Breaking News: CouponCabin fires Kate

"A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago, and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit."

A Letter from CouponCabin CEO Scott Kluth


To all our Kate blog readers:
Some nine-plus years ago, I started CouponCabin with the thought of creating a single website that had all the best coupons… no gimmicks, no fluff, just a site that was easy to use and that had great deals. Along the way, we’ve helped our users collectively save hundreds of millions of dollars.
A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago, and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin.
It’s with this that I am writing to inform you of our decision to discontinue Ms. Gosselin’s feature blog on CouponCabin.com. Ms. Gosselin’s contributions garnered both positive attention and criticism, but as always, I respect and appreciate your candid opinions, which often encourage us not to lose sight of our mission — to help YOU save money.
We wish Kate, her family and her support staff all the best.


Scott Kluth
Founder and CEO of CouponCabin.com

The key word: "authenticity"

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Omg. They basically said she was inauthentic. I wonder if they are referring to the child abuse, her wealth or what.

Flight of the Kiwi said...

OOOO...Scott's letter is a bit snarky toward Kate. I truly thought it would come out more like: "We have enjoyed working with Ms Gosselin. Coupon Cabin has opted to move in a different direction and will no longer feature special blogs such as Ms Gosselin was writing." But No, instead (paraphrasing) "Well, that was a huge cluster f**k. Glad THAT contract is over. All our best to Kate and her family".

Wowser.

Amanda, Iowa said...

Is this for real??? Wow Kates Teflon layer must be wearing of a little, I guess :-)

Tweet-le De Tweet-le DUMB said...

It's about damn time! Kate Gosselin just doesn't fit with their authenticity. Who'd have guessed?So how long was she there...a year?

AuntieAnn said...

Inauthentic as in she hasn't got a clue about saving money and she lives like Cleopatra Queen of Egypt? Inauthentic as in liar? As in phoney? Who knows.

Gee that woman sure can't hold a job, even a simple one like writing a short blog entry once a week.


And she gets the axe.

That's worse than mediocre.

Bluebird said...

I think authenticity meant that she was not all that she was caracked up to be. CC was getting way too many negative comments and especially since the Gosselin Book came out. They could see that Kate was quite the hippocrite. Smile, be nicey nice to everyone but behind closed doors she was an abuser. I think that's what helped CC to decide to let her go.

Tweet-le De Tweet-le DUMB said...

Definition for authenticity: undisputed credibility. Yep, Kate definitely lacks that.
And such a public humiliation. Karma is hard at work.

I loathe this "woman" and "her" entire brand! said...

Let's just hope this isn't another opportunity for Khate to make the talk show circuit and say- see, now I don't have my Coupon Cabin job, I really need money to support my 8 kids. I do love the snark of the CEO. Aside from my loathing of Khate, "she" clearly did not have the intelligence or communication skills to write for any site and what an insult it was for people who are true writers and couponers! Khate never promoted Coupon Cabin and "her" blogs were nothing but self-promotion and an attempt to keep "her" relevant!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Inauthentic as in she had a support staff? Lol. I agree they could have said our contract is up it was a good run we wish her the best. Instead he really brought that axe down, ouch!

Sheeple, who has had more jobs than bathroom breaks now, huh???

I like too how they specifically said her actual posts were not aligning with their mission. We can't be blamed for the quality of her actual posts. She supposedly wrote them. Not us.

fonferek's glen said...

Wished her "support staff" all the best! Bizarre. Really makes you wonder who was writing the blog.

Sheri said...

Good! I'm not prone to enjoying other people's failures but there was absolutely nothing authentic about a millionaire writing a coupon blog. Add insult to injury, almost every post she wrote was a self-congratulatory piece of crap anyway.

Next.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

He also implies she was a gimmick and fluff by saying he tried to create a site that wasnt like that. Yikes!

Now we know where she's been, crying with her box of wine.

If the demands her support staff made on couponcabin were anything like those Kate made in the past no wonder they cut her off. They're really just a small business content farm. They can't afford a diva. Small businesses make or break it based on pennies, not dollars.

KathyB said...

Maybe part of it was her demands financially, as in travel, meals, lodging, etc.

Karma, Baby, Karma said...

Bringing this over from previous thread:

I doubt that Kate was fired from CC because she was a CHILD-BEATER and ANIMAL-ABUSER, though that probably didn't help her cause any.

The RECENT events probably have most to do with the revelations about her income. I think the exposure of her incredible lies about her financial status were the last straw.

INAUTHENTIC to the core, that's KK. She can't even pretend to speak for budgeting mothers any more, on any level.

Or maybe CC finally noticed that KK won't promote anything that isn't "Me, all Me".

Wow, is that announcement dripping with contempt. Wonder how long it's been waiting in the wings, and how many people at the Chicago CC office are celebrating today? Paaarty time, folks! The witch is dead!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

And this folks, is why the only divas that can really last in this business are so dripping with talent that no one will cut them off. All other divas will eventually push the limits one too many times with their imported water from Rome aqueducts and green m&ms that anyone hiring them will eventually say enough. I bet the bulk of this had to do with her demands. She probably treated them like her sugar daddy, not her boss.

librarylady said...

Yes, not typical that they would include SUPPORT STAFF. Very interesting.

And admirable that they laid it out there. Therefore, I, who does not make purchases without looking for an online coupon but refused to use CC while the fake poor Kate was there, will now make it a point to check it out for coupons as well.

Also, the fact that they made a pointed statement about an additional contribution to breast cancer support tells me they did not appreciate that Kate promoted herself and not their cause.

Aeduko said...

Imported water from Roman aqueducts!!!

Awesome!

Anonymous said...

God, it will be interesting to see how she spins this termination. "It was a one year contract and I really have SO much else going on that I just couldn't find the time to continue, I decided not to renew". BLAH, BLAH,BLACH!!!!!!!

bm

anger issues kate said...

I was just over at Kate twitter: I think her sheeple are in shock. No replies from them yet, and the only who saying anything are the haters. That one CJ is from what one posted, is bashing at CC.

Rumor alert: someone tweeted that Kate was doing a commercial for Nick. I don't think that will make it on air.

gabby2 said...

Also....DWTS did not "buy" into her BS either. "Her storyline"....hahaha. Only in her head.

I remember reading that when Kate met Jon she wanted everything in her life video taped. She is not falling from her house of cards very gracefully, that's for sure. And all on display.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Yeah I really want to hear Kate's take on this. I bet she'll imply she fired them! This is when following this crazy is really fun.

That letter was very layered with a lot. He said a lot about her. Good for them for making an actual statement calling her out. They could have just quietly let her go, instead she pushed them so much they decided to screw it and call her out for everything she is. How are the sheep doing?

Paula said...

Wow, Kate really angered someone at Coupon Cabin. That is one blistering letter.

Sherry Baby said...

"Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin."

___________________

OUCH! This statement implies that the CC team and culture are WONDERFUL, but that Kate doesn't fit with this WONDERFUL team! It sounds like she doesn't measure up to the high standards of the folks at CC and that she's NOT wonderful!

I wonder how long this has been in the works, and if she saw it coming. I guess they had enough of her inane drivel and ridiculous moronic tips, or maybe she's simply just a biotch to work with.

westcoastie said...

Authentically speaking, bwahahahahaaaaaa!!

Tweet-le De Tweet-le DUMB said...

Kate tweeted an hour ago that she's been busy and having fun and can't wait to share, so a couple of her fans are "omging" thinking that she has a new show.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I don't believe she once plugged CC in her last three interviews. I bet they have told her time and time again she must get in a plug. Bet it's even in her contract. Wonder if that was the last straw. She can't so something so basic they had to let her go.

emschick1128 said...

This is way to funny. I can't wait to see how the sheeple spin this one. Probably blame Jon or the "haters"

AMD said...

"...and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin..."
&&&
Perhaps the staff were threatening to mutiny if they were being treated the way others have been treated by Kate..as her underlings.

Mel said...

Bringing this over from the previous thread...sorry didn't see that there was a new post.

"A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago."

FINALLY!!!!! Somebody with integrity. Somebody with some balls. Somebody TLC/Discovery/Laverne & Shirley couldn't intimidate into silence. God bless gosselinbook. He tried. This CEO, man! did he succeed! Whomp!

koop dedoo said... 161
Don't you find it strange that the CC letter wishes Khate's "support staff" well?
Tells you he knows that she does NOTHING herself.

Bluebird said... 147
Oh dear God, here she is back on twitter, fun, fun, fun, work, work, work.
If history serves us, a l̶i̶t̶t̶l̶e̶ a lot of overcompensation here.

Jane said...

If her contract was up in Nov, they could have quietly let it expire and said a polite bye-bye. But instead, the CEO went public and fired her. This letter is scathing. She sure knows how to make friends and keep those good jobs coming!

Winsomeone said...

Maybe she got caught cheating in the last race? Or maybe she was to give a donation, and didn't?

gabby2 said...

Is milo on twitter silence. They must be commiserating on how to spin this....lol

PatK said...

Holy moly! I go out to run some quick errands and find THIS news when I return? I'm still trying to absorb all of this.

Thank God they finally had their fill of her.

That letter isn't a very glowing resume, is it?

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Hahahahahahahahahahaha WhoooooooHooooooooooooooo!.

It's about time Coupon Cabin woke up.
I'll bet they are ALL relieved to remove that albatross from their necks.

What happened, Kate?
Coupon Cabin did not know how to help you?

localyocul said...

It is very telling that they made a statement. They could have just taken her off the website and said her contract ran out. Their statement cites recent developments. I LOVE IT! They fired her because of RHor used him as an excuse to do so! So much for "doing fun things"

fonferek's glen said...

One additional comment -

She has to be very careful in how she chooses to spin this firing. This is not an issue where she can blame Jon or the paps or any of her previous foils and everyone will nod in understanding. The CEO of Coupon Cabin, her employer, signed the letter and would probably love to comment further, if necessary.

anger issues kate said...

As I wrote on other thread: did Kate actually write those blogs or did she just scribble some sentences down and e-mailed to one of her staff, and they wrote the blog.

And, CC doing an additional donation, CC was tryin to save face. Remember the Chicago run, CC made a big deal of it, lots of pics, even a whole blog on it, and did they not say how much they made, for donation. Not this time, not a word till now, and this was additional amount? More like this was an amount CC decided to donation, so they would not be embarassed by, the almost non existing donation support connected to Kate. Most of the comments for this CC blog on the race were negative and most said they do not/would not support Kate.

Kate is a twit said...

Kate's reaction will be to first retweet platitudes from @LifeTools or @Notebook. Then she will say that her blogs were all "edited" and it's not what she wrote.

"Support staff" could mean JCM, who probably came up with the idea of CC sponsoring her runs, both in Chicago and NY.

CC gave more support to Kate, than Kate ever gave to them. If you don't do the job-guess what, Kate? You get fired.

PatK said...

And of course...Coupon Cabin just doesn't know how to help her.

LOL

AuntieAnn said...

@Kateplusmy8 So Kate...another quiet day here! Hope ur having a really good time & enjoyin lots of success in this new endeavor! Miss U! :)


There's a positivity for ya Kate. Getting your ass canned is a "new endeavor". I've never heard it called that before.

llocalyocul said...

Sorry to post two in a row but I think by inauthentic it means she sold herself as a hardworking thrifty mom while she does nothing herself and gets free stuff. She's writing a cost saving blog for struggling families while she has millions and still begs for and gets freebies. Her free vaca helped to do her in

Kate is a twit said...

Maybe the new endeavor is the unemployment line.

sonya said...

wow. wow. people are starting to see right through her.

TLC stinks said...

OUCH! They did not renew her contract but it sounds more like she was canned. Not a flattering letter. She put so little effort into the blog and I bet Robert's book did not help. Now we just need to wait for Rock n Roll to kick her to the curb. She is no runner.

Remona Blue said...

I said it in the other topic, but I want to say it again here.

GO ROBERT! GO ROBERT! GO ROBERT GO!!

Anonymous said...

Reading the letter again, "...A SERIES of recent events..." stands out. They've had more than a single problem with her and more notably the recent revealations of her history of not only child abuse, but animal abuse as well. On top of all that - her blog stinks.

bm

PatK said...

So far, it appears her six twitter fans are totally ignoring her firing and focusing on the fact that she's hinting at a new endeavor.

Whatever this "news" may be, I pray the company behind it has a good escape clause.

Anonymous said...

She got let go because she is a CHILD ABUSER/ ANIMAL ABUSER! The CEO who fired her maybe has kids/ pets! KATE IS A HORRIBLE PERSON!!

I don't think it's because she didn't plug them, the interviewer did ! I didn't even know what CC was until Kate started working fo them! It's Roberts book that is finally bringing her down!

What is that about Kate doing a commercial for Kickelodeon?? A CHILD ABUSER! I hope that's not true for Nickleodeons sake!

Let's Throw Tomatoes

I don't use coupons....but I am going over to give CC some love. Maybe I'll start@@!

Hey Kate- "another one bites the dust..."

Yes, he does have balls, and she must have done something really out of line for him to lay them on the table like that. She royally p***ed someone off.

Dmasy said...

"Inauthentic"....well, if it wasn't her boobs, financial statement, mothering techniques, grifting ways, or Robert's tell-all, maybe they realized she didn't really add oil in her vehicle.


Seriously, I am a new fan of Coupon Cabin! They should be proud that they took a decisive and just action.

Formerly Duped said...

WOW!

Where is this found, on the CC site? At last! I agree with the posters who feel Kate was not a good choice for CC, being wealthy and writing about savings, but more-so that she did not provide useful information and basically talked about herself and gave pathetic little tidbits that everyone already knows.

Well, this should reduce Kate's dreaded paperwork1

I also agree she will spin it she left to work on her "secret projects"

Wonder if it was The Book or just that her contract was up and it was obvious she was inept at the 'job.'


Thanks for the update Admin :)
Who would her support staff be> steve?

Thank goodness.

Kate is a twit said...

On CC's home page, the link about supporting SGK has been removed, and has been replaced with "Looking for Kate? Read a letter from the CouponCabin CEO". It's on their MAIN page, not just hidden in the blog section.

This line in the letter also stands out:

"I respect and appreciate your candid opinions, which often encourage us not to lose sight of our mission — to help YOU save money."

Someone finally realized that Kate does not relate to the "mediocre" masses. I think the blog about saving on Halloween but not celebrating it, really made someone there go "Huh?"

Maybe the other CC bloggers who work hard and do their research also complained about how Kate's posts were nothing but self-promotion.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think a wealthy person can write credibly about how to save. If anything that's how they got to be wealthy. I think the problem is when they are being unauthentic by trying to pretend they need to save, or shafting others while spending on themselves. That's exactly how Kate's blogs came across--lies and shafting. It has never been attractive and they finally cut her off.

gabby2 said...

They even have free samples. I have a friend that loves this type of stuff. Sometimes she even gives me the ones she does not use.

Kate got canned so hence the (new) farting rainbows & unicorns tweet from her. She makes it sounds like everything is coming up daisies for her when in reality the ax is falling. Loser.

Never did I think you were defending kk. It was refreshing tonot, see political correctness in action.

Amy2 said...

The letter is undated. I wonder if the decision was made before or after the CC run this weekend.

anger issues kate said...

Admin: your right. She talks of saving: but buys a $500 meat slicer, that's not saving, just like the cars: I drive the kids to school bus, then drive home and use other car. Where is the saving in gas there? You just wasted gas driving back home and getting other car. And telling people to take out store credit cards. There was so much Kate never researched, like pool safety, not a word, in ground vs above ground pools etc, and Halloween? The last few were so short, done in what 3 min. And this last blog was so bad, I don't know how to hang a pic, or my favorite, I don't know how to paint or put oil in my car, newer cars? When a CEO fires it's bad. I would always say Kate blog were useless info that people already know, no saving, no research, lame info.

PoohBear said...

I think the 2 big clues in this letter are authenticity and support staff.

Clearly, this guy is NOT happy with our little Katie. They could have just said thanks for the memories and we will have a new blogger for you on Monday (or whatever date), but he took the time to carefully craft a letter with specific words that would hit home AND give hints as to why they were letting her go.

I think I will start visiting CC again in light of this little turn of events.

I suspect her wonderful save money for Halloween by not buying anything (and therefore not using any coupons) was probably the final nail in her coffin.

Dmasy said...

A mediocre woman with a conscience and any normal instincts would not be able to withstand these assaults.

What is she made of that she isn't curled into a tight ball of shame and remorse?

She needs more help than a rabid fan can provide.

anger issues kate said...

I think a party on friday night or saturday would be good. Not tonight the pres debate is on. Can't miss that.

As for Kate I feel nothing for her. Kate brought this on herself. She never promo CC, the lamo promo, she did was pitiful. AS I posted on other thread: that one TV show she did, when CC apps came out, Kate was to do a promo for those CC apps, Kate talked one sec on cc and had to asked about it, and spend the rest of the interview about herself, and her need to have another TV show. Then wrote a very short blog about the apps. I don't think she even wrote it, her staff did. Just like Kate kept saying she will have monday menu, when was the last one, even twitter, she hardly tweets. Doing a blog once a week was hard work for Kate, she had to use her brain. Even that was not much.

SeeSaw said...

While I'm glad to see Kate tossed to the curb so publicly, I do worry about the kids.
The book, the bad publicity. She's become a public joke. I can't help thinking she's got to take her anger and frustration out on someone.
Stay close Jon!

Radaronline has the story now: Here is an interesting tidbit from the story:

"An insider at the company exclusively tells RadarOnline.com that Kate was "difficult to work with, often making outrageous demands and just didn't fit in with the company as a whole.

"Kate thought that because she was a celebrity she could do or write whatever she wanted, but that's not the way it works."

gabby2 said...

dmasy, I hear you. That's why I compare her to Casey Anthony. NO sense of remorse anywhere...and for anything. She really doesn't give a damn as long as she gets her trips, shopping money and bodyguard.

Kate is a twit said...

E! has an article about her de-aging comment. I like the title:

Benjamin Button Alert: Kate Gosselin Didn't Get a Facelift, Says She Just "De-Ages"

http://www.eonline.com/news/354471/benjamin-button-alert-kate-gosselin-didn-t-get-a-facelift-says-she-just-de-ages

Her recent appearances on AH and WWHL are now coming back to bite her in the butt.

AH's website has another article(posted today) about how she handles stress by running etc. It also mentions CC:

"When Kate isn’t busy chasing after her kids, she loves to share her advice with other parents. Kate writes a family-friendly blog at CouponCabin.com. Plus, Kate is running the Rock ‘n Roll Los Angeles Halloween Half Marathon on October 28th on behalf of CouponCabin, who is donating money to the Susan G Komen for the Cure to benefit breast cancer. For more on Kate’s coupon blog or her upcoming race, check out www.couponcabin.com."

Yes, everyone go check out CC! I wonder if they'll now revise that article.

SeeSaw said...

One more thing before the sheep accuse us of hating Kate no matter what she tries: I would have APPLAUDED Kate for becoming a money-saving coupon blogger if she actually tried to do it without exploiting the kids.

Marie said...

So let me see if I have this.

Kate bashes Jon for having a mediocre day job while she was content with her former CC job, and now, with Jon still employed...does that still mean in Kate's mind she's still able to give herk ids better opportunities?

So, being fired is supposed to be better than having any job, at al? Really Kate?

I can only wonder what she is going to do now. She is officially unemployed, no job, of any kind.

Better stock up on your coupons there Kate. Maybe if you're lucky you'll be able to find those special coupons. You know, the ones that say "With your second cup of coffee you get 75% off on your next reality show offer."

I wish your down spirialling self all the best. Take a shovel because digging yourself out from this hole you've burried yourself in isn't going to be an easy climb out.

Seriously though--who is going to hire her or what type of job could she realistically even get these days? She's been out of the nursing field for what, 6 years or so? Even if she maintained her license I still don't see how she would be up to date. And her behavior seen on reality television the small bits she did on nursing taking her kids to a unit or something was terrrible.

Who would want to hire her with all her drama as it is anyway?

Best you can hope for Kate is that there might be a 50% coupon on bodyguard protection.

OUCH! Fired via public letter! How is she going to spin this?!

I'm willing to bet that Coupon Cabin was sick and tired of her going on shows/interviews & not saying one damn word to promote the company she "worked" for - plus, she was probably demanding a bunch of free crap like limos rides/free meals etc.

What in the hell did she ever really do for Coupon Cabin anyway? Write the worst blog posts in history? Give them negative press?

This should be a HUGE signal to her that she is very difficult to work with. I mean, REALLY - how many jobs do you have to be let go of & how many people have "to leave you" before you get it?!

Their list of charities is impressive and child oriented. I plan to write a good old fashioned thank you note and include a donation check.

Maybe someday we can buy Scott Kluth and Robert Hoffman a tall, cool glass of Rumspringa. Heroes!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I'm guessing she expected them to fund her entire lifestyle like TLC did. Put money on store cards, etc. They rightly just wanted to pay her a fair salary a maybe pay for her travel when it was about CC and that's it. God know how many emails were exchanged about all this. Too bad Robert doesn't have those!

I think a wealthy person can write credibly about how to save. If anything that's how they got to be wealthy. I think the problem is when they are being unauthentic by trying to pretend they need to save, or shafting others while spending on themselves. That's exactly how Kate's blogs came across--lies and shafting. It has never been attractive and they finally cut her off.

______________________

Exactly. I was thinking the same thing. There is a way to do this and still sound credible. I guess her support staff just didn't know how to help her or advise her in the way to write a blog that is authentic in every way.

Then again, I'm more inclined to believe that her snottiness and diva ways had more to do with the firing than anything else. When you read those journal entries in Robert's book, it's quite clear that the self-entitlement is so over-the-top that she doesn't care who she steps on as long as she gets her own ways.
This time it backfired and she got called out on it...big time.

In Milo's pea-sized brain, does she ever consider WHY the media hates Kate as she claims? Do you ever see the media hate on, oh, Betty White, for example?

Yes, Milo. Blame the media. Blame Jon. Blame CC. Blame TLC. Blame the weather. Blame Henry the farmer. Blame Shoka. Blame Fabio. Blame everything and everyone, but for heaven's sakes, don't even consider the fact that Kate is a narcissistic mess who alienates everyone except delusional sheeple who are incapable of opening their eyes because they are too stupid to make it to their annual sheep shearing.

It drives me crazy when the fans pretend it's just negativity for negativity sake. Perhaps CC looked into the real reasons for it. Scott is a smart guy. He's not going to bend to the whim of a few hate tweets. What a good CEO would do however is find out WHY this is happening. Moreover Scott also said her own posts were an issue, and that has nothing to do with what any of us said. Kate wrote them!

Who the hell is her support staff? What is a support staff? Just proves she doesn't do anything by herself. I wonder if she wipes her own ass. Sorry, I know that's gross.

Took my gorgeous grandson to Christmas Tree Shop today and bought him a great pirate costume (hat, eye patch, tunic with attached billowy sleeves, pants with attached boot covers and a sash) for $9.99. He's taking a nap in it right now. He loves it. Oops, he just got up. Gotta go.

PoohBear said...

Based on Kate's first tweet o' the day, I wonder if she knew that they planned to post a letter on the website. Her tweet kinda makes it seem like she did not or at the very least not the kind of letter that it was.

Good old Milo. The letter was pretty clear that she was fired due to HER actions or inactions, not those of anyone else (ie: based solely on comments).

I'm sure if Kate was raking in the money and doing a good job promoting, that they would overlook negative comments from haters and the media because it wouldn't be effecting their bottom line or their work environment.

They might want to be careful poking Mr. Kluth too hard with a sharp stick. I'm sure he hasn't signed a CA and it looks like he's probably willing to speak up to protect CC if necessary.

localyocul said...

My sides hurt. I have never in my life revelled at someone's misfortune but it's all of her own doing. I was always infuriated by the way she was tweeted like the victim after the divorce despite how she had acted on the show. This is Karma. So much for "I've changed".

Someone mentioned a tweet about her doing a Nick commercial. I hope it was the tweet the other day from that noboogers. If she bounces right into that I'll blow a gasket.

What are the RECENT events that led to this firing? Interesting...

wayward said...

♫♪"Oh Happy Daaaayyyyy.... Oh Happy Daaaayy"♫♪

I am going to follow the rest of the crowd over to CC to thank that man personally.

Mr. Kluth smacked her down. No nicey-nice "we've decided to part ways" BS. He point blank called her out for being fake. For example, she used his site to give some of the most skinflint-y money saving Easter tips you could ever imagine- then HIRES TWO PEOPLE TO FILL AND HIDE THE KIDS EASTER EGGS!!!! WTF!!!!

From RadarOnline "An insider at the company exclusively tells RadarOnline.com that Kate was "difficult to work with, often making outrageous demands and just didn't fit in with the company as a whole."

Did we not say when she got this job, that there was potential for her to expand it and turn it into something long lasting? Key word being "potential." However, this is Kate and we knew she would be her usual hateful, difficult, impossible self and try to use CC as her sugar Daddy, just like she used TLC/Discovery. Even when she was supposed to be promoting them, she just couldn't do it.

Thank you Mr. Kluth, I will be putting CC back on my bookmarks again. You are just one of the many who didn't know how to help Kate, and for that I salute you!

She is really seeing what we have all been wanting to see, a really nasty person with no redeeming qualities, brought down by herself. She needed no help from haters or Jon or anyone, she is doing this all to herself. She has nothing coming up, this is just her usual MO. She is poison now and even Milo and CJ can't save her now. I just wonder what she will do to her kids. It's scary to think about.

"De-aging" just isn't working, is it? All this "support team" business is just crap. Save the kids' money, Kate, and support yourself. No one is falling for the junk that drips out of your mouth or pen. Obviously, she let down CC and the CEO is not happy. That letter was direct and he wanted it to be seen by the public. That man cares what we think. Surprise, someone in a place of authority over Kate, really cares that she is not authentic. Fleecing, grifting, begging, pandering, and lying might work for a brief time, but it will not stand up to the truth. Hopefully, this decision will help
CouponCabin prosper.

My bet is Kate got into a "discussion" with a few of the other CC employees. We all know how those go.

"YOU! Over here. Quit playing at the copy machine and come help me NOW. When I say come, you better be running. I need FAT FREE @Coffee_Mate. Don't you know that? Where's the grocery buying man? Make him a list of what we need. ORGANIC water only! Why doesn't anybody but me know how to organize and run things?"

Pull that kind of stuff enough times and nobody will find your blogs very interesting. They will just hate you.

And, the idea of telling people to go jump in their pool for cheap summer fun.....buy a commercial grade meat slicer for cheap lunch meats....don't do Halloween for a cheap halloween....get friends to do the labor when they come for Thanksgiving dinner, which they contributed to.... well, all that together makes her blog basically inauthentic.

I'm only surprised it took CC this long.

I also think that since Ms Cryder was not having her "needs" met by CC and so she purposefully did not mention them on her free "trips". Did she bring them up on Andy's show?

She's paid to promote....yet she doesn't. On Katie C, I don't think she was the one that brought up CC or SGK.

Kate Gosselin was just fired from her blogging gig at CouponCabin.com, RadarOnline.com is first to report.

Um, no ROL. 15 Minutes was the first to report!

I'd like to know what outrageous demands she made. Did she expect them to pay Stevie for providing security when she ran for CC? Did she write out a menu for room service in the 4-star hotels and expect them to pay for Kobe dinners at upscale restaurants? Did they pay for her new running pants because she didn't check the weather before running?

So...Milo wasn't aware of Kate's possible termination? You mean that Kate didn't share the pending news before it happened? Milo's "close and intimate" relationship with Kate must be deteriorating. Milo better hop to it and come up with some new ways to explain how she was left out of Kate's close circle of confidants on this one. After all, she knew that someone petted Shoka yesterday, but didn't know that Kate was being given the ax.

At minimum Kate should have mentioned cc in every interview and given the web site. I only recall her doing that once or twice in all the interviews she has done since last year. It's not acceptable.

It really sounds like she had no idea this was coming since she was just posting a blog post yesterday. Maybe she had just faxed her bills for her NYC jaunt to them and Scott's eyes popped out of his head.

Wowser said...

So will CC post a million pictures of them taking her picture down off the wall like they showed a million pictures of putting it up? I KNEW this would happen this month...maybe that's why she had the oddest expression on her face when Andy referred to her as a "blogger"...she acted like she didn't like that...I thought it was because she thinks it's beneath her and too mediocre...NOW I think it's because she already knew she was being canned and that Andy referred to her as a blogger and she knew she wasn't EVEN that anymore

Ingrid said...

I believe it was her lack of promoting CC plus her delusions of grandeur, and high demands and snottiness. She wants alot for doing nothing but 'appearing'. We all noticed how seldom she promotes those who pay her.

Back when she said she was skipping a marathon or whatever I figured RNR had dumped her and she had connived CC into sponsoring her to run.
I will not be surprised if she suddenly announces that she is just too busy with her kids and other projects to keep going to marathons. (Unless some other fool company picks her up by listening to her lies)

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think I figured it out. Kate wants all the perks and glamour of being a celeb without any of the actual work behind it. She fails to realize most celebs work 80 hours a week and often more to get all these perks. Little of it happens just because.

SeeSaw said...

I was thinking about TLC lifting the veil and showing Kate's true colors during the last episodes of K+8, culminating in the bitchfest on the RV trip.

Wow! Imagine being not just fired from 2 jobs but being publicly flogged before, during and after. I think she's worse than we or even Robert know.

And strap on the armor and pour a big rumspringa ladies (and gent), I think it's going to be a bumpy night here.

I think Scott Kluth was snarking on Kate when he mentioned "support staff" in his letter. I think he was talking about the nannies, chef, gardeners, Stevie, etc. If he was talking about the staff that was helping Kate with her blog, then from the sound of his letter they would have been fired also because he was wishing them well. I don't think that happened.

I think support staff were the people like Julie Kate used to make all her unreasonable demands for her. I bet that's another issue they had, it was hard to deal directly with Kate. She made herself too important. For a guy like Scott with his background, I doubt he has the time or patience to constantly go through managers and assistants.

Wow, this is fantastic news. Will Kate still be running in LA in a couple of weeks? Was supposed to represent Coupon Cabin. LOL. Maybe she'll have to force Rock 'n Roll to pick up her tab (and Stevie's). Will be interesting to see.

While CouponCabin may have ended its relationship with Kate Gosselin, CouponCabin has not ended its support in the fight against breast cancer. CouponCabin is proud to announce an additional donation of $10,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

Where was this posted? I don't see it at the CC site.

WHOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO!! What great news! Oh Katie, tell us again how everyone who meets you in person just loves you?!

----------------------

Our of everything she has claimed (and lied about) that one takes the cake. She's a real pistol...wouldn't give you the time of day if her life depended on it.

Kate loves pink! Now she has TWO pink slips to go with her 8th pink iphone!!

I think Mr. Kluth came right out and said Kate was fake. If she didn't align with the authenticity of CC I guess in a round about way he called her out as being fake. Last time I checked (and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) the opposite of authentic is fake.

Hmmm...I'm not seeing the part about donating $$ to the Komen Fdtn.

All the internet gossip sites that "ignored" the journal entries in Robert's book are leaping on the Coupon Cabin news.

Maybe they were afraid of the legal complications for repeating passages from the book and they have just been waiting for some other negative news to report. Just biding their time to make Kate a target.

Looks as if the safety has been taken off the shot gun now!

Haven't read the comments here yet, but IMO Kate just doesn't know how to take advantage of all the opportunities she HAS BEEN GIVEN. And all her PR help isn't helping her public persona. They need to shut her up, get her off twitter, stop trying to promote herself as mother of the year, because she isn't faking anyway. She could have done thing awesome as a blogger, but didn't. She doesn't live in the real world of pinching pennies and really living on a budget. If she did, she would have all the excess in her life, 3 vehicles, heating a pool in October for a one night bday party buying a $500+ meat slicer. She could actually do something. worthwhile for a charity without promoting herself. On Bravo she didn't promote CC at all, and they were watching. It's just not a few negative comments on CC that did her in - they were blocking comments, can you imagine what didn't get posted.

I hope Jon has the kids tonight. Kate has probably been in NYC and Chicago for the last week - thank goodness for the kids.

If Kate doesn't run in the Rock N Roll 1/2 marathon on the 28th it will be becasue she's decided to be selfless and stay home and do Halloween with her children....NOT....it will be becasue they expect her to pay her own way since CC is no longer sponsoring her! Is RNR still one of her "sponsors"? I wonder if they'd pick up the tab.

"Kate's probably excited that she "made" TMZ, lol, just like she gets excited that she's "trending" - even though it's always for something really negative. ;-P"

**********************

She likes to be in the media, even if it's negative publicity, but I think that this time, with Scott's letter showing up on so many sites, this is not something that is going to make her happy. All of this came on top of the child and animal abuse allegations, and it's not something that is going to make her sit up and cheer. You can only sustain so much negative publicity before something's gotta give.

I think Scott Kluth was snarking on Kate when he mentioned "support staff" in his letter. I think he was talking about the nannies, chef, gardeners, Stevie, etc. If he was talking about the staff that was helping Kate with her blog, then from the sound of his letter they would have been fired also because he was wishing them well. I don't think that happened
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I think you're right. Someone who has a personal chef, bodyguard, housecleaners, poolboys, lawn boys, nannies and assistants has no business telling anyone how to save money. Those people could somewhat be justified if Kate actually had a full time job in the entertainment business. She doesn't. She doesn't even do her own bulk grocery shopping. She has people to wait on her hand and foot while she does??????? She is not relatable to the average woman in any way.

I'm not sure why CC didn't figure this out in the beginning, but better late than never!

KAT said...

Milo has the biggest BALLS I've ever seen...she has regrouped and is blaming them for not having a "sit down" to explain what she should have done differently...BTW..loved the "drunken rampage" remark.....I can honestly picture it...She's probably cutting a tree down with a hatchet as we speak......
