Kate Gosselin On Live With Regis & Kelly, Jon & Kate Police Arguement, Walmarts Fall Healthtex Line Still w/Kate
Paps Go Too Far Snapping Argument With Jon & Kate: Radar.com
Radar seems to truly be stalking this family. And this time I feel that they have taken it too far. They are entitled to have some sort of privacy REGARDLESS of being celebrities..
"Police were called to the Gosselin house Thursday night after Jon and Kate got into a heated argument. One source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com, "Kate showed up at the house unexpectedly. It's Jon's scheduled time to be there with the kids." As the couple's marriage has unraveled so has the civility between them. "Kate couldn't get access to the house. She was upset," said the source. It's not clear who called the police. But it is clear that Jon didn't want Kate there and they argued.Police arrived but no arrests were made. Kate left and checked into a local hotel."
Kate Gosselin Fall Healthtex Line Quietly Arrives At WalMart
When my girlfriend told me that Kate's Fall Line of Healthtex clothes were actually selling now and doing well in Walmart I was shocked. Was this the same line that everyone said was being shelved after she showed everyone on The Rachel Ray Show the outhit that she designed and created? Well I will admit I am a dedicate Gymboree shopper and have never gone to Walmart, but only because there are none close. So I made the trip to see the items first hand. I was really surprised how cute and incredibly priced everything was. The EmailKate.com was going to be a wonderful tool for mothers and I am in the process of writing to Healthtex in the hopes that they will re-implement it. The campaign was supposed to be this: "Wouldn't it be great to get tips and e-mail from Kate Gosselin? Just send her your e-mail address at EMailKate.com and you will receive an e-mail from Americas busiest mom. "
Here are a few photos I took of the now simple Healthtex displays. I wish Kate was still on the posters, it would have been great. I really hope they can work this out and get together again.
Kate Gosselin Praised For Live With Regis & Kelly Appearance: Now & Then
Below is the clips to compare from this year and last. I blasted them on my previous blog last year for having those dangerous crayons that took up the whole stage. And making them sit on bean bag chairs.. It was crazy! Obviously put there by people without young kids! But as we all saw, this year was a big difference. Again, I am so proud of Kate and how she is handling all this. This the many reasons why I continue this blog, as a small means of support!

Kate and the kids continue their beach vacation, while Jon tends to the kitchen renovation, and the kids innocently note some of the changes in their lives...
Welcome back, Jon and Kate watchers. I don't know about you, but I found it a little tough to watch last night's episode without thinking of Kate Gosselin's latest appearance on The Today Show. My colleague Annie Barrett put it best when she pinpointed just how ironic Kate's comments about her family were. But, putting that aside (if you could,) the episode picked up right where last week's episodes left off, with a beach trip and a kitchen renovation. Don't all get too excited at once!
With Jon at home helping with the installation of the cabinets (he claimed that it was "weird" waking up to an empty house and it was a "different change of pace), Kate and the eight were still down at the North Carolina shore. While last week focused on the obvious paparazzi presence, tonight's episode (at the beginning, at least) went back to the kids just being kids. Kate treated her brood to bacon, saying they were "thrilled to death" for their once-a-year treat (well, yeah, it's freakin' bacon!)
Of course, it wouldn't be an all-new episode of Jon and Kate Plus Eight without mention of the Gosselin's marital woes. The kids argued at the breakfast table about which one missed their dear old dad more, while Kate acknowledged she "can never make up for" Jon's absence from here on out. It certainly was a bittersweet moment when Hannah confided to her mother, "I'll never stop loving you and Daddy." Sigh.
Back on the beach Collin opted to bring a little levity back when he methodically scooped up ocean water to dump it on his head. The poor, wee lad had sand on his head that he just could not get off, much to his family's amusement (and, okay, ours a little bit, too). As much as things have changed, and as iffy as I feel about the series these days, it's cute little things like that that make the show still somewhat worthwhile.
Not to be upstaged by their younger siblings, Mady and Cara upped the ante with some impromptu plays. Mady claimed, "I wanna do commercials" and a little part of me died inside at the idea of seeing these kids thrust even further into the spotlight. Alas, Kate only implied that her girls' desire for attention was only to be expected, exclaiming, "Are you surprised? Drama!"
Jon, who probably got about seven or eight minutes of screen time total in last night's episode (it's doubtful you'll hear too many complaints about that these days), welcomed back Mady and Cara from the beach so they could finish out their last few days of school. While Mady is typically pretty grating, it was hard not to love the kid a little bit for her horrified reaction to seeing her dad's pierced ears, shrieking, "What's in your ears?!" You're not the only one thinking it, sister...

Kate Gosselin broke down in tears during a Today Show interview Monday while describing why she still wears her wedding ring. Struggling to maintain her composure and using a tissue to dab at her eyes, the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom said she keeps the ring on to make the divorce transition easier for her children.
“Sorry,” she said as she started to cry. “I don’t want to upset them (the kids.) I don’t want to shock them.”
Kate was emotional during various points of the interview, but she tackled head on husband Jon’s new romance, denied an affair with her bodyguard and attacked her brother who has criticized her publicly.
She was clearly upset but shed no tears as she addressed the subject of Jon dating Hailey Glassman, the 22-year-old daughter of the doctor who performed Kate’s tummy tuck.
Asked about the fact that Jon has admitted to starting the relationship in May, well before the reality show couple’s June 22 divorce announcement, Kate said, “I was shocked.” She added: “It’s very hurtful. To be very honest the most hurtful part is when his decisions directly affect the children.”
But she saved her harshest words for her brother Kevin Krieder and his wife Jodi, who have spoken out repeatedly, most recently on the CBS Early Show, saying they believe the Gosselin kids are being exploited. “That’s probably one of the most hurtful thing in all ofthis when family turns on you and makes up lies,” Kate said. “This has become a business for them where they travel and speak on live TV shows with their allegations. This is a brother who I was very, very close to who became jealous.”
In the wide-ranging interview Kate denied a long-rumored affair with her bodyguard Steve Neild. “There is no affair. There never has been an affair,” Kate said. “We are very good friends with him, his wife and family.”
In the two-segment interview she admitted, “I wake up and I feel a lot of failure. This is not what any mother sets out for her children.”
She said she still loves the Jon “that I knew” but made it fairly clear that those feelings don’t apply to Single Partying Jon, the man who has dated Hailey, ex Star reporter Kate Major and had a late night sleepover with the babysitter recently.
She responded to Jon’s assertion that she gave up on the marriage saying that wasn’t true and “clearly we both have completely different takes on what happened between us but I feel like the details of that for the sake of my kids need to remain private.”
