Under Construction

To those of you who think Kate needs to go back to her nursing job - I beg to differ. Nurses work 12 hour shifts several days a week, so that means that Kate would have to pay baby sitters for that amount of time. While nurses make a lot of money, there is no way it is cost effective for her to go back to her nursing job to support those kids. While I'm not a Kate lover or a huge fan, I don't begrudge her writing books or making appearances that pay more than the average nursing job. She is also able to spend more time with her kids than she would if she were hold up in a doctor's office or hospital working her shift. I see photos all the time of Kate and all the kids. I don't recall ever seeing a pic of Jon lately with all 8 kids in tow.

what planet are you on
you don't think that taking care of 8 kids/meals/laundry/housework/monitering homework/dentist appointments/doctors/school/barbers/birthday parties of school friends/PTA meetings/grocery shopping etc. count as work???

you may not be a fan of Kates but anyone will tell you that raising kids is definitely work...
24/7 work with no overtime pay/benefits/coffee breaks/no holidays off--very few job perks

Anyone who thinks Kate is taking care of those kids on her own is nuts. Jon gets them on weekends and she has nannies out the nostrils. Good for Jon working a regular job and showing his kids that they don't have to support themselves. Kate uses her kids to pay the bills. Sickening.

Way to go Jon! The sheeple are obsessed with Kate because they are Kate wannabees. They obviously never watched the shows. Jon was always the hands on parent. He bathed, dressed, fed and played with the kids while Kate ordered him around. Even Mady called her the "queen bee" as she barked orders in her plastic chair. Kate is still begging her sheeple to keep watching her show because she has to beautify herself and go on expensive vacations. She is a selfish woman who can't make it on her own because she has no talent. Get off your lazy .... Kate and get a job.

#82 Lisa -- you're so wrong. Not all nurses work 12 hour shifts. Many (if not most) work 8 hour shifts, just like the majority of us working grunts do. My mom worked 7 to 3:30 at the local hospital the entire time I was growing up.

Khate could get a job as a school nurse. She would have the same holidays and days off school that her kids have off. She could work as a camp nurse and spend time with her kids while she's working.

Face it. K-hate has been too busy getting extensions, selling her stories, having plastic surgery and schtooking her bodyguard to even think about getting a job. She believes in her narcissistic little peabrain that she's a star who's above working for a living. I hope after the kids grow up she loses everything and ends up living in an orange crate on the side of the road.

*******************
laundry and housework - done by nannies
monitoring homework - they dont need it, and when they do, they go to a nanny
dentist/dr appts - umm that happens like once every few months - thats not a big deal
school - half the time the nanny takes them to and from the bus DUH
bday parties of school friends - the kids never attend, unless they are under the care of their father. We hvae all received many RSVP's from the gosselin family , it's always a no when it's from Kate, and a yes from Jon
pta meetings - r u effin kidding me?
so basically he is what she does: Grocery shopping, and meals.. and she has a live in nanny. everyone in this area knows that! NICE TRY THO!!!!

oh and we almost forgot, weekly nails, monthly hair, and tanning 3 times a week. what a hard life. oh and she has time to go running. she is def putting herself first!

Really? A School Nurse?! THAT'S A GOOD ONE! Let's see...in my part of the country that pays about $35,000 annually. Do you really think supporting 8 kids on a $35,000.00 annual salary is easy or more desirable to her or anyone else?

Like I said, I'm not a huge fan of Kate, and in fact I think she treated Jon like crap most of the time and maybe it wasn't a good idea to do the show, but she can't un-ring that bell. What's done is done - and now she is only doing special shows, not one every week like in the past. She has also stated that plenty of money has been put away for each child for a college fund and more.

The Duggars have a show also. I don't see anyone slamming them for "pimping" there kids like they slam Jon and Kate. People hate Kate because she can be such a bitch, and then they want to find every reason they can to criticize her. I betcha if polled 90% people here (if they spoke truthfully) would opt for doing a TLC show than going back and working a nursing job.
