Kate Gosselin Is a Fickle Boss

Kate Gosselin Is a Fickle Boss-photo

Apparently, Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom Kate Gosselin isn't any better to the hired help than she is to her long-suffering husband, Jon Gosselin.

Us Magazine spoke to Gosselin's former baby nurse Angela Krall, who informed them that Gosselin had fired 40 nurses and nurses' aides in the three months prior to her hiring.

Sounds like there's not a lot of job security in the Gosselin household!

Krall goes on to dish that Kate—who, according to rumors, at least has a fondness for her bodyguard—would leave "demeaning" signs in every room of the hours, detailing rules in minute detail, and canned one employee on the spot because she washed her hands at the kitchen sink instead of the bathroom. "Kate flipped," Krall recalls. "She thought it was cross-contamination."

Gosselin's persnickety nature also caused tensions with her father, Kenton Kreider, adds a family insider. At one point Kreider, a preacher, delivered cribs donated by his parishioners to his daughter.

"They didn't match and Kate rejected them," the source reveals.

Ouch!

    If she's always been verbally/physically abusive towards him on the show it is a pretty good bet, he had an affair long ago and she knew and chose to stay with him. That kind of anger doesn't just appear. I'm guessing it was after the twins were born and she couldn't give him the attention he needed. She's a control freak and he's got no backbone/no morality.

    They should just stop giving anyone associated with "Jon and Kate Plus 8" additional publicity. It's disgusting and clearly worthless news. We have kids dying in Darfur as we speak and we're worrying about Jon and Kate? This is horrendous.

    Well, Kate is a control freak not only wiht John but her children. They are not allowed to play and get dirty. If they start getting dirty then everything must end and get put away. How about the ice cream episode when she flew off the handle because they were getting VANILLA ice cream on their clothes. For God sake it was vanilla and blended in. I always bought vanilla for my children just in case they did drip. She always states she wants her kids to be "exposed". They don't have a normal life. Everywhere they go it's always first class. They can't go to the circus and sit in with the crowd they sit on the floor where the tickets cost a fortune. It almost makes me want to throw up to see her always standing with her two hands clasped together like Virgin Mary or somebody important ready to give some astounding statement. The twins are so rude and ungrateful. They are spoiled little brats and will probably cause her a lot of problems in their teenage years. They don't get what they want they stomp, scream, and show no respect to her or Jon. I say get them off the TV and let them work out their problems by themselves. Why pay them big bucks to cheat on each other and exploit their kids. Kate is a phycho who does nothing fun with her kids other than direct, boss, and demand. She doesn't take care of them because she's too busy signing books or giving false statements about how to raise 8 kids, when they should be talking to the nurses or nannies who are actually doing the job. Let's watch normal families like Table for 12 or the Duggars. Ditch the Jon and Kate and say farewell to two people who need to grow up and start worrying about their children instead of their ratings.

    Having eight children (albeit not an excuse) can be taxing on any family let alone the adults involved. Some people have difficulty and build mechanisms, thought patterns and coping behaviors to compensate for whatever stressors/concerns that they feel overwhelmed by. It's pretty transparent that Kate feels she has little or no control and that if she does not run a tight ship, that she will lose control. This exercise of control and domination is clear with john. I can understand why she is so compulsive and anal. If you had eight children and an unemployed husband-you're out on the road and working your buns off for the future sustainability of your children when the money train stops and pulls into the station, you might be overwhelmed and short tempered as well. It is not for anyone to judge anyone. Belittling John because of the above mentioned is not acceptable however he is an adult and makes his own choices and decisions. He is also on the money train for his children. Understandably so. An unhappy marriage is extremely taxing though does not excuse infidelity on either individuals part. As for the exploitation of the children, give me a break. I can see how some may construe it as such but on the other hand, I can see how the parents would want to continue to ensure a safe and financially sound future for their children. Kate can be terrible and I am sure John is no innocent party. I have a girlfriend who had a husband that was quetly abusive. Not to say that john is, i'm just illustrating a point. He used to say infuriating things to her under his breath-just loud enough for her to hear but no one else so she would fly off the handle in a rage while he sat back and had others pity him for her 'mood swings'. They are now divorced. She is happliy re-married and has three children and has been for eight years! I cringe at the outcome of this media infested family. I hope to God that whether together or apart, everyone takes a setp back to contemplate their life, choices, love and future.

    She is the original Octo mom. She had the invitro fertilization for the twins and the sextuplets. She is just as crazy as the Octo mom too. She is a control freak. I can see why Jon wants to get away from her.

    I've notice she always tell Jon stop interupting her when she is speaking, then when it's his turn she does the same thing. What a control freak, yes she belittle him a lot on the show, yo sip it up!!

    I don't like to have hands washed in the sink that I lay my dishes in either. Every gross thing that you wash off of your skin will then get onto the things you EAT OFF OF! YUCK That's why you then wash your dishes as well..duh? Unless of course you leave your clean dishes sitting in the sink soaking up mildew and fumes from the garbage disposal..now that's sick.

    Let's see, she belittles him, hits him, screams and raves constantly like the loon she is. Says that he is to fat, when she had to have all her fat sucked out by a plastic surgeon who's wife convinced him to do it free...and you'all wonder why he looked elsewhere... message to kate, look in the mirror (try not to vomit from the ugly hair cut though

    kat127 - she also hit him a lot on the show. People complained and they had this episode where they asked them questions from the public and this came up. She was like "Oh, their just 'love taps'. Yeah, 'love taps' in the middle of an angry rage. I bet a guy would get away with that...

    Does anyone think this show would have lasted a New york minute if the MAN had been verbally/emotionally abusive to the woman on every episode? Hell no! Kate does not get a pass because she is female, to criticize, mock, belittle & constantly rage at her husband. Look how insecure she has made him feel about his weight! He looks ashamed & has to justify everything he eats because she told him he was fat, ON NATIONAL TV!! This is another common tactic employed by abusers-to destroy the self-esteem/ego of their "partner" so that the abused person is more easily dominated & controlled. This woman is an abusive narcissist & she has become addicted to the spotlight. TLC can only redeem themselves by turning this around by staging an "intervention" & getting Kate out of the spotlight & onto a psychiatrists couch. Woman are not often the abusers, but it definitley happens as is so clearly demonstrated on this terrible show. TLC could help shed some light on this often silent crime, as many men are ashamed to admit they are being abused in any way by a woman. Continuing to allow this egregious behavior to be presented as a "fun family" is absolutely shameful & is a slap in the face to all that have suffered in any form of domestic abuse. Please join me in writing to TLC/Discovery channel and asking for an immediate stop of filming, unless they specifically address the emotional/verbal abuse against Jon Gosselin and the steps taken to beginning healing including treatment for Kate.

    right on mommy-stl! [quote=mommy - stl]OK .. this is silly.. I fired 6 daycares when my nieces were little.. Seriously I took them out of 6 places because they were not getting taken care of correctly.. and I was just AUNTIE>.. now that I am a mom I can see (if I had to use daycare or sitters) being extremely PICKY!! No one knows if this is entirely true.. nor do you know why they were fired.. I am sure more than one tried to cash in .. EVEN THEN... Kate's brother is the tool!! Who does that?? Really.. who goes on a half ***rate**** website and trashes his sisters life .... I think Kate grew up in a CRAZY family and had very little and is trying hard not to inflict that on her kids and give them what she didn't get as a child... (we all are guilty of that.. we all want better and more for our kids than we had..) OK... I have to admit the woman has gotten a big HEAD over the past few months(and thats not even counting the SONIC the HEDGEHOG HAIR DO..Kate what is that??.. other than a mess) But I think for the most part she is trying to ride this money train ( which I would do) for as long as she can.. I mean 8 kids.. no hubby working.. think LONG HAUL...it cost what on average to raise 1 normal healthy child from birth to 21(in collage) what at least $300,000(just a guess)... now times that by 8 and you have roughly $2,400,000...... And that doesn't include if they need special care , specialists etc.. etc.. I think deep down she knows the show will not go on forever and is trying to make sure her ENTIRE family has what it needs and some extras. What is wrong with that.. ?? And please drop the whole ..the kids are being exploted.. STOP WATCHING READING AND SUCH>>>> if you think that is the case then do not watch and tell your friends and family not to watch.. then the ratings go down down show gets pulled and they get "normal" .. Now let's PRAY for the kids and the family that God can help them find peace and mend the family...

    How exactly is Jon suffering? He married the loon, had a crap load of kids with her, then cheated. Yet she is the one that's wrong and we feel sorry for him? Please. He made his choices and I don't feel bad for this loser.
