Kate Gosselin on Her Hair: "Everybody Wants It"

First there was “The Farrah,” then “The Rachel,” and now, “The Gosselin”? Jon & Kate Plus Eight‘s famous mom is known almost as much for her amped up, asymmetrical hairdo as her brood of eight kids — and recent marital scandals. And when the PEOPLE cover-star sat down with Entertainment Weekly recently to talk about living in a fishbowl, she also dished on her distinctive do. While the reality star doesn’t reveal whether she’s actually named the look, she does respond, “It’s my attitude! Everybody wants it. It’s work.” The secret to getting the style right? “I have very, very thick hair, so it’s not going to work for everybody. I’ve seen people come through the book line with thin hair and [it] just won’t work. My hair stylist gets calls from all across the country.” Tell us: Do you want to try Kate’s look?

I think Kates hair has come a looooong way from the beginning of the show….its getting better…and i dont think she was referring to MY HAIR, everybody wants it…she said its my attitude…everybody wants it! I love Kate and the show!!

She looks like she was rejected from A Flock of Seagulls, and that says a lot.

Yes Kate, everyone wants your hair. Everyone wants to be you. Get over yourself!!!! There are tons of flattering short cuts for women, this is NOT one of them.

Must be nice to have so much notoriety. Most women with even one child can barely muster the energy to make themselves presentable to the world…Whilst Kate gets a personal stylist, free cosmetic surgery, etc.

Why do these mega-families get lavished with so much undeserved attention/praise anyway? Thanks for polluting the earth with all the extra diapers and waste, guys. We really needed it.

It’s sad when an individual starts out with good intentions and morphs into this hot mess.

Your hair is not attractive. I don’t know anyone in their right mind who would ask for a reverse mullet. The color is pretty, the length of the longest part is nice. Grow out that mess in the back.

Being in the public eye has ruined your marriage – um, get out? Live out your contract then shut-down production. I’m sure you’re enjoying the $$, but at what expense?

Delusion does not serve you well. You seem arrogant, self-centered and a less than stellar role model for parents. Get over yourself and re-evaluate your priorities.

Oh, and fix your hair…

Uh, it is right out of the 80’s…Blecchhh!

I see some VERY jealous people here…
You look good Kate!

Oh, no, no, no! Kate’s hair is undoubtedly her worst physical feature. I think it makes her look about 10 years older than she actually is. NOT GOOD, Kate, not at all. But boy, she sure does love herself these days. I miss the down-to-earth Kate who didn’t wear designer labels and cared most about making sure her kids were well taken cared for.

Her marriage is on the rocks and she’s talking about her HAIR??? Lady, get over yourself and stop being such a media wh**e already! Sorry, but I can’t stand her on the show and now this? No wonder her husband was looking elsewhere.
Both of them should get off television and focus on putting their life together – they have eight little children that need their parents! Care about your kids – not you! You brought them into the world, now be responsible and help them when they need you most. The best thing a parent can give a child is love for their other parent.
