We already know the ‘Kate Plus 8’ star is estranged from her own family, but sources are now saying she doesn’t have any close friends!
Just in time for the holidays, Kate Gosselin has sunk into a deep deep funk. RadarOnline.com reports that an “associate” of Gosselin’s says Kate is “sad and lonely” and rarely does anything that doesn’t involve her eight little Gosselins and her TLC reality show, Kate Plus 8.
“The truth is Kate is really sad and lonely with few true friends,” says a source. “Her bodyguard Steve Neild is the closest person to her, but he’s married with two kids of his own.”
But here’s what is important to point out in the case of lonely Kate: the TLC star is the second oldest of five children: Christen, Kendra, Clairissa, and Kevin Kreider. Kate grew up not very far from where she currently resides in Reading, Pa., and her father, Kenton is a minister in a neighboring town. Kate’s brother Kevin used to appear on early episodes of Jon and Kate Plus 8, but he and his wife, Jodi, were quickly booted after voicing concerns that the children were being exploited by TLC.
Even though Kate tries to keep a low profile in her hometown of Reading, Pa., sources close to Kate confess that the locals are turning against her!
“They don’t think greatly of her and she is not popular at the local stores, post office or car wash, because she cannot win people over and comes across as cold and aloof,” says the source. “Kate just finds it hard to be friendly towards people and is very domineering – at the moment she is pre-occupied with looking her best and keeping-up appearances.”
Even though Kate was thought to be having an affair with her long-time bodyguard, the truth is, she isn’t seeing anyone.
“Kate has money coming in but nobody to share it with,” says the source. “Having her own reality show has come with a price for her but ultimately that was her own choice.”
