"After a few sun-filled days shooting a magazine cover in Mexico, Kate Gosselin returned to reality on Friday, stepping out in Pennsylvania to take her kids to a dentist appointment. Kate traded in her colorful bikini for a business look, pairing a button-down blouse and black skirt with heels.The four kids with her also stepped out in style: the two boys wore matching shorts and polo shirts while the two girls wore matching jean shorts and pink tops and shoes. Kate, who recently talked about her devotion to fitness and staying healthy, kept a water on hand to stay hydrated during the warm afternoon of errands."
Did Kate Gosselin Get Hot All of a Sudden?: TheHollywoodGossip.com
When a magazine plays up some female celebrity's "revenge body," most of the time it's total nonsense. But in the case of Kate Gosselin's new People magazine cover, there might be something to it. She actually looks good. Really good. Like, blow-Jon's-cadre-of-mediocre-girls-out-of-the-water good. At 35, the mother of eight and rumored girlfriend of Steve Neild may be making him one lucky protector. She is now "the most fit I've ever been," she says. How? No plastic surgery for this reality star. She credits near-daily runs outside her Wernersville, Penn., home, and she's not afraid to show off the results.
Kate Gosselin on People: Self Promoter or Average Working Mom?: Babble.com
We all know Kate Gosselin is the Mommy the media loves to hate. Kate appeared on the cover of Life & Style this Spring, with the phrase “OUT OF CONTROL MONSTER!” splayed across her chest. In an article about Kate’s new book, the rag accused her of exploiting her children for cash, which may seem inarguable, given that she’s chosen to raise her kids on-camera. But the piece went on to criticize her for appearing on Dancing With The Stars, which had her flying “3,000 miles from their Pennsylvania hometown once a week so she can compete on the show,” adding, “The kids, meanwhile, are left behind – in tears.” Really? How do we know Kate’s kids are left in tears while their Mom is on TV or a book tour or off getting botox and breast implants in Mexico with her bodyguard? When Kate is traveling, her kids are spending time with their Dad, picnicking with his 23-year-old girlfriend. If they’re crying, maybe he should do something about it?
Kate is constantly accused of exploiting her children and being a self-promoter, and while I’m not saying there isn’t truth to both of those statements, I have trouble understanding how Kate is the “bad guy” when she’s the parent hustling to feed her family after her husband cheated on her. No doubt she’s said some inappropriate things out of anger towards him, but why is it that Jon’s cheating scandal seems to have completely disappeared from the annals of pop-culture memory? More importantly, why is it that Jon has been referred to by the media as a babysitter to his own children? It seems to me that the villification of Kate Gosselin is an indirect attack on working mothers everywhere.
