Kate Gosselin

While Kate Gosselin attempted to put on a happy face following news that her TLC show Kate Plus 8 had been cancelled, a new report is now stating that is far from the case.

According to the Hollybaby blog, Kate is “very depressed” by TLC’s decision and was blindsided by it.

“Kate didn’t even learn about the cancellation from TLC until a few minutes before the story broke,” reveals a source. Ouch. “Kate is devastated. She had no idea that her show was going to be cancelled, she thought this was something they’d film on and off until the kids went to college.”

Another source close to the TLC show echoes the same sentiment. “Kate thought the show would go on forever, she expected it to.” Unfortunately for Kate, ratings for the show fell sharply this season bringing in less than a million viewers per episode. This apparently wasn’t worth it to the TLC network, which reportedly pays the mom of eight a lot of money.

In the meantime, the sources reveal they do not know what Kate is planning to do next. “Kate doesn’t know what she’s going to do, she’s getting lots of offers but hasn’t settled on anything.”

Perhaps the next step in Katie’s life is becoming a stage mom a la pimpmomager Kris Jenner and Dina Lohan! Moments after her show was cancelled, Kate hinted on twitter that she has no plans to stop making money off her kids one of her eldest kids, 10-year-old Mady Gosselin, is interested in acting, specifically on the Disney channel!

“Aww that Mady… So well spoken! Wants to do MORE tv!!! Disney anyone? Lol” And when a fan tweeted her that “Mady is a star in the making,” Kate replied “AGREED! MADY SAYS ‘THANKYOU!’”

Kate also had an interesting response when a fan wondered if she planned on going back into nursing. Kate replied, “I plan on staying on tv :) but if I have to to provide for my 8 lovelies, of course!” She plans on staying on TV? How entitled is this woman??? Good luck with that Katie!

As for Kate’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin, he made it clear he no longer wants his plus eight to be on television. Jon revealed last week that he was “very relieved” the show was cancelled. “I hope they can have more private family moments,” said Jon. “I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?

Professional reality star Kate Gosselin is taking the news of her show being canceled rather well, or at least she’s pretending to be.

Just moments after the TLC network made the announcement yesterday that Kate Plus 8 had been canceled, Kate, 36, took to her twitter page (yes she has a twitter page – @Kateplusmy8) to give out a statement.

In a series of multiple tweets, Kate stated: “We’ve had a great run! Six years of whirlwind funfilled adventures thanks to TLC and our many many supportive &diehard fans! While it is very sad for me and the kids (there were many tears at the breakfast table this morning!), we are looking forward with great anticipation to our bright future!”

She continued, “As is very typical for me, I am choosing to see the positive in this situation and I am excited to consider the many more invigorating opportunities that may come my way! In the meanX, I hope 2have more time4motivational speaking, book writing &other fun work opportunities that come my way… And maybe even some dating??!! We wish our fans well.” As is very typical? Whatever helps you sleep at night Kate!

As for Kate’s ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, he is simply “very relieved” the show he used to be a part of is now over. “I hope they can have more private family moments,” Jon told RadarOnline. “I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future.”

When asked about Kate’s next moves, Jon reveals he has no idea what his ex-wife is planning to do now. “I have no clue what her next move is,” Jon said. “I hope she dedicates more time to the kids now and I wish her the best as she goes forward with whatever career she wants to pursue.”

TELL US – YOU BUYING KATE’S OPTIMISTIC ATTITUDE? DO YOU AGREE WITH JON THAT THIS IS BEST FOR THE KIDS?

Ding dong the witch is dead Kate Gosselin’s reality TV career is officially over!

Just moments ago, the TLC network announced it has canceled Kate’s reality show Kate Plus 8.

“TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8,” the network said in a statement. “By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future.”

The cancellation of Kate’s show comes as no surprise as we reported back in April that ratings for the show were at their lowest in years. At that time, new episodes of Kate Plus 8 were averaging just over 874,000 viewers per episode.

Earlier this year, a report came out stating – “If her ratings drop to the 1 million mark this will be her last season, and then Kate would have to get a real job.”

Well folks, it now appears Kate, 36, will indeed have to get a real J.O.B to care for her plus eight.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KATE’S SHOW BEING CANCELED? WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE’S GOING TO DO NOW?


With the ratings for her TLC show Kate Plus 8 continuing to decline, it appears Kate Gosselin would like to change the public perception of herself, you know, the one that has her as a “money-hungry b*tch.”

In an interview with the HuffingtonPost, Kate surprisingly reveals she is aware of what the public perceives her as being. “The biggest misconception is that I’m a money-hungry b*tch,” says Kate, “My friends come and tell me. They can’t take it.” She has friends???

Kate goes on to add that her friends and family get more upset about the negative rumors than she does. Really, she has friends?. “I have to tell them just ignore it, don’t read it,” says Kate. “You know it’s not true. I am very driven, very type-A, very hard-working, very perfectionist.”

Kate adds, “Every single person with that personality is accused of being self-absorbed, snobby and horrible. A bad impression is given because you are so driven. My mind is on the finish line. It’s an attractive quality as far as men are concerned.” Sure it is Katie.

Kate then goes on to issue a challenge to her naysayers, which is pretty much the entire universe, when she states you should meet her before judging her.

“I really have to tell you I enjoy the challenge of meeting people personally and changing their opinion of me,” reveals Kate. “Because it happens 100 percent of the time.” Uh uh.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KATE’S COMMENTS? YOU BUYING WHAT SHE’S SELLING?

Kate Gosselin is looking for love and is passive aggressively finally getting along with ex-husband Jon Gosselin for the sake of the couple’s eight children. She opens up about her new arrangement with Jon and her checklist for a potential mate in a series of recent interviews. So, Kate’s on a media blitz again…did I miss a new book she’s promoting?

On Monday, Kate, who is pictured above yesterday leaving the Today Show in New York City, appeared on Access Hollywood, bantering awkwardly with Billy Bush. When asked about any current relationships, Kate reveals that she has a hard time letting her guard down and her suitors are few and far between. Schmoozing Billy, she responds, “It’s like I’m promoting a dating show, [but] I’m not,” and she asks his co-host, “Do you have any single friends?”

Billy Bush compares Kate to Angelina Jolie in regards to a mother with mutliple children trying to find lasting love. I think Kate’s head may explode. Kate admits she’d like an older man, someone in his forties, driven, smart, and hot. Billy believes Kate would have better luck if she’d “start making out a little.” Sorry, Jon…it doesn’t look like a reconciliation is in store for you.

And speaking of Jon, Kate hasn’t been silent on him either. In the same interview, Kate touches on Jon’s recent endeavors, as well as his time with the kids. She takes a subtle shot at Jon points out, “He is actually making an effort for the four days a month he has [the] kids. I do wish he would see them more, but that is what he has chosen. The kids would like to see him more. So at least it’s consistent. Anytime he wants them more he can have them more and he knows that.” Wow, that sounds a tad harsh, but also it sounds as if maybe Jon should see those children more.

Kate however sang a different tune to People, stating, “The kids enjoy spending time with [Jon]. They wish he would see them more, but as long as they come home happy – and more or less they do – I’m okay with that, so that’s good.” Still a tad biting, but a little better, nonetheless. She continues saying, “It’s just naturally gotten more peaceful, which is good,” while citing the couple’s very different parenting styles.

The mother of eight returns to her dating criteria, reiterating, “I want somebody who is older…I can’t be bothered with these little boys.” Ouch. However, she does concede that dating isn’t her be-all-end-all goal. “I’m at the point where I’m like, ‘Okay, there’s got to be somebody out there who would work. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be. And if not, then whatever. I’m happy as I am.” It’s a good attitude to have…let’s just hope Kate means it, and that she and Jon continue (start?) to make those children a priority. Regardless, I’m betting they both hope you tune in to the new season of Kate Plus Eight, this coming Monday at 10 ET on TLC.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK KATE WILL FIND HER IDEAL MAN? SHOULD SHE STOP TALKING ABOUT JON TO THE PRESS?

Jon and Kate Gosselin have (shockingly) managed to stay out of the spotlight lately. And while their brood adds up to eight little ones, it seems Jon isn’t done doing the math yet.

Sources are reporting that Jon would like to have (even) more children with his new girlfriend Ellen Ross. While sources close to Jon confirm the news, he gave a more coy answer to In Touch magazine. “Basically, we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it,” he said, adding that marriage plans are a possibility too. Jon also stated that he is very much in love with Ellen.

Meanwhile, E Online is reporting that a judge ordered Kate to pay more than $10,000 in fees to marriage counselor Sylvia Lafair. Lafair sued Kate back in April, claiming Kate retained her services to help the Gosselins through a rough patch in 2009. Kate flew the therapist out to California to counsel the couple. Lafair sent bills for her counseling sessions and travel expenses to both Kate and Jon, but was never paid by Kate.

Kate claims that Lafair was not providing couples counseling, but instead was working solely with Jon. Kate further asserts that Jon went as far as to refuse to accompany her to California without Lafair present. The judge wasn’t buying it, and including court fees, Kate must pay $10,476 in restitution to the therapist. Sources say that Kate won’t go quietly, and will likely appeal the verdict.

Oddly enough, it seems Lafair is still working with Jon but now touting herself as his life coach. Not one to miss out on her fifteen minutes of fame an opportunity to discuss Jon’s progress in his recent relationship with Ellen, Lafair is speaking out on Jon’s behalf in a recent In Touch interview. The therapist thinks Jon is ready to add to his breadwinners family.

She believes that after the public break-up of his marriage, Jon has finally found a partner in 24-year-old Ellen. Lafair reveals, “Going through our total leadership connections program, Jon began to find himself and then he found Ellen. He is experiencing life in a much more solid way.”

Lafair explains, “It’s not about the number [of kids], but about the capacity to love and do the right thing. I think they would be wonderful parents and it would give Jon an opportunity to parent with a partner. Partner parenting is an amazing thing for kids that are able to have that in their lives.”

So more kids for Jon? It seems too early to make that call, but I do hope that the “counseling” he has received from Sylvia Lafair is worth every penny Kate is paying for it.


No more Kate Gosselin on your televisions? Yes, that is now a very strong possibility today thanks to the very low ratings of her TLC reality show.

If you recall, it was reported earlier this month that Kate’s show Kate Plus 8 would be cancelled by TLC if the ratings continued to take a dive. “If her ratings drop to the 1 million mark this will be her last season, and then Kate would have to get a real job,” said a TV producer to Popeater right before the season premiere.

And all seemed to be well as the premiere ratings of the show’s new season brought in 1.3 million viewers. Well, fast forward to today and the ratings have taken a sharp dive, as in fallen well below the 1 million mark.

The April 18th episode of Kate Plus 8 only managed to bring in a mere 874,000 viewers according to TVByTheNumbers. And folks, it was an all new episode and not a rerun. Shocking when you compare those numbers to the staggering 10 million viewers that tuned in for the episode in which Jon and Kate formally announced their divorce less than 2 years ago. Even more shocking when you consider the tremendous promotion Kate did to promote the show including an appearance on the Today Show.

And the week before, the show only managed to bring in 1.214 million viewers. The ratings for this week’s episode have yet to come out but it’s safe to say Kate is in serious danger of – gasp – having to get a real J-O-B.

The same report from earlier this month stated Kate was scared to get a real job and was going all out for the current season. With only 874,000 viewers, it might be a good time for Kate to spring out that old nursing degree.

TELL US – ARE YOUR SHOCKED AT THE LOW RATINGS? IS KATE’S REALITY CAREER OVER A LA JON?

With the ratings of her TLC show continuing to decline, a new report states Kate Gosselin is worried about having to get a real job.

According to Popeater, Kate, 36, is going all out for the new season of her show in hopes that it will be a big success. “This season Kate has been told to bring her A-game,” a TV producer tells Popeater. “If her ratings drop to the 1 million mark this will be her last season, and then Kate would have to get a real job.”

Ratings for Kate Plus 8, her TLC show following her divorce from Jon Gosselin, has steadily averaged 1.6 million viewers per episode. A far cry from the staggering 10 million viewers that tuned in for the episode in which Jon and Kate formally announced their divorce.

“You are going to see Kate spend another night camping, but this time without Sarah Palin. You will see her explore Sydney, meet with aboriginals and even swim with sharks in an attempt to win back viewers,” adds the source.

Another source assures Popeater that TLC is still Team Kate. “TLC hadn’t really done ‘Kate Plus 8′ in a series way until now — it was just sporadic specials that people had trouble finding,” the source says. “TLC does believe in her.”

However, it seems Kate does have reason to be worried as the Monday night premiere episode of Kate Plus 8 only brought in 1.3 million viewers.

In other Kate news, TMZ is reporting that Kate is being sued after failing to pay $10,476 for marriage counseling services back in 2009.

Despite getting her divorce from Jon finalized in December 2009, it seems Kate had previously requested that one of the Pennsylvania-based counselors of Creative Energy Options company “fly to Los Angeles to perform marriage counseling, then refused to pay for service or travel fees.”

The company’s president, Dr. Sylvia Lafair, told TMZ they had reached out to Kate several times, but that she has yet to make any payments.
