The videotaped Alaska camping trip between reality star Kate Gosselin and political personality Sarah Palin was a 'nightmare,' a source told the National Enquirer.
According to the tabloid, Gosselin lasted just two hours in the woods, before storming off in tears. The story suggests Gosselin acted like a 'diva' upon finding out about the bathroom situation. For the record, Palin pleaded for her to stay.

What? I thought Sarah was supposed to be the diva!!
Why would Sarah Palin go camping with Kate Gosselin? I don’t get it.
Well, back to the drawing board on reality shows that have no studio breaks!
Bad judgement is becoming a Palin family trait.
Reality TV show money. I personally think Palin is lowering herself by doing the show.
I think one Kate is the one with bad judgment.
I’m having a hard time Sarah’s doing reality shows?
Why would a potential presidential candidate camp with a sleazy reality star? I thought Obama cheapened the presidency by going on The View and Leno. I guess she’s not the president, but still.
It’s all about Girl Power.
What? No porta potties?
Doing programs like that does very little to make Sarah look presidential and confirms a lot of people’s suspicions of her as more of a publicity hound/speechmaker than as a real leader of substance.
Is this some sort of joke? Why in the world would Sarah do this?
“SARAH PALIN bit her lip as KATE GOSSELIN melted down on their camping trip after the Plus 8 mom was handed a bucket with a toilet seat on top.”
I guess so people will take her seriously.
What's the bad judgment? If the story is to be believed, it wasn't Sarah who was acting silly. She may just show the reality TV viewers, who tend to suck up, unquestioningly, what the MSM says, that she's a level headed, wise woman. That sure would go a long way towards knocking down the media's portrayal of her, wouldn't it?
A bucket with a toilet seat on top.
Did Gosselin expect a heated toilet seat?
This looks like it is part of a project that Sarah Palin conceived, to show the riches of Alaska in a National Geographic like “reality show” format, and sell it to the Discover channel or someone similar. Well Sarah is a tough girl, and Kate is a tenderfoot, and I guess Kate didn’t understand thoroughly that it’s COOOOOOLD living out there with those grizzly bears! And you have to go to an outhouse too where your doo doo freezes before it hits the ground.
Oh well, on the second try, hopefully both ladies will understand the situation better, BEFORE facing the frost.
Indeed. Why would ANYONE agree to spend time with Kate Gosselin ?
Palin is a new new feminist, who does not have to stay stiff with dignity like the queen of England in order to return to the role.
It would appear that reality bit Kate on the @ss.
Let's not forget that before his gig as Governor, then President, Ronald Reagan was what folks considered a 'B' movie actor. Did his acting gigs make him unqualified for the Presidency?
I’m guessing Palin has no interest in being President?
I know Presidents don’t act “presidential” anymore, Bill Clinton appeared on MTV and talked about his underwear, etc... - but camping with Kate Gosselin? WTF??
This is the documentary about Alaska I guess.
Well, the great Alaskan waste doesn’t have a StarBucks every two miles. Sounds like that’s the take-home message from show #1
That had to be hilarious.
I got through maybe 20 minutes of Jon and Kate before saying John needs to get out of that marriage even if it means leaving the kids, but at the same time I applauded him at the time for at least trying to stick it out. That woman is a train wreck psycho b!+ch.
This was I figure about 6 months before the breakup and his affair.
Too bad he didn’t just leave and had to train wreck himself in the process.
Anyways doesn’t surprise me one bit she couldn’t hack it in the woods for even just a few hours.
Palin camping with a “reality” star is not exactly a sound decision if she is seeking credibility to be President.
“Is this some sort of joke? Why in the world would Sarah do this?”
She can’t go to the MSM so she is going around them.

A show highlighting Alaska
She’s doing it very succesfully.
***SARAH PALIN bit her lip as KATE GOSSELIN melted down on their camping trip after the Plus 8 mom was handed a bucket with a toilet seat on top.***
Da-n! what a whiner! A bucket with a toilet seat on top would be a luxury in my camping places!
Toilet seats with or without the bucket are vailable at Cabellas.
ha ha ha- Kate was never a Girl Scout!
Hope the camera captured her face when she saw the latrine.
Or maybe they pointed her toward a bush!
Seriously, I feel sorry for Gosselin’s meal ticket kids. She is obviously unstable to so disrespect the Palins (who were giving her TV show a huge boost) and be such a poor sport about roughing it for one night on a camping trip..
Well, I *suppose* such a thing could be created, get a blubber powered electric generator out there and hook it up to a Toto bidet. Sitting on the bucket. But that wouldn’t really be roughing it.
When our boys were growing up we rarely missed a weekend camping, fishing, jeeping in the mountains or at Pismo or on the desert. When you’re out on a jeep trail, there are no potties. Not even a bucket. You did your business behind a rock or tree or even just behind the jeep if need be. Thank God Sheila was a trooper.
I was thinking the same thing.
I suspect Palin was lending her star quality to Kate’s show- not vice versa.
Bad judgement is becoming a Palin family trait.
Really? Now, other than the silly teenage girl, please give us details of this family trait.
Perhaps Kate expected indoor plumbing??? Perhaps Kate expected a comfortable clean ladies room, such as the ones in fancy hotels????
I guess Kate isn’t ready for primitive camping.
Camping with Kate Gosselin is not a very good idea.
Give them a E tool and a chunk of newspaper!
Camping with Kate. Stupid idea.
You don’t actually believe that it was good judgement to do a reality show with a sleazy reality “star” like Gosselin do you? I know some people would defend her if she was caught on tape kicking a puppy but still. Sarah is trying to bank as much as possible while she is still at the forefront of national politics but she really risks looking like a gold digger instead of a serious political leader and visionary. Things like this only risk making it even harder for her to woo independent voters. RWR was brilliant at winning over Dems and Independents. Sarah hasn’t shown herself to be capable of gaining the allegence of a broad swath of the electorate. This kind of childish stunt doesn’t help.
Same here Jim. It wasn’t every weekend for us, but often enough. I still enjoy a good night under the stars. When in nature, do what the other animals do. I do think it’s a good idea to dig a hole, do your business, and cover it up when you’re ready to return home.
