Report: Kate Gosselin Tells Kids, “You’re Dead Meat!”

Apparently, a day at the beach with Kate Gosselin is no day at the beach.

Us Weekly reports that, during her recent vacation to Bald Head Island, North Carolina, with her mega-brood, the the Jon & Kate Plus 8 über-breeder was “rude, mean and hateful” and threatened her kids—when she wasn’t ignoring them altogether.

Fellow vacationer Ann Michele Sweeney tells the mag that Gosselin “completely ignored her children the entire time,” instead opting to text on her phone and hang out with her bodyguard and rumored boyfriend Steve Neild.

On the rare occasions that she did interact with her kids, it got ugly.

“When Kate sat on the edge of the pool, she told one of [the twins], ‘If you splash me, you’re dead meat,'” adds Sweeney. “She was not joking at all.”

To which the bullied tot replied, “Mommy, you’re mean.”

You’re just figuring that out now, kid?

Kim Kirsch, another vacationer, asserts, “Everyone that’s encountered her says she’s been rude, mean and hateful.”

No wonder Kate’s long-suffering husband, Jon Gosselin, is looking to carve out a little private space for himself.
