Magisterial District Judge Gerald Feissner ruled May 13 that the "Kate Plus Eight" star must pay Sylvia Lafair for travel to Los Angeles to counsel the couple whose marriage famously disintegrated on cable TV.

According to published reports, Gosselin testified in court that she never had a contract with Lafair or Creative Energy Options, the company she heads in White Haven, Pa., Gosselin claimed she had her own counselor and that Lafair came to Los Angeles to work with her husband.
