Us Magazine’s cover story this week revolves around Kate Gosselin’s sense of entitlement. Gosselin’s former nurse, Angela Krall, alleges Kate fired 40 nurses and nurse’s aides in the span of three months before settling on her. Oh and there’s this:
A 2005 Associated Press story reported that a pre-TV Gosselin had petitioned the state to extend payments for Krall, whose fees were first paid by Medicaid (Jon was unemployed; Medicaid provides limited assistance to premature babies).
“Kate Gosselin said she feels society has a responsibility to help with the children, since modern medicine promotes the use of fertility drugs, which can lead to multiple births,” the AP reported.
While Kate praised Krall in the same story, Krall reveals that Kate posted “demeaning” signs in every room detailing rules, and fired one woman on the spot for washing her hands in the kitchen instead of the bathroom. “Kate flipped,” says Krall. “She thought it was cross-contamination.”
That level of perfectionism also tore her apart from her father, Kenton Kreider, a pastor, after he gave her cribs donated by his parishioners.
“They didn’t match and Kate rejected them,” says a family source. “Things like that caused a rift.” Krall, who says all six babies ended up with matching cribs, tells Us Kate “thought they were owed stuff. The money factor was huge.”
Society is responsible for supporting her children because modern medicine made it easier for people who couldn’t have children and who wanted children to have children. Of course, she conveniently glosses over the fact that it was her decision to have children. That’s a pretty ballsy statement. You know what else is ballsy? Telling Kate Gosselin to fuck off.
