You gotta admire Kate Gosselin, the woman’s got hustle. Even though both critics and the public have trashed her cookbook ‘Love Is In The Mix‘, she’s refusing to give up – or maybe she’s under contract. Either way, she’s still promoting the book through her Twitter, even though it’s been months since the book’s been out.
The other day, she tweeted about Thanksgiving and preparing an entire recipe for the meal by using her cookbook. She wrote, “It’s been a long yummy day here..I cooked the complete menu from #LoveIsInTheMix of course! Now we’re all stuffed..instead of the turkey!”
Apparently, her kids loved the meal, but of course Kate would say that. I mean, nobody ever said she was a terrible cook, just that her cookbook was terrible and uninspired – which it absolutely was. I mean, it clearly ripped off recipes from other books, and it was so obvious that practically every customer noticed it. What I want to know is – why would these people even buy her cookbook in the first place? It’s not like Kate is especially known for her cooking abilities – she didn’t get famous off Master Chef, she got famous of a reality show off her husband and children. Cooking abilities aren’t paramount or even slightly important with that sort of thing, so it really seemed like her cookbook was a last ditch resort to make some money.
Well, it’s too late now. She can pimp the book out all she wants via Twitter, but the sales continue to plummet as we speak. Maybe a dating book next time? Although that probably has even less of a chance of succeeding.
What do you guys think? Do you admire Kate’s hustle, or do you think it’s just pathetic? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
