"I've always been on Team Kate. More than just on it, really. More like a founding member of the club. Especially when her TLC reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8 turned into the Jon Gosselin Can't Stop Bitching and Moaning and Cheating show in late 2009. I felt like she got a bad rap for being a busy mother (one who is mothering eight little kids, mind you). So when I hear that she took all eight of her kids to a Taylor Swift concert, I couldn't be happier for her. After the show, she tweeted, "Thank u again 4 thrilling 8 little Gosselins & their mom:) w/ a great meeting & show! We love u -- always have/always will! Xoxo." She also said, "Just waking up here. Concert was amazing! My little girls danced along imitating the ballet dancers onstage & we all sang loud together! SO fun!" and "Taylor is amazing. Great role model 4 my girls, her mom is sweet & we love them! Sumthing I can do to bond w my kids!" and "A-mazing concert, @taylorswift13 omg amazing! I've seen Taylor three times now in concert & this 1 is the best yet!" The nine Gosselins also had the chance to meet and greet and hug Swift before the show started, so Kate also tweeted about that. "Hi! We r@ Taylor Swift's concert & we r loving r Taylor! Just came from giving hugs & wishing her luck tonight! Can't wait 2 c show-Speak Now!"

8 Movie Makers: Although the eight Gosselin children are no strangers to being on camera, they have a lot to learn about being behind the camera when making their own movie! Once completed, they take to the red carpet, Hollywood-style, for the premiere of their film.
Movie-making with the Kate Plus 8 kids indieweek.com
Lozoff taught filmmaking to the daughter of one of the producers at Figure 8, Kirk Streb, a few years ago, and he fondly remembered the experience when the Figure 8 staff were brainstorming ideas for upcoming episodes. He also knew that one of the 10-year-old Gosselin twins, Mady, really likes putting on little plays. So Figure 8 flew Lozoff to Pennsylvania in March to make a "cute little movie with the Gosselin kids." Lozoff isn't allowed to discuss the particulars of the movie she and the kids came up with. She did say that the two older girls, Cara and Mady, came up with the story, and the 6-year-olds stuck to acting. Even though they've all spent their lives in front of the cameras, acting still presented a bit of a challenge. "They're comfortable in front of the camera, but all of that acting and blocking—that was brand new," Lozoff says, adding that, otherwise: "They're basically like all the other kids that I've worked with." Lozoff went back to Pennsylvania in late May/ early June for the "premiere" of the film in the family's basement. That was the first time that the mom saw the mini-movie, according to Lozoff. "Kate wasn't really around while we were making the movie, because they wanted it to be a surprise for her," she says. "We rented a red carpet and sort of decorated their basement and did their little premiere." That's typical of Lozoff's process with her Movie-Makers camp kids. After the films are made, she'll spend a few weeks editing and then will rent out a venue to show her kids the finished products. Most recently, she rented out The Varsity on Franklin Street. She also has "an advanced group" that makes more professional-caliber films to submit to film festivals. Another particular she's not allowed to talk about much is Kate Gosselin, the fiery star of the show (which, interestingly, is not on the fall schedule recently announced by TLC). "She was always very gracious"
Kate also shot down the rumors on Twitter, telling a follower who asked her about the show’s future: “Zero Truth! Not going anywhere!!! Tons of fun to be had!” And there you have it!

Radar Online: If looking good is the best revenge, then Kate Gosselin is a big winner!
The famous mother of eight looked absolutely fabulous on Friday, flaunting her toned and taut figure in only a sports bra and athletic shorts. Kate even got the chance to show off her bodacious bod in front of her ex-husband, as he picked up their brood of children. After working up a sweat during her daily jog, the athletic 36-year-old took down her hair and met Jon, who pulled up in his supersized van outside of Kate's Pennsylvania home. As Jon started to pull away with the kids safely packed away, Kate ran up to the van to give him one last message - maybe she was sharing some workout tips!
Kate Gosselin was on Hill-Man Morning Show where she talked about working to save for her kids and their future education. "Every parent never feels there is enough saved for thier kids." Watch this at WAAF
