Jon Gosselin drops f-bomb when discussing ex-wife Kate, says she can 'die' for all he cares -- VIDEO

If 2007 was the year of Jon & Kate Plus 8, 2014 is the year of Jon & Kate Plus Hate. See what I did there?

In this clip from the next episode of Couples Therapy, Jon Gosselin vents about his relationship with his ex-wife Kate. At first, he speaks rationally about it “hurts” that she’s suing him. But after a heated phone call with the mother of his children, Jon quickly loses his cool.

After having gone two weeks without speaking to his kids, Jon says Kate can go ahead and “f—in die.” He wraps things up with one final thought about his ex: “What a sh–ty human being.” Yikes; here’s hoping Kate’s (and the kids’) cable package doesn’t include Vh1.

Kate Gosselin fired from blogging job

Here’s a harsh dose of reality: Reality “star” Kate Gosselin has been fired from the website CouponCabin after 11 months of blogging for the site.

“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. It’s with this that I am writing to inform you of our decision to discontinue Ms. Gosselin’s feature blog on CouponCabin.com….We wish Kate, her family and her support staff all the best,” founder and CEO Scott Kluth said in a post on the site.

Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli's split hits reality: Can they learn from other failed-on-reality-TV relationships?

90210 vet Jennie Garth and Twilight star Peter Facinelli announced their divorce yesterday after 11 years of marriage. The divorce will be dealt with on new CMT reality show Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country, slated to premiere April. But how?

Today in 'Seriously?!': Kate Gosselin hosts a cruise

Would you want to be trapped on a boat with this woman? Royal Caribbean has tapped former TLC reality star Kate Gosselin to host a cruise on its brand new ship, Allure of the Seas. According to Royal Caribbean’s Web site for the Aug. 12-19 cruise, fans will take home a a commemorative personalized gift and have plenty of one-on-one time with Gosselin during a games day, Q&A session, craft class, shore excursion, and several meals including a private farewell dinner.

Kate Gosselin on 'Today' claims fans 'are devastated,' says Jon wants 'mediocre for his kids'

Oh, PopWatchers, aren’t you just going to miss the all-around warmth and charm of Kate Gosselin? Did you grow to love her kids more than your own? Have I already laid on the sarcasm too thick? If you answered ‘Yes, of course, you jerk!’ to any of these questions, then by all means, read on.

While visiting Today to promote the final episode of her once-massively popular reality series Kate Plus 8 (formerly Jon & Kate Plus 8), the TV mom spoke rather somberly with host Matt Lauer about what she called “the end of an era.”

Gosselin said she was not only sad for the Kate Plus 8 fans (“They’re devastated. They’re saying, you know, you’re the neighbor moving far away and we won’t see you again,” she said), but also her co-stars children: “I feel sad for my kids because of all of the opportunities that they’re now questioning.” READ FULL STORY

Kate Gosselin lands on Anderson Cooper's RidicuList for her babysitter blowout, general awfulness

If this clip of Kate Gosselin garnered this kind of reaction from Anderson Cooper, one can only imagine/look forward to what Joel McHale will have to say about it. During last night’s Anderson Cooper 360, the silver fox wasn’t having it with dreadful reality TV mom Kate Gosselin and rightly placed her on his RidicuList. Only this time, no one was laughing. Not Gosselin, who was pissed off at her babysitter Ashley for… something; not Steve the Security Guard whose slice of “reserved pizza” (you can do that?!) was handed to him by the peasant hands of a lowly child; not babysitter Ashley who reached her breaking point with her harpy employer; and definitely not Cooper, who documented the Kate Plus 8 moment for his viewers with total contempt. His reaction at 2:39 really says it all, doesn’t it, PopWatchers? Watch the full clip below: READ FULL STORY

Kate Gosselin: 'I'm definitely ready to start dating.'

When future generations try to pinpoint the specific moment when the whole notion of “celebrity” entered an eerie post-modern period — a period in which people who were only famous for being famous managed to consistently become steadily more famous by consistently remaking themselves in their own famous image — they will probably look the summer of 2009, when Jon and Kate Gosselin suddenly transformed from a lovably harried pair of reality-show parents into a demonically everpresent pair of multimedia personalities, their messy divorce playing out in tabloids, on the internet, and on their own TV show. While Jon quickly opted to avoid the spotlight, a year of infamy followed for Kate, culminating in a performance of “Paparazzi” on Dancing With the Stars that would make Marshall McLuhan‘s head explode. But anyhow, the important thing is that, as Kate told Today this morning, she’s ready to start dating again, which is certainly good news for everyone, although representatives for the male race did not respond to EW’s calls for comment.

'Kate Plus 8' returns April 4... but do you care anymore?

Like that pimple on your chin you so desperately tried to extinguish before meeting your boyfriend’s mother for the first time, Kate Gosselin is baaaaaack! TLC has confirmed with EW that the much-maligned reality star is set to return with new episodes of Kate Plus 8 on April 4 — but, honestly, are you really interested in watching anymore?

We first tuned into Jon & Kate Plus 8 for the adorable factor: Eight huggable wee ones making mischief — how could we resist? Then there was the scandal factor: The divorce! The Ed Hardy! Holy midlife crisis! Then we watched Gosselin shimmy her way into disaster status, courtesy of Dancing With the Stars. But now, after drinking Charlie Sheen’s tiger blood and watching Lindsay Lohan defend her alleged sticky fingers, Gosselin feels like a scandal-prone reality star from a distant — and, somehow, much more innocent — time. (Sheen sees your divorce, Kate, and raises you a machete.) In other words: Hey, Kate Gosselin: 2010 wants its trainwreck back!

So, yes, Kate Plus 8 is returning this April, when TLC will air footage of Gosselin and the children traveling through Australia. But is there any way we’d still laugh at shots of her swimming with sharks, unless we portal back in time a year and a half? In this day and age, is her trainwreck simply not gruesome enough? PopWatchers: Will you watch Kate Plus 8?

2010's Most Bizarre Reality TV Moment: What's your pick?

“Most Bizarre” seems like the reality TV equivalent of “Best.” You gotta consider your genre!

It’s been a ridiculous year in “reality.” Bristol Palin outlasted fallen pop star Brandy in a televised ballroom dancing popularity contest. Ellen DeGeneres was suddenly sitting on Simon Cowell’s lap and then –poof!– both of them were gone. The Hills may have been fake molehills all along. And bangin’ Gretchen Jones took center stage on Project Runway, transforming the competition series into a riveting character study that often seemed like a senior-year elective for psych majors (PS 801: Raging Narcissism in the Age of Reality Television).

Kate Gosselin goes camping on 'Sarah Palin's Alaska': My body is refudiating this teaser clip

The idea of watching Kate Gosselin and ex-governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin together is a little like drinking a can of Four Loko. You know it will be disgusting, but you can’t resist it — even if you will likely black out the whole traumatic experience anyway. (Or at least want to.) So, needless to say, it will be tough to avoid watching the Kate Plus 8 star appear on this Sunday’s episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, in which the subjects of tabloid fodder go camping and attempt to out-do each other when it comes to high-decibel sentence delivery. (I’m with you, Kate.) But here’s a selling point, guys: There are bears. Watch a promo for the episode after the jump.
