Some Stuff About Jon And Kate To Catch The Newbies Up With The Real Story...
This Is ONE Of The Reasons WE "Hate" Kate...Read full article here: Great Article for the newbies @ Pressi
Jon and Kate lived in their First house in Dauphin Avenue in Reading.
Jons Dad paid for it ALL. Jons dad also paid for the fertility treatments and gave them $30,000.00
cash in the bank.
After the sextuplets were born they had 200 volunteers and free nursing and free healthcare and free diapers and formula and many other products and thousands in free food and Cash Cards.
Then Jon and Kate started out going on CHURCH speaking tours about 3 years ago..
Theyd do a few a month.
They charged (dont quote me its been awhile) $4000.00 and LOVE OFFERINGS
Love offerings usually came to about $2000.00
Theyd tell a sad tale to the churches about having no money and having to search thru sofas for mortgage money and having to make do....(ALL while having their home paid for and $30,000.00 in the bank and everything free and paid for) and people would pass the plate and fill it up thinking this family of 10 had no money.
They usually drove themselves and paid for their own hotels. Plus they sold autographed pics
in the church foyer for $20 for biig or $10 for small CASH pics
A nice lil $8-9 K haul for an afternoon of work.
More and more viewers were catching on to the AMOUNT of speaking engagements Kate was
doing and NOT being at home being that SUPERMOM she purported to be.
The list of speaking engagements on their home site was ENORMOUS!
About 2 years ago when PR got involved Kates PR agent Julie May took the Calendar of Engagements
off their site and slowly CANCELLED many LOW paying engagements, saying "Kate Gosselin overbooked and needs to be home with her kids being a mom"
