Ding dong the witch is deadKate Gosselin’s reality TV career is officially over!
Just moments ago, the TLC network announced it has canceled Kate’s reality show Kate Plus 8.
“TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8,” the network said in a statement. “By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future.”
The cancellation of Kate’s show comes as no surprise as we reported back in April that ratings for the show were at their lowest in years. At that time, new episodes of Kate Plus 8 were averaging just over 874,000 viewers per episode.
Earlier this year, a report came out stating – “If her ratings drop to the 1 million mark this will be her last season, and then Kate would have to get a real job.”
Well folks, it now appears Kate, 36, will indeed have to get a real J.O.B to care for her plus eight.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KATE’S SHOW BEING CANCELED? WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE’S GOING TO DO NOW?
Following what can only be described as the most dramatic season yet, the ladies gather together in the same room to rehash some of the season’s most dramatic moments. Meeka and Tami will get into it again, while Royce will of course argue with the “circle.” John Salley returns to host the show again this year. It airs tonight at 8/7c on VH1 and a preview clip is below! There are also rumors that Eric Williams might make an appearance on the show (part 1 or part 2) to discuss the drink tossing incident.
In other news, the show’s resident sh*t starter executive producer Shaunie O’Neal is now speaking out against the recent fighting on the show. This is after it came out that the episode featuring the Tami Roman and Meeka Claxtonfight was one of the highest rated of the season. In fact, last week’s finale episode with the drink throwing incident was its highest rated in over 2 years with over 2.6 million viewers tuning in.
Well Shaunie is now claiming she is embarrassed by what the show has become. “When I started the show I really just wanted to follow this group of ladies around. We all have a common bond; we understand each others’ lives. It started as that. Since then, it’s taken on a life of its own,” Shaunie told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. “I never imagined it would be a group of ladies fighting and arguing that way that they do. That was never part of the plan.”
It didn’t end there as Shaunie reveals she feels conflicted that the episodes with the fights garner higher ratings. “I hate that it has to be a fight or an argument that gives us 4.2 million viewers. I hate that, but it’s something where I’m working as hard as I can to show some type of balance, because it is there. We’re going to try to do more of that in season four,” she said. “I know that people love the fighting and the arguing, but I do want to have some positive in there somewhere.” Right Shaunie. Are you buying it?
In a statement to TMZ, Camille states: “Some joking remarks I made to Kyle Richards got picked up and caused my ex-husband great embarrassment and for that I sincerely apologize. While the media added words and blew it out of proportion, I acknowledge my part in this and regret my remarks.”
She adds, “I offered a 50/50 physical split with joint custody and was soundly rejected… Now he will only communicate through lawyers and others and I fear the message we’re sending our children.” Well surely telling the world their father has a small package can’t be good for the kids.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE’S APOLOGY? DO YOU THINK IT’S SINCERE?
The reason? Well Jacqueline made some very interesting/cryptic tweets over the weekend which appeared to be about Teresa but we’ll let you be the judge. A screen shot of those tweets are below –
Even more interesting? Jacqueline no longer follows Teresa on twitter! Plus Jacqueline was at Melissa’s release party on Friday with Teresa and the rest of the RHONJ castmates so perhaps something went down at that event. The first tweet (the last one in the above screenshot) was made at 1:42am on Saturday morning.
In other NJ news, as her new VH1 show Famous Food continues to flop, former RHONJ star Danielle Staub continues her desperate attempt to stay in the news.
Almost a week after claiming Melissa Gorga was the one feeding her information about Teresa last year, Danielle now has her sights set on “exposing” the RHONJ stars for reasons only known to Danielle. Below are some of her tweets –
“I am sick of what they do to my family did anyone ever think about that? something bad happens to them they drag my Family down!”
“If I disclosed all the info that people have sent to me ~ clown head would even cry real tears this time – people see through their facade”
“They broke all deals by continuing to speak about me one full year I stayed quiet – I thought they’d stop!! Enough already!!”
As we reported days ago, Danielle appears to be working hard to get her story about Melissa and Teresa out to a national magazine.
And finally, an all new episode of the RHONJ titled ‘Child’s Play No More‘ airs tonight on Bravo! On the 13th episode this season, Teresa’s children have a play date with Melissa’s children, yet the kids seemingly show more maturity than their parents. Meanwhile, Kathy mulls over how to nurture her teen daughter. And Ashley’s father pays her a surprise visit, but there may be more going on than simply a family reunion.
It airs at 10/9c and a preview clip is below –

TELL US – DO YOU THINK JACQUELINE’S TWEETS ARE ABOUT TERESA? THOUGHTS ON DANIELLE’S COMMENTS, THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
The reason? Well according to a new report by the Rumorfix, the decision to leave or continue the show is NOT up to Jill! It is completely up to Bravo as Jill remains under contract with the network.
In fact, a source close to the show confirms that if Jill does leave the show, it won’t be because she chose to move on.
“Bravo decides who comes back, they are the ones who draw up the contracts. It seems like Jill is just trying to give herself an out in case she isn’t asked back, or just phased out,” reveals the source.
So there you have folks, this appears to be nothing but a poor attempt by the Jillousy to save face in case Bravo decides to fire her.
Personally, believe it or not, I would like to see Jill remain on the cast as she is a key part of the show as is Ramona Singer. I think starting with an all new cast will prove to be a risky move for Bravo. A good option might be to fire Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop, and then bring in 3 new housewives aka some new blood to join Jill, Ramona, LuAnn, Alex and Sonja.
The bad news for Jill however is that fans of RHONY feel very differently. Our poll asking whether or not you want Jill to return had over 82% of fans voting NO! A similar poll done by the Rumorfix had over 83% of fans voting no. The question now is will Bravo listen?
TELL US – SURPRISED BY THIS REPORT? WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE BRAVO DO? BRING IN A NEW CAST OR FIRE SOME OF THE CURRENT CAST MEMBERS?
In a complete shocker, evicted HG Brendon Villegas received the most votes (the poll results are below) and was able to battle Lawon to return to the house. Really America? Brendon garnering the most votes was all the more shocking since every poll I’d seen online had Cassie in the lead, our poll included.
Rachel’s man of course won against Lawon and returned to the BB house, thus finally proving what we knew all along – which is that Lawon made the dumbest move in Big Brother history.
Following Brendon’s return, an HOH competition was played. Below is the new HOH winner, the shocking nominees and POV winner!
