Kate Gosselin: Her kids can be filmed by TLC, labor officials say

Posted: 11:57 AM ET

by Lynette Rice

A spokeswoman for TLC confirmed an online report that Pennsylvania labor officials approved TLC’s request to film Kate and Jon Gosselin’s eight kids for the upcoming Kate Plus 8 specials.  An official for the state Department of Labor and Industry said the right paperwork was submitted and “the proper steps have been taken and the kids are permitted for ‘Kate Plus 8.’”

The children are not expected to participate in Twist of Kate,  a new TLC series debuting this summer in which the mother of eight will travel the country to meet families with challenges at work or at home and attempt to “walk a mile in their shoes.” In contrast, the series of Kate Plus 8 specials will focus on the divorced mom’s complicated home life, hence the need for approval from state labor officials for the kids’ involvement.

I wish this woman would just go away....PERMANENTLY! Why do they keep giving her chances to redeem herself? I just don't get the attraction here.

Kate Gosselin is the biggest phoney there is, she only sees dollar signs and not her children. Why are the networks so interested in her? Am glad her husband left her – he should have done this much earlier.

O.K. Larry seem to haave an infatuation with this female. I thought with her off DWTS..we would be so fortunate to have @ least 1 month K. Gosselin free!! Are your ratings that bad that you don't understand when ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!! Please if you have her on your show do not commend her for anything once more!!! Please change that picture....that smug smirk is IRRITATING!!!!!

I wonder if allowed the opportunity, her children wouldn't step into their shoes and walk the world to escape the exploitation they have been subject to...six of them since since birth. Out of the mouths of her babes will someday come words of contempt for a normal childhood denied. I have but one word for Kate...shame!

It is just our culture, you can do anything to make a buck.
I wonder what many of us would do if a pile of cash a mile high would smile at us.
We should have laws forbidding the exploitation of small children!!!

Is it a slow news week already!!! Give me a break – Kate Gosselin.
She has really learned the acting thing well, she can cry at the drop of a hat. Going around the country walking in others shows. H E L L O she is a germaphobe!

Kate Gosselin

I searched the Dictionary and Thesaurus all day to better describe your insatiable greed as you continue to exploit your children...'as a whole'...I was unable to find just one.

Oh dear, Kate and labor in the same headline.

How can the sheriff call himself an American when he speaks in such a derogatory manner about our Commander in Chief? You call that being an American? Now I'm really worried about his law!

I am happy that finally a state stood up and it is puting the law into practice and in place. This is a country of opportunity, but I don't know why people complaints about US. Why the ilegal don't go to Venezuela, Mexico and other countries. The mexican complaints about this country mistreating them, but they don't say how they mistreat their neighbors when they go through mexico to come to US. They treat them like dogs and animal. Why they don't go to Europe, Bumbai? They will be able to see why United States is the greatest country in the world.

Honestly, NO one should care. She is not bright or well spoken or well educated. She had these children as a stunt and the media is enabling her effort to completely mess-up them up.

She is a nothing. NO one should give a darn about her. She is what is wrong with this "celebrity" culture. She has no talent, no intellect. What about her is so interesting?

she is nuts she needs to be jailed and the father needs to have custody of those kids.

Cajazz76:24:8   April 27th, 2010 3:56 pm ET


Kate doesn't need to be jailed, maybe her bankrolled ego needs a bit of a withdrawal. To have her take up space in a prison would be a crime, since we already have 25% of the world's incarcerated behind bars.
