My Final Advice to Kate Gosselin

posted by Kris Rasmussen

A few weeks ago fellow blogger Ellen wrote a brilliant , poetic “Dear Jon” letter to Jon Gosselin informing him of her thoughts on his recent shenanigans and self-promotion. So with the return of “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ last Monday on TLC-where we were treated to life with the Gosselins in their post-break up world- I thought I would take my turn and give my final- and I do mean final- advice to Kate Gosselin. Yes, I am aware she hasn’t exactly asked for it.
Dear Kate:
I admit I have never been your biggest fan or even a faithful follower of you and your family over the years. Still, I have never been one of those naysayers who have made fun of your plastic surgery or your haircut, either. I also realize you were perhaps not exactly married to Prince Charming, but rather you were married to Peter Pan instead. I don’t even believe those rumors he’s mudslinging about how you quit the marriage first and he was the one who wanted counseling. But as you move forward into the single parent life with your new “can do” attitude, let me make a few helpful suggestions.


First of all, you don’t need to do any more remodeling. I know – surprise- some company wanted product placement, but it just makes you look greedier than you already do .You’ve lived in this new mansion of yours for something like a year or two? You didn’t need to redo an entire kitchen to invent an excuse to get away from Jon and go on yet another trip with the kids.
I am, however, glad to read you might bereconsidering the condo you purchased right down the street from your bodyguard. You know, the one you said you were absolutely not having an affair with. Perhaps not the best idea if you are really trying to portray yourself as taking the higher road in this divorce. Remember, in real estate, it’s all about location, location, location.
Finally, if you are truly interested in doing what is best for your kids, don’t make them your new co-hosts. I winced when I watched Monday night’s episodes with your children being perched on a couch for a quick interview and I flinched when they were talking to the cameras to help narrate the show. As you have so wisely pointed out, the kids did not ask for this divorce. I wonder, did they really ask for this new, expanded role on the TV show?
I know all of this advice seems a little harsh, Kate, but it’s only because I have a feeling that many in America are going to join me in a vow to stop watching your show, you know, for the sake of the kids.

    The only thing we know about these people is what the media tells us. And of course, the media likes to hype things up. No one has any right to judge them or anyone else for that matter.

  • Andrea

    And I am sure they don’t want your advice.

    I enjoyed your advice to Kate. Just sad she might not read it but who knows. I agree with it also. I never followed much after the first year and I go by alot of hearsay and what I see like on Entertainment Tonight. I’m not even gonna give OctoMom a try, I feel sorry for those 14 kids already.

  • Kris R

    Unsolicited, judgemental “advice” that is blatantly passive aggressive…I wonder what we would find out about you if we put a camera in your house. You seem to enjoy kicking someon when they are down. Usually this is the out growth of resentment and an inability to “fix” our own lives…so we work on telling other people what they should think, feel and do…arrogance and mean spirited.

    dearest kate, i watch you and your family weekly. my grandson and i both love you and your kids and jon. you’ll make it!!! my husband and i are rasing jacob and endjoy every minute. some days are better than others, i can only think how your days go. yes some days will be hard just look into the eyes of your babys to get your streight, you’ll make it. one day jon will grow up. then he will be able to put his kids first. kate you’ll do the right thing for you and your kids. enjoy life togother… friends in our hearts,

    It’s apparent to me that everyone that commented on this blog are fan’s of the show and only want it to continue for their own entertainment. Yes, they will make it through this, but must it be played out on tv? I think they (Kate&Jon) should pray to their GOD that the demon called Hollywood would release from the hell that they are suffering here on this earth. I watched the show and have since the beginning, and it saddens me to see the pain and hurt that Jon used to suffer when being humilitate on tv. As a woman Kate should have never spoken to him the way that she did on occasions. Maybe it amuses the fans because this is the behavior being exihibited in your homes. If so you need counseling as bad as the Gosselin’s do. Why does everyone seem to think that Dr. Phil is the answer? Who made him the head Pschologist/Psychiatrist? There are plenty other counselor’s that are not interested in exploiting them even more (for your viewing pleasure) who are far highly welled qualified to counsel and heal this union (husband,wife,children). Get a life people.

    This is all so sad. I don’t watch the show, I did in the beginning. When all of this break up started, I blamed Kate (that’s why I didn’t watch the show…couldn’t stand her). But, after reading in the tabloids about Jon’s exploits and dating life…and he said he was excited about his new life! I’m on Kate’s side now! Who’s home with the kids? Who takes the kids on trips? Who’s there for the kids? It sure ain’t Jon!! Sure, one day he’ll wake up and see what he’s done to his kids…only then it’ll be too late…the kids know who’s with them and who’s taking care of them…it ain’t Daddy.
    And what’s the deal with Dr. Phil??? He’s a fake that’s also stuck on himself! Jon doesn’t want counseling…he wants to play!
