Is Kate Gosselin an Evil, Evil Person?

If you want to go ahead and believe a new book being written about Kate Gosselin, which pretty much eviscerates her for being a piss-poor parent (which we already knew, but apparently some random author thought it was high time to bring out those demons again and profit from them). The book is called ‘Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World’, and it’s all about what a fake bitch Kate Gosselin is—oh, and what a bad parent she is, too. What it covers extensively, however, is the fact that she used excessive spanking techniques on children as young as two years old—or, if you really want to get down to brass tacks, twenty-four months old. Saying it that way makes it sound even worse (if that’s possible), and when you hear what Kate allegedly used to “discipline” her children, you’re going to see all sorts of red.

From Radar Online:

“She was beating 2-year-old babies in diapers,” reporter Robert Hoffman, who claims he found secret journals that Kate used to help her write her books, Multiple Bles8ings and EightLittle Faces.

According to Hoffman, the former Kate Plus 8 star kept detailed notes on her computer about using a wooden spoon to hit her children, yanking them around by their hair, and punishing them for transgressions as minor as trying to climb out of a crib or not adjusting to potty training quickly enough.

“I don’t judge somebody for spanking, but what Kate wrote in her journal is just absolute violence …”

He adds that Kate’s lawyers attempted to block his forthcoming book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World.

Kate’s own words may indict her, claims Hoffman. One example: When three of her children helped themselves to M&Ms without permission, she allegedly wrote, “I really, really lost it! I pulled Collin up by the hair, and I spanked them so hard!”

Kate, 37, also utilizes a wooden spoon, which she calls The Spanker, claims Hoffman.

“She uses that Spanker on a daily basis for anything and everything. The spanking entries are endless,” he alleges.

Kate herself often worried about her excessive physicality, allegedly writing in the diary that she told her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, that she “felt like I may hurt his children,” and that she preferred it when the kids were “out of her sight” whenever she flew off the handle, because then she knew “that they are safe.”

In another frightening entry, claims Hoffman, Kate wrote that she was so incensed after Collin threw a tantrum, “I sent him to his crib and whipped him into it very hard…I never felt that I may really seriously injure a child, but today was that day.”

So I seriously hope—for the sake of humanity—that these allegations turn out to be untrue. I’ll have my opinion of Kate Gosselin set to “f-ck off” no matter what the outcome is, because I think she’s a conniving, underhanded bitch who thinks nothing of stepping all over people (her own children included) in order to get another five minutes of fame, but this? Hitting toddlers with objects? Hitting toddlers, period? It’s never right, it’s always wrong, and it tells the young, impressionable child that violence is the means through which to get your point across. Great way to raise a healthy, well-adjusted child.

In any case, Kate Gosselin is still a piece of shit, and I suppose that’t not exactly news, now, is it?

  • I’m not defending Kate at all, and it definitely sounds like her punishment methods were excessive and dangerous. But listen, I got spanked a few times (very few – I can count them on one hand!) when I was a kid (not when I was two years old, but still), and a) it worked as a disciplinary measure and b) I did not grow up thinking that violence is the way to solve things. It was a way for my parents to get my attention the few times I literally WOULD NOT respond to any other means (and they didn’t hit me very hard). I’m not saying that I’m going to use it on my children or anything, I’m just saying that I don’t think it’s the worst thing in the world, if done sparingly.

    • I get what you’re saying, and agree that pretty much everything Kate does is excessive and over-the-top, which is why this wouldn’t surprise me at all, but I just don’t think anyone should be laying their hands on anyone, whether it’s parent-child, child-child, peer-peer, etc., and it all starts at home.

    • How can you people know if all of this is true? You’re pretty dumb if you believe everything someone claims just like that.

      • Conversely, you would be pretty stupid to dismiss anything allegedly done by this psycho without at least checking it out first…”Contempt prior to investigation never fails to hold a person in everlasting ignorance” – Herbert Spencer

  • I’m not anti-spanking and wouldn’t clutch my pearls at the sight of a parent swatting the ass of a toddler when they’re being a brat but that said, I think spanking is less of a “disciplinary technique” and more of a “I’m so pissed off right now and I’m going to release that anger by hitting something”. Case in point, hitting a kid with a wooden spoon? Giving it a NAME so you can use it as a threat and make your children fearful? That has nothing to do with disciplining your kid, that has to do with that cunt having no control over her anger and taking it out on little ones.

  • I don’t care how this book affects either parent(but why would anybody sane or not, write down in a journal bad stuff they do and let someone else read it?)the kids are now at an age where classmates are going to taunt them about all this crap they read on the internet and see in the tabloids. This writer is just out to make a buck. Why make the kids suffer anymore, they’ve paid their dues.

    • Just give me the wooden spoon and let me have at Kate so I can give her a taste of her own medicine. I cannot tolerate any kind of spanking of toddlers how sad and how cruel this women should be put away for good!!

  • notfooledhere where is your proof or source or any shred of evidence that this is the case, nobody writes a hater book so they can give all the proceeds to a local shelter that is the stupidest comment on this page, anyone like joyce who says something retarded like threatening violence against her is just another low IQ uneducated hick displaying their primitive uncivilized attitude, you really think those kids are going to grow up normal and that she is not going to suffer any type of backlash from them when they are adults and shes on old lady ? well your a fucking idiot like 99% of people posting on this page.
    you all should be lined up with her and executed your all just as much a waste of life as she is, fuck off and die cunts…. in a flaming wreckage preferably.
