InÂ Monday night’sÂ 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!
â€œIâ€™ve done enough years on TV that I feel like itâ€™s a normal, comfortable, natural place to be,” Kate Gosselin said onÂ the ‘question and answer’ episode ofÂ Jon & Kate Plus 8. “Iâ€™d love to be in a movie at some point, Iâ€™d love to be the voice of a cartoon character in a movie for my kids. I think that would be fun.â€
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.
