It looks like the busy mom of 8, Kate Gosselin, can relate to a lot of regular folks in another way today: she lost her job! After a nearly year-long relationship blogging for and promoting CouponCabin, Scott Kluth, the company’s founder and CEO wrote on the site today that,
“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.”
Not authentic? Not wonderful? Ouch!
No one likes getting a pink slip, but this one is especially caustic. Scott Kluth, tell us how you really feel! Obviously Mr. Kluth is unhappy with something that transpired between Kate’s team and Coupon Cabin. We certainly understand when celebrities and the companies they endorse part ways after a contract dispute or disagreement. We have to wonder though, is this explanation a wise decision? Did Mr. Kluth forget that Kate’s fans are used to an upbeat message about Kate’s busy household? Instead, fans were greeted with a peevish post barely disguising displeasure. What do you think about the way Coupon Cabin handled Kate’s departure?
