Kate Gosselin On Larry King Live


Hello Gosselin fans! Which one will you watch tonight? Both the big episode when the family finally moves and Kate will also be on Larry King Live BOTH at the same time! I am so glad that they repeat the show because I am dying for Kate to spar off against Larry. So many times people would make comment like..Ohh I can't wait until Kate goes on a show like Larry King.. Why, you don't think she can handle it? I think that she is MORE than ready to deal with his types of questions..You go Kate, I'm rooting for you! (lol) Larry King is both taking questions and has an exclusive blog for the event. The comments are..the usual. Feel free to comment HERE. I will post a separate blog later once I watch the episode, as I was glued to my seat watching Larry King and haven't seen it yet! I couldn't get my kids to bed in time! I made them brush their teeth in like 30 seconds! (lol)

"A parent of multiples will forever be answering questions, fending off judgment and making logistical adjustments to make life fit their situation. This is just another part of life with multiples that will eventually become normal but, again, takes adjustment and wisdom."~Kate Gosselin on Larry King

Kate Does Great On Larry King Live

Ohh how I love to prove those haters wrong. I cant remember how many comments used to come on the blogs saying things like "ohh they need to get Kate on Larry King live. He'll really stick it to her". Lets just start off that Kate in Chicago was via satellite. She is currently in Oak Brook Illinois for a book signing tomorrow. I was amazed, she looked absolutely beautiful tonight. She almost passed out when Larry first called her a different name (her called her Jane), after that it was all business. She probably didn't realize the number of umms you say (lol) but spoke very eloquently on how she struggled the first year and how deeply concerned she is for the new mom. She could have gotten really snarky about it, but all she said was basically she wished her the best. What question did I love? Does it become your right to judge other peoples parenting? How about when they are on TV? Kate answered that with class saying "Id did put my family on TV, but everyone is entitled to parent there kids how they see fit". Or something like that.. I gotta get that video footage. The trolls were already commenting before she show was on. All anyone can say is if Kate had work done. More superficical, jealous and bitter comments are sure to come!

The important point of this interview was, why are we entitled to say anything about this mom and her babies? Is it because they are not even a week old and shes already fielding out millions for the first interview? Is it because they're are 6 others that will also need her attention? And does it make sense that she is being vilified so early in the game since shows like Jon & Kate Plus 8 are making families with multiples so much money? This interview was great because it opened up so many questions to discuss. But who are we to judge? Or will people wait to judge when this woman has her own reality show? The answers will obviously be sooner than later......

Teresa said...

They are both going to be great. Baby Mama, I'm with you, Kate is ready for the big gun!!!

The*GosselinGarb*Finder said...

babymama your the best I didn't even know she was going to have appearance on there! I think LK is interesting since he asks cool questions and then just stares at people! So very exited! I am going to DVR on 1 and 2 so I'll get to see both.

Kate will do awesome by now she is probably well prepared, those comments on the site were hideous.

Molly said...

todays episode was great!!
can't wait to see the haters comments. hear the sarcasm?!?!
=)

Jay said...

I haven't watched the episode in full yet but just the fact that she was in LA and didn't have time to pack yet. I am sure we will only see a small portion of the move cuz that house was no where near ready for a move. I guess Kate has to make money to pay for this house. I don't care what the episodes are about, the fact that she still take donations and uses them at the spa is downright unbelievable. That money shouldn't be coming in any longer and what does should go to the kids....UgH!!!!

The*GosselinGarb*Finder said...

Kate looked GORGEOUS! I really enjoyed the LK interview at first i thought it was a one on one with Kate and LK but it was about the Octuplets or as they called it (Octuplets Outrage) Wow give yourself a pat on the back on that one LK as if any birth of a child should be called an outrage? I understand the point was the controversial topics that keep arising from this birth. Anyway, the video will be on you tube in a couple of days.

Hello Baby Mama!
I got a chance to hear Kate speak yesterday at Willow Creek Church. I would like to share my experience with you and your readers!
Is there a way I can contact you?
My email address is lthiesfeld07@yahoo.com
Thanks!

What a fabulous episode. Ok, 5 minutes into the episode, they showed clips from prior shows, because of memories. The first clip was of Jon and Kevin hanging the shelves in the garage. Then they showed Beth at the tups 3rd B-day party. I am sure if there was a fued between them, those clips could not have been shown. Not sure, just my opinion.
Kate got a beautiful stainless steal industrial refrigerator. I am sure that will cause a huge discussion at gwop. J&K showed that they had been filming in the new house. The wide shot made me giggle, because they are filming in the un-finished yucky part of the basement. No one can complain about that. HAHA gwoppers. I am going to guess they have been there since the fall. The kiddos were playing outside in long sleeve shirts, but no jackets. Joel was oh to cute when he said "I fall everyday". LOL :) To darn cute. At the end Kate said we needed this house for our kids because they deserve it. Very nice. In my opinion she did not need to justify that, because I think they all need the house and am so happy for them. But, I thought it was a nice jab on Kate's part.

But, the best part of the show to me was when Kate flipped on Jon for not using a coupon to by the shower head. That can not be staged. She was genuinly upset over that. I thought, good for you Kate. Also, she was going through the drawer with a stack of receipts, so she could take it back and get the coupon refunded. You don't get receipts when everything is supposedly given for free. Hum, sounds like to me the other sites don't have all the facts.

pmalo said...

The new house will be great for them. The extra space was needed. It will help ease frustration that comes with crowded spaces. Also the kids will be burning off alot of energy on the property. Well deserved move. Good luck to all of them

Cindy said...

I had no idea that she would be on LKL. I think the gwoppers are boring people. They drum up 'facts' and pick Kate apart because their own lives are uneventful. Let's face it, that takes time and energy. Kate is so focused on raising her family the best way she can. No book comes with kids, no matter how many you have, so it doesn't matter what you do at the time. If you base your decisions on love and wanting to make the best life for them...who are we to judge? I truly believe this is what Jon and Kate are doing, making a life for their kids. A good one. One that is full of balanced healthy meals, their home is clean beyond belief, they are well dressed and clean. I don't believe they get everything for free, that is just a ludicrous childish point. Who cares if they do? Personally, it doesn't bother me a bit. I would rather see companies giving items to a good decent family than a pot smoking drinking athlete......he's making millions and behind the scenes laughing because he isn't as 'DEDICATED' to the sport as suggested. GAG ME!

At least Jon and Kate are doing the best they can, and now they are making it a life's work to take care of their kids and share that story with us....go go go! I have been so curious how families cope with multiple births. We have a steak house locally that has all the dolls and toys from the famous quintuplets that were born in France years ago. I was mesmerized by them. I read all I could about them.

Jon and Kate are very open with their lives, even pointing out that they are not perfect, that we will see their slips and bumps, even their anger, but it is OK. Who amongst us would look this good in our daily private lives?

Kathy said...

Thank you for your site...I try not to pay attention to the negative comments people say but for what ever reason I feel so frustrated that people out there are so ignorant. Its nice to see a site that is positive. I love this family!

BEE said...

I thought Kate did a nice job of LKL! And she looked great, as usual! I don't think she has had anymore "work" done, but now has more opportunities to take care of herself...you go girl!

Jay, I have to disagree with you! Why is it "horrible" that Kate is now able to do something nice for herself? How do YOU know "what" money Kate is using on spa treatments, and is it truly any of your business? Donations that are given to the Gosselins, whether it be from individuals or from Love Offerings, is money freely given to the Gosselins to do WHATEVER they want with!! It is a gift and unless the person indicates that they would like it to be used in a specific manner, it is up to Jon and Kate to make those decisions!

You say that donations shouldn't be coming in any longer....why, because they now live in a large home? Do you know their finances, or what future expenses they will incur over the years raising 8 children? Then you say "and what does should go to the kids". How do you know what funds the Gosselins have set up for their children? And do the children not directly benefit from living in the new home?

I just don't understand why people can't accept the fact that other people what to financially contribute to the is family? And I also don't understand why people think it is thier business to say what the Gosselins should and shouldn't do with their money! It just frustrates me to no end!

Jay said...

Kate herself (in an interview) stated that she uses the "love offerings" to go to the spa. Do your research before you start to "disagree" with me. You are one of the many that can't see that Kate is all about herself and being the "star" of JK+8. They just purchased a mansion without selling their other house and bought a condo in Utah....This isn't about her kids, it's about herself and living in luxury. Jon should be out working not being Kate's slave....I couldn't believe how she bossed him around on the Move day episode...And then they have this nice mansion and their interviews are taking place in an unfinished area of the house....what the !!!!

Lesley said...

Jay,

As my husband would say, you are a Scary Ass! Baby Mama can't disagree with you? Pooh on you!

Provide your proof please....when and what episode did she say she uses ONLY love offerings for spa days? The point is that its HER money, whether its love offering or from God himself, its hers. You are not her accountant.

Are you a dude by chance? Don't like a women bossing around men? Its their marriage you realize right? You are not their marriage counselor either.

This is a reality show. If its too much for you to handle then do not watch.

Jay said...

I loved Kate & Jon +8, have their book and dvr all their episodes. I just can't believe she leaves her kids to go "promote" her book and show and leave them for days. They are moving and she just got back from LA leaving Jon home alone to pack and take care of the kids. What does she do in all the episodes when Jon is putting together beds, changing kids and taking them to school? TLC spent most of an episode on cleaning the frig and now the frig may have been replaced. I hope they just changed the front of the door but who knows with obsessive Kate. Plus the constant "free trips" and now the mansion has made me realize she is just after the money!
Google info...it was NOT an interview on the show, it was a print interview when she stated she uses the money for her weekly (monthly; not sure exactly) spa treatments..it may have been the Good Housekeeping issue but I found it online somewhere. I am not going to spend my time researching for you people who can't see how Kate is manipulating her kids. Sorry!!
Oh, and I am not a male...but Kate is totally obsessive with Jon doing all the chores and bossing him around. I wonder if he still gets up with the twins for school (twins that now go to private school)at 6:30am while Kate still is in bed!!!!
And I wouldn't want to be her accountant since she probably has money coming in from many sources (money for her kids, she states) and she would want me to do it for free cuz she wouldn't want me making money off her kids....like Aunt Jodi...don't even get me started with that. Why isn't Beth doing interviews with her about the book, Beth wrote the book?

Shelly said...

Jay, I believe her exact words were "IF SOMEONE GIVES HER MONEY", she uses it at the spa. There are alot of people who would walk up to Kate and give her money, and say this is for you to you use. Until recently my sister was a single mom with 4 kids. She worked and had help. But, she would never spend anything on her self. About once a month I would give her money and tell her, "This is for you". The next time I would see her, she had a hair cut or a new shirt, ect. Do you have any idea how that made me feel? FABULOUS. I give to charity every year, I see a person at the store that does not have enough money and I try to help. If I seen Kate Gosselin, I would ask her if she wanted to go to the spa with me, my treat. No, I am not rich, just someone willing to help or make a new friend. You sound like a bitter old man, who thinks a women done him wrong, or your stuck in 18th century.

Who cares or even who's business is it what the Gosselin's do with their money. I believe Kate is whiz with finances and they will always be on the top of their game.

By the way, if you noticed, THIS IS A FAN SITE.

Shelly said...

Beth wrote the book, but it was Jon and Kate's story. Not Beth's. Without J&K, their would be no book. Also, I am sure Kate can write, but her friend offered to help.

Lesley said...

Jay- here is a quote from Today's Christian Woman.....
-----------------------------------
Do you get any time just for you in the midst of children and cameras and everything?

I used to think taking a shower by myself was enough, or enjoying a quiet house once the kids went to bed at night. But I finally realized it's like I'm at work all the time.

I don't go to the office and come home; the "office" is always there.

Over the years, if anybody sent me money just for me, I saved it. But a couple months ago, I told Jon I'm using that money to go to the spa once a month. He was all for it. I get a massage and a pedicure. Of course, I still feel guilty leaving him and the kids, but I look forward to that time like you wouldn't believe.

Jon followed suit with regular golf outings. We've realized how important that time away is.
-----------------------------------

Jay- If you know that she said she uses ONLY love offering I challenge you to waste your time and find the site that is proof.

You rock Shelly.

Shelly said...

Lesley,

I knew that is what she said (I started to doubt myself, when I could not find it). Thanks for looking it up. It amazes me how people have selective hearing or in this case, selective reading. LOL :)

cali-mom said...

I missed the LKL interview!!! Darn it!! I so wanted to see it too.

Baby Mama said...

I put the video up so all of you can see it!

Molly said...

thanks for the vid!

Shelly said...

Thanks Baby Mama for the video.
As always, Kate was beautiful.

HOLLI DAY said...

I missed the Larry King show! Darn. Hope you can post the whole interview.

The GWOPers are scary. They seem determined to find and post the Gosselin's home address. I worry about the safety of the family with those crazy people constantly after them. . .

Baby Mama said...

Jay~thank you so much for contributing posts. However this is a fan site, and again (for those that I haven't spoken to a million times) comments made that are nasty to Kate and the family will be removed.

Shelly said...

Number one Jay, if you at all have read this site, you would know that I have a disabled child. He is un-insurable, will never drive a car, has been in and out of the hostpital, and was a blessing to me. So, don't even think you are the only one in that position. My son, who is now 18, the doctors said he would not live to be a teenager, has Reigers Syndrome. When he was born, there were only 7cases in the United States. Fight a disease that no doctor knows about.

But, I can and everyone else can choose to do with our money what we want. Including the Gosselins. Oh, and I do not help people just so I can have a friend. I help people because, that is the American and Christian thing to do. I do not judge others or sit in the corner like a bitter hag because I have a disabled child. I thank GOD everyday for him. Maybe you should focus on that instead of trying to beat others down.

BEE said...

Jay,
I believe Jon and Kate when they say that everything they do is for the kids! You don't have to, but I do. That being said, I am sure that Jon and Kate also enjoy many of the perks that come along with their unique situation. Personally, I don't see anything wrong with that.
As far as my need to do "research", I knew the article you were referring to about Kate spending money given to her on her spa treatments. First of all, it says "Over the years, if anybody sent me money just for me....". She does not clarify if this is money sent from fans or from friends and family for holidays etc. Regardless, it was money sent to Kate to spend on herself. But that is beside the point, the fact is that any money that Jon and Kate make, that is donated or even collected in a Love Offering, is THEIR money!

Someone used this expression the other day and it seems appropriate for some of the comments from the non fans.

Larry King is a lightweight celebrity interviewer, is generally unprepared, and usually just works off of the material provided to him by the interviewees PR team. How the gwoppers could even think that Larry King would ask tough questions is beyond me. Of course she did well on his show, most all of his celebrity interviews go well by design. There was no chance that he would rip into her about the hornets nest in her life right now.
