Kate Gosselin Tell-All Book: NO Legal Action Against Robert Hoffman – Fears The Truth Coming Out?

Kate Gosselin Tell-All Book: NO Legal Action Against Robert Hoffman - Fears The Truth Coming Out?

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.

What do you guys think? Do you agree that Kate is afraid of taking legal action? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    I will only say this, I watched the show when it was Jon and Kate plus eight I saw the bullying and mental abuse that Jon suffered at the hands of this women. It was and always will be all about Kate, she can fool some people, but she can’t fool everyone, her whole family and friends can’t be wrong. She says she does’ care what people think of her, we’ll that is quite evident, when she really no longer needed a full time body guard, she gave him another title to keep him close to her, I think the truth will eventually come out and it probably won’t be pretty.

      Great comment and observation!

    I am totally convinced that in a few short years one or more of these kids will be writing a “Mommy dearest” book. I really think Kate is not a very nice person.

    Definitely agree that Kate is afraid to take legal action because she’s been so ignorant on how the legal process works. It’s not just going after Hoffman and airing out his dirty laundry – hers would be under scrutiny too. When she found out that’s what it was, she dropped the first lawsuit and won’t be pursuing anymore. What an idiot.

    Kate only took this to court the first time b/c BullyVille convinced her too.
    Hence, now Bullyville is suspended.
    She made it much worse. If you at celeb dirty laundry would like un watermarked court docs, I have them. I also have a copy of the lawsuit on my site under the court documents section, not one time did Kate call Robert Hoffman a liar – interesting.

      Who’s BullyVille?

    She can’t possibly fear the wooden spoon thing or anything else in this blog will come out because everyone already knows it. Sorry, nothing new here. Must be a slow blog day when you’re blogging about her fearing leaks of info that everyone already knows. I know it’s all about clicks, but come on. You can do better.

    This witch will be paying the piper in a few short years. Not only will one (or more) of the kids write a tell-all, but when all of those kids become teenagers…can you imagine having 8 teens living under one roof?!?! I also think that Kate has treated poor Collin so badly that he may stab her in her sleep when he gets older. She is always crying about how hard it is parenting 8 kids. Bitch, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

    I think the wooden spoon is pertinent because in one of her journals she admits to beating Collin so badly one day when he was just a toddler that it even scared Kate. She had to pray that she wouldn’t badly hurt the kids. Evidently, the beating he took was a bad one.
    I’m not against spanking, per se, but when you spank a child in the heat of the moment, things can get out of hand real quick. And I’m pretty sure Kate has an explosive temper.

    You don’t have to buy it. I’m renting it for free on my kindle.
