Elisabeth Hasselbeck to Kate Gosselin: 'Get a job!'


This morning on The View, Elisabeth Hasselbeck said that Jon & Kate Plus Eight should no longer exist (“They shouldn’t have a show”) and that Kate Gosselin should “get a job.” When co-host Sherri Shepherd noted that the Gosselins had essentially given up their jobs to work for their reality show — i.e., that this, in addition to parenting, is Kate’s job — Hasselbeck said vehemently, “I don’t care!… It’s not healthy for the kids.”

“Get the camera off the kids!” said Hasselbeck.

Barbara Walters, who was the only person on the View panel who admitted to watching Jon & Kate, said that she thought that “if you have more than five children, you shouldn’t be allowed to get divorced.”

The audience applauded enthusiastically. 

Do you agree with Hasselbeck?

    She is right, but Elizabeth should get a job too.

    What does she know about them, their kids, or what’s best for their kids??? She’s judgmental, obnoxious and pain in the $#%.

    • Lilly

      I agree that Elizabeth is a huge pain but I do agree with her that Kate needs to get over herself and find a real job. She had her 15 minutes of fame and now it’s over…What does she expect…

  • ~~~~

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    I hate hasselback everytime she opens her mouth she makes herself sound stupid…the reality show is a job…and if she doesn’t agree with it fine but sometimes she should just keep her mouth shut especially since it was a reality show that essentially launched her career. Get off your high horse elizabeth.

      Elizabeth Hasselback did get launched from a reality show. Whats her big deal over Kate? There have been many large families in this country raised by single parents and the children turn out fine. If Kate quit working today and stayed home with her kids fulltime does that gauarentee her kids will be better off? Please get a grip people. Whether you love or hate Kate shes here to stay. Her children are wonderful and she has done a good job.

      I agree that Elizabeth Hasselback is hateful and stupid. She is the reason I don’t watch The View. Kate works hard at keeping a balance in her home life, raising her children and the reality show which is her best source of income. This is her job although she makes it look easier. Hasselback always fails to see the bigger picture and to appreciate the excellent job that kate does on and off camaras

    Not a huge fan of Elizabeth, but doesn’t she design and sell a line of ladies wear as well as her gig on The View? That sounds like work to me (in reference to the poster who said she should get a job).
    Kate is at least employable (she’s a registered nurse) – Jon on the other hand lacks work as well as social skills.

    • Kathryn

      With all of the publicity she has I doubt she could actually get hired as a nurse.

  • Mike

    Talking for an hour on daytime TV doesn’t seem to be a strenuous job.

    • Anna

      She’s able to support her kids from talking an hour on a daytime TV show.
      Don’t even try to say that Kate does the same thing, Elisabeth doesn’t use her kids to get on TV

  • Andy

    Did I read this right? Is Elisabeth really criticizing someone else for trying to do EXACTLY what she did, capitalize on “reality” TV to get a job they would never have a chance of landing otherwise?

  • jennifer

    The group over at vostuu found out about this last week and uploaded a “behind the scenes” video of Jon and Kate discussing it with the producers to the over at http://vostuu.com/watch28015.html … they ALSO uploaded the divorce papers for any of you who want to see them to http://www.vostuu.com/file2018451.html

    If this is the only way they can get financial support and the kids get some personal time to deal with the divorce then I think it is okay. I think that a divorce is difficult for children whether they are being filmed or not. Getting off a reality show won’t fix their marriage. Also, I don’t think there is anything wrong with showing the kids while they’re doing fun activities like apple picking and stuff.

  • arahsae

    Maybe Hasselbeck capitalized on reality television to get a job, but at least her job doesn’t revolve around exploiting her own children.

  • Adam

    I agree with what she said, but this lesson or lecture should NOT be given by her lol Wow… hypocrisy at its best.

  • kfann

    I have to say I rarely agree with Elisabeth, but this time I think she said it best!

  • Jon

    I rarely agree with Elisabeth, but this time she got it right.

  • Jenn

    Elisabeth makes me nuts, but I agree with her on this one. How can the show even go on? How painful will it be to watch? this show helped tear this family apart and they still want to go on with it? The show will eventually end and they will have to fond another way to support their faimly. I suggest they end it now, try and work on their relationship and, as Bitsy said, get a job.

  • Artemis

    Right…Kate should get a job? So the kids would lose their Dad…and have their Mom go to work everyday? Elizabeth you are such a dumb tool.
