It seems that Kate Gosselin's claim to fame—her family—may be all she has left after this season of her show ends. Her show Kate Plus 8 has been cancelled due to bad ratings. But it may not be the last time the reality star does reality TV.
JON AND KATE PLUS 8
In an effort to prove to the world that she has no interest in becoming famous by dating a quasi-celebrity, Jon Gosselin's girlfriend, Ellen Ross, is telling the world about her advice blog—and is quite happy to talk about it in a national magazine. From what we read over on Celebitchy, she recently did an interview with the National Enquirer, and is supposedly claiming that she's not looking for "any money, fame or profit from this at all" from her new blog. (Yeah, right!)
Jon Gosselin is apparently serious this time, as he's taken a big step forward in his new relationship: bringing girlfriend Ellen Ross home to meet his eight kids. "She is the first love interest to be introduced to his children," a source told Us Weekly.
Just because the show is over doesn't mean the drama is finished. In the lastest round of the Jon and Kate saga, Jon Gosselin wants to re-open his divorce settlement with ex-wife Kate Gosselin and sue her for custody of their children. Extra tells us Jon's argument is that Kate's role on Dancing With The Stars makes her "an absentee parent" and that she's now giving most of her parenting duties over to nannies. Kate's side says that the accusation is "downright offensive and outrageous." We agree. Is it possible that Jon's doing this because he's upset that Kate wants to move on to other men? Or was her dancing just that bad?
Guess what? Kate Gosselin has finally realized that her and Jon's ridiculous, never-ending battle for the spotlight is negatively affecting her children. Give that woman a kewpie doll! (Actually, you might want to give her eight or there will just be more fighting.) How To Minimize Kids' Anxiety During A Divorce The woman with the most famous hairdo since Jennifer Aniston recently confessed to Vanity Fair's Nancy Jo Sales that the stress from her impending divorce (and Jon's removal from the show's "equation") along with the constant media frenzy (appearing on tabloid covers more than even Brangelina) is causing the Gosselin kids to crack.
Can't a Tom Hardy-wearing, cigarette-smoking, schlubby reality star catch a break from all the bad press once in awhile? Not a chance. Jon Gosselin's descent into total despicability has been swift and pummeling—every day brings a new nasty revelation that his ill-equipped PR really can't spin. Most recently, Gosselin's former babysitter Stephanie Santoro revealed to RadarOnline that Jon hacked into Kate’s e-mails, text messages and online bank accounts, and set up forwards to his own accounts. Jon's camp fired back with some B.S. legal lingo about how he did not illegally invade Kate’s electronic privacy.
What started out as some condescending name-calling (on her part), affairs with trashy women (on his), We refer, of course, to Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin, their messy separation, and the latest allegations of wrong-doing being made public. Specifically, Radar Online reports that Jon recently emptied all but $1000 from the joint bank account he shares with Kate. How much money would that be? We don't know the exact figures, but we do know it's a lot. By Jon's own admission on the Larry King Show on October 1, he made $1 million before taxes during the last season of Jon & Kate Plus 8, and $500,000 after. Jon & Kate & The $10 Million Dollar Divorce
Plastic surgery has been good to Hailey Glassman over the years. The profession allowed her father to provide well for her family growing up. It indirectly led to her introduction to Jon Gosselin (whose estranged wife Kate Gosselin underwent a post-sextuplets tummy tuck courtesy of her dad). And more recently, it's helped her to feel more confident in her abilities to hold onto the D-list love affair she and Jon share.
The start of a new school year has always been a prescription for jangled nerves and anxious anticipation of things to come. But this year, the autumnal air brings more than new pencils, new books, and new teachers with dirty looks. This year the dirty looks are being tossed about not just at school, but at home as well.
Nonetheless, people who should know better continue to use it, whether defending their semi-clothed actions with the barely legal pool boy or explaining why they decided to start carrying on with a married D-list reality TV star who has a girlfriend. We refer, of course, to Kate Major.
