To the contrary, I’d say that age and motherhood are quite wonderful and need no excuse.Whether you agree with that or not, plastic surgeon and blogger Dr. Tony Youn adds some helpful medical perspective:
Although Kate looks flat and tight when standing, it’s not surprising that her skin looks this way when sitting. Everyone has some skin that folds over when sitting down. We must, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to stand up straight. With Kate, however, that skin has been profoundly stretched out, so it’s not going to look as smooth as the skin of a person who has not had children.A reader of the “In Your Face” page on Facebook comments: “The whole Kate Gosselin phenomenon is a very sad statement about our society….but it saddens me to hear such hate spewing criticism!”
Get ready for Russian versions of Kate Gosselin and 'Cake Boss': LATimesBlog.com
Get ready for the Russian version of Kate Gosselin and "Cake Boss."Discovery Communications, parent of some of the biggest cable networks in the United States, including Discovery Channel and TLC, detailed plans to expand into Russia. Among the ventures the company is launching in Russia are a new version of TLC for the region. TLC has become one of the driving forces of Discovery in the U.S., with shows such as "Cake Boss" and personalities including Kate Gosselin, who rose to fame after the reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" took off. Later this year, it will launch a show featuring former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
Among the shows that will be on the Russian version of TLC is "Like Mother, Like Daughter," a makeover show that will be done by a Moscow-based production firm.But makeover shows won't be the only thing Discovery Communications will import. There will also be a bloc of commercial-free science education shows called "Crazy Break". Discovery already has seven channels operating in Russia, but the expansion is aimed at increasing local productions so the channels are more than just a rehash of what is shown in the U.S.
