Kate's book doesn't come out until tomorrow, but we already have our copy. And we'll give you a sneak peak right now. The direct quotes we have been seeing in the media are true. The following is pulled directly from the book, not exaggerated, not misquoted. It may be hard to be believed .... but it's all true.
The Letters ....
- In her letter to Cara, Kate tells her the pregnancy was difficult and she was sick all the time. And in the same letter, she says “life is always difficult.”
- In her letter to Mady, Kate insists to her that all the decisions she has made for her have been best for her even if Mady disagrees right now. She points out a time when Mady lied about a beach towel on the floor and said she wants to instill honesty in her.
- In Alexis’ letter, Kate calls her naughty and says the changes from the divorce have been confusing and upsetting to her.
- In Hannah’s letter, she says the divorce has caused pain and doubt and shaken her.
- In Aaden’s letter, she calls him an inconsolable baby and points out the many pairs of glasses he went through at a cost of $200 each.
- In Collin’s letter, he tests and tries her authority every chance he gets.
- In Leah’s letter, she says she bickers and fights and tattles, and was a difficult baby.
- In Joel’s letter he is too easy-going and laid back for Kate’s “rush-rush” personality and she lacks the skills to father him.
The Rest of the Book ....
- When Kate was pregnant with the twins, she was praying for girls. (Girls are better than boys.)
- The Andrew Ave. house wasn’t good enough because it had many pitfalls and dangers, such as a staircase. (A staircase, how dare it give you access to the second floor!)
- After the babies turned one, Kate claims she and Jon were caring for them mostly by themselves. (I'm sure all the helpers appreciate that)
- Kate had twin dolls as a child--two sets of them. Abigail and Artie and Gina and Geoffrey. She wanted twins since childhood. (Gunning for multiples since day one, as we all suspected.)
- Kate says she is thoroughly annoyed with fans. (Ungrateful.)
- Kate discusses the infamous trip to the National Zoo that was filmed for Jon and Kate Plus 8 but mysteriously never aired. And now we know why. On the trip it poured rain. Poured. Kate put the kids in trash bags to protect them from the weather and they stayed out all morning. Later while the adults stopped at Starbucks, leaving the kids waiting in the van, the came back to discover Alexis had thrown up. (Must have my latte.)
- Kate writes letters to God in her journal. Kate has a chapter called “Dear Jesus.” (You‘re on God‘s speed dial Kate, number 6!)
- When Kate quit her nursing job to stay home with the kids, Cara lunged at her and held her for awhile. (How can you leave your kids after that?)
- Kate originally had seven embryos take, but one died soon after. Kate is convinced this baby was another girl and named her Ella or Emma Rose. (The more girls, the better!)
- TLC footed the bill when Kate shopped at Sam’s (So that‘s why we always saw her shopping there!)
- Kate says her financial situation is uncertain. (Liar.)
- While Kate and Jon were in the garage one evening answering fan mail, Leah hurt her head--a small gash that bled. They never knew what happened because the kids were too little to explain. Even though a neighbor said she needed a stitch and should be taken in, she never saw a doctor. (Why were the kids alone in the house?)
- And finally, “Where I lived, the career mom was not normal, but in New York it was. It was good to fit in. I’ve learned to talk to my kids on the phone and love them from afar, reminding myself that I had to do my job. I truly enjoy the campaigns, books, shows, media.”
