How Much Fame Can You Get Out Of A Weekend?


Although I am fairly tired of the entire Jon & Kate media parade, one thing I am not tired of is Kate Major. Oh, I don't have much use for her as a celebrity, but she is one of the biggest topics of conversation simply because everyone is curious to how far someone can take a weekend with Jon Gosselin. Kate Major was the Star Magazine reporter who managed to turn an interview with Jon Gosselin into a photo opportunity for herself, some headlines and some kind of freaky sex weekend in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan, his girlfriend, Jon and one of the Real Housewives.

Last night she was on E! and gave a really long interview and despite her protestations to the contrary you could tell she was loving the attention. The question is whether last night was the peak of her fame? Can she take it any further? She is not stupid and having been a tabloid reporter she knows some tricks. I know she was counting on Jon being more into her than Hailey Glassman, but that didn't happen.

To me, Kate is the epitome of someone becoming famous for absolutely nothing. She went to dinner with him in New York and got her face plastered all over the internet and tabloids. Can you make 15 minutes out of that? Can you make more than 15 minutes out of it? She has been the topic of conversation because the game is what move should she play next to keep the fame clock ticking? Does she go the Playboy route? Does she keep doing interviews? Does she try and get Jon back? Doe she have sex in public with Michael Lohan? One thing that is interesting is that she says she has proof that she and Jon were romantic. I don't know if that means Michael filmed them together or if there are just a couple of love notes, but maybe the proof will buy her some more time.

At this point she may be in a box and out of options, but it is fun to watch her try and cling to the 15 minutes.

Have you seen the crap they put on tv these days? If she's clever enough, she'll end up with her own reality show. Puke!

Pookie said...

omg, now if only she'd hook up w/ the ick. nast. guy...teehee.

"Major Love" - she tries to find someone even more pathetic than Jon.

BigMama said...

oh, come on. She is totally going to show up pregnant...Then it will be Jon and Kate plus 8 minus Kate plus Kate 2.0 and an Ooops. or something like that...

She could always do a self help show. "How to be a Famewhore"
It can show all the ways you can get 15 mins of fame.

The first ep. could be called Banging Your Way to Fame- How to turn his 15mins into YOUR 15mins of stardom.

Maybe her and Sara Larson could team up. Start a school or something.

Seems to me she got humiliated when she couldn't hook Jon for herself, so she's decided to go big and make the most from her stupid decision to quit her job. Regardless, I agree we haven't heard the last!

My guess is that (a) she's a leetle bit crazy and (b) Jon is in kind of an awkward position because he can't really come out and say "we never had a relationship, I just fucked her" because it will make him look bad.

Hah Hah on Jon. He needs to be more careful where he puts it.

Enty says "To me, Kate is the epitome of someone becoming famous for absolutely nothing." Well so are the Gosselins in my opinion. Why are these people famous?

RocketQueen said...

And on a side note - Guiliana Rancic is absolutely hideous. I can't believe she hosts anything.

I have never understood her decision to quit her job to go screw that loser Jon Gosselin. What did she call it...conflict of interests? I really don't think the rags give a hoot if you're screwing a subject; either don't write about him or let someone else do it. TWIT!

I hope to hell this guy has been fixed. The money will run out soon, and he obviously has no ability to provide for the 8 kids he already has.

Ah, a new candidate for the Loser Cruise to Nowhere! Although I must reconsider dumping all of the bodies in the ocean, what with out new "green" way of thinking and all. I guess we could cremate them...

figgy said...

Okay, I admit to seeing her being interviewed on E! News or something.

When she referred to John as "a celebrity" I just about choked on my own vomit.

@Dianne P, you are SO right! haha

If this girl plays her cards just right, I think we might be looking at next season's Bachelorette.
