As the curtains fall on Kate Gosselin‘s TLC show and the phones are not ringing as much as they use to, Kate is beginning to show her desperation to remain in the limelight. Kate plus 8 ends this Monday but Kate’s not going down without a fight.
When interviewed by Matt Lauer of the Today show, Kate commented that she was “concerned” with devastated fans who must feel as though they’re loosing a favorite next door neighbor.
Kate continued the interview admitting to Lauer that the shows completion came with mixed emotions.
“There is some relief, but also there is sadness, because it’s the end of an era.”
An era? Really? Personally I believe Kate may be suffering from delusions of grandeur as her main concern most probably lies with her loss of income, not her “devastated fans”.
Kate’s ex husband Jon Gosselin, who is never at a loss for words, offered a surprisingly sensible opinion as he advised Kate to perhaps focus on sustaining a more “simple lifestyle”.
According to RumorFix.com, Jon stated;
“Reality TV is not a career. Get back to a normal life…a simple life.”
Jon, who continues to pay child support (albeit often incomplete) and by his own account sees his children quite steadily, continued by stating he believed that things would work out in time.
“Things will work out the way they should work out. Obviously there are families out there that have several kids, people work normal jobs, and things work out.”
Not sure what Jon’s definition of “work out” is, but in this economy one will have to put in some extra “work out” if they want to make sure all those kids are taken care of.
Jon ended his interview by claiming that he has given up his reality career and leads a simpler life working as a computer support engineer.
“I go to work every day and provide for my family. I spend time with my kids, spend time on the weekends and enjoy a normal lifestyle.”
Kate on the other hand, ignored Jon’s comments stating she rarely listens to what he has to say. A point I might add probably helped move that divorce along quite nicely.
“I don’t really have anything to say about Jon’s comments because he doesn’t live my life. I don’t listen to anything he has to say.”
“Jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids and working a regular job. 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 get the best opportunities in life.”
As if on cue Gosselin made her plea on live TV; “I think at this point, the best opportunity for all of us would be me continuing in TV. ”
Unfortunately we will probably see plenty of our “favorite neighbor” Kate Gosselin in her latest spin-off on a network near you.
I wonder what novel idea she will pitch to the network…Kate’s Mistake…Kate’s Slipping Grip On Fame? SMH
