddly million or so viewers, just so you don't have to show infomercials instead. Like all networks, TLC is not going to have a slam dunk on every show. They have their major hitters they throw most of their budget at, Little People and the like, and the rest are filler.

If one has enough pull at a magazine or publication one can certainly influence what goes into it. Why do you think so many publications lean one way or the other? Management sees to it they publish the things THEY want to see published and ignore other real stories or news that don't fit their agenda. Such stories could certainly make them money, but they don't want to publish them.

If Kate Gosselin really were just one big money bag for People, you would expect to see more writers other than Kate Coyne writing about her. It is suspicious that Coyne is always the one doing the articles about her, it is suspicious Coyne has on several occasions defended her outside her articles, and it is suspicious that Coyne's articles often have an anti-Jon spin to them. She has a weird love fest with her, and has decided to push her agenda when and where she can. She's a sheeple in a position of power.

And generally, magazines sell ads to advertisers without ever telling them what the content they will be next to will be, because frankly, they often don't know yet. An advertiser may have absolutely no idea his ad is going next to Kate Gosselin until he sees it.

Obviously Coyne can't write about peas and fleece jackets whenever she wants to and expect People to publish them, but if she has enough influence to really push through a story or two about something relevant to the magazine, she will.

Writers do push and pitch their stories on the editors and lobby for covers and so forth, that happens on a daily basis. When you write for people you're writing to get that cover, and you do what you can to convince your editors your story is the one for it.

Love the lecture about thinking critically from someone who regurgitates Fox News talking points as if they were insightful words of wisdom.

&&&

That's interesting, because I don't watch Fox News and never have. I've tuned in once in a blue moon for Megan Kelly's interview with the Duggars and such, but that's it. I hate talking heads formats and the misinformed people who are the heads, and that's what most of these cable news things seem to be. And, I don't have much time to watch TV, so when I do, I'm usually watching an episode or two of streaming and that's all I have time for. I don't have a problem with people who watch cable news, I even did an internship at CNN in college, but it's not how I choose to get my information.

Since you asked, I get the bulk of my news from a variety of print publications (yes many, gasp, even left-leaning ones!) and a huge chunk from AM radio and podcasts as I spend more than an hour a day in my car.

Don't even bother to refute my points, just throw out some random and totally false accusation. Typical liberal.

About Kate Coyne -- I agree 100% with Admin, she is more powerful than the sheep give her credit for. Why do I say that, well because on the ID channel the program People Investigates, she was once on there as one of the commentators and you don't get into those scenarios if you have no power at all. Even though I love those investigation programs, if I am watching People Investigates and she is on I switch the channel instantly. Anyone who has their head that far up someone's a** is not worth watching.
