Kate Gosselin's New Job

Posted: 10:25 AM ET


Kate Gosselin has been accused of many things in the past year, but laziness certainly isn’t one of them. In the four weeks since she was booted from Dancing with the Stars, the mother of eight has launched her new reality series, Twist of Kate and Kate Plus 8, and initiated a new gig as a special correspondent for ET.

“[It] has been extremely exciting to hold a microphone, and I found that I am loving this side of it,” Kate told PEOPLE backstage at Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars performance show, where she was conducting on-camera interviews. “I can talk. We all knew that, and so I really enjoy it.”

Though she finds it comfortable holding the mic backstage at the Dancing studio, the single mom also admits she still hasn’t gotten the hang of reporting from behind the ET news desk. “It’s something that I feel is like a challenge — sort of like dancing,” she said. “But I know I can conquer that one … the dancing, not so much!”

Adding “correspondent” to her growing resumé, which already includes reality-TV star, author, promotional speaker and mom of twins Cara and Mady and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel, is all part of Kate’s plan keep herself active and focused.

While her day-to-day routine has certainly changed, Kate insists life hasn’t exactly slowed down since she retired her dancing shoes. “You’re going at the speed of light and suddenly you slow down to like the speed of a car … but I’m not any less busy at all,” she said, adding that she gets the same amount of sleep every night despite no longer being part of the competition.

Love her or hate her.

But you've got to give the woman 100% marks for tenacity.

In spite of the JERK she unfortunately married, Kate will be a good provuder for her children, and the JERK can go and find a ROCK TO CRAWL UNDER.

really, who cares... she is just another person who works, give it up and stop trying to be famous and make your kids that too kate.

I don't know who she is - and I don't care who she is.

You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't. What she does is no-one's business but her own.

If she can do it, good on her.

Who relay cares ? Doesn't the media esp Larry King have some one better to cover ? Why would any any one want to raise there family on camera ? Dose any one care what impact this will have on the children 10 or 20 years from now ? All they are thinking about is making money. The views are responsible for encouraging this crazy behavior of reality shows.Circus animals have more rights than these poor kids who know how to preforming for candy and applause. Where is the father ? Does he not have any rights to stop this crazy woman abuse of his kids? Where are the social workers ?
Ooops ! rich lawyers know how to win with no conscience.....after all it all about $$$$$$ is it not ?

No wonder, jealousy, is always referred too by the color green

Green for ENVY

Give me a break Larry King. You continue to promote a woman who had too many children (using terrible judgment) and now wants to stay in the spotlight at the cost of who? Her children will and are paying for her poor judgments. And how much time has she spent raising how many children? Is it 8? Maybe one month out of their how many years life?

The silver lining. They will hate her when they grow up and realize what she did to them. She will end up being old, ugly and hated by all her children. Perfect.

At least Kate works and pays for her kids which is so different than the Aqua mom which tax payers have the joy of paying for. If the world was smart they would take away the kids and put her in jail for fraud.

If Kate was so horrible, why do you people waste your "precious" time talking about her...jealous? If I had 8 kids to support and didn't want to be on better believe I would do the same thing she's doing...$25,000 each episode. GO KATE!!!
