Ashley Reaches Her Breaking Point With Kate on 'Kate Plus 8' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 6th 2011 5:37AM
Ashley, 'Kate Plus 8'And what cause you to leave your last place of employment? If you're Ashley from 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC), that answer is pizza. Particularly, four slices of pizza.

That was just the breaking point after a stressful trip that pushed Ashley to the edges of her tolerance with boss Kate Gosselin. Gosselin was ranting because Ashley had watched a movie -- camping, right? -- while she felt like she had to do everything, and no one offered their assistance.

"That's not paid help in my opinion," Gosselin said. "I'm sorry."

So Ashley made the difficult decision to quit, and it at last seems that she's pretty serious. She went through with breaking the news to the kids, which inevitably led to tears. Who would put kids through that if they weren't serious?

But there's always next week's series finale to see if Ashley might come back. Probably it would take a pretty big apology from Kate for treating Ashley and the other adults so deplorably on the two week long trip, which was obviously about two weeks longer than Kate's nerves could handle.

That girl deserves a medal for working for that physco.... I wonder how many Nannies she been thru to date.. Did she tell this girl when she was allowed to eat and pee. Those poor kids they do not seem happy at all. I felt bad for them when they were crying, Having that nanny around they probably felt safe and HAPPY.... They were probably wishing that their crazy mother would leave instead. Mark my word they are probably going to get away from this crazy ASS physco , the day they all turn 18.... Then her show will be called CRAZY BITCH MINUS EIGHT!!!! She is going to one lonely Lady.... Someone should tell these kids about emancipation when they are in thier teens.. The father should get custody I think...

Kate makes the declaration that "everyone always leaves" - well Kate, there is a saying out west. If one person calls you an ass, you might chalk that up to one person's opinion. If several people call you an ass, you might start looking for a saddle.......
This woman is a psychology book all wrapped up in to one person. What a great study in obsessive/compulsive and narcissistic behaviour she would be for a research project.
It is a sad situation when so many folks have such negative comments about someone, but when she chooses to demonstrate her personality traits on national television, she pretty much opens herself up for the lambasting. I watched only two programs - the one where she camped with Sarah Palin, and the one last night where they "camped" across the west. After watching just these two episodes, I really think she is destined to be a lonely lady.

i watched the show but i really have not watched mucn since Jon left. Kate drives everyone out of her life, her parents , her brother and Jody, jon, and it looked like the body guard Steve was not so happy this time either. What mother would take her kids to see the grand canyon and then make Maddie sit in the RV as punishment for crying. Maddie is just like her mom. This lady needs to have her kids taken away from her , she is abusive to them too. I really feel for the kids. They never seem to have any fun as Kate is always screaming at everyone around her. She belongs in a lonney bin.

After seeing the way Jon got treated by his control freak wife it was a miracle he stayed as long as he did. All Kate has done is try to get her 15 minutes of fame from her tummy tuck, boob job, hair extensions, fake tan and whatever plastic surgery she can get. Too bad they don't have surgery for bad attitude, selfishness, and just plain meaness.
This woman is just meaness and spite held together by her shrew attittude.
I feel very bad for the kids becuase they are just being exploited by her majesty so she can get whatever she wants. I loved the episode where they were interviewing Kate about high heels and how she always wears them and does not feel dressed up without them. Pleaseeee-give us all a break- give your kids to someone who truly loves them and cares about them and go stand on a street corner-I'm sure someone desperate will pick you up. Your kids deserve so much better than you. You are no mother -you are all about yourself. Prostitute yourself instead of them.

I would die for these kids but I can't spend one more moment with her - Ashley said it all so eloquently while in tears. WTG Ashley - too many years of abuse from Kate will get ya. How did you last so long?

I've never seen as poor excuse for a human being as Kate Gosselin. She has no consideration for anyone.'
She claims she does all the work while they sit around? All she does is pass out orders for everybody to get this and that done, even to the kids. She does nothing buy run around flipping her hands in the air and griping.
Went white water rafting and gave order she was not to get wet????? Even the guide didn't have anything nice to say about her or some of the kids.

I don't watch the show , but I did see the clip from their trip where Kate supposedly loses it. Yes she did lol..because her kids were pushing and fighting next to the campfire and she was afraid they'd end up in it. Meanwhile the 2 other adults , Ashley was one if them , said I'm just ignoring it , the other said me too. Both continued to sit on their butts while Kate not only stepped in before the kids got hurt , but also was fixing dinner for all. Every clip I see , I see Ashley and the other one sitting and Kate working. Who is the employer here?

Kate is a control freak and hs to do it all because nothing is ever right unless she does, in her opinion. Ashley and Jamie know this so sat there and were watching the kids, they were just fine. Kate is mental.

ALL three of these so called adult women on this 'vacation' acted like two year olds! ALL of them I pray watch this footage and cringe at their own behavior!!!!

I used to really stick up for Kate but these last few episodes have me rethiniking things. Year after year we have watched this woman come off the rails and this final season she really crashed and burned in my eyes!

What a vacation for these children, I didn't see any real fun, any real joy just a lot of bickering immature women taking snips at each other.

Also, what was so nuts about the pizza incident is you would think they were stranded on some island with no more food to be gotten. I mean come on, there had to be a store, a resturant something even miles away to get to eat?! Kate acted like this man wasn't going to be able to eat again for weeks! I mean talk about a drama diva! I'd say a drama queen but the definition of a queen is someone who rules their kingdom with grace and elegance....Kate rules with a heave hand and a biting nasty mouth!

She said 'everyone always leaves' welll Kate, it's time to take a good hard look at yourself, your actions and how you treat people and you might really honestly figure out WHY they leave!

Sad thing is, these children were put in the middle of her trainwreck! Not a very responsible mom I'd say!

Thank you Cloud and AMEN. Can you imagine going all the way to the Grand Canyon and not allowing Mady and Cara to see it as they were being punished? WOW.

Again, I cannot wait until this show ends and Kate does a porn video with Ron Jeremy aka a fitting end to her longer than expected 15 minutes of fame!
