The Gosselin saga continues. And it’s taken a strange twist.

The usual sympathy that comes for the famous wife who’s been publicly humiliated by a cheating husband is nowhere to be found for Kate Gosselin.

The ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8‘ star is getting slammed in the media.

‘Kate Gosselin: Mom to Monster’ is the headline of the latest Us Weekly.

The mag claims “short-fused” Kate “fired 40 staffers in three months” and is “obsessed with her own celebrity.”

Baby nurse Angela Krall, who cared for the sextuplets for a year, reveals that Kate posted “detailed” and “demeaning” rules in every room, and “fired one woman for washing her hands in the kitchen instead of the bathroom.” “Kate flipped,” Krall tells Us. “She thought it was cross-contamination.”

That’s not the only new unflattering story targeted at Kate. Her own family has been blabbing to the tabloids.

Do Jon and Kate have an open marriage?

That’s the latest claim being made by Kate’s brother Kevin Kreider and his wife Jodi, who spoke exclusively to Radaronline.

There’s a ‘secret marriage contract,’ according to Kevin. He alleges that Kate told Jon their marriage was over and they should date others, but she wanted to keep up the marriage front–for ratings.

“This is a train wreck,” Jodi said.

Meanwhile, an even bigger furor has erupted around Kate Gosselin—over her hair.

Kate seems to think her frosted lopsided mullet is the bees knees.

“It’s my attitude! Everybody wants it…. My hair stylist gets calls from all across the country,” Gosselin told Us Weekly.

(Maybe all those people are calling to ask the stylist, ‘What were you thinking?‘)
