Yesterday Kate Gosselin appeared on the Today Show, where in an interview she told the world that ex-husband Jon Gosselin works a “mediocre….regular job”, promptly insulting regular-job-working Americans like moi. The woman makes me CRAZY. Crazy, I tell you. I think she’s such a snot – to put it nicely. She has a really crappy attitude, and wish she’d just drop off the face of the earth, to be honest. Let’s follow up with Kate in 10 years when her kids are all teenagers – and she’s back to her crazy long-on-one-side hair cut. Deal?
Anyway, back to yesterday. Well, apparently – according to Kate – she was just defending herself. Oh PS: good luck figuring out what the heck she’s even talking about. I read this about 4 times, and I’m still not sure I understand it. From Hollybaby:
“2clarify re ‘mediocre’ – I meant this job is not a career acc 2 jon but tv is 4 me & is hard but will prov best opps 4 my kids vs nursing!” Kate wrote on Twitter, attempting to backtrack
“So, because my husband and I aren’t on tv constantly like @Kateplusmy8 , we’re only providing a “mediocre” life for our daughter?” A Twitter follower tweeted at Kate, who replied with, “That’s not wut I said @all. Was responding 2jons comment only re ME getting a ‘normal’ job–which would not work$ bc I hav 8!”
Does she really believe that keeping them on TV – and all the garbage that comes with it – is actually better for her children rather than going back to nursing? Really? Cause all the other reality-show-kids that have come before her children have all turned out so great?
Kate Gosselin is finding herself in hot water this morning for saying in an interview on the Today Show that ex-husband Jon Gosselin works a “mediocre…regular job”.
“So according to @Kateplusmy8 people that are not in tv are just mediocre!!!” wrote her fan, @macgal_74.
Gosselin immediately explained her comment on Twitter.
” not what I meant.. I meant this job is not a career acc 2 jon but tv is and is hard but will prov best opps 4 my kids vs nursing!” Jon reportedly works in solar-panel construction.
She then added, “2clarify re ‘mediocre’ – I meant this job is not a career acc 2 jon but tv is 4 me & is hard but will prov best opps 4 my kids vs nursing!”
The comment came up when Lauer asked her about estranged husband Jon saying he was “very relieved” the show was over.
Gosselin replied, “It’ a situation where Jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids and working a regular job. I want the best for my kids and the best opportunities not unlike every parent. To be a good parent is to work as hard as you can and give them the best opportunities in life, and this has provided that.”
I have always thought Kate was a mega-bitch, even when she and Jon were still together. What she said doesn’t surprise me a bit. Would we expect anything less from her?
So what’s next for Kate? She also announced this morning her first post-Kate Plus 8 project.
“KatePlusMy8.com goes live today as a place where fans can go and follow us, so we’re not just sort of ending,” she said. The site is still under construction.
“Announcement!As I relayed on Today www.kateplusmy8.com goes LIVE today..(wrk in progress)Chekin&c wut we’re doing&find answers2 all ?’s 4me!” she Tweeted.
Earlier today I posted on a People article, in which Kate Gosselin claims to be “terrified” about her future – and doesn’t know how she’s going to support her family. She claims she’ll “work her fingers to the bone” to make ends meet.
Well, she must not be TOO terrified, cause homegirl just dropped some dough on a hot new Audi. But, when asked about the purchase, Kate said that this car wasn’t a big deal. It’s a used car and she got a great deal on it. Also, it was purchased before she knew that the show was cancelled.
Uh huh sure.
Kate Gosselin and her brood are on the cover of People Magazine again, and yet this time, it seems much more desperate. Since her reality show was canceled on TLC, Kate is terrified of her future – and is trying desperately to stay relevant.
Kate Gosselin’s long-time TLC show Kate Plus 8 has been canceled, and she’s the first to admit that the transition from reality star to regular mom isn’t going to be an easy one.
“I’m freaking out. Big time,” she tells PEOPLE in the new issue.
Her kids, twins Cara and Mady, and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel “weren’t ready,” to leave the show, which has been airing since 2005, she adds. “Nobody was. I’ve never quit a job in my life without having something else lined up. I don’t know what’s next.”
But Gosselin, 36, whose messy divorce from husband Jon played out in the tabloids – and on TV – in 2009, vows to work hard to keep the lifestyle she’s provided for her kids.
“I told them I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school,” she says. “There are no guarantees in life for anyone, but they know that I’m giving it my best shot.”
The final episode of Kate Plus 8 airs Sept. 12 on TLC.
I really hope for these kids sake that Kate doesn’t find anything else in the public eye. She should retire from anything on TV – move to a new city – and let her children try and have a bit of a normal childhood. I wonder what’s in store for ol’ Kate…
Kate Gosselin put on a brave (twitter) face when she learned of her shows cancellation but you know that the Kate Plus 8 star is totally bummed about the whole thing. Kate has to start all over again and figure out a way to make money, keep her house and feed the kids. Jon pays child support, but that’s not going to be enough money for Kate’s lavish lifestyle.
Perhaps one of the kids will get a job. Why not! They’ve been paying for mom and dad their whole lives. Apparently Kate and Jon’s elder daughter Mady is interested in acting. Hearing that, Kate took to twitter and joked “Aww that Mady… So well spoken! Wants to do MORE tv!!! Disney anyone? Lol”
I can totally see Kate pushing her kids into showbiz. Those kids have been paying her bills up until now anyway! Without the 8 – Kate wouldn’t be anything!
Newly unemployed Kate Gosselin was spotted with her tribe of tots going to get back-to-school haircuts. I wonder where she decided to take the clan, maybe the same place she goes to get her $2,000 hair treatments? Who knows. One thing’s for sure: she’s got some adorable kiddies.
