Someway, somehow…the truth always comes out!
In a public letter addressing the matter, Kluth cited "a series of recent events" and a lack of "authenticity" in her contributions to the site.
It turns out that was all just code for negative publicity and bad ideas on her part.
"It's no secret that Kate's personal life has led to a lot of negative publicity. At the end of the day, the integrity of the company was more important than any publicity they were getting by having Kate as a guest blogger."
And there's nothing wrong with that. If Kate is getting flack for smacking her kids around with a wooden spoon, it's no surprise a company wouldn't want to be associated with that.
More importantly, it sounds like she just wasn't that good at her job to begin with. The source suggests her "money-saving tips" weren't all that practical for the site's demographic and continued:
"Kate wasn't really contributing realistic coupon ideas and money-saving tips for the every day working class person, and when she was given direction on how to better blog, it was ignored. And readers weren't taking her blogs seriously anyways because of her status as a wealthy celebrity."
So far, Kate hasn't released a comment on the matter. And honestly, she probably shouldn't.
