What do they say about haters gonna hate?

I'm constantly seeing ads for qualified Registered Nurses at very good salaries. I thought Kate wanted to get out of the spotlight and just live a normal life?

Oh, that's right, no one will point a camera at her 24/7 and, based on what I've seen of her TV appearances, her bedside manner would result in a thousandfold increase in lawsuits, suicides and her fellow nurses pelting her with full enema bags.

What about her 'Weener down the Hallway' recipe?

/thought she'd be doing interracial porn by now.

no sympathy for anyone stupid enough to buy her book....

GET A JOB,  you nasty-ass shrew.

Can't she just leak a sex tape like a normal pseudo-celebrity?

I think her being a Druggar Junior kills that.

She's really taken the next step in her downward spiral.  In the supermarket I saw her on a magazine cover, and they're taking the train-wreck route now.

The headline was something like "she used to have a substantial fortune, but squandered it all on bad decisions and multiple plastic surgeries."

She would probably have to get re-licensed. I suspect she has not kept up with her continuing education credits or license payments.

Here's where I'm confused.  These are ONLINE reviews of people that buy cookbooks?  They can leave an online review, but they can't look up one of the farking hundreds of thousands of recipes online?

I can see certain specialty cookbooks still being a thing and I think vintage cookbooks are cool, but regular everyday cookbooks? With no reviews or suggestions from others who have tried it? No thanks.

Well at least the plastic surgery wasn't botched. She's got that going.

Though unemployable single mother of eight isn't exactly marriage bait.

There is nothing more satisfying than watching this biatch fade into obscurity, and she can do nothing but stand there and watch it happen while she goes broke, Because she sure as hell isn't busy taking care of her kids.
 
2013-11-11 10:34:20 AM  
In her defense of her cookbook, her secret ingredients of whiny, entitled shrew and desperate attention whoring sociopath don't translate well to print.
 
2013-11-11 10:40:23 AM  
That's a shame.

Might as well get to the inevitable and contact Vivid.

I think you and she may have vastly different definitions of "normal". 

Oh, that's right, no one will point a camera at her 24/7 and, based on what I've seen of her TV appearances, her bedside manner would result in a thousandfold increase in lawsuits, suicides and her fellow nurses pelting her with full enema colostomy bags.

FTFY

Ok, I'd pay to watch that but only on basic cable

There are few reality celebrities that deserve more of a fall from grace than this biatch.

It's amazing how through all of this Jon Gosselin actually comes out as the lesser douchebag.

Even if she did, nobody's gonna hire her, to much liability

Yeah, I would have a hard time trusting her holding to HIPAA standards. If she saw the opportunity to get back into the spotlight, she would tell all.

Meh I bet 99.5% the "extremely positive" reviews in the recent days are some PR firms desk jockey paid to type them up and post.

No doubt. It is amusing when there are several unusually positive book reviews amongst the many "meh"s, and the glowing reviews all sound nearly exactly the same.

That's mostly because Jon Gosselin had the good sense to disappear and STFU.

This biatchy twat never got the memo, and anything that makes her look worse is A-OK in my book.

I always wondered about this family... where they this nutty BEFORE the reality show or did the reality show cause the breakdown?

On the one hand, it is a special kind of stupid to go through with a sextuplet pregnancy (or if you didn't want to selectively abort, don't put 6 eggs in you).

On the other hand, being watched 24/7 and having egos inflated by handlers will do a number on the pysche, especially when you have 8 ankle biters running around.

I really worry about the kids, not gonna lie. I seem to recall stories of the younger ones *missing* the cameras in the off season: For them, it was *weird* when they weren't being filmed.

I mean, WTF.

I can't believe I'm saying anything that might be taken as defending this twunt, but she didn't go through artificial insemination. She took clomid, the same drug that gave them twins the first time. Only this time it caused hyperovulation which is a known possibility with this drug. Then they had sex (sorry for the mental image) and voila, a litter.

Personally, I think she was stupid to risk even the clomid when they already had two healthy kids. And especially if she couldn't deal with the idea of selective reduction. But two kids would not be nearly enough love for her (eyeroll).

I thought the dlisted article on this (and many of the comments) were pretty lulzy and spot on.

FTFA:
Kate's latest contribution to the  You're Still Here? files is a cookbook titled "Kate Gosselin's Love Is in the Mix: Making Meals into Memories". Recipes include "Stewed Jon Balls", "Slow Cooked Children's Spirit Smothered In Crushed Dreams" and "Sugar Cookies Everyone In Group Therapy Is Going To Love". Fine, that's a fat lie but I wish.

Because I saw it on Discovery's latest show, "Eastasia: The Always Been at War".

 STILL. If you're on fertility drugs you should know that an unhealthy multiples pregnancy could be an outcome and should be prepared for selective abortion.

The fact that they both went off-the-rails leans me over towards the "Reality TV farked them up", they probably had some of these traits but handlers exacerbated it into the complete train-wrecks they are today.

Really, what recipes aren't?  It's not like there are really that many people breaking new ground in cooking.  How often do you see a recipe that isn't a warmed over version of some traditional recipe?

depends on where/what you like to read/watch/dine-at/etc.

for example, you could visit Alinea on the high end of the scale, or you could just follow average-blogger type people who construct 'traditional' recipes on the low-end--- and still come out ahead of kate gossipkunts book, or any other like it.
