Eyewitness: Kate Gosselin Was 'Miserable' During Trip To Philadelphia With Her Kids

A local reporter who followed Kate and her eight kids during a two-day trip to the historic city says the reality star was distant with her kids, and spent most of her time talking on her cell phone (even as they ran up the famous Rocky steps)!

Kate Gosselin needs to lighten up! HughE Dillon, a local entertainment reporter in Philadelphia, Pa., followed Kate and her eight children while they were filming scenes for an upcoming Kate Plus 8 episode and he reaffirmed what we already assumed — Kate is “miserable!”

The reporter followed Kate and her kids to historical sites, museums, Starbucks, and even the Reading Terminal Market for lunch, while the children ran wild. But unfortunately, HughE noticed that the reality star didn’t pay attention to her kids, talked on her cellphone the whole time (including when they ran up the Rocky steps at the Art Museum), and looked like she was having a horrible time.

The next day the family continued to tour the City of Brotherly Love but Kate’s mood was no better. “They went to the Waterworks for lunch, the kids had chicken fingers, they were really pleasant,” says HughE. “But the nanny was the one really tending to them and Kate was off to the side… Kate was miserable, she seemed distant.”

We actually spotted Kate smiling today in a photo from Australia, where she is on an all-expenses paid first-class trip with the kids. Considering she gets to spend her life getting $2,000 haircuts and traveling the world, we think she should lose the scowl permanently — don’t you agree? Check out the video below for HughE’s account of Kate’s bad mood in Philly.
