Thank God that article was written! Hopefully that will will shut the crazy people up, but I seriously doubt it!

Bloggers can't seem to leave the Gosselins alone. They are scrutinized for everything from their choice to eat organic foods and hire help to allowing cameras to capture their everyday lives.

Gee, YOU THINK?

Many of the Gosselins' neighbors say the filming does not affect their daily lives.

"Every once in a while the camera crews are out but they aren't blocking the road," said neighbor, John Gallucci, 42.


Wow. No kidding? From what I keep reading at GWoP and their "truth telling" member's satellite hate blogs, the neighbors hate J&K and they have NO ONE that will speak up for them. Gee. Looky there. A non-catty neighbor without an axe to grind. Whodathunkit?

Yes, I thought this was revealing too. Either the writers didn't find anyone in the near vicinity who wanted to bash the Gosselins or if they did, they must not have felt their comments were indicative of the larger community's feelings on the matter.

Very interesting indeed.

What's interesting is that the people who were probably part of the, er, gawking without discretion--i.e. GWOP--are doing a 180 in light of the news story!

GWOP's post about the Pennlive.com story ends with the comment, "We really don't want people on the Gosselins' lawn either."

What a load of hooey! THEY are the ones who posted photos of the family's anti-trespassing signs (likely taken by a sympatico-to-GWOP stalker)along with snide remarks claiming that the family shouldn't be upset when "fans" come to their front door unsolicited. THEY are the ones that elicit "Gosselin sightings" on the blog. In short, THEY are the ones who implicitly encourage trespassers with the excuse that the family asked for it.

Funny, I can't now find that post in which photos of the no-trespassing signs were first unveiled. Can anyone else?

Do you guys remember this ...

"Hi. I'm reporting live from outside of the Gosselin house. Sshh. I can't talk too loud because I'm hiding in their bushes.

I'm doing surveillance outside their home because we've got inside information that Jon & Kate are having friends over this evening. This is either inaccurate information or damage control because we've never seen them with friends in the 22 minutes that air each week.

Sshhhhhh, Lets have a listen from the secret recording devices we've planted in their house.

(Hears laughter.)

Clearly the sound of happiness and laughter is damage control. We're sure they've been reading GwoP. Back to you GwoP."

The GWoPer's will turn this aroudn to say "See, the neighbors don't report their privacy being violated. Just proves that Kate is a diva about the sign." Weird that there wasn't a barrage of comments on article.

Yes Linda, I remember that and it wasn't funny the first time.

To each their own! Have a good day anonymous 12:23.

I thought it was funny.

Linda said...

Thanks Fanny!

I think that Anonymous does not find it to be funny because it is a satirical look at the absurdity of the tactics of GwoP.

(Here's another!)

"Hi. I'm reporting live from inside Dick's Sporting Goods.

I'm actually hiding inside the HVAC ductwork in the store so I can provide Gwop with a first hand account of the family's shopping spree.

I'll be reporting live with that story in a few minutes. Back to you GwoP."

Not surprised there were not tons of comments on the article. Odd also that this is the time the blog has chosen to go into sleep mode. So very sorry if someone is ill, but there seem to be so many names listed as moderators.

Oh well. It is just more validation for me, after reading the article, that the things that get posted as evidence and proof that these are evil, horrible, bad people are nothing but little snippets written up and then spun to sound like a sinister plot by the Gosselins. Like the sign on the lawn and the rumor that neighbors are up in arms and fighting mad. Doesn't sound like this is the case at all. I do hope that when the family moves they are more careful about revealing too much about that location. I still tend to think that they will soon wrap this all up and end it. The kids are getting older and they sound to me as if they are weary of all the ugly stuff. Good for them, if that's the case.

I think you might be giving them too much credit insinuating that they hide out in public places. I could easily see them in the bushes outside the gosselin's home. Or in the bathtub. CREE-PY

I gotta say this - I am more worried about "fans" of these people. I just saw links to pictures posted by a "fan" on another site of the blue van, including the license plate number. Can we say "stalker" For once, I think the Gosselins should be made aware and this should be taken down. I think the other pictures that showed up of the "fan" on their lawn was someone who loves the family too. What kind of nut would post such a thing.
