They Said It, We Didn't: Kate Gosselin Won't "Compromise Morals" to "Get Paid Some Ridiculous Amount"
REVIEWING THE STUPID THINGS CELEBRITIES SAY: Kate Gosselin was on Access Hollywood to talk about something or other and said some highly rehearsed nonsense about money and kids and stuff.

Standards. Yeah, who needs 'em?
Welcome to REVIEWniverse's newest feature, They Said It, We Didn't. It's the feature that writes itself! Sometimes, celebrities go on TV, radio or the Interwebs and say things that make you scratch your head, hit Retweet and think, "They said it, we didn't." Or, alternatively, "Oh no she didn't, that lady is out her damn skull," except that doesn't really gel as an effective headline.
Ushering in They Said It, We Didn't is Kate Gosselin, who appeared on Access Hollywood Live this morning to talk about some coupon website she's involved with and whether she got a facelift. Ya know, the kind of intrinsically related topics most of us think about in between wrangling nearly 10 school-aged kids and hopping planes between talk-show appearances and paparazzi-swarmed marathons.
At one point, Billy Bush (oh, Billy) asked if she'd ever take the bait and reunite with ex-hubby Jon Gosselin on-camera for the payday and publicity. Kate, reacting as if she'd never actually let a network film her family for a payday and publicity, mechanically declared, "You could offer me every last dollar on the planet. I don't work for money. I cannot compromise my morals and standards in order to get paid some ridiculous amount of money. I'll never frame another film of TV with Jon again, because I don't think it's healthy or beneficial for my kids to watch, so there's no point."
Sounding rigid and forced, as if simply miming passive-agressive PR copy (hmmmm), Gosselin handled the wholly merited question as if she were Bill Clinton denying "sexual relations with that woman" or Richard Nixon assuring a nation he was "not a crook." And, as with both those examples, we suspect that reality TV's queen mother is full of shit.
But hey, they said it, we didn't.
IN OTHER WORDS: As always, celebrities think we're the stupid ones.
