Kate Gosselin Wants to be a Movie Star

In Monday night’s episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin shared her dreams of becoming a TV and movie star. Because, apparently, she’s just so super good at it!

“I’ve done enough years on TV that I feel like it’s a normal, comfortable, natural place to be,” Kate Gosselin said on the ‘question and answer’ episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8. “I’d love to be in a movie at some point, I’d love to be the voice of a cartoon character in a movie for my kids. I think that would be fun.”

Fun for her, we’re sure. After all, without that Hollywood paycheck, how is she going to afford her full-time nanny? Her part-time nanny? Her house cleaner? Her landscapers? Her shoe habit and hair stylist? Fame and fortune is like crack, once you smoke it, you just can’t ever go back – even if it ruins your life, kills your marriage and corrupts your children.

The sad thing is, someone out there will probably give her what she wants – for a while. As long as Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin remain a tabloid headline, there will be sleazeballs willing to cash in on the free publicity. Kate Gosselin has already taped a pilot for one talk show already. TLC is still hoping to get Kate Plus 8 off the ground, despite Jon Gosselin’s injunction against any further taping of his children. Kate Gosselin has got her mouth on the fame bit and she’s not likely to let go anytime soon.

The saddest thing is that Kate Gosselin doesn’t seem to realize the only real reason why anyone wants her at this point is to exploit her and her family drama – not because she’s all that interesting herself. Hollywood will probably be happy to use and abuse her until the public loses interest – and then they’ll dump her off into obscurity again without a second thought.

Jon Gosselin Shocked by Kate Ditching Court Hearing

Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin was reportedly “shocked” when estranged wife Kate Gosselin decided to ditch a court hearing Monday morning to attend a book signing. The Gosselins were due in court to settle a dispute over $230,000 Jon Gosselin allegedly took from a joint bank account without permission.


Jon Gosselin declared in court Monday he had returned $180,000 he had withdrawn from the former couple’s bank account to comply with a previous order from the judge in the ongoing financial dispute. Kate Gosselin, who was also scheduled to appear, was MIA – attending a women’s conference and book signing in California.

Blasting Kate Gosselin for not showing up, Jon Gosselin said his estranged wife has still not accounted for $33,000 she took from the joint account. Kate’s attorney, Cheryl Young, said the arbitrator in the couple’s divorce had not asked for her client to explain her usage of the funds and said she is “fully compliant.”

Jon wasn’t the only one pissed off by Kate’s blow-off, his laywer went on a full-out tirade about the woman he calls “the old lady who lived in the shoe.”


The Gosselins are due back in court in November for another divorce arbitration session. The final episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 airs Monday night.
