Everywhere I look there are those celeb gossip mags and over the last month or so Kate Gosselin has been on the cover of every one of them. Turn on the tv, and there she is. Every where you look there is Kate, sometimes with her kids, sometimes not.
In case you don't know who Kate Gosselin is, she is the Kate of Jon and Kate plus Eight fame, the lady who had twins and then gave birth to six adorable babies. Kate is Caucasian and Jon is half Korean and a mixture of French and whatever else. It made for some gorgeous kids:
I watched this show faithfully since it began and the kids were babies. I remember when Kate gave birth to the sextuplets. And I loved the family. Kate was the main caregiver; she was always so organized. Jon, on the other hand, seemed to drift in and out of the caregiving business, leaving Kate to take up the slack. She was often harsh with her husband and received a lotta criticism for the way she spoke to him.
I've raised kids. Two of them. I can't imagine what it would be like to raise eight, six of them the same age! I did a good job, too, kept an immaculate house, was involved in school doings, church, the gym and kids' sports. I cooked nightly and baked a lot. I had no family around so we operated in self sufficiency mode.
Kate received a ton of guff for harping on Jon so much but as I watched this show, I thought to myself, "Jon, get off your ass and help her!" I would have nagged him, too. It was just too much for one person.
Eventually Jon and Kate split, she focused on the kids and he turned playboy. She wrote books, went on various tv shows, did what she had to do to support those kids. What is he doing now? He is sleeping on his brother's sofa and trying to get custody of the brood, claiming Kate is away from the kids too much.
This guy is a moron. And I'm so sick of reading where Kate is a bad mom, a bad wife, a bad person. I admire this lady!
Kate, I doubt you'll read this but if you do wander upon it, let me tell you, you are doing an amazing job. You're a beautiful, charming efficient lady.
Keep up the good work.
