Kate Gosselin Sued By Marriage Counselor She's "Shocked", Access Hollywood Interview

Kate Gosselin Sued For Not Paying Marriage Counselor:

Reality mom Kate Gosselin is being sued for allegedly not paying more than $10,000 in marriage counseling fees, and can exclusively  show you the complaint.The complaint was filed at Freeland District Court in Pennsylvania before Judge Gerald Feissner on March 28, 2011, by a company called Creative Energy Options, which is based in White Haven.

The filing is for a total of $10,476 and states: "Unpaid balance  due for services 2/4/09 to 3/23/09. Client requested Dr. Sylvia Lafair fly to Los Angeles California to perform marriage counseling then refused to pay for travel fees." Dr. Lafair confirmed to on Thursday that the suit had been filed, but she would not comment on any specifics regarding the counseling which took place with Kate.
Kate and Jon Gosselin’s marriage played out on the Jon and Kate Plus 8 reality show before the couple got divorced in Dec 2009 after ten year of marriage. Kate now has her own reality show Kate Plus 8. The company runs a variety of services including the Country Place Retreat and Conference Center in White Haven.

Friend: Kate Gosselin Shocked Jon's Life Coach Is Suing Her:

Reality star Kate Gosselin is mystified that she's getting sued by her ex's life coach, Dr. Sylvia Lafair, for allegedly not paying over $10,000 in marriage counseling fees to the Pennsylvania-based doc, with friends telling me the suit clashes with reality. "How many times did Jon make it crystal clear that the ex-couple never had marriage counseling," a friend of Kate's tells me. "In several interviews, he blamed Kate's refusal to seek counseling as one of the main factors that led up to their marriage falling apart. So how could Kate possibly owe this money?" Indeed, Jon told ABC back in 2009 that "I have a $22,000 therapy bill. I mean, I tried to have marriage counseling. I did it myself. She refused to go."

The complaint was filed on March 28, 2011, by Creative Energy Options, claiming a total of $10,476 was still owed for services rendered in 2009 between Feb. 4 and March 23. "Client requested Dr. Sylvia Lafair fly to Los Angeles California to perform marriage counseling then refused to pay for travel fees," the filing reads. "This doctor didn't provide marriage counseling, she was Jon's life coach. And we can all see how well that worked out," an insider tells me. "If anyone owes her money it's Jon. Although if I were him I would ask for my money back!"

Kate Gosselin Gears Up For ‘Kate Plus 8,’ Talks Dating, Jon:

Kate Gosselin may have settled into her life as a single mom, but the “Kate Plus 8” star said she hasn’t quite figured out how to date again.
“It’s just strange,” Kate told Access Hollywood in New York on Monday morning. “After this many years, to just be back out there in the world? If somebody arises, that’d be great. If not, it is what it is.” The reality TV matriarch, whose show returns to TLC for a new season on Monday night, said that part of the problem with dating is her lack of time, while the other is – with eight children at home to plan for — having a clear enough head to tune into the other person.

“It’s hard to find the time, it’s hard to go on a date, and hear somebody, blah, blah, blah-ing and you’re thinking, ‘I don’t care, I don’t care! What am I making for dinner tomorrow night?’’” Kate said.
While she has a sparse dating schedule, Kate is still in contact with her ex-husband, of course – Jon Gosselin — and she told Access the two are communicating better following their bitter 2009 divorce.
“He’s working now so he has something to focus on that’s more constructive,” Kate said. “He sees the kids.
“I have remained the same throughout,” Kate continued of her behavior toward Jon. “I want it to be peaceful, but I can only control my side of it, so I just deal with whatever he hands me and try to be positive. Generally speaking, [it] depends on the day.
“I guess it’s a lot about my attitude and this is what I have to deal with for the rest of my life, so might as well make the best of it,” she added.
As for the former couple’s children, Kate told Access the Gosselin youngsters – Maddie and Kara (the twins, born in 2000), and sextuplets Joel, Aaden, Colin, Alexis, Hannah and Leah (born in 2004), are enjoying their escapades that involve the cameras.
“The kids love it and every weekend that they’re home we have something planned. Every vacation, they look forward to it, and we still love it,” she said. “I certainly would not be needing to coerce them into this. If they didn’t love it, we wouldn’t do it any more, but they’re loving it, we’re having the most amazing experiences.”
One of those experiences – featured on Monday night’s episode – sees the Gosselin matriarch and her brood heading Down Under. “A complete dream come true,” Kate said. “To fly that far away and live that dream was just amazing. We still talk about it every day.” “Kate Plus 8” airs on TLC at 10/9 C.
