Even with getting her way, she is looking straight at the camera..... camera hog, fake, more annoying that a boil on the butt...….. nope, I am going to never ever watch this. Not even in reruns. Just the sight or sound of her is like fingernails on a blackboard.

Does anyone think she is auditioning for an acting career with this farce of a dating show? She can submit these tapes as "demos" of her many talents...shreiking, screaming, pulling faces...such talent cannot go unnoticed or unrewarded.

Remember Cara and Mady’s BFF and favorite hairstylist Ronnie? He just posted a pic of himself with Kate. Her hair is all done up with a full face of makeup.

That's exactly how I feel

Here's an article about Kate making pizza on the show.

https://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/kate-gosselin-faces-frustration-making-pizza-on-kate-plus-date/

"That part was fine, I guess — the fact that I had to, like, teach him,” Gosselin, 44, says in a solo interview. “I guess that was really sort of, like, my means to an end. Like, the sooner, like, he can get it … the sooner we can get out of here, really.”

Doesn't that just scream romance?

In Duggar news, Grandma Duggar, Jim Bob's mom, passed away at 78.

I just love that ROL put a pin in her balloon(s) at the 11th hour. It's about time someone did.

"Working with the help of a matchmaker"

There's no "matchmaking" going on here. The two "relationship coaches" didn't find or select any potential "matches". The two of them are mostly trying to be tv personalities, doing various shows along the way. They were simply hired for this gig, just as the "dates" were cast and hired to film a six episode b.s. reality television show.

I don't know how any of TFW's fans can be dumb enough to think there is anything real at all about this. Some of them actually think she's looking for love. Yeah, because all single moms travel thousands of miles away looking for a boyfriend.

TFW must be pretty nervous at this point. After getting paid for only three episodes two years ago, she's finally back but just for a lousy six episodes. That's not enough cash flow for her heavy overhead. But, then again, the kids' money probably pays for everything anyway.

Sad but true said...

Wonder if she's dusting off the Twitter for tonight. I no longer have the link that allows you to see everything tweeted on her TL. Anyone have it?

Looks like the only pre-show appearance gig Kate could land was on Jenny McCarthy's show on Sirius XM.

Whatever happened to the Today show/TLC relationship? Didn't she always get booked on the Today show to pimp a new season?

Also, if she's in NYC, maybe she filmed a quick clip for Extra. I think she's done that several times before.

In the couple of clips I've watched, the hair is in the face a LOT of the time. Why?

Reality will set in when...or if people realize this show is Kate, one twin rolling her eyes making smart comments, and the other one sitting there looking disinterested. No tups. No updates. Just Kate. Gross.

What if the guy who is paid to date her says, "no thanks, get me out of here."

Sad but true said...

So, within 6 episodes, she goes on 10 first dates and then 2 of those get "more intimate" dates? That does sound like speed dating. Cut in all the talking heads from her, the twins, the matchmakers, AND the dates, and it doesn't seem she'll have much screen time. Which, ultimately, might save this s**it-show.

Anonymous said...

I just watched the clip. How incredibly boring! Not only that ( no shock) Kate showed zero enthusiasm, personality, warmth, etc.Even if she wasn’t attracted to the man and is using this show as a ploy to get her face back on tv. A normal person would have made the pizza making experience seem fun, at minimum for their fans watching. I bad for these fans who are literally jumping with excitement with the thought of Kate getting a date.Yet it’s always the same old, same old with their queen.
I won’t be watching!

Another blind item seems to be about Kate. Supposedly, she's back with an ex boyfriend while doing this dating show. The title with silly goose is probably a play on gosling(gosselin), young goose. Sometimes BIs have clues.

FYI said...

In the interview with Jenny McCarthy, Kate refers to these current shows as "the first season". Does she really think there will be a second one?

OMG could she get any more boring and bitchy? He "exhausted" her. PS I'll take him if she doesn't want him he seems nice.

Wowser said...

Omg. Just listened to her with Jenny McCarthy. First of all, what a bullshit interview. Every time she says “like” or “awn”, i want to punch her. She still says she does everything for her kids but no questions about Collin. She slipped and referred to these dating episodes as a “first season” so basically clarified this is about $$ and getting her fat mug on tv. There’s almost too much to cover about everything that was wrong in that interview. I seriously cannot stand her

NJGal51 said...

I just watched the Jenny McCarthy clip (well fast forwarded through most) and at the end she’s still spewing “the kids want to film”, “filming is our normal”, “the crew are family”, yadda, yadda, yadda. The twins don’t really date because they are both so academically driven, more so, don’t you know, than most of their classmates. She doesn’t keep anyone from visiting Jon but let’s them make up their own minds. No mention of two of them living with Jon, but again, I used fast forward because she’s, like, you know, boring.

FYI said...

Another clip from the show. This one shows the guy who was in the original promo picture for the show. The one we all thought was too young for her. Kate is having to deal with beetles landing on her and her table. I'm surprised she didn't jump up and run away.

Kate Plus Date: Kate Gosselin Admits She's 'Avoided Everything That Involves Feeling Vulnerable'

It’s been nearly a decade since Kate Gosselin‘s divorce was finalized — and she’s finally ready to start dating again.

“I don’t know if it was conscious or subconscious. The feeling of going on dates, if you put it in one word, is vulnerable, and I’ve avoided everything that involves feeling vulnerable. And I now realize that one of those things was dating,” Kate, 44, says in PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek of Kate Plus Date, which premieres Monday on TLC.

“Going forward, I’ve learned a lot about myself. I’ve changed, I’ve adapted and I’ve grown up a lot. I’ve become much more self-aware. And almost 10 years later, my kids are all but grown up. So, I’m dating again — finally,” she says.

In December 2009, after 10 years of marriage, Kate and ex-husband Jon Gosselin’s relationship legally came to an end.

Since then, Kate has been focused on raising their eight children:twins Mady and Cara, both 18, and 15-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis, Hannah and Leah.

But now, she’s dedicating time to focusing on her own happiness.

With the help of professional matchmakers, Kate says, “I’ll be going on dates with 10 guys and ultimately I will choose two to go on second dates with.”

Also supporting her in the process are Mady and Cara, who are excited about the potential of their mother finding a life partner.

“Mr. Right has not, you know, ding dong rung my doorbell. To me it’s like okay, well in natural life I’m not going to meet someone. I’m not doing the internet dating thing — that scares the living daylights out of me,” Kate says in the clip. “It’s been so long since I’ve had a companion. That’s such a foreign concept to me. Before I decide to grow old alone, I should probably give it a pretty decent shot of looking around for someone.”

“My kids are encouraged. They’re excited,” she shares.

And while Mady admits she “never thought she’d be someone that would like go out on dates like on TV,” she only wants what’s best for her mom.

“We want her to be happy, all of us do,” says Mady. “If she’s happy, we’re happy.”

Kate Plus Date airs Mondays (10 p.m. ET) on TLC.

So the twins don't date because they're so academically driven, but they DO have time to film Mommie Dearest's TV show? I don't care if they appear onscreen for only 5 minutes tonight. Those couch interviews take up hours and hours.
Hair and maekup, lighting the room, miking the talent -- all of that before the director even says "action." Sure, Mady looks like she's enthralled to stay in the public eye, but Cara does NOT. And a good mother would respect that and leave her out of it.

The fans who will actually be watching this disaster are likely the same people who thought she was such a wonderful mother because she took the kids on so many vacations. They are so clueless they actually believe it was she who paid for all their travels not TLC.

This one has a video clip of her "date" with the younger looking guy from the photos. I haven't watched the clip, though. Just reading about her histrionics is enough. By the way, I, like, think she's, like, trying to talk like Mady, because, like, she thinks it's, like, cute.

Kate Gosselin's Date With a Dancer Gets Pretty Awkward All Thanks to...Beetles?

Kate Gosselin is going on dates—with a camera crew. What could go wrong?
In the preview of the Kate Plus Datepremiere episode, Kate is on a date with Todd, a former astrophysics student turned dancer (when he reveals that change in careers, Kate can't hide her shock), and they're dining al fresco. With outdoor dining comes bugs. Lots of bugs. And threats of bugs.

Watch as Kate spots the beetle and emits several high-pitched sounds while it's taken care of. This type of reaction to a bug is nothing new, Mady and Cara Gosselin are quick to point out.

"I think she needs a spider-squasher husband. Like, if his profession was, like, exterminator," Mady says in the clip.

And the bugs keep coming. And the leaves. And the acorns. And the wind.

"It became this whole, like, comedy of errors. Just the bugs, beetles, the leaf that hit me smack between my eyes, the acorns that were falling on the tin roof," Kate says in a confessional.

Back on the date, the nature assault continues to disrupt any possible connection.

"There is these times where I'm not realizing as time goes on, that the kids have their own lives," she says. "Oh my gosh!"

"You will survive this. I promise," Todd says.

"It's not even a struggle, because that's not even the baggage of my life, it's just an observation," Kate says.

"No, I mean this date. Not, like, the situation you're in," Todd says.

See how it all plays out in the clip above.

Kate Plus Date airs Mondays, 10 p.m. on TLC.

Hmmm, they look a little cozy holding the umbrella together. I guess we know what the blind item was about. Still nothing from TFW on social media about a live twitter party tonight. Maybe she’s too busy with purse boy to be bothered.

Former Lurker said...

Thanks for the info to those who suffered through watching some of the Jenny McCarthy podcast.

I posted the latest Radar article, which has a photo of TFW and Skeeve holding an umbrella in NYC today. I can't find my comment, but it will probably show up later.

Anonymous said...

It was torture watching that interview with Jenny. Kate kept talking about filming and letting her kids "run in and out of frame" STILL. She has not moved on at all. She and the "kids want to film a lot more". And she said it's so difficult with sons....showing them how to shave, tie a tie. They HAVE A LOVING FATHER Kate. What a crap interview. She seemed to be a caricature of a person holding desperately onto the past because she has nothing else.

ncgirl said...

Thanks for the recaps of the Jenny McCarthy show. I don't know why they just don't replay old interviews since she said the same things. She must've been thrilled to be reunited with Skeeve. I'm sure she didn't care about the rain. It could've been a monsoon as long as she got her precious NYC press tour. What I'm dying to know is did they have fish in paper?

NJGal51 said...

Well apparently beetle guy is in “the business” (dancer) so I guess we know why he answered the casting call....maybe looking for his big break - or at least 15 minutes.

Jamesvader1194 said...

Im repeating the same question people keep asking but why is steve even around anymore?The woman hasn't had a TV show in quite a while and apart from a couple of vocal haters,who would really care about Kate anymore?

I will not be watching tonight. Not a chance. The extended family spent last weekend staging an intervention with the family narcissist who has lied, stolen, and manipulated hundreds of thousands of dollars out of all of us (including DH and me, and we are now putting her son through college since she spent his college fund--set up for him by family). She cried, whined, yelled, made accusations, blamed all of her problems on everyone else, and then stomped out. Today she blocked us all on Facebook, which made me laugh. I think I we were supposed to be hurt, but whatever. I have had all the narcissistic, bitchy, self-absorbed, greedy walking personality disorders I can handle for now, thank you very much. It's exhausting.

SaraMRN2010 said...

IN the Radar pictures, she definitely looks like she has put on some pounds. Somebody should coach her on all her "likes" too. That is the first thing you learn in public speaking. And since she claims to have the gift of gab she should know that.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

SaraMRN2010 (#42), hah, I was just going to post the same thing! She liked to pretend she was part of some educational documentary, but she let it slip once in a while that she was aware of the cameras, like, every minute. Like when she barked at the crew that they should stop playing making a TV show and help her.

NBA Pregame show is on. No Bachelorette tonight because of the game, it will be on tomorrow instead. both are on ABC. Golden State Warriors vs. Toronto Raptors, they are playing in Toronto and WOW! the Raptor fans are WILD!
game 1 Warriors won
game 2 Raptors won
game 3 Raptors won
game 4 Raptors won
Best of 7 series, if the Raptors win tonight they are the 2019 NBA Champions! But wait! Kevin Durant is back from injury! If the Warriors win there will be another game, and they would have to win the next two games in order to win the championship. The 4 commentators are 3-1 predicting Raptors win. Stay tuned! If Raptors win, Michelle commentator says "the party in the rain will go on for days". Outside the arena, there is a public square "Jurassic Park" with an outdoor jumbotron, and yes there has been a crowd there outside all day!
This is an educational series too! I might remember all the words to "O Canada" by the end of the series!

Exactly what I was thinking.

More importantly, by speaking about a second season, moron Khate just gave it away! Duh, if she actually found a partner, she wouldn't be talking about a second season!

How can she be so stupid! She wants people to watch all six episodes to see if it ends in her finding "love". Well, if she were successful, there would be no talk of a second season of Fake Date with Khate!

There you go, sheeple. Save your time and skip this fiasco. Khate does not find love. Unless we're talking about her love of money and attention (can't even say "fame" anymore. She's so z-list).

Jolie Jacquelyn, I'm very impressed with the Raptors. Both as a fantastic talented team, and as a great example of good sportsmanship. specially when Kevin Durant had to leave the game because of his right calf injury. Some of thr crowd started cheering as Durant was assisted to limp off the floor. The Raptors players waved the crowd down from cheering, got them to applaud Durant instead. Nobody wants to see a great competitor like him have to leave the game with an injury.

I just pray Jon sticks to his guns and does not allow the tups to film anymore. Let the woman go it alone from now on. She is not a perky teenager like she would like to believe. She is in her mid forties and looks every bit her age. Not saying that as a bad thing, it's just a fact. She is no longer the struggling single mother of 8 as two of her kids have not lived with her for about 3 years and 2 more are leaving. The mother of the year joke got blown out of the water by her treatment of C and H. I actually have more pity for the kids at home. H and C have access to a variety of different people and experiences. C has someone to show him how to shave and tie a tie. H has a relationship with her father. It's criminal what she has done to her children.

And yet, you don't need to LEAVE YOUR KIDS to date in real life! Good Lord! At most they'll be with a babysitter for a few hours, that's it. Of course this is a production, so she has to leave town for days on end and love her kids from afar.

I hope the ratings for this show are embarrassing for her and for TLC. To anyone watching, is it as awful as we thought it would be?

FlimsyFlamsy (43)
She's now sending texts to everyone in the family and accusing them of being mean. She now sees herself as a victim. She's just a poor struggling single mother trying to make a good life for her kids and we shouldn't judge her choices, blah, blah, blah. Where have we heard that kind of whining before?

I'm talking about this as if this is real, which is just absurd of me, but how on earth would you expect to maintain a relationship with some guy who lives in Charlotte or NYC or LA while you're supposed to be raising 15 year olds? It's so absurd it's laughable. Does anyone mention the elephant in the room if this even DID work out, what it would look like? Wouldn't a good man be seriously interested before the first date in how this would realistically work, and concerned and guilty that if you hit it off and want to see each other again, your partner having to spend time so much time away from their kids just to have a relationship with you?

Of course the application made it clear this was only ONE DATE, lol, so maybe they didn't think about that at all.

Of course. But it's not HER money she's wasting, she's allowed to tap the kids' funds for their "health, education and welfare." And you can bet that she files this away under "welfare." At some point, the money will rise to the top of this family's story. I just hope someone (Dateline?) is still covering her then.

"Many of us longtime supporters have gone through a lot in the last year without your support! Why on gods green earth would we support you @kateplusmy8?"

&&&

While it's sad that any human being would rely on a celebrity for their emotional support and fulfillment, many of them obviously did and do. Anyone could see this, including Kate. Kate didn't draw boundaries. She encouraged it, and apparently even befriended friends offline like Brownie. That's okay, but if you're going to do that, you sure as heck better make sure you're willing to maintain it. Instead she just dropped them like pieces of trash to be discarded. This was very hurtful to some of them, and many of them left the flock over it. For her to come back all this time later as if none of this ever happened is both brazen and callous.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

And cry me a river about having to help the boys with shaving and tying ties. You know who gets to feel sad about that? WIDOWS. She creates obstacles, and then asks us to feel sorry for her about them. No dice, Schmoops.

Oh, and for the record, I don't believe for a second that she has had to teach the boys to shave or tie ties, or that she invests much interest in them in general. We know she complained, on camera, that their man cave "smells like boy." I have a hunch A and J could have a method lab down there and TFW would never know.

That's was my thought too, no way does she help them with that stuff. Also kids today have youtube. They're not helpless. And peers. And their father, or did he die?

Also are we supposed to believe that a woman can't help a boy tie a tie, or a man can't braid a girl's hair? I thought we were a progressive society that shunned stereotypes. She's so old fashioned and rigid to her stereotypes. You truly can't take the rural PA out of this girl.

I don't believe that they don't date, they just don't want to talk about it, or the boys don't want them to talk, which is fine. They probably conferred that the party line would be academically driven. Eye roll.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I was thinking more about TFW bemoaning having to teach her sons to tie ties and to shave, and it brought home once again how she sees her children as an inconvenience. Her boys especially seem to be an annoyance. I have a friend whose 7-year-old boy died in an accident 2 years ago, and I bet he and his wife would give the world to have the opportunity to teach their son anything again.

My first reaction was she doesn't look well. No color, acne, did not look fit. Dead eyes. She got very defensive when the lady called her out on the rings. I am surprised she wasn't making goo-goo eyes at Steve on the sidelines as she has before on a "date." The show is a scam. It took her 10 years to get the show and now it just seems too late
Her heart is not in it. I will say as I have always thought that she does have a bit of comedic flair. I think she missed her calling. Gimme Gimme. Forgot how to get my name back.

I'd odd. If true, they will get to college and find themselves the only one without their high school boyfriend at home. (Everyone breaks up with the high school boyfriend by Christmas, but has a new one they met on campus by year end finals). So if they don't have a boyfriend, the question is why. One hopes it's not because they act like their mother at school and turn off even the least discerning of boys.

Still, my money is on they do have boyfriends or at least casual friends who are boys they may be affectionate with. So just be honest. Like every other kid our age we are dating but prefer not to talk about it on camera.

I couldn't bring myself to watch this farce as the commercial for it was annoying enough. She is a mother of 6, birth mother of 8. She still pretends she's this harried single mother of 8 littles. She overlooks the fact that two kids don't live with her, one of who she abandoned. She ignores the fact that said two children live happily with Jon despite all she's done to shut him out of the kids' lives. Why TLC still bothers with this horrid woman is beyond me.

Mady is TFW II. In the commercial she is disrespectful, a snotty know-it-all type who is not entertaining but incredibly annoying. Poor Cara seems to only be on the show because she has to.

I didn’t watch but judging by the comments about Mady being her normal, eye rolling, snotty self, she’s going to have a rude awaking once she gets to college. She’s going to find out that most people don’t give two focks about the fact that she’s “Mady Gosselin”. She’s been sheltered up until now in that if her mother didn’t want their picture out there two senior class pictures were taken. If she continues to have the same attitude that she’s displaying now she better hope to pledge that stereotypical mean girl sorority or she won’t have many friends. Also, someone needs to tell her that short waisted girls shouldn’t wear high waisted pants. It cuts us in half in an unflattering way.

Why do I suspect this overnight NYC jaunt with the twins is designed to make the 4 left at home jealous, and possibly coerce them into filming again?

Dmasy (#111), if TFW ever bothered to participate in any community functions like you do in the freakin' decade she's been divorced, she might have met some interesting, civic-minded single men. But that's not how she rolls.

Did TFW have a little too much Botox? In the pictures from the past couple of days her face just looks off somehow. I saw her IG post this morning and thought it was funny that she didn’t mention the name of the show nor did she give a time. She also didn’t give any info on other jaunts she might be doing today. TLC sure did wait until the last minute to promote this.

Kate just confirmed on Today that this whole dating show was all her idea. She keeps saying things in her interviews like "this (dating process) has changed me" etc.etc. But TLC no one cares anymore about this middle aged person from rural Berks County. What is of interest is why you (TLC) keep giving her tv shows. WHY? You know she abandoned her son, didn't even show up at his custody hearing. Why are you encouraging her arrogance,sense of entitlement by helping her get rich by putting her on a tv show??

If she thinks Syracuse is some snooty private school that will treat her like all that, she is very mistaken. They absolutely won't care, there will be plenty of kids there who have accomplished much more things and more meaningful things. She will not make friends fast if she think she can go in there like thee real Mady Gosselin and expect any fawning.

By the way the dorms at Syracuse are TEENY TINY. Wonder what she will think of that downgrade.

***********
You're not kidding. I hope Mady is open to downsizing because those rooms are probably half the size of her room at home. I mentioned that my friend's daughter goes to Syracuse, and her room is very narrow and tiny. A twin bed on one side, a desk and a dresser against the opposite wall, and a narrow walkway down the middle. She laughed about the fact that she has to be careful pushing her chair back from the desk because she keeps running into the bed behind her. Her little mini fridge is on top of the dresser because there's nowhere else to put it. But--the students are there for the academics. Nobody is going to care about Mady's "fame" and they won't have the time of day for her nastiness. Kate claimed Mady is academically driven--well, that's the norm at Syracuse. She won't be special there.

I listened to the Sirius Radio interview and it made me laugh that Kate's complaining that she would like to be doing a lot more filming (and so do the kids!). Yeah, I'm sure she would. She's still dreaming of the days when they filmed 40 episodes a year.

Many dorm rooms are small but those are fire-hazard small. I remember one of the ones my friend stayed in had a divider down the middle that might have even been cinder blocks, which is a good idea in theory because it gives you a little privacy from your roommate. But in practice, it's just taking away all the more space! The dorms were by no means the reason I passed on Syracuse, but I was not unhappy to get a more roomier, "doable" open floor plan dorm at PSU.

I don't know, I see this kid having some trouble adapting to college.

You know I think this is the most honest Kate has ever been? If you're avoiding things that make you feel vulnerable, you are avoiding life itself.

She banished Jon. She would have had to be vulnerable and face up to her shortcomings as a partner to make that work.
She washed her hands of Collin and Hannah. She would have to be vulnerable and face up to her shortcomings as a mother.
Various friends are long gone. She would have to be vulnerable and face up to her shortcomings as a friend.
Family members are gone. She would have to be vulnerable and face up to her shortcomings as a sister, daughter, in-law, cousin.
She has no partner. She would have to be vulnerable and face up to her shortcomings as a partner.
She doesn't work a real job. She would have to be vulnerable and face up to her shortcomings as a "career" reality star.

Kate, get help. Because you're squeaking by now, but you can't squeak by forever with this mindset.

I watched the second half of the show. My thoughts: the first guy was very exuberant. He reminded me of Chris on Parks & Recreation! Cara never said a word and looked very very uncomfortable the whole time Maddy talked. I hope the twins are getting some money for this. It was obvious Cara did not want to be there. As for Kate, she looked nice, which is all I can compliment her on. It was obvious she doesn't care about other people. Her noises and mugging for the camera just reinforce that she wants to be the center of attention. She made minimal effort to get to know the guy or to be pleasant. It was obvious the coach did not go out and find these guys. Everyone knows that there was a casting call for them! I found the episode disjointed too: every few minutes they interrupted the flow of the date with the commentary by 1) the coach, 2) Kate, 3) the guy, and 4) Maddie! Plus the coach interrupted the actual date!! Bad format, obviously fake, painful to watch a middle-aged, desparate narcissist, who has no camera presence, try to stay relevant.

regarding the Today Show interview,
Did anyone catch when she answered about Hannah and Collin she said "I never wanted them to (then she paused and said) I mean, they will all say I never made them choose, I don't think it's healthy." The pause made me wonder if she didn't mean to say just"I never wanted them to" but then regrouped and realized she needed to backtrack.

Also, Cara made the statement they were going to different colleges NEXT year, not in the fall but Next year. I know a lot of kids take a year off between high school and college and I hope it is for them to enjoy it and not be at Kate's beck and call for filming this fake dating show.

On Yahoo (https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/kate-gosselin-says-she-feels-safer-dating-in-front-of-the-camera-193110952.html):

"The Gosselins had a messy split, mostly because of their disagreements over custody of the children. However, Kate confirmed on Today that Hannah and Collin are living with their father, while their siblings live with her. The camera caught Mady and Cara smiling and giggling as they watched their mom’s interview from nearby.

“I am a huge supporter of, you know, the kids have to have a voice,” Gosselin said. “I never wanted them to… they will all say, I never made them choose, I don’t think it’s healthy. Whatever works for each of them works for me, and their happiness is the most important thing to me.”

The kids "have to have a voice"? Is that why you went to court multiple times to try to get Hannah back? And why you DIDN'T go to court to try to get Collin back? Bitch, puh-leeze!

http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/showbuzzdailys-top-150-monday-cable-originals-network-finals-6-10-2019.html

For being off the air for almost 2 years, her ratings were less than the ratings for the 3 episodes aired in July 2017.

Viewers for the specials aired in 2017.

7/10/2017 .918 - A Haunting at the Gosselins
7/17/2017 .781 - Kate goes skiing...sort of...
7/24/2017 .801 - Six Teenagers

BTW, the lead in to her show, 90 Day Fiance:Other Way had 1,386M viewers. So almost half of the viewers turned out at 10 pm when Kate's show aired.

I didn't watch it. When I saw they were on the third hour of Today, I kept on flipping the channels.

Layla said...

By comparison, the new 90-Day Fiance show at 9pm got 1.386 million. Kate Plus Date at 10pm got 773,000. About 40% of the audience turned their TVs off when she came on. That strong lead-in did nothing to help her. I predict the ratings will go down from here on out. How low can they go? Oh, the next 5 weeks are going to be fun!

ncgirl said...

Here's an article about the Today show interview. The crew daddies protect her, and they're the same crew from her old show. The twins were in the background. No time or TFW doesn't want to share the attention?

"And so, for me, it’s a crew that I’ve known forever, It’s 99 percent guys. They love me, I love them, and I felt like surrounding myself with them, they’re not gonna put me in a position that’s unsafe or scary.”

"However, Kate confirmed on Today that Hannah and Collin are living with their father, while their siblings live with her. The camera caught Mady and Cara smiling and giggling as they watched their mom’s interview from nearby.

Ah the great what does "next" year or weekend mean! I've always used "next" to mean this upcoming weekend, year, etc., even if apparently that's not quite right. So, I agree, they probably mean "this" school year is "this year" and beginning in August with college is "next" year.

Besides I don't think most colleges accept students this early if they want to take a gap year. That is a more convoluted way to work out your acceptance.

ncgirl (#145), the Roloffs have been averaging about a million and a half viewers per week -- roughly double Schmoopy's ratings. Bwahaha!

You know what completely stuns me? That 3/4 of a million people still watched her crap! I have no idea why anyone would actually choose to watch her do anything!

I've had her number since the fist moment I ever heard her speak. I watched 3 episodes just to make sure I wasn't misreading her. I knew right then that she was the kind of woman who would eat her young.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

"I never made them chose." Says the woman caught on film threatening her young children that if they stayed on a camping trip they were clearly enjoying, they were no longer Gosselins. This is a black-belt manipulator, and I don't believe a word she says.

As far as always putting her kids' needs first, was that her plan when she completely left C's loving father in the dark about his son's whereabouts, when he would surely have moved heaven and earth to help his son rather than having him institutionalized?

ncgirl said...

"That 3/4 of a million people still watched her crap! I have no idea why anyone would actually choose to watch her do anything!"

A person on another site said they didn't believe Kate was an abuser. According to them, there's no physical proof, and Mady would say something about it.

I realize many people haven't followed Kate's story closely. They don't realize Mady could be loyal to her mother or she could be bribed or brainwashed.

The person didn't say they had watched the show.

From Dmasy --

Kate tells lies big enough to leave a bruise.

Question is -- does she believe what she says when she re-writes history? Or, does she just expect the "adoring masses" to accept her fabrications?

I think there are liars who actually believe their own absurd and contradictory statements.

Maybe, somehow she has managed to convince herself despite filmed evidence to the contrary.

Hard-hearted, delusional and un-likable. I could go on ...

Kate Plus Date: 773K viewers. For a debut! Ranked 27th cable show of the night. It can only go down from here. :)

&&&&&&&&&&

Sad but true said... 134

TLC lost over half a million viewers from their 9 p.m. programming, which was "90 Day Fiance: The Other Way." Share dropped from 0.40 to 0.22. She was also beat out by almost 220K viewers by Teen Mom on MTV.

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

Ha! Even worse than I thought the premiere would do, given the expected curiosity factor.

Sad but true, thanks for posting the ratings.

Layla (#142), funny that the tups' birthday episode was called "Six Teenagers" when there were only 5. C was sent away from home at age 11, never to return.

Sad but true said...

Her IG numbers tell the real story. 377K "followers" and only 15K or so likes on this morning's Today Show photo? Less than 165 comments. And the four photos posted last night from an hour before and then during the show? You have only to look at some of the real IG movers and shakers to understand exactly how pathetic her fan-base is. To the extent that it actually exists, it is far far less than 377K.

For being off the air for almost 2 years, her ratings were less than the ratings for the 3 episodes aired in July 2017.

Wow, thanks for posting that into. You would think that after two years of being off TV that there would at least be the same level of interest that there was for that strange three episode "season" that aired during the summer of 2017.

It's good to see that the Fake Date with Khate ratings for the premiere episode were even worse than they were for that mediocre season.

I wonder what our resident troll has to say now about TLC's wise business decision to go with this show because Khate can deliver ratings.

Former Lurker said...

It's so strange that she did the Today show this morning, AFTER the premiere episode. That makes no sense!

Giff said...

The person on the other site who refuses to believer she abuses her kids, obviously does not know the background. She admitted being unable to control her temper around her then 2 year old son. As for the theory Mady would surely speak up if anyone were being harmed...umm, no. She was a child herself and felt anger and resentment towards the tups from day one. How ridiculous to think the child most like her mother would throw away her privileged lifestyle. Don't get me wrong, Mady is a victim too, but being outspoken does not equal being brave and using that voice to speak out. I can see H possibly trying to do that, but Mady....no.

'I don't want to be single forever': Kate Gosselin dishes on her 'awkward' search for love on her new reality show Kate Plus Date

The reality star is back in front of the camera, but this time the focus isn't on her brood of eight children.

Kate Gosselin, 44, has kicked off her newest TLC reality show, Kate Plus Date with a stop at the Today Show on Tuesday.

The mother of eight's new attempt at finding love comes after a decade of being single following her divorce from John Gosselin, 42, in 2009.

During the third hour of Today Kate gave some insight into how she ended back on TV, searching for love.

The former Kate Plus Eight star shared that it was her kids who encouraged her to get back in the dating game.

'I was busy with my kids. There was no energy, there was no time,' she said of why she remained single for a decade.

Kate Plus Date premiered on TLC Monday night.

With her oldest children, twins Maddy and Cara, off to college this fall and her youngest, sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis, Hannah, and Leah, turning 15 and in high school, she felt now was the time to try and find love.

'It occurred to me that soon it's going to be me and the dogs rattling around the house.'

'If I don't want to be single forever, I've got to try.'

What the mom found through the show was not only a series of dates but an exploration into society that the star could only describe as 'awkward.'

The TV personality shared how she hopes to be an encouraging figure for other single parents to put excuses to the side and try or risk being alone.

She also said that dating on TV was her idea and having her almost all-male crew around while on dates made her feel safer.

'It's a crew I've known forever... They love me, I love them and I felt like surrounding myself with them, they're not going to put me in a situation that is unsafe or scary.'


Her twins not only were at the Today show to support their mom, but take on the role of helping her on her quest to find an eligible man.

Kate shared a throwback photo to Instagram that was taken during her outings on dates. She captioned the Snapchat selfie 'Love letters to my kids (in the form of snap chats) while away, going on dates.'

In the shows first episode Cara and Maddy help Kate fill out questionnaires from matchmakers and give her their honest feedback.

'I never thought she would go out on dates on TV. It's going to be interesting,' Maddy said.

Old poster said...

The twins saying ‘next year’ means in the Fall.
Online student directories are there for all to see - M ‘s Major is in Arts and Sciences.
As far as dorms go, they come in all different sizes- some schools have on campus apts. if she’s in a dorm, she could apply for a private room. There are all sorts of options out there.
If the college students have opinions of either girl, I’d guess it won’t be a positive one.
If Kate believes these girls will be coming home on weekends, she is sorely mistaken. College courses are a wee bit different from high school, they will be studying A LOT.

Um, I doubt that they love you. They’re being paid to film you. Your former publicist just came out and basically said you’re a biotch. A paycheck is a paycheck and the crew goes where they’re assigned if they want to continue to work in the business.

capecodmama said...

Isn’t it interesting that Jenny Masche from WE tv’s Raising Sextuplets managed to dump her abusive husband’s ass and get remarried to a former boyfriend who has two sons and they had a baby themselves. She had tups and it didn’t scare him off. They seem to be doing fine. Yet Kate has to go on tv to find a date. Bitch please.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

NJGal51 (#165), and yet again TFW is a piss-poor role model for her kids. Will they expect everyone they work with, or for, to love them? Of course it's wonderful if you can develop friendships at work. But the regular workaday world does not offer "crew daddies," nor should it.

Anonymous said...

Even with the strong lead-in show, she couldn't do better than 27th cable show of Monday night. Being the season premiere I'm sure TLC were hoping for a larger audience than the 773,000 reported. As summed approaches I can't see the numbers improving.

bookworm said...

For anyone interested, here is a link to the full episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/ySN4EIatFYo

I watched the Jenny McCarthy interview, and what stood out to me was how Kate talked about filming in the present tense, as though they're still going strong with Kate+8. I suppose she could have been referring to this dating farce, but it was all about how she can work at home with the kids and how well it works for all of them - which doesn't apply to the new show. It definitely seemed like she was trying to give the impression that Kate+8 is still in full swing.

Former Lurker said...

Last night, I read some of the tweets and just now I read through the comments on the four IG posts that she did while the show was on. She only had about 200 people posting comments. Most of them are delusional and actually think this show is real, as they wish her luck in finding love, she deserves it, etc. So dumb.

From what I can figure out, the first "date" was the pizza making date with a guy named Steve and no one seemed to like him. Did they also go on a boat? Where was this fake "date"?

It seems the second date was with Todd, the cute guy in the promo pic and the one in the video clip where TFW freaked out over the bugs while they were dining outside. Just curious, does anyone know where that date was?

Also, according to the IG comments, people liked the Todd guy but TFW thinks he's too short. Again, I can't believe that a couple hundred people on her IG think this is actually real. The guy said he's a dancer or actor, so, yeah, he answered a casting call for a Fake Date show.

TLC has the first episode posted on their YouTube channel. They must be desperate for views.

In the comments on one of her IG posts last night, she clearly hinted that Todd will be one of the (un)lucky guys chosen to go on a second Fake Date:

------------------
I couldn't find any photos on google of a dress like it but every time I look at it I think of paper doilies. Maybe they glued paper doilies onto the previous blue dress to cover her bits.

https://www.amazon.com/Assorted-White-Paper-Doilies-32ct/dp/B0016KZDDW

Dress is tacky/ugly looking to me no matter how much it cost. She does like picking those with the different color on sides to make herself look thinner. Sorry chick. Your legs are still getting hefty.

OK I'm super behind but when and how did we find out that Mady is going to Syracuse University, and do we know where Cara is going?

I believe people who follow Mady and Cara on instagram saw something? Cara may be going to Fordham in NY? Just trying to remember what I read on previous post without going back thru it all.

'It's a crew I've known forever... They love me, I love them and I felt like surrounding myself with them, they're not going to put me in a situation that is unsafe or scary.'

Wasn't it proven, back when they were "on hiatus" b/t 08/2011 and 04/2014, that only ONE of the original crew members returned? Namely, the sound guy (Mike?)? Why does she constantly harp on this fiction, which is so easily disproven on sites like IMDB? Is she really just ignorant about the availability of this information? Does having a crew that "loves her" somehow make it better that she's using her kids to fund her lifestyle and feed her narcissism? And HOW, exactly, does that make pimping their childhoods any better? Are the "crew daddies" teaching her 2 boys to shave and tie ties? Or has that lesson been covered by good ol' Skeve?

Bueller? Things that make you go hmmmm. Unfortunately, it appears she will NEVER sit down with an interviewer who's actually done her/his homework. Lucky, lucky Kate.

PatK said...

"However, Kate confirmed on Today that Hannah and Collin are living with their father, while their siblings live with her.”

Oh, Lordy Be….was she actually asked a hardball question???!!??



“I am a huge supporter of, you know, the kids have to have a voice,” Gosselin said. “I never wanted them to… they will all say, I never made them choose, I don’t think it’s healthy. Whatever works for each of them works for me, and their happiness is the most important thing to me.”

Excuse me while I go barf somewhere.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

I would guess a significant portion of that 3/4 of a million viewers was watching in hopes of seeing the tups "all grown up." Instead they got one brash twin, one mute twin, and a whole lotta Katie Irene.

T, it came up in the comments a couple of posts back (on the May 14th post).

On the second page of comments, Mady and Cara's high school graduation came up. It's on YouTube. Then, there were some posts about where they're going to college.

Read from post #135 on. But, specifically #135, and #151 and #153.

If anyone else couldn't bring themselves to listen to K8 lying all over radio, this site has a pretty complete transcript of the Sirius XM interview:

Unfortunately, she doesn't address anything about Collin, or about the fact that she wrangled Hannah in court for months before being shut down.

Again: When will interviewers start asking questions based on the ACTUAL record? Court cases certainly provide a good start.

Sounds like TFMJG plus Fake Date is just as boring as TFMJG is alone.

NJGal51 said...

So (allegedly) LCDS had to take two senior group pictures....one with the Gosselin twins (for students and family only) and one without them for publication. Sasha Obama just graduated from HS and her parents, who, dare I say it, are a little more well known than TFW, didn’t seem to have a problem with the Sidwell Friends School posting a class picture on their FB page that included Sasha Obama. TFW really does have delusions of grandeur. One has to hope that the twins are a little more grounded in reality.

Leaving a kid out of the picture makes no sense, too. How does it protect them? Everyone knows what school they go to. And they are graduating, they don't go there anymore, so it matters even LESS.

The Obamas are good parents, always have been. Even for argument's sake it's somehow a small danger to let their kid be in the pics, they recognize that the greater good of not ostracizing them or making them feel special is best served by letting them just be normal, which includes pics everybody else is in.

Prince William is the same with his kids. You'll go to school with everybody else, we'll drop you off there like all the other parents do, and you're not going to be told you're a future king because that's just not information that is helpful to you at the moment.

Completely agree. It's not normal or healthy to encourage that sort of relationship with coworkers. Sure there will be the odd coworker now and again that you might become really close with or perhaps even become romantically involved, but in that case, you should be fostering that relationship off site, and not relying on work alone to be the only venue where you're building something.

1. they don't love you back, I promise you that, and they'll move on to some other job in a heartbeat and never talk to you again, so if you "love" them, you'll be devastated instead of just a little sad to see a good coworker go and then you move on
2. it's dangerous, because the workplace requires professional boundaries and if you violate them, you could be in a lot of trouble and even lose your job. Teaching kids to develop "love" at work is a bad, bad idea.
3. Expending energy on love with coworkers who have their own families and friends they spend their energy on, takes away from where you should focus your love and emotional energy, YOUR family and friends.

How did she do that?! said...

How do you suppose kart was granted that demand 'you have to do two photos'..... how in the world would the school have allowed that, caved to that asinine demand? Do you suppose kart got a court order, threatened a lawsuit, got a restraining order?

Just how in the effing hell does she get away with this crap and why in the world would the school comply?


Oh, and I watched a bit of the rerun tonight. Boy, oh boy Cara is just STICKING IT TO HER GESTATIONAL CARRIER. She didn't say a word. She may have been coerced to be on the show, but ya can't make her talk! Take that, "mommy"


LOL! I doubt she will be coming home from college, ever!

Former Lurker said...

I am totally perplexed about this two photo situation. Why in the world would it matter to her? Why wouldn't she be want Mady and Cara in the class graduation photo. And, why in the world would the school capitulate to her unreasonable demands?

TFW, please explain why your 18 year old twin daughters can't be in their freaking high school graduation photo BUT you can parade them around on your "press tour" to pimp your ridiculous Fake Date show.

She is one messed up woman and this is one seriously messed up family.

I think that she wore that blue doily dress when they were on vacation somewhere and Mady took pictures of her posing with a cupcake at an outside table.

"I am totally perplexed about this two photo situation. Why in the world would it matter to her?"
___________________________

If I remember correctly, this is the way Kate has always had the kids pictures taken. Only Kate get a complete class photo. The other kids receive a class photo with no Gosselin children included.

It was to prevent other parents or children from posting pictures of her moneymakers. And no photos of her children were allowed during school or at school events at all.

Mim2two said...

Mady and Cara are probably forced by TFW by threatening college $ to do as she wants.

JR (#188), where did you get that information?

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Why did she point out that the crew is all guys? Why does that matter?

Also makes the production company look bad for not hiring more women in an era when everyone is pushing the industry to be more inclusive. (Will never happen anyway as you’re never going to get women interested in all the manual labor required of most people on set)
