Kate Gosselin Writes "Letters" to Her Kids That Are Kind of More for the Rest of Us


Up next in what I would refer to as the Kate Gosselin comeback tour, except that she never really goes away: the release of her latest book, I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Children on Love, Faith and Family. Of course, if the letters were really to her children, they’d be sitting in a drawer somewhere, or on her hard drive. But they’re not. They’re for the rest of us, which is why you’ll be able to buy them on Tuesday.

So what does Kate have to tell us? Well, Life&Style got its hands on an advance copy, and released a few excerpts. She’d like the book to sell, of course, so she talks about her split from he-who-must-not-be-named, and the effects it had on the rest of the family.

For instance, she writes to Collin, “”I will never leave you. I know that all the recent events in our family structure have greatly upset you, maybe you most of all. When I leave for work, I will always come back.”

In a similar vein, she writes Aaden, “I do not possess the skills to father you. But I will do everything I can to show you the way.”

At this point, I am racking my brain, trying to figure out what else she can do to compromise these kids’ privacy, and I’m stumped. Oh, I got it! Another TV show!

Lucky for them, Kate already has one in development.
