Jon & Kate Gosselin Both At Pennsylvania Home Sunday: Radar.com
It was almost like the good old days of Jon & Kate Plus 8 -- almost. Jon and Kate Gosselin were both photographed Sunday at the Wernersville, Pennsylvania home they once shared. The reality TV mom, fresh off her stint on ABC's Dancing with the Stars, was snapped at a local supermarket stocking up on groceries before heading home. Jon, in the meantime, was at the house and seen playing with the kids and corralling their toys out of the garage. The two were not snapped together at any point throughout the day. Regarding the current custody controversy between the two, Jon Tweeted last week that he had fired his attorney Anthony List and that "Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably."
Kate Gosselin Dances Off In Week Five. Will the Show Be The Same? USAPlayers.com
Week 5 of Dancing With The Stars brought some disappointing news for reality TV mom Kate Gosselin, as she and partner Tony were the next to be voted off DWTS. Tony and Kate certainly had some bright moments in the spotlight, but ultimately not entertaining enough to keep them there. For weeks now, Kate has been expected to be voted off the show at any given moment, but has lasted a lot longer than most viewers originally anticipated. Since the start of the season, Kate has shown much dedication in wanting to take her dancing skills or lack there of, to a new level, and while there was some improvement on her end, her partner Tony can take credit for making her performances bare able to watch.
Kate has been criticized for even accepting the invitation to be on the hit reality show Dancing With The Stars, saying that her time would be much better spent with her 8 small children. Seeing as how the divorce of Kate and Jon Gosselin has been made very public and there is little if any privacy among their personal matters, it is a well known fact that their financial situation has come into question many times, and that it very well may have been necessary for Kate to pick up this gig in order to care for her children financially. Who will be the next to go?
Gosselin kids get permits to work on mom's new show: CNN.Com
Kate Gosselin's eight children are cleared to work on their mom's newest reality TV show, "Kate Plus 8," according to a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry. "Each child is individually permitted, and they need to be renewed every six months," said spokesman Troy Thompson. Pennsylvania labor officials recently decided that while the Gosselins violated the state's child labor law by not getting work permits for the kids for their original show -- "Jon & Kate Plus 8" -- no charges would be filed as long as they had permits for future shows. An agreement signed by Kate Gosselin's talent agency with state labor officials said she must get work permits for the children for any future TV work. Otherwise, the state could reopen the case and file charges for past offenses, according to the state letter released earlier this month. The Gosselins and show producers have said the children -- 9-year-old twins and 5-year-old sextuplets -- did not need permits.
The state said their participation in the show was work. At least 15 percent of the money paid to the children must be put into an irrevocable trust account that can only be spent when the children turn 18, the state said. The state's Bureau of Labor Law Compliance concluded the kids were not mistreated during the taping of "Jon & Kate Plus 8." Although Jon and Kate Gosselin reached a child custody agreement last year when they divorced, he recently filed for a new court order. Jon Gosselin's filing contends that his ex-wife is placing her career efforts ahead of the children and that she is unfairly denying him time with them. She defended her busy show business schedule, which includes "Dancing with the Stars," her book tour and preparations for a new show on TLC. "I'm a working mom, I'm single and I have to provide for my kids," she said. "No pun intended, but the show must go on."
