Kate Gosselin attended the Red Ball Gala on Saturday, March 10th. The gala is held yearly and this year it had a great location — the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. The Red Cross describes the purpose of the event as follows:
“All proceeds from the Red Ball will benefit the Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the Red Cross and the operations of our one-of-a-kind Red Cross House recovery facility located in West Philadelphia. Red Cross House is a stable environment designed to help families find shelter and recover from a disaster by supporting their emotional, spiritual and physical needs.”
Kate looked stunning in a dress by designer Mac Duggal. The dress was black and lacy and short! Let’s just say the dress showed off Kate’s toned legs to perfection!
It certainly appears that the Red Cross went all out creating an entertaining and magical night for all who attended. Many of the top restaurants in Philadelphia shared their talents to make the event a culinary delight for all. In addition to live music and art, the event featured professional tarot readings – and Kate was seen getting a reading!
The Red Cross indicated how happy they were to have Kate as a guest. Today they tweeted the following:
“Thanks @Kateplusmy8 for attending #RedBall12 last night. You were very gracious and kind. We are grateful for your support.”
Kate thanked them back and said it was her pleasure to attend.
The only unpleasant part of Kate’s participation was an awkward encounter on Twitter with a Philadelphia gossip blogger by the name of @iPhillyChitChat. He started tweeting about Kate this morning and promised a big story and “a shot that’s gonna be seen around the world.” Kate apparently was alerted that he was talking about her on Twitter and sent him a few frank tweets indicating she felt he was taking away from the event’s importance and message by spreading gossip about her. The blogger apparently asked for a picture of Kate with bodyguard Steve Neild during the event and Kate refused to comply. She did give him a picture of just herself. So maybe he was a little bent out of shape about that? I’m personally think he is was just trying to promote himself. Understandable. Kate does have name recognition! @iPhillyChitChat been tweeting that he will discuss both his huge scoop on Kate and Bravo’s Bethenny on Good Day Philadelphia on Monday morning. So — two reality TV divas for the price of one!? We will see what he has to say.
In any case, Kate’s weekend ended on a positive note when she tweeted about a party she was planning for the kids on Sunday night. Chinese food, soda (a rare treat), sundaes and a movie were all on the menu. Kate seems happiest when she is planning special times for her kids.
