Kate To Work As A Garbage Collector?? USWeekly.com
Kate Gosselin is getting down and dirty on her newest TLC show, Twist of Kate. "I look forward to being dropped into the lives of interesting and unique people and families," she writes on her blog. "I'll help where I can and learn a lot, too, I am quite sure. (Kate on the back of a trash truck, anyone ... amongst other beyond uncomfortable jobs?)" The reality mom, 35, laments that between taping that and Kate Plus 8, she forgot "what bored looks like." A new clip of Kate Plus 8 (the two-hour premiere airs Sunday on TLC; watch a sneak peek) shows Kate struggling to manage her kids without Jon on a family vacation to Discovery Cove in Orlando to celebrate the sextuplets' sixth birthday.
"So much was new and different about this situation," says Kate, who split from Jon last summer. (But while they were still wed, she took the kids on a getaway to Bald Head Island, N.C. while Jon stayed home to oversee a kitchen renovation at their $1.1 million Pennsylvania home.) Continues Kate, "It was nerve-wracking... I thought, 'Oh my gosh, they're totally going to have a melt down'.... I was thinking we were setting up for disaster." Still, she says her kids were excited to return to TV. "The kids were thrilled to be reunited with our beloved crew, and I am glad to have our 'family job' back," she writes. "It still makes me smile to be able to enjoy unique life experiences right alongside my eight favoritest people!"

The family also visits Discovery Cove, swims with dolphins, and gets involved in an orange juice squeezing contest. The second hour concentrates on Kate and her life in the past year, including her bitter divorce, her relationship with the paparazzi and her other activities. TLC is banking on Kate for two shows this summer. In addition to Kate Plus 8, the network is producing a 12-part series called Twist Of Kate, about viewers inspired by her life. Kate Plus 8 premieres Sunday at 9/8c on TLC; Twist Of Kate will premiere this summer.
