Bravo! What are you thinking?
Tried to find it online myself, but could not. Dare I ask what she will be doing on Bravo?
Boycott. Unless, of course, it's Kreider being grilled by Judy Judy. ;)
I heard Andy Cohen announce it on the show, and then verified it on the Bravo site. Can't imagine why they'd have her on other than that she was in the news dipue to Hoffman's book last week. Maybe she's a big Bravo fan? Usually the Watch What Happens guests are able to discuss Bravo shows because they're fans of them.
Sure would like to write her questions for the Plead the Fifth segment. But hiw to consolidate everything into only three questions?
My question would be "Kate! What are you thinking?" That's such a fast paced show, the only words she'll be able to say are "um..." before they go on to the next topic....... Love that show by the way and love Andy Cohen. He makes me LOL!
I love me some Andy Cohen too, gmh. :)
I suspect this show was taped before the doo-doo hit the fan. She's been tweeting about a surprise for a while before the launch.
Quote from "the book": "September 11, 2006 Today is the five year remembrance of the Sept 11 bombings or whatever."
I will give her a nanoinch to pinch on this one.
If her kids aren't gonna be on the show and she wants to um, let's say, um, humiliate herself I say Where's the popkern!
I still don't like the fake though!
P.J., "or whatever"?!? OMG!
Watch What Happens will be live. Once in a great while they replay one but since she's never been on before this one should be live. Andy Cohen's taken jabs at her before so it should be interesting. I'd love to be the bartender for this one.
I'm with you Irene, where's the popkern? We can stir it with wooden spoons while perched on our white plastic thrones.
The " or whatever" was a direct quote from her journals.
That's atrocious about the "whatever," P.J., but I don't have to tell you that, right? Amazing, and not in a good way, that someone could be so cavalier about that incredibly painful event.
I counted the other day she said um 17 times in a short interview! But she thinks she is a great speaker ........."whatever" ........... lol .........
found this TLC related item somewhere http://inagist.com/all/255021869307158528/
WWHL is a very light hearted fun show. How on earth will Kate handle not being able to shed her crocodile tears and her woe is me story that she says in every single interview she has given since the divorce. I hope Andy hits her with some really good questions during the plead the fifth segment.
I'm with you, Terri. He's certainly made fun of her in the past and she was his jackhole one night. It's not like he's ever even remotely pretended to be a fan.
"Kate Gosselin Accused Of Being Cruel To The Family Pets" per radaronline.
Well I have to say this doesnt come as a surprise. You could tell on the show Kate is NO animal person , she likes from afar like a zoo or whatever, but NOT in her home. This so paints her like the piece of work she is. She is just horrible ! Evil to core, just as we all knew from the show.
I'm still reading the book (and half the internet, and just a lot of other not really profitable things)I was reading about AMP - finally learned what that was, which made me wonder again:
Why does no one ever blast Figure 8? We slam Kate & TLC but not them. Why do they get off scot-free and rich?
F8 had enough to pay for the beds and the carpets and the trips on top of what DHC/TLC was paying J&K - plus paying their staff and making a profit, I would expect - so what about them? They were complicit in this (I'm fairly sure that's the word I want) even if they had "moral objections" and they having stopped filming families, and they were Advanced Medical Productions (?) - what is the deal with that? There must be a whole story. Kate is just more tabloid worthy. They are not innocent, but no one attacks them. I don't get it. They must have gotten rich? Yes/No?
I've asked before. I don't remember where. No one really replied that I can recall.
I doubt she will be able to discuss Bravo shows. I've never seen her be able to talk about anything but herself. Talk show host? Never. She'd have to know something other than me, me, me and have some inherent curiosity. Certainly the dating show idea didn't fly, did it? I can't imagine a worse idea. Remember the gag me with a spoon NYC birthday trip with Jaime? Disgusting.
Near the end of my book I talked about that, Pamela. I talked about how they used and took advantage of everyone, even Kate. They were able to take advantage of her by playing into her narcissism. The whole thing hasvalaways been about money. Thus the title of my book.
Thanks for your great comments as always, everyone.
I've read the books, I've watched the shows, I've followed the blogs and articles. I've been disgusted, almost from the very beginning. I wanted, more than anything, for this woman to be brought down. It's been what? 5-6 years? I've felt the pain of a husband being abused by harsh words, terrible treatment and continual denigration by his spouse. I've seen boys being ignored, I've seen tantrums by older children, I've seen favoritism and injustices dealt out by the most narcissistic person I've never met. I've seen the greed, the lies, the inflated ego, the nastiness, the delusional thinking, the meltdowns, the screeching, the fakery.
The book by Robert Hoffman only clarified what I've suspected all along, it just made it so painfully more real. I guess a part of me wanted it to be all misinterpretted or blown out of proportion. Sadly, that is not the case. I do hope the book puts an end to her in the media, even in the tabloids. I hope that very soon, people will say, "Who? Oh, I remember her. Wasn't she that nasty woman who...?"
It is my opinion that if people hadn't felt so strongly about her, she would have faded away by now, but we've kept her relevant. I know I wanted the best for those children and that was the objective of most people, but I've come to the conclusion that I can do nothing to protect them. They are off of tv and I don't believe that will change. America (and other nations) have moved on to the next train wreck. I can only hope and pray that those children will grow up to become happy, healthy adults despite their nightmare childhood. My hope for her is that she'll have some kind of epiphany and spends the rest of her life making it up to those that she's hurt. I'd be shocked if that happened, but that is truly what I wish for her.
Having said all this, I will no longer be commenting on anything to do with this woman. I will watch and observe once in a while, but I sincerely hope there will be nothing to see. It seems to me that the blogs and tabloid articles are getting fewer and fewer comments. Shyster Shack (my name for Coupon Cabin)comments are down to a handful. The articles about her are almost non-existent. It seems a lot of the sheeple have been embarrassed at the truth that has come out and they are hanging their heads in shame. They have abandoned her. She still has a few die-hard nutcases that defend her to the hilt, and they will be cold comfort in the days and years ahead.
This will likely be harder than quitting smoking, but I will not spend one more iota of energy on this subject. Until the children are old enough to speak, this issue is dead to me. I'd rather spend my energy on something positive and, quite frankly, more interesting. I've "met" some wonderful people along the way, and this is the lemonade that came from the lemons we've all been sucking on for years. I appreciate each and every one of you, and wish you all the best.
I totally understand where you're coming from and can appreciate your position, P.J. I very rarely blog anymore. Just when something of interest happens, which is hardly ever anymore. If people expected Hoffman's book to change anything I think they're in for disappointment. Yes, he's provided more details but this is all stuff we who have been paying attention have known for a long time. Thank god the kids are off TV and I agree, her days are over. Can't figure out why she's on Bravo tonight. What a waste of a chair. Thanks for being a part of all this and may you enjoy the extra time you'll have from not wasting anymore on you know who. May positivity shine down on you wherever you are. :)Polly
haven't read the comments yet - still trying to read the darn book! But whipping thru ET in an attempt to get some space on my DVR, I noticed there's going to be a Houston Family reality show called The Houstons -- On Our Own which will premiere on 10/24 on Lifetime.
Three Cheers to Kathryn (sp?) Jackson for not putting Michael's kids thru this crap (unless she did and I missed it. I think she's not thrilled that Paris wants to be an actress, but not stopping her either?)
Really -- if you are Whitney Houston's daughter -- why do this? Did all the money go for drugs? I never did hear the final tally... I would think she'd have enough. I do know that Priscilla didn't think Lisa would have enough and so she made Graceland a tourist trap/holy shrine. But at least Lisa wasn't living there at the time.
wow you are quick tonight!
deleting Friday's ETand guess who was at the beginning (must start it earlier, it's cutting off)ParisAnd guess what they asked her!Yes she's doing something but she can't say what. "Is it a Reality Show?" (paraphrase there) No. :-)Perhaps she has a bit more sense than some other people's kids....
off to get The Daily Show off my DVR (I hope, I hope)
Copied this from Coupon Cabin Site - big AHA moment!!!
A Letter from CouponCabin CEO Scott Kluth
To all our Kate blog readers:Some nine-plus years ago, I started CouponCabin with the thought of creating a single website that had all the best coupons… no gimmicks, no fluff, just a site that was easy to use and that had great deals. Along the way, we’ve helped our users collectively save hundreds of millions of dollars.A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago, and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin.It’s with this that I am writing to inform you of our decision to discontinue Ms. Gosselin’s feature blog on CouponCabin.com. Ms. Gosselin’s contributions garnered both positive attention and criticism, but as always, I respect and appreciate your candid opinions, which often encourage us not to lose sight of our mission — to help YOU save money.We wish Kate, her family and her support staff all the best.

Kate Gosselin FIRED From Coupon Cabin: 'She's Simply Not A Good Fit'
Oppps ! Maybe she acted like the job was beneath her ?
Kate was just fired from Coupon Cabin for being "inauthentic".
Wow. One year out from her show being canned and now she is being fired from her blogging job. I have to say, people who follow her (and aren't her biggest fans) predicted this a year ago.
So another year from now, no one will be writing about her. She will have no job. Steve will be gone since the money is drying up. Julie May Carson will have dropped her. Kate will be doing anything she can to stay relevant but it won't work because mainstream media won't care. Kate''s bipolar will get worse and worse and the kids will ask to live with Jon full time. Kate won't care. Her house will fall into disrepair as she enters a depressive phase. One night, Robert Hoffman will answer his door to see an unhinged Kate yelling that all her problems are his fault. As he calls the police, Kate bangs and kicks his door. She is then carted to the mental ward.
