I also wanted to add that I set up a place for discuss the new episode tonight. A few people were wondering who was taking care of the kids when both Jon & Kate were away at the same time..And for that reason, why Jon felt the need to be away while Kate was working? Well I can't answer the second one, but thankfullythe best of sitters Carla and her sweet daughter were taking care of the kids, so they were in good hands. I put one of the photos below, but you can see more at my favorite Gosselin photo site SO SUGARY, who now have a permanent place on the right side of my blog. So glad you are happy & excited to be included!

Kate Tapes TV Pilot, Gets "Thumbs Up": Radar.com
Kate Gosselin taped the pilot for her new TV show Sunday and got thumbs-up reviews from everyone in the studio and her bosses.The show, based on the Web site Mom Logic, was taped in New York City at the Chelsea studios.
Southern cooking expert Paula Deen, Rene Syler and Lee Woodruff have significant roles on the show, which does not feature Kate as the star, but integrates her into the ensemble. Show executives scrambled at the last minute and changed their mind on guests for the pilot. They had originally decided on Mel B and Christie Brinkley but scheduling problems and differences of opinion led to a change of plans during the last few days. That type of upheaval is commonplace with TV pilots, a person connected to the show. And one source familiar with the taping told RadarOnline.com: “It went extremely well. Everyone there loved it. And Kate did great. There’s no question that she was a hit.”
TV mom, superstar Kate Gosselin draws big crowd: WMBF News.com
Sept, 17th, 2009 CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Hundreds people who attended the Southern Women's Show in Charlotte crowded around a stage Thursday afternoon to hear TV's most popular and, sometimes, controversial mother of eight speak.
Kate Gosselin who is the driving force behind the TLC reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" spoke to a crowd consisting mostly of women and young girls at the Fashion and Entertainment Stage.
Gosselin, dressed in a snazzy gold and black outfit and sporting her familiar cropped, bleached blonde hairdo, sat during the entire presentation. Many people in the crowd snapped pictures of Gosselin as she talked about her life and work with the popular cable TV show. Gosselin is the mother of twins and sextuplets. She and her husband rose to sudden fame in recent years after they went public on TV sharing the rewards and challenges of raising eight small children.
She has been a prominent fixture on talk shows and tabloids after news broke earlier this year concerning her husband's desire to end their marriage and his alleged relationship with another woman. One person in the audience asked Gosselin about her favorite experience while working on the show. She said it was probably the time the entire family went Christmas caroling or the trip last year to Hawaii, where she and Jon renewed their wedding vows. Gosselin said some people thought the whole thing was made up, but she said was a very real and special time in the couple's life. Gosselin said she normally picks the activities in which the children will do or where they will go prior to filming segments for the TV show. "I come up with the ideas that I think the kids will like, and they like it," Gosselin said. Right now, she said her 5-year-old sextuplets have discovered the joy of no-bake cookies.
