Kate Gosselin has had a lot on her plate the last couple of months, so you almost can’t blame her for becoming a trainwreck. In fact, I’m very surprised that it’s taken this long to happen. According to the latest cover issue of In Touch Weekly, Kate is ‘falling apart’. The headline is accompanied by a picture of Kate looking extremely gaunt and frail, with severe dark circles and many deep wrinkles.
So what happened? What caused Kate, who was seen in public just last week, to fall apart? To be fair, when we saw her last week on Bethenny Frankel‘s talk show, she was fully and professional made up and dressed. Without that help, she might have looked just as terrible as she looks on the cover of In Touch.
Obviously, the reasonable conclusion is that Kate is dealing with a lot of financial stress, most specifically from her lawsuit against ex-husband Jon Gosselin as well as her own financial security dwindling. She’s probably shilling her new cookbook so hard because it’s her last real chance at a proper salary, even though she made millions with her reality show. Kate is still dodgy about exactly where all that money went, but then you look at her face and it’s not so hard to deduce. Plastic surgery is expensive and the amount that Kate has received would not have come cheap.
Obviously, Kate’s kids are also growing up, and Jon is pretty useless when it comes to financial support. He can barely afford to pay child support, forget helping the kids through school and college. If this cookbook thing doesn’t work out, there’s no way Kate will ever get another reality show, no matter how hard she pimps her kids. If that happens, then she’s… well, screwed.
