Ok, so the "crazies" did come out last night. Many just wanted to come on saying Kate looked fat. huhh?? But mostly they didn't know what to do with themselves because the episode was good. So they decided to let the jealousy claws come out again to complain about the whole promoting the V-tech thing. Now maybe I am THAT ignornant, or are people truly LOOKING for things to complain about? First off if I could get anything cool like that for my kids I would smile for the cameras real quick. Its sad when you hear comments like this:
" I am a single mother and to see those beautiful children receive so many things and go so many places that MY beautiful child may not get to do, since I actually earn MY living, it just upsets me."
Reading the e-mails I get get about this site REALLY upsets me. Just because you might not be able to do or get what this family has doesn't mean its OK to bash them on a hate site for that reason. If it truly made those feel people feel better wasting their time like bullies calling a mother fat, then I don't know what to say. However on a similar note, I am super excited to start having my first set of contributing bloggers to my site! The first is Jen, and the full blog can be read HERE:
Kate Gosselin: Victim of the blogosphere?
"I’ve been a fan of Jon and Kate Plus 8 since their first season. I’m a reality tv junkie and lover of all things baby, so I became a fast fan of the show. Other than the fact that I liked it, I didn’t really have any opinions of the show or the Gosselin family.
And then I ruined it.
One day I happened to stumble upon a blog that was super critical of Jon and Kate Gosselin, Kate in particular. Readers of the blog had a million and one comments regarding the show. I never realized that Kate was such a controversial individual. She’s too mean to Jon, she doesn’t do enough with her kids, she’s neurotic, she’s money hungry, she doesn’t have a relationship with her parents, she’s ungrateful, she’s annoying, she shut Aunt Jodi out of the lives of her children, etc.
A quick Google search informed me that there is a whole slew of Kate haters all over the web. On occasion her fans will stick up for her, but the fans seem to be greatly outnumbered by those who criticize her.
This week while watching a recent episode, I became extremely annoyed. I couldn’t just see Kate Gosselin as a regular mom of 8 (super cute) kids. All I saw were the less than desirable qualities that others see in her and so vehemently blog about. It’s no longer mindless television. Crap.
I wonder if Kate Gosselin really is deserving of all the criticism or if she’s just an unlucky victim of the blogosphere? Either way my Jon and Kate Plus 8 experience is now totally unenjoyable. Thanks a lot blogosphere. "
