Kate Leaves Dancing With The Stars, Kate On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Post GMA Interview

USMAGAZINE.COM: After five brutal weeks of dancing, Kate Gosselin was sent home packing on ABC's Dancing With the Stars Tuesday. The reality star, 35, and partner Tony Dolovani -- who had the lowest score, 15, on Monday's show -- were in the bottom two along with Pamela Anderson & her partner Damian Whitewood. When her name was announced, she was speechless. "I need a minute," she said as she wiped tears from her eyes.

Dolovani, 36, then spoke. Despite off-camera spats, he said he was "proud of Kate. I know she gets a lot of criticism out there ... She has eight kids and is a single mom ... she showed up every single day. I thought [she] danced beautifully." Gosselin then composed herself and said her ousting was "ok. I am very honored to have been here ... It was a good experience." She added, "I cannot wait to watch the rest of these people perform Monday ... I've really grown to love everyone." She finally thanked her fans for voting for her despite low scores from the judges. Said Gosselin, "Thank you for believing in me probably more than I believed in myself."

  1. I'm so sad Kate's going home! She worked so hard, and it's so sweet how she does the "I love you" to the kids. Well sorry to say, but I will not be keeping up with Dancing With the Stars any longer. It's not really my thing, but best of luck to all the dancers!

  2. Mignonne~ Did you see the post I left you thanking you for that link?

    Yeah, I'm trying to keep my eyes open to see them on Jimmy Kimmel Live.. Poor Tony, almost like 10 seasons of this show and he has yet to get a trophy. He so deserves it!

  3. I really enjoyed seeing Niecy with Kate last week on the Insider website, since she was soo nice and genuine with Kate, I am seriously considering giving her my future votes. There was a certain genuiness to her. I was estremely skeptical to watch because of what I saw back when Jon was on, but this was way different. I hope that Kate gets a chance to relax a little before the next project.

  4. Kate looks fantastic on Jimmy Kimmel right now! Those that dont see it I will def. post it tomorrow. Yes, I can't wait for her to be back on TV! But still miss those adorable kids the most.

  9. I think I love hot Tony!!! He was so nice to Kate tonight, I hope he wins next time.

  10. Really sad to see her go. Funny thing is I had this 'gut feeling' all day today, too. Even told my son before I headed out last night that I thought it was going to be the night she gets sent home. I really hoped otherwise (and after watching the show - was excited to see what her costumes would have been!)

    She did a great job - and Tony is truly a stand up guy, great dancer, and I give them both huge kudos for the work they did!

    Tom B was awesome, too. Big kudos to him for taking the time to give them a special goodbye moment!

  11. SG - As per my lost post, I labeled myself as a non-Kate fan. Yes, we watched DWTS only because Kate was on, and needed to see whats up with her career! I would have loved to see the kids much more but settled for Kate. Your question on the old thread asked if anyone here did not vote for Kate. I did not! Period! I am treating this show like a dance competition and we all know that Kate can't dance. So I voted for people that I wanted to save near the bottom four. Not the favorites near the top. It might be crazy but that's the way I did it. Maybe allot of other viewers are doing the same thing.
    As for Kate going home, I think it was her decision to leave, and that's why the kids came out for a few days. They made more news! JMO! The media blitze that went on got so negative that I feel she said enough is enough. Who would want the kids to see/or hear all that garbage? I wouldn't, and so she made the decision to go home! Since she was recording this show for memories, she stopped it at the perfect point.
    Now, does this make me a Hater?

  12. I am really curious to see the ratings next week for DWTS. I think the producers will be shocked!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think they will be, too. I know that I, for one, have already deleted my 'season pass' to DWTS. I never watched before and was only watching this season for Kate. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Question? Do all of the contestants participate in the DWTS tour?

    I'd buy tickets and go if Kate and Tony would be dancing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Good morning everyone! I wasa getting the kids ready for school, and I just saw the tail end of Kate and Tony on GMA. Boy did they look both sad, tired & defeated all at the same time. I changed it because it was really depressing to watch.

    I only have snippet of Jimmy Kimmel Live here, and as soon as I find the whole clip I will post it. They were so funny and upbeat last night. A total change from this morning..

    Last night the nation lost a reason to get excited about Monday nights, but remember she made it half way through, and I'm very proud of her for that!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hope I would buy tickets for that too! Tony did actually do the tour a few times. I have no idea if he's doing it this year, but it obviously wont be with Kate. I could only hear the American cries of outrage if she traveled the US without her kids..lol

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am only sad cause Kate was sad to go :(
    I am sure she was just starting to have fun but relieved at the same time! Can't wait for the new shows! Rock On Kate!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sorry I went to bed last night to pout but I just wanted to respond to SG and then I will leave it.

    I dont hate you, I dont hate anyone. The topic at the time was about the haters and trying to understand why they do what they do. Over the weekend someone sent me that link in a private message via Twitter and noticed your name when I read the comments, didnt think nothing of it. But then yesterday when you said you dont read them I guess I was confused. Someone did point out that you are a fan of the kids and thats why you post here which answered my question cause that makes sence. I'm sorry if you took it as an attack cause thats certainly not what I meant, I was simply asking a question on the topic at the time.



    Anyhow moving on...I was VERY sad for Kate last night, to see her so upset. But I do think it was her time and she knew it. I hope that what she gets from this is how many fans she really has, I hope she feels the love cause it finally gave us fans a voice to be heard. I am SUPER excited for the new shows coming up, cant wait to see those 8 cute little faces again :)

    I might still be a newbie, but nothing you have ever written on this site, would ever earn you a hater label. I've always known that you are here for the kids & if he's behaving Jon. I've long suspected you don't have a Kate shrine like some of us.(LOL) I may have totally missed something on the last post, but I did not see anyone here being accused of being malicious. Except JW, and that was me & I own that statement, she calls herself a Haterz Girl soooo if the name & the nasty behaviour fits??? Now, it was mentioned SG posts elswhere, I've personally only seen her post on what I do consider a hateful site twice...but I've only been there twice so I'm no expert, personally I'm glad SG is there she appears to be a voice of reason when accusations get outrageous. It seem's like the Kate debate, can bring out the best & the worst in people, let's keep all the best here.:) BTW I think your right the nose about rating's..I bet they will go down. I know my husband is delighted to have the remote,...that means everynight's Hockey Night In Canada at my house.*sighs*

  20. Sorry I guess maybe I should have addressed it to SG also...so I can talk to you, not about you. I think that's somtimes how thing can be misunderstood.

    ReplyDelete
  21. SG & PAR I am also not a fan, though I am not a fan of either parent. I have my reasons and they go back to interactions in their early days. Before they had any show. Started out pleasant but things changed. I'm not going to sit here on a fan site and bad mouth your idols because my reasons are my reasons. And I am sure I (an most of the high order multiples community around back then) would just be labeled haters.

    But honestly I don't hate them. I just find them funny. I disagree with most of their decisions. I see them as walking contradictions.

    I don't post here often because I'm not a fan. I don't really read here that often either. I was told today to come read because you guys were turning on your own (SG). While GWOP is so extreme with that mob mentality taking things farther and farther (to extreme for me though I have read there to see what they say time to time), this site can have the same trait in the opposite way. Here for most posters Kate can do no wrong. Everything can be excused, and anyone who says anything against Kate is a hater. Those that speak out about her publicly are flat out lying or the stories are made up. You would think with so many stories with a common thread about her coming out people would start to think that the truth is somewhere in the middle. Not everyone can be lying. Not every story can be made up. Not everyone can be turning on her. Not everything can be an exaggeration. Not everything can be explained about because she has 8 kids. I'm not saying everyone should dislike Kate. People have flaws. I just find it funny how everything is automatically dismissed usually as a lie or made up story. Or on the off occasion it can't be called a lie it is because she has 8 kids. Well she isn't the only one with 8 kids. I know several people with more than 8 kids including multiple sets of multiples (and a set of higher order multiples). Her case may be extreme but she isn't the only one. But they are the only ones that get these stories and people turning on them, etc. The only common thread is them. Maybe, just maybe they aren't showing the real "them" to the public.


    As for DWTS I would think the fans would be happier about he being off the show. It was nothing but fodder for the non-fans, haters, and comedians. Her last dance was barely any better than Buzz's. She seemed barely able to lift her leg up. She was hurting her image not helping it. I suspect many of you silently stopped voting for her out of mercy. You many not admit it but you did.

  22. Why do I feel like this sad thing has happened and everyone is so depressed? Lets try to think of positive things, things to come..anything. I guess I just need a pick me up!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am not sad anymore, I am happy she made it as far as she did :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Tasha - I feel a lot like you do about Kate and Jon etc. I just love the kids. I think the parents are opportunists and use their kids and it upsets me.

    BM - I bet they are exhausted! Up late and up early day after day. I didn't see the GMA interview. Will you post it? I bet Kate is relieved in a way to have one less stressful item to deal with! She has a lot on her plate even without DWTS.

    Off to work in the yard. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood! LOL

  26. Wow, all this tension is stressing me out..let's go back to talking about happy things shall we? My daughter & I are making Monkey Munch today..we do not have Chex in Canada. I usually use Quaker Oat Squares, does anyone have a suggestion for a cereal that is more like Chex?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well I for one am happy it's over. I love Kate and am so proud of the little housewife from PA. I never voted. DWTS was never my thing. I watched for Kate and I may be alone but I thought Monday was an improvement for Kate. She knew her steps and was engaged with her partner smiling almost the entire time. When it got down to her and Pam Anderson (who is infinitely the better dancer), I knew how it had to go. I'm relieved for Kate -- now she can go home and spend time with her kids and prepare for her next project. Being eliminated also took the wind out of Jon's latest legal claim. Way to go, Kate!! Not everyone makes it half way! Go out with your head held high!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I stopped watching DWTS around the 2nd one. I didn't vote for Kate the last 2 shows. I just thought she sucked, I really thought she was faking because she is so competitive and then we'd see her do a great dance and all be in awe. I was wrong. Oh, well. Been wrong before.

    I agree, she has flaws, so what? I do too, but it's not right to jump on her and rip her apart because she has flaws and just because she is on TV.

    Don't think I wouldn't do what I could if I had 8 kids to support and a hubby that not only is now absent, but isn't working. Sounds like he never worked much, but had to have his DADDY get him gigs.

    Whatever. I didn't see anybody attacking SG. I've come to understand her and hope she hasn't been ran off. SIGH.

    It's good Kate is gone, but honestly I only watched because she was on, I never watched it before anyways and she was so bad I couldn't sit thru the whole thing just to see her, then be so disappointed that she sucked so bad. HAHA.

    The network will see a dramatic drop in viewers. I do enjoy watchign her and don't mind when she's a drama queen or a bitch. I just like her, so sue me.

  29. I had mixed feelings about Kate going home; felt sad for her to be eliminated but seeing her so emotionally drained and exhausted because of Jon's idiot legal wranglings and becoming more fodder for haters as well as not being able to be home with the kids more, I understood how she felt at the end. She's had so much on her plate these last couple of weeks but I am so proud of her going as far as she did on DWTS and I knew all along that she'd last longer than just the first week or two.

    I do think that with the combination of most everyone else improving in the judges eyes and her regression this last week just tilted the overall scoring against her, even if all us fans voted for her. But I do think that some did not vote as before because they felt it was time to let her go.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am also so proud of Kate for growing as a person these last several months. She's learned several lessons of life (not just dancing, and that's quite an accomplishment for her) but learned from her past mistakes on how to be a better person. She's taken responsibility for her actions and her part in the breakdown of her marriage. She tries to take the high road but Jon still seems to find ways to push her buttons.

    Although she's felt so downtrodden and exhausted because of this public custody battle with Jon, she's still one classy lady and still has a reason to hold her head high.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Attacking is different than challenging. It's one thing to say, "You are a 'this and that'" and another to challenge what the person is saying or claiming. It doesn't mean that posters here are turning on each other.

    Also, there is definitely conflict among the non-fans. I won't quote but you know who you are if you wrote it. One minute they say, "The kids should not be on TV!" and the next, "I would love to see the kids!" Well, the only way anyone is going to see the kids is on TV... so which is it?

    Lastly, I indulge in this site ONLY and avoid all other sites, even if they are not considered hate sites. You find the hate even on TLC, with the haters posting comments on Kate's blog! I am guilty in reading some of those but all it does is leave me feeling so annoyed! So, I have to avoid them. It's interesting to me that we would spend so much time reading and commenting on other sites, besides this one. Truly, no offense to those who do this, but who has time for all that? And I'm sorry but to me, it just goes to show that "we" (including non-fans) have more fascination for this woman than we want to admit! Yes, the kids are absolutely adorable and entertaining but to haunt these sites "for the kids"... I'm not sure that I'm sold on that excuse.

  32. Tasha,

    Kate is not my Idol. I also do not find her to the villian she is made out to be. I am not a fan of Jon but I do not write post after post ragging on him. The people I find most objectionable are the ones that spend a considerable amount of time, effort, and energy posting trash about another human being.

    If you go to any of the sites that encourage people to post negativity about the Gosselins, you have had to have seen what I find objectionable:

    1) endless comments about Kate's weight, hair, clothing choices, etc. calling to mind the bitchiness and cattiness of girls in junior high;

    2) endless comments about what Kate should or should not do for living and how she should be content living a modest life style when there is no else in the public eye judged so harshly for their career choices and ambitions;

    3) the occassional but off-repeated comments suggesting that Kate is the worse mother in the world and the Gosselin kids live the most tragic life of any kids in America - what an insult to children that are truly neglected, abandoned and abused.

  33. I try not to jump on the miss-behaved band wagon, but here it goes.

    Just Wondering- Carry your a** back across the bridge. Not only do you pop in here to cause disrupt, but you link nasty sites to this blog. But the final straw was Monday, when you sent one of your Natzi Co-horts here to attack Baby Mama and threaten her. This is her blog and I try not to dictate, but, just go and live your life.

  35. This is Evan Lysacek's current facebook status:
    Kate Gosselin is such a sweetheart so it was tough to see her go last night on Dancing With The Stars. The whole cast is a little family so Tuesday's are really hard for us. At least the Lakers pulled out a win!

    Such a class act--I hope the kids got to meet him already or will in the future. I still hope they can catch Stars On Ice perhaps this weekend in Hershey.

  36. Re: Schmecky

    The question was posed, why did SG say she doesn't read or post on hate sites when she did post on the site listed by KatherineDenise? Schmecky answered (I believe) she doesn't believe it to be a hate site. So she didn't contradict herself, it simply is a difference of opinion of what constitutes a hate site.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hi BM been a long time follower of the show Jon + Kate 8. I have read lot of comments from here, GWOP, Rador, TMZ, but hardly ever commented. And it was hard for me to even comment here cause I am computer naive, lol.

    I would like to add that SG is writing "tactifully" as the other people have suggested. I am a fan of the "kids" most of all, but if a person has a sane mind, there is no WAY that Jon is the better parent. He is basically a happy go lucky guy who still have lot of growing up to do. If not for Kate, I TRULLY believe these kids are in deep knee trouble ahead.

    Yes, she is hard-headed but she at least provide STRUCTURE for the kids where Jon will not. I really like Jon, but he is so immature and has no directions. Any sane person can see that. Well, enough of the rant. I hope to follow the family and the kids as they grow up. My two cents.

    Finally, I just would like to add that SG is a good person IMO, but sorta like a "spy", I hope it's not too harsh a word, because I have seen some comments at the other hate site similar to SG. I'm sorry if i offended you SG, and please don't reply to my post. Thank you.

  38. JW-Ok. That is just why the entire post listed you as their reason for being here.

  39. Someone said they hoped Schmecky wouldn't be run off. Schmecky has always been able to hold her own, so I'm certain she isn't going anywhere. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Set in the Cleft - I will take credit for the statement of wanting to see the kids, but not wanting them on TV. Yes, I did contradict myself, all in the same post. That's what I get for writing when I am tired.
    Also, though a person can wish to see the kids but know in their hearts that it is not a good thing to have their whole childhood filmed. Thus, I wish them well in school and hope their parents will be more selective of whatever filming is done in the future. Now I hope that explains my position better.

    Momsby - thank you for your post earlier, I don't want you to think i skimmed over it. I bet everyone is tired today!

  41. SG said:

  44. I know that this is off topic but I also know that a few of you are Disney fans as well....Does anyone know if disney is going to run the same thing that they did last year with the free dining...We are planning a trip for the fall and I was hoping that they would

    ReplyDelete
  45. JW IS vile and I really enjoy deleting her. A roach that seems to want to come back for more. Whats the number for Terminex again?

    I'm confused, isn't there enough hate sites to go around? Why feel the need to show up here?

    PPPSSSSSSSSSTTTT Thats the sound of the Raid can.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hello Jane Welcome~ Disney has been doing the free dining plan during the slow season for several years now, and thats the case this year. The dining plan unfortunately gets more expensive and gives you less every year though! The codes I am aware of now start after August 14th, Schmecky may know of ealier codes for repeat guests, or guests that booked their trip last year for this year. For June there is a code for 30% off the room rate. However you cant use free dining with that. So its all what you prefer, and if its worth it for free dining or a cheap room rate. Sorry if that is confusing. But your answer is yes!

    It was cool to see Kate take advantage of bringing the kids to Disneyland! I hope they filmed it for one of the specials!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Thanks ,We are palnning for October so if you hear of anything let me know.....I am still the same old Jane just different picture but thanks for the Welcome anyway :)

  51. DWTS Cast Says Goodbye To Kate: E!Online

    Kate Gosselin may not be everyone's favorite reality mom, but the folks at Dancing With the Stars still insist they've got nothing but love for her.

    "I think she did great," DWTS contestant Evan Lysacek gushed outside of Madeo restaurant in Beverly Hills last night after the mom of eight was given the boot. "She's so sweet. We're like a family, so it's hard to see anyone go."

    Lysacek was joined at dinner by his ballroom partner, Anna Trebunskaya, and fellow dancing duo Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Erin Andrews.

    And who did we catch Ms. Gosselin hanging out with in West Hollywood just a couple of hours after her last performance? Gosselin hit restaurant RH at the Andaz hotel for a dinner prepared by executive chef Sebastien Archambault and former DWTS hopeful/soap stud Aiden Turner. Not only did Gosselin appear to get along with Derek Hough, Cheryl Burke and even Buzz Aldrin, but she was full of laughs yuckin' it up with a drag queen friend of—who else?—Pamela Anderson.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Great article glad she got out & had some fun. Is Aiden by any chance single?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Now I will say great for Kate, she is finally out and about having a good time. Ya know all single moms should do that at least once a month or so. I was never one to say she needs to stay home all the time. She needs to have fun with adults too! Go Kate and have one for me too! Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I was watching back some shows from this morning and on Live with Regis and Kelly, Kelly Ripa said she voted for Kate every week on DWTS and that she is a big Kate fan and considers her a good friend and was sad to see her go. Kate will be on the show on Friday with Tony for a last dance. Its so nice to see all these women stick together for the other Mom who is just trying to provide. Sherri and Elizabeth on The View this morning again defended Kate and showed much support. Brooke Burke as we know really liked Kate on the show and cant wait to have a playdate with the kids. So its good to see Mom's and women stick together.



    I have alittle feeling (ok maybe not) but seriously if Aiden Turner is single how cute would they be?? Didnt she make a comment in the very beginning how good looking she thought he was?

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think Aiden is married and he and his wife just recently had a baby...

    ReplyDelete
  56. Aiden is married with a baby girl. It is on his IMDB page. I think they actually showed the baby one week too. Plenty of other good looking single men on DWTS though;)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Did anyone hear about Whoopi going off about Kate? I thought it was way over the top!! Kate has been on The View and sat at the table and for Whoopi to disrespect her by calling her an angry bitch was to much!! Whoopi needs to grow up and learn when to keep her mouth shut!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Say it isn't so- Yes, I seen it. It was completely uncalled for in my opinion. I do not know what Whoopi's problem is. That is just like her saying she has a grudge. I wonder if Whoopi knows the definition of grudge. Kate never did anything to her and I am disgusted with Whoopi's behavior.

    In fact I am sending an email to ABC to voice my disgust with Whoopi's mouth. She is getting as bad as Rosie O'Donnell.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Whoopi was a little bit kinder about Kate today. BW was on..I don't know if that was the difference. Thanks for the info about Aiden guys.I'm just glad she had a big person night out.

    BM..so funny, my DH just told me he's been trying to organize a weekend in Toronto for us to see Rock of Ages. I had not heard much about it until today. I'm hoping it works out because single & couple parents need adult time ;0

  60. Good Evening Everyone! Momsby~ We will be going next Tuesday now after a crazy re-scheduled evening. But I still got to go out and not be a mommy for the night and we had a blast! So excited for next week, my girlfriend has seen the show twice so after hearing such great reviews I am very excited.

    So even though I got back late I wanted to add the GMA interview, and basically every video you haven't seen in the sun. lol. Yes Im a video queen. If it slows you up on getting to my site let me know. But people seem to prefer them rather than me writing.

    Radar has another exclusive backstage interview with Kate. That Radar. If you want to see check it out.. http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/04/exclusive-video-interview-kate-gosselins-reacts-elimination-reveals-kids-upset

    I tired to look for other Kate info other than her departure from DWTS. Was still trying to see if she is still in CA enjoying it with the kids or if shes back home. TMZ says she's in the same hotel as Obama!

  62. I don't think they filmed the kids at DL -- in every pic or video that's been online (the one made by the kid who followed them comes to mind) - there were no TLC or other pro cameras seemingly around - so I really doubt that trip will be one of the specials?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hey - I just read this over on MSNBC. It was mixed in with an article about Melissa Bowersox from AI. I actually clicked on the link to this instead of the one I was wanting to go read - but hadn't heard the news of Jon having a 'new love interest' in DC until this??

    "Now, Jon is interested in another woman, one who can support him while he’s strapped for cash. “He has a new 40-something, Washington, D.C., love interest,” a Gosselin insider told Us Weekly. “She’s rich — and he’s hoping to have her back one of his projects.”"

  65. OMG! Just got these tweets from Jon... Is he kidding??? I mean it's great he wants to work things out but he's going up against Kate AND her ATTORNEYS without his own attorney. What an idiot. We'll probably hear from him six months from now that he wants to change custody because he didn't have an attorney present. (Start from the bottom up):

    jongosselin1 Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably.

    Really? Well at least she's over 30. Maybe she has more to offer Jon (besides money of course). I'd love to know what she looks like and what she is looking for in a relationship with Jon.

    Why can't Jon stay away from women for a while? (If it's true, that is.)

  68. Hahaha -- SG and I must've been posting about the same time!

    GMTA! :)

    G'morning SG! Hope you're having an awesome morning! :)

    I, too, cannot believe what he is doing. Along with my earlier post about him having a new love interest - then these tweets - I was like OMG! Here we go AGAIN with him!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Honestly, I think it's great that Jon and Kate want to work out things amicably but for Jon to not have representation is ridiculous. I don't even know what to say... or think.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Wasn't there some rumor about him with a red head in the DC area awhile ago? I'm vaguely remembering that?? However - I'm also thinking that woman turned out to be some writer or something who was going to help him pen a book? Something like that?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yeah - from my own personal experience - I would think that the ONLY way they'd really be able to work out something amicable, legal, and longstanding for the KIDS sake would BE for the attorney's to handle it? I mean sure they can agree - and amicably agree to find a place where they are both happy with the end result - but do it THROUGH their attorneys!

    I wonder why Jon fired yet another attorney?

    ReplyDelete
  72. The only thing I can think of is Kate's attorney probably said they'd work with Jon so why should he pay court/attorney fees, etc. Jon, the idiot, agreed.

    Jon obviously didn't want FULL custody. He just wanted more time with them. Supposedly. Maybe he had other reasons?

    I really don't know. I started writing out some speculation/theories but I hate to start on theories when we have no facts so... We'll see.

    Maybe they just did 50/50 custody and he figures it is cut and dry? But what about his new apt having room for the kids? He doesn't plan to take them there? He's going to continue custody days at the Gosselin home?

    ReplyDelete
  73. I need to see a clip of that last dance, I missed it. I just couldn't sit thru the whole show to see her.

    ReplyDelete
  74. LOL Tony's still tweeting. Does anyone care now that he's not with Kate? I wonder if he will get as many replies as he has the past month or so.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I know. SInce we really have no idea what their original agreement was - hard to even speculate at what changes he was asking for.

    My own personal speculation is that they made some sort of agreement that gave Jon X number of days each month with the kids. Kate probably had the final say so on when those would be. That, at the time, worked well for Jon because his thought process was about either being with Hailey in NY - or later - being in UT with the other girl - and he wanted a more flexible visitation schedule because of his own wants/needs.

    My speculation as to now - I'm not sure. Part of me thinks that he was down on his love luck, and in his own personal pity party, decided to take it out on Kate (because she has clearly moved on and seems to be doing very well) --- and that's the 'misery loves company' portion of my thought process. I also think there's a chance that he was down on his love luck and missed the kids and was bored with life - and realized he could be spending it WITH his kids. THEN - there's the thought process that all of this is money related on his part. The "I'll go after custody of the kids to lower my child support" - or to use custody as a leverage tool to get his child support lowered. Again, just my own speculation.

    I wish I could believe he was truly trying to do the right thing - but the best indicator we have is based on his recent past behavior - and he hasn't shown the kids as his number one priority in a LONG time. :(

  76. Jon's tweets were in reply to this from TMZ:

    Jon's lawyer, Anthony List, tells TMZ, "'Dancing with the Stars' is just the tip of the iceberg for Kate, as surely there will be many other projects to take its place soon."

    List notes ... Kate has already signed on for two new shows -- both on TLC. And, he scoffs, "She's always promoting something ... and most of the time it's herself."

    ReplyDelete
  77. Good morning everyone! Jons lawyer what a twit. What is exactly wrong with promoting something, and if it's not herself who is she going to promote? Jon? Her kids?

    Ohh wait, if she promotes her kids shes attacked for being a fame whore and a bad parent. The more I think about it, I'm glad that shes home. Lets see what the haters have to say now about her being with her kids and taping it for the specials...

  79. What did Tony tweet?

    Lots of confusing news about Jon. I thought List was a friend of his fathers and he elping Jon from a sense of obligation. Was Jon paying him? If not, can he fire him? and Probably most importantly, why is List sill talking to the press if it is against Jon's wishes?

    Pure speculation here but I see a variety of possibilities:

    1) it struck me that List speaking out against Kate when Jon settled with TLC not to talk to th press was violating the spirit of the agreement if not the letter of it. Perhaps, TLC was threatening to argue in court that this did violate the agreement and so Jon is trying an end run around it. List still speaks out but Jon makes it known he fired List and the lawyer is not speaking for him. The negativity about Kate still gets out there though.

    2) Jon seems to be trying to improve his relationship with TLC. I suspect he realizes that is his most likely avenue for getting back on television - either on TLC or with TLC's blessings elsewhere. He twittered against what was said at the hearings last week and now he is distancing himself from another attack lawyer.

    They will just say it is probably in their contracts to have to say something nice. Then they will study any video they can find of Jake, Evan, etc talking about Kate and argue that the body language reveals the "truth."

    I am more curious about how they explain away the support of her mother and sister through DTWS.

    ReplyDelete
  81. PAR: Good points.

    Hadn't thought of the possibility that this is all an angle - that Jon 'fires' the attorney so that the attorney can 'speak out' all he wants and it not affect Jon's agreement with TLC? Gosh - wow.

    List was supposedly a good friend of Jon's dad - and was there for Jon for that very reason - as a friend of the father?

    Isn't Anthony List, Jr also an attorney? The TMZ article just says "Anthony List" -- and Jon's tweet was SPECIFIC to say "Anthony List, SR is not my attorney...."

  84. LOL – Schmecky & Hope – we were on the same wavelength, a possible scary thought.

    Earlier I was going to post about Jon’s attorney List who was on Nancy Grace last night speaking out as a “Family Law” specialist in the missing child case, Haleigh Cummings. I was going to say I’m glad at least Jon’s attorney is a specialist in Family Law. Family Law was a specialty noted in order as: Criminal Law, Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice, Family Law, and Estate Law. It seems to hit the areas of drug charges and homicide representation higher but may have no signficance.

    Now’s Jon’s already fired him?

  86. Cindy~ My last post before this one has Kates dance. All my my posts have at least one video on it sadly...

    Kate does not have a Facebook Page. They are all fake, she only posts on that TLC blog. She has said many times she doesnt have the time. Jon had one. Until he was on Haliey's page and then they both shut them down. Too many people attacking them. So only fans put up pages now. None are real.

    Tony's personal FB page was set to private, but he has a fan page.

  88. Baby Mama,

    Imperfect Women claim that Kate's mother and sister have a Facebook page and that they support Kate, etc. I'd like to know how they know it is real and not some imposters. There are really good fakes out there. Some fans could post as them trying to show that Kate does have family support. I was just wondering how it was confirmed they are real. I don't believe it until it is confirmed by Kate.

  89. I was under the impression that her sister did but her mom didn't. I have no idea. I did see those photos and were wondering if they were there on that particular day visiting the kids. If thats the case, the parents have seen the kids at the house.

  92. SG,

    There was a Facebook page during DWTS - supporting Kate on the show. Charlene Kreider and Clarissa (?) Kreider Something (?) were on the friends list or whatever they call the list when it is not a person but a "page." I believe it was truly them - clicking on them led to profiles that were mostly private but indicated they were from different places in PA. The picture of her Mom is a childhood/teenage picture. The picture of the sister is relatively current and I have seen her before - I think in pictures that GWOP people were getting off of Jaime Ayers Facebook page last summer.

    In her Natalie Morales interview, Kate did indicate that she had one sister that supported her and one of the necklaces she wears was confirmed as a gift from her sister who makes jewelry.

    I also believe that at least one of the moderators at Imperfect Woman has connections to the Gosselins. A few months back, she got a private interview with Jon that was posted on their blog.

    I believe the Facebook is legitimate.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hope,

    I'm not surprised by all the nice things said about Kate from the DWTS stars. I think Kate is very capable of being nice, especially to celebrities. In fact, I'd be surprised if she wasn't nice to them.

    I do wonder why they didn't come out and do the "group hug" at the end that Tom the host invited them to do. I also noticed Cheryl's reaction in the background when they said something nice about Kate. She seemed not so thrilled. But I could be reading into it.

    ReplyDelete
  94. PAR,

    I'm sorry, but I'm still wary of the Facebook page. Especially since you said, "The picture of the sister is relatively current and I have seen her before - I think in pictures that GWOP people were getting off of Jaime Ayers Facebook page last summer".

    That just shows that someone could have saved the pic from there to later use for the purpose of impersonating them.

    And why didn't they link it? If they are posting "private" messages it doesn't seem like they are worried about keeping things private and personal.

    Just my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  95. SG- LOL:) You are to funny. She could be Nana's Nana.

    My only question is Nana Joan was Jon's babysitter as a boy. So, I wonder who was there when Nana Joan was. I did not see any pictures of Kate in there.

    ReplyDelete
  96. The "Support Kate on DWTS" Facebook page is down. So they can't link to the page they quoting from any longer.

    Why do you think it is so unbelievable that her Mom and sister support Kate?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Wasn't there a recent discussion here on the divorce time line? It seems like piecing the story together - many of Kate's non-fans believe that Kate went to Jon around October of '08 saying the marriage was over. This still puts it after the filming of the renewal vows (August 08) but before those episodes aired (November 08). There is also a belief that marriage was over before they moved into the new house which was the fall of 2008.

    Unless I am misreading something, if Jon truly said this to Stephanie, it calls into question the timeline.

  98. Hi all - New to this blog but I'm so glad I found it! It's nice to read things from level headed people as opposed to the horrible things that come from such hate filled people out there. I adore Kate and it's nice to finally see a celebrity...or anyone...accept personal responsibility for themselves & mistakes they've made. And then humble herself enough to change. It's refreshing not to hear someone blame shift and make excuses like "I have an addiction". Kudos to Kate for having integrity & walking it all out with grace! And I'm extremely sad that she's not on DWTS anymore...those shows are for people like her who have no dance/performance experience & ability. I think she was finally having some fun!

    ReplyDelete
  99. The curiosity was killing me. This might be confusing but I will try to explain.

    Facebook page for Charlene Kreider:
    http://www.facebook.com/search/?q=Clarissa+Kreider&o=2048&init=ffs#!/profile.php?id=71602217

    I did a search for a picture of Charlene Kreider. This ladies picture from the facebook page above, keeps coming up with Kate's pictures. One website said Charlene's picutr was on the LVC.edu website. I clicked the link, but it had been taken down.
    The Charlene Kreider above has a friend on her facebook named Karen Kreider. She mentions LVC on her post. So, I am thinking, this might be the true Charlene Kreider.

    Don't know, just a thought.

  100. Now I don't know. She mentions Minneapolis. So, maybe my whole theory blows. LOL :)

    ReplyDelete
  101. PAR,

    I didn't say that I don't believe her mom and sister support her. I'm just skeptical that it was their Facebook page and I question how real that private message is. That's all. I have no idea whether or not her mother or sister support her. Although I found it odd that Kate said her parents were not in the childrens' lives and that they had Nana Joan and Nana Janet as "pseudo-grandparents" (wording and quotes mine, not Kate's, because I don't remember how she worded it).

    As for what Stephanie Santoro claims... Jon himself had said the last time was August 2008... but I don't remember where I read that. Actually I think I heard him say it in a media appearance.

    As for why Santoro is even discussing that... I have no idea. And why now? Was it an old interview that resurfaced?

    I went back to abc.com and watched the end again. Tom actually said, “This is normally when we invite you to do a last dance, but I think it’s going to be more like a group hug.” To me that isn’t an invitation but more of a reflection of how much everyone in the cast and crew truly did like Kate. It’s not that he invited them to come down and hug her and they didn’t. And the only thing I could see that Cheryl made a could-be-construed-as-something-minor-maybe-if-you-are-looking-for-something-face, was when Kate called herself a “cry baby”.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Completely false rumors really bother me, so much so that I wanted to post here since I've seen the rumor about "no hug" several times and I know a lot of people read this blog:

    There IS A GROUP HUG.

    I watched the episode on Hulu.com since I missed it when it broadcast on Tuesday.

    www.http://www.hulu.com/watch/143818/dancing-with-the-stars-week-five-results

    go to 43:29 - that's when you can see the group hug. Everyone's on the floor with them at that point.

    ReplyDelete
  104. So there WAS a group hug with Kate? It wasn't a "false rumor". They didn't show it on tv that night, at least I didn't see it. Maybe they have footage of it elsewhere now. That link didn't work.

    wildchild,

    Yes, I did say that I could have been reading into it (the look on Cheryl's face).

  105. I mean, I assume that's what people mean by a "group hug." All the other contestants were surrounding them and taking turns to hug them. I guess they're not all linking hands and singing kum bai ya. LOL.

  107. I think the 'hug' thing happened differently because they didn't do their exit video. I think the normal 'cue' for the others to start heading down is during the time they play the exit video. Since that didn't get played - I think the other cast members were unsure of what to do - and so the 'hugs' happened at a later point.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I think when it was broadcast, they cut to the commercial before the hug was shown. AT least, that is what I gather since I only watched in online.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Helen, an even better point!
    Thanks for the hulu link, there was a huge group hug! I mean there wasn’t a snub to begin with because Tom never actually “invited” them to have a group hug, but it was nice to see that there was one.

  112. So now Jon is claiming that he never wanted to file for Full Custody! That his lawyer did that on his own. His lawyer says Jon signed off on everything he filed. What the heck is WRONG with Jon!?!??!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  113. Jon Gosselin is lashing out at the lawyer he just fired .... claiming the attorney filed legal papers asking for primary custody without Jon's permission.

    Gosselin tells TMZ, "I never wanted primary custody, he [attorney Anthony List] filed for that. I only wanted a more flexible custody schedule so I could be with my kids."

    But List tells TMZ, "Jon signed off on everything."

    Jon, who is pissed that List spoke with the media, insists he wants to pay child support, adding, "I just can't afford the $22,000 a month right now. That is why I'm trying to find a job."

    As for what type of job ... Jon says, "I would like a job in some aspect of TV, probably as a host."

    Well, if Kate can dance ...

    (Notice he speaks on Video... I guess TLC is behind this somehow because they gave him permission to speak to the media.)

    Well I won't cry a river over Hailey but, if it is true he owes her the money, it says a lot about Jon's character and intelligence. I think he got in way over his head with the Hailey Glassman and the Hellmans. They had him convinced he was going to be David and take on the Goliath of TLC and walk away with millions. Unfortunately, he spent money he didn't have.

    I agree. Just funny though that she tweeted those pics of Jon's supposed ***** and she expects him to hand over her money? I don't blame him for making her fight for it. It's not like he cares if his "image" looks bad or like he has the money so she will probably have to sue him.

    ReplyDelete
  126. My initial reaction to reading Jon's tweets this morning(before I came on here) was why was he sending the tweets out this morning if he fired the lawyer on April 15? I just thought the timing was interesting given Kate is now off DWTS. Again, I hadn't read the other comments on here yet--just my initial thoughts.

    I still don't follow Hailey or any of Jon's exes on twitter--I don't understand why Hailey blocks her tweets as she is clearly not trying to hide anything.

    Did anyone catch Showbiz Tonight on HLN last night? AJ and Brooke were talking to two women about Kate and whether she is now a winner or a loser. I think the 2 women were industry reporters(did not catch their names). One woman said she actually has met Kate several times as she's been covering DWTS and called her a sweetheart. The 2nd woman clearly hated Kate yet had no good reason as to why. Every point she made was combatted by the woman who had actually met Kate and even Brooke and AJ jumped in and defended Kate. Brooke actually said she's interviewed her as well. So, no matter what any of the other 3 said, the "hater"(as AJ called her) clearly had something negative to say. I thought it was incredible and made me think back to the article Baby Mama posted the other day. It was just bugging me after I watched--to see someone with such negativity w/o justification.
