Kate Gosselin's Having Major Financial Problems, Says Source

Kate Gosselin

Kate is still working as a blogger at CouponCabin.com, but it’s not bringing in enough dough, a source tells HollyBaby.com. In fact, her bodyguard Steve Neild works for free!

Kate Gosselin, 36, has big problems on her hands. A source tells HollyBaby.com that the only reason Kate decided to host a Royal Caribbean cruise for this upcoming summer is because she’s “strapped for cash.”

“The last thing Kate wants to do is hang out with complete strangers,” a source says. “She’s doing it for a free vacation and because she needs money desperately.”

Kate’s long-running TLC reality show, Kate Plus Eight, was cancelled a few months ago, and Kate has since taken a job as a blogger. Ironically, her new job is about giving money-saving tips.

“Kate wants her own show, a talk show, but it’s just not panning out,” the source continues. “Kate doesn’t know what’s next, but she’s doing whatever she can to make money for her and the kids.”

Kate is known to take her bodyguard Steve Neild with her on trips and appearances, which led us to question how she can afford him.

“Steve works for Kate for free,” our source says. “If she ever pays him, it’s the bare minimum.”

I have to say that is one cruise I would never go on. MAybe she should simply go back to work, I believe she is a nurse of sorts. If she hadn’t blown through all her money on spas, shopping trips, a huge house ,with all the money it takes just to keep afloat,hair care,pedis, etc, .She might actually have money, sell the house, move into something affordable, put those kids in public school, get a real life. Tv is gone for good ,I hope.

Oh, oh. Financial hardship in raising her 8 will be nothing compared to the lawsuits she will fight when her kids get older and turn around and sue her for spending their hard earned and exploitative millions.

I am sure her kids will say, how can you put a dollar amount on exploiting my childhood?

OMG!!! Kates skin is worse than sandpaper and her forehead is loaded with zits! Makeup is caked on her face so thick and yet the ugly comes through! My mom is 72 and has a nicer neck than Kate, good grief what has the woman done to herself? Wanting fame more than a loving caring family has it’s price and she is paying heavily!

Karma is going to pay Kate back in spades. She deserves what she gets. Happy to Jon that he is happy and free of this horrible woman, but very sorry that the kids have to live with her for now. She refused to downsize or sell one of her 3 lux vehicles – so she can’t be hurting too bad. She’s still going to NY for hair and staying overnight w/ Steve. She’s got millions hidden.

Hey Kate, why don’t you stop twittering for half a second and spend time working a “real” job and taking care of your children.

You are keeping yourself in a pretend world with pretend friends. It is very scary the way you pine yourself away on twitter 24/7. How many of your twitter fans have signed up for your cruise????? Exactly. Get a life.

This dumb biotch sits on her flabby leathery azz and expects money to fall out of the sky. If she’s having financial problems, it’s because she was too dumb to live within her means. I’d laugh but there are 8 kids who get to suffer for her delusional money spending. Word to fugly: GET A JOB. Sell that money pit of a house. Buy a clue, no one wants you in the entertainment world. You are too ignorant and illiterate and shallow to hold your own for a talk show. Plus no one’s interested. God, she’s so stupid.

She should stop with the trips to NYC to get her hair done by Ted 950 hair cut Gibson, she should stop tanning. SHE should stop traveling on her ‘mini’ vacas. And perhspa she should have thought about this before buyng 3 THREE LUXURY vehs since she got fired. This is her or her PR putting this crap out, since people are giving her crap about accepting and hinting constantly about stuff she wsants. I have never in my life seen a so called celibry JUMP to give out her address if someone asks for it to “send her a girl”. This lying user. Go back to work lazy cow.

Steve gets paid with sex. Apparently, he has a thing for fake weaves, fake boobs, and a nasty personality.

MUAHAHAHAHA!! Karma is a B!TCH & she’s biting C-atie Kreider in the a*s BIG TIME! On twitter she’s b!tching @ her twat followers & having a MAJOR meltdown with whomever hints @ asking her WHY she’s trolling for freebies on twitter. Example, “…scrounging for laptops…” or asking, on twitter, if anyone knows where to buy chalkboards. OR complaining about her coffee machine broken. Uber grifter to the MAX!

She can always SELL her Audi OR SELL the house & downsize OR enroll the kids in public school OR STOP the tanning/spa treatments OR ….you get the idea.

I’m not surprised. She hints to her fans on Twitter about things she’d like to have and they send it to her. I didn’t realize she had squandered away all the kids’ money on herself. Wow.

The funny thing is Kate cried and cried “poor me” when she had the infants to take care of. Millions of dollars later she is still on TV and her twitter to cry and cry “poor me.” See a pattern? And the worst part is her children had to work for their keep! Pathetic.

I am an RN. Kate made it sound as if nurses make no money. The truth is Kate does not want a regular job as she feels she is of Hollywood status now. Working as an RN is beneath. I live on Long Island which has very high taxes, the housing market is high as well. Plus I am paying out of pocket for my daughter’s college, on a nurses salary. Kate needs to swallow her pride and realize no one is interested in her anymore.

I can’t get over how bad her skin looks in that photo. Holy hell, she needs to stop tanning or whatever it is she’s doing to ruin her skin.

And I totally believe she’s going through the kids’ money like water.

This Gosselin woman is a nut case through and through. She always speaks out of both sides of her mouth, lies, and contradicts herself continually.

The sign of having a significant mental illness is when you do not realize you have deficits. Kate Gosselin thinks she is perfect and has been exploited and misunderstood. What a nut. She should have spent money on therapy and she may be perceived as a decent person today instead of the screwed up woman she is.

Well she sure spent a lot of $$$ making herself look good, have you seen the before photos? Ugh, ugh. But, she is still an ugly and exploitative person on the inside. Selfish, selfish, selfish.

Kate Gosselin is an idiot. She has made millions off her children and she should have invested wiser on behalf of her kids. But, in usual selfish Kate Gosselin style (it’s all about me), she squandered her kids money.

Afterall, if it wasn’t for her test tube 8, (because she has zero talent and a nasty disposition), she would not have already made as much money as she has.
