Kate Controversy! Should She Have Left Her Kids To Get A Fake Tan & Pedicure?

She left the kids at home with Jon to grab a little “me” time.

Fresh from her latest trip to New York — where she danced with Tony Dovolani on Live with Regis and Kelly on Apr. 23 — Kate Gosselin, 35, returned to her family in Reading, Pa., on Apr. 24. But instead of spending the day with her eight little ones who have been missing her since she’s been out of town so much, she left them at home with Jon so she could spend the day taking care of herself. After getting a pedicure, she was spotted paying a visit to her favorite tanning salon.

Sure, it may look to some of you like she’s not paying enough attention to her kids, but think of it this way: Rehearsing and performing on Dancing with the Stars couldn’t have been easy on Kate’s feet, so maybe she just needed to take care of them. And maybe she has a TV appearance coming up this week, so she wanted a nice tan to look camera-ready.

As for “neglecting” the kids, don’t forget she did just take them all to LA with her for a little trip!

What do you think, BFFs? Was it wrong for Kate to leave the kids with Jon to get a fake tan and pedicure, or does she deserve the “me” time?
