Kate and Jon Gosselin: Yup, They STILL Hate Each Other!

According to an old adage, time heals all wounds.

According to Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin, however, well...

... the other person just sucks so very much that the wounds of their failed marriage and their doomed relationship will only grow worse and worse as time goes on.

Jon Gosselin, Hannah

The ex-couple got divorced WAY back in 2009, yet going their separate ways did little to each the tension between these parents of eight.

As recently as this past November, we documented how the stage may be set for an explosive custody battle between the D-Listers, just a few months after they engaged in a very ugly actual fight.

In August of 2017, Kate and Jon got into a heated argument over who would drive their daughter home from the orthodontist, with poor Hannah literally stuck in between.

At the time, In Touch Weekly wrote that the teenager “screamed, sobbed, and violently resisted” while Kate grabbed a hold of her arm and tried to force her out of the vehicle.

How awful, right?

And how confusing and disturbing, right?

That two people who were once married and in love and who now must serve as co-parents can STILL get into this sort serious tiff all these years later?

Kate Plus a Pair

On the occasion of their sextuplets turning 14 on Thursday, both Jon and Kate wished their kids a happy birthday.

But an insider told Entertainment Tonight that Jon and Kate are "still at odds," nearly a decade after their legal break-up.

"They will never agree about how to raise the children," the source explains, adding that the pair "absolutely despise one another and can't stand to even be in the same room."

As a result, the ex-spouses won't be celebrating Collin, Hannah, Joel, Alexis, Leah and Aaden's birthday together - but they each acknowledged the milestone on Instagram.

"Happy 14th Birthday to Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin!!! I can’t believe it’s been this long!!!" wrote Jon, adding:

"Whew that when fast!!! Daddy loves you all very much!!!"

Not according to his twins, Jon doesn't.

But anyway...

14 image

Kate, who will soon start dating in front of reality TV cameras, shared the above birthday cake photo.

She included with it a lengthy caption that reads:

Happy 14th Birthday, my ‘babies’. 14 years ago almost to the minute, I was in my wheelchair, making my way around the ENTIRE NICU, meeting each of you face to face for the very first time.

I’ll never forget how tiny yet perfect each of you were.

Alexis’s blonde hair, Aaden’s teeny tiny face, with alert awake eyes that didn’t miss a thing, Hannah and her adorable ‘human doll’ face, Collin looked SO big and strong at 3 entire pounds (the biggest!), Leah had the most beautiful head of dark soft hair and Joel— literally just slept peacefully like he was at the beach in the sun!

I’ll never forget our first ‘birth day’ together......this day remains one of the best in my life.... and 14 years later, I love you 400 times as much, if that’s even possible!

Happy birthday, my babies! Here’s to many more birthdays together!! I love you forever and always, no matter what!

Kate Gosselin is Tired

It really is an awful shame that Kate and Jon cannot be remotely amicable in front of their kids.

How hard would it be to put on fake smiles and co-host a birthday party for their teenages, right?

Very hard, apparently.

The best we can hope for at this point is that each keeps his or her feelings to him or herself when around the children and doesn't actually bad mouth Mom or Dad when alone with the children.

But knowing Kate and Jon as we sort of do, this seems like too much to ask for.

Kate Gosselin Baits Fans, Leaves Collin Out of Early Birthday Pic

Last year, Kate Gosselin wasn't shy about the fact that five of her sextuplets celebrated their birthday without Collin.

Kate has been beyond vague about his "treatment program" for alleged "special needs" that has kept him away from his siblings for years.

Now, as her children turn 14, Collin is nowhere to be found. But Kate seems to be trying to hide that fact.

Gosselin Children Turn 14

In the captions of this photo, Kate writes:

"Rainy day ice cream. ... #HowAreMyBabiesTurning14?"

Kate and John's sextuplets will turn 14 on Thursday, May 10.

"#LoveThemAll (even the ones who refused to be in the pic)"

Despite a caption that many saw as almost begging for questions about Collin Gosselin, some commenters glossed over his absence from the photo to fawn over kate.

Others just ignored all of that to make simple, positive posts.

"WOW! 14 already?! They have grown so quickly."

Gosselin Children

A number of Kate's harshest critics noticed Collin's absence and spoke up.

"This lady is evil all she cares about is herself, fame and having everything her way."

That is a common characterization of Kate.

"She did it again, wanted to get people attention and got it."

This comment seems to refer to her highlighting Collin's absence, which people see as a (successful) strategy for getting a lot of Instagram interactions.

"FREE COLLIN!!!!!!!!!"

Some fear the worst for the poor boy.

"Collin could be away in some dungeon for all [fans] know."

Others expressed disgust with Kate for shipping him off.

"Sick that she as a parent wouldn't want to learn how to deal with any issues. I did. Rather have my children where they feel loved and part of the family no matter what. Families do that."

Others would at least like an explanation.

"She could let the public know how he is doing. The saddest thing to me is that the dad to my knowledge has no contact with Collin. I don't understand why he cannot take legal action to get to see his son."

Kate Gosselin is Tired

Others were more charitable in their view of Kate and even spoke in her defense.

"Poor Collin.. I know he's getting help and she's doing what she needs to do to be a good mom. I just feel bad he can't celebrate his birthdays with his siblings."

One person thinks that Kate is right to be so cryptic about Collin.

"When Kate (and Collin) are ready to let fans of Kate Plus 8 know more about their situation, they'll do so. Not before, not for the sake of your curiosity or even your concern."

Fans with comments like this should probably remember that Collin likely won't be free to speak his mind. That's for another four years.

When fans say that, they should remember that four years isn't an inconvenience -- that is a massive chunk of a teenager's life.

Katie 'Kate' Gosselin

The Kate apologists continued to post, and some got very defensive.

"She posted a pic of her children who I believe she loves greatly. I don’t believe he was 'kicked out' and all I am saying is stop asking where Colin is every time she posts something."

That person doesn't think that people should even ask? About the whereabouts and well-being of a minor?

Other fans were weirded out by that assertion.

"I think it’s should be ok to ask where Colin is people who has watched the show from the beginning, [they] are just curious."

Yep.

"I find it sad how some of Kate's fans are telling other Kate fans to stop talking about Collin. It's been 3 years since he's been gone and nothing from Kate. Now before you bring up the privacy argument,simply telling fans that hes home is not exposing details about anything."

Many feel that such a level of privacy -- where someone can just disappear for years without explanation -- goes out the window when you use your children as props to become reality stars.

Kate Plus a Pair

Other commenters decided to try to steer away from the Collin discussion, writing:

"I'm sure Kate is referring to the twins not wanting to be in the picture."

Sure.

What may be our favorite comment was this one:

"Shouldn’t be Kate +7."

It's hard to tell if this person is saying that Collin should be there, or if they mean shouldn't it, suggesting that the show's name should be changed for accuracy.

Gosselin Twins to Jon: You Don’t Love Us!

DISCLAIMER:

We're very sorry that the Gosselin family is back in the news.

Trust us, we wish this were not the case and that you never had to read about Kate or Jon ever again.

Kate Plus Eight (8)

But Kate Gosselin has actually signed on to anchor her very own dating show, and she's agreed to a deal with People Magazine to promote said show.

As part of this deal, the publication actually spoke on record to 17-year old twins Mady and Cara, about whom Kate recently said the following when it comes to her love life:

“Now that they’re older and talking about dating and how they’re all gonna get married someday … it became apparent: they want someone for me.

"They want me to have somebody in my life."

Along these lines, except the exact opposite, Mady and Cara have opened up to People and said some rather harsh things about their dad.

Specifically, they claim that Jon Gosselin is NOT a person who is currently in their life.

"He makes it seem like we’re being kept from him, which is insane,” Mady says, adding:

“He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen."

jon ad

Wow, huh? Ouch!

Back in November, we reported that Jon was going to fight for custody of his children.

But take one look at his Instagram page and you may not even realize he has children, considering the entire thing is practically filled with nothing but posters such as the one above.

That is, ads for Jon's appearances at various clubs that have hired him as a DJ for some reason.

"He doesn’t even know us,” Mady also tells People. “How can he dare to talk about us?

This is the harshest and most straightforward we've ever heard any Gosselin kids speak about their father.

Jon did wish his twins a happy 17th birthday six months ago, but that was the last reference he made to them on social media.

twins tribute

Kate and Jon rose to fame well over a decade ago as the leads of Jon & Kate Plus 8.

They surprised absolutely no one who watched their painful marriage on television when they announced their separation in 2009.

Since then, Jon has focused on his DJing career, while battling Kate for custody of the twins and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Leah and Joel, who turn 14 next month.

However, in August of 2016, Mady and Cara said that they weren’t speaking to their dad, who had given interviews to some media outlets about his strained relationship with his daughters.

Of course, Kate has also discussed her kids often in public.

Kate Gosselin, Twins

This right here is a photo of them on the set of The View.

But one big difference, it seems, is that Kate hasn't bad-mouthed her sons or daughters.

She hasn't blamed them for any kind of poor relationship and she has seemingly always asked for their permission any time they were placed in the spotlight.

Don't get us wrong, Kate Gosselin sucks a whole lot, too.

We aren't very big fans of her and we'd rather watch Chrisley Knows Best over her ridiculous upcoming dating show

But she does seem to at least know the names of all her children.

We're not entirely sure the same thing can be said of Jon.

Kate Gosselin to Star in New Dating Show (You Can Guess the Title, Right?)

Kate Gosselin rose to fame by starring in a reality show that focused on the significant number of children who emanated from her vagina.

Now, according to a report we did not see coming, the mother of eight will star in a reality show that focuses on various men hoping to find their way into her vagina.

If you know what we mean!

Kate Gosselin is Tired

What we mean is this:

Kate Gosselin is about to anchor a brand new series on TLC.

The program will be titled Kate Plus Date (because of course it will) and it will chronicle Gosselin's attempt to find a man that actually wants to be her boyfriend.

“I’m nervous, I’m excited, and I’m forcing myself to do this,” Gosselin told People Magazine of the upcoming docuseries.

Gosselin, of course, became somewhat of a household name after appearing opposite then-husband Jon on Jon & Kate Plus 8, because the parents had one set of twins and one set of sextuplets.

The couple then got divorced after a decade of marriage and TLC aired a few seasons of Kate Plus 8.

Kate Plus a Pair

Incredibly, twins Mady and Cara are both 17 years old now and will soon go off to college, leaving Gosselin at home with 13-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Joel, Alexis, Hannah and Leah.

(Collin is enrolled in a program away from home to help him reach his full potential, the details of which Jon and Kate prefer to keep to themselves.)

"As we’re talking about Mady and Cara going off to college which is becoming more and more of a reality, it’s gonna happen, it almost became like a worry for them, too, like ‘Mommy, you’re gonna be all alone soon,’ ” claims Gosselin, who adds:

"It was very apparent, now that they’re older and talking about dating and how they’re all gonna get married someday … it became apparent: they want someone for me.

"They want me to have somebody in my life."

Kate Gosselin and a Dog

This may be true.

It doesn't explain why Gosselin has to go in front of the camera once again, however.

We're pretty sure she could go swipe right or left on Tinder right now and fulfill the wishes of her kids.

Kate, who some say is broke and could likely use the salary a new show will provide, admits that her life is "complicated," but that won't stop her from jumping into the dating pool with both feet.

"I want someone with a set career, who is confident," she explains.

"A grown-up with their own life, their own agenda, who knows who they are. If someone travels for work, that would be great, because I’m used to being on my own and being self-sufficient."

Kate Gosselin on Instagram

Kate Plus Date will premiere some time this fall on TLC.

It doesn't sound as though it will touch upon her issues with Jon, but rather on the man who may become the next Jon. (Poor guy.)

And Gosselin knows of one qualification he must possess:

He absolutely must love dogs.

“That is such a deal-breaker,” says Gosselin. "People disappoint you, but your dogs never will.”

Kate Gosselin: Under Fire for Dog-Daughter Kissing Photo (Yes, For Real!)

With apologies to Donald Trump and Jenelle Evans, Kate Gosselin may be the most hated person in America.

We aren't exactly fans of the reality star and multiple-time mother, but the grief Gosselin often faces online has built to such an extreme that we almost feel badly for her.

Almost, we said.

Kate Gosselin and Mak

Let's not get carried away here.

Over the past few months, Gosselin has shared a number of photos online that has resulted in her getting dragged left and right on social media.

There was the time she posted a throwback picture of her twins in celebration of their birthday, for instance, only for haters to label Mady and Cara as "mean" and "entitled."

There was also the time she shared a seemingly innocent picture of her kids on Halloween, only for haters to wonder about the absence of Collin.

(Neither Kate nor ex-husband Jon have provided any detail on the location or status of 13-year old Collin, who is enrolled in a program away from home for behavioral issues.)

However, this latest Kate Gosselin-related scandal may be the most ridiculous of all-time.

It starts and ends with this image:

Dog Kiss!

Wrote Gosselin as a caption to this snapshot of her German Shepherd kissing her daughter, Alexis:

"The love between my human children and my furry children continues to melt my heart on a daily basis!

"Mak just can't love us enough - and we feel the same about him! We adore him!"

Any regular clicker on Gosselin's Instagram page can vouch for this statement, as nearly every other photo is of a canine.

But that isn't really the point at the moment.

The point, according to Internet users who just really want to be outraged over something, is that Gosselin is a bad mother because she let her kid get kissed on the mouth by a dog.

Kate Gosselin and a Dog

Just consider these actual comments left in response to the picture in question:

I love animals, but even doctors say don’t kiss them or let them lick you in the mouth. They put their noses and mouths everywhere we don’t want to know. Just saying.

For someone who was such a germaphobe, I’m surprised you allow your dogs to lick your kids mouths.

I love my fur babies but I also don’t kiss them on the mouth.... seriously. They lick their own butt....eeek.

It's definitely clear at this point that Kate can't win when it comes to trolls such as these.

Some people just can't get over the way she treated her former husband or her kids on either of her reality shows.

A Big Dog

And we get it.

Some of the stories surrounding Gosselin make her sound anything but stable.

But you've gotta pick your battles, people.

If you criticize absolutely everything she does, you'll be left with nothing to say when Gosselin truly deserves your ire.

Sometimes it's best to ignore, move on... and then really go on the offensive when Gosselin inevitably earns some Internet scorn.

Kate Gosselin: Going Broke? On Verge of Losing Kids?

According to a new report, Kate Gosselin is not enjoying a very merry Christmas.

And she may have an even worse new year.

Kate Plus a Pair

The mother of eight (that's still so very hard to believe... she's a mother of EIGHT!) is allegedly suffering through some pretty severe financial hardships.

She somehow managed to convince TLC to air a new season of Kate Plus 8 this past year, but only three episodes aired over the summer.

Moreover, Gosselin does not have anywhere near the clout she once possessed.

Ratings haven't been strong for that program for years now, meaning she couldn't command a very high salary during recent negotiations.

Those three episodes didn't yield Gosselin much in the way of revenue - and there are no plans, as far as we know, for any more to hit the air.

Don't just take our word for these issues, however.

Gosselin Children

Their parents may suck, but these kids are adorable. We pray for their future.

This is what an insider recently told Life & Style:

"Kate no longer has the income she once had from the show. The money is running out fast .... Private school alone costs about $150,000 a year."

Seriously, simply raising eight kids is a very expensive endeavor.

Many fans of the reality star likely aren't even aware that Gosselin used to work as a nurse.

This has the potential to be a highly-paid occupation, but there's one problem:

"She's let her nursing license lapse," the aforementioned source explains. "And she hasn’t been a nurse in so long anyway.

Not having enough money to afford basic needs for her kids is one thing; but Gosselin also now fears that her monetary situation will open the door to her actually losing her kids.

"That’s Kate's biggest fear," the unnamed insider alleges. "She dreads Jon will have more say and possibly even more custody which she's fought nonstop to keep from him."

Annoying ex-husband Jon is reportedly ready to pounce.

Jon Gosselin Poster

Said someone with knowledge of the circumstances to Hollywood Life in November:

"Jon's one and only goal in life right now is getting more time with his kids. He's doing everything he can to win their next custody battle."

Indeed, things may soon get very explosive between the Gosselins.

It's not as though they're known for resolving disputes in an amicable and peaceful manner regardless of what's at stake.

So you can imagine how ugly it may get when the future of their sons and daughters are up for legal debate.

Earlier this year, Jon took an IT job. He now has a steady flow of income.

Combined with Kate going in the opposite financial direction, the estranged former spouses may find themselves standing across from a judge at some point in the near future.

And, as previously reported, Jon will stop at nothing to crush his ex in court.

Buckle up, celebrity gossip fans.

Kate Gosselin Shares Pics of Daughters, Gets Dragged by Trolls HARD

Darn you, Internet.

You've really gone ahead and done it now.

You've made us feel bad for Kate Gosselin.

A Big Dog

Over the past few weeks, hatred for the reality star and mother of eight has seemed to hit near-record numbers, as Gosselin cannot share anything online without hearing it from a bunch of trolls.

Just a few weeks ago, for example, Gosselin posted a few photos online of her kids in their Halloween costumes.

We're pretty sure every single celebrity alive does this.

And yet followers called out Kate for the snapshots, mostly because they did not include son Collin, who has been enrolled in a program away from home for behavioral issues.

Details regarding his status remain scarce, which has prompted haters to bring up him every chance they get.

Gosselin even received backlash, as it relates to Collin, when she shared throwback photos of her twin girls on the occasion of their 17th birthday.

And now Kate has gone ahead and shared new throwback pictures, this time of daughter Alexis.

Alexis Throwback

Along with the cute snapshot above, the Kate Plus 8 star wrote:

The girls and I were looking through old pics the other night together...reliving our MANY fun times over the years...

it's cute when your teenagers screech about how cute they were and play argue over 'who was the cutest.'

To me, they were and are all equally 'edible' and adorable and I told them so. They then tried to convince me to 'eat them first'! It's always a competition in a big family, I tell you!

Anyway, there are many, but these pics of Lex make me laugh every time I come across them! How can you not?

She's always been the perfect dose of humor when I need it most... on this day, when she was 5, she entertained me while I showered!

Pretty basic and definitely harmless, right?

Nope, wrong apparently.

Yes, some followers showed Gosselin support and clearly appreciated this cute snapshot:

lex tweet

"She is so precious! Where did the time go?" asked another fan.

Others, however, definitely seemed to be focused on the wrong thing.

"Wait, you take your phone into the shower," inquired a confused follower, while a second person chimed in with a similar take:

"You took your phone into the shower or bath? Um yeah ok kate."

lex in shower

These, of course, are mostly mundane issues.

The true trolls, though, didn't just inquire about Collin and his whereabouts.

They accused Kate of not liking her sons as much as her daughters!

For real:

where are boys?

Look, it takes a lot for us to be on Team Kate Gosselin.

We mostly see her as a greedy, self-serving and manipulative annoyance.

But come on now.

We're not gonna pick on Kate just because she shares some precious pictures of her kids.

What's the alternative? What else would she do on Instagram? Go all Kylie Jenner on us and pose nearly naked?

God forbid, right?

So you see: it could be a lot worse. Remember that.

Jon and Kate Gosselin Reunite; Things are Weird

Kate Gosselin may have heard about Jon's new girlfriend.

Returning from a romantic weekend jaunt to St. Tropez, France, with Hailey Glassman yesterday, Jon Gosselin was seen at the family's Wernersville, Pa., home.

Jon and Kate played with their eight kids outside, but barely spoke to each other. With people saying he's secretly engaged to someone else, it's kinda awkward.

Kate goofed around with her children, even riding a tricycle herself, and while Jon Gosselin joined in on the fun, he and Kate didn't interact very much at all.

Both Jon and Kate have pledged to focus on the needs of their eight children as they go forward with their divorce, which will end a tumultuous 10-year union.

"Our goal is to do the very best for our children," they said in a statement last month, echoing the theme of the last new episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

J. GosselinGrating

Jon and Kate Gosselin in happier times. Or at least previous times.

Recently, the couple put their differences aside while they celebrated the Fourth of July as a family. That appeared to be a civil, even pleasant affair.

But that was before Jon went public with Hailey Glassman, his 22-year-old ditzy, party animal, possibly-bisexual girlfriend and the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate's post-sextuplets tummy tuck operation. Pretty rough.

After their odd playtime, Kate packed her bags, hugged her kids and drove off, leaving Jon with the brood. No word on how many fist-pumps ensued.

A observer reports that after Kate left, Jon spent a lot of time on the phone outside and, from what they could tell, "looked very angry and frustrated."

Wonder if Hailey Glassman's already cheating on him ...

Jon Gosselin Planted Kate Gosselin-Steve Neild Rumors

Having already gone public with new girlfriend Hailey Glassman just weeks after separating from his wife, Jon Gosselin is not the most popular guy right now.

This story is not likely to help his cause.

According to Radar Online, Jon intentionally started the rumors that his now-estranged wife Kate Gosselin was having an affair with her bodyguard Steve Neild.

“Jon wanted a divorce from Kate and he also wanted to throw attention away from himself, so he spread that rumor,” a source close to the couple said.

“Jon doesn’t like Steve Neild so he didn’t care about the repercussions.”

Kate Gosselin ended being the one who filed for divorce on June 22.

Jon Gosselin on the Phone

“She didn’t want to. In fact, on the day the papers went in, Kate was with her attorney crying and sobbing. She was very upset,” the source added. “Kate did not want the divorce. She did it because she felt she had to protect herself.”

Steve Neild, who is married, hasn’t been seen with Kate for several weeks, although Radar reports he is still a “consultant” on the family’s security issues.

Kate Gosselin has recently been travelling with another bodyguard, including during her business trip to California last week. Speculation is rampant that Kate is now pursuing several options to further her career as a TV personality and author.

New episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8 are scheduled to return August 3. Hopefully we'll see Kate and her backwards mullet in action on the dating scene.

Faux Kate Gosselin Releases Match.com Profile

The faux Jon Gosselin Match.com ad was pretty awesome.

The newly-released Kate Gosselin counterpart is as well.

In a Match.com profile spoof produced by Funny or Die, Kate Gosselin is looking for a man who likes backwards mullets - party in the front, soccer mom in the back - and doesn't mind stretch marks. An obscene amount of stretch marks.

As for some facts about herself, Kate (username KatePlus8Minus1Hawaiian) she says she has eight fatherless kids who live in Crooked Houses and she never cries.

Ever. She then proceeds to cry. It's wrong, but hilarious ...


Kate Gosselin Match.com Profile

Jon Gosselin: Dating Hailey Glassman!

Deanna Hummel who? Apparently moving on from wife Kate and the mistress that wrecked his marriage, Jon Gosselin has been cozying up to Hailey Glassman, 22.

Radar Online quotes a source saying Jon and Hailey are "definitely in love."

Guess Jon's Match.com profile can be retired (in the dating Hall of Fame).

"They are planning a romantic trip to Paris in the next couple of weeks. And Hailey is going to start a shoe line. She is into fashion," the Radar source said.

Another friend of the young cutie says that Hailey Glassman has changed her status on Facebook to "in a relationship." Well, that's the clincher right there!

Glassman is the hard-partying spawn of plastic surgeon Lawrence Glassman, who performed Kate Gosselin's tummy-tuck surgery (seen on Jon & Kate Plus 8).

Hailey was busted by cops for possession of marijuana, hashish and hashish oil in 2005. A male friend called her "one of the most wild women I've ever met."

Here's a photo that will corroborate that assessment ...

Hailey Glassman Picture

On May 24, Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman were spotted at Bourbon Street bar in Nyack, N.Y., and were caught on surveillance video enjoying drinks.

As they left the watering hole, Jon was accosted by a photographer and fled through the back alley, cell phone in hand (and probably Bluetooth in ear).

But it's all good now. He and Kate Gosselin have officially separated, and he is now free to chase whatever tail he desires. Meanwhile, Kate made a whirlwind trip to Hollywood this week, presumably to pursue some sort of ... we have no idea.

Seriously, who wants to pay Kate Gosselin to do anything these days?

Nevertheless, she flew into L.A. Monday and checked herself at the posh Bel-Air hotel. She spent most of her time lounging by the pool and was spotted having lunch with a pair of women on Wednesday, then driving to Burbank for meetings.

The mulleted one flew back home to Wernersville, Pa. late Wednesday.

Kate Gosselin Invited to California Women’s Conference

Kate Gosselin's marriage may be in divorce court, her clothing line sacked and her cookbook shelved. But her star power hasn't entirely eroded yet.

She's been invited by Maria Shriver to the Annual Women's Conference.

The nation's "premiere forum" for women promotes "empowerment, inspiration and education," helping them become "architects for change."

Also on the list for the October event in Sacramento, Calif.? Katie Couric, Kelly Preston, Cindy McCain, Elizabeth Edwards and Madeleine Albright.

An inspirational architect for change like Kate should fit right in.

California's first lady said it wasn't even her idea to invite the mom of eight to attend. Nor was it her husband, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's.

Maria Shriver said that the couple's teenage daughters, who are fans of Jon & Kate Plus 8, suggested she ask the TLC star to come to the event.

Also noteworthy is that the invites were sent out five months ago, before the family was regularly splashed across celebrity gossip tabloids.

Think they wish they could take a mulligan on that one now?

Hey, at least Kate Gosselin and Elizabeth Edwards can share notes on their respective home wreckers, Deanna Hummel and Rielle Hunter.
