I understand that Kneepads has a job to do. Their job is to suck up to as many celebrities and publicists as possible. Their plan is that if they suck up enough then they will get cover stories from those same people and sell lots of magazines. Of course they pay for those cover stories anyway so I don't really see the point. Anyway, it is one thing to give yourself the brownest nose possible as they did in another story about Shania Twain (First came heartbreak, then a second chance at love. Next up for country superstar Shania Twain? Her own TV series.) That is typical People Magazine kiss ass.
However, when you compare someone who is having her 15 minutes because she has 8 children and compare that person to Lucille Ball you have gone way too far. This is what People said. "Not since the heyday of Lucille Ball has one woman been so visible on TV – and now it's Kate Gosselin's turn."
Lucille Ball was one of the funniest, most talented people to ever walk the earth. Any generation from any country in the world can watch an episode of I Love Lucy and laugh and be entertained. Tell me how Kate Gosselin does that. You are comparing one of the worlds greatest performers to a woman who was artificially inseminated. Just because someone is on television doesn't make them talented or a star. I have no idea what People is getting out of this, but it better sell them millions of issues because Lucille is probably rolling over in her grave right now.
