Most people breathed a sigh of relief when they heard that Kate Gosselin and her eight children weren’t going to be throwing b!tch fits on TV for much longer, but now without Kate Plus 8, they’ll just b!tch IRL.
Kate complained to People that she and her brood were totally unprepared for the show’s cancellation and she doesn’t know how she’ll support them.
“I’m freaking out. Big time. My kids weren’t ready. Nobody was…After the show was canceled, I said, ‘I’ll go back to my old nursing job.’ If nothing comes up, I’ll do it. But the scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn’t let me continue to provide well for me eight kids.”
And where’s Jon in this situation? He needs to get off his lazy @ss and contribute something else to society besides giving Ed Hardy the core chunk of its income. I’m sure Kate and her kids have a pretty extravagant lifestyle now that they’ll need to trim down, but eight children are bound to be a big money suck in general.
The saddest part of this situation is, as always, the effect on the Gosselin children. You can totally tell they’re going to have tooons of issues later on.
“When [Collin] learned of the show’s cancellation he said ‘I feel like crying but I can’t.’ I said, ‘Because you don’t want anyone to see your tears?’ and he said yes. So I said ‘Cry when you’re in bed and nobody’s looking. That’s what I do.”
I know that it’s the epitome of a sob story, but still. Wow. I feel sad for them.
