Please use this post for discussion about the Gosselins that doesn't have a better spot elsewhere. Also please remember that while Gosselin discussion is fading (which is a good thing), this blog is for Gosselins only. We will continue as long as Kate is seeking public attention for those who wish to comment.

November 22 has been reported as her return date.


cant believe TLC is doing this....Kate is over the are brats .



Kate Gosselin just broke her silence on son Colin, who's been sent away from the family home due to behavioral issues ... and reveals her relationship with ex-husband Jon Gosselin is only becoming more contentious!

In an exclusive interview with Extra, Kate revealed that Colin is still away from home, and that he's "chugging along." She continued, "It’s a family experience that we are dealing the best we can with. ... Everyone’s got their stuff. Another bump in the road and we're all doing the best that we can with it. I am confident he is in the best hands and receiving the best of what’s being offered for his situation." Good news, Kate!

She revealed that the hardest part was coming to terms with the fact that her son needed special care, and then moving along to get it for him. Kate admitted, "It’s kind of humbling when as a mom you have to admit that, 'I am not enough for what you need.' That’s kind of what I struggle with, but we're moving on."

"In life," she continued, sagedly, "it’s more about how you deal with the situation than the situation you were dealt."

As for Jon -- who she claims has been a thorn in her side from the get-go -- she revealed that the exes' "civil" relationship hasn't gotten any better. "I don’t have a relationship with him -- I’ve moved on. I support the kids and their relationship [with him] -- some visit, some choose not to, some visit sometimes," she explained. "[But] I support them and what they want so they can be happy and whole."

Many speculated that she and Jon would still be together as a married couple, and as a whole family, if it weren't for the infamous TLC show, but Kate revealed that things were going to end the way they ended no matter what television show they happened to be on -- or not. "All I can say is that a lot of people try to pigeonhole you and say reality TV led to [the split]," she maintained.

"The writing was already written on the wall, and I always say it [would have] ended the same way, except the world wouldn’t have known about it," she continued. "I think that along the way, the signs were there and it’s unfortunate regardless."

As for the big news -- Donald Trump's win of the Presidential Election, Kate ... who was formerly on Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice," weighed in on the shocking election results.

"That’s kind of a weird thing to think about because I knew him outside of and prior to 'Apprentice,'" she said. "I fully expect him to take his success in business and make our country successful. I hope that and hope that others can get behind him. I do know that at the heart of Donald Trump is a true and utter love of our country, and if he allows that to guide him, we will all be really happy."

Guess we know who she voted for, huh?

And about her hit show, "Kate Plus 8," she revealed that on the upcoming season -- which airs this Tuesday on TLC -- has a lot of surprises in store for its loyal viewers.

She revealed a few sneak peeks, and said, "This season kind of started filming early this year. You're gonna see a lot of stuff ... You’re going to see birthdays, a sixteenth birthday party; finally, the girls let me have a birthday party for them, big one! Mind you, they planned the party. I need to make that clear, because they’ll crucify me if they see this and I don’t make that clear ... It was their way, and so we'll see a 12th birthday party for the little kids."

She continued and talked about the family's travels and brand-new additions to her eight! "[We went on] trips, we visited New Orleans, we built an igloo this past winter -- it was super fun. We added two new family members that have fur -- they are my other children."

It really sounds like Kate's doing better than she has been in a long time ... and we're pretty excited to see it all play out beginning this Tuesday!


Kate Gosselin, appearing Monday in a pre-taped interview with Good Morning America's Amy Robach, defended recent claims made by her ex-husband Jon Gosselin regarding their 12-year-old son Collin Gosselin. Kate first revealed to People in August that Collin has special needs, and he moved out of the family's $1.1 million home in Wernersville, Penn., to enroll in a program that teaches "life skills" to help him overcome his "educational and social challenges."

"There's a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we've had for a very long time, and it's one I've dealt with on my own," the TLC reality star, 41, explained. "I've felt very alone in this."

Last week, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jon claimed Kate had kept him in the dark about Collin's whereabouts. "I have an idea where he is but I don't really know where he is," he said, adding that his ex-wife only told him Collin "is in a special school for special needs kids with behavioral problems." But, Jon claimed, law enforcement officials told him otherwise.

Jon—who has not seen Collin in over a year and a half—said he planned to ask a judge to force Kate to tell him where his son is. According to the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star, it's his only option. "I mean, I ask but she doesn't tell me," he said. "She doesn't answer any of my texts."

In Kate’s book, I Just Want You to Know, she wrote notes to all 8 of her children.

In the note to Collin, Kate called her son “sweet, kind and helpful” and praised his math skills, but revealed that he had a tendency to act out. “As you have grown, however, I must say you have also challenged my authority greatly…. At two and a half, you began testing and trying my parenting at every chance. I called Daddy at work many days crying because you would not obey. I had to ask you every day, ‘Who’s in charge here: you or me?’ You would reluctantly answer, ‘You are.’ As you have grown, this has not changed. You continue to be determined to do what you want to do, and I continue to try to rein you in.”

This was published in 2010, when Collin was SIX years old!!!!!!!!

Who writes a note like that to a six year old??!!?? And publishes it for the world to see?

Kate Gosselin has always appeared to be very masculine to me. I don't care if she bleaches that hair and wears it long, wears nasty looking fake nails and false eye lashes and has had 8 kids. She just does not seem feminine at all. And when she starts barking or making those stupid faces she reminds me of the camera hog Jim Bob Duggar. Yuk.

I agree Kate is one of the most unfeminine women out there-She missed her calling- She would have made a great drill sergeant in the Marine Corps- She should have made a career out of that instead of deceiving doctors in order to have sextuplets as her meal ticket- How unfair to them- I hope the party is finally over- I can't imagine TLC giving her another shot at TV after this fiasco of a season- and she can't live her easy life with her maids,cooks,gardeners and "babysitters" without TLC money- Am so looking forward to how Kate handles being one of the "little" people again-:)

I am quick to turn the station after Outdaughtered so I don't have to see that horrible Kate with her pathetic cry Gor attention.

I watched last night's episode about the twins 16th birthday party. I noticed a few contradictions. First Kate states that this is the first time Cara and Maddy allowed her to throw them a big birthday party, yet Maddy clearly makes a snarky remark ( one of many for the evening) that they finally get a birthday party instead of it being all about the sextuplets, as she goes on to snarkly comment " thanks a lot sextuplets!" I believe Maddy was making it clearly known that big birthday bashes were always for the little ones and never for Cara and Maddy once the sextuplets arrived. As Kate is falling apart over preparations for the party she looks straight at the camera and angrily states for " all the people" who are convinced she has hired help as in, a housekeeper , personal assistants and Nannies...No, she is doing it all alone! Yet she obviously has someone watching the young ones at home during the party. The party needed to be moved a different location because of the weather, which I found really odd since we have all seen the size of her walkout basement in previous episodes, it would have been plenty of room to accomadate the guests. I guess it's more fun for Kate to freak out over last minute changes in plans...and freak out she did. Even the kids roll their eyes at how dramatic she gets. I seriously wonder if Katie has a mental health issue?! She was just losing it over little things! Unless of course that is her way of getting more attention on camera than her children?
