Kate Claims Fame Chose Her!

| Filed under: The Gosselins

ap10040804271jb.jpg

Well, we do sort of sympathize - it's not like she's getting jack from her fucktard ex-husband!

Kate Gosselin once again is attempting to justify her ridiculous famewhoring life in response to allegations from Jon that she's an absentee mother!

She says:

"I've got to work harder now than ever because I am a single mom. In my heart I'm always in my kitchen, baking and cooking for my kids, and I'll always be there. It's a struggle to be here [in New York], to be anywhere. The emotion that you see is because I would rather be at home with them. I have to work. I have to provide for them. And it's a struggle that every working mom, especially single moms, go through, and I'm really feeling it now, and it's really hard. If I had 24 hours a day seven days a week with eight kids, it wouldn't be enough time in my book. So, to minus out the working days is really hard. But I make the most of every minute I have with them … When I'm home, we make those little spots of time really big in our memories."

Seriously, though?

Don't act like the world's effing stupid, girlfriend.

If you didn't want a life in the limelight you would step away, and find other ways to support even eight kids! It's not like you're pinching pennies at this point - despite how awful it looks, we know that weave is expen$ive!

But don't worry, we still hate Jon more than you!!

    oh stfu…….no one in central PA likes her, that's probably why she's never home…….on top of that, she's not a single mother, she's a divorced (or separated) one……there's a difference airhead………



  2. 2

    Jon is a saint



  3. 3

    I'm so sick of her calling herself a "single mom." You're a divorced mother of 8 - with a tv show - nannies and a million dollar house. Big difference.



  4. 4

    I am in no way a Kate fan, she made her bed now she is lying in it! but you have to admit at least she is trying to support her litter of kids and she is working which is more than I can say for Jon.



  5. 5

    Find other ways to support her 8 kids out of the limelight? Easier said than done! She's a nurse! She'd have to pay a sitter to watch EIGHT kids! Do you even know how much that costs? Her douchebag ex won't pay her a dime! Even though it's stressful and she's constantly bombarded with bad publicity and name-calling, this "career" gives her an income that nursing would NEVER bring in. Would you rather she sign up for welfare and shun the limelight? I know she isn't Mary Sunshine, but as a former single mom, it's one flipping hard transition to adjust to.



  6. 6

    I could just slap her every time she pulls out the "single mom" card. SHE IS NOT A SINGLE MOM. She is a divorced mother. There is another parent. She gets more money from TLC and all the people who clothe her kids and all of her perks than she could ever hope to get in alimony. What a slap in the fact to all the single mothers out there who give more of themselves to their kids in a day than Kate gives to all of hers combined in a month.

    what she doesnt tell people is that she was never infertile to the point of HAVING to HAVE fertility drugs- she chose to take them bc she wanted twins…she and jon weren't married long enough b4 she started popping clomid etc…..she wanted to multiples always bc she liked the attention it would give her. period. end of story.

    Fame chooses you, but you have to choose it back at a point. You can either relish in the spotlight, or disappear forever.

    She chose the latter, so she shouldn't be complaining about her own damn mistake.



  9. 9

    I read those comments twice and she didn't complain about being in the spotlight. She complained about what all single parents complain about… having to be away from her kids, which isn't preferable and nags at her while she's in NY working. So, what's the problem? Where's the controversy?

    If I could afford to stay home with my daughter everyday/all day, I would. If I was offered to work a few weeks/months and then get to stay home with her all the rest of the time, I also would do that! In a heartbeat. They can afford such a nice lifestyle with her minimal working.

    I don't get what people are complaining about. We weren't in her marriage. It's irrelevant how her personality was in front of a camera or 2 years ago… RIGHT NOW she's doing what she has to do, and it happens to be fun. And on the side she has an idiot ex who doesn't contribute, illogically lives in another state from his kids, and is lawsuit slap-happy.

    Sucks for her. She should make the best of it. And we should… Move on!



  10. 10

    If she wouldn't comment on her status 10 times a day people would leave her and her kids alone, but she obviously doesn't want that. Has she ever heard of saying no comment or declining an interview to hang with her kids?



  11. 11

    Ok seriously you guys…Kate is trying her best to care for her 8 children. If you were in her position you would probably do anything to care for your children too. No one can say anything about her unless they have just as many kids. Stop hating on her for just trying to provide for her family. And as for her hair, she is trying to make it more likeable and STILL people give her crap for it. They gave her crap for her short do and now this one is still not good enough….god just leave the woman alone.



  12. 12

    Re: April 20th – As a single mother speaking here who is neither divorced nor separated, I'm happy to vouch that Kate is also a single mother and you in fact are a moron. WTF do you think "single" and "mother" mean?



  13. 13

    She makes it sound like she's the onlymother in the entire world who has to work.



  14. 14

    Perez, do you know how much it costs to raise one child, let alone 8. And it doesn't seem that dad is a good candidate to share that load. Get real, life is expensive. If she can cash in now, she'd be a fool not to.



  15. 15

    She isn't a single mom. She is an abusive ex-wife who's husband divorced her because of her behavior. She made the decision to have the 6 embryos implanted and had reached out to TV networks to pitch a show before they were even delivered. She had ALWAYS been a fame whore.



  16. 16

    there is not one HONEST women out there who would rather work 60 hours for 50k than 3 days a week for 500k….give me a break , talk about full of shit sanctamonious jealous
    baffoons……any one in their right mind would chose more money and less time away from the kids as Kate has. As a working mom with a supposedly great job with travel I can tell you exactly how many beautiful hotels I have cried at in my room missing my kids.
    Every single one of them……..



  17. 17

    I do feel for her. Any job that she undertakes @this point in her life is going to be public,even nursing. And let's face it y'all,she and her kids have become accostomed to a "certain lifestyle" so she is not giving that up. Nursing is a good job for maybe 2-3 kids as a single mom,but not 8!



  18. 18

    She works hard for the money…. sure…….not that whore…………She is a white trash…. She got no grace at all… I can't wait to see her out of DWS !



  19. 19

    last I checked, Kate was SINGLE and a MOM thus making her a SINGLE MOM. Following the logic of many here, had Jon died, she would not be a single mom either she would be a WIDOWED MOM.

    that said, given the fact that she has been in the limelight, the transition back to her profession (nursing - working in the public sector) would be virtually impossible because who would hire her? She is providing for her kids like any other working mother in the entertainment industry… from A list to Z list and all the non-celebrities in between.



  20. 20

    Re: PENNSYLVANIA GIRL – , are you a single mom then? If you are, am I supposed to assume you live in poverty?

    Divorced mom still means single mom.
    And I wasn't aware there was a pay cap on the single mom label.

    If she had been widowed (i.e., Jon kicked the bucket) would you still roll your eyes when she talked about being a single mom?



  21. 21

    A couple of items - Single Mother … technically … but realistically it doesn't matter. The father, a douche, is still in the picture.

    There are plenty of bi coastal celebs (yeah she is a reality celeb) that use nannies to care while they're working.

    I'm not trying to defend Kate, however Jon has to realize that there is a celeb factor to play here and Kate has to realize she's not a regular mom !



  22. 22

    i'm on team jon. he's a douche… but she's a total bitch and i can't stand her at all.



  23. 23

    Barf! She needs to quit her whining and at least enjoy the time she has on DWTS, which hopefully wont be for very long. She has opportunities to change her life for the better but she always seems to dwell on the negative.



  24. 24

    oh all you go fuck yerself! do any of you have kids??? and she's has addapted to that life style, and so have her kids, with the nanny's and tv shows and big money! to take that away from Kate and the kids would be not only devastating on her but also her kids. She is a single mom. Being in the public and being famous is a JOB you jealous fucktards!!!!! and by the looks of it it's a damn hard one!!!!this website is sure proof of that. And what about all them famous people killing themselves??? it's because of the shit you have to live up to as a famous person. Because it can be so mentally draining. Give Kate a break, none of you know her personally do you? really think about someone you actually don't like, like a compulsive liar you know, maybe a in-law or one of them competitive bitches who's always buying what you buy and doing their hair like yours to one up you NS Maybe look better in it…. before you say you hate someone or dislike them really think about what it means to really dilike someone.



  25. 25

    Are you that far removed now Perez from what NORMAL people make for a living? Think back. Provide for EIGHT kids with no help from the father? Not only that, but that show put them in a place where it takes a lot more to support the house, etc. THAT should be dropped, perhaps, the lifestyle, but I was a single (oh, EXCUSE me Elilan, 'divorced') mom of ONE child, and it is such a stressor to want to do right by them. EIGHT? Give me a break Perez. Not a fan of hers, but KNOW what parenting costs.



  26. 26

    Re: maldawg17 – … I cannot agree enough.

    I'm not getting why she's critiqued so harshly. No one bitches about Elizabeth Baby Machine Hasselbeck being away from her kids to work. Or Kelly Ripa. Or a hundred other spotlight hungry mommies. So what even if she IS courting the media… If I saw even coverage of other women who do the same, maybe I'd defend her less.



  27. 27

    Don't be a dick Perez… yes she could go work at a regular job but do you really think any amount of money she'd earn would be enough to support her children and the lifestyle they're living? It's not easy to go from making tons of money and living in a gorgeous big house, providing everything your children need to suddenly not making anywhere near that amount of money. She doesn't want to do that to her children and feels that the best way to continue maintaining their lifestyle is through the fame she already has. So shut up. I think Kate's a great mom.



  28. 28

    I think she IS a fish out of water..she IS a mother and she is smart enough (and lucky enough to have the opportunity) to take advantage of the fame to make some money..this could all fade at any time and she is wise to take the money while she can.



  29. 29

    Re: nezzie – I know. Drives me nuts.



  30. 30

    Re: ElilanRe: Spindoc – Thank you - it's about time someone reminded America of this teensy fact!!



  31. 31

    She's not the one cooking the meals, bitch hired a private chef to cook and freeze meals for her family whilst she's out "slaving" away. Her reality stints and 3 books didn't make enough money yet? Maybe if she took a break from the fake-baking, expensive wardrobes, and pricey beautifying (though it does take a lot to cover up that fugly) she wouldn't have to "work" so hard.



  32. 32

    According to Wikipedia the definition of Single Parent is a parent who cares for one or more children without the assistance of the other biological parent in the home. I would say she qualifies. And how the hell is she supposed to go back to nursing and take care of 8 kids? Any person would take advantage of the opportunities she has if they could.



  33. 33

    Why doesn't she just go back to nursing? Nurses are in high demand and the pay is excellent. If she is smart, and wisely investing the money's she's earned so far from her various famewhoring expeditions, there is no reason why she should not be able to support her family on a nurse's salary. Plus - she can work a flexible schedule, allowing her more time w the kids (work 3, 12-hour shifts a week instead of 5, 8-hour shifts for example.
    C'mon Kate - there are plenty of decent hospitals in Berks, Lancaster and/or Lehigh County PA that are within an hour's drive of your home. Sell your million dollar home, get something more modest, and start living life like the rest of the world.



  34. 34

    Re: alihalley – I pity your child being they have such an ignorant, immature parent. Unfortunately, they'll probably turn out the same way you did……Kate's not a single mother and you're the moron for believing she is…….



  35. 35

    Re: alihalley – #21 Ali cut me a break. Actually, if Jon had, as you so eloquently put it "kicked the bucket" her children would be in line for monthly Social Security checks and Kate would have a year of survivors benefits for each one of her laboratory created spawn. She is a divorced woman, the children have a father. She does not have the physical task of raising those children alone. Hell, she doesn't even raise them when she's at home. My status is none of your business, but I assure you I work hard and support not only myself. Your status, on the other hand is obviously that of a "single mother" meaning you are raising your spawn alone. Judging by all of your bitter comments, seems like it kind of sticks in your craw. Well, you know what they say about … you made your bed, now lie in it.

    She looks like she's wearing a cheap wig. And she looks fatter. Please, please, please, just go away, Kate.



  37. 37

    she could easily sell her mansion, move to kansas, get a job at a hospital working nights and be home during the day with her kids. Nurses are in demand. She's full of SHIT. She would not be able to afford her extensions, plastic surgeries, teeth veneers, etc. on a nurse's salary.



  38. 38

    Re: DebDebs – couldnt agree more . Re: pattid



  39. 39

    Re: penneyx3
    Then, Penny she shouldn't bitch about the choice SHE made and the unwanted attention from the paps. She has made her bed, and now she must lie in it. She makes it sound like she has no other alternatives.

    She can make a decent living as a nurse and she should have plenty of money socked away from J+K+8 and DWTS.



  40. 40

    My Mother raised us with no problem. No limelight. And she never paid 7k for atrocious hair extensions. Or deny us water. KG is a self righteous narcissist.



  41. 41

    why are they even famous? the gosslins are always on this website and i just roll right through it.
    i seriously couldn't give two shits about it.



  42. 42

    As a single mom, yes I have struggled, even with one child. Sure, it would be nice to make a pile of $$ and not work so hard. But a GOOD mom puts her kids first - they only have one childhood, and it is your job to be BOTH parents to them. The Gosselin kids have NO parents - cool! new reality show - "AFU Kids of Reality Shows"!!



  43. 43

    Re: Karlitosway – @25 - " none of you know her personally do you?" - I don't personally know her but I know many ppl that do and no one likes her. She's a complete bitch who always treated her husband like crap. He's also a complete prick who thought his shit didn't stink once he got the show. Kate is a prime suspect for ppl to dislike based on her personalilty, not her mothering skills (or lack thereof) or hear-say stories……..



  44. 44

    Re: alihalley – Who's the moron here? A SINGLE mom solely supports her children with no external and especially financial assistance from a former husband/father. A DIVORCED mom gets child support, sometimes spousal support, and has every other weekend off when the kids are with the other parent. Wake up oh naive one.

    Kate is a famewhoring piece of sh*t



  45. 45

    I gotta say that the short hair was alil freaky and got old ..but this hair looks ridiculous on her!! She needs the short hair back!



  46. 46

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – Agreed. I'm so sick of these people buying into Kate's bullshit about having to work.Sell the million dollar house, stay home and raise that litter yourself and get rid of those horrible extensions. Damn people are gullible!!



  47. 47

    How stupid is this woman? How can she NOT know that to be a good mom; you have to spend times with your kids. The kids won't be happier if she is not there but give them all the cash in the world. She is just a fame ho** like a lot of these fake celebrities. Kids need their parents, not their $. Shame on you Kate Gosselin for blaming this on your kids.



  48. 48

    Re: alihalley – Kelly Ripa lives in the city where she works. She takes her kids to school. She's home every night. Your arguments do not hold water. Not one drop.



  49. 49

    she is an extreme narcissist and her fake hair looks like a bad 1970's dolly parton wig. team Jon and kids.



  50. 50

    Kate Gosselin is not a single mother. This term means a mother who is parenting her children on her own, without a father involved in childcare or finances. . These children have a father, and he gives Kate $21,000 per month! This is not a single mother!



  51. 51

    Re: April 20th – re:#44 I know people who know her as well. Like the reporters from the local paper where her lab experiment took place, and all have confirmed exactly what you've said.

    The woman is satan incarnate.



  52. 52

    Re: tania7 TANIA HONEY YOU'RE WRONG. IM NOT SAYING HE'S A SAINT BECASUE HE'S A TOP NOTCH JERK, BUT KATE HAS THE ASSISTANCE OF THE OTHER BIOLOGICAL PARENT IN THE HOME WHENEVER HE HAS VISITATION. SO YOU BETTER GO BACK TO WIKI AND RETHINK THAT. KATE HAS SUCH A BLACK HEART THAT SHE WOULDNT LET THEIR FATHER BE WITH THEM WHILE SHE GALLIVANTS ALL OVER THE PLACE FOR ADORATION. A GOOD MOTHER PUTS NOTHING BEFORE HER CHILDREN. KATE PUTS KATE BEFORE EVERYTHING. SHE IS NOT A SINGLE PARENT AND SHE'S NOT EVEN A DECENT PARENT



  53. 53

    For all those people that are saying that "single" plus "mom" equals "single mom", you're wrong. Just because she has no man in her life, that doesn't mean that her children don't have a father. How come nobody is calling Jon a single dad then? What if Kate finds a boyfriend, will people call her a dating mom? If she marries, and is no longer dubbed a single mom, that is quite insulting to the children's father because it implies that her new husband is the father to these children (meanwhile he's been there the whole time).

  54. mayi says – reply to this


    54

    I think she enjoys fame, but she also knows that she has no other choice. She's right, she is a single mom with a douche ex-husband, which means she has to work harder to provide for their kids. It's all about the money: we know, she knows, everyone knows. Having gigs like that in the medias is probably the way she earn the most money. There is no way she can provide for 8 kids on a nurse's income.



  55. 55

    it's funny, she says she needs to support children, but firstly there is absolutely no way jon gosselin will get away with paying nothing towards their eight kids, and also she is also currently registered as a registered nurse, and didn't she just renew her registration to work in america? how about doing that for a career to support your kids, although i can't imagine anyone wanting her to take care of them.



  56. 56

    Re: Karlitosway – You should learn to spell.



  57. 57

    Fuck you Perez and fuck all of you guys who slam her. AGAIN, IF YOU HAD 8 MOUTHS TO FEED, WOULD YOU GET A REGULAR JOB OR WOULD YOU TAKE A JOB THAT GIVES YOU FAME AND SOOO MUCH MORE MONEY???? I think most if not all would take fame. And in her case, fame comes with judgemental assholes like you guys, so she has to live with it. I agree that sh should not whine about the hate. If I were her, i would tell you all to go fuck yourselves, i got the fame and am making the money, so fuck you.. Now, if she was this diva asshole like Perez and some of you claim, why has she not been caught on camera acting like a diva and telling you all to fuck yourselves?? She is a fish out of water. She is trying to stay afloat in this life in order to make big bucks.. And before another idiot says it again on here like before, she had to have in vitro because she had cyst that was making it impossible for her to have kids. She and most especially Jon did not want a 3rd child at first, but they went with it and came out with 6. No one can predict how many eggs will take. Its a crapshoot. they did not plan on have 6 kids for tv. Also, Discovery was the channel that approached them to do specials, they agreed. Later, TLC approached them for a show.. Again, how many of you nsaty muther fuckers would turn down making 75k an episode if approached? All of you.. Do not lie..

    Re: April 20th – April, did you fall out of your mamas twat in the backwoods of Kentucky and hit your head against her 12 gallon moonshine?? You are a fucking twat headed dumbass, How is Kate not a single mom?? She has no husband or boyfriend, girlfriend so she is single, and oh, she is a mom of 8 hence, "Single mom".. Oh, so you say she is not because she has nannys taking careof her kids.. So, she is a single mom who is working and making enough money to pay for those nannys… SINGLE MOM you dimwitted batshit crazy ass..



  60. 60

    that shitious wig looks ridiculous on her! in my opinion these 2 morons implanted all those eggs on purpose and had $ in their eyes long before the brood was born I think they have pimped these kids out long enough now it's time for both of these nitwits to go AWAY and as far as her show who the hell is going to take advice from her.



  61. 61

    Re: alihalley – Alihalley, I am floored by this idiots who now say Kate is not a single mom.. I did notknow you cannot call yourself single mom if you make x amount of money and have x amount of fame.. That is news to me. I thouhgt single mom meant you are not married nor have a relationship, and a mom, hence the phrase single mom.. Oh wait, single mom has nannys so she cannot be single mom.. So what do we call her? Nanny mom?? LOL.. Ali, thank you for being on here. In a world of idiotic thinking morons who dictate what life should be life according to their twisted ways, it's nice to have a sane, intelligent person to agree with..



  62. 62

    She is such a stupid bitch! She is now rewriting history. She says that Jon got rid of the dogs….when Jon left she said she was forced to get rid of the dogs, now she has them back. Jon is right, she is not home with the kids, he should be with them. When they split, Kate said they would split time with the kids, when she was gone for work, Jon would be there. Remember the house was the kids home, the parents would share it. remember the Show was Jon and Kate plus 8, why does she get all the money. Any other divorce, the non working parent would be getting spousel support. If Jon is not working he should be getting support. kate and her lawyers fucked him out of a job, they trash him and spread lies about him. He is not the one who chose the show, Kate said when the time came that one person in the family was done the show was over. When Jon said enough, she trashed him on the last show of last season. He said, I"I don't want to come back". She said "we'll be back" She did not want to give up the limelight. Kate even has the kids being bussed 45 minutes to school everyday. She is a controlling whining bitch. She has alienated her whole family, including her minister Father and and Mom. She will drive her children away with her hatred next.
    A single parent is a parent who has no other parent to help her raise children. She has that, but chooses to be the marter.



  63. 63

    that shitious wig looks ridiculous on her! in my opinion these 2 morons implanted all those eggs on purpose and had $$ in their eyes long before the brood was born I think they have pimped these kids out long enough now it's time for both of these nitwits to go AWAY and as far as her show who the hell is going to take advice from her look at what a wonderful job she has done so far!!

  66. 66

    I HATE HER MORE THAN JON!! SHE IS A PATHETIC LIAR!! HEY MARIO HOW COME YOU DON'T REPORT THAT A CONGRESSMAN IS HAVING A MEETING IN PA TOMORROW, APRIL 14 ON THESE TWO PARENTS & TLC ABOUT USING THEIR KIDS ON TV AND ARE INVESTIGATING IF THEIR RIGHTS WERE VIOLATED, HOW COME YOU DON'T REPORT THAT MARIO. YOU JUST REPORT THE SAME STUFF LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!!! HEY WHY DON'T YOU READ HER NEW LOVE LETTER BOOK TO HER KIDS AND TELL ME YOU STILL LOVE HER BETTER



  67. 67

    Re: Rican31 – pipe down krazie……..
    *
    Single-parent (also lone parent and sole parent) is a parent who cares for one or more children without the assistance of another parent in the home
    *
    Jon is present in his children's lives and helps (Kate) support them
    *
    fyi - your attacks and thoughtless ways of arguing are immature and attention seeking…….

    Didn't she used to be a nurse? Cut the bull shit of saying you have to make a living… blah blah blah… she is a fame whore and if I see her ass on the Today show commenting about her so called "private life and 8 kids" I'm going to throw my remote at the T.V. If she gave a shit about those kids she would do what every working hard mother would do. Find a job that doesn't take you away from your kids as much. Go back to being a nurse at least you'd be admired more for what you do.



  69. 69

    Oh BOO the fuck HOO. should have thought of that before adding 8 more people to the population. No pity here.



  70. 70

    fact of life, is you cant stay with our kids twenty four seven, and those who cry because of that need to toughen(sp) up. its not like you won't get to see them the next day. shes a nurse. and last time i checked they get a good pay check. if she wants to be in the lime light, fine thats her choice but dont fucking complain and whine about it



  71. 71

    To all, i wanted to post this regarding the lies people tell about kate getting pregnant with 6 kids on purpose and calling TLC to get a show. ALL LIES.. This is what happens when you get bat shit crazy people who make shit up and pass it on to add fuel to the fire.

    Kate had a problem with getting pregnant. She had cyst issue so she moved forward with in vitro. She had twins. She wanted a 3 child, Jon did not at first, but they went ahead, and ended up with 6. Anyone who know the process of in vitro know that at times, if you put in one emryo or egg, that may not take. So, you hae to go back, pay tons f money to get in vitro again. So you pay thousands for each insemination. So some parents go and have several, almost to the max I think of 8, so that 1 or two might take. In rare cases, all take. This is what happened to Kate. There is no way on gods green earth she or the doctor could have or would have known all would take. No way. So once it took, she nor the doctors had any way of knowing if all would survive. This is why they got all of th media attention because spetuplets are a rarity. especially when they all survive. Very, very rare. SO this is why when they did arrive, and survive, they got all of the media attention. It was a miracle. Now, their local media pounced and even helped to get their home remodled to accomodate their new big family. As they were being shown on local programming, ratings went through the roof.

    Part 2
    Discovry channel picked up on this and shot a few specials on them. They also experienced high ratings boost because of this. TLC swooped in and offered them a show, and shazam, ratings winner. So, if we are to believe soem of the poster here who say she planned the pregnancy to get a show, it would mean she had to know for certain all eggs would take, she figured local news would come and shoot a show and she knew they would get high ratings. She also knew they could get a show on Discovery and the show would be a ratings winner. She also knew TLC would swoop in, and yet again, she knew millions of americans would watch and become a ratings winner. If we are to believe that, Kate should get a show on TLC, Discovery, SCi Fi and ABC called Kate The Great, ESP master..LOL… People, when reading some of these peoples bullshit, Marios included, use logic. How many storys has Mario posted only to see it come back as false the next day?? I lost count… Use your own mind folks..

    Re: April 20th – April, you starrted this off by attacking, so before you jdge, look at your dumbass self in the mirror first.. Attention seeking??? LMAO… no one here knows me so why would I care about getting attention?? GO FUCK YOURSELF space cadet..



  74. 74

    Nursing has long and worse hours and pays much less. Kate is good TV so why do you attack her for making the money she needs to support 8 kids and herself? Marie Osmond had 8 kids, the DWTS,no one said a word. Marie has a Vegas show,doll business, jewelry and accessories business, has written books, and is single. Why do you attack Kate?

    If she wants to be home with her kids so badly, why the hell doesn't she Skype her interviews from home?? The woman thinks we are idiots.

    Re: PENNSYLVANIA GIRL – She's a single mom. I was your definition of a single mom, but a single mom is a single mom…some have more support than others but it's still hard. If you're a single mom with a fat alimony check and/or comfy cozy divorce settlement, then you're just divorced! lol

    Perez - you are not a mom SO YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO JUDGE HER. She is a working mom who has to support EIGHT kids. She can't just go be a nurse again (and ABSOLUTELY have to work more hours doing that) and expect to support EIGHT kids. She can make quick, easy money with this fame and spend TONS more time with her kids then I can. I have to work 50 hours a week doing graphics for TV shows to make decent money to support my kids. SHE IS DOING WHAT'S BEST FOR HER KIDS AT THIS POINT. She couldn't have predicted the crazy turn her little TV show was going to take. She's here now and she's got a pretty good gig making a healthy paycheck for her large family. SERIOUSLY - STOP!

    Child services should just take these kids away already. Anybody else who did this crap would lose their kids.

    Re: pattid – Exactly.. When she is hom, and because she has sole or primary custody, she is a singl mom raising her children. With or without help from nanys.. And, I do not or did not see her travelling around the country taking pics with bikini clad men in vegas or have a couple of relationships under her belt. Jon, has been filmed, pictured with his what, three girlfriends. Partying up a storm and even went as far as to get an apartment in New York, very far away from his kids. Why not in the same town. Again, if Kate was a task master bitch to her husband, it was because he was and is this big, teenage kid she had to control in order to keep it all together. Had Kate not kept Jon in check, I bet they would have been broke from him buying "toys", and the kids and Kate would have been screwed royally. I've seen this so many times. Always ends in divorce. Men stay in teen years no matter how old or how many kids they have. Wife assumes the roleof dad, mom, husband and wife.. So they get hard and talk to the husband like a child. Had no cameras been on them, marriage might have lasted longer because Jon could live with kate being a mommy to him, but once on TV, his friends and maybe some of the bimbos he met along the way probably told him he was being treated so badly and that she is mean to him, thereby encouraging him to become independent.. hence the earring.. He's acting like a teenager..



  82. 82

    Kate's abrasive personality definitely makes her hard to love. But really, she and Jon had 8 kids, while she was a nurse and he was an IT guy. There is no way they could've made ends meet without the TLC show, just no way. Then they buy a large house when things are going well, only for her husband to leave and kill the show, the main source of income. With Jon jobless and unwilling/unable to contribute, how else is Kate really supposed to provide her kids with what they need, and pay the mortgage on that new house? Everyone says she needs to stop complaining about fame, but really, what other job is out there that she is qualified for that would feed, clothe, and pay for her EIGHT kids' educations? College is 40-50 grand a year. Times four years. Times eight kids. At the same time. What kind of a mother would she be if she had an opportunity to give her kids these opportunities, and didn't? Because public appearances are her livelihood, it she has to spend $$ on the way she looks. Like I said, she's certainly abrasive, but I do think she is simply doing what she needs to do to keep herself and her kids afloat.



  83. 83

    She deserves a metal and money for putting up with that pig of an ex husband. At least she is out making money for the family. Her ex is out crying about Her having all the breaks. Geez, he's another cry baby.

    Re: LetttyB

    Well then, I stand corrected. I don't know them personally. I just make assumptions based on what I read in the press. But you seem to know a lot more about it than I do, so my apologies.

    Re: tania7 – Tania, no matter what anyone here says, not one person on this forum knows them, Kate and Jon, personally. Everything you read on Perez's site, as well as what is posted here, is purely rumors, conspiracy and personal feelings. Nothing factual. On here, opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.

    Re: pattid – I hope to tell you but my sister is a nurse who makes great money and she has 5 kids… so don't tell me she can't support kids on a nurses income. You can you just have to cut back on spending with things that you really don't need like expensive hair extensions, tanning, nails and kids toys and clothes that are ridiculous priced. And yes her ex-DB doesn't pay her a dime because he pays child support… meaning he provides for his kids. On that end he is a pretty good person because most men don't even do that. I think they are equally DB's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: alihalley – Actually she is right in a way… a single mother is a woman who takes care of a child(s) on her own without any help from a husband or bf the men want no part in there lives. To me I consider her a divorce mother of 8 because her children still have a father in there lives that pays child support but just doesn't live with them full time.

    this whole 'article' was taken from the 'today' show interview that was on today. 2nd part, tomorrow. It was pre taped. Kate is also going to be on fox and friends tomorrow. I don't know if that was taped or not. NOW, for the skype comment, WHY? do you know where she lives? can you google? The woman lives in reading PA. the today show is in NYC. The interview was taped. Probably after Meredith did the show. So, Kate sees the kids off to school and is driven or drives to the city. Reading is 2 hours away from NYC. TWO HOURS. Do an hour interview and go home. The kids will not even know she is gone. Same thing with fox and friends. Depending on what time she is on. Maybe, just maybe, she will have to leave early. She is going to be on Wednesday, so maybe she is coming straight from the airport and then will go home. A bunch of you are acting like NYC is a day's drive and a few days drive from her home. AND WHERE IDIOT MARIO GOT THAT TITLE, WHO THE HELL KNOWS. BUT HE IS BEING HIS NORMAL IDIOT SELF AGAIN. AND A BUNCH OF YOU FOLLOW, LIKE A BUNCH OF ZOMBIES

    Aw, Kate. I'm sure those long trips to the tanning bed during dance rehearsal are just excruciating. Granted, raising 8 kids is expensive, especially with a douchebag ex-husband who's too concerned with chasing barely-legal ass to care. But if you're gonna do all this for your kids, then actually DO your job rather than rake in all the celebrity perks and bitch to the press about how hard your life is.



  94. 94

    Here's something to think about. Kate made her own fate. It's not like she got pregnant and the egg divided itself in six. She chose to have these children. Shit happens. If you followed the show from the beginning when things were still semi-real, you saw that they both worked but Jon took care of everything because unfortunately Jon, douche, loser, waste that he is, is a very good parent to those children. Kate usually had better things to do. Still does. My point is. She CHOSE to have those children. I guess she's lucky she can support them on TLC's dime and her 15 minutes. I wouldn't sacrifice a minute with my children but if I could have 15 minutes that wouldn't harm them I'd take it too.

    Re: Rican31 YOU'RE SO FUCKING ANNOYING WITH ALL YOUR DRIVEL. YOU'RE SO FUCKING STUPID. THE ONLY PERSON WHO GIVES A SHIT WHAT YOU HAVE TO COMMENT ON IS YOU AND YOU'RE ALWAYS WRONG.



  96. 96

    Kate is such a bunch of BS! She could do a lot of things from home to support them. (like write books) She doesn't have to live in such a huge house either. The public who buys it all is pretty stupid. Her constant "I'm a victim" crocodile tears are pathetic! It's also pathetic to hide behind the excuse of her kids. It's isulting to the real working Moms out there. Jon and Kate had those kids long before ever getting a glimpse of the high life. They had every intention of raising them the old fashioned way. I'm sick of her and her crappy excuses. She's a fame addicted narcissist who is putting HERSELF before her kids!



  97. 97

    Re: mayi – Then maybe she shouldn't have had the children in the first place if she couldn't afford it! Why do so many assume Jon pays nothing? It's crap. His monthly income/payments to her alone would support them. Just not in the manner Kate is now accustomed to. Wake up people! She's a fake!



  98. 98

    Correct me if I am wrong but isnt she getting $20,000 a month in child support????? She cant provide for 8 kids on 20 grand a month? Maybe she should downsize her house & spending!

    Re: PAH – First off, if you wont do it I was not speaking for you. i was speaking for those who would you idiot asshole. And you do not fool anyone lying sack of shit. If offered a million a year to allow filming of you and your kids for tv, you would take t as anyone else would. Being on an entertainment site like this tells me you would in a heartbeat, so go peddle your bullshit elsewhere. Got no time to help you figure out your life. Pay a real doc to help you with that liar..



  100. 100

    Re: PAH – Oh, so because your supposed sister who is supposedly a nurse supposedly has 5 kids and is supposedly making great money. Honey, yes she can. Now, does she have a husband?? You did not answer that or mention that. I know what nurses make, from the new ones to the ones who have many years. I come from a family of nurses. How I know your story is filled with lies is because you do not mention some important stuff like days worked, amount and if married or not, and you make a very open statement by saying makes great money. You need to watch what you say or post, how you say it or post it gives people like me the info we need to detrmine is someone is being truthful or lying. You are lying.. And even if she were making it work, again, who the fuck are you to dictate to kate as to what knd of job she can have?? Because she is complaining about ugly asses like you who slam her but dont know her, you hate on her?? Again, liar. Had your statement been true, it would have been the first comment to come from you. You needed to read the other comments to invent a story so as to make your point out to be true above others.. Stupid trick..
