Kate Gosselin swears her shows are not canceled

US Weekly has quotes from Kate Gosselin’s rep, who refutes the latest rumor that Kate’s Twist of Kate show, in which she reportedly travels around the country helping women who write in, has not been canceled. We first heard about this show back in April when Kate was showing us firsthand what an entitled bitch she is on Dancing With the Stars. So far nothing has come of it, but her rep swears it hasn’t been canceled. I have to admit that this report confuses me, because it’s written as if the show has already aired. There’s nothing on TLC’s website about it, and I haven’t heard a peep about the show so I can only assume that it’s still in the works.

Kate Gosselin fans everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief.

Her new TLC show, Twist of Kate, is not canceled, a rep confirms to UsMagazine.com.

Twist of Kate follows the single reality TV mom, 35, as she visits and helps families facing obstacles.

As it turns out, the flurry of rumors about the show getting the axe due to poor ratings are “100 percent not true,” the rep tells Us.

Gosselin also stars in TLC’s Kate Plus 8, which follows her family life without ex-husband Jon Gosselin.

I wanted to report this story because I had the chance to read the first chapter of Kate’s I Just Want You To Know book, which was a complete failure by most accounts. I got a sample through my Kindle app (it came up through another search and I was not looking for it, I swear!) and in the first chapter, she very snottily reports a story of a woman recognizing her and her family and weaves it into a “poor me” account of how people harass her now that she’s famous. According to Kate, she years to be “normal” and she writes without any irony at all that she doesn’t want people watching her and her kids! Plus, it’s more about her than any concern for her kids’ safety. Here’s a more egregious excerpt:

The persistent fans were often more concerned about what they were getting out of me than having respect for my situation. That’s probably where my perceived bad attitude toward the public started. Depending on the location, I tried to be cordial and kind, but I probably didn’t always respond very well. Frankly, it botehred me that people wouldn’t leave us alone. Sometimes they even wanted to touch the kids. I got very good about quickly stepping in between them before they could.

These type of encounters caused Jon and me to long for what we called a “normal” family life. For us, normal meant being able to travel outside of the house with just the ten of us – no chaperones. Normal meant my kids could get out and play freely, instead of being restrained in their strollers because we could keep sixteen chubby little legs from running in eight different directions. In my fantasies about “normal,” I craved a quiet life where my family and I could go out in public without people staring, pointing and counting my kids. It was hard enough trying to be a mom of twins and sextuplets without feeling like the world was watching everything I did.

[From I Just Want You To Know, print edition, by Kate Gosselin]

It’s all about Kate and how hard life is for a celebrity. She wants a “normal” non-public life despite all she’s done to prove otherwise. She just years to go out with her kids alone even though she has multiple nannies and a bodyguard when there are A-list celebrities that have less help than she does. She better enjoy it now before she’s completely eclipsed by that polygamist family and the newest crop of cute multiples.

    go sell your crazy to someone who cares, this woman exploited her family on TV but doesn’t want the “celebrity” to go along with it???
    BULL…isn’t your 15 minutes WWWAAAYYY past its time???

  2. dorothy says:

    Well, I guess we’ll have to cancel the party. I was sure we were finally rid of this star wanna-be. Oh well…I can still hope.

  3. bellaluna says:

    If I was “famous,” I’d be the Sean Penn kind of famous; I’d beat up paps to keep them out my face until they respected my privacy.

    Reality “stars” don’t have that luxury, because if they hadn’t pimped themselves out in the first place, they wouldn’t be “stars.”

  4. Maritza says:

    People have gotten tired of her and her narcissistic behavior. The Sister Wives” and “19 and counting” shows have stolen her thunder and now with “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”,I’d say her days are numbered on TLC. She is not a nice person and people sense that.

  5. Jazz says:

    If you want a normal life Kate, then stop pimping your kids out on TV!!

  6. Happymom says:

    “Helps families facing obstacles”?! Yes, because everything about Kate says altruism and being kind.

  7. Obvious says:

    I fully support any move by any network to get her off the air. I fully support all publishers to stop publishing her books. and i fully support the right of the WORLD to hate Kate Gosselin. =)

  8. la_chica says:

    she is a nasty creature

  9. Stronzilla says:

    Twisted Kate follows the story of a delusional famewhore with a sense of self-entitlement and who is clueless
    as to what it takes to be a mother as she arrogantly bitches, moans and whines her way across America barging in and imposing herself on poor families who are otherwsie occupied facing actual ‘real life’ obstacles in her never-ending quest to try and make us believe she is of any relevance.

  10. Scarlet Vixen says:

    I keep forgetting this creature is only a few yeas older than me (I’m 31). She looks like a hard 40+. I guess that’s what constant tanning, chemical peels, bad hair, and whoring out of children can do to one’s complexion…

  11. Roxanne75 says:

    self absorbed….the show has made her a different person and one day she will wake up and realize it..hopefully it won’t be too late.

  12. original kate says:

    that photograph of her blowing kisses is really disturbing.

  13. aenflex says:

    Let this bitch come to my house and try to tell me how to live my life better. I would entertain the fantasy of putting HER in the rose garden.

  14. Jenna says:

    i can’t stand this woman.

  15. lucy2 says:

    I know, Scarlet, I always thought she was 40-45!

    I’m glad her ratings are tanking and people are moving on from watching her shows. The best thing for those kids would be for their family to slide back into anonymity, but sadly I think she’ll fit that tooth and nail.

  16. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    “I craved a quiet life where me and my family could go out into public and people…. blah blah”

    That was before they handed you the first payroll check.

    Now you will whore the whole family out for money.

    STFU liar.

  17. Baby says:

    Seriously..Kate to help someone else but herself.. hahahahahahah

    “In my fantasies about “normal,” I craved a quiet life where my family and I could go out in public without people staring, pointing and counting my kids. It was hard enough trying to be a mom of twins and sextuplets without feeling like the world was watching everything I did.”

    This woman is a psycho or personality disorder at best.

    I agree with the other poster that one day she’ll wake up and realize she ruined her own life. This of course won’t be for years from now.

    If there is any karma or justice in this world both her shows will be canceled.

  19. Whamo says:

    You have to be all sorts bitchy when you’re rather pretty ( she’s not exactly ugly anyway) and the entire world hates your guts. I’ll be sure not to watch anything this crazy ass bitch is in that’s for sure.

  20. Kiska says:

    The sooner she is off the tv the better. If we all band together and not support this chick the better. She can go back to nursing. (shudder at the thought of her caregiving)

  21. dj says:

    I remember when this show was first out and my husband and I watched it (because the kids were adorable). Then we stopped because she seemed to be escalating in her screeching (behavior) constantly. My point is the kids were so happy and cute in the beginning. Yesterday I saw a picture of them all with Kate and they ALL looked so unhappy. Therapy for life: reservation for 8.

  22. MrsKrabapple says:

    She’s a liar like Sarah Palin – on one hand, criticizing the media attention on her family, and with the other hand, singing that lucrative reality show contract to pimp out her family. They both disgust me.

  23. glo says:

    Item: Stardom
    Shark smile. Weary eyes. Why choose to make life difficult?

    The show’s premise — with her in it– sounds like the story of the one eyed king in the land of the blind.

  24. OXA says:

    There is no cure for Narcissitcic Personality Disorder, she is never going to wake up and see the damae in her wake. It is always someone elses fault, the kids getting expelled was an embarrassment to her.

  25. anon says:

    Kate is looney bins!!Can’t stand her voice, fake smile, fake body, fake nails, fake hair……fake, fake,fake and to top it off she is nasty, mean and a liar!

  26. Jaxx says:

    why can’t people see that this woman has eight children with a manchild and is doing everything she can to take care of her children as well as she can without waiting for the public to hand her a government check ala Octo. I think she works extra hard putting herself out there because I’m pretty sure she didn’t think she would be doing all this alone while her husband goes off to get a one bedroom apartment in New York and relive his lost youth. I don’t think she’s perfect but as a mother I would do as much as I can to take care of my children as best as I could also and a simple nursing job is not going to do it for eight kids.

  27. TG says:

    @dorothy – Too funny and can we add spencer and heidi to that party list? I refuse on principal to even click on stories re those two and that stupid tlc show about the polygamous family.

  28. Kiska says:

    @ Jaxx

    My only response is: Don’t frickin’ have 8 kids if you can’t support them by being a nurse.

  29. kwink says:

    Why are her boobs each pointing towards their respective walls in the top picture?!

  30. Bitter fruit says:

    Damn I keep thinking she’s 45 too.

  31. anon says:

    @Jaxx: You can always tell when a woman has been burned by a man. Are you for real??? Kate is the most selfish, self-absorbed, impatient mother I have ever seen. Bullcrap she works hard. I guess you have never seen a real mother work hard if that your idea of hardworking. She is a lazy sloth who only knows how to spend money on herself. The kids work for her while she bosses them around. @Kiska: great comment! Why do people have kids if they can’t afford them?????

  32. Nikki Latte says:

    What are her BOOBS doing in the first pic??
    Oh, My Eyes!,

  33. Chris says:

    She’s not admitting it, but, she looks as if she has had multiple plastic surgery operations.

  34. Nj says:

    Even without a reality show, her kids were going to be stared at, and people were going to ask questions. Six babies at once is an anomaly and people are going to be curious. If she couldn’t see that coming then she is rather stupid.

  35. jamie says:

    when does this hag have any time for her kids if shes doing 2 shows? Her 5 minutes is up “GO AWAYYYYYYYYY”

  36. CB says:

    In order for a show like that to work, don’t people have to like you? (applies to either show, really)

  37. maxie says:

    @ jaxx: It’s the way she’s behaved that have sickened many & turned her people against her. Everytime she has people come to her house to get her basement organized, her house pressure washed, etc. she’s been soooo bitchy to them–like they’re beneath her. Really? She’s only famous because of those kids, she’s nothing special. She has really put herself on a pedestal. I don’t know where she gets that she’s entitled to so much just because she bore so many kids @ once. I feel her time is limited in the spotlight as she has no real entertainment skills & she’s having a harder & harder time keeping her bitchy attitude out of the show. **And yeah, I can’t believe her boobs are pointing in two different directions in the 1st photo!??

  38. Sarah says:

    “what an entitled bitch she is on Dancing With the Stars” made me lol because it’s so damn true
