I bet the old neighborhood is breathing a sigh of relief. The latest rumor is that Kate might move to North Carolina and become a Southern Belle.
If she has to move that far away, maybe SHE has worn out her welcome.

I was thinking about the businesses in their area. With all of the media following Jon and Kate around, the local businesses must be disgusted also. I'm not sure it would be very inviting to have the craziness in your stores, whether it be inside or out in the parking lots. Maybe it's good for business at first, but after a while they must cringe when they see the family coming through the doors. JMO

Wanted to add....I've seen on the News how businesses get frustrated when Stars such as Jessica Simpson, and Britney Spears draw a crowd into their stores. The Managers have chased the Paps out and even called the Police. So I'm wondering how your regular stores like Target, Grocery stores and Party City, feel? I think even if they pull out of the show, it's going to take a long time before the media leaves them alone. They'll be followed around no matter where they live...for a while anyway. TMZ still tracks down child stars from waaaaaay back in the 60's and 70's, so now that their name is well known, they'll be followed. Sad! I don't think they realized just how stressful this part of the fame would be on all of them. Like Jon had said, "You get caught up in it", and they both did exactly that.

They have enough money to have things delivered to the house. They buy everything in bulk or so it seemed from her having the kids lug huge containers of juice up the stairs. It seems really odd to me. Do the kids really go through that much food/juice? I used to go to a friend's house and they had a bunch of kids and people around. The mom shopped at a normal grocery store. I could see shopping at Sam's, but she supposedly has a whole thing of bread delivered to their house. Of course, they are a sandwich kind of family. Does she ever make anything like a big pot of spaghetti with homemade meatballs or mac/cheese with homemade chicken breast tenders, mini cheeseburgers, etc.? I've never seen her make any kid food. I got shot down for thinking that 5 year olds might not care for hummus. I went to a church thing where they had chickpeas in something and I noticed everybody left them on the plate. They're supposedly nutritious. That equals who wants to eat them? I know a mom who did like her and when their child grew up, all they craved was potato chips, candy bars, ice cream, sodas and everything they couldn't have growing up. As a result, they are obese and unhealthy. And no, it isn't me.

There is such a thing called GRACE! Trailer trash Kate does not have this. After bilking the community out of their cash and goodwill she doesn't know how to be a good neighbor. After all it's allll about Kate and her bank account.

This includes churches with people who work hard for their money.
She should be ashamed of this most of all. Maybe she will donate some containers of juice and paper towels. I see her as being a big tightwad while expecting others to give, give, give to her. Maybe she got that 20.00 coupon refunded. At least she got her showerhead. Twenty dollars is probably nothing to them these days. How can she say anything with her personal trainer, spa treatments, new wardrobe, and whatever other perks she has. I'm not jealous. I'm just saying how can she browbeat someone with all the money she wastes on things she could do without like tanning.
She looked pretty rough in the Pet Smart pics. Did her team quit? Is that what she normally looks like without wardrobe, makeup and hair people?

I feel very sorry for the residents of North Carolina if that's where this nasty hag is eyeing to move next. This woman is nothing but a user and the people of PA and this country should stop funding her selfish ways. Kate Gosselin is pathetic.

I feel sorry for them too, because no matter where she goes, she's taking the media with her. I think she enjoys the attention, even though she says it's ruining her life. You can see she really does enjoy it. Also wanted to say, My MIL came from a family of 16 kids, and they lived in the country...very poor, but a happy brood! I feel so bad for the 8 kids, but whats happening to Jon and Kate...well this is the price you pay for the life they chose to live.

Kate Gosselin is a media whore. She clearly has major issues and needs the attention for herself. This show isn't about the kids at all but about feeding Kate's massive ego and never ending quest for money and free things. This woman is such a con and anyone who watches this show has to be clueless.

You said a mouthful. I wonder when the faithful and gullible Gosling gang here will get a clue. Why can't they see it?

Vent those feelings.

Why was she so prominently featured on the OCC promos? Was Jon even in the bike riding scenes? He and the kids are usually pushed back. One of these days she will fall from her thrown and her crown will go tumbling off. Most predict it will be soon.

Too many spatulas swats on the head, probably.

(And dare I say that there's a Kate-clone on the boards here, responsible for those noggin swats ...?)

too many spoon/spatula swats

Have you seen how the kids look lately? I'll be when she gets under stress or is under the influence, it may be even worse. Perhaps the bodyguard is actually there to take care of the kids when she becomes inebriated or when she flips out like the mother in any of the abusive movies you may have seen.

I'll think of some later.

The bad thing for her is that now that she has been on tv so long, she is known everywhere. She could maybe move to a remote village in Mexico or Costa Rica or some third world country or she could go Muslim and dress head to toe in black with her body covered head to toe and only eye slits. If she opens her mouth, though, it's over.

kate isnt going to move to a remote village or mexico...she craves all this publicity.but i am wondering if she has to give up the fancy new house because of the divorce.or maybe its karma because of her greediness when she was going to churches asking for "love offerings". i also wonder if the new body guard can support her in a way she has become accustom.

It will be a matter of public record now. People can access public records, including their divorce when it is final.
