Kate Gosselin Gave Jon $5 Daily Allowance

Kate Gosselin Gave Jon $5 Daily Allowance

For the FIFTH week in a row, Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom Kate Gosselin takes the cover of Us Weekly (See: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4).

“[Kate] used to give [husband Jon] only $5 to spend, and if he was out and needed more money, she would give him hell,” says his former employer at Style Craft Corp, David Rothermel. “She came in raising hell [one day in the office] because Jon‘s father was supposed to bring her lunch and he was late. She got up out of bed rest to come in and yell at anyone who would listen!”

The mag claims the Gosselins later publicly concocted a story that Jon was fired because the company didn’t want to insure the sextuplets.

Almost 10 million people tuned in on Monday to watch the season premiere of J&K+8. Will you be tuning in next week??

    How is this anything new? Anyone who has ever watched the show can see the “prison” that is Jon’s life. TLC is milking this bish for all it’s worth.

    US weekly is a crap tabloid magazine along with Star, In touch and Ok. They always make blah rumors all the time with their so called unreliable sources. Only dumbfcuks would believe what they are writing and would buy their magazine.

    Does US Weakly have issues with this couple? They are harping on this story and are probably making things worse!! J&K should stop doing this show and see if they can work it out. And don’t forget there are 8 kids involved!!!

    people are dumb if they don’t believe this crap. i’m sure these magazines are really exaggerating everything to draw in readers, but i wouldn’t put any of this past kate. how can so many people think she is actually the victim? have we not been watching the same show for the past four seasons? kate treats jon like he’s a child. i never hear her say anything nice to the poor man. she just puts him down constantly. it’s horrible. i feel bad for him. i am not one to condone cheating at all, but if he did, i don’t blame him at all. i got sick of hearing the whole “i’m doing this alone” crap. she’s not doing anything alone, she’s got a whole crew of people who work for tlc who are doing most of the work for her. what really disgusts me about her is the fact that jon has clearly come to his senses and realizes that all this media attention is not good for their family. it was clear from the season premiere that he is no longer comfortable being on this show. they need to stop it. kate needs to get over her arrogant self and stop exploiting her children and letting this show ruin her marriage. i hope this woman comes to her senses and realizes that the happiness of her children is more important than fame.

    I love the show… I love Kate and I don’t care who says it but I don’t feel it’s staged. Do I think they get everything for free? The trips… definitely – they promote those places for the trips therefore, they should get it for free – it’s only fair. Maybe she should cut down on the work but I truly believe she loves her kids and everything is for them. If Jon and Kate didn’t get the trips they got… They wouldn’t go anywhere. I mean, they have 8 KIDS. No matter what job Jon got, I doubt they would have enough money for college, clothes, food, trips, etc, and the trips aren’t just vacations – they are so educational. I think the media needs to lay off and Aunt Jodi needs to lay off BIG time. They are doing a good job – everyone goes thru rocky times, and yes they have been a little seperated at the party and events like that on last night’s episode but the fact they were there – TOGETHER – says a lot. Kate nor Jon HAD to be at the Kids party, they could have told a babysitter to do it but they were there. I’m for them. I’m not for all the media and aunt jodi. period. And if anyone is ruining the kids… it’s the media AND aunt jodi. If aunt jodi cares so much about the kids, she wouldn’t bring this all up – and that’s my piece.

    dfgfdg Says:

    Yes, the boss has come out in an article way before this fiasco to say that Jon was fired because he paid more attention to his “family business” than his work, not because of the insurance thing. So yes, the Gosselins lied to make themselves look good. Surprise!

    dfgfdg Says:

    And Melissa: While you’re screaming your head off and typing incoherently, please, STOP USING COLLEGE AS AN EXCUSE. If you’re such a fan, you’ll know that numerous articles came out when the children were born that they have college funds established for them by the state of PA. This is something the Gosselins omitted to tell sheeple like you

    1. Its actually 10million +, add people from Europe who watched it on youtube (like me), or somewhere else.
    2. For the first time in my life I prayed for someone so distant and unrelated, like this family, but I felt an urge to do so. Why? Dont know.
    3…dfgfdg….I really didnt know about the college funds and if its true, all this makes me even sicker!
    I mean, enough with saying shes doing it all for the kids – they have the amazing house, enoug space, jeez what more do they need. Designer clothes? The kids would love her even if they lived in a cardboard box and ate cheap bread. As she once said herself – you could easily take all their toys away and they wouldnt even notice, they have enough company to play with and have a great imagination, they dont need all that stuff.
    I think Kate has seriously forgotten shes not that special! 8 kids is not that rare after all! We can help her, but its not our responsibility to support her luxurious lifestyle.

    Why are some people insisting that Kate does the show to pay for her children’s college funds? Kate is an RN. So much for her education. She will never work as an RN again. Jon began his college education in the computer field, and dropped out. Why would their children value education by the way they are raised? They will grow up believing that everything is free if you are on tv.

    Kates Pr team Says:

    I see Kate’s PR team is out in full force to deny these claims. Well I say, where there’s smoke, there’s fire and I think there is good reason to believe US Weekly.

    Anyone who’s watched the program knows Kate is a shrew. Those poor children with a monster mommy.

    The last show I watched was showing the new house they had just moved in to. Yes I believe the story of the $5.00 due to the fact the way she went off over him buying a showerhead without a coupon-

    Shaking my head Says:

    This article takes the cake. The media needs to gather up their cameras and go home. Of course, THAT won’t happen because the magazines SELL! That being said, I do have some thoughts on all this obvious misery and sadness we watched on Monday evening. I think this couple had a PLAN right from the start with Kate being the “front” person as Jon was working. He probably said, “Sure, go ahead.” never dreaming they really would find a place for Kate’s ideas (TLC). No doubt he went along with it as they really were making money. Then he quit (or got fired…who really knows) his job. THAT is when Kate’s obvious attacks on Jon really picked up…it was pretty clear when watching the program that Jon became even more “laid back” than usual. It became pretty clear that the plan would be HE would be the “at home” person…the errand runner, etc. and she would get her writing career up and running. The problem is, Jon’s laid back personality along with his passive-agression went into high gear and that only worsened the situation. He almost seemed to enjoy getting the high powered Kate wound up and, if anyone was paying attention, he said some pretty snide things himself not to mention, he would make remarks about the kids noise and the cooped up stress he was feeling. Jon is no innocent bystander here but he is making every effort to make Kate look like the bad guy. The man should have gone back to work or to school and finished up that degree. He needed an outlet…and I do not mean meeting his women friends at all hours of the night at bars. I mean something adult that he felt good about and his kids could look up to him. Kate was smart enough to realize that this show had a limited lifetime…especially with the kids in school…so she got the writing career under way. All Jon does is complain that he cannot write. So Jon, stop whinning, grow up, and find your own outlet. Even Kate has stated that she has made a million suggestions only to have Jon have one excuse after another. I get how she feels…I would be just as frustrated as she obviously is! Kate is not going to stand around and wait for Jon to grow up. He needs to stop feeling sorry for himself, pull it together, sign up for something ADULT, and get going. The “little” kids are going to kindegarten this Fall and he will have more time on his hands than he knows what to do with. Plus, Jon would do himself a lot of good NOT to pick out events like the fifth birthday to go into reverse…definitely not smart. Just gives Kate something to harp on.

    She always said they was getting the big house for the children and them- They needed more space she said- Then it showed her looking out the kitchen window and instead of saying all ours- What did she say- she said something like all mine -this is all mine as far as the eyes can see- or something like that. I knew that the show was for her agenda at that moment I stopped watching the show. I feel sorry for the children.

    Jon was not fired. He quit his job two years ago (thats what he said on monday

    emily Says:

    Am I the only one that thinks J & K are staging this? The publicity they have received has been outrageous and has turned them into superstars, so to speak. Their ratings are way up. They could both walk away from the show if they wanted to. Even though they are under contract, there are always ways to wiggle out of them with an attorney helping them. I mean TLC would like like total asses if they forced them to continue if they both claimed they needed to step down because it was ripping their family apart. They still choose to be in the spotlight. They are playing us by setting the stage so their ratings will continue to soar. And guess what, if they continue to soar, they get more $$ !! Duh.

    Shelby Says:

    I’ve watched many episodes. She can be bossy, but she HAS to be. If she were wimpy like her husband, those kids would run all over her.

    She’s not perfect, but nobody is.

    any woman who actively decides to implant 6 embryos should be in the looney bin. she has issues of control from the start. she trapped a very young boy into her her infertility mess & is getting upset because he won’t take her cr*p any more. jon never takes cheapshots at kate like she does. real women never speak to people they love the way she does and her misery is constant.
