Tonight is the night Jon reveals his new career...stripper! Will he finally find success? lol
What in the world was he ranting about on Twitter last night?
He was ranting because ROL emailed friends of Jon and asked them questions.
Jon was ranting because he's mentally ill, probably an alcoholic, definitely a narcissist, in arrested development, and has deep rooted anger issues combined with a need for exhibitionism. ;)His big announcement is lame, an advertisement for a file transfer subscription.Jon said he lost 25 lbs for this stripping event, but a video he posted on March 11, shows a full face and figure. http://www.facebook.com/therealjongosselin/videos/641897889343023/I really really want to see a pic of Jon as a stripper. The Gosselin saga is a strange one.
So, Jon just danced around on stage, no stripping. I still wanna see a clip.http://www.eonline.com/news/840604/sorry-ladies-jon-gosselin-didn-t-actually-take-his-clothes-off-at-his-strip-show
You're right, Merry. The guy has some deep issues. So full of anger!
Bwa ha, I feel foolish. It was not the file transfer site which Jon was promoting. He had uploaded a movie of himself describing why he did this. There is a running explanation of edited cuts as Jon talks about the media, having an awesome 40th birthday party with his friends and family, and donating part of the proceeds to St. Judes.
For those that want to see it it is on his f/b. I think he comes across as a self absorbed fool. https://www.facebook.com/therealjongosselin/
So, basically he played the media he hates so much, for attention? Maybe he's testing the waters for something. Very silly.Cute lamb, er, sheep!
OMG...he is still is a total loser. No growth or self awareness...40 going on 13 LOL
Oh well, that's Jon for you. Could we expect anything less than arrogant Jon thinking he's so clever, when really he just comes off looking like a fool, as usual?
Jon must need money, he sold his story to Daily Mail also.I feel sorry for his brothers and their families, I doubt they have much to do with him.I understand why Kate and some of the kids stay far away from this mess.
Jon giving money to St Jude? I would like proof of this. Lol!!!!
I am quite enjoying the meltdown that the BL is having over this. It must suck when your heroes let you down. She has defended Jon endlessly, insisting that he just wants to be a private citizen out of the spotlight, when it has been abundantly obvious for years that he is endlessly chasing fame. She is yammering on and on and on about the horror of his actions and being openly nasty to regular posters. She keeps insisting that the problem is how he has humiliated his children, but that's not what's really bothering her. She's embarrassed that she spent years backing an idiot.
I'm enjoying it too, Nameless. :)
So it sounds like BL actually has a limit when it comes to defending Jon Gosselin. Who woulda thought!?
I hadn't read over at BL's in quite a while. They really believe they know everything about Collin and his condition. How bizarre! They've told their fantasies for so long that they have lost all touch with reality! How do they know if Collin is still away or back home?
Quitart,When your hero fails, the BL has to pick on kids. Her story is old, rehashed garbage to make her feel important. What's really sad, she is worse than Jon ever could be. It's must be hard being a low life, nothing she has ever done has helped her.
If you want to give up 3 minutes of your life, DailyM has two exclusive videos of Jon's performance. In the first one, as Jon introduces the dancers, he says he will never ever look like that that because he drinks way too much. They also had a "bleep" on something he said.The second clip is very short and he's dressed as a firefighter. On his radio interview, Jon said he made about $4.00. But, the rags keep reporting a lady stuffed a $100.00 bill in his pants.Jon's ego knows no bounds. He believed the internet cared enough to break over the possibility of him stripping. Much like his past talk, such as whatever forgotten project he was doing on youtube, some documentary about music. He was sure that as soon as some big Hollywood producer saw his face on youtube, his show would be picked up. Jon assured the world that was how it work. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4376922/Jon-Gosselin-pole-dancing-hula-skirt-strip-club.html
merryway,Sure hope Jon reported his 4 bucks to the IRS. :)
Ha Farkle!Guess the bleeps never figure that perhaps one of the reasons some of the kids choose not to have a relationship with Jon is that he associates with people who want to destroy their mother. He's a full participant in the hatred against Kate, he's made money off it and used it for publicity. Not a thought to how it affects his kids.Jon has never had any business participating in a hate blog. But, they love that Jon has communicated with Bl. I remember when Ellen posted on the hate blogs calling for a boycott of the show.Btw, they are always calling Kate doofus and talking about how stupid she is. Stupid is having a big ole tattoo of an ex girlfriend's name across your back.It's kind of funny how this fake stripping joke turned some of them. They barely blink and even denied that Jon masturbated on CT. Even after Jon said that's what he was doing, Bl continued to deny it.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxRealitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 19 You seemed to have stopped supporting Jon, or at minimum giving him a hard time, based on his public embarrassment to his children. I guess Kate is a Twit thought it applicablle to your support of Trump. I don't think it's that far fetched. &&&& I don't know what it means to "support" Jon. I still like many of the things Jon has done, including that crucial few months during the divorce he made sure the kids were off TV, I have spoken to him directly several times, I think he's the better parent, and I think all the children should have a chance to have a healthy and normal relationship with him. I think he's a victim of parental alienation and that he really stepped into it having kids with Kate, and will forever pay. I think he probably hasn't used enough self help to get himself out of some of the pickles he gets in. Oh, and I think this stripping incident was DUMB AS F---. Doesn't change other things I've supported about him. I don't judge people like that in blind support or blind recoil--I take each situation as it comes and look at each one as it comes individually, though always keeping in mind the bigger context. I fail to see how this has ***anything**** to do with one's politics, whatsoever. Totally lost on that one. April 4, 2017 at 7:32 PM
So if one supports someone in politics, the BL has to have her say on that too? Good grief, could maybe she help her own state that is broke and the homeless that live there? I think the perfect job for her would be to dig the railway that goes nowhere. :)Speaking to Jon would be so boring, his grammar is like a 3r grader. Of course, one that brags about that might just have the same mentality.
I don't know what it means to "support" Jon. I still like many of the things Jon has done, including that crucial few months during the divorce he made sure the kids were off TV,Does this woman think that if she tells a half truth often enough that people will forget the whole story? Who is she really trying to convince other than herself?Jon didn't take his kids "off TV" until TLC announced they were removing him from the show and changing the name of the show to "Kate Plus 8." For months after divorce papers were filed Jon filmed with the kids separately from Kate and had no problem doing so. He told the paps that the kids loved filming, they were not being exploited and everything was great. It was only no longer great - as far as Jon was concerned - once TLC didn't want him on the show anymore. Jon didn't stop TLC from filming for the kids, he did it out of spite. He was a big baby back then and he's a big 40 year old baby now.
Pesach Sameach ✡️💙
Thanks, Sage! We had 21 here for our seder tonight! I'm beat! Chag Sameach, everyone celebrating!
The BL is so twisted. Uh, I don't think I'll be holding my breath waiting for her brilliant prediction to become reality. Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 133The final stages of Colin's elimination will include quietly changing everything from plus 8 to plus7. We're not there yet though. But just wait.
There's something vital missing in that woman's brain and her soul that she can really think this way and say these things. She has no feelings, no compassion and no common sense to fall back on. Nobody should be waiting for anything to change in her. How many years has it been now? And the only change in her is that she's gotten even worse.
Becky hates her own posters almost as much as she hates Kate. Treats them like total crap and they keep coming back for more. Concerned Chick has ZERO self respect, imo. I'd NEVER allow that sanctimonious, nagging, I'm-always-right-and-smarter-and-better-than-you bitch to talk to me that way! How very.........embarrassing for those posters.
Happy Easter, everyone!
Happy Easter Sage and all the peeps here!The weather was raining, then sun, and turned out nice for the Easter Egg hunts!
Bl wrote another recap from a show that aired in January, the twins' 16th birthday. They are busy ripping into the lady who appeared on the show to watch and do a project with the other kids while the party was going on.Of course, they labeled her as "creepy." They are having meltdowns and outrage about this woman being around the kids. Bl thinks it is sinister that the lady was a former teacher. However, none of them thought a thing about creepy RH being around the kids. Jon let that creep, a tabloid reporter, alone with his kids. RH fed them donuts deliberately undermining their mother. He was fixated on Collin, which was just weird. He waited over two years to publish his book which was supposed to save the children. He sold stories about them, bashed their mother every which way he could, stalked the family, etc. etc.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxRealitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 79 So Brownie is a FORMER teacher, eh? That's a red flag. That's a good career, and usually once people go to through all the trouble getting into education they stay there. She seems a little all over the place to me, blah-blahing about this and that venture, chasing down random D lister celebs, apparently working for years now angling a spot on this stupid show. And quite frankly, it is a red flag to me a TEACHER, someone who would have gotten some training in child psychology and in how to effectively communicate with children, and is a mandatory reporter, wouldn't see the problem in how Kate treats her children. She could have a very legitimate and reasonable reason to leave teaching. But I've yet to hear it. April 16, 2017 at 3:43 PM
I'm a former teacher. I changed careers after teaching for eight years and have been in my current career for over 40 years. Does that make me creepy? What twisted logic!
Quiltart, Do you have a very legitimate and reasonable reason for leaving the teaching profession? If you can't provide one, I am afraid I will have to label you creepy. Although maybe only a 5 on the 1-10 creepy scale. A former nanny who ran a birth fetish site featuring teens and a genital mutilation victim? Now THAT rates a 10+.
You know you guys are right. Hoffman was creepy fantasizing if Kate knew he was watching her from afar.Becks is downright creepy with that birth fetish site and now is obsessed with the Gosselin kids.When you really look at it all of them posting over there are creepy with their scenarios and word of the day comments.
LOL, Nameless... I taught elementary school. The students and parents loved me. One morning I woke up and realized that I didn't like teaching school. I taught in a parochial school that was very narrow minded and very religious. (I wasn't as religious as the children I taught.) I hated that it ate up my whole weekend with planning and paperwork and many evenings, too... and I was about to become a mom. Changing careers was one of the smartest things I've ever done. Might be enough to be on the creepy scale, but it was better for the children and for my own mental health. (This happened a lifetime ago!)
LOL. You know you didn't actually owe me an explanation, right?!? Good for you. Far better to be a former teacher than remain a teacher despite not liking the job!
That is not nearly a creepy enough explanation. However, if you had any close proximity to Kate, it would be extremely creepy! But only then!
There is no one I know more creepy than the BL, she is a mental hospitals dream patient, the meds would have to be tremendous to sedate her sick mind. Never realized how sick and twisted she was for having a birth fetish site and charging old men to look at young girls giving birth and asking for closer shots. Of course she cleaned it up some when caught, she made $ doing this to underage 3rd world minor girls. She can go straight to hell, her resume will always be this first, stalker of a innocent family second, and making a mockery of being a 3rd rate lawyer at most last. What a miserable life she has, a blog that lies and I do believe she makes fake posts so that she can talk to herself. She is worried about someone on a TV show? The BL is one person who should never be allowed children at all! imo
This lady, Kate Casey, was supposed to interview Jon in early March. Apparently, he ditched her the first time. She got back in contact with him when she heard about the stripping thing. Bl has ignored this interview even though a few of her posters have mentioned it. First of all, Jon did the interview on his limited parenting time. The bleeple would be having fits if that were Kate.One tidbit of information is that Jon thought he could just walk away from the show and do what he wanted. He said he didn't realize TLC would sue him. He seemed to think that contract meant nothing.He gets his digs in at Kate. When asked about how the kids are doing, if the show helped or hurt them. Jon said he wouldn't know until they were adults and could speak freely on their own out of her way. Jon said he lets his kids express themselves but he can tell they're hesitant. He said his focus was finding his son and reconnecting with him. That Kate had estranged him from Collin, the twins and Alexis. (he sees Alexis sometimes).(12:00) "the kids that are dedicated to you and want to be with you, and are with you. Those are the ones you got to focus on. Then, on the backburner you got to look at trying to reconnect with them but now you got to through a court system. Which, our court system in this country has failed us miserably, miserably. Especially, the taxpaying people. It's almost disgusting how much I have to go through just to be able to see my son who is shipped off to somewhere that I don't do even know where he is. I have a good idea but I don't really have 100% clarification on that."'He also said court was frustrating in that civil court doesn't have any penalties for not following orders. He said they don't put you in jail. That's such a crock. Family court has the ability to take your children away and put you in jail. He still hasn't seen Collin, which to me says he has no parental rights over this child. He really is lackadaisical about the children who don't see him.(15:30)Jon said he was moving to the promotional side of DJing. He's going to Dj on the side and work a reg job, going back to the tech. Jon said he had a lot of huge interviews with different companies. He said it was hard to stay local for his field, so he would have to move to Philadelphia or King of Prussia.What happened to his youtube music documentary that was going to get picked up as soon as some big Hollywood producer saw Jon's face? What happened to the scripted show he's supposed to be in? You can hardly work a regular job and do a series. http://loveandknuckles.com/jon-gosselin-interview/
Ha! Quilt, you're creeping me out! Red flags everywhere!!!!!!:) LOL
These interviews always make it glaringly obvious that Jon just does not "get" it. The kids who are "dedicated" to him? More likely they are the kids who can put up with his behavior.If Jon is at the point where he has to "go through" the court system in order to see any of his kids that would have to be because his prior behavior resulted in these restrictions, but why take responsibility when you can blame everyone but yourself for the state of your relationship with your kids?
P.S. Thanks, merryway, for summarizing some of the interview details.
Hi, everyone! Hope all of you are well!
Hello and hope everyone is doing well! Sage, I have been thinking of you. A mom in our town started a project because her son was born early and spent considerable time in the NICU. She started crocheting blankets for the babies/parents there and is encouraging others to do the same. So we are crocheting like crazy. The blankets are easy and fast because they are so little. It's fun and she says the parents love them. And this mom loves handing them out with a special note because she can truly empathize with what the parents are suffering.So...I see the name and handbook of the kids' school has been published. By a group that thinks the kids should have privacy. I would never have known where they attend school nor do I want to know. And that handbook is for the PARENTS! My gosh, that is crazy.
Happy Mother's Sage and all the peeps here too. Just crazy schedules around here to keep up with. Miss you all. :)
Happy Mothers Day to all the moms....pet moms too!
Happy Mother's Day!!
Hoping a Happy Mother's Day was enjoyed by all.
BL just can't imagine how 8 teens could manage to secretly buy an iPad for their mom. It's beyond her scope of reasoning how such a thing could take place.What's sad, is that Bl, a practicing attorney, doesn't tell the truth about Jon's custody battles. Jon sold story after story about Kate's house of horrors, psych exams, emergency custody hearings, going after custody of 6, 8, or only 1, and how it's all Kate's fault he doesn't see some of his children. Bl never even mentions how there was a supposed emergency custody hearing about Hannah, meaning Jon hadn't seen Collin in months but was only concerned about the one kid.Jon still only sees four kids and doesn't know where Collin is staying. He wants his fans to believe that he went to court and Kate wasn't ordered to tell him about Collin or produce the kids? Bl knows Jon has been spouting BS. Jon has been using his children and lying. Jon has limits on his visitation, gave up or had his legal custody taken away. He doesn't pay child support. Time and time again, he lied about wanting custody. It's a horrible way to use his children. It must hurt some of them in a terrible way.Bl ignores all the obvious about Jon. But her inner Sherlock had deduced that the G kids could never pull off surprising their mom with iPad.(Secretly hoping Gollygee pops up with reference to the Brady Bunch episode where the kids pitched in for a silver platter for Mom and Dad's anniversary)xxxxxxxxxxxkateplusmy8HAPPY MOTHERS DAY, MOMS! I woke up to this and a huge exciting surprise gift! My kids put THEIR money together and got me a new iPad!!! I was shocked and I cried tears of joy! The beautiful breakfast was enough for me but their love they showed in coming up with the perfect gift AND buying it (and keeping it a surprise!) overwhelmed me! I was still using the ORIGINAL iPad version and it wasn't working so well anymore! Thanks, kids! I LOVE YOU ALL SOOOO MUCH! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 177 It didn't happen the way Kate said. We know they couldn't have ordered it online unless another adult was helping Plus if it were online it would've been shipped to the house and Kate would see it, and what other responsible adult would let kids spend this kind of money without asking their parent? So we are left with the option of a big box store that they somehow got to without telling Kate. But then they would still have to have a responsible adult with them because I would be shocked if a store would sell something like this to a child under 18 with a wad of cash and no adult around. A glaring important fact in Kates story is how they coordinated the purchase secretly. If she were really so shocked at what they did for her wouldn't she be the most shocked at how they arranged such a complicated scheme without her help? Wouldn't she talk about that? She's a good liar, but not the best liar, and there are usually little holes in her stories like that. May 14, 2017 at 10:49 PM
merryway, LOLOL, I actually spit some egg sandwich out when I read your line in parentheses. Funniest thing I have seen in a long time! Thanks!
That Brady Bunch line cracked me up too. I'm glad that I'm not the only one enjoying iPadgate, which seems to be occupying the BL's every waking moment. Yet another lengthy post on the subject, and she demands an explanation from Kate in this one. Who knew that buying something online requires a minimum of 1.5 weeks of lead time? I'm must be some kind of Amazon genius, because I only require about 30 seconds of lead time to make a purchase. *********************************Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 185The more I think about this the more holes it has. These kids don't strike me as ones thinking that far down the road. Look at Mady's birthday party. They finally waltzed into the bakers with specific demands for a cake just a few days before. Kids this age aren't going to think way ahead about Mother's day, ESPECIALLY when it's their birthday that week and it's all about them, without the help of an adult. Pulling off a Mother's day surprise of this level is something adults can do, not children. So unless they had an adult to guide them, I don't buy it.If you order it online, you've got to get organized at least a week and a half in advance if not more. You would still have to figure out how to get it shipped to the house without the stay at home mom noticing, and this is a mom who eagerly collects freebies in the mail, so you can imagine she would go after a package from Amazon or Apple like a wolf. But if you order it in the store, it would still require a lot of advance planning because they have to somehow GET to the store without Kate noticing or asking questions. They don't drive! And what about the money? They all store wads of cash at the house? Or did they have to also go to a bank.And again, this all during their THIRTEENTH birthday week, folks, that they planning all this out. This deserves a big fat PUH-LEEEEASE.Explain Kate, where did they buy it and how did they pull it off so secretely when your house is in the boonies? Oops, didn't patch that hole in the story so well!
It seems that BL has forgotten that Kate also has two sixteen year olds. But never mind that. She sure is good for a laugh.

All knowing Bl is making up history. Despite what Bl thinks, Kate had quite a bit of use for her nursing degree after she married Jon. Kate worked in a maternity ward after the twins were born. After the tups, Kate worked a double-shift on Saturdays in a dialysis clinic. Or, maybe it was every other Saturday. Not exactly lazy. Also, Kate had no reason to do so if they were being floated by Jon's dad and people sending them scads of gift cards and donations.They call Kate lazy. Yet, they constantly accuse of her doing the hard work to become a RN in order to snag a doctor. That's a lot of work and a long term plan. :)They are so happy to rehash how Kate doesn't have a real job and isn't a real single mom. It must be a nice break from every other comment going on about Collin and how Kate doesn't care, sent away, doesn't visit, joyfully carries on without.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxRealitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 97 Plenty of people who have a degree in one thing end up working in a different field, not just me:)! &&&& She acts like she left the esteemed career of nursing to go pursue the esteemed career of firefighting. She left nursing to go exploit her kids, and has the nerve to call her scheme a career change, like she went back to school later in life to pursue her true passion. She's something else. She got into nursing not because like most people she wanted to help people while still having a great career path and stable yet noble job. She got in to marry a doctor. When that didn't pan out, she had no use for it anymore. She will never go back, there's no reason to. May 22, 2017 at 6:03 PM
Maybe it's just me, but if I had gone to nursing school for the sole purpose of snagging a doctor, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have settled at age 24 for the the 22 year-old kid with a high school degree and no discernible career path. Meanwhile, the BL also is thinking about Kate's sex life, which I find creepy as hell. ******************Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 102She's likely made more money than being married to a doctor would have made her. She's made her choice. Besides this way she doesn't have to have sex now and again. Win win.
Agree, Nameless...creepy. Also, I believe Jon was working as a waiter when Kate met him.
Once again, Bl is the all-knowing expert.Not very interesting, but ftr, she's wrong about Debra Winger.Winger's done some movies. But, In the last 20yrs, Winger did a Law and Order, a Lifetime movie, and a couple of tv series.She sure didn't leave Hollywood decades ago. Winger has two kids about 10 years apart, the oldest must be around 30 (I never could believe that she and Timothy Hutton were a couple).As it seems to go, her hits were sandwiched in between a bunch of flops. She quit working for 6yrs. I think she wrote a book.Lol, I'm guess Bl watched Searching For Debra Winger back in early 2000 and thought time stopped there.Also, Winger was born and raised in Ohio.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxRealitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 10 Debra Winger is stunning at her age, always the straight talking New Yorker not afraid to call people out on their BS who didn't give a darn what Hollywood thought of her or how she was supposed to be. She left Hollywood decades ago and raised her kids in the countryside, quietly making really high quality independent films now and again. She thinks network TV is mostly garbage, and has the highest of praise for the new way we watch things, like Netflix. May 25, 2017 at 8:05 PM
Hopefully the BL and her socks are thinking of our military today and not posting her bs about a fantasy life she wants. I think in her area there would be plenty of soup kitchens she could volunteer at.Remember our soldiers this memorial day,, past, present and future ones. The sacrifices they have made for all of us is something to be remembered.Miss everyone here, school is out, graduations are winding down, and baseball season is in full swing.
Wow, someone should stay off IG for the sake of their health. I have been LMAO at BL. She can't resist having to be right. No matter how her posters beg to leave off politics, she has to respond. Of course, she's doing her thing where she doesn't post the comment. Just the poster's blurb that was able to push her buttons.Even though they know nothing, they rant day after day about Collin. But, BL has never admitted that reason Jon has not seen Collin is because the court has deemed this is the way it is supposed to be. Any attorney would know that.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxUnknown said... 26 Regarding that stupid IG of her kicking the ball for her dog. What a dolt. What is wrong with her???? She is clearly showing she has no control or command of that dog. Why the f**k would anyone care about that little bit of video that she showed? It sucks. Boring. I don't give a flying f**k if nookiepookie wants to chase a deflated f**cked up ball that the lazy ass kicks for her when she should be working and not trying to find ways to kill the hours during the day. WHO CARES??????? Kate: your dog is NOT special. She does nothing out of the ordinary and why you would think anyone would marvel at her antics is beyond comprehension. #dolt. June 1, 2017 at 7:40 PM
This "unknown" sure can rant about something she claims she doesn't care about. Doesn't she see she is contradicting herself? Who cares? She seems to care very much. How very doltish.
Why argue at all? Never mind, I know. It is silly though. Just don't engage, especially when your ow people are asking you to leave it alone.Farkle, the graduations haven't even started here yet. The kids still have two weeks of school here. Crazy! And the Mariners suck! But we still watch...Hope everyone is doing well.
Here's an unbelievable comment from Tucker's Mom, one of Bl's most prolific posters. Didn't know moms weren't allowed to be fans of anyone. You have to wait til your kids are grown and out of the home?She thinks Milo is horrible. Yet, It's fine for Tucker's mom to hate on Kate day after day, comment after comment.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxTucker's Mom said... 61 https://www.instagram.com/p/BUxhX-IDaXG/ ****** I'm just not believing this is Milo's daughter. I think Milo is much older than Kate and perhaps this is her granddaughter. Maybe her cell phone is really old, with that grainy video, but it's obvious that she's keeping the girl's identity private. I just can't imagine a mother with a daughter graduating H.S. would spend her days worshiping Kate Gosselin and posting almost every single day on her social media. It's horrible if she's that into Kate when she's got kids of her own. June 3, 2017 at 5:35 AM
WOW! She posts 60-70 times a day sometimes! She must not have kids at all!
Not only does Tuck hate on Kate but she stalks a fan of Kate's and hates on her. Now that is obsession and just plain weird.no self awarenessweird
Because Glenne Headly passed away and she portrayed the mom in Mr. Holland's Opus, Bl is once again the expert. This time it's on Deaf Culture.Bl has no idea what she's talking about. What she claims regarding "mainstreaming" never happened.It was not public schools that taught oralism, it was the schools for the deaf. It was concluded to be a failure long before the 80's. ASL was considered a language by 1960 and oralism was finished shortly thereafter. (of course, there are exceptions to the norm.)Prior to 1975 (when the law passed ensuring education for "handicap" children), the majority of deaf children were educated in schools for the deaf, not mainstreamed. With the 1975 law, public schools had to provide services, not just shove deaf kids into hearing classrooms. Bl's claim is imaginary. I was 7, when my sister left or college in 1970 to study as interpreter (a non-existent profession at the time, according to BL). As a result, I grew up around a lot of deaf/hard of hearing who became friends of the family. I used to be a proficient signer, now I can barely carry a stunted conversation. Uhm, Bl is thanking goodness that a fictional mother knew what her fictional deaf son needed. Lol I love how often BL is wrong when she proclaims to know-it-all. It still cracks me up that she called Debra Winger a "straight talking New Yorker" when she's an Ohio/California gal.xxxxxxxxxxRealitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said... 35 Heartbreakingly real. The movie perhaps as a side note touched on the climate of treatment for the deaf back in those days. Mainstream was the order of the day, no sign language, integrate the kid at a hearing school and surround them with the hearing world. If you talk to deaf people born about Cole's time, 65 or so, on towards the early 80's, chances are they went to a hearing school and never learned to sign. It made the case that for some kids, mainstream isn't going to work. Deafness is as much a culture as a disability, and many kids were emotionally wrecked by mainstreaming. Thank goodness in that story a mother knew what her son really needed. June 11, 2017 at 7:49 AM
Too funny. She is so full of BS and yet her regulars actually believe the garbage that she spews.
Merryway, that is so interesting and wonderful to hear from someone who really knows.Have you ever seen this video? My husband sent it to me recently, though I saw it years ago. There was a better quality video in which you could see him in complete awe of her but I cannot find it now. It's really special. It's common to have interpreters here and I have seen them at things like Men's Choir, and it's very special, but nothing like this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBcPlX5BCRA
Yeah, I don't know how BL ever came to the conclusion that it was the norm to throw a deaf/hard of hearing child into a public classroom and expect them to swim. With oralism, speech was the goal and signing was forbidden. But that's not what Bl is talking about either.As an expert, Bl can make up her own facts. LolPJ's momma, thanks I had not seen that. It was a little fuzzy but you could see her well. Their little dance at the end was cute too. I watched my sis do a lot of interpretation for church choirs and services. She went to a private Bible college and I believe the name of the major was Deaf Ministries. Looking back, it was sort of an unique experience to have that exposure.
merryway, the men's chorus here does Silent Night at their Christmas performance. First they sing it very softly a cappella, and then they go quiet and do it in ASL. They all wear white gloves and the lights are dimmed. You can hear the hundreds of arms fluttering. It is breathtaking and unforgettable. They have an interpreter for the rest of the show. He is well known out here, he does a lot, including things like Town Hall meetings.I read the comments on that article and the interpreter died at only 39. How sad. Eddie Vedder used to live here and we saw him at a store many years ago. He's itty bitty like a pop tart!Now I'll speak to something I know too. I am running a half marathon in a few days, same organization as the one Kate did, and my third one with them. Be sure to send the scooter for me! Oh wait. There aren't any! The roads are closed! No scooters! Be sure to look at a pic of me with and then without my jacket to prove I cheated! Oh wait, that doesn't play out either, since people shed their jackets and they are picked up and cleaned/donated to a local charity, which is outlined in your race materials. Oops! Even if I am photographed with my chip on my shoe, it means nothing! Heh.Signed,A Real Runner (insert eyeroll emoji)Have a wonderful day, ladies.
Tucker's Mom said... 138I think the fans know Kate and how she starts things and doesn't follow through.They used to love her Twitter.Kate used to clock in over 100 posts per day!*****************It is with great enthusiasm that I nominate Tucker's Mom for the June 2017 "People In Glass Houses Award." Really, she is the last person who should be talking about the number of times a person posts. (I never followed Kate on Twitter, but I'm guessing that she rarely, if ever, posted 100+ times a day.) Meanwhile, the BL is so desperate for attention and accolades that she actually took the time to recap a clips show from 1 1/2 years ago.
