When Kate Gosselin found out that her reality show had been canceled back in November 2011, she told me money was the first thing that came to mind. Kate vowed to do whatever necessary to provide for her eight children, and insisted the amount of money she was rumored to have made was not accurate. However, a newly released book claims Kate earned at least $ 2,499,000 from her reality show, “Jon & Kate Plus 8.”
“I read what we apparently make and it’s hysterical. That would be a dream come true times two million. So it’s certainly way less than people think. We are not set for life,” Kate said in 2011. “You know, I need to work as soon as possible — as in yesterday.”
Now, the author of a controversial new book, “Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World,” claims to have detailed accounts of exactly how much Kate made for each of the first five seasons her show aired on TLC.
