Kate Cries

I Can't Pay My Bills!

10/5/2009 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Gosselins continued their messy break-up in the media today -- with Kate fighting back the waterworks while claiming she can't afford to pay her bills.

Kate came out swinging on "Today" this morning, slamming Jon for clearing $230,000 out of the couple's joint bank account: "You've left your children and their mother unable to pay for the roof over their head. It's unacceptable."

As for Jon's claim the children don't want to do the show anymore, Kate says there was "wailing and sobbing" when she broke the news to 'em that filming has halted.

As TMZ previously reported, Kate's lawyers are going to court today to demand the return of the cash and a contempt citation against Jon. Stay tuned ...

I am so over these two! Enough is enough.
They both ruined the show and the rest of their lives.
They reached the top and its all down hill from here!

TLC please take this show off the air, I am sick of the both of them. If the show goes away, hopefully they will both go away. I saw a program once on the Discovery channel about a family who takes in handicapped children and cares for them. Why not feature a family like this is more deserving of all the money that Jon and Kate make.

Why don't they just make a living like the rest of have to do.

For those of you who say we should leave Kate alone because TV is the way for her to support her kids:

There are tons of large families in the world. Are you telling me the only way any of them could support themselves is to find a TV show for the mom to star in? Is that the only option? That is ridiculous.

Getting pregnant to trick a guy into marriage is disgusting. Leveraging your 8 small children to trick your way into a TV contract is even worse.

The kids should be taken away from Kate the Scammer.

Kate, why don't you let your family help out with the kids since you're in such a bind? Oh, that's right, you want nothing to do with your parents because their church didn't donate brand-new, matching everything to your nursery. What kind of woman would turn down that kind of support from her community? A greedy, materialistic one. Hey, maybe you can get your brother to help? No, you pushed him away too so that you could get more $$$ from TLC. Funny, if Jon's the bad guy why does he have the support of all of his family members, who are a big part in the kids' lives. You won't have anything to do with your family because of your greed, therefore depriving your kids (once again) of something money can't buy-FAMILY.

To those specific FEW people who support Jon & Kate.....
It's your right and freedom of speech to share your positive words of wisdom. However, we IDIOTS (as you so kindly call us) don't agree!!

This JOKE of a reality couple MAKES A GOOD CHUNK OF THEIR LIVING BY: Having a "ghost writer" write books then Kate being very rude at every paid signing & presentation(CAN YOU SAY, "UNDESERVING DIVA?"), Lying, cheating, Spending oodles on condos, other properties, luxury cars & toys they probably won't be able to afford, the list goes on and on and on. Yes, this nightmare of a couple has turned their reality trash into treasure and have made plenty of money to provide a nice life for their children but now, at the expense of their CHILDREN.

You couldn't possibly be parents yourselves or you'd be IDIOTS for supporting them and their continued behavior as they work their "REAL" jobs by exploiting their trainwreck of a family.
I guess Kate or Jon could become prostitutes--that's a real job too. : - )

Have they given any thought that one day this show won't go on regardless of what they want? Why should parents of multiples expect the viewing public to be their bread and butter? This show has been on a long time and quite honestly, it was getting pretty boring before all this happened. Grow up Jon and Kate. Maybe you shouldn't have gotten such a glorious house and been smarter with your money.

Memo to Kate: Join the real world and get a real job to support your kids or sign up for Obama's stimulus plan... haha =)

Fairly Clear    

It's funny how everyone wants to see somebody elses life that's more screwed up than their own. If that's what gets you off this made for TV train wreck is right in your wheelhouse. It has everything the poor little jilted nagging house frau just tying to get by with the aid of MS-NBC, book publishers or anyone who will listen and the knucklehead philandering soon to be dead beat father. This entire spectacle should be legally mandatory watching for anyone who even dreams about before opening their families lives up for the cameras. When all the interest dies out, law suits settled and the networks have moved on which they will once the ratings tank that's when the stark reality will set in you have a house full of kids that still to be cared for and you have no clue of how to provide care for them. Anyone who has seen any of these family reality shows knows how this will end up like the Osborn's or Hogans leaving a family deeply divided, possible marital discord, resentment flowing like a river, possible substance abuse problems. The kids are the one's who always seem to pay the price in these shows and this one will be no different.

Can't any of you people hear or read - she said she put the money back when they told her to and now the sleezebag Jon took that plus everything else. Apparently she was right and had plenty of reason to worry. How can he do that to the kids - Why should he care - he has been that way from the beginning. That's why Kate paid the bills and was in charge of the money. I've actually seen posts that where cheering him on. These people apparently are deadbeat dads too.

She has her nerve to say that the kids were crying and screetching that the filming crew left. Well nice going Katezilla you just proved to yourself what the rest of us already knew. YOU SOLD YOUR KIDS OUT for fame and fortune. HOW DARE YOU go on national TV and bitch about this. We are in the worst economic downfall ever and you have the balls to bitch about 200 grand which you have a ton of other accounts all over the place. YOUR a horrible hateful narcissist. DO us all a favor and GO AWAY!!!!!!

Kate did the right thing; the monster has to be revealed for what he is, a douche on the loose. He is a despicable human being and I hope he ends up in contempt and goes to jail. His lawyer states he is interested in "family values", the only value he and the lawyer care about is the value of his bank account. He is in serious need of psychiatric help. The money that she supposedly took out was to set up college funds for the kids not money for herself.

Someone hit the nail on the head when they posted about how Kate had separate accounts...Jon has already had to hunt down $80K Kate had stashed, and IMHO is simply trying to account for all of the finances so they may be divided equally...Kate has had how many plastic surgeries?...Enough to where Jon became quite close to Kate's surgeons daughter...Whose money paid for that?...
Folks can feel any way they wish towards Jon in this situation, but it's clearly Kate who's doing the scheming and conning here...She's attempting to manipulate the situation to suit her needs, as she's done every other time...
BTW, Kate will be damned lucky if she ever finds work in the medical field again since she falsified her credentials to get hired as a nurse in the first place...Stellar example to set for eight kids...
While Jon might not be a saint, we all have to remember Kate's part in this fiasco as well...Whining to every media outlet that will hear her seems to be standard operating procedure for Kate these days, and throw in bitter old hags like the ones on "The View" and of course Jon will be vilified...Frankly, I'm surprised they haven't demanded his balls yet...The ones Kate wore so proudly throughout their marriage, but can't seem to carry now that she's been called out for what she really is...Kind of hard holding onto a pair when your hands are busy hiding money...

Can someone please tell me how these two people have become celebrities? This is so frigging ridiculous. Only in this country can someone have sextuplets (not even the first set ever born) and become a celebrity. There isn't any talent, and yet, these people are cashing in on baby making. I used to like this show when Jon and Kate were humble everyday people trying to make ends meet, but they more money and publicity they have received, the more out of touch they have become. This is crazy. I have not watched this show since last season, and I have no plans to ever watch it again. It is disgusting. Kate, I am sorry Jon took all your money and wants the show cancelled, but I guess now you will have to go back to work nursing like other people with eight kids do to support their children. thank God for your college degree, and Jon, grow up and stop living off of your children's money. What is it you do? How about you get a real job and find an identity of your own. Maybe you will come out of your mid-life crises. Sometimes people have to lose everything before they come back to reality. I feel very badly for these children because they didn't ask for any of this.
