Kate Gosselin is out of a job.
The former "Kate Plus 8" star has been fired from her position as a blogger for CouponCabin.com, the company's founder and CEO announced Tuesday.
"A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity, which we set out to build almost a decade ago, and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin," Scott Kluth wrote in a blog post on the website.
"It's with this that I am writing to inform you of our decision to discontinue Ms. Gosselin's feature blog on CouponCabin.com. Ms. Gosselin's contributions garnered both positive attention and criticism, but as always, I respect and appreciate your candid opinions, which often encourage us not to lose sight of our mission -- to help YOU save money," he added. "We wish Kate, her family and her support staff all the best."
Kluth did not provide any additional details.
Gosselin began blogging for CouponCabin last November, a few months after her TLC reality show was canceled. As of Wednesday morning, her posts can still be found on the website, the most recent one having been published on Oct. 15.
The TV personality, 37, appears to be taking her dismissal in stride. On Tuesday, she tweeted:
Good afternoon!I'm alive!I've been super busy working away!I'm having lots of fun and can't wait to share!No worries..we will chat soon! XO-- Kate Gosselin (@Kateplusmy8) October 16, 2012
