WOW. Oh, it was aired, all right. There is so much to be said about how ungracious Kate was. About how she used manipulation on her children, who were having a great time and didn't mind the cold. About how she had a patented meltdown again.
Note: I'll just say that I am not a fan of Sarah Palin's politics. I commend her on doing her best to be a gracious hostess, determined to show another family how wonderful Alaska is. I'd go camping with her.
Now I want to focus on just one statement of Kate's: "Why would you pretend to be homeless?"
I'm going to quote Bobby Hankinson here:
That's right. Because homeless people are just hanging out in tents, eating moose hot dogs and roasting marshmallows in North Face jackets. That's exactly what it's like.
You can read the rest of Bobby's review here.
So she thinks what they were experiencing was what homeless people experience. TLC, if you want more footage of Kate being an entitled bitch, may I suggest that you send her to a homeless shelter? Let her see up front and personal what it truly means to be homeless. Let her meet people who could eat for a month if given the money that is spent on Kate's hair extensions. And let her have another meltdown on camera when forced to serve food to them.
