Kate Gosselin fired from coupon blogging gig due to "authenticity" issue
UPI News Service, 10/16/2012
Kate Gosselin has been fired as a blogger from CouponCabin, Chief Executive Officer Scott Kluth said Tuesday.
"Some nine-plus years ago, I started CouponCabin with the thought of creating a single website that had all the best coupons," Kluth said in a letter on the website. "Along the way, we've helped our users collectively save hundreds of millions of dollars. 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," the letter said. "Ms. Gosselin's contributions garnered both positive attention and criticism, but as always, I respect and appreciate your candid opinions, which often encourage us not to lose sight of our mission -- to help you save money. We wish Kate, her family and her support staff all the best."
