There have been so many reasons NOT to like Kate Gosselin over the years that it’s hard to remember them all. The most recent accusations against the former reality show diva give a completely different look at Kate’s ability to cope with all of those kids. Until now she just appeared to be completely self-absorbed and those kids were her tool to use to crawl into the public spotlight now and then. According to Robert Hoffman, a reporter who got his hands on Kate’s secret journals, when the TV cameras weren’t rolling Kate was abusing those kids.
Her wooden spoon became known as “the spanker” and there were numerous entries about using it on even two year old babies. There were also detailed accounts of literally throwing babies into cribs and dragging them by their hair. Of course with such horrific allegations the press was going to run straight to Kate’s ex, Jon Gosselin for a statement of some kind. As it turns out, Jon used Kate’s discipline methods against her while going through that ugly divorce. According to RadarOnline,
“Jon knew that Kate was using that wooden spoon with the kids and hated it. There was more than one instance where he thought she used it too aggressively. “When their marriage was crumbling and they weren’t on good terms, they were both using whatever they could against each other, and the spoon and Kate’s methods of discipline were good ammo for Jon.”
Well, it looks like once again evil Kate has found a way to garner publicity for herself through her children! She has come under fire before and usually can find a loophole to crawl through to make herself look a bit better, at least in her few fans’ minds. I don’t see a way out of this one though. In her own words she looks like an abusive woman that shouldn’t have children in her care. Do you think Kate will even try to defend herself against these claims or stay silent? Would you like to see Kate Gosselin’s wooden spoon made illegal? Tell us your thoughts below!
