Kate Gosselin lands gig blogging about coupons
Sure, Kate Gosselin may have been a reality star, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know how to save money.
Her TLC show is over now, but it didn’t take long for her to find a new gig. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the mother of eight will be blogging about coupons for CouponCabin.com.
“No matter what your financial situation is, there’s no reason not to use coupons. It’s like free money in your pocket,” said Ms. Gosselin in a statement about her new job. “I’m thrilled to lend my expertise to CouponCabin.com, where you can easily find the best deals on practically everything.”
Ms. Gosselin will write a weekly post on topics such as stretching a budget for a large family, holiday shopping tips and gift ideas.
Her first post will premiere Nov. 22, and will give tips for handling the busiest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.
‘Sunny’ still a sunny spot for star Charlie Day
This has been quite the year for Charlie Day.
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” which premiered in 2005, remains a viable hit among cable comedies. He co-starred in the hit movie “Horrible Bosses” in the summer and has plenty of other big-screen opportunities coming his way. Yet he remains devoted to “Sunny,” which opened doors for him.
The star/producer/writer told Scripps Howard News Service he is amazed the raunchy comedy still has places to go.
“At the end of every season, we get the feeling, ‘Well, we’ve done it all. We can’t do anything else,’ ” Mr. Day said. “Then, the new season comes along, and we’re always doing more.”
“Sunny,” which airs at 10 p.m. Thursdays on FX, has at least two more seasons ahead of it and maybe more.
With co-stars Glenn Howerton and Rob McElhenney, Mr. Day is able to bust taboos of conventional television. This season, “Sunny” has taken uneasy stabs at child beauty contests and poked fun at New Jersey in the wake of “Jersey Shore.” Past episodes have touched on underage drinking and making money off abandoned children.
Mr. Day, however, said “Sunny” only works on those topics because a clear line is drawn between good and bad tastes.
