Kate Gosselin Absolutely Abhors Sarah Palin's Alaska

On last night's episode, Kate and her eight kids joined the Palins for a cross-promotional freezing cold, rainy camping trip in the Alaskan wilderness. Kate was "miserable," saying, "Why would you pretend to be homeless?" So she left.




The two women initially seemed to bond over complaints about the paparazzi on their respective properties, but that's where their similarities ended. Even before the actual camping trip began, while taking a bear safety course that involved shooting guns, Kate was grumpy, and seemed to know that what she was about to do bordered on the ridiculous.

She was about as fond of the gun-toting Palins as this guy:

The two families had to take seaplanes to their camping destination, which was in the middle of nowhere. Kate was freezing and complained the whole time.

And she wasn't a fan of moose dogs.

Her discomfort made everyone else uncomfortable, including Sarah, who persevered as long as she could with her trademark delusional optimism.

Eventually, Kate began to cry over the cold and lack of hand sanitizer, so she packed the kids up and left after a few hours. Sarah pretended to understand by saying, "I suppose if she took me to New York City or some red carpet event I'd be the same way."

I mean, maybe it was worst than we think. She does have 8 little kids to keep an eye on in the wilderness. And I go camping all the time, and while I enjoy it, I definitely understand how it can feel like hell on Earth. I remember once I was camping with my dad and had my period. Man, that was rough. It actually gave me the idea for a book I want to write - "Creative Ways I've Disposed of Tampons."

(Not really kidding. I think it'd be a funny book, I kinda wanna do it).
