Kate Gosselin Cuts Off Her Signature Reverse Mullet, Loses Magic Power To Horrify Us

Kate Gosselin, possibly embracing he spirit of New Years reinvention, has ditched her signature hairdo and popped up on the cover of this week’s People, proclaiming that things are going to be ‘different’ in 2010. She tells the mag:

“It’s good to have hair again. I never thought I’d have short hair for as long as I did. I feel like this is a fresh start, a fresh me, a fresh life… I’ve got it. I am now Kate Clean Slate.”

While we applaud her self-improvement efforts, however misguided, we have to wonder: will the loss of her signature backwards-mullet nightmare hair somehow weaken her ability to shock and horrify us with her ridiculous family-exploiting antics?
