A Cook Book Too! Kate Gosselin Keeps Cashing In

| Filed under: The Gosselins

ap090514013292-kg.jpg

If the upcoming 40 episode season of Jon & Kate Plus Eight isn't enough to fill your Gosselin needs, then fear not, because now they can invade your kitchen as well as your living room.

And Kate Gosselin puts more money in her pocket!

The "struggling" wife and mother has not let the recent downward spiral of her personal life conflict with the business end. It was just announced that come this October, a third book in the Gosselin franchise will be released. This time, it's a cookbook called Love Is in the Mix: Making Meals into Memories and it's filled with recipes to feed a herd of little ones.

While no excerpts have been released, plenty of people are taking time out to slam the book for plagiarism, stating that most of her ideas are recipes found on any soup can or box. And, of course, people also had to throw their two cents in about the author, deeming her unfit to write a cookbook when she "can't cook."

She has to be feeding them something, otherwise those kids would be all dead! And, please, like a woman with a herd of that many kids has time to experiment in the kitchen. No!

But she is no fool. She knows people will buy crap simply because it has her kids' faces on it.

It's called good marketing, bbs!

    No More Wire Hangers!!!!!!!!!

    I wouldn't eat anything I saw her cook on that show. Now that Korean meal Jon made, I'd love the recipes for that.



  3. 3

    Granted she put herself on TV, and you have to take the good w/ the bad… but she is making a lot of money fairly easily by being on TV and writing books. She needs as much as she can get. Just 1 kid is draining on finances. I think people should really quit talking so negatively about celebs and their fams b/c while they did choose to be in the media, they are still real people and when a family is going through issues, all the rude comments and negative publicity can really send someone over the edge.

    blah i cant stanfd her!

    The books title "How to cook like a Sociopathic Controlling Bitch."

    I think the horns are a nice touch!! :D

    Omg what a bitch. She can't even cook. She has people do it for her! She "play" cooks when the camereas are there. But of course she's such a great actress! UGH! And she's probably not even writing it herself she'll trick someone into doing it for her and take a large part of the money only leaving a small amount for the person who helped. It's happened before with the 1st book. She put Jons name on it just to get 2/3rd of th money

    THe poor babies.

    Re: SparklingVanilla – You almost expect her to start shrieking that, don't you?

    Maybe she'll try to get a show on the Food Channel too.



  9. 9

    I've seen her make some cool stuff for the kids to eat. Whether or not they were her very own recipes and ideas is a different story.



  10. 10

    Everyone is sooooo mean to her leave her alone!



  11. 11

    Why is it that women alway's tear down other women? These are the same women I am sure are alway's preaching about "SISTERHOOD". Jodi and Julie and everyone else need to remember no matter how mean she was to her husband that gives him no right to cheat on her physicaly or mentally! I highly doubt that she just became controling and bitchy I am sure she has alway's in some degree been this way did he not know when he married her. Oh and I don't think the camera's were around then! TEAM KATE!



  12. 12

    Alright I get it… She can be annoying and overbearing but she is finding a way to provide for her 8 children in the shitty economy, and she seems to provide for them quite well. If you don't like it then don't buy it/watch it.



  13. 13

    BORING!!! Get them the fuck outta here!



  14. 14

    Besides the big meal that John cooked (in which she bitched and yelled at him the entire time) the only thing I have ever seen her give her kids is like chips, yogurt or apple slices. Never really seen her cook!



  15. 15

    Re: Spindoc – Perfect title…



  16. 16

    will she teach us how to order a pizza?



  17. 17

    Will people please stop watching this disgusting human being's show. And stop buying her shit, she is nothing but a trailer trash fake! those poor kids!



  18. 18

    hey, at least she's trying to do whats best for her kids. if you had her kids you'd probably do the same. it's impossible to be their age and have to provide for those kids given their jobs. at least she's doing something about it and not sitting on her ass getting checks from the government. i know parents that have done that and their kids grew up resenting them because they felt like their parents didn't care enough to provide for them.
    you guys really can't judge her. if you were in her position you'd probably bitch at your husband all the time too.



  19. 19

    she has fugly kankles

    Re: lyndeeloo – Are you serious? This woman charges her "fellow sisters" $20 for an autograph! She needs to be stopped! Team kids!



  21. 21

    Thank you so much for not bashing her and realizing people are blowing the whole thing out of proportion… Your latest Gosselin posts have been right in the middle of the fence and I love it!!!!! Good Job Perez!



  22. 22

    Re: heatherlk628 – Yes I am serious are you that naive to think she is the only one that charges for an autograph? I also am thinking she is not just pocketing her 20 bucks I am going to assume she is spending that on her children or saving it for their future. Those kids are happy and seem to be healthy that can not be faked by 5 year olds and the older two would be very vocal if they were not happy. I love this show and have since it has come out I will continue to watch it and hope they get their shit togther. They also are not the only family right now struggling with marital problems!



  23. 23

    What do you know about having kids.. Perez? Nothing. She may be protrayed as evil and all that but let her do what she has to do to make money. I have twins and work 2 jobs to support them. I couldnt imagine having all that she has. But eventually the show will end and she will still need to suppport all the kids. Good for her for doing something. With 8 kids that will be going to college someday they will need lots of money. Would you rather her be on welfare and killing the economy? I support both Jon and Kate and I think they should be given their privacy. I think that the show only shows a little glimpse into their lives. No one here knows how they really are when the cameras are off. And shame on kates family for taking money to bad talk her all over tv. Talk about being bitter. Who is exploiting who now? Perez please shut up about crap you have no experience about… and never will!!!



  24. 24

    Back off Perez. He's the one out whoring around! He's having an early mid life crisis and your attacking her? Can any of you even imagine having 8 children? Seriously, the woman deserves a little credit. Do you really think they would have financially survived on his salary alone? Be realistic people.



  25. 25

    iznt the whole problem, that she kant hook-up an eggROLL yet?!!!?



  26. 26

    Re: JenistonRe: bitchface4
    She makes 75,000$ per episode, has help that is paid by TLC, & the sextuplets college fund is paid for.
    She's just a money grubbing bitch now. HER TAN IS DISGUSTING.



  27. 27

    please leave this poor woman alone - she got the reality show because she had 8 children and it was a way to support them… i hope her horrible family who is trying to sell her out realizes how mean they are. the kids will appreciate what their mother does for them and how strong she is.



  28. 28

    Re: bitchface4
    You do know that she makes $75,000 per episode? That the sextuplets college fund was put up by the state of Pennsylvania, and that TLC pays for them to have hired help?



  29. 29

    She's lame. Go away money grubbing woman!

    8 Yummy Recipes For Cooking Your Husband's Nuts



  32. 32

    controlling whore. i feel bad for the kids.



  33. 33

    Really a cookbook. Who wants to cook for THAT MANY PEOPLE. ha ha ha



  34. 34

    "But she is no fool. She knows people will buy crap simply because it has her kids' faces on it.

    It's called good marketing, bbs!"

    So you say all these nice things about 'stay together for the kids..or work it out for the kids'…and then you say that..kinda harsh. The fact she just makes money off of really basic ass meals because it has her and her kids in it is pretty sad. She doesn't give a rats ass about anybody else but herself. When you watch the show she talks about it like its already over. pretty sad.



  35. 35

    Why do we care about these people??? And I would rather go with a reliable source like Betty Crocker or Rachel Ray, over some woman that happens to have 8 children. Who gives a fuck about what this chick cooks???



  36. 36

    I have no problem with her making money. With 8 kids, you need to find a way to support them somehow and invest for their future. Do I have a problem with the way she treats her husband, NO! Maybe if Jon had some cajones, he wouldn't get beat up on by his wife.

  37. Roz23 says – reply to this


    37

    People here are so harsh. Imagine you gave birth to eight kids and your husband steps out on you. Rasing kids is so hard. I giver her major credit and if she can provide doing this then more power to her. If you dont like it dont watch the show. Any reason here that Jon is not beign talked about? He is being pathetic, a real man steps up and does what he has to do for his family, not his own selfishness.



  38. 38

    Rachael Ray can't cook either but that bitch has LOADS of books so WHO CARES?



  39. 39

    I need a shirt that says "Team Alexis, Mady, kara…etc…"



  40. 40

    She has 8 children to care for. I think she should milk all this fame for all it's worth.

    Re: lyndeeloo – Yeah!! Alexis was so happy when she begged her daddy not to leave again!! Are you blind??

    What do you know about having kids, Perez? Nothing. She may be portrayed as evil and all that but let her do what she has to do to make money.

  44. 44

    would never buy a book from a scripted on tv family she probably has not really cooked since the tv show started as you all know she has nannies and housekeepers so maybe they should write a book the real kate gosselin. self driven and negletful to her kids since they call her the babysitters name. Where is her friend Beth and her family now?

    Re: ClownsFreakMeOut THIS COMMENT IS DISGUSTING AND SHOULD BE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY! DON'T ALLOW SUCH THING IN YOUR BLOG, PEREZ!



  49. 49

    it's all organic…obviously. if you fools knew anything you'd know that is what she makes..she uses all organic stuff.



  50. 50

    Re: ~~jdsgirl~~ – I have to agree with you. All I've ever seen her put on the kids' plates are finger foods, yogurt containers and peanut butter and "fluff" sandwiches. I've never seen her actually cook say, tacos or lasagna or spaghetti or something like that (probably too messy!) She did cook some soup one time though, maybe that's in the book! Jon cooked his big Korean meal and that was fun to watch. I can't imagine why she is "writing" a cook book!

    So quickly to judge, so what if the kids college is paid for… There are a lot more things kids need I'm glad she isn't getting free housing, food stamps and health care, I work at a low profit clinic and the # of ppl we see working the system is crazy. I'm glad that she is working for her family she's bringing in the bacon cuz that loser can't. Why do ppl always so scared of strong weman? Look at nancy grace she's well known for being mean & holding her own & I love her for it. Coming from a big family I know the struggles that one go thru to take care of their family. Go Kate work it & get ur money for u & ur babies! I would do it with no shame. I'd me like crap if I had to get free stuff from the government huh lazy ass ppl!



  52. 52

    WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH HER GODDAMN HAIR? Pick a style and stick with it, you stupid bitch! This is the kind of hairstyle that rich housewives in Nebraska get because they think it's chic. I defy you to find one "real celebrity" or supermodel in Vogue that has that fucking awful hairdon't. It's the most ridiculous thing since the mullet, and at least that 'do was on millions of heads! This 'don't is just on this one woman with bad, bad taste. Geez! I can't stop staring at it, but it hasn't made me watch her show. A bad hairstyle only has so much pull.



  53. 53

    This whiner is striking while the iron is hot. In five years when these kids get big, no one will give a shit about them. Anyone remember the Dilley's? I didn't think so.



  54. 54

    Oh and you're not trying to make money either with this lame website?…..Why blame Kate for trying to make a few bucks? Who wouldn't throw a cookbook out there if it meant money in the pocket. I'd do it, sounds like a fun project to me.



  55. 55

    She doesn't cook. She has a private chef provided by the show. They just make it look like she cooks.



  56. 56

    I HAVE NEVER SEEN HER MAKE, NOT COOK MORE THAN MACARONI AND CHEESE.



  57. 57

    oh the happy little homemaker. i hope the book fails. she is no more in the kitchen cooking and inventing meals than i am. paleeaze beyatch. cashing in on the kids to support her lifestyle is what she's doing. so, when's the marriage to the bodyguard going to happen?



  58. 58

    would you prefer for her life to fall apart? she's holding it together in the midst of pain, suffering and heartache!



  59. 59

    KATE, LET ME EAT THAT SNATCH!

    I guess "Recipe for Divorce" wasn't as Yummy sounding a title????

    Re: ClownsFreakMeOut – I think he is the one that cheated and what kid in a house with seperated or divorced parents does not miss the parent that is not there?



  62. 62

    That bitch has an organic chef at home! What does she know about cooking? Maybe somebody else is doing the cookbook and bitch will just get a % for putting her name and kid's faces on it

    Jon needs his NUTS removed.

    You are all haters and Misogynist. Who cares if she was bitchy. He married her, he needs to Keep his wanker inside his Pants and Be a MAN! There is no excuse for CHEATING and destroying a FAMILY, especially one with a million Liitle babies!

    JON SUX DONKEY BALLS!



  64. 64

    I'm not a Kate Hater, but…. I wish she could put as much effort into her relationship, as she does her "career" and kids!!!



  65. 65

    Kate's clearly just trying to make some money.. UHhhh can rachel ray cook??? NO!!.. but it doesn't mean she can't sell some tv shows!.. it's all about your audience. PLUS.. people'd feed their kids anything to make their em look as adowable as herss.. turns out hapa is the way to go



  66. 66

    You don't think she cooks? You obviously haven't watched the show. She cooks all the fucking time. Shit, leave the woman alone and stop acting like you know exactly what she's doing and why. She's got enough shit to deal with plus eight kids to tend to while Jon is off fucking around and abandoning his children.



  67. 67

    ugh she is so fake it makes me sick. one of the most greedy and hollow people around right now.



  68. 68

    ::She can be annoying and overbearing but she is finding a way to provide for her 8 children in the shitty economy, and she seems to provide for them quite well.::

    What are you talking about? Anyone defending Kate's actions saying she is just 'providing for her family' is BS. If J & K were concerned about their children's college funds, they wouldn't be buying a new sports car and spending hundreds of dollars on a high end haircut or dining at five star celebrity restaurants when in the big city. As for providing for them, what are those kids getting in exchange for a life they didn't ask for? Ok, fine, they get a few more toys and get to take some trips. Any spoiled child can tell you that NONE OF THAT MATTERS and what does bring happiness in the long term is stability and privacy. Those kids can't go anywhere without being recognized and followed around, in their own homes or anywhere else. That is an AWFUL price tag to pay and one that will screw them up the rest of their lives. There were tons of better options the family could have chosen, it's not like Jon and Kate are the only large family in America, nonetheless large families have parents that actually WORK and set a responsible example for their children. Oh well, guess her kids will just have to get grants and scholarships like EVERY OTHER KID in this country that doesn't have a mommy and daddy to pay for all their needs.



  69. 69

    God what do you want her to do. She has 8 kids and needs to pay for her shit.



  70. 70

    I think Kate is just trying to hold everything together, give her a break, she is with the kids and Jon is off drinking and carrying on! I feel bad for the kids!



  71. 71

    I'm buying it, she feeds her kids healthy food & her kids are not fat. she gets 8 kids to sit & eat! I have 2 that I can barely get to eat 3 meals a day. I need to know how she does it!

    TEAM KATE!!!!



  72. 72

    Slutty Mom of 8!
    TEAM JON!!!!



  73. 73

    Just the title of her books alone is nauseating - like "8 Little Faces' WTF???? How abotu 8 Little Faces I Can Make a Buck Off and Milk Them til They're at least 18." Media and fame/cash whore!!!



  74. 74

    LEAVE HER ALONE…

    Has anyone watched their actual show and seen what an idiot Jon is. He is also screwing some teacher and everyone is hating on Kate. She rules and I hope she will keep strong and come out on top. Eff Jon.



  75. 75

    Whats next? A book on hairstyling? I HATE her fucking hair, and now that I think about it, I think I probably hate her too. Kate, please die!
