Is That Really Kate Gosselin?

This wisdom goes back to the Bible: The power is in the hair. Poor Samson did not have weave technology to rescue him from doom and destruction, but Kate Gosselin does. She held out so much longer than Susan Boyle for her makeover , but finally she has come around and gotten rid of that hair that was only good for superlatives and creative metaphors (“bizarrely unattractive soccer-mom hair helmet,” “lawnmower-sliced,” “half-shaved poodle,” etc.). She may still be a monster but she actually looks human and, dare I say, pretty.
