I’m really not in the habit of defending Kate Gosselin; I still believe she owes our nation an apology for her “Paparazzi” performance on “Dancing with the Stars” last year. But I’m going to make an exception in this case. Reportedly, two of the Gosselin kids from “Kate Plus 8″ were expelled from school over behavioral issues. Because they are Gosselins, this is front-page tabloid news and people are blaming Kate for it.
But I actually think we should leave Kate Gosselin alone this time, and here’s three reasons why:
1. These are 6-year-old kids, not coked-up twentysomething starlets. They neither asked for the spotlight nor can turn it off. If you want to criticize Kate for her plastic surgery or whining, I’m fine with that, but these are children with evidently serious issues. Let’s not speculate over what may or may not have happened.
2. Kate wants our attention. She begs for it at every turn, and we give it to her willingly, because you either love or hate this lady. So if you really want to frustrate her, ignore her and this latest crisis.
3. We don’t know what actually happened. There’s sources speculating and whispering and off-the-record-ing, but there’s nothing official about it. So before we condemn Kate (again), let’s wait and see what the real story is.
What do you think?
