Media Jerks – Kate Gosselin

By Sandra & Allison Lord


(©) 2010 Lord Sisters. All Rights Reserved.


It isn’t because she dances with two left feet or makes iRobot look like Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers that Kate Gosselin has made our Media Jerks list. We are just sick of Kate using her kids to further her so called “career,” crying ad nauseum about struggling to make ends meet, and acting like she’s some poor single mom having to take every job in the limelight to feed her children. She is not the only person in the world with multiples to feed!

In fact, the Harris kids, born in 2002 — America’s first recorded set of surviving African-American sextuplets — have no television show and the family has barely been able to survive on the father’s salary of about $30,000 a year as an elementary school teacher.

Kate Gosselin is making enough money off her books and appearances that should allow her to stop crying already!

We don’t doubt that Kate loves her children very much and wants to provide for them but it appears that she is even more motivated to support a certain lifestyle for herself. Her constant need to be in the limelight and present herself as some kind of “star” or “diva” will make her do anything to maintain the celebrity lifestyle that she is obsessed with and tag it onto “providing” for her ‘Plus 8.’

With constant, tearful declarations of unflinching devotion to her kids, Kate has slyly discovered the way into the heart of America. But some of us are just not buying it and we don’t understand how more people can’t see through it.

People seem to have forgotten the angry, controlling shrew that berated and emasculated her husband, Jon, on their TLC show, Jon & Kate Plus 8. As success rolled in, she became crazier and he became hornier. Most people have turned on Jon, including ourselves, but after seeing the abuse and humiliation he suffered on camera, one can surely understand why he went bonkers at the first bit of attention from women. But let’s not forget that before the millions came rolling in, Jon was the sole provider who worked two jobs to take care of his family. Now, back to the ever-clever Kate. Knowing Jon would eventually self-destruct, she gave him enough rope to hang himself. He did… And Kate came off smelling like, well, Kate.

Kate Gosselin has the same polarizing effect as Sarah Palin. You either love her or hate her and they both make for good voyeuristic television as people tune in for the train wreck that inevitably happens with them. Neither seems aware that ‘high ratings’ doesn’t mean they have millions of fans.

Kate constantly complains that the paparazzi won’t leave her alone. We guarantee that if she were to keep a low profile, the tabloids would eventually lose interest, and so would the paparazzi and the public. After all, the Gosselins have no discernible talent and have not actually worked to gain their so-called fame other than at a successful union of sperm, uterus, ovaries, egg and more sperm. That’s it. For that they became celebrities. If they didn’t have sextuplets, we wouldn’t have known these people existed.

But no, in an effort to remain in the limelight and continue to get more coverage than even A-List (legitimate) stars, Kate has grabbed two new shows with TLC: ‘Kate plus Eight‘ and ‘Twist of Kate.’

What Kate is doing is not parenting. She may be putting food on the table, but who is actually there feeding her kids?

After about 20 minutes home, Kate packs up yet another suitcase, hops into a waiting limousine and is off.

The kids stay behind with the nanny.

    Wow this is a naughty post about dominant ladies. lol.

  2. Marika says:

    Spot on!!! I think you gals captured the real Kate. I wish America would too. Keep those interesting blogs coming.

  3. Carrie Searson says:

    Kate Gosselin wants to use the press for her benefit but if they show up when she doesn’t want them there, the press is picking on her. you can’t have it both ways Kate.

  4. Bonnie G. says:

    Kate, Octomom and Palin need to focus on their kids instead of fame. They will never get these years back and these precious years.

  5. Bev Johnson says:

    I was so happy when they kicked her off Dancing iwth the Stars. It was long overdue.

  6. Monique says:

    If Kate stays at home with her kids like she says she wants to, she would fade out of the public eye and she definitely doesn’t want taht. Can you blame her? Fame = money = more opportunities for herself.

  7. Jeff says:

    She has so much, but she cries and cries and cries. Sometimes when you cry too much everything is taken away then you have something to cry about. The Harris family is surviving on much less, but Kate wants to live it up.

  8. B. Carden says:

    good choice. she is definitely one of the most disliked women in America.

  9. Gosselin Fan says:

    Kate left with class and a load more fans. Go Kate!! Love Jon too.

  10. Cathy says:

    Kate may come off as cold and stiff and she certainly is no dancer but how can you say these things about her? None ofyou know her.

  11. Cathryn W. says:

    I’m with you Sandra and Allison. Why doesn’t the public see through her? She is a fake. She is not the one raising those 8 kids – she HAS to work so she can PAY THE NANNIES to stay with her kids and RAISE them while she lives the CELEBRITY LIFE. Wake up America!

  12. Leslie says:

    I have 3 children all under 5 and I can’t imagine having 8 children to care for. Give the woman a break and wish her the best raising those kids as a single parent. You may side with Jon Gosselin but he is a loser and a cad. As women you should empathize more with the Kate Gosselins of the world. At least she’s trying.

  13. Mary Kate & Jenna says:

    We watched DWTS because of Kate and we were sad to see her go.

  14. Estelle G. says:

    She is a greedy greedy, greedy selfish wretch and I don’t buy one ounce of her bullcrap.

  15. Josie says:

    Jon and Kate should be on this list. Not just Kate.

  16. Pat says:

    I wish she would quit pulling the “single mom” card. But how can she when people like Niecy Nash and Joy Behar and others have changed their minds about her and are now buying her act. Joy is usually so good at smelling the bullshit, but Kate is even better at pushing the bullshit. She has fooled everyone but not Whoopi. Whoopi got her number.

  17. Jamie says:

    She is not a single mother, she is a divorced mother with a husband who is still involved in the kids lives and pays child support. Also she has more help and financial means than most 2 income families and gets a lot of things paid for by TLC. Anyone who buys into her tears of “struggling” is an idiot.

  18. Sandra G says:

    There is nothing wrong about being a working mom. We all do it and don’t cry about it. Other than being a disgrace on the dance floor and whining about being a parent she manipulates the single parent card for America to feel sorry for her. She is not a single parent. Those kids have a father, and as much as we think we know what goes on behind closed doors, nobody can say for sure that Jon is not part of those kids’ lives. As a mother I feel disgusted by her attitude. There is nothing more incredible than being a parent; she makes it sound like a burden. She doesn’t deserve those kids or sympathy.

  19. Kirsten says:

    All you need to be a star these days is $1000 hair cuts, a devil-may-care attitude and a shocking dress sense. Okay, maybe an interested tabloid too.

    I watch Kate, and think, if you put all that PR and lighting and extensions on someone with real talent and beauty, you’d have a legend.

    We won’t get any more legendary talent if the American people’s taste doesn’t change.

  20. Dominica Dude says:

    You got a new reader , ME. And thank you for the great post!

  21. Borelli says:

    Kate Gosselin is passe. Next.

  22. Tara says:

    A dubious honor well deserved. I don’t buy her tears one bit. NOT ONE BIT.

  23. Saundra B. says:

    Kate is a working celebrity mom like so many other celebrities. Why is she being singled out for criticism when so many other celebrities are idolized for the same things she is doing. You are not being fair.

  24. Gabrielle says:

    I love the opening line of your commentary. Fred and Ginger would thank you too for separating them from dancing Kate’s two left feet. lol.

  25. Cheryl says:

    I never heard of the Harris sextuplet kids and I wonder why. They were obviously born before Kate and Jon’s sextuplets but never heard of them. Anyway, Kate deserves this jerk award. I wish she had to wear it on her forehead as part of the honor. She would probably definitely not want to be in the spotlight anymore.

  26. Dan C. says:

    Oh no Kate’s back on DWTS. No joke. She’s on the show finale at the end of May. Why,why, why?????? they’re looking for a ratings boost I guess.

  27. J.C. Jackson says:

    Say it ain’t so. Dancing partner Tony Dovolani is surely shakin in his boots. Poor Tony. Poor viewers. Poor kids. Ohhhh! sigh. :-(

  28. Brittani Trevillian says:

    Kate will soon be history. One can only hope.

  29. Eileen says:

    She’s just trying to stay relevant. Her celebrity days are numbered. I wish.

  30. Ina says:

    Very well said about the real intentions of this so called celeb, al real celeb is humble and grounded, and a person with true greatness never behaves so ‘eye-catching’. Well, I would say, Mr. Harris is the real ‘star’, because he works hard and raises his kids with less money but caring. So it is like fog, it disappears, as all the ‘fame’ can disappear suddenly. What’s it worth it to be in a newspaper or the yellow press? Nothing, and I am happy not to need that for my own happiness in life.

  31. Coco Chanelle says:

    Kate wishes she was size 8 but the only eight she will ever have is her shoe size. I dislike this fame seeking broad. Spot on.

  32. Meg says:

    Kate who?

  33. Vaughn L. says:

    Jon really messed up. If he only had waited Kate would have eventually self destruct but he was so bamboozled by free p***sy he went koo koo.

  34. Aqua Marine says:

    on this beautiful mothers day, someone please tell that weird woman she’s not all that as a celebrity. she needs to stay home with her 9 kids, oops 8 kids (john is not there no more). lol. kate start fresh and make everyday mothers day for your kids you love so much. boo hoo. :-(

  35. fearless says:

    yeah on this mother;s day jon’s mother should be ashamed of him. he lost his balls after he had all those kids. shame, shame, shame.

  36. KB says:

    You guys are way off if I can give my candid opinion. What has Kate done to any of you? It is Jon whose 15 minutes of fame is over. Jon needs to behave himself and get a life and so should you.

  37. Corinne says:

    Guys I love the blog. I spent my lunch hour today reading all the articles and the ones I did not get too I’ll read when before I go to bed. Keep up the good work. You guys were right on with Kate, I don’t get America not getting this rude obnoxious woman

  38. Sabrina says:

    Jon is no better than Kate. I feel veery sorry for the kids. I feel even sorrier for them having parents like Kate and Jon.

  39. Hope says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SEXTUPLETS. You’ve made it to 6 and you have a mommy that loves you no matter what.

  40. Joan J. says:

    Its the sextuplets birthdya? Well I for one think Kate is doing a great job. She’s my hero.

  41. veloni says:

    I like that family Kate and all. but Jon on the other hand should behave himself and leave those young fame seeking geeks alone.

  42. Ellene says:

    I think she’s teaching the kids wrong values. Fame and fortune isn’t all life is about. I am just wondering what those kids will say to both of them when they grow. I can’t imagine the kids like the current situation.

  43. Winchelle says:

    I am on the I can’t stand Kate bandwagon. She’s the queen of all media jerks.

  44. Jenny says:

    Leave Kate alone I like her. Take Jon instead he is jerk.

  45. JUST IN TIME says:

    Kate and Jon Gosselin are a great match – alley cat and street dog always on the hunt for their prey. Fame, fortune and more fame and fortune.

  46. big mama says:

    I really do feel sorry for Jon. I hated the way Kate treated him on the show and I know it was not staged for ratings, yes and most of us have forgotten what a b**ch she really is. I love he article you guys are so insightful and right on.

  47. Snucky says:

    She’s coming back to Dancing With The Stars? Please good Lord no.

  48. Erica says:

    That crying drives me nuts. Enough already. She should be doing commercials for that shampoo, ‘no more tears’ or for Visine.

  49. Snookums says:

    I blame the networks for ruining that family’s life. Because of their greed and ratings they totally wrecked them. They don’t care about Kate or the kids. As soon as she stops bringing in viewers they will dump her and her brood faster than a speeding bullet.

  50. Rock says:

    Where are Kate and Jon’s parents? Do they have family members who care about those poor kids.

  51. Vanessa says:

    If Jon would stay out of the spot light for a while and his ratings will come back, I think.

  52. Miss Muffett says:

    Kate, Kate, just go away. Please don’t come back another day.

  53. Alice C. says:

    haven’t heard much about kate gosselin lately and that’s just the way i like it thank you very much. :-)

  54. Latia Mudget says:

    Yeah , she’s been awful quiet. That’s dangerous. lol

  55. Sandra G says:

    Kate crying again? She should buy stock in Kleenex. There’s another money maker for her fake persona.

  56. sunshinegirl says:

    EXCELLENT choice. This woman gets on my last raw nerve.

  57. Wilburn Corso says:

    Well I ve rarely readed something funny and fascinating like this one ! Please, write more and let me know!

  58. Nick Bracht says:

    I loved every single word of this post! So true≥
