I don’t know anything about Kate Gosselin except the very little bits of herself that she eagerly puts on television for public consumption, and after swallowing her bits without chewing for flavor, I cannot understand the essence of why she is on television and why she has a fan base. I’ve watched her repeatedly degrade her children and her former husband on television. I have watched her get pushed and dragged through dance routines on “Dancing with the Stars” as if she were a household cleaning appliance and not a dancer. Is that Kate Gosselin below or the Dyson Ball vacuum?
In every instance, Kate Gosselin has come across as wholly disinterested, rather disengaged, and a bit cruel.
Why is she a reality television star?
Do people flock to watch her because he is such a wretched person and, in her dim light, they feel lighter about their own dismal lives?
Kate Gosselin certainly doesn’t inspire or teach anything positive. She a blah-monger of the highest degree and for that reason alone I do not understand her popularity.
If people like Kate Gosselin are celebrities presented for imitation — we’re all in deep trouble — but if she is instead a warning against something we should never become or hope to admire, then I can begin to understand her car-wreck of a life as a mother and a dancing vacuum: “Don’t Be Like Kate!” is the warning we all must heed and adhere to as the temptation to fight back with spite tempts us just as it fêted her.
