Sergeant Asshole McPlasticFace tells her child army that she (read: the producers) have all sorts of 'fun things' planned for Spring Break. Nobody makes 'fun things' sound like the opposite of fun the way Kate Gosselin does. After 13-year-old Mady lets her mom know that she isnít into 'fun things,' Kate goes full dramatic Game of Thrones and tells her daughter that she has one last chance at REDEMPTION! ...Basically, Kate Gosselin knows this is really HER show and the bitch is going to perform.

After Kate and Madyís little power-struggle, Kate takes her daughterís cell phone away and you can almost feel her dark orb of a heart throb with glee when she does it. Kate tells her best friend, the camera, that she got her kids cell phones and iPads just so she can take them away when they misbehave and so that her evil powers can regenerate from their cries and moans...And what I donít understand is, thereís 8 of those kids. Canít they band together and go after her Children of the Corn-style? They can shoot it for another 2-hour special called 8 Minus Kate.
