Exhausted Kate! She's Got Swollen Ankles And a New Show With Her Kids!

Poor Kate! Life as a hardworking mom is taking a toll on Kate’s ankles!

Kate Gosselin, the star of DWTS and two new shows on TLC put on an enthusiastic front but the stress of dancing, flying back and forth to LA, battling Jon for custody of her kids and now promoting upcoming shows — Twist of Kate, and Kate Plus 8 is definitely showing in her … swollen ankles!

When Kate took to the stage at NYC’s Lincoln Center, to tell reporters about her new TLC shows starting in the next few months, she looked super cute in a black and white polka dot dress but we couldn’t help worrying about her feet. “Both flying a great deal and increased exercise can cause swelling of the feet and ankles,” explains Dr. Rock Positano, Director of non-surgical foot and ankle service at NYC’s Hospital for Special Surgery. “When muscles, tendons and ligaments aren’t accustomed to that level of exercise, it’s common to develop overuse injuries. To get rid of swelling Kate needs to elevate her ankles at night and ice as much as possible,” he advises.

As for Kate’s new TV specials with her kids Kate told us, “The kids and I will be taking some adventures.”

A short clip showed the kids sitting around their kitchen table drawing pictures of places they would like to go on their trips. Aaden even yelled out, “I wish I could pack mommy in my backpack.” Kate, we bet your kids want to pack you in their backpacks. Now go home, snuggle with you 8 Gosselettes; put your feet up and ice before your dance partner Tony Dovolani arrives for your next practice session!

Those are called CANKLES and Kate has had them forever.
She’s barely practicing. Mani/pedi, tanning, shopping, whoring, begging crying, whining, shilling bitching are more important.

Really? With all of the crap that girls and women see in magazines and on the internet these days about the need for utter perfection, you’re going to have a go at Kate Gosselin about her ankles? Please . . . She may not be America’s sweetheart, but leave the cheap shots out of it. Your website champions a woman of size like Gabourey Sidibey, but publishes a post about fat ankles . . . Nice one.

Sorry those are called cankles. Kate’s ankles aren’t swollen, they look that way all the time. It isn’t from exercise, flying, or any of the other things. It’s just fat ugly cankles. If she’d really been dancing as much as the other dancers on DWTS, she’d be getting more shapely ankels. Check out old film of her and you’ll see these same unsightly ankles have been there all along.

Maybe she should just get a job as a nurse and enjoy her children.

If she get a job as a nurse she would have to work double shifts to provide for her children and rarely get to see them. She is going to get a lot more money with DWTS even if she does not win.

She’s not home.

She could eat a puppy and her fans would say, “she was very hungry, the puppy was annoying and she has 8, count ‘em, 8 kids.”
