Kate Gosselin credits God for making her so unappealing

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Back in January, Kate Gosselin of “Jon & Kate plus 8” spoke candidly to Today’s Christian Woman about the important guidance God has given her as she’s pursued the path of reality-TV loathsomeness. Some highlights from the interview:


MEEK: Shall inherit earth

On how God provides between $25,000 and $75,000 for every hour that she allegedly exploits children on TV: “[Jon and I] do talk a lot about God’s blessings and provision. That’s a constant conversation in our house, one that started a long time ago when we didn’t have enough of something and God provided it. I’ve always made a point to say, “Oh my goodness, look what Jesus gave us.”

On why being a Christian absolves her of any responsibility for her unconvincing attempts to be gentle and Christlike: “I feel like it took me having sextuplets to realize I’m not in control. Honestly, if I’d never had the kids, I’m sure I never would have learned to rely on God.”

On how much God thinks Jon sucks: “I’m trying to trust God to have the right response to Jon. I’m still hard on him at times, but I think I’m softening.”

On why she absolutely must go ahead with the rumored Kate Gosselin sunglasses line, even though she can’t stand the thought of exposing her family to further scrutiny: “It’s just all about letting God be in control and trusting his plan for our lives…at this point in my life, I don’t want to do anything that’s outside his plan, even if that means giving up something I really want or love.”

On why she and God and Jon will someday look back at all this, while sharing a plate of buffalo chicken wings at TGIF, and laugh and laugh:
“I can honestly say Jon is my best friend. He’s the only one who, besides God, has been there with me and shared this crazy ride.”

On whether or not the Almighty supports the notion of a Sixth Season: “I don’t know. You’d have to ask God. We don’t ever know where we’re going to be and what we’re going to be doing. I don’t have a grand plan anymore. I’m okay to be wherever God wants us.”
