    Re: About Jon and Kate Plus Or Minus Eight

    I remember when Kate was guest hosting The View one time, just after the incident where the police were called and she was ordered/escorted/whatever off their property.
    It was Jon's turn to have the children and he was going somewhere and planned to leave them with a babysitter who happened to be some woman he was having a fling with.
    Kate went to the house and asked him if she could stay with the children as he wasn't going to be there and she didn't know the woman he was leaving them with.
    He said 'no', unreasonable, imo.

    Now, Kate is doing the same thing by not allowing him to look after the children while she is on the other side of the country.
    It's all so incredibly petty.

    I never thought I'd be saying/wishing this, but where is Gloria Allred and Dr. Phil in all of this? They seem to butt in on every other high profile divorce/infidelity/custodial interference/drug addiction/etc to the stars. They went after octomom and I think Gloria Allred tried having the CA courts intervene on the octuplets behalf (not her other 6 kids) to make sure any money made off of them went into a trust and couldn't be spent by their mom. Dr. Phil had octomom, Gloria Allred, and that team of free nannies on to try and force her to take them on.

    Yet I haven't heard a peep out of either side regarding the Jon/Kate fiasco. Is it so ridiculous and too much of a mess even they won't touch it? I know Kate is estranged from her family, but didn't her brother and sister in law speak out after the divorce (more piggy backing off the kids, I'm sure they got paid $$$ for their interviews) and say how concerned they were for the kids? Where are they now? It just bothers me that everyone involved and in the media is so wrapped up in Jon & Kate and what they're doing to each other that they're completely ignoring the kids and the affect it's having on them. All this money Kate is raking in as a result of the show, her new shows, DWTS, her book tour and previous book tours/sales, interviews, co-hosting gigs. I think we're going to see 8 tell all books in the future from the kids who legitimately have a reason to try and sell them as they tell their story of how they no longer talk to their parents and were left broke, depressed, and bitter. Meanwhile mom is living it up in the mansion she got as a result of them with her bodyguard, maids, groundskeepers, and getting her $100K hair extensions and mannies/peddies while driving an imported sports car and dad is still warring with her over something petty.

    It's sad in any case when the parents use their kids, especially in a public situation, to try and get at the other. There's no reason why Jon shouldn't be allowed more time with the children, especially if Kate is going to be off doing her own thing.

    Somewhere I read that Kevin and Jodie did NOT get any money for speaking out. They were trying to help the kids.

    This is an exerpt to her new "book" if it is all supposed to be how much she loves her kids, the part I read all but glorified her and the rest whined away and offered excuses about her. She makes me SICK

    So, a dog licked her leg in a carpark? Riveting.

    I see no need for this latest book, particularly not in the form it's taking.
    If she wants to write about the divorce from her side, fine, but to do so by a series of very personal letters to her children really does disgust me.
    She's selling their privacy and not even in an entertaining way.
    I hope people don't buy the book, but suspect she'll sell hundreds of thousands of copies and everyone will know how the children reacted to the divorce.

    Fluff, it made me very angry that this IT thinks she has it so much more than the rest of us. I am a teacher and I suffer from Crohn's. I have extra clothes in my vehicle AND my classroom. I have the secretary on speed dial on my cell phone incase I can't make it to the RR fast enough even tho my classroom is the closest to it.

    So she had 8 kids Big WHOOP I have "155" every day. Top that~ I hate that woman/bitch with a passion. I also feel very sorry for those children!

    Re: About Jon and Kate Plus Or Minus Eight

    Tapper, I wanted to say, "Bless your heart." I knew that you were not a KHate fan (neither am I,) and this helps me to understand why. I am sorry for the health issues you have to deal with daily and that you go on to make a difference in the lives of kids. It is hard to see some fame hound complain about their drama - much of which is self-inflicted - when you deal with so much more real issues.
    Myself, I raised 5 children who were all born within 7 years. I know that isn't the same as 8, including 6 at once, but I had NO HELP, unlike KHate. My husband worked about 100 hours a week and in those days men did less to help with the children anyway. Mani's and pedi's were not in my vocabulary nor were spas, expensive vacations, plastic surgery, household help or any of the things she enjoys. We made do with what we had.
    Plus, I feel that at times she exaggerates. For example, it puzzles me, reading the excerpt from her book, how one family of 10, with most of them young, can, according to her, go through two dozen eggs in one meal. That's three more children than I have and we never came close to even a dozen at a meal - until now on Christmas morning with everyone married and there with the grandkids - then we get to two dozen! And with only three fewer kids, I made do with only one washer and dryer, one dishwasher (when I had one) and never thought anything about it. In fact, I had a friend who had 12 children and never had near what KHate feels that she needs.
    My children have grown up to be smart, kind, responsible adults and good parents themselves. (Inspite of not having Crooked Houses or American Girl dolls - the closest they ever came was the paper dolls.)
    But finally, the thing that bugs me most about KHate - and I used to watch the show - is the way she spoke to her husband, children and others. Maddy said it best on the show where she said, "She thinks she's the Queen Bee." What I saw of KHate Gosselin was that she considered herself "above" everyone else. Most especially her ex-husband, but also other family members and all the way down to the fans whom she only tolerates - and without whom she wouldn't have had this gravy train for the past several years.
    Many excuse her rude behavior to Jon by saying, "She had to deal with 9 kids, including Jon." Well, Sugar, you married him. You wanted to have more children with him, and regardless of your take on his behavior, you had no right to yell, nag and publicly humiliate him the way you did. I only wonder how all this would've played out if Jon (who had been the more caring, loving, "present" parent, IMO) hadn't screwed up so royally and acted like an idiot in the end , losing him the public support he would've had more of and causing many people who didn't know more about the situation, to pity "Poor KHate" and totally blame him.
    I so want her off the air - and especially now so I can enjoy DWTS, one of my favorite shows.

    Nanarama, thank you.

    That is another thing I HATE about KHATE Jon did the Majority of the work with the kids. She never got them up until after 8 am then had them take 4 hour naps Then JON did the baths and put them to bed. So what did she do? NOTHING but sit on her ass and bitch about what others would have been GREATFUL to have.

    you know, when Cara and Mady start their periods and the boys do their "puberty thing" she will probably write about that and instead of privacy, the kids will have to hear how much extra laundry the maids (you know khate doesn't do laundry) will do and how she can't resell those clothes because the girls thoughtlessly ruined them.
