"Kate Plus 8" star Kate Gosselin has been fired from her latest job, People reports. She had been blogging at the website CouponCabin.
To all our Kate blog readers:
Some nine-plus years ago, I started CouponCabin with the thought of creating a single website that had all the best coupons… no gimmicks, no fluff, just a site that was easy to use and that had great deals. Along the way, we’ve helped our users collectively save hundreds of millions of dollars.
A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago, and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin.
It’s with this that I am writing to inform you of our decision to discontinue Ms. Gosselin’s feature blog on CouponCabin.com. Ms. Gosselin’s contributions garnered both positive attention and criticism, but as always, I respect and appreciate your candid opinions, which often encourage us not to lose sight of our mission — to help YOU save money.
We wish Kate, her family and her support staff all the best.
No specifics about why Gosselin was let go were mentioned in any of the media reports we saw. The People article added that Gosselin "wrote Tuesday [Oct. 16, 2012] on Twitter: ‘Good afternoon! I’m alive! I’ve been super busy working away! I’m having lots of fun and can’t wait to share! No worries..we will chat soon! XO.’
"Gosselin fretted about her financial prospects from the moment [her show on] TLC was canceled. ‘I’m freaking out. Big time,’ she told PEOPLE at the time, and vowed to go back to her old nursing job ‘if nothing comes up.’ "
