Kate Gosselin — when you lashed out at your ex-husband Jon for being “mediocre” on the Today Show this morning Sept. 12th because he works a “normal” job, you insulted all of us regular parents who aren’t TV stars!

You made the insulting comments when you responded to Jon’s comment that “reality TV is not a career and it’s time to get back to a normal life.”

Here’s what you said to us and Matt Lauer: “It’s a situation where Jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids and working a regular job. I want the best for my kids and the best opportunities in life… and this has provided that.”

What? You just told all of us people who aren’t TV stars and who hold “regular” jobs, that we are “mediocre!” And that we don’t want the best opportunities for our kids.

Kate — don’t you realize, who watched Kate Plus 8? It was “regular’ moms and dads. Regular families. You just insulted all of your fans!

What are you thinking? Or not thinking!

99.9999 % of “regular” families will NEVER have the opportunity to have their own reality TV show. And they still want the best opportunities for their kids. And try hard to make them by working their “regular” jobs.

I’m sure that your ex– Jon Gosselin wants what’s best for his kids. He just feels strongly that it’s better for them NOT to be on TV. He thinks that normal, “regular” life not in front of the cameras has value for the Gossellettes that more than makes up for all the fancy trips to Australia and Alaska.

Jon doesn’t think that it’s great that his children have had to work through school and summer vacations to shoot the show. And that they’ve been hounded by paparazzi photographers when they’re getting on and off their school buses. He doesn’t think those trade-offs are worth it.

You do, obviously, in fact, you told Matt Lauer that “the best opportunity for all of us would be for me to continue to work in TV as a way to provide for my family,” and that you would put the kids back on TV “if the right thing came along.”

“I’m sure you will see my kids again at some point.”

I wouldn’t be so sure, Kate. Not when you’ve insulted the very people who made you a star.

Many of your Twitter followers saw it this way too and you’ve been forced to defend yourself like this! “@forever_trust Not wut I ment.was reply2 jons comment re I should get a ‘normal’ job-wouldn’t work4me $ w8kids kudos2allhardwrking parents!”

But Kate, I heard you on the Today Show and whether you were just caught up in your ongoing vicious war of words with Jon or not, you said it was mediocre to have a regular job. Hollymoms- check out our video clip from the Today show below.

And furthermore — you’re implying in your tweets that the only way to support eight kids is to go on TV. Yet in almost every large family the parents have to support themselves  the old fashioned way – with plain old, non-glamorous “regular” jobs.

Kate — you are off your reality show — the finale is tonight, Sept. 12, and I’m afraid it is back to “regular “life for you.

The sooner that you face reality and start living in it, the better, You need to learn how to make regular life, anything but mediocre, just ike the rest of us!

She just said that her ex is mediocre because he has the opportunity to benefit from the show for his kids but he chooses to have a regular job. Any loving parent on his place would take the opportunity of the show for his kids. Shes not insulting anybody.

Parents work their tales off with 2 or more jobs and still can’t afford to take their kids on wonderful trips and could barely put food on the table, they are not mediocre they are hard working and not an ugly spoiled woman, get a life Kate you are not a star and you DO NOT belong in “Show Business”

Kate didn’t insult anyone the who article is just stupid, and even more stupid is the poll. If I had that opportunity of getting paid that amount of money with so many kids I would have taken it.

When are we going to be rid of this woman. Her show is cancelled but I’ve seen her more on television than ever….leave woman leave…your not wanted anymore. And quit trying to get a talk show or something for your kids. Guess if you have to get a job you will actually have to raise your children instead of having nannies and housekeepers. You are so friggin worthless.

Bonnie: anyone who runs (or reads) the likes of Glamour, Cosmo, or Hollywoodlife.com loses about 20 IQ points automatically. Talk about content that is ‘insulting’ to all women… unless your whole world is about the best sexual positions, lipstick, and anorexic models. LOL, YOU Bonnie are such a hypocrite.

Bonnie Fuller (as do most of the posters here) clearly have comprehension issues. I work at what may be considered a ‘mediocre’ job, but wasn’t remotely offended by Kate’s comments. Why wouldn’t she (or any of you for that matter) jump at the chance to provide her children ‘exceptional’ opportunities? If I could make a quick $250k by having cameras follow my family around during a paid for vacation to Australia, Hawaii or the Grand Canyon… sign me up!

Melissa…Kate said that any job out of televison and movies are just MEDIOCRE.Kate got her millions by making the kids WORK and by selling every private moment that should have been just that,private!So you say you would do the same thing…You would show your kids poop to the world?You would make private moments like your kids kids getting kicked out of kindergarten,cause they cant handle being in the real world to a tv show? That says alot.
Why cant any of you kate suppoters answer why kate should have to work at all? She has made MILLIONS of dollars.What has she done with all that money? Any smart mother would have set things up for the future.Invested…made sure they were set.Instead…kate has blown millions of dollars.Find a real reason to defend this piece of s hit mom.

Grow up people,

Kate didn’t insult anyone. If working a regular job makes you feel insulted then that’s your problem. Any single mother with 8 kids would jump at the chance to make the kind of money she was able to make and give their children the life she’s been able to.

Kate is NOT a single mother.She has the kids father there.Doing everything he can…AS much as is he is allowed by Kate.Jon is paying child support.It may not be what kate wants to live the life of a rock star.BUT she was never one….not even with the kids.They were not born in to the life kate thinks she deserves.They were poor…baerly getting by with the 2 kids they had.Kate bullied Jon into have more kids they coudnt afford.
What has kate done with the MILLIONS she has gotten from having the kids work? There is NO reason for her to work.The kids have made her millions of dollars.Kate dosent want to be home.Kate doesnt want to be there for the kids.She is a very sad woman….begging for stupid people to take her side.

I love it when Kate Gosselin said the fans will miss the show. What I don’t get is if there are so many fans (I believe there are a HUGE more of haters(Kate speak), then why when she advertized on twitter to sign a petition to save the Kate Plus 8 show, only about 700 or fewer people signed the petition. Ha, Ha.

Get it Kate, most of the world believes you are a child abusing, mentally ill, self-absorbed, and LYING woman that has nothing to offer the entertainment industry.

Go away Kate, P-L-E-A-S-E.

Kate is going to have a house full of self entitled selfish teenagers in a few years. They are going to pull stunts, like getting drunk, drugs, posing naked all for attention, thinking that is how you earn money. She is not teaching them about a work ethic. She is lazy and looking for the easy way. She won’t go back to a nursing job, she’s full excuses, like day care would cost too much. She forgets that the kids are in school 10 hours a day and with Jon every other weekend. She would easily work a full time job and pick up extra per diem when kids are with Jon. Heck, Jon could have the kids an extra night a week, and that could be Kate’s grocery shopping or laundry night. She won’t, the is looking for a handout. She is uneducated, doesn’t even read a newspaper, knows nothing about current events. How does she fathom she is talk show material. She cannot speak a sentence without filling it with ums. The kids do not need to ever been on another tv show. Hopefully the law is on Jon’s side. Children should not have to work to support their mother. The kids got taken out of school to work, worked all summer. They did not get one vacation, RV trip was no vacation. Hopefully the kids can develop from true friendships now that their every move isn’t tv fodder.

Everyone I know stopped watching anything on TLC because of this woman. She makes $250,000.00 an episode that means when we get home from our mediocre jobs and watch 4 of her episodes she made 1 million dollars. Plus kids get paid separate, that she can do what she wants with, plus all the freebee’s mansion, cars, trips, designer clothes, designer sunglasses, ipods, computers, furniture, food, veneers, plastic surgery, etc. If she is on any of the talk shows, we turn the channel. If they put her back on TV full time again…WE WILL NEVER WATCH THAT STATION.

A portion of the quote represented by the ellipses is “not unlike every parent.” If you listen to her full statement, the meaning is a little different. She may have insulted Jon, but not every parent.

Let’s see, my husband just got back to work from being unemployeed after two years and we are still playing cath-up with the bills but we are so happy to have a mediocore job and it pays the bills (barely). She mkes me sick to hear her look down on her ex for not providing the same way she did. She’s a bitch and I will NEVER watch anything she’s on…she’s a neighbor Im glad, that is moving away.

I’ve never watched her since she chose the show over her husband and family. no one seems to remember when Jon ask her to quit the show and make their marriage work and she said no she was used to that standard of living she could not go back to a regular job was i the only one who saw that. Then everyone turned on Jon Everything i saw on tv was all about Kate. Kate buys this Kate gets plastic surgery Kate buys a new house Kate remodels her kitchen get the picture. Though she wants everyone to believe she did it all for her kids ya! and oh ya shes crying about how she will live now and she just bought a $60,000 car bet there’s nothing in the college fund. I hate myself for commenting because she so vain and you know when your mediocre you have nothing else to do. And this is what she wants bad publicity is better then no publicity.

Yes, now maybe her kids can learn what the “real world” is like…they have been spoiled by not learning simple things like standing in line to wait your turn at an amusement park – they get to go to the head of the line because they are “filming”. They maybe need to learn some REAL disappointment also…like the reality of “public school” like the rest of us “mediocore, struggling” parents are only able to afford.

Boo hoo hoo! Your poor idol’s fall from grace is smacking her right between the eyes! Every chance she can, she bashes the father of her children. Anyone who doesn’t live up to her standards, mediocre. IF she met you on the street, Stevie would block your way & she’ll look at you with contempt…you mediocre commoner! Be gone!!

BONNIE PLEASE? KATE DIDN”T SAY THAT! BONNIE YOU ARE WORSE THAN REGULAR PEOPLE YOU ARE A LIAR! YOU MAKE ME SICK. DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE IN WHAT IS REAL OR NOT? Bonnie if you LIE like this all the time I wonder what kind of kids you are trying to raise. How can you have great kids when you are a LIAR and a THIEF. You steal the truth and twist it around until it fits your purpose. I think that you have had a hand in hurting Kate’s kids and you sure haven’t made Jon Gosselin look like a real man and a father. TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN HOUSE AND MAYBE YOUR KIDS WON’T TURN OUT TO BE LIKE YOU! Don’t throw stones because you live in a glass house too.

It takes a “special” kind of fan to say “Kate didn’t say that” when IT’S ON VIDEO TAPE! I watched it live and was shocked when I heard her. Bonnie hit the nail on the head. It’s exactly what she said. Regular job = mediocre life for your kids.

Kate is a disgrace to mothers everywhere. She does not represent anything good about motherhood. She’s way too selfish and self centered to call herself a mother. Nothing at all for any divorced or single mother to relate to. How dare she out down middle class America because she wants to be a Hollywood starlet.
So glad Jon os going to put an end to these children being bused by their own mother.

Kate is about to find out that karma is a real b*tch. I don’t feel any sympathy for her whatsoever, but I do worry about the kids. When (not if – when) Kate is forced to downsize, sell her dream mansion, give up the Audi, the $2,000 haircuts, the trips to NYC and all her other luxuries, she is not going to take it well, and I am afraid her kids are going to bear the brunt of her anger and frustration.

If she goes to her kids school and ask the kids what the other kids parents do for work i guarantee that 98% work a “normal job” and still give their kids a lot of experiences and don’t live a life of “mediocrecy” she just needs to start living according to her possibility and if she doesn’t have money for private school and for a big house she just needs to downsize

Her comment is hilarious, it shows how delusional and sick she really is.

Let’s see, Kate Gosselin has a talent of what? Oh yea, selling her children to the highest bidder. Kate Gosselin was never on TV because of any talent she has, it was because she had 8 babies and was willing to exploit them for fame and money.

If Kate Gosselin can stay in the entertainment industry on her own merit and talent, I may think differently. But frankly, she is pathetic and worse than Jon. At least Jon is not willing to sell his children to the entertainment industry.
