    Against the idea. How many shows does it take to support a family? Not two. The children should be left out of the limelight.



  2. 2

    This is child abuse. Who is speaking up for the children… beside Kate's estranged brother? Seriously, he seems to be the only one that gives a shit about the kids and not looking for fame or money. Maybe he should get custody of them!



  3. 3

    Wtg Kate pimp your children out more, stupid bitch.



  4. 4

    Would love to see the kids again. They were pretty cute and I enjoyed watching them. Time will tell if they are still as enjoyable now that they've grown up a little bit. I can only imagine Maddy as a "tween"! Yikes.



  5. 5

    well i'll be watching lol



  6. 6

    Here we go again! Someone had better be keeping a reeeeaaaally good eye on those poor kids. Once she realizes that no one gives two shits about her anymore, the ratings for her shows tank, and she gets kicked to the curb by her last supporter (I'm aiming the gun at you TLC), she'll go nuts. I would not put it past her in the least to injure (or worse) one or more of her kids to get her more headlines. They are nothing but tools to further her "career" to her, period. Don't think she won't sacrifice them to achieve her own ends.



  7. 7

    I LOVE THOSE KIDS! Alexis is hilarious… I'm just glad they're getting work. If i were 8 with my own reality show and all my deadbeat dad could do was rich women to get their money, i'd rub it in his face… :)



  8. 8

    Those poor children.



  9. 9

    I love it. I hope Kate and the kids make a butt load of money.



  10. 10

    Why doesn't Kate go back to nursing? It's a good paying job and she can contribute to society in a positive way.

  11. lmlol says – reply to this

    CHILD ABUSE. Child protective services should step in and stop it. Isn't that bitch making enough money herself. A parent is supposed to support and protect their children, not pimp them. It must be hard enough to be in a brood of eight. They're going to be basket cases when they grow up.



  12. 12

    WHY?????????????????????????????????????????????? ugh!



  13. 13

    I don't know why America is so enamored with this family? Honestly, who cares anymore? Kate got a taste of the limelight and now she just wants to prolong it as long as possible when shes only famous for being a bitch.



  14. 14

    Totally for it!! When these kids end up in therapy, they can just pop in a dvd instead of trying to remember the exact moment where their parents failed them!



  15. 15

    I'm all for it. I'd love to see that older girl who is halfway to psychotic already get there faster. I think getting to see all eight of these halfbreed children ruined just the way mommy wants it would be one of the highlights of the entire Gosselin TV run. Those kids are a bunch of mommy neglected brats anyhow. Bring it.



  16. 16

    They were approved by the state to let the kids be on this new show…so why should social services be called? Not trying to be a smart a$$ but seriously interested in why people say that?

    I've said this before… she can't work at a regular job. Besides all the nuts there are in this world that stalk celebrities and wanna-be celebs, she would be constantly hounded by the paparazzi if she went back to work at a hospital. What hospital would hire her knowing that would happen?



  17. 17

    Such a fame whore! I'd rather see douche Jon than his BIG MOUTH ex-wife. Plus she totally made a fool outa herself on DWTS.



  18. 18

    I understand she needs the money to fund her kids but seriously, I know several people with 6, 8 and yes more than 8 that support their families just fine. It's called getting a job, saving and not having everything you or they want. Just because you can't get the latest and greatest things doesn't mean you still can't be a good mom on a nurses salary or any other job for that matter. There are ways of getting through. It might suck, they may not be able to have a huge house and other things but, really all those kids need is love. I get growing up without sucks but a lot of kids grow up without because their parents can't afford but you learn to appreciate things in life more. At least they may know not to whore themselves out too television when they turn 21, unfortunately I don't think it's the case, either they'll run away from the media or be forced into it somehow. Kate is insane, she needs to see the reality of the situation and stop forcing her kids into….what 2 shows now? These kids, I hate to say, are gonna be fudged up, have we not seen the repercussions of throwing your kid into the limelight to early? Exploitation sucks.



  19. 19

    Why is it anyones bussiness what she does?why don't we all worry about our own lifes!!!leave them alone for god sake….



  20. 20

    This bitch needs to get a real job, and leave her kids out of it.

    Shes in my nominated "Top 10 worst celebrity parents".



  21. 21

    I THINK I'M THE ONLY PERSON WHO THINKS KATE SERIOUSLY HAS A HATING ON ASIAN MEN AND TAKES IT OUT ON HER KIDS WHO ENDED UP NOT LOOKING WHITE



  22. 22

    It will be interesting to see what kind of drama TLC inserts into this new show, which doesn't include Jon Gosselin. Without fake drama, reality TV shows just don't work. Maybe they'll have Kate taking issue with the pool boy, gardener, nannies, the kids' teachers, etc.?



  23. 23

    I love that photo of her, she looks great! Wonder where she bought the sweater.



  24. 24

    who cares. it's not your business or ours. if you want to watch, watch. if not, mind your own business. nobody cares



  25. 25

    She is no better than Octomom, using her children to create fame for herself. Disgusting!



  26. 26

    Re: PatriciaB – My guess is she didn't buy the sweater. She is a commodity, she is probably one of the most photographed people around right now and everyone wants Kate in their stuff for the publicity. Kate turns nothing down. She got a million dollar home given to her. I'd trade the free sweater for the free TLC home.



  27. 27

    oh, how luckly for the kids - they'll get 1.8% each of the earnings. PA labor laws require 15% is put in trust for kids - but that's total, so they ge 1.8%.
    -
    -
    Don't watch the show.



  28. 28

    im for it. the kids miss the cameras.
    but now theyre older and not as cute so america wont care as much anymore.



  29. 29

    I know she needs to support those kids and put money away for college so I am going to support them. We all know Jon isn't any help money wise. I just hope there is close monitoring by CPS for those kids to make sure they are growing up "normally". I don't know what else she can do to support those kids. I doubt she can make it on a nurses salary. I would rather see her get her money from the entertainment industry rather than our taxes in the welfare system.



  30. 30

    Against … but I don't know that I could myself from watching the train wreck.



  31. 31

    It is a a group of specials, NOT full time. They missed the crew & their outings provided by TLC. If you watch the other new show, raising sextuplets and they do not have twins too, you will see what a great mom Kate is. The other show's kids run wild and the parents are so unorganized. I just hope Jon does not worm his sorry ass back on the show. I do NOT want to watch Jon Gosselin on any show. I will watch Kate's shows.



  32. 32

    Nobody gives a shit!! both show's are going to TANK enough already go away



  33. 33

    Shame on you TLC, shame. Khate is an out of control monster — you didn't have to be. Shame on TLC.



  34. 34

    The fact that she argued FOR TLC and AGAINST her kids getting any money for doing the show, shows that this woman isn't a mother.



  35. 35

    If the kids are not traveling with her (I'm guessing they won't be - Kate couldn't stand that), they'll be home with their Mommy-nannies.



  36. 36

    ugh i remember getting this on my phone :(
    i guess now she got those child labor permits

    i'm sure she convinced them enough in how there's no other way she can take care of her kids.



  37. 37

    Umm, again, Perez is reporting it in a way to make it look like the kids are going back to filming a weekly show. First off, the old show was fine. Kids were not being abused. They were living life like normal only with a camera around for 3 to 4 days of the week, so they were not abused. Thats what the state found, and they have a trust account with funds above the normal percentage. Next, this chow, Kat Plus 8, will be a series of specials. What that means is, it will not be a weekly show. Maybe one or two 1 hours specials a year. I think the Jolie/Pitt children ar pictured, filmed by the paparazzi when they take the brood out than Kate and her kids. The truth is, those of you who say the kids re damaged, hurt, abused or you hate Kate for filming and being famous, are peole who are actually damaged, disturbed or hurt by their own childhood so you project on others trying to make your misery or hatred theirs. None of you know the kids mental, physical being. You assume because of your hatred for Kate. you are more dangerous and damaging to the kids than Kate, because when old enough, they will be hurt when they read your hateful rant online.



  38. 38

    I actually really miss Jon and Kate plus 8.
    I'll porbably watch. Although it really isn't good for the children always being in teh spotlight.



  39. 39

    I guess this cun*t will now be a shrew to her children since Jon is gone.



  40. 40

    against it. i want them to GO THE FUCK AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  41. 41

    Re: Rican31 – you're so fucking delusional and up Kate's ass all the time. I thought you said you were gay but you have a raging hardon for her I can tell. Her kids are fucked up from the get go. You should go to PA and maybe get a job as a nanny so you can stay hard for Kate the day and a half out of the month shes home. She probably doesn't like latinos either so you're out of luck.



  42. 42

    Social services…where are u? The doctor that put eight embryos into her should have his license taken away. The less kids you have, the less problems. You know atleast one of the kids are going to have some serious psych problems!!!



  43. 43

    Re: -Shootingstar- – LMAO.. Contibute to society in a positive way?? How is she not contributing in a positive way? Maybe its you and others who view her in a negative way.. She could be filmed saving someones life and you guys would say she only did it for the fame.. See, folks like you and others on here who hate this woman so much, are much worse than how you guys view Kate. You hate her for being famous so you paint her as this evil being who abuses her kids. You guys are the mobs that go after someone with fire and a pitchfork. Man, you guys are ugly as sin..



  44. 44

    Re: Come0nImpressme – again, how are the kids not being loved. Where did yu create this? How did you get that they were not being loved after watching her do a few cha chas and a paso doble?? What a dumb, ugly thing to say. Adn she would do more harm to them being a nurse than doing gigs that keep her home more, make her more money in a few months or weeks than a regular job in a year. If you knew anything about nursing, which you obviouslly dont, nurses can work up to 12 to 13 hours per day, sometimes longer. And if you want to hate pn anyone for being a fame whore, hate the PAPS and hate Perez for always taking pics and posting stupid, hate filled postings daily. They are the reason she is in your face..



  45. 45

    Get off her back she has 8 college funds to pay for and you know their douchebag father won't be paying for it. I watched them way before all they drama started and those kids are normal. People act like there are cameras 24/7. That was not ever how the show was filmed. They would be there for a week or so at a time then come back after a few months, to get all seasons etc. These kids are more protected probably than child actors, why don't people worry about them.



  46. 46

    Her head has gotten too big!



  47. 47

    I'm against seeing ANY of them EVER again on TV. DISAPPEAR ALREADY.



  48. 48

    I'm against anything that has to do with this media whore pimping out her children. What a friggin' bitch.



  49. 49

    Re: Rican31 – I just don't think they really need the money anymore . .
    •The Gosselins make 75,000 dollars per episode. So that figures between three million and four million per season. [it figures that much because they usually have between 20 and 34 episodes per season]
    -
    book signings, interviews, money from the selling of their books, appearances and speaking, and all the Freebies: free clothing, free trips and vacations, free vet bills, free doctor visits, free surgeries i.e. Kate's tummy tuck and Jon's hair transplant, free hair cuts, the dogs were free, free supplies for the dogs, free furniture and carpet. The list just goes on and on.
    -
    Taking the lowest possible figure less freebies - (TV Show only) — or $75,000 for (average) 28 episodes per year — that is $2,100,000 per year. (and in truth, its much higher than that).
    -
    The average person in PA early $52K a year — meaning, the average person has to work 40 years to equal the Gosselin's year.
    -
    Please, she has MORE than enough money to stay home. . . .
    but when you figure the average salary in PA is $52,000 - thus, it would take the average person in their state 53 years to earn what the Gosselin's have already.
    -
    If



  50. 50

    I think I am over Kate and the kids. Let's move on.



  51. 51

    AGAINST!!! I didn't watch their first series, I didn't watch her on DWTS (until she got booted out, hahahahaha, but turned it off before she started playing victim), and I will absolutely refuse to watch her pimping out her brood on another show. It's ridiculous and the Gosselin family needs to learn how to pay for shiz by getting real jobs…NOT on TV…like the rest of the world. Lots of people have large families, they do not pimp them out on TV for huge money. It's disgusting and it shouldn't be allowed. Someone needs to nip this new trend in the bud…ASAP!!



  52. 52

    Re: ohfortheloveofbob – #45 No, sorry Bob. She doesn't have to pay for her kids to go to college. Our very generous governor in the state of Pennsylvania so kindly took some of my tax dollars so all eight of Kate's spawn were guaranteed a college education paid for by the state. Real nice of him wasn't it? I wonder if he's do the same for mine. Oh gee, I guess not because I didn't have any more than I could afford. So Kate gets yet another freebie, but her eight spawn get this freebie on my back, and I'm not happy about it.



  53. 53

    Re: crabbygirl81 – Uh hello - she could work privately if she really wanted to. With her out of the limelight the paps would lose interest quickly. One year down the road she'd be able to work wherever she wanted to. But Kate WANTS the attention, that's what most of us are so upset about. She's not doing it FOR the children, she's doing it for herself. It's obvious and it's insulting. She should be protecting her kids from paps & celebrity stalkers, not inviting them into her home through the TV on a weekly basis. Get a clue.



  54. 54

    No this is terrible to use your kids like that, what a joke, she had fertility treatments to have those kids so she could get a tv show, she always had nannies to help even one just for laundry, she has no talent, can't sing, can't dance, can't act.. she's a joke and I have lost all respect for her for using her children to make $$ I will not watch her abuse her kids.



  55. 55

    I'd rather OctoMom have a show than they continue televising the downward spiral of her children



  56. 56

    Re: Lulu-2 – Ignore last paragraph - I decided to go with the lowest figure possible, not the 3 million some report (I used on the TV show, not books, speaking engagements and donations - she passes the collection basket at churches where she speaks asking for "love donations" to feed her children - BLECH)



  57. 57

    Re: PENNSYLVANIA GIRL – What PENNSYLVANIA GIRL says is true.

  58. ELUC says – reply to this


    58

    Why not? They get paid LOTS! They live in a home I wish my kids lived in. They will get the kind of opportunities my boys will not. Not like we have to watch!



  59. 59

    FUCK IT, KATE SEEMS LIKE THE ONLY ONE WORRIED ABOUT FEEDING HER KIDS, GOTTA HAND IT TO HER FOR NOT GIVING UP LIKE SMALL-DICK JON!! ITS FUCKING BETTER THAN HER TAKING GOVERNMENT TAX-PAYER MONEY TO MAINTAIN HER 8 KIDS, LEARN FROM KATE BITCHES!!!



  60. 60

    over it



  61. 61

    your negative opinions mean nothing. if you do not want to watch pick up the remote and turn the channel. if you have no remote throw a brick at the TV. she will continue to make $$. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! now hug a root!



  62. 62

    those poor lil circus animals….stinkin' kate that bitch needs to get a real job…but I guess at least she's hustling for her kids.. opposed to that ugly, bloated corpse daddy they have…ew that guy is so busted!….and wtf is Twist of Kate?!?!??!?!?!?!!? That sounds stupid unless she's gonna be twisting around a stripper pole I don't care to watch it.



  63. 63

    Odd little tidbit — Kate Gosselin's Mother was only 17 when she had Kate — and Kate is the 2nd of 5.
    -
    No slam on Kate's mom whatsoever, but sounds like she was pretty young when she married and started having kids.



  64. 64

    The kids are great!!!!d Can we plz leave Kate off the show????



  65. 65

    Re: Sir-Bangs-Alot – Just letting you know that while Kate has made MILLIONS, the State of PA will be paying for their college funds via donations. No harm, no foul - if folks are silly enough to give money to greedy Kate.



  66. 66

    I'm not sure folks realize how very, very close the sound boom needs to be to the kids when recording - CLOSE. There is nothing natural about it whatsoever. Also, must feel nice to have a camera close-in on you when you are 5 and sobbing.



  67. 67

    Ugh, one more -
    -
    Here is Kate travel schedule for promo re her latest book:-
    -
    Georgia 4/24 - 4/25
    Florida 4/26 - 4/27
    Virginia 4/28 - 4/29
    PA/NY/NJ 5/2 - 5/7
    Michigan 5/13 - 5/14
    -
    who here still thinks she's home much??? (BTW, the PA sites are not near her home.)



  68. 68

    someone needs to ax this bitch! I am SO SICK OF KATE JON AND THEM 8 KIDS!!!



  69. 69

    Re: PENNSYLVANIA GIRL – No sorry Pennsylvania girl, what if the kids don't want to go to school in PA? What if one of them dreams of going to Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, wherever? Parents do the best they can for their children, to give their children the life they want, and to help their children fulfill their dreams. I sure wouldn't want to be the one to keep them tied to Pennsylvania when they dreamed of going elsewhere. Any parent with 8 children and Kate's position would do the same. You should probably just stop talking



  70. 70

    I don't understand some of the people on here - do you not realize almost every celebrity mom you guys drool on over here has to leave their children for days, weeks, months at a time to go get another 20 million dollar paycheck? Certainly overkill, no one needs that much money and Kate makes no where near that. BUT they do it anyway. And they are saints and role models! Yet Kate has been left as a single mom with a deadbeat dad who has no skills or monetary contribution he's capable of making and Kate is a MONSTER for going to work. You people honestly make me sick hahah



  71. 71

    I'm FOR it. The kids aren't having to actually work, they are only being filmed doing every day things. I think Kate should get with Supernanny, lol.



  72. 72

    The kids are cute, but I can't stand Kate Gosselin. She famewhores in any way/shape possible. She is clearly desperate for attention, fame, and money. What she really needs is to be home with her neglected children and raise them properly before they turn out to be like her.



  73. 73

    From Philadelphia Magazine, Feb. 2009:
    -
    "None of this comes as a surprise to David Rothermel . . . he was Jon’s former boss (and a friend of Jon’s parents) during Kate’s second pregnancy. He’s the guy singled out during Jon and Kate’s speaking engagements as the man who “did not want to insure [Jon] … they let him go.”
    -
    "However, Rothermel says — and supporting documents prove — that Jon Gosselin was fired for other reasons. The state unemployment office ruled that Jon improperly did a side job on company time."
    -
    "Furthermore, Rothermel claims that BEFORE the babies were EVEN born, Jon was on the phone and the Internet soliciting freebies, BOASTING OPENLY THAT HE WAS NEVER GOING TO HAVE TO WORK AGAIN."
    -
    "Indeed, the Gosselin family website, Sixgosselins.com, was registered before the babies were born, and later featured a “Prayer List” of wants — a 15-­passenger van, “a house that we fit into and can afford … it’s going to literally take a miracle”
    -
    "When the babies were six months old, family members, friends and neighbors got a letter containing the Gosselins’ account number with the electric company, in case anyone felt moved to pay the couple’s bill."



  74. 74

    Jon is a better Dad than Kate is as a mom. She already has made enough $ to pay for their college educations… so why be greedy?? I remember when Jon wanted to end the show and Kate was against it… she knew what she was doing when she went in for invitro, they didnt have to put so many eggs in….what Kate wants Kate gets and no one stands in the way not even the kids. She used to be wholesome and hands on, no make-up or fancy clothes or spray tans. She used to put bible scriptures around the house…now she's not even in the house. Boy is it gonna come back and bite her in her uptight a$$



  75. 75

    Re: Puff It – Okay. I was in NYC working on a lawsuit. Took the morning off to be the basic yahoo standing in line at the Today Show with a sign saying "Hi Mom !"
    -
    I got pulled out of line and asked to be in a commercial for the show. Cool. Except I SUCKED.
    -
    That sound boom was about a foot above my right shoulder. Its entirely unnerving. You see it on TV, and just beyond the edge of the screen is an entire crew.
    -
    Nothing "normal" about it. And I was replaced in the commercial by a real part-time actor.

  76. @v@ says – reply to this


    76

    Re: LetttyB – Well, that's pretty random and exactly opposite of the fact that she made eight kids with him. I think her reasons may have something to do with his lack of initiative or family leadership, and, oh, his walking out and then trying to block her income, but the racist angle? Come ON. She married him.



  77. 77

    WHAT THE FUCK? two more shows??? no one gives a SHIT about this woman or her kids. her kids weren't even that cute.



  78. 78

    Yippee…they are so cute and great chance to earn money. College is not cheap. Whiners are only jealous. Team Kate!

  79. JCPR says – reply to this


    79

    i think is a good idea! the kids love the crew and they get to go fun places so they can film the show! so go for it! and plus kate is making money this way and she's with the kids and not far away from them! its better than dancing with the stars



  80. 80

    oh for christ sake isnt she done whorring out her kids already.



  81. 81

    As long as douche bag Jon doesn't profit… go for it. Kinda shocked he's allowing it without him



  82. 82

    OOOh for fuck sakes…give me a brake everyone!! Child slavery?? really?? I use to watch the show and I just loved it. I will watch again and will not feel bad about it. And to everyone against the idea…DON'T WATCH…PERIOD!!



  83. 83

    Yea - can't wait to see Kate and kids! Go Kate!



  84. 84

    OMG, does this woman really think she has talent, no, but its an easy way to get whatever she wants paid for by the television show.
    I really cannot believe that many people want to see her raise those kids.
    What are the reality people going to do when there is no more reality shows I hope they do not think they have talent…Well maybe a few of them do, but she does not. Kate you had those kids now figure out how to raise them without a production company following you around…



  85. 85

    Kate has been spoiled having so much attention. So have the kids. Having more of the same is just a natural thing. At least they all get to visit unique places and do interesting things for TV.



  86. 86

    That's great and all… I'm still sticking to my fav show, The Hills and The City (that's that show with Whitney Port, for all you people that didnt know that.).



  87. 87

    I can't wait for it! the kids seem to love it and they get to travel and have all these awesome experiences! I'm glad KatePlus8 is a go!



  88. 88

    Is beyond me - with all that is known about this MONSTER of "mother" can possibly support her.
    -
    She's a nightmare - but then, we'll get to hear all about that when her kids grow up.



  89. 89

    Kate is a fame whore - Not many people want to see her they want to see the kids. They are so cute and it is too funny to see someone else's kids acting up. If Kate is so worried about her kids, she needs to be home to take care of them and not leave them with a nanny so much. Love those kids and be there for them — Don't keep thinking about yourself Kate — Stay home and take care of your kids instead of leaving them in someone else's care.
