Reality star Kate Gosselin appeared on the Today Show Friday to promote her new TLC show - Kate Plus 8, which premiered this Sunday.

In the interview, Kate defended her decision to appear on Dancing With The Stars, discussed the now dropped child custody case, and also briefly touched on Jon Gosselin’s girlfriend(s).

Kate revealed that Jon has dropped his attempt to try to seek custody of their eight children. “At this very moment, things are peaceful. He’s agreeing to (a schedule involving) every other weekend and dinner nights. I think that’s a perfect amount of time (with the kids),” said Kate. “The custody mess has been dropped by him and so I think he’s realized that it’s best that they’re at home in their house where they belong, with me the majority of the time. At this moment, it’s peaceful.”

“Jon’s decisions remain Jon’s decisions,” continued Kate when asked about Jon’s new 23-year-old girlfriend Ellen Ross, whom he recently introduced to the kids. “It’s just for me to help the kids deal with it … They ask me questions where his girlfriends are concerned, and it’s just a situation that I have to deal with with them.”

When asked if she’s ready to start dating, “No,” replied Kate. “I don’t feel like it’s time. I feel my kids need so much of me that I need to be there for them. Personally, I don’t feel ready to move forward.”

And when it comes to the heavy criticism she received for appearing on DWTS, Kate defends her decicion. “No, they (the public) don’t really (understand) much of anything. And it’s OK. I only have my kids to answer to, so that’s fine. All the other stuff, whatever,” said Kate. “It was a job, it’s work. Neither of my other two shows (‘Kate Plus Eight’ and ‘Twist of Kate,’ were in production, and we all need income, so it was work.”

Jon Gosselin was photographed introducing his 23-year-old girlfriend to his kids just two weeks ago, and according to a new report, Ellen Ross was not that eager to meet them.

The latest issue of Us Weekly reports Ellen, who has been dating the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad since mid-April is simply using Jon to “be famous” and that “she hates kids.”  Another source reveals it was Ellen who “pushed Jon to finally meet his kids because she knew it would get her attention.”  A source close to Jon however denies Ellen is using him for fame.

And as for how Jon’s ex-wife Kate Gosselin is dealing with all this? An insider tells US Kate, 35, “was heartbroken to see a stranger hugging her kids.”

Kate’s heartbreak will however likely be short lived as her new show, Kate Plus 8, premieres on TLC this Sunday, June 6.

Jon and Kate Gosselin were photographed together yesterday, for the first time in months.

The big event was the birthday for their sextuplets, as the six kids turned 6 years old yesterday.  According to UsWeekly, later that day, Jon took Alexis, Aaden, Collin, Leah, Hannah, and Joel and his twins, Mady and Cara, out for a few hours to celebrate. He was later spotted shooting Silly String at photographers.

Kate, 35, is reported to have thrown her sextuplets a pool party at their $1.1 million Pennsylvania home on Sunday.

In other news, TLC also announced recently that Kate’s new show, Kate Plus 8, will premiere June 6 on TLC.  As we previously reported, Kate Plus 8 will be similar to the old show, Jon and Kate Plus 8, but without Jon of course.

Jon also reportedly wants back on the show as a means to earn more money.  According to numerous reports, Jon, who is currently jobless, is going broke and cannot afford to pay his $22,000-a-month child support.  TLC is however not too keen on having Jon back on their network.

Despite appearing on Dancing With The Stars, and every entertainment news show known to man, Kate Gosselin’s new book has failed to impress.

The book titled ‘I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith, and Family,’ has only sold 10,084 copies since its April 13th release reports UsWeekly. The non-fiction title debuted at #11 on the New York Times’ non fiction bestseller list, and at #103 on USA Today’s bestsellers chart.

Compared to the huge success of her previous books, including Multiple Blessings which sold 523,000 copies in 2009, the sales numbers for the new book is down right disastrous. According to experts, it is on par to sell only 50,000 copies, despite her recent media blitz.

There is however some good news for Kate. According to TMZ, the Pennsylvania Dept. of Labor has approved and cleared her eight children to continue to appear on reality television. As we previously reported, Kate has two new upcoming reality shows with the TLC network, including Kate Plus 8, which will continue to follow the lives of Kate and her eight children.

Kate Gosselin Crying on DWTS

It was eight minus Kate night on Dancing With The Stars as Kate Gosselin was finally sent packing after five weeks of awful dancing.

Despite having been saved for five consecutive weeks with low scores, the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom ran out of luck on Tuesday night. Kate found herself in the bottom two alongside Pamela Anderson and her partner Damian Whitewood.

Once it was announced that she would be the one going home, Kate looked a bit stunned.  “I need a minute,” she said as she wiped tears from her eyes.  While emotional and speechless, her partner Tony Dovolani, who was shown fighting quite a bit with Kate this season, stepped in, saying:  “You know what? I’m very proud of Kate.”  He continued, “I know she gets a lot of criticism I give her all the credit in the world for showing up. As exhausted as she was, she still showed up every single day.”

Kate, 35, then added,  “I had the opportunity [to do this show]. I’m very, very honored to have been here. I love everyone that I met. It was a great experience.”  When asked what she had to say to her fans who kept her on the show for five weeks despite her low scores, she added, “Wow, thank you for believing in me, probably more than I believed in myself.”

In a later interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kate shared that though she is okay with leaving the show,  her eight kids however “will be upset, definitely,” she said. “They will be shattered, in fact.” She said she is not “letting them watch” her elimination episode, so that “they’ll be OK. They’ll be glad to have me back. I’m thrilled to have been here and obviously going back to my kids is always a wonderful thing.”

Allrighty then Kate.  UnFortunately this will not be the last we see of Kate. As we recently reported, she has two upcoming reality shows with the TLC network – Twist of Kate and Kate Plus 8.

The vile interesting character we have all come to know as Jon Gosselin is back at it again.  The latest is now that Jon wants back on TLC with ex-wife Kate Gosselin.

TLC officially announced last week that Kate Plus 8, former known as Jon & Kate Plus 8, will go on without Jon.  However, Jon’s lawyer revealed to TMZ this week that the 32 year-old broke reality star is “definitely open” to co-starring with ex-wife Kate on a new TV project.

Jon’s lawyer Anthony F. List, tells TMZ that “under the right circumstances” Jon would do a show with Kate, but “the contract would have to be tighter.”  He failed to elaborate on what he meant on the having a “tighter” contract.

As expected, TLC is not interested in having Jon back on the network.  A source tells RadarOnline that Jon is not welcome at TLC or the Discovery network.   “The show will go on – without Jon,” the source added. “Nobody wants him back on the air.”

In other Kate news, her own brother Kevin Kreider, whom she is estranged from, testified at a Philadelphia hearing on child labor laws and reality shows today, and he did not have nice things to say about Kate or the TLC show.

Kevin said he believes the 8 Gosselin children suffered psychological damage while filming Jon & Kate Plus 8. According to Kevin,the kids had no privacy during the taping — even their potty training was captured on video.  Kevin also claims the kids were manipulated by producers who wanted drama.

TLC however denies Kevin’s claims, telling TMZ, the allegations are “either completely inaccurate or a distorted representation for maximum attention.”

Get ready to see a whole lot more of Kate Gosselin! TLC has announced today that the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom will not only be starring in one, but rather two reality shows this year.

Kate, who is currently tanking on Dancing With The Stars, will headline her own show, Twist of Kate, on TLC.

According to the network, Twist of Kate, set to debut this summer, will be a 12-episode series that will feature Kate responding to fan letters from those who are inspired by her story as a way to profile the personal challenges her fans face. Kate will then travel the country to meet her fans’ families and to try their jobs.

“I look at it as a loose concept,” Kate, 35, told USA Today about her new show. “I want to be out there learning from others, helping to provide insight whenever I can, though I don’t consider myself an expert on anything.”

On to reality show number two, thanks to the settlement TLC was able to reach with Jon Gosselin earlier this year, Kate Plus 8 will also be making it’s debut this year. If you recall, Jon & Kate Plus 8 was canceled last year after Jon declared he had an epiphany and no longer wanted his kids to be filmed anymore.

The Kate Plus 8 series will be in the form of specials focusing on her new life as a single mom to her eight children.

Jon has also made headlines as he filed a motion this week in an attempt to gain primary custody of his eight children. His lawyer revealed earlier this week that he is having to pay Kate $22,000 a month in child support. He is accusing Kate of being an absentee mother due to her DWTS gig. There are also rumblings that Jon is going broke, which might explain a motive for taking Kate to court.

TLC and Jon Gosselin have finally come to terms in their lawsuits against each other.

TLC released a statement today confirming it has reached a settled with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad. “TLC has reached a settlement with Jon Gosselin and will be undertaking procedural steps to conclude the litigation. All terms of the settlement are confidential. The whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC,” TLC said in a statement released Wednesday.

This all started when Jon decided to ban TLC from filming his eight children last year citing an epiphany that she show was hurting them. Coincidentally this epiphany just happened to occur days after TLC announced it would no longer have Jon on the hit show, thus changing the name of the show to Kate Plus 8.

TLC alleged Jon had breached his contract and sued him. Jon in return filed a countersuit against TLC for millions. TLC won the first round as a Judge banned Jon from doing any interviews or paid appearances last December. We reported weeks ago that Jon was willing to allow TLC to film his kids again if they would drop their suit against him.

TLC’s Wednesday statement adds that “The whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC.”

Jon’s ex-wife, Kate Gosselin’s untitled show is still set to debut sometime later this year on TLC. The program will not focus on the couple’s eight kids. No word yet on whether TLC will now continue with Kate Plus 8.

Jon’s attorney, Mark Heller, released the following statement -

“Jon has expressed his desire to close the litigation chapter of Jon & Kate Plus 8 and although all terms are confidential, he is hopeful that TLC will move forward with the best interests of the Gosselin family. Sometimes litigants that kiss and make up find their relationship is better the second time around. As Jon’s attorney I truly hope that this new adventure for TLC and the Gosselins is a much more joyful journey.”
