I TIVO J&K+8 and was surprised when I saw the 2 dogs. Did I miss something? Or is the episode where they add the dogs yet to come? I thought they were a bit crazy to add 2 dogs when they already have 8 kids, but that's cool that they get to have a pet! I didn't think Kate would ever allow that!

They got the dogs a few (couple?) episodes ago. There was much discussion about it in February's thread.

I just had to come back to say it is the combination of the botox & the FAKE eyelashes! She just doesn't look like herself at all. Her face looks like she has lost some expression/movement / too much makeup / eyelashes / etc. Am I alone here?!

I've pretty much missed the show for a while, seeing the dogs the other day surprised me.

Did they get TWO puppies at the same time? OMG, the pets forum would have something to say about that. Of course, I'm utterly amazed at people who get one puppy and have a large family. It's just so much work (lazy cat owner here). Puppies can be like having toddlers!

I caught the episode where they moved out of the old house (not knowing that they had a new house). Watched the new house episode them on you tube. DH was laughing when Joel pooped and she couldn't figure out where he was in the giant house...honestly, to me it seems like TOO big of a house! Of course, what do I know (with 7 people (including Grandma) and three cats squeezed into a 1750 sq foot home with no basement everything seems giant to me these days.

Also, Oprah said that Season 5 starts in May. So... Does that mean there was NO break in filming?

I'm confused because I thought the commercials were calling this week's episode the finale yet there is a new episode on the 16th.

No March 23 is the season finale of JK8.

I'm chillin out watching LPBW with a glass of wine. I'm pretty sleepy and I don't know how willing I'm going to be to be jarred out of this serene family show into the icy, sharp reality of the Gosselin's life.

I like how the roloffs manage to deal so graciously with the disappointment of Matt wanting to go home early. They all felt that he was jumping the gun, but nobody called to the mat for it. They realized that he is the way he is (hadr headed and obsessive) and that they would be more relaxed without a tense, worrying Matt along on their boat trip. The last shot before the break: mom on the rail, looking out at the mississippi, with two of her boys hands wrapped aeound her while they quietly watched the sunset.

They;re just so chill.

Looks like Kate doesn't like the dogs. What did she think two puppies woud be like? She is just not a happy woman.
post #49 of 365
Did anyone see them on Oprah? I do think Kate looks a little smoother but not too much different to me.....They did say they no longer film in the bedrooms because the kids are older and need privacy...so it would seem that they ARE listening when ppl talk about those things. I also thought that Hannah, once again at Mommy's side looks very grown up compared to the other littles...

Off to watch the new show....

Missed last week, so thanks for the info about it!!

Subbing so that I don't miss the chatter!

I have to admit; I hated my puppy, too! For maybe 3 or 4 months I asked my husband to bring her back and I will never get a puppy again. (I had only ever had adult rescues before.) So I empithize with Kate saying cranky things about the dogs!

I thought it was SO cute when the little kids cleaned up the mess. (one of them sprayed the bottle and the other one used the paper towel.) And the dogs are adorable. Really cute when they were playing together in the backyard.

Watched the vet show last night. I loved how the puppies ran and kissed each other, very sweet. My few observations about this episode:

The fact that Kate threatened to take the dogs back if they didn't help was quite frankly disgusting. Yes they are old enough to help, but she is the adult and ultimately those dogs are HER and Jons responsibility.

I just do not like Hannahs attitude. She is quite snotty to all the littles when she talks and it bugs me, but I blame Kate for that because she is only emulating what she sees at home

The house looks nicely decorated I wonder if she did it herself or had help?

I thought Jon handled going out with ALL 8 alone quite well.....Were you watching Kate? It can be done! I think he is much calmer when she is away...not that I blame him

I thought overall it was a good episode, they were pretty nice to each other on the couch and other then the snippy comment about returning the dogs she seemed to be in an ok mood, though she WAS missing from most of the episode.

I meant to watch this but got up and went outside and forgot about it. :

I bet it's on You tube somewhere, they were on the tail end of the show and they were on satellite so honestly the picture looked weird to me anyway
post #55 of 365
I thought that she was cute to begin with. Not "beautiful", but just natural and normal. I liked that she was in her lounge pants, with bed head, etc. Now it seems that she is doing things to her face that, IMO, just don't need to be done. I think she is much more attractive in her normal state. Maybe the satellite had something to do with it -- but I swear she had loss of expression, and fake lashes, which are two things I have not seen on her before.

I did catch last night's episode. Their new home/land is so spacious. VERY nicely decorated!

I like the fact that there is no filming allowed in the bedrooms anymore. The kids can have their own space, off-limits to cameras. I think that is a very important step.

I still just can't decide why I am watching at this point. It's not like I can "relate" to them at all anymore. I was losing interest for sure, then after the recent rumors I guess I am just waiting to see what is going to happen.

The Oprah interview was just ODD. Jon and Kate did not seem happy at all, it seemed very tense/staged/rehearsed/something. Oprah seemed... I dunno, uninterested? Not impressed? There was definitely some tension surrounding that situation. I would like to know when it was filmed. (It was not live.)
post #56 of 365
My guess is that Oprah has an inkling of what is happening there and was not allowed to comment on it. I wish I could watch it again. I do think the kids, for once, were well behaved while doing this sort of thing.
post #57 of 365
Yeah, the Oprah interview was "off," somehow. The defensive response that the kids have been filmed their entire lives so that's just their "normal," did nothing to convince me that this is a good idea. Lots of things become "normal" for children.....doesn't mean it's good.

I thought Kate missed a wonderful opportunity when Oprah asked about how they got the kids to sit and be quiet. Instead of, "I bribed them with lollipops!" how about, "They're doing great, aren't they?! They're great kids." and throw those poor children a bone for once.

The episode was another sad display to me. The total irresponsibility that they are displaying with regards to those animals is shocking. Four yr. olds using ONE paper towel to mop up dog pee (and thus getting it all over her hands), with seemingly the only supervision around being the camera crew was disturbing to me. Likewise, Jon's complete disregard for the vet's post-surgery instructions. Wow. How could you not put the dog on a leash and keep her calm so her stitches don't burst? And the dogs jumping on the kids seems like a dangerous direction to me. We have a 120 lb. Mastiff and he was never allowed to dominate the children like that. That's a nightmare waiting to happen.

Jon's barking out orders to those kids never ceases to amaze me. Do they ever smile or say please/thank you? Kate sure goes on a lot of trips for a mom using the show to stay at home with her kids. And it's a strange thing to me that what the kids have done is news to her on the interview couch. Do they not speak on the phone while she's away? A child dumping a shampoo bottle all over the bathroom counter and finger painting with it definitely would have made the cut for my, "So how did it go today?" conversation.

I still want to eat those kids. Alexis (?) covering her little face and laughing at the vet? Does not get cuter than that! And little Joel just melts me.

OK THAT is what I forgot! I too thought it was very unsafe for the dog to jump on the kids....and it's only a puppy. The dogs are going to be huge and the kids are still going to be small....and the cleaning the pee up themselves...not ok, I hope they washed their hands after???

I didn't hear her say she gave the kids lollipops, I was clearly not paying attention! And I too thought it was odd that she is so unaware of what goes on when she is not home, this is not the first example of that. I know everything that goes on when I am gone, which is not often, I would want to be even more in the loop if I were gone alot!

I thought it was interesting in the beginning of the episode that the two boys were pretending to spank each other. Makes me wonder if J&K only use the time-out mat.

Seems like Mommy is on a "business trip" a lot. I'm glad that Jon was staying with the kids in her absence. I bet that not many Dads would be comfortable caring for 8 young kids on their own. I know my DH used to be terrified when I went to the store and left him along with DS1. (He's gotten better, though.)

The repeat of the photo shoot was interesting. I felt so sad for Mady when she totally bonded with the GH person who played the piano with her. She really needs an adult in her life who thinks she is fabulous...rather than a problem.

I'm glad Nala is OK. I felt bad for Hannah (I think it was Hannah's little pony). I don't think they should have singled her out as being the owner of the toy. Seems a lot of guilt to put on one so young. It's not like she wanted Nala to get sick.

Was it just me or was it disgusting that the vet gave them the toy back?? Ewwww
