Followers of Kate Gosselin’s Twitter feed witnessed a second online spat in as many weeks as Kate criticized Em Tanner Designs for using her to market products. It started when a fan asked Kate about the pink calendar she used on the show and later mentioned finding it on the Em Tanner website. Kate praised the calendar but accused the designer of marketing products by using her name without permission. Em Tanner defended herself by tweeting,
@Kateplusmy8 @Jessandken04 lol geez UNREAL…we designed a calendar among many other things FOR YOU FOR FREE not to market using YOU!
Kate challenged the designer to admit that she was asked not to call it “Kate’s Calendar” and Em Tanner corrected her,
@Kateplusmy8 umm no not to call kate gosselin calendar. will be changing name anyway cuz i cant stand u. haha.
It didn’t end there. Kate complained about being used and Em Tanner tweeted a series of denials and insults calling Kate “a piece of work,” “a winch,” “Khate,” “worse dancer,” and “miserable.” Then she took her defense attack to her Facebook page hosting a picture of a Halloween witch and a number of comments supportive of Em Tanner insulting to Kate.
Em Tanner promised to change the name of the calendar but despite her obvious disdain for Kate Gosselin, it’s still called “Kate’s Design.” For someone who insisted to Kate she would “NOT use YOU as a marketing tool,” she sure has a lot of Kate Gosselin on that site. As of this afternoon, Em Tanner links to clips of Jon and Kate plus Eight and Kate Gosselin is quoted praising the Original Funky Plates! Maybe she WOULD use KATE as a marketing tool?
