From purchasing a beautiful million dollar home and yachting in the South of France to working as a waiter and living in a modest cabin (without Internet or TV) in the woods… welcome to the real world, Jon Gosselin.
So nice to have you!
That's right! Years after starring in a wildly popular TV show and enduring a nasty divorce, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star is now serving food and drinks at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, PA.
You know how you totally forget some people even exist until they thrust themselves back into the news? Yeah, that's how I feel about Jon and Kate Gosselin. The reality stars with their brood of children are now more famous for their acrimonious divorce than their TLC reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8.
While Kate has traded her role as America's Sweetheart (I couldn't even type that with a straight face) for that of couponing queen, I do kind of miss Jon's Ed Harvey antics when he was palling around with Michael Lohan. Thanks to a new lawsuit, we may be seeing more of the dreadful duo!
Earlier this week, Kate Gosselin found herself at the center of controversy when the above photo took the internet by storm.
Twitter users furiously retweeted the photo, adding captions such as "Kate Gosselin mocks Asians" and "Kate Gosselin makes fun of Asians with 8 [part] Korean children," and the world was quick to label Kate a racist.
Via her blog, Kate has addressed the leaked controversial photo, insisting that it most definitely is not what it seems.
Rumor has it that the legally necessary edits to Robert Hoffman's tell-all book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, are almost complete. Kate doesn't like this, obviously, because she doesn't want the book to ever see the light of day again.
Now, according to RadarOnline, Kate wants ex-husband Jon Gosselin to go to jail (and lose the right to see their eight kids) for providingRobert Hoffman with the computer hard drive that contains Kate's own detailed accounts of her less-than-stellar parenting habits (to put it kindly).
To add a little humor to the situation, Kate Major, Jon's ex and now fiance to Michael Lohan, wants to testify as a character witness in Kate's favor.
Well, it appears the rumors were true! Kate Gosselin just can't go away…it's as if reality television is her own form of crack. This go-round, the former Jon and Kate Plus Eight star will be switching lives with Kendra Wlikinson for Celebrity Wife Swap. I guess ABC is taking a cue from Bravo's housewives' franchise and not requiring its "stars" to be actual wives…
The women will spend a week in the other's household, trying to maintain order with the family rules before implementing a system of her own. I can only imagine how drill sergeant Kate will fare when she returns home after laid back Kendra has been in charge!
Let's face it. No matter how hard the universe tries to dissuade her, Kate Gosselin's quest for a new reality TV show is never going to end.
Accused of child abuse? Kate's not spooked. Publicly humiliated by a coupon blog? No sweat off Kate's back. Hurricane Sandy unfairly coming between Kate and her hair salon? Well, that one almost brought her down. Obviously, Kate has priorities. Through it all, Kate keeps trying… and trying… and trying.
Reportedly, Kate and Kendra Wilkinson have participated in new reality show titled Mom Swap. According to Robert Hoffman, the author of (not for sale) Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, Kate's latest endeavor left her kids traumatized, which doesn't sound like Kate is completely believable.
Kate Gosselin isn't known for tact. Heck, she's really just known for having a ton of babies, at one point sporting a rooster haircut, and having an affair with a bodyguard I'm still not sure why she needs. But not tact. I mean, the woman hashtagged the hurricane under the phrase "SuperfunSandy." Sensitive much? Bless her heart.
Getting back to her infamous hair, the reality television loving mom of eight went from cock-a-doodle-do to coiffed 'do thanks to the Ted Gibson Salon. She got her sleek new look a few years ago after nearly twenty hours in the stylist's chair. We all know Kate likes to get things for free, but had she not gotten the complimentary hairdo it would have reportedly cost $7,000. It's no wonder she was so excited when her salon regained power after the super storm…because that's what's important in light of the devastation.
