Single Mother Of Eight Buys Audi TT Sports Car

| Filed under: The Gosselins


So, do the kids have to walk everywhere now or…

Kate Gosselin was spotted out and about her Pennsylvania neighborhood this week running errands in a pretty fast ride - a Audi TT sports car, to be exact.

This baby's got everything: speed, style, sophistication, but only enough room for 1/8 of her brood!

So what's with the wheels? Can she justify such a car when she's got kids at home to feed and no more reality show to bank roll the food bills? Considering this quote she gave People Magazine, we're thinking no:

"People think we made gazillions of dollars, and we didn't. After the show was canceled, I said, 'I'll go back to my old nursing job.' If nothing comes up I'll do it. But the scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn't let me continue to provide well for eight kids essentially on my own. When you think about it that way, it gets really scary."

Guess not scary enough to stop you from buying such an expensive car!

We have no doubt that you'll land on your feet somehow, Kate, but you have to accept your limits. You're not making bank anymore. Those kids are growing and need clothes, shoes, food, college educations…

Time to stop living in the past and start thinking about the future.

    Kate deserves the new car after everything she did for those thankless children. She busted her ass getting spray tans, hair extensions, plastic surgery, bikini shopping, vacationing, promoting her book, trashing Jon and dancing with the stars.

  2. 2

    I cant stand the lady, but come on! Do you expect her to drive a bus when all 8 kids are in school? I can imagine how horrible the giant van does on gas. Who cares what shes driving.

  3. 3

    thank god u never been around kids perez, or at least i hope so
    they are the most annoying things in the world!!!!
    I know kate srsly needs a break from all those leeches.
    1 kid is enuf but 8?

  4. 4

    I guess it was only okay when Jon blew through piles of money. Jon probably can't even afford the support payments he would have to make on 8 children. Kate may be a bit of a fame whore but we kept watching them. We wanted more of them. Now they got cancelled and everyone is slamming them. She needs to come back to reality, and I am sure that won't be easy, once you have had a taste of the good life. Why wouldn't she want that.

    Re: poodlewithamohawk – Heehee. Don't forget her favorite activity - performing for the cameras - she calls it 'work'.

  6. 6

    Katie… got a new car, lost her show Hey thats life! Up side to this is the kids will probably be spending more time with Dad - Hope they learn how to get dirty and spit like normal kids.

  7. 7

    I am not a Kate fan but who knows maybe she had ordered this car and already paid for it before the show was cancelled. And if she does go back to nursing she can't drive the bus to work. Who knows. But if you want her out of the spotlight stop reporting about her. Just a suggestion.

  8. 8

    wow !! you know,all the power to her!!
    without her payday,that women doesnt stand a chance of any man going in without THE MONEY she made her bed now lie in it…..LOL,,,J AND K sold out their family..for what!!!

  9. 9

    Reality is going to be a tough wake up for this one. Dumb greedy and self-centered bout sums her up. That car says a lot about her priorities.

  10. 10

    What a disgusting fucking attention whore. She has changed SO much!! it's all about her. Now she screams and mistreats the kids. there's no gentleness or love anymore. Plus it's so obvious she's giving bg's to her BG.

  11. 11

    Really, Perez? Really? Really. I mean, come on… should the world's greatest attention whore drive around in a minivan all day? Me thinks not. By the way, she's hot!

  12. 12

    Whatever keeps her away from those kids I am all for! Those poor kids are destined for metel braclets.

    There are cheaper cars she could have bought if what she wanted was to save gas while the kids are at school. She is as a lousy mother. I am afraid of what will happen to the kids now that she can't cash from them and she has to provide for them now. She clearly hates them :(

  14. cknee says – reply to this


    let HER live HER life!

  15. 15

    $40 grand on a car that only she can fit in. Nice. That sure sounds like someone "Freaking Out" "Big Time" over providing for the kids in the lifestyle to which they are accustomed. Or perhaps, judging by the car anyway, its HER lifestyle that she has become accustomed to. Kids adapt and adapt well so saying that she wants to continue drawing the big bucks for "them" is questionable at best.

  16. 16

    As much as I dislike Kate, she didn't go way off the deep end w/ this one. Perez conveniently forgot to mention that she bought it USED, BEFORE the show was canceled.

  17. 17

    Audi TTs are awesome! I have one! I'm sure she has another car to transport the kids in. She doesn't need to have the kids with her 24/7.

  18. 18

    nice. her show gets cancelled and shes buys a car. real responsible of her. i cant wait for reality to kick her in the ass

  19. Drita says – reply to this


    Wow that woman is psycho. She has created several profiles to comment on this article and justify her spending the kids money on her. Thise kids have no chance :S

  20. 20

    This isn't news. What's news is that the top "earning" corporations are raking in tax breaks. You should start reporting on CEOs making more than a company's total tax liability - it happens all the time. That's the TRUE outrage. Kate isn't even on government assistance - and even if she was, it would be a drop in the bucket compared to what Corporate America's thieves take from the American people - all while asking us to pay our "fair share!"

  21. Drita says – reply to this


    I meant " these". typo :P

  22. 22

    I don't hate on her. She is Capable Kate, and I bet she got a helluva deal on it. Have you seen lease rates? Hell, I could afford it!

  23. 23


  24. 24

    Good luck finding a man!
    And Jon, good luck finding a women.

    1 kid is enough baby momma/baby daddy drama for me. I couldn't imagine 8 damn kids!
    And whoever would put up with that, BLESS YOUR HEART!!!!!!

  25. 25

    that's a nice car. she's deserves it. haters keep hating.

  26. 26

    Re: BlahBlahBlah3009 – and you can buy a good looking used Mazda3 for 10k.
    Face it, she's a selfish, lying bitch.

  27. 27

    Re: Brains of the Operation – No, no, no, no noooooo! Let's not have Mario reporting on politics and news. This site, as displayed in its banner, is celebrity juice.

    Re: DemiLovatoTheFatWristCutter – nice handle for someone bitching about "haters"

  29. 29

    Re: Roseygirl – leasing a car is a foolish waste of money.

  30. 30

    I think she has it a lot harder then jon because she raises the kids pretty much on her own. He is free to date and no man will come close to her with all those kids. She probably is a bitch but i still think raising 8 kids is a lot of work and that car is probably the last nice thing she will ever get to buy herself for a long long time. Maybe she is a famewhore but I still wish her sucsess for the children's sake.

  31. 31

    What every one is missing is the fact that driving and owning a car are 2 different things.
    No one saw her buy a car.

  32. 32

    What about their dad? Why should Kate be financially responsible, they're his kids too! And even though I dislike her, why shouldn't she drive a cool car?

  33. 33

    If you poor mouth enough, maybe people will start throwing money at you again.

  34. 34

    Well a girl has to have something to call her own. I believe she has no boyfriends at the time. So she may as ride!

  35. 35

    Re: ncchicky – I bet the man that forks over his hard earned $to this bitch to help support his kids cares! When you have 8 kids…buy a fucking toyota or something and get your head right.

  36. 36

    You are all idiots. No one gives a shit when a celebrity buys a freakin rolls royce, it's a freakin audi! So she has 8 kids. As big of a bitch she is portrayed to be on tv… she isn't stupid. I'm sure those kids have college funds put away, and i'm sure she established them long before her and Jon even got divorced.

    She is a reality star… No different then the Kardashians. So her kids spent time on TV… Kris Jenner is still pushing her grown son onto reality shows.

  37. 37

    Kate told the paps she got a good deal and bought it BEFORE her show was cancelled. She still has the big fan she hauls all the kids in and shares the fan with Jon when he has the kids. Jon bought a BMW and a Mercedes in 2009 with the money he stole from the family account. Neither of Jon's cars would carry all 8 kids and his fat ass. I don't like Jon either but of the 3 Kate has been the more responsible parent.

  38. 38

    I don't feel it's anyone's business what she does with her money as long as those kids have a roof over their head and food on the table who cares? Being a mom doesn't mean you can't have anything to yourself.

  39. 39

    Half of you guys are completely missing the point. No one cares that she likes nice cars, or whatever. Earlier this week she was quotes saying things to the tune of "Waahh me, no more show how will I manage my kids so broke no monies wahhh wahh wahh!"
    And now she's gone and bought a brand new Audi? She's a hypocritical bitch and needs a swift kick in the head.

  40. 40

    Jesus if she wants a awesome car let her!!!!

  41. 41

    Let her have a nice car. Just because someone has kids, doesn't mean they have to stop enjoying themselves a bit. Let's face it, she has worked hard the last few years, and earned the money….

  42. 42

    I hope the kids end up with their dad and she ends up in the poor house. That women deserves nothing but a punch in the face!!!

  43. 43

    This woman has no brain.
    She has the financial skills of a pro-athlete.

  44. 44

    Oh, yes she has been on government assistance! The state of PA gave her a nurse full time for over a year and she wanted it extended another year at tax payer expense and she was turned down! There is a law that you have to pay back what you take out and she has never paid a penny. There is a bad stretch of road not far from her house, she has been known to drive like a maniac, speeding and caused a hit and run and she argued with the police that she was a star and couldn't stop and deal with it. TLC's money wagon came thru and paid off the injured party. There is a bad dead mans curve not far from her house. I don't want her to get killed, it would hurt the kids, but with her drinking and driving, and dead mans curve close by you never know. She just may finally done herself in. She has truly been evil to her kids, Jon family friends and it has to stop somehow. She won't do it on her own. Who buys an Audi TT with no job? Love poodle with a mohawk pic and post about kate the grifter gosselin.

  45. 45

    Perez, kate is not a single mom! She is a divorced mom of 8 and the kids have a father named JON! and Jon pays his child support. If he didn't don't you think that crass loudmouth would shout it to the world that he is not paying???

  46. 46

    she needs a smaller vehicle (that won't guzzle gas) for when she 's running errands etc. without the kids - or taking one of them for a doctor's appointment so it makes sense
    given the uncertain finances of the family once the show ends- not sure this would have been my pick
    she knows the bank account and we don't
    she was squirreling away all the money she could so that the kids future is secure- college etc. (remember John took some of the kids money way back)

  47. 47

    If she worked 12 hour nursing shifts, she would not work every single day. She would work 3 days a week, giving her more than enough time to do everything else, even something on the side if she needed extra money.
    She changed so much over the course of the show, letting herself become shrew, materialistic, self-important, and so very childish.
    Time to take stock and put on your big girl pants, Kate!

  48. 48

    Wow, I'm sure a lot of single moms would LOVE that car. I don't care when she bought this car, she had to have known the show won't last forever and if she's in such horrible finances now that she has to cry about it to People, she had no business buying an Audi when a Mazda or Kia would have done just fine. Not to mention her bitching about having to work 12 hours and not having as much time for the kids…welcome to the real world, sweetie.

  49. 49

    Awe… She'll have to work full time and try to juggle work and life like the rest of us? Yeah, don't really feel bad.

  50. 50

    If she's so poor, maybe Steve Hirsch from Vivid should offer her a million to do porn. For some reason, I think she just might. It may be the only way she gets laid and someone would do her!

  51. 51

    The show has been canceled. Thank Jesus for that. She has become an apalling person since starting the show. How about we stop posting her picture, stop talking about her, just STOP all things Gosselin and see what happens. She really should go back to work but as a nurse!!? All I can think of is Nurse Ratchett. Talk about a bedside manner. More drugs please!

  52. 52

    I'm not a fan of her and I've never watched her show. But I don't think anyone has the right to judge what kind of car she buys, you don't know her bank account only she does, if she thinks she can afford it then let her do wutever she wants, she is raising 8 kids on her own while her ex-husband is dating around with different women, let this poor women reward herself once in awhile, she deserves it more than anybody else. As long as we see her kids are well taken care off, clothes, shelter, food and education are provided for them, I don't think we can say she can or cannot buy herself a nice car.

  53. 53

    Why are we cursing "kids" now? They weren't born brats. I'm not crazy about Kate either but I'll at least give her a chance. She has a lot of pressure on her. BJ's for the body guard? I don't think she's man crazy. He's married. I will give her more credit than that.
    She and the Octomom should get together. Maybe they could help each other out. They certainly have enough in common.

  54. 54

    Babies don't ask to be born. Leeches? They can't take care of themselves, what do you expect them to be? I pray that anyone who would make statements like that doesn't have any kids. If you do and feel that way, please seek some help…please!

  55. 55

    "Hi! My name is Kate. I'll be your nurse today." Patient, "Um, I think I just made a miraculous recovery. Where are the AMA papers?" lol There is no way she would survive on a nursing floor now. Bedpans, vomit, etc for 12 hours after being a TV star for years, doesn't sound too appealing. Plus, who would want to work w/ her? The other nurses would probably run her off.

  56. 56

    so what? im sure she lied, just like every other star "Nahhh i dont have any money" of course she fuckin does. how much do you want to bet this lady has millions saved? shes not stupid guys. seriously? and let her drive waht she wants. like ncchicky said, yo ucant expect her to drive in a friggin bus while the kids are at school. shut the hell up, who the fuck are you to judge her situation. im sure she knows what shes doing. whats wrong with getting spray tans and going on vacations? her kids were going with her.. im sure if you guys were given the opportunity she had, you would've done the same. if i had 8 kids, i sure would. thats the best way possible to make bank. nursing sure wouldnt pay for it.

  57. 57

    Re: Sydney10 – i dont get why you say that. she is a good mother. how do you expect a woman living with 8 children not to be a bitch sometimes. have you tried taking care of 8 kids? ive taken care of 2 and i go crazy. and im not even their parents so yeah. shes not a bitch to her kids, they love her, they are super sweet and well mannered, smart children, i dont see the issue. my mother has a day care of 10 children, they are here only till 5 o clock and she can be a total bitch sometimes, you have no idea how stressful it is. now imagine having to bathe all those children, feed them breakfast lunch and dinner, put them to bed, give them all attention (children are attention whores) and still trying to discipline them. its fuckin hard. she is not a bitch for someone in her circumstance okay sweety.

  58. 58

    with or without the car, kids, etc., she is one huge ASSHOLE.

  59. 59

    I think the reason people are so outraged is that she's gone on every news outlet in the country claiming she can't support her children, demanding our sympathy, and then buys herself an expensive present. If she hadn't been expressing her apparent financial woes all over the damn place, I would say "Who cares about her car"? It's the deceit that's so infuriating. The world (not just America) is going through an economic crisis, people are struggling to feed their families with their low paying jobs. If they're lucky to have one. Then comes Kate Gosselin, who for six years has been making money just because she has a lot of children. Yes, being a mother is hard but she had nannies all over the damn place and her only priority was making sure the cameras were around for epic meltdowns. My mother was widowed before she was 40 and had three kids to raise on her own, no child support payments, no nannies, and no big check from TLC. She worked two jobs, saved up all her coffee break money to buy me a teddy bear, and did all this by herself. So I think Kate, with a big earnings from her reality tv show and numerous appearances, can manage.

  60. 60

    i dont see anything wrong with this….i have two cars also…a mini van for when me and my four kids and husband go out and we have a a 2 door honda accord for when we go out..i also use it for when my kids are in school and i run my errands myself…

  61. @v@ says – reply to this


    I'm pretty sure she has the family van, but needs a bit of gas economy when she has to run errands or go to work by herself. She can take one or three kids to the dentist or doctor more cheaply without firing up a 12 person econo-van. Audi is a decent and reliable car that could last her for years if things get lean.

  62. 62

    I still like Kate Gosselin and I'm going to miss the show. She'll be fine, I really do think she'll find work in show business and writing. SORRY guys, but she'll be around, and I'll be watching. I don't understand why hundreds of others can have this kind of career with kids, and no one says anything about that. Like I said, I don't think anyone here would turn down the money and perks, so why hate?

  63. 63

    I never understood why they did not just pay off the house they had and stay there. It was a pretty good size house in a nice neighborhood, and it was big enough. I do understand her wanting a run around town car when the kids are in school or her ex has them but it does seem a little pricey for someone who keeps saying how scared they are about finances. I don't know that she is really scared so much as hoping to get a job on a talk show and this is something for her to talk to People magazine about and get on the cover. I bet the kids get stressed always hearing their mom give interviews saying how scary it is now that the show is cancelled.

  64. 64

    What in the world was she doing tooling around in her Audi at 1:30 A.M….Did she run out of milk…..??? I see her as a Prima Donna Wannabe who uses her children for 15 minutes of fame……Well, her 15 minutes are up and she better get a job….Maybe she should go crawling back to the best thing in her life, that she threw in the trash…..But then again I doubt it if he would want the witch….She treats all around her, like servants….Kate, just get a real job and support your kids instead of trying to promote yourself….I just hated seeing you in your sky high heels, and your assets hanging out while on expeditions with your children…..Honestly….heels at a farm ????
