Living off the Gosselin’s Fame

Jon and Kate Gosselin have appeared on the cover of just about every magazine, newspaper and tabloid across the country and it seems that just as with all celebrities, these two have their very own people from ‘back when’ that now want to glob onto their 15 minutes of fame. It started with Deanna Hummel’s brother, who confirmed the story that Deanna was having an affair with Jon, continued with people such as Aunt Jodie and Uncle Kevin who talked at length about the problems in the marriage and in the family, and is now spreading to people who have nothing to do with who situation. First, there’s Nadya Suleman who you might know better as OctoMom.

The feud that has started between Nadya and Kate is quite reminiscent of the feud between Angelina and Madonna except that in this case, it’s two D-list celebrities and in the case of the latter, it’s two of the most famous people in the world. Kate said bad things about Nadya and then Nadya said bad things about Kate, pretty much. It seems that women just don’t like it when other women step into a role that they feel they can feel better, more efficiently, and sometimes have for a longer time. And in this case, the fact that it’s a feud between two whack jobs doesn’t help. From Celebitchy,

“Rolling her eyes and looking intensely angry, Octomom Nadya Suleman was videotaped by Radar Online watching “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ star Kate Gosselin talk about her in unflattering terms on The Dr. Phil show. Gosselin told Dr. Phil that she had 50 helpers and that she was worried how Suleman would cope with 14 children without a partner. Suleman said “I have like 10 helpers a week and why am I not overwhelmed? Why is it not a chaotic mess?”
Gosselin claimed on Dr. Phil that Suleman had emotional problems for choosing to have so many children at once, and Suleman in turn attacked her and threw in some pseudo-intellectual posturing:

“She has her own obvious issues, internal issues. She needs to stop harshly making judgments towards me… That’s human nature, happens to people who are less educated.”

“I surround myself internally and externally with positive energy. She does the opposite.”

When the interviewer read out more of Kate’s statements about how hard it must be to raise all those kids alone, Nadya said “histrionic” several times in a sing song voice and it was kind of creepy. “OK mom, that’s all I have to say,” she added.

As for all choosing to have so many kids Suleman said “It’s over, it’s gone, I moved on with my life. My children are extremely healthy, strong and happy. Don’t you have, like, a lot of issues in your life? A lot of marital problems?

“Why are you so desperate to glob on to my life? For attention?”

I’m pretty sure that Kate doesn’t need Nadya for attention right now and if I was either of them, I would keep my mouth shut as much as possible, no matter what talk show wanted me on or how much I wanted to defend myself. Neither of them need more media attention at the moment and they’re both too deranged to realize that. At the end of the day though, this one was Kate’s fault. She did start it by talking trash about Nadya.

Someone else’s big mouth that isn’t Kate’s fault and that is only flapping to get their 15 minutes, is Kate’s ex-fiance, Adam Miller. Apparently, he’s got the ‘hot’ scoop on what Kate was really like 15 years ago and she should be ashamed. From Star, 

“Who knew? Kate Gosselin was engaged before she ever met Jon — and now the fiancé she has never spoken about is telling all to Star, and he does not paint a pretty picture.

For starters, Adam Miller says the reality star supermom pressured him to marry her — but he broke off the engagement after she cheated on him at her 21st birthday party.

“She hooked up with some guy in a Corvette,” factory worker Adam says in a world exclusive interview. “She was always chasing the money.”

Kate caught Adam’s eye back in 1995 in the small town of Kutztown, Pa. Adam was 17 and a recent high school graduate. Kate, a nursing student, was a year older. Still he managed to play sugar daddy to his bride-to-be. “I spoiled Kate with gifts, like a diamond bracelet and a gold locket, and she loved that. I think one of the main reasons she liked me is that I had so much money flowing.”

Adam, 33, also reveals that Kate was nothing like the organic-food-loving health nut she is now. “We’d eat mostly hamburgers, fries, Cheetos. A typical night out was at Ruby Tuesday’s!”

Okay, is anyone the same way they were 15 years ago? Don’t most young people like to eat total crap and then they grow up and realize that it’s total crap? I don’t think Kate can be blamed for liking to go to burger joints on dates. And yeah, generally if you lavish a girl with gifts, she’s going to love it. I don’t think you can look too deeply into that either. Cheating on him at her birthday party and pressuring him to marry her? I don’t know. Even if she did, who cares? It was 15 years ago and it really has nothing to do with the current situation.
