Is Kate Gosselin extending an olive branch? Perhaps she's sick of being on the fringe in the tabloids? Nah, that can't be it. Could it be that all the money she spends on styling, manicures, and tanning don't allow for a big legal battle against her ex-husband Jon and author Robert Hoffman.
As you recall, Kate waged a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Robert who authored Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World as well as the father of her eight children after the self-published book painted the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality star in a not so pretty light. Yeah, it was just the book that did that…
In today's shocking news, former spouses Jon and Kate Gosselin still aren't getting along. The one time laid back member of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 duo is decidedly more low key these days. Thankfully, Jon is no longer dating nannies, abusing Ed Hardy (that we know of), or hanging with Michael Lohan. As for Kate, she's basically the same, but tanner with a much more expensive lifestyle and sense of entitlement. It's a wonder these two didn't work…
While Jon and Kate struggle to get along, their eight children are the ones who suffer. Jon is quick to mention this to Oprah Winfrey. See how casually I mentioned that? Yes, Jon is going to be interviewed by the Big O for her series Where Are They Now?
Kate Gosselin appeared on Bethenny Frankel's talk show today. Bethenny asked Kate point blank how she spent her Jon & Kate Plus 8 earnings. Kate turned the conversation around – poor little divorced me – and said a few things about co-parenting that Bethenny really needs to apply to her own life.
First – the money! Where did it all go? Bethenny pointed out that Kate made a ton of money during Jon & Kate Plus 8's wildly successful run. Typical Kate hemmed and hawed a bit but ultimately agreed and said it was a blessing.
Bethenny continued, "You said publicly you kind of need to support your kids. You need money to support your kids. So I think people want to know where the money went, where the money is."
Kate answered, "The majority of what we made, I personally took and put into a college fund for the kids because they will go to college. So I use coupons and we don't wear top brands. Those things, to me, really aren't overly important, but college, school, and the house where they live is important.
Kate Gosselin, who has a cook book to promote and a lawsuit to milk, is out and about. Consider yourselves warned. On the Today show, Kate talked about how much she's changed since Jon & Kate Plus 8 aired, as well as the lawsuit she filed against ex-husband Jon Gosselin. She did it for the kids!
The suit claims, "Jon violated the federal anti-hacking statue in order to publish salacious, scandalous, and defamatory information about Kate" because "if Hoffman was picking through trash on the street, he did not find this trove of personal information while engaging in his trash-picking endeavors."
Jon maintains his innocence, of course, and wants the case thrown out.
From purchasing a beautiful million dollar home and yachting in the South of France to working as a waiter and living in a modest cabin (without Internet or TV) in the woods… welcome to the real world, Jon Gosselin.
So nice to have you!
That's right! Years after starring in a wildly popular TV show and enduring a nasty divorce, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star is now serving food and drinks at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, PA.
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!
