Kate Gosselin Clears Up Rumors On Kids’ Expulsion From School

Kate Gosselin responds to rumors that two of her eight children, 6-year-old Collin and Alexis, were expelled from school. She sat down with Entertainment Tonight to set the record straight.

She explained, “Two of my children, no, are being tutored at home, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school, doing the identical curriculum.”

The Kate Plus 8 star added, “The pressure was getting to them. You have the divorce anger mixed in with that. They need some breathing time. The goal is to get them back into school as soon as possible.”

For now, she’s planning to enjoy Thanksgiving day with her children. She and ex-husband Jon Gosselin will be dividing time with them.

“We have been able to work out the holiday time peacefully,” she says. “So I will have the first half, he will have the second half, and, we just take it year by year, and holiday by holiday.”

      I think you should get into therapy too and work out your anger towards JOHN. Your kids got it from somewhere and they only are getting out what they see. They need your love and respect too. They are truly beautiful children.

    I’m sure it’s helping the children tremendously for their mother to go on national tv and talk about their problems and the divorce. Especially since their friends at school are all old enough to watch it and so are their parents. She needs to stop being a celebrity and try being a mom.

    I am sure that in her crazy head she thinks she deserves the motherhood of the year award. I know that the following is a very horrible thing to say, but her children would be better off if they did not see her for a very long time. Her SIX YEAR OLDS were expelled. What could be worse to show that she is not being a good parent?

    For the full interview and Video go to http://www.celebitchy.com were Kate says that her kids would fall apart if the show ended doesn’t she mean that she well fall. I think it says a lot that her kids would fall apart if the show ended, no child should get so used to cameras fallowing them around 24/7 that they would fall apart if it stop. This woman is a real piece of work and it’s sad that she doesn’t see what she is doing to her kids to keep herself in the spot light.

    Why are these kids still in kindergarten when they are turning 7 in 6 months?

    • Jolene

      This is what I want to know too. Most kids, in Australia at least, are in second grade at 6/7.

        In most of Europe kids start at age 7 – but the schools there are not as easy as in the US. But these children don’t live in Europe, I think they are behind because their parents don’t spend enough time with them (and honestly how can they when they have so many).

        6 years old in second grade in australia is if you are advanced or a late 6 about to turn 7. in australia it is Reception (kindergarten ) = 5, 1st grade = 6 , 2nd grade = 7 yrs and so on. depending on when your b’day is ,is how they determain grade. being 6 in kindergarten is not rare.

    • Lolly

      Because they were premmies so they started late. That’s itneresting that you are in second grade at 6 in Aus, in the US you can’t enter kindergarden unless you’ve already turned 5.

    I have never seen a person put her own needs before her children to this degree. She wants to be famous and she has enough jerks, like Entertainment Tonight which I call the Donny and Marie show for the past year, keep giving her the spotlight which she is holding on to for dear life. She is unbelievably selfish and maybe just this time Kate would be telling the truth about her kids being upset if they weren’t on camera because if the camera’s weren’t there only those children know what their real mother is like and maybe they know if the show were to be cancelled they would be back full time with the mother from hell.

    i think the kids biggest issue is seeing their parents go from two seemingly “normal” parents to complete strangers. everything about jon and kate is different both physically and personality wise. i’m sure they just want their mom and dad back!

    It’s funny how we all think we know this family personally when none of us have probably ever seen them person-to-person. All parents have struggles–she has eight children, all are thriving–she does deserve a “mother of the Year” award!

      LOL, on what planet?

  • Anonymous

    LOL! She also says she needs to do the show because she needs to make money to support her kids. It’s like, why don’t you get a real job like all the rest of us. You just had to have more kids so stop whining about it!

    Truth be told, Kate is not a saint, but John is the real looser here. Everyone seems to be beating up on Kate. Please share the blame with her cheating ex-husband, who couldn’t keep his penis in his pants and didn’t have the respect enough for Kate or his children to end the marriage without scandal. To everyone who suggest that Kate gets a “real job” and take care of her family, what profession do you suggest. It takes a pretty penny to raise 8 kids. Perhaps, she should turn to the oldest profession in the book. I think she is doing what she can with what she has been dealt. If only you critics could walk in her shoes for one day, I’m sure that you would scream like little *itches.
