Rate Kate Gosselin’s new hair and new guy!

I ran across these photos last night of Kate Gosselin out to lunch with a man. She has a new long luxurious hair-do and a very young man with a bad ski jacket at her side.

For your gawking pleasure, check out this link to see the hair and the guy and then click back to discuss.

I think Kate is a very pretty woman and the hair is flattering. (She used to have long hair when she and Jon first got married.) I’m sure she needed a change after getting divorced and this helped her feel like a new woman.

However, I don’t have any idea how a mother of 8 is going to care for that hair style unless she has completely relegated the child care over to nannies. That is some high-maintenance hair that I don’t think most mothers would have time to maintain or make look good. I would be sticking that up in a pony tail all the time, which pretty much defeats the purpose.

On to the man: I  guess she just wants to laugh and feel good because certainly a man of that age couldn’t possible be interested in being saddled with 8 children. I guess there’s no harm in dating  — as long as she’s not bringing him home to the kids.

What do you think of Kate’s new style and her lunch partner?

Eww, and Eww…I think her hair looks ridiculous considering how short it was before and we all know it’s obviously hair extensions. I saw a clip of her hosting the View a while back I think and it looked great (without the spikey stuff). Why not just grow it out? As far as her little man, I’m sure he is just wanting to get his 15 minutes of fame…he knows cameras follow her everywhere she goes. I doubt he is seriously wanting a relationship with that much baggage. Then again, who knows?

um, just cause she’s out with a man does not mean she’s dating him. he could be her cousin or old friend or lots of things. But good for her going out and having fun, and I like the new do…she looks great!

Also, just because he looks younger then her doesn’t mean he is. I think she’s in her early 30’s. Her hair is way better then the reverse mullet thing she had going on.

The guy was her hair dressers assistant. He was in town to help Kate pick the right hair products. He is gay….look at the jacket.

I say if she can maintain the mane… more power to her. I had hair longer than that until about a year ago. And as u mentioned Theresa, mine ALWAYS on a daily basis ended up in a ponytail. Allthough I do have to say, it made me FEEL sexier. What I hated was the COST associaiton with it. More shampoo, conditioner and not mention the cost for an all over color! YIKES!! Funny though, I find that my short hair is more work than I had originally thought. I mean, when u wake up with severe bed head.. I have to wet it and blow dry it every morning versus um… just putting it in a ponytail. lol

I don’t think that’s a “new man” for her. IF she is seeing someone, I don’t think she will make it that known right off. She doesn’t seem the type to invite being spoken ill of. I hate to say it.. I really do.. but she is smarter than that. Now Jon… that’s another story! lol Dude went wild like a preacher’s child in college.

Why do people think it’s ok to be so rude about Kate Gosselin? I wonder if they’d say what they’re saying about her to her face, or does it just make them feel good about themselves to bash her anonymously on the internet? Sad, sorry refection on American women today, ugh.

And that dude is her hairdresser and definitely gay. He looks like a nice guy.

Is it possible for a woman's hair...

Kate has proven repeatedly she is more interested in the stardom than she is in being a Mom. Any mom of 8 would not be out looking for husband number 2 they would be at home. In fact any newly divorced Mom should be putting her social life on hold and doing whatever she can to make sure her children have an emotionally stable enviornment. Those kids have to be having the “was it me?” guilts etc. I did hear she was going to take them to a therapist in a few weeks. For the children’s sake can we PLEASE stop giving this press ^#*!& attention?

@Is it possible..My hair grows very fast and yes it could grow within an inch or so of that length in six months or so…When mine was that long, all I did was roll it with hot rollers while it was damp, sprayed (sp) it with hair spray, then dried it with a dryer, spent a total of about 20-25 minutes on it, not half the day..It’s all in what you preceive as a lot of work..

@ Becky, you obviously perceive time in a “time flies” manner like you do with the work you put in for your hair (when it was that long) << I am not attacking you here lol. Cause my hair grows fast, very fast. But the back of her hair was shaved down within 1.4 of inch to her scalp with clippers on that last cut. NO WAY it could have grown back in 6 months to that length. A year, maybe.

I don’t care for her new hairstyle. It is too young for her and certainly not practical with 8 children. She does anything to stay in the spotlight. I wish she would just realize what she is doing to herself, her family and children. She is very selfish. She should reach out to her parents, siblings and just live a quiet life for those beautiful children of hers, but I guess this is exactly what she wanted when she shopped her kids around for a show when they were born.

LOL…you guys are so funny! I had nothing to add to the other topic today, so I was just checking in and saw this topic. Please mark the date down and reference it to*** MJG did not make a comment on a blog because she knows nothing about steroids****.

@ Sara Thomas, glad to have you and I am thinking you must be new as posters here have said equally as rude things to others on this blog ( me included) and ( to my knowledge) there are only about 6 or 8 of us who actually know any of the others in person. That IS, unless some of you have secretly gone to lunch without inviting me. I know some were mentioning it last month. LOL

I, for one, cannot even fathom thinking about starting a new relationship ( if I had 8 kids under 8) . How long has she even been divorced…a month? LIke FCM, I would have to put my kids needs ahead of mine in that department and I will certainly acknowledge that FCM knows WAY more about it than I possibly could…so I will take her 3:20 post as one that Kate ( and others) should heed.

Surely this is just a family friend? Yes, she does deserve to get out with the kids and have some adult time…..absolutely!

@ tiger, too bad but you will have to endure them once in a while as the blog is called MOMANIA and Kate is a MOM. I for one, enjoy your perspective as it is so much better than others who criticize Theresa for her choice of topics…at least you are humorous.

Dear catlady — the numbers speak otherwise — I posted a lovely thoughtful piece on steroid use in high school this morning and got very low numbers from it. I posted this on Kate, took a nap, woke up and my numbers were through the roof. I haven’t mentioned her in a few months and her hair does look great. You must make your friends log on and join in the thoughtful discussions and then I won’t have to resort to kate. At least I’ll only put her on when she changes her hair, gets caps on her teeth or otherwise changes her appearance.

@MJG…you’re right….i forgot that this was a forum where mom’s could unite and share the bond of motherhood. Supporting each other through the trials and tribulations that only a Mom can truly know. Sharing empathy and goodwill to all other Moms in their times of need. To share of opinions of a fellow MOM’s new hairdo, right before gunning her down with her lack of care and concern for her children by seeing a man for lunch so soon after her divorce…especially when that man may or may not be gay…..or a hairdresser….or a hairdresser’s assistant. I’m sure Kate would be PROUD to read this and feel the comraderie of the blog….yelling from the mountaintop “These women are MOM’s…strong and proud….JUST LIKE ME!” Right before the bloggers herE responded from their mountaintops yelling “YOU ARE NOTHING LIKE US….DON’T LUMP US IN WITH YOU!!!”

I’m sorry. But that horrible “do” doesn’t hide the fact that she is a scary, nasty, icky woman. Where in the heck are the poor 8 kids? And to the poor guy walking along side her carrying the Sally Beauty Supply bag (what, is he gonna do her hair for her????) – boy, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!!!

I showed the picture of Kate with her new ‘do in this month’s People to my husband, and he couldn’t even identify her. She looks amazing in the People article. I have no comment as to what her hair or male lunch buddy have to do with her parenting – frankly I’m a little tired of hearing about her – but I do think that hair is gorgeous, practical or not.

I think shorter hair is much more flattering to her face. She just kind of looks like someone stuck a wig on her head. She might have looked nice with long hair in the past, but it just doesn’t look quite right anymore.

The guy beside her in the ugly jacket is a hairdresser. Much of this is for whatever new show she thinks she’s going be on – hence the reason for the ugly and unflattering “Oliver Twist” hats she’s been wearing in the past weeks with the hairs sticking out underneath – she wasn’t allowed to show that fake hair until the People article.

Very seldom do you see pictures of Kate without her children, so I don’t know if I’m being doofy, but I think she probably is a very good Mom..Every Mom needs a break once in a while..As for her “dating” so soon after the divorce, haven’t they been separated for about a year or so?

Theresa I realize I am neither a degreed nor Certfied accountant. However I am one by default of what I do to earn a living daily. I say this because I know that numbers and what they mean are things accountants would have some knowledge base — just like teachers who step in from time to time (hehehe MJG!!!! I couldn’t resist either).

Your blog count on steriods was 64 as of this post. Your count on this blog topic is 36 as of my logging in to post. Additionally many of the bloggers that posted on steriods are now on this topic. With the Johnny Late to Blog on steroids blogging here more than the last topic.

Further the same thing happened yesterday with each subsequent topic. In addition to this MOST of the blog responses are banter (yesterday and today) among the bloggers and not direct to topic.

In math we call these factors. In Business Legalease we call them facts.

You can blog on any topic you want, but please don’t say it is the response count that makes it right. The count doesn’t substantiate it at this point.

PS. You going to ban me now?

I think Kate’s hair LOOKS like it was put over her old hair….I don’t like the style at all…and it baffles me as to how she continues to proclaim herself as SOOOO devoted to her kids but yet is still out promoting herself…$7000 is a lot of money and to spend that on hair when she claimed not long ago to have no money to pay her bills is outrageous…I agree with the post above….cease reporting on this wanna be..

Hey FCM — there’s a whole other set of numbers that has nothing to do with comments. They’re called page views and aren’t reflected in the comment numbers. I’m watching those also besides the comments to help me gauge interest in topics.

My point in mentioning that is people complain about not wanting to know about Kate but then the numbers spike whenever she’s the topic —

I really did post it just because I thought it was interesting to see her new hair do and I wondered about the guy. I am terrible about watching gossip shows, reading gossip mags and religiously checking TMZ — I absolutely enjoy this kind of Kate fodder.

P.S. I haven’t banned anyone in a long time — it takes a lot to get thrown off this blog.

@Sara Thomas -YES -I would say that I don’t like her hair plus MANY more things to the attention-grubbing moron known at Kate Gosselin! What a waste of space. Her hair extensions look ridiculous! I must say, I’ve only seen the show once and am not a fan of any of these people, but from what I’ve seen and heard (because it’s impossible not to unless you’re living under a rock), she’s not the type of person I would want to be around.

Whoever the dude is -he’s gay. If he’s not, someone needs to find out what drugs he’s taking to make him think he should EVER wear a fur-trimmed anything! And I’m sure many, many gay men would also never make such a horrific fashion choice, so I’m not slamming you!
