Hold Me Closer, Reverse Mullet


I try to keep things on the non-snarky side around here, but OH MY GOD when I read this quote from Kate Gosselin in Entertainment Weekly, I died. Dead.

Everybody wants it. It’s work. I have very, very thick hair, so it’s not going to work for everybody. I’ve seen people come through the book line with thin hair and it’s just won’t work. My hair stylist gets calls from all across the country.

Everybody wants it? EVERYBODY WANTS IT? No no no, I do not want it. YOU SHOULD NOT WANT IT.

People, I urge you. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS HAIRCUT. To put it simply, it makes the baby jesus cry, kills kittens, you know the drill.

US Weekly has the best photo gallery ever of what celebrities would look like with Gosselin’s hair. It pretty much made my day.

Feel like you can withstand more of the reverse mullet? Check out more photos here.

    This post is a PSA that should be running on TV. And in magazines.

    You’re saving the world, my friend.

    That would be the last haircut on earth I would EVER want.

    I have chin length ringlet hair. Please no GOD, I do not want that hair cut.

    i tasted vomit in my mouth when i heard make that statement in an interview on tv…oh wait, i was laid up in the hospital with bacterial meningitis. maybe that’s why i had that taste in my mouth. nevertheless i never liked that haircut of hers and couldn’t begin to imagine the practicality of such a thing with a houseful of kids.

    I totally agree. I don’t watch the show but everytime I see her I wonder why someone doesn’t tell her she looks like a crazed rooster? I can’t imagaine anyone taking that photo to a stylist and saying “I want to look like that – business in the back and party in the front.”

    I think this is my favorite blog post of all time, of any blog I’ve ever read. I can’t wait for Reverse Mullet Barbie. Or the Kate Gosselin Barbie with Fancy Reverse Mullet that comes with a tiny jar of pomade and a gigantic conversion van.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, what on earth is a woman with 8 kids doing with a haircut that she herself admits “takes work”?! Nannies much, Kate? Also, fire that hairstylist cuz not only did she wrong you she’s lying about all the calls she’s getting. No one in their right mind would want to look like a four year old styled a wig for you and put it on backwards.

    It looks like crap on everyone, except Angelina. Angelina looks hot no matter what.

    It would look nice on her if she would grow out that peacock look in the back. A nice bob.

    A haircut that can make any beautiful woman look instantly fugly? It’s like (fugly) magic!

    This makes that Jennifer Aniston travesty from the mid-90s look like a stylish and desirable cut.

    Her stylist should be fired for not refusing to do that hair cut.

    It’s such a terrible, terrible haircut! No one should have it. We should work on it becoming illegal.
