The Gosselins now battle over birthday cakes

Posted: 07:58 AM ET

For days, Kate Gosselin, at war with her estranged husband, has been excited about the peaceful prospect of making a chocolate birthday cake from scratch for her twins Mady and Cara, who celebrate their ninth birthday Thursday.

Now it looks like even Kate's chocolate cake may be caught up in the bitterness.

On Wednesday, Jon, 32, was spotted with bags of gifts for his oldest daughters - and a big box from a high-end New York City bakery.

Earlier in the day, Jon had accused Kate, 34, of trying to change the arrangement they had worked out to spend the birthday together by insisting that he only spend two hours in the late afternoon and early evening with the kids.

"She's trying to prevent me from seeing my kids on their birthday because she doesn't want to see me," he said of Kate's actions.

Jon insisted at the time that, because it is still his home, he would stay as long as he wanted. According to his lawyer, the reality TV dad has left Manhattan for Pennsylvania - and intends to stick with his plan.

"I would think both parents would want to make the kids happy," said attorney Mark Heller. "I would they'd want to put on their happy faces for the kids rather than make it a tag team wrestling match. I'm hopeful ... the twins can celebrate their birthday with both mom and dad."

In other Gosselin news, a court hearing over the couple's financial dispute - Jon reportedly took $230,000 from a joint account without his wife's permission - was postponed due to the death of the judge's wife, and has not yet been rescheduled, said Heller.

Kate is nothing but a money hungry witch who sees her children as cash cows! There was an article Kate decided to estrange herself from her parents after the congregation where her father was a pastor donated baby items before the last set twins were born. Kate wanted COLD HARD CASH instead of the baby gifts! She refused the gifts and didn't even say thank you to the congregation.

ENOUGH!!!

Around and around and around it Goes-WHY DO WE NEED TO SUBJECTED TO THIS SELFISH COUPLE?

Kate is a terrible mother. I watched American Beauty recently and was surprised at how the movie reminded me of this horrid couple (the Annette Bening/Kevin Spacey characters)-UGGH!

Those poor kids! Those poor kids!-PLEASE take them off display during this freak show of a divorce. TLC should be sued by the public.

Real news solution for the war in Afganistan right here

I say get out all those buff prisoners from every state theres about one million and half of them im sure.

Pick the ones who are willing to have their records expunged, and those who are rehabilitated, and who will fight for their countries.

Give them one task , to fight and kill the Taliban and Osama.

Send them all on foot with weapond and let them hike through those mountains, and fight the Taliban head on.

I bet they would kick some “Arse”

Theres plenty of cholos gangsters, bloods, crips, and neo nazi skin heads that would proudly do the job.

Send the prisoners over there. This would solve two problems.

who the hell cares about Jon and Kate? we are at war

If you want the drama to end stop watching the show and stay away from the tabloids. Don't complain, refrain.

Kate Gosselin is not a saint as she presents herself to the public. She is a control freak with a sharp tongue that make you cower into the corner, and evil eyes that can cut you into ribbons! I truly feel sorry for the kids when she loses her violent temper..she must belittle and ridicule this little children behind close doors!

She strongly reminds me of Cindy Anthony, Caylee's grandmother!

@ alex lyrics LOL

I say let the Europeans deal with Afghan. We already pulled out once and left them hanging. They will Never trust us anyway.

Solution of our economy!!

War Less

Manufacture and Export more!

You don't see China running around the world at War! You only see them manufacturing, building and exporting. We despirately need to go back to that status.

We built this country's power by MANUFACTURING AND EXPORTING! NOT WAR!!!

Jon & Kate... I plead the 5th!

((( YOU COULD NOT PRINT WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THEM!!! )))


Connie ~ IL   October 9th, 2009 12:18 pm ET

They are both being really bad parents...


carebear   October 9th, 2009 1:21 pm ET

I truly feel badly for their children. It's always the children who suffer the most.


Michelle D. Fonthill,Ont   October 9th, 2009 2:01 pm ET

This fighting is like a story out of a movie War of The roses only it now called War of the Gosslelins . The poor kids that are caught int he middle of this feud i feel so bad for them .


Jasmine   October 9th, 2009 4:38 pm ET

How in the world can anyone talk or go against a mother like Kate? Any woman that carried 6 babies at one time is to be commended not ever to be criticized ever..I've watched Kate and John take care of their children, the both of them are doing a great job..Leave Kate and her babies alone...


vallary   October 9th, 2009 8:56 pm ET

TIme is going to go so fast for them and their kids, That they will never get back. SO things don't work out between the so called adults in this game. put that to the side and live for your kids, not the money or who is doing what. But, the time. because you can have all the cakes in the world but time is something that will never get back. and you don't know what tomorrow will bring. SO don't get so busy mopping the floor that you forget to turn the faucet off.


Tessa   October 10th, 2009 1:34 pm ET

Jasmine--It's Kate who craves to be in front of tv along with her cash cow children. If it weren't for the children, she and Jon would never had a show that made them rich! The only reason why she wants to continue the show with TLC because she hears the big "ka-ching" all the way to the bank ..not because of the children wanting to continue to do the show! If you want the public to leave the family alone, Kate needs to stop the tv circuits and her blabs about her supposedly financial sufferings! In addition, stop the exposure and exploiting of the little Gosselin children! These cute little children need a guardian from the court to make sure they are safe and their needs are being met.

It might be over for all of them before they even touch the ground. No, but kudos to you for thinking outside the square.


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   October 10th, 2009 11:18 pm ET

If Kate did try to change the original plans, that is quite sad. I hope the Gosselins can reach a better compromise.


Jasmine   October 11th, 2009 1:37 am ET

Tessa – The kids loves the spotllight and what better way to have someone watch all 8 of them...My mother raised 11 children and all are a year apart...with 2 exception...the two oldest one..9 stair steps..
I think Kate should continue with this show..It will benefit the entire family.
If I had the chance to benefit my children future and make sure all things are good and don't have to struggle with clothing, food, and their basic needs, i would do the same thing...More power to Kate.


Mariam   October 11th, 2009 1:50 am ET

Leave this family alone in peace.

The Gosselin children should be taken out of the limelight and allow them to have a normal childhood away from the prying eyes of the viewers. The battle between Kate and Jon is affecting the children already...they are breaking down in tears and one already having a temper tantrum and made her little brother cry by hitting him on the head hard for no reason. She just ran by him while he was sitting on the floor playing and hit him on the head with her fist....that is one angry little girl who will have some problems in her life later on.


Teresa   October 11th, 2009 9:07 am ET

The Gosselins children simply want to have a normal childhood without the spotlight and paparazzis clambering all over them! The twins Maddie and Kara broke down in tears while being picked up from school by their father Jon and the paparazzis were swarming around them like a bunch of bees!

The little children are still very young to make the right decision tabout whether they do want to continue with the tv show...it's Kate and TLC who are running their lives. Kate and TLC need to leave these children alone and allow them to have their childhood, be just kids, and play with their friends!

How many celebrities were deprived of their childhood and ended up as messed up adults...booze and drugs to drown out their past emotional pains.

As I say, Kate and TLC should leave the Gosselin children alone and if Kate wants to remain in showbiz....so be it without the expense of the children! Kate should be able to paddle her own canoe if she truly wants to remain a famous celeb!
