Kate Gosselin is Back On The Cover of People! Kate Gosselin Tears Off Skirt for huge DWTS Finale!

DWTS: Kate Gosselin Is Back...Need We Say More?! E!Online.com
Just when you thought the dancin' queen had left the ballroom, Kate Gosselin reemerged in full force at tonight's Dancing with the Stars finale. Did her smooth moves take your breath away again, or was it too much, too soon? All we know is that her onetime partner Tony Dovalani said she was "very excited" to be back. Before Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough danced away with the big win, Kate graced the stage one last time. And she loved it! "It was a mish-mosh, that's what I was called," Kate joked after the results. "Honestly, it was so much fun because it didn't matter anymore."Which begs the question, did it ever really matter? Kate was quick to correct reporters when asked about the upcoming return of Jon & Kate Plus 8, but did spill some fun stuff ahead. "Kate Plus 8, presto chango! The kids and I went away on a birthday adventure—my six turned six. I'm old," she teased. "And then we have Twist of Kate. That is a show that is just me, not including the kids. I'm very excited to get that on the road."

Being the diplomatic megamom she is, Kate refused to proclaim happiness for Nicole's win, telling us: "For me it was going to be hard whoever won because I love all of them, and I'm very neutral. It's just difficult. I wish everyone could have won. It's like picking a favorite child--I just can't."(Come on, Kate. We all know your fave is Alexis...kidding!)

Kate Gosselin Tears Off Her Skirt For Dancing Return: UsWeekly.com

Saucy! For her encore performance on Tuesday's Dancing with the Stars finale, a smiling Kate Gosselin revamped her notorious "Paparazzi" routine. When the music segued into disco classic "I Will Survive," partner Tony Dovolani ripped off her skirt to reveal a sparkly micro skirt beneath. The number ended with the 35-year-old mom ascending high into the air on a platform; a close-up camera caught her giggling awkwardly. PHOTOS: Look back on Kate's tumultuous DWTS days Despite much-documented friction with Dovolani during her run on the show, Gosselin said before her dance, "for the record, Tony, I heart you," tracing a heart shape with her fingers. In rehearsal footage, the reunited pair clashed over how to rework their routine. "I wanted to make it more difficult becaue that's really who I am," she explained -- but then balked when Dovolani suggested to saunter up to the judges. "I'm afraid to do that part!"

Sighs a frustrated Dovolani: "it's one thing saying ing you want something, it's a whole other thing to do it." As they practiced, the 35-year-old reality star surmised: "I would guess that 90 percent of my audience doesn't like me. I'm so controversial." PHOTOS: Kate's grumpiest faces Of her dancing skills? "I could stand there in the middle of the floor and people would [still] judge me. It doesn't matter if I did a Nicole [Scherzinger] or Evan [Lysacek] performance," she adds. "I would still get picked apart to pieces -- so I might as well have fun with it." The Kate Plus 8 and Twist of Kate star adds: "I would really like America to see the real me. Just doing my best, laughing at myself."

  1. I love Kate, I truly do, but I just cringed when I saw her dancing again....LOL Hey, I have to give it up to her though, she does NOT stop or give up!! Love that about her!

    Excited to see the new shows and to read the People article. Wow, do Cara and Mady look so grown up in that picture!!!

  2. Bee~ where have you been? I haven't seen you in forever! Please don't be a sranger!

    I just fixed the video. It's been so great to see the kids again. Did you see how big Aiden got? I swear I feel like a proud aunt. I forgot how much I missed those kids ;)

  3. Hello~
    First of all, I wanted to tell you that your blog is beautiful and I love reading it everyday. You speak so nicely of the Gosselin family (except for Jon but... Well... I kind of emphasize with you about it sometimes.) I'm sorry, my english must be bad, but I'm just a french student who is learning english and I'm not very good. It's for this reason I never commented before.

    Cara and Mady look older in this picture. They have grown up so much in a few months... It's a bit scary. It's the same for the little kids. They are not even babies anymore, sadly.

    Everybody look happy on this picture. I can't wait to see this amazing family on TV!

    Have a nice day, Baby Mama and keep up your magnificient work with this blog!

  4. Salimachan~ your english is VERY good! I found only one teeny tiny error, which puts you above everyone else who posts here! LOL and it's alllllllllways the iPhone's fault ;-)
    Well except for Schmeckygirl, she's good with grammar and spelling too :-)

    ReplyDelete
  5. salimachan~ welcome. I feel bad sometimes of my treatment of Jon. Every time I try to get on his side he does something that hurts my spirit. I think of how Kate would feel I guess. His name is still on the title though and this is still a site that supporters of Jon can come to and discuss the family..

    Robin~ hi! I am very bad with grammar. So bad there are blogs that discuss it. Its called rushing for me.. I know everyone gets fustrated, but my nails get in the way! lol

    ReplyDelete
  6. Bonjour salimachan! French is a beautiful language. I'm jealous.

    Yes, I am a grammar queen, I can't help it, but I don't hold anyone's grammar against them. Except when they say Supposably. lol.

    The kids really are getting big! But I'm sorry, they photoshopped those pics. Half of them don't even look like them! I think they are much prettier/cuter in the paps pics.

  7. Thank you for fresh paper, Baby Mama.
    -----------------
    salimachian - welcome! We're so glad you finally posted. Please post often.
    -----------------
    Robin - guess you don't have an iPhone or you'd understand the frustration. Not only does it autocorrect what it itself chooses to be the right word, you can't see the whole screen of the typing area, nor does it give you scroll bars when you choose edit. Oh well, guess we can't all be perfect.

  8. The only place Kate needs to know how to dance is the happy two-step into the bank to deposit her check, lol.

  9. I read a comment on ROL just now (reminded me why I don't normally read the comments) and some crazy people are acting like it's an insult to say that the kids look photoshopped on the cover. What's wrong with saying that?

    I think Mady and Cara are beautiful young girls and the photoshopping they did on that cover does not do them justice.

    Doesn't anyone else think they look different/photoshopped? Hannah and Joel look different too. IMO.

  10. Interview with Kate:

  11. The kids look so grown up. At first I though the 3 "little" girls, and Joel did not look photoshopped, but I do think its a great picture. Cara and Madi look soooo cute and grown up!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Schmecky~ I agree, I think a lot of the paparazzi pics of they kids that we have seen lately are much cuter.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thank you for your kind welcome, everyone.

    Baby Mama~ I feel the same about him. Sometimes I try to trust him but his actions are not always very nice toward his family.

    Robin~ I try my best, thank you!

    Linda "Original"~ I will, thanks.

    SchmeckyGirl - I envy the people who speak english, because french is a very complicated langage and yours is so simple (a lot of french are jealous of english~!). But I'm happy you find it beautiful.
    Now that you're saying it... It's true that the kids look a bit photoshoped. Mostly Cara in my opinion. It's sad to change their cute faces with photoshop... I mean that they are beautiful without this.

    ReplyDelete
  14. If Kate was photshopped then I'm getting one of myself for our Christmas Card. Why didn't I think of that sooner!

    ReplyDelete
  15. LOL momsby!

    Actually I don't think the pic of Kate was photoshopped. I think Joel, Mady, Cara and Hannah were. I also think they did a disservice to their beautiful little faces.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have no idea if the pictures were photoshopped - it is pretty typical for magazine covers so they probably were.

    I will never prefer the paps pictures though - they seem so intrusive to the kids.

  17. A new "Kate's Take" up today!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wildchild~ thanks for keeping us posted when Kate blogs. I always forget to check and she's actually posting much more now!

    Momsby~ you are so funny. You and I will both be using photoshop for our Holiday cards then. Looking fantastic is the best revenge!

    Schmecky~ The kids look great, but I think this goes back to the Good Housekeeping cover. When your shooting so many faces at once and you can't find that perfect shot, well they make it up. Perfect example, the DVD cover from the season with the wedding. OMG, that was embarassing the hatchet job they did putting that photo together! But Mady and Cara look adorable. It's great to see this shot because the kids look so grown up! I feel like a year of their life was taken away from me..hehe

    I remember when I had my baby 2 years ago and I started this blog. I was going through such a horrible depression, and starting to write about the show as a fan took me out of my funk. This Sept. my baby is starting pre pre school, or basically a child separation. Just thinking about it makes me want to cry. Has it really been 2 years already?? crazy!

  19. Yesterday was soo busy I forgot to say that my tshirt came in. It is beautiful, if it was in my size I would love wearing it and the box is really nice.
    I am really proud of Kate, she hasn't given stoked Jon's fire by reacting publicly to the pictures with the the kids and Jon's girlfriend. The one thing that I think helps them is that they are used to dealing with many different people. I also think that the older kids to a point know and accept their dad for who he is. Some kids can accept their parent's romantic escapades because they know that is just how the parent is and they don't take it personally. It helps if they are getting more stable emotional relationsips from other places such as with Mom. I am also sure that they have been speaking with Kate frequently on the phone and telling her everything. She is probably reassuring them. I am glad that Jon has a home that they can visit at. I think it would be very awkward for them to be with his girlfriend at Kate's house. The thin I don't care for at all is Jon's timing and how openly it seems he is trying to stab Kate with the help of the paparazzi.

  20. Just a reminder for everybody to check your DVRs and set them to record Kate Plus Eight since it won't record automatically if you had Jon and Kate Plus Eight set to do so.

  22. Tashapork...thanks for letting me know that! I gotta do that with my DVR..

    Wildchild~ thanks I always love reading fun blogs that don't have to do with either Kate Hate or copying this blog..hehe your the best!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks for the blog link wildchild.

    I would guess that the photos are photoshopped. It will be hard to tell until the programs being airing.

    Most of what we saw on TLC was filmed a year ago so I'm sure they have grown a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Momsby and Baby Mama - Hey GFs. I can photoshop your photos for you! ;)
    So much is photoshopped today that I always save the original photo (called a raw photo), screenshot, etc. and then make a duplicate if it is to be photoshopped. That way I always have the original untouched photo that is time and date stamped.

  27. I laughed my butt off last night at Kate and Tony (in a good way) it was so nice to see her smile like that. Moving day is upon me so I will try to keep up with you on my phone. Sometimes it doesn't like blogger! Wish me luck!

  31. Hey I may not have 700 posts, but I know a good protest when I see one! I kid I kid.. I feel that people just look to stir things up just to get their own blogs out there. I will never submit to the Death Star.

    Funny Access Hollywood on the link!

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
    Kate Gosselin ended her return to “Dancing with the Stars” on Tuesday night by being hoisted high upon a crane, and the mom of eight told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson that the feat was an easy sell. “Whose idea was the crane?” Shaun asked.

    “That would be the show’s idea,” Kate explained. “I got a random phone call on my way out here and it was, ‘Hey, would you be willing to fly?’ and I said, ‘Do you mean like ‘Mary Poppins’ on Broadway?’ and they were like, ‘Well, yeah kind of.’ Fortunately, it was.”

    Tony Dovolani, Kate’s Season 10 “Dancing” partner, said Kate was absolutely gung-ho about accepting the “flying” challenge. “She’s a daredevil, this chick,” he told Shaun. “What people don’t realize is we had a blast this week. We were interrupting other practices more than we practiced ours.”

    “And we got in trouble for laughing,” Kate chimed in. “We can’t win.” “You’ve been really good,” Tony continued. “You’ve been really good. Actually, she’s taught me how to do interviews.”

  36. Hey My2Girls, how are you? The blog is quiet this morning, where is everybody? lol

    Now, I'm aware this one was old from Radar.com (May 14th) but I never realized Kate went to Discovery Cove in Florida with the kids. I have always wanted to go there. How the heck did Radar get pictures in a private place like this? Anyway I really want to go there now that the kids apparently had such a great time!

  37. Here is an interesting link that contradicts all the "insider" reports about the cast and crew hating Kate. Note that it is not Kate saying they text all the time.

    http://thebosh.com/archives/2010/05/pam_anderson_kate_gosselin_text_all_the_time.php

    I wonder how certain hate site posters will deal with this news. When Tony defended Kate and denied those reports, they alternately decided he was too professional to tell the truth or was getting something from TLC to lie.

    They eleviated Pam Anderson to status of Mom of the Year (overlooking anything Pam may have done) and revelled in reports that she hated Kate. I guess poor Pam will be brought down a peg or two (or hundred) in their eyes for daring to like Kate.

    Whaaaaaaaaaah!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Tigger - I wish it were 8 pm also. Our kids loved J&K+8 and we watched it together. Having it at 9 pm on a Sunday makes it hard. Guess I'll tape it and for them to watch on Mondays.

  44. What's everybody doing for Memorial Day weekend? So many in our neighborhood left this morning it looks like a ghost town, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Linda~ We were supposed to go away but now we may stay home. We were supposed to go to Hershey but the rooms are insane at $365 a night at the Lodge. Is it normally that much? With the Disney trip at the end of the Summer, it looks to be low key with the movies separately for me (Sex & the City) and my kids (Shrek 3D).

    FYI as of Monday it looks like I can text again lol yay me! ;)

  46. OPPS I forgot to show you the preview that was sent to me. Check this out!

    TLC AIRS BACK-TO-BACK “KATE PLUS 8″ SPECIALS ON SUNDAY, JUNE 6 AT 9 AND 10 PM
    On Sunday, June 6, Kate Gosselin and her loveable brood are back in two KATE PLUS 8 specials airing at 9 and 10 PM. Starting at 9PM, Kate plans a surprise trip to Orlando for the kids to celebrate the sextuplets’ 6th birthday. As she prepares for her first trip with the kids as a single mom, Kate attempts to keep everything a surprise while managing logistics and containing the inevitable chaos. Highlights include the kids feeding sting rays at Discovery Cove, swimming with the dolphins, feeding exotic birds, riding in an air boat and taking in the sights of the Everglades, partaking in an orange juice squeezing contest, and enjoying a very special surprise birthday cake.

    At 10 PM, TLC gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look into the daily life of the newly single Kate in “Inside Kate’s World”. After the abrupt ending of JON & KATE PLUS 8, a lot has happened quickly for the famed mother of eight. From extreme hair makeovers to single-motherhood to Dancing with the Stars and press tours, this special provides a unique, never before seen glimpse into the day-to-day routine of the single mother, entrepreneur, best-selling author, dance partner and friend. With input and special guest interviews from TV personalities, journalists, and first time interviews with those who know Kate best and have been in the media spotlight with her along the way, viewers will find out exactly what Kate has been up to in the recent months, and what’s truly driving her ambitions."

  47. Baby Mama - thanks for sharing the update.

    Good luck with getting your texting back. I'd be lost without it. To me, along with the movie camera emails to & from oldest children, it's the best part of the phone. Took me a long time to get used to the keyboard and I detest the auto correct. It's great to have the email access without plugging in the computer.

  48. What the heck is it with men and cars? Can somebody explain that? I just don't get it. To me, a car has 4 wheels and rolls. If it's clean and maintained I don't care what it looks like or how old it is. I don't care whether it's an SUV or van or sports car or truck. My concern is safety and can we fit everybody into it. Is there something I'm just not getting here?

    ReplyDelete
  49. SchmeckyGirl - two questions.
    1. If you are sending questions about elephants, I need them by Tuesday. Should I look for something from you?
    2. This may be dumb but I just don't know. Can you wear the 3D glasses if you already wear glasses? One if mine has corrective lenses and I don't know if the 3D would work. Tell us more about your TV. I'm so curious.

  51. The new logo is beautiful ladies. For some reason I always thought we shared the same may long weekend. I guess not, hope everyone has a good one. I'm not thrilled about the 9:00 time slot either, it is not a great time for the kid fans. BM do you know if it will be 9:00 every week?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wait I messed something, why do we not share the same long weekend? Keep me posted on anything good going on!

    As far as the time, I don't understand why it's on late since it's a family show.. 2 hour special? Does anyone know if it's on every week?

  53. Linda~ I forgot to add that ever since you changed your name, the other Linda never came back. Is that odd? Do you think she was a little doll with spiked hair? lol. I just feel bad that your referred to as "the original" now haha

  54. She's here Baby Mama. She's Robin. She went from Linda back to Robin because... oh I don't remember more than she used Linda because it was her mothet's name. She just posted yesterday.

    If I change my name again, it's going to be something distinctive. Just have to come up with it.

  56. Linda, you can turn off auto correction in your iphone if you want to. Go to settings, then keyboard and it has a place to turn it off. I found it when I was looking to turn off the shake to shuffle since my movement tends to feel like a shake to it. We are headed east on saturday for 10 days between Maryland and Pennsylvania, if it wasn't for my new iphone I would be lost, the only thing is that I use the internet on it soo much especially because it is a novelty for me that it needs frequent charging. I wish you could buy back up batteries.

  58. I really love the new header! And I love Kate's shirt!

    I have been trying to come up with a new name for a while now. I hate mine, it was just the first thing that came to my mind a couple of years ago when I began getting more into blogs.

    ReplyDelete
  59. wildchild~ now you know exactly how I feel! Before I started this blog I was on a site with friends going through infertility. My name was a celebration for myself and my friends after months of needles & pain.

    tashapork~ I gotta contemplate whether I wan't to be made fun of for not double checking my grammar, or telling my family I "live" them..haha Could someone tell me how I can get spell check on my laptop so I don't get yelled at anymore? I forget to check before I hit "post comment". ;)

    ReplyDelete
  60. You can write your comments in Word that has spell check and then paste them into the comment section, but it is a hassle. I usually find myself in too much of a hurry to worry too much about grammar police, but sometimes I go back and read some of what I write even over here and think "oh my gosh, that is horrible, run ons and such. It was why I was so surprised that I won the t-shirt until I noticed it was a drawing.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I never would even care, since since I'm so attacked by the troll grammar police, I have become a bit more aware of it. It's funny because when THEY do it, they just giggle and that's it. PLEASE, it's sooo no big deal. I guess I have been pretty sensitive lately. I'm learning to blow things off. What is that thing about when people copy you you should be flattered rather than pissed off? What is that expression? ugh

    Brooke sent me the cutest photo of her daughter in her tee with a bow on her head. I wanted to eat that up. Trying to work on another little thing soon for everyone.

  62. I hope its every week The show and Love the new photos and heading sooo cute!! Cant belive how Much they have grown and mady and cara have grow so much they all have really got alot taller :)

  63. yes the Lodge is very expensive on Holidays. Can you imagine the price of Hotel Hershey based on that Lodge price. There are great chain hotels in the area too. So don't just stay at a Lodge or Hotel.

  65. Good morning everyone! I've been in such a funk this week. I'm so happy for this Memorial TGIF! I hope I get to see all of you here at some point this weekend. Please don't leave me here with the crickets!

    Since I love the new look I wad wondering if you wanted to change the page layout ad well. Do you like it like this or do you want to post your comments on a separate white page ala GWOP (insert gag & choking here lol). I figured you may perfer to chat on a separate page that has everyones photo on it. Let me know if you would like to give it a try. While it's quiet this weekend I may play with color as well. Are you used to the soothing green or do you think it's time for a complete makeover?

    I treat this blog like my house. Every 6 months I get the itch to redecorate because I feel like it's too stale. Anyway, super excited for the new show! Wonder what the Gosselin kids are doing this weekend? Xoxo

  66. The site looks great Baby Mama!!!

    That's a much better pic of them in the People article. They look like the same little kids we all know and love.

  67. Baby Mama, I see everyone's photos now. I like it like this. But that's just me.

    Linda, I sure hope you can wear the glasses over eye glasses. I wear glasses when I am home. Contacts when I am out. Hold on....
    Okay, I tried them and they fit right over my glasses comfortably. I'm not sure how it will affect the viewing though because I didn't get the freakin tv yet!!!!

    I did try the 3D in the store and it was really cool... but I will let you know once I get the tv. I think you should go by: Linda Schminda. ;)

    momsby, I don't think you are applying everything you say to me... not all the time. Sometimes I do but not always. I have no problem if you do want to ask me about something I have said here or elsewhere. I don't get offended. And I'd like the opportunity to clear it up.

  70. OMG. Just got news of another train wreck. That's the fourth one in our state in 3 weeks. What kind of idiot thinks they can drive or maneuvet faster than a train. It's sad and frustrating.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm so sorry to hear that Linda..People are always in a rush and think they can beat anything. Last week I was squished soo tight in a subway car because people felt they could hold up an already packed train. I had to fight just to get out.

    Schmecky I appreciate the feeback. I was just wondering if anyone thought the flow of conversation would be better if we did it the other way. I remember trying it once when I first started this blog and everyone asked for this way. Is it because it would be too much like GWOP? I dunno, I'll try anything at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Thanks, Linda and Baby Mama for the new look! It's fantastic!

    About the late time for the new show - for those of you on the East Coast, what time was "J&K+8" on before? We had it on here on the West Coast twice; once in the very early evening and then on again later but still in prime time. I do notice that some other tv shows are on different times depending on the cable or satellite companies.

  73. tiggerfan1965~ I was going to stay at the Lodge because of the free kids "stay & play" program they are doing now to get more visitors. But when I saw just how much Hershey would be per night for 3 nights It was like a GRAND! Crazy, but still have hopes to go at some point, since there are cheaper places to stay. Right now I'm planning a quick trip to Sesame Place, maybe the Crayola Factory where the cute shops are. Then its all about saving for Disney hehe..

    Forgive me, but dreaming about vacations right about now are the only way for me ot make it through these summers!

  74. Lucysmom~ Isnt that funny, it's been so long since it was on I forgot what time I watched it. I think it may have still been 9pm back then as well because I remember rushing to get the kids to bed. I'm thinkng now that 9pm is still a good time since Im always crazy busy around 8pm. Also the kids stay up later when its Summer. I was just thinking the other day I hope they have more specials than this! I'm used to the weekly thing.

    After seeing Kate with her Pink Daisy Cole Haan bag on Gosselin Garb I had to have it. Cause yes I'm sick like that). And then my little one now accidentally got ahold of a pen and nicked the bottom of my bag. How do you get pen off leather? Its freaking me out. I can never have anything nice anymore.. Or light leather for that matter!

  75. Baby Mama - I like the one page but will try anything.
    --------
    You can use hairspray (the cheap kind) to remove ballpoint pen ink from fabric, walls, or leather. Rubbing alcohol removes marker from walls. I've had a bunch of budding artists in the past, lol.

    Wow, your traffic is up! People just have to comment, lol. Congrats.

  76. Yes! I'm really hoping with the new show I will see some of my old commenters who haven't been here in a while. Where ya'll been? I swear I won't take it personally! And to those here every day, you know I love ya! or "live ya" on IPhone! ;)

    Linda, One more thing. Off Topic sorry! I have my Coach suede patchwork bag and the suede part of the patches w/the CC logo is dirty. If I tried to use the brush and it didn't clean it, how else do you clean suede? I would text you but I have to wait till Monday! haha

  77. Well, Happy Memorial Weekend to all! Drive safe and have a good one!
    I can't think of anything to say right now, because it's only a TV show. Is it going to be real??? Missed everything this week, but it's only TV. We buried my 49 year old cousin on Wed. and that was real. How sad, she left 3 kids and husband who is lost.

  78. Baby Mama - Suede and kids? I rarely buy it. I buy the suede eraser when i buy shoes (my mothet used a slice of white bread.) Ink with white vinegar or windex. Best if you spray it with the protective spray when you first buy it. Beyond that, take it to dry cleaners, but expensive.

  79. Baby Mama,
    I love that your site look so different from the others, the colors are so soothing and actually make me feel calm (silly I know)!

    There is something that drives me crazy about the sites that use that white page. Whenever I go to a link that someone has posted and I try to come back to that site, it sends me to the top of the page again. I then have to scroll down to the last post I was reading. I hate that! Your site brings me right back to the last post I was at.

    I am completely computer illiterate (I am soooo envious of Linda and Schmecky) and don't know if the white pages have anything to do with my aforementioned pet peeve but just thought I'd let you know.

    Whatever you decide, I'll still be here lurking;)

  80. Babymama,
    Here are two spell check programs, http://www.spellcheckanywhere.com/
    this one is free: http://www.iespell.com/
    This is the one I use most of the time, used it for several years and it works well. It's a right click and it gives you the setup options.
    Pretty good for free.

  81. I like these colors, their soothing and easy to read. I don't care for the colors on my blog, too bright, but it came with the template and so far I haven't figured out how to change them. Everything I read to change them, changes the wrong thing. There's so many sites that tell you how to change things and it's still hit or miss if it works or not.

  83. Caregiver - Many times in life we seem to disagree over the most trivial of things. I'm sorry you lost your cousin.

  84. #1caregiver~ I'm so sorry to hear what you are going through. Loss brings so much into focus and perspective. Know that your friends are here whenever you need to chat. xoxox

    I just heard Gary Coleman from Different Strokes just passed away..how very sad!

    ZiggyFlo~ Thank you so much for these, I really will be checking them out and trying them this weekend. If I get one more e-mail along the lines of "ohh your spelling makes your blog look unprofessional" I am gonna freak. Trollies love to comment on "z gramma". Take a chill and stop being so obsessed with my blog.

    angelsmama~ Please stop being a lurker and chat sometimes! We always appreciate your thoughts, especially this one! I'm just trying to get the old guys back you know? Is it my blog that is so boring you have to start your own or that you just never liked it here? Thats what Im thinking about in the back of my mind. So I try new things in order to not be stale. Miss you!

  85. I had just worn a new,ice-blue nightie I sewed,and then somehow got black Jiffy marker spots all over it! So I put lighter fluid on the spots,then dabbed(never rub!)with a clean towel,they all came right off,you can use lighter fluid for most every tough stain.And I love the colors on this blog!

  86. R I P Gary Coleman...so sad :(

  87. Thanks Baby Mama. After that JW thing with Linda I did get a little afraid to post since I don't know anything about how they get your info. Like I said before I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to anything computer related. Even just being here (or anywhere else) lurking make me nervous, but I can't help myself I love your site!:)

    ReplyDelete
  88. That is a complete fabrication Jw. More to come.

  89. Well I guess that answers the question if she's still lurking....

    I like the colors too!

    Back to packing! LOL

  90. Caregiver - am so sorry for your loss. I missed it earlier.

    Do you mind my asking if your handle 'caregiver' relates to something specific?

  91. JW found a review at Amazon with a screen name and my name.
    Using that, JW searched and found marketinf work for a client. She, pkaying reporter but not smart enough to even check, decided i was this massage therapist. The therapist was Michelle Mace-Lambert. Her name, her license # as an instructor were both listed ay tbe top of the You:Tube page along with her phone number and her web-site. She searched for a link where it just had my screen name and the website link. She was not even smart enough to see if the person had othrt things in youtube under her name (which she did and does.) Pretty dumb huh?

    More to come.

  92. Happy Memorial to my US friends, we had our Victoria Day weekend last week. If it makes you feel any better, BM my husband ended up with all kinds of OT, Sooooo you can imagine how much fun I had. However, We bought a new van this month & I was not the one who had to miss everything, I should not complain.
    J&K used to always be on at 8:00 where I live.
    I like you just the way you are...( who sings that again) Everybody needs to chill with the grammer raids, who cares is not the content of the message more important? Ignore the rudie patooties.
    CM I'm thinking of ya..moving stinks!
    Linda..I love hairspray, vinegar and babywipes for lifes little messages. Usually one of the 3 seem to work.
    angelsmama- that whole thing freaked me out as well. Please do not let that kind of bad behaviour chase you away. I'm a techno twit also, but BM can explain how it works through e-mail.
    JW...I hope you are proud of yourself? Does it make you feel good that you have scared people who have never done anything to you, other than have a different opinion? SHAME ON YOU!

  93. #1 Caregiver,
    I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, my deepest sympathies to you and your family. Your right we all need to remember to keep things in perspective. Life is a precious gift & we need to live each day to the fullest.

  94. Linda~ I saved everything. I got rid of a few things here because I don't want to get into it on this fan site. Lisa and her morons are baiting her to come back here to piss me off. They have no idea how much trouble she's already in. She apparently went to their site and said the police were laughing? Who would believe that? only them. I take a firm stand on my site that no one will be harassed here. We will talk, to the police about going to the house and dealing with her again. Could you imagine..thats some CRAZY right there!

  95. Momsby~ thanks for stopping by and for your Holiday wishes. You came at a time I was attacking my bug problem! So sorry! Mama don't play that game!

  96. I guess the good thing is that I know justice will one day come. And it will definitely come.

    Karma can be a hard road. It is the great knee breaker.

  97. Momsby - thank you. Hope you had a great Victoria weekend!

  98. annastasia~ I'm sorry I missed your comment. I have some marker on my daughter's Gymboree cotton pants that won't come off. Would lighter fluid work on that too? Does it only work on pen? I need to know this since I was going to toss them! Nothing worked to clean the suede. I'm devastated b/c I love that bag!

    Linda~ when was Joy ragging on Jon? For the whole girlfriend thing? If I was Kate I would be really pissed right about now. Its hard to see the nasty crap Life and Style writes about.. I won't even look it's all lies. They said Angelina was pregant 16 times!

    ReplyDelete
  99. So happy to see the new photos of Kate + 8. Thanks Baby Mama for keeping this going.

    I am not keeping up with all the posts since moving to Florida. First, there are SOOOOOO many now! Hard to keep up. Second, the weather is so insanely wonderful that I'm not in the house on the computer nearly as much. The entire US should relocate to sunshine.

    Glad to see so many "new" and "original" (Linda!) fans.....

    : )

  100. Holli Day~ I miss you! How was the move? So happy to see you again! I hear the weather is great now. Do you like where you live better? I can't wait to go to FL at end of the Summer. It wil mostly be Disney though..There are so many places I miss and never get to see including Miami...

    Two years strong and not going anywhere. Remember my promise to never quit this site until GWOP is gone. A near ago next week the Jon & Kate scandal was in full swing. I had almost 92,000 hits in a month. That was HUGE for me. June was the month the breakup started and I still feel sad about it.. Hope you like the new look, Linda helps me make it purdy.

  101. Baby Mama - Joy did 5 mins on Jon last night. I can get the Hulu link if you want. She and the others there were talking about it being irresponsible, given his track record and the newness of his current relationship. Their take was that he should at least give it a few months.

    It was sad because they said something to the effect that Jesse James had taken the title of Worst Dad from Jon. Then Jon involved the latest flavor because he wanted the title back.

    Sad, sad. I keep hoping for Jon. He must be incredibly insecure. It's like he can't be five minutes without companionship. Let's hope she doesn't loan him money.

  102. Baby Mama - If you really love the purse, take it to a drycleaner, lol. They can spot treat it for you.

  103. We need fresh paper, Baby Mama. Something maybe camomile scented this time, lol, to be soothing and relaxing.

  104. By the way...I L O V E the new header!! So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  105. ahh yes, I feel the need for that! I was so busy chatting away and enjoying my free time alone that I forgot about a new page. Sadly the baby is up now and hungry. I promise soon I will get something up after I do dinner.

  106. Baby Mama - The heading looks great on top of the good pics. See I told you your site looks the best.
    Thanks to all for your warm words and thoughts.

  107. Caregiver, I am sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself.
    Linda, I would love to see a link for Joy Behar, I couldn't find anything when I searched, I wanted to know what she had to say. I absolutely love that Kate isn't playing his game and saying anything publicly. I hope she has good close friends for support because as a Mom it must be tough to have things like that that you have no control over. I was hoping that the class that they made them go to would have helped, it seemed Jon wasn't listening. I keep thinking that some day he will wake up and smell the beans. I was watcing old episodes on youtube last night and boy do I miss the old Jon as Kate calls him.
    We are getting packed to leave for 10 days, I can't believe all the electronics that we are dependent on, laptop, phones, chargers, etc. I need a bag just for that stuff, but the cool thing is that I can stay in touch with all of you guys. We will actually be in Pennsylvania when Kate Plus Eight airs. I hope the Best Western has TLC, I forgot to check

  108. In honor of Linda, lets take a deep sniff of my lovely Camomile with just a touch of lavender fresh paper.. A fresh page is perfect & just in time for this festive Memorial Day Weekend..I'll be here, don't forget to stop by! xoxox
