Kate Gosselin Glad Hairstylist Is Back In Business Post-Hurricane

Kate Gosselin told The Huffington Post that she didn't care about what her “haters” thought about her, which is fortunate because once again Kate finds herself in the middle of controversy, following her reaction to news that her hairdresser had regained power after Hurricane Sandy.

“BACK IN BUSINESS!!!!!!” tweeted Jason Backe, the partner of the reality star’s hairdresser, Ted Gibson, along with a picture of his salon lit up.

“HALLELUJAH! So happy!” responded an enthused Kate.

Gibson, who boasts on his website that he is “perhaps most known for toiling over the tresses of top celebrities, including Anne Hathaway, Debra Messing, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Greene, Joy Bryant, Zoe Saldana, Emma Watson, Gabrielle Union and many more,” might actually be most famous for Kate’s first major hair makeover in 2010, which took a reported 20 hours and would have cost $7,000 had the reality star not received it complimentary.

“Like many women, her hair and her hairdresser mean a great deal to her,” a friend of Kate’s tells me. “Kate spends a great deal of time and effort making sure she looks great -- that’s not a bad thing. What lady isn’t worried about her hair on a rainy, windy day? She was happy that her friend's business was up and running again. She can’t say anything without upsetting someone. It's crazy.”

However, even Kate’s loyal friend had trouble explaining the mom of eight's tweets about Sandy under the hashtag #SuperfunSandy! Ouch.

A request to Gosselin for comment has not been answered.
