Ok, that second pantry video is PATHETIC! I've been lurking on this thread forever and side eyeing these guys since they started obviously milking the viral finding out they were pregnant with quads video, but the second pantry and cheerios video have put me over the edge. They cannot maintain followers with this bullshit, right?! People that adore, follow and can't see through people like this make me loose faith in humanity.

"Keeping up with Quads requires sustaining your energy. @premierprotein helps me stay ahead of 4 very busy toddlers! @InternetKilledTV, how are you going to make the day yours? #ad #PremierProtein #TheDayisYours"

Gosh yes, the cooking, cleaning and laundry for 4 little ones is so much work, and then add in planning activities and outings to stimulate their developing and ensure they get some fresh air and exercise. That's a lot of work.

Oh wait…

I started off thinking she was just overwhelmed and didn't know how to mother her kids.
I have lost all respect or empathy for her. She is just a dick.

Omg is that what it really says???

Here are a few excerpts from the newest video….

********They never asked for help??? All the promo codes and ads they hock are "asking" for help. You can go on YouTube and find video (I've watched it) of them asking for help crowdfunding their actual fertility treatments, which probably ended up being partially if not fully funded by others. I don't want to start anything with anyone, I just want people to not be blinded to their actions

I don't know what happened but the rest of my post didn't show up.

 

This is Assley's response to the previous post.  wish I could find the crowd funding IVF video….but its gone.

******- I would like you to post those links as I have never asked for any crowd funding and I'm concerned someone might be trying to get other to support them off my story! Before I ever got pregnant I started making and selling headbands to help save money and raise money for my Ivf. I don't think that is wrong at all. But I have never once asked for anyone to send us anything EVER! Please email me the YouTube links so I can get them removed. I would never want anyone to be taken advantage of.

 

Sorry for all the posts today….I can't help myself today.

***********A Miracle Unfolding-Gardner Quadruplets You are right, you have never asked outright since you started your social media journey. It has though, been "beaten around the bush" on several occasions until something showed up in the mail. 

I am referring to a video from 3 years ago that is soliciting donations and proceeds (no shame in that) where you state you are "saving and trying to RAISE money" for your infertility treatments. It's there for anyone to see. That, I believe, constitutes asking…..I found it when I first started following you in the beginning and wanted to watch every clip I could about your story! https://youtu.be/UgQINHa64Kg 

Once again, I'm not trying to be mean or start things. The promo codes, while giving people discounts, are helping you. The adds pushing products are helping you. That's a fact! It gives people a deal sure, but in the end, we have all become your customers rather than just followers interested in your journey. Every time we tune in or use a code we contribute to your lifestyle choices. I understand that, and am trying to help others, who haven't quite figured that out yet! 

**The comment I replied to said your had never asked for anything and I was just correcting her. **

I think your kids are cute and fun to watch. You guys do you. I'm just trying to keep the facts straight for everyone!

Interesting to note that Ashley states in this interview that she doesn't care for fame or anything like that.  She's all about spreading the word out there about infertility.  She's also stated recently that the only reason they blog/vlog is so the girls will have something to look at when they're older.

We've all done that, i.e., had home movies/pictures made during our growing up years.  But it's done for the most part, privately, strictly for our own benefit and that of our friends/family and not to sell us out to the nearest bidder. 

It's a shame these two parents, and apparently at least one of their parents, feel this shameless exploitation of these children is acceptable – or even moral.  In the days of spying and losing our privacy rights, I'm shocked to see so many people willingly give up their privacy in return for a few gratuitous gifts etc.

Omg that is too funny. I read the comment about donations and that video is the first thing that I thought of. I came here to post it lol! Here's the video of them thanking everyone for their donations too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPboOypWrBw

I haven't caught up on the recent posts here so I'll be back later for sure.

I don't even have words for these people now. Apart from the fact it has now become the Assley show, they now have no shame in whoring out their family, even promoting products from competing companies.

Funny how we've never seen Assley drink those shakes before. Even funnier that the same holding company produces Honey Graham Oh's which are the closest thing you'll find to Cheerios in the market.

I guess some people will do anything for money, even make themselves the laughing stock of the internet rofl

There is a certain satisfaction when you realise they don't seem to understand how ridiculous they appear with each new video…

They are too dumb to understand that.  What's a shame is that they keep getting rewarded for the behavior, which reinforces their delusions of grandeur and encourages them to keep it up. They are starting to make Kate Gosselin look like mother of the year!

Oh, and as of today I've been banned from commenting on their Facebook page, in addition to their YouTube channel. (that happened last month)  Boo hoo.

Perhaps I struck a nerve?  dancinglemon roflparty0006

We've never seen her drink those shakes and they're sold at their favorite store….Costco. Sadly I just bought these shakes at Costco today before I saw this video and now I want to return them, even though the are one of my favorite post workout drinks.

I will say I love how this is starting to blow up in her face. Much sooner than I thought. I was getting super annoyed reading the facebook commenter that kept reposting about how celebrities get paid for ads and promoting items. Yeah but they don't try to hid it being an ad and they're usually famous for having another talent. And a lot of celebrities protect their children from being in the spotlight.

They are so dedicated to helping infertile couples, there are 2 questions on the vlog today, not a peep out of them.  However, they did take time to post on another comment.  Asshats.

The links posted today are so interesting. Thank you for posting them! Causing a raucus – you posted that Ashley said, "I would like you to post those links as I have never asked for any crowd funding and I'm concerned someone might be trying to get other to support them off my story! Before I ever got pregnant I started making and selling headbands to help save money and raise money for my Ivf. I don't think that is wrong at all."

Help me with this – I honestly cannot believe she would lie? Am I missing something – check out the below links I found to their donation pages in 2013…

Peach, the link you posted had a link to a website in it.  Did you see that? The Gardner's posted a website on their youtube video from back then. See Peach's link again here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPboOypWrBw

That website the Gardner's posted in 2013 is http://www.allthingslovelydailydeals.com

Well, that site is down now – they must have taken it down. However, you can still look up old pages through something called the "waybackmachine." Check out their old store and DONATION link for their infertility. This is starting to make sense as they are used to receiving donations! 

"You can make a difference. Click the icon below to help Ashley and Tyson get one step closer to starting their family!"

https://web.archive.org/web/20131116022141/http://www.allthingslovelydailydeals.com/

This is what happens when you clicked the donation link in 2013:

https://web.archive.org/web/20131103020503/http://www.allthingslovelydailydeals.com/products/product/donation.php

https://web.archive.org/web/20131124084710/http://www.allthingslovelydailydeals.com/infertilty.php

Here's the master link to all the snapshots of their page back then – you just click on a date and it takes you there: https://web.archive.org/web/20130815000000*/http://www.allthingslovelydailydeals.com

What do you guys think? I mean having a store isn't a bad thing, but did she just deny they  received donations? Why would she? Why wouldn't she graciously thank everyone again in 2016/2017? Why wouldn't they have mentioned people's generosity toward their infertility in their early vlogs?
