Bonnie Says: Is Kate Lying About Her Kids To Protect Them Or Her Image?

Kate lied and lied again about two of her sextuplets, Alexis and Collin, being expelled from school—and her lies are hurting them.

When the first reports appeared saying that two of her 6-year-old sextuplets, Collin and Alexis, had been expelled from their elite private school, Kate made a point of denying the reports.

And her denials were done in a very major way—on the Today Show, in People magazine and on Entertainment Tonight.

Now RadarOnline.com has reported that sadly the two children WERE in fact expelled after one of them harmed an adult at the school TWO TIMES. As well, both children were also abusive to other children in the school.

The kids want to move in with Jon!

This is a very disturbing situation for two reasons. Number one, it’s clear that Collin and Alexis, if not all the Gosselettes, are in need of help. They are CRYING OUT for help. And number two, their mother Kate is either in total denial about the seriousness of her childrens’ situation or she is just plain lying about it—and lies are NEVER a good idea.

“Kate lies to protect her image —whether it’s about herself or her children. It’s gotten to the point where she sees herself as a TV star first and a mother second,” says celebrity psychiatrist, Dr. Carole Leiberman. “As a TV star, she rationalizes that these are not lies, they are simply PR.”

The terribly scary thing about this is that Kate may be lying to herself, as well as us, in order to rationalize keeping the kids on TV and herself in the limelight. “If she continues denying that the kids TV appearances have anything to do with their acting out, then she won’t have to change her entire life,” believes psychotherapist Dr. Gilda Carle, of DrGilda.com.

Kate lied! Her kids were expelled for abusing an adult!

That means that little Collin and Alexis may not get the help they desperately need. “Hurting an adult at school shouldn’t be dismissed as their simply being spoiled bratts,” says Dr. Lieberman. “Their out of control behavior has severe psychologist roots.”

Doesn’t it seem like little Collin and Alexis must be totally stressed out by the demands of their realty show life, and their parents contentious divorce?

And the problem is that little kids don’t know how to talk about their problems. “Some kids hit and demonstrate aggressive and/or violent behavior when they are feeling frustrated and have no other way to express themselves,” explains clinical psychologist Dr. Sheila Forman.

Maybe they’ve tried to speak to their mom about their feelings, and maybe she isn’t listening. We saw Kate in action on Sarah Palin’s Alaska. When she asked her children if they wanted to stay on the Palin’s camping trip and they said yes, she told them, “You’re Palins, not Gosselins. Good bye!”

The message was clear—she WASN’T interested in their feelings—only her own.

Kate denied her kids were expelled on live TV!

Now, she’s keeping troubled kids in the spotlight and lying about their “issues.” But that lie to “save face” has just backfired because the truth always comes out, and now her kids are in the news again.

Kate—instead of spending time going on national TV to “lie” about a distressing situation, why don’t you devote more time to listening to your little Gosselettes and taking care of their needs?

Kate honey, the world is a dangerous place-your children will suffer through just like all of ours have. You can not protect them from their angry tempers, what you can do is show them that all actions have reactions and logical consequences. Expelltion from school is not new-is it a reason to protect them ? No certainly they have been to be protected from the circus like atmosphere that surrounds your lifestyle. You have done enough to provide for them for many years to come. Consider downsizing your home to something more manangeable and then set realistic goals for the future. There are many large families who dont need a 8,000 sq ft home. It is your responsibility to show them the way. I have fostered many children who come from families that think their children are perfect. Try telling that to the warden. He’s heard it before.

Now, I don’t like this show or the fact that they were able to convince a doctor they should have sextuplets in the first place. And I certainly don’t like Jon or Kate. HOWEVER – is it any surprise to anyone that she’s lying about what happens at her kids’ school? They’re *6*. Why is that any of your business? Why is that news? Yes, she put herself in the spotlight, and they put their kids in the spotlight to make $$$, but they’re KIDS. Do you really think this is only having to do with their parents being divorced? Please… Use your heads people! These kids have grown up on TV. Everything their parents tried to do to discipline the way normal families would have is scrutinized by the media and the public. This has clearly backfired on them. I don’t think the kids are crying out for attention, and I don’t think Kate is lying to be obnoxious. Sounds like she might just be trying to get through it. Why not leave them the hell alone?

Kate’s fan base is a bunch of TLC interns and lackeys afraid of losing their job experience.

Jon hasn’t been on air doing any interviews for ages, yet they say he is doing this. Jon is keeping his feet on the ground, his head out of the clouds and trying to get a life out of the media limelight.

Can’t say the same for Kate tho.

Kate has told so many lies she cant keep them straight. She wants everyone to thing she is a great mom but you are not a great mom when you are never home and spend little
time with them when you are. She needs to give them love
and let them see their relatives whether she like them or not. You can not tell me that she doesnt treat her kids the same way she treated Jon on TV. People dont change that much and she has probably gotten worst because she thinks she is a STAR.

TLC it doesn’t bother you that the kids are having problems, and taping them is probably just continuing those problems? These are children, who didn’t ever even have a choice to do this TV show, their mother agreed to do it. Her 15 minutes are way up I still don’t understand why she lies about the kids being expelled, has she not learned anything over the past 2 years someone will always find out the truth.

I feel bad for the kids if she was smart, she would stop all this TV show BS, get the kids out of the public eye, and into therapy, and go back to living a quiet life w/her children in the mansion that she LOVES!! and be glad for what you got

Bonnie I saw the picture of you and your daughter and I truly feel sorry for that child. You have led a HATE campaign against another mother. What makes you so perfect. This column is an example of your work and it is also an extension of YOU. You can’t be a very nice person. Your surveys are RIGGED just like your opinions about a person you don’t know. To say that Jon a man who couldn’t think he way out of a paper bag is RESPONSIBLE because he plays with the kids is UNFORGIVEABLE. If you have a husband I hope he is a good person because you truly aren’t. I WONDER WHAT SKELETONS YOU HAVE IN YOUR CLOSET? KARMA is a beautiful thing and I can’t wait for yours.

She has the house the kids bought by working; she has a job because of her kids (where is Twist of Kate?); she has money because of her kids; heck her kids ever paid for her boobs.

She doesn’t have friends, family, healthy relationships with her kids or anyone from what we’ve seen and seems like a deeply unhappy person unless she’s on the red carpet.

Wow! Excellent karma for Kate! The people like you that envy Kate must have very sad, empty lives. I’d much rather have my husband, kids, sisters, parents, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, co-workers, wonderful neighbors and happy doggie by my side through thick and thin than Kate’s bank account. That’s all she has going for her and HER KIDS EARNED IT AND ARE LOSING THEIR CHILDHOODS TO PAY FOR IT!

(TLC really needs to pay these “Kate fan” trolls better. They’re a sad, sorry lot.)

MAGGIE if you want to believe that LIE that is your priviledge. Just in case you didn’t see the shows Kate and Jon were both there working on tv with their kids.YOU MAKE ME SICK. Why are there so many weak women in this country? You overlook anything the man does and you don’t allow your boy children to become responsible men. You just want to join the ban wagon and be a part of something. I hope that if you are a parent you raised your kids. It is sad that our world has become a DUMPING SITE for HOME MADE TRASH!

Maggie I don’t know you but yes I strongly dislike Jon for everything he did. There is no Karma there. What’s funny is that you close a BLIND EYE to the truth. Jon didn’t have to do all that he did and maybe a PUBLIC APOLOGY is good enough for A JADED azz woman like you. If your husband slept around on you and stole money from your kids maybe you would do the same. But you know you sound like a dumb azz woman who would do anything to keep a man. I am so glad Kate has more guts than you.

The woman can’t help lying, she is really good at it. In a matter of fact that’s all she is good at. When the kids are older and start speaking for themselves she will be hiding at their McMansion in denial. I always thought that she was lying when she said the kids would rather be filming, its she who loves the limelight not the kiddies!!!!!!

TAKE this awful clown off TV for good. She has no talent and the kids are awful as a direct result of her!!

Kate has told many lies, and it is all on tape. In this instance, I think mostly her blabbering on Today and ET is to save face for herself, and to give the impression that filming them is A-OK. “They are doing wonderfully!”. It takes more time then a few weeks to be “wonderful” after what was reported at the school. She claims filming them has been nothing but positive? People have to be insane to believe that. The paps, the kids are treated like celebrities too, then go to school where they are not celebrities amongst the “normal” kids. I am quite sure some of the kids are jealous of them, and tease them or just don’t like them. Kids can be cruel. I really wish Kate would have stuck with the “no comment, we are dealing with this privately”. I would have respected that a lot more than going on TV once again to blab about her kids personal problems.

This is not surprising. The kids were showing signs of this behavior when they were even younger on the show towards their own parents. TLC (aka Discovery Health owned by Oprah Winfrey or HARPO) signed a multi-year multi-million dollar deal with Kate and the kids, plus, plus so they have to protect their investment…for now. They will use whatever pull and power they have to cover or blur the truth – other facts have alredy shown previous lies. Dont be surprised to see her show up on the View again as part of an ongoing tradeoff probably negotiated a long time ago for Barbara to get Oprah’s first interview. Welcome to the industry kids. Dont believe what you see or hear and take it all with a grain of salt. They make $$$ off your willingness to buy the lies.

The Gosslien 8 are celebrities. The early success of their TLC program is all they know. Throw in the divorce, their father’s juvenile behavior and it’s natural to see emotional backlash from one or all of the kids. Kate should never have appeared on the Today show announcing to viewers, “all’s well on the homefront”, we parents know it’s not. The kids are “prima donas” in their minds. For the sanity of the children, don’t film anymore programs involving the kids and for heavens sake, get the whole lot of you in therapy. It’s not too late to make lemonaide out of lemons.

I live near this family and those of us who know them, see them daily know exactly what this woman’s agenda is. She is the most rude, obnoxious, ignorant and demanding person we have ever encountered. We hoped, against all odds that when they moved here, they would be here for just a short time after having to endure her arrogant and absolute rudeness to any of us when we reached out to her.

Things the tabloids overlook would curl your hair the way this woman treats her children when the cameras aren’t there. There was, for instance one day while Kate was was with her twins and how she totally berated them for not walking quickly enough for her as she was heading into the Giant Food store. She nearly picked her daughter up by her shoulder as she yelled at her like she was an animal.

On another occasion, Kate was parked at a gas pump, not even pumping gas and looking around like she was waiting for someone. Sure enough, a young male pulled up in a Nissan, got out of the car, adjusted his camera lense, gave her the thumbs up sign and then she began to pump gas, acting like she was annoyed. Funny thing was, she kept swiping her card in the pump and still couldn’t get the pum to turn on. She motioned to the photographer to stop.

We sat there watching her as she walked into the station and began motioning in a frantic way. We don’t know what she was saying or what transpired but she must have paid with cash as she came back outside in a huff, went to her Toyota and began to pump the gas. She looked over at her photographer and gave him a thumbs up and he began to focus the lense on her once again while she looked away, pretending to be annoyed.

When she finished pumping gas, she walked up to the photographer and they engaged in conversation and then she walked back to her car, pulled away and he followed her. An obviously staged photo op.

Nice try Seana74 — but it won’t work.

LancasterMOM is simply reiterating one of the same kinds of typical Kate-experiences MANY OTHERS have observed when encountering Supreme-Queen-of-Mean, THE Kate Irene Kreider.

Did you think Kate became a rude arrogant b*tch yesterday? According to innumerable accounts from various people from all walks of life – Kate’s been an insufferable, bullying shrew for years and years.

What a shame that no shrink has ever figured out how to fix a raging malignant narcissist. They’re permanently TOXIC!

This is all as most of us have suspected but I don’t understand why people don’t speak out. Why aren’t the authorities contacted? Even if they say there is nothing to be done, at least the groundwork would be laid for what may be future reports. If enough people report incidents, authorities might listen.

Also, perhaps you could shed some light on why people cater to her so – stay quiet about her actions, give her preferential treatment in stores, etc. What are people so afraid of?
