Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Kate Gosselin allegedly posted a message on her Facebook account this week bemoaning the probable cancellation of the TLC reality show due to failing ratings. Problem is, the Facebook message heard round the Net might not be from Kate Gosselin at all.


As reported by tabloid sites across the web, Kate Gosselin reportedly posted on her Facebook page: “With ratings falling, this might be the last season of Jon & Kate Plus 8. I’m not sure yet.” However, further research has revealed the Kate Gosselin Facebook page may be a fake. According to Radar Online, an unnamed friend of Gosselin says the reality TV star doesn’t even have a Facebook page.

Actually, there are at least a full dozen Facebook accounts claiming to be Kate Gosselin. Obviously it isn’t hard to make a Facebook page claiming to be any celebrity. While Kate Gosselin does have a “fan” page on Facebook that she appears to occassionally post too, none of the other Facebook accounts under her name are verified as belonging to her.

Granted, the ratings for Jon & Kate Plus 8 have indeed taken a nosedive since the divorce drama between Jon and Kate Gosselin went public. Plus, Kate Gosselin is already reportedly working on a new talk show targeted to moms. On the other hand, Kate Gosselin is quite aware TLC is currently her sugar-daddy and we think it’s pretty unlikely she’d say anything potentially negative about Jon & Kate Plus 8 – especially in such an informal way as a Facebook post.

So we’re calling this rumor as a fake until and unless Kate Gosselin fesses up to making the statement.
