Kate Gosselin is mad that people are writing about her, although I’d wager to say that she’s secretly thrilled that people still care about her at all. As we’ve reported in the past, a tell-all book about Kate has been in the works for the past few years, even though Kate’s tried to get it shut down numerous times. And author Robert Hoffman‘s finally releasing the book, titled, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, The Rise and Fall of a Reality TV Queen.
And this time, sources say that Kate will NOT be taking legal action. Honestly, I’m surprised her intimidation and threats worked for so long, especially as it’s always been clear that she wasn’t planning on taking legal action. How can she, when most of what’s in the book is true? She can’t sue for libel, because Hoffman isn’t lying. She can’t say that he got this information illegally, because most of it was obtained through her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin.
If she does take legal action, then there’s a high chance that the case will head to court. And if they go to court, Kate’s dirty secrets will come spilling out. In fact, things that aren’t even related to the book are likely to come out, and then proceed to leak to the press. Kate’s not going to risk the whole world finding out that she used to hit her children with a wooden spoon or abuse her pets. She won’t take the chance that the added publicity will bring her more infamy, even if it means that she gives up being the center of attention for a few weeks.
