Did Kate lose her blog job on The Stir? That was fast.

Elspeth said...

She lost that job long ago.

Protect8 said...

Well, I'm sure losing the blog job at The Stir was someone else's fault - she's an "author" after all.

I don't know why people get all the changes to their faces; but, it is hard to look at Kate now that she has had these changes and doesn't look as youthful as she once did after having the 8 children.I hope her personality changed also. Do not know her or know if she ever lets her guard down. But re: Celebrity Apprentice, I doubt that anyone gets along with Brandi Glanville, she will do anything,yes anything for some comment in the social media. I do think Kate has tried to stay under the radar.

I did catch her ex on Couples Therapy and after listening to him and his "girlfriend" I can understand how Kate would not want her children around the both of them, their smoking, their cursing, their bad grammar and no, this is one time I would not blame Kate G for trying to control her children and his "vast" choice of women who see him as a "celebrity" as a bartender and travel home with home (so admitted to his girlfriend on this show by Jon)Kate does have the children and her life is surrounded by them.As much as I would rather see her get a 9 to 5 job, I do think she raises her children well now....I said now and has been since being as of TV. I can understand why the 13 almost 14 yr old twins do not talk to their father. One should not curse out one's ex wife on a cable show repeatedly and he sure did.Not much of a man to do that. certainly hope these children are in a more secure and safe environment with their mother vs dad...........it was a horrible show to watch and see Jon so bitter, angry and terrible language and his choice of a girlfriend. Very Sad.............

Heffner Road said...

Does anyone know where Jon is working?

Elizabeth said...

As far as the drinking and cursing goes, Kate can't complain. Word is that she is a falling down drunk herself. She has kept it a bit more hidden from the world is all. She has a foul mouth herself and a much worse temper than Jon.

Waiting tables just wasn’t for Jon Gosselin.

The father of eight hit rock bottom last year when he started waiting and bussing tables at a local Penn. Pub to make ends meet, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned Gosselin was fired from his position a few months ago.

“Jon was fired for blowing off shifts and coming in late,” a source close to the situation told Radar.

“He had no work ethic and felt he could come and go as he pleased.”

Gosselin, 37, finally found a way to supplement his income though when he joined VH1‘s Couples Therapy with girlfriend Liz Jannetta.

But even while waiting tables, the source tells Radar that Jon took precautions as a public figure to protect himself while he worked at Emily’s pub in Beckersville.

“Jon had the restaurant sign a non-disclosure agreement stating they cannot speak negatively about him,” the source told Radar.

Another source tells Radar that Gosselin now has a new career endeavor in sales.

“He left the restaurant a few months ago,” the source said.

“He’s doing sales for some credit card type of company where they help manage credit card swipes for businesses.”

As Radar previously reported, Jon is paying no child support to the mother of his eight children and ex-wife, Kate Gosselin.

The one-time TLC star made a secret deal with Kate, 39, in which he waived his rights for a say in the kids’ TV appearances in exchange for not having to pay his child support.

What kind of job do you think would be perfect for Jon? Sound off in the comments below

So how much are property taxes each year?

I live nearby...my home is assessed at $300,000 and my property taxes are $8,000. Based on her home assessed at $480+ I would estimate her taxes around 13 to 14 thousand dollars

They're not little kids anymore.

Kate Gosselin and her brood return for a two-hour Kate Plus 8 special next month on TLC. And judging by this exclusive preview, family life is just as hectic for the reality mom – though her tactics have become perhaps a little more devious.

"It's all still happening, with or without cameras," she says. "I'm getting older, tireder, more worn out. The kids are getting older and smarter and giving me a run for my money, daily and hourly and moment by moment."

Two and a half years after the show went off the air, twin girls Cara and Mady are now 13, and the sextuplets – daughters Leah, Alexis and Hannah, and sons Aaden, Collin and Joel – just turned 10 on May 10.





Keep up with Kate Gosselin in the pages of PEOPLE Magazine by subscribing now.


Organizing the clan seems to still be a full-time job, while discipline has become even more of a challenge. One trick Gosselin, 39, has picked up is to use technology to get her teen girls to behave. Watch how she does it in the clip above.

"I've learned I'm not the only parent of teens who has discovered that little gem," she says.

The Kate Plus 8 special airs June 25 (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.

Protect8 said...

The trailer on the People website for the Gosselin special is truly cringeworthy and awful. And terrifying. Like the old days, it makes one wonder what goes on when the cameras are off. It's weird to think that Kate Gosselin can watch herself in this video and think she is entertaining. How can she humiliate her children like this?

cali-girl said...

I am so hoping someone else spotted this, too!
On Tuesday Night's edition of TLC's The Little Couple (love them so much!--they are the real deal) Jen and Bill were answering questions from the viewers.
One of the questions was about the crew that traveled with them when they went to China and India to adopt their children. There's a pix of the crew, and Jen explains there are 3 producers, plus cameramen, etc. Standing to the far left of the picture is a grey-haired man that I swear is Steve Neild. I re-wound to look again, and I'm almost positive it is.
Did anyone see this, too? Or still have recorded so that you can look?
If it is, TLC must still be using him for security detail.

jennine s said...

The truth is, her daughter wasn't being disrespectful at all. When Kate announced the "fun things" they would be doing on spring break, her daughter seeing the camera crew and put 2 and 2 together. And Kate says they love to film?

geistmadl said...

I saw the preview or the June special. Nothing has changed. She is still a bitch and Mady stilll needs therapy.

I'm Ready, Mr. DeMille said...

I saw the clip and I see that nothing has changed in K8's world. She is still treating the kids like they are toddlers. I raised my kids as a single mom (widow)and had to realize that they sometimes had good ideas and input into family situations. They were able to speak up and their concerns were talked out. Some of their ideas were good and others not so much but they had their say (without tantrums). It was a learning process for all of us.

Was the Mady stomping scene staged? After all, she is the one who wants to be an actress. If not, there is not much left to be entertaining as the "K9 is in charge" premise has gotten really stale. TOO STAGED TO BE ENTERTAINING. We have seen it all before. It would be nice if each child would be allowed to be him/herself with their own unique personality.

NO I think something happened before that Kate already had her phone. I think Maddies was upset the fun time was geared to the tubs.s not her and Cara. Its always about the tubs. So the 13 year old would have to do baby things again even though they are 10.

The Little Couple (TLC) has been using Steve for security for quite some time. He did go on the trip to China with them. He also has been with Honey Boo Boo and company.

cali-girl said...

Watching the preview clip, I totally agree that it is staged. As someone else commented, Mady wants to be an actress. Perhaps she's been told this could be her vehicle to fame and fortune.

And the 10 YEAR OLD kids all standing around Kate in the kitchen as she asks, "Who wants scrambled eggs [or whatever]--raise your hand" HUH????

Anonymous said...

the clean and green status on her property means that she pays lower taxes than a property valued at the same price but not listed as clean and green. The savings are substantial....I wouldn't be surprised if her taxes are close to what you pay...unless you too are clean and green status.

What A Bitch said...

What a total bitch. How would she like it if someone bought HER something she really wanted only to take it away for every minor infraction? And how embarrassing for Mady to have that filmed and then shown on TV and posted online for the world to see - which is FAR WORSE than Kate throwing a fit that THEY embarrassed HER when they refused to speak for the TV interview. Or is this a delayed punishment for that?

And what mother of 10 and 13 year olds decides how the kids will spend THEIR spring break without their input - especially a mother who has no idea what "fun" is? She should have done what she did with their 6th birthday cake design and had them all write down the things that THEY wanted to do, then all work TOGETHER to come up with a plan, since she's supposedly the queen of planning isn't she?

Heffner Road said...

green and clean...taxes are not much lower then before...my hope is assessed at $305,000 and my property taxes are $8,000

If it was filmed for the special, then TLC would have planned it. Apparently it's a carnival theme.

Explosive Tell-All Kate Gosselin Book Being Conveniently Re-Released Same Week As TLC Special — ‘It’s Fictitious & Defamatory,’ She Says

Kate Gosselin dropped her hacking and wiretapping lawsuit last year against Robert Hoffman for an explosive tell-all book about her family and it might be coming back to bite her.

The author is conveniently re-releasing the book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World, The Rise and Fall of a Reality TV Queen, just four days after Gosselin’s special, Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10, airs, and RadarOnline.com has the exclusive details.

“INSIDE KATE GOSSELIN’S ‘HOUSE OF HORRORS,’” the author’s website touts.

PHOTOS: PHOTOS: Celebs Who Have Been Divorced Twice Before 40

“Conspiracy. Massive Coverup. Lawsuits and Legal Threats. Exploitation. Fraud. Abuse. Animal Cruelty. Lies. Read The Book that two of the most powerful law firms in the country have tried to stop from being published.”

“Kate knew this might be coming. She feels if the book gets published again and stays published, it’s still defamatory to have behind her name,” a source close to the mother of eight told Radar.

“It’s fiction. A former tabloid reporter doesn’t have first hand knowledge of anything. Only someone who lived in the house would have true knowledge and Robert Hoffman did not live at the Gosselin home.”

Furthermore, the source claims Kate’s ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, knew about the re-release because he’s friends with Hoffman and tried to use it as a ploy for money.

“Jon wants alimony and he told Kate he would stop the book from being published if she gave him alimony. She of course refused,” the source said.

“He does not pay child support for his eight kids and now he wants alimony after he signed his rights away years ago. Now Robert Hoffman has full control publicly for the book but Jon is splitting the profits 50/50 privately.”

As Radar exclusively reported in Jan., Jon gave up all rights in having a say whether or not his kids appear on TV in exchange for not having to pay child support, in a secret deal with Kate.

“As of now, Jon doesn’t have much so he uses his kids publicly and pretends like he wants them off TV, but he just wants alimony,” the source continued.

“Meanwhile, Kate and the kids are happy filming and being able to afford all the necessities of raising eight children; food, bills, clothes, education, athletics, etc.”

When the book was originally released in 2012, Hoffman made vitriolic charges against the reality TV star, including allegations that she used a wooden spoon to spank her children and was cruel to the family pets.

The book was removed from sale after legal threats from Kate and her legal team.

Debbie H said...

OK!!!Just found out that the Robert Hoffman book FINALLY will be released 4 days after the TLC special...One has to wonder if TLC hates Kate so bad they did this special just as a vehicle for Robert to release his book and help his sales...LOL

Real time mom said...

I bought the book the first time, before it was removed from sale. It used her own diaries against her. What a horrible woman. Her comcast account email was sixymomma@comcast.net I'm sure she doesnt use that one after it was published. She probably has the same name variation. Shes obsessed with being seen as a sexy mother. UGH!

All the dirty details for her reality show between her and the producers were sent from that account. free trips, free plastic surgery, free furniture, free clothes, all the while claiming she's poor. Please! that tv show was the best thing that ever happened to her. Thats why she's never stopping. It's her golden ticket.

sglily said...

It looks to me like Kate is obsessed with reliving the past in a sorry attempt to cash in on what brought her big bucks in the beginning. The clip of her scolding Mady as Mady makes a face and stomps out of the room. Same ol' Mady...only now she's...13. Right. The sextuplets 10th bday in full ode to 3rd birthday carnival. Kate in her pink wig. Oh but this time she's strutting around in her tube top style sundress displaying full on saggy boobs. Eww. Why, TLC, why?

MayDay said...

I think it is funny how her special is slapped in between two Honey Boo Boo shows. It is almost like TLC saying " in your face Kate" we want this ridiculous family and their antics over you and your family. What a joke both shows are....

lisa van amerongen said...

Holy plastic surgery for Kate. Wow she looks old.

Family Circus! Kate Gosselin Returns To TLC With Party-Planning Special For Sextuplets’ 10th Birthday, Deals With Precious Teen Twins

Posted on Jun 20, 2014 @ 5:55AM | By Radar Staff

The Gosselins are back!

The extended family that dominated the tabloid headlines and TV ratings just five years ago returned to TLC’s lineup on Thursday, with the first of a two-part special dubbed Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10, documenting the milestone 10th birthday for her sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel and Leah.

The special centered around Kate Gosselin’s elaborate plants for an unforgettable, “huge, real life-size grown-up carnival” with the kids’ involvement, as she noted that “it’s very hard to find a theme that six kids are all excited about.”

Watch the video on RadarOnline.com





Viewers Thursday might have been a bit taken aback by the rapid development of the very precocious children — in particular the sextuplets’ older sisters, 13-year-old twins Cara and Mady — and their transition from mommy’s girls to the beginnings of teen angst, as Mady called herself “an awful role model” to her younger siblings.

PHOTOS: Jon & Kate Plus 30 Scandals — Secrets & Lies Of Reality TV’s Former First Family

“This is stupid: I don’t want to be a part of this,” Mady griped of the party, adding, “This isn’t my birthday, so I don’t care.”

In another instance, Kate took on — and vanquished — Mady at a game of gaga ball, as the competitive mom said, “I have a problem with parents who let their kids win, because nobody is going to let me win.”

One way Kate has been able to control to the sometimes-defiant duo is through technology, as she boasted, “I got those girls cell phones and iPads so I could take them away.”

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin Through The Years

Thankfully for Kate, the mother-of-eight said she was relieved by the growing autonomy amongst the sextuplets, noting how they function like a team and are there to help pick one another up when the time calls for it.

In the special, Kate also proudly showed off her gorgeous, Rice Krispie-craving pet bird named Zorro, adding to the reality TV family’s home menagerie of chicken, fish and a dog.

The first half ended with Kate wrapping up plans for the kids and the party, with things seemingly going smoothly — but did they? We’ll find out next week when the second installment of Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10 airs Thursday at 10/9c TLC.

Leigh Ann said...

On the show Kate says she's homebased and has had less travel lately. What exactly does she do? Anything?

Had enough said...

Can anyone please tell me if there is a difference in Robert's first book about Kate, and the second book. Are they the same book?

Kate Gosselin's Single Mom Confession: 'I Cry Behind Closed Doors'

By Abby Franklin

06/25/2014 at 02:35 PM EDT


Kate Gosselin looks like she has her life under control, but she wants the world to know it's not easy being a single mom to eight kids.

"I'm one of many single moms out there. It's not ideal. On a very busy day where the logistics aren't lining up – I have to be here to pick this kid up and I have to be there to do whatever, that happens so often now I can't even tell you," she says in an exclusive sneak peek from TLC's two-part Kate Plus Eight special, airing June 26 (10 p.m. ET).

"It's really easy to feel like just saying, 'It's too much. There's me and there's eight kids,' " the 39-year-old continues. "I don't think an hour goes by that I'm not reminded that those odds are completely unbalanced."

Gosselin, who divorced husband Jon in 2009 after 10 years of marriage, says in an exclusive teaser from the show that like a lot of moms, her goal is simply to get through the day.


Keep up with Kate Gosselin in the pages of PEOPLE Magazine by subscribing now.


"It was never my intent to portray myself as superwoman," the author of three New York Times best-sellers insists. "I mean, I cry behind closed doors, I struggle. But I have to remind myself, this is my one shot. You're going to mess up. Just don't give up."

In a second clip from the special, the multi-tasker is making a birthday cake for her daughters with "2,000 lbs. of butter in it" and even though she is her own worst critic, Gosselin's almost convinced herself it looks okay – until the family's pet bird, Zorro, decides to fly over for a closer inspection.

If We're Believing Books, Kate Gosselin Really Might Be a Monster After All

6/25/2014 11:40 AM PDT, by Emily Trainham

0625_fish_kate
You probably never thought that it was even possible to think less of Kate Gosselin than you already do, but surprise! There's a whole, whole bunch of information in this brand new book, an unauthorized biography called "Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World," that claims that Kate is way, way more awful than we've ever given her credit for.

The book, which was written by a reporter for "Us," states that Kate wanted to have babies just so that she could become famous. She allegedly followed the story of another woman who gave birth to multiple babies and saw that she was given lots of gifts and attention, so she wanted to hop on that train. Her ultimate goal, according to the book, was to be "the working mom's Martha Stewart." After she got pregnant with the sextuplets, she contacted television networks until someone gave her a show. But wait, because it's about to get a million times worse.

Kate allegedly wasn't even on the whole thing to be a mother, she just wanted the fame and the money, so she got other people to do chores and take care of the children and, of course, to give her money. She apparently asked everyone for money, from her family to her church to total strangers, and at one point she was receiving over $750 in gift cards a day. But now it's going to get even worse ...

This book also claims that while Kate wasn't really into parenting, she was definitely into punishing. Kate was allegedly very quick to give out spankings, and she would throw toys away or destroy them when angry. The author says that Kate insisted that the kids loved their spankings, which I probably don't have to tell you sounds like total terrifying nonsense. The author also says that he had access to Kate's journal, and in one entry Kate wrote that she spanked one of her sons "as hard as I could and thought I may seriously injure him," and she went on to pray for help to stop. There are also stories in which Kate scolded one of the kids by nearly putting his face in dog feces, and another where she put a child outside in the cold without a coat because he didn't manage to shut a door all the way.

Look, if even just a tiny little bit of this book is true, then it's probably one of the most horrible things we've ever heard about a celebrity. So can this be enough to ship her off to some remote island so that we never have to hear about her awfulness again? Please? .

Kate Gosselin Tell-All Book Author Calls Her A ‘Bully,’ Says ‘Things Have Only Gotten Worse For The Poor Gosselin Children’

Posted on Jun 25, 2014 @ 10:48AM | By Amber Ryland - News Editor

kate-gosselin-robert-hoffman-tell-all-book-bully-poor-children-jon-how-she-fooled-the-world-SQ


Just in time for the airing of Kate Gosselin‘s two-part TLC special, author Robert Hoffman has re-released his explosive tell-all book on the mother of eight and in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, he reveals there are some new allegations in the book.

PHOTOS: The 15 Most Shocking Splits Of Reality Television Couples

“I don’t like bullies. I don’t think anyone does. I don’t think anyone wants to live in a country where the people with the most money who can afford the best lawyers should get to automatically control the narrative, whatever that may be,” Hoffman told Radar when asked why he chose to re-release the book.

“I believe people have a right to hear all sides of the story and not just the side that the people with the most money want to shove down their throats. People are smart enough to make their own decisions and make up their own minds based on the facts.

PHOTOS: Reality Television’s 19 Biggest Tragedies

“I think it’s time for all the cards to be put on the table and to let the chips fall where they may.”

Gosselin, 39, previously sued Hoffman and her ex-husband, Jon — claiming he had a hand in the book — claiming he penned his self-published book about her using information obtained by Jon through hacking into her computer and stealing her identity, but later dropped the legal battle.

“There is much new information in the new book as well as the original horror stories,” Hoffman told Radar.

“Things appear to have only gotten worse for the poor Gosselin children.”

As Radar previously reported, Hoffman claimed in his first release of the book that Gosselin beat her eight children with a wooden spoon and was cruel to the family animals, leaving them in their cages for hours on end with no food.

Gosselin adamantly denied all claims.

“I don’t want to live with a ‘what if’ hanging over my head where children are concerned,” Hoffman concluded.

Hoffman’s book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, The Rise and Fall of a Reality TV Queen, is now available for digital download on Amazon with a print edition coming soon.

THE BIRTHDAY PARTY...

WE;; GWOP'S WHAT DID YOU THINK..

I am sure TLC paid for everything.
If you notice, party supplies were purchased at Party City. fish at Pet Smart, customs at Bon Ton, and the purchased birthday cake at Dosie Dough all in Wyomissing/Spring Township.

Notice no one in the stores. Either they were there before the stores opened, or the closed the stores just for Kate and Kids..

A New Low — Kate Gosselin Calls Her Kids ‘Disabled’ In Letter She Allegedly Wrote To The State Begging For Free Full-Time Childcare

Posted on Jun 26, 2014 @ 14:05PM | By Amber Ryland - News Editor

Kate Gosselin was so frazzled with her new sextuplets that the mother-of-eight resorted to calling her children “disabled” in an effort to obtain free full-time childcare from the State of Pennsylvania, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

According to a letter obtained by controversial author Robert Hoffman included in his tell-all book, allegedly written by Gosselin in 2005, the reality TV star complained she was unable to care alone for her eight children because they could not take care of themselves — and in a moment of ignorance referred to them as disabled.

See Kate Gosselin’s Letter To The State Calling Her Kids ‘Disabled,’ Begging For Free Childcare

Included in his book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, The Rise and Fall of a Reality TV Queen, an explosive tell-all about Gosselin, Hoffman published the letter in full.

Also included is a letter from Senator Michael A. O’Pake who says he was contacted by the Gosselins to write to the state’s Welfare Secretary, Estelle Richman, asking her to “personally review this case so that a compassionate and just result be obtained.”

“We have eight children four years old and under. Our six youngest are 11 months old. In a sense our children (our six 11 month olds) are disabled,” the letter reads.

“They cannot feed themselves, transport themselves up and down stairs or at all, bathe themselves, get a drink when they are thirsty, go to the bathroom by themselves, put themselves to bed or dress themselves.”

Gosselin pleads that the children are unsafe because they “do not know right from wrong” and could fall down the stairs or poke each other in the eyes.

“Any one person cannot safely care for and keep eight children safe from danger, 12 hours per day, 5 days per week!” Gosselin, 39, wrote.

She argues that the “community resources” they were given are not enough and unreliable.

“‘Community Resources’ — a list of college students or high school students available ‘here and there’ as their schedules allow, who when other things come up aren’t afraid to cancel on us — thus leaving my children to wait for lunch or my 4 year olds home from preschool for lack of transportation,” Gosselin wrote.

“Elderly ladies who cannot lift one 20 lbs. baby let alone 6 and who certainly cannot do stairs while carrying one or two babies! Baths are out of the question!”

The controversial reality TV star begged to keep nurse aide Angie Krall, who had been helping them for the last nine months claiming the search for someone new was too exhausting.

“Where will I find this person to walk in, take over for minimal pay as a home health aide, who we as parents trust, who our children trust and love and who will be able to on a whim do what 9 months (with our nurse) of history has built?” the letter states.

“Exactly my point! By the time May 30 rolls around, a new person, will just be scratching the surface of learning our daily routine and handling the many time management challenges! This is all too exhausting and unworth it for me and family!”

Krall would later reveal that the short-fused Gosselin fired 40 nurses and nurse’s aides in the three months before she was hired, and gave an interview to Us Weekly in which she slammed Gosselin.

“[She is] even more combative with her family and employees. Krall reveals that Kate posted ‘demeaning’ signs in every room detailing rules, and fired one woman on the spot for washing her hands in the kitchen instead of the bathroom. ‘Kate flipped,’ says Krall. ‘She thought it was cross-contamination,’” the magazine wrote in 2009.

Krall said Gosselin “thought they were owed stuff. The money factor was huge.”

A New Low — Kate Gosselin Calls Her Kids ‘Disabled’ In Letter She Allegedly Wrote To The State Begging For Free Full-Time Childcare

Posted on Jun 26, 2014 @ 14:05PM | By Amber Ryland - News Editor


Kate Gosselin was so frazzled with her new sextuplets that the mother-of-eight resorted to calling her children “disabled” in an effort to obtain free full-time childcare from the State of Pennsylvania, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

According to a letter obtained by controversial author Robert Hoffman included in his tell-all book, allegedly written by Gosselin in 2005, the reality TV star complained she was unable to care alone for her eight children because they could not take care of themselves — and in a moment of ignorance referred to them as disabled.

Included in his book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, The Rise and Fall of a Reality TV Queen, an explosive tell-all about Gosselin, Hoffman published the letter in full.

Also included is a letter from Senator Michael A. O’Pake who says he was contacted by the Gosselins to write to the state’s Welfare Secretary, Estelle Richman, asking her to “personally review this case so that a compassionate and just result be obtained.”

“We have eight children four years old and under. Our six youngest are 11 months old. In a sense our children (our six 11 month olds) are disabled,” the letter reads.

Gosselin ended the letter by inviting the state to come visit her home so they could “see what I’m telling you is true!”

Interestingly, Kate slammed her ex-husband, Jon, just eight months ago after he appeared on the OWN show Where Are They Now? and stated his kids were “developmentally behind.”

“When our kids grow up, they may see their father’s latest interview and wonder why he made untrue and hurtful statements about them,” Kate wrote on her blog.

“I know that I risk stirring up an unwanted public and private ‘frenzy’ by commenting on this, but, if our children ever stumble upon that interview, I want to be able to point them to this statement so that they know that I publicly set the record 100% straight on this one, for their sake.”

Inside Kate Gosselin’s Thirst For Fame & Her Twisted Plan To Become A Celebrity Through Her Kids

Posted on Jun 27, 2014 @ 5:12AM | By Amber Ryland - News Editor

In 1997 Iowa-native Bobbi McCaughey gave birth to septuplets, made national headlines and was gifted everything under the sun for her seven children — including college educations — and thus was born a thirst in Kate Gosselin for fame, tell-all book author Robert Hoffman claims.

After seeing McCaughey and her husband grace the cover of Time magazine, Gosselin determined that she too could be a celebrity “Supermom” if she had Higher Order Multiples (triplets or more) and build an empire bigger than Martha Stewart’s, Hoffman writes in the controversial book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, The Rise and Fall of a Reality TV Queen.

Giving birth first to twin girls Mady and Cara, Hoffman alleges that Gosselin “tried to market the girls from the time they were born,” getting headshots done and using them to contact modeling agencies and commercial ads.

“There just was nothing special about a set of twins,” she was allegedly told by one photographer she’d contacted.

Gosselin became obsessed with the McCaughey family, Hoffman says, pointing out what he calls “eerie, and some downright creepy, similarities between Bobbi McCaughey and her septuplets and Kate Gosselin, whose sextuplets were born nearly 7 years later.”

Hoffman’s list is extensive and includes things like both women publicly stating they are strongly against selective reduction, McCaughey stating she’d thought about becoming a nurse and Gosselin actually becoming a nurse, using the same wording in interviews like, “God gave us these kids,” and they both came from devout Christian families and were preacher’s daughters.
But that’s not where it ends.

“When discussing the naming of her sextuplets in her book, Kate Gosselin says that they just picked first names randomly. Bobbi McCaughey’s first-born septuplet daughter was named Alexis, and her last-born septuplet son was named Joel,” Hoffman wrote.

“Kate Gosselin ‘randomly’ named her first-born sextuplet daughter Alexis and her last-born sextuplet son Joel.”

But before Gosselin, 39, even had children, Hoffman claims her plan from the beginning was to become a nurse so she could marry a rich doctor — but settled for ex-husband Jon, the son of a wealthy doctor.

“Nobody could understand why she wanted to became a nurse in the first place. It was obvious that she didn’t like people and had no interest in helping them. She cringed at the thought of touching sick people,” a fellow nurse who worked with Gosselin at The Reading Hospital and Medical Center told Hoffman.

“She thought she was better and smarter than everyone else, even though she clearly wasn’t.”

A second former colleague of Gosselin’s who attended nursing school with her said, “Even during nursing school, Kate threw herself at every doctor she could find, even the ugly ones, but was rejected every time. That made her mad.”

Having no luck with doctors, Gosselin met Jon at a picnic in Oct. 1997 and the two eventually wed in 1999.

“Kate did pretty well for herself in marrying Jon because his father was extremely generous,” Hoffman wrote.

“He paid for their wedding, bought them their first house in Wyomissing, and quietly supported them financially, giving them a large check each month. He gave them a lot of support and a lot of money, and Kate LOVED that about him.”

As for how the sextuplets came to be, Gosselin claims she “discovered” she had a condition called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) which meant she would require fertility treatments to conceive — but Hoffman claims in the explosive tell-all book that she went behind her doctor’s back and took extra Human Chorionic Gonadotropin in an effort to produce more eggs and have multiples.

According to Hoffman, Gosselin was told by the doctor that got her pregnant with the twin girls via IUI that she should go the route of IVF next cycle because she’d said she only wanted “just one more baby” and a single embryo transfer with IVF with virtually delete any chance of multiples.

But Hoffman is adamant that Gosselin secretly wanted multiples, so she switched and found a “new doctor who would give IUI treatments for her undiagnosed case of PCOS,” Hoffman writes.

After receiving a final injection of HCG and then getting an IUI, Hoffman claims Gosselin then went home and gave herself at least one more additional shot of the HCG, hoping it would help release more eggs for fertilization.

“What Kate actually did when she got home was to immediately give herself at least one more shot of HCG, which she had purchased online in a kit three months earlier. To keep the purchase a secret, she went outside the United States and purchased the drug overseas and had it shipped to her newly created post office box in Wyomissing,” Hoffman wrote in the book.

“She used the name K. Kauffman when ordering. Perhaps the only mistake she made is not destroying the HCG packaging.”

Hoffman claims much of the material for his book was found in Gosselin’s trash — including a hard-drive containing her personal journal entries.

Gosselin initially filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Hoffman, and her ex Jon claiming he gave Hoffman the hard-drive, for hacking and wiretapping when he first released the book in 2013.

The book was pulled and Gosselin dropped her lawsuit

if kate has no job how is she living. Jon could not support her in that lavish life style. hope that house is paid off. the up keep is pretty pricy.

Well, Kate has money invested and she can downsize. Not an option for her. She could also go back to nursing, choosing her own hours or working from home.
I hope TLC has learned a lesson, and will not put her on any more shows. It was definitely the Kate show.

I shop during the day and PetSmart and Party City are often empty on week days. Maybe a couple of other people on the other side of the store. It'd be easy to film and not have anyone else in the shot. As for the fish at the party, I could have told her that was a bad idea. If my daughter won a fish at a party, we'd have to politely say to the hostess we just couldn't keep it. And they aren't all going to get won, either. She should have known she was going to end up with a bunch of leftover fish. I wonder what PetSmart's return policy on fish is? I agree this was the Kate show. They didn't even ask the kids afterward how they enjoyed their party. And we didn't get any kind of an update on the six younger kids except that they're turning 10, one of the boys is a dapper dresser and the girls aren't into boy friends yet (I should hope not, they're just 10). Of course they probably don't have any activities or sports to talk about, anyway.

One other note..

Near the end of the party, they brought out from the "barn" a John Deere "gator" and let the kids drive it...this is not a toy...I own one...their are decals pasted all over that the equipment is dangerous and could up set and roll over thus injury or death...yet she let the kids drive it....

She has no sense
