Kate Gosselin: So BULLIED By People Online!

by at . Comments

Kate Gosselin is speaking out against bullying online and revealing the "deep scars" caused by some of the cruel comments people have made about her.

Kate Gosselin Facelift

The mother of eight opened up to BullyVille in a piece titled “My Experience with Real Life and Internet Bullying.” It's about ... well, peeps bullying her.

Kate Gosselin says she was tormented in middle school, then again in recent years with “adult bullying.” Kate says simply, “I’ve been bullied. A lot."

“Most of my memories are made up of confusing emotional struggles to figure out who I was and where I fit in," says the former spouse of Jon Gosselin.

"I was definitely bullied back then and the cruel comments and mean displays are memories that have left deep scars that remain with me til this day."

"Bullying made me feel insecure, alone, ugly, powerless, and hopeless at times.”

She calls this a “horrible disease” with no cure and says bullying via the Internet became very evident after her family gained fame on Jon and Kate Plus 8.

“When my life became very public in 2006 with the airing of our show ... I was honestly surprised that ‘adult bullying’ via the Internet existed,” Kate says.

“I am a positive person by nature and the fact that people flock to the Internet to make ugly, hurtful, untrue comments about myself and my family shocked me!”

Kate says she tries to tune out the “haters” and/or turn their bullying ways around by channeling that negativity into motivation to succeed in life.

“I ignore most of the hate and lies," she insists. "Since bullies come from a place of jealousy, I try not to let any of their vile dangerous words permeate me.”

"I have better things to do. I have eight wonderful children who need a mother to show them the love and support that surrounds them, not retaliation and bitterness."

“I use my haters as my motivators. If they say I can’t do it, rest assured I WILL do it. And I won’t stop until I’ve succeeded in achieving any given goal."

What do you think of Kate's comments? Have people been too hard on her? Or is she ignoring the fact that her own actions were public and justly criticized?

Kate gosselin has become a terrifying mommy dearest. Check out the fake blonde weave, the short tight dresses, heels and plastic surgery. She's a mother of 8 kids for chrissakes. That vajayjay must be wrecked. Don't get me started about her vapid, fake, valley 'girl' affectations .... mommy dearest is delusional if she thinks she's famous for any other reason other than breeding a litter of lab rats. She has become a nasty, greedy, plastic surgeried hag who looks like JENNA JAMESON, porn star on a bad day.

It must be discouraging for Kate to try to get some publicity and find it all negative. She has to really try hard to wade through hundreds or even thousands of blogs to find but a handful of positive comments. If Kate is trying to get another tv show, putting herself out for criticism isn't the way to go. She should go back under the rock that she came from before she deceived her fertility specialist.

Yes Kate displayed behaviour that most of us did not agree with, but at the end of the day, she stuck by her children, she did the job of raising 8children to the best of her ability. Can you imagine having 8 growing children, having to feed, dress, entertain, teach, put up with whining, crying complaining, sick nights, fighting, arguing, bed time routine, and everything else that comes along with raising a child but 8 times in the same age group. All I gotta say is WOW, you go girlfriend. Parenting is a tough job, for all of you mothers and fathers out there, you know what it's like. Behind every defensive person there is perfectly logical explanation why one presents themselves that way. Unless you walked a lifetime in the shoes of one you choose to judge, nothing should matter. No body is perfect.

Isn't kate gosselin ashamed of herself. First off maybe that is why she was so good at bullying Jon every Wk on the show. We have all been bullied at some point of our lifes. The bullying that is very serious is when kids are taking there lifes. Bullying is in the news now and Kate had to figure yet another way to get herself in the news. She has no shame!! she is going to compare to herself to the bullying that these young kids are enduring!? Take care of your kids Kate and quit thinking everything is about you. Your 15 min. is up DEAL WITH IT!! & be thankful for what you had, but you didn't know how to be grateful and got more greedy each day and no one cares about you anymore!

Seriously, if you did not what the comments get out of the public eye. People with common sense keep their kids off tv for that very same purpose. I, myself, have been asked to do a pilot for a reality show but have turned it down because frankly I love my kids too much. You are not being bullied if you freely put yourself out there for the public as you do. It's the price you pay. I am sure many actors and celebs can say the very same thing. Grow up and get a real life if you can't handle being in the spot light.
