NEW YORK, NY – The girls of The View finally agree on something: how much they hate guest host Kate Gosselin.
Kate Gosselin is guest hosting The View, filling in for Elizabeth Hasselbeck who is on maternity leave. After only two days, the rest of the cast has joined together in how difficult it is to work with the insect woman mother of eight.
From the first minute on set Kate’s personallity could not help but shine through. Immediately she began ordering and organizing the other members of the panel into their places. No novice to television herself she instructed the camera operator how to catch her best side, and corrected the lighting designer. Shortly into filming Kate threatened to put Joy Behar into time-out for interrupting her. When Sherri Sheppard misquoted some facts about President Obama, Kate spent 5 minutes berating her ruthlessly in front of the cameras. The stunned audience shifted in their seats awkwardly the whole time.
Yesterday production was delayed by over an hour due to Kate’s behavior. Incensed at hwo they had been treated, the rest of the women on the panel refused to go on set with Gosselin. Kate, when told of the issue, said “Fine. Now they can’t screw it up.” and offered to host the show by herself. Producers worked feverishly to resolve the situation.
Whoopi Goldberg tried to negotiate with producers on behalf of the panel, asking that Gosselin restrain her behavior. Sherri Sheppard was heard from the Green Room shouting “That woman is Crazy!” When Gosselin came back stage to negotiate, things quickly became heated. Barbara Walters asked Gosselin if she wanted “to take this outside?” Forty-five minutes later an agreement was reached and taping began.
Producers have yet to decide if they will end Kate’s run on The View early to comply with the wishes of their cast, or extend her contract to see Barbara Walters throw a chair.

IF THIS IS EVEN REMOTELY TRUE, THEY SHOULD ABSOLUTELY GET RID OF KATE, RIGHT NOW! HOW RIDICULOUS TO COME ONTO A SHOW AS A GUEST AND TRY TO TAKE OVER ! IT IS HIGH TIME PEOPLE STARTED BOYCOTTING ANYTHING TO DO WITH JON OR KATE. LET THOSE CHILDREN GROW UP IN AS NORMAL A SITUATION AS THEY POSSIBLY CAN WITH WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THEIR PARENTS. JON AND KATE NEED TO GET REAL JOBS AND STOP SUCKING THE SYSTEM DRY!!! IT MAKES ME SICK. I WILL NEVER WATCH THAT SHOW AGAIN. IT WAS TRULY CUTE IN THE BEGINNING. I REALLY ENJOYED WATCHING, BUT GI VEN THE MILLION PLUS HOUSE, MERCEDES SUV'S, SPA'S ETC…..I WON'T EVER TUNE IN AGAIN AND BE APART OF THIS NONSENSE. A DISGUSTED VIEWER
You said it like it is!!!!! Moochers, suckers, self centered people need to get real!!!! Why give them an international audience?????? The normal, educated, sensible viewers need to demand something worth watching. I agree with you……my time can be bettter spent elsewhere.
You are so full of it. This seems like BS to me and not likely how the professional hosts would act. This is gossip presented as a news report. For shame.
Seriously? SERIOUSLY?? You have failed, JBN. You have failed horribly.
You're so right, this report is absolutely ridiculous. The entire cast seemed nothing but professional during Kate's time on The View, and I really enjoyed watching her. If you're not going to print the truth, don't print anything at all. If you have something against Kate, this isn't the way to handle it, you're just making yourself look dumb.
This is so funny.
LOL — this is probably not true but it's very funny! What gave it away as snark? When you said that Kate corrected Sherri Sheppard on misquoting some facts about President Obama. Kate Gosselin only knows one subject well — and it's anything to do with KATE. She probably is aware that our President is Barack Obama, and that he and his wife only have a measly two children, but strong men who command respect are not Kate's cup of tea.
kinda smelly to me but then again kate has bossed others around the tlc set. noticed how she sat in the middle of the group the second day???? and her new attention getting hairdo? so who's to say… i still say barbara needs to nip this one in the bud and do not let this man abuser back on the view. bring on jon barbara … what would it hurt???? i can hear whoopi now is kate really that mean to you? how did you tolerate her? rumor has it that kate wants her on "mommy/family themed" morning talk show. i hope jon is more successful than kate in their life time.
JOKE JOKE JOKE JOKE! !!!
THEY LIKED HER SO MUCH THEY ASKED HER BACK FOR A 3RD TIME. TRUTH.
Yeah, and Kathy Griffin will be there too. Did you see the Kate is Enough spoof. Hilarious.
you are full of it. they did not ask her back for a 3rd time. I am in the know and i can tell you that they hate her.
He divorced her for a reason ya know……
yeah, he's an immature, money hungry, man!
Oh, please, people. Get a grip. This was all make believe — just to make us laugh!
This article is way too mean spirited, and I can't help but doubt it as factual. I'm sick of the "TMZ style" of mocking celebs simply for the reason that they are famous. I don't want a love letter to Kate, but this piece is pandering to the haters. Its like comics who cuss up a storm because they aren't funny or clever enough to come up with authentic humor. Very poor writing! Grade: F
That sounds like the real Kate to me
ditto! do tell me what the heck is kate's talent…she's the mom of 8 and happens to be pretty, but dear lord her personality is dull…she appears to be mean spirited…its all about kate, kate, kate…we're really giving her too much credit for accomplishing nothing…
I think Kate was put in the middle behind the table because on the end she sat and kicked her leg any time the camera slid away from her. She also grabbed the guests first being on the end, noticed her tight clinch with Dr. Phil like they were 'dear friends' while he just looked uncomfortable and did state reality tv is hard on marriages … hint, hint, Kate. Oh yeah, you need to hit her with a board to get a point across.
Gett rid of her.
Sounds like you are all jealous of Kate . I really don't like the View ,shes got 8 kids to take care of
I hate to burst all of the Kate is a "Superstar" bubbles out there, but I would point out that the Duggar family is juggling more than DOUBLE what those 2 even had to deal with !!! Try watching what a…Sucessful and True family is supposed to be like. Yes, they also have thier show and do things on television, but I have yet to see either of the parents…hosting tv shows or any other types of Crap we've all put up with making the Gosselin's more wealthy and less inclined to get real jobs sans John I think. The Duggar's will stand by each other no matter what happens and you'll Never see the…Gosslin crap. Then again, opinions are like…rearends, everyone has one 😉 Truly Disgusted.
You are sooo right in asking what exactly Kate's talent is?? Sure, she is the "mother" of 8 kids in that she gave birth to them, but how often on the show were they left with a sitter or she had a "helper" there for the kids. No housekeeping- No laundry- Just a lot of bossing and talking as though she was the ONLY one who ever knew anything. The View just shows how much she is all about herself and could never be on a show that doesn't totally involve KATE, KATE, KATE, and ONLY KATE!! Hope it's just a rumor about her having a talk show– wouldn't she love to just talk for an hour all about herself and what a great mother she thinks she is. The only problem- who would watch it??? (other than just at first to see how pathetic)
Reginald Cunningham III, please stop gossiping…..this is not the truth and you could care less if it is or not. You just want something to write about, unfortunately this is total BS!
When Kate tries to convince me that she is a Christian, I want to say STOP the EGO = edging God out Kate. The job of judging others, had already been filled long before either of us were ever on this planet, by my HP= Higher Power. Respect=5cs = common sense, caring, consideration, co-operation,and compassion. Kate I do my own daily inventory, and I work very hard to respect myself first, so that others can see by my example, and my footprint that I chose to leave on this planet. Greedy, selfish, selfcentered, narcistic, are not words that serve anyone in a positive way, and yet your behaviour repeatedly is drawn to the negative excitement. Insanity is the act of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, I would be doing things differently.
sounds very believable to me, I hope she is never invited back, can't stand to see her face or hear her voice. she is a self proclaimed celebrity and needs to go home and take care of her kids and stay away from the cameras
same applies to Sarah Palin. Who is minding the home and children while they are out promoting themselves?
Since the comments need a dash of realisim -face the facts guys if Jon had a clue of what a man should do -Kate wouldn't have had to treat him like a sniffling brat.
Kate has those beautiful children to support and at least SHE is making an effort.
No real man would take sides with that pitiful excuse of a person that threw away a good and decent family for a piece of tail (okay several pieces)
It's made up garbage so you the viewer will tune in to watch the show. Why you ask? Well I will tell you……The View is low on ratings……………now do you get it?
Kate, wow, do the words, "wack job" mean anything?
TMZ, caught her filling her truck up with gas, and she snubbed the crew, never even saying, one kind word.
She is full of baloney, a stunt woman, crying in front of the cameras, all for the love of money.
She is a terrible woman, gosh darn, no wonder he left her, although he is not any better' running around with trash, day in and day out, that family, is dysfunctional to the hills.
Kate, Jon, go live somewhere else, and, here is a quarter, go call someone who cares.
I believe every word of how Kate acts on the View is true….we know that if it's in print it's the gospel! I was in the audience for one of the tapings and it was scary dangerous, chairs were flying….hairpulling….accusations of adultery and cursing were rampant and that was just the audience!! I think they asked Kate back for the THIRD TIME…so while she was getting her makeup done Barbra Walters could gouge her eyes out with with an icepick, Whoopi could hold her down and shave her head, and Joy could talk her non-stop nonsense until Kate's ears bled!! NOT!!!
This did NOT happen, people! Where is your sense of humor? Oh that's right, you're all so used to seeing Kate in action, it was hard NOT to believe! LOL! I never watched J & K + 8, and could never figure out WHY they had a reality show in the first place! The woman is a total shrew and tried to make Jon child #9 — although he did quite well in obliging her! Total losers!
Yes she has her flaws but how many woman do you know who could manage all those children and be as successful as she's been. She's not thAt a bad. In fact I can see her on the View because of her clear way of speaking and commanding presence….lets give her a break…
she deserves a job just like any of us….and besides, she's given her children a whole lot more than other woman who are having to work five days a week and leave their children at day care…..Kate continues to want the best for them….more power to her….
If any of you watched Jon and Kate Plus Eight, you've already seen Kate's attempts to organize/direct everything and to belittle Jon every chance she had.
So, why is this same behavior any surprise to any of you and/or to the cast and producers of The View?
RATINGS, PEOPLE RATINGS!
Why would anyone in their right give Kate Gosellin any more time on tv than she's already had. She's a reality "star" and nothing more. She just needs to go away and I wish she'd take the people with 19 kids, the Kardashians and every other so called "star" with her.
Way to ruin a good shows guys.
kate is really a crazy, bossy woman, not surprise if Jon did what he did. Stay away from camera Kate. Just take care of your 8 kids, find a job. Good luck to you.
The producers want to make sure there is an auidence when Kate appears. They know how much she is hated by the general public. By making up this story they want to assure themselves people will watch to see what happens. Sadly there are people who believe this crap and will watch. How lucky to have no talent and become a celebrity. I feel so bad for those out there graced with God given talent, go to school to learn and practice, practice, practice to improve their craft. How long will it take people to wake up and see how Kate takes and takes from those with lesser money. I can't believe that people who watch the show actually buy her kids Christmas presents! Do they still not know how much money John and Kate have? MY GOD PEOPLE! Send your money to a people who have lost their jobs. It's not fair that they be punished for having their children one at a time separated by years. I am 60 years old with 3 grown children. They have all turned out great. I would have never, ever taken advice from Kate on how to rear children and I would advise others not to take advice either. Ask your mother, sister, grandmother, doctor even a neighbor before going down the Kate road. Her twins are a mess and the past will catch up with the other children. Good mother? NOT!!!!!!!
This is for high rateings. kate is a great person . I think the OLD bags on the show are JEALOUS of her youth. Give her a break shes trying to make a living for her family. More then can be said about the childrens father.Hes the train reck. Really, she has done nothing to disgrace her children or her self. Kate was a good business woman, when she and Jon were working and realized their two incomes were not enough to suport the family she became a reality show (Jon and KATE PLUS 8. The popularity went to Jon boys head .(you guess which one)
Now i know why jon dumped her. Enough said …
I REALLY enjoyed watching the Jon & Kate + 8 shows until i found out all the $$$$ they were making per episode………. It kinda made me mad that after admiring a family living daily life with all the normal problems with money, etc……..to find out it was basically all a farce!!!
lLet Kate live her life and you uninformed narrow minded people leave her alone,she is trying to support her eight children.I beleive unless you have walked thru a couple days of her life,your opinions mean nothing.
I would love to believe that most of this story is only the writer's imgination… However, I have yet to read, see or hear ANYTHING about Kate Goslin that would convince me she is anything less than the self-centered, egotistical control freak she shows herself to be. Unfortunately for dear Kate.. the red light of the camera has blinded her to reality. The minute the camera rolled on her for the first time.. she believed… she… was a star!.. Everything… and everyone…. came AFTER that fact. Her home, her children and most assuredly, her husband. This is in no way an excuse for Jon's phiilandering.. He's as poor an example for a husband and father as she is for a wife and mother. They both need counseling, as will undoubtedly all eight of their children.
Why do people watch kate. She is out for herself only and those children suffer. Shame on the View for having Kate on the show. I hope Barbara takes her outside and leaves her. Kate watch the Duggers thats how to raise children. Iwill not watch anything kate is on. You lost a viewer the View.
I am not familiar with the writer of the article, but i would not put it past Kate to act like herself. I agree with Lois and a few other that said she needs to stop milking the system and get herself a real job. If she knew they (Jon and kate) were not going to provide financially for their kids why did they choose to have all those kids. How does the rest of America raise their kids? Some do struggle and fortunately they fulfill their commitment.
What a crock! Are you so desperate to have your gossip column noticed that you have to manufacture what you think will draw the most readers? The mere fact that she is asked to return repeatedly should make it obvious this is sheer chutzpah on your part…controversy is the honey that draws the blowflies!
I'd have to check with you here. Which is not some thing I usually do! I appreciate reading a post which will make people today think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!
