Kate Gosselin Fired From CouponCabin Blogging Gig for Sketchy Reasons

This Just In 12

Kate GosselinBam! That's the sound of the door that was slammed firmly shut behind Kate Gosselin as CouponCabin fired her today from her job as a blogger for the site. She started the job 11 months ago, and we had such high hopes for her in this role. Then today, with no warning, the gig was up.

On the site where her blog normally appears is a letter from Scott Kluth, founder and CEO of the company. In it he informs readers of the decision to "discontinue Ms. Gosselin's feature blog."  He say her contributions have garnered both positive attention and criticism but her run is over. As for why she got the axe, he gets a little cagey.

He stated:

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.

A series of recent events, huh? There have been plenty of controversial moves Kate has made over the years for sure, especially during the contentious divorce from her husband and in some of the choices she's made regarding her children. Lately, however, the biggest "scandal" I've noted is her posting a photo of her 11-year-old daughter Maddy in a pair of high heels.

No, not everybody likes her -- in fact, people are having an online party rejoicing over this firing -- but lately, she's been pretty tame. Unless ... the site is freaked out by her whole de-aging superpowers that she recently professed. I mean that is pretty crazy if true, and likely a lie if she isn't some genetic freak, but I don't really see what either has do with her blogging about coupons. It's not like she'd be the first person to lie about a little nip and tuck.

Who knows what the real reason is for her firing. Maybe they have someone hotter and more likable lined up to do the gig -- some like Mama June from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo perhaps? How perfect would she be as a replacement?

As for Kate, she hasn't spoken out about the firing yet, though earlier today she did post a positive tweet that read: "Good afternoon!I'm alive!I've been super busy working away!I'm having lots of fun and can't wait to share!No worries..we will chat soon! XO." Until then ...

Why do you think Kate Gosselin was fired from this gig?

I'm going to guess that she probably acted there the way she acted on Dancing with the Stars and was a bitch, and her personality and inability to work with others well is why she got fired. It probably started there and they found something small but something they could work with to fire her.

"Unless ...the site is freaked out by her whole de-aging superpowers that she recently professed." Just what I was thinking, Julie. lol

im thinking that they used her for her name... they did all these promotions and gigs these past couple of weeks, and now they decided that the gig was up, 


personally i like kate, maybe not everything that she has done said in the past but she is human like the rest of us.. 


i can honestly say that coupon cabin is not all that because everythime that i tried to use a coupon that they promoted it would tell me that it was expired..and try to reccommend another.. one of lesser value i actually got tired of it and stopped using the site.. im thinking that other have had this issue also and maybe kate became aware of this issue and spoke up? who knows why she was fired. but i wish her the best in whatever she does next!

Didn't use their site, didn't read her blog, BUT it sounds like they determined the cost of her exceeded the benefit she provided.  Also as stated above she may have became too difficult to deal with, who knows?  I think they should do a new show called:  People who get addicted to fame from being on a reality show!..........her and her husband are prime examples of what happens when your reality gets skewed by the temporay fame and fortune of being thrust into fame, not because you earned it, but because you were a spectacle to be observed like a freak show at the circus.......jMO

So what I got from that statement is that she's a liar and a bitch. Both things we already knew...


I will say that it sucks when anyone is fired from a job in these economic times. Hopefully with her next job, she will remember that she is mother and provider to 8 kids instead of a reality show diva. Still not sure why she doesn't go back to nursing but I'm sure it has something to do with that previously mentioned "diva" comment.

Why is this not a surprise.

Sounds to me like perhaps (1) she was a diva at the "office" (what employer wishes a departing employee's "support staff" well?) and (2) that she had no idea what she was doing so she either (a) made it up or (b) had her contributions ghost-written by said support staff.

Anyone who read any of her blogs would understand.

im not a fan of CoupinCabin, they dont help ME out much, but from what i know of this lady from a tv show here and there, did she actually USE coupons? does she actually believe in working a budget for her family??  does she HAVE TO work a budget???  i mean, seriously, i dont take cooking advice from RRay because she cooks for 2 and has way more ingredientson hand than i EVER will so why woud i take budgeting advice from a lady who doesnt even know what that means in REAL LIFE ????
