Kate Gosselin and the kids are returning to the small screen!
From her wildly popular reality TV show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, to her current stint on Dancing with the Stars, Kate is a ratings magnet! The media darling is now set to star in her own new series, Twist of Kate, as well as several Kate Plus 8 specials, a rep for TLC confirms to USA Today.
As the title suggests, the Kate Plus 8 specials will focus on her life as a single mother and will costar her eight young children – 9-year-old twins Cara, Madelyn, and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel, who turn 6 next month – despite the series of well-publicized clashes between Kate and her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, over custody of the children.
Twist of Kate will begin airing this summer and will address fan mail from those inspired by her success story. “I look at it as a loose concept,” Kate says. “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.”
The 35-year-old mother of eight adds that she feels the love from her fans. “The fact that people really support me and want the kids and I to do well … is flattering. I never understood the importance of fans until we struggled and went through tough times.”
