5/25 Sneak Peak of the Season Premiere


I smell a publicity stunt for the show!

I really think this one is coming out to coincide with the new season. Although there are a million things to snark on in this article, the fact that she doesn't want her kids brought into this makes me laugh. She put them out there when she whored them for coin on the show. She has no one to blame but herself. Freak.

Kate Gosselin: Tabloids Are Turning My Life Into Hell
By Kate Coyne

As scandalous headlines continue to surround Kate Gosselin, her husband Jon, and their eight kids, the fed-up reality star is wondering when people will stop attacking her.

"Before this, I'd never stood on line at the grocery store, looked at the people on the cover of magazines, and thought about what they're going through," she tells PEOPLE. "I'd never thought, 'Oh my god, this is totally doing them in.' But now, I understand what they live with: Everywhere you go you're being stalked, you're being followed – it's hell, on the cover of a magazine."

Kate admits she's often been an easy target for those who want to make her out to seem like a monster. "In the first two and a half years that we were doing the show (Jon & Kate Plus Eight), I felt very ugly towards fans," she says. "The gawking, that sort of response creeped me out. I was not willing or ready to accept what you get back when you put your life out there.

"But over time, Kate learned to embrace the attention. "At some point, I turned around and I realized, 'Okay, people are pulling for us, the feel inspired by us, they love us. It clicked: without the fans there is no show, without the show, there is no job."

A Breaking Point
Though the Gosselins have gotten used to interest in their lives, the scrutiny of Jon and Kate has become increasingly intense since reports of the couple's alleged infidelities hit the newsstands. It’s tough to escape when the job that keeps their family afloat is also keeping them in the tabloid glare – and even the tough-minded mama has her breaking point.

"It's so scary," she says of the lengths to which some go to cover her family. "It's like one of those movies where you have to change your identity and go underground. I've been saying, 'Let's find a country where our show doesn't air, and let's just go there until this all dies.' I have to laugh about this, or else I'll cry. It's a matter of, when will they stop?"

No matter what might be said about her, Kate says if anyone really wants to see her bare her fangs, they only have to go after her kids. "I don't want them dragged into this. It kills me," she says. "I'm far from perfect, but I've started to prioritize what is important, what has to change, what I can live with, and what I have to live with. My children are important. My attitude is important. My marriage is important, and though I don't know where that's going right now, I know I can definitely choose my attitude. And I know that I will never give up, I will not stop, I will not fail my kids. Everything else I can't control, I'm just going to have to learn to live with it."

And the beat goes on- more juice

Deanna's brother is backing up his story- to get his 15 minutes or to tell the truth. You be the judge. E-online video.

Call it Jon & Kate Plus One Angry Brother
Jason Hummel, the brother of Jon Gosselin's alleged mistress, Deanna Hummel, is refusing to be quiet about her relationship with the reality star.

In a new interview with E! News, Jason claims that his Reading, Pa., home was the rendezvous spot of choice for his 23-year-old sister and the 32-year-old Gosselin, both of whom have emphatically denied that their relationship has gone beyond the realm of platonic.

The elder Hummel is also fuming over his sister's claims that he has been making up salacious details after her headline-grabbing public outing with Gosselin.

"I am not a liar," Jason insists. "The rumors are true. It feels good to let people know that I am not the liar."

And despite the ramped-up tabloid attention and continued production of the Gosselins' TLC show, Jason says: "Personally, I do think they're going to continue seeing each other. I think they think they can get away with it.

"I hope she is not in love with him."

He also offers more details of the purported affair.

"He'd pick her up at least three times a week," says Hummel, beginning in January or February of this year.

"She told me she was having a friend over that night and I was like, 'OK,' " he continues, recalling his first encounter with the married reality show father.

"She's never telling me she's having anyone over and, lo and behold, a couple hours later, here's Jon Gosselin in my living room…I didn't like him from the start."

Hummel also admits that he videotaped and leaked footage of Gosselin leaving Hummel's home early in the morning because he was "sick…of seeing all these rumors going around when you know what's the truth.

"It's literally going on right in front of my face."

Hummel later recalled one of his final encounters with Gosselin.

"My sister says to me, 'Oh, Jon's going to get you tickets to the Phillies game, he has season tickets.'

"He goes, 'Yeah, I have season tickets behind home plate to the Phillies.' So I'm thinking to myself, is this like my hush money right here?"

Meanwhile, the entire scandal is turning into a family affair for the Hummels, as Deanne's other brother, John, is also breaking his silence and backing Jason's account.

"[Jason] is telling the truth and they paint him in a bad picture and that's why I'm here—to let people know, he's telling the truth," John tells E! News.

As for Gosselin, there's apparently no love lost.

"His wife is crazy," says John. "I guess I would cheat on her too."

As it happens, Kate Gosselin's side of the story will no doubt be heard when the fifth season of the reality show premieres on May 25.

"My kids are the reason I do everything," she says in a solo interview in a sneak peak of the show.

Jon, meanwhile, seems to be doing his best to keep things in perspective.

"The world isn't about ratings and TV. It's about happiness and love. Compassion and intimacy. Family and God. I think we all got caught up in everything. Kate and I have obviously been going through a lot of stuff and discussing what's best for our kids," he said. "It's a crazy life, but it's our life."

Sources are coming forward to talk about how bitchy and witchy Kate Gosselin has been since day one. I'll update if scans become available.

COVER STORY: Kate Gosselin Fired 40 Staffers in 3 Months Wednesday May 20, 2009

Baby nurse Angela Krall, who watched the sextuplets as infants for more than a year, tells Us that the short-fused Kate fired 40 nurses and nurse's aides in the three months before she was hired. A 2005 AP story reported that a pre-TV Gosselin had petitioned the state to extend payments for Krall, whose fees were first paid by Medicaid (Jon was unemployed; Medicaid provides limited assistance to premature babies). "Kate Gosselin said she feels society has a responsibility to help with the children, since modern medicine promotes the use of fertility drugs, which can lead to multiple births," the AP reported.

While Kate praised Krall in the same story, Krall reveals that Kate posted "demeaning" signs in every room detailing rules, and fired one woman on the spot for washing her hands in the kitchen instead of the bathroom. "Kate flipped," says Krall. "She thought it was cross-contamination."

That level of perfectionism also tore her apart from her father, Kenton Kreider, a pastor, after he gave her cribs donated by his parishioners. "They didn't match and Kate rejected them," says a family source. "Things like that caused a rift." Krall, who says all six babies ended up with matching cribs, tells Us Kate "thought they were owed stuff. The money factor was huge."

Indeed, a now-famous Gosselin has spent 21 out of the last 30 days on the road at paid speaking engagements; after she made news last week admitting that she might leave Jon, she continued on her book tour for five days as her husband tended to the kids.
