Happy Halloween From The Gosselin Family Fansite! Are we ready for a new Kate Plus 8?

Hello Gosselin fans! I was checking out my old fansite last night. I was remembering how much I love my old Halloween posts! This year with an incredibly active toddler and an equally busy tween, I am overly busy and overwhelmed. It takes me going back to the simpler times of 2008 to remember how truly blessed I am. So this post perhaps will change in the next few days, or not. But in honor of Halloween, it wouldn't be a Gosselin Family Fansite without My favorite Episode 10 Little Pumpkins! TLC announced yesterday that it is premiering two new specials on November 7th, smack dab in the middle of all-important November sweeps. The first new special stars Kate Gosselin and is titled Kate Plus 8: Alaska Here We Come. The second focuses on Prince William and Kate Middleton and is called William & Kate: A Royal Love Story. Both are reality-based shows that are expected to score big ratings for TLC. This new hour-long installment of Kate Plus 8 premieres with Kate Gosselin and the kids traveling eight hours to Alaska, their longest trip ever. The Gosselins set out to see huge snow-covered mountains, bright white glaciers and hopefully whales. They enjoy some family fun in the great outdoors when they experience what it’s like to ride on an Iditarod dog sled. Then, everyone learns how to pan for gold as they head to the river in search of treasure. The excitement builds when it’s time to board the boat and head out to sea with great hopes of giant whales jumping in front of them. Kate Plus 8: Alaska Here We Come airs at 9/8c on Sunday, November 7at on TLC.

File Under: Kate Gosselin Can Never Win, The Nanny Edition, Is Kate's Cookbook Back Again? For the first time since claims broke that Kate Gosselin's newest nanny has walked off the job, the "Kate Plus 8" star was spotted out in the public. However, she wasn't exactly participating in an activity that requires much interaction -- she was keeping up her jogging habits. The reality TV mom was spotted along a route in Reading, Pennsylvania on Saturday, looking a bit tired after what can only have been a difficult week. At the request of her attorneys, Kate is also keeping mum about her ex-husband Jon's latest exploits -- which include an attempt to have his famous eight children removed from TV yet again......

Hello Gosselin fans! Ok, so lets say that now with the kids in full-time school, combined with the fact that you found out your nanny was arrested once for theft, you decided to let her go, or that she decides to quit? (In 2009, Ariel Cantara, 20 was arrested June 2  and charged with retail theft after she was seen transferring merchandise from a plastic handbasket to her open purse leaving Pathmark) How do you handle the fact that now said nanny is looking to cash in by selling a story via a "source" to Life & Style? Once again as always I give Kate Gosselin so much credit for not dealing with the media on all this BS. How do we know for sure how many nannies Kate has had and once again how is that any ones business? And how does this equate to someone being a bad parent? Is Kate Gosselin difficult to work for? That’s what Life & Style is claiming. Reportedly Kate’s been going through nannies by the boatload and recently drove yet another one out the door. A source tells them:
Kate is not the easiest person to deal with. She drove Ariel insane. Kate’s controlling and a neat freak. No wonder Ariel quit.”She has gone through about 11 nannies and tons of helpers in the past few years. Shifts can last up to 24 hours, and you have to go on trips with the family. Sleepovers are often required, and there is no set schedule with days off. You work when Kate says she needs you to work.”“Kate is unavailable to her children. She never plays with them anymore and is constantly busy with her personal affairs. That’s why she always needs a nanny!”
I’m not sure if I buy this 100%. I mean, these kids are at school all day long now. Maybe Kate had to let one of the nannies go and she’s upset? Do you thing there’s any truth to this one?

RUMOR OF THE WEEK: "Love Is In The Mix" Book to be released in 2011? TimesoftheInternet
"Kate Gosselin has stepped out of the television cameras for the time being and is planning a 2011 release of her latest book, Love Is In The Mix. The book features recipes, traditions and blessings geared to make family meal times more special, with or without Ariel Cantara or her other ex-nannies."
