Quotables: Kate Gosselin Thinks We're All as Dumb as Kate Gosselin

"Hear me very clearly. 
If there was another way to singly support eight children, you would not know this name and I would be on an island, and so would they. You would never hear from us again."

--Kate Gosselin tries to tell the world that if it weren't for the money, she would never do reality television ever again. Yeah, OK.

Does she honestly expect that anyone would ever believe that? She can use her very serious, very creepy tone all the wants ("hear me very clearly," please), but everybody knows better. For someone who's suddenly claiming that she'd rather not be famous, she sure has done a whole, whole lot of work to undermine that. And sure, providing for eight children is surely super hard, but people have taken care of that many kids and more long before reality television was a thing. It would be way better if Kate just said what she meant: she's tired of being so thoroughly disliked and she'd just rather not play anymore.

She's disgusting, not to mention a lousy mother.

seriously?????Geez, lady, are you sure it's about supporting your kids, or perhaps your lifestyle? Costs a lot of money for hair dye, fancy duds, and what not, why not use the money and put it in trust funds for the kids. Without them, you'd just be another average Jane having to work a real job. 'Nuff said!

Come on, we all know she's forcing her kids to do TV again because she loves FAME, FORTUNE AND ATTENTION. She had a bit of taste of Hollywood fame even as a D-Lister and tons of money and freebies so why would she let all those perks go? She knows she wouldn't be able to get any of those IF NOT FOR HER KIDS so there. This woman is such a hypocrite.

Like Kris Kardashian and the Honey Boo mother, this woman will DO EVERYTHING she can to use her kids for FAME, MONEY, MEDIA AND PUBLIC ATTENTION AND EVERYTHING THAT HOLLYWOOD COULD PROVIDE even the D-Listers like them. She's a registered nurse and if she will ONLY practice her education she can definitely be able to provide a decent living to her kids even by herself. I have friends who are registered nurses and they do live such a nice life. A registered nurse earns from $75K and upward and if she saved all the earnings her kids got from their past show, those kids' future should have been set. So all these excuses of this hypocrite woman has nothing to do with being a single mom but has EVERYTHING TO DO with her thirst for Hollywood FAME, FORTUNE, PERKS AND ATTENTION. It's really not about her kids but ALL ABOUT HER. She's really such a hypocrite. Pathetic.

How does Kate think we're as dumb as her? Octomom has 14 children and look what she did. She committed welfare fraud and a porn movie. Perhaps it'd be better, you think, for Kate to get on welfare too and do porn? Or should she split her family in half and allow Jon to raise half? Isn't he a bartender? Lol

Dear Kate-has it ever occurred to you to go back to working a real job? My MIL is one of 13 children. Guess what her parents did to raise them? They worked! It's crazy how it all works out. Maybe you live in a small house, maybe you don't get to buy all your organic foods-you can eat some processed crap like the rest of us. Maybe they wear hand-me-downs, or even (gasp) shop at a thrift store! Your biggest enemy is your ego, and your temperament. You are far too self absorbed to be functioning in the real world. But if you truly loved those children, you would be willing to put that Hollywood period of your lives to rest, and get back to the art of creative living. Plant a garden! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH FOOD YOU COULD PRODUCE, WHILE TEACHING THOSE CHILDREN THAT TOGETHER, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING??? You gather them together, apologize for letting them down, and get busy making it right. It's NEVER too late!

Come on! Give her a break. She wants to be able to spend time with her kids as well make money to support them. Remember she's a single Mom now. Last I heard the EX was waiting tables so she's getting zilch support from him!

can't stand this freeloading person, but she is right as to do what it takes for her kids. that said maybe she wouldnt need a fakeallity scripted show if she knew how to manage her handouts... does she really need a swimming pool(it cost alot to maintain) a top of the line van(gas guzzler). she should learn to stay within her budget so she doesnt have to be on tv and asking for handouts...oh and think of all the money she spent on herself to look the way she does, sadly you would think she would look better..

I've watched the show since the very beginning and I think that she is doing a great job. Before we start to judge her, lets remember that she has 8 kids to take care of. I think she is doing her best, all of her kids seem healthy and happy and don't have major issues. I believe she was a nurse or something of that sort at some point but had to stay home to take care of the kids. She can go back to the long hours she was doing before and come home to 8 kids or she could support her children and her lifestyle with the TV show and other media gigs.
