Kate Gosselin lies.
It's unclear if she's delusional and believes the nonsense that comes out of her mouth, or she's deliberately trying to do spin control, but either way, she lies.
Not only did she try to deny Collin and Alexis Gosselin were expelled from school, the kids' situation is actually worse than what has been previously reported.
THE GOOD OLD DAZE: Like their mom's reverse mullet / dead opossum weave, the children's carefree times and smiling faces are things of the past.
One of the expelled Gosselin kids physically harmed an adult at the school TWO TIMES, creating a situation left administrators no choice but to purse expulsion.
The nature and extent of the adult's injuries are unclear, but the situation was severe enough that it contributed heavily to the school's decision to expel them.
Both of Gosselin children were also abusive to other children in the school - beyond telling them Santa doesn't exist - creating an untenable situation overall.
On TV Kate was asked: "Two of them rumored to be kicked out of school. Is that true?" She answered: "No. Two of my children are being tutored at home."
That lie has deepened the rift between Kate and ex-husband Jon Gosselin, who has been trying to move on with his normal life, girlfriend and job in IT.
"Both Jon and Kate were sent a letter from the school explaining that despite their best efforts, the staff reached a point at which they had to request the children enroll elsewhere," a source said. "It's clear Kate did not tell the truth."
Kate's denial of their problems has left many people perplexed.
"Both Alexis and Colin received three full weeks of intensive special treatment," revealed the source. "It became apparent that the pair needed intensive assistance to help them with their social, emotional and academic needs."
"The demand on the teachers was just too great."
The problems with Alexis and Colin has added increased strain to Jon and Kate's relationship as they decide how to help the kids thrive going forward.
"They can't just be tutored, at home: these kids need to be integrated with other children," the source continues. "Jon and his girlfriend Ellen Ross take them to public parks to play with other kids and they tell them to go make friends."
"It's clear they need to develop their social skills."
Compounding their woes is the constant attention of paparazzi.
"Collin actually covered his face when he was having his school photograph taken because he didn't understand," said the source. "Here you have children in rural Pennsylvania and they don't understand why people are taking pictures."
"Kate needs to get on the same page as Jon: he doesn't want them to have those pressures during their childhood, because they both need to live with the decision that they decided to do the show in the first instance."
