Kate Gosselin has been under fire as a result of Robert Hoffman's book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World. One of the points the author makes in the book is that Kate had some very unreasonable rules for the film crew any time any footage was filmed at her home. When you learn what those rules were, however, you might disagree with Robert Hoffman. Might this shed light on the credibility--or lack thereof--of the rest of his book?
According to one source, Kate Gosselin's house rules for the film crew don't sound all that unreasonable. For example, she doesn't want her home address ever written down or discussed. That seems to make perfect sense. Who wants random people showing up on their doorstep? Plus she's the mom of eight children. There are security issues at hand.
Another states that no smoking or drinking can take place either on her property or on the street in front of her property. You can't really blame her there, can you? If you're not a smoker or drinker yourself, you certainly don't want people taking part in those activities on your property and in front of your children.
Kate also insisted that the crew used just one bathroom that was located in the apartment and not in the main house. And while this might sound a bit inhospitable, then imagine cleaning a bathroom used by nine or more people--and then throw in its use by extras on a daily basis. Enough said?

Other rules included those about shutting doors and not wearing shoes inside the house. And while they're a bit nit-picky, they're really not horrible. Has Kate Gosselin gotten a bad rap on these rules because of Robert Hoffman's book--and for no good reason?
This is definitely not a 'defend Kate Gosselin' rant, but sometimes the naysayers can jump on a bandwagon with little to no reason for doing so. This might be one of those times.
Yes, Kate Gosselin is a bit of a tyrant about certain things, but this time she really wasn't behaving all that badly.
