‘Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World’ Book Reveals Star’s Expensive Demands to TLC
Robert Hoffman wants everyone to know reality star Kate Gosselin is not who she appears to be on TV. The author of "Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World," continues to spew relevatory anecdotes about the mother of eight. Even with Gosselin's and TLC's lawyers sucessfully getting his e-book removed from Amazon, Hoffman refuses to back down.
Gosselin is known for her past TLC shows, "Jon and Kate Plus 8," and then eventually just, "Kate Plus 8," and most recent turn grasping at fame on "Dancing With The Stars."
We've already heard plenty about Gosselin's "demanding, abrasive personality," which got her fired form her job blogging for CouponCabin.com, according to The New York Daily News. And now a passage from Hoffman's book obtained by The Huffington Post continues to flesh out that narrative of the fallen reality star.
According to Hoffman, Gosselin consistently made expensive, outlandish demands to TLC executives via e-mail while promoting the series around the country. The book claims the reality TV fixture would only stay at Essex House, one of New York's fanciest hotels, for free if certain stipulations were followed.
Gosselin reportedly demanded a suite and an additional king room directly next door. A room down the hall or even one room farther away was not acceptable, Hoffman claims.
When staying in New York to promote her reality show, Gosselin also allegedly sent out the following meticulously detailed list of the meals she required.
Wednesday dinner- Kobe beef tips (extremely tender steak- medium to medium well), steamed broccoli, whipped mashed potatoes, as well as French fries. Organic blueberries and vanilla ice cream for dessert. (This meal should be available as option for kids and adults. A mixed green/ grilled chicken salad should also be available- see below for ingredients)
Thursday lunch- Homemade macaroni and cheese with mild white cheddar and small shell pasta, fries with honey mustard dipping sauce and carrot and celery sticks with ranch dressing. Apple slices. Chocolate chip cookies for dessert. (Additional option of mixed green/ grilled chicken salad for adults: see below for salad ingredients)
Thursday dinner- Hamburgers (sliders) and cheeseburgers (sliders) as well as hot dogs and chicken fingers with honey mustard dipping sauce and French fries and onion rings. Dill pickles on the side. Steamed seasoned green beans on the side as well. Vanilla cake with vanilla icing for dessert. (Additional mixed green/ grilled chicken salad option needed for adults- see below for ingredients)
Friday lunch- peanut butter and grape jelly on wheat bread (whole grain with no obvious grain in it). Potato Chips, fruit salad (blueberries, bananas, apple, grapes, strawberries, kiwi, pineapple, etc), Monterey jack cheese cubes, and oatmeal raisin cookies for dessert. (Substitute for adults: ham and cheese sandwiches on wheat with lettuce tomato and onion and horseradish spread as well as a MIXED GREEN SALAD with grilled chicken, cucumber, tomato, sliced strawberries (or pears), feta cheese crumbles, pecans and a balsamic vinaigrette dressing.)
Friday dinner (if we are still there); Pizza: cheese, pepperoni, onion and green peppers in different configurations. French fries, and steamed broccoli. Chocolate brownies for dessert. (Additional mixed green/ grilled chicken salad option for adults needed- see above for ingredients)
Additionally, we would like the following Whole Foods selections in our room (main suite only): (as requested): 10 Organic bananas, 4 boxes organic blueberries, 4 packages organic cheese sticks, 2 boxes organic 'Ritz' crackers (the equivalent of Ritz but the organic brand), 2 six packs 'Yo Kids' (stonyfield farms) organic yogurt, 1 pack organic peanut butter cookies, 3 bottles organic lemonade, 1 gallon organic (pulp free) orange juice, 2 gallons spring water (unless supplied), 2 packages of Individually packaged cookies, 2 packages of individually packaged peanut butter crackers and/ or cheese crackers to eat on the run!
Hoffman has been very direct in describing his feelings toward Gosselin; she's "The most disgusting human being I know," says the author of the tell-all book on his blog.
Hoffman says he wrote about the 37-year-old reality star to expose her time in the spotlight as an "eight-year web of lies, abuse, greed, and manipulation."
The tell-all book accuses Gosselin of a litany of serious crimes, but most notably, that she has beaten her children since they were toddlers. Hoffman claims he personally called Child Protective Services on Gosselin on two separate incidents, because she is "sick" and in "desperate need of mental help."
Hoffman claims he found secret journals that Gosselin used to write her books "Multiple Bles8ings" and "Eight Little Faces," according to Hollywood Life. In journals that Kate reportedly wrote "She was beating 2-year-old babies in diapers," Hoffman told Star magazine.
"I don't judge somebody for spanking, but what Kate wrote in her journal is just absolute violence," he told the magazine.
While the author's book has vanished from online booksellers, Hoffman looks to be keeping good on his word that he'll happily be a thorn in Gosselin's side as long as he likes if she wants to discredit him in any way.
"The other 90 percent of the material I possess will not be published, ever, but you can be sure that if I'm falsely accused of anything and drug into court, or called a liar by Kate Gosselin or her lawyers, this information will come out then, including photographs," Hoffman says in the book.
