Hello Gosselin fans! I'm so sorry that this big fan has been short on the posts this week. Today I practically ran home from work after taking a child CPR class at the library. I am going to leave this for now for anyone that wishes to comment and/or speculate on the season finale tonight. I'm so excited yet so sad. All this build-up and now we have to watch a new family for a while. Frankly I'm sad to say I'm too dedicated to this one and I will be skipping it in favor of my Dancing with the Stars.......So relax, my posts are on the way, and lets thank Laura for the incredible recent photo of Kate from the last speaking appearance! Want Kate's top? Go to the Gosselin Garb Finder to find out how!
B-Ball & More
Yay the episode is here! How interesting that it seems they were JUST on Oprah and here they are getting ready for the even. Is it me or do I feel like they edit these in 2 days? Kate talked about her change in her appearance finally. Like we need any more ammo for the trolls on Kate's fashion evolution. I personally LOVE the way she looks. Why is she only not relateable if she dresses in sweats and look harried? Its so funny to say that I knew (or at least I think I did) the exact Gymboree store she was at. It was cool that she went in and commented about the clothes she like there and discussed what the kids like to wear since I am at the EXACT stage now with my kids. We also got to see her shopping at Ann Taylor for the beautiful blouse that she wore last week for her recent speaking appearance! I also understood how hard it is to do something via satellite, as they were doing, with the kids trying to be still polite and calm when they cant hear or relate to whats going on. They went to get haircuts for their Oprah appearance from their home and I was glad to see that all the kids were happy they looked nice, because it was off to the Harlem Globetrotters! Who knew that they were such huge fans of the show!
But there was NO HUGE booing. Liars! As far as the Harlem Globetrotters outing, I have to say I spoke to two people that went to the vent. There was NO booing and that was all made up by the haters. Apparently there were a few upset people that The Special Needs Children were not asked to come on the floor as well but I honestly didn't see anything like that..The Harlem Globetrotters are, as everyone else, huge fans of the show. So the fact that the kids got to spend half-time meeting them seemed like a real treat. Cara going onto the Court was so cute, it seemed like she felt really special and it looked like everyone had a great time. I mean, what this did for them was HUGE, as most people I spoke to didn't even know they were still around. It made me want to go see them, that's for sure!
I was also happy that they addressed the "helper" that they have and explained that she is not a nanny. I feel that a helper is part-where a nanny is more full-time. I respect that fact that she does not want to be on camera.
"Get Me A Paper Towel!" Well I was excited personally to see Family Outing because of the interest of the Please Touch Museum. I wanted to know it it would be worth it to take the hike to have the kids enjoy it. I personally having young children to not like to go anywhere where they will go get messy and paint. So I was super proud of Kate for handling their paintings so well that they were making for Daddy while he was away. Going to paint at that canvas place looked really fun, and I hope to do something like that with my kids someday. Also I really LOVED seeing the kids at the Museum, it looks like a really fun place to take the kids! The Ferris wheel looked like a real hit! (This was obviously when Jon was off with his mom and all of the "photos" went down). And this was, as most of us speculated, what he was going to talk about. I personally was very happy that he was going to address what was going on. Whether or not anyone will believe the truth, or just be nasty just to put them down, I never thought Jon wasn't going to discuss what was going on and address the rumors. Lo and behold, 3 minutes left of the show, my baby starts screaming with a wet diaper and I missed the last 3 minutes of the show. But as speculated, it was I heard the "best" cliffhanger that they could have done for the show. What do you think? UPDATE: OK, in between life I finally sat down and go to watch the end of the show. I was really upset that they took down their interview room! I plan on taking it myself and putting in my own basement. How sad? They were really going for the full emotional tug of the heartstrings. Jon unhappy with not being able to have a life outside of just being a stay-at-home dad. Kate finally happy with where she is but he isn't. Ive been there and it was just devastating for me to see. The poor guy cant even have a fun night out without people ripping it apart as something else. My heart bleeds for them but I am confident that they will get through this. I really wish Jon had something to call his own so that he, like so many stay-at-home moms out there, could feel fulfilled. Kate currently has a little time at home now and I hope that they are spending the time alone together doing something fun with the kids! I wish them all the best!
