I would not make that assumption. And even if that assumption were correct, it would only be correct until she changes her mind about her goals. Her choice.A harrowing story indeed. It doesn't make sense to me that any woman would subject herself to such extremeties to become a mother if she wasn't inclined to favor children over career
History is, indeed, the operative word. They are now promoting her, individually, without kids. She does appearances on the View and ET. Sans kids. To me, it appears that she has changed directions and wants a career on TV without kids. It looks like she might achieve this.It was that concept that sold TLC on doing a TV show and the rest, as they say, is history.
We do not get to define what this woman's choices are. I don't believe, for a second, that she is locked into a 2-dimensional brand. Producers want HER for ratings boosts, not her kids. I feel she is entitled (reiterating here) to choose whatever career path she wants. Thank God she's not trying to raise those kids on a nursing degree (not a B.S., but a hospital nursing school degree; neither Kate nor John graduated from college ). They would be impoverished. Incidentally, both she and Jon have stated that they did not plan for multiples, but knew it was a possibility when taking fertility drugs. She did want another child and could not conceive one. They assumed the risk of multiples - which is different than planning for them.It's not an either/or choice for Kate. Her career IS her kids. Without them, she would still be a nurse in Reading PA, earning well below multi-millions.
The automatic derision of her by some is both amusing and perplexing to me. She's like the proverbial red flag in front of a bull. Ironically, this seems to just enable her to be more and more successful. The more controversial she is, the bigger her paychecks are. The only thing I ever thought ill of her for was her constant tabloid/Internet whining. I don't see much of her complaining on the Internet or in the tabloids anymore. That seems to be well in the past. History
Unless Kate is successful in re-branding herself, she too will be history (at least in terms of a television career). I hope she is successful in her plans, and that Jon is, too. Even if she is not, she will have the capital to pursue anything she turns her lights to. I wish them all every blessing.
