Kate Gosselin‘s cookbook failed, so what’s her next move? Well, if she’s actually serious about trying to get another reality show, she’ll need to prove to network executives that she still has fans.
You know, it’s interesting – I think the number of Twitter followers you have is becoming increasingly more irrelevant, especially as the celebrities prove that the number doesn’t matter. Look at Kate – she has over a 150,000 Twitter followers [probably all from her reality show days], and barely any of them bought her cookbook. So for those who measure reality stars’ popularity through social media, it’s probably not the best idea to continue.
Anyway, Kate’s already promoted her book through every traditional channel, so the only thing that’s left now is Twitter. She’s already prone to bragging about her children on her Twitter feed, but she’s gone to Defcon 5 in the days since her book came out. She’s been constantly tweeting, both about the book and anything else that will get her some publicity. Her latest tweet compared her children to a bunch of ducks, as she tweeted a picture of some cute baby ducks, with the caption, “GM! I had 2 show u this photo! (Thx @SandieBellz) It’s my LIFE and I love it! Got all my ducks (Gosselins) in a row!pic.twitter.com/BCAcz1fIx1”.
Tryhard and desperate, or cute? She’s obviously trying to remain ‘relatable’ so she doesn’t lose her Twitter following, but she’s also trying to appeal to the mom demographic at the same time. That’s pretty much the only demographic that actively follows her in the media anyway, and they’re the only ones who would actually go out and buy a cookbook by her.
What do you guys think? Do you think Kate should take a break from Twitter and try to get a traditional job? Let us know in the comments.
