What About Beth?

After watching an interview on Fox, I realized that the hosts interviewing the Gosselins must not even do a minimum amount of research on their subject. If you were doing an interview based on a book, wouldn't you wonder where the other author is? Wouldn't you mention all the authors named on the book? Although I don't fault anyone for not wanting to read this nonsense, in most interviews regarding a book, the interviewers have actually read the book,. Either the interviewers and their staff are incompetent or the Gosselin publicist has forbade questions regarding Beth. I go with the former since Robin Roberts mentioned Beth during GMA.
I wonder what is going through Beth and Bob's minds these days? What about their lovely daughters, one of whom was the twin's best friend? Do they still attend school with her? What about the precious older girl that was coincidentally registered with Nannies For Hire? Do the tups ask about her or Beth?
I had a chance to skim through Multiple Blessings at the bookstore. I read that Beth and Aiden have a special bond and that Beth would take Aiden home alone with her. He considers Beth one of his "mommies".
I really doubt that Beth cowrote the book to make money. But, you would think she would want a little recognition, or would she? Is she embarrassed to be associated with the Gosselins? I hope Beth realizes that no one sees her in a bad light for trying to protect Kate and for trying to help Kate get "her" story out.
I have to admit curiosity has the best of me right now and I would love to know what exactly happened between Beth and Kate to have caused them to part ways.

I can't even imagine what these people tell their kids about the people who disappear from their lives. I feel so bad for those kids.

Beth? Who's Beth? Oh that woman that used to help them out, don't ya know that rich people can hire people to do the same thing? Yeppers, and you don't have to associate with them on a personal level then.

From what I have read, TLC approached Bob (Beth's husband) about paying him for allowing the cameras to film on his property. Kate threw a hissy fit just like she did when TLC wanted to pay Jodi and allegedly said that no one was going to make money off her family except for her. Bob refused to allow the cameras to film there anymore. I am sure there is much more to the story than this but Beth has not been seen or heard from since the Utah episode. I also read that Beth was completely embarrassed by Kate's behavior on this trip and it was the last straw for her.

What exactly was Beth Carson embarrassed about on the Utah trip?
The only thing I can think of is when Kate broke down on the airplane because of the delays and airports being shut down due to the weather. Is that the reason?

Even though Kate's behavior on the plane would be enough for me to say "enough", I read that Beth was embarrassed by Kate's behavior while they were at the spa.

Was this captured on camera. What happen at the spa that embarrassed Beth?
Would one event end a friendship?
I'm not sure we will ever know for sure??
For all we know, they may still be friends off the camera??

Michelle, I am not sure of the specific behavior that Kate displayed at the spa, but I am willing to bet that her behavior on this entire trip coupled with everything else sealed the deal for Beth and she walked out of the Gosselins life forever. Beth has a wonderful loving family that supports her and although she must miss the kids terribly, I think she did what she though was best for everyone involved. Beth Carson seems to be one classy person, class is something Kate Gosselin will never ever possess no much how much money she makes through her exploitation of her children.

The behavior that embarrassed Beth during the Ski Trip episode was when Kate took to the couch with the "worst headache of her entire existence" moaning about herself and wathcing Jon, Beth and Kayla dress all the tups head to toe in ski gear, and then Kate miraculoulsy recovers when it is time for her and Kate to go to the spa. Beth is clearly embarrassed by Kate's behavior as they are going to the spa. Beth has not been seen on the show since that episode.

I do not believe that just that one event destroyed the friendship. I think Beth has seen how Kate is over time and, being the true friend that she was, had excused or rationalized, and even defended Kate. I think that moment was just the straw that broke the camel's back. Or there could have been other things going on off camera that we viewers are not privy to.

Whatever the reason, Beth is clearly no longer a part of the Gosselin kids' lives. Another casualty of Kate's using people up and throwing them away.

Beth did not fly home with them from Utah because she returned early to be home for Taliah's birthday.
