‘Controversial’ Kate Gosselin Loses TV Gig
Kate Gosselin just got dumped, again. (How’s that for a Merry Christmas?)
The TV mom has been cut from her upcoming TV series pilot … for being “too controversial,” reports RadarOnline.
Executives behind the proposed series ‘Momlogic,’ described as ‘The View’ for working moms, booted the polarizing ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8‘ star, fearing she’s too controversial. Producers allegedly also believe the mother of eight is “not ready for a full-time hosting job, even as part of a panel.”
Gosselin shot the pilot in September, appearing as one fourth of a hosting panel that includes Food Network star Paula Deen, Lee Woodruff and former ‘Early Show’ co-host Rene Syler.
Whether or not you’re a Gosselin fan, she still sounds like the most interesting part of that lineup. And the irony of it is, in Hollywood, isn’t it ‘controversy’ that sells?
Not everyone wanted her out, however. “There was a lot of arguing,” says a source, but Kate was ultimately dropped. The future of the series is now in question, according to Radar.
Mama Gosselin, who will still star in a new TLC show, was recently seen taping a hush hush ‘test’ segment for a series, but it’s unclear if this was for ‘Momlogic’ or another project Gosselin has in the works.
Don’t worry, Kate. There’s always ‘Dancing with the Stars.’
