It’s no wonder Kate Gosselin’s allegedly feeding her brood week-old sandwiches: The man-crushing Octomom is nearly broke, if new reports are to be believed.
It’s been more than a year since Jon & Kate Plus 8 ruled the airwaves at TLC and the family’s dethroning as reality TV royalty has taken a toll on Kate’s checking account, at least one source divulged to PopEater’s Naughty or Nice Column this week.
Sources close to the reality mom have revealed that despite earning a small fortune from her solo TLC venture, Kate Plus Eight, and her disastrous run on the 10th season of Dancing With the Stars, she’s blown through almost all her dough in a tailspin of overspending.
“Kate lives like she is a movie star,” a loose-lipped tipster laments. “She flies first class and stays at the most expensive hotels and spends money on herself like it’s going out of fashion. Remember, this is a woman who once spent $7,000 on a haircut! Kate was hoping to get paid to endorse a bunch of products. She thought she would earn millions by advertising baby carriages, food and cloths, but no one wanted her. The poor thing even thought she would get a deal with Cover Girl after being on ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ instead they went with Beyonce. Kate is so worried about her finances that she’s even thinking about getting a real job.”
