BODY LANGUAGE OF SHAME
Whenever you see anyone with bowed head and rounded shoulders, it means they feel shame or embarrassment or humiliation. It is interesting that the three kids in closest proximity to Kate, Colin, Hannah, and Alexis are the ones who show this distinctive body language.
They also show sadness on their faces.Perhaps she yelled at them or scolded them or shamed them. In any event, it is clearly reflected in their body language.
KATE ONLY HOLDING HANDS WITH WITH HANNAH
It is also interesting that Kate is being consistent in favoring one of the girl sextuplets, Hannah. Hannah appears to be the only child who’s hand Kate is holding.
Even her favorite child’s head is bowed and shoulders are rounded, as Hannah looks down at the ground. This indicates that Hannah also may be feeling shame, upset,and embarrassment as well.
COLIN DISTANCES HIMSELF
Little Colin, no doubt also feels the same negative emotion as his two sisters, based on his similar dejected body language. He is five steps away to the right of Kate and seems to be cut off from the entire group.
He too, does not look very happy as he looks down. So, in a protective move, Colin appears to have distanced himself from his mother as well as the entire brood.
THE OTHER KIDS TRAIL BEHIND
The other children trail three steps behind Kate. But they do not look shamed or embarrassed. Perhaps they are too far back to hear Kate’s vitriol.
AIDEN IS ALERTED THAT MOMMY MAY BE UPSET
Aiden’s body language shows that he is alerted that something may not be right ahead.
He looks up-and turns his head to be in the line of vision of his mom, Kate.
MADY’S BEING MATERNAL
Mady, the younger of the twins who used to be the one to act up and demand attention and cry all the time on the show and the one who never seemed to help with the other kids, now seems to show a maternal side in this photo.
She reaches out and places her hand on Aiden’s back in what appears to be a comforting gesture. Mady also seems to have a caring and concerned expression on her face.
TWINS DELEGATED TO CARRY THE BAGS AND THE TOYS
Maybe Kate wanted to look her best for the papps she hates, so she didn’t want to ruin her photo op by shlepping two huge stuffed animals around. That is why she may have delegated the task over to the twins Cara and Maddy.
Mady seems to just be carrying her own toy under her arm, while poor Cara, the one who was seen as the responsible and mommy- helping twin on the show, seems to be struggling with a large bag which appears to be dragging.
The bag contains her toy, an identical one to Mady’s and a lot of other items as well. She is off to the side and appears to be focusing on being able to carry all of the items.
JOEL AND LEAH TRAILING BEHIND
Kate always used to describe little Joel as being” under the radar. ” Well he certainly is in this photo. His head isn’t bowed so he did not hear any of Kate’s possible harsh or shaming words. He stands close to the nanny , who also stands in back next to him holding his little hand.
The nanny also appears to be holding the littlest of the Gosselin sextuplets, Alexis’ hand as well.
Leah has upright posture, which shows she isn’t shamed or feeling humiliated. She stands close to the nanny holding her blanket over her arm and focusing on what’s ahead of her.
THE GOSSLELIN KIDS WILL BE BACK ON TV
Jon no doubt worked out a deal where he allowed the kids back on TV in exchange for forgiving his debt to TLC. Do I think that it is a good idea for school age kids to be on TV and have cameras following them around all the time? Not really.
When they were younger it was sweet to see them grow up right before our eyes. But now that they will be going to school and interacting with their peers, it may create some additional problems for them.
If their peers tell them that they saw them on TV, the correct answers IS NOT as Kate instructed Leah to once say to her classmates on one of the last shows” I don’t want to talk about it.” I hope Kate is not continuing to misguide her children to say this. If she continues to encourage this , she will be responsible for having them alienate their fellow students.
Personally , I think that the kids have enough money with trust funds set up for them for their future, so they really don’t need to be on TV to earn more money. But that is a choice Kate made, Jon caved into, and TLC has definitely made, in order to secure continued revenue from a winning media franchise.
I think that a show featuring the kids will do very for TLC as a lot of people will love the kids and will watch it. Perhaps TLC gave Kate her own show as an insurance policy in case Jon ever changes his mind decides that he doesn’t want the kids on TV anymore.
Personally I think they should offer a show to Nadya Suleman rather than giving Kate her own show. Nadya really needs the money and their guardian angelship.Maybe they can just film Nadya’s babies growing up and leave the school age kids alone so that they can have some privacy.
ITLESS KATE AND HER OWN SHOW
Personally I cannot imagine a successful a show featuring ITLESS Kate alone without her kids. Let’s face it, the only reason she is in the media at all is because of her kids.
The woman in my view has absolutely nothing whatsoever to bring to the table. She is not a professional. She is not knowledgeable. She has not been the “mother of the year” with being abusive to ex husband in front of her kids as well as being verbally abusive to them.
She is not interesting or watchable in my view. She is not talented and she is definitely NOT likable. No matter how hard TLC tries to revamp her image by dressing her up and placing hair extensions in her head, or getting her to cry on cue or coaching her what to say in interview, she is still Kate. The real Kate will always emerge and it will take years of therapy to see a real change, if change if we can ever see a change at all.
Personally I think her personality issues that we have all seen run very deep. Her inner anger, self absorption, not getting along with family members and alienating so many who were her friends and who worked with, her speak volumes. Since she would need a licensed therapist to diagnose her underlying pathology. Therefore, I will leave that to them.
