I can’t tell you what a kick I got out of watching this segment on the Today Show this morning.
Kate Gosselin drug her 13-year-old twin daughters on to the Today Show this morning to talk about an interview they did with People magazine last week. Katie wanted the world to know that no matter what Jon Gosselin – or anyone else says – they are doing just fine. When Savannah Guthrie asked Cara and Mady Gosselin how they were doing, neither one of them would say a word. Instead, they shot their mother a look that could kill. It was all caught on tape.
For the rest of the interview, a very annoyed Kate tried to make up for the awkward moment. In the end the girls said they’d like to do another TV show. Just as mommy dearest told them.
Here’s a vintage 2009 photo of Kate Gosselin, to remind us of the golden years…
Interestingly (but maybe not surprisingly), the reality star has dropped her multi-million dollar lawsuit against ex Jon Gosselin for writing a very “defamatory” book about their relationship. If you’ve already forgotten, the lawsuit included cases against the two wiretapping, computer hacking, and faking her identity. Apparently, she dismissed the suit “with prejudice,” which means she can never sue him for this particular thing ever again!
Maybe more pertinent is the fact that she did NOT drop the case against the other defendant Robert Hoffman, the actual author of Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World. That one’s still hot, people!
According to PerezHilton, The lawsuit was initially brought to court after Mr. Hoffman released his scandalous book that had VERY intimate knowledge of Kate Gosselin. Kate accused Mr. Hoffman and her ex husband of partnering up and illegally wiretapping her phone and email. She also claimed Jon stole a hard drive from her home!
Here was what motion filed in the United States District Court of Pennsylvania on Tuesday said:
“Plaintiff Kate Gosselin agrees to dismiss with prejudice all claims and potential claims that she has or may have against Defendant Jonathan K. Gosselin that were or could have been asserted in this case. By this motion, Plaintiff Kate Gosselin is not dismissing her claims against any Defendant other than Defendant Jonathan K. Gosselin. Defendant Jonathan K. Gosselin agrees to dismiss with prejudice all counterclaims or potential counterclaims that he has or may have against Plaintiff Kate Gosselin that were or could have been asserted in this case.”
Of course, we can all speculate about why Kate dropped the case against her ex…the prime reason being that the dude’s BROKE! Thoughts?
Kate Gosselin continues to try and remain relevant, this time by writing a cookbook. The cover of the cookbook, titled “Love is in the Mix.” I don’t know if it’s just me – but everything she does just seem so desperate. Doesn’t it? I mean these days ANYONE can write a cookbook. Cookbooks are a dime a dozen. Why would anyone pick up the Kate Gosselin cookbook? You’d have to be a fan of hers, I imagine. I don’t see your normal cookbook shopper pulling out Kate’s book and saying “Hmm, this one looks perfect!”
According to Radar, this new cookbook is even a disappointment to her die-hard fans.
The customer reviews on Amazon are about as devastatingly bad as they come, and as far as we can tell, ex-husband Jon Gosselin didn’t pen any of them.
“Honestly I believe that anyone who writes a cookbook should have honest skills and training. This is a celebrity vanity book that happens to have a few non-original recipes,” wrote Amy.
“What a terrible waste of time and money. Recipes seem to be recycled from the back of soup cans and internet recipe sites,” chimed in Jason.
“I’m not sure why this was even published,” wrote Brenda, warning other customers, “don’t waste your money.”
After the deluge of negative reviews over the first several weeks following the book’s September 24 publication, suddenly several extremely positive ones — “wonderful & amazing” — magically appeared. in the last few days. Maybe Gosselin’s eight kids hit their computers?
But even that’s not helping sales. The book is DOA. It’s almost off the chart on the downside, number 14,944 on Amazon’s sales list.
Onto the next venture! What will she do next to make money?
There’s no love lost between Kate Gosselin and her ex, Jon, these days.
Years after ‘Jon and Kate Plus 8′ ended, and their marriage fell apart, things seem to be at their worst. Both parents are headed to court. Kate has filed a lawsuit, accusing her ex of hacking her phone and computer, and stealing her hard drive, in order to gain defamatory material for Robert Hoffman’s tell-all book, ‘Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World.’
Kate stopped by the Today show this morning to explain why the lawsuit was necessary. “It’s in the middle of litigation, so I cannot say a lot about it,” she said. “I can say that when we started out investigating the source of what was happening, I made the decision back then to push this. … Actually, I’ve lost a lot of employment opportunities over the rumor mill circulating false stuff.”
She said the worst part of it all, was learning “who was at the center of it.” She explained the lawsuit had to happen. “It has to be done for the safety and the future of my kids,” she told TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie.
With all this, she says she still doesn’t regret doing the TV show to begin with. “Honestly, 100 percent, the kids and I would both tell you it’s a great experience,” she said of their “Plus 8″ days. “I do not regret anything in my life, and if I could rewind time, I would absolutely do the show again.”
Kate is also promoting her own new book, “Kate Gosselin’s Love Is in the Mix,” which features recipes, tips and tales for cooking for a big brood. It hits stores Tuesday.
These are new pictures of Kate leaving the Today studio this morning.
Yesterday a photo of Kate Gosselin making what many are calling a racist gesture – was leaked online. Today, the one-time reality star is defending herself.
Gosselin, 38, wrote on her blog that she’s “the last person [who] could be called a racist.” She goes on to say that the photo was private, and never meant to be shared, and reminds her of happier times with ex-husband Jon Gosselin. She claims they were just “goofing off” when the picture was taken.
“Jon and I were opening fan mail together one afternoon … and when we opened this plastic Asian dress-up wig sent from a caring fan, we smiled, each taking turns posing in it and snapping photos (on my phone) of each other,” Gosselin wrote Tuesday. “I ‘slanted’ my eyes to show him my best Asian impression, which made him smile.”
“A common topic of our show was ‘everybody’s Asian’ – except for mommy, so a thoughtful fan figured she’d help me look Asian too!” Gosselin writes.
“It’s normal to talk about and even ‘exaggerate’ the feature differences between family members of a biracial family as they are noticed by curious growing children within the family. These types of discoveries and at home discussions are a normal part of being a loving, accepting, biracial family and it does not make any of us prejudiced!”
The TV personality, who calls her children’s heritage “perfect,” goes on to say that in her family, “We don’t see color or preference, we see qualities and hearts.”
I think it sounds like a perfectly good explanation….. what do you think?
