Jon and Kate Plus Hate?
Beware the reality-show star curse…
If Nick and Jessica taught us nothing else (well, besides that Chicken of the Sea isn’t actually poultry), it’s that inviting cameras into your marriage is a recipe for disaster.
This latest on-screen marital mismatch is between Jon and Kate Gosselin and their eight little tax deductions. First Jon gets accused of stepping out on shrewish Kate Gosselin with some nubile young grade-school teacher. Now rumors are swirling that Kate’s been banging one of her security detail for months. (Who knew reality stars even warranted security? I can’t imagine accosting Daisy of Love at the grocery store. Can you?)
Of course, any sort of celebrity strife brings all the embarrassing relations scrambling out of the woodwork. RadarOnline has an interview with Kate’s brother and sister-in-law, saying the marriage has been over for six months. Kevin Krieder, the brother dearest, also adds that his “sister Kate wants to be a talk-show host, and she really is starting to believe her own press.”
Meanwhile, the other woman in the sordid story–Deanna Humel–also has a chatty brother. Though Deanna disputes his tale, the brother claims “The walls are thin. Let’s just say that. I mean, no one wants to hear his sister having sex, let alone with a married dude who’s, like, almost twice her age and who has eight kids and a maybe-crazy wife. Ick. Nast.”
Though I suppose we’ll have to tune in and actually sit through their show to find out how this all plays out, one lesson I think we can all take from this is that if you ever get famous, make sure your big-mouth brothers are on the payroll.
