While Kate Gosselin attempted to put on a happy face following news that her TLC show Kate Plus 8 had been cancelled, a new report is now stating that is far from the case.

According to the Hollybaby blog, Kate is “very depressed” by TLC’s decision and was blindsided by it.

“Kate didn’t even learn about the cancellation from TLC until a few minutes before the story broke,” reveals a source. Ouch. “Kate is devastated. She had no idea that her show was going to be cancelled, she thought this was something they’d film on and off until the kids went to college.”

Another source close to the TLC show echoes the same sentiment. “Kate thought the show would go on forever, she expected it to.” Unfortunately for Kate, ratings for the show fell sharply this season bringing in less than a million viewers per episode. This apparently wasn’t worth it to the TLC network, which reportedly pays the mom of eight a lot of money.

In the meantime, the sources reveal they do not know what Kate is planning to do next. “Kate doesn’t know what she’s going to do, she’s getting lots of offers but hasn’t settled on anything.”

Perhaps the next step in Katie’s life is becoming a stage mom a la pimpmomager Kris Jenner and Dina Lohan! Moments after her show was cancelled, Kate hinted on twitter that she has no plans to stop making money off her kids one of her eldest kids, 10-year-old Mady Gosselin, is interested in acting, specifically on the Disney channel!

“Aww that Mady… So well spoken! Wants to do MORE tv!!! Disney anyone? Lol” And when a fan tweeted her that “Mady is a star in the making,” Kate replied “AGREED! MADY SAYS ‘THANKYOU!’”

Kate also had an interesting response when a fan wondered if she planned on going back into nursing. Kate replied, “I plan on staying on tv :) but if I have to to provide for my 8 lovelies, of course!” She plans on staying on TV? How entitled is this woman??? Good luck with that Katie!

As for Kate’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin, he made it clear he no longer wants his plus eight to be on television. Jon revealed last week that he was “very relieved” the show was cancelled. “I hope they can have more private family moments,” said Jon. “I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?

Ding dong the witch is dead Kate 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?

In today’s shocking news, Jon Gosselin has found himself a new job as a — gasp — construction worker!

Yes, TMZ is reporting that the 33-year-old father of eight began working with Green Point Energy, a Pennsylvania-based company that specializes in renewable energy, earlier this week.

The above photo was taken as Jon was hard at work installing solar panels on the roof of a storage building. Jon, a onetime technology worker, had reportedly been unemployed for over a year before a brief stint working for a real estate developer back in December.

In other Gosselin news, Kate Gosselin appeared on CBS’ talk show – The Talk this week, during which she refuted any comparisons of her TLC show Kate Plus 8 to Disney show “Hannah Montana” which Billy Ray Cyrus, father of teen star Miley Cyrus, has now said “ruined” his relationship with his daughter.

According to Kate, “the big difference” between “Hannah Montana” and “Kate Plus 8” is that on her series, “We’re not scripted, we’re living it.”

Kate also claimed the show has never interfered with her parenting her children. “I am still the parent on camera and off camera,’ she said. “I have zero regrets.”

She went on to credit her TLC show with being able to afford her family “amazing experiences,” such as the recent trip to Australia and New Zealand. “My kids have traveled the world,” she said adding that the film crew has become part of the family.

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.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON JON GETTING A JOB? SHOULD KATE QUIT REALITY TELEVISION AS WELL?

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.

Is Kate Gosselin’s reality empire about to crumble?

According to the latest issue of InTouch weekly, TLC has decided to cancel Kate’s reality show, Kate Plus 8. The reason? Well, it all has to do with Kate’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin.

Sources tell the mag that Jon has refused to re-sign a contract allowing his children to be filmed for the TV show, apparently telling his friends his kids hate being on camera 24 hours a day.

“Kate is beside herself,” says an insider. “She is obsessed with fame and being on TV, so this is making her miserable. Not only that, but she wants more money! She won’t last at home with the kids.”

The insider adds that Kate, 35, is now scrambling to find new ways to prolong her 15 minutes. “She’s buddying up with Bristol and Sarah Palin, among other famous friends,” reveals the insider, adding that Kate “fears that her fame is coming to an end, but she’s more worried that her income seems to be drying up.”

Kate Gosselin and Sarah Palin

Seems to be a lot going on in the life of Kate Gosselin these days.

First comes confirmation from the TLC network that Kate will be appearing on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s upcoming reality show, titled Sarah Palin’s Alaska. This is not surprising as the Kate Plus Eight mom was photographed visiting Alaska two weeks ago with her eight kids in tow.

“The Palins graciously shared their Alaska with the Gosselin family and that camping trip will be part of an upcoming episode,” TLC president and general manager Eileen O’Neill said.

The series, featuring the former Alaska Governor and various members of her family and an array of Alaskans all across the state, will premiere Sunday, Nov. 14 at 9 p.m. Kate will be appearing on the premiere episode. It is said that Sarah took Kate and her kids camping during their Alaska visit. No word yet on if Kate was able to see Russia during her time in Alaska.

In other Kate news, E! News broke the story yesterday that Kate will be attending the Emmy Awards on Aug. 29. E! reports Kate will appear at the start of the show in a comedic segment with host Jimmy Fallon as well as “some of today’s biggest and brightest television stars.”

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.
