review 1: Interesting read. It was free with Amazon Prime so I gave it a read. I wasn't a huge fan of Jon and Kate Plus 8, but I have seen many episodes. The material in the book is eye opening. The author spent two years of his life essentially stalking Kate Gosselin. He went through her trash, followed her to her daily trips to the UPS store, Planet Nails, and tanning. The shocker for me is the evidence supporting the claim that Kate Gosselin never had any fertility problems, in fact she purposely dosed herself extra shots of HCG to better her chances of extreme multiples. She lied to several fertility doctors about having PCOS. Fascinating read. It did get a bit repetitive. I am most haunted by her treatment of her two German Shepards, of course. There is also much speculation of... more her rumored affair with her bodyguard. Kate Gosselin goes through family members, nannies, and babysitters like its nothing. Also amusing is the fact that the author would be watching Kate as she tweeted about doing things with her kids while a nanny was actually the one doing the activity with the kids. Such as an elaborate Easter egg hunt she tweeted about for weeks. Robert watched as 1200 already filled Easter eggs were delivered to the home and distributed by paid workers while Kate drank wine. It is a rather long read, but definitely was interesting. It will definitely be interesting to find out what the Gosselin children have to say once they turn 18 and can speak out against Kate.
review 2: I guess I believe some of this, but certainly not all of it. Just because the other SAYS he has Kate's diaries doesn't mean he actually has them. Everyone can lie, not just Kate! Also, if the children were being abused and people knew about it, they could make an anonymous call to the authorities and not worry about contracts and such. So, I just don't know if I can believe that she is truly abusing them. Robert says she wrote that she wanted to hurt her children, but we don't know for sure she wrote that! However, I do believe she exploited her children. You don't need diaries to prove that. It went way too far and the producers of the show are to blame more than anyone or anything. less
