Jon Gosselin Now Has Custody of Kids Hannah and Collin — And Kate Must Be Furious

image

Keeping up with Jon and Kate Gosselin and their eight kids was never easy — but with the end of their popular reality show and their marriage, it’s harder than ever.

Luckily, both parents share updates with fans regularly on social media, especially when it comes to the custody of their twins, Mady and Cara, and their sextuplets, Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel, and Leah. More recently it was revealed that Jon was awarded custody of his 14-year-old son, Collin, who has been in an out-of-state educational program since 2016. 

This news comes as quite a surprise to Kate Plus 8 fans, seeing as Jon’s twin girls, Mady and Cara, recently revealed they have no communication with their father. Nevertheless, the father-son duo looked happier than ever on a recent trip during the holiday weekend, along with older sister Hannah and Jon’s new girlfriend Coleen Conrad, and her two kids, Jordan and Jesse.

Wait, why does Hannah live with Jon and not Kate? 

While Hannah’s custody agreement has never been public, the 14-year-old has been living with her dad full-time since this past summer. “Hannah lives full time with Jon and they are always out and about together in his hometown of Reading, PA,” Hollywood Life reported. “The details of his custody arrangement with Kate are top secret though. No one but Kate and Jon and their lawyers know the specifics.” 

It is rumored that Kate does not like this living arrangement at all. “Kate is trying to be supportive of the situation, but the truth is, she hates that Hannah chose Jon over her,” a source told Life & Style. “The problem is that the kids are getting older and they’re starting to ask questions. Some are still Team Mom, but Team Dad is growing. It’s a very divided household.” 

image

The insider also explained there is still a lot of bad blood between the former couple, who have been divorced since 2009. “It’s never going to end,” the source added. “Even now, after all these years, Jon’s still trying to show the world that Kate’s the furthest thing from a great mom.” 

What is wrong with Collin? 

This change of scenery might be good for Collin, who has struggled with “special needs,” according to his mom. In 2010, he was expelled from school for his behavior, and more recently, Kate opened up about his diagnosis. “[There’s] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things,” she told People magazine. “This has been a struggle we’ve had for a very long time, and it’s one I’ve dealt with on my own. I’ve felt very alone in this. By the same token, it’s not something that has only impacted me or him … our entire family has been impacted.” 

image

However, not even Jon knew about the location of his son’s new out-of-state school before he was granted custody. “I have an idea of where he is, but I don’t know exactly where he is… I mean, I ask but she [Kate] doesn’t tell me,” he said at the time. “She doesn’t answer any of my texts.” A few months ago, Jon visited Collin at his school with Hannah on their birthday, writing, “Glad I could celebrate my son Collin’s 14th birthday with him and his sister.” 

Now, Collin is back home with his family — and hopefully Jon and Kate can put aside their differences to do what is best for all eight of their kids.

'The Little Couple's Nanny Kate Made the Move to Florida With the Klein Family!

image

If you’re a fan of the TLC series The Little Couple, you know nanny Kate is an honorary member of the Klein family. The brunette beauty, who is often spotted in the background of each episode, is so close to the family of four (who all have skeletal dysplasia), she even moved to Florida to join Bill, Jen, Will, and Zoey. 

“We are so lucky that Kate and Trey were able to join us in moving to sunny Florida,” Jen captioned a photo of Kate on Instagram. Just in case you forgot, Bill and Jen decided to move the family from Houston to St. Petersburg after Jen, who is a doctor, was offered an amazing job opportunity at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in the Sunshine State. And Kate was there to help with the move. 

As expected, viewers were beyond thrilled to discover Kate would not be staying behind in Texas, and shared their excitement on social media. “I love that Kate is still a part of your life, and even made the move to FL! Speaks volumes about the love you all have for each other,” one fan wrote. Another added, “That is absolutely amazing. Through all the changes, one of the most important people in your life is able to stay with you. You are all so lucky to have one another.” 

image

Kate recently tied the knot with her husband Trey. As expected, Will and Zoey were in her wedding, with Zoey getting the title of flower girl. Jen shared a photo of her daughter on the big day, writing, “Most beautiful flower girl!” Kate was also by Jen’s side as she battled stage 3 choriocarcinoma, a rare form of uterine cancer, in 2013. 

However, just because Bill and Jen have Kate as a nanny, doesn’t mean they are hands-off parents. “They’re getting to an interesting age and finding their real passions,” Bill recently told People magazine of his kids. “They’re really into artwork right now, their verbal skills continue to surprise me, and they’re doing so well in school. It’s fun to watch them grow. After everything we’ve been through, it’s a very exciting time.” 

image

So, what’s the day in the life like for Kate? In a blog post, Jen detailed her nanny’s job, writing, “Typically during the weekdays Kate, our nanny, comes at 10 a.m. and she stays until 6 p.m. She’ll send me pictures throughout the day of what Will’s doing, which is really nice to keep tabs on him. It’s also just a nice surprise when she sends me cute pictures of him while I’m working.”

She continued, “By 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. I come home, greet Will and check up with our nanny about anything I need to know from the day.” From there, Bill and Jen take over, making dinner together, coordinating bath time, and putting the kids to sleep. 

Kate really is part of the family! Tune in to watch The Little Couple Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on TLC.

Jon and Kate Gosselin's Twins Mady and Cara Are Officially 18!

image

When Jon and Kate Gosselin welcomed sextuplets in 2004, they made headlines — and it wasn’t long before TLC offered the family a reality show. However, before Jon and Kate welcomed six babies at one time, they were the proud parents of twin girls, Madelyn (Mady) and Cara. 

During their 11 seasons on Jon and Kate Plus 8, Mady and Cara were the perfect big sisters to their younger siblings,  Aaden, Alexis, Leah, Collin, Hannah, and Joel (now 14 years old). Fast forward to 2018, and it’s hard to believe that the girls are celebrating their 18th birthday. 

“HAPPY 18th Birthday, Cara and Madelyn! There are no words to describe how proud I am of you both. Despite the many turbulent times you’ve had to deal with so far in life, you have emerged as wise, level-headed, reasonable, forgiving, loving, kind and absolutely brilliant ADULTS,” Kate captioned an emotional post on Instagram. “I can say that I’ve poured endless love into you and fought tooth and nail for the best for you, but I cannot possibly take credit for the truly wonderful humans (adult humans!) you have become! You will thrive in life, I am certain, and I will still be with you every step of the way going forward, continuing to guide you and love you. I love you both so very very much and I wish peace, happiness and the great successes I know are coming your way!” 

image

Just like most teenage girls, Mady and Cara had their rebellious stage. Like that one time during an interview on The Today Show when they refused to respond to any questions. When asked by the host Savannah Guthrie if they were doing OK, they just sat their silently, prompting Kate to explain. “They get really frustrated that people assume certain things in our house and they always say, ‘But that’s not how it is, mommy. Why do they say that about us?”http://undefined/” Kate said at the time. “They’re just really regular, every day, awesome teenagers.”

Since then, they have changed a lot. Unfortunately, they are still practicing the silent treatment when it comes to their estranged father, who they no longer talk to. “He makes it seem like we’re being kept from him, which is insane,” Mady told People magazine. “He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen.”

image

She continued, “He doesn’t even know us. How can he dare to talk about us?” Ouch. However, that did not stop Jon from wishing his oldest daughters a happy birthday on social media… In Jon’s defense, he blames Kate for the estrangement.  

“I see Mady,” he explained to Entertainment Tonight. “Like, when I drop the kids off, Mady comes down and I talk to her like, ‘Hey, how’s school?’ but they haven’t been to my house, or stayed at one of my houses, in three years. Regardless of what Mady and Cara said about me, I know they love me,” he adds. “I know my mom’s talked to them, so I know maybe there will be a relationship down the road, you know, when they’re adults and they figure out the truth.”

image

So, what’s next for Mady and Cara now that they are officially adults? Fans can watch out for the girls on their mom’s upcoming reality show, Kate Plus Date. “Now that they’re older and talking about dating and how they’re all gonna get married someday … it became apparent: they want someone for me. They want me to have somebody in my life,” Kate said of Mady and Cara’s involvement in the show. 

Custody drama aside, with graduation just around the corner, Mady and Cara are busy preparing to go away for college — and Kate is already dreading the emotional moment. “My heart hurts because you’re almost adults and will soon leave for college, yet it smiles because I am seeing who you’ve become: brilliant, beautiful, kind, caring, logical, responsible, empathetic, honest, amazing individuals,” she wrote earlier this year. Someone get Kate a tissue ASAP!

Former 'Life Below Zero' Star Kate Rorke Is Not in Alaska, but She's Living Her Best Life

image

If you love Alaskan Bush People, then you need to watch Life Below Zero — if you don’t already. The National Geographic series also takes viewers to the most remote regions of Alaska to see how people survive in the frozen tundra. 

However, while most of the show’s cast is returning for Season 11, Kate Rorke is not one of them. So, what happened to Andy Bassich’s wife Kate from Life Below Zero?

Well, fans met the blonde beauty when the show premiered in 2013. Back then, she was married to co-star Andy. Kate, who is not originally from Alaska, met Andy while on vacation and decided to move up north to be with him. The couple wed shortly after. 

image

Unfortunately, in 2015, Andy and Kate announced they were calling it quits. One year later, the divorce was finalized and Kate moved away — ending her time on the Nat Geo series. She later opened up about the split, claiming Andy was physically and mentally abusive. 

Since then, Kate has not returned to Alaska and Andy is living alone with his dogs. Despite her decision to leave reality television, Kate is seemingly doing better than ever. On her official Facebook page, the 61-year-old regularly interacts with her fans and shares many of her life updates from Newfoundland in Canada. 

And it looks like she is also enjoying warmer climes — recently returning from a vacation in the Caribbean. She recently shared a photo with her brother, writing, “Great to spend time with my amazing brother Tolson. We have not seen each other in about 16 years. Far too long.” 

image

Even though it has been three years since her last appearance on Life Below Zero, followers are still hoping she will return. But that doesn’t seem likely. 

“It’s good to be home,” Kate said in a video post. “The memories are good, the friends are good, and it’s nice to be around people who have known me since the beginning of time it seems as we get older… You guys, you all got me here and you saved my life in a way, so love to you. Over and out.” 

What is Andy up to on Life Below Zero

In a sneak preview for Season 11, it was revealed that Andy is still on his own in Alaska and has recently lost his beloved dog, Iceberg. 

image

“It’s sad to see him go. You get really attached to them and then they leave and it’s kind of a hard thing to live through,” he said on the show. “Last year, I retired him halfway through the year, but even with one eye, he was still a pretty good darn lead dog. You know, he had a great life with me, we traveled a lot of miles together, had a lot of great adventures and he was a pretty cool dog. I’m going to miss him. It’s sad to see him gone but it’s time to start training the new Iceberg.”  

Watch the season premiere of Life Below Zero on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 9 p.m. on the National Geographic.

Get Ready Because Kate Gosselin Is Returning to Your TV This Fall

image

No one can forget the seemingly picture-perfect TV couple Kate and Jon Gosselin. But, with their fall from reality TV heaven post-split, the famous mid-2000s TV mom and her eight kids have mostly been forgotten. Like, what does she even look like today? And does she still have her signature pixie haircut? 

Viewers fell in love with Jon and Kate Plus 8, with millions watching the former Pennsylvania couple raising their sextuplets and twins on national television. TLC struck gold when they bought the rights to the show, which allowed cameras to enter their home and follow Jon and Kate as they navigated raising eight children under one roof. 

Unfortunately, like many reality star couples, they called it quits and their very public divorce quickly turned nasty. However, fast forward a few years, and Kate is looking better than ever — and her signature pixie cut is long gone. Plus, she’s ready for her big return to the small screen. 

image

So, what does Kate Gosselin do for a living now?

After the initial series, Kate, 43, decided to do her own spinoff of the popular show, Kate Plus 8. With her show ending in July 2017, we’ve been wondering what this reality star mom has been up to. According to her Instagram, Kate decided to take a break from television and has been spending time with her family. However, her short stint off of TV won’t last long. Kate has a brand new show premiering this fall. 

image

Kate Plus Date will follow the single mom as she navigates the world of dating. Her return to reality television was prompted by her lack of companionship. In an interview with People magazine, she explained, “I started picturing myself sitting in a rocking chair, knitting, and words like ‘old maid’ and ‘spinster’ started to come to mind, and I realized that no, I don’t want that to be my fate.”  

As for what she’s looking for in a man, Kate revealed, “I do want someone with a set career, who is confident,” she added. “A grown-up with their own life, their own agenda, who knows who they are.” 

What happened to Kate Gosselin’s son Collin?

image

It may be shocking to realize just how long ago we were introduced to the Gosselin clan, but Kate’s oldest twins, Mady and Cara, 17, just entered their senior year of high school, and the sextuplets — Aaden, Alexis, Leah, Collin, Hannah, and Joel, 14, — are in eighth grade. The “proud mom,” posted an Instagram pic of her children going back to school, captioned, “Feels like school never ended… and they’re already back!

Collin was noticeably missing from the back-to-school picture because he does not live or attend school with his brothers and sisters. According to Kate, Collin is enrolled at a special needs program away from the family home.

“[He’s] in a program that is helping him learn the skills he needs to be the best him he can be,” she told People. “We miss him so much, so it’s been hard because there is a huge hole in our family without him here. But it comforts us to know he’s where he needs to be right now, and I can feel good about that.” 

Also not featured in the group pic is Hannah, who is now living full-time with her dad. 

What happened to Jon Gosselin?

Following their ugly TV breakup, things got worse for Jon, 41, as he has had to pay child support and legal fees for his continuous custody battle with Kate. As a part-time DJ and IT administrator in Pennsylvania, Jon has no contact with his kids, except for his daughter Hannah, who decided to permanently move in with him.

image

Aside from his drama with Kate, Jon has also found love again. He has been dating his girlfriend, Colleen Conrad, since 2014. The trio recently celebrated Father’s Day together in Atlantic City, with Hannah gushing about her dad. “Happy Fathers Day Dad I love you so much,” she wrote on Instagram. “[You’re] the best dad anyone could ever ask for I love our late night ice cream runs together, you’re the best.” 

As for his other children, Jon previously told Yahoo! that if his kids wish to see him, his door is open. “If the kids want to come, they come,” he explained in 2016. “I love them all, but I am going to focus on the ones that want to come. My hands are tied.”

How Kate Middleton Creates Awesome New Looks While Wearing the Same Clothes

The Duchess of Cambridge has repeatedly appeared in public wearing the same outfits, even though she can afford to change her dresses several times a day. Refined elegance within the limits of reasonable consumption is one of the reasons why Catherine deserved the love of British citizens. None of her outfits repeat the previous one exactly. In this, the Duchess continues the traditions laid down by her legendary mother-in-law, Princess Diana. At the end of the article, there is a bonus: the appearances of Lady Diana where she managed to present the same thing in such a way that it was almost impossible to notice the repetition.

Bright Side became interested in what tricks Kate Middleton uses to put wear the same thing over and over and always look different, and which of these techniques can be adopted.

1. The cream coat-dress

The Duchess wore this elegant coat-dress at least 4 times: at the christening of Princess Charlotte in 2015, at the parade in honor of the Queen’s official birthday in 2016, during an official visit to Belgium in 2017, and at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May 2018.

For each occasion, the Duchess chose different hats and different hairstyles. At the event in Belgium, on the lapel of her coat, you can see a brooch in the form of a red poppy, which serves as a symbol of the memory of victims of military and civilian armed conflicts. This accent also makes the image somewhat different.

2. The red dress

This spectacular scarlet dress Kate also wore repeatedly. The images of the Duchess are distinguished by different clutches and the fact that in one of them she wears a hat and a brooch, while in the other one she does not.

3. The emerald dress

One outfit — 2 completely different looks. Again, it’s all about the accessories — different belts, lack of jewelry on the left one, and earrings coupled with a pendant on the right. An important role is played by the hat which adds an interesting accent and complements the image on the left.

4. The lace dress

This stylish lace dress was worn by the Duchess during a celebratory event in 2012 and again, only 2 years later in 2014. An accent in the form of a belt around the waist and different hats and clutches is all it takes to create a completely new outfit.

5. The beige coat-dress

This elegant coat indicates the fact that Kate Middleton has been wearing some of her clothes since her girlhood. So, in the image above, Kate was photographed at the wedding of Laura Parker Bowles and Harry Lopez in 2006. This was before she became the wife of Prince William. Subsequently, Catherine appeared in public wearing this outfit in 2011 and was then seen in it again in 2016 — 10 years after the first appearance. Thanks to different hats, clutches and ornaments, the outfit looks different every time.

6. The evening gown

A beautiful evening gown is often considered to be something that’s only worn once. However, there are exceptions to any rule: sometimes, the Duchess can afford to wear the same evening dress several times, provided that it is supplemented with different ornaments. The photo on the left is from February 2014 and on the right — from December of the same year.

7. The green coat-dress

There are 2 more spectacular and very different looks of the Duchess of Cambridge wearing the same coat in honor of the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day in 2012 and 2013. The creation of a fundamentally different image in the second case was largely due to the addition of a black turtleneck, gloves, and tight black pantyhose.

8. The yellow coat

The duchess already wore this yellow dress-coat in 2012, and then chose it again for an official visit to Bhutan in 2016. In 2016, the outfit looks different because of the absence of a hat, a different hair style, a clutch and ornaments.

Bonus: Princess Diana’s appearances

Princess Diana also liked to wear the same outfits, and she often did it so masterfully that it took some time to notice that these are images of the same article of clothing. For example, Lady Di wore a bandage on her head with beautiful stones and she later turned it into a necklace/choker.

Same top part, but 2 different outfits. You really can’t tell without looking very closely.

How well can you combine clothes from your wardrobe?

People Are Using Kate Spade's Death To Start A Serious Conversation On Depression

It’s easy to take a cynical approach to consumerism. To the world of fashion and frivolous purchases. I do it all the time.

I get angry whenever someone values name brand stuff for the sake of it being name brand, and I also find it pretty disgusting when people seem to care more about appearing successful than actually doing something successful in their lives that’s fulfilling and meaningful to them.

The kind of person who, in the seminal Post Malone track off of his masterpiece, Beerbongs and Bentleys, are like this woman: “her bag Chanel/but she drive a durango”.

Spending money on Gucci belts when you’re borrowing gas money, leasing a new Lexus while you’re living with your parents and taking pictures of it on Instagram with “inspirational” comments means your priorities are in the wrong place and you’re kinda pathetic. But that doesn’t mean liking the finer things in life is wrong, because it’s not.

For many people, earning those finer things through hard work, or treating yourself to something to celebrate an honest-to-goodness milestone means the world to you. It’s why growing up I valued the videogames I got after busting my butt in school or saving up enough money from shoveling people’s driveways way more than the rich kids who just got the game on a Tuesday from their parents for simply existing.

One of the best parts about buying those finer things, is when you gift them to someone else. I love surprising my wife with gifts and seeing her face light up when I show them to her. One of her favorite designers was Kate Spade, who, unfortunately, recently committed suicide.

The news left a lot of people shocked and expressing their condolences to the influential designer’s family.

People are now using Spade’s suicide to spark a larger conversation about mental health.

Many are doing it by sharing photos and stories about what her designs meant to them.

For some, it was a symbol of success, of attaining personal goals and dreams.

For others, it was all about the gift of giving.

Some people showed off her more unconventional designs and how much it meant to them to buy a new bag.

Others shared some embarrassing stories about having a knock-off, and meeting Kate Spade herself.

For many, Spade’s products represented the first “actual” purse they ever purchased, and the great feelings associated with getting something they really, really wanted.

For many people, it helped them cope in difficult environments.

Others testified to the quality of Spade’s products. For a bag to last from the ’90s, that’s pretty darn impressive.

Her suicide is a reminder that depression can affect us all. But you can get help.

My condolences to Kate Spade’s family in this trying time.

David Spade's Tribute To Kate Spade Highlights A Misconception Many Have About Mental Health

When the news of Kate Spade’s suicide rang out over the internet, people were in shock.

The death of a public figure and beloved designer like Spade understandably affected many people, but it’s her immediate family who is bearing the brunt of the trauma from such a sudden loss.

Spade is survived by her 13-year-old daughter, and her husband of 24 years, Andy Spade.

Andy is the brother of actor/comedian David Spade, who spoke on the recent loss of his sister-in-law on Instagram and Twitter.

In his posts he remarked on how funny Kate was, sharing two candid photos of the designer. In both pictures she’s smiling. The moments are personal, beautiful.

“Fuzzy picture but i love it. Kate and I during Christmas family photos. We had so much fun that day. She was so sharp and quick on her feet. She could make me laugh so hard. I still cant believe it. Its a rough world out there people, try to hang on.” 

Coming from a comedian, being called funny is pretty much the ultimate compliment. 

Spade, in a separate Twitter post shared this nice photo of Spade supporting the actor at a book signing. He echoed his love of her sense of humor. The look on Kate’s face is a warm one.

Katy at my book signing. I love this pic of her. So pretty. I dont think everyone knew how fucking funny she was…  Its a rough world out there people. Try to hang on 

Kate Brosnahan met Andy Spade when they were both students at Arizona State University. Kate moved to New York City after graduating and Andy went to the city with her in 1988. He supported her career as a designer and in 1993 helped her launch a line of accessories. They weren’t married at the time, but they called their new business Kate Spade. It was a smash success.

Andy Spade, in an interview with NPR described his relationship with Kate as being close – that they two of them “grew up together” in a way, starting in their 20s and into their 50s. 

David Spade spoke a bit about his relationship with Andy and Kate back in 2015 on an episode of The Howard Stern Show.

“Growing up, I was always at least getting attention because he was cool. We were skateboarding together, but everyone liked him. He was always way ahead of the game. And then there was a window when I got on SNL where I was actually doing a little better and getter cooler for about a year and a half. Then they started Kate Spade and they blew by me on a rocket ship.”

“I love having family around. Love [that] Andy’s around. He’s a smart f*cking guy. He knows his sh*t. And Katy’s really, really smart and good — and she’s hilarious.”

Kate Spade’s family released an official statement to the New York Times following her death, requesting that they be allowed to grieve in private.

“We are all devastated by today’s tragedy. We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly. We would ask that our privacy be respected as we grieve during this very difficult time.”  

Her impact on the world of fashion is undeniable.

She will most certainly be missed.

If you or anyone you know is suffering from depression and needs help, please, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
