If We're Believing Books, Kate Gosselin Really Might Be a Monster After All

You probably never thought that it was even possible to think less of Kate Gosselin than you already do, but surprise! There's a whole, whole bunch of information in this brand new book, an unauthorized biography called "Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World," that claims that Kate is way, way more awful than we've ever given her credit for. 

The book, which was written by a reporter for "Us," states that Kate wanted to have babies just so that she could become famous. She allegedly followed the story of another woman who gave birth to multiple babies and saw that she was given lots of gifts and attention, so she wanted to hop on that train. Her ultimate goal, according to the book, was to be "the working mom's Martha Stewart." After she got pregnant with the sextuplets, she contacted television networks until someone gave her a show. But wait, because it's about to get a million times worse.

Kate allegedly wasn't even on the whole thing to be a mother, she just wanted the fame and the money, so she got other people to do chores and take care of the children and, of course, to give her money. She apparently asked everyone for money, from her family to her church to total strangers, and at one point she was receiving over $750 in gift cards a day. But now it's going to get even worse ...

This book also claims that while Kate wasn't really into parenting, she was definitely into punishing. Kate was allegedly very quick to give out spankings, and she would throw toys away or destroy them when angry. The author says that Kate insisted that the kids loved their spankings, which I probably don't have to tell you sounds like total terrifying nonsense. The author also says that he had access to Kate's journal, and in one entry Kate wrote that she spanked one of her sons "as hard as I could and thought I may seriously injure him," and she went on to pray for help to stop. There are also stories in which Kate scolded one of the kids by nearly putting his face in dog feces, and another where she put a child outside in the cold without a coat because he didn't manage to shut a door all the way.

Look, if even just a tiny little bit of this book is true, then it's probably one of the most horrible things we've ever heard about a celebrity. So can this be enough to ship her off to some remote island so that we never have to hear about her awfulness again? Please?

hope none of this is true, but if it is, someone seriously needs to contact CPS and see if the older children can validate this....such a sad situation for these kids

This book is written by a friend of, her ex, Jon. I am very skeptical to believe the stuff written in it.

Baloney. People are quick to condemn Kate but she's hardly a monster. The tabloid press needs to find a new target. Enough already.

Everyone will know the real truth when those eight kids grow up and tell their stories. I hope Kate realizes that some - if not all - will even write books. Until then, it's just gossip.

Serious? "One of the most horrible things you've ever heard about a celebrity?" Hardly. First of all, isn't this book written by someone who got the journal and access to her emails illegally through her ex? Sounds like an axe to grind. Also, a lot of people spank their kids...I don't agree with it, but they do. I doubt she got pregnant with all those kids just to have a tv show. Such a lame story!

I never cared for her, but I don't believe any of this. Seems like someone is just trying to sell a book.

I believe there is some truth in most of that...maybe not all, but some of it.

Just seeing the control freak weirdo that she has been on her show when the kids were small, yup, I can see it. Those two older girls do not look happy, like they are being forced on tv by the psycho mother.


She comes across as someone who will do anything for attention...at any price. I don't like her and I think 'she' thinks she is WAY more of a celebrity then she really is!!

It will be interesting when the kids get older and can speak freely about her, their dad, and their childhood. Having a camera shoved in your face for your entire childhood can't be fun. Not to mention all of the parties, vacations, outings, etc...not as a family, but in a fishbowl. SAD.

The content from the book has been verified. Most if not all has been taken from her ( Kate Gosselins) copyrighted diaries - which she threw out ( what an ass!) Robert Hoffman backs up each accusation with proof in his book. At the cost of $8.88 (get it?) - he's certainly not making a killing. She backed off on a lawsuit that she had initiated because their was no merit to her claims. If you choose to believe that she is the 'best mom' because she's doing 'it all alone' (false) or that because you feel this is Jon Gosselins revenge then IMHO you are a party to the child & animal abuse just as TLC/Discovery is. This book is well thought out & researched. And in my opinion Jon Gosselin is just as much at fault for not doing anything for the welfare of these kids as his ex-wife is in absuing them & the animals. Remember... We also chose to ignore the cries of the Jews during Nazi Germany. - how did THAT play out?

She could not be a fame whore if the media didn't give her the platform. As a parent of two I sometimes lose my mind. I couldn't imagine having eight. Also, if she isn't the one taking care of the kids then how can she abuse them? If there are others taking care of the kids then they must be present when she commits this alleged abuse. Shame on them for not protecting them and for not turning her in. I'm certain somebody would have come forward by now telling horror stories of the abuse they witnessed while they, not Kate, were taking care of the kids. This sounds like a bunch a whole lot of story telling, and not the truthful kind.

You bitch and moan about what a terrible person she is and want her to go away but you write about her every time someone says or prints horrible story about her. If everyone believes these stories then use the media to do something about it or shut up about it already because it's the same old tales from the same old people who don't seem to care too much about the welfare of the children if they won't take a stand and fight for their well being.

Please, alot of us have suffered through alot more abuse than that. Most of us were spanked...Big deal. You stupid 20-something writers always make a big deal out of the most minor things. If that's the most horrible thing you've ever heard, then YOU need to get a life.

Well, I can only say if in fact this is true ( which I doubt it)) where is the father in all this? If the children were being abused why didn't he do something? I think this is just one more ploy to make this woman look bad by Jon and this author. Meanwhile Jon is out womanizing, sitting on his ass, contributing nothing to the kids and he can't even hold a job!

Bipolar!!! Bipolar, bipolar, bipolar. This woman needs medication and counseling...look, let's not pretend this behavior is new. I am not defending her, I am saying this is not normal behavior. It is abnormal behavior. After watching her show and the way she treated her husband, I am not surprised he went off the deep end after they divorced. Living with someone with mental illness is not a walk in the park...Kids are resilient, and their kids are smart. I hope they figure it out and have a good life. It is possible after living with a parent (or parents) like this.

Just my 2 cents...
