Kate Gosselin: Fame is Her Game

In Touch said it was indeed Hannah.  They have video!

the article doesn't say Hannah on this occasion but one that happened on Aug 15 when the police were called and Hannah was taken by ambulance to the hospital because Kate kept trying to pull her out of Jon's car. She said she hurt her arm pulling on her.  Or that's what I got from it. I think it probably was Hannah and I'm surprised because she was always Kate's fave. Wow just wow.....

Isn't 13 about the age when kids can decide which parent they would prefer to live with?  Although I am sure Kate would make the child's life a nightmare in any way she can, if a kid decided to live with Jon.

And, about 2 years ago, when Hannah was around 11, there was another incident where she wanted to stay with Jon and not return to Kate's.  I think the judge forced her to obey the custody agreement that time.  It seems like Hannie has been wanting to get away from ToxicMom for quite a while.

Wow is right! I never heard about that one.  She's such a bitch. She doesn't care what the kids want, she just doesn't want Jon to get them. She wants to be the one they want and it's killing her that she can't control them anymore.  I bet many of them have said they want to live with Jon at one time or another and I bet she's threatened, bribed and guilted them every time they said it.  I'm talking about the ones that she wasn't able to poison against him. You just know she's tried to turn them all against him. I just can't picture Cara not wanting a relationship with her dad, they were so close when she was young. I wonder what Kate has said against him. 

I guess Kate never learned the lesson that you need to love your kids more than you hate your ex. 

Edit: I just googled this story and there's a clip of the bitch on Dr. Oz, she's talking about how hard it is having an ex husband who doesn't see the value in uplifting his kids. I didn't watch the clip but it said she was referring to them  doing the show.  All she cares about is that fucking show. Why she hasn't been officially canceled is beyond my comprehension.  Didn't she only have three episodes this time? Why don't they just cancel this shit once and for all so she has to find something else to do?

This part of the article was interesting:

This violent showdown comes after “Jon and Kate had an emergency hearing with a judge after Hannah refused to go back to Kate’s house,” a source explains. On Aug. 11, “The judge granted Jon equal custody of Hannah until he and Kate go to trial.”

I suspect that Kate needs Hannie to be with her in order to have any hopes of keeping the show.  If Jon has custody, Hannah wouldn't be around for all the contrived parties and vacations.  Since she's already exiled Colin, Kate has to hang on to all the rest of the kids.  'Kate Plus 6' just  doesn't have the same ring to it.

I remember that, too. It does seem that way, and it's very interesting, as it always did seem that Hannah got preferential treatment from Kate.  I shouldn't be playing armchair psychologist, but perhaps because Hannah was treated better by Kate, she's the only one, at least of the sextuplets,  whose will has not been broken and who, therefore, is able to stand up for herself.

 

Remember the Mother's Day episode in the previous house when Kate had a special breakfast in bed, and she chose only the twins and Hannah to remain in the room with her while she ate?  If it was supposed to be genuinely relaxing for Kate and not just a TLC-scripted ruse, I can understand why she wouldn't have wanted all eight children having their typical knock-down drag-out fights around her bed as she tried to enjoy her special meal, but it seemed odd to single out one of the sextuplets to stay while  metaphorically slapping the other five in the face by kicking them out of the room. Even if she had wanted to have just one of the littler kids with her, it might have been a good time to pick one of the ones who wasn't quite so well-behaved and didn't get as much special time with Kate (maybe Collin, Joel, or Alexis) because without the other five sextuplets  to bounce off of, whichever  sextuplet was allowed to stay by himself or herself with the twins probably would have been very calm and would not have spoiled Kate's special treat.  She always set Hannah up to succeed and the rest of them to fail, then patted herself on the back when she correctly guessed that Hannah would succeed.

 

Then there was the incident with the cupcakes they frosted for their birthday, when the boys (I think it was all the boys who didn't get to eat their cupcakes, but it's been a long time since I saw the episode) didn't get to eat theirs because they didn't eat enough of their dinners to satisfy Kate, yet Hannah, who was spoon-fed and urged on by Mady but still didn't seem to eat any more than the boys did, was allowed to eat her cupcake.

 

Then, by way of contrast, there was an episode around that same time when Jon was in charge at dinner, and Hannah didn't get her piece of candy for dessert  because she wouldn't eat dinner. She tried to talk Jon into letting her have a piece of candy regardless, but he didn't cave. Hannie seemed almost surprised that she wan't able to talk Jon into letting her have the candy.  Then he told her that she could have a hug even though she hadn't eaten her dinner,,and she seemed pacified by that, which was very sweet.

 

I  realize that there were many more times when Kate said more positive things about Hannah than about the others, and there was at least once when she acknowledged that she was able to hold Hannah first and had bonded with her more, but these were the incidents that stood out to me.

 

It might be a bit hard for Kate to take when her de facto favorite is the first to turn on her, but the reasoning behind it might be very  logical.

Hannah clearly has received preferential treatment over the years, but I also wonder if she's had more responsibility as well. I've always seen her as the little mother hen, Kate's helper. I bet all that pressure is taking its toll. She probably just wants to be a kid. Jon may have his issues, but living in that micromanaged household is causing all of those kids massive stress.

Well, it's been confirmed that I'll be going straight to hell (duh!), because I read this as, "Even if she had wanted to have just one of the litter kids...."

No.  You wrote it correctly.  That's just how I read it.

Thank you 17 Wheatthins, that was probably mine. I did forget to put it under Jon's section. ;-)

No problem, @Chai! I just like to try to keep the threads orderly. :-) 

You posters here are so amazing; it's a pleasure to read what you all have to say!

Kate doesn't want any of the kids to be at Jon's because he might sue for child support.

Kate's favorites were the ones most like her: Maddie and Hannah.  Both "indoor girls" who were fearful of new experiences, and also organized, bossy, and belittled the boys the most.  

With the 16 yr old version of Maddie you can see how that translated. Something seems to have backfired with her Hannie

I, too, wonder precisely what it was that caused Hannah to defect.   Maybe she was less beaten down and had more confidence than the rest. and felt more empowered to call something as she saw it. Alexis probably would have gotten the same treatment Collin received had she been the one to rebel.

Oh Lordy, Kate, put on a one-piece already. Urp.

I'm not sure what the informal rule is concerning bikinis and age, or even if there is one,  but I'm not yet thirty, relatively fit, and worked hard to regain my body after back-to-back pregnancies, and I wouldn't embarrass my two-year-olds by wearing a 2-piece in public. I can't imagine putting adolescent children through the horror of it.

Have you ever been on a cruise ship?  There are apparently NO rules there, informal or otherwise.  We always get a cabin with a balcony and avoid the pool area completely.  There are some things there that you just can't un-see.

I know that Life and Style magazine isn't always the most truthful of publications but I believe every damn word in that article.  I'm pissed the hell off that the judge didn't listen to what Hannah was trying to say and just gave her back to that bitch.

Aren't the kids at an age where they can choose who they want to live with?  I'm sure she's poisoned the kids against Jon and made it to where they're afraid to go see him. She also probably tells them that Jon has no money so if they lived with him they'd have nothing. 

I swear, I've never in my life hated someone on tv like I hate this bitch.  I can usually find the good in a person but in Kate, I see no good. None at all.  I'm not a violent person at all, I consider myself to be a peace loving hippie chick but if I ever saw this bitch in person, I think I'd kick her ass.

Hi there! I always enjoy reading your posts. I agree with everything you've said.  Over in the 19 kids and counting thread I posted a link to an article that TLC dropped Jill and Derick due to his comments about the transgender teen, Jazz.  I wish and have for a long while that TLC would do the same to KG. (I think she moves heaven and earth to keep that gravy train going)  I loved it when she was fired for a while there. Nothing would warm the cockles of my heart then seeing her get her just desserts. She's an evil, greedy lying manipulative witch. I firmly believe in what comes around, goes around. Karma is going to bite her ass, good
