Kate Gosselin's Mania Just Hit a New Low

Kate Gosselin is looked upon as one of the most heinous reality television/celebrity mothers in TV history and is often compared to "Mommie Dearest" ... and for good reason: she's a pretty terrible -- and terribly selfish -- person, and now there are some even more serious allegations out there than the ones we've always speculated about behind closed doors.
Kate's former nanny recently gave an exclusive interview where she made claims about Kate's preferred housekeeping habits, her real relationship with ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, and why she finally ended up bailing on the job altogether.
This is her side of the story:
"We always had to refer to the [house rules] manual because it listed her pet peeves. You couldn't put anything on the ground. You had to put shoes in a certain spot. You couldn't close doors loudly. You could only vacuum during certain times of the day if she was home. ... At nine o'clock, everything was done. Even if I was halfway through dishes, at 9 p.m. you had to stop. She told me her day ended at 9 p.m, no matter what was going on."
Kate even allegedly went as far as to have the nanny listen in on phone calls between the children and her ex-husband:
"When Jon called the kids on the phone, Kate said to us nannies, ‘You are Kate, so always listen in on the phone calls. ... We always had to keep an ear and eye on what was going on. Kate would say she had no problem with the kids having a relationship with Jon, but it always felt like a façade to me."
The former nanny states she tolerated as much as humanly possible, and only ended up leaving the Gosselin house after allegedly witnessing Kate physically striking one of her younger sons with a plastic spoon.
Horrible, right? And it sure sounds like everything's just falling right in line with what some people have been saying for years, doesn't it? It's sad and frightening -- all of it -- and it's no wonder some of these poor children act out in the manner they do.
To the people who say that the elder Gosselin children are out of control and misbehaved, now maybe it's possible you have your reason as to why.
