Kate Gosselin has probably been working harder than she ever has in her entire life to promote her ridiculous cookbook, but it hasn’t been working out too well for her. According to current sales information, the book [titled 'Love Is In The Mix'] is at #3,105 on the Amazon Bestseller List, and the reviews for the book are horrible across the board.
The negative reviews include complaints about use of processed food, unhealthy recipes, unoriginal recipes or recipes copied from the Internet, and incorrect matching descriptions or photos for food. None of the reviews were particularly kind, but some of the more negative ones said things like, “Don’t waste your money on this book. Recipes using canned soup that is very high in sodium, and box mixes is a joke. Any doctor that read this book would give several thumbs down. Kate is just trying to make money by writing this book because she knows that there is nothing more she can do. Her show is over, and she needs to get a real job to support her 8 children.”
The review continues in that vein, and it looks like the general audiences aren’t warming to it either, especially if the sales are any indication.
What will Kate do now? What are her options? I’m sure she was using this cookbook as a way to set up her eventual return to reality television, but if she can’t even sell a cookbook, how will she sell a television show? If anything, the dismal performance of this book will probably hurt her long-term goals instead of help them.
