Kate Gosselin Allegedly Calls Mothers Support Group ‘The R-Word’

Former reality TV star Kate Gosselin is under fire for allegedly describing mothers of multiples as “retarded” in an email she sent out. The email was obtained by author Robert Hoffman, who wrote the book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World.

According to a report, Hoffman wrote that Jon Gosselin forwarded an email to Kate from Patti T., the coordinator of the forum MOST or Mothers of Super Twins. In the email, Patti T. asked Jon if he was willing to post a message that would “introduce himself and his family to the forum.”

Hoffman said that he does not know why the email annoyed Kate. She responded to Jon’s email saying, “These people are retarded.”

Many advocacy groups are aiming to remove the r-word from the English vocabulary because of its offensive nature. Radar Online received a statement from the Special Olympics about Gosselin’s word choice, and they said, “We’re always saddened and disappointed when we hear of people using the r-word.”

Gosselin is also under scrutiny, as there were also reports that she forced her children to take family vacations with her in order to improve the ratings of their reality show. In a report, Gosselin supposedly forced her daughter Mady to go on a trip to Alaska with former Governor Sarah Palin.

Hoffman wrote about the incident in his book. “She absolutely did not want to go away for more filming and especially not as far away as Alaska. I know this because I went to Kate’s house that night with Jon to pick up Mady, and I heard the discussion between Jon and Kate—through the intercom at the gate.”

It is not the first time Hoffman revealed Gosselin’s emails. In a former revelation, Hoffman revealed a letter she wrote to the State of Pennsylvania wherein she pleaded for free childcare aid for her “disabled” children.

    The only disability those poor children suffer from is having HER for a Mother….

    While name calling is really never right and even if you get the “R” word taked out of the dictionary, the word is still in everyones head. Remember the saying, “sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me?” Well the names will only hurt you if you let them.

    I don’t like Kate Gosselin and I think using the word “retarded” is rude. But really, who cares if she used it in a private message to her then husband?

    Why are these people given Kate any attention at all regarding her personal drama? Everyone know she has mental health issues, just like 80% of the all the other celebrities out there in the world?

      If you want to make a point about Kate, fine. But, to make a bogus claim that 80% of celebrities have mental health issues is just asinine. Can you even cite any data that backs up your ridiculous claim?

    She’s a joke, a media whore like Omarosa and Brandi Glanville but now she’s really put her foot in her mouth and that’s where it should stay.
