TLC plans to air a single episode special, featuring Kate Gosselin and her eight children. The Gosselins appeared on TLC in the popular reality series “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” and “Kate Plus 8”. Kate’s exploits have provided media fodder for fans and critics to praise and condemn both reality shows, as well as Kate’s other endeavors. Putting Kate and her brood back on TV, even for one night, will surely add to the list of awkward moments her family and fans have shared over the years. Let’s look back at some of Kate Gosselin’s most cringe worthy moments.
Is Kate Gosselin Gay
On “The Joy Behar Show” in 2011, Kate said there had been a lack of men in her life and she would consider going gay to fill the lack of physical intimacy. Whether she meant it jokingly, it seemed utterly insincere and met with criticism from the LGBT community and TV viewers.
Kate Plus 8 on Sara Palin’s Alaska
The Gosselins appeared on “Sara Palin’s Alaska” to go camping with the Palin family. Sara was charming, even likable. Kate however, was determined to be miserable. She was scowling about sharing the spotlight with Sara, long before the cold weather soured her mood. She ran for a hotel, snubbing Sara, and took all the kids with her even though many of them were enjoying themselves.
Kate Gosselin Cook Book
Kate Gosselin’s long publicized cook book was a fiasco. The poorly written and illustrated book showed Kate has below average skills at cooking. The recipes were widely criticized for being greasy, fatty, poor nutrition, and high sodium. Bloggers at realitytvkids.com joked that the book should come with a can opener.
Kate Gosselin and Kendra Wilkinson Celebrity Wife Swap
Kate made Kendra cry more than once during this social experiment gone wrong. Unbelievable as it seems, the actress and former Playboy Playmate looked like mom of the year compared to Kate Gosselin. Kendra broke down in tears at having to enforce Kate’s strict rules and overwhelming list of chores on the 8 children. She also cried when Kate insulted her face to face at the end of the show, criticizing her so cruelly, that Kendra’s husband had to step in and tell Kate she was wrong.
Kate Snaps at Twins During Today Show Interview
Perhaps the ugliest of Kate’s media spectacles this year during a live “Today Show” appearance where she allowed twins Mady and Cara to be interviewed. The girls froze and sat silent as statues when they were unable to find anything to say about their home life. Kate quietly berated them, the way you might politely scold a child.
