Hello Gosselin Fans! I almost passed out in my chair today when I saw the amount of hits on my site yesterday. Almost 10,000 for only yesterday and over 18,000 page views! Now to bad for a blog that wasn't supposed to mean anything huh? Please continue to come and share this amazing ride with me. I finally feel that there is some method to my madness...Comments are welcome! And I appreciate all the sweet e-mails telling me to stand high amongst all the negativity and continue to talk about the family everyone loves to watch and read about. I hope you are OK while we go through this ice storm. Its slushy snow now and the most horrible of commutes.
I have to start with the horrible horrible jealousy and bitterness that came onto the blogs when the episode we have all been waiting for Came out. On Monday, TLC’s show ranked No. 1 for it’s time slot on cable, pulling in over 1.6 million women between the ages of 18-49. The episode beat out the season premiere of TNT’s “The Closer,” by 400,000. So every snarker that commented on a hate site contributed to Jon & Kate Plus 8 being the #1 CABLE SHOW ON MONDAY NIGHT. So thank you trolls, this family appreciates it! The down-right vulgar, nasty and downright scary jealous snarking comments were beyond called for. Of course, the nasty e-mail I sent to Sharla for being the
Kate Gives Advice to the Octuplets Family
There are SEVERAL news articles regarding Kate. On Parentdish.com, Kate cautions the new California mother that, like all new moms, she should "look forward to feelings of overwhelming proportions -- good, bad and ugly." But unlike moms of singles or twins, moms of remarkable multiples will be barraged by outsiders. "People will pop up with advice when they have no idea [of] the situation." And of course, more babies means more help, which means more people around all the time.
On NBC. COM & Access Hollywood, Kate went further to discuss how life was turned upside down: “I wish someone would have told me that every — every aspect of my life would change… not only our family size, number of children, hopes and dreams, logistics of how things are done and that houses are not built for our family’s makeup,” Kate explained. “Boxes of cereal, rolls of paper towels, and boxes of snacks or recipes are never ever going to be big enough again for us!”
There is also another article from ABC News about the cost of raising Octuplets. You wonder how people can blast Kate for having her hand out when her kids are born. It is very much the norm now to have families with multiples opening their arms to anything the could get. Its very expensive to raise that many kids!
Rev. Craig Yoshihara Blasts The people at GWOP
If you live in Atlanta, GA, please please go to see Jon & Kate at the Roswell Methodist Church. A troll or two wrote to the church in the hopes that they would have something cool to post on a hate site like "yeah what I do really does make a difference". I don't know if they were trying to protest them coming or what. Anyway Rev. Yoshihara actually wrote back telling her not no e-mail him anymore! Not only that, but here are a few Gems that he wrote to her and she made sure the site posted:
"If you would actually like to speak to me about your concerns, please call. I implore you as a fellow Christian to withhold judgment unless you know them personally to be doing these things. Most of what you speak of is pure speculation, rumor, and gossip - all of which are not Biblical. Thank you for your concern."
Peace and Blessings,

Holy Your Not Getting Anywhere With This Batman! It was so very happy to get this e-mail from a fan. I feel so bad that his e-mail had to be ripped apart on that horrific site. I will make sure to personally thank him for telling them...to go take their anger & jealousy elsewhere!
