Gosselin Kids WERE Expelled & It's Worse Than We Thought

16

Kate Plus 8Though Kate Gosselin just last week vehemently denied that two of her children -- Alexis and Collin -- were expelled from school, it turns out they were. And it wasn't just for any little minor infraction, either. According to RadarOnline.com, one of the children actually physically injured an adult at the school, not just once, but twice. They also were reportedly abusive to the other children.

No wonder Kate looked so beaten down and awful when she was on the Today show last week. That's some serious stuff, but of course she denied it and talked about how life was "heaven on earth."

So now in addition to just being a fame-hungry nut who pimps her kids out to make a dime, she's a liar too?

"Both Jon and Kate were sent a letter from the head of school explaining that despite their best efforts, staff had reached a point at which they had to request the children enroll in another program," a source told RadarOnline.com. "It's clear Kate did not tell the truth."

And just when you thought America couldn't hate this woman any more.

But honestly, while I typically have no sympathy for Kate because she's brought on all these problems herself, I can at least empathize with her decision to lie about her kids' expulsion. No matter what she's done, it's her children's reputations that are on the line.

Would I try to minimize or hide something awful my kid did from the world so it wouldn't paint him in a bad light? Yes, I probably would try to deal with it as stealthy as possible. Things like that can stick with a kid for life.

Now I also wouldn't push him into the spotlight and have his whole life taped so that he was driven to the point of doing something like this. But kids do make mistakes, and I think plenty of parents would try to keep something like this from as many people as possible.

So while this revelation is shocking and really ups the level of severity of what this family is facing, I'm not adding her lying about it to the long list of reasons I think Kate Gosselin is a bad mom.

Would you lie about your child's bad behavior to protect his or her reputation?

No I don't lie but I don't have a reason to lie.  I can't say I wouldn't have done the same thing in her position though. They are probably americas most watched children. It'd be embaressing to her and her children that the whole world knew about the expulsion.

Because Kate let the camera into her life and her children lives. Anyways Kate makes the decision to let total strangers into her family life by the show. She loves the attention she gets. But when Alexis and Colin was expelled from school she wants private time to deal with it. She caused Alexis and Colin to ‘act out’.

Did anyone else watch her on Sarah Palin's Alaska? What a smug biotch. I can't stand Palin, but next to Kate the woman looked like a saint! Poor kids...

I'll echo the comments above - Poor Kids. They deserve time out of the spotlight and away from cameras.

Clearly Alexis and Colin take after their mother. LOL Sorry I couldn't help myself.

Wait a minute... you are taking Radaronline.com as a legitimate news source?  Really?  Maybe you should think twice about that. 


Also have you considered that by continuing to bring up these issues (whether or not someone else did so first), that you are contributing to the issue of keeping these children in the public spotlight?  If you are not in favor of that, then perhaps you should stop writing about this family...

Well maybe just maybe Kate is still going to be in the spotlight no matter if the stir keeps writing about Kate family. She love fame and keeps being in the spotlight no matter how much it damaged her children lives. This is her website so can write whatever she pleased if she wants to write about Kate or other issue more power to her.
