Well, those 12 people who signed up to cruise with former reality star Kate Gosselin this August are going to be realllly disappointed. Royal Caribbean announced today that the event has been canceled.
The president of the cruise line shared with Radar Online that all of the fans who signed up for the big trip featuring the former Kate Plus 8 star have been refunded their money. “Yes, that event has been canceled. We just didn’t get the turnout that we desired and mutually we agreed that if we didn’t get it, we would cancel. All ticket purchasers have been notified and everyone has been refunded. Some have chosen to continue on with the cruise, but everyone was given the choice.” CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON FOR MORE!
It appears that reality television has become synonymous with deadbeat parents. In the latest, Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin continue to battle it out over their eight children and this time Twitter got involved!
Last week, Kate received a suspicious tweet from a follower who apparently joined twitter for the sole purpose of asking Kate about her custody issues with Jon. “is it true Jon going to court next week for nonpayment of child support?;” the user inquired. Kate was completely shocked and seemingly had no idea Jon had plans to head to court! “I don’t know if he’s going to court but wouldn’t surprise me…. How do you know this stuff?!?;” Kate asked in reply.
The user went on to accuse Jon of being a deadbeat dad, saying he was months behind on child support; revealing that Jon owes $40 per day for all eight of his children and his monthly payment is a mere $1200.
As for how the user was privy to this very private information – she claims that her niece works in the PA court system and she saw the file. Well, um… seriously I think this spells firing for a certain niece. Aunt of the year, right here!
To her credit, the formerKate Plus 8 star refused to discuss the situation, telling the user: “Woah….I’m not allowed to talk about orders from the court.…”
The user, who has no identifying information, seemingly created the account for the sole purpose of revealing this information.
Jon did not address the accusations, but did take to twitter to advise others not to ask him about the situation. “stop posting about stupid court sh*t. Consider your sources people. Dont need drama during the holiday. Thx,” he wrote.
TELL US – IS JON A DEADBEAT DAD? WAS THIS TWITTER ACCOUNT LEGIT OR STARTED JUST TO SLAM JON?
The drama between the reality tv exes reignited on Friday, March 23 when Kate decided to slam a local company she and Jon used to do business with on Twitter, accusing them of using her name for a product without her permission. Jon, then apparently, called the company to apologize, according to a posting by the company on their Facebook page, which appeared to make Kate even more irate!
A fan then tweeted to Kate: “I am a divorced mom and try not to diss my ex for sake of my daughter. Why do you diss Jon so often. not sure how that helps.”
Kate responded with: “If u knew what I know, u’d b AMAZED at my restraint! I don’t say neg stuff oft, but wrong is wrong & It should not b rewarded!” Yikes. Kate has since deleted the tweet, which was caught by Radar Online.
Jon, then got in on the action, tweeting: “Awesome day today, looking forward to the weekend. Long & interesting week, haha. so fortunate to live a simple life now! drama free.”
But, Jon got a bit nasty when a fan asked him if he and Kate missed each other. Jon responded: “Hahahahaha, best joke of the night, r u kidding me, really?” Ouch. Jon has also deleted his later tweet. Doesn’t appear the bitter feelings between these exes will be ending anytime soon!
Meanwhile, the National Enquirer is reporting that Kate, whose TLC show Kate Plus 8 got cancelled last year due to low ratings, continues to desperately try to pimp get her plus 8 back on our TVs!
The latest alleged attempt by Kate, is trying to get some of her kids on Lifetime’s hit Dance Moms, which just happens to film in her state of Pennsylvania. In fact, the Dance Moms studios are within driving distance of Kate’s home.
“Kate is obsessed with keeping her family in the limelight, and she’s been in serious talks with the Lifetime series’ producers to incorporate her daughters into the show,” a source told The Enquirer. “She thinks ‘Dance Moms’ is the perfect vehicle for getting her girls back in front of the TV cameras, and hopefully will lead to bigger opportunities for all the Gosselins.”
Kate is of course denying the report, recently tweeting, “Anything you read in the natl enquirer is lies..Especially one with my name and dance moms together! Seriously? You had to ask?”
If Dance Moms were even interested in having Kate’s kids on the show, she would have a hard time with that since Jon has stated in the past, he no longer wants his kids on television.

Kate Gosselin‘s finances are in the hot seat again! The mom of many, who just cannot be without her $2k Ted Gibson extensions and her gigolo bodyguard, Steve Neild, is allegedly under tremendous financial strain since the cancellation of her unpopular reality show, Kate Plus 8!
The aspiring pimpmomager has been hard at work shilling coupons and running marathons, but, apparently, it’s not enough! Rumors have surfaced that Kate is all but broke and is forced to host a Royal Caribbean Cruise this summer because she is “strapped for cash.” Yeah – what a horrible job. Ugh. I so feel for you, Kate.
“The last thing Kate wants to do is hang out with complete strangers,” a source tells HollyBaby. “She’s doing it for a free vacation and because she needs money desperately.” Kate has mentioned more than once that one of her big concerns about being dumped by TLC is the lack of luxury vacations! Why do I think a Kate Gosselin Cruise is not going to be the company’s best-selling trip? Do you think she’ll spend the entire week having meltdowns, screaming over pizza, and ordering the vacationers around so they can have the authentic Kate-perience?
And Kate is not letting go of her TV stardom dreams. “Kate wants her own show, a talk show, but it’s just not panning out,” the source explains. “Kate doesn’t know what’s next, but she’s doing whatever she can to make money for her and the kids.”
News of her depleted financial state has had many fans questioning just how she affords such luxury items as a bodyguard, particularly when Kate was all but begging her Twitter followers to help her afford the five laptops she needed to buy for her children! “Steve works for Kate for free,” the source reveals. “If she ever pays him, it’s the bare minimum.”
Kate is apparently trying to drum up sympathy for her financial plight by taking to twitter to work the single mom angle. Despite telling Dr. Drew in a recent interview that she now has an amicable relationship with ex-husband Jon Gosselin, who is much more involved in their childrens’ lives, Kate is still trashing him – albeit indirectly. And she is insinuating she needs money to pay for her children’s necessities because she is raising her kids alone!
Apparently, one fan had enough, writing: “If only I had that money! Surely she has the money from her TV show to buy five laptops.”
“do u personally no how exp raising 8 kids alone is?Didnt think so..didn’t any1 teach u nvr 2 assume u no some1 else’s $ situation?;” Kate responded. That prompted other tweeters to wonder just how the divorced mother became a single one, being that Jon is still there and very much involved in his kids’ lives. “Kate, you are NOT raising kids alone. Don’t lie. Also many moms here know what it’s REALLY like to raids kids alone,” one user seethed. Yikes!
Jon has not commented back, but an irate Kate went on a blocking rampage and encouraged fans to ignore and block these so-called negative users. Is she hanging out with Jill Zarin these days?
Speaking of Kate’s rampant follower,s the egotistical wannabe A-lister has now coined a name for her illustrious fans. “How many more of u are ‘Gosselinators'(a new term that I think means majorly dedicated truly devoted fans4life)?;” Kate wondered on twitter. She got one reply. Right – so Gosselinators… that’s just… sad. I prefer Gosselinista, myself!

IS KATE BROKE OR JUST DESPERATE FOR ATTENTION? IS IT WRONG FOR HER TO ASK FANS TO HELP HER BUY THINGS FOR HER CHILDREN? THOUGHTS ON THE NEW TERM “GOSSELINATOR”?
Did anyone else totally forget about Kate Gosselin? Cause I know I did! Not to worry, she’s back and she’s reminding us that she’s here and she really isn’t getting enough attention!
Appearing on Dr. Drew‘s Lifechangers (exactly how many shows does this man have?), despite the rumors that she is dating bodyguard Steve Neild, Kate opened up about being single and ready to mingle! I hear Match.com is working for people, Kate! “I am lonely,” says the former Kate Plus 8 star. “I clean up the house, put kids to bed, and there I sit. Ideally I would find that person – I don’t know if I feel ready for that.”
Kate admits it’s really difficult to have a love life in between raising eight kids and talking about couponing. “The odds are so against me, one mom and eight kids,” Kate admits. “I think a lot of my friends, who are being constructive, say, ‘Gosh, who are you going to meet that is going to be able to deal with eight kids?’ My answer is always if they can deal with eight kids in our situation, it probably will be the person.”
While Kate’s love tank may be empty, she says things have improved with ex-husband and former nemesis, Jon Gosselin. The two are actually getting along! “He basically lives his life and I live mine. It’s more peaceful,” Kate revealed. “Possibly he’s working now and so he feels like he’s living a regular life again and maybe a little happier with himself, so that boils down to peace between us. The kids are now okay going there.”
“I feel like he’s trying again. That’s good. The bottom line is the kids come home basically happy and that’s all that matters,” Kate says of Jon’s recently improved parenting skills.
Why do I feel like a stint on Relationship Rehab is next for Kate?
Meanwhile, Jon, who recently split from his long-term girlfriend Ellen Ross, reveals he’s enjoying being a single dad! “Being a single dad with no interruptions has really brought me closer to my children: I really feel being a single dad has improved my self-awareness and well-being,” Jon tells Star Magazine.
And when it comes to possible trying the knot again in the future, Jon admits he’s nowhere ready for that. “I still have a lot of work to do on myself, and I am an extremely busy person, between work and the children,” he told Star. “My family is the most important thing in my life. I will strive to make it better for them every day.”

DO YOU BELIEVE KATE IS LONELY OR JUST CRAVING THE SPOTLIGHT AGAIN? ARE YOU HAPPY KATE AND JON HAVE WORKED OUT THEIR DIFFERENCES AND ARE GETTING ALONG?
Attention eligible bachelors, Kate Gosselin is still single and available!
Weeks after a report stated the formerKate Plus 8 star had a new beau in her life, Kate is now denying she is seeing anyone.
Talking to OK! magazine, Kate, 36, dismisses the gossip as “fabricated and totally false.” She stressed: “Unless my running shoes, kitchen utensils or wrapping paper are considered ‘dates,’ I have not been on any.” Aww poor Katie! At least she has her bodyguard Steve Neild to err, you know, “protect” her!
The mother of eight is, however, keeping her chin up as she reflects on the year 2011 and reveals her resolutions for the New Year in her latest blog for Couponcabin.com.
“The main thing that the end of a year causes me to do is to reflect on what I’ve learned that year,” wrote Kate. “The year of 2011 for me was a year of gaining complete independence, and learning to look for solutions in every situation instead of focusing on the problems.”
“I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions because I’m not one to make drastic changes just for the sake of making them or just because the calendar starts over,” blogged Kate before going on to share her super exciting resolutions! And no, stop being the b-word wasn’t one of them! “However, I do aim for certain things as I organize and prioritize my life all year long. For example, I make goals to fix or finish certain projects around the house, goals for giving the kids certain life experiences and fitness and career goals for myself.”
Kate reflects more on what she learned in the last year: “I also learned to step back and survey the situation before acting on something. For the most part, this has worked and overall I feel more peaceful and more confident that I can handle whatever life throws at me. I’ve also noticed my kids are becoming problem solvers, too, which is very encouraging!”
She adds, “I’ve always said that I don’t live apologetically; I live passionately! A great way to do that is to learn from the past and make it better in the future.”
And finally, the mom of eight also recently revealed she wants back on TV her own fitness show!
Last weekend, Kate took to her Twitter page to let fans know that her own fitness show would be a dream come true! “A fitness show would be a dream come true,” tweeted Kate, who recently ran a marathon. “Not for me only but a way to reach ALL moms who desire fitness but don’t know how!”
No word yet on whether or not her plus 8 would make cameos on the said fitness show.

TELL US – DO YOU SEE A NEW MAN IN KATE’S LIFE IN 2012? THOUGHTS ON HER REFLECTIONS & RESOLUTIONS? WOULD YOU WATCH A KATE FITNESS SHOW?
Attention All: Kate Gosselin is dating! That’s right — the divorced mom of eight long been rumored to be having an affair with her very married bodyguard Steve Neild, is dating someone — and it’s not Steve!
According to HollyBaby, Kate has been on several dates with a mystery man who is possibly her boyfriend! “Kate has been set up on many blind dates,” a source reveals. “But finally one guy has caught her eye.”
“He’s not in showbiz but she met him at an event. The two have been quietly seeing each other but she hasn’t introduced him to the kids.” While Kate is on the dating scene again, the former star of Kate Plus 8 may have ulterior motives because HollyBaby is also reporting that Kate is jealous of her ex-husband Jon Gosselin‘s relationship with Ellen Ross!
Apparently, the Gosselin kids “love” Ellen which has Kate steaming with jealousy! “Kate’s kids are starting to ask about Ellen and talk about her to Kate,” a source discloses. “They think Ellen is so funny, and they ask Kate if their dad is going to marry Ellen.” A photo of Jon and Ellen is below!
“Kate can’t stand that the kids like Ellen,” the source added. “Kate wants the kids to not think of Ellen as a stepmother, it drives Kate crazy. Kate doesn’t like the kids getting close to her and she refuses to accept Ellen.” Well, perhaps Kate can get over her preoccupation with Ellen by focusing on her new man!
ARE YOU HAPPY FOR KATE THAT SHE IS FINALLY DATING? DOES KATE NEED TO ACCEPT THAT JON HAS MOVED ON AND IS SERIOUS WITH ELLEN?
The rumors that Kate Gosselin is having an affair with her long-time bodyguard Steve Neild have been swirling for a while, but is there some truth to the gossip? I mean, Kate is apparently worried over her finances given that she no longer has a “real” job, yet she is still keeping Steve on the pay roll? Sounds fishy to me!
After being caught on what seemed like a romantic date without Kate’s eight, In Touch Weekly is reporting that the two looked quite cozy during an intimate dinner last month. “They were smiling and laughing,” an onlooker reports. “They definitely looked like a couple.”
Kate has long denied any romantic relationship with Steve, telling the Today show: “There is no affair. There never has been an affair;” claiming they are just “very good friends.” However, viewers of her former show Kate Plus 8 can attest that there were certainly some sparks (remember the pizza meltdown of the final season? yikes!)
Even her ex-husband Jon Gosselin has added to the rumors that Kate and Steve are a little more than just friends. “I speculate, but I don’t know — that’s a general feel,” Jon told Good Morning America. “You know, almost like when they were traveling together, I felt jealous. Here I’m Mr. Mom. And then there’s some other guy traveling with my wife.” And he was wondering just what kind of protection Steve was providing for his then wife! “Whether it’s protection or not, it’s all in — it’s in the back of my mind.”
Indeed, an insider is telling the mag that Kate and Steve definitely have a relationship! “Kate and Steve take long, lingering walks and even stay in the same room when they travel.” On a recent trip to Chicago the pair was definitely acting like a couple, and Steve also accompanied Kate on a recent trip to Australia! “Kate doesn’t hide her feelings for Steve,” the insider adds.”They’re not ashamed of their relationship.” But perhaps they should be!
For those of you who are thinking ‘good for Kate for finding a man!’ think again as Steve is actually a married man (who is often spotted sans wedding ring)! Steve’s wife of 20 years, Gina must not be too pleased by the amount of time he spends with a woman other than his wife. When In Touch attempted to contact Gina for her opinion on Kate’s relationship with her husband, she hung up! “She must be outraged,” a friend informed the mag. Kate has also claimed to be “good friends” with Steve’s wife, but somehow I doubt that! A photo of Gina Neild is below.
DO YOU BELIEVE THE RUMORS? DO YOU BELIEVE KATE WOULD REALLY HAVE AN AFFAIR?
