Kate Gosselin in a bikini on the cover of People: “The Truth about My New Body”

Not since People featured Heidi Montag and her 10 surgical procedures have they stooped so low. (Well maybe when they featured Kate Gosselin’s new hair.) This week most of us will try to look away when confronted with Kate Gosselin’s smug mug and plastic surgery and Photoshop-enhanced body on the cover of People. Kate must have been jealous when she had to share the cover with Melissa Joan Hart’s bikini body last year, and at long last she has her own cover featuring her bolt-on boobs, cheap-looking weave and big veneers. In the teaser article on People’s website, Kate denies nailing her kiwi bodyguard, but it’s obvious she is, and they promise she’ll address the rumors of botox and boob jobs. You know she’s going to deny all that too despite her painful-looking wonk eye and those melon tits. Compare these recent bikini pictures of Kate to that cover.

She flaunted her body after (eight!) babies on the last season of Dancing with the Stars. But it turns out Kate Gosselin was just getting warmed up.

At 35, the reality TV mom says she is now “the most fit I’ve ever been.” How? She credits near-daily runs outside her Wernersville, Penn., home – and she’s not afraid to show off the results.

“I’ve worked really hard!” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Haven’t I earned the right, at this point, to look good?”

While the single mom shoots down incessant tabloid reports linking her to her bodyguard – “It’s just absurd,” Gosselin says – she does hope her new body will turn some heads. “I’m waiting for Mr. Right. It would be nice if somebody noticed me, sure!”

For much more with Kate – including exclusive photos and answers on those plastic surgery and Botox rumors – pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

[From People]

She probably started exercising so much when she realized that it was yet another activity that allowed her to spend extended time away from her kids along with tanning, having her weave re-done and getting mani-pedis. Is Kate a decent seller for People? I guess she must be since this is the fourth People cover she’s scored this year. People love to hate her, and for good reason. My thoughts when I read Kate’s comment “Haven’t I earned the right, at this point, to look good?” were “no” and “you don’t look good either.” You can’t diet away ugly. I must be a jealous h8ter.

Isn’t she lovely?

    At the risk of being investigated by the F.B.I., I’m just going to go ahead and say it- Someone needs to bomb People Magazine.

  2. Angie says:

    This is the reason why I cancelled my subscription to People magazine and TLC is blocked on our television. I HATE, LOATHE and DETEST everything about this fraud.

  3. Riley says:

    Way before all the Kate and Jon drama, I watched the show a couple of times, not all the way through but enough to know what an insane bitch Kate is and what a pussy Jon is. Well, I also watched enough to remember they showed pictures of Kate before she had the oldest daughters, or maybe it was right after she had the oldest daughters. Point is, she didn’t look the People cover. Not anything like the People cover. Deny all you want, Honey, but you have had a major overhaul. And what pisses me off about it is is that at one point in her life she wanted tax payer dollars to pay for her spawn. So, I guess we take care of her children while she uses her money to overhaul her body and bang her “bodyguard” in Cabo. Please sign me up for that deal… bitch, turd. An aside, I wonder if she and the bodyguard do it to Whitney Houston’s version of, “AAAAAnnnnndddd IIIIIIIIIIIIIIII will always lllllloovvveeeee YYYYYEEEEWWWWWWW.”

  4. Me says:

    I’m with you Angie. I NEVER read People anymore because they pander to these uninteresting reality people. Heidi, Kate, Teresa really? WHy do they make a cover EVER?

  5. Lisa says:

    Some things she does disturbs me but I don’t have much reason to not like her. People may as well face the fact Kate isn’t going anywhere if she was shed already be gone along with that crazy ex husband Jon

  6. Marge says:

    Not this hag again..What is it going to take to get rid of her??

  7. lola lola says:

    Desperate. Just desperate.

  8. spooge says:

    She should have spent that time working on her personality instead.

  9. LindaR says:

    Ugh. I am so tired of seeing her face everywhere. No one defends her on this site so who the hell is it then that is interested enough in her and what she does that she warrants this much attention? I don’t know anyone that does.

  10. original kate says:

    her smile is absolutely terrifying.

  11. Kelly says:

    That last close-up pic of her face – OMG!!!! What in holy Hell is going on there? The shininess – how could any self-respecting makeup artist spend so much freakin’ time on false eyelashes but not invest two seconds in a swipe of mattifying primer?

    And conversely, how could anyone who knows s/he is going to be in front of a million cameras go out looking like an explosion in the Bain de Soleil factory? (Is anyone out there even old enough to remember Bain de Soleil? The orange goo of death? I attribute most of my sun damage to that stuff – but boy did it smell good! And, it’s the San Tropez tan!)

  12. ann says:

    vomit. She looks like kathi lee Gifford in the last picture. I have no respect for this woman any more.

  13. original kate says:

    “The orange goo of death?”

    LMAO! my older sister and her friends used to use it, along with nair and love’s baby soft.

  14. Just a Poster says:

    Is anyone else old enough to remember when People used to be a good magazine?

  15. teri says:

    Well here’s my two cents…….
    She looks good! She deserves to be happy and she also deserves to feel good about herself. She’s bringing in the money for her children, yes she’s getting paid by appearing on shows. It feeds her children and puts a roof, clothes and whatever else they need. Her children attend school, maybe that’s when she works out? No reason why it’s a crime to want to feel good about yourself. If watching her shows is contributing to feeding her children and supporting her as one stated, you feel you have the right to critisize her because you help support her? She’s young and single and she’s not dead.

  16. Whatever says:

    I saw the show a few times and it made me feel like a shitty mom. I mean, how could she keep that house so CLEAN with 8 kids, when I can’t manage it with half that many? Of course, then I found out about the nannies, organic chef, housekeepers et al. No freaking wonder. This is the same thing. I could look like that with a tummy tuck, boob job and some botox too. Blech.

  17. vicky says:

    What a bunch of mean, nasty, haters you all are. Do you look good enough to be on the cover of a magazine? Probably not. If I had 8 kids I would do everything I could to make $.
    Kate – you look amazing!!

  18. Lisa S. says:

    Just wait, one of those kids gonna write their own tell all book “Mom was a fake, Dad was gay..” Wait and see.

  19. spanks says:

    LOL They totally photo-shopped her butt, legs and abs in that pic. Its so obvious.
    My gawd how I’d love to smack that smirk off her plastic face.
    Please make her go away!!!

  20. bizzy says:

    turns out her hed is pasted on yaye and the nineteen year old body model gets a reality show deal in 3 … 2 … 1 …

  21. kellsbells says:

    People Mag officially “jumped the shark” when they put Kate on the cover with her cheap looking & incredibly expensive weave last year. Her most recent stint as People mag’s coverbitch only solidifies their shark jumping status!

  22. anon33 says:


    OMG LMAO at “bitch, turd”

  23. hmm says:

    She is such a train wreck. And People magazine is now officially a joke.

  24. Amanda says:

    When did People magazine become a paid celebrity PR mechanism? It is complete BS that Kate G is on the cover with this story. This is non-news, first of all. Second of all, obviously either she or TLC has a deal worked out with People to continually put stories (non-stories) about her on their cover or in their magazine. They never run anything controversial or “investigative” on her- not even anything fair or balanced. Not that People magazine is an investigative news magazine, but they often run human interest stories where they present serious facts.

    I haven’t read the article, but if People magazine publishes that Kate Gosselin did NOT get breast implants then that magazine is utterly worthless. What is the point of journalism if you just take whatever lies your interviewee gives you and publish them? It’s not journalism, its celebrity public relations. Therefore, People magazine becomes one big advertisement for the celebrity and whatever show or movie or tv network the celebrity is representing. Well, there ya go. I guess that’s just about it right there.

  25. teri says:

    Is John even helping her financially? Enough to keep her home with her children since you are so judgemental and all?

  26. missmilly says:

    Why is she so into showing everyone her body? So self indulgent..I mean really it’s like showing off….and that trait is gross. really?

  27. sara says:

    SHE’S ONLY 35????
    I thought she was in her mid-40s!

  28. OXA says:

    I think that now Kate has had more procedures than Joan Rivers.
    Oh and she is not a single mother, she has nannies plus a fully staffed house and shares custody with the kids father..

  29. anon says:

    She is so desperate for attention, its sickening! I hope my daughter never ends up being a mother like her. Don’t waste your money on People magazine. Instead put the extra cash into a bank account for your kids or buy a book or do a yoga class. Anything for self-improvement!

  30. Menace says:

    Has anyone ever pointed out that she looks like Medusa from the Disney movie The Rescuers?

  31. Dorothy says:

    This is why I too canceled my People subscription. Kate Gosselin has been on that cover 3 times in the last 6 months. Is she the primary shareholder for that company now? When will that womans 15 mins. be up? Go away.

  32. la chica says:

    people is just being realistic about the new celebrity. gone are the days of real movie stars. today it’s The Shituation, Snooki, and this gross woman with 8 kids.

    she must have an excellent publicist. next up, rumors of her sleeping with John Mayer. lol

  33. PEACEOUT says:


  34. chris says:

    Sorry, but I work out like a fiend and have twins and do not look like that. Ain’t no way that heifer did that without a little help from her plastic surgeon.

  35. gillie says:

    i am pleading. PLEASE stop posting about this person. I like schadenfreud just as much as the next person, but shes not famous for anything other than being a mean wench with more kids than necessary

  36. yoplait says:

    From my perspective, the criticism people have about her and other celebrities is not about what they do but about how they deny and lie about it.

    If Gosselin would simply have come out and said, yes, I have had plastic surgery and so what? That’s the reality of show business. Many people would have respected her for her candidness. Instead she plays the plausible deniability game.

  37. Captaine says:

    The bitch is shaped like a rectangle. Nothin even remotely attractive about this famewhore.

  38. GatsbyGal says:

    She always looks like she’s faking it.

  39. Scarlet Vixen says:

    I can’t believe she’s trying to claim she hasn’t had plastic surgery. Years ago she and TLC were both very open about the fact that a plastic surgeon gave her a free tummy tuck and I think a boob lift/job at the urging of his wife (they were the parents of Job’s eventual girlfriend Hayley Glassman). But this b*tch is so f’in delusional she’ll probably try to deny it, anyway.

  40. gooniegirl says:

    I must admit…I don’t understand all the hatin’ on her. It’s not like she’s the only mom in the world who has fake nails, tan, and hair. And everyone wants to stab her for getting plastic surgery on her belly but I would bet money that, if given the opportunity, every woman who’s had their belly stretched to accomodate 6 kids in her womb would jump at the chance to have it tightened back up too.

    Everyone wants to be a judge.

  41. Bea says:

    Kate is like an emotionally stunted six year old raising six and nine year olds. Her narcissism is getting worse and she will destroy these children. It is sad that TLC uses her narcissism to bilk more money and exploit the Gosselin 8 for ratings. The kids always look happier when they are with their father, that is why she trashed him on Regis and Kelly, shame on any program that allows a parent to trash another parent. Children come first! To hell with TLC and Kate’s damage control, stop watching– the ratings are slipping.

  42. Anastasia says:

    1. She doesn’t work to support the kids, it’s the other way around. If they didn’t exist, we wouldn’t even know about her. Without them, there’d be no show. They earn their own damn child support. She says she’s working and they’re playing? BS. They’re all working, then.

    2. She’s made enough to stop all this BS and stay home with them indefinitely AND still be set for life.

    3. She is NOT a single mom. She receives child support and co-parents with their father. THAT is not a single parent and it’s insulting to real single parents that she calls herself that.

    4. I totally agree with whoever said it’s too bad she didn’t spend that time working on her awful personality. She’s got the personality of a nest of moray eels.

    She’s not talented or likeable or interesting in the least. Let’s let her go away for good, people.

  43. Marjalane says:

    Next time there’s a post about Kate and her miracle body, can we have a picture of the pre-TLC Kate? You know back when she was incredibly unfortunate looking with her dark brown hair, thunder thighs, and unibrow; That would help me to appreciate this “new and improved” one. I wonder if her body guard would have slept with the old Kate!

  44. Feebee says:

    Who the hell asked her about her Bikini Body that she felt the need to share “the truth” about it. Take that person out and shoot them

    Her arse and hamstring have been photoshopped as obviously as if they’d erased an eye.

    To the poster who mentioned her appearance pre-kids (or 6 of them anyway)… you’re so right. No one can have that much of an extreme makeover without a shit load of help… that’s without being responsible for 8 kids. Oh to have her “stressful” life.

  45. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Bea: I’m with you on that one!! Well said.

  46. Lauren says:

    This isn’t Kate Gosselin.
    It’s a photoshopped image of Kate.

  47. ac emme says:

    To all you people who praise Kate for making money to raise her kids, it’s the other way around. The kids are making money to take care of Kate. If Kate didn’t have those kids, what would she be doing? She was a lower middle-class, no-talent know-nothing living a nondescript life before she incubated 6 babies in that cavernous womb of hers. It’s because of her kids that she can indulge her selfishness and afford a complete fake-over. She does NOT, repeat does NOT earn the money in that family. Without 8 kids, she’d still be emptying bedpans and shrieking at her husband to stop breathing. (It’s too bad somebody can’t airbrush her a pleasant personality.) She hasn’t “earned” anything, not the income or the “right.” Before TLC came along, she thought the state should be paying for her kids… meaning you, her fans. And I bet you’d still pay $20 for a signed picture, and I bet she’d take it without so much as a “thank you.” What a bunch of pathetic suckers you are.

  48. TessaKittysMom says:

    Maybe she ought to take her litter and move to CA and live with OctoMom, they’re both fame whores, plastic thru and thru, and had their kids to make some quick cash.

  49. emmajean864 says:

    lmao this is hilarious…tooo *ucking funny!!! I’m crying! This is surgery all day long! Yes we’re all sick of Kate but seriously folks she’s not going newhere so just sit back and enjoy the ride.

  50. OB RN says:

    She looks ten years older with all of her plastic-hair, nails, teeth, boobs. She can look as perfect as she thinks on the outside but she is vile and ugly on the inside. She looked much more youthful back in 2008-2009 before she got all this crap done. I have had three babies, no cosmetic work and work out occasionally and people think I look like I am in mid-20s, not mid-30s like I am. Take that Kate!

  51. tess says:

    let’s not buy this issue. if circulation is low for the “Kate Kover” then they might think twice before publishing another.

  52. NoPityParty says:

    Wow~With all the Photoshopping they did you’d think they’d put her belly button where it’s supposed to be!

  53. LittleOat says:

    Thank you, Anastasia and emme for pointing out that the kids are the money makers, not her.

    She is a disgusting person, and I hope when her twins turn 18 they sue her ass for all the money all 8 kids earned for her.

  54. mollination says:

    Memba’ when People used to be the respectable tabloid who covered Princess Diana’s death, 9/11, human interest stories, REAL celebrities, and could be taken seriously? My mom used to buy People. Neither of us even go near the gossip rags these days. I will never give my money to people like Kate Gosslen or the cause they promote (ruining society….I’m serious about that, whether it’s dramatic or not).

  55. EMV says:

    her tummy tuck was on the show…some doctor did it pro bono.

  56. Brigit says:

    The comments on this story are really funny and, sadly, most are true. This awful woman needs to fade away quickly.

  57. fizXgirl314 says:

    OMG her belly button is almost on top of her breasts… and her body is just not sexy… she should really stfu… I really hate these “look at how hot and sexy I am” articles. what the hell happened to a bit of humility and humbleness? Jeez…

  58. Sandi says:

    She should look into a personality transplant. She is a shrew and whatever douche Jon maybe, he’s lucky to be away from her. Do you notice that her smile never reaches her eyes. Remind me again why she needs a bodyguard. I don’t believe that she and Steve are fooling around. Could you imagine her new name “homewrecking mother of eight”.

  59. Mary A. says:

    Oh no–not her again! Ok, she looks good after 8 children, but let’s face it–she’s had a tummy tuck, she makes a lot of money and has help with her kids so can afford the time to work out. Almost any woman could look like that with some work and all her advantages! Just make her go away please! There have got to be many more interesting people out there that you could put on your cover.

  60. Anna says:

    The Unholy Trio of Ali, Kate and Michelle Dugger that ended my People subscription.

  61. John says:

    No one is really doubting that she looks good for what she has been through. However, she is a fn liar concerning all the work she has had done. Those are not your real boobs, nor is anything else on your body so quit the game playing! We all know your a fraud and a horrible person!

  62. fluff ass says:

    come on People! we are not stupid and know that “near-daily runs” don’t result in a tumny tuck and silicon implants. People is pitiful.

  63. Hi, i believe that i noticed you visited my web site thus i got here to go back the desire?.I am attempting to find issues to enhance my site!I guess its adequate to make use of some of your concepts!!
