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!
This just in, Jon Gosselin issues a public apology to Kate Gosselin. This happens just one month after Kate is on record saying they’re living peacefully. Either hell froze over or the Gosselins are in cahoots once again; these are the only two options I’ll believe. I mean, they could simply be acting like adults, but that would be so out of character.
Jon tells People that he and Kate are getting along now and he’s sorry for the way he acted after their vicious divorce. “I was passive-aggressive,” he says. “Then I’d get mad, but I was the one who wasn’t communicating.” Now, they’re communicating freely – and even openly giving each other compliments? “I’ll call [Kate] up and say, ‘Mady’s sick. What do I do?’ And she’ll tell me,” he says. “She’s a great Mom. We just have different parenting styles.”
Surprise! We knew there was a reason that Kate Gosselin suddenly emerged again to give interviews this week – even gushing about getting along with her ex-husband Jon Gosselin- and it wasn’t just to spread the joys of couponing with the masses.
Turns out Kate is trying to shop around a new/old show, but nobody is biting! During the interview with Today she claimed that the kids were missing filming and that “they” were all hoping to do a new project: “We’re hoping – our TLC contract is over – so we’re hoping to move forward and do more fun projects. Fans are begging, ‘They’ve grown up, they’ve turned eight, what are you doing?’ and so we’re hoping to put that out there for them.”
It has been two years since Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin separated and roughly two months since their last Twitter feud. After many years of abuse, eight kids, a hit TV show come and gone, and a very nasty public divorce, are Kate and Jon finally going to act like adults and be civil to one another for the sake of their children? According to the insufferable self-involved star, yes, they are.
She tells Ann Curry of the Today show that her relationship with Jon is more peaceful than ever. In her signature spin to make herself look like the devoted parent picking up the pieces, she says, “He’s been really positive and more available and it’s just less stressful. I feel like he’s working with me and the kids notice it – and that’s good because I’ve always wanted peace for them.”
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.”

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.

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.
