Jon & Kate Gosselin: Pinata Party Parents

Jon & Kate Gosselin: Pinata Party Parents

Jon & Kate Plus 8 parents Jon and Kate Gosselin put on a united front and throw a fifth birthday party for sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel at The Blue Falls Grove Water Park on Sunday (May 17) in Reading, Penn.

SPOILER ALERT!!! Per usual, drama ensued as TLC recorded the party for their hit reality TV show. Cara, one of the twins, had a breakdown and Kate got frustrated. Hannah shoved Collin in the magic castle inflatable bouncer. And Kate got straight down to business as she organized the pinata-swinging madness.

FYI: Bodyguard Steve Neild was in attendance. Kate and the kids picked up the pinatas at Party City on Saturday. First pictures of the party surfaced earlier today.

The new season of Jon and Kate Plus 8 premieres Monday, May 25.

    Who cares? They probably had to hire extra kids to act like friends.

  • not a fan

    Looks like more TV, camera, bodyguards then actually kids or friends of the children.

    The children look so unhappy, on what should be a happy time. So, so sad.

  • mylifeisafantasy

    Hands up, those people who cringed at seeing Kate with her ever present, exasperated, OCD face. Thank god for her and thank god for me that I am not married to that! I hate to think what I might do.

  • teresa

    Great ! a close up of Cara (for a change) screaming and crying like a big baby. Wow everyone look at that photo and see how those cameras are in her face as she has yet another meltdown on TV for all her friends and schoolmates to see. Cha Ching that is worth another $75,000 in Kate’s Piggy Bank. Gotta pay for tanning.

  • Sonia

    Does the author of this article realize that Kara is actually spelt Cara? And sextuplets implies SIX. you gave eight names, there are eight children including twins Mady and Cara who are 3 years older than the sextuplets.

    ……going out on a limb here but I foresee the day when Alexis out of all the kids will one day smack her down, swift and hard. Just hope it is done verbally and not physically.

  • mylifeisafantasy

    She’s ‘jumped the shark’, she’s become a caricature, and pretty soon she’ll be a late show ‘punch line’.

  • argoseye1

    Cara is one of the most annoying and spoiled children i have ever seen. she is always having freak attacks over nothing and her parents dont seem to care. the other twin doesnt seem so bad but Cara is horrible.

  • wweeeeeeeee

    these kids are all brats.

  • http://tvsnark.wordpress.com TVsnarkie

    How sweet. Kate, her estranged husband and her alleged lover all there to celebrate fake birthdays with paid party guests and cameras rolling.

    What a charmed life.

  • bella

    I am sorry. I have never watched the show, and I am so tired of hearing about these people. But from what I have seen in interviews. It seems like she is a bit of a diva and is everywhere talking about her hair. Can’t people live in peace without cameras and attention. These kids sound a little spoiled, and out of control. I understand there is 8 of them, and they are cute and all, but still.

  • 90210fan

    they will hang in there and stay together

  • jackie

    i bet they did this for press for their new season, right?

  • Ava

    MAX’S MOONWALK is getting alot of free publicity today, lol. Hey Kate go home and scrub that dead squirrel off your head and then go get some parenting/marriage counseling. YOU SUCK AS A MOM!!!

  • snwday

    i cant stand this family

  • dElORRIS

    Sonia,

    What? He gives only six names in the opening paragraph where he says there’s a fifth birthday party for the sextuplets.

  • protectthe8exploitedfaces

    I’m so glad these pics are up. Everyone can now see how invasive these cameras are to these kids! Kate is in all her glory and the kids are miserable!

    Kids DESERVE privacy!!!! This isn’t the “Kate I$ Gr8″ Show!

    Does anyone spy a Kreider, Carson or Gosselin (other than the kids and Jon) in that pic? Where’s nana Joan, Nana Beverly, Nana Janet and the slew of family members that were at the tups 3rd bday? THEY HAVE BEEN CUT OUT.

    im actually surprised that jon was even around

  • dElORRIS

    Hey Argo,

    You got the twins mixed up. The “bad” one is Mady. Cara is the “good” one. But I know, they do look a lot alike, but they’re fraternal.

  • tara

    i dont believe the cheating rumors. its all pub.

  • diana

    happy birthdayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  • vicki

    Explain why it’s such a big deal that Kate’s seen with the bodyguard. Even if it WERE true that they have a “fling” going on…is it not normal to be seen EVERYWHERE with a man guarding you? Chew on that one, peeps.

    its hard to raise one child, imagine 8. they do a good job.

  • stevie

    How come there isn’t any actual pictures of the tups except for THE BRAT HANNAH being, well, Hannah? Oh that’s right, this is the Kate Gosselin Show, silly me, I forgot. It’s all about HER not her kids.

  • just me

    So Cara had a meltdown? So what? She ALWAYS does-nothing new. One of the little ones pushed another and this is news why? All kids do this. I love these kids and they are just doing normal kid things. I think everyone just looks for things to hate about this family. I really love them all. Yes, even Kate. And I even like her hair! I hope they work things out and the press quits making up stories about all of them. And her brother and Aunt Jodie are disgusting! They need to shut up and stay out of the rag mags!!

  • kathy

    @argoseye1:
    Maddy is the one who usually has the meltdown. Cara is the mellow one, so it was a surprise to see her having a meltdown. I don’t blame her though with all that is going on in their life. I am really sad that they allowed fame to ruin the marriage. The reason people liked the show is because they were normal young struggling parents trying to do the best for their kids. I think most of us who watch are really disappointed of where the show is going now. Why not just give it up Jon and Kate, save your marriage and give your kids a normal life for a change.

  • just me

    Actually you are right. It was Mady not Cara who had (and always has) a meltdown.

  • anon

    I think it is lame that the kids needed their bodyguard their for the party. Obviously the parents are money hungry, but I don’t know how TLC, which produces good, quality programming, could let the show escalate to this level. It is greed on both sides. How come the family on Little People, Big World don’t have parties with a bodyguard? This show is pathetic and it will be interesting to see how Kate tries to keep the family in the limelight once the show is cancelled.

    Cara is not the one given to tantrums – that would be Maddy. If Cara had a meltdown, quite a lot must have happened first. She is much more like Jon than like Kate.

  • shann

    argoseye1;
    i believe you are referring to Mady. She always has the meltdowns,not Cara.

  • you want make this an issue?

    is the FYI really necessary Jared?

  • Lisa

    Courtney, curious, since you said you were there at the party, did the kids that were invited have to bring 6 gifts each or just one group gift? I wonder if Kate will reciprocate and bring her kids to your (and the other parents that came) party when that time rolls around?

  • kiddo

    I think they knew Jodi was selling the story and are getting as much publicity as LPBW did when Matt got the dwi,( later tossed for what the judge called test results of a c- on an exam (77% accurate) and on a dward.lol)

    I think people like Jodi are societies worst, most vicious and cowardly. Passive pushy is what she is.

    Jodi the victim, who was only selling her story for the good of the kids. I believe that like i believe either side of government.

    Face it they are all chumps but its fun to watch. Come on folks, Amazing race, Hells Kitchen are over, others ending. This is fun.

    Stop pissing about those roddy little brats. They can hang with brad and angies brewd or madonna’s.

  • Julie

    Here’s the new lowdown: Jodi’s husband is in construction and since that industry is so bad right now, they need money. That is why they sold their story to the trashy tabloids. I always thought she was a hypocrite, but making money off the kids like that now just proves it. Yeah, it was OK to do the show as long as SHE was on it. Now, she thinks the show hurts the kids.

    Gee, Jodi, when they were filming the show in your house, you never seemed to have a problem. I guess once the free trips to Oprah stopped, so did your love of the Gosselin children!

  • mylifeisafantasy

    Some facts for you all from a loyal fan of the show who is finally fed-up with Kate
    Cara is a little insecure but is a future Jock
    Maddy is a little Diva in training but is famous for her unattractive side getting the better of her.
    Lea is the smallest but is the most competitive.
    Aiden is a dope.
    Joel is a future fashion designer.
    Colin is a rock.
    Alexis is the wild child and stands apart from the rest of the pack (if they are all devout Christians she will be the black sheep lesbian kick-ass, punk rocker)
    Hanna is ironically the most vain of the bunch (refuses to let her hair get cut and is a little fashionista) because she is the least attractive of the kids.
    Kate is borderline OCD, a bicth but has absolute control of this large family.
    Jon is a loving father who’s Asian ancestry is proudly claimed by his children. He is no match however for Kate’s emotional and psychological manipulations. He isn’t passive but he does leak passive aggression. All told the children are lucky to be born in the family they are in. However they could use some outside intervention or just plain family counseling. I love the girls more than the rest of the family, or at least Alexis, Lea, and Hanna. But lately the show seems to be more about the adults which means having to witness Kate berate and demean Jon way too much. Not interested in that.

  • Anon

    My concern is for the boys, who Kate clearly DISFAVORS.

  • boycott tlc

    That park might as well have been a Roman coliseum today. Kate may be a D actress wannabe, but her kids’ emotional upsets should not be for public entertainment.

    Boycott this exploitative show and its network.

  • myrealname

    UGGGG… I can’t even come here without seeing her exploiting her kids. I am so sick of TLC.

  • goldberry

    Thank you, for exposing Take, I mean Kate for the sham that she is. Giving the kids a party that is “for the cameras” is not in the best interest of her kids. Also I now see, thanks to your photos how intrusive the film crew really is, I never realized that when I saw the show. This woman is selling her kids to finance a luxurious lifestyle. She should be ashamed of herself, instead she is peddling her “advice” to all the poor and unsuspecting people who worship her and buy her exploitative books.

  • kiddo

    I bet the producers are high fiving and doing the hula dressed in drag. Prev we would have to endure 700 commercials of them. Now with all of this publicity-nada they are off the hook.

    So for all the fans who wont go back, yeah you will. For all who have never seen it, you will look, who cares it’s America, do it. I find a lot of humor in it. Lazy man gets degraded and has a blank look on his face. I sometimes want to ask where his knitting bag or washboard is.

    She didnt turn him into a wuss bag, he was one. Watch the Christmas video when he proposed (the camera was rolling then too.). She being who she is, needs a yes man wuss bag. She might throw him under the bus. I’m no Hillary the headlines can read. lol But as long as he is willing to be told what to do at the amount of 75 base salary, I think we will see them for a while.

    There are a heck of a lot of rotten children out there. We just get to watch them. I laugh. Its entertainment. I know this because i pay the cable bill and it is not a public channel. I choose to watch it, who cares.

    Tonight in this great country i get to read many differing opinions.

  • Donna

    @mylifeisafantasy:
    Hahah that’s so true what you said about the kids! hahaha esp the hannah one LOL
    I can see Leah being the really cute bookworm and Alexis being the really hot girl who challenges the boys. “You wanna see me touch an aldegator? I’ll touch the aldegator! Beat that boys!”. Hannah will be the mean, popular girl in high school who’ll be very close with Mady. Colin will be a heartbreaker who likes to be the “man” and organize/protect…little old gentleman. Aidan will be the guy who’s friends w. all the girls but will never get a girlfriend. Joel…yeah future Ryan seacrest…probably wanna go get manicures w. mommy.

    OH MY GODD…why in the WORLD would she need a secruitygard while filming her reality series??? Isn’t it enough that there are like 15 camera men and crew around? This one bodygard is going to wail off some crazy fan? Ha.
    She will be hated, is hated and boycott this program. This family needs a wake up call.

  • jane

    Kate sucks take this show off the air TLC.

  • Margot

    First of all, I’d like to see proof Jodi & Kevin got paid. I don’t believe they did. Kevin’s business is far from suffering – just trust me on that one.

    And Vickie – it isn’t as simple as her just being seen with her bodyguard or even that she has a bodyguard or even that there is speculation. JON told family HE suspected she was having an affir WITH THE BODYGUARD.

    THAT’S the story.

    And no, Jodi didn’t think everything was fine until now. She has been trying to get the truth out for quite some time. It’s sad it took a little scandal like this to get mainstream media attention, but she’ll take the first door opened to get the ball rolling to turn the focus back on what is happening to the children, and my guess is she’s stepping right on through that door. There will be more and it will not be from a tabloid. She’s got their attention now. Just wait and watch who comes calling.
