how would all the kate haters handle that?
that is no excuse for her being the way she is. It simply is not a good enough excuse.
So many people had far worse childhoods than she. I've read about her childhood and it doesn't seem so horrible. Toxic-how so?
I know people who have horror stories about their childhood and they are now decent,nice,kind,caring human beings.
SHE married a momma's boy(your term,not mine) so why did she? I say so she could control him and she did-for awhile. When momma's boy got sick and tired of her behavior we watched it unfold on TV.
Anyone can see that both Kate and Jon will be fine...............soooooo much drama and the result? Soooooooo much $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Gee, didn't Becky Dilley work as a nurse to support her kids? Of course, she hadn't made a complete horse's rear end of herself on national TV, so maybe that was the difference.

In private.
Kate Gosselin chose to put herself out there, just like anybody else on the cover of the grocery store magazines. She can't even blame it on her parents like the Spears girls or Lindsay Lohan-- it's her own stupid fault.

I laughed when she said that she wanted to continue the show with or without the kids. Yeah you really are not in it for the fame and fortune but your kids. Keep telling yourself that Kate.

Yep...she'll do anything that's the best for the children. And mommy being very rich and happy, puts mommy in a very good mood, which is very good...for the children.

It's all about the children.

It is interesting to me that this total stranger can bring out such emotions in people. So much anger is directed towards Kate. I feel totally sorry for her. An innocent show started out and look what it has turned in to. How will this change the Duggars? The family from Table for Twelve?

I think it is just time to let them go. If people stopped reading the tabloids and the junk magazines, maybe they can live their life in peace and quiet. This just isn't fair to any of the kids involved.

I don't blame Jon or Kate for agreeing to do the show in the beginning. They needed money, and one or both of them have admitted on TV that they did it in the beginning for the money. I don't think they could have predicted how it would turn out. But, she's acted like a complete biatch to her husband. We've all seen it. I think they are both at fault for their marriage mess, but I really have a hard time feeling sorry for Kate.

The freebies started with the free tummy tuck...and just grew exponentionally from there. Both Kate & Jon (and probably TLC) took full advantage.

I always thought the marriage was doomed from the way she treated Jon. Once those OCC guys got ahold of him and helped restore some of his masculinity, it did not take long for it go sour...fast!

I get it!!! I should have turned the channel or turned the tv off. Do you ever turn and look the other way when you drive past a car accident? She is a massive trainwreck and I couldn't turn away. Sue me.

TLC can't still be making a ton of money on this show.

I have no sympathy for people who sell themselves for money. And anybody smarter than a paramecium could have predicted a massive and uncomfortable level of privacy invasion, what with...gee, TV cameras invading your home. Unless of course you're a complete media wh*re.

Of course, that begs the obvious question of whether the Gosselins are smarter than paramecia. One assumes that Kate is, if she managed to pass boards...so that puts her squarely back in the "media wh*re" category. Maybe Jon's sub-paramecium, though. Hard telling.
