Kate Gosselin Emmys Update: Now She Wants to Act?!

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 30th 2010 2:32PM
Kate GosselinKate Gosselin wants to try her hand at acting, and it's all Jimmy Fallon's fault.

When the Emmys host asked Gosselin to participate in last night's 'Glee'-themed opening skit, he inadvertently planted an idea in the reality star's head that could scar movie-going and TV-viewing audiences for generations to come. "Doing that little part in the skit was so amazing for me, being around so many wonderful actors," she told Entertainment Weekly. "I so want to give it a try! I think it is so fun to be somebody else, to get out of me and be somebody else."

It's unclear whether Gosselin's appearance in the Emmys number was a result of a previously unseen sense of humor or just because she is physically unable to resist appearing in front of any type of camera. Either way, it was a cute wink to her wooden but inexplicably lengthy 'Dancing With the Stars' stint, one of the year's most memorable TV trainwreck moments. But that doesn't mean we want to see any more of her.

Shame on you, Jimmy, for fanning the flame of Gosselin's burning desire to be on television. After all, it was his idea to book Kate for the skit. "It was Jimmy Fallon's personal invitation to have me in it," she said. "I love him. I so love him. It was a lot of fun, the most fun thing I have done in so long."

'Jon & Kate Plus 8' started out as a charming show about a supersized family and their exploits, but over the years, it devolved into the TV equivalent of sitting between two sides of a couple as they air their domestic dirty laundry. Watching a naggy TV wife berating her useless, lazy husband as their marriage disintegrates is probably even more uncomfortable than when it happens to you personally.

As a result, seeing Kate Gosselin grace my TV screen makes me want to pick up the nearest heavy object and hurl it in her direction. The woman and her family have already cornered the tabloid , reality TV and parenting author markets -- all things I can easily avoid if I really want to. But scripted TV? Steer clear, lady. There's got to be some sacred Gosselin-free safe zone.

Let's not encourage this behavior any more than we already have or we're in for more Bristol Palin-like levels of bad acting here, people. So, Hollywood, I beg of you: For the love of humanity, keep Kate Gosselin away from acting.

Would you watch Kate Gosselin try her hand at acting? Or would you prefer to steer clear of all things Gosselin?

when Kate wants Kate gets she will drop those kids as soon as they are no us to her. She does not love them. She only acts thats she does when camera are working. Watch the kids whe she hugs the they look surprised. sometinmes its fear in hier eyes it a hug or a slap. Stop blaming Jon he has been playing money all along. Jon's father was wealthy that is why Kate married him. the six months into marrage she had the treatment. Jon ws happy with the twins.But Kate wanted mone. and she had six. Then both saw how much money they could make. Then both went on tour or money begging every place they went. Friends andfamily would babysit. Kate and Beth wrote a book. Kate loved the first class tks delux hotels. They knew they could make as much without the kids. Money and free hings were rolling in. TLC contract, free haircuts, free clothes, freewasher,food and dryers. If they wanted something they got it free. They paid for nothing. Free cars. the money was rolling in. John still worked got the kids up in the morning feed them until Kate got up. Jon came home and bath them and put them to bed. The Nannies,maid,cook were all a secret. then she wanted to Travel do book tours, Jon hated it. She then wanted a body guard. she made jon quit his job so she could go tanning and spa's. Don't believe me watch old episodes. Kate got her bodyguard and he new boyfriend. Kate found HollyWood talk shows and everyone believed her story od a poor women. Kate had a few hidden bank accountsthe kids did not. the kids worked. Kate was called ssingle motherinstead divorsed mother. TV hosts feel in loved with her and believed every thing she said.even Nancy grac blamed Jon. No one bothered to go back an watch old episodes. I am sure it would have been headline news ifJon was giving the one giving love taps

I thought she was already acting. She plays a mother on 8 plus eight. The rest of the time she running around in hooker outfits trying to get her pictire taken. Jimmy will regret the day he did this. Kat is NOT a mother to those chilren. She is the birth mother

Kate has no talent. It seems she would be a terribl demanding person to have around. Her smile always seems fake and she doesn't have any talent

There are people that can't afford so much for their quints. Lets see some others for a change and let the Gosslein children have some normalcy.

She can't act, sing, dance and will not follow directions. Keep this woman off the TV and call in CPS!

PLEASE!PLEASE!PLEASE! I can't stand the thought that this woman gets paid (and paid very well) for doing all of this. For what? Because she couldn't get pregnant without fertility drugs? Because she couldn't keep a husband? Because she CAN'T dance? Now she will get paid for something else she can't so!!!!! Now she has a new show with the kids. Hey TV land.... Go find a single Mom worthy of making tons of money just for raising her children. There are some great Moms out there. Lets give Kate's children a break.

I think that Kate should get up off her lazy but, and get a real job and not depend on her kids to bring home the money. As for an Emmy oh please it was bad enough when she was DWTS.
