Hello Gosselin fans! While last night I'm sure you were in your PJ's watching the Oscars, my friend begged me to go see Kathy Griffin with her at Madison Square Garden. And since the Oscars had the obvious winners (Kate Winslet, Peneople Cruz, and Slumdog Millionaire for everything) and only one surprise (Sean Penn) I was super happy we went to see Kathy. She was so funny and awesome. "Thank you so much for buying one of my tickets in this lousy economy!" she said. "I promise to make this worth while!" And boy, did her humorous potty mouth deliver, I swear I almost peed in my pants.
Puppies For The Gosselins See Photos!
I am soo excited to see this episode tonight. I will try to recap it as soon as its on. There have been rumors spread that they gave the dogs away due to allergies. That is so false and another lie that was spread on sites to make it appear like the Gosselins shouldn't be entitled to pets. Jon spoke about the puppies at Penn State and they still have them. So again, where these rumors start I don't know. And how does anyone esp. a hate blog say whats good or bad for this family and think that they knows whats best for anyone? What people have written about the breeder that gave the dogs to the family strictly because of who they are were disgusting. What is wrong with this family, just like ANY family, allowed to get pets for their family? This article talks a bit about why this particular breed may or may not be a good fit. SEE TLC's "We Want A Puppy" Never-Before Seen Websode! And see the pictures of the dogs HERE!
So Kate gives the announcement that the kids will be getting not one, but two puppies for Christmas. The trolls are watching with anticipation and practically bust a get when the kids are upset they can't get to name them. First off, there are 8 kids. To get them all to agree on a name would be ridiculous. I did agree that the names should be up to the parents, however I honestly would have at least attempted to make it seem like they helped with the decision. I loved watching the excitement of the kids as they got to the mans house and saw all the puppy cages. Poor Aaden was the only scared one, but letting the kids play with the dogs and see them enjoying the mans backyard was again a nice treat. Jon & Kate discussed their reason for picking these dogs, which should be good enough for them, but apparently not good enough for bloggers. Everyone seems to have an opinion about it (see above). They wanted both a boy and a girl, and it was nice to see Kate so happy, calm and relaxed about choosing which ones they were getting.
When they found out they could take them home then and there, Jon & Kate looked a bit scared. I don't blame them. I don't think either were prepared for them, and Kate's comment (it was like getting babies at your door) was very accurate. One home the first thing they did was pee and poop on the new carpet. I also liked that Kate mentioned what such big helpers Mady and Cara have been, with the Tups adjusting. I really hope this family proves the negative haters wrong and has these dogs for a very long time. They are making me, sad as it is, become slightly interested in giving in to my own kids about a family pet.........
And although Mady had her usual fit in the beginning of the show of not being able to name the dogs, I liked at the end how she said to all the kids "Now lets say thank you mommy and daddy for getting us puppies!". Kates "your not welcome" was just Kate being Kate.. And giving all the trolls something to blog about. Thank you Kate, because they honestly would have had nothing else for another honestly good episode.
