Kate Gosselin is Broke

September 7th, 2011 // 172 Comments

Now that Kate Plus 8 has been canceled thanks to its complete transformation from a show about raising eight cute little Asian kids to a strange, twisted look into the glamorous new life of a soulless, rags-to-riches control freak, Kate Gosselin is freaking out in the latest issue of People because she has to get a real job now. Via HollywoodLife:

But Kate, who is used to TLC paying for her family to take extravagant trips to places like Australia and Alaska knows can already feel her life changing drastically.
“I don’t want to take anything away that [the kids] have been given,” Kate says. “[I've saved] for a little while. People think we made gazillions of dollars, and we didn’t. After the show was canceled, I said, ‘I’ll go back to my old nursing job.’ If nothing comes up, I’ll do it. But the scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn’t let me continue to provide well for me eight kids.”

And here are just some of things Kate has to ditch unless her children’s nimble Asian fingers are ready to build a whole lot of iPods:

Kate has a full staff which costs $500,000: “Kate employs two housekeepers, two nannies, an assistant, and bodyguard Steve Neild.
The mom-of-eight’s $2,000 hair: “That’s what Kate paid last year for a cut, color and Brazilian keratin treatment at Ted Gibson’s NYC salon.”
Kate’s sprawling $1.3 million estate: “Kate’s 6,000 square foot five-bedroom mansion in Wernersville, Pa., sits on 24 secluded acres.”
Kate spends $500,000 on her children’s private school: “Her kids are in private school. At 5 grand a month for each child that adds up.”
Kate’s shopping sprees that costs ???: “Kate’s fashion tab is hard to know. TLC picked up much of it — but she loves to shop!”

Here’s the best part about this whole story: This is a woman who’s been well-documented as recklessly shatting out eight kids for the sole purpose of landing a reality show and getting a bunch of free shit because there’s absolutely no way that gravy train would suddenly come to a screeching halt leaving her holding a bag full of rugrats she can’t afford. Talk about a completely unpredictable turn of events. I just assumed an angel from Heaven would float down to earth once a year and hand Kate a bag of money. Clearly that had to be the backup plan, so maybe he’s just waiting for the last episode to air and everybody needs to stop freaking out and secretly wondering if anyone would really notice if a kid or two went missing. Yes, there are eight of them, all identical, but just backburner that one for at least another week. Two at most.

  3. She sounds like she’s threatening to have to go back to nursing….oh poor baby. Sad but nobody wants to see your useless brood anymore…..we’ve got octomom to make fun of now.

  4. Alicia

    This puts a smile on my face. I knew this would happen to her eventually. The article is 100% correct about her having all those kids just to land a reality show; that fact has been posted all over the Internet with references to back it up. She’s finally getting what she deserves for being a selfish, greedy bitch.

  5. Laura

    So if “the scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn’t let me provide well for me eight kids,” then maybe you should have thought a little harder about that before you had them.

    Start a new TLC, “Kate that we Berate.” That should be a big hit. Although, “The Kate that we Hate,” might work also.

    How long till She tries to do Hugh Hefner and Playboy?

    Actually, now that I think about it, the next logical step for her is politics. With all the other nutjobs in politics, she’d be right at home. And she is the perfect pitbull for whatever party. Actually, now that I think about it a bit more, somebody should shoot me for even suggesting this.

  10. Karreem White

    She looks sad and melancholy now , but that’s all here craft and artfulness. She’d drain your bank account in a microsecond and throw you out in the street

  11. Frunken

    The nursing is a ploy, it’s reality show or nothing. She doesn’t believe in Plan B.

    thats right kate, dangle the childrens welfare in front of us.
    im sure there are lots of guys out there willing to pay good $$ to have their chained balls skewered over an open flame.

  15. downwithmuffins

    as reluctant as i am to stick up for kate gosslin..

    she had a condition in her ovaries which made her think she couldnt get pregnant so she did fertility treatments which led to the twins.. and after she took the fertility drugs again to have ONE MORE child she was pregnant with six.. she is not actually a technical octomom.. they did two documentaries on the family that were real with struggles trying to make it with eight kids.. the ratings were so good they got their own show…

    and then all of a sudden they both were transformed via magical ultra douche water and lost it all.. i wonder if the same would have happened to the duggars… lets see if they go all fame whore

    • Lee

      She got two kids first time around. That’s perfectly reasonable.

      The attention-whore bitch is getting what she deserved.

  16. Pat C.

    I’m sure she’ll be suing Jon for more child support.

    It is about time they cancelled her show, she is a BI@#H, fame seeking Who$%e, and no one really cares about her in the first place. She should never been on TV, and her X-Husband was lucky to get rid of her…..

  18. butt juice

    Not that I give a fuck at all, but Jon seems to be doing just fine without his $500,000 worth of assistants and ratty ass weave. Karma truly is a bitch, ho.

  19. KumaTenshi

    Read – “I blew all that money we made on stupid pointless crap, ie, haircuts, to try and stay relevant and put all our futures into the hope that we’d get another TV show like a fucking idiot”

    Didn’t this stupid bitch pull this crap before? Is this how it’s going to be? “Oh woe is me, I’m famous and nobody is paying attention, so guess what? I’m broke bitches!! Gimmie gimmie gimmie!!”

    Like fuck. Maybe you shouldn’t spend all your fucking money on extravagant crap constantly when you have it then, huh??

      I am taking all my lottery winnings and buying more lottery tickets. When I hit, I’ll be set for life.

    She has the cold dead eyes of a killer.

  21. anonym

    her botox injections are overdue.

  22. dee cee

    She used to be a labor and delivery Registered nurse? Um.. that might be a turn off career choice now..? And, think of the ill and elderly suffering.. while she tells them off for complaining while she is in charge and wants silence!

  23. dee cee

    Perhaps she and Octomom can run a bikini car wash operation?

    Kate, who spends her entire life controlling, coordinating, and confrontational
    approach to life, have left her and eight children without a concrete or stable
    financial future.

    *Let your children be happy, without a reward. Small things
    helps them to become “real” and happy adults.
    * Seek support from others to help both you and your children.

    Thank you and your wonderful children for a fantastic five years.

    So how long will the bodyguard be banging Kate now that she can no longer pay him for his services?

    I see a huge HALLELUJAH! coming out of SOMEONE’S house tonight, even if he did have to eat that slice of DIRTY PIZZA (gag). Now the long-suffering Steve can go back to clean work. Work that gives his soul much more satisfaction than being Kate’s “bodyguard.” Work like artificial insemination on a pig farm, or chief hose operator on the local honey wagon, or … etc …

  26. Sign me disgusted

    She’s broke, yet bought HERSELF an Audi TT convertible?????? That money could have paid for a lot of groceries, house upkeep, school activities, and clothes for those kids. I despise her.

  27. Tinklepants Astronaut

    Just when you think she can’t get more unlikable, BAM! she takes it to a new level.

  28. New show…

    “Eight is Not Enough”

    She meets Willie Aames at a Rehab facility, finds out shes pregnant with his set of quadruplets and there is atleast two seasons of following her preganacy, the birth, and Willie killing himself while Scott Baio joins just at the right time to boost ratings and to sleep with her because Willie wanted it that way. When the ratings go bad, then they get a new show…

    “Kate Gossellin is 45 with 12 kids and is single”.

    Blind date with Peter Brady and other washed up busted male slags from yesteryear.

  29. Fred

    Wow. I dislike Kate Gosselin’s exploitation of her sweet children, but what is with this “Asian fingers” stuff?

    The Gosselin children are part-Asian, but are also all American kids. As are many other proud Americans of mixed ethnic backgrounds. I believe one of the Gosselin children’s grandmothers was Korean. I hope the children are proud of that heritage, as they should be. I hope they are also proud of their Caucasian heritage. I hope that they can withstand racist slurs.

    The racist tone of this article disgusts me as much as Kate Gosselin’s unrelenting quest for money in exploiting her beautiful children.

    Obnoxious. I hope those beautiful children can survive their mother’s infamy and exploitation.

  30. Jason

    I cannot believe instead of putting some money in a bank or towards her children’s education she blows it on hair, pffft.

  31. forrest gump

    this tells you how dishonest this woman is…………………..A PROFESSIONAL CHEATER, folks!!

  33. Shawn

    Any bets on how long it takes for her to give in and sell herself to Larry Flynt and start making Porno?

    • von Slug

      Not until she finishes hitting every available option for ANOTHER show. She’s probably tried every network and film company up to and including HSN and the Weather Channel, trying to extend her fifteen minutes of lame. This is why I love how TLC is completely throwing her under the bus: who’d want to watch her bitchface antics anywhere else? Maybe she can do commercials for Pizza Hut? So yeah, porno, or she can do mud wrestling with Octomom, or porno mud wrestling with Octomom. I wonder how much money is left in her kids’ supposed “college accounts,” or rather how much money WILL be left in about a year. That hair isn’t going to cut itself, and Steve … Steve … Where are you, Steve?

  34. Raymundo McHorseradish

    GOOD!! Now this ‘clown car for a cunt’ can fuck off forever!

  35. Venom

    What is funny is that you know that this bitch is a Republican and probably yaps about handouts and shit when she has spent the better part of her life not working and living off the handouts from everyone and pimping out her kids.

    I am sure she will try to get some show like Nancy Grace where she can be sanctimonious and yap constantly about how she is better than everyone else.

  36. Marceelf

    The only post that could have made me happier than this would be a banner pic of Alexander Skarsgard doing nude full frontal. Seeing this cooze delegated to the has been rack is a close second. Well done, Fish!

  37. I wish I could be there when they repossess her tits!

    How can she be broke with gold trading over $1800 an ounce? Just sell some of that skin.

  39. Fail Flanigan

    What you all fail to realize is she’ll get picked up by some show to help her out. She won’t have to suffer the indignaty of being a regular person. She is a “Star” and there are some people who might like her. I hope she fails but that’s just me.

    • Rhowen

      Who[m]ever thinks khate is a star can pay her bills, her nannies, steve, her hair extensions, her nails, her botox, her saline maintenance [due in 8-10yrs], her…. her …. darn….it’s all about her… what happened to the kids????

  40. hitler mustache

    Is it to late for a late term abortion? Or 8?

  41. NeNe

    I do not consdier whoring out your children, as providing for you children. Welcome to the real world, biotch!!!!!!

  42. NeNe


    I do not consider whoring out your children, as providing for them. Welcome to the real world, biotch!!!!!!

  43. jlowejd5

    If only she could bottle her inner essence and sell it to those less fortunate women who have trouble being a cunt 24 / 7.

  44. Candice Conti

    Kate was suppose to bank half the money that she got from the show in her kids college funds according to the states of PA. The property that she owns is still both in Jon and her names and guess she is just going to have to sell it. Or she can have them dig for natural gas on her property to make money off it, so piggy doesn’t have to go to work and can continue to live like a queen that she thinks she is but we all know different.

  45. Paloma

    Who didn’t see this one coming a mile away?

  46. CBETH

    AS an employer, if I had to choose between hiring Casey Anthony or Kate Gosslein, I would seriously consider Casey Anthony. This is no joke. Kate – you are shit out of luck.

    • Allen Limewand

      agreed. There wasn’t enough evidence to convict Casey Anthony of being a bad mother, but for Kate Gosselin there’s what, 5 seasons worth?

  47. Jen

    Yeah, filing this under who gives a shit.

  48. kelly

    She was paid for raising her OWN kids, there is something morally wrong with that. Wonder what will happen to the kids now that she is no longer being paid to “care” (and I use the word loosely) for her brood. As she has constantly told everyone, “It’s all about my kids”. Yeah….because if it weren’t for her kids, she would still be the nobody that she doesn’t believe she is. You can take the girl out of the dumpster, but you can’t take the dumpster out of the girl. That’s why she looks so trashy, because that is what she really is. Welcome back to “reality” Ms. Kate. You are this generations “Mommy Dearest”!

  49. Allen Limewand

    HAHAHA! I’m so glad. Though I do pray DSS takes her kids away. She is not fit to be a mother.

  50. Pete

    She could rent out a room in her uterus.
