Is it me or is Kate Gosselin trying to up her sex appeal?
I’ve been watching her progression to media savvy mom over the past few seasons of Jon and Kate plus Eight but it occurred to me as I watched last night that media savvy may now have crossed into sex kitten.
It was around the time that Kate, tanned and highlighted in a green terrycloth sundress, sat on top of the family picnic table while the kids worked on an art project that the idea really sank in. I was completely missing what I am sure was a very interesting interaction between the sextuplets and one of their guest stars, because I found myself hopelessly distracted by Kate’s dress and wondering where I could buy one.
Photos have been splashed on the covers of magazines lately of Kate at the beach in bikinis looking tanned and toned. Now don’t get me wrong, if you are going to the beach and you’ve got the body- especially after 8 kids- go ahead and flaunt it! But in older episodes she was always on the beach in a more conservative tankini and long cover-ups or shorts, even after her televised tummy tuck. This is the woman around whom an entire episode was devoted to making over her wardrobe because she claimed she couldn’t even match her shoes to her outfit. During that episode she moped through the store complaining as Jon chose outfits for her. Now she is prancing around the driveway of her house in espadrilles and jean miniskirts. When did this happen?! And should it happen?
