Kate Gosselin Depressed Over Cancellation Of 'Kate Plus 8' & Feels Blindsided By TLC!

Thu, August 18, 2011 2:00pm EDT by 25 Comments

A source close to Kate tells us that the mom-of-eight feels blindsided with TLC’s decision and she’s very ‘depressed’!

Kate Gosselin might sound upbeat on Twitter but a source tells us the reality star feels lost! HollyBaby.com has just learned that the Kate Plus 8 star is very upset over the cancellation of her reality show and she basically discovered it at the same time as the rest of the world.

“Kate didn’t even learn about the cancellation from TLC until a few minutes before the story broke,” our source says. “Kate is devastated. She had no idea that her show was going to be cancelled, she thought this was something they’d film on and off until the kids went to college.”

A source close to the show echoes the same thing: “Kate thought the show would go on forever, she expected it to.”

TLC released the following statement: “By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future.”

Ratings for Kate’s show had hit below the 1 million mark in recent weeks. We’re not sure what Kate’s next move should be and neither is she: “Kate doesn’t know what she’s going to do, she’s getting lots of offers but hasn’t settled on anything.”

I find it really hard to believe that she is fielding a lot of offers. Sounds like wishful thinking. People tuned in to see the kids for the most part, not Kate the whining narcissist. Most of the public dislike her intensely so other than the shock value of having her on a talk show for example, they wouldn’t keep her around long term because her caustic personality drives viewers away. Also, when she did co-host on The View, she was completely wooden and contributed nothing other that making comments bashing Jon. I think we have all heard just about enough of that. If Kate really though her show would continue until the kids went to university it tells me two things. One, that she has made no real plans to provide for her children other than exploiting them and making them earn their own keep to provide her with the lifestyle that she now feels entitled to and two, she is even more deluded and arrogant than I could have ever imagined.

Good riddance to that fake, fame-wh*ring narcissist.

I wish her kids all the best.

She looks like she’s been rode hard and put away wet. Beauty may be skin deep but ugly goes right to the bone. Compare her mug to real celebrities the same age. No comparison. She “ain’t got no class”. Buh-bye.

In other words, kate gosselin means the world is suppose to support her and the lot because she has been used to this lavish life. Who’s fault? corporate TLC or narcisism or both. Why does this woman think she is entitled to be treated a royalty. Next, she’ll be on TV crying about lost “liquid assests.” And that the people has to help her. Well, then she should be talking to her fans. Maybe they’ll give her $250,000.00 per week to support her.

We all know how delusional she has always been about ‘who’ is her best friend (when they are not actually even ‘a’ friend), she’s always being ‘offered’ things, jobs, etc., when in reality no such offer was actually made. let her keep rambling, no one is buying it!

I think that picture is from August 8, after the Today Show she was waiting to go on Access Hollywood. They kept her waiting near the crowd, while Billie Bush (who is always sickly sweet to Kate) was talking with Kathie Lee Gifford for half an hour. I watched it live and laughed to myself that Kate must be fuming, being kept waiting, out there like a sitting duck. They would pan to her once in a while and she would be all smiley and waiving. I don’t think any network will touch her and definately not the kids. There would be too much backlash with everyone relieve that the kids are finally free.

TLC finally caught on that more people do not support the use of children to support Kate. It’s not TLC’s fault that their mother subjected them to be used. She was the parent in control. Kate is selfish, lazy and a liar. The show turned when the divorced occurred. No one wanted to see a show focusing on Kate. All she did was scream, and moan poor me. She’s underwater in a house they over paid for. Kate has no humility so she won’t get it that she is not America’s sweat heart. She is so angry that Jon has moved on and is making a good, simple life himself and his steady girlfriend. Kate is alone and will be for a very long time. She is just not a nice person. Watch the attitude she displayed towards Jon on the last show. Such contempt for her children’s father. She was not innocent in the breakup and destruction of the family. She wanted fame more than she wanted a stable family life. Hopefully the children’s earning are frozen and she can no longer touch them.

Too bad K, you had to know the day was coming sooner rather than later.What were you getting per episode? Some ridiculous amount. I know at least $250k per episode.

The Kardashian’s and their affiliates are worth over $75,000,000 annually – that is insane. I am having difficulty finding work as are so many other mid-level managers; same story as tens-of-thousands. And these folks are gettings millions!

I am tired of some “stars” getting $20 million dollars to appear in a movie….unfrickingbelievable, right?

Hollywood “stars” and Sports “Pros”and the un-wordly amount of money we pay them; and don’t be fooled, we do eventually pay them. Over and over.

And these freakin “reality people” are so overdone; and so over paid (regardless of public opinion.) Enough said

Create shows about people who are getting back to work and getting their family back together.
Shows about people creating NEW jobs – that’s jobs that have NOT previously been in th economy-. Help people who need it and will truly appreciate the assistance.

Wonder if she’ll go back to grifting churches for money? She was still begging churches for money after she and Jon bought their 1.3 million dollar estate!! Selling photos of the kids for $20 a pop at every speaking engagement.

She can always say she’s had a ”Come to Jesus” moment and wants to be forgiven for making her 8 kids work their whole lives…..Coming soon to a church near you……

Kate is so overdue for an IRS investigation. All the “cash only” demands for pictures, church appearances, etc. Karma is a bitch and it is going to bite Kate in the butt. She is going to a very lonely woman for a long time. No man is going to go near her. Her kids will leave and never look back once they are able. She is so cold. She will be begging one day to see her grandchildren and they will remind her that she stole their grandparents and family away from them.

She didn’t see this coming? We all saw it coming about 2 years ago, did/does she want to be mom or a reality TV person? OR a nurse!

Let the kids live normal lives, let them be adolescents all without TV cameras and really haven’t seen enough of her

Wonder if she will sell the house? I seem to remember her saying that the house was for the kids, so will she pay for it out of their earnings

@Mary Ann: I totally agree with you. Why do people find it so fasinating watching these children? They are kids and they deserve their privacy. If Kate wants to starta career on t.v. by herself then that is fine but she should not exploit her children so she can live a lavish lifestyle. People are fed up with her whining and lying about being broke. She actually said on twitter that she couldn’t afford gymnastics for her children yet she can afford to pamper herself with clothes, shoes, cosmetic procedures etc. She is so full of it. I used to like her when she started the show but I can’t stomach her now. I won’t watch anything she is on.

If TLC really didn’t tell Kate about her show being canceled, I would find that hilarious. Maybe Kate was too full of herself and making too many demands. With falling ratings, maybe TLC was all too happy to be rid of her. Letting her find out via the media was just icing on the cake for TLC, a sweet little pay back for their “Hollywood wanna-be” diva.

TLC made a big mistake when they signed Kate up for K+8. The show was OVER when she divorced Jon. She was going to have her way or bust. Well, she got what she wanted and now they have hung her out to dry, just like they did to Jon. Her contract runs until 2012, so I doubt she will be a free agent until then. She also better keep that big, lying mouth of hers shut or she will get sued by TLC just like Jon did. Karma has finally hit Kate, so let it roll!!

IF TLC did not notify her directly, WOW what a huge diss! I guess they got fed up too. LOL She is practically begging for work “via phone email” or whatever. I doubt seriously if she is “getting lots of offers”. Maybe the H8R show where haters meet the celebrities they hate. The producer of that show also produces Bachelorette. He said no to Kate on that show. And why would she be blindsided? No one talked to her about ratings? of course they did that is why they had her join twitter. Exactly why the make over too. This new and improved Kate. Oh well, as long as the kids are off the TV have at it.

BooHoo!! Karma has finally bitten her in the butt! Can’t imagine what offers she’s getting. She’s mean, cold and boring. I’d rather watch paint dry then to watch any show that she would be on. If she does get some sort of show it will be very short lived. No one is interested in her. Hope the kids lives will be private. People need to to be entertained by their own kids not someone elses!

If she was truly “blindsided”, she’s really living in her own little world. It’s been rumored for months.

I’m sure she’s very depressed. Her life for the past five years has been a narcissist’s wet dream. Time to wake up, Kate.

Waaaaah!
She knew. She had her twits make signs and parade around their communities making complete idiots of themselves.

Now her fans are making Petitions to save the show. They want to watch these kids until the day they (the kids) die. Sad and pathetic.
