Kate Gosselin has been officially terminated from her CouponCabin job, in which she blogged for the company for less than a year.

In a somewhat brusque letter to users, CouponCabin CEO Scott Kluth announced the news with vague but curious reasoning, saying that Kate just did not “align with” the company’s “authenticity”.

To all our Kate blog readers:

Some nine-plus years ago, I started CouponCabin with the thought of creating a single website that had all the best coupons… no gimmicks, no fluff, just a site that was easy to use and that had great deals. Along the way, we’ve helped our users collectively save hundreds of millions of dollars.

A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago, and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin.

It’s with this that I am writing to inform you of our decision to discontinue Ms. Gosselin’s feature blog on CouponCabin.com. Ms. Gosselin’s contributions garnered both positive attention and criticism, but as always, I respect and appreciate your candid opinions, which often encourage us not to lose sight of our mission — to help YOU save money.

We wish Kate, her family and her support staff all the best.

No word yet on exactly what she did or said to get the axe, but users of the site are curious. She did, however, tweet that she is “still alive” and has some projects lined up.

    “Authenticity”? CEO Scott Kluth lacks class. Why publicly slam someone that everyone knows is a mother of eight? Shame on you Kluth for not doing a better job of hiring and a worse job of firing.

      Please, Kate had 6 kids by artificial means, she is no one special anyone who has mor that natually given kids is literally a dog having puppys. The kids suffered in this mass mess that she has created by selfish means……

    Thank goodness she is gone! Now I will go to your website and enjoy it. I suggest she try manual labor to support her family, like everyone else! Enough is enough!

    What does being a mother of eight have to do with it? How does that make her somehow immune from criticism? Kate’s fifteen minutes were over about two years ago, but she just can’t give up the limelight and actually, you know,raise her children.

    No one seems to like Kate Gosselin very much. She rubs everyone the wrong way and people just don’t like her. I don’t like her. The end.

    Why is this woman still in the news? Just because you have a bunch of children does not make you interesting or special. She could always call “Octomom” and see if there’s room next to her on the pole….

    Isn’t it obvious that Kate changed because of the “star” status put upon her by her original reality show? I can see why her husband gave up. In addition to her basic controlling personality, she loved the attention and began to think the show was all about her. I can see why this happened to her, and you can see that it has continued to happen to other artificial “stars” that come out of reality show. Some are able to (eventually) display a talent or skill that their reality show allowed them to bring to public notice. But Kate is definitely struggling with that. Notice the difference between Kate’s appearance on “Dancing With the Stars” compared to Melissa Rycroft? Kate’s handlers really goofed up on thinking that would propel her forward. Her “Hollywood” hairdo and makeup (and plastic surgery – her eyes have had work I notice) can make her a star. I can tell that she wants to be a Kardasian. And yes, it all keeps her away from her kids A LOT. It is sad.

    Let me tell You something. A fish stinks from the head, but cleans from the tail.

    While I have never visited your site, I of course know who Kate Gosslin is. What I find so appalling is that in all the posts everyone seems to have a deep hatred for someone they only have a perception about. The old saying is still true; “people that live in glass houses should’nt throw stones.”
