Kate Gosselin Tell All Pulled

So what kind of a person is Kate Gosselin, besides the pushy reality TV mom we’ve seen too much of in the tabs & once upon a time on her Kate +8 series? We may never really know but the world came very close. That’s because a recent tell all purporting to reveal the damning truth on Kate was recently pulled from the shelves. The author, a friend of Kate’s ex Jon, swears every word is true cause he got it off a hard drive she threw away. Kate’s people claim that the book is libelous. So they had Amazon pull it.

The author is Robert Hoffman. The books is Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World. The libelous claim is that Kate is sick in the head. He also says that she’s in desperate need of mental health intervention. He also presents himself as some on in a position to know. he was a friend of Jon’s. As such he was privy to all kinds of anti Kate kind of inside info. For instance he says that he’s in possession of 5,000 family photos, personal documents, tax & business records. Now that’s what you call a really involved friend! Of course he was more to them than a friend. He was also a freelance reporter covering the Kate drama for Us Weekly!

Friendship doesn’t stop at collecting the relics of a failing relationship. Hoffman took his friendship to the extreme of diving into the Gosselins‘; trash to retrieve Kate’s discarded computer. Not to return it or anything, bu8t to search the hard drive for juicy tidbits. Tidbits he did find, according to him, in the form of many e mails between Kate & the Discovery channel. Those alone must be good for a laugh! Then there were the contracts and personal documents. Many of these were reproduced in their entirety.

I’ll be sued by one or more parties before this is over,” Hoffman wrote, & he was right. Quick as a wink the lawyers got in on the act. LA’s celebrity law firm Lavely & Singer made their presence felt. As did Washington firm Williams & Connolly.  W&C are the Discovery Channel’s reps. So this is way more than a Gloria Allred nuisance suit.

The big boys issued some notices of infringement along with cease and desist orders. What that means in plain English is that even though Hoffman found that stuff lying around in some one else’s garbage, that ain’t exactly getting it fair & square. Besides some of that shit is still confidential, at least according to Discovery! So Amazon had to shelve the E Book almost as soon as it hit the market!

That leaves Hoffman in the middle of a legal mess. He’s also accepting on line donations. Seems there are some Gosselin enthusiasts out there who think that any swipe at Kate is well worth supporting! It also leaves Hoffman issuing some press statements, like ‘I’m overwhelmed and at a loss for words.’ ‘Loss for words’ would be very droll, if he meant it! Meanwhile he’ll have to join the ranks of other free speech martyrs like rebels without a cause Pussy Riot!
