Who's the dude at the end stroking her hair and saying I love you? Tell me that's out of context. Slow down buddy, you also need to figure out if your date is a serial killer! Or ball buster.

NJGal51 said...

LOL, the guy in the escape room with her said “if this works, I love you”. He was probably referring to her getting the door open so that he could escape being cooped up with her any longer. Also, the scene with the “matchmaker” while she’s trying on clothes and he says something to the effect of “on the 2nd or 3td date you can show a little skin”....don’t tell me that she’s going to play “modest” when we’ve all seen the pictures of her pumping gas and running around the Statue of Liberty/New York in her hooker garb phase. Not to mention the foot licking (yuck ๐Ÿคฎ) show.

"Does anyone remember where that college was that she visited with Mady and Cara? Wasn't that NC?"

Yes, I can't remember the name, but it was in NC. I live in NC so I'm always wary when she's here. She and the children vacationed in Lake Norman in NC a couple of years ago. It wasn't in a show so people speculated it was a freebie from Figure 8. They went to NC when the show was Jon and Kate and just Kate. Ugh. I hope she didn't find some sucker from NC. Maybe they just filmed here because of Figure 8.

Did that guy "hard shell" or "hard sell"? Actually both apply.

AuntieAnn said (in last post)…
LOL @ the date whom, according to the shrew, didn't connect with her. Love how he slaps the table as if to say "There, that's over. I got a full belly and money to boot....can I go home now?"
Then there's refined Schmoopy chugging down her vino with all the elegance of a sailor on shore leave.
**********************
I'm dying here, Auntie!
BTW, one of my boys just left for Canada. He's never been but is spending a couple months exploring with a few of his buddies. I gave him a list of yummy things to bring home for me.

*****************
After watching that promo, I'm even more shocked that this show was ever given the green light. Normally when you see a promo you see something interesting or funny that makes you think, "I want to watch that!". They draw you in with the best moments. Not this show. It looks like all they have is Kate talking about herself, Mady B!tching, Cara pretending she's mute, and a few random guys thrown in. If those are the best moments, then it's going to be an even bigger disaster than we expected.

Anonymous said...

The sooner she understands that it was never about her or even the twins, but rather the adorable toddler sextuplets, the better off we will all be.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Auntie Ann (previous post), always happy to see your name!

NJGal51 (#2), yeah, the notorious foot licking, with alcohol consumption before and after, kinda blew the shy, retiring coquette narrative to smithereens. And if that's how she acted with cameras rolling, well...

PatK said...

After re-watching the video, it's obvious they purposely threw in a couple of guys who weren't quite as aesthetically pleasing to the eye as Kate would have expected. You know damn well she may be desperate for a relationship, but she's got her mind made up that the guy has to be good looking.

I will not watch, but I can assume reading the recaps will be a hoot.

Sue said...

Apparently Steve isn’t available. I know there’s always been speculation about Kate and Steve but the following was posted on Gina’s FB page on Saturday in her comments. I tried to post this on the last thread but was unsuccessful.

Also, the scene with the “matchmaker” while she’s trying on clothes and he says something to the effect of “on the 2nd or 3td date you can show a little skin”..



&&&&

I'm going to go ahead and predict that the dating advice these "experts" dish out to her is going to range from bad to terrible. Show skin 3 dates in??? Reminds me of the dumb advice (single) Deanna gave her.

This idea that a woman can strategically time when best to show off a little skin to optimize catching the fish is shallow and stupid. The advice should be BE YOURSELF. If it's yourself to show a little skin, do it. If it's yourself to be more modest, be more modest. Any man worth their salt though will see through any kind of manipulation or strategy you're trying to do. Be yourself I get is old and cliched, but it's the correct advice.

Oh my God I couldn't make it through 15 seconds of the clip, this has to be without a doubt the worst show put on television ever. TLC has gone to a new low

It looks like she took their “advice” judging by that purple/blue spotted monstrosity she is wearing mid clip.

Kate is always hyper-aware of where the cameras are, so I think it's pretty much impossible for her to "be herself." This has been the problem with the "realness" of her reality presence since day one---instead of living ("being") on camera, she's always acting. And so ham-handedly that she's painful to watch. Nothing ever seems genuine about her behavior. She tries to force a certain reaction from the viewer, not from whoever else happens to occupy the frame with her, and it typically goes over like the proverbial lead balloon. After seeing herself on the small screen all these years, you'd think she might have gotten a clue. But I don't think she ever will.

For all of the heavy-handed emphasis on her Kate-Mom-of-8 image, I don't believe Kate has any idea who she is. To paraphrase from that wonderful movie "To Die For," she's "nobody if she's not on TV."

I'm guessing she wasn't talking about Wernersville PA. ;)

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Admin (#10), and again, this born-again virgin narrative is utterly ridiculous. TFW has already been photographed in Daisy Dukes at the freakin' gas station, with the fake girls front and center. And as for skin display on the show, she traded in her demure PA housewife one-piece for bikinis a decade ago, and was more than happy to strut her stuff for TLC's cameras. So as Yoda might say, modest she isn't.

foxy said...

It doesn't seem as though those dates are at upscale places. The one where she is guzzling wine has a diner atmosphere to it in the clip that is shown. This is really low budget for her dates. Doesn't look as though she is getting fish in paper unless it is fish and chips in a newspaper.

The "relationship expert", Rachel Dealto, posted the TLC clip on her Instagram:

This looks INCREDIBLY STUPID

Former Lurker said...

I have a feeling TFW might be playing modest because she's not as thin as she was back in her bikini and Daisy Duke shorts days.

ncgirl said...

"The "relationship expert", Rachel Dealto, posted the TLC clip on her Instagram"

I looked at this woman's website at https://www.racheldealto.com/ She was on some Lifetime show. She's a former lawyer with 2 children. She offers life coaching for high prices. What struck me as funny was she offers customized hypnosis audio tracks as part of her courses. Can she hypnotize Kate to make her a pleasant person or make her cluck like a chicken?

Clare in Nebraska said...

I think the college was Belmont Abbey and they have a women's lacrosse team that Cara was interested in.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

foxy (#16), Schmoopy would split a Subway sandwich with a hobo under a bridge if it meant getting her botoxed mug back on screen.

Sad but true (#13), Kant said, "I think, therefore I am." But I believe Kate would say, "I'm on TV, therefore I am."

Sad but true said...

foxy said... 16

I doubt any high-end restaurant would want to insult their clientele by having The Shrieking One invade with a camera crew, hair and make-up, and production assistants in tow. Since it doesn't really appear there are other people around, at least with respect to the meal with the guy who is "not connecting," I am guessing they staged these dinner dates in otherwise empty establishments and perhaps brought in a few extras to create the illusion of "reality." Oh how that word has been subverted in this industry.

I'm wondering if we'll be treated to the usual inane Twitter live-stream, and if Kate will be the headliner for that. Will the matchmakers participate? Mady? (I'm sure Cara wouldn't touch it with a 100-foot pole.) Their comments would be far more interesting. And I doubt we'll be hearing from any of the "dates," who probably collected their paychecks and slunk away with their heads down as quickly as possible.

She got further away than that. That Treehouse Vineyard (stomping grapes, oh god) scene is in either Oregon, NC, or CA. I looked it up, and they don't have any sites in NYS or the N.E.

&&&&&&

MikeB said... 127

Re: Treehouse Vineyards, I think that will wind up being in NC. Figure 8 is located just outside Raleigh, NC and it isn't too much of a drive to where that Treehouse is located. IIRC, she took the kids to the same general area on vacation a couple of years ago.

If you notice in the teaser trailer, one of the restaurants she is at has "Charlotte's Favorite Restaurant" in the window and it doesn't look like the grape stomping guy with her. She probably filmed at least a few dates in the area.

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

I looked around a bit at the "relationship expert" Rachael Dealto's Instagram and she was posting about filming a TV show in NC last September.

On September 25th, she posted a pic from an aerial yoga studio. In the comments, one person commented they recognized it as a place in LA, but Rachel told her it was at their Charlotte, NC studio. Then, the yoga studio piped in:

racheldealto

They say the best way to learn aerial yoga is to do it on national television so millions can laugh...with you. Had a ridiculously fun time shooting today on a super secret project. Special thanks to @superlovetees for getting me some amazing gear with my favorite message of LOVE. ❤️

They must have been filming that day before her flight:

racheldealto

@vtmomo4boys haha well I did have professional hair and makeup this morning. It tends to help. A LOT. ๐Ÿ˜‚

&&&&

Also, I checked the website and Facebook page of that Treehouse Vineyards, and I don't think the grape stomping is a regular thing. They do wine tastings, special events, and weddings. But, the day after that post by Rachel they had their annual grape stomping festival. They probably didn't film the grape stomping "date" the day of the festival, (a Saturday), but maybe the day before.

So Mady and Cara are about to graduate from high school, and it's all about Mom. Now I'm convinced she's going to nose her way into People with a graduation picture of her and the girls (her daughters, not the implants).

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I think she fancies herself a Real Housewife where the topics of conversation revolve around wine and maybe men. Does she want somebody to knight her as cool and hip because she thinks she knows her way around wine? So knighted.

An Instagram pic of wine and two glasses with a teasing caption is just stupid.

Former Lurker said...

Back to that yoga studio in Charlotte, NC that they filmed in last September. The Charlotte studio posted this pic on September 25th (the day that "relationship expert" Rachel Dealto posted on her IG). I'm not sure who's doing the aerial yoga, but you can see a film crew in the background and in the mirror:

JTN said...

Goodness that promo was cringe worthy. I basically gathered she likes alcohol and is not too picky about a partner... and she's not too picky about the alcohol either. She chugged her wine like an 18 year old at a keg party.

What an idiot she is. It’s already been announced that fake date will air on 10 June. Instead of teasing and hinting with winking faces ๐Ÿ˜‰ she should be promoting the show. I wonder if Brownie is still buying her stale cereal. I guess Brownie has replaced Deanna and Jamie or maybe she’s just more convenient since she lives in PA.

Especially when the only eyewitness reply to the post is from BROWNIE, occasional babysitter/kid entertainer/ convenient "friend" from seasons past, when Kate's post seems to imply a real "celebration"---i.e., of more than TWO!

Is this all she's left with? Is Skevie really gone?

This "relationship expert" better be careful. If she starts getting too much attention, Kate will banish her from her life. No one steals the spotlight from Kate!

Barb in Nebraska said...

Saw the commercial and came right over to this site! I think a lot of people will turn in to the first episode out of curiosity but after that, no one will watch this. The scenes with the twins, with Cara just sitting there, were so sad!

The latest Instagram picture looks like a stock photo. I think we can expect more photos like this on the next few months. I wonder if They TLC will take control of her social media during the production period.

First, That new post is so typical Kate. Instead of hinting about her tv return just come right out and say it. The promo video has been released so what’s the big secret? Unless she’s hinting on another Kateplus8 reboot?
Second, the twins prom and graduation are coming up in the next few days but it’s all about ME

FlimsyFlamsy said...

CC (#43), good to see you! Yeah, I made a similar comment on the previous post -- that whatever the word is, it sure ain't "date."

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Kate Plus Kept Woman isn’t quite as catchy so.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

According to TFW, her son C's emotional difficulties were so extreme and disruptive that he had to be removed from his home. Seven children have spent years without their beloved sibling, which can't help but have impacted them emotionally. A mother who "loves 'til it hurts" would do everything in her power to help in his treatment and recovery and ultimate return to his family..Instead, Ms. "I BREATHE For My Kids" chose this time to land a man. She is a selfish, insufferable cow. Oh, and a horrible mother (*waves to GollyGee in heaven*).

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Ingrid (#47), isn't it something that TFW's parenting is so egregious that the dating-for-dough aspect of her character is barely a blip on the radar?

NJGal51 said...

I wonder if Ms “loves till it hurts” will let the kids see Jon for Father’s Day. The twins are 18 and can do what they want but the remaining 4 tups should see him. I know that it’s been said that they don’t see him but I’m sure that’s because she’s poisoned their brains against him ever since Hannah went over to the dark side.

How can she still be spouting “8 kids”? Two live with Jon, two are 18 and should be heading off to college so, if my math is correct, that leaves 4. Not an unusual number of kids. Oh, wait, never mind. Only 4 kids would make her mediocre.

Sue, after reading your comment, I googled Gina's name for the first time in years. To my surprise, the first thing that came up is a rather detailed bio on her company's website. She talks about her husband and sons and discusses some of the details of their family's move from New Zealand to Maryland in 2003.

I already thought that was too much info to put online, and then I got to the part where she reveals she had a heart attack in August of 2016:

I kinda wanna copy and paste my comment about milo from the last post.Judging by her removing "supporting Kate Gosselin" line from her bio.I wonder if Jon getting custody made her realize that maybe Kate isn't all she was out to be.There's a quote from a historical person(forget the name) that pretty much saids that even the most radical person can change their minds about someone or something.Personally if this dating show doesn't get milo running back on then i guess we can safely said that she no longer supports Kate.

Of course she has to name drop she was there when Kate made a point not to mention who was there.

Two glasses of wine. Two people. Kate and a creepy fan. No family, no friends, not even some coworkers from production. It's funny but sad. I remember the premiere of a new show that was coming out once when I was nannying, and one of the parent's was the star. The show only lasted half a season but no matter. They knew it wasn't going to last yet had a big premiere party and it must have been 60 people there. All of production, plus family, friends and even a few neighbors. Everyone was so friendly and excited and supportive. Does this woman comprehend having one fan as a friend is not normal and that she has no support system?

You know I had this same thought? For as stupid as I find the whole life coaching industry, this huckster here has personality, knows how to use social media, is sharp and good at what she does. I think there's a good chance viewers will like her even with dumb stuff spewing out of her mouth. She could be the new Aunt Jodi, and Kate won't put up with that for long. Kate's the type who would actually pass on something good for Kate (like a season 2) just to make sure this woman doesn't steal her thunder.

Interesting said...

HLN had a segment where they were talking about Kate's new show. During the segment, Jon was on the phone talking about his feelings about the show. You can view the video here:

https://twitter.com/HLNTV/status/1128722299060772864

Jon said Collin had one visitation with his other siblings, and that they're "working on that".

That dating coach has a strong resemblance to Kate. So many women have the straight bleached blond hair you have to look twice to make sure who it is. After reading Gina's post I can see Skeeve would be a fool to leave her for Katie. She seems like she puts others first and is strictly for her family.

BlueJay said...

I suppose dating, you know, I'm just going to go right ahead here and date myself folks. I suppose Kate can't be bothered to date like folks did back in the old days.

You found a local gentleman you thought was nice looking as you drove up and down the main street in your car or your parents borrowed car for that matter after finishing your work on a Friday night on the farm as you cruised up and down back and forth to see who was available--or who was going steady with who already. And the young man would then once the car was parked approach the car and ask the young lady if she'd like to for a cruise and then you know you'd park by the the soda shop in town or pay the 25 cents for a soda or go to the only movie in town is you were so inclined if things went well. It's called dating.

Back in my day you went out with a young lady or the young man on the weekends and then you got into a relationship. If you were older you went steady without permission of course. But it's incocievable to me that Kate simply can't you know just find someone local and go on a date without needing all this nonsense on the television. Hello my name is Michael, hello I'm Kate, you like to go out have a nice meal? Is it really all that hard?

Personally I think she seems to MAKE it hard on herself. So she has well several children at home no different then growing up on a farm when people used to have several kids a home really you know. I know it's not quite as common these days. But dating isn't as hard as she's made it out to be I don't think.

And being a single parent lots of people are single and I don't see them needing a reality television show to find a date. I know there's online dating these days and all that business but sigh. Watching that clip was just utterly painful. My goodness.

I suspect thought dating locally isn't exactly her kettle of fish either though--hence her first go around with her ex husband was local. But as my mother said there were plenty of other fish in the pond.

This show she has, I don't see it lasting long. But that's my take. Maybe she should just take a drive up and down main street where she lives. No that's...that's more a teenager thing of the by-gone era, I know I told one of my children to try that once years ago to find a date and he just looked at me like I lost all my marbles.

OMG, it looks like only BROWNIE is there celebrating! LMAO!

frugalfit_hippiechick
Great SHARING this bottle of wine you!! ๐Ÿท So excited for you!!!!!!

Of course she has to name drop she was there when Kate made a point not to mention who was there.

Two glasses of wine. Two people. Kate and a creepy fan. No family, no friends, not even some coworkers from production. It's funny but sad.

&&&&&&&&&&

I don't even believe that Brownie was there with her. If she were there, TFW would post a pic of them together drinking wine and celebrating. TFW staged that phony pic. Plus, how many mothers with school age kids are getting together for wine on a Tuesday evening? I'm not buying it. Pics or it didn't happen.

Personally I think she seems to MAKE it hard on herself. So she has well several children at home no different then growing up on a farm when people used to have several kids a home really you know. I know it's not quite as common these days. But dating isn't as hard as she's made it out to be I don't think.


&&&

I completely agree with you, she's over complicating dating. It's a myth dating is difficult or hard these days. No it's not. If anything it's easier, because it's much more acceptable for women to ask the man out as well. If you know how to make friends and be social, you can find a date. Ask a guy you like if they'd like to grab coffee sometime. Done.

foxy said...

Daily mail has an article on what Jon thinks about his ex's new show. He said to each their own and whatever keeps the lights on. Some people who must be plants praise her raising 8 kids alone and others tell the truth of what really happened. How does she keep on getting these parts. You can see it is all an act.

.... And being a single parent lots of people are single and I don't see them needing a reality television show to find a date. I know there's online dating these days and all that business but sigh. Watching that clip was just utterly painful. My goodness.

I suspect thought dating locally isn't exactly her kettle of fish either though--hence her first go around with her ex husband was local. But as my mother said there were plenty of other fish in the pond.

This show she has, I don't see it lasting long. But that's my take. Maybe she should just take a drive up and down main street where she lives. No that's...that's more a teenager thing of the by-gone era, I know I told one of my children to try that once years ago to find a date and he just looked at me like I lost all my marbles.

&&&&&&&&&

Bluejay, I agree with all of your points. But, I just don't think this TV show has anything at all to do with TFW genuinely wanting to date and meet a significant other. It's simply a pretense for another television show, for more easy money for the woman who refuses to actually get a job, and just another attention grabbing six weeks for the insatiable fame whore.

We've talked for years about Mady and Cara going away to college. But who knows? If Mady's ego has been puffed up by this little star turn on the new show (without the other 6 pesty siblings), maybe she'll want to stay closer to home for school so she can be available for future filming. Meanwhile, Timbuktu may not be far enough away for Cara.

But if the twins leave, I wonder who TFW is grooming to replace them? She needs constant support and encouragement. Who will fill that void?

Layla said...

Kate posted the wine picture and said she was celebrating with friends (indicating more than one friend). Turns out it was one lone friend, Brownie. I remember in Robert's book he said that she doesn't have any local friends. It appears he was right. She has nobody to celebrate with other than a former obsessed fan. But she still tries to make it look like she has more than one friend. How sad.

Kate won't look for dates in her area because she thinks she's too good for any man from that area. She has called NYC her second home, said she's a CA girl at heart, spends as much time as possible away from PA. I wouldn't be surprised if, as soon as the younger kids graduate, she doesn't sell the house and run. An apartment in NYC, a beach house in NC--anything but PA. She seems to hate living there. I doubt that any local man wants anything to do with her, she has no friends there--why stay? I don't think she ever envisioned herself living in Ghettoville long-term.

&&&&&&&&&&

Who knows if he really knows for sure, but in that mew Daily Mail article they say that Jon told HLN that Mady and Cara are off to college in the fall:

Jon Gosselin revealed his thoughts about his ex Kate's new dating show called Kate Plus Date during an HLN interview on Wednesday.

When asked how he is taking the news, the former reality star, 42, replied: 'To each their own. Whatever keeps the lights on.'

And after a bitter divorce in 2009 that ended the couple's show Jon And Kate Plus Eight, Jon added: 'I just work a normal job. I kind of stay out of the limelight.'

'I haven't been on reality TV in, like, 10 years. I do some DJing but it doesn't bring the limelight like it did 10 years ago,' he noted.

The exes are also still in the midst of a major custody battle over their eight children and the interviewer pressed Jon on the matter.

'Two of the kids live with me, Hannah and Collin, so they won't be on the show. They live with me and my girlfriend Colleen. We have a house right down from Kate's house,' he explained.

'The twins (Cara and Madelyn) are going off to college and the other 4 are living with Kate. Joel, Aaden, Leah, and Alexis. So 8 kids in 3 different school districts.

The current arrangement allows Jon to see the other children not living with him, but it is restricted in scope. And even the siblings are limited in seeing each other.

'I see them but I really don't have any interaction with the other six. Colin had one visitation with his siblings since he's been back. We're working on that.'

Former Lurker said...

Jon said, "'I haven't been on reality TV in, like, 10 years."

That's a bit off. He did that Couples Therapy show with Liz about five years ago. (I had to look it up to recall the name of the show and the year, but I knew it couldn't have been ten years ago.)

ncgirl said...

I was reading a live chat of another TLC show, and the comments about Kate's commercial are funny.

"Have you noticed I'm single?"
No, Kate Gosselin, we haven't noticed because no one gives a crap about you. Go away.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

So the second date,if there is one, is about getting to know each other through conversation. Makes good sense except for this teeny tiny detail: IT'S ALL FILMED. How is some dude supposed to use ignore the fact that there are cameras on him? That there's a fuzzy boom microphone dangling right over his head? That his outfit had to be approved by production? That he is most likely wearing pancake makeup for the first time in his life? And, perhaps, the weirdest aspect: that this getting-to-know-you chitchat begins with the director shouting "Action?"

Realest reality, y'all.

Layla said...

I'm so happy to see so many old posters checking in. You have all been missed! I don't see JoyFromVA yet--I wanted to chat with her about my newest favorite weekend destination--Middleburg. Check in, Joy, and let's chat!

AuntieAnn, you know me too well--Coffee Crisps were the first item on my "bring this back from Canada for Mom" list. DS looked at it, grinned, and said, "You didn't even need to put that on there--I already knew". He's sending pictures back for us to see his adventures, and Prince Edward Island is so beautiful! That's stop #1, and I was so excited to see it because I loved the Anne of Green Gables books when I was a girl. Now I definitely want to go and see it myself.

Interesting how much the coach looks like TFW. Except that the coach is thinner. At first I thought the coach was TFW.

That view of TFW from the back when she was trying on the grey sweater....yowsa! Girl has put on some weight.

That preview is just stupid. No authenticity from TFW in the least. I can't imagine why anyone would be interested in her.

JoyinVirginia said...

Howdy Layla! I'm checking in, now that my favorite reality show of all time, Survivor, had their finale lat night. and WOW, that was a terrific show! engaging players, exciting finale!
I have never been to Middleburg! Heard a lot about it. so do tell about what you enjoy there!

Anonymous said...

From Dmasy --

Hi, Joy. Survivor! My hubby and I watch. I have recently subscribed to Hulu. They all ALL the seasons. I am watching old shows -- I never watched the original airing. The contestants living conditions were much more primitive (and harsher) in the early years. The strategy part of the game has become more focal in the newer years.

Just for the record, I won't be watching the Kate/Date show. I can find 100 programs I would rather spend my time with. Or, I could move my dryer and clean the lint that has collected behind it.

Bluebird said...

Just when I thought Kate was finally flushed down the drain, I saw her ugly face on TLC. What's with them, do they really think anyone cares if she's dating? I guess these actors are struggling and figure they would endure pretending that they are interested in her for a paycheck. I can't imagine anyone in their right mind would really want to hook up with this useless piece of crap.

I will not look at the show, but will certainly look forward to Admin's recount of it. I'm sure there will be times that I'll have a good laugh.

Waving to everyone here!

NJGal51 said...

I really think that the only reason she got this show is because TLC has to fulfill a contract the have with her. I really can’t imagine that anyone in the executive offices of TLC think that this will be a hit, hence the 10 PM time slot. I won’t watch The first airing to give them any ratings but I might tune in to another airing just to see the train wreck. Please no lectures, I’m just being honest because everyone loves a good laugh.

Welcome back to all the old posters. It’s good to see you. Also, welcome Barb. Please stick around because I think you’ll enjoy this group. Also, if you know anything about what’s happened to MiloAndJack (AKA firedupforkate) please let us know. She’s been gone for close to a year.

JustMissy said...

NJGal51 said... 100... I’m with you. I’m not going to miss this train wreck but I don’t want to give her a viewer. If I watch or dvr a repeat will that count in the ratings? Please advise. Also, why is she still cramming those Fred Flinstone feet in shoes that are too small? I bet she thinks a size 7 is petite and feminine and she’s never been a 9.5 and is not going to start now so she keeps cramming those hooves in shoes that are too small. It looks gross.

Layla said...

JoyinVirginia (97)
Hi Joy! Good to see you back. I was hoping you'd have some insight into Middleburg because I'm loving it more each time we go--most recently for a Kentucky Derby party. It was in an older, very elegant stone house surrounded by fields and horses. It was just beautiful. It is definitely horse country, very quaint, lots of upscale little shops in town. I walked outside early one morning and it was so quiet. Looking out at the trees and the rolling hills, a little morning mist..sigh. Things get pretty frenetic in the DC suburbs, so we really appreciate a peaceful escape. DH was asking whether we might want to think about a country home there instead of PA, but I'm not sold on the idea just yet. We have family in PA, and that's the most important thing. Of course, there is already a "family house" in PA, so we don't really need to buy anything...we'll see. Lots to consider.

I love Survivor, too! I haven't watched in awhile but whenever I start I get totally sucked in. Some of my boys love it too, and we really get into it when we watch.

I don't watch anything with Kate, but it doesn't bother me if anyone else does. I love reading the snark here.

Yeah I don't get it either. She must have one hell of a binding contract with TLC to get this dating farce show. I know they lean towards diverse personalities for their programs, but she doesn't even have a personality. She has the charisma of a dead tree stump. What are they thinking? SMH

I was just going to post about this blind item. From the responses to the dating show, she's realized people want to see all the kids. I hope Jon stands his ground.

Lorrie said... 104

LOL, this is DEFINITELY Kate! But WTF would be the point at this juncture? Can she somehow try to compel the two who've left to film? Would anyone be interested in filming her with only 4? She really has some kind of sickness, I'm convinced of it.

Thanks for posting the link, Lorrie.

NJGal51 said...

Thanks for posting that link Lorri and it most definitely is TFW. Two live with Jon, Hannah by choice and Collin by court order. I don’t think that she can compel either of them to film. They both seem to be very happy. The twins will be going off to college so they won’t be around much unless she’d expect them film during vacations. That leaves 4 at home under her thumb. Legal action? Any lawyer that would take this on is doing it for money only. Can you believe the bad publicity that would come out of this if she actually tried it!

JTN said...

Her problem is they are now too old to be filmed without consent. Yes, they are technically minors, but no judge in their right mind will compel Hannah or Collin to film if they refuse. Pennsylvania allows marriage of minors (with parental consent) at age 15. While age of majority is 18, most jurisdictions will grant children once they hit marriage age, driving age, etc in a state quite a bit of leverage over their personal lives especially in a situation such as this one. In short, if you are old enough for marriage (even with parental consent), you are old enough to have opinions about what you want and do not want to do. If the children flat out refuse to film, she would lose any court battle over it. It's also not illegal in Pennsylvania to run away so if she pushed too hard, they could run away and possibly go to a state like Ohio which has some wonkiness in its age of majority laws. It's one of those that puts age of majority at 18 OR graduation from high school. If one ran away to Ohio and took the GED there and attempted to claim residency, it would be a tough case to enforce the fact they were still a minor.

Former Lurker said...

There's no way TFW could legally compel the kids to film a reality television show. That's just not ever going to happen. And, I don't think even TFW is stupid enough to think she could legally pursue that option.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

As much as I hate to say it, I think TFW might get some pretty good numbers for that first show. Even people who haven't thought of her for years might check it out out of curiosity.

I can't even stomach watching the promo. I wonder if C has seen it, and wonders why his mom seems so incredibly happy with him gone.

JoyinVirginia said...

I read a discussion board about the Outer Banks of North Carolina. recently a member who is a realtor has been discussing a new HGTV show, Beach Hunters. it's another kinda real kinda fake reality show. you see a couple looking for a beach house, deciding between 3. the real reality is that the couple has ALREADY PURCHASED one of the homes, the railroad dune another two homes that the couple can be filmed looking at, and you have the "suspenseful" conclusion where they debate which one to buy... but they already own the one they are filmed picking! Interesting discussion, if you like those shows.

JoyinVirginia said...

Augh! autocorrect strikes again! in post 111, the realtor finds another two homes that a couple can be seen touring, and comparing to third home, which they have already purchased!

Layla said...

I can't imagine that any judge will compel the kids to film--at least, not Hannah and Collin. First, the judge would have to override Jon's wishes. Then the judge would have to decide against H&C's best interests. I don't think anyone can argue that filming was harmful to C. H was forced to film even when she was having stress headaches. How could any judge ever believe it was a good idea to throw them back into that? The harm could be irreparable. Kate can get a real job if she needs money. Filming is not worth the damage it does to her kids.

MikeB said...

The Blind Gossip post mentions her trying a financial bribe. I can see her agreeing to give Jon control over the portion of the kids trust for Collin and Hannah if he will agree to give her sole parental custody of the other four tups.

Maybe something's changed but I remember when Kate kicked Jon to the curb she had Skeeve listed on the trust documents. This could be Kate's leverage, but I hope Jon doesn't fall for it.

The show's ratings will be dismal and I think the only way TLC will give it a second shot is if she can get the tups in it. The "new daddy" dynamic is the only thing that will pull viewers in and there's a very limited window before the tups are old enough that nobody will care.

NJGal51 said...

Hypothetically TFW approached TLC about filming more episodes of Kate+8 and was probably told that it was a no go with two and possibly four gone gone hence the blind item. If the twins were missing it could be explained away because they’re leaving for college. However, there were too many questions asked when Collin went missing from the show and it would be even more in your face if both Hannah and Collin didn’t film. I don’t think TLC would be interested if she can’t deliver at least 5 of the tups. Four kids is just too mediocre.

“My dream and my hope is that we can share holidays and birthdays and, for the kids, have it be peaceful.” LOL, Kate! You are the most litigious person I can think of! You take every opportunity, 10 YEARS later, to publicly lambaste your ex. You’ve alienated most of his children from him. Yet back then, when the pain & anger was probably even more raw, you wished for peace, love, harmony & rainbows? Again, I just have to say - LOL.

Sandylove said...

"I could care less if this all died tomorrow"... Sure Kate, sure.

NJGal51 said...

I know that the two boys and at least one of the girl tups still at home with TFW used to see Jon and always looked happy in pictures while with him. I wonder what TFW did/said to turn them so completely against him. She must have had an epic breakdown when Hannah left to live with Jon. Something that scared the kids very badly and they’re afraid that if they even visit him it will happen again. Since the see Hannah I’m sure that they know that Jon is a great guy. One has to wonder what miss sunshine and light says to them.

Giff said...

I think Kate has shown the children how easy it is for he to dismiss people from her life and never look back. Her own parents and siblings, close friends who helped her from day one, their father, and most of all Collin. They knew he was there alone and never visited by anyone. They probably knew she had no intention of ever seeing him again. That would be terrifying enough to keep anyone in line and do exactly what their mother wants.

Formerly Duped said...

It's sad because apart from missing seeing Jon, the boys cannot see colleen or Leah her BFF Hannah - or rarely for the latter.What horrible positions all the kids have been out in.Wonder what visits with Mommy are like for poor shunned H? Or for C to know he isn't even missed by his mother?

Jamesvader1194 said...

FlimsyFlamsy 110 With respect,i doubt it.The highest that i think this show could get is somewhere in the 900,000.If decade of Kate special taught us anything,Kate is nothing without the 8 and IF the 6 aren't in this then i don't see most people watching it.That and the fact that there really isn't much promotion and with big fans like Milo(maybe Barb,i don't know with her.)gone,i don't see much with this.

Whatever is lower than dirt cheap, that's the description of this show's budget. It probably costs TLC less to produce this than to buy episodes of an existing show as filler.

TFW's such a desperate famewhore, she'll work for practically nothing. Like somebody said, you pay peanuts, you hire monkeys.

It really is a lovely picture of Mady in her prom dress. Why do kids feel the need to photoshop all of their pictures though? Is the quest for perfection that great?

I think you're giving her too much credit. I predict that the first episode will get somewhere in the 700K range and the numbers will drop for the rest of the episodes. If I'm wrong, I owe you a Coffee Crisp (fresh from Canada). Deal?

The People story (link above) would be hilarious if she wasn't such a hypocrite. She could care less if this died tomorrow? Give me a break--she's fought tooth and nail to keep filming going, and cut off anyone who got in her way. She claims they moved to their current house because Jon wanted to move, but her own emails (printed in Robert's book) show that she was the one who demanded that they move. She bashes Jon for feeding the kids pizza instead of her pre-made organic meals, but we know that, at that time, someone else was cooking those meals and dropping them off. Also, she bragged about being referred to as "the pizza mom" back when she was trying to sucker people into buying her cookbook, so why is she acting like it's wrong for Jon to feed them pizza but admirable for her to do it? She's a piece of work, isn't she?

FlimsyFlamsy said...

So nice to see past posters!

Layla (#135), I don't want to hear any snide comments from TFW about the kids' diets when she hasn't prepared a single meal for C since he was 11.

And hey, Ms. Role Model, do you think it was healthy for your 5 daughters -- or 3 sons, for that matter -- to see you use spray-on chemical-laden fat-free salad dressing to keep your weight down?
Also, is the frequent wine guzzling a great example for them to follow? Heifer.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

No poke-and-dab post from TFW about Mady and Cara's prom? Wonder if TLC was filming the preparations at the house, now that the twins are official co-stars and not just part of the 8.

Somehow I don't believe she's going to get any magazine covers or many/any TV appearances for this premier. The premier date was announced last week and the press just gave a collective yawn. She wasn't trending anywhere, no interviews or major press coverage. Jon gets more press than she does these days. No People magazine covers so far, even though I'm sure Kate Coyne is fighting tooth and nail to get her one.

I don't think TLC is filming anything at the house. I suspect they only did this dating show to fulfill an existing contract and are thrilled to finally be free of any obligations to the Gosselins.

She's done nothing since the last episode aired 2 years ago. She's still hoping to make reality TV her career forever, no matter how bad her ratings are. She'll lie, cheat, steal, bribe, threaten, and blackmail to keep her face on TV. She doesn't understand that people are just sick of seeing her on TV. Very soon--sooner than she thinks--the cameras will be gone for good and she'll be stuck alone in Ghettoville, just another mediocre has-been.

The tups were really the stars of the show, not the twins.I also don't see why this show is coming to fruition either- agree it may be contractual. I think most viewers of TLC may not remember Kate Gosselin or just know her as Monster Mom, and tune in for the shows geared to younger viewers, not a 44 yr old seeking dates.There seem to be a lot of spinoffs of shows with 20+ 'stars.' Plus the weird medical shows which have done pretty well.

I agree formerly, the tups were always the draw, especially when they were toddlers. I hate to say it, but Mady was always had a bit of an attitude and was quite mean at times. Who wants to tune in to a show with a 40+ year old woman going on fake dates (screeching, flapping her hands and chugging her wine), hear Mady being snarky and watch Cara pick lint off her sweater. Those who tune in expecting to see the tups will be sorely disappointed.

Nothing about The Former Mrs. Jon Gosselin in most recent People I got, the one with Maghan and Harry on colbert with royal baby.

NJGal51 (#142), and how creepy is it that the star's teenage daughters are putting in their two cents about Mom's dates? And that this passes for entertainment in 2019?

Well, one thing is certain said...

At least she won't have the kids for more than three more years.. they will be 18 and can refuse on their own, or contract with their own salaries going direct to them, not her.

What will she do after they are 18?! I predict bankruptcy...

Here's a horror thought - apparently Vicki on one of the housewives shows promised to get engaged and married to keep her spot on the show. What people do for fame... it is so sad....

Former poster but just check in once in a while

just wondering said...

"Archery, playing tee-ball, grape-stomping, racquetball????"

Kate doesn't like anything of the kind!! The only guy Kate would even think twice about would be the guy that would send her off in a limo to a spa. Anyone else need not apply. Actually converse & spend time with??? LOLOLOL

Thanks for all who recommended Nestle Coffee Crisp. I was at my local Stop&Shop grocery store, in the international aisle looking for my PGTips tea from England, and there it was. Coffee Crisp! Grabbed one and yum! Will be going back and grabbing all the ones left!

The tups are 15 and in the 8th grade. They have 4 more years to graduate high school at the age of 19. It will be interesting to see how this turns out if they don't do as she tells them when they turn 18.

BlueJay said...

Well....when this show goes south I suppose Kate could just always turn out another cookbook.

The fact that TFW hasn't posted a prom pic of Mady and Cara leads me to believe that it might be either on TLC or on a People cover to promote the new show. I hope I'm wrong.

NJGal51 said...

Well it’s only about 3 weeks until the fake date show premieres and TFW is still not promoting it. She still hasn’t surfaced on twitter and only has had only one teaser on Instagram. I just don’t get it.

Former Lurker said...

NJGal51 (#151), and that one teaser pic that she posted on IG five days ago has only 215 comments. Lol, that is a pathetic level of interest. Also, many of the comments are asking if her Plus 8 show is coming back because they miss and want to see the kids.

Based on that, I agree with those who have said that the initial ratings for the premiere might be rather good just because people will be tuning in out of a desire to see the kids after a two year hiatus. After that, the ratings will probably dive.

"Well it’s only about 3 weeks until the fake date show premieres and TFW is still not promoting it."

I wonder if she'll get a NYC jaunt with Skeeve.

And a Duggar son and his wife are pregnant. That makes 5 pregnancies in the family.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

ncgirl (#153), and another Duggar pregnancy means another reason for TLC to focus more on that family.
Viewers are more likely to ooh and aah over adorable babies than over a miserable fortysomething divorcee playing tee ball with a complete stranger. Oooh, will next week's date be miniature golf, or skeet shooting? Stay tuned! Zzzzzzz...
