All New Kate Plus 8 Movie Making & Cupcakes! Kate Gosselin On The Today Show

Hello Gosselin fans! Yes it's been a while since Ive personalized a true hello in Gosselin-Land. But everyone has been very busy this Summer and I expect that! Kate Gosselin will also be on the Today Show Monday morning and The Joy Behar Show. And of course she's been Twittering up a storm recently which everyone loves. (You can follow her on Twitter @Kateplusmy8). She mentioned earlier this week that she was going to try and tweet during the show Monday night. You may have also heard some discussion this week about Kate Plus 8 being canceled because it is not on TLC’s fall schedule. RumorFix reached out to an executive at TLC and was told that Kate is still with the network. “New episodes begin August 8th,” she explains, adding that the new shows will air through the end of September. We can't wait. Hey didn't the haters say Kate was "done" about a million times already? Aren't they tired of hoping this?? xoxoBM

DC Cupcakes:
Kate takes Mady and Cara and their two best friends, who are also sisters, to visit and bake with the stars of TLC’s DC Cupcakes, Sophie and Katherine. Back home with the sextuplets, it’s a boys vs. girls summer games competition. Who will win?

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 
North Carolina-based actress Melissa Lozoff runs filmmaking classes and workshops for kids at Movie-Makers, a project she founded in 2001. Fans of reality TV can get a glimpse of her teaching process on Monday, Aug. 8, at 9:30 p.m. on the TLC channel. "I basically make films with kids," Lozoff says. In fact, she's in the middle of giving classes and summer camp with kids right now at her property in Orange County. She also just got finished with some acting work on One Tree Hill in Wilmington. "The kids help come up with the ideas for the script," Lozoff describes Movie-Makers. "They basically learn the aspects of filmmaking, and then they get to star in their own movie." Those classes and summer camps always take place on her Orange County property, with one recent exception—the movie project she did with the Gosselin kids at the family's Pennsylvania compound for this Monday's second episode of TLC's Kate Plus 8. (The first episode airs at 9.) Lozoff's brief involvement in the reality TV show came about because of a longstanding North Carolina connection to the show. The original incarnation of the series, Jon & Kate Plus 8, was created by Advanced Medical Production (later known as Figure 8 Films) in 2007, back when Jon and Kate were still a couple whose experiment with fertility treatments yielded twins, then sextuplets. (That version of the show ended when Jon's infidelities nixed the marriage.)
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!

Kate Gosselin on Boston Radio Saves For Her Kids, Brings Out "Abs" When Jon's Around

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

Fan News: OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Plus Kate Plus 8

"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!"
Jon Gosselin's New Tweets: Subtle dig at Kate? You decide:
"RT jongosselin1:Well all their traveling makes them sick, that's what they tell me. I think they are just worn out. Glad they can rest here!"
'Kate Plus 8': Kate Gosselin brings out the abs with Jon around:
While there are probably plenty of people out there saying that "Kate Gosselin is trying to show off in front of Jon" with this newest story, it really doesn't appear to be that way -- even if that is what some photos are suggesting.
A number of photographs caught the "Kate Plus 8" star out for one of her traditional runs Friday, where she was working on keeping up her physique. Following a recent (and stressful) trip to Yellowstone National Park, Kate does still appear to be in great shape -- but on this occasion, she had to find the time to greet her ex-husband. It has been a little while since Jon was able to spend some time with the children, but now he will have them for at least the weekend. While he may be hiding from the public eye as much as possible, the former reality star seems to have a relationship going with girlfriend Ellen Ross -- after all, he said recently that he plans on marrying her at some point (even though we don't know when that will be). Do you find it amazing how much Jon and Kate's own lives have changed since the divorce?
