Do you feel sorry for Kate Gosselin yet? She has survived a lousy marriage, several failed reality shows and then there was that horrendous stint on Dancing with the Stars. She seems to have realized that her reality television days are behind her and perhaps the best way to even slightly repair her reputation is to now begin to seem relatable, almost girl-next-door-like!
Kate has started a very normal mommy blog over at The Stir where she is trying to fit in rather than bring a hailstorm of negative publicity in the door with her. She has discussed moving, getting older and kids science projects. Now she wants the world to know that she has been a victim of bullying ever since stepping into the public eye.
Didn’t we already kind of know this? I mean a lot of the negative press borders on bullying and that press comes from the things that Kate herself has said and done. If you remember back a few years when she filmed her reality show with now ex-husband Jon, she was accused of being a horrible bully to him! Kate was nasty and mean all the time in their joint interview footage. Part of the public backlash at first came because of Kate’s treatment of Jon. She was labeled the bully but seems to have forgotten that while trying to play victim here.
I know Kate’s aim here is for people to identify with her experiences and at one time or another in our lives most of us have been bullied, so we get it. But Kate my dear, people in glass houses really shouldn’t throw stones unless they want a whirlwind of negative comments to follow!
Should Kate even broach the subject of bullying and expect people to have short term memory? Do you think she was originally a bully to her ex husband? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
