We recently saw photos of Kate Gosselin taking her kids out to a corn maze on Halloween – and making them leave half way through. I hate those hedge and corn mazes, mainly the ones you can’t see out of, and get panicked that I won’t be able to find my way out. That wasn’t the case with Kate, though, she was wearing spike heels and bitching loudly that everyone was moving too fast for her. Then once the TLC crew was done filming in the maze she made the kids leave without doing any of the other activities at the pumpkin patch, like marshmallow roasting or face painting.
US Weekly has more on how Kate’s unbridled narcissism “ruined” Halloween. They claim that she took her kids trick or treating, and then proceeded to sleep in the car while her “bodyguard”/lover drove. She snapped at them to keep quiet so mommy could get her beauty rest. She made her eight kids keep quiet on Halloween!
What scared the eight Gosselin kids most this Halloween? Their own mom! On October 31, Kate Gosselin, 35, and bodyguard Steve Neild took her brood trick or treating – but “Steve drove the van while Kate slept in the front seat,” and insider tells Hot Stuff [US Weekly]. “The kids were told to be quiet so they wouldn’t wake her!” The source adds that the kids are “sad all the time” and one of the sextuplets “was suspended from school for two weeks for hitting another child.” (An insider says Gosselin yelled at the girl, “You’re embarrassing me!”) And the TLC star – whose Kate Plus Eight viewership has plunged almost 50 percent since June – doesn’t reserve her anger for her kids along. The first source says she’s hounding ex Jon Gosselin, 33, for child support: “Kate told Jon she’ll sue until he signs over full custody. She wants him out of her life for good.”
Inset text: Gosselin has hired a live-in nanny, “spending even less time with her kids,” says a source.

I can’t blame Kate for telling Jon to pay child support or sign over custody. It’s not like he’s gainfully employed and earning even a fraction of what she makes, though. He’s eating at Taco Bell with his girlfriend and then complaining when he gets recognized. (No aspersions on Taco Bell here, it’s my favorite fast food.)
Kate’s show is being tromped in the ratings by polygamists and she’s about to lose her main source of income. It’s a shame she’s such a piece of work, or maybe the public would have some good will left for whatever future endeavors she gets into. As it is, we’ve seen how she treats her kids and how nasty she was on Dancing with The Stars. No one buys her “working mom” act anymore.
