Yesterday, TLC announced Kate Plus 8: Sextuplets Turn 10 will air as a two-part special and focus on how the kids – twins Cara and Mady and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel – have grown and what's new in Kate's life and career.
TLCshared, "The special also looks back at some of the most memorable and poignant family moments from the past several years and highlights what the day-to-day routine has been like for Kate and the kids since we last saw them." Viewers will also see spring break activities, family outings, and the sextuplets' carnival-themed 10th birthday party.
The Kate Plus 8 special premieres June 19 and concludes June 26 – and the fun begins at 10/9c both nights. Check out a short video clip of Kate Plus 8: Sextuplets Turn 10 below. Aww Kate is just as warm as I remember her to be.
Rumor has it, no one's favorite father of eight, Jon Gosselin, lost his job as a waiter. Raise your hand if you're shocked.
Last year, Jon started waiting and bussing tables in PA. At the time, he said he couldn't find an IT job that was flexible enough for a father of eight. Let's play along, shall we, and pretend he actually parents eight children on a daily basis. No judgment here. Waiting tables is an honest day's work – and it's more "real world" work thanKate Gosselin has done since Jon & Kate Plus 8 aired.
That said, Radar reported, Jon was fired from this job a few months ago. "Jon was fired for blowing off shifts and coming in late," claimed the source. "He had no work ethic and felt he could come and go as he pleased."
So who would have ever thought that Jon Gosselin would be reconciling with ex-wife Kate? It's crazy, right? I'm kidding, of course! The former Jon & Kate Plus Eight stars still despise one another, but I needed a good teaser. The pair is once again at odds in the media (because being pissed at each other in private doesn't garner any attention).
Lashing out about his wife's decision to feature their twins and sextuplets on a TLC update special, Jon is expressing his disgust and disappointment with the fact he wasn't asked to be included at the lengths Kate will go to in exploiting their children. You know, I was truly on Jon's side until I watched him on Couples Therapy. Geez. Cue the violins!
With two parents who have made a career of famewhoring and will do anything to stay in the limelight, it comes as no surprise that Kate has plans for a TLC reunion show about what her life is like now. The network announced, “It’s now been over two years since we’ve last seen the Gosselin clan, and Kate and the kids are catching up with TLC for an hour-long special, slated to air in June.”
I know, I know. Like you, I thought we'd (kind of) heard the last of Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars Jon Gosselin and ex-wife Kate. Sure, they'd appear every once in a while with a complaint or a new haircut, but, for the most part, they had left the building.
Enter VH1's Couples Therapy. With that one reality television gem that sensationalized Jon's "journey" post-divorce, the most dysfunctional family of eight was once again thrust down our throats like a bad corn dog. I'll be honest…I'd been Team Jon because I believed he'd intentionally dropped off our radar in an effort to be a "normal, hard-working dad," but in all actuality, he's just as much a fame whore as his ridiculous ex. Thanks, TLC. That was a can of worms that should have never been opened!
In the latest issue of In Touch Weekly, Jon regales us with tales of what a terrible mother Kate Gosselin is and now wants to fight her for custody of their sextuplets. This all comes weeks after Kate dropped a lawsuit against Jon claiming he stole information from her that was later used in a purported tell-all expose that accused her of being obsessed with fame and abusing her eight kids.
"They live in fear of Kate,” Jon claims of the nine-year-old sextuplets. “Every time I see them, they tell me they want to live with me.” In a recent Today Show interview, Jon and Kate's twins Mady and Kara refused to answer questions and displayed some serious animosity towards their mom. “It was horrible to watch,” recounts Jon.
Let's get reaaadddy to ruuuummmmbbble!! It's Round (who can keep count?) of Jon and Kate. In this corner, weighing in with a job as a waiter and the recent cover of In Touch, we have Jon Gosselin…and in this corner, former chicken hair heavy weight champion and gracing People magazine, it's Kate Gosselin!
Who will win this latest bout of what's best for the former couple's eight kids? Both appeared onJon & Kate Plus 8, but now Jon is worried about what being thrust into the limelight has done to their kids. Kate, on the other hand, would love to get her brood back on your small screen. So, who's side are you on? Let's start with Jon, shall we?
Is Kate Gosselin extending an olive branch? Perhaps she's sick of being on the fringe in the tabloids? Nah, that can't be it. Could it be that all the money she spends on styling, manicures, and tanning don't allow for a big legal battle against her ex-husband Jon and author Robert Hoffman.
As you recall, Kate waged a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Robert who authored Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World as well as the father of her eight children after the self-published book painted the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality star in a not so pretty light. Yeah, it was just the book that did that…
