What kind of job does Jon have? Don't ask Kate

Kate Gosselin One more time, for the cheap seats in the back: Kate Gosselin is a single mother, and she does what she’s gotta do to take care of her 8 kids, as she told Jay Leno last night on “The Tonight Show.”

“I feel like I say this a lot, and for whatever reason, I feel like I have to defend myself,” Gosselin told Leno. “The truth is, moms work - single moms work. I travel and work and that's my job, and I’m very grateful and fortunate to have a job. When work comes my way I only do it so I can literally put food on the table and send my kids to school.”

But what about her ex-husband, Jon? What does he do for a living? Gosselin’s response: a confused look followed by “Ummm…I don’t know.”

Leno pushed a little harder - does Jon have a job? “Not that I’m aware of,” she said.

But he is around to take care of the kids when Gosselin is away. Right now, Gosselin spends three days a week in Los Angeles for her "Dancing With The Stars" job while the kids stay home in Pennsylvania. “The beauty of my job, it’s very varied. I’m an author, I’m a TV person, I’m a dancer, [DWTS fans: she did say this with uncertainty] so a lot of it I can build around my schedule,” she told Leno. “A lot of the time Jon will be there with the kids or some of the time taking care of the kids while I’m gone.”

However she may feel about her ex-husband, Gosselin doesn’t reveal it in her book, “I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Life and Family.”

“One of the things I like about your book is that you’re reasonably fair and quite kind to your husband because he’s still the dad and the kids will read it,” Leno said.

“I won’t ever write anything nasty because the book to me is like a print interview. I don’t want my kids to be able to get a hold of that and [read] bad things,” Gosselin said. “I came up with the title because I say all the time; I’m a traveling, working mom that brings a certain amount of guilt. I always say, I just want my kids to know that I love them.”

    1st for the people who are saying they wish she would be run over by a car, train or just die. You need to think before you speak to wish some one to die just shows how stupid you really are. 2nd. she was a nurse so if she was working as a nurse now and trying to suport them she wouldnt be home except to sleep and maybe a few hours. I have a friend who is a nurse and she works 10-12 7 days a week. then maybe gets a weekend off once a month. so she would be gone just as much. I do agree not news worthy as much she is in it but all the kids are cute

    She's constantly trying to get all the single moms out there on her side, but she isn't a single mom! A single mom is someone who was basically deserted by a kid's father, but Kate is merely divorced and the father is still in the picture. The kids weren't abandoned. Nice try though!

    As stated in her original show with Jon, Kate is a NURSE...they are in much demand, and she could make a very decent living and support her kids without going all over the country.

    90% of you women(if you really are women) on here are jealous that you don't look anywhere near as good as Kate does and really wish you could be like her. Some you cows have only had 0 or 1 child and you got bodies like a bovine.

    98% of you men putting her down wish you could have a woman that looked that good knowing that you never will. You are probably married to or dating the afore mentioned bovines.

    Jon and Kate's saga began with them needing a source to provide for their large family. But, during the show Kate evolved into the classic, demanding, modern wanter. She will keep on wanting, no matter what. Enough will never be enough for Kate, which in a sense may drive her to a degree of success.
    On the other hand, Jon is the clueless one. He really believed the TV deal was just about providing for the kids. But, when it morphed into something quite different.... fame, money, celebrity, no privacy, he freaked. Probably doesn't help his job chances right now. But, I'm sure all will work out well in the future, so long as he stays away from the media and lawyers, and goes back to living the simple life.

    Really?....The problem here is that we as an audience have lowered our standards of what appears on the "Idiot Box" to such and extent we might as well be watching paint dry. I hate all reality Tv , why you might ask ? because it stupifies us. Look here we have 200 Plus posts on poor Kate Gosselin. Who cares ? Really ? dosent everyone reading this have thier own problems ?People wake up ,the broadcasters keep putting this S&*% on the tube because its cheap to make , the production costs for an episode of Sienfield or Friends are what TLC spends on a season of Jon and the B*!@# plus 8. This brings us to why is the channel called TLC , For those of you who do not know its an abbreviation for The Learning Channel , Really ? lets go over thier line up: LA Ink , Say yes to the Dress , Hoarding :Buried alive,19 kids and counting ,Little People Big World...BLah Blah Blah..whats there to learn here except to turn to a channel that might have something worth watching on and hey you might even really learn something .

    Ok-she is not the first single Mom out there working and she won't be the last!! I'm a single Mom of 5 and no one cares at the end of the day what I had to do support my kids an dI'm sure I'm talking for the rest of my single Mom sisters and even my single father brothers out there. Who cares and I don't think she'll be getting sympathy from us.
    If she feels like she has to defend herself maybe its because she feels guilty for something.

    Kate is where she's at right now because she is a 100% B***H. I watched Jon and Kate Plus 8 for a few seasons and I was always angered by how she treat Jon. NOTHING he did was ever good enough for her. So...what would any logical human being do if they were in a bad situation...they would run for the hills or at least move on. Kate deserves everything that is being thrown at her right now because SHE made it that way. I don't feel sorry for her in the smallest degree. Maybe next time she's married; if ever, she'll actually take care of her man and actually treat him with respect. Heck, if my wife always treated me like the way Kate treated Jon, I would probably go out and find some hot A$$ to bone to at least make ME feel better.

    Talk about "dumbing down" Americans! Generally, I do not pay attention to this woman – but today I decided to read this article on her! Doesn't anyone get it? This woman and her ex-husband are nothing but scam artists. While most Americans are having a difficult time financially – these two are laughing at us all the way to the bank! We should all just forget about them! The woman is talentless along with her freeloading ex-husband!

    @Karla. We are ignorant?You support a woman who has no skills whatsoever. She basically browbeat her husband into divorce and now is being just as rude to her partner on DWTS. That is who she is. She isn't a good mother. Before they got divorced she screamed at the kids and acted like they were a nuissance. They are a prop to her. She was traveling then and never home. The kids called their nanny "Mom." The work excuse might fly if she wasn't crying and complaining all the time about her privacy. Make up your mind, are you wanting all the attention that goes with it or do you want to be home for your kids. If it is the latter then she should stop selling out to do more shows were she is constantly on the road. Just because Jon is no winner doesn't make Kate better. The woman is a bad mother, bad wife and a rude person who has no skillset to mek herself a person of interest. Only pathetic people with no life support this shrew. It shows how ignorant this country is when a person like Kate becomes a pseudo-celeb.

She has nothing to offer. Sh ehas no talent and isn't a good wife or mother overall. So why is she giving advice or geting attention?We would be better off to not give her the attention and just let her fall into obvlivion.

I will not even watch a commercial that shows either one of them, especially her, she turns my stomach. These shows are all interconnected because they're all in some way owned by the same companies...entertainment shows, DWTS, CNN, MSN, ABC...whatever. I saw the heading about her breaking down during an interview, it's all crap, she's just keeping herself in the limelight to increase her so called value...why do you think she hasn't been kicked out of DWTS?...the channel wants her in there, it's good for them. And people that admire her, because she's trying to provide for her kids, she has plenty of money for that...she's doing this for herself...PERIOD. If not, she wouldn't be spending so much money on Botox, fillers, boob jobs, hair extensions, etc.. and would be saving her money instead...for her CHILDREN!

    Its all about kate and her wanting fame. It has nothing to do with being a "good single mother" or her kids. First off, she is not a single mother. They do have a father who is involved. She isnt even a "mother" because nannies are raising those kids while she is off playing like she is angelina Jolie.

    As for the kids, they are her 8 cash cows. Thats it folks. I see a tragic ending for the kids.

    John's support money was in escrow account from the money earned from the TLC show at the divorce proceedings because he was wiping out the bank account from TLC earnings and living high and partying with women in NYC and buying cars and motorcycles.

    Its up to Kate to support them and its what she is doing the best she can. If some of you people don't care then why do you get on here to make your nasty comments. A lot people do care, which is why the ratings skyrocketing on the dance show for the first time. And her books are big sellers.

    Why is everyone so down on Kate?

    Most women with kids work, so why is Kate any different?

    The only difference here is that people are jealous that she gets to make millions of dollars doing fun work instead of being a single mom who's a cashier or receptionist or a teacher and barely scraping by.

    What's the problem with making millions of dollars? She's not hurting anyone and she's providing for her children.

    So you want her to go away; and you think there are more important issues in the world,(and I agree); and her 15 min of fame are up; ect. What I don't get is why your looking for important issues under the Entertainment section of this web site. And if you want her to go away, then why did you read the article and post a comment? You added to the attention and gave her your time.

    Here's what i don't get– Jon doesn't have a job, Jon's taking care of the kids while she's working and making millions, and yet Jon's still paying around $25K a month in child support???? Um, shouldn't the person with the JOB pay the child support, and not the person taking care of the kids? It just doesn't really make a lot of sense to me.

    I wonder if Jon or Kate realize what an impact all of their fighting has on their kids. It's sad that these children were conceived out of love (supposedly) and now these so called parents are all over the media basically saying they hate each other. They need to grow up and put those 8 beautiful children first.

    It's been said you either love or hate Kate. Def. a Kate Hater: I'm -so- tired of seeing her 'woe is me' tears every week – YAWN. She says, "And this has all been unfolding in the public eye." Apparently, you said it's your job, so suck it up, and stop crying because you're setting an example for your children, & the public's tired of seeing it. Divorce and coping happens everyday to families in America. Welcome to -reality-. Your husband -should- obtain more custody: you're gone, he doesn't have a job...it makes sense for him to contribute his time to caring for your brood. Now you're going to travel MORE for 'Twist of Kate'? Word to your 'agents'/producers: find something positive for Kate to tap into and portray to the world and her children, instead of whining about exactly what she wanted: babies – like that really takes talent since everyone can breed (don't fret, TLC will bail you out regardless by offering up paying reality shows); most mothers have to suck it up big time and set a positive example to their kids and -really- work (which includes additional stressors of flying to meet with clients, producing deliverables on time/on budget, dealing with upper management, training workers, then juggling being a wife and mother on top of all that). Really, the nerve, to say your brother is jumping on the media bandwagon claiming the kids were overexposed in your reality frenzy: you've done the same damn thing.

    For all of you that say "who are you to judge" or "the public is unfair" or "you have to walk in their shoes blah blah blah". I say, these people chose to put their lives in the eyes of the public just like the Duggars, the Roloffs and all the other TLC families out there and along with movie stars, actors and whoever else chooses to be in the eyes of the public deserve to be judged and talked about. Whether you think it is fair or unfair is not the issue. The families did it to themselves and us, the American people, still have freedom of speech and are still free to comment and judge and be fair or unfair. So agree or disagree people, you all have the right to your opinions, you may be right, you may be wrong, but as long as they are in the public eye they deserve whatever comes their way...

    If she's soooo teary eyed and torn up from being away from her children...then go back to her "true"profession as a nurse. Kate is trying to be something that she's not and that is a STAR. I want her eliminated from the "DTWS" so I can go back to enjoying the show with the true celebrities.

    We all choose different paths in life to follow. A lot of us have family, kids, and the wonderful thing about this country, is we can choose what we want to do for a living. I'm married, have 5 kids, and do childcare to support my family. My husband works full time. We have a tough time financially. So the comments, "stay home, take care of your kids, and get a job" are ridiculous! What "normal" job provides you with enough income to support a family with a large number of kids? I'd like to know! A lot of actors are away doing "their stuff" without their kids! Why constantly pick on this one? What wife doesn't get stressed at times w/her hubby? There are other actors/celebrities out there that don't see their kids much at all but you don't hear much about them. I think some of you are being unfair and unrealistic. I don't think getting a job at McDonalds, and moving all her kids into a trailer park, collecting medicaid, childcare assistance, and welfare is the answer.......do you? Try supporting her for a change! It takes a village to raise a child! Not just a mother!

    she would get more support if she stopped with this act about "poor me I have to put food on the table for my kids" and just be truthful that she now loves the money, attention, freebies and opportunities that being on TV has given her. She, the two networks (TLC & ABC) are only cashing in more & more with all the press. Any press is good press, right? Do you really think ABC is going to have her get voted off this soon? No way, she brings ratings.

    Kate needs to make big bucks to keep the Kate train going. The agents, security, nannies, assistants, sytlists, personal shoppers – not to mention the $$ private school all the kids go to – at 18k a head for one year, she needs to and has publicly stated over and over that she intends on staying in the entertainment industry no matter what.

    Just be honest Kate and move the brood to LA, live in the gated community and embrace the lifestyle. We here in Berks/Lancaster county are quite tired of the circus.

    Listen America. Kate and Jon are not news. The News Media are forcing this mindless, useless drivel on us, telling us it's news, that it's important to our lives. This, vomit of the keyboard, that CNN keeps spewing out about these people whose only claim to fame is that they have 8 children. The only reason we even know their names is because some TV producer, who didn't want to spend the money for skilled writers and actors, threw these two people onto a "reality show" for the mindless to watch and drool over. You want reality? What about the men and women in uniform fighting overseas? What about the men and women in uniform who keep our streets safe? That's reality! Not "Jon and Kate plus 8" or "Kate and 8 minus Jon". A show like that is suitable for the intellect of 11-year-olds, and that is about it. If the news media would quit throwing people like this in our faces on a daily basis, then people like "Octomom" wouldn't get the bone-headed idea of pumping out 8 babies to try to make a "reality" show.
    CNN, I am truly ashamed of you for putting these people in our faces constantly. CNN used to be a NEWS channel, hence the name "Cable NEWS Network". Now, you give as much mindless drivel as the other "news" outlets who are looking to "entertain" the masses, kind of in the spirit of MTV's switch from videos to "reality TV". Quit trying to entertain us, and start informing us again!
    Jon and Kate Goslien, remove the a**hats, go out and do what any other parent would do; Get a job and raise your kids without having cameras around, just like "normal folks".

Her children will need decades of therapy as a result. You call this a good parent? She's as phoney as a 3 dollar bill. She can't dance, she can't act, she can't write.

A friend was hooked on this show and when staying with her for a visit, I saw this show and was aghast. My thoughts then and more so now was these kids need to be removed and mom and dad need parenting classes. This woman is now going to have a show where she advises moms? Please. If this had been my case, I'd have removed the kids from her, if for no other reason than she is not there–a lot. To see how she talks to her kids and her now ex, sheesh, give me a break. Kids who are "multiples" can have lifelong issues and this woman is just not there even when she is. She's the most @nal control freak I've ever seen and now seeing her with Tony and the way she questions/criticizes everything, dances like a stiff, just backs that up. With my professional hat off, this woman has a huge stick up her backside and everyone must dance to her tune. She is a world class attention "hoor" and when I had the misfortune to see her on Jay Leno the other night it was all "me, me, me." I really do not want to see this woman but she is EVERYWHERE and then she turns around and gripes about the papparazzi? She lives for it. Those kids should be living normal lives and she can't live on $20 grand a month? I know people with kids who live on that a year. Memo to TLC,: You've been party to child abuse. I'm willing to bet some mental health professional will be seeing most if not all of these kids as they get older. There are going to be decades of consequences for these 8 kids. This woman is nothing short of a puppy miller in human form, she produces them, then neglects them. I can't believe she has minions voting for her sorry butt on DWTS. She's ruining it.

    zzmook is right. For whatever we might feel about Kate (not a fan myself), Jon has his hands full as primary caregiver if that fact can be substantiated. What I don't get is, allegedly he pays an exhorbitant amount of child support each month and his lifestyle seems fairly glam up north. Where does he get the money?

    By the way, I posted into this link not to read the article but to do my part in alerting everyone I can as to what's going on. The reason I did it is because this obnoxious woman is ruining all my favorite tv shows and magazines with her constant presence, but more importantly is leaving her kids when she doesn't need to and lastly because she & TLC are perpetuating something that's not true, and doing it all just for the millions of dollars it brings in. She is just everywhere and won't go away. So I figure the more people who actually get what's going on, the more they will stay away, thus giving her less exposure and hopefully lower ratings on her upcoming show. This woman needs to come back down to reality and go home, fire all the nannies, cooks, gardeners and bodyguard that TLC is currently paying for and be a present mom to her kids and actually cook them a meal once in a while and spend time with them.

    This is long but here's the REAL story. The reason this woman sticks around is because she has a fan base mostly comprised of women who have absolutely no idea what the REAL Kate is like because they didn't watch the show Jon & Kate +8 from the beginning. Many of us did and we loved her and Jon...then we all started to see how mean spirited she was to her husband, cutting him down on national tv, treating him like a dog. Then we saw how she treated her family and friends, eliminating them one at a time for the slightest infraction. When TLC offered her brother payments to ensure they'd stay on the show since they were becoming a larger part of the kids' lives, Kate was furious and let them know that NO ONE outside of her would make money off her kids! The brother & wife were then kicked to the curb. Same thing happened when TLC offered payments to Kate's best friend, Beth Carson, who did most of the writing on her first book. Same deal, Kate was furious so then Beth was eliminated from her life and her kids' lives. Then Jon wanted to stop filming since he began to see it as an intrusion on the kids' lives and it was taking its toll. Kate said no way! This led to the downward spiral of the marriage. Jon wanted to go to counseling, Kate refused and filed for divorce instead and end the marriage. Afterwards, since Kate was open to continued filming with the kids which in turn led to millions in profits for TLC, they managed to stomp Jon to the ground financially so he finally gave in. That's why he currently gets a monthly salary from TLC (which is how he's able to pay the huge mthly child support payments) but in return, he has to keep quiet and not say a word and he won't be included in any future filming when "Kate+8" starts which will be an occasional special that includes the kids. Jon's part of the contract with TLC will end and he will then no longer be getting their huge paychecks each month so will be unable to keep up the huge support payments to Kate.

    Kate continues her pursuit of fame & fortune, is a wealthy millionairess many times over and still puts on the act of being, "just a single mom who needs to work to put food on my kids' table." It's all a snow job on the public... especially on genuine single moms who are struggling financially, just so she can increase her fan base, which will translate to ratings, which will translate to millions more for her and TLC. We all know Jon made some horrible personal judgment calls after the marriage was over but he appears to have learned his lesson. We kind of attribute his bad judgment calls as a disproportionate reaction to being totally beaten down & stifled for 10 years of marriage to a very controlling Kate. Hate him if you want to but he has ALWAYS adored his kids and been there with them when it was his turn and Kate allowed him to visit (that's a whole other story of how she tries to keep him away). And the kids absolutely light up when they see him come through the door. Now you know what's REALLY going on. Watch her if you want to. Buy into her act if you want to. But those of us who know the real Kate and the real story refuse and that's why the disparity between those who adore her (they're buying the re-invention of Kate) and those of us who are onto her act. Contrary to the stories, we do not hate her...we hate her use of her kids to make money, her ongoing & unnecessary absence from them to pursue even more millions of dollars, and we hate her behavior and her many ongoing lies that, apparently, many moms out there are buying into and that in turn keeps her on tv and magazine covers. End of story.

    Seriously, I want to know how Jon is making $20,000 a month child support payments?? We know Kate doesn't know what job he has but how can he be paying that much and not have a job?

    Having watched the show, you can tell he has no personality and she was the driving force and sorry, but having that many kids, someone needs to be at least somewhat organized and that is Kate......not wimpy Jon. I always got the impression that if it was up to him he would be sitting there just letting the kids run wild.

    The double standard is also there as far as these two are concerned. If it was Jon making the money and being absent, it would be fine. But it's not. Kate is the breadwinner. At least she isn't collecting welfare to take care of these kids.

    However with how these two act, they shouldn't have had kids to begin with.........

The "she's doing it for the kids" shtick is a nice candy coating but under that shell this is all a narcissism fueled desperate grab at the spotlight. If she cared about her kids, truly cared, she wouldn't leave them for weeks at a time to appear on television. She's trash. She uses her kids to garner sympathy while she roles around in the millions gained from her television show, her book, and the myriad of talk-show bookings that she lands. She's a crap mom, with a crap story that's juicy enough to hook all the mental wizards that reside in this country. F her. Case Closed.

She may not be the greatest Mom out there – since the most important thing to a child is the love & attention of their Mother... which with her crazy schedule, I'm sure she hardly has time with them.... but she's making it. She chose to have them & now she's choosing to support them in this way. It's definitely sad that our society oogles over situations like this.... but it is what it is.

    If Kate is abandoning her children by being on DWTS, then all of the celebrities on the show who have children must be doing the same thing! Face it, these children have a dead beat father who to my knowledge does not work, so if Kate can get jobs that pay good, then why not take them. I consider learning to dance, traveling back and forth and taking care of children a very hard job. And yes, they chose to have another child, but God chose to give them 6 more. Their option would have been to KILL some of those babies. THEY chose life for all six, now KATE has the job of supporting them. At least she is willing to work, not sit on her butt and collect welfare. Good job Kate. You are doing great.

    The only way that they could not give birth to all 6 was to abort them. How does one decide who to abort. Looking at those children now..what a wise choice that was made. Kate is a good mother and the children are adorable normal kids and not like some kids that are out of control. I came from a family of 6 and I am glad my parents did not abort one of us. We even like each other.

    Her books have been sold out in the past and Kate does have a big following and even with her on the dance show has skyrocketed the ratings.

    Jon always sat around like a bump on a log and sometimes it was like if he put on one more shoe on one more kid or had to get up tomorrow and do this all over again that he was going to go ballistic. He was good for sulking too if he didn't like something. Instead of growing up he choose to go from the disinterested parent to the cheater. Jon wants the kids so he can have his own reality show with them is what some claim he wants. I guess she is not able to have a show with them without him. At least not on the network they were on.

    You can see both these parents love their kids just I don't think Jon could do the hard work. The hard work that goes with raising kids or the hard work when marriages have their big bumps in the road.

  192. My opinion

    It's often mentioned in comments about Kate Gosselin that people pick on her for being a single mom away from home but not on the other woman on Dancing with the Stars and what about Angelina Jolie? Here is my take on why comments aren't made about those moms...its because they don't cry and carry on and mention at every opportunity how they have to be away from their children to put food on the table. Not knowing the Gosselin family personally but having read reports of how much was made with the tv shows, the books, and Jon paying child support ...added to the fact that Kate herself has apparently said college educations are banked...I have to ask, does Kate really need to be away from her children? If she really wants to be with them more than anything, and in her mind she is always home baking and being with them, then I suspect she could make that work. I don't have any problem with moms that work, or stay at home moms...what I have a problem with is a person who cries and carries on that she wants to be home with her kids but is actually choosing not to be. And I certainly have no problem with stay at home dads, sometimes that is what works best for the family...and it seems to me, from watching Jon & Kate Plus 8 that Jon is a loving, very much hands on, dad...so if Kate wants to travel and be on tv, do interviews, etc, why not let the supposedly out of work dad take care of the kids. Wouldn't they be better off with their dad then a rotating schedule of nannies...which I have to assume is the case since reports put the nanny count anywhere from 3 to 5.

Jon is probably upset that the cameras are not on him any longer. Kate is working, she is not asking for financial assistance from the govt. and if she can survive for 20 more years getting paid for showing up for t.v. appearances, dance contests, reality t.v. then I am all for it. This is the hand she was dealt and she is taking advantage of it.

    Kate closes her eyes and believes she is a 'star' ....people continue to write stories about her life daily.....the truth is she knows that she screw up big time in both her personal and business affairs....She has to be very concern because I believe that she truely loves her children but there are Eight of them and she needs money so she will do whatever to earn money....I would do the same to protect and provide for my family. Is she a 'star'? No...she isnt but I am not either. She needs to grow up and as soon as possible learn to say the word 'sorry' when she screws up....maybe then America will eye her in a different light.

    kate would never be able to make enough money as a nurse to pay for the child care for 8 kids that she would need while she worked her 10 to 12 hour shift. She is better off on television. Does anyone know if Jon is paying child support??

    I think Jon's job is to milk this for all it's worth and to be a good enough father to his kids so they don't hate his guts when they grow up a bit as they begin to understand more of what's going on. Jon seems to be concerned for his children and that I think this is as positive as it can get. The woman he was married to has changed into a star and she outshines Jon. She's lucky he was there during her pregnancy working I might add and the primary earner at the time. He was also there during the toddler years supporting his wife and putting up with whatever abuse; without this support I do not think she would have reached the level of celebrity that she enjoys today. They once were a team. Fame and money change people for better or worse.

    "Just because Jon was ordered to pay child support of $20,000.00 doesn't mean he does pay. Anyone wonder how he is to make that much money when he doesn't even work? Last time I made that much money in a month for sitting around on my butt was...............never."

    I'm sure he's also receiving money from TLC ...after all, the show is still in reruns....and trust me, if he wasn't paying that $20,000.00 a month, Kate would be on every talk show that she could, to make sure everyone knew that he wasn't paying it....especially these idiots who all seem to love her.

    I don't get all these comments that at least Kate is working and isn't on welfare. Since when are those the only choices? The woman used to be a nurse: let her go back to nursing–or if she doesn't want to do that any more, she could train for a different job. She's earned millions from the reality show, books, etc. (I just read this.), so if she isn't earning mega-bucks, she STILL wouldn't need to go on welfare. Please, let's stop applauding her for trying to be in the spotlight: it is NOT her only career choice and is NOT necessary to keep her off welfare

    And the reason she isn't going away is...look at the number of comments this story generated! That's evidence to the media that people are attracted to stories about her. Maybe if her new reality show is a bust, she'll fade into obscurity. Let us hope.

They will be called "Kate + 8" and a "Twist of Kate" or something like that. I heard this on some entertainment show tonight. So, trust me, her 15 minutes of fame will stretch into several years....she isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    There were 8 people (6 kids) in my family growing up. In our neighborhood, there was a family of 18 (16 kids). Amazingly, no one had to appear on national television ten times a day to support them all. One parent worked outside the home. One parent REALLY worked inside the home. We all survived. We even went to private school. And had a boat. And went on vacations. Imagine!

    I don't care that she has 8 kids. That's HER problem, and it IS a problem or she wouldn't keep using that as an excuse to support her real problem: Fame grubbing. I just wish she'd stop being such a fascination to people who need a life, and "news" web sites to stop "updating" us all on this non story. I guess my problem is not with Kate, but with the poor lifeless that can't seem to get enough of her. If they would stop that, I wouldn't have to keep seeing "Kate Gosslin" articles everytime I open a web page or turn on the news.

    It's not about dancing, singing, appearing on talk show, news shows, etc. The only thing she is about is working to support her family. Just because she doesn't do it in a traditional way doesn't give all you nasty people a reason to judge her. Her husband was told by the court he must pay $20,000 a month in child support! Hello, he's never even had a job & I gather has no skills to get one. Someone has to bring home the bacon to pay all the bills and feed the kids. What the heck do you care how she does it??

For those of you who say she is a nobody and "wannabe star", well guess who made her into a celebrity?! Hey that would be all of you wouldn't it?! Anyone who watched their show, bought a magazine that her family was in, paid even a second of attention to their family plastered across the front of a tabloid, anyone who spent their time to read an INTERNET article about her. Americans made her famous and made her a celebrity. Last time I checked paparazzi don't just follow around someone who is a "nobody". There are plenty of other "celebrities" that have literally done absolutely NOTHING other than be the daughter of a rich man, or accused an actual celebrity of having an affair. So how about next time, you attack someone a little more deserving of your pathetic and rude accusations.

Jon certainly did nothing to help secure the financial future of the children. What is Jon's job? His job is trying to latch onto the coattails of his ex-wife and children and try to mooch off of them because he is a loser that screwed up any opportunities he might have had by being an idiot.

    At this point, given the excessive amount of media exposure and attention the Gosselins have received, I am left to conclude...
    These two individuals brought more children into the world then they could afford to care for. As a result of the public's willingness to see the daily in-and-outs of a household full of multiples and their (God bless them, especially) older sisters, it seems this family is incapable of returning to private life. Now the mother defends her presence in the public eye as the means to sustain her brood. So these people cannot provide for their large family without showcasing themselves and the kids. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? In effect, without their "perceived" celebrity, this family cannot be sustained. This is very wrong, very sad and very ridiculous. And it speaks LOUDLY about the state of family in this country. It's a sort of weird public assistance.

And although I'm not a fan of either parent here, I do have to say at least Kate has gotten off her butt and taken as many opportunities to work out some kind of paycheck for those kids. What has Jon done....except for fly around with much younger bimbos partying and spending money. Has he done anything to bring a paycheck home to those babies?

    For anyone defending Kate (who is the same as Octomom)... don't you get it? Kate had these children for one purpose and one purpose only-- for her 15 minutes of fame. Admittedly she told nurse friends of her plan, everyone of us laughed thinking it was a sick joke. That's the only reason she has her minutes of fame. Believe that she is a brash, nasty, controlling woman who got exactly what she set out to do....oh and it also was in her plan to divorce Jon once she tricked the public and TLC, ABC that she is someone worthy of millions......all you little "soccer moms" thinking she's someone to defend...why change her looks?- – -other than continue fulfilling her quest for fame at the expense of the children she brought into the world for one purpose...her greed. I am from the PA town that initially donated money to assist with her needs in the beginning...till the people were duped by her ... Lets get her out of the spotlight.... finally.

    Why is there so much hatred towards a woman who is working in order to take care of her children and herself? Is it because she is on TV? So are many other women celebrities who are single moms. The only reason that she comments so much on the issue is because the media continually brings it up and continually trashes her. Of course she feels the need to defend herself! Anyone would!

    As for Jon...well, he doesn't seem to want to get a job and help support his children does he? So Kate is left to do the work. Leave her alone. Whether she can dance or not, write or not, is a celebrity or not, is nice or not is immaterial. She is trying to support her children financially. And she, without a doubt, loves her children. People...just leave her alone!

    Good point whoever said that Angelina Jolie is not criticized for working instead of staying home with 6 kids. Good point. And she drags them all over the world. If Kate drug hers around people would be griping about that. And she knows she might just have 15 minutes of fame and she knows she has to make the best of it. I would hate to think about sending 8 kids to college or even buying shoes for 8 kids. Who of you would not take a free trip to Disney World for your kids?

    I admire her. She has to make a living. She knows she can't dance but she gets paid big bucks to look foolish and does it. Any mom would do what they have to to support their kids. And if we were offered free hair styles and clothing and plastic surgery we would take it too. I have 3 grandkids that their parents can't support them and I do and would do whatever it takes to make their lives better. Sure she talked rough to Jon sometimes and she now regrets it but when it came down to tough choices, he made stupid ones and she did not. Go Kate.

    I know Kate has been miserable in the past, but I completely understand that she must work.

Obviously he is not working or Kate would know what he does. I think this is pretty important! Instead of judging Kate for working, why isn't anyone questioning why John is not? Why is she being judged differently than any other mom who works? I don't hear anyone questioning Angelina Jolie for working instead sitting at home with her 6 kids?

    I find it interesting that the articles about the Gosselins receive the most comments. They are here because people still have an opinion, one way or the other. They still get attention. I must admit that my opinion changes. They have both made mistakes. Hopefully they will learn. Many of us enjoyed her openness and frankness when J&K+8 first began. TLC needs to accept much blame. The family featured in 'The Little People' seem to be having problems as well. TLC seems to enjoy the drama way to much. And why is everyone dumping on her for travelling and appearing on television for her job when we adore 'legitimate' celebrities? Why are they any different? No one rags on Jessical Alba, or Kelly Ripa, or even Angelina Jolie...there is not one starlet in Hollywood or elsewhere who also has children who is not gone from them a good portion of the time. And they don't have 8 children! She does do what she can to stay in the spotlight because it is giving her an income. I do not agree with her being away from her children, but to criticize her and laud all of the others is so hypocritical! Or what about regular working mothers who don't see there children much during the week because they work? Let's be fair, folks. If it's wrong for her to be away from her children, than it's wrong for any mother to be away from her children for work. If actresses have the right to be on screen to make a living, then Kate has just as much of a right. Everyone who goes on DWTS is doing it to get more attention. Anyone who is famous does it for money and honor.

    The job of a single mom in the real world is also varied. She has to:

    wake up her kids (in time so all can get to their respective destinations in time), make breakfast, pack lunches, get everyone dressed and out the door, drive to (some actually have to take the bus) their destinations, go to work (Heaven forbid there should be an emergency call regarding one of her children), leave work, go pick up children, come home, start dinner, check for homework, etc , etc, etc.... and all this is accomplished without a staff!!!!

    According to Kate:

    "If I worked a normal job then I would be away from my kids more then I am doing what I'm doing now"

    DWTS show takes her away from her kids 3 days a week = 72hours away from home

    Normal 40/week job = 40 hours away from her kids.

    Maybe Kate should be on the show 'Are you smarter than a 5th grader' to buff up her math skills.

  298. Really?

    To all the ones basking the Kate Hater's. I really dislike Kate but I do get a kick of reading the stories about her and Jon. I can respond with a comment if I so choose to do so. The article was about Jon working and it turned into Kate's stint on Leno, Kate's DWTS, Kate's book – Kate, Kate, Kate.

    To write a book to tell your children that you love them is the sadest accuse for NOT being there to do it in person.

    I've been a single working mother; after my divorce my ex did not work so I was the sole support for my 3. Child support was not an option because he did not work. My point is that everyday I went to work and traveled a small amount when they were much older but I was in their lives.

    I'm not jealous of her at all, I feel pity for her small children who don't understand where mommy is. Jon is no better than her but all you Pro-Kate fans see her as a wronged woman by Jon instead of recalling the brow beating, control freak that is was on the show.

    I'm tired of seeing her on magazine's popping her child in the face or yanking one by the arm. That shows that she is stressed out and showing them who the boss is. She is abusive and needs some counseling or better yet anger management instead of dancing/crying.

Regardless what anyone feels about Kate, I have respect for her. Flying back and forth from the east to west coast has got to wear a person out. She's doing it for the kids, not for fame. DWTS pays thousands of dollars, I heard even six figures. She'd never make enough money to support those kids going back to nursing. It's expensive enough to raise one kid let alone eight. People love to criticize women even when they are trying to do the best they can. Jon Gosselin is a bum. And to you people commenting "Who Cares?"

It's always been about her. I don't blame Jon – you have someone ratting on you in private, never mind TV, the way she did....can't believe he lasted that long. Good for Him!

    While I'm no fan, I find it amazing how people are accusing her of abandoning her children because she travels to earn money. The article stated that she is away from home for 3 days a week to film the show. Ever ask a flight attendant how often they travel away from home? I've known several and they were away nearly half the month (3 days one week, 4 days another, etc) from their families (meaning spouses AND children). While we may not agree that what she does is a typical "job", at least she's doing something. With her reality tv "fame", what hospital is going to hire her as a nurse now? Do you think any typical employer is going to want paparazzi hanging around? Pretty sad that she's making a living the only way she realistically can now and her loafer ex is practically being praised when he was the louse who ended the marriage. She's making the best of a bad situation.

    There are already dozens upon dozens of responses here and the irony is that many of them are asking, "Who cares!?!" Don't any of you get it, that by posting all of these responses, you are telling cnn and the world that YOU DO CARE. The way to get rid of this woman is to stop clicking on the articles about her. Cnn.com is mostly automated, they count the clicks more than they read the comments. Come, people, figure it out.

    no one should feel bad about Jon being belittled by his wife in front of cameras. in life people will do to you what you allow them to do. my wife wouldn't ever talk to me like that. its not a matter of "why? have you hit her and thats why she won't talk to you like that?". its about being a man and laying down how things are gonna be, which is what every woman wants. there is mutual respect in my house, my wife is my partner, but as a man i demand a certain level of respect. apparently Jon has no backbone to require the same respect from his ex-wife, thus he spent his entire marriage being walked over.

    I feel sorry for her for all the public, wide-spread trashing she takes. First, when she was married, she seemed to be pretty bossy and picked on her sweet, little husband. Now, we know better. He really was just like one of the children and needed to be poked and nagged to grow up and pitch in instead of waiting for his wife, who was already doing 100% of the parenting, to do it all.

    Now that we've learned more about him–he who took off when the marriage went south instead of staying to help take care of his 8 children, we can put this into perspective. but, hey. he didn't parent before unless ordered to by Kate, and he's not doing it now. He has no job and flops around looking for opportunities like the ones Kate is being offered now. without which, who would be supporting the children? Jon? not hardly.

    she has a massive job raising 8 children by herself. she's a single mother in a country that does not help single parent mothers. For the sake of those children, let's leave her alone or help her–not just cut her down for the recreational benefits of gossip and meanness.

    I think Kate is a great mother but a bad wife. She takes care of her kids. She sees them 4 out of seven days a week. I know many mother who do not get to see there kids that much and work a regular job. Not only does she see her kids more than most moms that I know but she also provides for them better than most people I know. I have a degree in Psych and a TV show is not what turns kids into crazy adults. Things are hard in this economy. Technically she is a star she was on TV on a very popular show. Look at all these reality shows. The stupid bachelor for one. Who cares if you are single go find a women online like everyone else. Talk about crappy... that is a crappy way to become known and get 15 min of fame.

    I understand it's hard raising kids, but c'mon, Kate! You've milked the celeb thing enough by now. My mom raised three kids, helped send a husband to college and law school and still managed to hold several jobs (one full-time, two part-time)! I won't even mention that she's managed to put those three kids through college without any TV support... so why's Kate getting all this attention when everything is basically done for her? I'm tired of it. You want a reality show? Show a normal mom with several kids for a month. Kate will look like a lazy woman at that point.

    My grandmother raised 8 kids...basically on her own because her husband was away working as a guide and had to be in the woods/on the river most of the year. This was back in the day when she milked her own cow, made her own butter, grew her own vegetables, knit until the wee hours to ensure her family had woolen socks and mittens in the winter. She worked all the time and still was able to raise 8 children who, with the exception of 2 who died at young ages due to pneumonia (no antibiotics when they were little), all grew to be productive members of society who loved their mom and their dad. I am sure many of their day-to-day antics would have made for great TV but thank goodness they didn't because those children probably would have grown up to be the basket cases that will most likely be the future of the Gosselin family.

Kate is a mother like alot of people and as a mother you do what you have to do to provide for your family no matter what that is. A regular 9-5 job is not going to care for 8 kids and if you think that is what she should do than we will be the one paying for her kids with out tax dollars. So get over yourselves. Those kids seem very happy in life and that show did nothing wrong to those kids. Hell I wish I would have been on a show growing up so I could have went on all those fun trips.

    Foodie, most of us already ARE in the "same position." We are all working and trying to take care of our families. The difference is, most people have enough brains to realize that (a) having huge numbers of kids is going to make life difficult and (b) having cameras follow you around all day will intrude on your life to such an extent that it will ruin your marriage and rip apart the family. She wanted to be a "celebrity" and now she's finding out it's not all ballgowns and Nielsen ratings. An object lesson for anyone else out there who thinks the public needs to watch them change diapers and fight with their spouse.

Her husband is doing NOTHING and takes money out of the account which is suppose to be the house account for the kids and people want to pick her apart. She is trying to make a living and trying to support 8 kids. Obviously the people that are making these rude comments are not single parents and have never had to pay for child care. She is doing this to make a living. Now is she just decided to not do anything she would get picked apart for being lazy and living off govt assistance. People wake up and realize that she is trying to provide for her children. What she does is her business. It's funny how people don't pick fathers apart for traveling for their jobs but when a single mother does it she is a bad mother. She is getting paid good money and doing things so she can provide for her children. Geesh people it's her life and let her do what she wants.

    Wow, all the people who took time out of their busy day to stop and read this article and then comment how much they hate Jon and Kate. I never watched the show but have read many of the articles since their divorce. What I see if you take away the "celebrity" status is a woman with a job who is supporting her kids. I see a man who immediately found a new girlfriend/girlfriends. I see a man who doesnt seem to have an income/Job at all and is not paying any child support. In America women have to work. We would not be able to provide for our families the way we want to if both parents did not work. Some have to travel for their jobs, some just work from early morning to late at night. I myself work a minimum of 10 hours a day. I leave before they wake up and I return after they have all eaten dinner and may be in bed already. Yes, Kate needs to grab all the limelight and Tv job's , books, etc while she can as I am sure she is smart enough to realize they are not going to last forever. She needs to milk her 15 minutes of fame.

    i think the whole backlash about the Gosselins – and Kate in particular – is that no one forced them to have 8 kids. A rule of thumb is never to have more kids than you can handle. Life happens – people get divorced, people unexpectedly pass away leaving widows – anything can happen that would leave someone on their own to take care of their children. to willingly put oneself into a position where they have 8 kids to take of is negligence on her part. the backlash comes from her benefiting from this negligence with tv exposure (and all the perks that come with being a quasi-celebrity), free plastic surgery, etc. this is the same backlash with Octo-Mom – society doesn't like it when people put themselves in bad/difficult situations then immediately become famous or get rich from being in a difficult situation. no one should feel anymore sympathy for Kate than those crazy guys who stick their heads in crocodile's mouths for money.

    Carmen – Jon had a job when the show first aired. Kate stayed home with the kids during the day but as soon as he walked through the door at night they were his responsibility. She would throw her hands up in the air and say she was done for the day. He bathed them, played with them and put them to bed. Then on the weekends all of his time was spent taking care of the list of things that Kate wanted done – organizing the garage, painting, putting furniture together. Jon lost his job because he spent all his time making calls to sponsors to get free stuff because Kate was demanding it (that came from his boss). Jon wanted out of the show the second season but Kate wouldn't hear of it. She enjoyed the limelight too much. She then wanted a new house, bigger cars, more trips. The more she got, the worse she treated Jon. I cheered for him when he finally grew some b*lls and left. Just an FYI, Kate is always calling and setting up interviews, etc. I'm sure she (or her publicist) tips off the paparazzi when she's going to a gig. Unfortunately once they're following you they will catch doing other things like slapping your children for interrputing your telephone call (least we all forget what kind of mother she really is). As for Jon with younger women, he is younger than Kate and is only dating women a few years younger than himself. If you're going to give validity to rumors then you need to acknowledge that Kate has some sort of relationship going with her bodyguard. By the way, who needs a bodyguard? She hired him before her and Jon split, so what was up with that? She had no threats or bad publicity at the time. She said it was to protect the kids, but instead of staying with the kids he traveled with her everywhere while Jon stayed home and protected and took care of the kids. Hmmmm. Where there's smoke there's usually fire.

    All I see here is a marked double standard against males in this country: if a woman stays at home and watches the kids, she isnt criticized for "not having a real job", as she was in the past – our society now values the job of a stay at home mom. However, reverse the role with a stay at home dad, and suddenly he is a bad dad who "wont get a job".

    Sorry folks – but raising kids is a two way street, and since Kate is never home on a consistent or meaningful basis, one parent needs to be there to raise those kids and care for them. Maybe I am just being old fashioned, but I still believe in "real" family values, and not the ones all the fake "family values" people out there are currently screaming about at some tea-party.

    Being a local to the Gosselin family, I find CT's comment about typical trash from PA very insulting and thank you Elle for pointing out how ignorant of a comment it is.

    Like her or not (I am in the not group) but Kate is making money to support her kids. Last I heard Jon is now sleeping on the sofa of his brother's home in Maryland. Plus, I haven't heard that he has any kind of job....other than trying to hook up with younger girls and living off of them. Is that having a job??

    If you aren't interested in these people, don't read about them. I am not interested in the whole Tiger Woods and his lifestyle thing so I don't read about it. If I hear about it on the news, I may listen but he is certainly far from the focal point of my life.

    Kate is truly clueless. Yes, all single mothers work, but single mothers don't sell their kids to keep themselves in the spot light. Her poor children have no privacy. Kate would set them loose, just like the 2 dogs that took too much of her time, if she could not make money off of them. Her reality show and reports from the crew and others show her to be into herself and her kids are left to be parented by the crew, nannies, and relatives, until she cuts them loose. She keeps the kids from their father. When she is traveling, Jon should be in the family home with the children. She is still a control freak and wll end up destroying her family. Kate is a waste of air. Kate is all about Kate and getting as much press as possible. Stop selling your children's privacy and dignity to make a buck.

    Jill, you post was right on, and I couldnt agree more.

    The plain and simple truth nobody wants to hear...and especially Kate...is that she is hurting her kids more by her actions than she is helping them. Kids dont care as much about wealth and fame as they do about mommy (or daddy) being home and being there to share in their lives...you just cant do that on her schedule, no matter what anybody says, and that's the bottom line.

    Wow, you people are mean. If you don't like her, fine, that's your opinion, but what gives you the right to say the stuff you are saying, when she can't defend herself? This is exactly what she is talking about. People demeaning her for no reason at all, just to make themselves feel better? She is WORKING to take care of her kids. There is nothing wrong with that. She is so much better then the Octo-Mom who lives off Welfare and is so out of touch with reality.

    You people have way too much free time and have no right to complain about stuff you know nothing about. Are you in her shoes trying to live a normal life with 8 kids? Do you have any idea how much it costs to feed a family of 3, let alone a family of 9? I really doubt it. Most of you are probably sitting behind a computer for 16+ hours a day collecting Welfare with no desire to actually WORK for a living. You are the people I can't stand. You think you need to put your 2 cents into everything that is posted to get people to LOOK at ME.

    Kate was a registered nurse. She was pregnant with 6 babies and chose not to abort some of them. Her husband did not much but act like a irresponsible child himself, very unmotivated with no job. Husband wants out and begins dating very young women while acting the single young life and Kate stays home, authors a book, continues filming with children to make a paycheck to provide for the children. NEVER did Kate say she had talent...Never did Kate call paparazzi or call DWTStars or call media for interviews. Print & video media call her and for $ she does interviews and dances. Note: Kate NEVER said she could dance nor did she say she was a talented star. Kate makes $ for her family and is away from her children no more than most mothers. How do you expect Kate to provide if she is the only making a living. So tell me WHAT HAS KATE DONE so wrong. Did anyone ever hear her pretend to be talented. Kate has said "I am only a mother trying to provide for my children". There are MANY stay at home mothers abusing, neglecting, and unproviding for their children subjecting them to welfare, filth, poverty and sometimes death. I wish I would have had her opportunities to provide for my children like she has. You go Kate ! I am proud of the example you are giving your children that women can provide and don't have to curl up in a ball and die without a man. You look great, speak knowledgeably and act like a lady.

You do have a choice in what you select to read. Why give her power by making ANY comment, positive or negative? If you truly do not care about her then prove it. There is only one thing that will send a powerful message for someone of celebrity status and it isn't love or hate. It is nothing. I dare you to "nothing" her and if enough people do it, she may just fade into the ether.

    Jill, I'm so glad to hear that from a true single mother. I see so many other ones supporting Kate saying she is simply doing whatever she can to care for her kids. Give me a break – do they actually think that she is struggling to get by in her million dollar mansion?
    She is an attention-seeker, plain and simple. However, she has absolutely no talent or skill to warrant being called a celebrity, and will stop being relevant in the media the minute her self-caused drama stops. She's bringing her own trouble on herself and then whining about it.

    Ok, is it really worth it for the parent that the kids are with the most to also be gone out of there lives for days at a time? How strange it must be for those kids to be in that house with nannys there instead for the daily things A PARENT should be there for- like homework, bathtime, nighttime tuck-ins, ect. It's ok if you leave your kids with someone while you work, 8-10, 24 hrs even, but not for DAYS. I know it's only 3 days at a time, but still. She needs to cash out of the entertainment business for the reason she needs to be the parent that is home, because Jon sure the heck won't. I won't even go in to talking about her lack of talent.... she needs to be home with her kids, period.

    For goodness' sake, leave the woman alone. She is doing the best she can with the situation she's in. There is no shame in trying to earn a living! Yes, she's annoying and shrewish. She's not any more "special" than anyone else. However, DWTS has high ratings, even higher than the long-time #1 show on TV, so someone is watching, likely due in large part to her participation on the show. So, like her or not, deserved or not, Kate IS a celebrity and pop-culture newsworthy. If you want her to go away, stop talking and commenting about her, and stop watching the shows she's on. With no hate-generated buzz, she'll fade into obscurity soon enough.

    TLC are the ones responsible for creating such a monster in this woman. She is absolutely pathetic and will do anything to gain attention. Her newest attempt at "putting herself" out there was denied by Playboy. My mother raised 7 kids and never complained about not having enough money. Kate can get a real job like other single moms. Go back to nursing. If she was such a great nurse, maybe should could teach and not have the "terrible" hours she says she would have if she actually nursed. The only ones to feel sorry for here are the kids. They didn't ask for any of this. TLC should not even give her a shot at another show. Kate thrives on all the attention and I think since none of us cares about them then shut the TV off and stop buying magazines she is in. She benefits from all this.

    As a single mother myself, I think people like Kate do us a huge disservice, and cheapen the plight of the single mom.

    I am proud that even though I work that I still spend time at home with my kids, because this is far more important than milking some 15 minutes of fame. When I look at Kate I just cant honestly see someone who has her kids best interests at heart and I instead see someone who is more focused on self promotion and sadly, self pre-occupation than she is on her own flesh and blood children who just want to spend some time with their mommy.

    What is Carolae thinking? Kate is most definitely having to pay into social security right now. And, since social security payments are based on your earnings, I dare say Kate will draw quite a bit more that $500/month when she reaches retirement age. Think, Carolae, about the amounts she has earned from her reality show, book sales, DWTS, personal appearances, etc. As far as the kids college: did Kate now make it clear that all she does is for the benefit of the kids' future education? Don't be so critical and judgemental unless you can also think rationally.

    I posted to another story that I have actually seen Kate close up in person. And Jon.

    Kate was shopping at The Grove in Los Angeles and was really giving the sales clerk a hard time. Poor girl was in tears. Kate wanted everyone to leave the store so she could have the place to herself. She was really adamant that the store clerks drop everything to cater to her.

    I saw Jon in an airport lounge. Quiet, stayed to himself. Offered to get a cold drink for an elderly gentleman who had a cane and had trouble walking. Very polite.

    From my own personal interaction watching these two, I would much prefer Jon's company to Kate's. I think the kids would all be better off with him as the primary parent.

    A) She gets $20Ka month from the ex and still complains how she has to"work" to put food on the table and keep her kids in school. hmmm, how much do these kids eat a month?? Isn't public school free?
    B) She has to be gone all the time and would rather have a nanny raising her kids than co parent with yes,a wimpy partner, not a crappy father. If anyone has ever been divorced you know there is custody agreement with sharing of time, so I don't believe the things printed in the media about him being an absentee father. I'd like to see what the agreement states. This is usually public record. Wonder if they had it sealed.
    C) Kate now says her kids are having issues. That's a joke. If anyone watched the episodes in the earlier years, you could see which ones of the kids who where already messed up; Maddie being the one who should be watched the closest.
    D) Kate does to know what Jon is or is not doing. She is a control freak and I guarantee you her and her attorney both know it. I have heard, although not confirmed, Jon is still under contract with TLC and can not do anything until it expires. He obviously has money coming in from TLC still as he is paying the $20K a month.
    E) As a single parent of 3 kids, two that have had medical issues along the way, and had to work two jobs to support them as the ex decided to work when it was convenient for him, wour little family made due with the little income I had. we were supported by great family and friends and my now adult children have learned the value of family and working hard to get what you want. Even though I had to work, (would have loved a $20K month support pmt), I made sure to go on those field trips with the kids, go to the park and picnic, go to the beach, things that did not cost much money at all. Kate is full of crap. She needs to back with the poor I am a single parent line as she is not. Its nothing but greed.
    F) Kids already have college funds set up from TLC. They had to put 15% of each shows earnings into these funds. Kids are set to go to Harvard or Yale if they want to.
    G) Kate states she wants to move to California. Just try to dispute custody here. There is a little law that allows parents "close and continuous contact with each other regardless of him having a job. dare you to into a mediator and say he is unemployed or he is wimpy and annoying. My ex had some major issues with depression and alcohol and was still granted visitation. Hmmm, maybe the ex will support your move here after all.
    H) Kate TLC – Go away. There is nothing interesting about you or you family anymore. Just another reality show casualty.

    They keep on writing about them because you people keep on commenting about them. She's still on DWTS because people in the U.S keep on voting for her, not to sure why because she can't dance at all. All she does is cry to get sympathy votes.

    this is America ...the land of free enterprise where anybody can be anything they choose to be...I don't agree with all of her decisions and raising children is hard...since her almost deadbeat skirt chasing ex husband doesn't seem to be pulling his weight in the child providing department I don't see why she can't do it...I think she's doing the best that she can and a hellva job too...she's making her way and using her "5 minutes of fame" to get the most money outta if...why not? she has a lot of mouths to feed...Jay Leno brings up a great point in what does Jon do?- besides look "beautiful," wear expensive clothes, chase women and sue his ex wife?...GET A REAL JOB JON!!...STOP LIVING OFF OF YOUR EX-WIFE..Oh and btw stop whinning to everyone who will put you in front of a camera for 2 seconds...I say good luck Kate ...thanks for not letting the taxpayers pay for your kids...after all i have my own to feed.

    PLEASE- Kate is such a liar- claiming to do this for the kids- she is doing it for herself – she get 20,000 a month in child support and spent 7,000 for hair extentions- what kind of bull is that??? she stopped talking to her parents because their church had the audacity to give them unmatching cribs for the younger kids when they were born.bans her brother from the kids lives because they told the truth about her and her greed and concerns for the childrens safety and well being. she is a nurse and could support her kids on a nurses salary- I do – I supported 6 kids on my nurses salary- making sacrifices for my childrens sake not being GREEDy and having to live oin a mansion- GET OVER YOURSELF KATE- you are not a good mother nor are you a good human being.

Yes, she could be overbearing and yes, she yelled at Jon alot. but, i'm not sure who posts these comments but i don't believe alot of them have kids and if they do..it's one or two. try raising 8. you have to have structure or it will be chaos. Kate is a woman who instead of falling apart when her husband decided he couldnt handle it, she picked herself up and kept going...it's hard when you get a divorce and she is showing that you can keep going...even when you have so much on your plate. she loves her kids unconditionally..that is why she is doing what she is doing.

    And didn't this woman have ALL these kids by invitro? She planned both of those pregnancies to have all those kids, why doesn't she stay home and raise them? Instead she is having others raise them and say "it's my job." Please.... she's a trained nurse, she should go back to her local hospital and be one. She would at least be in the same state as her kids.

    I'd rather follow her career, through thick and thin, than the political theater these publicity machines churn out.

    There are a lot of bad people out there, politicians, organized crime, foreign threats and left and right-wing pundits; she is not among them. She is mostly transparent, self-effacing and quite aware of her limitations. Like anybody in our society she is doing well with what she has. She is pretty, even after having a bunch of kids, she handles the spotlight very well – could you? Would you get in front of millions without a dance lesson in your life and try to make it work? She has done quite well. Could you?

    I don't understand why people keep having her as a guest on their shows. I can't stand her and I won't watch that particular show if I know she's going to be a guest. I guess the entertainment world is alot like politics...no matter what the people say or what the people want...no one is listening. They are going to do what they want and the voter and their viewers are the ones having to suffer. Yes, I can turn the channel but why should I have to. The number of people that dislike the Gosselins out weigh the number that do like her. It's seems that everyone that does watch her or vote for her are watching her so they can watch her make a fool of herself. She's not an actress, she's not a dancer, she's not an expert on being a mom or a wife ..she's a nurse and she's a mother of 8 kids. A real single mom wouldn't have $20,000.00 a month in child support. A single mom would have to work and support her kids WITHOUT ANY MONETARY SUPPORT HELP. She makes me sick and she should learn the proper definitions, a single mom would have the kids 24/7 without an ex taking her kids while she works, a single mom would have to pay a babysitter (non a nanny). Get over yourself Kate...you're making Jon look like father of the year. Oh, another thing WILL YOU PLEASE STOP WHINING AND CRYING for a situation you created and for the choices you made and please stop calling yourself a single mom, there are many REAL single mom's out there that are supporting their children 100%.

    Yes we are tired of the Gosslin saga-she has exploited her children to make money. She is a nurse and could have a real job there are plenty of nurses out there who are single and have a lot of kids. She is not the only one in the country who is feeding 8 children. I do not watch anything that she is on, if she shows up I change the channel. I do not understand why CNN; MSNBC etc. feel she is news and throw it up on the front pages of their website.

    10 years from now when her kids are on drugs or in jail, she'll say "Gee, I have no idea how this happened? I always told them I loved them when I was away travelling cross-country doing my reality show!"

    There was a story in the news recently brought about by Michael Douglas' son facing prison for drug trafficking...that most of the kids of celebrities wind up in trouble because they crave their parents love...parents who are never there, parents who think that by being gone 24/7 making movies or TV shows they are providing such a good life for their families.

    Mark my words. Just wait and watch.

    I don't begrudge Kate making money. It's the American way. But good lord woman, let your husband have primary custody of the kids so at least one parent is with them. And pay the necessary child support to make sure they have what they need, since she says that is her primary motivation for doing what she's doing.

    Totally agree with KMA and others supporting a mom supporting her childern. No matter what anyone may think about her personally, you cannot blame her for eeking out every penny she can get now. When the kids get older, they won't be so cute and she won't have the opportunities she does now. Kinda like most professional athletes..they go for as much money as they can, cause their careers won't last forever. Don't like her, don't read,watch etc...pretty simple. But as a mom of multiples myself, IT IS NOT AN EASY JOB!!! But at least she isn't living off the taxpayers!!!

I have never seen a picture of her smiling when she is around her children. This is what her kids will remember, that their mom never smiled and always looked mad. How can you not smile when you are around children? I heard her say she isn't an absentee mother on an interview last night because she was always texting or phoning her "caregivers" to make sure everything was okay. I'm sorry, but how is that interacting with her children? Does she not know the meaning of absentee? These kids need their mother's hugs and kisses.

Apparently Jon had a career before Kate decided to become famous for having babies..... These are two of the poorest excuses for human beings I have ever seen.

    Fame is a fickle thing. Here today, gone tomorrow. For the moment, Kate is making big money.

From that point of view, it doesn't appear Jon will be a reliable contributor but I give him credit for being there with the kids as much as possible while she's away. It doesn't matter which parent brings home the bacon but it DOES matter that both parents are involved in actively raising the children, divorced or not.

    This Gosselin Industry is a glorified daycare paid for by people who somehow enjoy this trainwreck family situation. Plastic and tragic.

    It is a shame that she seems to be right about Jon, but what does she do?

    She's an author, a 'TV person' and a dancer?

    She writes about being dumb and irresponsible. As a 'TV Person' she is infamous for being dumb and irresponsible. And I don't watch that dancing stuff but it seems pretty clear that the show is only keeping her around for the train-wreck angle as everyone agrees that she cannot dance.

    So, again, what does Kate do?

    "Old Idol Fan" you are a MORON! She is no different than THOUSANDS of women who have huge families. She went wrong when she thought it would be fun to not have to work, and get paid for letting idiots like you, who have no life and have to live vicariously thru others, watch her on TV. She is undereducated and didnt' bother to figure out (or didn't care..) how much it would actually COST to raise 8 kids. And by the way, all life is precious, not just the ones that make you feel all gooshy inside when you watch tv. Grow a skin!

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!! She has been on every show I have turned on. Most mom's are not galavanting all over the country. They work ordinary jobs within easy reach of their homes and do not have their travels paid for by sponsors. Stop using the fact that you have 8 children as your excuse. You chose to have these children and you and your ex should have been more adult and tried to work on your marriage and relationship which, by the way, includes the horrific way you treated him in full view of the cameras.

    I love how this nation of imbeciles glorifies socially irresponsible birood mares like Kate Gosslin and Octomom. Yet another B media created B list celebrity to follow, flitting from inane reality show to reality show in the vain attempt to prolong thier undeserved 15 minutes of fame. Author? Dancer? You have go to be f'ing kidding me.

    I'm sure with the declining IQ's of this nation, in 100 years people will be raving about the literary genius of Kate Gosslin while giants like Tolstoy, Fitzgerald, and Hemmingway will be footnotes to that dark time before "reality tv" existed. I can't wait to leave this place. I would rather squat in a third world jungle fishing for subsistance than be subjected to this nations standard of "news" any longer.

    Agreed. kate and Jon both make us sick.
    And Kate is doing for their 8 kids.

    Tell me one basic thing, if you didnt had that kind of obscene money, why the hell did you go for 6 more kids, or why would you go for even 1 more!!
    You had 2 beautiful twins and just to be in news, you ruined your marriage, you ruined your kids life, i am pretty sure of that.

    It just kills me that people are commenting on how much they hate Kate Gosselin. Why read articles about her then? If you hate her so much, IGNORE HER! Is it too hard for you all to do that? Or are you feeling so morally superior that you feel the need to make comments that deride, debase, and degrade her? Sounds to me like all the haters need to:

  533. It's still a man's world!

    Everybody loves to blame the woman!!
    The man only needs to say "sorry" and all is forgiven.
    But the woman is always left cleaning up the mess
    and looked down on.
    Women are stupid......we keep letting the men off the hook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If she left and did not have a job...and he stayed with the kids.....
    he would be considered a SAINT!!! But its considered the least
    she could do!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's cute how she plays the "I don't know what he does, look at me though, I'm a single mom and working hard!!"...really?...Really?! I can't imagine she gets much time with her kids between Dancing with the Stars rehearsals and giving speeches to people. She should just go away. The world really doesn't need any more loud mouth, overly made over "celebrities". Take Sarah Palin, the cast of Jersey Shore and The Hills with you. Good Riddance!

    I'll bet she does not know what kind of clothes her kids are wearing today or what they ate for breakfast, or what the name of the kids teachers are either ..... because poor Kate has to travel to work! Poor baby.

    I think the public is unfair. Unless you walk a mile in her shoes, who knows what her thoughts are, her dreams are? Here's a young woman who CHOSE to carry those 6 precious babies when she thought her marriage was forever and she would be sharing those children and the enormous responsibility of raising them with her loving husband. It has to be an OVERWHELMING responsibility, and she's the type of person who shoulders that responsiblity – and as a mom, I suspect she would lay her life on the line to protect and care for those children. I recently saw a quote where she spelled out for the ignorant masses that she would be just as 'absentee' if she were to return to nursing and pull 10 hour shifts and work nights and weekends for differential pay to put food on the table and clothes on their backs. Granted, I think they could downsize to a more realistic (i.e., nice, but affordable) home, but kudos for her efforts. She has shown glimpses of her fragile emotional state on "Dancing", and it's easy to see that she's struggling to do the best she can. She will find her way.

    I agree....WHO CARES???? Does she actually think that her book will be a big seller thereby getting royalties for years to come???? Don't think so. If she's creative enough, she'll milk the system, TV appearances, etc. so she won't have to work much. Am wondering how she'll put the kids through college provided they go. Guess she's not thinking far ahead when she is eligible for Social Security. Without a work history, she'll be lucky to receive $500/month! Kate needs to settle down and get a reality check before it is too late.

    Her and John will always just be the two idiots that thought it would be a good idea to disregard their doctor's advice and (unnaturally) bring six more lives into the world. The only sympathy I have is for those kids. Disgusitng situation that should never have happened. .

    We all agree that we're pretty much sick of seeing Kate whether on DWTS, talk show circuit or just on the trash media; however, I do think that most of us are unfair towards her.
    Criticism comes cheap, in fact it is free...we go on criticizing her for wanting to be a "star" wannabe, but the bottom line is that she is making a living for the benefit of the kids.
    What if she were on welfare or some government program? I think we would criticize her anyway.
    So, for those of us that don't have anything else to do but meddle in other people's lives, I think we should all place ourselves in her shoes for just a while and then talk all you want. Remember, it is totally different when things are seen from the outside looking in.

Have we become that simple that she now has us watching her on Dancing with the Stars. Come on people - she should be greeter at Walmart- not jetting around the country with us watching her every move.
