Gosselin ousted from her job

From reality star to blogger, it seems like the mom of eight just can't hold down a job as says goodbye to Kate Gosselin today.

It seems like "You're fired" is the buzz phrase of the day. First, Jill Zarin and her refusal to accept her dismissal from The Real Housewives of New York City and now, Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Kate Gosselin finds herself unemployed. Last November, the reality star was hired by as a columnist to give advice about saving money on a budget.

That job didn't even last a year — as of Oct. 16, Gosselin was fired. CouponCabin CEO Scott Kluth wrote on the "Kate Gosselin Savings Tips" blog, "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."

While that statement says very little about why she was fired, it's clear that the mom of eight wasn't fitting in with her co-workers. According to RadarOnline, company employees found Kate "difficult to work with, often making outrageous demands and just didn't fit in with the company as a whole. Kate thought that because she was a celebrity she could do or write whatever she wanted, but that's not the way it works."

The only response from Gosselin today was a vague tweet that exclaimed, "Good afternoon! I'm alive! I've been super busy working away! I'm having lots of fun and can't wait to share! No worries..we will chat soon! XO." It seems as though the former TLC star might have something to announce, but she certainly isn't going to address today's breaking news.
