Kate Gosselin has another book coming out

When we saw Kate Gosselin showcasing her sad tiered hair and mommy outfit on a paparazzi-followed night out with her hairdresser in NY City, many of you wondered if she had something to promote. Now we have our answer in the form of a just-announced book from Kate called I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith and Family. I was hoping it would be a tell-all trashing her good for nothing husband, but it’s going to be a feel good book that will probably gloss over the collapse of her marriage and focus on the love she has for the kids she barks orders at. It doesn’t matter what Kate writes, people will buy this. Her other two books on her family were best sellers:

She already wrote two New York Times bestsellers and, soon, Kate Gosselin could have a third on her hands.

The reality star is scheduled to release I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith and Family on April 13 by Zondervan Publishers. The personal book will feature prayers, excerpts from her journal and eight individual letters addressed to each one of her children.

“Each day the thought crosses my mind that when they get older, my kids are going to look back and think about how they were raised,” Gosselin says in a statement. “I know they will have a lot of questions about things that may not make sense because they were raised so unconventionally. I don’t want them to grow up and wonder; I want them to know without a shadow of a doubt how much I love them and how much every sacrifice made was worth it for them.”

In addition to the book, Gosselin is in production on a new television show for TLC. Her previous nonfiction works include Multiple Blessings and Eight Little Faces.

I want to know how much Kate sacrificed exactly as compared to an average mom. I know that large families are no longer considered “average,” but most moms work way harder than Kate at taking care of their kids and have barely any time to themselves. Kate has a pampered, privileged life that many moms of 1-2 kids would love to experience. She has plenty of money and free time, has teams of people working for her, and even has a bodyguard. It must be stressful to be a mom to so many young children and I don’t mean to discount what Kate does, even with all the help she fails to acknowledge at all. How did this woman become the face of mommyhood though? I guess we talked about her enough, and she got enough media exposure. It’s kind of how Heidi Montag became the face of plastic surgery. There are much better examples of each but the ones that stick out for the wrong reasons end up getting publicly acknowledged.

    She just makes me want to tie her down and let her kids kick the evil out of her.

  2. Dorothy says:

    That last paragraph is so very true Celebitchy.

  3. lucy2 says:

    All of that sounds great, the letters to her kids, wanting them to know how much they’re loved…except that it’s all in book form for mass consumption. Those things would be wonderful to do for the kids privately, but this is just another way to use her kids to gain her fame and money. Makes me sad for the kids.

  4. princess pea says:

    I’m with lucy2. This would be a lovely private gift to her kids. Instead it’s a freaking BOOK.

  5. bros says:

    she is repulsive. I love her strained smile in that cover. its like she is trying soooooo hard to look nice and soft and pleasant. no kate, we know how you are. and congrats on looking like brett michaels with your extensions.

  6. Bodhi says:

    Jenny Sanford’s book is out & she TRASHES her soon to be ex-husband. Now that should be an awesome read!

  7. Lem says:

    those poor children. i might say they’d rather have their mom around than writing a book to the future collective ‘them’. But this is Kate, after all, she’s not very nice to them. They probably prefer the nanny.

    now, there’s a sad commentary on the american value system

  8. Erin says:

    she is so full of shit. who buys this crap?

  9. ogechi says:

    Not interested.

  10. texasmom says:

    I think the “sacrifices” made were her family’s privacy and happiness. She is right that someday her kids will want to know just how, exactly, those sacrifices were “worth it.”

  11. sarah says:

    Isn’t her 15 minutes up yet? I’m so tired of hearing about her. How about she take some time and try raising her kids??

  12. DoMaJoReMc says:

    I agree with lucy2. This A-Hole wants her kids to know that she loves them, and the ‘sacrifices’ *cough cough* she made for them. Instead of writing a friggin’ book for all the world to see (manipulating their privcy, yet again), she should PROVE her love by doing things with the children on a more private scale. Hell, she should do things with the children… PERIOD!

    Imagine the classmates of these kids…”I know what your Mommy wrote to you….” Nothing is sacred for KHate, except the almighty dollar she can maneuver out of these children’s lives.

  13. Laurie says:

    Will she ever just…go….away!

  14. bella says:

    For examples of good mothers who sacrifice for their children, how about:

    The moms who work two jobs so they can keep a roof over their heads and food in their bellies and don’t qualify for food stamps or welfare because they work two jobs?

    The moms who work nights while dad works during the day so the children don’t have to go to childcare?

    The moms who don’t get their nails done, don’t get pedicures, and cut their own hair so they have more money to provide for their children?

    There are so many better examples of mothers who TRULY sacrifice for their children.

  15. dee says:

    I lol at the part of her being ‘the face of mommyhood’. I have the misfortune of living in the same area as these famewhores. Its funny how many people do not realize how much help she has. Last i heard she has a staff of 9, one of which has the sole job of being ‘the laundry sorter’. Must be nice to take credit for doing a job that pretty much her staff does for her. I cant wait til the day when I never see any Gosselins on the news.

  16. Jazz says:

    God I loathes this woman.

  17. RReedy says:

    She has nothing to offer in any kind of book. She needs money. Simple as that.

  18. kellsbells says:

    I REALLY think the title of the book should be:
    “I Just Want You To Know, Mommy Is A Total Fame Whore, Media Bitch & Money Loving Sack Of Shit Dust”

  19. Leek says:

    She is so revolting, but thank God she is getting her letters to her children published because who knows how difficult it would be for them to get copies if she hadn’t.

    Her venom is toxic.

  20. kermit says:

    She’s being entrepreneurial and taking advantage of her situation. I wonder how many would do the same in her position. I know some wouldn’t but some might.

  21. Judy says:

    It’s laughable that she just finished a book…she’s been way too busy shopping, getting manicures, pedicures, and hair extensions, and I’ve never seen her in the same pair of shoes twice. It’s so nice when a “ghost writer” writes your books with just a smidgeon of information from you and yet you (Khate) get all the credit. Everything about this woman is fraudulent.

  22. kelbear says:

    Im still going to read it, I can’t help it. Watched J+K+8 since the beginning, and I watched as the family fell apart. I read her other books so I wanna see what she has to say in this one.

    And don’t think she should of cut her extensions up to her shoulders like that especially since the cut is so blunt.

  23. You Smell Nice says:

    I would love to see what demographic out there actually buys this crap and reads it. She’s nothing more than a fame whore.

    In ten years karma will bite her in the ass when the kids figure out they were nothing but a pawn in their commercialization by the Kate and Jon. I hope all eight of them terrorize them for years. That will be fun to watch.

  24. Kat says:

    Amazing, to read the comments here you would think she was the most reviled woman on the planet and you wouldn’t be able to imagine who would buy her book or ever watch her on TV yet she succeeds in both writing and any show she cares to be part of or have filmed about herself. I think that is the strangest part of fame, that most people in the public eye are both loved and hated in equal amounts.

  25. Anastasia says:

    What were her other two books? I know one of them was about having eight kids, but the “Love is in the Mix” cookbook sham is only available for purchase OUTSIDE of the US, which I find hilarious.

    This won’t sell. They couldn’t even sell her stupid cookbook stateside.

  26. Wresa says:

    I love how before it was TEAM KATE or TEAM JON, but now everyone has come to the consensus that they are both ASSH*LES. The next time the comments get heated, remember that we all agree on THIS!!

  27. crash2GO2 says:

    But I don’t just don’t give a crap Kate.

  28. guesty says:

    she’s so fos. honestly, who really buys books like this?

  29. Idiot Kate says:

    She wants her kids, one day when they naturally question her decision to raise them in a fishbowl, to know that THEIR sacrifices were worth it…simply because she says they were. This is grandiosity and a symptom of mental illness.

  30. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @ bella:

    AYYYYYYYYYYYYYYMEN! I know of FAR too many mothers (and fathers…sorry) who worked their fingers to the bone, just so their kids could have the basics. It is so sad that this idiot can cry “Poor Me” and continue to get all the attention (and chances) that she does. Oh, just wait until these kids learn the meaning of “Google”.

  31. Penny says:

    We all know she is obsessed with fame. This book is so far her most shameless means of income. Such personal letters to children about the devastation caused by divorce should be read at home, when the kids are a little older and able to understand. Not put in a best-seller for anyone’s enjoyment. I would have taken a kinder view toward a book about the family’s recovery, with stories about Kate reading to her kids at bedtime or playing with them in the garden or actually getting everyone together for the family prayers she’s always alluding to in her other books. About her appearance: a mom doesn’t have to look and act frumpy. But fortune-priced hairstyles, manicures, and adoring fans are at the top of this witch’s priorities. In a decade or so we’ll doubtless be hearing about tell-all books ‘written’ by one or more of the Gosselin offspring.
