7 Reasons I Admire Kate Gosselin

7 Reasons I Admire Kate Gosselin

I remember watching Kate Gosselin and her adorable tots during their first TLC specials years ago and wondering how the exhausted young mother managed it all. Time has passed, Jon and Kate Plus 8 aired and became a fan favorite, and fame struck the once struggling family featured in those early episodes. I still admire the mom of eight for good reasons.

I, too, am one of the ones still in Kate's corner. I think anyone in the public spotlight will face inevitable backlash. It's true the Gosselins are being paid handsomely for their involvement - they're ensuring that every single one of their eight children will be able to go to whatever college they choose, and they'll have a hell of "one interesting fact about me" to share at orientation. Some of the commentators think that Kate should be cutting her book tour short and heading home; no doubt she is under contract by her publisher to complete a list of public appearances. If 1) things are as bad at home as portrayed in the media, they'll still be bad without adding breach of contract to the mix. If 2) things are trumped up and blown out of proportion, Kate is honoring her obligations. It's true the Gosselin family has chosen to live their lives in public, so there's no reasonable plea to leave the whole thing alone, but if your objection is to the exploitation of their children, there's a pretty powerful trickle-down effect from you not watching->advertisers don't buy->sponsors quit sending stuff->TLC renegotiates contract->Gosselins decide it's not worth their time. I hope this family the best and I think they have beautiful children with extremely capable and loving parents.

geez, 'anonymous' ... for someone who has 1) too much time on their hands (700-word comment) and 2) obviously seen every episode... you sure are judgemental. if you hate kate so much, why do you watch the show? ps..... LOVE her hair !! it's very cool.

I like the show. I like the family. I don't think I can be Kate's friend IRL, but that is not the point. And I feel no need to bash her. It will be interesting to see her and Jon work their issues out, personally I would do that privately. Good luck to them. I appreciate them showing how they parent on TV.

I'm shocked at how much people dislike her, as evidenced above. I don't really feel either way, but the few episodes I've seen I have been impressed with how well behaved her children are. More parents in America could take her lessons and raise better behaved kids. As for her belittle-ing Jon, I don't feel bad for him. He's an adult. There are 2 people in a marriage. 2 people to sign the television contract. I'm always shocked how harsh women can be to other women.
