You know, sometimes you just gotta go to the hate sites just to see what they could POSSIBLY come up with to bash this poor family after a great episode like this. Ohh its amazing what they can criticize. I personally was thrilled to finally see this, after it was stated on a few blogs that yes, not alot of people were originally there! Little did the poor Gosselin's know that there was a yard sale down the street. Thank goodness they came up with some creative ways to get people there! And regarding those that said Kate was in a bad mood, well you would be too if you were being filmed at 4am. So back off! (lol)
I know how much it sucks getting up at the crack of dawn to do a yard sale. I vowed never to do it again. But since this was for a good cause, I was totally excited to watch this and see how it turned out. What touched me the most was what the haters complained about. Kate selling Jon's dads ornaments. Well it was soo sweet to see it meant something to Mady, and Kate kept the ballerina slippers for her. Crisis solved. She also found ways to fix misspelled signs, no advertising and crappy tables. I was honestly proud of them. I would have been the same way uhh "irritated" (lol). At the end of the day it was super cute to see Cara and Mady selling drinks and the family making a productive day of over $1100. It looked like they were practically giving the stuff away, I would have charged more! To hear people complain about Kate this time was ridiculous and only proving the point that they only comment to complain for the sake of complaining.
Overall, the shocker for the haters was seeing Carla. Apparently once someone is on an episode they never come back. So it was especially nice for her to be on to prove a point. Just because they are not on every week people.....And overall a show that was more about Jon & Kate and less about the babies but still be good. To hear that people came just to donate anyway was the greatest thing for me. And for the record, how many times are you going to read on a hate show that they no longer watch the show when you KNOW they do? Funny there were a few posts from people that they only watched THIS time. Yeah right. And finally, people complain non-stop about the Gosselins not giving back enough.. Well is an upcoming episode dedicated to St. Jude enough?? Stay tuned.......GO GOSSELINS!
Feeling Full From Turkey? Relax With A Gosselin Thanksgiving Marathon!
How cool was it to see that cute commercial for the Jon & Kate Plus 8 Marathon that they are having for the holiday! Yep, looks like instead of making it a Gosselin night, you can make it a Gosselin Holiday! I know I will, after of course The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
