While promoting the final season of Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin stopped by The Today Show this morning where she basically shot down Jon’s advice for her to get a real job and provide a normal life for their kids:
“Well, it’s a situation where Jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids, and working a regular job,” Kate said. “But I want the best for my kids and the best opportunities, not unlike every parent. I think to be a good parent is to work as hard as you can and give them the best opportunities in life, and this has provided that.”
“This” being television, which Kate admits she hopes will continue to be a part of her life.
“I think at this point, the best opportunity for all of us would be me continuing on TV as a way to provide for my kids,” she stated. “Something that’s exciting and challenging for me has been TV, and I wouldn’t be opposed to it.”
Keep in mind Kate Gosselin is broke, so when she says, “the best opportunity for all of us,” she really means, “Holy shit, I didn’t plan for dick and spent all our money.” I also like how she just called her entire audience “mediocre” for working “regular jobs” like normal people who provide for their families without profiting off their kids, so it’s really a huge surprise her show was canceled. I just assumed people loved being condescended to by an uppity blonde bitch entirely detached from reality. Back me up, Gwyneth Paltrow, provided your head didn’t just explode from being mentioned in this post.
