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 hate this creature! I don’t knock Jon bc I think he is nothing like her. You don’t ever see him begging to get on tv to cry or complain. He went away and I would think he probably spends real time with his kids. Anyway…Kate thought she was an A list celebrity and was treating people like dirt and now she is nothing more than a host on the Love Boat! Ha !!!

Kate Gosselin is a disgusting woman that exploits her own children for money, she is a control freak and i think she should go and get a REAL job and let her children have normal lives.

Seriously, she has a few real jobs. Its the paparozzi that follow her to bed,bath, and beyond stores, target, fed ex, or kids dentist. they need a story like HollyBaby. Its all over the mighty dollar, the exact principal they knock down kate for.

This is her mo.. she does it every time she wants more press. She went on the Today show and said she couldn’t pay bills put a month after she went and got boobs. She is a pathological liar. She needs to shut the he ll up and get a real job. Your so strapped for cash but you still tan, drive an audi color your hair get your manicures and botox your mug. She is a HORRIBLE individual.

Yet, Kate is having financial woes, like Santa is the Easter bunny. Kate let everyone know last night on twitter, she owns a 3D TV, add to the 3 cars she owns, $1.5 million house, $300 shoes, her trips to NYC for hair, tanning sessions, organic food, chasing all day looking for frogs for leap day, etc. Geez, sound to me she has money. Kate even blashed people the last couple of days on twitter, that she is not broke, and what she does with her money is no ones business. Which under normal, is true, but then Kate people don’t go to People magazine, go on Talk Shows, do a radio show and grift off people, telling them how expensive it is to have: 8 count them 8 kids to feed, and then cry poor. And now Kate even said on twitter that everybody is jealous of her, cause she has all this stuff and we don’t. Jealous of what? Kate also said she has a poor memory, in that radio interview she said, it was the kids, who wanted to leave Palin in Alaska, not Kate who threw a hissy fit. Kate go and crawl back under your rock.

Perhaps its time she lived more within her means and stopped trying to get a gig and got a job. And it might help if she took the kids out of private school and put them in public school.

Kate can’t afford to take her kids to the movies, is doing movie night in, but she can afford dinners and Essex House Hotel stays in NYC quite often for her and Steve.

Kate strapped for money?!! NOT!
What a crock, she is just doing this for more free publicity. She is an attention seeker and can’t stand that she’s not in the limelight any more.

Who Cares about this woman…She Blew all the money on crap for self and her loser husband is just as bad.
The show was great in the beginning until they got a real taste of the cash,Then it was all obout them and what they can get for themselves…Not the Kids but for herself and Jon…They Both Suck and deserve to go back to the real world and make a living like the rest of us.
Kate and Jon are not STARS they are just two people that took advantage of people that loved watching the kids and they used the kids to make millions and forgot what is most important…FAMILY and YOUR KIDS!!

Harper/Collins Author here, 3 HC (One is 45 x reprinted). and 9 books total. 5 times State judge for Ms. South Dakota USA. I know what beauty is. Former combat F-4 pilot and have a JD as well. Kate is the best looking woman in Hollywood. She has Betty Grable legs, not those bird stems the rest have. She needs to do a Pin up and get it overseas to the troops. She has it all. So what if she has 8 kids.

Kate has so many people that hate her for good reason and it is not out of jealousy that the haters post about her bad behaviors. There is absolutely nothing to be jealous of.

You don’t see the same type of hate comments regarding high profile and dignified celebrities. Kate is trash.

Ha, ha, ha, lol, lol. The only person that would say people are jealous of anyone are immature and childish.

Please, if this is an adult posting, get a new MO. If this is the only response to true comments made about this abnormal mother of 8 test tube babies, keep trying. It shows how bad Kate Gosselin is in need of therapy. Jealousy, I think not!

Lloyd… instead of saying that there is a bunch of jealous people, say something positive and good about this woman. Saying that she is great!!! Great in WHAT!! Why she is not on TV now?? Why she couldn’t get her own show?? If she is that great, she will have her own talk show right now

She made MILLIONS in the last 8 years and she limits her kids to ONE christmas gift? Maybe should cut down on her OWN luxury items and take care of the kids. She’s pathetic! I hope she rots! No one can stand her! She got what she deserved.. ALONE AND LONELY and she never cared about those kids,,, she’s a fameHO that NO ONE wants to see anymore!

Actually according to Kate she overdoes Xmas – she had a “closet full of gifts, so full she was tripping over them” panicking just days b4 Christmas trying to wrap them all. But the picture of her pathetic xmas trees shows very modest amount of presents after the unwrapping. More of her lies, trying to outdo every one else, including Jon
