  1. The awful whiner leaving didn’t leave Andy with more chores- Kate never did anything other than whine. I’m glad she’s gone and hope she never returns. LBZ is a much better place without her.

  2. Andy was & is a tough character. She wasn’t a mind reader & like Otto of Alaska the Last Frontier & his wife Charlotte, who @ time seems all to interested in taking a skillet upside his head, marriage in that surrounding has to draining. If yer not prepared to get down n dirty up to your elbows & sometimes bend & sway more than you think is fair, while reminding the other 1/2 to bend & sway, more, as well yer marriage is doomed! Alaska is its own animal that can be tamed never conquered. You must become part of Alaska. P.S. Abuse? Being a hard ass with a drill instructors personality, aggressiveness can be, by some people, considered abusive. Steel yourself or quit. Andy’s wife quit. He’ll, they call the lower 48 America. Nuff said!

  3. Excuse me but all of you must be blind !! Kate was always trying to help her goofy husband no matter what he’d do to her !!
    Andy IS A CRUEL MAN with a ” Very Bad Temper “……. I’m very proud of Kate for not allowing Andy to continue running his mouth and treating her like ” Dirt ” !!!!!!!! I hope Kate finds a very nice man that appreciates a good woman when he sees one !! Good Luck Kate !!!! I miss you not being on the show. But I pray you have a better life !!!! Deedra Rice Of Ohio

    1. Agreed! I often commented to my boyfriend “I wouldn’t take that $h#T if I were her”. Just think if he treated her that badly in front of the camera & crew, how un”bear”able he was at home alone. Abuse (verbal or physical) of any person male or female should not be condoned because you are in Alaska. The state has nothing to do with it. He used her until she could take it no more….GOOD FOR YOU KATE

  4. Kate is well missed by all I’m sure. No one deserves to be abused. I wish her nothing but happiness! Proud to be one of her fans!

  5. I agree with Kate! I wouldn’t take the verbal or physical abuse from him. No matter how hard she tried he was still rude and a bully!!

    1. She didn’t run. She had enough of the abuse and said, NO MORE! If you see that as running then I would imagine you’re one of those cowards that beat women.

  6. after reading all the relevant information available Why do the cast portray that they have little or no money.
    It seems they all get a nice Pay Check from the show! apart from there other business activitys
    And as for all the Equipment they own, less of the Bullshit Guys! You all seem pretty well sorted
    with healthy Bank Accounts.
