Kate Gosselin, star ofÂ Jon & Kate plus 8,Â Kate plus 8, andÂ ABC‘sÂ Dancing With the Stars, is gearing up for yet another reality TV venture withÂ TLC, a new show called Twist of Kate. While new episodes ofÂ Kate plus 8 will follow Gosselin and her eight children, Twist of Kate has an interesting and unique new concept. Keep reading for more details on what lengths Kate will go to on the new show…
Kate Gosselin seems to be everywhere these days! After starring in twoÂ TLC reality shows,Â Jon & Kate plus 8 andÂ Kate plus 8, the single mother of eight landed a gig competing onÂ ABC‘sÂ Dancing With the Stars and has her personal life consistently splashed all over the tabloids. Apparently that’s not enough though because Kate Gosselin is returning for yet another reality TV show. The newÂ TLC reality show is called Twist of Kate and will debut this summer with twelve episodes.
The new show will run in conjunction with severalÂ Kate plus 8 specialsÂ that feature Kate Gosselin raising her eight children and dealing with personal and legal woes from ex-husband, Jon Gosselin. While viewers will still get an insider’s glimpse into the Gosselin family life throughÂ Kate plus 8, Twist of Kate will give Gosselin the opportunity to interact and inspire her fans. Using real fan letters she’s received, Kate Gosselin will travel around the country to live life in somebody else’s shoes.
“I look at it as a loose concept,”Â Gosselin says.Â ”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.” In Twist of Kate, Gosselin will visit the homes and workplaces of her fans that are dealing with difficult circumstances of their own.Â ”She will be in that person’s shoes. And more often than not, it’s not going to be terribly comfortable for her,” saysÂ TLC chief Eileen O’Neill. “She’s game for things, but she also has limits and boundaries.”
Despite the new challenges, Kate Gosselin is eager for the opportunity to connect with her fans.Â ”The fact that people really support me and want the kids and I to do well … is flattering,” she says. “I never understood the importance of fans until we struggled and went through tough times.”
