kate gosselin Stepford Wife Kate Gosselin Finds Old Kate Gosselin ‘Cringeworthy’

The shiny new, semi-emotionless, Stepford Wife Kate Gosselin finds the old Kate Gosselin ‘cringeworthy.’

In tonight’s episode of Kate Plus 8, the 40-year-old watches footage of herself parenting her then-toddler sextuplets and slightly older twin girls, and gives advice to her old self—you can watch sneak peek footage right here on Popdust.

KateGosselin Goes On A Blind Date—Takes All Her Baggage Along With Her

Before she became Stepford Wife Kate Gosselin, with the frozen face and a tight leash on her feelings and emotions, the old Kate Gosselin wasn’t one to hold back—just the slightest transgression could tip her over-the-edge and bring out her inner screaming harpy.

And, quite frankly, in Kate’s defense, you can hardly blame her—even though she was still married to now ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, at the time, as anyone who watched Jon & Kate Plus 8, knows, the vast majority of parenting fell firmly on her shoulders day-in-day-out.

Kate Gosselin Turns Four-Oh—Wants Y’All To Know She’s Single And VERY Happy

It’s tough enough parenting one small child pretty much on your own—so, try and times that by eight. It’s enough to make your head spin—as Kate’s did, figuratively, very regularly.

Case in point—Doorknob-gate

One of the old clips Gosselin watches is about her trying to get to the bottom of which of the kids removed a doorknob. The kids, being kids, refuse to own up to who’s responsible for the “property destruction” and as Kate’s frustration grows, so does the level of her voice.

She explains:

I am clearly fit to be tied. Ooh. My voice sounds like it is booming to Texas. And the truth is, yes I was yelling, and I’m not proud of that and I’m not excusing it, but it sounds a lot louder than in real life…. A…

B, I’m cringing because it is a knob—which I’m never going to condone property destruction, it’s very close to the tippy top of rules you just don’t break in this house.

And they already knew that was a bad thing, because they were trying to blame it on other people.

The Inquisition

In true Kate Gosselin style, the mom-of-eight was not going to just let it lie. She’s determined to uncover the culprit, busting out with the thumbscrews and waterboard, in her bid to get the truth.

Well, not really—obviously—but, the clearly frustrated mom starts firing questions at her boys. Who? Why? When? Where were you? Where were they?

However, all she receives in response is a string of lies and blame-passing—adding yet further to the harried mom’s frustration.

So, has anything changed with time?

Those boys… every day… to this day…some don’t answer…. nobody did it…he did it.. it wasn’t me.. i didn’t see anything.. i don’t know what happened… she did it.. i don’t know… wasn’t there…and that is probably in every household, and that is one of the most difficult things to handle, because now it’s not just about the property destruction….now there’s lying going on.

How does Kate figure things out?

I rarely do…unless there was an eye witness….and its exhausting.

Exhaustion and parenting go hand in hand, and it’s a shame because exhaustion makes you miss a lot of amazing memories and makes you react differently.

I’ve lived most of my life exhausted most parents would probably agree. I mean at that timeframe, or now, I don’t know how to fix that.

Sleep when you can, eat when you can, exercise when you can and make a memory when you can, but man, its just…. its a job….

Love her or loathe her, you’ve really got to feel for Kate Gosselin..... come on now.... at least a little bit?!!!

kate gosselin blind date Kate Gosselin Goes On Blind Date—Takes All Her Baggage Along With Her

In tonight's episode of Kate Plus 8, the formidable Kate Gosselin goes on a blind date, and takes all her baggage along with her.

Anyone who is aware of Gosselin, likely has a strong opinion about her—but, whether you love her or loathe her, you’ve got to give her props for pulling no punches, and always putting it all out there—warts and all.

Kate Gosselin’s Heartbreaking Confession—Watch the Video!

As Popdust previously reported, the reality star mom has been outspoken about her disdain for now ex-husband and father of her eight kids, Jon Gosselin.

And it’s little wonder Kate lacks respect for her 38-year-old ex—in their divorce filing, Jon admitted to making poor decisions leading to financial issues, he also admitted to using “poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon”, has flitted from job to job, working as a waiter, before deciding to pursue his dream of becoming a DJ.—and leaves the vast majority of his children’s care, and financial support, solely to Kate.

Kate Gosselin’s Attempt To Show How Happy Kids Are Results In Utterly Cringeworthy TV

So, it’s no surprise she’s carrying more than the average amount of baggage—not to mention the fact she’s a single mom raising eight friggin’ kids on her own.

During a TLC special last year, celebrating Gosselin turning the big 4-0, she shared how sick-to-death she is of everyone always asking her if she’s dating, and claimed that the five years since her divorce had been “the happiest of [her] life” (all while looking like she is about to jump under a bus).

But, it appears she’s now ready once again to dip her toe in the romance pool, so when her best friend Deanna suggests setting her up on a blind date with a hunky single friend of hers, Gosselin agrees (all while looking like she is about to jump under a bus).

One thing she insists on however, is that Deanna pre-warn the guy that she has eight kids—because, and for once we totally agree with Gosselin, it’s a pretty important thing to be aware of when considering a potential love interest.

The guy in question, a dishy-looking and very sweet seeming dude named Vann, clearly isn’t deterred by the news, because sure enough, there he is, in a restaurant, sitting opposite the formidable Kate Gosselin for an interview dinner.

Old Vann is a braver man than most...

Dinner with Kate Gosselin looks to be every bit as fun as you imagine dinner with Kate Gosselin would be—and, that’s not much fun at all.

And, in true Kate Gosselin style, she wastes no time informing the dude of her expectations when it comes to any future partners—all while managing to get in a few jabs at the expense of her ne’er-do-well ex.

Case in point:

I think my experience from what I’ve been through, my main message to my kids is never settle…and do be comfortable with yourself.

Enough so that you’re not just marrying and being with the first person that comes along…. I think that that’s a big mistake that a lot of people make.

And, you know, this time around I have to be extra choosy, not only for myself, but the bar is set very much higher because it matters… so much more even [for my family]

I do know that the person who comes along, that sticks around….if you’re willing to take on someone with eight kids you have to be pretty darn tough..like, from the get go. And so I think that in itself will be, like, the ready made test.

That Kate Gosselin does love her “tests” doesn't she?!!

Bizarrely, old Vann manages to still remain undeterred, and even claims he had “fun” during the interview dinner date.

He tells the camera:

I don’t think I had any clue of what to expect as someone who has actually never seen the show…I walked in blind. She’s just a really engaging person, I’m having a great time, so, it’s been fun.

Well, one thing's for sure—he’s a braver man than most.

Kate Gosselin is back for another TLC Kate Plus 8 special—and is it just us, or does she look more and more miserable and wretched each and every time?!!

This time, the single mom takes the cameras along as she celebrates (kind of) turning the big 4-0 in Mexico, with her eight kids and her best friend Deanna.

During what appears to be an utterly excruciating dinner—which Kate later professes to be “one of the most memorable nights” in a very long time (Jesus, what are her usual nights out like?!!)—she basically bitches and moans and gripes about how sick she is over everyone always asking her if she’s dating, and claims that the past five years, since she divorced Jon Gosselin, have been “the happiest of my life” (all while looking like she’s about to jump under a bus).

She later shares to camera (all while looking seriously depressed) that the night was particularly special, because she actually almost managed to forget for a while that she’s the mother of eight children.

Nice!

Well, one thing is for certain, Kate Gosselin certainly isn’t mellowing or improving with age—in fact, she morphs more and more into a robotic Stepford Wife with each and every day it appears.

Well, happy birthday Kate, we guess….

Tune into TLC tonight at 10/9 central to see Kate have the most miserable looking birthday ever time of her life south of the border with her poor long suffering best friend and her oh so lucky eight kids.

Jon Gosselin is reported to be seeking custody of one of his eight children with ex-wife Kate Gosselin.

Yes, you read that right—ONE of his eight kids.  According to US Weekly he is looking to obtain full custody of their 11 year old daughter Hannah.

Kate has always had primary custody of their kids and the reason behind his seeking custody now and of only one of them is unknown.  How bizarre is that?  What about the rest of the kids?  Imagine how that must feel knowing that Daddy wants to live with your sister.....but not you.

Jon and Kate were married between 1999 and 2009 and found fame thanks to their reality series Jon & Kate Plus 8, following their lives with their twins and sextuplets.

Following their divorce, Jon has admitted to making poor decisions leading to financial issues and is now attempting to carve a career as a DJ.  He has acknowledged that there is no co-parenting relationship with Kate who has moved on and is now dating millionaire Jeff Prescott.

Gosselin's rep has commented on his weird custody suit saying;

"Jon's priority is what is best for the kids... [He will] fight for them. Jon is currently not commenting on the situation. His focus remains on his children."

Ok—well that's cleared that up then.

Kate Plus 8 and My Big Fat Fabulous Life gave TLC massive ratings on Tuesday night—no surprise there!

Kate Gosselin made a return to our screens with 1.8M P2+ viewers and Whitney's story on MBFFL premiered at over 1.3M P2+ viewers, leading to TLC ranking #2 on the night and kicking both Bravo and Lifetime's butt!

Which just goes to show that TLC are continuing to come up with fresh new drama that should REALLY make Bravo worried, considering this is their forte.

There will be all-new episodes of Kate Plus 8 and My Big Fat Fabulous Life Tuesday at 9PM ET/PT and 10PM ET/PT on TLC—we get to see Kate and the gang overcoming fears of seasickness on a boat and trapping lobsters.

Meanwhile Whitney is working hard to make her “Big Girl” dance classes a success, but the disgusting bullying and heckling from a complete stranger threatens to derail the whole thing.

Don't miss them!

Kate Plus 8 is back on TV tonight, and there's more of the wonderful shenanigans we expect from Kate and the Gosselin clan!

There will be five consecutive specials, featuring a family trip to New England, house renovations, and the twins' 14th birthday.

Considering we have Kate on Celebrity Apprentice as well, there's a whole new respect for the way she handles having such a gigantic family and taking care of them essentially by herself.

Don't miss Kate Plus 8 tonight at 9/8c on TLC!
