Jon has found Collin, and Hannah is with him full time

In a very unexpected sextuplets birthday post, Jon wrote on Instagram that he and Hannah visited Collin for his belated birthday (Jon posted a few days ago on Hannah's birthday that he now has her every day and night). Collin has been missing for two years, and Kate has offered little explanation why, other than he is getting treatment.


A post shared by Jon Gosselin (@jongosselin1) on

Jon also commented:

mandapanda184 @jongosselin1 Oh good. So the reports that Kate shipped him somewhere without letting you know where, aren't true?
jongosselin1 @mandapanda184 that’s true but I found him

Totally agree Milo has a lot of nerve running to TFW's Instagram as if she's tattling on Jon. Hey, Milo, he's JON's kid too!! I'm flipping both you and TFW the bird right now.

&&&

It's very immature. If Kate wants to know when and where Jon is having contact with Collin she can ask him like a big girl or go to the courts and ask. Milo is such an interloper and tattler. It's none of your business, Milo.

I'm also sure she is assuming Jon may be doing something wrong here. No way no how is he, so she just looks stupid at this point.

I'm really surprised this hasn't turned into a penelope one-upper battle between Kate and Jon. I didn't expect Kate to have that much self control.

Formerly Duped said...

OK, these aren't our business but here I go: When did Jon find him and see Collin? How is he really doing? Are Jon and Hannah the only family who see him? Is he located near home? Will he be discharged to Jon fairly soon? What will TFW do when she sees this?

I am so pleased for Collin and for Jon. I just hope this place has helped Collin- that's a long time to be institutionalized. He looks very different than the ghost of a boy we last saw on the Game Show episode.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I think Jon could be more proactive. I'm happy for Collin if his dad does see him and for Hannah but I think it was H's own initiative that her won her freedom.

&&&

We're kind of past that point where Jon could have laid down the law and got fair time with his kids. A lot of people were on board and supportive of him standing strong on this issue for the longest time and for whatever various reasons it never really go to the best place. At their age, even if you could get the courts to give you something, if that kid doesn't want to go they're not going and you're going to make it hell on earth to try time to force it. So it really is going to need to come from the kids at this point and be fully consensual from them for time with Jon to work--and the same with Kate, if Hannah won't consent to time with Kate it ain't happening. Cuts both ways, Kate.

And honestly, I'm feeling pretty good about that. These kids aren't stupid, and it's not going to take all that much for some or all of them to realize Kate is a piece of work and be done with that. It's a matter of their brains developing and their emotional intelligence falling into place. They'll get there. It's the little things, like a delicious cheese pizza and a cake for your birthday, that help build trust again between kids and parents that your mother tried to sabotage.

Someone else actually notified TFW in a comment before Milo did, and then another person even posted a link to Jon's IG (!). Then, someone else replied to one of them and to Milo:


jeska5589 Jon just posted a picture of Collin and Hannah (celebrating their birthday) about an hour ago. Just so you know, @kateplusmy8

susankaywiske https://www.instagram.com/p/BisYHEtAFOl/?taken-by=jongosselin1

miloandjack2016 Well we all have been so concerned and hoping COLLIN was healthy, improving and being successful. Jon and Hannah apparently just visited him and posted an IG pic of a smiling Collin. #JustSoYouKnow @Kateplusmy8

elviswildwood @jeska5589 he’s his father!! .. you’re actually ratting him out to the woman who has made a living off her kids?!!wow!!...

elviswildwood @miloandjack2016 and you as usual sucking up to kate.. ( but of course you go running right to jons page) ... nothing has changed!!... get a life milo!!.... she’s alienated all those kids from Jon but how interesting Hannah won’t be bullied by her ....

Notice Jon said he FOUND him. So It doesn’t sound like Kate told Jon voluntarily. Good for Jon for not letting that viper stand in his way of reuniting with his son

Former Lurker said...

jeska5589 Was it a secret? Jon posted the picture on his PUBLIC account and Kate has a right to know.

These sheeple are unbelievable. They're so worried that TFW has a right to know what Jon posts on his IG, but didn't care that JON had a right to know where the hell his son has been for over two years!

Oh that's flipping funny, because JON had a right to know where he was, and Kate wouldn't tell him! He found out some other way, whatever way that was. Now she wants to know when, where, how Jon sees his child? That's rich.

I don't disagree that both parents should know where their kids are when they are with the other parent but my f-ing god, Kate can call up Jon herself if she wants to know where her kids are. Why do the fans feel is ANY of their concern or that Kate can't handle this without some stranger's meddling? They act like she's helpless.

They're all beaming! So nice to see this photo. Thank you Jon. My heart soars.

Suck it, Kate.

Jamesvader1194 said...

@Admin Im sure milo is upset because of the fact that Jon was the first to actually give people an update on how Collin is doing and no,hes not exposing anything other then that he celebrated his birthday with him.No one on his IG is asking for details and if they are,jon isn't saying anything fully.If Kate would stop playing games with her fans and actually at least tell them he's still getting help,people would of stop asking her about it.We'll see if Kate finally updates her fans about C.

I actually did a double-take when I first saw it on Jon's page, I couldn't BELIEVE it was really Collin & was just so thrilled for the 3 of them! They all look so happy. Screw you Kate!

She's down to Kate Plus 6. Yeah I imagine fans are sweating that.

Earlier in the comments, someone named Jeska who appears to be a hate worshipper, was the first to “alert” k to the pic , saying “just so you know” so I *think milo hashtagged the #justsomyouknow directing it toward jeska.

She doesn't even need to do that. I don't have an IG account. I simply bookmarked the link for her IG and for Jon's IG, and I check them out every now and then.

TFW could simply look at Jon's IG every so often, and I'm quite sure that she does do that. Just like I'm fairly certain she's read every word on this blog for years. There's no way a narcissist could ever resist that.

Wowser said...

I’m betting her dating show never sees the light of day. Especially after this latest development. If Kate HAD seen Collin over the last 2 years, she would have posted a picture for all the fans inquiring about him. Now it’s out there that Jon basically has 2 of the kids. Her whole “my kids just don’t want me to be alone” Shpeel is bullshit. SHE knows she’s on her way quickly to being alone and is losing her chance to still be on tv making money under her brand of being the lonely hardworking mommy. She’s going to suck the TLC teat til it’s dry, then ride off into the sunset with skeeve -with one quick stop off at Jon’s house to drop off any remaining kids she has left

Former Lurker said...

So, shall we place bets on whether TFW is calling her buddy Kate Coyne at People Magazine to "set the record straight"?

JR said...

I can’t even imagine her rage right now...she has no control over this and we know how kate handles that....she doesn’t....her head is probably ready to blow....I wonder how many bottles of wine it will take to make this go away

Wowser said...

Jon definitely seems to have found his spine and some confidence. Hopefully, he will “set the record straight” with rebuttals to whatever BS tfw tries to spin out of her ass through all of her toadies like Katie coyne. I’m hoping her next acting stint is becoming an untouchable. One can only hope.

I agree. TLC better think twice about this. The fans have always cared more about the kids than about TFW. They've been concerned for Collin these last few years and now with this development there will surely be questions about Collin in any publicity interviews TFW does to sell the new show this fall. I doubt TLC wants that.

I wonder what her Mother's Day foot massage and breakfast will look like tomorrow with only 5 kids left to cater to her whims. Cara has been done with that for years, Mady is a suck up to get what she wants and the others are just there until they figure things out. I can imagine what Hannah goes through when she sees Kate and the bus stop run must be horrendous. I can hear the screams now since Kate found out that Jon not only knows where Collin is, but he and Hannah had a birthday celebration with him. Jon must have had a few visits with him already. Happy Day!!!

Just compare the two birthday pictures. K's with a stack of "things" wrapped as birthday gifts. Jon's with Collin and Hannah with simple pizza and cake and all three beaming with the pleasure of being each others company.

I often think of the time Kate brushed aside Collin's gift of the bear and cub, explaining as he did that it represented the two of them; she even referred to it as weird and it breaks my heart.

I'm so happy for Collin, wherever he is, that he knows his Dad loves him, I know Jon loves him, but it warms my heart that Collin knows too.

That will be the next cover of People Magazine courtesy of Coyne. I can imagine Kate saying to Coyne, "We can not let him get the upper hand. We have to stick to the bad father rap we've been bleating for almost ten years."

Like we've said, she's as big of a narcissist as Kate. Even when Kate's own fans have shown a great deal of concern for him, she has not. Nothing, nada. And like you said she pretends everything is fine, and I would go so far as to say she acts like oh it always was 7 kids. 8, what do you mean? Like, she erased the child! She shifts her "concern" to fit the narrative.

Hey Milo, we and many of the fans have been concerned from day one and you were never part of that, so it's way too late now.

This is wonderful also since Jon and Collin haven't seen each other for at least 4 years, maybe even longer. I hope these visits help to heal him. I wonder if Hannah spilled the beans or gave Jon ideas as to where Collin was, niot that is is any of our business.

Right true and that's her prerogative to look at it if she wants. I've always felt like the fans make her look like a helpless dolt who doesn't know how to handle Jon and what he's up to so they have to coach her and snitch for her.

I mean, she probably is a helpless dolt with this situation, but don't make her LOOK like one!

Layla said...

Oh no, what does this do to Milo's mental picture of Kate with 8 teenagers under her roof? Hannah is obviously with Jon, and Collin is not home. And there's nothing Kate can do about it. The older the kids get, the less control she has over them. No wonder TLC isn't filming K+8 episodes. Now it's only 6, and in October two of those 6 will be adults and will require their own contracts (and Cara can't be forced to sign or to film) Next year there will only be 4--if none of the other tups defect to Jon. The days of selling her kids' childhoods seem to be over, finally. All she has left is this dating show, and it's going to be an embarrassment for her and for TLC. I saw it described as a docu-series or something like that. WTH is that supposed to mean? Docu-anything is an informative show, in my opinion. This is far from informative. I'm just going to call it a big, fat failure. I don't even have to wait to see the ratings, I already know what it will be. BFF.

Collin looks really happy! He has a real smile instead of that empty, vacant, over-medicated look he had before Kate shipped him off. I think when he's ready to transition out of the facility, he will have a good, strong, supportive relationship with Jon and Hannah, and a place to call home with them. I wonder how long Jon has been visiting him. If he posted about C in 2014, it's very likely he has been visiting and there's nothing Kate could do about it. And I doubt that Jon would have posted a picture without C's approval. I'm just so happy to see C have a special day. He must have been thrilled. And Hannah was there to spend time with her brother and show him her support. C has family there to love him and show him support, and that will make all the difference as he matures.

NJGal51 said...

This just didn’t happen overnight and Jon didn’t just waltz in there today with a cake and pizza. He had to have been seeing Collin for a while now and building up his trust and working for what’s best for Collin. The doctors and counselors must agree that this relationship is good for Collin because they allowed this to happen. Good for everyone involved and poor shmoopie isn’t going to be able to put her spin on this because a picture is worth a thousand words.

Perhaps he has known for some time, and Kate knows that he has known for some time. This is a current photo, but his IG doesn't say that he just now found him.

jeska5589 If Collin is in treatment he has a right to privacy. Posting photos of him is not in his best interest, and that is why KATE is protecting his privacy. Jon is only thinking of himself, if he was thinking of Collin he'd want to protect him right now, not put him on display so that JON can get some attention. Can't you see that?

Oh for cripe sake. Kate has exploited this situation to no end and exploited this child since he was a toddler, even making money off of his plight in People. Don't give me this nonsense.

And how does this sheeple know Kate's reasons for not posting photos of him is protecting his privacy? Kate is the reason we even know he's in a facility. She told us so in a big reveal in a magazine. She didn't seem concerned about privacy then Just as likely, Kate's reasons for not posting photos could be:
1. the service providers have identified his exploitation at her hand to be detrimental to him and instructed her no more photos and video. This declaration might not necessarily apply to all people, because Collin may only associate feeling negative about photos and videos with Kate, hence he may have no problem with others taking and posting photos.
2. Collin himself has asked her not to share photos for his reasons
3. she doesn't see Collin (I vote this one)
4. she sees him but is "punishing" Collin for not being well mentally by refusing to share him like she does the other kids (this plays a role too, I think)
4. TLC has asked her not to post photos because it's bad PR but has no control over Jon because he's not on payroll

Frankly I don't know which one it is, though I have my suspicions, but for the sheeple to state as fact she doesn't post because of "his privacy" is not a fact, it's speculation, and there are many other reasons that are out there for her silence that could be equally true.

Also, I sense Jon is just trying to be a normal parent on social media who proudly posts pics of their kids now and again for grandparents, friends and coworkers to gush over. This is normal behavior and if it's exploitive, than so is every other parent who does it. And, fans and non-fans alike have said for literally years now most would fully support Kate posting some limited updates on Collin because after all she put it out there, a ton of people fans and non-fans alike got very concerned, and never giving us any more follow up after that is rather cruel.

Kate held his unusual situation out as a carrot, a tease, made money off t, and then never followed up. Now not only did she exploit Collin, but she exploited Collin's own fans and supporters including us. That's really beyond sick. Jon simply did what we have been asking Kate for for years, provided an appropriate and restrained update to a very concerning situation. Funny, it just didn't occur to me to ask JON for it! A fan of Collin's here passed away still worried for his little soul because Kate couldn't be bothered to set anyone at ease, so I hope Kate feels happy about her choices over the past two years. Tool.

Sad but true said...

Layla said... 45

Collin didn't leave until mid-2016 or thereabouts. The comment was left on an IG picture first posted in 2014, but someone above notes that the comment by Jon was posted sometime during or after the Winter Olympics, so that's 2-3 months ago, at least. Perhaps the same custody hearing(s) regarding Hannah also dealt with the issue of Collin? We may never know, but it is really wonderful to see some happy Gosselins for a change.

Yeah, I saw "docu-series" as well. Is this TLC's new term for "reality" TV? Nothing will be further from the truth. I also have serious doubts this will ever see the light of day.

PatK said...

So good to see the picture of Jon, Hannah and Collin!

It's a damn shame Kate couldn't control everything like she assumed she could. Oh, that Karma.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

To that superfan who slammed Jon, I'd like to use her own words to ask why TFW filmed her children during an extremely contentious divorce:

"If TFW was thinking about her 8 kids, she'd want to protect them, not put them on display so that she could get some attention. Can't you see that?"

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Sad but true (#53), the only way they could pull that off as a docu-series would be to use a hidden camera and not let TFW know she was being filmed. Once she sees that red light, she's hee-hawing to the camera, and nothing remotely sincere comes out of her mouth.

That's what made that snotty moment of candor from her in the silver dress -- when she was supposed to interact with the fans after her interview -- so entertaining. Her comment made it clear she'd rather face a firing squad than to have to mingle with the mediocre.

Jillygee said...

Lorrie said...

I am so happy to see that Collin seems to be doing okay - his beaming smile melts my heart! If I'm not mistaken, before he was shipped away, he was one of the tups who wouldn't see Jon. I'm sad it had to take something this drastic to show Collin how much his father loves him, but so thrilled he's safe and that he got to spend his birthday with a loving parent and one of his sisters. You did good, Jon!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

PatK (#54), remember when TFW said she didn't understand why Jon thought he should have any say in how the kids were raised? He was the one person she couldn't make disappear completely. His very existence infuriates her. And as I've said before, I think the boys particularly incur her wrath because she "sees" Jon in them physically.

Mel said...

I'm just glad that C is alive and happy. I actually had some concern that he was no longer with us.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I hope Robert Hoffman knows Jon has seen C. He was particularly fond of the boy.

Gigi Be said...

Remember a few yrs back, when Kate did an interview. The interviewer asked Kate if Jon knew where C was. She answered no, while the most devious smirk came through across her lips?. She was SO proud of herself for successfully keeping Jon in the dark all that time. And she was SO intent in keeping C away from his father. She really thought she was in control. But goes around, comes around. Karma has come a’knockin at her door. Pay up b&tch

Layla said...

Kate protecting C's privacy? Does that poster know just how moronic that statement is? C was struggling for a long time, and that is evident by watching clips of the show. He was not well, yet Kate still forced him to work and to share responsibility for providing for the family. That kind of burden on such a young boy has to be overwhelming, in addition to his other issues. When she finally had him institutionalized, she sold the story to People magazine rather than allow him privacy. If anyone asked she could have said it wasn't in C's best interest to film him, but she wanted to make money off his struggle, so his privacy went right out the window. She sold every shred of her kids' privacy, beginning before they were even born, and she will never stop until she no longer has the ability to do so.

Kate and her fans are all in a tizzy because Jon has made it clear that Hannah is with him and he is seeing Collin. They would prefer to think that he's a deadbeat womanizer who doesn't care about his kids and they don't even want to see him. Kate, of course, would also prefer that everyone believe that. Her preferred persona--that of an exhausted, put-upon single mother struggling to cope with 8 kids all alone--is blown out of the water. It's all downhill from here. Hannah seems to have a strong will and a mind of her own. Someday she's going to have a lot to say.

Old poster said...

It would be interesting to know how many times Kate and the kids visit Colin. Did they visit for his birthday? Holidays?
Jon’s sharing pics of himself and Hannah, sharing custody news, and the picture of Colin had to have sent Kate into a hell-raising manic episode. And he did it on Mother’s Day weekend, which probably absolutely infuriated her.
I wonder... if Colin’s health providers determined Kate was the root of his issues, her visits are prohibited or supervised.
Hopefully Colin will be able to go home for good soon— to Jon!
I bet it chaps Kate’s ass that Hannah would rather live in a mediocre house instead of the mine-all- mansion with the pool, deck for-the-kids, and dogs.
And while I’m rambling, I wonder if Hannah got an iPhone too? I can’t see Kate paying for a $800phone for a kid that doesn’t live with her.
Colin never got braces. I guess he didn’t know how to help her.
Last thought—- is Kate paying child support for Hannah?

Anonymous said...

Just saw Jon's photo this morning! What a wonderful surprise. I hope Jon knows how many of us see through Kate's manipulations and greed and see Jon as a truly sincere, authentic and loving parent. Jon, we are impressed with you (and Hannah too! such a free thinker).

The next child I would worry about is Leah. She must be lost without her soulmate Hannah. {probably she is being grilled by TFW about Hannah, and what she knows about Hannah's comments to a GAL.) The boys and twins have one another and Alexis has always been a loner, close to the animals too.

I do hope Collin goes home to Jon soon. I'm sure his issues must be resolved or controlled by now and ongoing outpatient therapy/schooling an option. JMO.

I’m sure TFW’s fans (waving at Milo) will say that Jon only did it so that he could sell the story because he needs the money. The die hard fans, for the most part, are just like TFW and only see the money side of anything. I’m glad to see that some of the die hards either made a nice comment or “liked” Jon’s post. Good for them.

-----

Without knowing what his issues are or were, it's impossible for anyone, other than those treating him, to know if they are resolved and if he is now "cured" and ready to come home. It's good to see Jon and Hannah visiting him and that he looks happy, but it can't be assumed that he is ready to go home. It's very encouraging that Jon has been allowed visitation.

Remember the Mother's Day breakfast J&K+8 episode, when she said Mother's Day should come once a month? Little did we realize then how much help she actually had.

No Mother's Day post yet but it's a wonder she hasn't removed the recent replies on the birthday cake Instagram - not very complimentary.

Formerly Duped said...

I don't think Collin has/had braces but it is hard to tell. I just think he would be doing better by now, 2 1/2 years later but who knows what his issues are.I would hope it is the goal to transition him home, maybe weekends first , especially if he is so close to home. But there is so much we don't know and that's fine.So I agree, Blowing, just hoping! As long as he is ok and is seeing family now. Maybe Jon's mother may visit, and others?

What are the chances of this new Kate Date ever seeing the light of day?

jamesvader1194 said...

@Layla Exactly!Had jon not posted this picture,the fans would be pushing the narrative that Collin doesn't want to see his father.They're only upset because it destroyed the whole"jon doesn't care about his kids."and Kate is doing it all alone.@Formerly Duped if i remember correctly jon posted a picture with him and his brothers 2 or 3 years ago.I'm certain that he still has contact with them.

Over In TFW's County said...

From Radar...

"They are all smiling with a birthday cake and pie on a table beside them. Jon has his hands on Collin’s shoulders with Hannah standing beside them. "

A pie? It looks like pizza. Do they still call it pizza pie? :)

A source says the facility is about two hours from their home. If so, then it's not Bethany, which is only about 15 minutes from Wernersville.

Permanent Name in Blue said...

As soon as I saw the photo (and it sure did put a smile on my face!) I thought: that bitch will now try to get Collin back home so Jon can't see him at all. Next move, bet you a dollar!

But then I thought that the state probably placed him there for some real or perceived behavior that Kart reported. I think it must have been involuntary placement beyond her control because she would never have voluntarily let him go to strangers where he could squeal on her treatment of the kids. Just my OPINION, you understand.

Sadly, I think he might have acted out and hurt a sibling in addition to the state finding out about her treatment of him. I think that this whole time he has been in placement she has had absolutely no control over what's happening where he is concerned. Just my OPINION, you understand....

Hopefully, the time spent there will have helped his "anger issues" and he can go home to Jon and Hannah.

And BTW, I can see a scenario where his 'anger issues' were directly related to his witch of a gestational carrier. She is not a mother by any stretch.

Let's see kart try to explain this!

Permanent Name in Blue said...

Over and OUt, 79:

I think the show will not be shown. Too much bad publicity surrounding her.

Permanent Name in Blue said...

I think Jon has a good chance to get custody of Collin.

1. Collin was pulled from kart's home for a valid reason and I think the state was involved.
2. If he was pulled for valid reasons, going back to her home could be counterproductive.
3. She may not want him home.
4. Most importantly: Collin is old enough to have an opinion and I would bet money (just and expression, folks) that he would choose Jon over kart.

I still think, though, that now kart is going to try to get him back so Jon can't have him. Witch.

I read the ROL article, and the comments are all scathing with regards to Kate. Only one positive comment, the usual "Jon abandoned the kids so he could chase women" and "Kate has had to do it all by herself".

I think TLC will do the dating show. They may push it farther off in the distant future, but they will do it. And it will be a spectacular failure, which will be so entertaining for all of us!

Somehow I wouldn't be surprised if Kate jumped in her car and sped to the facility where C is being treated so she could post her own picture with him. Or perhaps she's working the phones, interrupting one lawyer after another from their Mother's Day celebrations to ask, "Can we sue?".

I really hope they never even film that idiotic "Khate Plus Her Fake Date" show. This witch does not deserve one more second of attention nor one more dime of easy money.

As far as Collin, I had similar thoughts about photos with him. Now that Jon has posted a pic with him, I bet TFW will visit him and post one also. She'll probably try to convince her sheeple that she visits him regularly. She'll have to one-up Jon, as usual.

NJGal51 said...

Permanent Name in Blue @ 83 - I tend to agree with you and think that he may have been removed from the home. My OPINION is that he may have had enough and gone after TFW which would have scared the shit out of her. Wasn’t there an article somewhere that said he was spilling his guts to the counselors about his treatment under TFW? It may not be in his best interest to be placed back in her house (not a home). She doesn’t know how to handle the damage control for Jon’s last two posts and if she’s not filming, Steve may not be around to advise her. If she does post for Mother’s Day she’d better buy more bots to comment and “like” her post so that she can try and convince everyone that people like her more than Jon.

Collin didn't leave until mid-2016 or thereabouts. The comment was left on an IG picture first posted in 2014, but someone above notes that the comment by Jon was posted sometime during or after the Winter Olympics, so that's 2-3 months ago, at least. Perhaps the same custody hearing(s) regarding Hannah also dealt with the issue of Collin? We may never know, but it is really wonderful to see some happy Gosselins for a change.

&&&&&&&&&&&

I just want to point out that Jon's comment about the Olympics was actually his caption when he originally posted the skating pic in February of 2014. What appears more recent is his conversation in the comment with someone because the person mentions Collin being gone for two years, which means that conversation must have been posted some time in the last several months (Collin has been gone since early 2016, if I recall correctly).

This is from an article Nov. 2016. Sounds like she didn't have a choice, whether that be in keeping him home and trying other stuff or no choice as in forced to send him. No one knows though.

"The 41-year-old reality star insisted on Monday's episode of Good Morning America that enrolling 12-year-old Collin in a live-in learning facility was a "necessary" decision.
"It was not even really a choice. It was on the advice of his doctors, and it had to happen."

Mel said (92)... "I find it alarming at how thin he looked last time he was on TV. He looks so much healthier now."

______________________________________________________

When my nephew was on medication for ADHD, he completely lost his appetite along with his spirit. He became a shadow of his former self, very quiet, very thin, very unassuming. Luckily his mom realized the harm the medication was doing to him, and stopped giving it to him. Almost overnight, my nephew began to eat again and regained his cute (and, yes, boisterous) personality.

During the quiz night episode, Collin reminded me a lot of my nephew -- painfully thin, sad looking, quiet and I don't know, just -- defeated.

Please understand, I would never presume that ALL ADHD medication is bad for ALL children. That was just the experience my sister and her son had. Moreover, I don't even know if Collin was taking or has ever taken ADHD medication. However, I do agree with Mel that Collin appears far healthier (and happier) now than he did a few years ago.

Jon's pic is covered by the Daily Mail:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5724913/Kate-Gosselins-ex-Jon-shares-rare-photo-son-Collin-daughter-Hannah-14th-birthday.html

Kate Gosselin's ex Jon shares rare photo with son Collin and daughter Hannah for their 14th birthday

He claims his ex and former reality co-star is denying him visitation rights to their eight children.

But Jon Gosselin of Jon And Kate Plus 8 Fame appeared to be enjoying some quality time with son Colin and daughter Hannah on Sunday.

The DJ and ex husband of Kate Gosselin, 41, looked like a proud papa as he held his son's shoulders in a photo captioned: 'Glad I could celebrate my son Collin’s 14th birthday with him and his sister!'

Of course it wouldn't be a party with out some cake and pizza, as well as the company of fellow sextuplet Hannah, all seen in the photo.

Collin made the most of his time with family, as the young one is currently enrolled in a program away from home for children with special needs, according to People.

Jon and ex-wife Kate Gosselin share eight offspring. In addition to 17-year-old twins Mady and Cara, they parent sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Leah and Joel.

On Thursday the DJ and daughter Hannah spent some one-on-one time together, meeting up for a lovely father/daughter breakfast in Reading, Pennsylvania.

The reality TV star grins happily in the sweet pic with Hannah, one of the sextuplets he shares with his ex wife of ten years.

The sweet father-daughter snap is captioned 'Happy Birthday Hannah!!! 14 already. Bday breakfast with my daughter before the bus stop!!!'

He also posted a throwback snap of the rest of six birthday kids, in a post captioned 'Happy 14th Birthday to Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin!!! I can’t believe it’s been this long!!! Whew that when fast!!! Daddy loves you all very much!!!'

There's more to the article, and more pics. It rehashes the old People Magazine story and the issues with M & C.

Medication can have all sorts of different side effects. That's why it's important both to explore alternatives to meds as well as to keep a close eye on any prescribed meds and frequently reassess them. No child should have to suffer through uncomfortable side effects, no med is worth that.

Yes, yes, yes and yes.

I've always thought he could have been taken by the state. The school is a mandatory reporter and they easily could have involved social services.

And if that's the case none of this is going to be up to Kate, it's going to be up to other people. And if those people decide the trajectory we are on here is going to involve Jon, there's absolutely nothing she can do about it.

I don't think it occurred to her once he was out of the home that this thing could turn toward JON reunifying with him instead of her. She wouldn't let such a scenario enter her head, because that's just Kate.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

&&&

To this day I can't stand that comment. She's an idiot. Being CONCERNED about a child's development, struggles, mental health issues, heartaches, etc., does not mean you are devaluing them or judging them in any way. And that really speaks volumes about her, because she's essentially saying if you say my child is struggling with something you are basically saying something is wrong with him, he's not perfect.

No Kate, that's how YOU see it, not everybody else. A child is not a defective product you return to the manufacturer.

She passed away around the holidays but I don't think we found out here officially until recently. A few weeks prior to her passing she had emailed me mentioning she had an infection that she was struggling to heal. The days sure feel long on the porch without her.

I haven’t followed the family for a while, but felt sorry for Jon and the way he was treated. I’m glad he has rekindled relationships with some of his children. However, I remain curious what happened to cause what some fans considered to be “Kate’s favorite child” to turn on her. Equally, Alexis and Kara used to be so close to Jon. What happened? I look forward to hearing the kids’ side of the story some day. They’re the ones who really matter.

I’m betting her dating show never sees the light of day. Especially after this latest development. If Kate HAD seen Collin over the last 2 years, she would have posted a picture for all the fans inquiring about him. Now it’s out there that Jon basically has 2 of the kids. Her whole “my kids just don’t want me to be alone” Shpeel is bullshit.
*************
This really makes Kate look like sh&t, not that she needed any help.
For 2 years, she's been evasive about Collin and not ONCE posted a photo which would show she's remembered him on his birthdayS and holidays. Not ONCE.
Now, we see Jon has been there for his bday, made the day special and what do we know about Kate? Oh, right, she filmed the other 5 getting the "best party ever" without Collin. Not even a nod to sharing their birthday with him, or seeing him or even speaking to him.
Truly, Kate looks awful right now and to yammer on about how lonely she is when her son has been away from his home and family for 2 years is beyond selfish, thoughtless and uncaring.
What a PR disaster for TLC.
Their "star" is busy filming fake dates for her poor, lonely self and her ex is with her son, whom she sent away without telling him and purposefully denied Jon the information about where he was, until his relentless efforts paid off and he found Collin.
Dad, hero. Kate, zero.

I think if the kids want to share what happened they should and I'd be interested. If they don't want to I think that should be respected. Time will tell.

But I'll say this, it was obvious Kate was really holding onto some of these kids with an iron fist against Jon, and Hannah was her favorite, so she may very well have held on even tighter to her. And as the saying goes if you pull the reins too tight they'll just struggle and break them. That kind of overcompensation with kids causes many kids to, when they begin to think for themselves as they get older, rebel.

Admin (#111), and speaking of value judgments, TFW clearly lied when she said all the kids were at the top of their class, and incredibly well adjusted, and that strangers always commented on how well behaved they were. She was in denial about her son's issues...so much so that when she finally pulled her head out of her butt, the decision was out of her hands and he was placed in a doctor's care.

She was afraid to acknowledge C's problems because she thought they'd reflect badly on HER. No one would've blamed his issues on her had she gotten him the help he needed. Heck, she would've been applauded for that choice.

Bingo. I do think she was terrified his issues would reflect on her, and that's where I think that tool knows exactly how damaging filming has been for her children and how many times she put filming above HIS needs, but if she faced up to his issues, she would have had to face up to her own shortcomings with him. I agree she would have emerged the hero if she 1. stopped filming for him and 2. got him help.

Of course she had to talk about it eventually because she wanted to keep filming and would have to disclose it somehow, so she got a good PR coach to help her frame it and let it rip. But that was only because she had no choice but to.

NJGal51 said...

Jon won this round. He posted pictures of himself with Hannah and then a picture with both Hannah and Collin. Nothing over the top, just a loving dad with his kids and simple captions to go with it. On the other hand, TFW waxed poetic about how 14 years ago, almost to the minute, yadda, yadda, yadda, #theyearoftheiphone along with pictures of a cake, a pile of presents and a dog opening one of the presents. Also, she went on and on about how she makes this cake for them every year and how kids have requested that she send it to them at college if they’re not home for their birthday. I wonder if she ever made, a delivered, this most requested cake to Collin. Nope, because if she had she would have crowed about it from the rooftops. She, and only she, makes herself look like a fool.

And again, she would never have voluntarily sent him away because then her parenting techniques would be open for everyone at the place to learn. I imagine Collin sang like a canary once he got away from her.

And that may also be the reason she wouldn't tell Jon where he was. Collin would tell his dad what had been going on.

In years to come, we will likely be horrified by the kids accounts and interviews.

And my earlier comments about kart rushing up there to get him back so Jon can't see him? I have changed my mind. .. I think she may not be allowed up there to see him...

Wow, what just one little understated Happy Birthday photo of dad with kids has unleashed! I am so glad for collin that his dad is visiting him, and hopefully can get custody of him and bring him home with hannah.

Truly, Kate looks awful right now and to yammer on about how lonely she is when her son has been away from his home and family for 2 years is beyond selfish, thoughtless and uncaring.

====

Kate's always looked awful because, well, she IS awful, but this has put the icing on the awful cake. Shame on her for hiding him from his own father. That is the epitome of parental alienation. If she comes out of this shitpile smelling like a rose again there is something very wrong with the world.

Permanent Name in Blue said...

Another reason i think this was an involuntary placement.... who here thinks she would spend "her" money on a "special" school for the child she always said defied her at every turn? I sure don't. ... maybe she does have to pay but it could be court ordered that she pays. Another reason she might be so closed lipped. Someone or some entity told HER what to do, and she had no choice...

I can NOT wait to hear how she spins this.....

Permanent Name in Blue said...

I dont have twitter... has she responded at all?

FlimsyFlamsy said...

The only time I've ever seen TFW's face lit up the way Jon's is is when she's ALONE in the spotlight. She NEVER shows pure joy in the presence of her children.

Anonymous said...

Why has People not picked up on this story? Hopefully they will...but it makes me wonder why they seemingly are trying to control the narrative for Kate's benefit. Jon did nothing remotely "wrong" here. He posted a lovely birthday picture of his children. There is no invasion of privacy. Kate is the one who disclosed Collin's problems to People etc. so she could keep filming. So really what is Kate upset about? Proudly showing a photo of your child who may have some problems could only help that child's self esteem. Kate's the one who is hiding him away as though there is shame associated with having problems (which of course we all have).

jeska5589 If Collin is in treatment he has a right to privacy. Posting photos of him is not in his best interest, and that is why KATE is protecting his privacy.

&&&

Oh for cripe sake. Kate has exploited this situation to no end and exploited this child since he was a toddler, even making money off of his plight in People. Don't give me this nonsense.
^^^^^^^^^^
The sheep are too stupid to get that taking a photo of someone in a hospital or treatment facility isn't a HIPAA violation, which is what I think the sheep is trying to pin on Jon.
Kate has already said that Collin is in treatment, so his "privacy" is already shot to shit. Kate has described more about Collin's problems than Jon ever has.
Being in a treatment facility isn't the same as being in a witness protection program. Cripes.

I bet dollars to donuts that Kate rarely saw Collin and never took his birthday or any other celebration to him.

All is well. Just took a break after seeing Kate got a dating show.
It eases my mind greatly to see that Jon has Hannah (no more playing Stretch Armstrong with a child) and they both are visiting Collin.
I'm so glad Jon decided to post that photo. It was perfect. He really let the picture do the talking, as opposed to his loquacious ex-wife.

JR said...

@134....Kate’s upset because she wants total control over those kids and if she doesn’t feel she has that her head explodes...in my opinion he made a total ass out of her and she looks like the bitch that she actually is...her goal in life is to minimize his role as a father and now she feels he took her narrative away....something I don’t think she’ll stand for ...the kids are getting older and she’s losing her grip in them...omg I hope she’s on meds!

"They are all smiling with a birthday cake and pie on a table beside them. Jon has his hands on Collin’s shoulders with Hannah standing beside them. "

A pie? It looks like pizza. Do they still call it pizza pie? :)
^^^^^^^^^
I thought maybe Jon brought Collin a tomato pie, but it looks like a pizza.
I love that he got his own cake. Really makes me tear up knowing that Jon is there for him. I've pictured Collin alone on his birthdays and holidays, and it's heart breaking.

JR said...

It’s over...filming is over for them...they are basically living separate lives already with the girls going to college and the other two living somewhere else...and she knows it’s over...that’s why the dating show which in my opinion when TLC sees how bad it is won’t see the light of day...remember Twist of Kate?? She cannot carry a show...this is pure hell for her

Tucker's Mom said...

This photo and (I assume) recent events have shown that Kate's narrative is total and utter bullshit.
Jon knowing where Collin was placed and having access to him was NEVER a bad thing and Jon would never do anything to jeopardize or hurt Collin if indeed he was in the loop.
Nothing bad has happened as a result. In fact, it looks healthy and happy to me.
So, this notion that Kate was being some "Mama Bear" protecting her child from his evil, dimwitted father can be seen for what it was; a power play and punishment.

Collin possibly refused to see his mother. After all, he reported her abuse to his counselors. It was inevitable that once the kids reached an age where they could express their preferences things would change and there's nothing Kate could do about it. It would be up to a judge.

Lorrie said...

Jon really put the kibosh on what was sure to be another "look at meee, look what my adoring children did for me, I'm so exhausted, look at meee" Mother's Day post. She probably had it all crafted days ago, ready to post on Instagram. I just love how the tables have suddenly turned. Jon's firmly in control, and Kate looks the fool. Hopefully, there'll be more kids to celebrate with him for Father's Day next month.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

JakieK (#142), TFW wrote in her own words about her physical abuse of C when he was a toddler. She saw him as stubborn, willful and challenging, and that was when he was still in diapers. Can you imagine how she much worse she may have treated him when he actually had a voice, and opinions to verbalize? Who knows the depths of the damage she did to his psyche. She is a horrible mother.

May 12th, the day the Collin picture was posted, was also Florence Nightingale's birthday/International Nurses' Day/the end of Nurses' Week. Not that TFW would even remember or care. I think his timing was impeccable, the perfect trifecta. Birthday, Nurses' Day, Mother's Day.

I know Kate is obsessed with controlling everyone in her family to benefit her wallet. But I was trying to look at this objectively and there appears to be nothing there to be angry about. I hope People does run this story because they are suppose to be "journalists" which by definition requires objectivity. If they don't it becomes clear(er) that Kate Coyne is "in bed" with Kate.

Her comments about him in the book are extremely revealing. She said something like he tests her authority. Right, so, welcome to kids.

It was obvious she had no understanding of child development, and her being constantly frustrated with him over what sounds like normal testing of boundaries from a child may very well have escalated his problems.

Kids don't forget what happened to them in childhood and if all his memories of his mother are her pure inability to handle him resulting in abuse and unfair punishment, and moreover to treat him like his problems are all about HER (testing her authority), that's going to stick with him.

I thought that the sheeple believed that Jon was dead. They claim that she does everything all by herself as a struggling single mom. He looks pretty darn healthy in that picture. Is it a wax figure or he is propped up for a photo shoot?

NJGal51 said...

What I always remember about her treatment of him was when she was giving him the lecture because he said his sister’s hairdo was ugly and she said something to the effect of: “Don’t give me those scared I’m in trouble eyes(or look).” That, to me, spoke volumes because he knew he’d unleashed her wrath.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Lorrie (#143), yeah, there's no way TFW would've intentionally skipped a Mother's Day post...her annual opportunity to shine a light on herself as a suffering, struggling, exhausted single mom who "breathes" for her kids. Tough break, Schmoops!

Winsomeone said...

I find it alarming that after all of this time, apparently Collin isn't able to leave the "school" long enough to have a pizza with his dad and sister off site..that they have to have the cake in his room. What in the world did this poor boy do to have him locked up like this? Kate is the one who needed to be locked up, not him. Whatever he did, she caused him to do so by her treatment of him.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

AuntieAnn, Jon's really got Kate in a corner here. His photo is generic in that it looks like a facility but we've no idea what or where it is. It's Collin's bday and Jon brought his sister, along with cake and pizza. Jon looks proud and loving, standing behind his son.
OTOH, Kate has never once even mentioned spending Collin's birthday with him. She's never posted one photo, or alluded to bringing him home for Christmas.
IOW, this really make her look shittier.
I'd keep my veneers covered if I was her.

Layla said...

I was wondering when the change of custody with Hannah occurred. Looking at Kate's IG, she made a post on January 4th with both an inspirational quote "Let your faith be bigger than your fear" and the "Best mom in the world" award from Alexis. She wrote that those jumped out at her when she needed them most. One month later (Feb 4th) was when Jon posted the photos of Hannah with him on Super Bowl Sunday. No way would Kate allow Hannah to go to a fun Super Bowl celebration with her father on a school night. The reason Kate posted pictures of her Super Bowl food (but none of the kids) is because she knew people would ask where the missing child was. I also think H was not in the "rainy day ice cream" photo. She wrote that comment about "the ones who refused to be in the photo" so people wouldn't ask questions. She had carefully crafted a scenario where she, as the ever-sacrificing martyr-mom, was granting the kids their requests for privacy, and then Jon, in just 2 days of IG posts, blew the whole thing apart. Sweet.

I would also think Collin could go on weekend passes, and be taken to orthodontia ( and medical ) appts too off site. Has he not improved at all? I can't think his issues are that severe. What has 2 1/2 years of treatment done then? Though maybe that's a commonroom, idk. Still.

Wowser said...

Tucker’s mom-i think we haven’t seen any pics with Kate and Colin because either the facility will not allow her to see him because of colin’s Abuse allegations or because Colin refuses to see her (or both) and i believe Jon’s posts are alluding to that. Think about it...if TFW wanted to one-up jon, all she’d have to do is produce one pic of the 2 of them together. Unless she’s good at photoshop, I’d lay bets a picture doesn’t exist. Go jon!

Layla said...

Anyone else remember reading (was it last summer when the custody issues were making the news?) that Hannah was very disturbed by the way Kate treated Collin and had opened up to Jon about it? She was always the leader, the little mom to her siblings, and she cared about C. Now, a year later, she is the one who was there for his birthday. I'm sure Jon did not force her to go. She would have gone because she wanted to go. I think I always believed that being Kate's favorite would ruin her. That she'd always side with her mother and go along with her due to her special treatment. Kate rewards kids who go along with her wishes. But Hannah didn't. She stood up for herself, and she's standing strong for Collin. I didn't give her enough credit. She has a big heart.

I don't think, I KNOW many of us are personally touched to see the photo of Jon and Collin.
Really, it's all we wanted, to see that Collin was ok and that he wasn't alone. That's what concerned me the most. Thinking of Collin, not with his family, alone on birthdays and holidays, seeing his mother positively smother new puppies with love and affection and fuss over grandiose birthday bashes he's never attend.
It's good to know that Jon is connected to Collin and that's what I feared the most-that Kate would have managed to break the bond between him and his father.
I think perhaps Mady will never have the same relationship with Jon, but for most of them, I have hope.

The funny thing is I doubt Kate even crossed his mind when Jon was posting his happiness over seeing his son for his bday. They HATE that.

I had a tab open with a post from Milo's IG and just as I was closing the tab I realized too late that it was something I hadn't seen yet. It was an older pic of Collin and she made some comments about him. I went to Milo's IG page and that post is no longer there. Interesting.

I looked at my history and it shows that Milo's post with the pic of Collin said:

Kate Coyne would never spin in Jon's favor. Plus, all of the media who were suckered by Kate have, or will have, egg on their faces when they see that Jon's been fighting an uphill battle with both hands tied behind his back for YEARS, just to get to this point.

There's no doubt Coyne enabled Kate for years. It seems they connected and I wonder if Kate gave Coyne her loyalty and access when Kate was at her peak of fame and tabloid queen status. That can make someone's career. She was THAT in demand.
So, Coyne's got a soft spot for Kate. And a blind spot when it comes to pimping kids.

Layla said...

Just think about the praise Milo, Nick_Moy, and the rest would be heaping upon Kate if she had been the one to visit C and post a picture. They'd gush about what a great mother she is, making sure that C gets a special celebration for his birthday, how generous she is to share a picture to show everyone that he is doing well, and practically nominate her for sainthood for remaining involved in his life. But no, it was Jon, so it has to be all wrong. He blew apart their claims that he is not involved in the kids' lives, that he doesn't care about C, that C doesn't want to see him and hasn't seen him--by choice--for years. And now that it's evident that H is with Jon, it's even harder to claim he's uninvolved and only cares about himself. And the fact that H chose to be with her dad instead of Kate...they can't fathom it. But boy, were they ever happy to crow about his perceived failures as a father. Hypocrites.

Thanks, M. They included all of Jon's recent birthday pics:

http://people.com/tv/jon-gosselin-posts-photo-son-collin-14th-birthday/

Jon Gosselin Posts Photo with Son Collin Celebrating His 14th Birthday

Collin Gosselin celebrated his 14th birthday with dad Jon.

On Saturday, Jon, 41, shared a rare photo of Collin, who is enrolled in a program away from home for children with special needs. In the photo, Collin poses alongside Jon and his sister Hannah. A birthday cake covered in candles and a pizza can also be seen in the shot.

“Glad I could celebrate my son Collin’s 14th birthday with him and his sister!” Jon captioned the photo.

The post, shared the day before Mother’s Day, came after Jon publicly wished sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Leah and Joel a happy birthday on social media Thursday.

“Happy Birthday Hannah!!! 14 already,” he captioned a photo of the father-daughter duo at a local bakery in his hometown of Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. “Bday breakfast with my daughter before the bus stop!!!”

The former reality star also shared an old photo of the six siblings.

“Happy 14th Birthday to Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin!!!” he captioned the post. “I can’t believe it’s been this long!!! Whew that when fast!!! Daddy loves you all very much!!!”

Jon and Kate Gosselin finalized their divorce in 2009. Since their separation, Jon has been focused on his DJing career and battled his ex-wife for custody of the sextuplets and 17-year-old twins Mady and Cara.

In August 2016, Kate, 43, exclusively opened up to PEOPLE about her decision to enroll Collin in the program away from home, which she said “is helping him learn the skills he needs to be the best him he can be.”

“Collin has special needs,” the TLC star said. “[There’s] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we’ve had for a very long time, and it’s one I’ve dealt with on my own. I’ve felt very alone in this. By the same token, it’s not something that has only impacted me or him – our entire family has been impacted.”

“We miss him so much, so it’s been hard because there is a huge hole in our family without him here,” she added. “But it comforts us to know he’s where he needs to be right now, and I can feel good about that.”

A few months later, in November 2016, Kate told PEOPLE that the program is helping Collin get “precisely what he needs.”

“I don’t know what the road ahead entails, but I’m very happy with the care that he’s getting, and am still completely comforted by the fact that he is so clearly exactly where he needs to be,” she said. “It comforts me as a mother — because when you, as a mom, can’t give your kids what they need, it is a huge comfort to find people who can.”

Last July, an episode of TLC Kate Plus 8 chronicled the sextuplets’ 13th birthday — with Collin notably absent.

“This year [was] much like last year,” said Kate. “Obviously the difference is that Collin wasn’t there. I am comforted with the fact that my kids, all of them, each unique child, is receiving exactly what they need and that hasn’t changed. I’ve said that before, I’ll say it again. It’s a bittersweet moment [and] we’ve had many of them.”

“You can’t do anything without realizing he’s missing,” she added. “So we may not say it, but it’s always there.”

LOL, Admin (185). Aurelie also pointed out that Collin was "notably absent" from his 13th birthday, and that Jon has been fighting for custody of the kids. Not one negative word about him. Heads are gonna roll over at People very soon -- wonder if Aurelie will be pink-slipped by the end of the day. :) Is US Weekly hiring?

There's a comment from TFW after the 12th birthday party which really shows her detachment from that poor boy (I can't find the article right now). She said something like, this birthday was basically the same as the previous birthday, except C wasn't there. WTH???? One of her children was GONE. Not having his tonsils out, or off visiting a grandparent, or at sleepaway camp.
Or, in her insane analogy, away at college. He was GONE for treatment, and hasn't come back. So NOTHING was the same!

And that detachment makes me sad for C's 7 siblings, and especially his 2 brothers. Were they given the opportunity to process their loss?
Those 7 children who have 7 individual minds and hearts? Except for the death of a sibling or parent (heaven forbid), this is about as awful a loss as a young child can experience.

Last night Milo posted another of her Simple[-minded] Reminders and dedicated it to K8. And then she got a little snippy.

"Tag a mom and let her know she's doing an amazing job."

This is weird. I had left some tabs open on my laptop last night and just came back to my computer for the first time since then. I had a tab open with a post from Milo's IG and just as I was closing the tab I realized too late that it was something I hadn't seen yet. It was an older pic of Collin and she made some comments about him. I went to Milo's IG page and that post is no longer there. Interesting.

I looked at my history and it shows that Milo's post with the pic of Collin said:

"You deserve the support and encouragement to #KeepOnKeepingOn @Kateplusmy8 Don't let anyone dull your shine...Tons of respect for you..."


I wonder why she deleted it. Was it on TFW's orders?

&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Now I see what happened. Milo originally used a pic of Collin in that post, and then she changed the pic to the "Tag a mom and let her know she's doing an amazing job" pic.

I know that I saw that post with an older pic of Collin.

Hi, Tucker's Mom! Good to see you again. Your comments were missed, but I didn't want to inquire about you this time because I didn't want to look like a stalker, lol.

FlimsyFlamsy, that quote's in the People article in my comment #185. It's in the next to last paragraph.

I'd love People to have the nerve to print this headline: "Kate Gosselin Loses Custody Of Daughter." Or "Jon Gosselin Reunited With Son." Just to "set the record straight," ya know.

"Dead Father Tracks Down Missing Son's Whereabouts"

Thanks, Former Lurker! I missed everyone here and a glad to be back, catching up!
Seeing Jon and Collin together made me appreciate how this site has stood the test of time. We've outlasted a handful of other sites and it's because we've had the same, steady leadership from Admin and the pool persons, and such an amazing crew of muumuu & crock-wearing friends on the veranda, sipping on our Rumspringa. Ok, sometimes chugging it, lol!

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Tucker's Mom (#193), I sip my rumspringa only from a thin china cup, with my pinkie sticking out, thank you very much. And very slowly, so I don't get the vapors.

MamaC said...

I am really trying to wrap my brain over why she kept Collin away from his father for two years. What mother wouldn't try everything to help him before it came to this? He definitely could have benefited from both parents support. She made it seem like he was dead set against seeing his father and that Jon had hurt him beyond repair. That kid does not look like someone who hates his father. unconscionable

Old poster said...

Kate still hasn’t posted on Instagram since Jon’s pics blew up her charade.
How many attorneys did she call today???

Hopefully any lawyer worth his salt will her that Jon didn’t do anything wrong and he was well within his rights to post a family picture. He didn’t say anything about where Collin is or about his treatment.

NJGal51 said...

Maybe TFW wasn’t home to post anything because it’s upfronts week. I wonder if TLC and TFW were a part of it.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

MamaC (#195), I think the question of why TFW has behaved this way has an easy answer: she hates Jon more than she loves her kids. I believe she actually derived pleasure from keeping C's whereabouts a secret from Jon. It was, in some twisted way, a victory for her.

I don't see TLC/Discovery on this week's upfronts schedule, as per Deadline. I think she's just sulking.
