Kate the Great
I think I’m the only person in the free world that likes Kate Gosselin. People hate on her because of how she treats her husband. I’m sure that she treated him like that before she married him, so they both knew what they were getting. However, neither were expecting 8 children which is why their world is collapsing in front of our eyes. Kate is a bitch. Yeah, you might be bitchy if you had to raise 8 children with someone that obviously wants his freedom while you will be enslaved for the rest of your life. How dare she get plastic surgery or go to the spa? Yeah, you might need a tummy tuck after 8 kids and you might want a new haircut or manicure once in a while. I didn’t know that having children meant that you had to forgo doing anything nice for yourself. She has a nanny. If you could afford it, you’d have a nanny for your one child let alone 8. She’s so mean lately. If I were looking at raising 8 children alone, while my husband was having a public affair with a 23-year-old, while everyone was judging me, I’d probably be a little pissed. How could she do one more season? Since, she will clearly be the sole breadwinner (remember, he was unemployed at the start of the show which is why they agreed to do the show) and alone (when your husband spends time with his girlfriend instead of attending your birthday party or his children’s events, it’s a pretty safe bet that you won’t be seeing much of him), you probably need to make as much money as possible, since he’ll clearly be giving it to someone else.
