Another Multiples Family Separates, Jon & Kate Gosselin Separation #2 Most Shocking TV Moment It can't be easy taking care of eight children while having to find time to maintain your enviable figure. But Kate Gosselin manages to make it look like a breeze. Yesterday, the mother-of eight went for a long jog near her home in Reading, Pennsylvania before picking up her children from school.  The strain begins to show for Gosselin on her run The 35-year-old reality show star showed off her washboard stomach and toned legs in a cropped grey vest top and grey shorts on her run.  At one point, the exercise seemed to be taking its toll, with Gosselin looking a little puffed out. However, she soon recovered to pick her kids up from their school later on in the afternoon. Covered up in a grey T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan Nobody Ever Regretted It, Gosselin shepherded her children into the car. It seems that Gosselin, who stars in her own reality show Kate Plus Eight, is very much getting back into her everyday routine after holiday in Mexico at the beginning of the month.
After Raising Sextuplets dad, Bryan Masche, was arrested last month, we knew there was a Jon and Kate Gosselin story just dying to come out. And now? Bryan and his wife, Jennifer Masche, have announced they're getting divorced. We can't wait to see what happens next. Call it the "we have multiple children and a reality show" syndrome. But it seems like all these families on TV just can't hold it together. Of course, it's been proven that parents of multiples have a higher divorce rate as is. And we're sure the publicity of being on a reality show doesn't help. We're guessing this is the end of Raising Sextuplets. We have a feeling we're going to start seeing Bryan Masche in the news a lot more, dating a lot and just generally being a mess. Maybe even best friends with Jon Gosselin. In the meantime, we think Jennifer Masche should sit down and have a little talk with Kate Gosselin. Perhaps Dancing with the Stars is in Jennifer Masche's future?

Welcome Fall, Goodbye To Attacks On Kate Gosselin's Body, Is Russia Looking for a New Kate? The new nastiness came in a blog which printed an unflattering photo of Kate Gosselin in a bikini. Publishing and commenting on the photo was fair play, since a recent People magazine had made such a big deal about Gosselin’s weight loss and toned body. But the blog declared, “Kate Gosselin in a Bikini is Terrifying.” The photo shows some wrinkled skin on her abdomen, which the blog declared a “scary old-lady stomach.” It added, “Age and motherhood are no excuse.”

To the contrary, I’d say that age and motherhood are quite wonderful and need no excuse.Whether you agree with that or not, plastic surgeon and blogger Dr. Tony Youn adds some helpful medical perspective:
Although Kate looks flat and tight when standing, it’s not surprising that her skin looks this way when sitting. Everyone has some skin that folds over when sitting down. We must, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to stand up straight. With Kate, however, that skin has been profoundly stretched out, so it’s not going to look as smooth as the skin of a person who has not had children.
A reader of the “In Your Face” page on Facebook comments: “The whole Kate Gosselin phenomenon is a very sad statement about our society….but it saddens me to hear such hate spewing criticism!”

Get ready for Russian versions of Kate Gosselin and 'Cake Boss':
Get ready for the Russian version of Kate Gosselin and "Cake Boss."Discovery Communications, parent of some of the biggest cable networks in the United States, including Discovery Channel and TLC, detailed plans to expand into Russia. Among the ventures the company is launching in Russia are a new version of TLC for the region. TLC has become one of the driving forces of Discovery in the U.S., with shows such as "Cake Boss" and personalities including Kate Gosselin, who rose to fame after the reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" took off. Later this year, it will launch a show featuring former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
Among the shows that will be on the Russian version of TLC is "Like Mother, Like Daughter," a makeover show that will be done by a Moscow-based production firm.But makeover shows won't be the only thing Discovery Communications will import. There will also be a bloc of commercial-free science education shows called "Crazy Break". Discovery already has seven channels operating in Russia, but the expansion is aimed at increasing local productions so the channels are more than just a rehash of what is shown in the U.S.

Is it Ok That Jon Gosselin Smokes in Front Of The Kids? Has Kate Plus 8 REALLY Been Removed From TV?

Photo: PhotoAgency Jon Gosselin spent the day by the pool with his children on Sunday but looked completely disinterested. He didn't show any affection towards his kids or play with them but spent the time texting on his phone and having cigarette breaks. His girlfriend Ellen Ross was also there and she lazed on a sun lounger while the kids amused themselves.
Jon's ex-wife Kate Gosselin started a war of words recently saying that their kids don't enjoy spending time with their father.Kate said: 'I basically wait for the phone call from how many of them wanting to come home'. She said Jon's residence 'is not their home and it doesn't feel like home to them'. The pair have had one of the most acrimonious break up in celebrity history and although they've been divorced for nearly a year the bitterness between them still ensues.
Jon refused to take the bait. He responded on Twitter: 'As much as I want to respond to numerous LIES recently claimed on Regis and Kelly, I will refrain'. The father of eight added: 'I am 'rising above' and refuse to engage in any sort of public argument that could potentially harm or upset my children'. It had recently been reported that Kate's spin off show Kate Plus 8 has been cancelled due to Jon not signing off on his kids being on air for another series. But TLC have said the rumour is 'not true' and that Kate will continue on with her eight kids for now.

Kate Gosselin: is 'Kate Plus 8' returning to online schedule for TLC?:
  • Kate Gosselin, the former star of Jon and Kate Plus 8, and current star of Kate Plus 8 is involved in yet another story that has been reported on by the media. Some have noticed that the show Kate Plus 8 has disappeared from the TLC TV lineup schedule.
According to a report, the show cannot be seen on the online TV schedule for the network channel. No showings -- either new or re-runs can be seen on the schedule which is leaving some to wonder if the fate of the show is in jeopardy, or if there is another explanation.
As the report states, Perez Hilton alleged that the show had been canceled, but that was debunked by TLC.
The show made its debut to incredibly high ratings, however, the ratings have not stayed as high as they were when the show premiered. What do you think of the show? Have you been watching the program since it debuted? Why do you think that the show cannot be seen on the online schedule of programming?
