But, my surprise aside, the idea that Kate Gosselin’s publisher might consider nixing her book on cooking for the family because she and her husband are now divorcing seems a bit knee-jerky. And let me state here that I have never seen Jon & Kate Plus 8 - we can’t get cable where I live.
Tim Penning, assistant professor of communications at Grand Valley State University in Michigan, said the publisher is probably going to need to hold off.According to the USA Today article, “The 240-page hardcover is expected to feature Kate Gosselin's nutritious recipes, advice on "how to craft family traditions that create happy memories," and "meaningful mealtime blessings…"
"It would be a fine line for them to try to sell this book with the kind of revelations that have happened," said Penning, who teaches public relations. "I think the public generally understands that it was a good idea, but times have changed.”
Seems to me, those things are just as important, if not more so, for divorced families.
