It's a June Airdate for 'Kate Plus 8' : IVillage.comIf you weren't invited to the Gosselin sextuplets' sixth birthday party earlier this week, don't worry: you can catch up with all eight of Kate Gosselin's cute kids on June 6, when Kate Plus 8 premieres on TLC. The Jon-free series will begin with a birthday episode (the children go on "an exciting surprise trip" with Mom to celebrate the sextuplets' birthday). Here are three things you should know about K+8:
1. It's not a traditional TV series. TLC has referred to the show as a "series of specials", meaning the cameras won't be following the family 24/7 anymore, as in Jon & Kate Plus 8 days. The show will most likely focus on special events in the kids' lives: birthdays, holidays, dentist appointments...
2. The kids have become performers. Legally, that is! After a challenge from Pennsylvania's State Labor Dept., the Gosselin 8 are required to have work permits, in accordance with standard policy for any other child actor.
3. Jon will not be watching. (Or so he's claimed!) Last fall, the Gosselin patriarch spoke out against Kate Plus 8 on Larry King Live, saying, "I don't think it's healthy for [my children] because we're going through a divorce right now. I don't think it should be televised and I think my kids should be taken off the show." Then again, he may just be bitter: rumor has it that Gosselin simply got edged out of his ex-wife's new show (and lucrative TLC contract), and has since been shopping his own reality series. Kate Plus 8 kicks off on Sunday, June 6 (9 p.m. ET) on TLC. Meanwhile, Kate Gosselin's other new reality series, Twist of Kate, will be premiering later this summer.
Jon Gosselin -- Will Bartend for Food: TMZ.com
TMZ has learned Gosselin served as a "celebrity" bartender at the Ott House Pub in the town of Emmitsburg. But get this -- Gosselin didn't take in a single dime last night because the whole thing was a charity event and every cent Jon made in tips went straight to a local food bank. Despite the good deed, we hear he pours a mean Piña Coladouche.
Kate Gosselin Continues Sextuplet Birthday Celebrations: Celebrity-Gossip.net
RadarOnline: It’s raining in Reading, PA, so that means the Gosselin kids are splashing around in the rain! Momma Kate’s hair survived the rain mist and 46 degree temperatures. She was joined by her bodyguard pal Steve Neild. The sextuplets wore matching white hoodies, perhaps a birthday gift from Monday when the children turned six. And the best gift of all was being able to spend the day with both parents. They had a special breakfast with Kate. And, in the afternoon, they went to papa Jon’s new apartment. And, the couple was briefly re-united for the sake of the kids.
