Kate Gosselin let go from her job at CouponCabin

We're sure Lindsay Lohan, who announced last week that she's concerned about unemployment, had her ears perk up at this news: Kate Gosselin's lost a job.

The mom of eight and former reality TV star has been let go from her position as a blogger for CouponCabin.com, where she was hired last November.

The founder and CEO of CouponCabin, Scott Kluth, said in a statement that it was "a series of recent events" that led to the decision to pull the plug on Gosselin's role with the website, which he started nine years ago with the intent of featuring "all the best coupons… no gimmicks, no fluff."

However, this mysterious "series of events" has made it "clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago," Kluth writes. "Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin."

Gosselin seems to be taking life - and, presumably, this firing - in stride, as she tweeted Tuesday, "Good afternoon!I'm alive!I've been super busy working away!I'm having lots of fun and can't wait to share!No worries..we will chat soon! XO"

    To those of you calling the woman ugly and various other insults, get a life. I don't think we need to stoop to a level of insults like that when speaking of anyone, if she is unattractive it does not make her less of a mom or less willing to be able to hold a job. That being said, she does need to get a real job. Those who say that being a nurse can't take care of 8 kids, well it can if you stop buying designer clothing, and $500.00 shoes, and all that other crap. She will have to make changes to her budget and stop living like she has a 6 figure income. If she had been wiser with her money and put stuff into savings rather then spending like a crazy person she may have had money to live on when her show ended but she doesn't. That all said, I do wish that media and people alike would stop giving her the fame that she seems to clamor for. So what, she has 8 kids. Lots do, so what she had 6 of those at one time. THAT is her only 'claim to fame' . There are lots of moms out there don't get famous just for being a mom. Get past her. Move on.. and lets let her move on in her life too.

  7. Honest Opinion

    It continues to amaze me that people can remember every single negative word that Kate has ever said, even though it was years ago...........and yet they conveniently forget Jon's actions toward Kate and the kids while they were still together......remember the 'walk in the woods'.....remember Jon jerking one of the boys by the arm and marching him up the deck steps?.....his continual put-downs of Kate.........and on and on. Oh, and then, too there's the bar-hopping and fooling around with women on the side......when he supposedly 'went to help his mom'......what a joke! Then, what about his trying to steal the kids' college funds and then basically stealing from Hailey when he got caught......he has yet to pay that back.......oh and don't forget the false police reports. You all have selective memories it seems to me. Please don't tell me you believe a word of this book this man has put out..........you can't be that dumb, surely!! Ah well, they say there's a fool born every minute!.....lol Just don't be dumb enough to call that dead-beat dad a saint.

    You're waaaay behind the times with calling Kate a diva...........people who have worked with her have very nice things to say about her. Jon....not so much.......he can't be trusted. Seems like Kate's grown up and Jon's not done so.

    Why don't you all find something useful to do with your lives and leave Kate and the kids alone??? Personally I have too much going on in my life to spend the spare time I do have hating on someone I know nothing about. Kate's looking great, she's got a good future ahead, the kids are flourishing. What more can you ask for??

      Wow buddy, I think you need to go take your own advice and find something useful to do yourself. You are taking this a little too personally, surprising for someone who says they have so much going on in their life they don't have time for this stuff. It is a gossip column, so that's what the posters are doing, gossiping.

    I'm not sure what's making me more upset.
    A) She clearly gives off an unlikable and awful human being, persona
    B) She probably neglects her kids and uses them to cash a check
    C) Her husband saw what a monster she was, and ran while he could

    D) She has a twitter account. Meaning, people actually are in interested in this broad....

      a nurses job will not cover expenses for all those children with the money she spends on herself. I wonder what type of nurse she would be anyway, that is also not the right fit for her. Unless they make that a reality show! LOL
      I still remember the interview,when she pulled her unpaid bills out of her purse,and she had all that money in her account. she got caught red handed IMO and said that was not the account that she paid her bills with. The woman is vile

      come on Kendra you aint worring about them kids. Let me ask you isnt this the first time you had even thought about her and her kids since the last time you had heard anything about her which is most likely when her show last appeared. Isnt it true that you dont and wont give her or her kids a second thought in a few hours when this story is replaced in your mind by something else like a story about winter fashon whats hot when its cold.. Huh tell me isnt it true?? I am almost 99.8% sure these kids are not usually in your worries in fact i beleive you only made that statement because you were bored and just felt you needed to make a statement about how bad of a person someone you have never met is and how someone you never met should have her children taken away because it is your opinion that she screams and beats them. Well Kendra thank you for your input and you are just what this world needs.. ANOTHER JUDGE!!!!!!!!

The re-release will include even more proof of Kate's network of greed and lies."

    Well, can it have to do with the book that came out about her abusing her children and family pets? And that she planned the multiple birth to insure her fame and fortune? There are quotes from the book at RealityTVKids blog taken from kate's own journal. So far her lawyers made amazon pull the book, but too many people have read it. Too late kate.
