If you've ever seen the newly rebranded Jon and Kate Plus 8 or Dancing with the Stars, you know that Kate Gosselin has been wearing out her welcome on the main stage.

That is to say, she's overworking her 15 minutes of fame and isn't above selling herself or her children for a little cash.

Given these facts, it's surprising to announce that Kate Gosselin might just be telling the truth.

The company suing her for $10,476 in unpaid marriage counseling fees? Their counselor was probably Jon Gosselin's life coach.

In a lawsuit by Pennsylvania's Creative Energy Options and Dr. Sylvia Lafair, Kate Gosselin is accused of having requested that the company send a therapist to Los Angeles to provide marriage counseling to her and now ex-husband Jon Gosselin.

But, as Kate's friends tell PopEater, Jon Gosselin repeatedly blamed the end of his marriage on Kate's refusal to seek counseling.

Instead, they tell the gossip site that Creative Energy Options provided Jon Gosselin with $10,476 worth of life coaching.

This blogger is inclined to believe them.

The company's website touts their services as workplace team building, behavior, and leadership counseling, not family therapy. Same goes for their LinkedIn profile.

Even if the services were for Jon's life coach, Kate may still be liable.

Pennsylvania divorce law mandates that debts accrued during marriage be divided equitably upon divorce. Chances are that their final divorce decree requires them to split any debts that come to their attention in the future, meaning that Kate may have to pay half.
