Kate Gosselin Takes Her Kids To A Corn Maze — But An Eyewitness Claims They Didn't Have Any Fun!

Posted Mon, November 1, 2010 1:58pm EST

Did Kate Gosselin’s eight kids get cheated out of a good time on Saturday (Oct. 30)? An eyewitness claims that Kate made the kids leave as soon as the TLC cameras were put away. What a bummer!

Life sure does look like a lot of fun for the Gosselin family on TLC‘s Kate Plus 8. But looks can be deceiving. When Kate Gosselin and her eight children with ex-husband Jon arrived at a corn maze near their Pennsylvania homestead on Saturday (Oct. 30), an eyewitness claims their fun was over before it even began! According to a mom blogger, Kate only let the kids run loose in the maze for the cameras and as soon as filming wrapped, the kids were rounded up and driven away. Where is the fun in that?

“Kate stopped to give the kids instructions, lots of instructions. Don’t break the corn, stay in the rows? She exuded no warmth when dealing with her kids,” blogs the fellow Wernersville, Penn. resident, who noticed that the kids — 6-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, Joel and 10-year-old twins Cara and Madelyn – looked afraid to make a move without their mom’s OK. “The one thing I didn’t hear was ‘have fun,’ which is my number one instruction to my kids at all times when we go to a place like a corn maze.”

Guess what costumes the Gosselin kids wore for Halloween!

The blogger reports that after receiving Kate’s list of do’s and don’ts, the kids were set free inside the maze, but even that was controlled by the camera crew! “They looked like they really wanted to cut loose and run and play, but that was not to be. [The camera crew] would get a distance from the kids and then yell for the kids to try to find them so they could film them running and having fun, oblivious of the maze paths. This lasted for about fifteen minutes,” explains the blogger (who’s a mom and counselor), who was sad to realize that the kids weren’t going to be allowed to finish the maze. “When the filming was over the kids were collected back at the maze exit.” Isn’t that sad, HollyMoms? Wouldn’t you let your kids run around and have fun considering it was a perfect fall weekend with great weather in Pennsylvania?

Their father, Jon, wasn’t happy about their trip to the corn maze, either. He took to his Twitter (of course!) to make sure that everyone knew that Kate and the kids were filming without his consent, even though a judge dismissed his request to block the show from being filmed.

Kate’s 11th nanny quits

The kids weren’t the only ones playing up to the camera. According to the eyewitness, Kate was way overdressed to be spending an afternoon in a field! “Kate stepped out, ready for her wild romp in the corn field in perfect makeup and hair, a stylish jacket and black leggings with stiletto high heeled boots,” she writes. Seriously! High heels? What was she thinking? Funnily enough, Kate’s impractical attire came back to haunt her. “She occasionally complained that people were asking her to walk too fast since she was in skinny high heels, and at one point as she walked away I giggled to myself as a long strand of corn husk attached to her stiletto was quite reminiscent of a long piece of stray toilet paper one might unknowingly have under their shoe as they exited a bathroom.” HollyMoms, does that image bring a smile to your faces?

Jon’s life coach tells HollyBaby.com that he really has changed

But we can’t help but feel bad for those kids. They’re trotted out in public for photo opportunities and filming of their realty show and then put right back in the family van to be whisked back home. They didn’t get to actually enjoy the fun corn maze activities that most children would be allowed to participate in. Sure, they have a video documentary of their childhood thanks to the TLC show, but sadly, happy memories are missing from the final cut.

Mady and Cara did not look afraid to run and cut loose. They did. They ran off on their own. It’s not that they weren’t allowed to finish the maze. The group ended up at the entrance and they were still filming. They also went home to their very own haunted basement which is funner than standing outside eating a hotdog. The kids had a lot of fun.

I find it interesting that people who don’t approve of this woman who stalks the Gosselin family are automatically placed in the group of Kate fans.
The nosy neighbor has problems and should leave the family alone.
Does that mean that Kate is right? Of course not.
It’s not as if we have to pick a winner and a loser. Both of these women are horrible and they are both wrong.
Kate needs to pull her kids off television and allow them some privacy.
The nosy neighbor needs to address her own mental health issues and own her actions. Leave the family alone!!!!!

This is all ridiculous.
Kate Gosselin is not a good mother, it shouldn’t take much for people to realize that parents should support their children, not the other way around.
As for the stalking that WG is accused of? I completely agree that it is wrong, wrong, wrong!!!
This woman has issues that do not deserve to be desribed here. She is not a fan, nor is she licensed to practice in her field. She is not a reporter or a journalist. She is a stalker who has devoted the past several years to spying on this family. It’s sick.

Go figure, there is a picture up on the right hand side of this page with Heidi Klum with her kids at a pumpkin patch. Heidi too is wearing boots.

Of the hiking kind.

ROTFLMAO!

ROFLMAO! Kate looks ridiculous in her body stocking with boots and ski parka. So 80’s.

As for Kate and BFF Jamie – those pics of them at the park are not recent, they were taken long before Jamie started working for Kate as a nanny. Not sure if she was on Kate’s or TLC’s payroll.

You kate fans are really ridiculous. If ONE person says one negative thing about kate, you people attack and attack way below the belt. Shame on you all. Even Tony Devonali is attacked and smeared because kate couldn’t dance! There was a concerted effort to vote on DWTS so Tony would not win. That is amazing to me. No matter who it is, their credentials are questioned, such as Dr Glass, even Dr La Fair is harrassed. THe writer for Huffington post? One supporter even checked tax rolls to make sure her parents owned property there. Even said she was going to the property to make sure the writer could see what she rep orted. One supporter wished Jon would be hit by a car, in the hospital for 6 months and rehab for another year. Do you people not any shame? Why try to vilify a person simply because they don’t worship at the feet of kate? I really an imbalanced following this woman has. Shame on you all for the libeous and vicious remarks you are making. BOTH sides need to stop. This has gone way over fans and non fans. WAY over the line. Why take things so personally? This is NOT how normal people act. Some of you need to be sued for libel on BOTH sides. Grow the hell up.

Lola, I beg to differ.
The children do not look happy these days. I am in no way a supporter of filming these kids.
I blame Kate for setting up a situation that expolits her children. That in no way excuses or justifies WG’s obsessive and inappropriate actions.
WG is one sicko I’d worry about.

It seems to me that when the truth is spoken about what actually goes on with filming these children, her fans scream STALKING. If this reporter had made up a lie and said the kids were having fun and their mother was so attentive than they would have eaten it up with forks and spoons. I’m glad that there was someone there who actually witnessed what most of us have known for quite some time, its all for filming and nothing more. The children are taken from their homes to make TLC and Kate Gosselin money and nothing more. It’s not about playing, it’s about the ole mighty dollar signs in their mothers eyes. The stalking crap here and everywhere else I have read coming from their fans is nothing but baloney. Now take that fans of KG and put it between two slices of bread and eat it.

Tina, You may be a nice lady, IDK but please stop calling this reporter names and making false accusations just because she was there and reported the truth. Your protectiveness of Gosselin is not healthy, everyone else knows that the children are only taken to these type of outings for filming and nothing more.

You can keep saying this until you are blue in the face, but that doesn’t mean that it is true.

She has had a Gosselin Blog for over a year now. I think she qualifies, particularly being in their direct area – down the street – to put entries on her Gosseling blog that pertains to the, GASP, Gosselins.

You don’t like the message, so you want to crucify the messenger.

BTW, she is not the first that talked about how the children are worked. Those claims from different reporters and people that were their date back to the filming of Dutch Wonderland, where the kids were observed doing a whole lot of nothing, sitting around in the heat, waiting for the scenes to be shot, in addition to having to do them over.

Heck, on one of the outtake shows, they showed Kate and all the kids on the bed “reading” the little mouse story that they were promoting as it was coming out as a movie. That outtake show showed them retaking at least 4 times the scene on the bed, trying to get them all to say “Next on Jon and Kate Plus Eight” altogether. Who knows how long it actually took for them to get that shot, it could have been hours.

Further, The members Real Housewife shows and other “reality” shows have spoken a lot that they do takes and retakes as well as there being some loose scripting. Why would Kate Plus Eight be the only ones that don’t?

Face it, it is a farce and the kids are nothing more than little moneymakers who do not, unfortunately, get most of the money that they have earned SINCE THEY WERE TODDLERS! These kids have been WORKED since before they could talk.

Congrats to you for supporting the slave labor of minors.

No. Just stating fact. Running an obsessive hate blog about your neighbor doesn’t qualify you as a reporter. I’m sure stalkers would be thrilled if blogging about their victims excused their behavior. I’m sure the police believe them when they say they were just “reporting”. WG’s blogging is another facet of her stalking.

Unbelievable that she only takes her kids out for recreation when they are filming otherwise she struts through parking lots heading for mani and pedi sessions by herself. Does she ever take these kids out including school shopping without a camera crew in tow? Why does she feel she can only do vacations and simple things with her kids with a camera crew only, otherwise she leaves them at home locked in a attic till filming resumes?

Yes. There have been paparazzi pics of her and Jamie at the park w/the kids. Pictures of her taking the kids to concerts. The kids had a pool party that the paparazzi took pics of too. Talk about nosy people. Khaters want to know every detail of their lives and then complain they have no privacy.

Oh, and let’s not forget how Kate Gosselin whined on National TV on how because her purse was full of bills and Jon had halted filming that she couldn’t take her children to see the Statue of Liberty as they had planned to film. The children were so heart broken of the canceled filming that Kate never managed to take them there until…………..DRUM ROLL PLEASE…….They resumed filming months later, and THEN, with TLC/Figure 8 film crew in tow, the children finally got to see the Statue of Liberty. There was no clear word as to why Kate never took them herself, since on TV she was whining that the children were heartbroken. Nope Kate waited until TLC would foot the bill, and made them work in a heat advisory ALL DAY LONG.

Kate doesn’t take them places when the dime is on her and a camera isn’t following her.

Kate Gosselin sucks as a mother, period.

The mommy hate blogger used to hang out at the Gosselin fence gawking at the kids. Instead of spending Easter with her own children, she was busy taking pics of the Gosselins. She kept them up until she was made to take them down. She still posted pics of their house. She loves the attention of being an insider. So the kids weren’t at the maze very long. They probably had other stuff to do. No one knows their schedule. Or, maybe they had to leave because the crazy lady was there.

Tina, you are out and out lying about this and working overtime to discredit her because you don’t like that it has been exposed that the kids are WORKED and not just filmed playing around which has been the battle cry of Kate fans for years. That the kids are just filmed as they are playing.

There is first hand PROOF that this is not the case. You don’t like it so you attack the messenger.

Time to move on. If you had any real care for the Gosselin children, you would not be supporting their exploitations.

I did not lie. I’m not angry. The kids weren’t at the maze very long. Big deal. You Khaters think that anyone who opposes the hatred of Kate is in awe of her. Not true at all. The hatred directed at Kate is wrong. Using her children as an excuse to hate on her is moreso. It’s not exploitation for children to be on a tv show.

Amy and HollyBaby,

Thank you for publishing this article and helping shine the light on what the Gosselin children experience because of the their tv show. They’re not allowed to be children and their reality is only for tv. It is very sad that they’re regularly trotted out for filming and photo ops instead of being allowed to experience a childhood free from tv cameras and paparazzi.

Oh, for crying out loud. Stop trying to detract from the real issue which is the kids were WORKING, didn’t get to participate in the great seasonal activities that were there for them and were whisked away after only 20 minutes at the farm.

The issue is: “They’re trotted out in public for photo opportunities and filming of their realty show and then put right back in the family van to be whisked back home. They didn’t get to actually enjoy the fun corn maze activities that most children would be allowed to participate in. Sure, they have a video documentary of their childhood thanks to the TLC show, but sadly, happy memories are missing from the final cut.”

Why do you refuse to acknowledge this?

The blogger did nothing that any ‘fan’ wouldn’t have loved to do – watch a tv show being taped.
The only ‘unhealthy’ individual is people like you who point fingers and try to cause intentional damage and pain to someone who has done nothing wrong. Go ahead and follow through with your silly threats to report her. Who are you going to report her to? Steve? lol He and any real authority in the area will laugh in your face.

It’s really sad, watch the show, you can tell the kids fear her, and who wants to watch that on TV and maybe that is why she is no longer the cash cow at TLC???

Soooooo maybe its time to for her to brush off that nurses license go back to work like normal people who have 8 kids do, then Jon can be a stay at home dad and live over the garage!
