Kate Plus 8

What’s a mom of 8 to do when you have multiple nannies and no job, well if you’re Kate Gosselin, you take a vacation!

The Kate Plus 8 mom was photographed once again lounging in Australia. As we reported, Kate is currently on vacation with her kids, 2 nannies, body guard, camera crew and a sound technician. The vacation is being filmed for her TLC reality show.

The photos were taken by the pool of a luxury hotel in Brisbane, Queensland on Wednesday. Kate reportedly took her kids to the zoo later on during the day. More bikini photos of Kate below.

In other Kate related news, bravolebrity Kathy Griffin announced yesterday that she is ending her Bravo reality show My Life on the D-List. And get this, the 50-year-old comedienne stated part of the reason she is leaving the show is so that she doesn’t end up like Kate Gosselin.

“It was a really tough decision because I think of the D-List as pretty much my baby for the last six seasons and I also think it was really time to stop doing it,” Kathy told PEOPLE. “Reality is great, but I really didn’t set out to be a reality star. So now it’s time to spread my wings and show that I’m a little different than Kate Gosselin. I’m not saying better,” she said, laughing, “but maybe separate myself from the pack a little bit.”

But fret not, as Bravo plans on airing four brand-new comedy specials featuring Kathy in 2011.

A smiling Kate Gosselin (a rarity) and her eight children were spotted at the Australia Brisbane Airport on Tuesday for what is being described as a family vacation.

And it wouldn’t be a Gosselin family vacation without a camera crew in tow of course. According to the HollywoodLife, Kate and her plus 8 were accompanied by cameramen, a sound technician, her beloved bodyguard/rumored beau Steve Nield, and two nannies who are pictured above with her.

Kate, 35, is having the family vacation filmed for her TLC show Kate Plus 8. RadarOnline is also reporting that Kate’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin tried to stop the vacation from happening.

Kate told Jon about the trip, and when he did not agree it was decided that the judge should intervene and the ruling went in her favor,” a source explains. “It was another slap in the face for Jon because he did not want the kids to go to Australia.”

As for the reason Jon was so against the trip down under, the source reveals that “Jon had plans to get together with his kids and friends for New Year, but now he will not see them until they return in the middle of January. He was scheduled to have them this weekend, but there was nothing he could do as the decision was taken out of his hands.”

Jon is reportedly trying to put on a brave face though he is described as being disappointed at not being able to be with his kids for the New Year.  A source adds that “the judge ruled that because it was for work it was okay.”  Wowzers.

And finally, Kate was photographed wearing a bikini as she hit the beach with her kids on Tuesday. That photo is below -

Weeks after RadarOnline reported Kate Gosselin was sad and lonely, a new report now states the Kate Plus 8 mom is ready to do something about it!

While her ex-husband of over a year, Jon Gosselin, has had numerous girlfriends since their divorce, Kate has yet to be linked to any man other than her married bodyguard.  According to Popeater, Kate, 35, is now trying to put her dramatic year of 2010 behind her, and is focused on finding a new man in 2011!

“No one wants to be a single parent,” a friend of Kate reveals. “So much of 2010 has been about the children that Kate forgot to look after herself. Now, in the New Year, Kate is determined to start dating again and hopefully find a new man.”

The source however makes it clear Kate is not willing to look for love on TV. It was rumored a while back that ABC offered Kate a chance to be the Bachelorette.

“Kate has learned her lesson about love on camera,” an insider adds. “Any dates that she goes on will be strictly private with no cameras around. It’s going to be hard enough to find a man who is willing to take on Kate plus her beautiful eight children; asking someone to do all that on camera is impossible.”

Good luck to Kate. Not that we think she needs it or anything.

It seems NYC Housewife Jill Zarin is back at it again! Well, we’ll just let you read this story and be the judge.

A new report by Popeater’s Rob Shuter reveals Jon Gosselin has finally landed himself a job! Yes, a job, a real job with no relation to reality television. And according to Popeater, we all have one Bravolebrity to thank.

“Jon is very close with Jill Zarin from ‘Real Housewives of New York,’ ” an “insider” tells Popeater. “It was Jill who told Jon to stay out of the spotlight and get himself a real job. Fame is fun but doesn’t pay the bills.”

So what exactly is Jon’s new job? Apparently, Jon is now working for a real estate developer. A source adds that Jon has gotten his life together and now sees his children three to four times a week.

“Jon is in a great place,” a friend of Jon’s reveals. “He is happy and knows what a fool he made of himself after his split from Kate. He has been getting a lot of TV offers, including interest from ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ and has turned them all down. If he never sees a TV camera again in his life it will be too soon.”

Meanwhile, the report adds that we should not expect to see Kate Gosselin off our TV screens anytime soon. Despite the fact that the ratings of her show Kate Plus 8 continue to drop, the show is still doing well enough for the TLC network. Her show continues to remain in the top 10 for TLC and the network reportedly isn’t looking to part ways with her anytime soon.

“Even if her show did get canceled, Kate would find a way to still be famous,” a friend of Kate states. “She addicted to it.”

Who would have thought we would see the day when Jon would become the “normal” parent. Also nice to see Jill is still as crafty as ever.

A year and a half after quitting her job as the Governor of Alaska for reasons we’re still uncertain of (her rambling speech didn’t quite make it clear), Sarah Palin continues to ride high.

An ABC news report estimates Sarah has earned over $12 million dollar since quitting her gubernatorial position last year. $7 million of that amount came from her book deal with $2 million coming from TLC. Sarah reportedly received $250,000 per episode for each of the eight episodes of her TLC reality show – Sarah Palin’s Alaska. No wonder she agreed to go on the camping trip from hell with Kate Gosselin. Sarah also earns $100,000 per speaking engagement.

According to a new Popeater report, Sarah’s show was a major success for TLC and the network is now trying to sign her for a second season. Her show debuted to over 4.96 million viewers and the episode with Kate Gosselin brought in over 3 million viewers. Kate Plus 8 on the other hand is only bringing in 1.3 million viewers per episode this season.

“For sure the network is doing everything it possibly can to convince Sarah to do another season, but at the end of the day it looks like it will all come down to money,” a TLC insider tells Rob Shuter of Popeater.

“Sarah knows to strike when the iron is hot and started talking about season two right after the show debuted to huge numbers,” a friend of Sarah reveals. “She knows that celebrities get millions of dollar for each episode of their shows and thinks she’s worth it too. Jennifer Aniston took home millions from ‘Friends’ and in Sarah’s eyes, she’s no different.”

A TV expert adds that if Sarah plays her cards right, it would not be impossible for her to get $1 million an episode for a second season, though we at Reality Tea highly doubt that.

Days after PEOPLE magazine (a very reputable mag) reported that two of her kids were expelled from their private school, TLC star Kate Gosselin went on national television and lied denied her kids were expelled, simply stating she decided to withdraw them from their school for some home tutoring.

Kate admitted that her kids were indeed acting out but blamed it on her divorce. Well RadarOnline is now reporting today that not only were Kate’s two kids – Alexis and Collin Gosselin – both age 6, kicked out of school for rage issues and bullying other kids, but also for harming an adult.

According to Radar, one of the expelled kids physically harmed an adult at the school not once, but twice! This reportedly created a situation that caused school administrators to believe they had no choice but expel the kid.

While the nature and extent of the adult’s injuries are unknown, the situation was severe enough that it contributed heavily to the school’s decision to expel the children.

Radar also reports that Kate’s decision to go on national television and lie about her kids’ expulsion has caused an even bigger rift between she and her ex-husband Jon Gosselin, as Jon knows the truth.

“Both Jon and Kate were sent a letter from the head of school explaining that despite their best efforts, staff had reached a point at which they had to request the children enroll in another program,” a source close to the school told Radar. “It’s clear Kate did not tell the truth.”

As for the kids, sources reveal that they need to be integrated back into private school as quickly as possible because “Alexis and Collin could go to a public school but they would be photographed and harassed.”

On last night’s episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, TLC tried a cruel and unusual experiment by putting together arguably two of the most controversial women/public figures in recent times.

Kate Gosselin and her plus eight made a special appearance on Sarah Palin’s show this weekend, as she joined the Palin family for what was supposed to be a fun camping adventure.

Kate however made that impossible as she pretty much whined and complained from the minute she got there. In fact, Palin’s father put it best when he stated Kate “bitched from the moment she got off the plane.”

“Look there’s a bear on the floor, did anyone notice?” said Kate in a patronizing tone upon arriving at Sarah’s home and things only got worse from there. Below are just a few of Kate’s bitchy comments through out the show -

“I’m worried about my toes; they’re freezing.”

“I’ve been bitten [by bugs] about 200 times — it’s horrible.”

“I’m miserable, but somebody’s gotta be.”

“This is cruel and unusual punishment.”

And before the camping trip was officially over, the Kate Plus 8 mom decided she was over the entire thing. “This is ridiculous!” Kate shrieked. “I just don’t get it! There are no paper towels! I’m freezing to the bone, I have 19 layers on, my hands are frigid! … I held it together as long as I could, and I’m done now.”

Yikes. As for Sarah Palin’s response to Kate’s bad attitude, she tweeted the following – “Life=10% circumstances, 90% your reaction to circumstances. Sunday’s “Sarah Palin’s AK ‘Alaskan Hospitality’” episode illustrates that a bit.”

*HAPPY THANKSGIVING!*

In an all new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kate Gosselin finally opens up about the news of her two kids being expelled from private school.

In Touch magazine was the first media outlet to break the news two weeks ago, reporting that two of the Gosselin kids – Alexis and Collin Gosselin – both age 6, were kicked out of school for “rage issues” and bullying other kids.

Now the Kate Plus 8 mom is denying her kids were expelled, instead claiming she elected to pull them out of school for home tutoring. “Two of my children are being tutored at home, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school, doing the identical curriculum,” Kate stated in the interview.

So why randomly pull two out of your eight children from school? “The pressure was getting to them,” she said. “You have the divorce anger mixed in with that. … The goal is to get them back into school as soon as possible.”

Right. PEOPLE magazine, which also reported the expulsion story, is however not retracting their story. In fact, they published another article yesterday following Kate’s interview, which reiterated the fact that the kids were indeed expelled from their private school.
