Last night, my husband and I caught the tail end of the Kate Plus 8 show, the one where she brings some of her children to a race track. I’m not sure where they were, I didn’t catch the whole thing. It shows her children squealing in delight as they watch from the center podium as Kate Gosselin takes a stab at racing the muscle car around the track and as usual, cloaks herself in fake modesty as she compares her driving to that of the professional racer. He drove her kids around the track faster than she did, providing her children with greater thrills and giving her a scripted reason to play the “delicate flower” card that she seems to embrace so well.
At the end of the show, her kids are allowed to run amok on the track. They find amusement in running up and down the slanted raceway and tell their mother, Kate, that it’s steeper than it looks. It’s a drizzly day out and the pavement is wet. Presumably at the nudging of her production crew, Kate joins the kids as they are making their way up and down the slanted raceway. They joke about her inability to join them because they know, mommy doesn’t want to look bad on TV. She coyly tells the camera that playing with her children on their level is something that she can’t do in high heels.
My question to Kate Gosselin is this — why in the HELL are you wearing 3″ inch heels to go race car driving. I mean really. Who does that??
I suppose being single and having 47 children, it’s difficult to find somebody to date who isn’t in it for the short celebrity cycle and potential money, so maybe she thinks that she has to wear her “come eff me shoes” and bat her eyelashes to get her some booty or more disturbingly, to get her “sexy” on. (BTW, blech, that eye-lift didn’t do you any favors Kate.)
I find the show so distasteful, I’m wondering, who is still watching this show? Who? Tell me. Who makes up the demographic that thinks that she has any credibility left whatsoever?
Furthermore, if that wasn’t enough to make me twitch, at the end of the show, she gets on her holy high horse (made much easier, given the height advantage of her “come eff me shoes”) and encourages everyone to donate to charity and help feed hungry children. A good cause she manages to spoil. She then schools the audience — if everybody donated a few cans of food, we could stop world hunger.
Does she really expect us to believe this insincere BS of hers? How much money could she donate if she didn’t have to wear the best designers, makeup and buy a million dollar house? And don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I begrudge her these things, but don’t tell the viewing audience what they can do to make a difference while your highly public, media spectacle of a life is constantly whored out to the world while you complain about what money is rightfully yours all while exploiting your children for as many meal tickets your bank can cash. You are the true definition of gluttony, so kindly, shove your self righteousness up your liposuction-ed ass and excuse me while I vomit in your age inappropriate shoes.
