Kate Plus 8 Cancelled?


After pleading for television gigs and insisting that she will never be able to provide for her brood turned up nothing, it seems mom of many, Kate Gosselin is taking her ex-husband’s advice and returning to nursing.

Kate, 36, tried and tried some more to become a TV star in her own right, even pitching television show ideas, but no job offers apparently came in, so with no where else to turn she is eating humble pie and pulling on some scrubs!

I know! Poor patients! If you recall, free bitch Jon Gosselin publicly chastised Kate’s refusal to let go of a life as a C-List celebrity; reminding her “reality TV is not a career.” Encouraging the woman who was his former partner in fame grubbing to “Get back to normal life, simple life, provide for your family, and go from there.”

After months and months of hanging onto the delusion that people want to see her mug on their TV screens screaming at her kids and throwing tantrums giving parenting advice or hosting talk shows, Kate has accepted it’s not going to happen. According to Life & Style the former terror of Kate Plus 8 has completed courses to renew her nursing Incense as a labor-and-delivery nurse. Pregnant women of Pennsylvania, you have been warned!

“She just completed more courses to renew her license,” a ‘friend’ reveals to Life & Style.”She has no clue how she’ll continue to pay for the kids’ private school and living expenses,” adds the pal of Kate’s decision to reconsider nursing ( though she has yet to find a job in that field either!).

Kate has laughed off claims that the family is rolling in the dough and became filthy rich through the series. “I read what we apparently make and it’s hysterical,” she told The Huffington Post. “[I've saved] for a little while. People think we made gazillions of dollars, and we didn’t.”

However previously released accounts of Kate’s monthly expenses don’t paint the portrait of a woman living on modest means! It’s been reported she spends as much as $500,000 per year on staff alone! She needs to employ that full-time bodyguard! For her safety…

“The bottom line is I have eight kids to provide for,” Kate recently admitted and I guess that is the bottom line. Although I find it very hard to believe Jon and Kate saved no money after several seasons on a very successful (at one point) reality show and several other accompanying endorsements, books, and media deals. I guess Kate’s GTH (Gym, Tan, Hair) regiment really costs a lot!

Do you believe Kate will actually return to nursing or is this just a last ditch effort to get networks interested in her plight? Is Kate desperate for attention or work?

UPDATE – So much for Kate Gosselin getting back to nursing and more importantly, getting off our TVs! Kate actually took to her twitter page to deny she is returning to nursing. “No truth,” tweeted Kate. “Renewed license when up for renewal. And that got it all going!”

Well, since she doesn’t have her one, true love aka reality TV, Kate Gosselin, formerly of Kate Plus 8 is drowning her sorrows in her white wine sitting at home, miserable and alone, waiting for the next on-camera gig to come calling!

Apparently while her 8 are at school, the cameras have disappeared, and she can no longer afford to shop away her boredom since she has “no firm job offers on the table,” Kate has become “depressed,” a source tells HollyBaby.com. Kate is “trying to come up with things to do,” the source explains, “but she’s miserable.”

Obliviously not handing the termination of her show well, Kate has no intentions of taking ex-husband Jon Gosselin‘s advice to embrace the “simple life,”and is seeking another job in front of the camera ASAP. Hey, she doesn’t want to have to add “Has-Been Reality Star” to her resume!

Kate, who wore a ‘Desperate For Camera Time’ sign throughout her barrage of TV interviews following TLC’s cancellation notice, “thought she’d get a job immediately or be offered to take her reality show to another network but she’s getting a wakeup call,” the source discloses.

Kate is apparently passing the time by “working on her website,” the recently launched KatePlusMy8.com, which offers advice to mothers from a woman who knows about raising kids without round the clock childcare, housekeeping, and private schools and gives fans (haha!) a glimpse into her life following cable TV! Unfortunately for Kate, so far the website has proven to be a paltry endeavor since people aren’t that interested in reading about what Kate eats for dinner or seeing her continue to make money off her children.

As for job prospects, the source reveals that Kate expects to be offered a spot hosting The Talk, but she is “still firming up the details” and even if she gets the job, “She would only host it for a week but then what?”

Not having stable income is a big deal for the fired mom of many, who recently Tweeted that she spends $700 a week on “organic” groceries feeding her brood! Well, Kate since you also spend $700 week on tanning, exercising, and hair dying that may have been where your trouble started! My question is: where is her bodyguard – isn’t he around to entertain her?

Do you feel sorry for Kate or are you tired of her pleas for attention? Should Kate attempt to get a real job and take ex-hubby Jon’s advice to embrace the simple life?

Kate Gosselin is grasping at purse strings – literally – to keep herself on television. Her newest scheme to get the viewing public to extend her 15 minutes is to cry about how much she needs the money and TV is the only possible way to support her children in the lifestyle she they have become accustomed to!

Last night was the final episode of Kate Plus 8, so expect Kate to be all over the media pedalling her story to anyone willing to listen in the hopes of procuring a TV gig! The wannabe C-List celebrity says she is concerned about her children, as supposedly upon being told TLC canceled the show “Their first comment was, ‘No more fun trips?’” Kate says. “For them, no more job for Mom means no more trips, no more fun.”

“I read what we apparently make and it’s hysterical,” Kate tells The Huffington Post. “That would be a dream come true times two million. So it’s certainly way less than people think. We are not set for life. You know I need to work as soon as possible — as in yesterday.” Kate continues, explaining: “[I've saved] for a little while. People think we made gazillions of dollars, and we didn’t.”

While Kate insists that she’s “saved,” it sounds like her definition of saving is the same one used by RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice, because a quick peek at her reported yearly expenses (not including gym and tanning!) is not painting the picture of a hard-working mom just trying to provide for her family! Let’s have a look, shall we?

Staff: Kate employs two housekeepers, two full-time nannies, a personal assistant, and a bodyguard! Well, he’s “technically” a bodyguard… The total bill for her hired help? $500,000 per year!

Hair: Kate gets her hair cut, colored, and styled by celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson (and a quick look at his celebrity client roster leaves me wondering why he bothers with Kate), who also stars on What Not To Wear. Allegedly Kate spent $2,000 on one trip to the stylist’s NYC salon! Now times that by how many trips she makes per year!

Home: Kate owns a massive 6,000 square foot, five-bedroom, 1.3 million estate in Wernersville, PA which sits on 24 acres!

School: To put 8 children through private school at $5,000 per month, the yearly tab totals: $500,000!

Shopping: Apparently, Ms. Gosselin who is often photographed with a slew of shopping bags, is quite the shopaholic. And while TLC often picked up the tab for her fashion binges during filming, now she may have to *gasp* stop buying countless inappropriate halter tops and shortie-shorts.

Kate describes herself as a “worker,” recalling that she went back to work when her children were 15-months-old. And singing a very different tune from last week, when she called average jobs like nursing “mediocre,” she now begrudgingly states she’d go back to nursing: “If nothing comes up, I’ll do it. But the scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn’t let me continue to provide well for me eight kids.” Well, given how much she is spending on hair, I doubt nursing is going to let her provide for herself – let alone her children!

Kate is also adamant that she won’t be changing her childrens’ lifestyle, as she informed us last night, during the show’s final episode. “I refuse to pull them out of their house. I refuse to pull them out of their school, so I better figure something out to keep them there.”

Kate insists she’s not “bitter” that TLC pulled the plug, even though she would like to finish one (or 10) more seasons. “I like to finish things until they are done but they make their decisions for their reasons and I will move onto bigger and better things,” she explains. “I have a lot of stuff I could be bitter about but I don’t waste time.”

Thoughts on Kate’s expenses and her desperate measures to stay in the public eye? Did you watch the final episode?

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned – by reality TV!

Kate Gosselin, soon-to-be former star of TLC’s Kate Plus 8, is spitting mad after ex-husband and former co-star, Jon Gosselin called her out on her perpetual quest for C-List celebritydom. Slamming Kate’s aspirations to be the next Kris Jenner, Jon advised: “Reality television is not a career. Get back to normal life, simple life, provide for your family, and go from there.”

Well Kate isn’t willing to retire retaliated, of course, by calling out Jon’s parenting – even though hers basically consists of hiring a bevy of nannies while she works out, tans, and buys $50,000K two-seater sports cars. During a Today Show interview with Matt Lauer, Kate remarked: “It’s a situation where Jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids by working a regular job, but I want the best for my kids and to give them the best opportunity.”

Kate continued to deride Jon’s aspirations of a normal childhood for his children by stating: “It would have to be the right [show], but the best opportunity would be me continuing in TV for my kids,” she said. “If the right thing came along, I’m sure you will see my kids at some point.” As for the end of their her show, Kate wants everyone to know she’s not just using her children for money and attention; it’s her career.

“There’s fear because this has been the start of my career and my job and how I’ve been providing for my kids for six years.” What she really means to say is this is how TLC has been providing for her kids for six years!

Kate confirmed: “I think at this point, the best opportunity for all of us would be me continuing on TV as a way to provide for my kids. Something that’s exciting and challenging for me has been TV, and I wouldn’t be opposed to it. I’m sure you will see my kids again at some point.”

After Kate’s snarking received backlash from the public, she is now recanting her statements, claiming Jon isn’t so bad after all – it’s just his career choice that is. Kate Tweeted: “2clarify re ‘mediocre’ – I meant this job is not a career acc 2 jon but tv is 4 me & is hard but will prov best opps 4 my kids vs nursing!” If you can decipher the Twit-diction.

Well a fan snapped back, wondering if TV was the new qualifier for a exceptional parenting: “So, because my husband and I aren’t on tv constantly like @Kateplusmy8 , we’re only providing a “mediocre” life for our daughter?” Prompting Kate to reply: “That’s not wut I said @all. Was responding 2jons comment only re ME getting a ‘normal’ job–which would not work$ bc I hav 8!” She needs television to feed and clothe her 8 children!

Don’t expect Kate to go away anytime soon, because remember TV is her J-O-B and her fans need her! “I feel sad for fans, because they’re devastated,” she explained to Matt Lauer. “They’re saying, you know, you’re the neighbor moving far away and we won’t see you again.”

But fret not as Kate promises she and her plus 8 will return! She also feels bad for fans who might be “devastated” over the show cancellation. “I feel sad for fans, because they’re devastated,” said Kate. “They’re saying, you know, you’re the neighbor moving far away and we won’t see you again.” Not delusional at all that Kate!

Thoughts on the latest Jon vs. Kate drama? Whose side are you on? Are you ready for Kate to retire or would you watch her on another TV show?

America’s headache sweetheart Kate Gosselin, who graces the cover of People magazine in an interview in which she fears for the future of her eight children now that her reality show on TLC has been cancelled, is now receiving some choice words from her ex-husband Jon Gosselin.

After Kate revealed to the world that she was scared for the well-being of her family, her former punching bag door mat media whore cradle robber now normal ex-husband doled out some tough love, reminding the trained nurse (What? She didn’t go to school to be a fame-grubbing reality star?) that “[r]eality TV is not a career.” He urges his one time love to “[g]et back to a normal life — a simple life. Provide for your family.”

Jon continues, giving some positive support to Kate (although not the kind she’s looking for as it doesn’t involve paparazzi, networks, or a magazine spread). He says, “Things will work out the way they should work out. Obviously there are families out there that have several kids – people work normal jobs and things work out. Everything is possible.”

Jon, who became tabloid fodder for dating girls half his age while hosting Vegas parties and hanging with Lindsay Lohan’s dad, reveals he is happy with his simple life, stating, “I go to work every day and provide for my family. I spend time with my kids – spend time on the weekends. I spend time with the girlfriend I’ve had for over a year now. And enjoy a normal lifestyle.”

As for Kate’s worries that she won’t be able to provide for her kids in the manner in which she’s they’ve become accustomed, Jon reminds her, “I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house.” While a court order prohibits him from going into detail about support payments and visitation, Jon can divulge that he sees his children a lot while continuing to pay child support.

I’m sure that support is very helpful to Kate, as reports recently surfaced (after her dire People cover story) that she had bought herself quite the little toy. As soon as the People story broke, media outlets were reporting that Kate had purchased a sweet new ride…a new two-seater $50,000+ Audi TT to be exact. Um, no. She got that practical vehicle months ago when she thought the money would roll in forever her show was safe.

To all the haters, Kate fires back, “I bought this car used in April, six months ago. The paparazzi that are following me as we speak chose not to photograph it until after my show was cancelled and make a big deal out of it. I love the tabloid media!” The ol’ ‘blame it on the paparazzi’ gag. Because they are smart enough to predict that they shouldn’t photograph your new car because soon you’ll lose your sweet TV gig and pics of this car will triple…that’s exactly what happened. Priceless.

As for Jon’s advice, Kate doesn’t have much to say. “I don’t really have anything to say about Jon’s comments because he doesn’t live my life. I don’t listen to anything he has to say.” And what a life it is, Kate. Gracious!

WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON REGARDING JON AND KATE? DO YOU THINK SHE’S STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY AS MUCH AS SHE SAYS SHE IS IN INTERVIEWS? MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON HER NEW RIDE?


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?
