Kate Gosselin fired from coupon blogging job over "authenticity" issue

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 10/17/2012 

Kate Gosselin has been fired from her blogging gig with CouponCabin because of an "authenticity" issue, according to the coupon website.

"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," CouponCabin CEO Scott Kluth said in a statement released on the website.

The former Kate Plus 8 star's alleged lack of "authenticity" could be interpreted in several ways, and Kluth's statement did not include additional clarification.

"I started CouponCabin with the thought of creating a single website that had all the best coupons... no gimmicks, no fluff, just a site that was easy to use and that had great deals," Kluth explained.

"It's with this that I am writing to inform you of our decision to discontinue Ms. Gosselin's feature blog on 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."

While Kluth's letter also didn't elaborate on the "series of events" which led to Gosselin's dismissal, a source told RadarOnline the former reality TV star was "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."
