I have such mixed feelings on Kate Gosselin. As a blanket feeling, I can’t respect a woman who sought unnecessary fertility treatment and then spends the rest of her life acting put upon when all the monkeying around resulted in sextuplets. You are in a hell of your own making bitch. Don’t complain when you get what you asked for.The fame, the money, it has clearly gone to her head in the form of extensions – Kate’s serving us county fair Pennsylvania pageant hair in lieu of her former hedgehog head. Her body is tight, and her forehead is even tighter. She’s improved components of her appearance over the years, but they apparently haven’t developed a plastic surgery to correct bitchface because that is her countenance all day long.Her mothering lacks warmth. She yells. She doesn’t hug. She doesn’t smile. She humiliates. She lacks compassion. She’s a white-knuckle parent trying to control her children like a disciplined child army. Did you see how she Mommie Dearest-ed Mady? She refused to let Mady win the stupid game, but Kate was underhandedly nice enough to invite Mady’s best friend Jenna as a surprise. I guess Cara didn’t have any friends to include?All that said, Kate gets a few things right. The Gosselin kids complete chores and therefore understand responsibility and hard work. Kate has instilled a sense of team work and camaraderie in her kids that will serve them throughout their lives long after they have escaped her overly-controlling clutches. Kate creates structure. Kate sets limits. Kate tries to provide fun for her kids. It’s just that she’s such a miserable bitch she even ruins the good times.The kids appear intelligent, well-spoken, polite, and scared. Mady’s still the thorn in her mother’s side and I can’t wait to read her inevitable tell-all. It’s just a matter of time before Collin grows taller than Kate, looks down at her and says “shut the fuck up Mom.” Can the cameras please capture that developmental milestone?For this TLC special, Kate wants to go big for the sextuplet’s tenth birthday. Kate wants a carnival theme. Too bad she’s not listening to what the kids want. Clearly, what these kids want is to feel like an only child for one day. Only children get to be alone with their parents. Only children get to do what they want to do without compromise. The greatest gift she could give those kids on their birthday is time away from their siblings.On each of the six days proceeding the birthday, take one kid out each day. On the seventh day, have a family party. Some of you are saying – what are you going to do with the other kids when you are out with that one kid? No doubt the Gosselins employ nannies. Cooperate with Jon for the good of the kids. Make it work. For someone who considers herself an organizational marvel, a day focused on one child can’t be any harder than planning an elaborate backyard carnival that’s more for the network than it is for the kids.
