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?
Kate Gosselin’s desperate attempts at remaining relevant (was she ever?) is getting downright sad. The one-time TV star is writing a new book about cooking/parenting/child bonding. Seriously.
She tweeted, “Have you heard? #LoveIsInTheMix is avail for preorder.” Love Is In the Mix sounds like a rehashed version of Chicken Soup for the Soul, except much cheesier. Because there are people who follow Gosselin and take her advice, for whatever reason, Gosselin has been re-tweeting messages from her fans all week. One fan even wrote, “Kate, congratulations on the book! I think it will give my mom and I plenty of cooking/bonding time together. We’re both big fans.”
Who buys her book, is my question. What person or parent out there is LOOKING for Kate Gosselin’s advice on ANYTHING?? It seems like Kate is trying anything to stay relevant, and it’s coming off as incredibly desperate.
Kate Gosselin is fuming mad – after she learned that her ex-husband Jon Gosselin let their children play with a pit bull dog.
RadarOnline reports that Jon’s girlfriend Liz was allowing the kids to hug and kiss her dog, and it was all caught on camera. The pictures sparked controversy, because many people believe those dogs are dangerous.
“Children who were victims of pit bulls Take a look & see why people care,” Kate retweeted.
Kate also tweeted about Hurricane Sandy. “RT @JasonBacke Yesssss! @tedgibson tedgibson BACK IN BUSINESS!!!!!! #sandy @ Ted Gibson Salon HALLELUJAH! So happy!” At least she’s tweeting about the important stuff.
A few years back my next door neighbor was attacked by a pitbull, and I watched the whole thing unfold. I think pit bulls are VERY volatile, and while I’m sure some of them are okay – I like to er on the side of caution. I wouldn’t own a pit bull, they just make me nervous.
Kate Gosselin is one of the lucky ones…this according to Kate Gosselin. Even though the entire world knows she’s had a facelift (c’mon now), the 37-year-old mother of eight explains she’s just lucky.
“I am probably one of the rare few who de-age,” Gosselin — who welcomed sextuplets in 2004 — told Bravo’s Andy Cohen during an appearance last week on Watch What Happens Live. Cohen wondered aloud about Gosselin’s potential enhancement after he showed off a “vintage” picture of Gosselin famously taken three days after she welcomed her babies with ex-husband Jon.
Calling the period shortly after giving birth to Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis and Hannah, now 8, “the roughest time ever,” former TLC reality star Gosselin reasoned that after having six babies at once, “you have to get better, right? You can’t get worse than that.” (Her sextuplets joined twins Cara and Maddy, now 12.)
Though she played coy on WWHL about recent cosmetic enhancements, sources tell Us Weekly Gosselin — who got a tummy tuck in 2007 and breast implants in 2009 — frequently enjoys tanning sessions and even gave herself a dose of Botox injections.
A busy mom tending to her kids as they return to school this fall, the Pennsylvania-based CouponCabin.com blogger admitted to Cohen that she’s not in a relationship — and definitely not dating her bodyguard. “I’m single! Still [and] always,” Gosselin demurred on WWHL, laughing off that reports that she was coupled up with longtime bodyguard Steve Neild.
“Because [in] my job as a single parent to provide for eight kids, my safety is imperative to them,” Gosselin said, justifying Neild’s constant presence. “I’m not going to give out [past horror] stories, but it’s warranted for sure. He keeps them safe.”
Andy asks her what work she’s had done, and she says she lost a bunch of weight. She said “probably 40 pounds, for a start. That was probably 3 days after I had sextuplets. I am probably one of the rare few who de-age.” Rare indeed. Other than her lying about not having any work done, she actually (in my opinion) looks really good. Dontcha think?
