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!
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.
Kate Gosselin has been desperate for fame and attention ever since her reality show Kate Plus 8 was canceled. Well, now she's got it!
Recently Kate has been the subject of an unsavory tell-all book accusing Kate of child abuse among other damning things. Amazon was forced to pull the book after lawyers for Kate insists it is filled with invalidated, untrue information – and information which has been obtained from illegal means.
Author Robert Hoffman disputes those claims, insisting the material for Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World was procured legally and with thorough investigation. Robert claims he interviewed dozens of people connected with Kate and found her computer hard drive in the trash.
Well now sources are alleging that Robert, who happens to be friends with Jon Gosselin, got all his information from one source – and once source only: Jon!
Robert Hoffman's book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World has been pulled by Amazon. The tell-all book was available for purchase for only two days before two legal teams, Lavely & Singer and Williams & Connolly, each demanded that Amazon pull the book due to infringement rights.
After the Kate Gosselin child abuse allegations took the internet by storm last week, Robert came under fire as well. Many readers question how the reporter just happened to "find" Kate's personal journals and why he wrote a book instead of contacting Child Protection Services.
Robert says he found Kate's computer hard drives in the trash. The former US Weekly reporter says, "I can tell you that all of my information regarding Kate Gosselin used in the book was obtained by me personally through completely legal means."
Furthermore, Robert claims that only about 10% of the information in the book was taken from Kate's hard drive. "There is so much more that hasn't been revealed," Robert says. "I also have photographic evidence to back up my claims in the book."
Shocking new child abuse claims surrounding Kate Gosselinsurfaced today. Reporter Robert Hoffman alleges the Gosselin kids have suffered extreme forms of discipline at the hands of their mother. And, he says, he has written proof.
Hoffman was an employee of the Reading Eagle, which is the local paper in Gosselin Land,until 2007. Hoffman later went on to write for US Weekly.
At some point, Hoffman and Jon Gosselin became friends, which allowed him access to their home. Now, Hoffman claims he found one of Kate's journals. With all this information in hand, Hoffman has written a tell-all book about Kate titledKate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, which Kate's lawyers are attempting to block from being published.
“I don’t judge somebody for spanking, but what Kate wrote in her journal is just absolute violence,” Hoffman says. "She was beating 2-year-old babies in diapers."
Jon Gosselin was crying himself a river this week, telling anyone who’d listen that he was so broke and couldn’t pay his rent because his child support was so high. Well, turns out Jon was full of crap, as Kate waived his child support months ago!
After reading the story about Jon’s money woes, Kate’s attorney reached out to the media to say that he was whining over nothing because he doesn’t have to pay a DIME in support anymore for his kids!
