It seems like Kate Gosselin spends the majority of her time alone nowadays or in the company of her kids and bodyguard. As far as having any real friends goes, Kate’s life seems pretty empty. Years ago when the mom of 8 first became famous she had Beth Carson beside her. The two ladies were tight and Beth was devoted enough to the entire family to be featured in some of the earlier episodes of Jon & Kate Plus Eight.So what happened to make the two women go in completely different directions? Well, according to an interview that Beth gave in the Aug. 25th print edition of The National Enquirer, Kate’s fame seeking is exactly what ruined the friendship. Beth says that she was originally on board with Kate and Jon doing the show because it was a way to ensure that they had enough money to take good care of the 8 kids. Sadly it didn’t take long for Kate’s personality to change and for every move of her life to be carefully choreographed to stay relevant.
Beth also says that she and Kate co-authored a book back in 2008 and had agreed to a 50/50 split. Once the book was released Kate rallied to have Beth’s name removed from the project so that she alone would reap the benefits. That was the defining moment when Beth knew that she was finished with anything connected to Kate. Fast forward a few years and I don’t think any of us are really shocked to learn that Kate screwed over her best friend, right? Doesn’t that seem totally in character with the woman that we know Kate to be? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
