No surprise here!
Reports suggest the Mama Kate Gosselin, star of Jon and Kate Plus 8
More Months Of Tabloid Stories, hits the bottle to cope with having 8 children.
A former employee confesses that they saw the domesticated hair queen enjoy a bottle of wine all by her lonesome once the kiddies went off to bed several times a week. Her husband, Jon Gosselin, did not join on the drunky fun.
"Jon didn't usually drink with her, and he didn't seem pleased with it," says the ex-staffer. "He'd roll his eyes and tell Kate to put the wine down. She'd answer, 'Screw you. I'll do what I want.' Her frustration with the kids seemed to be taking a toll, and drinking was her outlet."
And, as per usual, along with allegations of being a wino, the source also suggests that Kate is "short-fused and demanding". Yes, this we already knew, but the source confesses that her temper sometimes led to violent punishments with the children: "When one of the boys closed a door on another one once, Kate got in their faces and yelled, 'You tell me the truth about what happened!' The children just stood there, terrified. Then she dragged one of the boys into the bathroom and spanked him five or six times with a large plastic mixing spoon. You could hear Kate forcefully whacking the child and the child screaming at the top of his lungs. People told me it happened more than once, but it was off-camera because Kate didn't want it in the show."
Well, of course she didn't want to show it! Then every parental activist group would be on her ass, and perhaps they should be.
The scenario sure fits for a suburban stay-at-home Mom from hell, but we're not sure if we buy it.
