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?

@ theresa….I wondered if the hits on the blog filtered into what the success outcome was. I am sure there are many who visit and read but never post. Interesting!

@ tiger….can you say CATTY…this is not to be confused with catlady but a behavior that begins early in women. I observed it when I was teaching 2nd grade forever ago and am sure it starts in preschool girls now. My daughter bemoans it in high school all the time.

If you have a daughter, you had better GET READY!

Last week, my daughter said:”I like my friends but I am ready for some new ones…” College is just around the corner for her! New friends and new struggles!

That is the neat thing about what I do, I meet new folks all the time and if anyone becomes extremely difficult…I can move on to someone else. Probably less than 5 out of 500 but it does happen!

I do regret the fact that I may meet someone really sweet in say Texas and rarely see them again.
I have really enjoyed the blessing of meeting folks all over the country and seeing what their lives are like!

MJG — I usually write about what interests me but the numbers help me know historically what has interested you guys. We get a lot of traffic off of Google — the blog is fairly well ranked in Google’s eyes and often ends up at the top of a google search for certain topics (say like Kate’s hair) so we have lots of visitors who read us but don’t ever comment. Lots of things to factor in when assessing if a topic or blog is successful — community involvement, comments, page views are all part of that assessment.

ANd you guys thought I was just throwing up topics in between changing diapers!

Theresa..you’re right about this site getting lots of google attention….when I googled “moms behaving badly” and “moms gone wild” and “moms who love to criticize other moms” and “when moms attack moms” ….they all got results to this site! ;-)

Dude is clearly gay and Kate used up her 15 minutes a long time ago. Why do we care about her?

@ Theresa I meant to put a wink after the PS. I didn’t *think* you would boot someone just for disagreeing or presenting something. With almost 4 years of discussing stuff with you I would hope that a simple I see it like this would be ok. I certainly take no offense to your rebuttal. Your right I didn’t think about the “hits” to the site of non posters. Although hits or not, some things (and in my and catlady’s opinion Kate is one) should not be posted because it is a self fulfilling thing–if you were to google Kate and get nada then people would stop paying Kate attention. I still think she is a media ^#!%& and probably would tell her that too.

As to the contention most of the people who were pointing fingers seemed to forget that 3 were pointed back at them. For the most part they seem to have wondered off. (None of the regulars fall into this category).

@ MJG meeting people — although I do it mostly by phone — is a good thing. People are interesting. Some days I speak to UK, AK, MA, HI, and LA all in the same day. Other times I speak to only people in Atlanta. You never know. I had a job where I was able to travel before the girls were born. It was interesting then too. Believe it or not if I ever have a day to do a 2 hour lunch I would consider asking you if you want to meet. Just because some of your habits drive me nuts (and I am sure mine do you) and we do not agree on some things doesn’t mean I find you without value. Quite the contrary. You remind me in some ways of my mother (she drives me nuts too) and in other ways like some of my friends. I do agree that associating with other parents at different parts of the journey (on the sidewalk of course) is important.

@ Julia you ok you got quiet?

@ Tiger — Women in a room are always like this! What do you think we are doing the bathroom in pairs?! Oh and we are glad your a guy too.

I think Kate looks really good. I like her hair and I think she is a respectful person. Shame on all those who have such horrible things to say about someone that don’t know her. I really wonder what you are like.

You really think she’s dating this guy who shops at Sally Beauty Supply? I’m going to say they’re friends. He uses a bit too much hair product for her. Also, a lot of moms have long hair. Look at Michelle Duggar, her hair is much longer than Kate’s and Michelle seems to do a fine job of taming her hair (especially this past season of their show).

Kate you look great! Best of luck!

Michelle seems to keep the sides pulled back in a clip or pony tail a lot — she lets the back hang long and has the bangs. She always looks clean and neat but I don’t think she’s spending tremendous time on her hair. I think Kate’s style looks like there’s curling and blowing out and teasing and hair products from Sally Beauty supply involved.

And in America people are starving. She could do herself and her family wonders through charitable works. In this economy any money spent as capriciously as this money was spent is selfish and fame seeking. Kate, for once look at others besides youself!

Gee people don’t hate. Kate was verbally abusive to Jon but she wasn’t the one we read about going out to bars, I liked them as a couple but if he were mine I’d kick him to the curb. He better do something quick so he can afford to support all those kids. Do you all think she pays for all this stuff? Give me a break, celebrities get more free stuff than they need, they didn’t pay for all the trips and parties they had, how could they afford that when neither one of them worked? So what if she finds a boyfriend, she’s very attractive and any guy that watched the show knows what she’s all about so they have been forewarned, I wouldn’t want her job for any amount of money, her kids are darling, but they’re still kids! If we leave her alone she might go away.

i think the new style is flattering on girls younger than kate. kate has a rather hard face, with deep wrinkle lines between her eyebrows and around her mouth. unlike her new hair style, kate is not the romantic type. she looks better in something more severe and short~to match her personality. as for the new man; im sure her list of suitors is small. with how she treated jon on the show, i doubt that many men could fall in love with her. shes doomed.

I just don’t like her new hair at all. She has strong facial features, a bit like Sandra Bullock, and long hair just isn’t flattering to her at all. It’s removed her look of individuality and freshness. As to who she’s dating – as she’s now divorced, that’s her business!

And what’s the big deal with moms and long hair? Where is it written that moms have to have short hair?


January 13th, 2010

We’re not done with Kate yet. She’s trying – very hard – to be on the next season of Dancing with the Stars. They pay everyone (even the last place finisher) over $100,000.

Trying to get another 15 minutes and more cash.

Jane if she does get on DWTS and she gets voted off early on do you think she will finally take the hint?

I don’t like Kate’s new longer style at all but probably because I’ve grown accustomed to seeing her with the short, choppy styles. But I have often wondered why new moms chop their hair off. I think short styles often require much more time & prep work than longer hair. Kate’s curls could be ‘artificial’ too; if it is a weave then it could be curled already and not require curling everyday which may actually make her prep time less than before. My hair is long and straight and only requires washing 2-3 days per week and blow drying on days it’s cold which equates to a whopping 15 minutes. Other days, it’s a quick brush and I can either leave it down, clip it up or put it in a ponytail in about 2 mins.

Oh and the guy- “ick” but then again it’s not like John was a real winner either.

I LIKE KATE! This guy is not a date…..look at the bag he is carrying-from a beuaty supply shop! He probably helped with her hair.

Thank you TechMom for saying that not all long hair requires more time..Mine now is to my shoulder blades and all I have to do is blow dry a little, put a small amount of “product” in it and go..Doesn’t require any more work the rest of the day..


January 13th, 2010

Couldn’t care less about her, the hair or the guy! LOL! Sometimes I think the goal of the long hair is not the day-to-day style but for the special times (going out, public appearances, etc.) Somehow, I doubt she keeps it though. With the activity required of all the kids, if she doesn’t keep it pulled back, it will constantly be in the way! :o)

Tiger…eating their young is a frequent saying in the field of nursing! Nurses are BRUTAL to the newbies…not sure why though! It is getting better than it used to be when I got out of school though! Oh…and you definitely bring a new perspective to our blog!

The guy is not a date. It is a hairstylist. It looks like a business meeting.

Although I’m not a fan of Kate, I like the new hair! I do agree that spending money to get the extensions is frivolous, but life changes sometimes get accompanied by more changes. If she’s got the money to burn on extensions, then that’s her business. I just don’t want to hear her complain that she’s got no money to feed her kids! As for the dude, who cares? You do have to admit though, it would be nice to have a guy carry your bag from SALLY BEAUTY SUPPLY. I can’t even get my husband to hold my purse if I have to go to the bathroom while we’re out! LoL

I think TLC gave her the new long hairdo so that when they give Kate a lobotomy, personality and charisma transplants, it will hide the scar. Kate is a skank and the world’s worst mother. President Obama is trying to give women grants to go back to school to train for a profession. Perhaps Kate should look into one.

Kate looks so ridiculous with those hair extensions, I’m almost embarrassed for her. It’s amazing how quickly and thoroughly Jon and Kate have managed to turn those poor little kids’ worlds upside down. Self-absorbed jerks.


January 14th, 2010

She’s probably just one of the females who trades their hubby in every 10 years or so, each time seeing themselves as unblemished and very desirable, no matter how many times they’ve been married or how many kids they already have.

@dessertgirl: Calling her the worlds worst mother is quite an accusation. Her kids are happy, healthy, smart, loving and engaging children. Kids dont turn out that way if they’re with the “worst parents.” If you want to see what the effects of living in a family with the worst parent is like, look at the children killed by their parents, the children beaten by their parents, the children neglected by their parents, etc. She is a far cry from being that kind of a mother. Even if she’s as fame hungry and egotistical as everyone claims she is, she is still better than THOUSANDS of parents in the US alone. For instance, there is a case of a mother who neglected her daughter to the point where no one knew the daughter existed until she was 7. And at that point she could not walk, she was not potty trained, she could not speak, and she has what is referred to as social autism. I really dont think that anything Kate has done is anything close to that caliber. So before you go overly generalizing, why dont you really think about what you’re saying. You just make yourself look like an idiot if you go around acting like you currently are.

And just for clarification reasons, if Kate really was as bad as everyone makes her out to be, the courts would not have allowed her primary custody.

And as far as where were the kids, probably with Jon. He does still get to see his kids and she doesnt have to be there.

yes she got extensions- it was in last week’s People…So What! At least she’s not trashing around like that asian flea bag ex husband. How dare you people critize her so much, you have no idea what she’s going through being in the public eye because of someone elses stupid decisions. Her marraige falling apart on the cover of tabloids & on the TV, that’s not what she asked for and none of this started until Jon F-ed up! She also let him spend Christmas Eve & all day Christmas at the house with the kids so he didn’t have to miss them waking up Christmas morning. A selfless move if you ask me. She’s doing the best she can, is a good mom & looks great!

She looks a hot MESS along with her whateve he is. She won’t get a real man that will put her in her place. Always some wimpy looking guy she can run over and talk down to, just like she did Jon. I’m glad he left her..I feel for what the children are going thru. I could care less about her and WHY is she still in the news?


February 4th, 2010

Ok, to who ever wrote this. GROW UP. Just cause she has long hair doesn’t make her a bad mom. And just cause your not talented enough to do it, doesn’t mean she can’t. You are so stupid, I swear that is the most rediculous thing I have ever heard. Long hair makes you a bad mom???? I think not. I have long hair…… and I care for a set of triplets, two 8 year olds and 2 newborns…. So just cause you can’t do something, doesn’t mean someone else can’t. It is rude to attack her like that just for getting her hair done. And why the hell is that any of your buissness??? Have you ever got your hair done??? gone from short to long or long to short???? And if you did, I guess that makes you a bad mom too.

As to her having lunch with someone…. get over it. They are most likely just friends. And if they aren’t, Good for her. She is alloud to date, that doesn’t make her a bad mom. Everyone knows Jon dates…. and that is his buissness as well….. NOT YOURS. Get over yourself. Or better yet get a life of your own and stop gossiping about other people. It just makes you seem low.

It is always easy to give in and conform to the gossip. So why dont you try and grow up and let these people live there lives in private. No one deserves this crap.

Kate needs long term professional counseling. Her first priority should be to her childern, to love and to guide them, not exploit. Who cares HOW many kids she has if she cannot take care of them by BEING there. Now she is invading a favorite show, Dancing With The Stars. She IS no STAR. The only good thing about her being on tv is that you can TURN HER OFF !!


March 12th, 2010
3:40 pm

you should just go and hide in a room and stay with your kids. Her hair, who cares about her hair, take care of the kids and be home with them. If you want to be on tv just go and look at the show and see how you treated Jon.

Well it’s not so bad and I don’t think that it is a bad ski jacket for the lunch date. Well, by the looks of it, I wouldn’t really see it as two folks dating but rather just two friends having lunch. I don’t see or feel anything romantic going on between the two.

Yea she needs to spend more time away from her kids. When are they going to call the nanny MOM. Bottom line she can’t handle her kids but as long as she controlls everything again, and Jon doesn’t get the kids and the house. Make her go back to work and give the kids back to Jon since she is never with the kids anyways…she was so mean to Jon just go back and watch her snap her fingers at him in the store and yell at him. Jon deserves better..way to go Jon

Jods….I forgot about that $7000 for a hair style. I would never spend that kind of money on myself. My kids always come first. Then the bills. Your right she said she can’t pay the bills well you have the nanies so you can go back to work. OH wait there is that $33,000 that Jon pays in child support that you can’t live without. Go get a face lift because you are not the same Kate that we saw when the show first started.
