Kate Gosselin And The Kids Fly To Australia In First Class. Kate Gosselin and her brood of 8 has flown to Australia to film their show. The “Kate Plus 8″ stars jetted Down Under in first class without their dad and former TLC reality show co-star Jon Gosselin. According to our source, Kate will also be traveling to New Zealand, and will be accompanied by her bodyguard Steve Nield. TLC is understood to be paying for the trip since they will be filming episodes of the show while the 35-year-old mom and her kids are taking a vacation. Our source told that Jon and his girlfriend Ellen Ross are left in the states, saying, “Kate and the kids flew out just before midnight last night in what will be a staggered trip to Australia and New Zealand.” “Obviously, Jon was informed of the excursion and the kids will not see their father again until mid-January when they return to America with their mom. They will be filming for ‘Kate Plus 8′ and the kids are excited about visiting both Australia and New Zealand.” Earlier this month, Kate and her kids guest starred in the TLC show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” wherein the Pennsylvania natives traveled to the Last Frontier and camped in the wild with the former governor and her family. Although the Gosselin kids were clearly enjoying their camping adventure, they had to cut their trip short after their whining mother threatened to cut them off from the family if they didn’t leave with her. Hopefully, since Australia is in summer season this time of the year, Kate won’t have any reason to whine and complain and force the kids to fly to the U.S. while they are still enjoying the trip.
Kate Gosselin Responds On Rumored Kids’ Expulsion From School. Kate Gosselin is responding to the reports that two of her sextuplets have been expelled from school. The “Kate Plus 8″ star blames pressure and her divorce from Jon Gosselin as the culprits for her children’s suffering. Colin Thomas and Alexis Faith, two of the Gosselin sextuplets, were said to be expelled from their school after displaying consistent bad behavior. When asked by our source if the rumors were true, Kate answered, “Two of my children, no, are being tutored at home, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school, doing the identical curriculum.” She explained that the “pressure was getting to them. You have the divorce anger mixed in with that. The goal is to get them back into school as soon as possible.” Kate also denies the reports that her upcoming TLC show “Twist of Kate” has been canceled, saying, “We’re sort of still trying to shape it [into] what it needs to be and what is going to be fun. So no, not canceled.”
Jon Gosselin’s Tattoo Spells Girlfriend’s Name Wrong. Jon Gosselin’s attempt at wooing his new girlfriend may be a wasted effort. The erstwhile “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ star had Ellen Ross’ name in Korean tattooed on his back, but an expert says her name is spelled wrong. Last month, the father of 8 had a Korean dragon inked on his back, which supposed to symbolize his rebirth and change. He also added the names of his 8 kids with ex-wife Kate and his girlfriend Ellen’s name tattooed into the design. But Hyung-eun Min of the Korean Culture Service told Life & Style that the spelling of Ellen’s name is actually the Korean spelling of the male name Aaron or Aron. The names of his kids were correct, though. Ellen was reportedly behind the tattoo’s idea.
“Sex and the City” and “Gossip Girl” aside, TV’s not known for its high fashion quotient. But some of its least stylish players hail from the reality TV realm. True, these regular style offenders don’t have the advantage of working with a costume designer or stylist on set. But after searing our eyes with dozens of bejeweled Ed Hardy T-shirts (Jon Gosselin) and a shocking amount of cleavage (Heidi Montag) we find our empathy in short supply. Continue reading →
While Jon Gosselin has been spotted out with more than one woman since splitting from his wife, Kate Gosselin is not ready for romance. “I am not yet divorced officially,” she told Larry King on CNN’s Larry King Live Tuesday when asked if she feels single. As for attracting potential suitors, Gosselin was clear that she’s “too busy” to date. “I’m lonely, but I’m very busy,” she said stoically. Addressing how the couple’s children – 9-year-old twins (Mady and Cara) and 5-year-old sextuplets (Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis and Leah) – are handling the split, Gosselin said: “They understand the process [of divorce]. They’re working through it the same way that Jon and I are. They’re doing remarkably well.” Gosselin says that like any kids whose parents Continue reading →
In Touch Weekly reports that Jon Gosselin proposed to his 22-year-old girlfriend Hailey Glassman during their romantic French getaway over the weekend – and even discussed getting married in Las Vegas. Lest we forget, he’s still married, though wifey Kate has filed for divorce. “Jon has been telling everyone that he loves her and she loves him, so why waste time?” a source tells In Touch, adding that Gosselin gave his gal pal a $180,000 engagement ring designed by Edouard Nahum — featuring a skull surrounded by four black diamonds. Let’s see, that’s the equivalent of how many college educations for his kids? “They started dating two months ago and they both just knew the other was the one instantly,” says the source about the father of eight and his wild-child girlfriend. The magazine reports that the two stayed in a $2,000-a-night hotel room and were spied drinking champagne, eating lobster and celebrating their engagement. “They all went out to the V.I.P Room nightclub in St. Tropez after dinner,” says another source. “Hailey was flashing her ring around and they were kissing and hugging.” The magazine found people who knew Glassman in college who say that she’s “fame-hungry” and “she’s with him to use his money.”
