Well, if yesterday’s post about Kate Gosselin’s fears for her brood’s future got you all up in arms, it appears the worries may have been premature.
Kate had tearfully told press that she was terrified that her family would be thrust into poverty following the cancellation of her show Kate Plus 8, and indicated that a return to her former career was not feasible to support her massive collection of children- further insinuating that she cares for the clan of eight largely without help. She said:
“I’ve never quit a job in my life without having something else lined up. I don’t know what’s next… The scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn’t let me continue to provide well for eight kids essentially on my own. When you think about it that way, it gets really scary.”
Whoa, gossip fans! Maybe we were too mean to Kate! She’s a single mom of eight and now she’s unemployed! She must have it super rough… except, she just bought an Audi TT. Which is fine, everyone should have nice things if they can afford them… but Kate just told everyone she doesn’t know if she’ll be able to take care of her family well without a replacement gig. So far, the reality TV star has not indicated that she has any prospects for future work.
Even more interesting is the fact that Gosselin chose a two-seater Audi as her new, post Kate Plus 8 ride. The car can’t fit two kids, much less eight of them. If Gosselin anticipated a coming period of uncertainty, certainly child care costs are going to be a concern in the not-too-distant future- costs she’ll almost certainly incur any time she wants to take the TT for a spin.
Then again, maybe Kate’s not being irresponsible or lying to press about the severity of her situation- perhaps she has another deal lined up. Do you think Kate Gosselin and her clan of kids will be returning to the small screen in the near future?
