Kate Gosselin speaks at women’s conference, is a “total diva” on DWTS

Kate Gosselin is continuing to make public appearances as gears up to spend 3-4 days away from home appearing on Dancing with The Stars, “because she insists on putting her children first.” The much reviled reality star spoke at a Women’s expo sponsored by a local hospital in South Bend, Indiana Saturday. She had her hair extensions in again, after removing them briefly to sport a short round bob. Kate discussed her children, career as a nurse, and her upcoming sting on DWTS. There’s at least one video of this that a person in the audience recorded, and Radar’s account is accurate in that Kate didn’t say much of interest. I barely caught anything about her infertility treatments as Radar reports, but the first part of the speech could have been cut off. Her speech was pretty boring, although she did talk about her career as a nurse. She said “as you know I am a nurse… it feels like 100 years ago now. When I walked through those doors [of the hospital]
this morning, I felt very at home like I was going back to work. That’s a good thing
.” This begs the question – why doesn’t she go back to work as a nurse, then? The answer is obvious, she’s getting paid much more for “putting her kids first” by switching out her hair every couple of weeks and doing more reality shows.

As for her kids, she said “They’re happy and thriving and we’re working together as we find our new normal.”

I’m working hard as a mom at home, and as a working traveling mom. I just completed my third book… I’m dancing every day… for Dancing with The Stars. It is so out of the ordinary for me and so fun.”

Speaking of Kate’s gig on Dancing, The NY Post reports that she’s being a “total diva” on set and is rude and “frosty” to fellow cast and crewmembers. This is consistent with other reports we’ve heard about the mom of eight, and if you watch her show she’s a definite taskmaster who takes no prisoners. I believe this. What’s more is that Kate allegedly kept Johnny Weir from participating as he refused to be on the same show. For shame! I would much rather see Weir than Gosselin any day.

Kate Gosselin is being a “total diva” on the set of “Dancing With the Stars” — snubbing other contestants and behaving frostily to crew members, sources tell Page Six. The recently divorced mom of eight has been rehearsing for the ABC show, which starts its new season March 22. Her icy behavior also persuaded Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir to pull out of talks about being on the show because he didn’t want to work alongside Gosselin. A “DWTS” source said, “Kate doesn’t want anything to do with other contestants . . . While there’s a lot of camaraderie among the crew and other stars including Pamela Anderson, Kate has set herself apart . . . She wants to be queen bee.” Gosselin’s rep didn’t get back to us. A show source said, “She’s been rehearsing in Pennsylvania to be near her kids. For the short time she was in LA, she and the cast got along great.”

[From The NY Post]

Weir said last week that his cousin lives right next to Kate’s old house and that “it was really annoying for everybody” to have to deal with paparazzi in the neighborhood. He also trashed Kate’s behavior at a charity skating event they both attended in Connecticut last September. He said “Kate Gosselin was playing the diva act…I was disappointed to meet her and I was so disappointed she was involved in the show.” Team Weir! I’m hoping Kate gets voted off Dancing in the first or second week.

    Please let her be gone the first week…please!! I so dislike this woman and hate that she’s on my favorite show – I really don’t want her on it and I cannot understand why they would put her on it.

  2. meme says:

    those poor kids. both parents obviously have their priorities completely screwed up.

  3. Tia C says:

    I’m considering watching this stupid show just in the hopes of seeing her get voted off!

  4. canadianchick says:

    If I had been at that conference I wouldve thrown a rotten tomato at her dress. The red wouldve matched the grey dress, no? Still voting for a Gosselin ban, who’s with me?

  5. DoMaJoReMc says:

    I got up this morning and turned on the television as I was getting ready for work. Apparently the last channel I was watching yesterday was TLC so, that’s what’s on this morning. It was a re-run of Jon & KHate plus 8. She was gone for a week for her tummy tuck and make-over, etc. When she got back, she went up to see the kids and I heard her say to her kids, “I never want to miss another week of your lives again!” I swear, I dropped my toothbrush in the sink. All I heard were the little ones keep saying, “Hi Mommy, hi Mommy, hi Mommy, hi Mommy” It was so sad.

    Then I actually sat down and watched the Duggars. Say what you will about this family, but there is nothing but love, kindness and humility with this family. (No matter what their religious beliefs are.) No divas here.

    Am I surprised KHate is acting like a real Diva on the set (or everywhere else for that matter)? NOPE! You shouldn’t be, either. This is such a common thing I hear about her no matter where she goes or what she does. Who in HELL gave her the OK to have that F*cking sense of entitlement? I want her to go away. NOW.

    I have never watched DWTS, nor will I ever, as long as she is on. I want her to fall flat on her face LITERALLY as well as figuratively.

    @ canadianchic

    I don’t know what we have to do to get a GOSSELIN BAN, but let’s make it work.

    The only reason I felt the need to click on this link was to make the comment about the show I saw this morning and how ironic it was.


  7. guilty pleasures says:

    What to say? More of the same. I know we all wonder what in the world goes on in her head to make her think of herself as so far above anyone else? She can’t actually DO anything…including dance.
    It is the fault of the internets that she has the notoriety she does, BAN THE INTERNETS!!!
    (it’ll work!)

  8. Icecat says:

    I cannot stand this woman. I’ve never watched dancing with the stars, but I REALLY hope her dumbass get voted off the first week. Good God I hope she dosen’t win…

  9. Big Mama says:

    I just want to see her fall (on DWTS) in an epic sort of way…

  10. Lala11_7 says:

    I’m sorry…

    When has this woman EVER NOT acted like a…


    I mean…was there a time in her life that HASN’T happened??! Bueller?!?!

  11. nycmom10024 says:

    Okay, so Weir can’t participate because he doesn’t like Gosselin? Please, she may be an annoying diva, but he sounds like one as well, if that comment is true. So what she’s a B**tch! Nearly everyone on this show this season is an “interesting” choice. I looking forward to Gosselin, Pamela, the whole imo oddball cast.

  12. bellaluna says:

    I know several people in my life (unfortunately!) who act like divas, like they are worth more than anyone else they come into contact with, and expect to be treated as such. This has absolutely no bearing on whether or not our reality matches theirs’; it’s just the way they think. (Two names immediately came to mind as I was reading this article – C__i, K_l__y, I’m thinking of you!)

    Kate is no different than these people, except that she’s actually had a taste of fame, and it is her heroine. She wants it, she needs it, and she’ll do whatever she has to to get it.

  13. Novaraen says:

    I knew this b*tch was going to do this…she looked fame hungry even waaaay back when Jon and Kate plus 8 started. Now she is riding the 15 minute fame train hard….poor kids! Go home to your kids Kate…seriously….go home and quit talking about how you’re such a hard working “traveling” mom. WTF ever!

  14. Whatever says:

    DWTS is a waste of air space. As for this story, not so sure. I just heard this morning that she is still in PA rehearsing, so kind of hard to be a diva on set.

  15. Erin says:

    It makes me sad that there are enough idiots who buy what she’s selling to afford her these opportunities and press. It’s pretty telling that she’s constantly talking about how “the kids come first”, then talking about whatever she’s promoting in the next breath.

  16. lucy2 says:

    The best thing she could do for her kids is exit show biz, go back to working as a nurse, and try to make their lives as normal as possible.
    The longer she tries to stay in the spotlight, the more scrutiny and negativity there is towards her, her slug of an ex, and their poor kids. I think anyone with any hint of common sense and putting their kids first would see that’s what should be done, but she won’t give up her “fame”.

  17. Jazz says:

    Women’s conference? What was she speaking about? “How To Emasculate Your Husband 101″?

    As for her saying “I am a nurse”, she hasn’t been a nurse since she started breeding for profit!

  18. Judy says:

    Totally believe the “diva on set” remarks. She has been in New York FAR more than she’s been at home. A number of people, including me, have called her on getting rid of the dogs and yet saying everything is “for the kids.” All of a sudden, the dogs are coming home, because Kate says she wouldn’t get rid of her kids if they misbehaved, so why get rid of the dogs. RIGHT. The dogs are coming back FOR ONE REASON: VOTES. This is the coldest, most vacuous, self-entitled “B” on the face of the Earth.

  19. Eileen Yover says:

    I’m sorry to be harsh…but who the F#ck is this woman and what are her successes to be traveling around and speaking? What are her accomplishments exactly? And who are the people that hire her with the excitement she has anything remotely helpful to share?? AND who is buying her books!!
    Ok I’m done.

  20. ronnie says:

    It sounds like Johnny Weir is keeping himself off the show – that’s his choice, not Kate’s.

  21. Ana says:

    Off topic, but everytime I come to this website it a little box pops open and displays a warning that says I have a virus. Then the page switches and you can see Trojans downloading. Does anyone else have this problem????

  22. SolitaryAngel says:

    @ Ana: Nope! I don’t have that problem.

    And I hate this bitch with a passion I don’t understand; I’ve never watched that show of hers (and now I never will), so the depth of my hatred surprises me. But there it is and there it shall remain. I’m going to watch DWTS just to see her fail.

  23. Celebitchy says:

    @Ana can you please send me more information about that to info-at-celebitchy.com? I’m very sorry that’s happening to you and we will do our best to figure it out asap. The most important detail is where you live as the ads are based on where you’re from. Also what message you’re getting and what anti-virus program you use. We do work with a reputable company but very rarely rogue ads sneak through. I’m in the US now and am running Kaspersky Internet security. I have not seen any warnings with the site and would like to get on this right away.

    -update- Ana does not have virus protection and could possibly have another infection on her computer that is causing the pop-ups.

  24. Maritza says:

    Johnny Weir knew there would only be enough room for one diva not two! Either way once people see her attitude no matter how good she dances they won’t vote for her so she better stop the bullshit and get with the program!

  25. lin234 says:

    Wow, what a mistake! Gosselin over Weir? If Weir dances anything the way he ice skates, I can’t even imagine how hard he would rock that dance floor. Never saw the show and apparently never will.

    I refuse to even watch anything she’s on even out of curiosity. By tuning in, even out of contempt, it enables networks to keep hiring her on television because the numbers are up for whatever reason.

  26. Laurie says:

    I read another interview where Kate answered her critics and said lots lots of moms are away from their kids for long periods of time – like Angelina Jolie. I guess Kate thinks she is like AJ now?!? Dear God – please make this woman go away & actually BE with the kids she so desperately wanted!!

  27. Cinderella says:

    She snubs the other stars because she already knows they don’t want anything to do with her bottom-rung reality TV whore ass.


  28. Kim says:

    She will be first female voted off because public cant stand her and no one will vote for her. Plus if she is pulling diva antics the judges can & will boot her for that but say its her bad dancing.

  29. Kim says:

    I think after DWTS her 15 mins will be up. What else can she do? Maybe the Apprentice? She isnt going to get movie roles (like she may think) so i think her 15 mins will be up soon.

  30. hatsumomo says:

    Ana, bit of advice, date someone who works at Rackspace if you can. My man is awesome with keeping things running smoothly, updated, and its a plus my family gets free comp fixes!

  31. westender says:

    @ Ana and Celebitchy, I have had the same problem with popups and it would also say that this site “Celebitchy” has a virus and then it would direct you to a computer virus repair site. Just make sure your computer is up to date with virus protection

  32. Ana says:

    hatsumomo- I’m already married to a cop…so I’m gonna have to pay and learn how to do it myself! lol. Mine expired and I’m kind of stupid when it comes to computer maintenance (among other things) so I will be working on this.

  33. Rianna says:

    yeah i am with you hatsumomo… date a geek and you are set for life as far as computers go lol!

    and kate… bah. i think in other posts i have already said what i thought she was. i wish weir was on dwts though. she is ruining everything… like those damn trojans lol!

  34. Chuck Roast says:

    Well I was [past tense] a fan and rooting for her [DWTS] until I read this article and others like this one.

    Just another big I am lacking modesty and class.

  35. tracy says:

    @ Canadianchic
    I’m still supporting for a ban as well, count me in

    @Jazz-Lol, good post!

    I personally hope she gets kicked in the head, then falls, then stepped on in the name of dance….then I could watch that show and enjoy it.
    KHate “pity me & pay me” Gosselin, eeewww!

  36. happymom says:

    I agree with all the comments that she’s a fame whore and rude. A bit off topic-but what a god awful look. She should use some of her new found riches for a stylist. She’s got a great body-and that dress is completely unflattering. The ruffles make her arms look huge (and they’re not).

  37. dee says:

    Im in on the ban. I think its funny how delusional Kate is about her ‘stardom’. I dont think she realizes in her narcissistic mind that its all negative attention she is getting. Just b/c her name is plastered everywhere doesnt mean people really care about her or like her, or that she has any talent other than breeding and selling out her kids. The media plays off the fact that she is the most hated woman on TV so they ram more of her pics and stories down our throats knowing that we will click on the link and comment about our hatred for her.
    I live in PA and just heard on radio this morning that she is trying out for the soap “All my children” so even if this doesnt work out, it wont be the end until people stop clicking on the links.

  38. DoMaJoReMc says:

    re: dee’s comment…..

    OH MY F*CKING WORD! As if the irony (ALL MY CHILDREN) isn’t bad enough. Now she is looking to infiltrate HER soap opera life into the real soap opera.

    Won’t someone PLEASE sit her down and let her know that she is hated by SO many and, more importantly, why. Her diva-like ways are only adding to that hatred.

    I seriously think the Child Welfare Dept. of Pennsylvania needs to get involved with these children and their long-term well-being. For all the KHATE lovers out there, can you please tell me what the attraction to her is? Yes, she is the single mother of 8, big deal. Does that make her more important than me, a (once single) mother of 1? Yes, their father is out of the picture to a point, my son’s is, too. Yes, she has to provide for her kids, so do I. But I will tell you, I am a nice person that treats people with kindness and respect. I also have struggled, but I ALWAYS put my child’s well-being in front of my own. My only treat to myself was having my hair done once a month. And in order to afford it, we agreed to barter for her service. I didn’t expect someone to pick up the tab. And I had NO help whatsoever. But it was my choice to continue with my pregnancy once my son’s dad left me. I knew that it was going to be a long road, but I didn’t ask someone else to pick up the tab because of my decisions.

    While some of you may say that she is just trying to provide for her children…there are just so many reasons that she DOESN’T need to be out there as a celebrity wannabe. She needs to be home with her kids while they need her and while they are still young. If she gets rid of even half her staff and her full-time bodyguard (WTF is THAT all about, anyway?), she would be able to afford a lifestyle that, if she were not so self-centered, she could afford. Those kids need their mother at home with them. They need to have their childhood restored to a life of simplicity and love. I hate KHATE for her lack of nurturing and for the narcissistic way she leads her life.

    All of these comments are my opinion, and I’m sure the KHATE lovers out there will lamb-base me, but if they just look at it objectively, they would see that this woman is a snob, and she feels she is better than anyone else. SHE IS NOT.

    I’m out……….

  39. Leek says:

    I think the most effective way to get a Gosselin ban is if we refuse to comment on the absurdity that is their lives. I’mm all for it! Who’s with me!? Last post on nasty, nasty Kate.

  40. Informer says:

    I wish this c*nt rag would just f*ck off!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. Kate Duckling says:

    She was a total diva and abusive wife on Jon and Kate plus 8, why wouldn’t she be a total diva on DWTS? I considered watching just to see her booted off, but screw ABC for even booking her int he first place!

  42. Susie says:

    The best thing would be seeing TLC stop supporting Kate and trying to make her look”NICE”. I watched the show and I still cannot believe Jon stayed as long as he did! He’s being trashed and he was the one who said enough!

    Seems the only people who like Kate are TLC and a few people with very loose screws. When your own family has nothing good to say about you or shows no support for you there’s a reason especially when your fathers a minister. When I heard Kate would be on DWTS my first comment was she’s no star and the second was I’m not watching that show anymore!

    When I heard what happened with her dance partner was I surprised…NO! That man is sweet and has done wonders with his other partners. I never ever calld a woman a BITCH till I saw Kate in action and I along with just about everyone here just want her gone. She’s no star and for that matter not much of a mother either….go away Kate and take care of the kids or let Jon do it he is a much better parent …….BAN KATE FROM THE PUBLIC!!!
