Saturday night a poster by the name of Sunfire paid a visit to IW. She insinuated that she was an insider and guess what…..it turns out she just might be.
Someone mentioned to us that she had posted information about Kate Gosselin and the Australian trip on INF Daily prior to the trip. It turns out she did. Since it is sometimes hard to find comments on these threads, you can click on this screen shot to enlarge and read here:
In fact, it turns out Sunfire is quite prolific with her Gosselin commenting. Her posts can be seen on BKIA’s site, TMZ, Perez Hilton and the aforementioned INF Daily. She nearly always presents as an insider, but is careful not to reveal anything that would prove this to the reader. Her recent posts have included details about the Australia trip (such as the return date, which appears to be accurate). She also spends a lot of time defending Jon Gosselin and Ellen Ross. She takes swipes at Kate too (in fairness, she isn’t the nastiest Kate Hater, but that says more about her competition than it does about her).
Here’s where it gets interesting. We decided to do a little “Penn Mommy” investigation on Ms. Sunfire and what do you think we found out? Well, Sunfire is (or was) a government worker for the state of PA! The Department of Environmental Protection, to be exact. (No, we will not be sharing her real name).
Now who else do we know who is a government worker in PA? Thinking. Thinking. Oh yeah, I think I got it!
Of course, there is no proof that Ellen (or friends of Ellen?) is leaking information to Sunfire. Sunfire could just be making this stuff up and so far been lucky that her invented posts about the Gosselins have proved accurate. That said, it is another piece of evidence added to a pile of evidence that suggests that Jon and Ellen are less than discreet in the information they chose to share and who they choose to share it with.
Why is this a problem? Because Jon’s supporters have been beating the drum for quite some time that Jon wants privacy and anonymity for both himself and his children. If that is really the case, he needs to take a good long look at what information he is sharing and with whom. Say what you will about Kate, but she keeps a very tight and small circle of friends and advisors. Leaks rarely occur from the Kate camp. Or course, Jon can conduct his life as he chooses. He will be judged accordingly, however, just as Kate is mercilessly judged.
