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."

Aaaahhh…villains. Like in all things storytelling, no good tale works without a villain and a hero. And of course it's the villain who causes all the drama and gives the show its luster. Reality TV is the perfect place for a crazy, scheming, venomous nut job to crop up back stab, lie, and start trouble.
While the heroes get all the fans, the villains make the show. So here's to you, Reality TV villains. And without further ado, here is Reality Tea's list of Top 11 Reality TV Villains! There's just so many good ones.
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!
Look out Dancing With the Stars fans! The All-Stars edition is going to bring the drama…and the professional dancers’ A game.
Veteran pro Cheryl Burke is concerned about how to step up her game. It’s all about costumes, choreography, and celebrity. The three C’s I guess you could say. And Cheryl should know…three of the returning All-Stars graced the dance floor as partners with this pro.
Jon Gosselin probably thought his life would improve after divorcing Kate Gosselin, but unfortunately things have gone from bad to worse for the former reality star. While his ex-wife lives it up in a million-dollar home promoting coupons, it seems the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star is so flat broke he is forced to choose between child support and rent!
“I can’t afford to pay my rent and the domestic-relations staff tell me they will put me in jail unless I pay child support,” Jonconfesses to Star. Jon reportedly owes about $3600 in back child support.
Kate Gosselin will do just about anything to stay in the limelight and that includes proposing a new dating show! I imagine it will be titled ‘See Kate Date’.
The former star of Kate Plus Eight just can’t let go of famewhoring, apparently!
In response to the rumors that she is wrangling for a new series, commedian Jimmy Kimmel created a glimpse of what he thinks Kate‘s new show would entail. Warning: It’s hilarious and probably not all that far from the truth!
So without further ado, please pay attention to Escape From Gosselin Island!
