March Open Discussion

"The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by. 
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here.

Happy March everyone! Spring is almost here!

More lies from Bl's. Perhaps they would have been pleased if Kate had run to the tabloids to make money off the situation, as Jon did. Jon never misses an opportunity for publicity.
Kate did not only have a response of "never heard of him." She also tweeted that just because she wasn't saying anything publicly didn't mean that things weren't being looked into (para).
They don't know that Bill Blankinship had access to every minute of footage. He was contracted through a company by Figure 8 Films.
In addition to Blankinship, there was a Marine Captain, a firefighter and I believe a teacher. I don't see any blaming of the parents of those potential victims. Only blame for Kate.
Jon's toadies are always at a loss when Kate isn't tweeting and there are no shows. They have to relive the past. This was in 2011. However, I haven't seen them mention cupcakes lately.

Tucker's Mom (#182), good for the French!
There's great potential book title from the
G kids: "8 Little Lawsuits."

I still think one of TFW's lowest moments was her lack of outrage when Bill Blankinship was exposed. Out of all the dozens of crew members,
a film editor is the one who has unfettered access to every minute of footage. Didn't that concern her? That someone who finds children arousing had seen her kids naked again and again? But her one and only response to his arrest was "NEVER HEARD OF HIM!" Don't blame her, folks -- she didn't know Mr. Film Man was a pervert! She's raising 8 kids alone!

Sage said...

J&K+8 was not the only show Blankenship edited for Figure 8. I don't see bleeple blaming the other parents....just Kate their obsession.

Quiltart said...

Jon was around during the Blankenship crisis. Of course, he's not responsible, is he?

Farkle said...

Wasn't Blankenship in another state viewing the raw footage of filming? Really, Becs has her own personal film crews that she must have to pay that films births for a fetish site and she wants to go there? Maybe Tuckers Mom needs to do some research and ask about this before she throws darts at others. Was Tucker part of all the gossip when Polly was filming and talking the kids? Those pesky camera crews are just everywhere. imo

Quiltart said...

yes, Farkle, Blankenship was in NC and was never in the G's house.

I made a cabbage, ham & bean soup today. We had leftover spiral ham vacuum sealed in the freezer from last Easter. I thought I'd use that lot up before we get another ham this year.

___________
LOL! I'm making that tomorrow in the crockpot. The kids have sports practices, Easter play practice at church, and everyone will be eating at different times. Crockpot soup works for us!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wish the G kids had an itinerary like this! Sport practices, Easter play practice and Crockpot soup at home to eat in real bowls and real spoons and a mother that had the personality of Aunt Jodi!

///////////////////////////////////////

I can just imagine what kind of mother personality Redbird had!

Lets not forget it was Saint Jodi who sold stories to tabloids about Kate and the kids and also appeared on a tab show whispering about the supposed affair between Kate and Steve.

Judy said...

How does she think the G kids eat? With pretend spoons and bowls? They are so delusional.

Sage said...

They are hateful and make up stupid stuff to diminish Kate. Shows more about them than her.

Anonymous said...

These people literally SEARCH for tweets about Kate. They are so pressed about what she's doing and if she's still filming. I guess I will never understand. If you don't like a person, if you have just a distaste for that person, why do you continue to talk about them let alone SEARCH for them on social media? It's just weird to me.

Nameless in LA said...

Sage, They're not hateful, they're HILARIOUS, just like some guy who blogs about Full House. BL wants her minions to check out the hilarity there while they anxiously await her "hilarious" recaps.

I'm planning to finish up the recaps but in the meantime for any Full House fans out there there is a hilarious blog out there doing recaps of both the old show and the new one. Don't read them if you don't want to read a Full House hater. But he's HILARIOUS in how much he hates that show. He reminds me of us watching Kate Plus 8.

T has left a new comment on the post "A reality star's daughter breaks her silence: I wa...":

So this happened today: they're putting in a new telephone system at work, (I work in New England), and the outside contractors are from Pennsylvania. I asked one of them which part of Pennsylvania is he from, and he replied "Reading". I said that the "The only thing I know about that area Pennsylvania, is that it's where Kate Gosselin is from". Then the contractor says "oh be glad you don't know her! My sister works at a restaurant that she and her bodyguard used to come in all the time. My sister says that she was always such a bitch!" I said " Really? Which restaurant was it?" And he replies "Austin's".

I just about died! What a small world! Anywhoooo........ That was the end of our conversation as I had to get back to work, since I'm a real nurse,( and I just don't play one on TV like. Kate).
///////////////////////////////////////////////////

LOL they can never not have Kate on their minds! I would think a REAL nurse would have other things to occupy her mind than Kate.....so ridiculous!

Sage said...

The only time I think about Kate is when I get those emails or read here. Even then I do not wonder if she is tweeting or not tweeting, filming or not filming....she does not occupy my mind! These people are obsessed about someone they claim to hate! Go figure.

I wish someone would write a book about them.

PJ's momma said...

OMG, the political talk over there. I try not to comment about them, but now Admin is implying that a JEW's opinion of the Trump comparison's to Hitler are wrong. Ex Nurse said she didn't appreciate non-Jews saying how she as a Jew should feel, very articulately, as is her way, and is now told 'someone' doesn't get why she feels the way she does. Seriously shaking my head - but I can't wait to see Ex Nurse's rebuttal! It'll be good!

I find Donald Trump vile. I would find him vile if his sons had devoted their lives to wildlife rescue. My opinion of him has nothing to do with his children.

&&&&&


Then why on earth are you so fixated on them in the first place. What on earth does it matter what they did ONCE, legally, in 2012 and no proof it's ever happened since? Good grief.

You still haven't answered how this differs from Obama, who completely approves of and supports our great hunting culture in this country.

Or is it just about being contrary to me, Sue? Yeah, I know it's you. Get help.


_______________________________________


Becky is asking why someone is fixated on someone they don't like. She doesn't get that she's a hypocrite & she does the same to Kate. And I don't think it's Sue who's been bugging her, it's the crazy donutsforcollin.



Just Me said...

WOW! Don't just bash the Kate haters, bash their politics too! OMG!! What a LAME BLOG!

PJ's momma said...

Just Me, if you are talking to me, I am not bashing their politics. I don't care what anyone thinks or who they support. I was disturbed that someone is minimizing the way someone FEELS, especially since she is part of an ethnic group that is very relevant to the point being made. Nobody should tell anyone how to FEEL, and then explain why they are wrong. You feel how you feel. You should not have to justify that to anyone. I once told my husband something he said hurt me and he said, "You're not hurt...because I...." Uh, nobody gets to decide I am hurt but ME. I told him that and he apologized and said, "I didn't mean to hurt you. I am sorry." That's the respectful thing to do - not continue to drive home the fact that I shouldn't have been hurt because it's not what he meant. Much easier to move forward with that approach...

Sage said...

Just me, you all are so sensitive! Don't like that mirror being held up to ya!

You're right, it wasn't me. Got a chuckle out of it though. She's so sure, it makes you wonder what else she's wrong about.

Ex Nurse,

You are always welcome to comment here no matter what your opinion is. No moderation. :)

Ex Nurse is the voice of reason!

Point of clarification, Ex Nurse, it was first brought up by Tucker, not me.

Not that I have an issue with anyone bringing it up, it was fine to bring it up--but I'm not a fan of you re-writing history to scapegoat me.



I see Ex Nurse has been silenced now, too, Becks once again resorting to only posting a portion of the comment and then dissing the poster. I'm positive Ex Nurse just made an error in who mentioned the Hitler reference first. It's easy to do, done it myself by mistake, and we'll never know what Ex Nurse really said since her comment will never see the light of day.

Who's next to express an opposing opinion and be banished then accused of something and not allowed to defend themselves?

merryway said...

Bl is so abrasive and always determined to be right.

The other posters have stood by and watched as Bl degraded and argued with whoever dared to have a different opinion, thinking that it would never happen to them. Usually, it was anyone who ventured into thinking that Jon might not be the sainted father that Bl displays him to be. Bl certainly has branched out into alienating her posters. Lol, sometimes I think Bl's doing it to see how much of her crap they will take.

My guess is TLC stinks will be the next one to go or to be banned. She's tired of BL's constant defending of Jon. I can't see Bl putting up with that.

=========================

Ex Nurse's full comment was posted earlier in the day, but then was deleted. I have the full comment in my email. Ex Nurse didn't disparage Admin. All she said was that as a Jew, she was speaking from personal experience, HER OWN personal point of view, and felt it was wrong that she was attacked for it.

I find it laughable that Admin. complains about Sue_Buddy and others for pick-pick-picking on her, when she does the exact same thing to her posters.

BTW, I've had several comments that have not been posted simply because they disagree with Admin's opinion.

I think a lot of people over there are getting sick and tired of her "I'm always right" attitude and are purposely staying away. I know that why I am.

Sage said...

Again I say, you are welcome here.

stxmom said...

Happy Saturday everyone! I think spring has sprung in South Texas, flooding rain last week and 90's this coming week. Perfect spring break weather.

After a year of planning and another year of construction our new corporate office is finally complete! Moving day is next Tuesday!

Quiltart said...

Congrats, stxmom!

Regarding what Ex-Nurse said, as a Jew myself, I understand exactly what her feelings are... mine are similar. I found BL's remarks offensive, but that should not really surprise me. At the rate she's going it's going to be BL and Redbird all by themselves over there spreading their hate...

Quiltart said...

Who, oh why are they SO obsessed with Milo? They hate it when she tweets. They hate it when she doesn't tweet. No wonder the poor woman has gone quiet. With all of the scrutiny of the haters, it's hard to be a Kate supporter. (Of course, according to their twisted logic, no one can be a Kate supporter.) Poor Milo!

Nameless in LA said...

Quiltart, Don't forget Tucker's Mom! She's not going anywhere.

Anyone who is not a jerk would find the BL's remarks offensive. She doesn't have to agree with the Trump/Hitler comparisons, but to tell Ex-Nurse that her feelings aren't valid is rude and insensitive.

Sue_Buddy said...

Another 15 poster said...

Thanks for that info. I didn't think Ex Nurse was trying to make trouble.

I picture Becks having a raised platform in the middle or her tiny living room wherein sits a big desk and swivel chair where she sits and "presides" over the court (blog), she being judge and jury, banging the gavel--"objection dismissed!"

As for those who stick around, they're waiting to pick, pick, pick at Kate; seven years isn't enough yet. Of those regular posters whose names come to mind, I can't think of who would leave.

sadiemay said...

They're lost without Milo.

Ex Nurse said...

Here is the whole comment:

As far as the recent political comments go, the Hitler subject was brought up by Admin, not a poster. She wondered about the Jewish point of view, and I responded with my own personal perspective because I am Jewish. It was only an expression of my very personal point of view, (which was not really an opinion), yet it was discounted and disputed by admin and other posters by posting links that disputed my point of view. Other people weighed in and agreed, and some people posted links that disputed my perspective. Since a group of 5 Jews will have a minimum of 10 opinions, it is not exactly headline news that there is disagreement. I never said that I was representing anyone but myself, so I am confused why people felt the need to act as if there is some kind of dispute here. I am sorry that people think that it is a case of having the last word or that the discussion went on too long. Different people weighed in, some of which directly addressed my post. What I am hearing is that I, and others are not supposed to respond or clarify? If so, this is definitely not the right place for me.

Had I realized that admin was stating what she thought was a fact, I wouldn't have bothered responding. I guess it was my mistake in thinking that there was actual interest in differing personal points of view--I have certainly appreciated hearing it and it has, at times, changed my perspective.

This latest round is just too deeply personal to ignore, so I will be moving on from this blog. If, as has increasingly been the case, Admin has not been letting some of my comments through, I will publish this on the "other" blog.

--------------
For the record...

PJ's momma said...

Ex Nurse! I hope you don't go back. You are far too intelligent and compassionate to be treated that way. I really hope we can meet at that local body of water someday! Take care and know that some of us greatly respect your perspective on several issues and enjoyed your posts.

stxmom said...

Everyone is entitled to their feelings. We've all had different life experiences, that's what makes for interesting discussions. No ones feelings should be diminished or dismissed.

Courtney said...

Ex Nurse, how unfair to you that she wouldn't let such a well-written post though. I have read over there for years and always enjoyed your posts. Most of mine never make it past her censorship, and if they do it's usually only a portion, which she then argues against. And of course, she always chosen a snippet that, taken out of context, looks like an attack on her. Then her faves rally around her because poor, poor Admin is getting picked on again.
I used to post in opposition to the lies she was always spewing about Jon and child support and her crap claim that Jon couldn't be relieved of child support, even if Kate agreed. I have always had serious doubts as to whether she really is an attorney.

Sage said...

Ex Nurse, I too, have always enjoyed your posts. I may not always agree but they were always well thought out and written.

Welcome and also welcome to Courtney.

Ex Nurse said...

Thanks Sage! Be careful what you wish for...

Waving to PjsMomma!

There were several of my comments that didn't get published on this subject. Including the one where I pointed out the irony of Admin's assertion that the proper response is that comparing Trump to Hitler trivialized the Holocaust, when there is a link on her blog of her Hitler video that she made around the time of the ill-fated cruise. I also pointed out that this was parody, and as such, it was pretty effective. I personally wan't offended by it, but I'm sure some would be. It was quite complimentary, which makes it even funnier that she didn't publish it. I guess it just didn't fit her narrative that I am somehow out to get her and she is the reasonable one.

Sage said...

I can't decide if Becky is getting worse or her self=righteousness is just starting to get really old. I can't imagine her being a very effective attorney with the attitude she has.

Sue_Buddy said...

Ex Nurse, thanks for posting you original comment so we could see your so called "scapegoating" view.

You've experienced some of the same things I have with regard to making comments that don't get posted. There have been instances where I did research and provided links to substantiate my point of view and she did not post them, instead choosing one sentence to post and then taking it out of context to use as an insult against her. She would not challenge the links I posted. That tells me she was incompetent to continue to debate.

Courtney said...

Thanks for the welcome Sage.

Sue_Buddy, I'm beginning to think many of the posts that she claimed were "drive-bys" were really posts by regulars, but she had just taken one or two lines out of the actual post. That way she wasn't calling out a regular and risking others taking the posters' side. She could then rally the support she seems to thrive on, and everyone reading would blame those ole sheeple who have nothing better to do than harass poor admin.

What "cycle of abuse?" A parent appearing on reality TV is not guilty of child abuse by virtue of that choice.

But parents should be, or at least are supposed to be, good role models for their children. If the child sees her mother taking on a whole different personal for the drama of the show, or making a sex tape, what will that teach the child?


&&&&


A perfect example of this is Farrah Abraham. Many of you saw a flavor of her on Couples Therapy.

If you think Farrah's kindergarten age daughter Sophia is not going to be deeply affected by her reality show escapades you're living in a fantasy world.

//////////////////////

Another example is Jon Gosselin. How were his kids affected by his appearance on Couples Therapy.? Masturbating and saying he wishes the mother of his kids would 'fucking die'.

Quiltart said...

Sage, I wonder how his kids have been affected by the multiple "Loves of his Life"... at least three of whom he has lived with?

Quiltart said...

Re Farrah Abraham: IMO, she has serious issues that would have affected her child whether she was on TV or not.

Sage said...

I remember on Couples Therapy Liz stated they had broke up for awhile and he moved another woman in with him for a few weeks. I believe that is when he did that one print interview...Dads table or something like that...when he peed in someones driveway.

The kids were staying with him for a week at that time. I believe he had them there to look like a caring dad as this random woman was living with him.

Yeah, those kids are going to have warm and fuzzy memories about dear ole dad and his whoring around.

PJ's momma said...

I watched CT a little and saw the episodes in question. Whether he did or didn't is up for debate, and the words were said in anger (and I didn't think it was meant literally) - but should not have been said on camera where the kids could ever hear. What REALLY got me though, was when they gave another girl a vibrator so SHE could do it. She was obviously embarrassed and they kept on and on about it. To me, that was way worse than what he did or didn't do. They just thought it was the funniest thing. That show is garbage. I watched then out of curiosity but just can't now.

And yes, the many live ins and their kids. I have already said it, but been there, done that, and it is damaging to kids and their relationship with their parent. The Brady Bunch is not real and life rarely works out that way, especially with a revolving door.

There has been at least one (and maybe two) interviews I saw where they asked him if he would do Celebrity Apprentice or DWTS and he was like, "Sure! Sign me up!" He's no different than Kate in that respect - it's easy money. But she is evil and he's been knighted or sainted or something. Makes no sense.

Sage said...

Jon sounds desperate when he hints and come right out and says he would do those shows.....the shows do not want him.

merryway said...

Hey! Wanted to wave Hi! to new posters. Ex-nurse, have always enjoyed reading your posts at Bl's. I also thought you were too reasonable and had too much common sense for that place. Those traits are in short supply over there.

Sage, Jon has vied for DWTS and CA. What was super tacky, was when he tried to get Kate to do Couples Therapy. That was another time he publicly slammed Kate that his toadies conveniently forget. He also threw in a comment about Kate and Steve dating, just because that's what superdads do. I would think that his publicity stunts are hurtful and tiresome for the family. That article was shortly after he showed up at Kate's yardsale where TLC was filming.


http://www.eonline.com/news/595010/jon-gosselin-is-open-to-filming-couples-therapy-with-ex-kate-gosselin-would-you-watch-the-show

Jon, 37, explains that their eight children will benefit from their parents reconciling. "We're divorced, but why can't we co-parent?" he argues in Life & Style's Nov. 17 issue. "I was thinking Kate and I could do a televised sit-down with a doctor and work out our differences, because our kids are suffering."

In the Nov. 17 issue of In Touch, he adds, "She's still so angry at me."

Kate, 39, isn't on board. "She says absolutely not," Jon says. "She doesn't want her faults exposed."

Who could blame her?

In the same article, he snipes, "I'd love for her to finally admit that she's dating [her bodyguard turned business manager] Steve Neild. It's confusing for the children." Kate has denied the alleged romance.

Judy said...

If memory serves me right, early on Jon admitted that he started the rumor about bKate and Steve because he just had a feeling. There has never been one iota of proof that they are a couple.

Hi peeps! I have been under the weather but with spring temps, finally see the light at the end of the cold/flu tunnel. I am also taking care of my friend who has terminal cancer:(. I may pop in and out, but wanted all of you to know that reading back on your posts is entertaining.


Welcome to the new peeps, love it when Becs old posters call her out. I do hope bird knows TV is fake, wow, Becs needs to send her a lifeline. LOL.

Hi Sage, hoe the little guy is waiting for the special day to come and is excited. :)



Sage said...

Yes, Farkle he is excited. He has an Easter egg hunt with us and with his other grandma.

We also, have more excitement coming. I think I may have told you all that my son and his wife are expecting another baby in August.

My daughter and her husband just found out they are expecting TWINS! in October. My daughter is freaked out. LOL I am rearranging my vacation time so I can take it when she comes home from the hospital...its going to be fun!

Sue_Buddy said...

There's some really serious analyzing going on over at 15 Min as to whether the recent tweet sightings of Kate are legit or not and why they could or couldn't be. Becks is really into it, naturally interjecting her experience in New Orleans like that's relevant somehow.

Yes, I know about hospice, my friend wants to remain as private as possible. I am granting her wishes as long as I can. Thanks for your kind words.

PJ's momma said...

Farkle, I understand, but hospice nurses can come to you and give a little respite if you need it, help to bathe, evaluate meds, etc. It is usually covered by insurance. Just keep it in mind. You are saint for doing what you are doing!

Courtney said...

Sue_Buddy, and then there is the all-knowing Tucker adding her two cents that NOLA is a gritty, dirty, bawdy, play place, totally unsuitable for children.
In actuality, it's a great city to take children to, if you avoid a few blocks on Bourbon. My kids love it. But, I'm not a pearl-clutcher so maybe that's the difference.

Sage, I know I'm a newbie here, but congrats! Grandbabies are the best.

Sage said...

Thanks for the congrats...I have one grandchild right now but I will have four altogether by the end of the year!

Puff said...

Congrats, Sage! Twins are the best once you get beyond the pregnant stage and deliver.LOL

Quiltart said...

How does the all-knowing Tucker's Mom know what the G kids do or do not do or like and not like? She doesn't! All this fantasizing about the the poor pitiful G kids is getting very old. They do not film 24/7, 365 days a year.

PJ's momma said...

Not only is the speculation silly, it is just wrong. I have a friend in the area and I know the kids DO partake in local activities. And yes, I have seen proof, just a few months ago!

Anonymous (#179), the question was asked to a community of people who read here and have shown themselves to be knowledgeable about TFW, her show, and her show's schedule -- past and present. I think posting that question to this community of people was completely reasonable. And if you don't enjoy this community of people, perhaps you shouldn't read here, and should instead find another forum with a topic you do enjoy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Is there anything that BL hasn't done or seen? She's an expert on everything. Just ask her. She grew up with horrible winters, walked 10 miles in the snow, uphill both ways. She was a nanny for a narcissistic celebrity. She has seen celebs at the local Goodwill, because they donate, not consign. She's an attorney in CA but knows everything there is to know about PA child support laws. She worked in DC and is an expert on all things political. She knows more about how Jews feel about being Jewish than they do. She knows how the G kids think, act, behave.
Is there any. single. thing. she isn't an expert on?

Quiltart said...

LOL, Courtney.... Don't forget that she is an expert on narcissistic personality disorder... She should be, because she suffers from it more than the celebrities she criticizes!

Quiltart said...

Another expert has spoken. She WISHES that MOST of the kids visit Jon. She has NO IDEA what their schedule is. Their so-called local experts don't know either. Living in the same vicinity does NOT make them experts on what this family does. And how do they know why kind of "high maintenance" activities Kate engages in. THEY DON'T. (Going to the nail salon does not make you high maintenance.) They sound sillier and sillier as they go on about things they don't know about.

I often wonder if any of these experts have children of their own. I doubt it.

How do you know how the kids spend their time? They may participate in all kinds of activities. You don't *know* these children.

No one knows their schedule exactly but we do have a very good idea of how often they are filming, and it's usually weekends and holidays.
******
C'mon. The tups go to school, film on weekends, breaks, holidays and vacations AND they're all activity pursuing organized youth or church groups, music, hobbies and sports?
When?
Don't forget that most visit with Jon, too. Let's not also forget cleaning bathrooms, kitchens and feeding chickens, a dog and a bird.
Again, how would they fit it in? And how would Kate have the time when she's busy with her own high maintenance?

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 194
There's something called circumstantial evidence, and we know they've spent a good deal of time the past two years out and about filming instead of making commitments to a solid and enriching activity or activities. Most of us either have kids or remember being a kid and know how these activities work. You can't miss a bunch of meetings or practices or events without being kicked off. Or if you can, you will find yourself at a severe disadvantage compared to the other kids who have the courtesy to COMMIT to such a thing.

These years right now are extremely important to their social development. It's not fair to this important time Kate has decided to clog it with a commitment like filming. Look what a filming commitment did to many other child stars. We have the evidence it wasn't a good thing. Even those who had a great experience on their set still acknowledge how much they missed out on.

Courtney said...

Oh, the Beckspert blows again. For a woman who has no kids, she sure knows all there is to know about having kids, doesn't she?
I'm not a fan of Kate's, but I also don't think that everything she does is against the children's best interests.
And spending two days doing yard work certainly isn't detrimental to them.
I can't count the number of weekends that I've told my kids not to schedule anything social because we had work to do around the house and they were expected to help. Every year when we put in our garden, they spend two days helping. One day is tilling and preparing and the second day is planting. By Beck's standards I'm a bad parent I guess. But my kids know how to plant a garden. They also can side and roof a house, frame a room, hang and tape drywall, and install flooring, and have played baseball, football, been in marching band, student council, and theatre, and have traveled to about 28 states. But, still, I've worked them all weekend, so according to 15, I suck at this parenting gig apparently.

Here's your other huge red flag circumstantial evidence: the planting episode started more or less on an early Saturday morning and went for two days straight. Kate said so. 

So from Saturday morning until Sunday night ALL eight of the kids had NOTHING else to do? No sport game or practice, no scout trip, no birthday party?

It's not possible eight different kids actively engaged in all sorts of good activities have an entire weekend with absolutely nothing to do but plant.

One or two kids, yes. All eight, no. 

Oh and also Mady and Cara say they sleep away the day, and Kate even has said that on twitter. Kids who have a healthy schedule filled with good activities might be able to have one sleep-in day now and again on the weekend, but it's not often.

stxmom said...

I guess I should be in jail, this week my school age kids are on Spring Break and they've been working their butts off helping our company move to new offices. They've been up before the sun rises and we haven't been home before dark all week. They are 10 & 12 and are given age appropriate tasks that they are completing happily. My 20 yr old daughter has helped out as her work schedule premits. Heck, my 24 yr old son and his wife drove from their home 2 hrs away on Sunday to help out. It's called being a family and teaching kids to help out when needed. I'm sure my kids would rather be doing something else during their break but this is life.

I don't always agree with Kate but from the little snapshots of film we see on our tvs she's not as bad as they wish she was.

stxmom said...

Disclaimer - my kids are not slaving away while I'm adding a comment on SWE, we are sitting in the waiting room at the orthodontist.

Quiltart said...

Hate to break it to Becks, but most teenagers sleep a lot, whether they are involved in activities or not. They probably stay up later when they sleep all day, but that's what they do.

Nameless in LA said...

Ha, the Beckspert! That's perfect, Courtney.

Stxmom, Clearly your children will be social morons and miss out on all of life's grand opportunities, such as college scholarships, because you put them at a "severe disadvantage" by forcing them to slave over spring break. I hope that new office was worth sacrificing your children's futures. ;)

(The Beckspert has made it clear that the only reason to participate in activities is to get scholarships or other tangible benefits, not because a child might actually ENJOY said activities. The enjoyment part is irrelevant.)

PJ's momma said...

Ooooh, Nameless, you make an excellent point. Activities ARE viewed as if they are a key to a successful future or some other benefit. I was a band kid. My mom made me stay in band from 6th grade through 11th grade, because they purchased a flute for me. Our band wasn't great, but it was good enough and we got to go to parades (such as the state fair, a bonus), got into the football games for free, etc. To my knowledge, NONE of the kids went on to musical careers or even played in garage bands (it's a small town). But we sure had fun together at the time. Not every team is going to win a championship, but they can have fun trying! The biggest benefit is that it teaches kids discipline.

Quiltart said...

Having the kids have chores teaches them responsibility...and there is nothing wrong with that!

Francie said...

Like I've said before, look at the kids who work on the family farm. Talk about chores! How about the kids who work at the family business? For those kids, that is life how they know it. For all of us, how we grew up was life how we knew it.

merryway said...

Hi to all! I've hit one of those busy spells, where you awake and you're already behind.

Sage, I'm so excited for you! What a special time that is going to be, to have three new grandbabies!! Such a super blessing!

I love the name "Beckspert!

Toadies constantly yell and wail about the loss of privacy for the G kids. All the while, they are digging for any info they can find.
The toadies want to hang on to that old belief the G kids live an isolated life trapped in the "Konpound." If that fails, they need to downgrade and devalue whatever activity in which the kids do participate.
Whenever Kate has mentioned chauffeuring the kids or weekend sleepovers; Jon's toadies are right there to call her a liar.
Bl allows them dig for info on the kids. But, is faster than a speeding bullet to defend Jon's right to privacy.
It's so funny that they never recognize that out of all the many many people that get mentioned on that blog, Jon is the only one Bl thinks deserve the right to privacy.
Toadies don't see themselves as creepy, wanting all this info.

I got the impression that the instruments were school-issued and not an individual expression-more like part of their curriculum.
The implication was that Kate is fostering musical pursuits herself, like many parents, but the music is part of their school program.
The kids looked like they barely knew how to handle the instruments, let alone play them.
It looked like show and tell. Just one more thing for the show's story line.

Pa Dutch Mom: I do know what activities in which these kids participate in school and extra-curricular activities, clubs, sports and so forth."

=======
Without saying what child or children have specific activities, can you tell us that two or four or how ever many have activities outside of school? We know they all play an instrument. And we know Cara plays a sport. Mady said she acts in plays. But perhaps you can just generally state that yes or no how many kids (not which ones) do have activities (do not have to state the activity). Thanks! It would at least settle the debate here where the kids do other things other than film.
March 18, 2016 at 2:51 AM

Micha said...

It is amusing that those who constantly moan that the kids should have their privacy are the ones who are digging into the kids' lives the most and want to know what the kids do, if they do extra curricular activities. No conflict there for them? No, of course not, because they lack self awareness and are obsessive about the Gosselin kids.

I don't need to know if the kids play soccer or are on teams or if they just go home and do nothing but chill and do their homework. Plenty of kids are on teams and plenty of kids do nothing after school, and it all works out in the end. The fact that they go to a school that offers a music program is great!

Sage, congratulations! Very exciting news!!

Why does BL think anyone cares about the boring, rambling, too long recaps written weeks and even MONTHS after they have been on TV? Her faithful few still heap her with accolades... and I think that is the ONLY reason she write them, because they are not funny and are certainly not entertaining. Kate could say, on a sunny day, "The sun is shining" and BL would write a treatise about how the sun isn't shining simply because it's Kate.

Sage said...

There are some there that make really lame 'jokes' and the rest come back and say how hilarious they are. They write that they are always snorting or spitting their coffee out. Doesn't take much to humor them.

They have been wondering where Aunty Anne is. She is one of the more bitter and hateful ones. Just think if we were like them we could say that she is Milo...since they are both gone at the same time. Now that would be funny....Milo playing them.

Kate is certifiable and her abuse and cruelty when it comes to her children's father knows no bounds.
I just do not get how people don't see this! It is egregious to constantly knock Jon down. Those kids love their father, and all Kate does is tell them that he is horrible, unworthy and a loser.
Let me tell you something-Jon is the one who could have done better.
Kate will never accept her role is the breakdown of her marriage. To her, she just chose wrong, which is to say, it's all Jon's fault.
And her asshat sheep believe this utter dreck.
///////////////////////////

No words....sounds like Tuck is fantasizing about what Kate says to the kids.

You are the asshat Tuck. You don't recall how Jon stated that he despises Kate, called her a bitch and wish she would fucking die...all this on TV. God only knows what he tells the kids about kids.

Great, witty recap, Admin! Kate's daughters are definitely ruling that household. It's not Kate that's outnumbered, it's the three boys. My heart goes out to them.

This comment perfectly captures the twisted nature of the BL and her minions. If you truly believe that the Gosselin children are being mistreated, you shouldn't be entertained by the "witty" (not) recaps, nor should you be attempting to entertain others at the expense of children you claim are being abused. Sick puppies.

Looks like Jon has a busy life going on and lots of work. Various frequent DJ gigs, even judges' table at chili cookoff next to other local celebs. So there's no truth to the rumor that you have to exploit your kids to make a living.

"Even" the judges table at the chili cook off?!? I'm sorry, but is that really a coveted gig?

Jon is lucky that he doesn't have to support his eight children.

PJ's momma said...

Please don't flame me. This is a travel related comment. I noticed that when something is very popular in Europe, it hits here the next season. The moto boot trend was one, for example. Then ponchos. Anyway, a couple of summers ago, it seemed everyone in Copenhagen was wearing old school New Balance shoes. Sure enough, they hit here the next season. Not my thing with my big feet, though I did try some on. And they were very expensive, probably because they are trendy! Like $150 for a basic model. Just no. And here they are, and not a basic model: https://www.instagram.com/p/8zHwTwSF0X/?taken-by=dj_jon_gosselin

And hoodies and NFL tickets and other stuff. I hope the kids get some of the same things. That is all.

Soon I think I will need a new name because PJ appears to be reaching the end of his little life. And last week an inattentive driver smashed into my rear while I was stopped and pushed me into the car in front of me. Life is just GREAT! Grrrr. Hope everyone is doing well though. Thinking of Farkle today.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator has left a new comment on the post "Recap: Kate Plus 8 'Deck Party': The 'majic' show ...":

The bottom line is of course you can make money without exploiting your kids. You have to work hard, apply yourself, get creative, use your celebrity status to your advantage. Jon honed in on something he likes and is good at, being a DJ, and now it's bringing it what looks like virtually fully booked gigs every week. He also pops up now and again to do an interview or other local celeb gig like chili contests. In contrast, Kate refuses to look outside of the box of exploiting her kids. That's fine, but she takes it to the next level and LIES and says there's nothing else out there that would support them. That's a flat out lie, she knows it, and it must drive her crazy that Jon proves her a liar every time he spins those records.
/////////////////////////////////////////////

Kate proves that Jon is a deadbeat father....but that does not bother him. He has got his beer and women.

Quiltart said...

EVERY.SINGLE.THING that Kate has tried without the kids... these same self-serving lunatics, along with their Twitter cohorts, have put an end to. They claim every job Kate gets is because of the kids? Do you honestly think ANYONE would pay an iota of attention to DJ Jon Gosselin if NOT for his kids... and a chili-bake off judge? What a joke! I'm sure he doesn't make enough money to support himself, much less eight kids. He always manages to find women who work and have a place to live... and he lets them take care of him, just like Kate did!

PJ's momma said...

Quiltart, you say something that I've been chewing on for a few weeks. I work at a food bank and recently had a new client who has never been unemployed. She is terrified. Her teeth were chattering as if she was freezing, a reaction I have never seen to fear before. Later in the day, another lady I know told me she finally got a job! It was very exciting. I told her that another lady had been there a couple hours before and I wish they knew each other, so she could encourage her. The first lady said her former employer is disparaging her. And they are attorneys! That is illegal. They have to know this. And this wise lady said, "Nobody should EVER try to keep someone from supporting themselves and taking care of their family." (The first lady is a single mom whose ex does not pay child support.) What a profound thought and she is absolutely correct. NOBODY should take it upon themselves to prevent someone from surviving (unless there's some dangerous allegations or there was theft or something). Especially for someone they don't even know. It is wrong and it is immoral.

Quiltart said...

PJ, I agree that it's wrong and it's immoral and they have BRAGGED about it and still have the audacity to pretend that they care about these children. A couple of days ago they were ranting about different contracts Kate lost. According to some of them and some of the twitter people, they have written 1000's of letters to anyone who could possibly hire Kate... We've seen what happens when someone innocently sends her kids something... like the boys' bathing suits. I'm still convinced that they were responsible for the Coupon Cabin debacle, too.

PJ's momma said...

They write letters to someone who might have the IDEA to hire her? Wow. Wow wow wow.

Quiltart said...

The twitter folks do that... and the owner of RWA, which got shut down, bragged about getting Kate fired from every job she had had or will have...

Quiltart said...

...and some of the BL's folks do it, too.

PJ's momma said...

Again, wow. I can probably make a pretty good guess as to who would do it. One praises the Lord out of one side of her mouth and is all over the web bashing Kate Gosselin out of the other side of her mouth.

Quiltart said...

You've got it!

PJ's momma said...

That's just sad. You know, I would NEVER begrudge someone needing care of any kind. Any one of us could find ourselves in that situation. But my stomach turned at the scenario described above, because her care is provided free of charge to her and at a high cost to the taxpayer. And I don't even have a problem with THAT. But to scream and holler about someone else's freebies, while receiving round-the-clock care and collecting free birthday meals and such? I couldn't take it.

Nameless, that is so true! The subject of abused children is always good for a laugh.

Lol, at BL praising Jon. Sure, it's easy when you have ex who provides full-time child care and supports the kids. Jon only takes of Jon and he has barely been able to do that. Whenever Kate has done anything by herself, books, blogging, or a show, they have launched full-on attacks. Kate can't even do a charity talk or event without them being all over it trying to dig up any little detail to twist into their way of thinking.
Yes, Redbird is a lover of writing letters. What a sad way to fill her time.

stxmom said...

Just realized my kids do not have school on Friday. We just had spring break last week. I'm ready to get back to our normal schedule.

Of course Jon gets opportunities because he is the father of sextuplets. No one would know who he was if it wasn't for the kids. Jon benefits from being their father but he doesn't do much of the work involved in raising them - he feeds some of the kids one night a week and has some of the kids some weekends as his schedule permits. The bulk of the parenting, education and financial burden falls to one person. No matter if you like Kate or not Jon chose to give up many of his rights to parent his children to get out of paying child support.

Jon's toadies think it's fine and dandy that RH wrote all about his interactions with the G kids. They think nothing ill of Jon for having RH (a pap) hanging out with his kids. They loved RH for focusing on Collin (as if that's not creepy). He was a hero for trying to destroy Kate. Yet, Deanna is a lying coward violating the trust of children because Jon is not a PEZ dispenser.

There are still the ones who believe in magic of Jon. That he can swoop in with a court order to silence anyone who dares to speak against him or to put Kate on twitter silence.
After all these years, they still go there. Lol

@Tucker's mom,IMO i think Deanna really went private cause she took the cowards way out and knew she was wrong,if anything she said about Jon was true,i believe she'd hold her ground and not go private,why else would she go private?What is she afraid of?Unless jon did hit her with something.I think Deanna also loves the attention(cause the fans use her as the "source"of truth about what goes on in the Gosselin house)and she may go public again when or if there's an episode centered around her and Kate going out to party.(most likely the birthday)
March 23, 2016 at 8:09 AM

Agree- Deanna should be ashamed that she violated a trusted bond with the kids. No one needs to read her vilify Jon on Twitter, making him out to be a monster because the kids who never see him don't get presents.
At what point does Jon say, "enough"? You want Daddy's presents but won't even spend any time with him?
I say good for him. He's not a Pez dispenser.

&&&&

The whole thing from Deanna was so unfair in the sense that there are two sides to every story. Jon very well may be speaking to therapists, lawyers and other experts about how to handle a situation where children are demanding tangible things like gifts, but are not willing to see him. He also may have tried to offer gifts in the past and been met with rebuke, or it caused the children stress. Or, what Deanna is saying might not even be accurate. She's only getting it from Kate's camp. Depending on the kids, especially these kids, it's perfectly reasonable for a mental health professional to worry that providing gifts to children who have no intention of seeing him only encourages a dysfunctional relationship and fosters the unhealthy idea that a relationship is measured in "stuff".

Deanna and anyone who claims to love these kids should be heartbroken that parental alienation has caused problems between some of them and their father and that he has to grapple with what to do about gifts and things in the first place. A good parent is in agony over that tough situation. Instead, Deanna seemed to gloat in it. It's really sick, not to mention immature. She is a 40 year old woman. Grow up.

Here in CA it's hard to get away with fudging it on homeschooling, no matter what your religion is. Michelle Duggar's program would never pass muster.

I live in California. And it is not true that home schooling is strongly regulated here. The HSLDA, which is a home school advocacy network, delineates CA as a low-regulation state. (https://hslda.org/laws/) The Gothard curriculum absolutely can be used here and no doubt is, along with myriad other fundie curricula that are contrary to science and basic historical fact.

PJ's momma said...

I am reading there too. They are going on and on about bathroom stalls. I guess "I" am not normal, because I bend down to look under stall doors to see if someone is in there. I go to a gym where there are only three stalls in the ladies' locker room and the first one has no lock on the door. At peak times, I have had to use this stall, and nothing will put panic in your heart faster than someone pushing on the door while you are going to the bathroom, even if you have your hand or foot out to prevent their entry. So yes, some people DO look under stalls as a courtesy, rather than trying the door. I was at Nordstrom Rack today (which contrary to Admin's statements, does not sell stuff that was worn and returned, but sells mostly stuff that didn't sell in Nordstrom stores). They are having 25% off clearance, which is where/when I get most of my $7 wardrobe. It was a zoo. Women were coming out of dressing rooms, but it was hard to keep track of which one was vacant because the doors automatically close - so guess what people were doing? Bending down to see if there were feet in the dressing rooms, rather than trying the knobs! I guess we are all dumb!

I do not agree with the Duggars about the transgender thing. BUT, and it's a big but, recently a MAN who made no attempt to present as transgender, entered a municipal pool's locker room here while girls were getting ready for swim practice, and basically said that it was the law that he could be there and there was nothing they could do about it. He did it twice and left. To my knowledge, the police did not catch him. Where there are loopholes, there will be creeps to exploit those loopholes, and this guy proved it.

I just wrapped up Making a Murderer, followed by reading at 15, and I'm like.........GRRRR.

BL can never ever admit when she is wrong. She doesn't want discussion, she can't stand for someone to disagree. Bl wants whatever she says to be accepted as the truth, no questions asked.
Uhm, BL it doesn't matter what was, it matters what is.
I believe that in CA, if you are a parent wanting to teach your child at home, you have to file an affidavit as a private school. That exempts the child from public school and that's pretty much it. CA is a state that requires no proof of accomplishment. There's no requirement for testing or evaluation by a certified teacher in order to pass to the next grade. As a "private school" the parent also issues the diploma.
Bl doesn't even seem to realize there may be only one parent teaching a child. The state requiring immunization and attendance records to be kept on file is hardly rigorous control. Lol



Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 55

A state that recently required any parent home schooling have a TEACHING LICENSE, is not, any which way you slice it, loose about home schooling. CA has strict regulations, including requiring anyone homeschooling to register as a private school, requiring an administrator to ensure that all home schooling teachers are appropriately skilled to teach, and numerous academic and health compliance documents must be filed with the state of CA on a regular basis. Hardly laissez faire. Living in CA, I'm surprised you conveniently didn't mention those strict requirements. I haven't the foggiest idea why some organizations consider CA not very strict, given all the strict requirements can be found right there in the code.

Your original point that fundamentalists suck at homeschooling I completely disagree with. I won't generalize like that as you have so unfairly done. Some of the smartest kids are know are quite religious home schooled kids.

Your generalization about fundamentalists is flat out unfair and untrue, and simplifies your argument. I'm sure some fundies suck at teaching their kids. The Duggars are one of them. Others do a fine job teaching their children. On the flip side you could send your kid to one of the broken public schools in CA, and that's really not much better.

I have no clue why you always want to pick one small point at me when it seems like we're on the same page. I think we both agree the Duggars terrible home schooling has led to pure ignorance. Let's leave other families out of it. Why take it to another level?

It really is insulting. It's one thing to be a flawed human being as we all are. It's quite another to be a child molester or child exploiter, or one who aids in or covers up molestation or exploitation.

Nobody's perfect has been grossly distorted. It was never intended to excuse truly bad, immoral, criminal, or hurtful behavior.

Nobody's perfect is something you teach your kids when they're nitpicking peers over silly things. Jimmy talks too loud, Sally never combs her hair in the back. Nobody's perfect is meant to help people accept all the many differences among us and get along.

Is Becks admitting that she and the rest behave like kids when they nitpick Kate's hair, clothes, body, etc?

While all the elements of the campaign have not been finalized, it will include the opportunity for viewers to personalize the campaign on social platforms with "I Am" signatures.
========
My "I Am" signature is "I am tired of TLC's bullshit programming!"

Simple solution...don't watch.

I'm just happy that Kate and the kids are coming back this summer! I've really missed watching them.

So a group that was put on moderation because their info was outed is making fun of and posting details from a fan's personal facebook page.....why? That is so mean.

Sage said...

I agree, PJ.

Hypocrites

PJ's momma said...

Yes. Hypocritical and very mean spirited. Fortunately, something else has come along to stir up outrage, rather than picking on someone who may be naive about sharing so much publicly on facebook.

============================

I totally agree. I tried posting a comment saying that it was wrong, but of course, it was not put through. I had a least hoped that it would send a message and that the comments would be deleted. But as of now, they haven't been and I doubt they will be.

I think that a lot of the posters at 15 feel the same way. I have several friends that post there, and I know they feel the same. But unfortunately they are not allowed to openly voice their opinion, because any comments critical of what's posted on the blog are not put through, except when Admin copies part of a comment that isn't posted, just so she can respond and pontificate.

It's one of the reasons why I and others don't post as much as we used to.

PJ's momma said...

Another 15 poster, it's why I left long, long ago.

If it wasn't for Tucker's Mom addressing every little thing that others say, and the shadow-boxing by Admin, it would be almost dead over there. Which is what I thought they said they wanted - to be done. Kate tweets and there's outrage. She goes quiet and so does Milo and there's outrage. While they were speculating about her filming, my friend saw her in their town at a local store.

I understand wanting to be part of a community. It's fun to comment with like-minded people, even if about recipes and such. But to pick people apart because they are fans, simply because there is nothing else to talk about, is awful.

I think it's sad that some people get such joy out of being mean and nasty to anyone who doesn't agree with them.

I know many of the regulars here from another blog, many I'm friends with on Twitter, a few I'm friends with on Facebook. I don't always agree with them but it would never occur to me to be mean and nasty. We all have our beliefs & opinions and it's ok to politely disagree but why be mean to another human just because you disagree?

stxmom said...

I'm 3 pounds from my goal weight and every "prove your not a robot" is about food! Thanks Sage

PJ's momma said...

stxmom, every prove you're not a robot for me is about rivers and skyscrapers! Too funny.

Off to watch a movie or some more Better Call Saul. Have a great weekend, everyone.

Sage said...

stxmom, So glad to hear about being almost to your goal. So hard to lose weight! I have been craving donuts for so long....all I have to do is see the word and my mouth starts watering.

Sage said...

There is a lot of people missing from Becks blog. Maybe there is hope for them yet.

I'm not following this that closely but didn't Gypsy herself reference her own FB for more information about her new baby? It's one thing to seek out FB because you're snooping around for dirt, quite another for that person on Twitter to publicly invite folks to check out their FB.
________________

No, she did not. At least there's nothing I could find.

What's this?

"Announced new baby on FB. ITS A GIRL!!!!! 💝
AubriElle Kevyn.
8.5lbs 19 3/4 in.. 8:54am"

Was this not announced on TWITTER, directing people to FB?

I deleted the comment from High, but really, you can't have it both ways. You can't say keep off my FB, then specifically reference FB on Twitter. She could also make FB private like most people have sense enough to do. I've deleted the comment, but I'm giving our posters a bit of a free pass on this one, since Gypsy all but put a welcome matt out to her FB. I'm deleting the comments for Gypsy's own sake because Gypsy is dumb and won't keep things private and is even referencing her public FB on her public Twitter, not because our posters did something wrong. Please don't post her FB comments, thx.
//////////////////////////////

Becks is such a bitch. Maybe she should read the comments from her own 'dumb' posters before calling a fan dumb. Love how she states that her posters did nothing wrong.

Kate is a twit has left a new comment on the post "Recap: Kate Plus 8 'Deck Party': The 'majic' show ...":

Since when did posting someone's comments from their personal FB account become okay? I don't understand why something a Kate fan posted on her personal FB has become fodder for a discussion on this blog?

Wasn't the original reason for this blog being put on moderation due to someone finding the FB accounts of some of the posters here and then posting their personal info on this blog?

Is it okay now, because it's a Kate fan?

This is a new low and I find it very disturbing.

It also reminds me of a Kate supporter who used to post things from some "haters" FB accounts. I think you all know whom I'm referring to.

I used to think this blog was better than that. Unfortunately, it seems I was wrong.
///////////////////

Yup, you were wrong. That blog was always low...you are just starting to wake up to it.

PJ's momma said...

Huh, that was posted 3 hours after I said the exact same thing here. Which is fine. I wonder what was mysteriously deleted. And the target is still being declared DUMB at the same time that much patting on the back for removal is occurring! Why do I read there? Why? It's like a car wreck I can't look away from!

Watched a cute little movie called Like Sunday, Like Rain. Highly recommend it. Also, a documentary called Cutie and the Boxer!

They are still practicing using their imaginations over at Bl's. What a world they live in. In their world, a judge allows Jon to give interview after interview bashing Kate. It's okey dokey for Jon and RH to pump the kids for info and pre-reveal that they did a wife swap with Kendra (ntm, the whole Jon/RH book thing). Jon can do a tv show such as Couples Therapy where the focus is bashing Kate for money and camera time. Jon gives interviews where he discusses how often his kids visit and even goes on a morning show insinuating that Kate is the one keeping some of the kids away from him. That same judge who is apparently fine with Jon doing all that, is going to swoop down on Kate for Deanna responding to Jon's insinuations. Lol, they are really trying to keep the hope alive for Jon to be the sainted father. Yep, I'm sure Jon (who gave away legal custody) ran to court and cried "Deanna said something about me after I said something about Kate." And, that judge patted poor maligned Jon on the shoulder and issued a court ordered twitter smackdown on Kate and Deanna. Yep, I'm sure that's just what is going on.
Silly toadies.

A court order in a child custody case still would not explain Kate not tweeting Easter greetings, nor thanking her fans for birthday wishes, nor prevent Gladys from her incessant de-aging remarks and her so-called teasing about Kate having another birthday.


&&&&

Yeah that's what gives me pause. A court order can certainly order her to stop directly or indirectly bashing Jon or discussing custody or encouraging friends who do, but I don't think a court order can tell her to get off twitter comletely. That she can't even talk to her fans about non-custody info. Although, I can see someone like Kate, if admonished about her twitter, pouting about it and swearing off all twitter out of spite.

They wanted Kate to be quiet, to go away, and she is and did. Let it go. Good grief.

Little old PJ went over the rainbow bridge last night. I may change my user name/avatar to reflect his companion who is still here.

Have a good day, all.

Nameless in LA said...

So sorry, PJ's Momma. I have a kitty in intensive care right now and just lost one in December, so unfortunately I know the experience well. Hope you and his doggy companion are doing okay.

PJ's momma said...

Thank you, Nameless. I'm very sorry for your loss too and hope your other one will recover.

A friend said something so true last night: Sometimes, as the best friend, you have to break your own heart.

Thinking good thoughts for you and your kitty. Now, shall we obsess over Kate's absence? LOL

Nameless in LA said...

Yep, what your friend said rings so true. Doing what is right doesn't make the choice any less heartbreaking.

Yes, let's take our minds off of sad things and obsess over something completely silly. Here's my theory: Kate and Jon secretly reconciled and Kate is building the suspense over her absence before making the stunning announcement.

Come on, who's with me here? I'm sure I'm onto something. ;)

PJ's momma said...

Come on, you can do better than that!

Milo is Kate and they both conspired to have Jon kidnapped and there is a court order to keep them both quiet so that they don't spill the beans, because they want to run away together to spend Kate's and ratclaws' offshore account money, even though they are the same person. Endora from Bewitched gave them the idea. Can someone please find out if the court order is public and get a copy and post it here?

Nameless in LA said...

OK, PJ, I see your theory and raise you one more ridiculous theory. My first effort was not my best, but I am now in conspiracy theory mode. I think that Milo, Kate, Deanna and Jon are filming "Sister Wives...PA Edition." Jon has gone from serial dater to polygamist, and Kate the media whore is willing to be a sister wife. Jon is aiming for eight wives to match his eight kids.

PJ's momma said...

I fold! You win! That is brilliant!

I REALLY needed this laugh today. Thank you!

merryway said...

PJ's momma, I'm sorry you had to say goodbye to your beloved pet. Nameless, sending good thoughts for your kitty.

Your scenarios are hilarious.

And in today's installment of Ask the Beckspert, a poster stated that student athletes are enslaved to their college.

Thankfully, Becks weighed in, drawing from her vast personal experience in every.flippin.thing, and set that poster straight. Becks kindly let that poster know that she, as the recipient of an academic scholarship, had it ten gazillion times harder than anyone on an athletic scholarship.

Of course when the poster challenged dear Becks, Becks reached deep down in her bag of been-there-done-that-better-than-anyone and pulled out another verbal slap down. And when the poster called Becks out on her own hypocritical comments, Becks responded with "I never said that".

That dang Beckspert is just never wrong!

merryway said...

Well, here's something different. Jon is doing a dancing event for charity, "Dancing With The Reading Stars." (It took me a minute to realize it was Reading PA, not "reading" as in books).

The event is on April 22, they've been practicing several months. I'm waiting for the bleeple to ream Jon for not promoting as they do to Kate (they rag on her for not promoting enough, Jon has not even mentioned this charity.)
Also, never saw a thank you from Jon for birthday wishes. That used to be a favorite mantra from their selection of rants.

Don't understand why anyone bothers posting at Rebecca's blog. She's SUCH an entitled, know-it-all. 'Beckspert' is a GENIUS nickname, btw.

That blog has run it's course. It needs to be put out of it's misery. Kill it with fire!!
