Now that Kate Gosselin‘s cookbook has failed so drastically, you have to wonder what her next step will be. It’s been several years since her reality show went off the air, and apart from her Twitter followers, she has yet to prove that she has a passionate fan base.
Well, first of all, the idea of a reality star having a ‘fan base’ is odd to begin with – the reason their shows do well is because people are weirdly fascinated by the idiotic and famewhorey lifestyle that reality stars live, and it’s a way to observe and laugh at them without being directly involved. It’s voyeurism at its crappiest.
Kate should have realized that nobody would buy her book, considering she’s not a professional cook nor is she in any way qualified to discuss cooking recipes. But since the failure of her cookbook, there have been rumors that Kate’s been trying for a dating reality show, despite the fact that she pretty much has a non-existent dating life.
Think about it – Kate tweets like her life depends on it, and she can hardly stand to stay away from the spotlight for more than a couple of weeks at a time. If she had a boyfriend, you think we wouldn’t have heard about it? And if she can’t get a boyfriend in relative privacy, then how is she going to manage on a reality show?
Of course, that’s all considering the idea that she’s even offered her own reality show. With the failure of her recent endeavors, I don’t think any network or executive would be willing to bet on her. Kate’s time in the spotlight is over, and there’s not much she can do to bring it back. She promoted her cookbook like her life depended on it, and see how abysmally it did in sales. Why would anyone take a financial risk on a has-been reality star with eight children and a non-existent private life?
