Kate Gosselin isn’t paid enough

September 14th, 2009 // 61 Comments

Seen here outside her hotel this afternoon, Kate Gosselin filmed her first episode as a guest host on The View and took that opportunity to whine about how much money she makes. Via People:

In response to Behar’s question about how she could place her life in front of TV cameras, Gosselin said it was a different story for the first five seasons. Things were “innocent.” Now, however, things can’t stop, she said – and, as a single mother, she needs the paycheck.
“Do they pay you enough?” asked Behar.
“Is anybody paid enough?” answered Gosselin.

At a minimum of $75,000 per episode which you film at least 20 of a season, I’d say, “Yes, Kate, you are.” But then again I understand all children need a million dollar mansion and a never-ending stream of free gifts from advertisers to survive. And now with the divorce you only get half that much, a paltry $750,000 a year, so talk about adversity. I don’t even know how you get out of bed in the morning. (Not counting the team of illegal immigrant nannies who carry you to the kitchen by rickshaw.)

    Hey Kate,

    How much did you take out of the kids’ account for your boob job. I remember when you got greedy when your plastic surgeon offered to do a tummy tuck free of charge and you asked him for a boob job and he refused to do it.
    Looks to me like you paid for one.

    Ok first and foremost, If she thinks she is being underpaid That is her Business. by the time those 8 Children are ready for College she will be paying 45-60 Tuitions. Not to mention Feeding, and Schooling them now.
    Yes 75k is alot of Money per episode. But you have to look at the bigger Picture. Leave her alone it is None or Anyones Business but hers.

  8. I meant, the state of Pennsylvania. That’s also why they haven’t left the state – if they do, no more free educations.

  9. She can get all the extensions and plastic surgery she wants, but it still doesn’t change the fact that she is a single mom with 8 kids. What guy in his right mind would want anything to do with a woman that has 8 little kids.

  10. But you have to look at the bigger Picture. Leave her alone it is None or Anyones Business but hers.
