In my thorough literature research of Kate via US Weekly and OK! Magazine, it seems the magazines always point out the fact that she grew up in a trailer park. I am a bit sensitive to the magazine's citation of Kate's trailer park upbringing as if it explains why she's such fame seeking money monger.
Truth is, I actually lived in a trailer park in Dodge City, Kansas, for a year while growing up. It is a fact that even my husband didn't know. My family and I arrived in the US when I was eight without anything and we moved around quite a bit as my guardians couldn't find employment easily without knowing much English. We lived in the trailer park for a year before we got "the hell out of Dodge" and moved back to Dallas, Texas, where I spent my pre-teen years.
Like, Kate, I too had a mullet; albeit mine was when I was ten and Kate still has hers, even if it is a reverse mullet. I was tempted to post a picture of my mullet haircut, but fear that I would lose all crediblity. Really, next time you see my name in a post, you'll be thinking, "Oh, it's the girl with the Neck Beard/The Tennessee Top Hat/ The Kentucky Waterfall/ and The Camaro Crash Helmet [insert any sort of nicknames you may have]."
Kate is no class-act, but no matter how much "success" we achieve, can Kate and I ever be free from the trailer trash stigma? You can take the girl out of trailer park, but can you really take the trailer park out of the girl?! I would like to think so, but maybe I'm naive?!
