Kate's the One Who Gave the Fuzz a Buzz

8/14/2009 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

kate gosselinSources close to Kate Gosselin tell us she was the one who called the cops last night after she and Jon got into a blowout.

Police arrived to the Gosselin's Pennsylvania home shortly after the call was made.

Cops told us they were only at the residence for around 10 minutes -- long enough to make everyone take a chill pill.

Kate eventually left the property to stay at a nearby Days Inn Hotel, because it was Jon's turn to watch their litter.

Did anyone consider that maybe one of the older children called Kate? Jon may have been carrying on with the nanny HE hired, 22 year old Stephanie Santoro, It's been rumored he was sleeping around with the nanny. Why all the talk about the nanny if there's no truth to it.

Whys everyone putting Kate down? Who knows what Jon the mid life crisis jerk did.. He probably brought one of his girlfriends home & that would be hard on the kids. Kate tries to protect the kids & Jon seems to not care, hes only into his young girlfriends. Very sad situation. Kate should find a real man, one who doesn't act like he's 20. And Jon should put his children FIRST!!! I for one cannot even stand to look at him...

Its all a ratings hoax. The shows ratings were falling and the divorce and drama has put the show back into the lime light. Lets quit this, Stop watching the show and let them get dirt poor like they deserve. Let them reap the consiquences of their poor decsions, not rewad them for them.

Nice job guys - call the cops in front of the kids. It will only get worse in the days to come. I'd like to know why she called the cops though.

YOU GO KAte!!!! Kick his butt....even though they r "separated" he's still considered a married man!! So all those girls need to back off until he's divorced is finalized!! I'm on Kate's side he's just looking like an idiot the entire time!! The show should be called KATE PLUS EIGHT...and they should cut his a** out of the show!! I think it would get more ratings because all Jons doing is making a fool out of himself with all these women!! IF TLC was smart they would take him off and let Kate run the show!! It should be a show about her life as a single parent raising 8 kids by herself because obviously her heart is still in it and he's off being single ready too mingle!!!

The story states the "sources close to Kate" tell us that she is the one who called police. The sources have to be TLC since she has no friends or family who are close to her. Not even on speaking terms.
Can you say PUBLICITY STUNT?

WHY DO WE PAY ANY ATTENTION TO THESE PEOPLE. THEY CHOSE TO HAVE ALL OF THESE CHILDREN AND SHOULD HAVE HAD A PLAN IN ACTION TO SUPPORT THEM. LOOK WHAT WE...THE PUBLIC... ARE MAKING AVAILABLE FOR THEM THROUGH THAT STUPID SHOW...THEIR KIDS WEAR DESIGNER CLOTHING, THEY SEEM TO HAVE CROCS IN EVERY COLOR. THEY DRIVE EXPENSIVE AUTOMOBILES, WHAT'S WITH JOHN A BMW, AND KATE HAS SEVERAL PLUS THE FAMILY VAN. THEY HAVE A POOL, A BEAUTIFULLY FURNISHED HOME WITH A BRAND NEW VERY EXPENSIVE KITCHEN UPDATE. KATE IS ALWAYS OFF GETTING HER HIGH HIGH LIGHTED, AND NEW NAILS AND MANICURES, WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT... THOSE CROOKED HOUSES THE KIDS JUST RECENTLY GOT WHICH WERE ' DONATED' HAVE A COST OF OVER 1O GRAND EACH..GO TO THE CROOKED HOUSE WEBSITE. THIS IS INSANE, WE WORK HARD, PAY OUR OWN BILLS, HAVE FAMILIES WE CAN AFFORD, NOT OFF TO JONAS BROTHERS CONCERTS, DISNEY WORLD, HUGES EXPENSIVE KID BIRTHDAY PARTIES, AND THEY ARE GETTNG IT ALL FOR FREE. SEEING MATTIE AND CARA I CAN HARDLY STAND THEM. THEY ARE SPOILED, RUDE, AND ALL SHOW FOR THE CAMERA. THIS GOSSLIN FAMILY IS MAKING ME SICK, AND I HAVE REALLY NEVER CHOSEN TO COMMENT, BUT THIS KATE THING ALL FOR MORE ATTENTION...YUK... CANCEL AND SHOW AND MAKE THESE PEOPLE GET A JOB.

Okay, this is getting to the point of ridiculousness . . . I canceled my People magazine subscription because for three weeks in almost consecutive fashion they featured the Jon & Kate Plus 8 on the cover. I did not pay for exclusive behind the scenes drama about a show I do not watch NOR care to! And these two twits for parents - I would be ashamed and embarrassed that my parents separation and divorce played out on national television. When these kids get to be old enough, I can guarantee you that at least one or two of them are going to have serious psychological issues relating to their parents Jon and Kate. And finally, I officially have banned TLC from my viewing channels. Until this show is either off the air or gets canceled until then, sorry TLC - not interested. The Learning Channel? Seriously. This is what you propagate on how to separate and divorce on national television! They would be wise to pull this show by next season so these two can raise their kids privately and not on national television! Until that day - no TLC for me!

That's pretty impressive. They went from reality show stars to white trash in 60 seconds flat.

thoughts:

I have found the entire spectacle, from the beginning, of these parents willingly and gladly displaying their own children on national television APPALLING!

These two uneducated, un-savvy, uninteresting, limited, greedy people chose for years to allow the most intimate, tender, and/or embarassing moments in their children's lives to be broadcast to the world, packaged & sold, x 8!

That said, I believe that Jon -- not defending his stupidity, immaturity, or greed -- but I believe that Jon is/was an Abused Spouse. Not that he was an angel-- but in comparison to that abusive harpy he married, well, OMG. But an abused spouse nonetheless. (We only have to imagine the uproar if the genders had been reversed. Many, many more people would have been able to see it as Spousal Abuse -- emotional, physical, everything -- and the plug would've already been pulled-- and who knows, perhaps even incarceration or restraining orders would've already been issued.)

But no, it was the woman doing the abusing, for which, inexplicably, society has more tolerance. Something about the "men-can't-do-anything-right" [eye-roll] mentality that Kate lives & breathes and that so many women seem to share (though I do NOT).

So here is Jon -- immature, selfish, limited, and uneducated -- (yet not a bad person...I believe he loves his children, did most of the work of caring for them & raising them, and actually has a bond with them that they seem to reciprocate), yet here he is, abused and henpecked to within an inch of his life, having stayed in this marriage whether from that inertia and low-self-esteem that comes from being "beaten down" for years, and/or by contract with TLC, etc., suddenly sprung and FREE from the constant abuse!

And what does he do? Well, he goes rather nuts. The designer T-shirts, tats, earrings, motorcylces, babes, smoking-- all the bad & stupid vices-- all symptoms of this over-the-top excess all come out in reckless and un-self-conscious abandon.

Consider the pathetic description he's given of his (inappropriate and too soon!) relationship with Hailey. He says that (paraphrasing) "she listens" to him, and that she "let's him be who he is." Now, as ridiculous as it looks for this pugdy father of 8 to dandle around with a 22 year old, to him, she's the anti-Kate, and that's Hailey's most appealing feature. And while the very LAST thing he needs right now is to even consider jumping into another relationship with anyone, it's understandable that a man who's starving & thirsting for a little attention, tenderness, and acceptance might find it in the arms of a green 22 year old. Again, not defending and (trying) not to judge. I just think it's SAD. This too, I believe, follows a predictable pattern of the abused spouse suddenly free. They tend to go overboard in all areas, and often jump into the arms of anyone who seems willing, safe, and kind.

[And this is not even to address the many possible levels of duplicity that may be at play here by TLC, Kate, etc. to "make Kate look like the victim by making sure that Jon looks bad" that we may never know about.]

If there's any hope for these children, it's that their father burns off this stupid adolescent fever in a hurry and finds some "new normal" for himself and gets down to raising them out of the public eye, out of that Mansion McPrison, into some good family counseling, and off the TV

Our television remote has a several buttons for these people. We have decided to use them---- channel up and down and the off switch. It is nice to have choices.
