Happy Father's
Day, Kate

Kate Gosselin was moved to tears Sunday over Twitter wishes for a happy Father's Day. Despite Jon Gosselin being alive and well, Kate was happy to accept credit for being both mom and dad to their eight children.

Happy Father's Day, Jon Kate Gosselin! The mother of twins and sextuplets now featured on Kate Plus 8 has caused a stir by taking credit for being both mother and father to her kids.

Kate Gosselin

The world knows Jon and Kate Gosselin may have had a rough relationship, but has she reached a new low by accepting Father's Day wishes? Jon and Kate filed for divorce over two years ago, but that doesn't change the fact that he is the father of Mady, Cara, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel!

Twitter followers of Kate Gosselin wrote messages to the reality star Sunday such as, "Happy Fathers Day to you Kate!!!! Double the work & 8x the duties!!!! The ultimate single Mama!!!!" and, "hi kate just wanted 2 tell u happy 'father' day might as well take credit 4 that u do it all+very well too... u r an awesome lady:)"

In reply Kate wrote, "So happy and was literally moved to tears to see some of my tweeties wishing ME a happy fathers day -- do feel like both. So hard!"

Do you think Kate Gosselin was out of line to happily accept Father's Day wishes?

Wow, you people are just cruel, Kate has to think about putting EIGHT children through college! I think it was VERY smart of her to do the television show, she has stated this as the primary motivation! I can't imagine what other job she could have that would provide her with adequate income to provide for 8 children on her own. Come on, wouldn't YOU have nannies and a housekeeper if you had 8 kids? I don't think that they should ever put more than a fertilized eggs at a time during in vetro fertilization because honestly, no one needs to have 6 children at a time! But that's what happened and she has 8 kids now and is doing the best she can. Jesus you guys should really get a life rather than picking on this woman.

@ Kate's fans, do you really think she does the work by herself, WAKE UP!! she has admitted she has a housekeeper, lawn person and 2 nannies, because of you fans she can afford to have a lavish life, she makes 250,000 an episode and book deals etc. she is a millionaire; stop feeling sorry for her!!! She wants you to think they are struggling, there are so many other single women out there with 5 or more kids barely making it, Kate is not one of them.

I can't believe this fool is still around!! Are there really people still watching KHATE Gosselin?!?!? I can't believe it!! She makes me sick. I couldn't watch or listen to one minute of her whiney voice and complaining ways ever again. I am stunned that she still has a show. I haven't seen her or looked her up in at least 6 months and accidentally did while looking up the Princess Kate and found that she is still around. Get a life people!!! There are so many good things on TV that watching this fool is totally wasting your life. GO AWAY KATE!!!

What an absolutely ugly woman! Her neck and jowls are all saggy and the spray-on tan deadens her skin. Ugh. Ugly Kate is not those children's father and showed how low-class she is by accepting Fathers' Day wishes.

She is a $ hungry loser, and sad excuse for a mother. Jon did not want the media attention, but she chose to ignore his wishes-no wonder the marriage broke up. She thinks she is a celebrity just because she gave birth to 6 kids through scientific methods?? See her on DWTS-she was the ultimate joke. PLEASE stop watching her show-I never have because this is just increasing her ratings-and stop enabling her stupidity. The kids are growing up, and will start to resent Mommie Dearest for parading them in front of the camera for her own benefit. They won't be cute forever, but will go through normal teenage years and rebellion. Then what will this stupid do-think anyone would want her?? Self-centered, control freak, and ugly on the inside as well as out.

Go away Kate!

Save Jon and the Gosselin 8.

Luey June 22, 2011 | 8:10 PM

Jon is a saint for having to endure Kate Gosselin's horrific need for media attention and her constant need to drag herself, her kids, and him constantly back into the media spotlight; and her need to constantly create "DRAMA" for the family. She is truly one sick, lying, person that has no credibility with the masses. Her recent TLC ratings stink, again, below 1 million, and she needs to start harping to the Enquirer or who ever will listen to start up that negative, poor me, press, once again for the millionith time. Micro mini skirts, high heels, helping the needy (but getting paid for it), bodyguard or security guy involvement, blah, blah. Jon, bravo to you and I am so sorry you chose to get involved with this crazy and hopelessly messed up woman.

Again Jon is not a saint. When he put that sign up on the house to stop TLC from filming it was a ploy to get them to drop the law suit. Eveyone forgets that this so call saint, used his children just as much or more than Kate. Also if you look at the children you can see they dearly love their mother. When Jon realized that no one wanted to see him on tv only then did he become this and I laugh out loud saying this a good father. One other point, HE SHOULD STILL SEND SUPPORT TO KATE FOR THE CHILDREN, HE IS THEIR FATHER AND AS SUCH HE SHOULD HELP WITH THE SUPPORT NO MATTER HOW MUCH SHE IS BRING IN. He is just like most men when the divorce case with children, the men forget to pay up.

have we forgotten all the crap jon pulled in the months after the split? yeah, she was hard on him, they could have worked thru that. i believe most of that was due to stress on her part. he was unfaithful and not once but several times. he did not work and could not help with expenses for a long time. she reamained stable for the kids by doing what she had to while he went crazy for awhile. she supported the family and maybe has all this time. i think now she has settled down and is becoming more her old self. we can not judge unless we walk a mile in someone else's shoes....

Sandy June 22, 2011 | 8:15 AM

Jon is a saint in my eyes. He took himself out of the public spotlight and stopped making a fool out of himself on TV, unlike Kate Gosselin. Kate continues to exploit her children and make a fool out of herself with no regard for her children. Kate is a liar and a hypocrite.

Lynda June 22, 2011 | 8:04 AM

Jon might not be a saint, but at least he gave up the public exploitation of his children. If Kate is the only parent the Gosselin kids can rely on, it is shameful and abusive. Stop exploiting your children Kate Gosselin. In the past he might have been running around like a jack..., but today it is Kate Gosselin that is running around and behaving like a jack...

ede1955 June 22, 2011 | 7:21 AM

OMG most of you are making Jon out as a saint. He did not care about his children when he was running around like a jacka** and he was not worried about his children then. Kate has been the only real parent that these children can count on. I guess that all of you Kate haters don't have anything better in your life so this is how you get your jollys. If you don't like her don't read about her or look at her shows. GROW UP

Marianne June 21, 2011 | 6:10 PM

Hey Kate, how about a nice cold Coca-Cola?

Jaime June 21, 2011 | 6:02 PM

Hey, Kate, could you please get me a cold COKE with ice?

Lucina June 21, 2011 | 4:29 PM

I totally agree with Linda. She makes digs at Jon all the time. If she doesn't show respect for their father her kids will never be respectful. She is disrepectful to alot of men I've noticed.

NotaKatefan June 21, 2011 | 10:08 AM

I doubt very much if Kate was actually moved to tears, This comment was directed to her fans who believe every lie she tells. She manipulates them to get ratings. People who personally know Kate, have worked for her, or live near her truely understand what a deceitful, selfish and abusive women she really is. She is pathetic.

WHAT?? June 21, 2011 | 4:16 AM

What is wrong with you moronic Kate fans? Are you blind or just plain old fashion stupid?? Probably just as crazy as your hero.. Have a wonderful exsistance and keep on watching your idol and coming soon to a strip club near you will be her money makers, err I mean kids as soon as they are 18.

Lorrie Olson June 20, 2011 | 10:28 PM

I highly doubt that anyone who has posted has eight children full time. Having one is hard enough, and yet you all think you can judge her so quickly. I am sure if someone followed you around taking pictures all the time you would not like what you see. A single or full time mom is mom and dad. He made the decision to be part time. marriage is forever and she did not make that decision for him, so do not blame and do not judge.

Lexy June 20, 2011 | 9:33 PM

Jon did the right thing by walking away from Kate. He still takes care of his children and there are a gazillion fathers out there in the world that are divorced and they are still good dads. Kate is mentally unstable. Anyone who would not walk away from this self-centered woman would be considered crazy in my view. Keep up the good work Jon. There are a lot of former fans of Jon and Kate Plus 8 that support your decisions.
