Kate Gosselin Fired While Senate Bill's Inspired

Kate Gosselin was fired from Coupon Cabin today, and the public learned about it through a public statement made by the site's CEO Scott Kluth.   According to Kluth, Kate Gosselin didn't "align with the authenticity" Coupon Cabin set out to build almost a decade ago.  True, cashiers have called her the "Coupon Nightmare" at our local Target store for her over-the top thriftiness as evidenced by handfuls of coupons, but the ability to utilize coupons does not authenticity make.  

In related and happily ironic news, Senator Thomas Murt's child labor Bill 1548 went to the Governor of Pennsylvania today.  The Bill introduces several protections for children working in entertainment in the Commonwealth of PA, including kids working in reality TV.  The Bill, which in the beginning was nicknamed the Gosselin Bill, was designed to mirror child labor laws in California, a state that has always been way ahead of us in the protection of children in the business of entertainment.  It's about time our laws reflected the reality that, despite what Kate has repeatedly said, kids in "reality TV" in Pennsylvania aren't just "playing in front of the cameras."

I have read that Hoffmans blog is back.
Its not going to happen now , but in the furture when the kids are older they will prove that the ones who followed Kate 's every word are the wrong ones. The ones who wanted to expose Kate and show her for what she really is can than say I told you so.
Its only a matter of time when one or more of the 8 will write a book or worse turn their back on Kate because of how she ruined their lives.

Watch out WG your blog might be next ( just kidding of course) how in the world was that allowd to happen? There are TONS of blogs with shit on them far worse than Hoffmans? Not just about Kate but far worse topics! Porn for instance! They are all up and running. There are blogs about everything and anything!

What next Miss Kate radar, or Tmz or whatever site you dont like? I cant stand this woman and wait for the day when she might have to say "sorry" to someone! And not blame others for her own mess!

out getting a drug test today. Nothing on my tablet but the book about Kate. I was considering offering the test people some vomit in addition to my urine.

A Retro happy thanksgiving to all of you.

had a temp job for a week. supposed to be a month but I think all the over timers whipped thru the work. Got another kindle book so that I could read something beside Kate at lunch. Recommend Ken Levine's book called something like The Me Generation By Me - about growing up in 60s and 70s. Nostalgic and funny from a guy who seemed to have a functional family.
Miss you all.

just dropping by cause I notice I haven't been here. Hope Kate is busy with something and not free to torture her kids. I haven't checked twitter lately (and I just follow someone who follows Kate nd fans). Snuggles finished molting, I clipped a few of her flight feathers so she wouldn't fly off - something she never tried till she was three and a half. Pretty sure she doesn't know she is a duck.

If anyone is interested, Jon Gosselin is speaking at Temple University in Philadelphia today on a panel discussing the legal aspects of reality programs.

Hope everyone is doing well and that the new year is off to a good start.

Why is Kate Gosselin on my DVR again? I saw Celebrity Wife Swap and though - Huh? and then I figured it out. They really did it, huh? I was hoping no one would air it. But no. The network that celebrates Robin Roberts (and I'm quite impressed by her, myself) airs this swill? Sigh.

Celebrity Wife Swap was just very sad in that I think Kendra Wilkinson walked away with some good perspective but all Kate got out of the experience was "I need to make more time for me and get away from my kids more." That's not what I think Kendra was trying to get her to see, rather that she needs to give her kids time to just be kids and have fun rather than being on such a regimented schedule 24/7.

Sigh. It has been and always will be about Kate.

On a different note, does anyone know if Kate's sister's adoption from Ethiopia went through? I'm not saying this to be snarky or critical. I never felt this was a grifting scam ala Kate. Crowd funding is a very common practice for evangelical Christians nowadays who are going on missions or adopting overseas and not something I have a problem with personally. Heck we send out emails and use Facebook to sell Girl Scout cookies nowadays. It's one of the good uses of social media imo.

The only issue I had with the adoption per we was she made some statements about how they were struggling financially and I feel strongly that you shouldn't consciously bring children into your family if you can't provide for them. I don't mean provide private school, a mansion, etc. but if you're struggling to pay bills then no. Still, I know adoption can be pretty rigorous in terms of looking at your financials etc. so,they must not have been doing that bad.

Anyway I was just curious how it turned out.
