That may be. Being she pimped out her kids and herself for a TV in pursuit of fame is pretty damn low.

sorry, that's how I feel. I couldn't give give a rats arse what happens to Kate and her 100 kids.


she should have been thinking about investing her money to have a good future for her children instead of having a brand new spanking sports car or a body guard.

So no I don't feel sorry for her.

If you read the whole thread, you'll find the majority of posters expressed empathy for her kids.

One thing I never saw mentioned was the fact that Jon did file papers in court awhile back expressing concern for the kids being exposed and exploited on national tv and he tried to stop production of this "show".

Her whole problem came in with her falling into the Hollywood "trap", thinking the money was going to keep rolling in, getting plastic surgeries, makeovers, expensive clothing, spending, spending, spending. She never thought about the day when people would tire of her and the kids and the show would be over.

The unfortunate part is that she could have made some kind of "comeback" with her and/or the kids but with the divorce and all the public airing of their "laundry", many people have grown to dislike and even resent them (Jon and Kate, not the kids) so any hope of a comeback is squashed.

I saw on some show that she's part of some couponing website (can't remember the name) but that's what she does for a living now.
I've wondered if she was an RN or an LVN. I know she worked in a dialysis clinic and worked on a L&D floor. I never heard she worked in the ER.

Jon had his mid-life crisis and behaved like a dumbass, but I have some respect for him and how he's behaving now. He's working a real, normal job, trying to give his kids a real, normal life.

Kate seems to think that is the norm....
There are tons of regular families with lots of kids. They work normal jobs, watch their spending, and don't try to live like celebrities. It can be done.

It is a shame she/they weren't smarter with the money. They could have bought a still large and private, but much more sensible house. She doesn't need the tanning, the clothes, etc. She was stupid to think that kind of income would last. It should have been treated like the fluke that it was, and she should have gone back to nursing a long time ago.

Having 3 boys myself, yes, I do feel for the children, as I feel for "Octomom" and her tribe. Children do not ask to be born, so yes, I will give you that.


However, Kate to me is nothing more than a Hollywood Glamor seeking idiot. Other than having all theses children, that is what made her a celebrity, if you can even call her that. I mean she was on Dancing with the stars, c'mom, she is not a star by any means.......

Jon, he is nothing more than a dumbell.

I will never understand why people on reality TV are called "stars." They can't do anything. They just act up in front of a camera, like a big-time home movie. What happened to dramas and comedies, and heavens, variety shows? (Am I showing my age?) If I want to see people act like trash, I can go to work and get paid for it.
